I've been playing Violin since July of last year.. I stopped my lessons 2 months ago because I didn't like the teacher and it was costing way too much to learn so little. I've been teaching myself along with using youtube videos of people playing the same songs.

Now I'm through the first book of Suzuki violin in only 6 months of playing. I've been told that it takes around a year to a year and a half to get through the first book, its nice to have some kind of musical background to draw from as well as the ability to learn very quickly. I'm pretty proud of myself.

I'm starting lessons again next month from a much more involved teacher at the local music shop. Hopefully I'll progress fast! I would really like to join some kind of orchestra within a year or so.

Heart attacks :/

So this morning I was sitting behind someone in line for parking at Fred Meyers so I could get some Starbucks. The car in front of me had no one in front of them and wasn't moving so I looked to see what was going on. The guy driving was writhing in pain and his wife in the passenger seat was freaking out. I ran up to the window and opened the door and she told me to call 911 because he was having a heart attack.

I called 911 and stayed with him until the ambulance got there.. I didn't really know what to do so I just talked him through the pain and got him to breathe. When the ambulance arrived I sat with his wife until the paramedics came over to talk to her then I decided it was best if I left.

She thanked me a million times for being so quick to come see if everything was alright and for helping as much as I did. I didn't even think about it, I think I naturally pay a lot of attention to whats going on around me and I'm really observant... I think most people would have just started to blow their horn and may have made matters worse.

After that little adrenaline rush I walked over to Starbucks and downed an entire Venti White chocolate mocha while I waited for my car to be unblocked by various emergency vehicles.. Scary experience... I hope no one near me has a heart attack anytime soon, don't think I could handle that.

I hope he's okay...

He "doesn't really want a relationship right now" but he still wants to be friends.. What the fuck.. Lead me on for 3 weeks until it's obvious that I'm getting attached and then drop me into a pit..

Oh.. And, my backpack was stolen at Oaks Park last night.. Had all of my new clothes and a bunch of other fun stuff.

Fucking greeat weekend.

Drunk Josh..

Spent a few hours downtown at Silverado/Embers after work tonight. Got pretty drunk and then decided to go to the Escape.

I was by myself the entire time and actually had quite a lot of fun. Struck up a conversation with a cute guy and a girl that was with him. Talked a little then while dancing I saw him on the other side of the dance floor, he looked at me and smiled and nodded. I melted of course.

I saw a friend from Elementary school's older brother at Silverado... I used to have a crush on him... even in 5th grade. He remembered me, it was crazy. :)


As of Monday I'll be living at 134th and Powell in SE Portland... Its probably a temporary thing until I find a place with someone I know from FinalGear forums... but its fine with me. $330/mo rent with utilities included is waaay less than I wanted to spend on a place so I'm totally cool with it.

HOpe you guys have had a good weekend.. I work tomorrow from 5PM-9:30PM at Noodles... if you're in the area, you should stop by and say hi! :)

when did I become such a negative person? I am almost always in a bad mood or depressed now and have not been a good friend to anyone at all.. I used to be so happy and positive, and looking back, I don't see how anything was much different.. Maybe I'm just tired of life taking a shit on me. I dunno. I hate being this way.

Just finished a phone interview with Wells Fargo in Portland, waiting for a callback for a second interview. If I get this job I'm going to want to find a place to live closer to Portland..
