One week until Europe!

I'm off to Europe next week! I leave Wednesday, arrive in Brussels on Thursday morning. From there, I'm undecided whether to catch a train up to Amsterdam for the day or just kick it in Brussels until Friday when my friend Jaime shows up. I'll probably go to Amsterdam, just to check it out. Brussels does have the Tintin museum, which I am DEFINITELY going to, but I think I'd regret not checking out Amsterdam. Besides, I'll be back in Brussels on Friday, so I can get my Tintin fix then.

Torn whether to stay in the party hostel in Amsterdam or slightly better behaved one? I'm only there for a night so I'm highly tempted to wild out.

I meet up with my friend, the infamous Jamie Ball on Friday and head off to Brugge for some crazy rave. The lineup seems pretty fucking insane to me but my European friends seem unimpressed. They're spoiled. I get an all access pass courtesy of Jamie because he's playing.

From there, Jamie and I fly to Xàbia in coastal Spain. Doesn't look like there is much there but it'll be relaxing to spend a day or two eating paella and swimming in the Mediterranean, after the whirlwind first few days. It looks beautiful.

I'm scheduled to head to Madrid that Tuesday via high speed rail from Valencia. I'm really excited about that because I've always wanted to ride a high speed rail. I want it to be like a roller coaster but it probably won't live up to my expectations. Still, 230 miles in 1.5 hours is nothing to sneeze at. I just hope it's scenic.

In Madrid, I meet up with my former roommate Adam, who I haven't seen for almost a year. Lucky bastard, living in Europe, working for the Spanish version of Netflix. I've heard a lot about Madrid and I'm sure it'll live up to everything.

That Saturday, I head to Berlin to meet up with my boy Ed DuranDuranDuran. I'm tired of typing so I'll have to fill you in on Part 2 later.

I'm seriously considering moving back to the city. The thing is that I'll have much less room. But I think that could be a good thing. Comfort breeds complacency. I've got a great room and a great setup now. But it's just stuff. I'm still stuck in Oakland, living in the same room I shared with Liz.

Speaking of Liz, I saw her last week at a party at my house. It put me in a weird mood considering my recent troubles but I'm glad our meeting was chill. She did what she had to do. I just wish I hadn't spent so much time with her before she came to that decision.

Another reason, moving out of Oakland could be a good move. Literally moving on.

Problem is that it'd be moving back to nearly the same situation I was in 5 years ago.

Whatever. There's never going to be the perfect situation.

Channeled some sadness for a creative purpose. Finished a Mixtape and did some flier art for a party I'm throwing in February.

I'm heartbroken.

I managed to drive away someone who I cared deeply about. I suppose it's my fault for getting my hopes up but it still really hurts. I considered this person one of my closest friends, only to have her dump me a few days before Christmas because she realized she wasn't in love with me and hated my personality. She resented spending time with me.

Ouch.

It doesn't make sense but I guess that's what I get for dating a 23-year-old. All my friends warned me before I got into the relationship but I didn't listen. I don't know, I guess it's hard for me to accept because I can't believe the things she is saying. If she hated my personality so much, then why did he hang out with me so often? We had good times together, i can't believe it was all torture.

I talked to a few friends and they tried to assure me that it's something she is going through and it doesn't have anything to do with me, but I don't know if I accept that. It has to be some sort of reflection on myself.

I feel like I'm right back to square one after my relationship with Liz ended. They both ended it saying I was a negative person. I'm really hurt by that. Maybe I can't see that aspect of my personality but believe it or not, I think of myself as an optimist. I want to improve my lot in life. I try to improve my artistic skills.

Breakups are the worst. I was feeling so good about myself and now I'm living in a world filled with self doubt. I cared for this woman deeply but she resented me. It hurts.

I think my problem is that I've been looking for happiness in romantic relationships instead of myself. I need to move on. I need to work on myself.

Should I try to stay friends with her? I really did get a long with her and she still says she wants to be friends. Whatever that means. I don't know. I'm tired of forcing people out of my life because I used to have sex with them. I've already lost my best friend and I feel like I'm going to lose another one. It's really sad.

I guess George Michael was right.

Been getting into foreign movies again lately. One of the girls I'm seeing is into them too. I went on a date on Sunday to see Grotesque: Unrated Version. It's basically an ultraviolent Japanese gore porn movie/fake snuff film. Fucked up but the girl I saw it with was super turned on by it. What a freak!

The Japanese are funny. Also have been watching anime lately: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Fooly Cooly. Never was a big anime nerd but I really like those shows!

On the other end of the Japanese spectrum, I've been watching a lot of Pride FC, Dream and Sengoku events. What can I say? I enjoy watching fighting. The Japanese do it right though and add theatrics and make it significantly less "brah-y" than the UFC. I just watched Jose Canseco get beat up by Hong Man Choi! How could you not like that?

Also been into Brazilian movies as of late. Watched Tropa De Elite last night which was fucking awesome. I highly recommend it. Going to watch O Homem Que Copiava next. Heard really good things about that.
