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"

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
