One More Week in NJ

Since I am heading out of New Jersey back to New England again i thought I would take a look back on all of the stuff that happened and things I accomplished in the year I have been living in New Jersey:

  • Lost my partner/best friend and my father within a month period.  Did my best to be strong for family and my dad's friends.
  • Reconnected with many amazing NJ/NYC/DC friends and comrades.
  • Paid off all my student loans!
  • Bought a car
  • Spent quality time with family including my brother and his amazing partner.
  • worked at a warehouse here for over a year and really learned a lot.
  • Really upped my game in soccer and scored goals playing against former professional players from Colombia.
  • Substantially improved my Spanish and Mexican slang.
  • Read a ton of books... both political and fiction. 
  • Did a ton of writing and thinking and believe that I have a much better conception of my politics.  Gave a talk on this at a bookfair in Scranton and was very happy with the results
  • witnessed some badass black lives matters demos.
  • Saw a bunch of sick shows with bands such as Electric Wizard and Pallbearer.
  • Greatly improved my mental and physical health from where I was a year ago.
  • Ate soooo many pupusas and pizzas.

  1. This place was very comfortable. Restrooms were decent. Coming here with my friends was an amazing experience. This is my favorite place for private parties Los Angeles now, because of its excellent food, perfect lighting, vibrant atmosphere and great ventilation.
