Woke up early today, no clue why.  Work was good.  Today was cloudy and cold.  Mike (at Altacare) and I cut up all day long.  Bill Spring was cool as always.  He is so laid back and funny.  I am getting nervous about the move.  I am looking forward to it.  Johnny called me and asked me to go to lunch at Norma's in Dillards.  I wasn't able to go because I had to hang with the adults on this day.

After work at Monsanto, I came home and got ready for the outing of the evening.  Johnny and I went to seville.  The crowd was outrageous.  The chicks looked really good on this particular night.  I am slowly learning to like being single.  Membership has its privileges.  I worked out with this girl Jenny S.  who has a fantastic body.  She was good friends with my ex girlfriend Gina D.  While at Seville, I saw her friend Jennifer.  We chatted for a bit and she was a cutie as well.  She seems like she could be interested in me.  While I was talking to her, Stephanie (an ex) came up and hugged me.  She told me her and Tom were getting married in June.  She showed me the ring and I was happy for her (the totally deserve each other).  I asked Stephanie out right in front of Tom at Parisian, one night when he was getting ready to ask her out.  Since she was on the spot she said yes to me.  I could tell Tom was disturbed...  I digress.

Its amazing how dynamic life is.  Johnny, was talking to Ginger, who used to work at the Court Cafe.  She is such a cool chick and gave me a ton of encouragement in my move.  I also ran into John Popovich.  He said he was going to come to my going away party.  I finished the evening talking to Marissa (another ex) at Denny's.  Life is really never the same...constantly changing.

Until next time...

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 …
