Yes I have been completely MIA...work and school have taken over my life. Recently, I moved back to NORCAL and I am not loving it at all. The last job I tried out was a total WTF is this and why is the work environment so bad!, but I am still busy working for Arden and Icon. For those of you that do not know, my job in general is to make sure fragrances stay at the top 20 each week in all Northern California Macy's stores and exhaust all means to maintain whether it be recruiting for more sellers or changing marketing selling tactics for the brand. (Brands include Juicy, Mariah Carey, Guess, John Varvatos, White Diamonds)
I miss poker also. I have a strong dislike for FTP now so I have been dabbling in Stars, so maybe I will be back, not likely though because I seem to get horrible connection with that site. Sorry peeps, from here on out, nothing about poker, in case you were hoping to read about opinions on poker. The rest of the blog is related to ME...and some sci-fi.
Other than that, my life is completely crazy, but I want a drastic change soon. I am thinking about going back for law school, but I don't know about that either. (and no I do not want to defend or prosecute murderers or anything like that. I like real estate and I want to do transactions or sue)
Yesterday I almost got into an accident, but karma was on my that day! I was in the lane next to the fast lane and to the right of me, the car was either going way to fast or didn't want to let another car merge in front of him, it slammed right into the merging car and then the merging car hit the car in front of it (which was stopped bc of traffic)
It was super crazy because my sister was like "go! and I didn't bc the car in front of me was a chronic braker, but if I did, my car would of been a couple inches closer to the original car and they would have included me into the accident. It was beyond crazy because you usually with accidents you here the SCREEECH, boom! (dane coke with the dodge and driveway joke) but this time it was just a crunch of metals and me hoping that I could get away before I get slammed into.
Stuff like that ALWAYS happens to me. I always seem to be saved "a second" before something. That day my few seconds before was my constant habit of walking out the door, locking it, getting in my car, then going back in to go to the bathroom. I know I am a very obsessive compulsive.
I have been watching V after work and I think I am addicted to it. The idea of it is shockingly what I have always wondered about. It is crazy, but what if that happened tomorrow?? Like, BAM, here we are, conspiracy theory people you are not crazy! =)
I have been hearing buzzes about Firefly for a few years, but I was never interested until I read the wiki on it. It instantly captured me...I am debating on whether to get the box set or watch it online where other sites have slanged it out. If you have seen it, let me know! Here's the summary from wiki to get a little idea of what I like:
The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a "Firefly-class" spaceship. The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things". The show explores the lives of people who fought on the losing side of a civil war who now make a living on the outskirts of the society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In addition, it is a future where the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures as well. According to Whedon's vision, "nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today."
I love the whole fusion idea of the two cultures and the whole 2517 date. I want to watch it super bad, but I don't want it to be over since there is only one season. That sucks!
It's like the show Earth 2 that I am watching online. It came out when I was busy making films and playing the clarinet back in HS, so it is a brand new show to me even if it is kinda out dated. The point is, there was only ONE season and only about 20 something episodes. I can't get myself to watch the last few because it will be OVER! =(
Has anyone seen that new Nike Tiger commercial?? Wow is all I can say...just don't!
Oh! One thing about poker, I have been watching Poker After Dark on youtube and I think I am beginning to love Annette Obrestad. It is crazy to know that she has won a 180-person tournament without looking at her whole cards!!
