Dentist Appointment and Memories

Well I woke up early today to get to my dentist appointment. Wouldn't you darn early that I was 3 days early. My appointment wasn't until friday. So needless to say I took the coaster up to encinitas for a day at leisure. I spent some time on the phone with my friend Fatima, while at Starbucks. Which by the way is the same starbucks I proposed to her in. Before I went to Starbucks, I actually rode my bike to Red Robin (now closed). The memories flooded back. I remember getting hired there on 9/12. The day after 9/11...a day we will all never forget, much like the day JFK was shot for the older generation. I remember going through training. I remember meeting new people and improving my memory skills and being able to take orders for a table of 12 with memory.

I remember meeting fatima after work and heading to the house in Shadytree for conversations or sleepovers. I remember working the day shift with small tips and saving every tip for our 2002 trip to Europe. It is amazing how everything changes...nothing stays the same. Now I am on my own again. Red Robin is closed and I am starting my new life.

When I left starbucks, i headed over to SDCCU, my bank, and deposited the funds that have to get me through the month. From there I headed back to the coaster station where I met some amazing people from North County and a couple from Ft. Collins Colorado. They were newbies to the coaster so I had to walk them through the whole ticket buying process, to storing their bikes on the train, and finally when to get ready to get off the train. They were planning a ride around mission bay so they departed the train in Olde Town.

I came home and sent out emails and called new potential clients. Things are slow right now, but I feel the universe changing and I am going to get very busy, very soon.

Chelsea, a very good friend, created a cool logo for TruBlue.

I attended my MADD meeting last night and learned that there is no excuse for ingorance. I can't believe i was the vice president of SADD and managed to get a DUI. Where is the sense in that? There is none...sheer ignorance. Now I don't drink anymore. I just don't see a point to it. It is a depressant and it makes you angry and want to sleep. I don't want to be depressed and angry and sleep is easy for me without alcohol.

Anyhow, life is moving at a continuous pace and sometimes i seem to sit still

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 …
