My life is a work in progress…

well that was a quite a “John Madden” post title you may say. But yes this picture spun in photoshop is only in its infancy (5 mins) but I’ll keep working on it! Along with this picture, restaurant, personal career and social life shall be worked on too! I assure you, or am I trying to convince myself. I digress here’s the pic-cha

Best of luck!

Well the alabama trip story probably won’t ever be revealed here because well i’m just too busy. I’ll do my best to give you snippets of my life. The most recent of which was the beautiful ceremony that I attended, Alison & Kevin’s wedding.  These dear friends of mine are basically the embodiment of the story book couple.  Good luck and I toast to you two.

More pictures to come.

Escape by diving right in

Today is the first day off for me in a long while.

These past few months, I’ve obsessed about crafting “exit strategies” to my time down here in dc. However in the brief moments that I have peace from my hectic work schedule and I begin to work toward my goals changing my career and life paths, I find myself hesitating, procrastinating and sometimes doing more restaurant work. Am I afraid of whats next? failing? or am I running away from my future by just diving into mindless work. Perhaps… but it bothers me that I don’t even look forward to my brief trips to my little hometown anymore. I am perplexed about what I actually will look forward to in the coming days.

Jebus I don’t know how to even probably take a day off…. sorry about all the pyscho-babble everyone.

I’ll leave you with some pictures as always.

The crosswalk I travel everyday.

Chinatown DC: Right before diving into the restaurant.

Just came into this Paramore video. Catchy & moody, just my liking 😛

I just want to go back to the start of it all….

I remember listening to the beliefs that those who long for the past are weak, but is it really wrong to want go back to a simpler time when you were at peace?

I miss this scene...

well its too late for that now… but I just have to vent and look to find peace somewhere else.

The week we will not mention…

So yes, I live in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area and well there have been a series of events which I, which at this point, will not continue to talk about… Ok at least, I’ll give you a hint. Its white, powdery  and has turned everyone crazy.  Ok, its not cocaine but you get the point…

Anyway it has kept me away from work and given me a brief 2 day unplanned vacation from work.  Great you say? relaxing? The sad pathetic thing is no it is not.  Being at home alone for half a day and not working, it has made me think about everything again and again, causing me to experience anxiety/depression/cabin fever all at once.

I just shutter when I think that I’d rather just be working.  I guess its just better to keep your head down and stay busy at work rather then think about your problems.

in the kitchen @ Momiji

but instead I am racking my brain and “cooking skills” to make instant ramen interesting for the 4th straight meal.

mmmm 5 minute dinners....

Sesame broth ramen with dried shrimp and poached egg. Oil-Free grilled cheese bits and MOST important my Passion Blossom Cocktail to make it all go down.

Engagement @ Momiji!

Okay Okay…. Slow down everyone. Don’t get too excited with the title. Its someone else that is getting engaged! One of my long time customers decided to surprise their significant others with a big fat old expensive ring, so of course I assisted in the affair like a good bartender.  Of course, I decided to moonlight as a special events photog. Let the amateur hour begin!

After an hour of waiting and a few humorous miscues. Everything went underway and went of course well!

Eli on one knee

Yayyyyy She said Yes!

Champagne & Diamonds

Momiji the place for EVERYTHING!

Congratulations Eli & Baker! Good Luck and Thanks for including this silly bartender in your special day.
