The life of a TD/PM.

Okay so you may ask what is a TD/PM. I am referring to Travel Director/Project Manager. I actually like to call them traveling project manager's or TPM. Our life is very sporatic and love lives only occur on the road with the people we meet. It is impossible to be in a relationship with the work we do. Many of us are gone 250 to 300 days per year and with that type of schedule, there is little room for romance.

Sometimes we do the unthinkable for peanuts. We rise before most of the world has gone to sleep, we make sure that registration packets are stuffed, collateral is colated and participants of any event are having a great time, and if they aren't, how we can make their lives better. Sometimes we don't sleep much and we wake up at the sound of nextels not really going off. We take the job home with us as we freak out everytime a nextel goes off.

Our naps, if ever, are short and only about 15 minutes. We try to push the limits sometimes and drink until 2 in the …

So how do you start a blog off during a wierd time in life? The same way as everyone else, you sit down and write what comes to your mind. I reflect a lot on my life and where i am and if I wil ever get to that point where I feel i can relax a bit. I think the blog is the only place i can write what i feel and not be judged or where people give me useful advise. Sometimes you call a friend or family member and they want to solve your problems. Sometimes, i just need a listening ear and this way I can put down my thoughts without feedback, except for the music that I listen to at this moment.

So i was a little blue today after i got off work. I went and worked out and sat in the steam room. when i was finished, i went upstairs and changed. I trudged down to the "terrace" restaurant after contemplating for 20 minutes if i should order room service. I ordered the kobe beef burger and a baked potato. T…

Police concert kicked ass

All i can say about this particular concert was WOW. Best concert I have been to in a long while. I was able to admire a new side of the police. They have mellowed out a bit, but they added their own flair to the concert. Althought it wasn't as up beat as their albums, it had a much more soulful feel.

Sting still has amazing vocal capabilities. He belted out songs as he did in his 20's and 30's. He looks great for whatever age he may be. They started the evening with message in a bottle and finished up with every breath you take.

I was able to snag a couple of one minute videos with my blackjack. they are not the best quality, however, I think you will still appreciate the ability that the police have to move a crowd. They are still high energy and pulled a double encore. Total time, They played for 3 hours. Ticket prices may have reflected that, but it was well worth it.

I had a great time and was so thankful that i could experience such an amazing event.

random thoughts...

This may be a subject I have touched on before, but it is something that has reared up in the past few days. Many of you may or may not know about and that is up to this point, i have sucked with regards to my personal finance. I went from being at a pont of being able to take care of my finances and never worrying, to always worrying about finances. It is only recently that I have been able to pay my requirements.

It has also become evident once again that I am not able to be in a relationship because of the worry of my current finances. It is too much a worry on my mind and because of it I am working my ass off as much as i can to pay the current obligation. I think that because I am not financially close to stable, it makes me realize that I have to be financially stable for my piece of mind in order to be in any sort of relationship.

At this time, I don't think i can handle a relationship for 2 reasons,
1. I just recently ended a 5 year commitment
2. I am not in a point wher…
