You've probably noticed I haven't been keeping up with this blog very much. I've been a little busier than usual lately (this may or may not be a good thing, I'm hoping for the former). You might find a little more action on my website www.jamesbernal.com

Go there!

Sufjan Stevens - Cashmir Pulaski Day

This particular entry, is a little different from my other ones. Mostly because today is actually February 2, 2009. It's groundhog day and Shakira's birthday. I set this blogger to post this on February 2, 2010. I really have no idea where I will be on that/this date, who I'll still talk to, if I even update this blog, or have a job, or even still like Sufjan Stevens. Things might be going well for me, or not. It's like a mini time capsule for me.

At around this time tomorrow, I should be on a Paris-bound flight with my mom. It'll be the first time for both of us. I realized about an hour ago, that it will be the first time in our lives, that the two of us will share an airplane. I'm 22 now.

This is my mom. And these are a bunch of other people's kids.

Another first, I just bought a plane ticket to Managua, Nicaragua without running it by my parents.

Alexa in her underground fallout shelter. Just kidding, she's 10, so I'm pretty sure she has no idea what Mutually Assured Destruction even means.

silver jews - wild kindness

In an effort to make myself sound/feel more legit, I've finally put together a website: www.jamesbernal.com

Updating it will be [one of] my New Year's Resolution[s].

deerhunter - vox celeste

This picture reminds me of how great that backpack has been and how many buses, airplanes, and boat rides we've shared over the years. Looking through it a few weeks ago, I was hoping to find a lock. Instead, I found seashells, a subway map, and an email scrawled onto the back of a napkin.

pixies - gigantic

A year ago, we were playing Beer Toss and The Pixies came on. The guy next to me turned to his friend and mentioned how much he hated that band. In hindsight, what an idiot.
