Quick apology...

I just wanted to say sorry for anyone who may be reading this blog. I haven't posted anything lately and I wanted to say sorry for that. It has been a crazy couple weeks and this has left me with little energy to write anything. I will try to post something sometime this weekend and it will be about my recent experiences in the outdoors. In this post I will most likely lay out my views of the environment and how we need to protect it.

Lupe Grajeda...

Well this has been an odd couple days. This past weekend one of my little brother's best friends was struck and killed by a car. This has left the whole community in shock, Lupe was a pretty popular person. What's even worse is that this is the second time his family has suffered such a loss. I cannot even begin to fathom what kind of pain his family is going through right now. The only thing I can really do now is send my condolences to his family.

This event has left me thinking about how just random life can be. Up to the point where I received news of his death, I was having a pretty good weekend. I was out and about with my friends, drinking a little bit and just having a good time. Then all of a sudden my phone goes off, it was my cousin. A good time interrupted just like that with horrible news. I would have never imagined that something so horrible could have happened that weekend, it just came out of nowhere.

From now on I will make sure to appreciate the time I have on this earth, I never know what can happen.

RIP Lupe.

The why...

OK so I have been thinking about why exactly I created this blog. To be honest it was completely on impulse. I have never considered myself to be a writer, so I had never really considered opening up a blog. Lately though, I have been reading more and more blogs. Before long I began to enjoy the whole concept of keeping a log of your own personal thoughts and opinions, a log in which others could read as well and add in their own comments about your thoughts.

Before long I decided that it would be a good idea to make my own blog. However, I probably should have thought it out more thoroughly. I am still unsure of how I am going to structure all of this, or even if there will be some kind of theme. Eventually I'll figure it out, and I will make sure to update as often as my mind will allow me.

This is something that I have though about doing for some quite some time. Honestly the only real reason why I didn't create one earlier is because I have never really thought that my life is interesting enough. Whatever, I'll just write about anything and anything that my mind can come up with. Whether it be about politics, or the joys of doing yard work when it's hot as hell outside. I haven't been writing all that many papers lately, so please excuse the lack of grammar, or the poor structuring of my entries, I will work on that as time goes on.

So let's just get into a little introduction of myself. I am a 22 year old second generation immigrant who doesn't really care about his ancestry. Sure I really like my heritage, but it is more a matter of curiosity than anything. I have always thought that defining yourself by your heritage is one of the most ridiculous things you can ever do. Sure I still partake in the Hispanic culture, it's kind of hard not to when your entire family is from Mexico, but I never call myself Mexican. I am an American, nothing more to it.

I am currently going to a community college. This was not my original plan back in high school. Back in high school I had always thought that my own intelligence and know how would pave the way for me to get into college, and for the most part this was true. I received a relatively high SAT score, so this allowed me to get into pretty much whatever public college in I wanted to in my state. Unfortunately this attitude really came back to bite me in the ass later on. You see, with that attitude I pretty much neglected to get involved at my high school. I even neglected to do any work back in high school, always tried to take the easy route. The result of all this was me only having a 2.3GPA in high school. So then comes time for me to get into college only to find out that I don't qualify for pretty much any scholarship. At first I am like " Whatever, financial aid will help me." Financial did indeed help, though not near as much as I had hoped. So long story short, couldn't afford major university, got stuck at a community college because I was a dumbass in high school.

Anyways, I am just going to cut it short here. I'll write more about certain aspects of my life later on, among other things.
