Muffy replaces mournful entry with something more positive...but still boring as f***
Thursday. 10.20.11 2:07 pm
I just typed a long entry about holding things in, and hurting, and a whole lot of other sad stuff...and then I deleted it. Because I just needed time to settle and cool down. I just get really riled up in particular moments....bleh. On the bright side, I feel really excited about the direction that my life is going (aside from a few things that I wish would HURRY UP)! I'm very excited about my major now, more on that later. I went to a meeting with QMG (Queer Men's Group) on campus and it was....interesting! But I'm hoping to connect a little bit more with the community as time goes on. Not sure how I like the name but that's ok. Labels gonna label. Haters gonna hate.

Yay, so I succeeded in posting a nice little update instead of a sorrowful one. I'm about to board a plane to Michigan, and I hope everybody has a fantastic weekend!

Muffy's Musings:
This is how I typed the whole other entry before I deleted it

Over and out :)

Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
Muffy sucks at entry titles

I don't even knooooow what just happened....here I was typing an entry when my hand slipped a little down the keyboard and then all this shit went down in my browser and the Nutang page got replaced with my hotmail inbox, and there was no trace of Nutang to be found in the browser history. Freaking Apple.

Anyway, I've decided today that I need to stop creeping on Facebook, because it is just not healthy. I had a REALLY funny typo in my last draft of this entry where I accidentally said "I need to stalk creeping on Facebook" instead of *stop creeping....but now I can't recreate it again because the damn hotkeys ruined everything.

*sigh*...so bitter.

However, creeping blogs on Tumblr is not nearly as bad, so I will continue doing that.

The Avengers trailer omgz!!11!

The past 3 nights I've gone to bed mad, and I don't know why. Well, I kind of know why, but it's not really anything that I should be mad about. It's just one of those frustrated, trapped kind of feelings, I think...but I'm going to have to work on changing it. I just hate that every time I want something to change in my life, I have to work on it alone.

Whatever, no more sordid talk. Done with that. How about you people go trip on this instead, in today's round of MUFFY'S MUSINGS.


Stare at this for 20 seconds, and then observe the world.....or should I say, WHIRLd????


Also trippy....tipping with PI

It begins anew

School! The new year. I'm not sure at what point in my life that I'll start considering the "new year" to follow the actual calendar instead of the academic one...

I really love using my brain again. Being around smarties makes me want to be smarter, which I love. I'm also having to use my brain a lot since all the egotistical authors of academic literature insist on writing to SOUND smart instead of writing about something to actually BE smart. Jeez people...write something to make a point, not to see how many times you can use the word "hitherto" or "amplitude."

I am feeling much, much better than when I wrote last .

So...Steve Jobs, huh? I was pretty much in shock. Now the thing that's astounding me is how responsive the world was to his death...except that I have to wonder if people really know what they're posting about when they make "RIP Steve Jobs" statuses on Facebook. Yes....he helped pioneer the iPhone, iPod, and the iThis and iThat. But from watching his interviews and speeches he was a very smart man...and I feel like sometimes people only see him as the CEO of a great company.

Anyways, blah blah blah....

The internet is full of hilarious shit. Behold.

And also some of the most adorable shit...I literally went "Awwwww" when I saw this...and I NEVER do that. I don't know why, but it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside...and maybe a little more hopeful, too



I'm updating from the airport, about to fly to Tennessee! Have a wonderful day, everyone. Muffy over and out

The upward climb
Wednesday. 9.28.11 12:31 am
Oh Nutang.

I am really quite dumb, you know.

I just spent the last half hour writing out this melancholy post about sad feelings and troubles in my life....but when it came time to "Create this Awesome Entry"...it just didn't seem worth it. I think that just writing it all down helped get it out of my system, and good thing for you too! As much as I know you guys are 100% supportive and helpful, it's never fun to have to read a downer entry!

So, let's get on with the good stuff!

2 weekends ago I performed with Circus of Dreams, a part of the Children's Hospital Guild Association in Seattle. We did 2 shows and, along with our fellow performers, raised of $100,000 for cancer research! Watch our show below ... (I'm the guy in the red jersey and baseball cap...totally gangsta)



School starts tomorrow aaaah! It really doesn't feel like it. I'm taking computer networks, fundamentals of interactive design, and informatics research methods. Should be a fun quarter!

I'm also doing a lot of coaching with the team, and I LOVE it. Working with the kids is great. I've also done two outstanding workshops with a team in Michigan and a team in Abbotsford, Canada. Both have reminded me why I love jumping rope, and I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming workshop season!

