New Years resolutions?
Get in better shape, become a better dancer/guitarist/swimmer, become a better person? Fuck that, let’s go deeper, and continue what has been a “lifelong resolution” for me: get motivated, be passionate in what you do, stay humble, and live every moment like it’s your last. If I can do that, all those little “New Years resolutions” will be fulfilled...
you were one beastly difficult yet extremely fun year, and I will seriously miss all the challenges and good times you’ve given me. As for you, 2012, BRING IT.

That feeling you get,
when you’re making a u-turn and don’t think you’ll make it, yet you do… just barely.
Damn, I forgot how tiring it is to teach choreography as thoroughly as I do with those kids. Doing a swag piece full-out for four hours straight isn’t exactly a walk in the park, haha. Regardless, it was hella fun to teach these guys again, and I’m definitely looking forward to these next two weeks. On the real tho, I’m gonna be fuggin’ sore tomorrow morning… and I...
Dropped Shane Battier for Metta World Peace. My roster’s getting fairly Laker-heavy now, hahaha. Battier only plays SF, while World Peace can play three positions (SG, SF, PF), offering me greater flexibility as far as line-ups are concerned. World Peace has been getting his game on lately as well, and I’m hoping he’ll continue to improve as the season goes on. Battier, on...
being a math major and all, you get really, really good at doing certain calculations in your head. Considering all that busywork that’s involved with simplifying problems, combined with the fact that most professors don’t allow calculators on exams and the fact that you usually don’t have much time to complete those exams, you get hella-fuggin’ efficient at adding fairly...

aldwinron: Move nigga, get out the way, if I see you on the highway get the fuck out of my way. This is how you make sure the kid doesn’t fuck with your daughter, HAHA.
It hurts more when I fall on it with the impact below the wrist. When I fall and...– Kobe on the torn ligament in his right wrist (via aldwinron)
Swam a mile, finished the piece I’m gonna teach on Wednesday, and learned a choreo by Jun Quemado? Not a bad night.

d-r3volution: judyleeeee: Put any of the following numbers into my ask: Your ex texted you and wanted you back. Would you take him/her back? Has anyone told you “forever and ever” then left? Your relationship status? Where did you meet your crush(es)? Have you ever lost a close friend? Do you smoke weed regularly? Think back to the beginning of 2011. Are you still...
2011 is almost over. Inbox me something you've...
juliantalens: :) You know, I’m actually really curious on this one.
get your shit together. Hustle, damn it. You guys are giving away too many open looks, and not enough rebounds. Make those shots, too. You guys are still a championship-contending team—you just gotta work harder to make everything fit together. Although, let’s be real—the referees were biased against the Lakers this time around. The dude was wasting time in the final...
The draft went pretty well and I was able to build a relatively decent team, but I’m still learning as I go. This is my first time playing it, and it’s turning out to be far more complicated than I had initially thought. The draft took almost two hours, and I was stressing balls as I was trying to figure out who would be good for my team, LOL. This shit’s intense. My team...
at least the Clippers won; I’m happy with that. No, I’m not bandwagoning. They’re an LA team too, and since I’ve grown up recognizing no sense of rivalry between the Lakers and Clippers, I’ve rooted for both teams. I’m a Laker fan at heart, but when they’re not facing each other, I always root for the hometown team. They’re not a bad team this...
I’ve never been so pissed about the Lakers losing a game. It’s only the first game of the season, too. I guess I’m just really feeling this season. Still tho, that feeling of basketball magic every time Kobe makes a shot. Unmistakable.
Thunder vs. Bulls Thunder vs. Heat Lakers vs. Bulls Lakers vs. Heat Mavs vs. Bulls Mavs vs. Heat Maybe? Maybe not. Based on everything I’m reading, I feel like one of these will be the match-up. We’ll see how it goes as the season progresses.
expressindaily replied to your post: Finishing choreography, what song?! you’ll find out at practice! >:]
Honestly, I don’t even care about the presents anymore. In the end, all I could ever ask for is to spend the day with my family. Material presents are just a tiny bonus to everything. Merry Christmas, everybody. Be grateful for what you’ve got, and most importantly, spend time with your loved ones.
the last 8-count or so, is always the hardest part to do out of the entire combo. It’s like the conclusion to some bad-ass paper you wrote—you gotta make everything, well, conclude. Things need to wrap up and complete, connoting a sense of conclusion (or better yet, climax) while leaving the audience asking for more. I gotta keep things simple for the kids so I can’t quite...
Two weeks down, two weeks to go.
Ngarg, I’ve been neglecting my daily swims these past few days because I’ve been so busy. Gotta get back onto that shiz. One mile per day. No excuses. Oh, and choreography too. Practice (and maybe even hell-week[s]) with the St. Boniface kids starts next week, so I gotta get those pieces done and on lockdown. Blocking too. Apparently I’m choreographing a piece for a...
Yet another fun day to cap an amazing week.
I went to Ground Zero, an all-styles & b-boy battle event near downtown LA with Philip, Kevin, and Hannah. It was craaazy.. so many good bboys, however nobody had good style. This one old dude though, Bboy Gonzo, did this crazy-ass power move in one of his battles where he started with a headspin with a bicycle helmet on, transitioned into a no-hands windmill while taking off his helmet, and...
Today was a chill-ass day with chill-ass people.
Woke up at 2pm, and started my day by going over to Vicky’s “Bachelor Pad” for a good ol’ jam session and some catching up, which turned out to be really fun. It’s not often that I get to jam with people (especially girls) who listen to all metal/emo/hardcore stuff I listened to back in the day, and it was a definitely a refreshing experience. After that, I headed...
because praise music never fails to relax me.

This is why Kobe’s my #1 source of inspiration. Good or bad, he gives it his all. That work ethic. That drive. That hunger. It’s unbeatable.
It’s raw videos like these that let you see how fully guys like Brian Puspos commit to every move.
I’m starting to feel like creating another blog for my more personal thoughts—this one’s getting just a little too public for my tastes. Of course, I won’t announce its creation to the world if I do end up making it, but I’ll probably only follow my closest friends. It’ll probably password protected too, even though I won’t post anything too personal or...
