Random funnies, things I find interesting or cool, and more funnies. If I don't make you laugh when you go through this blog I will feel disappointed. BUT there are some personal posts scattered throughout this mess of a blog.
19 years old, USC Trojan, Class of 2015 (maybe 16, I don't know yet). Music is my life, I play primarily guitar and drums, with emphasis on drumming. If I can make a living out of it one day I will without thinking twice.
Oh and photography is cool too. Check out my pictures!
JESUS FUCK SHIT
It’s been a while, sorry about that. I’m horrible at this. MAYBE ONE DAY I can actually do this on the daily.
Well lets see, where did we leave off… WEDNESDAY!
Ok! So, not much happened during the day. I was lucky enough to sleep in since I had no French that day, and just had my Psych course. I went through the works no problem. I did some studying and work the rest of the day until about 9ish when I had a friend from band (who is considering the fraternity), and two brothers over for drinking and merriment. They got me pretty fucked up (it was their plan cause those assholes love to see a drunk Matt, apparently I’m even funnier and more lovable drunk), and it was a fun as hell night. One brother even passed out on my couch, oh the irony of him calling me a lightweight.
Thursday, I was pretty fucking hung over for that day. I skipped my morning French course because what is functioning? lol eventually I had a gig to do with the band, which was badass, playing in the LA Convention center for some ski convention (which had easily a few hundred people watching us). After that I basically went home, showered, and got ready for a party over at the fucla Theta Chi’s house. Brothers and I pregamed at one bro’s apartment, then we all took cabs over to Westwood. It wasn’t too crowded when we got there, but eventually brothers from motha fuckin Long Beach came in two busloads of brothers and girls.
THEN THE PARTY STARTED.
The amount of alcohol I drank was ungodly, but it was great that night. I ended up hooking up with two, almost three, girls in that night. I’m surprised I remember it, but definitely remember those experiences. Dayum, is all I gotta say. Dem long beach and ucla girls can show you a good time. And get this, one of those girls: IS IN THE GODDAMN FUCLA MARCHING BAND. Did I commit some sort of taboo by doing that? lol I feel like I did. Either way she is the only girl who I actually got her number (I may have gotten another, as some random number messaged me earlier, but she didn’t say where I met her so I’ll let that one go) and we are talking a lot :D she’s pretty cool to be honest, so we’ll see what happens in the near future (She’s a local girl too! Venice! How awesome is that?)
And after the party ended me and all the brothers went and ate at some little Mexican stand a block or so away from the house. Food never tasted so good. It may have been the drunkeness or maybe I hadn’t ate in forever, but it was damn good. Drunk food be the best food.
Friday, again, hungover like all hell. I need to stop all this drinking, my liver is gonna die on me soon at this rate lol. But I woke up around noonish, ran home, relaxed, and had work till midnight. Nothing special.
And incredibly not special today, as I had work for almost 9 hours. Love them long work days.
And now I am here, home, about to watch some youtube before knocking out. Have a good night y’all!
PS. Apparently half the guys who went to the fucla party can’t remember jack and are all of a sudden asking me what happened since I remember most of the night. Bitch, I was busy getting lucky, I ain’t yo babysitter, I can’t keep tabs on everyone ahaha

Like Nobody Else - My Darkest Days
Wellll… It was nice sleeping in a tad before my French oral final exam! I got a good breakfast in me and crammed a tad. And I gotta say, I’m fairly happy with how I did in it! I kept the conversation flowing 90% of the time, and I feel like I used a good amount of advanced words and dialect. So yay! :D
After that, it was a boring day. I mean I had history soon after, and, NO BAND PRACTICE. IT FELT SO WEIRD NOT HAVING PRACTICE. MY BODY WAS NOT READY FOR ALL THAT FREE TIME.
