Day 2-Buenos Aires, Argentina

Noah and I woke up at 11. We grabbed some water from a local store and hit the road, guns ablazing. We walked to Avenida 9 de Julio, which is the main street running east west through downtown Argentina. We snapped some photos of the Obelisk, grabbed some coffee and decided to head towards the water.

We stopped at the "Rose House" which is like our equivelent of the white house, only not active, no security and basically for historical purposes only. We did a 30 minute tour learning about the history and about many of the rooms and what happened. The guides for the most part spoke spanish and english, so we weren't completely lost

After the presidential palace, we walked over to a new district of town on the water. We had a great lunch a restaurant called Simone and after lunch we walked down Puerto Madera, which is a really cool area with a boardwalk that goes on for several miles. We took numerous photos and then headed back to the hotel

We made our 630 meeting with the tour group. A bunch of Aussies, brits, two islanders and 1 kiwi. We decided to go for drinks and dinner. We started out by drinking 8peso vodka (aka paint thinner). We ended up going to dinner at a no name place that even if i did remember the name, i would never subject friends or family to it. The food tasted like cardboard and the wine the girls ordered came in tea kettles for god sake. When i asked for a beer, they brought me a 40. We went back to the hotel and proceeded to drink more paint thinner (bad idea).

At about midnight we all decided to go to san telmo, upon leaving I ran into my 19 yo fan club from Chile. She was infatuated with me to say the least. We chatted until 3:30 in the morning and didn't solve any of the worlds problems or really figure anything out for that matter. I decided it was wise to call it a night (I am brilliant like that)

More tomorrow...(if i can find my head)

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 …
