#sorryasianparents EP11 – Bukowski Quotes, Alcohol, and Identity

Leave a comment

Hi hi,

This is a recording I did with Capt Ahab, so the audio is a different pitch, and my rip-off graduation photo covers his image. I know it’s annoying but bear with me; it’s a good conversation. And I just learned from Google sensei that it’s bear and not bare since bare means to reveal, and to bear with someone means patience because of actual bears…..fun fact, I guess.

I mentioned this episode in ep #SAP EP09 us two and Salutationsgoodvibrations. Here we talk about identity, self-confidence, college parties, finding yourself, my love for anime and video games, and we even get to see a video of me in high school give my class a light show. We also talked a lot about “New Girl”. Like my other videos, I promise you that this will all make sense….kinda….just trust me.

If you have any stories about finding yourself or wanna share what this Bukowski quote means to you, leave a comment down below. AND!!! (I guess I’m going to have to start saying this even though it makes me cringe) if you like the video, please give me a thumbs up and a sub.

“That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.” – Charles Bukowski

Graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in English: Creative Writing. So far, this degree has helped me become a decent bartender and a professional online troll. Currently living in SoCal and trying to chase my dream of becoming a comedian since I quit both of my jobs right before the Rona hit. Great timing on my part. Sigh, story of my life.
