After graduating college, I was idealistic with big hopes and dreams. The problem when you’re a big dreamer with high hopes from life is that you easily can get all of that crushed by the harsh reality of moving out of the academic environment that has been so neatly organized for you into the more dynamic trenches of a regular job where college most likely hasn’t prepared you. So this story is a short one of what not to do in an interview right after college if you are like my former hopelessly romantic self.
So while driving to work today, I started realizing that I simply have way too many stories from working in the tech industry for the past 18+ years. I’ve been musing over how to disperse them in some format. Should I write a story? An autobiography? Snippets to Scott Adams?
Of course, the best answer is obvious: this blog!
Quite often, I’ll rip into Los Angeles in terms of its lack of planning or poor management as a city. But the thing that should be obvious by everyone who isn’t a selfish beach house living asshole is that Los Angeles is in dire need of a Metro line that runs along the coast. Perhaps, it should run parallel to PCH (the 1) or the 405. But no matter what, Los Angeles really needs this line more than ever.
Recently, I gave the Unhallowed Essence Hellcat Waistguard build a go since a friend of mine had been playing it a bit. The main motivation was my friend describing the build as being quite tanky. After giving the build a shot, I will admit that he was right.
This review won’t go into too much depth as compared to say my Game of Thrones reviews. Instead, I want to discuss my overall impressions about Iron Fist as well as addressing the criticisms of the show and determining whether they were warranted.
At the recent SXSW convention, Maisie Williams (and Sophie Turner) got fans hyped up for the upcoming Season 7 of Game of Thrones (which premiers July 16, 2017. The talks about Arya Stark’s long term role and favoritism by the writers made me muse over the real implications that the story is leading and is something I want to share here.
Things are slowly starting to settle for me with the new job. Some really nice things are coming up that ought to help put into place my long term goals. But the major point for me is that I’m really looking to ease up and just find a nice rhythm as opposed to working at a crazy start up environment where my life gets thrown up into chaos.
I haven’t really blogged on the topic of Diablo 3 for a while so I thought it might be good to talk about my current situation with the game, the few changes brought in this patch/Season and maybe looking forward a bit to the next season.
Los Angeles/California is perhaps one of the most frustrating places to live when it comes to tech. Here, we have one of the largest growing and existing tech centers in the world. Yet there’s a lot of nonsensical problems mired by resistance in ancient managerial culture that plagues this state and city.
So here passes yet another uneventful birthday. Perhaps, I could describe it as one of the worst birthdays in memory. That’s because most birthdays for me are as memorable as the plots and characters from the vast majority of stale Hollywood movies. I never really celebrate that often and don’t make a big deal of it neither. However, it’s a day I hate because everyone these days helps remind you that you’re simply getting one day closer to death.
