things i need...

Todays entry will be brief, but i realized today that I cannot be without bicycle. I love riding and not being able to get on a bike and work out my frustrations, leaves me mildly incomplete. It is a rush and a breath that can be obtained nowhere else. My bike is beautiful and i love it. I connect with it and without a complaint, it takes me 20, 50, maybe even 100 miles to a place that i have seen but a handful of times.

I did visit a great coffee shop today
2 spoons Coffee Company
3829 Plaza Drive
Oceanside, CA 92056
(760) 724-1220

I met Derek Caputi, the owner and the day before I had to pleasure of being served by the beautiful Becca. The coffe is fantastic and the atmosphere is very cozy. Free Wi-Fi and right next to performance bike. If you are in San Diego, Drive up to 2 Spoons. Not all coffee is created equal and 2 Spoons has a great cup of Joe. Also, all you cyclists that keep up with my blog, remember to check this place out. Could be a good place to grab a cup of joe while grabbing some great gear at performance for your bike.

I did go on a 25 mile ride today and it was just like i had never left the bike. Wonderful ride, even though my ass hurts (stiff saddles will do that to you). You have to give your self a few days to get calloused. Once that happens, its smooth sailing. Many people make the mistake of getting a real cushy seat...bad idea. Chaffing is the culprit here. go for a stiffer seat and that way your energy is transferred to the pedals, not the seat.

If you ever want to ride, you know how to reach me.

May you have a blessed evening.

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 …
