Lost in My Memory

Many of my previous posts were deleted over the weekend.

Why?

I had to handle a server migration.

Basically, I moved all of my active websites to a new hosting platform.

This caused me to take backups of my sites beforehand, but did not capture all of the database/posts I made after the backup.

Thus, many of my recent posts were lost.

Its all good though, because I remember the stories clearly in my mind.

Considering rewriting them, but not too motivated to do it.

Fathers Day on Skid Row

Taking a walk through Skid Row

Everyone out here is enjoying their Sunday.

BBQs, music, dancing.

I’m at a small get together right now listening to MARTIN on someone’s giant Bluetooth speaker. ***Pam is crazy!***

It’s tough driving by this place and looking at the tents, litter, and pretty much everything bad. But taking a step back and listening to everyone and seeing their faces feels good.

These people are happier than me.

Now back to work.

How to find new Cannabis Products?

By working for the man.

Doing research about the product.

and trusting brands you’ve probably heard of.

Its hard to find new Cannabis products. Im tired of the same catalog of vapes and edibles.

Not a fan of flower (against popular opinion)

Not interested in disturbing others (with smell)

Not really interested in experimenting without proper guidance. Or a “smoke buddy” as us hipsters call it.

But when I see something I like

and I can trust it won’t make me:

trip out,

knock out,

or genuinely spaz out,

I’ll go ahead and try it out.

Here’s a marijuana delivery service that I recommend for the best THC products in the game. Grassdoor.

They are expensive.

Use this referral link to get 25% off your first 2 orders.

The island chill pre-rolls look like tampons. You’ve been warned.

Pro tip:

Sativa makes you creative, goofy, and social. Gives me headaches.

Indica chills you the f* out. Relaxes the muscles and makes you sleepy. Also makes me lazy.

People Really Need Entertainment

It’s been a while since I’ve written here.

I always want to give updates, but I never find the time to sit down and write. *actually type…because it’s 2020.

Procrastination is real.

I promise to catch you up with my thoughts and experiences, because lord have mercy…there has been many.

FB slander, a crazy germaphobic passenger, and an intern that doesn’t follow directions. Man, there has been a lot. But right now, I need to ramble about this Corona Virus-COVID-19 whatever you’re local brainwashing media tells you.

Los Angeles is basically shut down with a “Stay at Home Order.” People who are out in public are required to cover their face and basically not be social. It’s not normal.

I’ve had people randomly try to start conversations with me after saying “hey” or “how’s it going” or even “good morning.”

I’m a REAL introvert. Most of the time I’m saying these phrases to be courteous. These obvious people needing individuals (otherwise known as Extroverts) start rambling on just to keep the convo going.

I literally told a lady “hey what’s up” and she went on to say

“hi. It’s such a beautiful day outside. How has your day been?”

“It’s been good” I said.

She replies with: “that’s awesome” and proceeds to talk about how she’s thankful for her job and how she wants to buy an E-Class Benz because her car was stolen a couple weeks ago.

At this point, I’m just like….yeah I’m not the one. People really need entertainment.

Who knows when the order will be lifted?

Hopefully soon.

Everything Will Be Just Fine

Too many clients, not enough time.

Not enough staff (or maybe not enough employees you can trust)

You are a professional.

You do your job well and you know when a job is done well.

Take a step back.

Understand you can’t do it all.

You need help…even if you may not know it.

You will burnout.

You cannot expect to take on more clients without a team of people backing you up.

Morale of the story:

Don’t skip those very social Taco Tuesdays.

Don’t say no to happy hour because you’re “too busy” to attend.

Go out and meet new people.

Meet people that will help you develop your dream.

Take a step back and remember everything will be just fine.

Typical Friday Night

Introvert Fridays are the best.

I have no shame in connecting my phone to my TV in order to watch Youtube videos.

None.

I have no shame in watching 3 straight hours of InDesign tutorials.

None.

I have no shame in eating leftovers and staying in the house.

Some.

Back to the Real World

Half a year later and I’m finally writing again.

Where did I go?

