Right now, just trying to get by on what little bread crumbs I have left from a previous life as an engineer. I know one's career takes twists and turns, and mine has had many so far in my 10 years. I'm tired. I'm tired of being sick, I'm tired of being alone, and I'm tired of watching my money disappear faster than you can say "gone". I'm hoping this blog will allow me to vent some and have some fun in the mean time.

“NI” is now “NI”

For starters, I’ll introduce myself. I have worked at various companies over the last 10 years since finishing my Master’s degree in electrical engineering. Around the time I was graduating with my Bachelors, I started working in a Biology lab, and eventually, I got to get dirty with LabView. Back…

When I should have quit, but didn’t.

Back in Maryland, I was busy working away on my tasks, when it started to strike me (pun intended?) that something rather odd was going on outside weather-wise.  There's only one window in the lab I worked in.  By the time I realized it was raining sideways, it was too…

Weighted Blanket

When I was in the Oviedo Medical Center Hospital being wheeled to my hospital room the day before my surgery, the nurse was walking me through the hallways and made a comment.  The color temperature of the fluorescent bulbs in their fixtures was sterile.  I looked paper white.  I haven't…

06:35 < intp> let me think

IRC has played a major role in my life over the past...what...16 years now?  People have come and gone, but at the core of it all, there are a select few who've been around since the early days (including myself, relatively speaking).  I was different back then, in a lot…

Surprised

Well, ... I got my surprise.  Never saw it coming.  No, it wasn't that upgrading from Stretch to Buster broke Lighttpd and ate my Let's encrypt certificates.  Right now it's just not public information.  We'll see how far this goes.  I don't feel very confident about that, but stranger things…

“Add title” (you tell me)

I don't know what it is.  I have a tattoo of a cross on my left arm.  Part of the reason I got it was because, like so many other things, keeping track of my necklaces in the myriad of moving boxes was impossible.  A tattoo is forever; permanently marked…

About regrets

  I don't really regret anything in my life.  Most of my life has not been in my control.  If you don't have control of the things you want or need and you don't get them, regret isn't the word I would use to describe that situation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdQbb3FXSEI This song…

The Pied Piper

I was going to write something here, but I've already forgotten, heh.  It's only been about 1 minute... Well, I'm planning on building a new PC, but I'm unsure of how I want to approach this.  I'd also like to sell my laptop (Dell XPS 15 9560).  The laptop is…
