Life as I know it.
entry by RevSM

Hey everybody, I finally decided to start one of these things. It comes at a time when I've got the most amount of free time on my hands yet I find myself being the laziest I've been in a long time. Maybe being without a job naturally does that to you. Don’t get me wrong though, I have been actively looking for a job since day one but everything else has kinda stopped where I left it.

I would use this time to do some more exploring but just last week one of the most horrible things I could think of next to getting arrested happened to me. I went to a movie with a friend and he drove. I enjoyed the movie just fine (Hero) but when we came out I was the first to notice that my friend’s passenger side window was not in the place we left it. That’s right, it was all over the passenger seat, floor and ground. Before the show I made sure to grab my camera bag like I always do because you never have a camera when you see something interesting to take a picture of. I knew it was gone but checked the floorboard anyways. The only things he took were my camera bag and some of my friends dirty clothes in the back seat. WTF.

We filed a police report and told the management about what happened even though the likelihood of something ever coming of it is slim to none. When we went to the management they told us they just recently installed a security camera and believe it or not we actually got to watch the crime take place.

Wow. What shitty luck I’ve had lately.

On another note maybe I have a little good luck coming my way. Totally unrelated to what we know about the UE reality TV show to be on the Discovery Channel, I was recently contacted by a producer interested in doing something similar. So far he is in the early, early stages – from the sound of it, just an idea stage. So far I have been very wary of the whole thing trying to ensure against some kind of scam. I know almost everyone has an opinion about pros and cons of a UE based reality TV show but if I can at least help to steer this in the right direction I will do the best I can. I don’t have a whole lot of information yet but hope to get more soon. I will try to update this the more info I get. I also want to thank the people whom I chatted with last week about this though I regretfully don’t remember who it was. I know if you’re interested you will want to know more but please be patient, I don’t want to give away to much yet.

We’ll aside from that, the only other thing is that now since I’m without a camera I’ll be looking for a new one. But before I can do that I really need a source of income. Gha! Maybe I’ll actually update my site sometime. I was almost finished with resizing pictures for an update at work when I stopped having a work. That kinda pisses me off too. Oh well, I’m beginning to think loosing that job was for the best. I really did hate that place anyways. Bastards.

Sucks about your camera. Good luck finding a job man.

Thanks Noah. Well, now I have a job so things are looking up. You know, I've thought before when I was laid off from another job, "Maybe it’s for the best - maybe I'll find something better." Last time I got pretty much the same deal. This time, however, I think might be different. Especially since I’ll be making a butt-load more money. The only problem is that it might last less than 2 months. Nothing has been said officially but several have hinted that it has the potential to be more long term. If that’s the case I might be able to buy a really nice camera to replace the stolen one. I’ve been looking and really, really like the Sony DSC F828. It has all the features I want plus more – but it also just feels nice in my hand. I guess we shall see.
