Dreaming of brilliant blue sky over a sea of green forests.
Drifting with the warm wind blowing through fields of golden grain.
Rays of golden sun drift through puffy white clouds.

As I drift along I ponder if the blue I see the same blue you see?
Are the warm memory's I have, invoke the same feelings for you?
Is what I look and long for the same that you look and long for?

The world I see is different from the world you see.
Can two people see the world similar enough to want to drift together?

Will the wind ever blow us onto the same course?
Will I ever know who you are?

Im Learning....

Well it has been a while, I am most of the way through the first semester, and have gotten second semester planed out.

Still trying to figure out if I am going to look for a summer job, or go to summer school.

If I do summer school, then I might be able to shave a year off the program, but I won't have any income over the summer.  It is a matter of how fast I burn my savings paying for this, I think I have enough to do the 4 years, But it could be close.  I need to get off my but and apply for student loans.

Classes are going good, and I am actually enjoying English class more than I thought I would.  Studying Martian Luther King Jr. essay "A Letter From Birmingham Jair" has inspired me to start writing a novel.  I am about 80k words in now and the Urban Fantasy novels should be about 90k -  100k words.

All told school is appealing to me, and I am doing good grades wise.

The Future

Well I am now moved into my parents basement. I am living the myth, 40 year old in there parents basement.

The reason, I am taking advantage of the family tradition of living for free while going to school.

Yep back to university for me in the fall for a Bsci in Computer Science. Paid my tuition yesterday and am prepping a borrowed laptop (thanks Heather and Mike).

Still waiting to see if i can get advance credit for the intro to computers classes.. If so then I will add a forth class in the 200's other wise it is time to learn how to program again in java.

Probably going down to Heritage days tomorrow, thank god the city fogged for Mosquito's.

Escape from L.V.

Monday i pack the u-haul and move back to Canada. Vegas is cool but VERY F-in hot, if you know what i mean.

The job just hasn't worked out, and I have needed to change my life.  So come fall I am enrolled to go to Uni and do a Bsc in computer science.  Not sure if I want to reenter the games industry when I am done or not.  At one point it was a dream, but the dream has died and withered.

As a programmer I just did not have enough creative input into the games. I kept seeing designs that I could see where not fun, but no one would listen.  When I put something that I knew was fun, I would catch crap for doing it without asking, and praise since it was so good.

But if I asked ahead of time I would be told that was dumb, it wears you down after a while. Makes you depressed, and do sloppy work.

Part of what was wrong with this job in Las Vegas that I know what i know, but lack the theoretical and formal education.  My years of experience has surpassed my knowledge, i am expected to know things I have never done before because I have lots of experience. 

So off to get the missing knowledge, and being near family will be nice.

PS. miss Cara also...

Long time...

Wow it has been a while since I posted..

Yesterday I rented a car and headed out to the hoover dam. Everyone has been telling me that I needed to do the dam tour. Unfortunately the dam tour wasn't running because the elevator was broke... :(

Las Vegas 2012-8135

So the dam took allot less time that I expected. So i figured out how to get my GPS to find the right red rock canyon (there is one near Reno also) and headed there. It looks like a area i will be going back to a few time. There is allot of easy - moderate trails to hike.

Didn't have good foot wear yesterday so I just drove the scenic drive.

Las Vegas 2012-8268

I have some work to do at work, then I am going to head back to red rock for about 5:00 ish. The park is open until 8:00 pm today, and sunset is about 7:00 pm today :)

Hopefully get some nice sunset photos, and a bit of hiking prior to that to see the petro glyphs.

More pics of what I saw including some nice steel flowers.. and a few pics of my new digs.

Vegas baby! VEGAS!

Well I am moved to Vegas, the stuff will hopefully be picked up today and arrive some time in the second half of the month.

the apartment complex I am living in is allot like a hotel... or at lest it has that feel, a workout room, pool, spa, with a nice view of the mountains. The lot next door is a solar farm so there is a nice view across it to the mountains :)

Today is also the first day of work, got the first day jitters.

So here is hoping for a good day 1.

PS. Photos coming soon(tm)