Well, I made up for that with studying and getting dinner with a large number of bros (6 to be exact, a solid number for a spontaneous outing). Soon after I ended up going for a late night work out with a bro at the main university gym. I haven’t been in that gym in a year, so it felt weird being back there. I had been using the gym at my apartment (which is tiny and has like 6 machines), so going from that to a massive two story behemoth of a gym was kinda daunting. But, I had my bro to ease me back into it. Once I got comfortable again, we hit the ground running. I had myself a solid leg day and boooyyyy were the stairs to my apartment afterward a pain in the ass. But, its gonna feel gooooood tomorrow! ahaha
Oh and remember that girl who her and I parted ways from a possible couple? Well she has been getting weird with me, kinda awkward, and it kinda sucks. But what makes it even more awkward? Walking on campus with a “date” with my arm around her while the friend walked right past. And I didn’t even notice her until I got the text asking who that girl was.
Eh, what do I care? She had her shot with me and she blew it, so she might get even more weird now. Oh well, I mean it sucks, we were such good friends before, but all of a sudden it fell apart, cause she is being weird as hell and doesn’t know how to be mature. Eh. BUT! I did have a fun time with this other girl! But I don’t see it being long term at all, now don’t get me wrong, she’s a great girl and any guy would be lucky to have her, but we have a few fundamental differences that could keep this from being too serious (mainly, she’s Jewish and I’m Catholic. Typically doesn’t work out). But hey, nothing wrong with a little winter relationship/a few rolls in the hay, right? :D

WOOOOO ITS DECEMBER. CHRISMAS. HOLIDAY SEASON. Wait, holiday season… I work in retail… OH SHIT.
Well again, sorry for missing more days in this. I’m horrible. Ah, oh well. I try, that’s something, right? Well lets see… lets recap whats happened these past few days. *checks last time I wrote here*
Oh shit that night. ha. That was fun. Basically there was a lot of shenanigans in the trumpet section that night. I got zero sleep. None. Then we had band practice. Which was dreadful a couple hours in. But we finished up right when I started to feel like shit, so that was nice. I immediately went back to my apartment and fell asleep for a couple hours. After that I got back to campus and tailgated! Was fun, lots of girls and brothers there, was a great time. The game itself sucked ass (no matter what, fucla), but I gotta say, this season in band was unbelievable. I do not regret one thing I did regarding band over these last 4 months. Some parts were just grueling and a bitch to get through, but I’d do it all again if it meant experiencing everything I felt this season. Those moments when I would just become overcome with emotion playing, from playing in Dodger Stadium, performing my first 10 piece, marching through campus on gameday and have thousands gather and cheer and just support us, to playing for the sold out crowds of the Stanford and fucla games, my first tunnel run, marching in Notre Dame and seeing Touchdown Jesus, taking over cal’s stadium, playing Tusk a million times after the fucla game, being in front of the entire student body at Conquest, the list goes on. And just imagine, this was just MY FIRST SEMESTER IN THIS BAND. Who knows what else the future in this band holds for me as I hope to spend two more seasons with this band!? Ah I get excited thinking about it!
And after the game, I had a small kickback at my apartment with some band freshmen. It was really nice! We had some good drinks, lots of crappy food, and lots of stories and things to tell. Was a fun night, I can feel myself getting a lot closer to this certain group of fellow freshmen bandmates, and I love it! One guy may even rush my fraternity now, so this works out!
Sunday I knocked the fuck out for the entire day. Nothing to report there haha
Today, nothing tooooo special. I mean, I had class, which was no problem nor was it anything worth noting. I did have a date set up but she canceled unfortunately, BUT she did ask me out for the same time next week, so thats a positive, she is still into me! :D
And on the topic of women, remember those two girls I hooked up with who hated me? Not sure if I reported it then but one kinda told a brother that she didn’t TOTALLY hate me and may be down to work on this whole possible relationship with me. Well fast forward to this last weekend and I texted her asking if she could meet up to talk. Guess what, SHE RESPONDED. Saying she would like that and could do later this week, and to check back. Shit yes. I mean I passed by her today and she gave me a smile and a wave, so um, am I ok? haha That makes me happy though, she’s such an awesome girl, from her drop dead gorgeous looks to her outlook on life, to her future desires and mainly, HER TASTE IN MUSIC, I would be pretty damn lucky to have her by my side. Though the fact she is an out of state girl could make it interesting… eh we could tackle that later.
