Someone I Adore..

By the way, my friend Leif pointed out to me that Day 1 was supposed to be a SELF portrait. As in a photo I took of myself, by myself. You know what? I was at work when I wrote that entry. Didn't have my camera on me so I kept trying with my camera phone. The photo quality was shit (especially in poor florescent lighting) so I just went with photos he had taken of me. He told me that I get a D- for day 1 of photoblog challenge, hahaa!

October Photoblog Challenge, Day 2.

Someone I adore, and 5 reasons why... Well well well..  There are many people I adore. Truth be told, I had a hard time picking just one person. If you didn't already know you're about to know: I'm going on a trip to Europe soon. Someone inspired me to finally get myself out there.. This person I've known since high school (which was nearly a decade ago). He is someone who was so so so so so so shy when he first met me way back then, but now has a personality larger than life!

meet my friend/homie/one of my travel inspirations:

David Lee
(don't knock the 2nd photo, it's my favorite photo of him.)

He is one handsome and talented mofo. Last year he won himself a spot at the Cannes Film Festival. He went to Cannes, donned a suit, walked a red carpet and everything.. Then he decided to backpack his way throughout Europe. I stay online late at night (pretty frequently) and while he was waking up in Europe i'd be in bed here in America. We'd chat and he would tell me about his travels. I always wanted to go to Europe. I always told myself i'd go. You know what? I'm finally fucking going.
David thanks me for always believing in him, his talents, supporting his dreams, and being there since day one.. Well you know what?
Thank YOU David, for giving me that travel bug. You've always been a homie of mine and will forever be. While i'm in Europe, i'll remember all those conversations we had while you were there.. I'll remember how I felt wishing I was there, seeing everything you saw..

David - We've got many days ahead of us to go get spaghetti but let's make it happen! Thank you for all the laughs and the travel inspiration. You've always been an interesting person in my life..

thank you. thank you. thank you.
