A fantastic book...

Okay so I just got done reading, “Everyone worth knowing”.  It is a fantastic book about a twenty something girl working at a major financial institution.  She is not thrilled to be there and puts in many countless hours and feels like she is getting nowhere.  She gets in trouble at work one day for taking a break too long and decides to quit.

 

She enjoys the days off looking for work, eating red hots and playing with her dog.  Her uncle Will convinces her to go to a PR firm and apply for a job.  From here she starts a whirlwind year of partying, playing with celebs, getting caught up in gossip, and finding herself.  I don’t want to give away too much from the book.  It is an easy read.  I picked it up on Thursday and finished the last 100 pages last night at about 7pm. 

 

The book will and is a reminder of a harlequin romance novel and okay as a straight man, I have to admit, I am hooked.  I could read this style of book forever and never seem to get bored.  The story comes together nicely and many of you as I did will “get it” soon into the book.  I bought my copy at borders.  I highly recommend it.

 

As usual, have a great day and remember to focus on what you want and eliminate what you don’t want in your life.  Keep smiling and learn to find inner happiness.

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"

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 …

Movie Review: The Family Fang- 4.5 out of 5 stars

Narrator:  Imagine your dead. Feel yourself go numb. Start with your fingers, move to your hands, your wrists, right on up to your elbows. Everything is dead. If we can imagine our own death, but still manage to come back to life, then it proves we can survive, anything.

Baxter Fang: Don't be afraid. Own the moment. If you're in control then the chaos will happen around you and not to you.

This was one of the best and possibly overlooked movies of 2015 (which is why I am just now reviewing it in 2016) in my humbled opinion.  Jason Bateman is not only an incredible actor, but an extremely talented director.  I was never a fan of arrested development (probably because I never watched it).  However, after seeing Bad Words and now The Family Fang, I have a whole new respect for Jason Bateman