What I'm not looking forward to is the amount of school I'm missing in order to fly every weekend haha...I'm even skipping 3 consecutive days of school in October to fly to Pairs....ahh! It's going to be a blast, I just have to keep reminding myself that school isn't THAT important....*knock on wood*

My buddy LJ stayed for 10 days with me....love that kid. We got him drunk one night (he never drinks! the first time he drank was for my 21st bday) and he ended up throwing up...ALL OVER MY BED. Hahah...he was sleeping on the top bunk and he threw up all over the side and onto my whole right arm below. Good thing I love him so much, because he made a freaking MESS. Stayed up till 7am washing and cleaning up!

I'm really not writing a very articulate entry, but that's because it's late and I'm just jotting down an update on rapid fire. I will try to be around here more often!

Muffy's To-do list for internet strangers:
  • Nutang skype session!
  • Create a piano tutorial for the people on youtube who keep bugging me about it!


That's about it for now, folks. Stay classy. Muffy over and out

I have been feeling very nostalgic, and very much aware that I'm growing up lately.

So...this made me cry :(

Starry Night
Wednesday. 8.24.11 2:02 am
Driving back from Seattle at 1-something AM is so theraputic and gives me the best feeling. I feel free. Going through Capitol Hill, across Lake Washington, listening to the a late-night radio program (LoveLine on 107.7, great show) after having enjoyed some beers with friends. It's liberating.

Tonight is special though.

I've always had a thing for the night. I love the day, the sun, and the sunset...but the night is when I feel the closest to the heart of the universe. The world grows quiet, peaceful, and the universe reveals itself.

Tonight there is not a cloud in sight, and all I can see are stars. I got out of my car and looked up...and just kept looking.

I walked further up the hill to where it was completely dark, and laid down on the sidewalk. The view was beautiful, and so vast. There was the universe, spread in all directions, like someone had just thrown a blanket over the world to help it sleep. At times it felt like it was a blanket that I could just reach up and touch, and other times it was like the world went on forever.

I found this little star in between all the other ones, and it made me smile. It felt like my star, for some reason. I think it was because no one else in the world was staring at it, so small and tucked away into the night. No on else in the world knows my star exists, except for you guys of course :) I'm sure some astronomer found it and gave it a name...but they never saw it like I did. They never found it like I did...so it's my star. I don't know if I'll ever see it again, but if I do, it'll probably make me feel the same way. I thought about this little star, and how it deceived me. What seemed to be a tiny pinprick against the dark backdrop of space was actually a raging ball of energy that completely defied my comprehension of what could and couldn't exist in this world. But there it was, a little dot of light thousands, maybe millions of light years away, and it made me smile.

I had become completely immersed in the magic that was unfolding above my head when I was interrupted by a very human problem...I had to pee.

I went inside and sat down on my computer (after relieving myself, of course). I knew I was going to have to blog about this. Some of your names flashed through my head, because I hoped I could impart a fraction of what I felt. But I just couldn't get away from the sky...so I went back outside. I found my star again, and it made me smile :)

All of this put me back in touch with what I'd been looking for. It had felt like something was missing for a while, like I was just sort of wandering through life without really paying it much attention. It made me suddenly appreciate, and wonder, and feel totally small and totally human. But most importantly...it made just made me FEEL.

I -- WE --all have to live for those moments. The night sky isn't something you see...it's something you experience. How can you capture an experience? But if you could, would you want to? Life is all about living for those moments and finding new ones.



Drag yourself a quarter of a million miles away from your problems and struggles...and see what you find. I hope it's a moment that you'll want to live for over, and over.

Muffy fails at remembering what to blog about
Saturday. 8.20.11 3:54 pm
Helllooooooooo.

Lots of happenings. Lots of happenings indeed.

I turned 21 and had a great time until I threw up all over the place! Actually, that's not true. I'm very good at making sure I get it into the toilet or on the lawn...good for fertilizing. Seriously though, going out to bars is sooooo much better than stupid house parties. Yeah, it's a little bit more expensive, but whatever. It's a lot more fun. Can't wait to go out and meet people :)

Me and Chad had a great time in Seattle, but things are over between us now. See entry below. We are still great friends though and will definitely keep in touch.

Ok wait I feel like there were waaaaay more things to talk about. Wtf? This always happens when I try to blog. Hmmmm..............I'll have to prepare myself better next time.

Are we really going to do this Nutang skype session or what??? I'm down. I'm ready for awkwardness. Does everyone have G+? We could do a Hangout. That would be hilarious.

Speaking of G+, I've wasted way too much time on some stupid game called Edgeworld....I'm slowly weening myself off of it, but my friends are trying to convince me to play League of Legends, which I feel like could absorb my life in a very bad way.

Sooooo pumped for THE AVENGERS MOVIE.

Yup that's about it...for now. Muffy over and out.
