So I went to Universal Studios on Wednesday. It was the first time in almost 10 years for me but it was cool. The only thing I wanted to do was to check out the new Springfield. It was really cool from the pictures I saw. In fact, I was so excited I started snapping pictures of everything.

But there was one problem. Due to some issues, half of the place was not open. Krusty Buger: CLOSED. Cletus’ Chicken Restaurant: CLOSED. Moe’s: CLOSED. Lard Lad Donuts: CLOSED.
You kidding me? The main part of the attraction was closed? This was totally unfair and I could not believe that they would do that. I feel bad for those people who were visiting for only one day. I am lucky I have a pass I can use my pass later this year. I even got some sweet compensation for this incident (free parking on next visit and free front of line passes). But still, Springfield was basically useless except for the ride and the Kwik-E-Mart. What a shame!!!!
Still, I had as much fun as I possibly could. So there’s that. I will be back next week hopefully. They should have everything fixed by then.
You know what’s tough? I’ve been trying to write this story since February but I have been coming up empty. I think the problem is that I have the idea of what I want to write about but the character I’ve created doesn’t excite me. In fact, the character is not that compelling. I want to make the character be so heartbreaking yet so relateable. I don’t have that.
And the longer I wait, the harder it is to convince myself that I have a good story. I may need to change the direction. I might need to change the background. I might need to start over.
In the meantime, I still want to keep one aspect of this character and somehow infuse this inspiration into it. Listen and love it.

A story of my journey as a Warriors fan. Great read.
But at the end of the day...
Been a Warriors fan through these three eras.
A trip down memory lane for me as a Warriors fan.
I remember I was in first grade and I saw the Warriors on TV. I didn’t know much about basketball, I just liked it. I would try to imitate what I saw on TV to the playground. I even remember the first ever basket I made on the playground I thought that I could one day match what the Warriors did. It was so easy to be impressed by this Warriors team. Little did I know that they were embarking on a playoff drought. But they were the first team I watched. The first team I followed. I fell in love with basketball because of them. And I never left.
It’s not easy being a Warriors fan. As I grew older, my frustrations would grow more and more with the team…

Why does this day exist? Why do people who have a brother or sister deem it necessary to have a day dedicated to that fact? What about those who don’t have siblings? Do they have an official day? Of course not.
This day is a myth. It doesn’t exist. It’s a figment of the imagination. It’s for the insecurities of those who have siblings and can’t handle the real world like only-children like myself.
What a weird day for odd folks. They’ll make a holiday out of anything that has no significance.
See that post? I was one of the five to post a comment. I just wrote “Me plz” in the comment. I knew that me being quick was the key to the whole thing so I didn’t even bother spelling correctly. I was contacted and now I await my prize!

Not gonna be in Oakland for the first time in a long while. I attended the last five opening day games. But it’s a first for me to be away. It sucks but I will be cheering from work. I’ll be wearing my A’s gear at work too. Go A’s!!
