It’s getting close to one month of being unemployed and it’s the weirdest feeling ever! I can’t actively look for a job right now until I have my spinal cord/neck surgery but I can do odd programming jobs here and there. One thing, my XBOX360 scores have gone up exponentially!
Andrew has been coming around a lot lately and working on some recordings and beats. He’s going to be leaving real soon for New Orleans!
After 28 years of continuous work I got my first pink slip ever! It’s a weird feeling to not get up early in the morning and head to work. Now I get up, hop on the computer and go job searching. I heard it was tough out there to find a job and now I’m getting the full story. What I did for a living is hard to find in a economy that is cutting back mass production. The days of producing high tech industrial electronics in mass quantities seems to be behind us. I can remember a few years ago setting up production lines in China thinking how can there possibly be enough buyers. I suppose at that time companies were buying anticipating huge sales and there were, for awhile. It seems the high tech industry has slowed down to a crawl customers are buying just to fill current orders and not taking in a backlog avoiding a huge inventory. Customers are getting tighter with their dollars and it has affected everyone from the engineer designing the product to the assembler building it. I fall in between that tech food chain and now feeling the full affects. So what do I do? Take time off staring at sites like monster.com and type a few lines here to distract me for a minute. Oh well, nuff’ said, back to the search…
I haven’t blogged in a long time. I thought I’d enter something to make sure it all still worked. Going in for surgery in a few.
It has been so long since I’ve posted on my blog it took me awhile to remember my password. I guess everything is still working…
This week is going to be torture motorcycle riding the local streets at slow speeds. The temperatures hitting 105-110 degrees!
Just chillin’ and watching this years superbowl match between the Patriot’s and Giants. Asit turn out the Giant’s took the game with only a couple of minutes to spare! On of the best games I’ve ever seen.
I’m sending this using my Sony UX280P. It will take getting used to this piece of hardware. The cool thing about this I’m able to mostly everything from a single device.
It was THE WORSE weather conditions since I started my riding streak. A major storm hit Northern California and I was determined to not take the car and ride it out. I have to say I used a lot of my past riding experience in that short 1.5 hour trip to work. I also gained some 10 fold.
A lot of accidents on the freeways as well as surface streets. Cagers were crunching it everywhere. I had to keep a close eye around me at all times. I’m not sure I would purposely ride a storm again in the future after experiencing this one.
By the way I should mentioned I completed my streak of 1 year riding to work on a motorcycle. I still haven’t driven the cage to work. I’m thinking of a new goal of 2 years. Well see…
Bugs getting waiting for J-Lo time! We had dinner at the Grill, a restaurant located in the HP Pavilion complex. It was real nice since you ate and relaxed and different have to wait in line.
As expected on Labor Day the only carwash places that are open are the ones you sit in. I took Lorraine’s car to get washed earlier this morning. It took close to an hour to get through the lines.
