2014

So, I've been trying to get my head wrapped around my life. 2013 was a weird year. I'm hoping 2014 is gonna be a better one. Been trying to think of ways to bring back the "Andy" that I miss. looking at a few things that I'm trying to hold myself to this year.
1. Blog more
2. Draw more
3. Lose weight (wanna get to 160#)
4. Read at least 5 books
5. Start a project (24 hours art event, magazine, some local event)

yes, this is a short post, but it is an attempt to start blogging more.

Kinda makes you think....

Years ago I dated this girl, it was short lived for whatever reason. Not sure why, just the way it was. We met at Houlihan's in Monroeville one night, she actually went to PTI, about a year after me. We kind of lost touch for a few months, then one night we ran into each other at Dee's in South Side. We hang out for a bit that night and exchanged numbers. A few weeks later, I was at home. My parents had left at like 4am for vacation. Around 10am I got a phone call, caller id said: "Alleg Count Morg". Not thinking anything by it, I answered the phone.
"Hello?"
"Hello, this is the Allegheny County Morgue, may I please speak to Andy?"
My stomach sank,"this is him".
"Last evening, there was a car accident involving a black 1998......"my legs gave out and I dropped to the ground, because my parent drove a black 1998/1999 Jeep cherokee. I asked them to repeat the car.
"a black 1998 grand am."
My mind raced, who's car is this, why are they calling me??
They continued,"the driver Candace Hathaway was killed in the accident, and you were the first name in her cell phone."
A few days later I had a voicemail from a friend of hers, asking me to call back, cause she wanted to give me info about the viewing and funeral.

I never called back.

Here I am, about 10 years later. Hating myself for not making that call. I've tried looking up her obituary to see where she is buried so I can visit her grave when I'm home at Christmas, but I can't find anything.

Not sure why 10years later it is bothering me still. Just kind of makes you think, what other phone calls should I have returned.

I'm sorry Candy.

Lately....

It was a busy July an it looks like August is going to be the same. The fact that I'm not unpacked in my new place doesn't help that fact either. The past few days I have been in Minneapolis for work and will be going back in a week for a week. Then a little bit over a week later my parents will be visiting. So I only have 2 weeks to get my house to look like. normal residence. Minneapolis has been fun for the short time I was there, I look forward to getting to spend a little more time there next week. The Breeders are playing so I'm hoping that I will get to catch their show while I'm there.
Also excited to find out that the Silversun Pickups are playing Georges in September. That will be super cool cause of the the size of the venue.
I haven't had a chance to get back to Pittsburgh since Christmas.
So hopefully I can get back there before christmas but I'm not sure. I really want to take a few days and go to Athens. It's been awhile, it's so peaceful there....


Well, we will see.......
