Damn it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here. Like over 6 weeks too long. And it’s been way too long since I’ve wrote a random or off topic post. Those are my favorite and I could write those at least daily. So here it is, just whatever is on my mind at the moment…
I’m super stoked about vacation coming up. Seaside Heights, NJ for a week at the end of July. Gonna be epic to say the least. I’m ready to bash on their local Mexican joint. Both times I been out there, it had a different name. First it was The Red Cadillac, then The El Camino. I hope it’s called The Bodydropped Minitruck this year!
Speaking of minitrucks, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Mini Truck Scene website and other areas of that “business”. Designing hats, shirts, stickers, selling DVDs, creating vendor booth stuff, business cards, shooting truck show coverage, writing, keeping up with the social media end of it, etc. It’s exciting because it’s something that I’m passionate about but it is overwhelming with a full-time job, a girlfriend, a house, a pet, vacations, family, friends, etc. Of course almost all of things come first. But I can’t wait until it gets so big that I need help to manage it all.
I’ve also been doing more freelance work. I’m halfway done with a local interior shop’s website, I’m in the works with another custom shop (which could turn into a lot of work), I do some other web work here and there, and just today I started doing some work with a previous employer. Pretty cool to get to work with that team again, and it just goes to show, never burn any bridges. Had I left the company on bad terms, there is no way they would have contacted me again. I’m grateful for all this work coming my way, I just need to make sure I manage all of my priorities and meet all deadlines!
Sam and I have some projects going on around the house. Nothing crazy, but I actually like upgrading/updating the house. I just usually let design or truck work get in the way, or make excuses like I’m tired, or it might rain, or blah, blah, blah. I hate excuses, but I’m pretty good at coming up with them. One of the projects was actually started by my boss and I. We started a stone pathway from our Florida room out to the detached garage. We got a lot accomplished the first day. But a couple weeks later… it still looks the same. Will this be the year I end my procrastination?? I hope!
Since the last post, we have started watching the Jersey Shore reality show. So random, I know. We have been to New Jersey a couple times together, but she has been her whole life. We just all of a sudden got into it, and we are both reality show gurus, so it was only a matter of time before this show took over our lives. Fortunately, it’s on Netflix instant! We killed the first season in a week or so. Now we are halfway through the second season, which for some reason, is in Miami. Anyways, we love to watch drama. And this show delivers. Plus they have some pretty awesome lingo that we use from time to time. I’m grenade free for life!!
Well, I’m about to pass out. Plus I live in a house with no AC. Ya, I know. Well, we do have a window unit in our room, so at least we sleep comfortably. So off to that room I go. I know this post is pointless and is totally off the wall, but sometimes I just need an outlet to vent my daily stresses, frustrations, thoughts, and whatever else I can think of. I hope you have a badass Fourth of July party sometime on this long weekend. And check back for more posts coming soon. I promise I’ll write a ton more. Helpful posts, and some random ones too. Thanks you awesome readers! Feel free to comment if you want. I write back! Later!
