Things I learned in 2012

First of all, this has easily been the worst year of my life.  Unwanted changes.  A lost marriage.  Shitty news.  Blah!  This year sucked!

But, I learned some things.  Here are the top 10 lessons I am taking away from 2012.

Don't take anything for granted.  Ever.  When you do, that's when you will lose it. Friends are priceless.  When you need them, you quickly learn who you can trust most. It doesn't matter how lame my jokes are, my son thinks I am the funniest person in the world and that makes me happy!It doesn't matter how funny I son is funnier.  The stuff that comes out of that kids mouth would make Judge Judy laugh. Life isn't fair.  People aren't fair.  What's important is what you do about it. Friends can be closer than family.  Seattle CAN have a sports franchise to get excited about!  GO SEAHAWKS!!!Real books are better than e-books. Running sucks, but it can improve your mood. Life is amazing.  I am anxious for 2013.  I am starting a ne…

So, now what?

A little about me for those who don't know me or those who have forgotten.

I am a dude.  Meaning I am not a chick. 

I like politics and will probably talk about them frequently.  If you're looking for a Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow type, you won't find that person here, though.  I am more of a...ummm...well, I can't even think of who I am.  I am a right leaning moderate.  I support both gay rights and gun rights.  I oppose both abortion and the death penalty.  I believe in less government, but in enough government to help our citizens who need it...but, only to help them get back on their feet, not provide for them forever.

I am a Catholic...but, I am a very "American" Catholic.  I get pissed when the Church implies that I am going to hell because I think gay people are A-Okay and loved by God just as much as me.  Maybe even more so.  I think priest should be allowed to marry and I think women should be allowed to be ordained.

I am a dad and I suspect th…

Upward and Onward

Many moons ago, I kept a personal anonymous blog.  I used it as a venting place.  Could have been politics, religion, entertainment, Harry Potter, Lost, morning commute...basically, anything that I wanted to talk about.

I am finding the urge to do that, again.  However...I also want to get back to blogging about life, like I did a bit in this blog.  So...I am changing this page up a little.  I am giving it a new name, a new address, and a new feel.

For anyone who wants to see mostly pictures of Desi, I recommend you find me on Facebook.  I will still put them here.  But, no longer as a spot to simply put pictures.  I am using Facebook and Skydrive for that.  This will officially be my blogging page.

Everything is 100% me.  Nothing I post is from Microsoft or represents the company or brands I work for.  HOWEVER...I may occasionally post about things relevant to what I do!  I will likely keep my recruiting/HR related posts regulated to Fistful of Talent.  Here, however...I may take …

Happy New Year from Winnie the Pooh, Ninja Assassin!

Whoa...this is an awesome post title that I have had saved for over a year.  Wish I remembered what the content was.

This blog needs a reboot

Stay tuned.  Many life changes and a renewed desire to blog more.  Going to make this my all up go to page for everything.  Still parenting adventures.  But, also my opinionated rants and raves about just about anything I can think of. 

New title coming.  New URL as well.
