Welcome to my blog corner/profile page. Feel free to read and post or comment, or whatever it is you kids do nowadays.
29Apr 13And hopefully I'll be staying for awhile this time around.
Well, it has been quite a darn long time since I have logged into the site and posted a blog. So what have I done and where have I been since my last blog post (which was October 19th)?
All in all, things are pretty much the same. Still working at my same place of employment. Only now I work half of my days in the warehouse. The other half is spent in the office working for corporate. At the moment I'm being trained on the deeper aspects of our recieving and inventory system. So far as I know for the time being until they find my replacement, I'm on a trial period. But things have been working out pretty well thus far. No major mistakes, getting in some major over time, and proving myself an invaluable employee. All my hard work is starting to really pay off.
Apart from work, I moved into yet another new home. This time I'm back on my own. I moved into the place roughly over a month ago. Since I moved in though, I've been doing alot of work to get the house feeling like a home. The nice thing is, anything out of my pocket is considered payment towards the rent. So in the long run I get to save some money on the rent, time on waiting for the landlord to hire a contractor to do the work, and it gets done the way I would like it to be done. I've already painted, replaced the basement steps, fixed the kitchen sink, replaced the bathroom sink, and begun waterproofing the basement walls. The basement doesn't necessarily need any real work done to it, but I plan on building another bedroom/storage room and a man-cave/lounge area down there. I've also picked up some nice tile for the basement shower and walls, hardwood laminate for the front foyer, and carpet for various rooms; including the basement (most of it is being used as area rugs or towards the basement rennovations). All housework aside, I've been spending my time in the new place trying to settle in. I just recently got the internet and cable turned on, which is great because I was starting to get an itch for some online competition in a few games and tired of watching the same old movies.
Unfortunately though, even with the internet I still have limited access to it outside of online console gaming. Mainly becuase I still haven't gone out and purchased a computer of my own. Since my laptop died back in around August. I was planning on picking one up around Black Friday but I spent the money I saved up on getting a new car (used, but new for me) and getting into the new place (and everything that accompanies a new move; furniture and home living accessories. I just wanted to be out on my own again. A grown man at the age of 25 shouldn't be living at home with his parents if he can afford to be out on his own), and Christmas gift shopping. So after spending all of that money I've been fairly broke. I am however, really intending to purchase a new computer this year with my tax return funds.
As for my car; man do I love it. I had gone to one of the local car lots several times for nearly three weeks straight. Now, I had also been going to a few other places as well, but my family has history with the owner of this one particular lot. Since they've done so much business with him in the past, I figured he might be able to even cut me a deal. Every time I went I tested out a different vehicle and just couldn't find something I liked. And everytime he told me to come back every few days to see if he had anything new on the lot. Then after two weeks he told me he would have something coming in soon that he was sure would catch my eye. So I kept checking and still nothing. Finally, at the end of the third week I came across her, and man was he right. I got in, checked everything out. Checked under the hood and under the body, and she was a solid car. Took it out for a test drive and had to have it. I even had my brother and my grandfather take it out to see what they had thought. They both agreed. Originally he wanted 2,900 for the car, plus tax and title. I drove off the lot with the car for 2,500, plus tax and title. In the end it cost me around 2,700 dollars. And what kind of car did I buy? A mint 1997 Nissan 200SX SE.
That's about it. No relationship at the moment. Game here and there. If I can afford to, I go out to enjoy a cold brew and company on the weekends, or I invite people over to the new place. Mainly working and getting my home together.
So until I get a chance to log in again... see you when I see you.
Busy. Working 40+ hours a week. Recently got a raise and have been practically training and babysitting a crew of new people and people I've been working with there for nearly the past two years. To say the least, my job has been interesting.
Apart from wasting my days away in a warehouse, I've been doing alot around the house. In the coming weeks I should have the basement of our home completed. New walls, floors, electrical, etc. The only thing I won't get finished anytime soon is the bathroom. Materials can be expensive and drafting up a definite plan of how we want to lay it out is going to take some time. We've also been trying to get the garage and the yard in order before the weather really changes up.
So with all of the house chores and working a steady job, what do I get to do in my free time? I might go out here and there. Might game from time to time. But I've been so caught up in my artwork as of late I haven't really found time for anything else. And that's mainly because I got an offer recently to put my art on exhibit for a local gallery. I'm pretty stoked about this because I've never thought about doing it before; let alone did I ever think it was good enough to put up for sale in a gallery. So being as self conscious as I am about my personal musings put to canvas; I've been trying to step my game up. I've been experimenting with new mediums I've never tried out before, and I'm pretty interested in seeing what I can come up with. So far, so good. I hope things go really well. All of the other parties involved seem really excited about having me, so I feel like I'm being gased up a bit. We'll see in the coming weeks. I really want this to work out because I feel like I've been in a rut as of late.
Well that's about all for this one. See you around when I can.
