Have you ever gone into a restaurant and asked your server “What is the burgers served with?” If so, you should probably ask yourself this question “What the fuck was I thinking when I asked this question?” Seriously! When have you gone into any restaurant and got a burger that came with anything except for french fries? Burgers and fries are an item and they always go together no matter what! What else did you think that burger came with? Maybe Kiwi, Black Beans, A Snickers Bar, Ice Cream, A Ribeye Steak, or maybe even a trip to Disney World? By the way, this really did happen and the lady looked super confused as she asked me that amazing question! I thought it was incredible and felt the need to share it with everyone so thanks for reading!

Serving Tables Making Movies
Being a Filmmaker is something that I have wanted to do since I was 13 years old! I went to college, got my degree, and graduated. Now, I know you don’t have to go to college and get a degree to be a Filmmaker, but I wanted to go for the college experience and to learn as much as I possibly could. I’m glad I did because it was a major sense of accomplishment for me! I graduated in December of 2006 on the Presidents & Deans List with a 4.0 GPA! Four years later, I’m still working as a server in a restaurant! I realize that the film industry is a tough one and I’m living through it, but I don’t want to serve tables anymore! I mean, like every job it does have its pros and cons but I’m just tired of it! This month makes it 6 years that I’ve been serving tables at the same place. Now don’t get me wrong I do make good money and have a great schedule but I’m just tired of it. I’m tired of people leaving horrible tips (ehhh hum 10%ers), treating me like I’m some uneducated loser servant, tired of babysitting kids for them to stiff me on the bill, tired of running around like crazy all night, just tired of it all. I can’t do this anymore. I need a change! I do not want to go on working in a restaurant anymore, I want out! With that being said, it’s 2011! I need to make some big changes this year! I got 3 short films, 1 documentary, and possibly a few music videos lined up so far, so things aren’t looking too bad. I’m also buying a DSLR camera so I can start doing photography as well. The only thing is, I need more consistent projects or a full-time job with a production company to get out of the restaurant. I need to figure out how to make a living off of being a videographer. I need to get more projects going this year and I need to build up my IMDb credits to the roof! I would love nothing more then to wake up in the morning knowing that I’m going to a set to shoot a movie or a video and that I’m doing something I love. Instead currently if I don’t have a shoot, I’m waking up dreading the fact that I have to go serve idiots all night long, biting my tongue trying not to say the things I would love to say to some people! Don’t worry, I’m not depressed, just venting here! Anyways, 2011 is my year and I’m going to do all I can this year to make a change in my career! Filming is my passion and it’s what I should be doing, not serving tables! Speilberg, I’m ready to step in!
So it’s 12:30am and my friends and I are driving down Miramar Parkway. We get to the corner of Miramar Parkway and University Drive and we stop at the red light. All of the sudden we see this Miramar Police car drive right through the red light with no lights on. We’re like “Ahhh what the fuck, cops always do that!” But then the cop stopped right in front of ihop. Next thing we know one more cop does the same thing and they both get out of the car with their guns drawn. Then out of no where 8 more cops show up! So naturally curiosity caught up with me and we decided to make a u-turn to check it out. That’s when we started filming it. We saw one guy on the ground and all of the cops had their guns drawn. So later on in the night we went back to that ihop for breakfast! Right away we asked the guy that worked there what had happened and he told us everything! Apparently this guy came into ihop with his gun drawn and told them to call the police! I thought this was incredibly weird, why would you walk into a place to rob it and tell them to call the cops? I mean, I’m not a robber or anything here but I don’t think you’re supposed to do that lol! Some people are just dumb! Anyways, somehow the cook and a customer got outside while the robber was still inside. The cops ran inside and got the guy, obviously!
So here’s my message to all of these criminals out there that think they can go commit crimes and not get away with it …. You’re stupid!!!! Cops these days are on their A-game! If you rob a store, you’re gonna get caught! If you murder someone, you’re gonna get caught! If it doesn’t happen when you do it, it will happen eventually! So stop committing crimes and just enjoy your life!
