New post every Monday! Today = Adam Levine

OHHHHH Yeaahhhhh!! I quit my job!

It has been a really fast and weird year. My new years resolution to write more went nowhere, but like almost every year, I get shaken up more over my birthday than new years. I am almost thirty now (I turned 29 on May 16th). For that reason, I decided to quit the part-time job. It was an awesome job with great people where I didn’t have to do anything challenging. It was a job I should have been doing during college or after graduation, not at the age of almost thirty. I will miss the job, as well as the steady paycheck, but I am convinced that I can make my living writing and giving tours.

I am doing full-time freelance writing again. And to push myself into doing it more, every Monday I will be posting here in my own blog. My target is also to write more for the San Diego Reader and to get a cover before July. After a year and a half of writing for them, I am being included into the special issues (almost monthly). I have been published on the food section as well (Feast!) which opens the possibilities to more writing.

I also intent to have way more Tijuana Adventures. I have been having a couple of them every month and the popularity of my tours grows. I plan to have a tour every Saturday from 2-8 pm for $40 to four different breweries and two Baja-Med food stops. The tour includes a flight of beers on each brewery or a full pour. More details about that soon.

Exactly one year ago, I was freelance writing and organizing the Tijuana Rumble Fest, one of the toughest things I have done in my life. I am glad to say that this year, TRF will happen again (on a different date, obviously). However, I will no longer take a huge roll like I did last year, this time, I am spectating and helping with little things.

And a bit about my personal life…

I spent most of the year dating a gorgeous girl, but we were rarely together. I had the audacity to break-up with the prettiest girl I have ever dated. So I am single again….

My ex-girlfriend was in love with Adam Levine, so in her honor, here are my encounters with the singer/judge.

The first two are from March 15, 2009 from what I can tell from the file, because I do not remember that day at all. He arrived American Airlines and they snuck him through the elevator to the arrivals floor where a limousine was waiting.

This other set is from September 8th, 2009 and I remember how it happened. Adam had a departure (probably to JFK) at 3:00 pm, so I arrived at 1 pm to wait for him. As I approached American Airlines first class, I spotted a really cute looking girl sitting by where I usually sat (it was a perfect spot to see celebrities coming out of their limos). I sit nearby with my cameras hidden as I am awed by her beauty. I find the courage to say something… and she tells me she is a model and she is waiting for someone. I also tell her that I am waiting for someone, so we sat next to each other for a couple of minutes without exchanging any more words.

A limo approaches and Adam comes out. The girl next to me stands up excitedly and runs over to him. I thought she was a fan or something, but no, she hugs him and kisses on the lips. It was Adam’s girlfriend, Angela Bellotte….
