No sleep till Brooklyn!


Well I kind of have some serious insomnia at the moment. It was a positive night though. I met all of the staff that I am going to be working with this summer, both on site and off site. They were all pretty nice. Of course everybody made the stupid, hey look a student showed up 3 weeks early for camp! Joke. But once that got old, we all got down to the business of getting to know each other. The graphics guys compared portfolios, and of course mine was the most impressive. Then we talked about where we are going to school and what brought us to this organization, and then we all went to dinner. After dinner, most of the guys went off to a bar, but unfortunately I did not think that I should pull out my fake ID and go with them. So instead I met up with some friends from NYU that are there for summer school and I went out drinking with them instead!
It was a great time, the problem was that I didn't factor in the fact that I needed to walk pretty far to get back to my hotel. My hotel is in Battery Park, and the closest subway exit puts me on the far side of the World Trade Center! You have no idea how hard it is to walk 20 blocks while completely trashed and limping from serious back spasms! Atleast I had my new Pimp cane to support my weight, although I think I tripped over it more than it actually aided my walk!
When I finally got back to the hotel I went straight for the tub and I soaked in scalding hot water until my back stopped screaming at me. Then I got out and took some Ibuprofen, and now I can not sleep!!I am not exactly nervous about tomorrow, its just that being back in this city brings back a lot of old memories. I was so young when I first came to this city, and I was so ignorant to how the world really worked. I grew up a lot that year that I spent here and for that I will always be grateful to NYC, but it definitely is not the city for me.
tomorrow I have a three hour break in the middle of my day and I have decided to go have lunch with an old friend, well I guess the more accurate term would be old girlfriend. We are going to Serendipty's because I have been craving a frozen hot chocolate for like 4 months! Anyway I think that this is what is causing my lack of sleep. I usually go to NYC every 4 months. I was there in December, and we sort of hooked up like we always do. Besides the whole sex part, we have a pretty good relationship and I enjoy her company in a BIG way. So I am thinking about telling her that I am gay. I can see this not ending well because I had sex with her in December, but I am pretty excited about her knowing. The reason being she is completely safe to tell since she is insulated from my life in LA. Plus I am back to NYC again at the end of the summer, and then again in December, and she might figure out something is up when I don't sleep with her at any point in my visits. I am such the stallion that girls just can't get enough of me! hahaha!
This blog is a horrible influence on me! Ever since I started it I feel the need to tell everybody that is even remotely important to me that I am gay! I feel like Peter Parker in Spider Man 2 when he keeps on taking off his mask for everybody that he runs into! Anyway, my picture. This is my idea of a "WASP". I made this a few years ago immediately after I read the word in a book and then looked it up online because I had no idea what it meant! It was an intriguing word. I don't really know why I am so fascinated with this word, but it really does hold my interest! I wonder if anybody will get what I was trying to say when I made this. Oh yeah and my blog title! I thought that it was fitting because that song is stuck in my head, and I am not planning on going to Brooklyn, so its fitting because I am probably not going to get any sleep either!

Hahaha! I LOVE this picture! If I had any imagination this is exactly waht I think a wasp should look like! You should put this on a shirt and seel it to actual wasps, I am pretty sure that they would wear it with pride! I think that you have a low opinion of wasps. In this picture he's fat and scary looking, and he has that creepy hipnotism eye. There is also the bloody scissors and the dollar sign belt! This dude is defintely not on the level. I also like all of the trademaorks that are all over this picture. They are floating over his head and on his shoes. This is a really awesome pic. I can totally see this in the New York Times on the editorial page. You are a really talented person.

I don't think that you should tell your friend. SHe might take it personally and lose confidence in herself. Girls really are that narcisistic! Jus ttell her that you have met someone and you don't think that you can continue to have this casual thing anymore, because you would feel like you are betraying the new person in your life. You definitely need to get yourself a couple of fag hags to discuss important topics such as this. I love your WASP, I am a wasp, not like the one that you drew, but that would be my father, metaphorically of course! My father isn't nearly that blue or tall!

I love the WASP picture, I am happy that you were able to find your groove with your co-workers, and I do not think that you should tell your friend with priveliges that you are gay! I think that she might take it personally! Our generation grew up with Dawson's Creek! You remember what happened to Joey when Jack told her that he was gay right!? Okay maybe I don't remember either, but I am pretty sure that she freaked out. I do not think that this would be a positive experience for you. You should think about this before you commit to anything because maybe it would just be best to tell her that you can't have this casual relationship anymore and the long distance thing would just kill you. She will feel special that you can't have a long distance thing because you don't want to be in a casual relationship and also that you couldn't be with her unless you could be around her all the time. I know that lying sucks but in this case I don't see much of an alternative in your situation.

I feel like you are overthinking this whole situation with your "friend". Just be natural with her, and if the conversation leads you to your sexuallity then tell her, and if there is never a situation that calls for it, keep it to yourself. I love your WASP picture. It is really wierd that you post that because I just used this word today in a sentence, and its not everyday when you get to use it. Then I log on and check out your blog and there it is! The funny thing is, except for the rediculous detail, your wasp is a lot like the wasp that I picture in my head. You must have been scanning my brain as I slept, even though I live in South Dakota... I hope that your weekend goes well, and you keep up ending on top!

Well i don't think that you are going to get to read this before you go to lunch with yiur friend, but I think that you should do whatever you think is best. And if that means telling her that you like boys, then that means telling her! Don't hold back who you are, because you can't help it. She will appreciate your honesty unless she is a completely irrational crazy person. After all she is a chick and that is completely possible! HAHA! Well good luck with all the other things that you have to do still!

I love this picture. I would know that you were gay just by your artwork! Straight people just aren't that creative and talented. You are a cool cat, and this is why you are going to have an easy time this weekend. I hope that you were able to get some sleep last night. Have a good day, and don't stress out too much.

Josh said...

This is my favorite picture of yours that you have ever posted! I think that you draw a lot like you write. That shows a lot about your personality and the honesty and the genuiness that you put into both. You are an amazing and creative person and I know that you are going to breeze through this weekend with the stuffy old people.

Rodney said...

For me every new picture that you post is my new favorite picture! I don't think that I will be able to deal when you post a picture one day and it is only so-so. You are a Banksy fan, and I am a Eric fan! I think that your stuff is fun and interesting! I know that you are going to continue to impress your co-workers and have a great time.

Just thought you'd like to know that while you're mixing your fun and business in NYC: "Ray Bay" was a hot and sunny 86 degrees. Right near the pier, one surfer just missed a sting when he jumped off his board as he was coming in. Wow! Nice weather.

Jonathan said...

I can't figure out why you would want to do something like this in good conciounce! It just does not seem like a good idea and it seems very selfish of you to not take this other persn's feelings into cosideration. I mean you were pretending to be straight with this person for a very long time and she does not deserve to be just disregaurded so easily. Before you make any decisions make sure and way the pros and cons of making a decision like this. There are more feelings in the world than just yours!

I was just wondering how your weekend went... I hope it all went well and you didn't get homesick or anything. I am pretty sure that you blew everybody away, and that everyone was very impressed with you.I love your WASP! It is just how I excpected a WASp to look without actually thinking about what a WASP was supposed to look like.
