It’s been a really, really, really long time since I left tumblr. Well over 2 years - so much has changed (for the better I hope). Tumblr was even acquired by Yahoo during this time. I return with the hope that I am now a better person, wiser, kinder, matured and maybe just a tad more successful. I still have so much to learn, to accomplish, with a long road ahead. That being said - here’s a new post:

We all have our criticisms (mostly negative) towards GE. From it’s knowingly flawed design of the Fukushima reactors, to multiple violations of ethics and environmental policies - the list goes on and on, even back to when they were one of the first 12 on the Dow Jones. But, just put that aside for 1 minute and forget that this ad has anything to do with GE. Watch it… and let it sink in.

Ideas are very scary, especially when you make the crazy decision to turn them into a reality. Don’t be afraid to be different and don’t be intimidated by others. You WILL fail; plain and simple. You WILL also realize the journey is much more difficult than you expected it to be; regardless of how much you’ve prepared for it. How else are you going to learn? Stay positive, support the people around you and listen to them. Be grateful that they are still with you through the highs and lows. Learn from your mistakes and keep pushing forward, but never forget to be kind and never lose your sense of humanity. And always keep in mind that every rejection you receive gets you another step closer to success. Now I’m not speaking from the summit of success; this is just my outlook so far on my way up, just like everyone else.

Mass Effect: 9.2/10*, Universal Acclaim

Mass Effect II: 9.6/10*, Universal Acclaim

Mass Effect III: 9.5/10*, Universal Acclaim

I’m going to say this is probably the BEST RPG trilogy… ever. I know, I know, there’s the Fallout series, The God of War Trilogy, Assassin’s Creed, Gears of War, and of course D3 is coming out in May. You can’t go wrong with any of them. I’m leaving GTA and Elder Scrolls out because they’ve gone past 3 games. Sorry if I left any out, but feel free to remind me!

But, for me, I’ll take Mass Effect.

The cinematic feel of the trilogy was off the charts, you actually got to know all the characters you’ve been working with for the last 4.5 years. From becoming the first human spectre, to working with cerebrus and then taking Earth back. I enjoyed my team so much, I had to replay Mass Effect II just to earn the “No Man Left Behind” achievement, all of them then survived, haha. It’s kind of sad knowing that this might be the final game of an epic journey spanning almost 5 years. Bioware is hands down, tummies out, the best game developer right now.

This is a moment I will cherish forever. Never would I have thought I’d be able to sit down and chat with the mayor of San Francisco over coffee. Well at least not at this age, I figured I would get that chance when I got older, since I was relatively young compared to most folks he sees regularly. But, I’m glad I was able to get to know him, his background, his thoughts on my opinions pertaining to life and the future of San Francisco. He is extremely eloquent and detailed in his answers. I didn’t have to elaborate or ask the same question twice. But, as much as I would like to praise his greatness, I need to create my own legacy as well. Thank you Mayor Ed Lee. 

This is another step in my journey of a thousand miles.

When these nba “basketball" commercials came out last year… I thought they all were hilarious.

Then they showed this MJ one… and you’ll just have to see it.

If you followed his career, you’ll definitely understand how I feel about it.

I think it was moments like these that in my opinion really made him the G.O.A.T.

It’s kind of crazy how we all grew up loving our own teams, but we always made an exception for Michael.
