oh reality TV

How i loathe thee...let me count the ways. So lets see, we have shows like The OC, The Hills, Keeping up with the Kardashians, Real Housewives of (whatever), big brother, big sister, sisters momma, mommas momma....

Seriously, I know some of those shows don't exist but mark my words, they will be coming soon to a television set near you!

Have our lives become so inconsequential that we have to resort to watching other peoples lives on TV, wishing , longing for, hoping to have a piece of the so called "reality" we see on TV? GET A FUC&*%G LIFE! If your life is that bad, you are that miserable and you are that boring that you have to watch a show that makes you wish to be someone else or be able to spend a day in someone else's shoes, you need to re evaluate.

I refuse to watch that crap and when i say crap, i really mean CRAP! Go read a book. There was this awesome thing that was founded hundreds of thousands of years ago called a library. It doesn't cost you anything to join (unless you loose your card) and you can get some great information there. If reading isn't your thing, try taking your TV obsessed girlfriend or boyfriend for a walk, without your cell phones and have what some people call a conversation. Remember those, you would get on the phone or actually talk to someone face to face? If you want a refresher, call me...not text, call and I can explain what a conversation is.

Seriously, lets not become a society of idiots. Lets actually try to make a better place to live for our kids (I have none that I know about, that doesn't mean Im not nervous). Lets set an example for future generations that we REALLY wanted to leave the world a better place. Better yet, throw your television out the window, or better yet, call up your cable company and s*&t can your cable service. (I can hear death threats being generated in boardrooms at Cox, at&t and verizon as i write this). Lets become human again and not robots

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 …