Does it really matter?

Do you really care?

Probably not.

In the words of Kanye West, I’ve been in the “sunken place.” I’ve neglected the world for about 5 months and I’ve finally decided to rejoin it.

Some call it laziness.

Some call it depression.

I call it a failed experiment.

I attempted to work remotely overseas and continue to live my minimalistic lifestyle.

Didn’t work out as planned.

Now I’m back in LA and on the search for new opportunities.

Traffic, traffic, and more traffic

I am an LA baby and have spent hours, days, weeks, and months being stuck in traffic.

Today I find myself in Beijing China…also stuck in traffic.
However, this is traffic, unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
This traffic is frustrating.
This traffic is insane.
This traffic is downright ridiculous.

Imagine being 1 mile away from work and spending 45 minutes stuck in a sluggish moving traffic line full of transit buses, personal cars, people on mopeds, bike riders, and people walking. The people on bikes are moving faster than anyone else on the road.

Everyone is running into each other. Like ants.

This is how my morning is going.

I woke up today at 6:00 am in order to get ready and make it into work by 9:00 am.
I left the house around 7:40 am (10 minutes late) and ended up at my destination at 9:30 am.

The traffic today wasn’t unordinary.
There was no crash holding up the line. There was no issue with the subway routes. This was a regular old day in Beijing.

And what makes matters worst…I didn’t even have my morning coffee.
What a start to my day.

As I left the house this morning, I knew I was in for a treat. I used my iPhone to pay my transit fare on the first bus and was surprised that it wasn’t nearly as full as the other days. I actually could turn around and spread my legs while standing on the bus. Getting off the bus was smooth and painless.

The 2nd bus, however, was pure hell.
As the bus approached the stop, I could see the bus was literally at its capacity with passengers squeezed into the 3 layered bus. The bus driver barely had any room himself to drive this jalopy.

I opted to enter through the middle of the bus.
There were about 50 people lined up to get on this bus and there was about room for 5 of those people. However, like a giant centipede, everyone started pushing against each other and squeezing into the bus. Luckily I was near the front of the line and slid my way in rather easily. But literally, I had one chick being squeezed into my ribs and another guy next to me being pushed deeper and deeper into this packed bus. It was hell.

The bus smelled like sweat and stress.

Everytime the bus driver braked, the momentum would cause the whole pile to move. No one was safe.

I eventually got on the bus and into the crazily packed subway full of people trying to get to their destinations. Other than the fact the security people always wave their little stick near my grown, it was easy getting on the well air conditioned train. The only issue I had was all the people with hot morning breath.

I got off the subway and walked another 20 minutes to get to my destination. I literally had to keep my head on a swivel because bikes and motorized scooters kept swooping by me. Jeez Beijing has too many people.

I can’t get over how bad traffic is here. I miss LA.

30 Seconds of Your Life Wasted

Sitting in my chair watching Soul Plane wondering why this movie is so damn funny.

So many stereotypes.

I repeat…SO MANY stereotypes.

Anyways, I’ve been MIA for a while and dealing with life changes.

Most of this time has been wasted reading articles on social media, traveling around LA for work, and playing PS4.

Time wasted?

Or time well spent.

Probably both.

I continue to nerd out and spend money on tv show memorabilia and random electronics.

I don’t even have a wallet anymore.

I hand the cashier loose and folded dollar bills knowing damn well I hated getting those when I was a cashier.

Does that make me an asshole?

To sum it up, I’ve been busy.

The same excuse I tell my friends when they invite me to places. The same excuse I give to my family when they ask me to visit. The same excuse I keep telling myself everyday.

The truth is…

I just wasted 10 minutes of my life writing this and you just wasted 30 seconds of your time reading it.

Thank you come again 📖

Look at you. Company man

Look at you. 👀

Company man.

Make a catchy song.

You have great ideas

You over think everything

You’re a genius

You.

You’re set for greatness and you don’t even know it.

But you never act on your ideas.

You find one problem and toss them in the waste basket.

You’ve settled and you know it.

Look at you. 👀

Company man.
