Made a little video today, tried some new editing techniques. Can’t wait to have the time to build a real camera dolly so I can use all of the available frame.
There is this Irish pub in Austin Texas. It’s called B. D. Riley’s. The building was literally shipped to Austin from Dublin, I believe. It sits on 6th Street so it’s far from unknown. They have fantastic Shepherd’s Pie. I’ve only been here 3 times, but it’s my favorite bar, one of my favorite places in Austin, and definitely a place I’m going to miss when this project is over in a month.
Puppy (she only had a single puppy so we named the puppy Uno cause it’s freaking adorable) is about 4 or 5 now, ran off with another dog Thursday. My parents live basically on the middle of nowhere. Uno returned Saturday sometime and is fine.
But I’m so proud to see my mom use a social network in a meaningful way. She got her friends and a couple animal rescue groups in the area to share pictures of Uno in cause anyone came across her(Uno). Sure my mom posts the occasional crap that everyone else does but a majority of her posts are shares from rescue groups trying to find new homes for rescued animals. It’s just great to see that sites like Facebook can put to meaningful uses, at least for dogs.
An airline pilot today, a white guy in his 50s, gray hair.
He was making airplane sounds as he walked around people and obstacles.
It’s beautiful, the weather is great.
I’ve been flirted with 3 times, which is like 300% more than my yearly average. (I mean sure they where probably just being super nice, but I’m gonna go with flirting for now cause that makes me feel better about my self and I could really use some self confidence)
of traveling for work.
All the damn receipts you have to keep up with
On Missoula. It’s so quiet and so dark (once the sun actually sets). It’s nice. It feels like time slows down. My apartments don’t have central air conditioning, nor do they have built in ceiling fans, to cool the place I have the door and a window open. All I can hear are bugs and dogs (or coyotes) howling. (well now there is some dude on the phone talking about military men dying… No wait military men killing under orders, so that’s kinda hashing my mellow)
I…. Can definitely get use to this. (except for that guy its a bit late and I have to many feels for activism right now)
Shit shit shit shit.
Just got some scary news. It may not even impact me but if it does I’m totally screwed.
Not knowing if it does or doesn’t is the worst part.
Was tagged by hipsterclip :D

Rule 3: Tag new people & let them know you’ve tagged them
Rule 4: Smile ♥
Dems the rules.
1. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
How much I dislike being male. It’s not that I feel I should have been female, I have many of the stereotypical traits of both and identify with both at times. I just don’t like how the “average” male body looks, the general shape is flat, hard edged, and unappealing. And the clothes society has chosen for guys are just awful and uncomfortable (and hot). Some days I’m just social acceptance away from wearing a dress.
2. What upcoming event are you most excited about?
I’m moving from Austin Texas to Missoula Montana in 9 days, can’t wait to be in mountains again. Texas is depressingly flat.
3. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Not really first sight nor love, but sometimes when I first meet someone I get a feeling that my life is going to be different because of them.
4. What’s been the most exciting thing to happen to you this year?
Nothing? I became friends with some coworkers and we hang out every weekend. That’s exciting. Though I feel really bad about moving away from them and going back to being alone.
5. Describe your first kiss.
I said something snarky and she threw a shoe at me. She threw low and hit me in the balls. After I got off the ground we and a friend went inside to watch a movie. I went to pick from her selecting in her room, she joined me and apologize with a kiss.
6. Name a pet peeve or two.
Excessive noise. I feel that the world is so loud as it is that anything much louder that the background noise is just too loud. And apparently flat things.
7. Have you ever played Spin The Bottle?
I have. But everyone chickened out because it was 3 or 4 couples playing.
8. Tell me about your best friend.
He’s in the navy, recently got transfer orders to Milwaukee. I only see him maybe once or twice a year but when we can hang out it’s like we hang out everyday. He’s a cool dude. He’s had a bit of a run of bad luck recently, but he powers through it. It’s been said we have a “guys from Scrubs” kind of relationship.
9. What’s an item on your bucket list?
I’m not really sure. I think bucket lists should be for things that take years or tons of hard work. I guess if I had to put an item on a list, I’d say “Master a skill”. I’m a skill collector, I’ve done and tried many many things but I haven’t mastered one.
10. You have to get a tattoo on your wrist of one word. What is it?
11. Are you happy?
No. Yes? Sometimes.
My Q’s. Would these wonderful folk please do this (if you like, it’s cool if you don’t)?
1. What’s a skill you wish you had?
2. What one element from “the future”/”world of tomorrow” do you wish existed?
3. One person, one way, high chance of success and survival trip to Mars or any other non-human visited planet. Would you go?
4. How do you feel about your family?
5. Where do you want to go?
6. What age are you or have you been most excited to be?
7. What item do you most wished you owned?
8. Would you want to live in a Pokemon world where you fight, love, eat, and live with everyday things that are sentient on some level?
9. What cliche teenager/college kid thing did you never do but wish you had?
10. What’s special about your favorite place?
11. How have you been?
In two weeks I’ll be driving across the country to my place in Montana. That sometimes still feels weird to say.
Can’t wait to get my hike/photography on :D
I come to the realization that the future, the “world of tomorrow”, will never happen in my lifetime. If at all.
We have the need, want, and ability for, in today’s standards, super fast internet. Internet that is 100 or 1000 times faster for most of the US . The innovation that would stem from moving information that quickly would change the world. But we can’t have it because companies like Comcast, a cable company, an entertainment provider.
We have devices like Google Glass that thanks to misuse, but primarily perceived misuse, people have turned their backs on. Who knows how long it will be before we see how useful a hands free easy access device could be.
There’s nothing more boring than listening to someone talk about their dreams; everyone stopped listening about the world of tomorrow. There are few things that make me more sad than that.
Just signed the lease for my apartment. I’m moving to Missoula Montana.
I hope this isn’t a mistake. A very expensive literally moving across the country mistake.
