Random [Pt. 1]

Hi Tumblr,

It’s been a really long time since I’ve been able to sit down and just collect my thoughts. So please prepare yourself for an extremely long mind-dump post that’s coming up. Forgive any grammatical errors that surface and please feel free to keep scrolling through your dashboard if you’ve got “no time for dat.” With that said, here we go.

22 was an extremely constructive and uncomfortable year. A lot the events that occurred were definitely uncalled for and put me through quite a thrill ride when it came to my emotions. Yes, my mom had always told me that “As you get older, you only experience greater difficulties and bigger changes.” I guess I just had no idea it would come at 22. But as much I’d like to bash on the year, like I said, it was constructive.

After I graduated in May of 2013, I was stuck. I wasn’t able to pick myself up, and could only dwell on the fact that it seemed like every single one of my friends had their lives set. They knew what careers they wanted and had picked up their  bags and left Berkeley. Yet, here I was, stuck at Pasta Bene, as a waiter, making minimum wage, cleaning tables at 11 am and setting up silverware before customers came in.

As time passed, I let this depression consume me, and it affected my health and mind. I lost weight, I refused to leave my apartment (outside of going to work), and I honestly didn’t want to associate with anyone. To be completely honest, I thought I was going to be lost forever

But after a few months, with the help of my determined friends and countless, therapeutical visits from my older sister, I finally gathered the courage to interview for other jobs. And with some luck, I magically landed a job at Humble Bundle, the gaming company I’ve been working at for the past year.

Simultaneously, I had decided to take a part in the Asian American entertainment competition, Kollaboration. From here, my band was not only awarded first place in our SF division, but also the grand prize of $20,000 later in the national division as well. Things were definitely looking up, and it was these events that were able to occasionally place a small smirk on my face.

However, after the competition had passed, I was still incredibly lost. I had no idea what I was doing. My life now consisted of working, eating, and sleeping. Sick of the routine, I decided to take a chance and reached out to a producer that I had met during my Kollaboration experience.

It was after reaching out to him (not to mention pouring out an incredibly heartfelt letter via email), that he was able to set me up with a demo session in his studio. I felt so rejuvenated. At the end of the session and with a quick pep talk, he had honestly made me feel like I was worth something again. Not because of my looks or my personality, but for a natural talent that I had failed to really recognize. He called it “a gift.”

I now knew what I wanted to be: a singer (and a songwriter)

Sadly, it wasn’t a fluid process or smooth sailing after that. For I’ve definitely fallen in and out of the drive to work on my “gift.” But thankfully, I have recently again found the passion to write and play music again. This time, with a little help of my beloved friends (who recently chipped in to purchase a keyboard and a new professional recording mic) I’m more determined than ever. Nothing will stop me.

Lastly, with this year, as usual, I let my passion for love distract me. I continued to soul-search. I went on plenty of dates, and tried to learn how to love each individual that I crossed paths with. However, at the end of it all, I only learned that soul-searching will get you no where.

Call me a romantic, but I’m going to choose to let love happen naturally. I know I’ll find someone for me someday. And when I do, it’ll be just what I had imagined. Not perfect, I’m sure, but as close to perfect as I’ve always imagined it to be.

So Tumblr, this isn’t as thorough or as elegant as I wanted my post to be. And I honestly was so enthusiastic about writing this post in the beginning that my thoughts slipped as I was writing. Not to mention, my friends sent me some Ariana Grande and Pikachu videos that distracted me as well. Hehe. But I hope what you’ve read today gives you a little more insight into my life. 

Thanks for letting me share this with you. I love you.

Love, 
Patrick
