Great day? Maybe So.

Today was a great day. I got to hang out with the seniors at Alta Care. I work a senior out patient program from 7 to 1 and then at 2 I go to Monsanto to to work at the gym til 6. While hanging with the seniors, we talked about life for a while and how things had changed from when they grew up. We actually discussed job requirements and how they have changed as well as the length of requirement that many of them worked while they were employed.

Life right now is good. You have to be at the right place at the right time. So far, today, I am there. I trained Brandon today so he can take over my position. I think he will do exceptionally well, he is no me, but he is a good guy. I am sure people will like Brandon because he is so down to earth and he is a local. side note: Brandon is a class mate and a very genuine guy. I am sure he will make a someone really happy when he decides to settle down.

I think Brandon and Gerald are going to be forces to reckon with. 2 perverts…Well actually, I think Gerald is going to corrupt him. Oh well time will tell. I hope I am able to check in on them from time to time.

I got my GRE scores today and the results were not so good. I scored 1140 total and the percentage was in the lower 25th percentile. I can always take it again. I guess that is the beauty of tests in life. For the most part you can have do overs.

Kristen called me and I think she would be the best girlfriend in the world for me. She is so positive and makes me feel like I am loved and wanted. We decided that she is going to come out to Colorado when she graduates and we will build our log cabin and our dreams together. Man I hope that is true.

Until tomorrow...

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
