Twitter Going Private?

Well looks like Elon Musk bought twitter. We have no real idea what is going to happen to Twitter in the short or long term. I will end up where the people I follow end up, or I might just end up here. Who knows.


Heads up this will be a stream of consciousness. This year has been really rough on everyone. I lost my job in June, spent the next 4 and a half months looking for work. Found a new job making 20k less than I was. My wife was in the middle of her Masters Degree in educaiton. She did her internship during the pandemic having to learn, not only to teach, but how to do it via zoom without he ability to go ask someone “next door” for help.

UGH 2020!!!

2020 has sucked… Got in a car accident, CoViD-19, my wife lost her job, I lost my job, etc… I enrolled at ASU for a bachelor’s in Information Technology, I start in the fall. Hoping that will allow me to stay in IT. I’m finding every job I look at requires a BA. :/ Any ways hoping and praying that the second half of 2020 is a lot better than the first half.

Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving, a time of family, of food, and of banging your head against a wall trying to wrangle your entire family to a single location at a single time… 😀 This year, like the last 3 I’m at my in-laws house cooking everything with my loving, and amazing wife. Fast Forward to December 4th… Thanksgiving ended up up being pretty good. The turkey turned out great (no picture though I did get 4 second video of someone’s feet as I was pulling the bird out), people showed up on time, and no one fought (that I know of.

How Is This Site Made Circa 2015

I recently switched from an OpenVZ VPS to a KVM VPS over at Ramnode. Mainly because I wanted to upgrade to CentOS 7. I figured it would be a good time to take a look at my site, and how I put it together. It was on Wordpress, but I wanted to look at alternatives and maybe find something with less overhead. I stumbled upon Jekyll. It looked insteresting and outside of the want of a photo gallery solution I thought it might fit for my needs.

Quotes:13 Going on 30

I think we all want to feel something, we have forgotten or turned our backs on, cause maybe we didn’t realize how much we were leaving behind we need to remember what used to be good. If we don’t we won’t recognize it even if it hits us between the eyes. -Jennifer Garner (13 going on 30)

Whats Your Fluffy

I love movies, and as such I tend to watch a lot of them. Sometimes the movie reaches into my mind and I take from it things and ideas that others may not. i.e. they make me think! My latest adventure was Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist. This movie came out in late 2008 to mediocre reviews. It is after all what I would call a smart high school movie. The idea of the film is that there is a band playing somewhere in New York City, NY and the principle cast is searching for this band.
