I don't even know what to say about this... not in a bad way.  I just think its crazy how much we look alike.

and until it was pointed out on multiple occasions that we are practically twins, that I realized thinking he was hot and wanting to date him was a little... well very weird.

A few things...

So in one of my classes I am actually forced to write in a blog, which makes this a little hard to do becasue the other one is about boring nonsense like public health policy lol.  I don't really know why I'm telling you, just saying.

So I'm back on twitter as well.  I deleted it initially due to too many naked women and creepers following me, but bad always comes with the good.  My friends have been beotching at me about it as well because it makes it a lot easier to stay in touch and communicate in-the-moment ridiculous thoughts that were at one time impossible to do so when two of them moved to New York.  I missed it too.

Other than that I have just been hanging out because we had BACK TO BACK FUCKING BLIZZARDS!  Let me just say this... I hate snow.  Now, I'll say this... I loathe three feet of snow.  Baltimore shut down.  It was the most snow baltimore has ever gotten in that short of a time period.  NO cars were on the road, people were walking around like it was December 2012 (yes, I believe it could happen).  It took me 4 hours to dig my car out, once the roads were barely drivable, and then cost me 50 dollars to keep it in a garage until the next snow storm passed.  Mind you I'm doing all this trekking in the snow in a pair of Diesel sneakers (my most snow-ready shoes that I own... I brought it up to my mom, she doesn't care lol).  Somehow I made it downtown every night of the week, and had my fill of alcohol.  I was in vacation mode hardcore.

On another note, my birthday is coming up in a month.  Not just any birthday, my 21st birthday!!!!!!! I am very excited.  Since my birthday falls on spring break.  I will be celebrating it 3 different times.  The first true birthday night with my gays here in baltimore.  Then, when I get home with all my home friends and then one more time in baltimore with all of my other friends that were home for spring break the first time I went out for it.  I'm just glad I won't be going to bars illegally anymore lol.  It will make my life and my friends lives much less stressful.

I'm gonna try and make a video soon, but who knows... talk to you guys laterrrrrrrrrr

p.s. my twitter name is johncoiaaa
p.p.s. yes with 3 a's, I've used the other variations of my name like johncoia and johndcoia while making and deleting accounts lol.

Listen up.

Hey guys, long time no talk...

For the past half a year I would say that I've been ducking in and out of the cyber world for whatever reason, always apologizing along the way.  I get messages telling me to make more videos or write in my blog, most of which I ignore.  I've just started to realize recently that I was way too worried with disappointing people I had never met.  That's just crazy.  There is not logical reason why I should be worried about whether or not someone whom I've never met and probably will never meet likes/dislikes me.

I'm taking a class on Positive Psychology, very educational.  I'm thinking about my life in a very different way.  One thing I'm doing is completely letting go of this ridiculous and unnecessary worries that I have. You would be astounded if I you heard some of the things that stress me out on a daily basis.  Unfortunately, this blog and youtube fall into this category.  I'm not saying that I'm not still gonna come write here.  I'm just saying I no longer feel any sense of obligation, which I still can't believe I had in the first place.  Both of these things should be things that I do when I want to.  I shouldn't force myself.

So that is what I came here to say.  I will still be coming to this blog to vent and inform but there won't be anymore apologies for extended absences.  The same goes for youtube.  No more apologies, no more worrying.  If the mood strikes me, I will act on it.  I don't know why it took a class to make me realize that unnecessary stress is a bad thing but whatever.

Either way, I'm happier.  I'm getting rid of all the superfluous things in my life, especially things that don't make me happy.  Lifting, for example, is another casualty of this change.  I hate lifting.  I love swimming, bikram yoga, and playing racquet sports.  That is plenty of working out.  I don't need to be overly muscular to be happy.

I'm currently reading a book called "Happier".  It has been the catalyst of most of these changes.  I'm not saying its a cure-all, it takes a lot of self evaluation.  It's a great start though.  Actually I'll give you a little test to see if you should/might want to read the book.  If you had an hour right now where you had nothing to do (no work, chores, errands, etc), what would you do to make yourself happy in that hour?

When my professor gave us the last hour of class to do this, it took me a half hour to think of one thing that I could do right then that would make me happy.  That's a scary thought.  All of the things that I do during the day were exactly the things I had listed above: chores, errands, work, schoolwork...  I don't care how busy you are, even just taking a minute to think about what makes you happy will be extremely beneficial.

I'm on my way to a happier life.  Oh yeah, one other thing.  This type of psychology is not for the mentally disturbed or distraught, its for the average joe.  Its meant to take a normal person and lift them up, make them even happier than they think they already are.  It's a great thing.

I'm not saying I am by any means and unhappy person, but why not be happier?
