kitchen confidential

i just saw the last episode of kitchen confidential and i have to say that it is pretty entertaining. it’s a little on the cheeky side at times, but i enjoyed it. i think that this show may definitely be a winner.

one of the things that i really like about the show is that there is a sincerity about the main character that kind of shows through, even though he’s a little rough around the edges.

new york moment

i was at this bar/club over the weekend and in my group of friends there were four jennys, a jackie, and a mimi. lots of “E”-ending names there. i kept forgetting names of people and so when i forgot, i would just guess “jenny”. turns out that i was right most of the time.

whenever ago…

ten years ago: i had just started college. it was hard waking up for my morning classes and i met my current roommate for the very first time. she thought i was weird.

five years ago: i broke up with the girl that i had dated for 6 years. everything was changing, i was changing. i was looking for new meaning, new purpose, a new life.

one year ago: i have been playing volleyball for a while, working at my job for a while, and things seemed to be pretty stable and secure.

one day ago: i had played one of the better games of volleyball that i’ve played in a while, but was one of the most stressful days i’ve had in a long time. i usually don’t feel stress, so to be stressed was a little unnerving.

one hour ago: i went to starbucks to get some coffee and went across the street to get a blueberry bagel.

ah, life is good.

so fast, so far

i just found out that a dear friend of mine has decided to uproot herself and move to boston. she didn’t really have any plans to do so until last saturday. saturday! she just decided she’s going to up and move clear across to the other side of the country. i can’t even imagine what that is going to be like.

i admire her, though. she is chasing after her dreams. she’s always been able to go into the unknown and face it with a great sense of courage. it makes me wonder if i can uproot myself like that and blindly follow my heart.

i’m going to be sad when she leaves, i was just getting used to having her around and we didn’t hang out nearly as much as we should have.
