From 2007 and into 2008

Posted on 3rd January 2008

2007 will always remain the year that presented new ways of thinking and challenges. If there was ever a year that was consistent in change, this would be it for me. The year started out with my parents moving to York, PA. I remained in Columbus for three months. In late March, I ended a 5 year career with UPS and packed up everything I could fit in my car and traveled to New York City to live with my sister. That proved to be a rough yet fun 5 months. In September, I once again packed everything in the car and returned to Columbus. The 8 months prior to this helped me find out who I was and what I wanted to do. My intention by returning to Ohio was to finish school. This is my only objective now. I began the process of returning to Ohio State and began exploring my career field more deeply. As the year came to a close, I changed into a more responsible and humble person. I now have motivating goals and dreams. I know have the courage to finish what I started. I met loads of new friends, experienced things I could never experience living in one city, and learned valuable lessons that will remain with me for ever. As I move into  2008, I know my goals and know what needs to be done to meet these goals. 2008 will now be the year of rebuilding and hard work. Come 2009, I will be almost half way to my goals.


One More Year

Posted on 16th November 2007

Welp, I turned 26 today. I think this calls for a review of the last year of my life.

At the age of 25, I can only call this the year of change. I quit UPS, my parents and sister moved out of Ohio, and I moved to NYC. 25 was the age that I learned who I was and who I wanted to be. I went on a mission to find out what I wanted to do with my life.  I wanted to know where I would be in 10 years. To help aid my search, I moved to New York City in March. There I learned that life has a lot more then just college and drinking. I learned that I have potential and talents that society needs. Because of this, I decided to move back to Ohio to complete my education and increase my experience in the field I felt I was good at. I also used my experience and lessons learned to keep in mind that NYC was where I wanted to live. That is the fuel I am using to get through school. I know from the bottom of my soul that I want to go back to NYC after college. That is the lifestyle I want to live. I love the bustle of city life. Ya it is nice living in the suburbs and having cars to go anywhere, but being able to meet so many different kinds of people in a square block is more important to me. The bottom line for me is that I want to prove not only to myself, but to my friends and family that I am someone great. This is important to me. Why? Because I want them to be proud of me in every aspect. They know that I have a kind heart, but they don’t know that I am capable of great things. I never seem to follow through with what I say. Times have changed. I _have_ to follow thorough with everything. The move back to Ohio was good and bad at the same time. My friends are awesome. They have expressed nothing but gratitude for my return. They know my potential. They know that I am capable of great things. They also know that they now have the chance to see my evolve to that. I am thankful for it. I am thankful I have family that cares for me. If not for them, I would be some junkie on the streets. I know this.

That’s all I have for now. Its a bunch of rambling, but it is all true. Thank God for everything. Thank God for me and my family and friends. I would do anything for them.


Working Again

Posted on 27th October 2007

So I am working again. This is nothing noteworthy in any way. What is noteworthy is that I am in the planning and implementation stages of starting my own company. I just finished up one proposal with a company and will have to begin to draw up others in the coming weeks. I have not settled on a company name or anything like that…it will come in time.


Websites, Football, and Trips

Posted on 2nd August 2007

Been waiting for what seems like the better part of a week while the domain was being updated. It has been down since mid-July and has cut off email for a few players. Today, the domain allowed me to reset it to the server, so things should be ok once the DNS servers re-populate in the next few hours.

Joined a fantasy football league with the boys back in Ohio. We shall see how I fair in this game of pretend football.

Spent the better part of this week driving from the City to Ohio to try and retrieve the last of my personal items. Managed to get everything in the car except the TV and nightstand. I have a truck reserved for October to go and get the last of those items. I am also planning a trip to Hilton Head with the family next week in attempt to have somewhat of a summer.

Other then those items, not much else going on in Harshyland.


MTA Woes

Posted on 16th July 2007

Welp, what an interesting night it became. A friend from work had an underwear party at a bar just down from Times Square. Not too much going on there except the mass amount of buldge and a few good looking girls. I jus had a few beers. We go to the subway and my metrocard is expired. So I jump over the turnstile. That cost me a $60 fine. Word of advise here…don’t jump turnstiles even when no cops are around.

Still on the hunt for a good job in the city. Refining my resume has become hard, but I think I can find the right place for me to begin my career.
