The Hoildays Are Upon Us

So.....OMG the holidays are here!!!!!!!!! I just screamed like a girl.
Once Halloween has passed, all hell will break loose and not stop until New Year's Day. I love this time of year, because there are parties to go to, new outfits to buy, and of course gifts to receive. If you don't know all the holiday that I'm talking is the list. This will be the only time that I name them, so please remember for future reference.

OBVI it's one of my fav holidays, because you get to act a fool and be out in public. Best part is that you can wear a mask and no one will know who you are. See pic below.....

This Halloween got a little out of control with me taking it there....and being Buffalo Bill. GET IT!!!!! I also snuck a peek at NYC biggest Halloween party, The Greenwich Village Halloween parade. Good times over all. But now on to bigger and better things.

2. Birthday Extravaganza.
If you have never been invited then you need to get yourself to a plastic surgeon quick...Because only the pretty are invited to this Birthday BlowOut. It all started when I met this bitch...
Brought herself into my life. Come to find out that her B-day is a day before mine. Hence why we are eternal sisters. DER!

So every years since we have known each other we have spent our b-days in a drunken haze of debauchery and havoc. The celebrations last for what seems like a month and a half but really only last either a week or at least three days...all depending on when our birthdays fall. So this year we will once again celebrate the birth of two of the most AMAZING bitches to ever hit the street in a pair of KILLER FMP'S. All I can tell you is to be aware if you are around and not invited...because somehow you will get swallowed and join in the festivities.

So....from this point all other holiday are normal and still needed. OBVI, b/c you get time off. There is Christmas Eve, Christmas, and of course the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Which btw, I have never really done anything crazy on New Year's Eve. Granted, I've had some great NYE's, but nothing even close to handcuffs, dark rooms, and people I don't know. LOL!!!!! Oh well, we'll see what happens this year.

Again a word to the wise. The days between Nov. 10th-13th, STAY OFF THE STREET!!!!!!!!!

I know, I know, I know...did you hear...

What is up,

So yes....I know that my absence has caused many of you heartache and distress, but no worries, I'm back now. I took sometime away from this thing to clear my head. There have been a lot of new chapters in the Book of Nick, most that I can't write about, because you would only believe them if you were present. Anywho.........The jest of the matter is that I'm going to start blogging more. So again I say, NO Worries.

When's the last time you enjoyed yourself

So.....I just came back from seeing Superman Returns and was thinking on the way home about stuff I should write about. I know, I lead a very exciting life. LOL!!!!

Superman was really good. I'm a huge fan of comic books, so it's nice to see the stuff that I grew up on come to life on the big screen. As I'm watching the movie, I get to thinking about how this movie in particular makes one forget about the daily in's and out's of life. Instead, you get lost in the movie, thinking about how this was done and what would it be like if that really could happen. You find yourself enjoying life.........
So many times we get caught up in what we have to do next, what has yet to be done or even what wasn't done. Sometimes it's just nice to enjoy yourself.

While leaving the movie several people committed on how the movie was "just ok"......"it wasn't anything spectacular." Some even commented that the movie could have been better. But, as these people were dissing this well made film, I got to thinking about a time when people would have been awe struck at what was displayed in this movie. We have all seen movies like it....Jurassic Park, Batman, Willow, Star Wars....just to name a few, movies that made us forget. What happened to those times......when did we become a society that needed to see reality played out in front of us. What happened to just enjoying yourself at the theatre??? How have we become so far removed from a society that once was in awe of "Technicolor"?

I won't attempt to answer these questions; instead I will let you ponder. I have my own thoughts, but for now, I'll just sit back and enjoy.

What's the happs??

So here is an update on the life of Nick.

The job is going well. I realized today that I really loved my job at the University. It really was a great fit for me. It allowed me to be myself with no regrets. I could talk as much as I wanted, and as little as I wanted. It allowed me to see the country and above all, drive to different parts that I probably never would have gotten the chance to had I been in another job. Most of all, it allowed me to have an impact on someone's life, which at the end of the day is all I want to do with my life.

*Warning soapbox about to be stepped on*

So many of us live day-to-day just trying to get by. I realized this early in my life, especially after 2 different jobs. I met so many people along the way that had been in the same job 3 or 5 years. Waiting for something to happen. When I woke up that day and quit my job, I decided that I would no longer wait for things to happen to me, that instead that I would have to make them happen.
So here I sit again, with a new job. I'm only a month into, and yet somehow it feels like I'm waiting for something to happen. I leave work filling like I could have done more, like I should have done more. I should've had a direct impact. Perhaps, it will happen. But, I've also decided that I can no longer wait. Because once you have touched the "rainbow" the last thing you want to do is stare at it out of a window.

*Soapbox off*

Don't get me wrong, I'm not out for a new job and I don't hate my current one. If anything I'm writing this as a testament to where I am and where I want to be. I know that me leaving my job in DC was not without thought. I know in my heart it was done for a bigger reason, one that I probably won't ever know the answer to. So, I'll wait to tell you what the happs??

