Its been over 22 days since I've updated my blog. I apologize to my loyal blog readers for the lack of updates, but I've really had my hands full. Here are a few key highlights from the past few weeks that I'm sure many of you might have already heard about in other blogs:
-I'm official a certified business owner. I am the proud new CEO of Victory Nightlife Co. I aspire to take Victory Entertainment's prestigious 9 year history to the next level with Victory Nightlife. Be on the look out for what's to come... '07-'08.
-I'm starting my MBA program with an emphasis in Global Management at the University of Phoenix this upcoming Thursday. I'm kinda nervous b/c U of P is catered to the working adult therefore many of the students will be older with more real world experience. Although, I might lack full time work experience, I believe the skills that I've learned by running a business (planning, marketing, negotiating, human relations, etc) and my personal skills will give me a good balance.
Its weird b/c I only have class on Thursday from 6:00 - 10:00PM. But I they've already warned me that I'll have enough work to keep me busy throughout the week. Yikes... Lots of reading... You know my reading skills aren't really on par. Also, I think I might be the youngest person in the MBA program, but hopefully I can use that to my advantage.
-We celebrated Althea's 24th birthday @ Heat... Lets just say we all know she had a great time... Throwing up... Everywhere! Happy 24th Birthday Myster!
-Purple Haze 2 won its first basketball game in dramatic fashion with a game winning 3 pointer by OJ with 6 seconds left against our rivals The Fam aka Team Elegado.
-George & Rhoda's birthday celebration @ Crudo. Fun! I spent $180 on dinner and alcohol. Not fun!
-Excelsior in La Jolla, our bi weekly Saturday venue, shut down b/c they didn't renew their cabaret license... Too bad someone forgot to mention it to me the night we planned on having UCSD's Grad Nite! Worse ever!!!
-Meet with Dave Gonzales from Hot Import Nights (Myron's partner/boss for 21XL Events Company) @ their Irvine office. Dave Gonazles is the Yoda of event coordinating... It was a wonderful eye opening experience to see how much work is put into HIN, which tours in 20+ cities nationwide bringing 20,000+ people to each event. Now thats a massive event... But don't worry we've got a few things coming up that I'm really excited about!
I'm also going to be working with Dave and Myron as the San Diego representative for "The World of Dance" coming in November... More info coming soon!
-KJ's birthday @ Harney's in Old Town. I'm usually pretty pick about my food but all the sushi I tried there was delicious. Highly recommended spot! Happy Birthday KJ!
-Vince came home from Japan for a few days... Just like that he's already back in Osaka, Japan. I was refreshing to have him home... Got lots of good laughs too! Have fun and be safe bro! I hope I can visit you soon!
-I want the iPhone! Last week I decided I was gonna hold off on the iPhone b/c it $600 but the more I watch the iPhone videos on apple's site the more I want it! So... Fuck it! I am gonna get one but there already people waiting in line in NYC for the iPhone, which releases at 6PM on Friday.
-Althea and I are planning to take a trip to Hawaii in July. Just the two of us... We rarely do anything with just the two of us, so I thought it would be a great way for the both of us to just get away and enjoy each others company. I'm really excited b/c I've never been to Hawaii... Althea went once when she was only 17 years old. I'm looking forward to going scuba diving for the first time! Any recommendations on places or activities we should do/visit while we're in Hawaii?
THANKS for checking back! I know that was a lot of info but check back b/c I'll be uploading pics to my flickr soon! Have a lovely day!
