The Catch Up

Ugh. I really need to stop procrastinating on making blog posts. Lots of stuff has happened since my last update, and now I wish I posted each time those events were happening while it was all fresh in my head. Oh well, the only pictures and videos I have are of my San Francisco trip, that’s good enough I guess. Anyways, here’s what happened to me so far.

In August, I was in Jerry’s wedding. Everything went perfect… Well, everything except for ONE thing. I’m being really “biased” on this because it had to do with me. You see I was given the task of the “Best Man Speech” without being the Best Man. About 2 weeks before the wedding I would jot down different ideas and whatnot. Fast forward to the actual wedding, I had a bunch of scribbled up notes, and in the heat of the moment I said “Fuck it” and winged the whole thing. If you asked me how it went, the replay in my head has me standing for 10 minutes saying “Uhhhh”. I’m probably hella judging it really harshly, I bet it’s really not ALL that bad… You know what? Scratch that, my speech hella sucked. If you’re ever in that position please prepare WAY ahead of time. Well at least I can say the speech I gave qualified as an item on my Bucket List. I’ll go ahead and cross off “Address a speech to at least a hundred people”. It didn’t have to be a good speech, just A speech haha. (There is a video of my speech, and NO, I’m not going to post it.)

In late October my employment status changed from Temp to being hired on full-time. One thing that I really love about the place is the co-workers. I’m surrounded by a bunch of like-minded nerds and it really makes working enjoyable.

In November, I went to the Bay Area. I was supposed to attend a surprise Birthday party for an elderly Aunt but there was a change of plans, and I didn’t get to go but something else did happen. I got to hit up one of my favorite buffets called Hot Pot City, then walked around the 49ers museum at Levi’s Stadium. Then the next day a bunch of family members came over and we had ourselves an early Thanksgiving. On my last day, got a sandwich from Little Luccas, and then hit up Baker beach then made it back to the my cousin’s house in time to watch the Warriors play/WWE Survivor Series. It was a small yet very awesome trip.

That’s not even all the photos I took. All the pictures from my trip are in the gallery and can be viewed here. Before I go I’d like to say Happy New Year to everyone, and that one of my New Year Resolutions is to travel A LOT. Next post I’ll make a list of places I would like to go, and hell, maybe I’ll even go get my damn passport renewed. Anyways guys, be safe, and don’t treat people like shit. Make this New Year a good one, no matter what. Later.

Another Warehouse, Another Wedding

I’ve only been at this warehouse job for about 3 months and honestly it feels like I’ve been there for 3 years.

The job is very fast paced, and quite repetitive.

My job starts when the workers pull a tech order for me. I unbox the equipment, configure it, repackage it, and then ship it out. Rinse and repeat.

I finally just got my contractor shirt too AND they special ordered the size for me. I got it 4X Tall. Now I don’t have to wear a shirt that’s hella extra wide on me with barely enough length to tuck in.

I like the job. It’s different but still computer related. Also climbing up the career ladder is tough because everyone at the place stays there for a long time and you can only move up when there is room. I think I’m going to be a contractor for a while.

At the end of the month Jerry is getting married, and I’m going to be in the wedding. I don’t know any of the plans like who is doing the bachelor party, and who is doing the speech (rumor has it, I’m supposed to). Yeah, I better go sit down and talk with that guy sometime this week. Also start budgeting some money aside cause cash will be spent in the upcoming weeks.

This was just a small quick update. I was trying to post earlier in the week but my website got infected with malware and I had to clean out the files myself. I have other stories to post too of stuff I’ve done like taking a trip to Phoenix to watch the Giants play the Diamondbacks… I’ll post again soon.

Mid December

Bored as fuck and came across these. Funny as shit. Anyways, I haven’t posted in awhile and acouple of posts before I said I was looking for a job, and I did get one. It’s technically in retail, and it’s only temporary. My main job is still being a contractor. I don’t know what I’m doing for Christmas and or the New Year… Still planning things out. Later.

Reorganizing.

I’m currently reorganizing a lot of things in my life right now. No, I’m not taking a break from anything but just letting you know what I’m up to.

I’m also trying to repair my truck, upgrade my PC, and purchase another lens for my Canon Rebel. I think I’ll knock out the upgrade and get my new lens by next weekend.

Oh and the odds changed to 7-1 from 11-1 for the 49ers to win the Super Bowl. I put down $100, so I should expect $700 in my pocket right after my birthday ;).

Last but not least I’ll be working the next two weeks at night. I’m a night owl anyways so this shouldn’t bother me. I start at 8PM and get out whenever the computers are all hooked up. Awesome.

Feelin’ Like A Million Bucks

I love my job.

It’s the same computer things I’ve been doing ever since I was a little kid except now I get PAID!

My job is so damn fun that sometimes I don’t want to clock out and go home, I’d rather just keep working.

Now that I have a job my workout sessions have come to a complete stop. Team HIIT is still up in the air. It kind of reminds of bands with their “together” status.

On Monday I’m going to be continuing HIIT with the Team or not. I’m also modifying the HIIT program with light weights to exhaust the muscles and liver of glycogen, and then take a walk/jog while my body is in a fat burning mode. Ya dig? Also I’m going to be eating a light breakfast, a light lunch, and then a liquid dinner (most likely a slimfast or similar shake).

I got this..

Lil Break.

I decided to cancel any HIIT this week because I got a new job! Yeah, it’s the tech job I wanted with a bunch of other duties added. It’s just me and my boss and we’re the only ones in the tech department and our duties aren’t just limited to desktop, network, server support. We are The “Everything that plugs in to the wall” Support, can ya believe that?!

Cot damn Army of Two status. And I’m Rios, lol.

Well I gotta get ready for work so I’ll update this ish later.. Oh and before I go I’ll leave you with another courage wolf. This is the Samoan-Ninja signing off.. LAtEZ.

Lights, Camera, Oh Wait.

My 360 gold account expired, and the rental games had to be returned :(. Eminem said it best (although he meant something completely different) “The clock’s run out, time’s up over, blaow. Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity”. I’m hoping the next time I play on an Xbox 360 it’ll be my own :). You know ’cause I’ll have money from that job I’m supposed to have.. Now!!

In the bundle are two wireless controllers, MW2, a headset, a special painted xbox 360 inspired from Modern Warfare 2, and a new 250GB HD. I just need to purchase a wireless adapter separately, no biggie.

So while I wait for the J-O-B to call to “tell me when to go”, I’ll be working on two video projects. Both are currently in development and nowhere near pre-production. The first video is a instructional video with how to poach “something” (it’s a surprise with a twist), it’s going to be short and sweet sick (Well, it depends on how you take it). The other video I don’t want to go into too much detail but it is another instructional video and I might need to recruit some people to help me out on it.

Well, that’s all you can expect for now. When the videos are done they’ll be uploaded to Youtube, and posted here as well (duh). If you don’t know my Youtube Channel you can find the link on the right, it’s underneath the “More Of Me Links”, or you can click here. This is the Samoan-Ninja signing off… LAtEZ.
