the generosity of friends...

Well as many of you know, i recently had to move from Carlsbad. It was a challenge to say the least. I wasn't looking forward to it and really had no idea what lay in store for me. I decided to put my best foot forward and just accepted things as they were. I would put out to the universe that i needed a place to live. My friend Noah asked his dad if there was any room in either of his two houses ( he has two homes on one lot...built the first one for the family and as the family expanded he built the second guest house). As luck would have it, Noahs brother had to move out because his hours were cut at work.

Robert, Noah's dad, called me and said the place would be ready by the 1st. After 3 failed attempts at trying to get a roommate from craigslist, I listened to the universe and said "i think Roberts offer is the most solid" and i took him up on it.

I moved in on Tuesday and got completely settled in today. I am a very simple man so i don't have lots of posessions. I do have a nice bed...a very comfortable bed that helps me sleep like a baby through the night. I am blessed in that department. The place is very cool and i was welcomed with open arms as i came in. I also save about $300 dollars a month on rent in utilities and whatnot.

This place is very close to the ocean
The weather is nice always because we are close to the water and if i didn't mention, the kids (cats) are happy. They have been engorging themselves with spiders and Crane flies..., it is quite cute.

I have attached some pics of the new place and the surrounding area:

As I always say, things have a way of working out for the best and its not really up to me. I am blessed and settled in, for now, but who knows what tomorrow brings, I don't and I look forward to that adventure.

Until next time....

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 …
