I got a job! I start on the 27th. Details to come later.
So the deal I made with my dad was that now that I'm an unemployed college graduate, I need to start looking for a full time job as my full time job.
My coworker invited me into the deep recesses of the LEGO warehouse where we found some old dusty costumes!
I was too tall for the mini figure costume, but I totally fit into the alien!
Did you know I was a pro skateboarder and an actor extraordinaire?
It's true. I'm trying to start a marketing career and trying to step away from all of this limelight, but it's just so hard when you're Lucas Lee.
My last spring break has finally arrived and while I had planned to go hike part of the Appalachian Trail, I'm going to be stuck in Connecticut instead. I'm sure it's for the best as I'll get to take some time to sit alone, in the dark, moaning about the lack of activities in my life.
Just kidding... I'm not that bleak...
I am going to enjoy the time to myself though. I'm going to spend most o the time, getting $#|T done (like fixing my broken computer and car) and preparing myself for impending interviews.
I'm sort of glad I have a week off to catch up on all this work since I am straight up swamped. Although I may not show it, and often don't feel this way, but it's a challenge to take 7 classes and work an internship. Don't get me wrong, I'm in ove with what I'm doing, it's just tough getting all the thing I need to get done.
I've already done a preliminary spring cleaning of my room and I was able to hang up some of my bow ties. I swear I'll start selling them again soon, but like I said I'm swamped.
Beyond all that, since most of my friends are doing cool things over break and won't be around, I'm going to unplug myself from social media, at least for a while to get refreshed, re energized and rediscover my own personal brand.
I hope to whoever is reading this... You have a good time this next week and I challenge you to take at least a night to yourself, unplugged from society, and reflect on your life.
Well it's been like 4 months since I last posted anything on here.
I've travelled to Japan, started my final semester at UConn and I'm looking to get employed full time.
It's a busy time for me, but I know I shouldn't be neglecting this site (even though no one really comes to it).
The thing that's been on my mind these past few weeks is Storytelling. Now I wrote that with a capital "S" because I see the difference in it like capital "L"-Litirature. It's an art, a craft and if it's well done a transformative experience that makes a person immortal.
Now yes I know Literature is storytelling and written Storytelling would be considered Litirature, but I'm really interested in the spoken aspect of it all.
One of my favorite movies, 'Big Fish' directed by Tim Burton, touches upon some themes that I struggle to, not embrace, but maybe the right word is utilize?
I feel that good Storytelling gives you that situation-problem-resolution structure that people are so used to hearing; but great Storytelling invokes inspiration and imagination in the listener. In 'Big Fidh' the main character, Will, resents his father for embellishing his life stories. The film beautifully retells these pieces in a fluid stream of past and present day timelines.
I honestly may have already lost you already reader and this is one of the things I want to work on. I want to embellish my stories so they aren't flat out lies, but they are pieces of my life that I will be proud to recount and that others may use when I am gone.
Maybe that's being selfish, especially since the Internet will make immortals of us all, but I still am working on these skills and hope to one day master it.
I'm going to post something about my Japan trip. No guerentees on when, but I'm going to try to make it as interesting as possible, I can promise you that.
