houston, we have lift-off.

I am tired and ready to get on the road so that I’ll finally be there already. Wanna see what my car looks like?

Just barely enough room for myself…

change of pace

I have lived in Texas for approximately 22.5 years of my life. I lived in Colorado for 2 years of my life. Now, starting next week, I shall begin my life in Los Angeles, California!

I found out last night, after two sleepless, anxious nights that LA is my next destination. I am taking the week to say my goodbyes, or rather see ya soons, and then it’s off to the relatively unfamiliar place called la-la land.

Needless to say, I am excited! Better yet, I am apprehensively excited! This is the biggest change for me that I’ve ever been through. Hopefully, this will be the land of opportunity for me; it will be the best of what I make it. I have long term goals which I shall be pursuing with the help of my new roommate. He is a semi-famous guy who works in the music and television industry, and through his networking and my ambitious desire for accomplishment, I shall go out there determined to make my mark on that world.

The timing of this new adventure is absolutely impeccable! My last 8 months since graduating college have been sometimes difficult and depressing to me. The cycles were up and down and it was very tiresome. But my luck is now changed. This move is for the better, and I’m so ready for this new change of pace.

I know that an overall goal of mine is to make a mark in the world, to leave something behind wherever I go that shall help someone else to move forward.

I hope anyone who reads this and knows me will feel free to visit! I can’t promise a room for anyone right now because I still haven’t even gotten there yet. But, I will be there and ready for company at all times! It’s just strange to think that I won’t be in Texas for too much longer. It’s even more strange to know that I have no idea when I’ll be back here for a long period of time. I leave behind a lot of friends and family in the state. However, I know y’all are well taken care of. It’s now time for me to care for myself the best I know how!

In the near future (hopefully) I will update this website to include more features and a better layout. I have a lot of work to do on my website but not too much time in which I can do it right now. So come back soon for some more fun and lots of great California stories!!

nashville?

I decided to not go to Nashville. I talked to the studio manager and he reassured me that I wouldn’t be able to afford to be there. So I’m sorta back to the drawing board, and I have to find a place to live in less than two weeks.

lack of attention

No news yet. I’m working on so much right now that I’ve not paid attention to the website. I’ve been trying to update a new version of my website but I’m not 100% satisfied with it yet. Hopefully I’ll have it uploaded before the end of the month.

I’m still jobless, still looking, still trying to get on with something new. No one calls, I send out countless resumes, rinse, repeat.

I got the first two seasons of Family Guy on DVD finally so that’s definitely gonna take all of my time up.

I also have a lot of CDs that I mixed last year that I need to sell so please if you’re interested or know someone who would be, please buy a few! None of the profits go to me, it all goes to the college ministry The Annex up in Boulder, Colorado. It’s worth the support because the CD is awesome. Hopefully I’ll have one last formal plug in the future so that people will buy one!!

When I finally update my site, I’m going to upload a whole mess of new pics as well, some from my last road trip to Boston/NYC and some from recent trips.

Here’s a better link for those who want to see Alec’s first few days on earth outside of a womb. It’s very detailed and contains many pictures!

trial and error

I am trying to test and see if this is outputted correctly on my index.php page. I don’t know what to expect because I just overhauled the comments and integrated them with my bulletin board for better management and easibility with trying to integrate my site more efficiency.

I wonder what’ll happen if I type a whole bunch of paragraphs and see what happens here. I’m probably just a few more days/weeks from getting this preliminary site up and running and taking down the other site. It’ll be exciting to see everything said and done once I’m finished because this new version will be much better than my current version.

We’ll see what happens when it happens. I need to first get all the bugs out of the bulletin boards and change the visual styles as well before anything else.

Okay, I’m going to push return and see if this is long enough to fill up the whole page or most of the page just to see what happens. Oh yeah, and I need to make sure that the cellspacing is even.

lucky SOB

I thought I was gonna be screwed for the next week without a computer. I assumed everything died and I was gonna be dealing with this for the next few weeks . . . I was LUCKY.

After resetting the bios and clearing the CMOS (by taking out the battery for a few minutes), my computer started back up. That’s right, after a huge shock to the computer, a melted power cable pin on my hard drive, and a few hours of messing with everything, it turns out that everything is okay. I will have to figure out how to get a new hard drive to replace the one I messed up but that’s just a matter of time and I can wait.

So I’m much happier. However, I am feeling like crap!! I have been blowing my nose for the past two days and I’m ready to sleep the week away. And I’m sure I’ll be at work this weekend at the church. Blah.

Hopefully I’ll know more soon about where I’m going to end up. I need to find some kind of news out soon because I’m sick of not knowing.

crap

This sucks!!!! I fried a hard drive and probably a motherboard or power supply. Now I’m going to have to RMA my board back to the company and get a new one, but I first have to figure out what the problem is. I am getting more paranoid that my hard drive, the one with all the critical pics and such, is toast. I have a lot of data on there that I really can’t recover, and half which I can.

I hope that this turns out well, but we’ll see how things go in the next week.
