Life in General

Well, life is barreling on and getting better every day.  Unfortunately a new job I landed will prevent me from talking too much about my freelancing career. I am a new blogger over at [Freelance Folder][1], which I am very excited about. That means...

Freelance Update

It's been a while since I've posted a self-serving blog post about my freelancing career, so it's time to change that.  I've been doing a lot of things right in my career lately, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I've been using social media to get...

Thirty. I can barely believe it.

I turn 30 years young tomorrow. People keep asking me if I'm weirded out or concerned or scared of turning another decade older, but I'm really not. It's not that big of a deal to me. I mean, I guess if given the choice I'd prefer to stop getting older,...

One of these days...

One of these days, I'm going to start a blog entry without apologizing for lack of blog entries. It's been a common theme of mine to always start off after a long absence with an apology, and today is no different. I've been slacking. I apologize. But...

Married Man

Yep, I'm a married man, and I have the pictures to prove it. If you're wanting prints, buy them through Wal-Mart here: [Trip around Vegas][1] [Professional pictures][2] (You need the release to get these printed) [Our Trip to LA][3] [Horseback...

iPhone 3GS Video

I keep thinking to myself I need to upload more stuff to YouTube. I don't know why. Just a weird motivation to put my stuff out there to the world, but it was always a hassle. Record something with a camera/camcorder, import it to the computer, edit it...

Redoing an old Bike

When I first went freelance I said one of the reasons I was doing it was to give myself more time for personal projects. So far I've had substantially less time. To that end, I've forced myself to restart a project I got into last summer, which is redoing...

Rock Island Trail

I finally found the opening of the Rock Island Trail off Pioneer Parkway, and [here it is][1]. It was a great little bike ride I took down the trail, but the best part was the tunnel that went under the highway. Check it out: The tunnel was pitch black...

Randomosity

Well, I thought it would never happen as the gears must turn really slowly in the land of tech blogs, but I finally got my contract to start my part-time, contracted career as a blogger/writer. Who woulda ever thought that people would be paying me for my...

To Freelance or Not to Freelance...

... That is the question. It's been a question I struggled with recently, as a job opportunity popped up that seemed perfect for me. It was one of those job descriptions where you read it, and it reads exactly like you're resume. It was with a...

Long time, no blog.

I know, I've been slacking on my blogging duties in a big way. That doesn't mean that things aren't happening, it just means it's been hard to find the time to type about life when I've been too busy living it. My good buddy Rad Jose made a temporary...

Dumps

I'm a bit down in the dumps lately. It's no secret that I took a pretty good pay cut when I went from my insurance job into freelancing. I figured I'd accept the pay cut as a brief sacrifice that, eventually, I'd be able to make up, give myself a nice...

Freelancing Crisis

I'm babysitting my nephew as I type this, but he's mumbling under his breath and jumping around wildly as he plays Lego Star Wars, so I bet he won't even notice I'm typing away on my blog. Last week I hit a huge speed bump in my freelancing career. While...

Engaged, Part 2

Hill read my previous post about being engaged and thought it needed a little adjusting. The line about us being happier after the wedding than before it doesn't mean we're not happy now, just that things keep getting better for us and will continue to do...

Engaged

I guess I could make a big long blog post about getting engaged and everything like that, but everyone who would be interested in that stuff already knows we're engaged, they know how it was done, and they've seen the ring. I can't wait to get on with the...

Work, work, and more work.

Man, I've been kickin' butt and takin' names when it comes to my new(ish) freelancing career. My March has so far been completely insane and, while I do finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and work letting up, it is also a scary proposition to...

Old School stuff

Well, this weekend I decided to start tackling this huge pile of unused hard drives that have been sitting on my shelf for way too long. I was able to take these old hard drives from my college days and recover a lot of the files. It's interesting to see...

Worlds Colliding

For those of you who don't know, I'm a fan of old Loveline/Adam Carolla. As a geek, I'm also a fan of Leo Laporte, and was even interviewed by him back when I was internet-famous for that summer. I assumed these worlds would never collide, but thanks to...

Purple Monster Dishwasher

Well, my little plan to restore my love of illustration has definitely helped. I bought a Cintiq and am still adjusting to it, but in the meantime I'm drawing for an hour or 2 per night and posting the results to whoever will let me, including the blog...
