Do You Know Who You Look Like?

Okay, so here is the deal, these three guys are the three guys i get compared to all the time. It's like 10 minutes after someone meets me, they say "oh my you know who you look like?". I always play dumb and say, "No, who?"

I am told i look like doug savant in 90210 and not desperate housewives. I guess that is good, he was younger in that show. I was on a plane back from Panama and people in first class were asking me for my autograph. I thought to myself, if i really was that guy, would i be back here in coach or up there with you guys. Right after that happened the people next to me woke up from their nap and said, your that guy from desperate housewives aren't you. I had to burst their bubble.

I guess it is cool that i look like them, but does it every occur that maybe those guys look like me. Why is it because they are on TV that I have to look like them. Oh well guess that is how much TV influences our culture. I wish i was on the big screen or on TV but that is not the path i chose.

I guess worse things have happened in the world. At least people don't come up and say, "You know, you look just like hitler" or "you look just like charles manson". I don't think i can relate to any of the people that i look like. I am just me, an easy going, fun loving, friend making, jet setting, kind of person.

So if you see me on the street and you say, "You know who you look like," I am going to reply, "i have no idea". Leaves some mystery and at least a conversation will be started. Hey its a start.

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 …
