Movie Review: The Holiday

4 out of 5 stars

Went and saw this with some friends last night. Needless to say, I think Daniel and I thought for sure we were getting into a chick flick. Well we were. It was great. Great cast although, JB was trying to be his usual self and couldn't. In all there was great chemistry in the movie. Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, JB and Kate Winslet. I don't say this often...maybe i do. I am not a huge fan of Cameron, but she was really good in this movie. She actually played a convincing part. Jude Law...well lets say, i know why fatima was attracted to him. Hes hot. He is also a great actor and I really liked his part in this movie.

Kate Winslet did an exceptional job of being the lover from afar. She had a long lasting love for a gentleman named Jasper who ended up getting engaged and still wanting to see Kate winslet. For those of you who don't know, the premise is that Cameron diaz has just broken up with her boyfriend of 4 years and decides to take a vacation, Kate is in London and finds out that the man she loves has just gotten engaged to someone other than herself. Cameron decides to go on vacation and ends up staying in Kate Winslet's house in London and Kate comes to LA to live in Cameron's lavish home.

From here the laughter starts and chemistry between characters begins to take shape. You actually fall in love with everyone in the movie. The movie will make you laugh, it will make you think, and it for sure will make you a bit sad. This is the "Love Actually" of the year. I loved this movie and would highly reccommend it. No matter if you have ever been in a relationship, long or short term, you will be able to relate to this movie. Go out and see it. Great date movie.

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 …
