The Weekend came and went. Mostly used it to run errands then fell into a House of Cards coma. I have to admit, that series is so perfect, if Netflix keeps this up, they’ll change the way viewers consume TV shows all across the board. I will say, they might have gone a bit too global this time around. I understand Underwood’s the President and all, but I dunno, I figure there should be more in-fighting with the way he got his seat.

“If we told the truth, imagine what the voters would think.” – Frank Underwood

That line is so beautiful.

A Bit More Restless Than Most Nights

On February 21, 2015, in Personal Revelations, by Adelard

Tonight I’m a bit more restless than most nights. Moving into the city is a bit more surreal that I realized. Living out in the suburbs the quietness is your friend, but here… Nothing is ever quiet. I guess I just have to get used to it. But I doubt that’s the reason I’m awake.

Every now and then I have flashbacks of people I used to know, wonder where they’re at, and whatever became of them. I don’t know why, or what I would tell them, just want to know what if they’re all right. I’ve been searching for one friend for a while now, Jamie, haven’t seen or heard from her in years, over a decade. Everyone else I’ve spotted, and found out what became of them, but her… nada, literally nada. It’s like she disappeared from the earth as soon as we lost touch. I do hope I see her one day in the future…

During these late night, I start looking at some of the scars I’ve accumulated throughout this venture… still wondering if it was all worth it. Then there are the ones that aren’t physical, the ones that I’ll have to battle mentally for the rest of my life… We’ll see where this road takes me…

So I begin A New

On February 18, 2015, in Personal Revelations, by Adelard

It’s been a while since I updated this blog, but I figured I might as well let the world know what I’m up to.

One of the hardest things to do is leave something you created, but I had to leave Karma Snack to keep my balance. I realized I didn’t want to do SEO, client work, or anything that involved internet marketing for others.

Over the near 2 years since I updated this blog, I’ve got through some interest time period. It was as if I was on a fog laden journey ahead, with no real end goal in sight. I bounced from project to project, idea to idea, till I eventually started going back to doing the thing I was most passionate about, coding. I love coding, cause there is a zen aspect to it. It’s you versus yourself in a mental battle to create something and have it functioning properly.

So now I’m back doing the thing I love, programming for projects which have taken me to some interesting places around the world and back again. One thing I will miss is Miami. There are some ‘interesting’ characters to say the least, but overall I’ve left a lot of friends and friendships grew apart as the years strained the connections. I’ll miss Miami, but I figure a new city, a new venture – there is something about the Gotham energy that you can’t find anywhere else… Feels good to begin a new. I still have my business partner down there so I’m down there every now and then, but I had to start a new journey in a city.

Hopefully in the coming days, weeks, I’ll be writing a bit more and programming, and going over some marketing concepts, which I still love – there was just something about the SEO way that didn’t quite fit with what I wanted our of marketing, there needs to be more creativity, more energy, with SEO, it’s like you’re facing one opponent Google, and it’s a tiring never ending battle – that’s just not for me I guess. What I want to do is make a difference by making a process easier for end users, so I’m taking up several User Experience courses, and reading as many guides as possible to take my game to the next level. If there is anything worthwhile, I’ll definitely share it, and hopefully I can expand upon ideas to help anyone reading.

Till Next Time,

– Adelard
