bought a new camera

So i have been reviewing and re reviewing, pricing and re-pricing and finally decided to make the plunge. I have had my eye on the d40 by Nikon for a while now. 50% of the people say go canon and 50% swear by nikon. Both are fantastic cameras, to canon's credit, flesh tones are better with their processor. Nikon has better colors and landscapes. I like the d40 because of its ease of use. Fast set up and easy downloads. I can download all my photos into picasa in just a few minutes, and have them uploaded to picasa web a few minutes after that.

I have installed picture project and it is a tie between picasa and picture project. They both have great features. Picasa has the "I'm feeling lucky" feature for 1st timers and beginners who aren't avid photo takers. Takes the risk out of ruining a picture. Nikon's picture project is almost as simple to use and works very well also. Try both out and see which one you like the best. I fool with both so i can see which one suits my needs the best.

So when you first get the camera, you want to do all this point clicking and shooting. Many times in the absence of having a subject. Forgive me because my cats, random signs and flowers were the subject of my shootings

So after that was done and i had taken about a hundred "dump"shots as i like to call them, i sort through the ones i like and discard after that. I didn't get too many i liked, but i am not complaining, i mean after all it is the first time and first day of owning the camera.

After that, Noah, my best friend in the whole world, came over and we drove to san marcos to go see Rambo, but not before having an amazing dinner at Bruno's. Very good stuff. The movie was a little more violent than i am accustomed too, but it was still good. Lots of action, tons of blood and much revenge.

I think what is important to mention here is that i was able to tell Noah about my trip to Jamaican and the Bahamas. I had some stuff on my chest that i needed to get rid of and, Noah being such a great friend just listened and shared as well. He informed me that his situation was coming to an end as well. He wasn't sad, but i could tell he was bummed. It hurts sometimes finding out that the situation you thought it was, isn't the same situation that the other party thought it was. Excuse my vagueness, but i don't want to give away details.

I was happy to be there for noah and very glad that he lent an ear to me. It helped me to process and understand a little bit better. I sometimes think that we all have great friends that really help us understand through their trials as well. Without family and friends where would we be?

I am love, i am greatness, i am kindness and compassion, I am healthy and loving and i love everyone. Have a great nite.

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 …