So what happened

So Pride has come and gone. And well, it was another Pride in the books. What can I say.
Friday got Spletty at a place called Mr. Blacks, where the bar backs walk around with no pants or underwear on. For those of you who haven't been to said bar, it's like a bar in someone's basement. Actually, more like a den. I have been a couple of times and each time I get very drunk and remember the next day how much I disliked the music. The drinks are always good, but the music could use some help.
Saturday found me extremely hung over and lying in bed falling asleep twice. I only got up in the middle to go meet a friend for coffee. After coffee, I decided that I needed a restart, waking back up three hours later and heading to another bar. This time around I decided that it wouldn't be a good idea to spend the next day in bed, so I decided to have one beer and call it an early night.
Sunday started bright and early. A friend was having a parade watching party that started at 10am. Needless to say, this lady likes her sleep, so I didn't get over there until 11ish. All I have to say is that drinking from 11 until 6 is never a good idea. If anything you find yourself at another party at 7pm and hating life. LOL!!!!!!

So, no big parties this year. No dancing with my girls and burning holes in someone's dance floor. And, no rush thru airports to catch an ealier flight. If anything, this years Pride was the tamest of the bunch. Perhaps, it was for the best. Maybe as I get older Pride becomes something that I celebrate year around or maybe even in those random moments when it just feels great to be Proud of where you are in life.

It's that time of year that the smell of Pride????

So, another pride year is upon us. This will be the first time that I don't spend Pride in San Fran. Granted it doesn't really work out to go out to the West Coast this year, with the new job and all, but it would have been great. Instead, I will spend this year's Pride in a new city. Headed to Fire Island on friday and Saturday and then coming back to the city for the parade on sunday. Should be a good time. I hope.
I have to say that ever since I've come out....Pride is the one thing that I look forward to every year. Growing up in MO, I would always see Pride events on the news and hope one day that I would end up on a float in a cowboy hat.......I can't believe I just wrote that, but it's true. Side note.....have you ever seen that one movie where the guy's parents end up seeing him on Tv in a gay pride parade.....having mental bloc right now. It's either "the Full Monty" or "The Sum of Us".....with Russell Crowe. If you haven't seen "The Sum of Us" really should. Love Russell......anywho

The thing about Pride itself is the experience of it all. From the parade, to the clubs, to the concerts, to the events at the end of the parade. It is all worth it. My first Pride event was in Columbus, OH. I have to tell you that I didn't know that many gay people lived in the Midwest. Thousands of people. I will spare you the details, but I will tell you that I remember a random bartender, a cheerleader from OSU, and dikes on bikes.

The next two Prides would find me in DC and San Fran. Both so different, but both so fun. Lot's of boys, lots of dancing, lots of late nights early mornings. So that brings us to this year..... I don't know what Pride has in store for me this year. But whatever it is, I'm looking forward to the memories.

Wherever you go....There you are

So....I apologize for not writing. I'm sure that many of you have decided to leave this blog behind. I had to take a pause from writing b/c of the whole moving to another city thing. For those that don't know. I moved to NYC a little over a month ago. I have to tell you that I miss DC so much. Most of all, my friends. I don't regret moving, I know that what I did was for the best. I'm in a relationship that is working out....and have a good job. Being in NYC isn't bad at all if anything, it's very cool.
So from here on out, I will try to write about the musings of a city that I never thought that I would find myself in. From, the million and one restaurants, to the fabulous club scene that I probably won't ever be apart of.....LOL!!!!!!! So sit back and enjoy the wild ride that I'm sure is about to ensue.

So... I know that I haven't written in awhile. Things have been crazy around here...and by here I mean my mind. Now that things have settled down a bit, I can now talk. So, today is my last day officially of living in Washington, DC. It's my last day at work the last day that I will walk home from work and, the last day that I will call 1st and W, NW my home. I'm moving. For those who don't know I'm off to NYC, to start a new job and some new adventures.

In the end it's all kind of bittersweet. I've loved every last minute that I've spent here; my job, DC, and of course my friends. No worries, this is not a good-bye post (that one will come tomorrow). But, I know in my heart that the move that I'm about to take is one that has been in the works for sometime. A famous person once said, "There is no testimony without a test." And so with that, I'm ready to be tested again as I move on in my book of life.

It's been my goal to get back into fashion every since I left my first job out of college. I now have that opportunity and can't wait. In the end, I guess life really is like a book. There will always be new chapters. So with that, I start a new chapter in the BOOK OF NICK. Thanks to all those that have read, stopped reading but still checked back once in awhile, and even those that came along on this crazy adventure with me. I will miss this place, but know that there are many more adventures ahead.

Peace, Love, and Hair Grease to all the fans

Get on it.....NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

So....I can't believe that I have not blogged about my favorite show of the year.......FLAVOR OF LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!! If you bitches have not seen this is by far the hottest thing to hit TV since My Super Sweet Sixteen ( I live for marathon’s of that show...). It's just as funny and Lard' the people on the show are A.M.A.Z.I.NG to watch. The first season just ended, and you best believe that VH1 was not dumb and def. scooped up a second season of this great show, which starts filming in May.

If you have never seen the show or for some un-Godly reason never heard of it; first, get you ass in front of a tv and be prepared to die from laughter, 2) be prepared for this to suck you in, cause once you see one episode you will want to keep watching.
The basic premise of the show is that Flavor-Flav is in search of a true love. The show starts with 25 women and each week women are booted off until there is only one left....which is suppose to be Flavs true love....too bad, because the woman he chose dumped him real quick....she was just in it for the sake of making a name for herself, which I don't blame her.....granted, I would never stick my tongue in Flavor-Flav's mouth (I just threw up in my mouth, sorry)

Please check this clip will explain why you must watch...

and if you need another reason......

Now that I have added another bit of wisdom to your life......go and watch, you can thank me later
