So as of lately: both the summer and the internship are done, and now school and the season has started. The past month and a half has basically been a blur. I’ve been constantly busy with everything starting back up. Training 2 and sometimes 3 times a day really tires you out. On top of everything, our Internet in our apartment has been down for the past 4 weeks and it finally has been fixed today. Have only had Internet on my phone but didn’t feel like typing a long post on there.

To pick up where I left off, New York City is fuckin legit. I absolutely loved it there and want to go back already. The 3 and a half days I spent there were all way sick. Got to walk around the city during the day as well as at night. Spend some quality time with different friends and also had a lil fun with a guy haha That city really is in a class of its own. Theres something about it that I have fell in love with. I don’t know, you can just do your own thing and get lost in the city without having to worry about others. Its so diverse and different that no one cares what you do as long as your not in their way while they are walking lol It was way sick seeing gay couples openly holding hands/kissing in public. I haven’t seen that type of stuff in many places. One of the nights, my gay friend and me went to a gay area and that felt awesome to just be so relaxed about everything and not worry about being judged or whatever. After school, I have to find a way to find a job up there that will support me to live in the city cause that place is mad expensive.

The internship is over and kind of glad it is. Overall it was a decent learning experience but just wish I had an internship in a different city. Staying in Raleigh wasn’t ideal and I really hope I get a different internship this coming summer. The main thing I took from this past summer was that I now know I don’t want to work in Trust Support Services haha Working the back and doing daily operational stuff really isn’t my cup of tea. I want to be working directly with clients helping them face to face. I know out of school, I’ll have to put in my time and do bullshit work but I hope to be a Trust Officer which could lead to making some serious bank.

School is back up and running and im not to fond of it so far. The semester is gonna be pretty difficult. All my classes are for my major and im taking 2 grad classes as well. Im in this program where I get my undergrad/masters in 5 years so it combines my 4th and 5th year together. One plus of my classes this year is that I have a hot teacher! This guy is about late 20’s and graduated from my school. He played baseball here and now works at a bank but teaches this Tuesday night Investments class. Its chill and its 3 hours every Tuesday but him teaching it makes its bearable haha

Soccer is going well and we’ve played 3 games so far and haven’t lost one. Played a team that was in the top 20 and tied them which was solid. I haven’t scored yet but I can feel it coming pretty soon.

That’s about it, wanted to write a quick update on whats been going on as of the past month. Take it easy


  1. Damn homie, sounds like you're going to be crazy busy this semester! Good luck with your classes and soccer. Do you get gay vibes from the Investments professor? lol

  2. Oh boy, lusting after the prof is such a good way to make it trough boring classes lol.

    Your NYC trip seemed awesome. Want to go there too one day. But what about your gay friend? Was he a friend of yours before you knew he's gay, or did you get to know him as 'a gay guy'? Does he has a bf? No attraction between you both? Haha just asking. Good luck being a senior man!

  3. Glad you are doing well. Good luck with school and soccer!

  4. Hey bud, NYC is insane man and it's great you had a solid first time there! Good to hear from you though and that everything is goin pretty well. Let's hear more about this dude in NYC haha

  5. Socrkid: Thanks for update. At least you got to see real work in your internship, some places make you just a gopher. I agree you should be out working with people because you are a people person.

  6. I've been a fan of your blog for a while and enjoy it a lot. What particularly struck me in this post is that the career you are heading for is what I did for many years with one of the best in the business. I am a much older bimm but, if you can deal with that, I would love to connect. If you have any interest, I am sure you are smart enough to figure out how to contact me. In any event, best of luck with school, soccer and life. And please keep blogging.

  7. Good to hear you are doing well.

  8. I had to fire my intern. Even though I signed off on it so he could get his degree. The guy was very nice and very like-able but he was a spoiled brat. He took more days off for the sniffles (hangovers) than anyone I knew. I come into the office at 11:00 to 11:30 each day (after owning the business for 35 years). He decided he liked coming in late too but my staff put a stop to it. Very disheartening experience although I know many other young men do very well..

  9. AGD- yeah its gonna be an intense one but thanks! and unfortunately he's married so there goes my hopes haha

    Kevin- he was a friend i knew but it was the first time to meet up. he is also a college soccer player so thats how i knew him. it was fun but we are just so far away so just friends. kind of a one time thing (wish it could be more though)


    Soundtrack- i might post more in detail about it, undecided yet haha

    FoC- yeah, compared to my fellow students who had internships, i feel like i got the most hands-on work which is a plus.

    olderbutnosmarter- thanks for reading and pretty cool that you did the career im trying to do. wouldnt mind talking more about it butttt i dont think im smart enough to figure it out haha i cant find a way to contact you through your profile.

    Davey- thanks man!

    Drew- yeah i dont understand how someone would waste an oppurtunity like that. i did wake up late twice but my damn phone alarm literally didnt go off. its been happening a couple of times now at school but i bought a clock from walmart over the summer after the second miss-hap so i wouldnt be late again haha

  10. Maybe I am not smart enough either because I don't see an email link on the blog. Anyhow, try olderbutnosmarter at gmail.

  11. Don't mean to be a pest, but I would be very interested in your thoughts as a Division 1 athlete on the Jamie Kuntz situation at ND College of Science. Do you think the punishment fit the crime? If he had only been suspended, do you think that realistically he could have gone back to the team and been effective? Do you think another Division 1 coach will pick him up (assuming he is healthy and has the ability) and, finally, would you, if you were a Div. 1 coach, give him another chance?
