Kieran 2.0 Final Post!!!

Well it's been just over a year since I started this blog and then forgot about it. Here's a bit of an update.

1. Since starting this blog last year, I have dropped 60 lbs, going from 278 lbs to 220 lbs. While I'm not at my target, I'm still very proud to say that I have accomplished part of my goal in a healthy way. I started going to the gym and I really started just trying to live differently. I'm very happy with how I am now but I'm not stopping. I'm not going to stop until I'm completely satisfied which is very close.

2. I'm back in school and I'm  doing well.

I'm not quite Kieran 2.0 but I'm close like a 1.9.1 I would say. I think the progress I have made this year is only the beginning and I have a lot more to improve on.

This will be my last post on THIS blog, I'm creating another blog as well as some other things for a project that will be happening in the very near future which I'm pouring all of my time into now. I've been sleeping 4 hour nights and haven't worked this hard on something since Portfolio, so hopefully you'll all enjoy it. That's all I'm going to say about it for now but be on the lookout.

This isn't a goodbye message, I've just outgrown this blog and started a better one.

This actually won't be the final final post, but it's the last real post. The last one will come soon and it will be a link to the new blog. Keep a lookout!!!

Before and After

Not quite Kieran 2.0 but lets say 1.1.8 or something. either way I look a lot different than I did back in January. So far I have lost 50 lbs and that's only since February because that's when I actually started my "exercise," which was mainly me turning on P90X and burning out just after the warm up.

To sum it up so far, in Feb of 2011 I was 279 and change, I was a doughnut away from 280, now I am 230, the lightest I've been in about 3 years. I'm hitting the gym every day and I'm eating good stuff instead of ordering Steak Master every night. I've still got ways to go because I still have a gut but I think my goal of getting a super-hero costume for Halloween is definitely in reach.

I will win, I won't stop until I caaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaan.

First Final from Mah New School

This is the final project that I had to turn in for my Typography class. And let me tell you I actually learned something as opposed to Ms. C's class back at AI. I had to make a motion graphics animation and I'm prety happy with it being my first real stab at kinetic typography. Hope you all enjoy!

Beneficial Bank is a bunch of Smelly Douche Drinkers!!!

So Beneficial Bank, a bank that I have trusted for several years now won't give me my money and it's pissing me off royally. I deposited a check on monday that was A CeRTIFIeD CHeCK from a UNIVeRSITY and they won't clear it. I'm on vacation and am almost out of money and have to sit out for the fun shit everyone is going on. 

I didn't even get the 100 dollars they said would be cleared next business day. The check was from my University so it should have gone through. 

Not only that but I'm the one that is doing all the work!!!

Beneficial Bank is doing NOTHING to help. I called them, I called the branch and they want me to call the school. They are doing nothing to help at all. 

The second my money clears, it's being taken out of that bank and put in a different bank. I'm sick of not being able to have my own money and having to jump through bureaucratic all day to get what's rightfully mine.

Beneficial Bank. SMOKe YOU!!!!!

Kieran 2.0 and such

Okay, again I have not been blogging. I was waiting for the right time to blog however because there have been a lot of changes in what's going on with me. First off a couple weeks ago I found out that my kiosk was going to be closing down. We would all be put down to 1 or 2 shifts every week and I couldn't afford it. I pay so much in transportation that going in every day would pretty much cost me money to work.

My manager has decided to lay me off after next Saturday. This helps because I can get unemployment, but I'll also be unemployed...duh. But still it's pretty big. Also, this Summer, I will be attending the Academy of Art!!! This is awesome because I won't have to pay my loans for a while and I can focus on my work. I'm not going 3-D like I thought originally though, I'm heading for web. I decided to take Gullo's advice of learning web since that's what she always told us. I'm hoping this will help me find an actually good job.

I gotta jump in the shower for work right now, but I'll talk more later. By all.

Blog of the mornin' to you.

Well I wanted to blog this now while my feelings and thoughts are still fresh. I'm just waking up for work right now in yet another week where I question myself every morning as to how I messed up so bad that I'm such an undesirable worker. I'm trying not to be to negative but I can't help it anymore. I feel like I'm trapped in a shitty dream. I wake up almost everyday fighting the urge to cry at how unhappy I am with the way things are going. I'm not going to do anything crazy, I just feel so unfulfilled. I went to school for 4 years for what seems like nothing. I'm working a job I could have had way before I went to the art institute and I have nowhere else to go to. I need the money and I can't afford to lose the job that's causing me to hate myself.

every day I wake up to go to that fucking mall is a day that I failed yet again. I have so much work to do and not nearly enough time to do it and it's my fault. I wonder if I'll ever get to leave my job or if it'll just fall down around me leaving me unemployed. I'm sorry I just needed to vent. I need a new job because this one isn't even close to cutting it. My last paycheck was so little that it isn't even enough to cover my private loan bill. I'm fucked and this job is draining me. I'm there so much but I'm barely working there. My commute adds an extra 4 hours to my day since it's almost 2 hours each way. I feel like I'm constantly traveling or at that kiosk. I need help, I don't know what to do anymore and I've lost faith in myself. I'm not confident anymore, in my work or in myself. I just want to be happy with myself, I want to pay bills without everyones help. I mean what the fuck did I go to college for?

I'm sorry about this negative early blog but I needed to get somethings off my chest. It's 7:55 and I'm behind schedule. Later everyone.
