Travel Day-LA to Argentina

Noah and I were up at 4:45 sharp to get ready. We have turned into girls as we have gotten older. Seems like it takes us 45 minutes to do what we used to in 15. We seemed to get ready in a hurry. Only problem was Mr Potato. he didn't want to get up, so he slowed us down a bit.

We arrived in plenty of time to clear security, get some quick food, and stop to get noah some stuff for his throat, since he was a little under the weather with it. Before we knew it we were boarding our big bird to Atlanta, a Boeing 777-400. They are amazing, and very cool on the inside. I watched a few episodes of "Hung" and some TV and then before i knew it we were in Atlanta. We landed at the international gate so we didn't even have to change terminals, It was very nice. I think our plane was slated to go to Sydney after dropping us off.

We had time to kill since our flight wasn't boarding till 8pm, so we read, relaxed, listened to music and wrote in our journals. It was an interesting day. I watched many travelers as they boarded their planes, either back home or to a new vacation spot.

Traveling has always fascinated me ever since I was a child and my father, who owned North County Travel Service in Encinitas, California; took me to the airport. He used to drive all of his clients to the airport. He bought a Ford LTD wagon and would load all the luggage in the back. There were pop up seats in the back that he would let me sit in and he would say, "Okay Chad, you have to keep an eye on this luggage and don't let it move all over," I would reply with a , "you got it dad," and then show him my muscles, as to let him know, I was on it. I remember watching my first plane take off at lindbergh field and I was hooked. The first time I got to fly an airplane to visit my grandparents in New Orleans, was National Airlines. They let me have cards and a pin for my shirt. The stewardess (now known as a flight attendant) thought I was so cute, she moved me up to first class. I got a cheeseburger, fries and a coke. Man, i was in 7th heaven, but i digress...

Noah and I boarded at 755. I popped two melatonin to help me sleep. We were served a quick dinner and then I watched "Ghosts of Girlfriends past", a very fitting movie for me since i have commitment issues. Before i knew it, I was out like a light, with neck pillow and blankie to keep me warm

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 …
