This Just In: This Blog Has Been Updated

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated, but here we are.


This was a great month for work. Adecco (Modis) has made me permanent at the company. Now I get benefits and healthcare….wooo! It has been a few years on the healthcare, but my mom is hyped about it.

I have cut my hours at Dos Gatos to only working ArtWalk. I love this job, but the late hours were killing me. J and Joy really have been some of the most understanding/awesome bosses I’ve ever worked with and J taught me quite a bit about the inner workings of a bar and I bet I barely scratched the surface. J if you happen to read this, thank you for giving me the chance to work for you and Joy. I truly appreciate it.

On another note, women think chivalry is dead, but I think a general respect for your fellow man/woman is just in the gutter now-a-days. Especially in respects to the bro code….read it….live by it. No one ever went wrong by giving somebody respect. It’s kind of like not drinking (J don’t read this): No one has ever said man I was so sober last night that me and my buddy got into a fight, spent a night in jail, and I have the worst headache!


This week I might be going to Vampire Weekend with Beach House opening for them, but I will def. be seeing the Flaming Lips on Friday at the St. Augustine Amphitheater though with my very amazing woman. Please see picture above for an amazing shot of what’s to come.

From the evening of 20th until late the 24th will be my Smoky Trip Do Over. It’s going to be cold, but I can’t wait. I’m scared, nervous and excited all at once. I bought the “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” , the 1974 philosophical novel, to keep me company. If you don’t know anything about the book it’s not what it seems.

The next week for Halloween I will be visiting my little sister up in Brooklyn. I’m very excited to see my sister operating on her own and for her and I to get some time together. It’s been way too long. She has a speakeasy she wants to take me too…..way to go sis!

Upcoming November:
Movember starts Nov. 1 with the Shaving Party at Dos Gatos. Get your baby face on and let your upper lip know it won’t be cold for too long….there’s a stache on its way. This is the same event I did last year as well to help raise money for prostate and testicular cancer. Join me!

Later that month I will be running Thanksgiving Outback Classic Half Marathon and will be volunteering with Sam at a soup kitchen (not sure which one) later that day…..

It should all be a great time. I have to say this has easily been a great year and appreciate all my friends for helping make it happen.

Lots of Great Change

Carrying change in your pocket really sucks…unless its quarters. I don’t mind carrying  quarters becaues you can put them in a parking meter, give them to a bum or do like a super wish in a wishing well.

Well lets just say that I’m carrying a fistful of quarters at the moment. (speaking of which, if you have a chance go rent, watch, download King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters….it’s an awesome movie)

I was laid off from my accounting job on 4/15 (end of tax) season, but I was super excited about it. I headed up to the Smokey National Park that day to go backpacking. It was wonderful, but my friend who came along decided he didn’t really want to hike and so we cut the trip really short and hiked about 8 miles instead of the original 30. Lame, but still a great time.

I’m going to go again, but next on my motorcycle and by myself!

As soon as I got back from the trip (no joke I mean that night) I got a job as a barback at one of the slickest bars in Jacksonville (Dos Gatos) and started the very next night. Then about 5 days later I had an interview with Adecco/MPS group (they’re in the giant Modis (they are modis actually) building downtown) and I landed a job with them the very next day writing proposals for their Strategic Sales Department.

The sweetest part of it all is that because they ran out of cubicles they gave me an office on the 9th floor the overlooks the The Jacksonville Landing and the Main St. bridge….I don’t have it for too long, but it’s sweet for now.

This is my view, but I’m 9th floor and this from around the 25th.

Next week I move into 11E. I’m so excited. I’ve honestly toured that place the last 5 times I’ve had to move, but for some reason or another it didn’t make sense for me to go there. Now I don’t have a gas bill so I can afford it….wooo!

I don’t want to come off as if I’m bragging. I’m just excited to be in two jobs I really like and moving to a place that should be pretty cool.  My Adecco job is temp to perm at the moment so I could be let go and my Dos Gatos job in essentially a dishwashing job, but I don’t care….I’m really enjoying both at the moment.

So, I hope to see a ton of my friends Downtown more often (that means Sarah, Sean and Karen….because you guys may be the only people who read this thing….and I only included Sean in this list because he is updated by Sarah 🙂
