What's the matter with me?

I just don't blog anymore!

Please bear with me. To me this blog is like that old treadmill that sits in your house, you see it everyday knowing you should get on it. This is how I practice writing for that book that I will write someday....But, I don't like to write just about myself and my boring life, mostly because:

1) Nobody Cares
2) I feel uncomfortable sharing stuff about my job.
3) Nobody Cares
4) Personal stuff can always come back and get you.
5) Did I mention that nobody cares?

I don't think my life is boring. But I don't think I have the talent to narrate mundane events in a way that would make people want to read it.

I would like to write about the things i am passionate about, but, I am such a lazy bastard these days, by the time I get back from work I am so spent, I don't feel like taking the time to write on my blog. But, out of respect for the blogsphere, I will not quit. I will keep going, I will make the effort to bring you what I think is good.

So, you may ask...what are you passionate about? Well, I am glad you asked yourself that question my dear reader, because, I am about to tell you.

These are the things I like to talk about:

Software Engineering.

This is a fascinating subject, but, I don't feel qualified enough to write about this subject yet, I am too new and anything I write would be stolen from someone else. Plus...who else cares? (that reads this blog anyway)


I somehow manage to piss conservatives and liberals the same, they both think I belong to the opposite side, and they may be right, because I am neither of them...
anyway, this topic will make me a bunch of enemies, do I really want that?

So I don't know. I am having a blogger crisis.

What I'll do today, is, point you to some interesting things I saw on the internet today:

Some interesting things I saw on the internet Today

I read a pretty good debate between best-selling atheist Sam Harris and pro-religion blogger Andrew Sullivan, who, I might add, wrote me an email one day...(OMG!)

Also, today I learn where the term Cancer came from.

I read a great story today (after work, of course) The Last Question, by Isaac Asimov, the author of I, Robot. Great stuff!

So, that's all for now, I have 30 pages left on The Brother's Karamazov, so I want to finish that tonight.

Working for Motorola

Last week I started my new job as a Software Engineer and as you can imagine it's been an exiting ride. I don't feel as lost as I did when I started interning, after all, I am still here in Fl, a familiar place, with a bunch of FAU friends, My Team is cool, they have a Super Smart dude that's showing me the ropes. I have a lot to learn, I thought writing code will be enough, but I have to know how Radios and Cellulars work, I mean, down to the last detail. Not to mention reading hundreds of documents, specs, data sheets and such. The first thing I did was read the Marketing Requirements Doc and then sign up for a bunch of Motorola classes. My hands are full and I haven't written a line of code yet.

The Family is Good

One more baby coming! crazy good times.


I don't know how I am going to do my Masters, I am so tired when I get home from work, that's because I am now going to the gym. I gained a lot weight over the Christmas break (I wonder why) and I am so out of shape. My first day at the Gym I joined a group doing spinning bikes, they were all older ladies, so i was like, oh easy, I'll warm up with them, 15 minutes later I was huffing and puffing, seconds away from passing out, I couldn't even hide it. I bet the old ladies were laughing at me. But, I'll be OK. Today I was doing better. I feel like back in the Corps, when we used to PT in the morning before working.

So that's life these days, there are a bunch of books that I want to read, but I haven't finished reading the Brothers Karamazov just yet. I'll get there.

that is all.

A good friend of mine gave me great words of advice today:

"Life is an amazing thing, more amazing the more conscious you become"

I couldn't agree more. So I am sharing it with you.

Thank you.

Happy New Year.

That is all.
