2009 Unravels

It's only been 22 days into the new year and usually i would think nothing interesting would really happen this early in the year.

I had a pretty phenomenal year last year, 2008 was the start of a lot of big things for me so naturally i would think that last year would've been a really hard year to top in terms of success and all of that. I had just recently gotten the amazing job of being a DJ at RX 93.1 since I won Radio Idol season 4. That in itself i think is a pretty big achievement already. July of 2007, I was jobless and thinking of ways on how to pay rent for the place which i was staying in. One day my best-friend talked to me asking for a ride to RX to audition for radio idol and he said "Why don't you bring a resume and audition with me?" and the rest is history. So here i was starting out 2008 as a Jock for RX thinking to myself "this isn't bad at all". Hosting gigs came with the territory making it easier for me to provide for myself since I was living independently. Couple of months later one of the former RX jocks asked me to audition for a TV show on ETC. My self-confidence wasn't really in the best shape since well I wasn't in the best shape but against my judgment I did audition. Weeks had passed and I thought to myself "I'm never gonna get that job". Yet again I was surprised to find out that they did get me, despite my being a little chubby they opted to get me and my supposed competitor. It ended up to be one of the coolest things that I ever got to do, I love my 2 co-hosts, the producers and everyone else there. Well basically I just loved the jobs that i had.

Now for me this is a pretty big achievement, from moving out of my house jobless to ending up with 2 pretty hard to get to jobs in just less than a year. I had started seeing a side of me which I never really saw before. Responsibility started popping out in my vocabulary and I began to hate procrastinating, being idle and well just being a bum. Now the year was about to come to an end then I started to realize that this would be a REALLY hard year to top which saddened me a little bit mostly because I wanted to constantly progress and I had feared that I had climaxed too early or something to that effect. I was extremely thankful for the year 2008 but I had been dreading 2009 since I thought that it'd only bring disappointment or stagnation.

2009 is starting to unravel in front of my eyes, and from the looks of it, this is going to be a pretty amazing year. Of course I expect bumps to come up every now and then, but with the news I heard today and if everything pushes through it's going to be a GREAT year and I'm pretty much way in over my head again. Although so far I've been able to deal with that and I'm extremely ecstatic about the direction that I'm going to. I can't disclose any details yet, but if I could use one word to describe it, it would be...



  1. Nice post. Kind of how I feel. Like the road ahead is clear, you just gotta ride!!!

  2. Anonymous1: Stagnation only starts when you think theres no way up/down. but if what you have inside you is faith that there are more things instored for you then i guess you wouldn't feel that way, There is always room-ful of improvement in our lives, we learn everyday we grow in every way. Think of it this way, 2008 has just been a jumpstart and a year or realization, this year 09 could be a start of planning, getting into shape, and doing things that you have never done before.

    Opening oneself up would trigger a domino effect in your life, every decision you make will knock down a block of domino and so on and so forth but if you try to know if of the other way and hold back it will stop. You just have to think about it and reflect on it, then you can do what you want with it.

    I believe that this is a start of new things, and trust me Talent can go farther than looks or any physical traits, so you dont have to think about those things too much, the society can be cruel at times but you just have to believe on what you have.
