So today, I decided to start a new project. After an hour or so of delibration, I believe the route I am going to go is a recipe collection "web app". I intend to update this post once a day, at the end of the day, for 1 week. By the end of the week, I plan to have the site in working condition, with user accounts, and the ability to add recipes to your account, and to share these recipes out to the current "main" social networks.
So here I sit, 20 years old, with a full time job in my dream field, making enough money to fully support myself, to pay all of my bills, and still cover most, if not all, of my various wants and desires. I sit here and think to myself about so many different things. Things that I could do to make my life easier, to make the company I work for more successful, to be a happier person all around, but yet, it seems no matter how much I think on the topic, I never seem to advance at all. When I first started my job, every day was a struggle, every day I would come in, and it was a challenge for me. I was constantly teaching myself new things, new ways to do things so I could do my job better. But now, due to circumstances that are well out of my control, I feel stuck. I feel as if everytime I try to make a decision, or try to make an improvement, I hit some hypothetical wall that stops me dead in my tracks. I just can't figure it out.
I try to start a new personal project, like creating a new project management system for our internal use, and it all is going well, and then I get overwhelmed by something else and just stop. I don't know what causes it, and I really don't know how to fix it. Deep down I have this desire to kick ass on this project, to really make something amazing that will be used, and will be a massive improvment over what we currently have. However, I just can't seem to push myself to do it. I just can't encourage myself to get up, and do it. More than anything I wish I could. I wish I could find that motivation to kick myself in the ass again, and really start churning out new things, but for some reason I can't.
I don't know if it is because I have so many ideas that every one just keeps conflicting with all the rest, so I get nothing done. I know that I have a problem, and I know that I want to fix it. I just simply don't know how.
So it's officially one month until I fly for the first time. I am traveling to New York for a 6 day vacation, and we have a lot planned, including visiting Chinatown, The Chrysler Building, and Central Park.
I am not sure how to feel about flying, one side of me is extremely excited, while the other side is scared to death. It seems like it will be an awesome experience, but I just have never done it before. Once I get there I am sure I will have a blast, and will want to stay longer.
We are planning on visiting many different attractions, including Grand Central Station, The Botanical Gardens, NBC Studios, one of the zoos, maybe the aquarium, The Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building.
Windows 8 Beta Review
Here is my in depth, Windows 8 beta review. It sucks. My desktop is NOT a tablet, contrary to whatever Microsoft may think, so don't give me an exact copy of your tablet OS for my desktop. While having two 24" touch screen monitors would be cool, I don't have them, which makes Windows 8 sucks. It is difficult to navigate without a touch screen, and they change core things that should never be changed on a windows machine (ex: no start menu). Also, the integration of the Xbox crap, really? It's a PC, not a console, and not a tablet. Apps, a notification center,everything is powered through your Microsoft account, and not even Solitaire works correctly. I had very high hopes for this, and though it is the first public beta, it sucks. As a tablet OS, it would be awesome, but keep this away from any and all PC's, end of story.
Welcome to my new website!
Thanks for dropping by! Today is the day that I finally place this website live to the world. I spent forever picking a design that I was happy with, and it seems every time I come back to make any change, no matter how small or quick, I want to just keep changing and updating, so hopefully by placing this live, I will no longer have that temptation. However, I will still be updating this site frequently, but not with color changes and image updates. Feel free to check me out on any of the social sites listed above, or find out more about me and who I am. If you have any suggestions, or just want to get in touch with me, feel free to contact me.
