time for my friendship spiel

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost."
- Charles Caleb Colton


I have two friends whom i love dearly. One of them is my room mate and the other is a friend from the south. They are both fantastic amazing guys, with one minor flaw. They don’t live in the now, They live in the future. They both say they are not going to date until they have the Adonis body that is not real. They would rather miss out on great opportunities in life for some future date that may not ever come.

I really think that one has to love themselves now or the tomorrow that they hope for will never get here. Some people think they are too fat, too bald, too old, too slow. I say let it go... There is never a better time than right now to get out there and feel great about yourself exactly as you are. Just because you don’t look like everyone else in the magazines, or on tv, doesn’t mean you are not worthy. If there is one thing i can’t stand, it is the media and how it glamorizes looking rail thin, what ever happened to originality. Last time i checked we were individuals.

This is how the term is defined

1. Of or relating to an individual, especially a single human: individual consciousness.
2. By or for one person: individual work; an individual portion.

# Existing as a distinct entity; separate: individual drops of rain.
Serving to identify or set apart:

stop living for tomorrow and get out and feel great about today. If you don’t, you may live to regret it. Your mind is the only thing you can set free. your mind holds all the keys for unlocking ALL the doors in your life. Break the mold and love you for you right now...Stop saying your too fat, too old, too tired, too slow. BE!

I leave you with this:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

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
