Movies that Define Us

Posted by Shane

We all have our ways of getting to know ourself better or to understand the more subtleties of life itself. My niche (like Baseball… a game of tendencies and situations) is movies. I can look at all the movies I own and look back to see why I liked them and also on what they all mean to me.

For some people its music. For other’s its books. And for even some people they find themselves in TV. No matter what we cling on to its something that defines us and tells others what type of person we are.

Tonight I came back from Going the Distance. A movie I highly recommended. Because it’s not about the time spent with the other person, it’s about going the distance to make it work out no matter what.

I am moving out of my apartment in NY for a couple of reasons. The first one is that I am not here as much now with my internship with Best Buy in Minnesota. So why pay for an apartment when I am never here? Anyway while I was going through things to move out (minus clothes which they are all now packed in the car) I realized I had collected a lot of odd computer equipment over the years and today I went through it all and sorted what I wanted to keep and what was to throw away. This doesn’t count the stuff that I know is already at mom’s that I am already keeping.

The criteria for keeping it has to follow certain guidelines:

  • Could it contain private information?
  • Does this serve a purpose with the current technology trend?
  • Is it working in a state that I would use it on a daily basis?

If any one of these questions were answered ‘yes’, then I kept it. If not… well… it saw the dump.

A Year Long Semi-Sabbatical

Posted by Shane

Since last November, I been wanting to accomplish my goals in life and I tried to do it while maintaining my responsibilities to the online community in which I adore being part of. With that said though it’s been 7 months since then and I am no where close to accomplishing my goals due to the fact my current job had a wacky work schedule, which has now pretty much normalized since I been up here in Minnesota, but still very crazy indeed. There are sacrifices I need to make in order for the goals to happen.

I can say right off the bat that I am not leaving the WordPress Core Contributor Group, I am just making adjustments to my other commitments that are the real slow downs in my goals.

My week in NY

Posted by Shane

I been in NY for a little over a week now and it’s going to come to a quick end tomorrow when I fly back to MN for work. (The time I have to be ready for my ride in the morning is at 4:20am tomorrow. ugh). In any case I have had a great time, and as you see from my posts this past week I was able to do a lot. But it seems as always, what I set out to do this week didn’t happen.
