Mind Dump – Stop with the Cliche’s

More and more cliches

Coming up next

Basically I took a long time to write about new beginnings

I’ve been bombarded with work

I’ve been bombarded with tasks

I’m sitting on a plane typing on my phone because I forgot to download a good game to play before takeoff

I tried studying notes

But 20 minutes in and my brain was fried

Now I’m sitting on a plane typing on my phone

Repeating the same line

Get to the point damnit, ppl don’t have all day

Ok, ok

*sips cranberry juice out of a clear small plastic cup with light ice*

First week in to a new adventure and I have mixed emotions. I’m thrilled by the learning and level of tech around me, but I’m still worried about the teams I left behind.

I was relied on to build, support, and maintain many projects.

I rejected them all.

I left them unattended.

I moved on from the norm.

I have a new beginning.

A new chance to test myself.

A new mindset.

I’m leaving it all behind and pursuing what I think is “right”

It’s all cliche right now and I’m tired of sitting on this plane. Im waiting for these plane wheels to come out and smash onto the pavement. As soon as that happens im turning back on this damn 4g (outdated) overly expensive internet plan and going ham on these apps.

All this worry for 3 notifications. Two from family and one from a spam marketer. I’m glad they’re always checking up on me.

Either way, new beginnings blah blah

The start of this new process will take some getting use to, but im never looking back. The grind never stops and all I can do is keep advancing.

I should write more, but im a workaholic.

Other things are “more important” I always say.

But what’s really important, is living in the moment.

Living every moment to it’s fullest.

Remembering to smile even though the mask hides it all.

Yep im losing my mind on this plane. No wifi and another 2 hours to go. Thought it would be nice to check in. ><

The Next Global Concern: Cyber Security

Stay woke. The real global concern will come up in the next 2-5 years ——> Cyber Security and online hacks.

Imagine a situation where Internet and telecom communications just suddenly “went out.” You can’t contact your friends or family or research any information online. Definitely bound to happen given the heavily reliance on specific cellular carriers and ISPs.

How would that affect your current lifestyle, job, or even investments? Imagine everyone who would run to withdraw money and purchase commodities. I’m not prepared for it and very worried how the city/public will react to it.

Invest in cyber security and raw materials 💯

My Stock to Watch in 2021 is NCLH

Whos willing to take a bet on NCLH – Norwegian Cruise Lines?

Their stock is at a historical low ($25/share) when it usually costs around $55/60.

The problem is the COVID and “No Sail” orders.

Basically, the stock will continue to be low until we get signs of the travel restriction being lifted.

Q1: Can NCLH hold on long enough without going under? With no foreseen end.

Q2: Are you willing to risk throwing away that $$$ for a chance at a 2x or 3x return?

Q3: Are you willing to let that money sit for 4-5 years before seeing profit?

My head is saying yes, but my common sense is saying hold. I need help!

*I know absolutely nothing about stocks, so don’t take my advice on anything in regards to investing. Im just writing out my thoughts on NCLH and deciding if I should purchase now or hold my position.

COMMENT 1: “Id say it will be a low chance it will recover fully. People are no longer wanting to be crammed into confined spaces where sickness spreads. For a punt it may work, but from a technical view its not likely to see big returns”

RESPONSE 1: “I agree. I still think the number will jump back to at least $40 range when the no sail orders are lifted. With all the eager buyers and operations green light I’m sure people will eat up the stock while they can driving the price upwards.

The company has too many capital assets and inventory to not be successful. As soon as the no sail orders are lifted, it should immediately jump.

There’s no way it stays at $25. It’s really profit or bust in 5 years. All depends if they can stay afloat (no pun intended)”

COMMENT 2: “NCL will recover but not pre covid for years… most new bookings are not bookings at all… just rebooking from previous cancelations. Expect about 5 years to see a real profit.

Also… I believe cruising will start in other countries before the USA… CDC guidelines only operate in the USA… but the cruiselines can depart from other ports like Europe and start generating profits”

RESPONSE 2: “Yikes if the reports are showing rebookings, the return data could be skewed. I would think they get written off as a loss at the end of the year. Something else to look out for 👀

You slip and you fall

Get back up

Stay focused on the journey

Your goal

Stay focused

Even with the external mayhem going on outside

(Or Inside)

Take the long road

Go around the muddy waters

Don’t stop

Stay looking ahead

Do you see it

It’s success

It’s closer than you think

Lost in My Memory

Many of my previous posts were deleted over the weekend.


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.


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


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