But now, I am here studying for my French oral final tomorrow. Kinda nervous. But at this point its just a matter of reviewing vocab and hoping for the best. But after that, I’m drinking the night away. I ain’t doing much this week! ahaha

So yeah I missed the Thanksgiving one. Eh, sorrynotsorry. I was all knocked out from a food coma. We all know what happened anyways. Family party, eat a shitton, have a few drinks, enjoy the night with family.
Today/tonight will be a different story.
So I had band practice today from 1-5pm. I stopped by early to see if I could pick up my tickets for the fucla game early but they said they didn’t have em, fair enough. So I asked if it was ok if someone got them in my stead, since I would be gone by the time they start handing out tickets because I would be at work; lady at the band office told me it was all good and asked for the name of who would pick them up. I gave the name of a friend who already agreed to pick them up. Was told all good, awesome.
So I end up leaving practice at 4pm cause I can’t be that late to work (I was scheduled to start at 4pm, but boss told me it was ok I come in late) and it was just hell at work. I mean, what else could I expect working in a Toys R Us on Black Friday? Insane amounts of people, inexperienced seasonal workers, and some just angry people in general. But whatever, I’ve dealt with it before and could do it again.
But the best has yet to come! I get a text from my friend who was gonna pick up my tickets saying she was not allowed to pick them up for a million stupid reasons, and tonight/yesterday was the only time they could be picked up. Soooo I got screwed out of tickets. Fucking fantastic. So I gotta go bitch at the band office tomorrow and see what happens.
Now for tonight, I just got back to my apartmend from work. I ended up working from 5-1am. Was insane cleaning up that mess. Now, I got some stupid band shit to do starting at 3am. Fuck me. Then? 6:30am practice for the game. Then? Gameday. What the hell is sleep anyways? haha I sure as hell ain’t getting any of it!
Well this is going to be a fun 24 hours.
Oh! And I’m hosting a party for all the band freshmen after the fucla game, so we gonna get turnt! Lets see if it ends with me getting lucky ;) Band girl #4? Lets see ahaha
Either way, Fight the fuck on, beat the (b)ruins, FEBU.

Welp, sorry you got no drunk posts last night. I was too drunk to even function actually. No, wait, not that drunk. Just drunk enough where I was just having a good time lol. It was an amazing night to be honest, one I really needed. It was me, two fraternity brothers and an older band member, and all 4 us guys took out a handle of captain morgan. Boy were we fucked up, but was awesome, blasting music all night long, playing GTA, and telling funny stories and just hanging around and being guys. It was a night to remember, somehow. hehe.
Anywho I woke up NOT HUNGOVER! So the day started off great, and I slept in till like 1, which never happens! Doubley awesome! And I made my return trip home no problem, and spent the day with my best friend/neighbor. I needed this day, it was awesome spending some time with him, considering I hardly see him anymore. We hung out, got food, and ended up seeing Thor later in the evening. Sounds like a brodate, shit, I’ll call it that! Not sure if he would call it that, eh oh well, no fucks are given :D
And now here I am writing this in my own bed, back home. Feels nice being back here. Time to get some sleep. And Happy Thanksgiving all my American followers!

That one is for you, Miles ;D
So I took forever to get up today, I was incredibly tired from my late night working. I barely made it on time to my French class but I made it!! Just in time for the presentation I was hardly prepared for! But luckily my partner came to save the day and did the majority of the talking. I owe her one big for this project. Maybe some chocolate or something? She deserves it for sure, I wanna show my appreciation for all she did.
Eitherway after that I had to make up the exam I missed cause I was ill. Luckily it wasn’t too hard. I left one answer a tad short (for French exams they are all just 3-4 short essays, no more multiple choice), but overall I feel good about the exam.
