A true Friend...

So today is moving day for me. I woke up early as usual on such a day, i guess because of nerves and excitement.  I decided to move back up to North County and semi abandon city life.  It was a pretty quick decision, however, i put the request out to the universe that i wanted to move back to North County and the universe answered...quickly.  The place i found has great ammenities, is located in Carlsbad, and is less than what i currently pay for my location downtown.  It is only about 2 years old and has washer and dryer in the unit.

I found the place two weeks earlier, drove up and looked at it last week, put the deposit down on it and is moving day.  Upon waking up, i noticed that it was raining, which bummed me out just a little bit, but worse things in life have happened.  I thought of my friend Noah, who would be coming down in a few hours to help me load up the remainder of the truck.

I asked Noah to be at the apartment at 8:30 so we could get a jumpstart on things.  I appreciate Noah because, well lets just say getting noah up before noon on the weekends is a tough thing to ask of someone, especially when they enjoy their sleeping in days, and to top it off, it was raining.

I got a text message at about 7:30 saying that he was up and would be at my place at 8:30.  I thought to myself, that is true friendship.  You can't find friends that are more loyal than that.

We finished the move and got everything into the new place despite the rain.  We both felt like it was a pretty painless move.  We were both starving at about 1:30 and decided to get some food.  Noah suggested and old favorite that i had forgotten about, Wahoo's fish taco.  Wow, what a great choice.  Fantastic food at a great price.

i finished the moving process late that night.  I had to go back to the old place and clean.  I wrapped up at about 6:30 so it was a long day for me.  All in all a very rewarding day and I am happy I made the choice.  The girls seem to love the new place, the roommate seems sweet and loves cats.  Most importantly, I feel i am closer to my dream.  To my best friend Noah, if you are reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You are truly an amazing friend and I am very blessed and lucky to have you in my life.  Friendship like yours is hard to find, and a true gift when it is.

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 …
