Out of left feild


I started to think about the events that have happened in my life recently, the good things and the bad, the victories and the struggles, and I’ve realized something. Being a part time blogger with only the things I choose to expose to the public eye, being out in the open, I always remember to leave you certain things. I’ve gotten asked, via tumblr, how come I never address my problems via my blog or tumblr, whether it be relationship problems or just something going on with family or friends. Well I didn’t answer the person’s question directly, I simply gave them a link to this blog and a date to go read it.

There is a logical explanation as to why I don’t talk about my relationship issues. I don’t want my dirty laundry out there for everyone to see. If I’m having a problem with a particular person there’s no reason for them to read about the situation on my blog, although I don’t consider it to be an off limits subject. It’s just something I do out of respect for the other parties as well as myself, and although I would love to be just as big as some of my favorite celebrities, I want to learn from their mistakes, not recreate them. Lets take Nikki Sixx and Kat Von D’s relationship for a example, in the public’s eye, there was the normal tabloid reports that always surface when the couple is famous, but when they each released a book during or shortly after the down fall of there relationship they both sort of made the other person look like a bad guy in my eyes. Although I’m sure this was done unintentionally  I don’t want to be like that, my relationship problems are, in fact, just that, MY PROBLEMS. So for that particular visitor, I hope that answered your question.

I’ll see all you next week!


Just My Luck


 So I was planing to focus on one topic in this post, however, I regret to inform you that based on the events that have happened just prior to this posting being written, it will be rather long and rambling. So as you all I know I was asked to go to New York with my brother, I was going to pretty much experience what the city has to offer to an extent. Well…now that has changed considerably  There is still a trip and it will be to the east coast, but it will not be directly to the New York/New Jersey area…instead it is somewhere in northern Delaware.  Apparently it’s within about two hours of New York and a hour away from Philadelphia, but with it not being the the place I’d always dreamed of going…it leaves me with the question…should I still go? If I do I realize that means I’m probably going to be sitting in a hotel the majority of the time. So far I’m still undecided…

Next up, I officially added my lovely girlfriend, Jess, as an editor on this blog, so please feel free to leave a comment on here thanking her for correcting my horrible spelling and grammar.

I have decided however to go ahead and get the camera equipment I was wanted before going to on the trip, regardless of if I go or where it is that I may be going. I figure it’s not just something I’ll use on trip, it’s something I’ve been looking into for at lest a year, but I’m almost sure it’s in the area of two to three years. Before you ask…if I do go on the trip…regardless of the location i will still be taking pictures along the way, which will then be edited and uploaded to the interwebs.

Yesterday I went and picked up my cousin from his house for a weeks long stay at my house in order to finish a commission that he’s doing for my friend Ben. Needless to say, I was up late last night playing video games and working with him on said commission.

Alright, so here’s the real pain in my behind. This morning I grabbed my laptop which had been put into sleep mode the night before, and set aside while not being used (even though I thought it was going to be a matter of about an hour or so, which turned into it sitting there unused all night), and when I started it back up there was a little icon in the bottom corner of the screen showing a little red “X” by my battery icon. Which, after hovering my cursor over, means that there is a problem with my battery, which you may know that I’ve had for less than a week… ONE WEEK!!!!! Actually I personally haven’t even had it a week, I got it this past Sunday and it is officially Saturday morning. Anyway, I tried restarting my computer and blowing some canned air in the battery slot on my laptop to make sure it wasn’t just some access dirt or something that had made its way in there…but no…nothing helped. Since I got it as a payment from a friend for doing a custom layout for one of his social networking pages, he ordered it via his eBay account…now, granted I do know the password for it, it is going to be rather hard to work all this out, given that I wont get any sort of alert that the seller has replied to my message unless I happen to think to log into the account and…well you get the idea…What a wonderful way to start your morning. Now it’s not just a “man-this-blows” moment because my battery is faulty, but it sucks even more because the seller doesn’t cover return shipping costs and there’s sort of a time crunch to get a replacement if I wanna get everything back up and running in case I decide to go on that trip. What a great way to start a day, am I right??

Since you all stayed with me, and read through all of my ramblings, I’m going to give you guys a special something. Ok, most of you wont care but its the thought that counts isn’t it?

As very few of you may know I’m a mincraft fan, and I do try to build realistic things in it from time to time (I play on Xbox 360, and no I don’t have Xbox Live). Last night I started rebuilding the single biggest thing I had ever attempted  Awhile back I started building  a hockey arena, and I had it close to completion but I lost the flash drive that particular world was saved on. So since I had more than just myself to actually build it  I went ahead and started. I didn’t finish it but I did get the ice laid down and a decent amount of the seating put in on once side…so today’s treat is…a scan of the  little blueprint that i made up for the ice its self. Showing you where all the lines go and how many blocks and blah blah blah. Sooo, for those of you who care, please enjoy…and no I’m not going to give you the information on how to build the rest of the arena. That’s for me to know and you…well I’m sure you’ll see the arena but I’m not gonna say you’ll find out how I made it.

Until next time, Stay classy WordPress…oh and keep a eye on your laptop battery.

*I wonder what else will happen today*

Getting back into the swing of things: attempt number…who knows


As I sit here on my computer, day after day, searching for some form of inspiration to create something other than the small bits of graphic design work I do for my friends, I realize that, once again, I have failed to update this blog in the process. I read plenty of blogs online scattered among a bunch of different themes, and yet some how it never sinks into my head that I have had loyal readers and I’m sure I have lost the few that I’ve had in the past. So now, once again, I sit here planning to relaunch or start to regularly update this blog, yet I know that more than likely I will fail.  Maybe that’s not the right way to look at it, though.

I’ve tried to get my beautiful girlfriend Jess (whom I’m sure you have seen at least mentioned in past blog entries, well before I took the old ones down) to start blogging for whats seemed like years, and she has finally started. In fact it is the inspiration that I’m gathering from her…hearing how she has two posts on her blog and gets more views than I ever get, and she’s just starting out, that is making me try again. It’s not that I’m jealous or even that I feel that I should be better, it’s just that it reminded me that I used to love doing this. I used to make sure to update weekly, if not daily.

What happened?

I’m not sure, but thanks to seeing her drive, her willingness to still push content out, regardless if two people read it or two hundred, I want to try again.

So this, more than likely, wont be counted in my weekly posts just because I consider it more of a declaration than a regular post….so with that being said….

I’ll see you you on Friday.

*thinks…man it feels good to say that again…*