But because of that I was late to history, but no biggie. I got involved in class and whatnot. Managed to turn in my late paper too, though the professor claims I never sent him an email regarding my illness (which is such horseshit).
After that had practice, which is practice. Though the arrangement kinda sucks I am looking forward to this halftime show, we play SWEET CAROLINE! YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HAPPY IT MAKES ME THAT WE PLAY IT AND MY BABY SISTER WHO IS 12 AND NAMED CAROLINE WILL BE THERE!? All of the happiness exists in me because of that.
Now I sit in my room waiting for my roommate to show up and then we can go buy alcohol, then I will be hosting a couple brothers and we shall drink the night away! Maybe I’ll put up a drunk post… that could be interesting…

For a little bit I was confused by all the Whovians I follow who are/were going insane today.
Then I remembered that today was the Day of the Doctor showing over here.
What, one day into it and I already miss out on it? Ha, am I really that busy?
Well lets see…
Ah! That was quite the night for me. The day was kinda boring, as I just laid in bed all day recovering from my bronchitis. However, come practice time for band, thats when it all got busy and interesting.
I had practice, which was a BITCH of a time for me. Bronchitis and marching do not make for a good time at all, trust me. But I got through somehow, but now I worry if I can still march in halftime cause I might miss this Friday practice…OFF TOPIC. Eitherway, had practice then I ran home and showered and had another date. This one felt pretty cool cause I picked her up from her sorority house, instead of a damn dorm room, and felt cool talking to all these sorority girls who I presume were judging me as I waited for my date.
But the date went well, we had a good laugh the entire time and she was literally the first person ever in my life to say I have a good singing voice, saying it was unique. Quite interesting if I do say so myself, as I have previously thought (and even told T~T) I am not a good singer, which I was really fine with, but a shocker and nice to hear that. But we never scheduled a second until until literally like two hours ago when I texted her saying it sucked I couldn’t find her at a university event, and she responded by asking me out. Damn. Me gusta!
After that, I went to a pledge activity. It was Hell Week for the pledges and the event was a fraternity favorite to watch, and I watched that for a good amount of time before I went to…
That shit was insane. But fun. We played for all the sororities on the Row, which was pretty damn fun. Then the guys have to go and kiss the girls!? Shit, I’ll take that form of hazing any day thank you very much. But I didn’t sleep until 4amish so I was dead tired, that and I may have lost a good friend because she has been a bitch to me recently, but so be it. Friends come and go in life, and I can’t dwell on it.
Nothing much. Practice, then sleep.
Was late to practice, so guess who got publicly embarressed? Well, I did! But I made up for it since I stole something from the bones and managed to get it the trumpets before they recovered it, I was a hero! :D
Then was fraternity initiation, which was fun as always. Followed by food and football game viewing party at the president’s house, which was a blast.
Lazy day, outside of fraternity elections.
I unfortunately, did not get anything. Sucks, but oh well. Gotta look on the bright side of things! Now I have a lot more free time on my hands, and can focus on grades a little more!
I returned to classes for the first time since last Monday, and it felt weird. Damn bronchitis. But was a regular day of classes, nothing too special to say or talk about.
However today was Conquest, our yearly rally for the game against fucla this Saturday. The band performed and I somehow ended up in the front of the lines, and I loved it! All eyes on me, in the spotlight, performing for everyone and everyone having a good time, that made all the time in band and crazyness worth it, right there. Being a superstar for 30 minutes made band camp, the hell I went through being a freshman, and the time commitment in general all worth while, really. I love this band and love my decision to join it.
After we performed I met up with some brothers and we enjoyed the concert from Jason Derulo, which was pretty sick.
And now I am here, just finished a history paper, and now I will study French for a bit then go to bed. I have an exam and a presentation tomorrow. It shall be busy, BUT, it is my last day before Thanksgiving break! Woo!!! Relaxation time awaits me! And by that, I mean a handle of Captain Morgan rum! I haven’t drank in weeks due to me just taking a break and then from taking anti-biotics, so I need a good stiff drink….or two…or five.
Until then, night y’all!
