historic day in history????

Okay so the big news is this.  Guy Ritchie and Madonna split.  Neither of them were at the courthouse in order to plea their case, because there was no case.  Guy did not want any of her money, he apparently has enough of his own.  The reason for the  She was too busy, as was he.  Just another casualty in the hollywood couple drama.

These coming weeks will be  the true test of our economy.  With the recession kicking everyones ass, money will not be given as freely as it has in christmas' past.  We will see what the outcome is directly after thanksgiving.

I on the other hand am contrary to the economy.  I am spending money in order to make it.  I decided today to take a random trip to san francisco and see friends and hang out.  No apparent reason, just decided to do it.  I really think what needs to happen is that people need to stop watching the news and spend money as they have always been doing.  The media does a great job of letting everyone know that we are in a recession and that you should be weary of investments.

I have no investments, no retirement, very meager savings and have a great life.  I live like there is no tomorrow and truthfully there may not be.  We scurry around our lives and hide our cheese in hopes that we will accomplish something with our money and leave it to our kids.  I say live your life and keep doing what your doing.  your kids will be fine.

May you be blessed this holiday season and learn to live, not in fear but in love and trust that the universe has your best interest at heart.

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 …
