It's been a VERY busy 2-3 months at work. I've filled in for absent co-workers, open shift spots, and as an extra body; probably averaging 46-48 hours a week, 6 days a week. Busy, to the point that I forgot to start a blossoming tradition of watching at least 1 horror/thriller movie a day in … Continue reading 31 Days (well, maybe 20…) of Horror
Nah, you don't have to - I just like Roman Reigns' "Acknowledge Me!" promos. 😉 President Biden announced a Student Loan Forgiveness Package: basically, if you make under $125K a year, you get at least $10K forgiven from your loans. There are a few other details and requirements in this package. And, like clockwork, some … Continue reading Louisville… ACKNOWLEDGE ME!!
The 4th of July. Independence Day. The day that most Americans celebrate the founding of our country, and the subsequent freedom from the British Crown, with BBQs, baseball games, and fireworks. It's one of the big "summer party" days. I'm just not feeling it in 2022. https://i.gifer.com/1bzT.gif I wish I had a concrete reason for … Continue reading 4th of July: Not Feeling It
The last 'A 'Borg and a Baritone' post was in September 2019, at the end of the Drum Corps Associates (DCA) season. This is likely just a two-post return. The first post is my return to marching and playing. In 2020, Tiffany (a great HS friend) told me about the Kentucky Marching Pride, a marching … Continue reading “A ‘Borg and a Baritone” Returns (Briefly)!
I have some new readers and followers on WordPress and Facebook, so 'welcome' to you all! While I figure out what I'm going to do this summer, I've decided to post (and, in some cases, re-post) some random facts about me - a "Get To Know Me" post. I have two main nicknames: 'Cyborg' and … Continue reading [Insert Number Of] Facts About Me
It's been a long time since I've made a late-night post, a mental "Night Walk". But I woke up just before 1 AM, it's 2 AM (at the start of this), and I can't fall back asleep. School is finished for the summer, the year, and probably for a few years. So... what's next? I … Continue reading “Night Walks”: Now That School’s Out….
I have had a few days to let everything sink in. Thursday May 4th was a day I will not soon forget! It was cloudy in Louisville but pretty rainy in central and southern Kentucky. Once we got to Bowling Green, the rain was easing up, but still steady. After a few moment with my … Continue reading 25 Years: WKU Commencement Ceremony, Part 2
January 1997, I attended Purdue University (West Lafayette Campus). My first class, I think, was "Intro to Unix"). April 2022, I am attending Western Kentucky University. My last non-Capstone class is "Systems Architecture II", a Linux class. In 2 weeks, barring a disaster, I will finally walk down the aisle and receive a Bachelor's Degree. … Continue reading 25 Years: WKU Commencement Ceremony, Part 1
School I've restarted my Capstone class but decided to not do Code Louisville, this semester. The workload would have been too much. This is my 2nd chance at the Capstone, as I screwed up the deadlines of the last attempt. Wish me luck! Health I am approaching my 12-year anniversary of my heart valve surgery! … Continue reading Is It Already February?!?
It's a new year! It's now up to me to see how the early weeks of 2022 go. One thing I'm going to do differently, compared to past years: I'm not making Resolutions, "Wish Lists", or anything similar, other than a Reading Challenge for Goodreads (I want to read/listen to more than 20 books in … Continue reading Welcome to 2022!
