Lunch with Dave and Noah

So today I met with the usual cast of characters at Starbucks. We discussed the usual, love, life, love and the lack there of. When you really boil it down, there are lots of things you can discuss, like politics, the weather, your health, but it seems to come down to love and life. If you aren’t rich in both, it makes for a dull one or the other. I seem to think that a rich life is one that is littered with numerous friends and fantastic friendships and in those friendships becomes the objects of your affection, the object of your love.

I left at 10 and came to my home office and did some work regarding our business website and also looked into pricing out ziplock bags for our product to ship them with. I priced a few companies but realized i had requested the wrong sizes. The price seems right so we will look at increasing the bag size. I also responded to a few emails that I had been slacking on. I decided there was no better time than right now to get them out so i did. Sometimes we sit on things thinking they aren’t big things, but really in the grand scheme of things, they are all big. Not big enough to stress about, just big enough to be concerned with.

I left for lunch at 12:45 and met the boys at their work and we were off for lunch. Dave suggested “Flippin Pizza” just off of melrose south in vista/carlsbad. They have a cool deal, 2 slices of pizza and a drink for six bucks including tax. When you aren’t the wealthiest man in babylon, you have to choose your meals wisely. This was perfect and the food wasn’t too much or not enough, it was just right. It has a great ambiance and comfortable seats. The guys working there were super friendly and had our order out in a jiffy.

After we scarfed our grindage, Dave, Noah and I proceeded to talk about Life, Love and politics (and the environment too). Seems we all agree that life is short, we should do what we can to preserve our resources and look for new energy sources as well and that family is a good thing. I realized sitting there, talking with these two guys, that life is a ride that we must learn to enjoy and that the friendships we have, no matter how long our visits are, how frequent we see each other, and the quality of the discussions we maintain, we have to cherish the moments. Even though the hour flew by quickly, it was so great to hang out with these guys. They are truly my friends, and I am blessed and honored to have them in my life.

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

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 …
