Still is I guess, but, today...I lost my job that I enjoyed so much. My own fault, and nothing I can change so,
here's to pushing forward.
Ok, so, the above was written on the 5th, when it happened. It is the 14th and no worse for wear. I will get through this just like all other chapters in my life. This one though, bothers me to no end and I suppose it will wear as i move forward, but I really enjoyed this job. Not so much the lonnng hours but, it was not that bad. Looking back...oh eff it. No use crying over spilled milk they say.
Wow...really? omg...so, apparently I didn't post this last time and here it is the 26th of March. But ya know...with all the "water under the bridge" I have good news to report: I will have a temp job into may...and will also be getting into my own apartment soon.
With that being said...THIS update...this segment isn't being "penned" on the 26...it is now march 31 2013...it is Easter and I am posting this RIGHT NOW!!!
Til next time....

My own fault and I hate myself for this BUT I will topple this predicament and move on!
What I am alluding to is the fact that I received my "walking papers" because of an incident in the company truck. I backed into a parked car...water under the bridge at this point. I am one week gone and I have a few weeks before the hiring procedure can go forward. No reason given nor should it be discussed, I'm a stupid man sometimes
Might I return to continue this later this evening, more to tell.

The subject heading may seem a bit misleading. It has nothing to do with dairy products. Please read on...
I just finished looking through the archive of all the LJ past journals that people have abandoned and, I don't know about you, but my first thought is "what happened?" Whats the story? Did you merely forget? That's not good enough...make something up. Imagine, you write of your squirmish with the police which lands you in "the slammer". Create! Anything is better than nothing at all. Yeah?
BUT, with that being said, only embellish if you have nothing. The "Kims" episode, was not an embellishment...unfortunately, it happened. I lived with a Korean couple. Hmmm, that's your next reality series...just sayin'.
So, anyway...what to write? I am at a loss. I certainly don't want to fill it with fluff. All I can do is write what is on the mind...um, nothing?
Really? Is that what this is going to be? The blank canvas lacking paint? C'mon...seriously. Delve into the archival footage, anecdotal avenue, if you will.
Maybe I will just come back to it....it is now 4:30 pm...brb
( 8:35p) And so, I am back. Wouldn't that be awesome, to hear someone like Jim Morrison say this? Elvis? Dare I say...Michael Jackson?
My thoughts on this, would be, again, Jim Morrison...but moreover, I would have to lump Layne Staley (Alice In Chains) and geez...Kurt? Those, lets say, who have had a profound impact on music. The plethora of musicians, artists, who met their untimely, tragic end by the way of "good ole" drugs. I say that tongue in cheek of course, regarding the drugs. But sadly, all too true.
So, with that being said...who would YOU like to hear this from? The one artist who instantly comes to mind, YOU would love to share a conversation with. Preferably dead...that's always good for the thought provoking nature. But if they must be alive, so be it...who is it?
Lets hear from you....drop me a line.
Until next time...

Again, my wish is to consistently write toward those who will share in life's thoughts. How was your day? Anything happen that might stand out?? Create...write about your experience...as I plan to keep doing.
Ok, so, I thought I might stop there, but realized the entry/posting might be too brief. So, where do I go from here. The day itself was a blur...went really fast. That's the way Mondays should always be, quick and painless. "Just like pulling off a bandaid...WE GOT A BLEEDER!!!" ("There's Something About Mary")
The weekend was ...well, unproductive? yeah...that's pretty much it. I fight with myself daily about the same thing. The NEED for the writing and planning to ramp up if I want to make my next dream a reality, and that is, a documentary short of the people of McNeil Island. I have the ideas written down...just haven't put them in a cohesive flow...I look forward to getting this done asap so I can move on to the next stage. Timing...its all about the timing, and if I don't "step it up, the project will suffer. I can't have that.
So with that being said, and tomorrow, just another day, lets hope that the ideas start to gel, and who knows...
Til next time.

Well last night found me to be quite the basketcase...and tonight I find myself the polar opposite. Not the "bi" polar opposite, but I am all over the map tonight. Attention deficit disorder running rampant....fun, good times. Capturing one particular thought, evades me. Long night as I feel completely wound up....gotta go...will add more but Starbucks needs to close...lolx

I went to Facebook to say a quick and long over do "hello" to my son, who I miss terribly. Then I got to thinking, how long I have been on my present "journey"...a journey that for me, has come full circle. But not without great sacrifice. I left my family down there as I could be where I need to be.
I grew up in Washington...this is home and always has been. When I moved to Texas with family in 1980, I lost all innocence and had to adapt quickly to a complete different environment. That island, that we lived on was sacred. But it instilled a venomous naivete` that I must admit, still challenges me today.
But that aside, Texas...I mean, yeah, I lived there for 30 years. Sure, it had its moments. many happy moments. My son, Trevor, was born in Austin. My nephews...same. We all grow roots...and for a long period, my root was drying up and my emotional growth, stunted. Truth being, I always belonged here in the Tacoma area. Roots do well in moist climate, and I feel the growth. (Woah there...that just sounded wrong...lolx, I'm sorry)
Ahem, where was I...?
That just totally came tumbling out....but anyhoo...onward and upward!
So I guess, the meltdown was good, and who knows, there may be more to come. All I know I miss my family more than I ever thought. I need a trip to Texas. More to come on this topic....

Because I had lived here for the first 16 years of my life, the day of the closing ceremony, I felt a need to be a little intrusive and summoned the audacity, to ask to set up in front, as I had my tripod and camera in tow. Surprisingly, they, whoever I spoke to that day...granted me access, just behind the quintet. I captured it, up close and personal. Maybe a bit "static" as I used my tripod rather than free hand, but the sound, picture...it all came out really well and as I layed down soundtrack and editing transitions, the finished project was my first and really got me into videography.
Anyway, hoping my upcoming project, will soon grow the legs and begin to run with it. It is coming...stay tuned!
And with that, thanks for listening to me continue to reminisce.
This will be a great platform to share the "shtuff" that went on...amazing days.
Til next time ;-)
