Hell Week Begins- 9/24/17

I start another inventory week at work and I offer my thoughts on the pilot episode of Star Trek: Discovery.

A Year of Progress and a Look Ahead

I have decided that as of today, I am going to start breaking down some of the newer segments of my hour-long series into shorter vlogs. I am doing this for two reasons: 1) To give viewers an alternative to watching the hour-long episodes all the way through and 2) To help expand my video count on my channel. However, I intend to continue doing the hour-long episodes every Tuesday because thanks to the fact that I am done with college for the time being, I find that doing the episodes are much easier primarily due to my work schedule for which I am off on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

First up: A look back at how 2015 went for me and a look ahead at 2016.

Flood!

Here is a little rant about Mother Nature’s latest fit and how Herkimer as well as the rest of the Mohawk Valley have endured days of rain which led to enormous flooding.

I also managed to snap a couple pics of the disaster scene as well.

Housesitter

I figure I’d use this time to get back into the swing of things here on this blog. I have been so preoccupied with stuff the last few weeks that I haven’t really been up to date on the blog as much as I should be but since I am on my first vacation from work for the year, this couldn’t be at a better time. So here we go.

For starters, even as I post this, I just want to let you know that I am not in H-town this weekend. I left Thursday night because I have to housesit for my folks for the weekend and they live in an area where there are no cell phone towers (which renders my phone useless so I can’t call or text or use the mobile web) and the Internet at their house is a dial-up connection which is pretty slow and not compatible with most sites, including YouTube and unfortunately Twitter. However, I can still check email, go on Facebook, answer questions on Formspring and of course do this blog.

Basically, all I had to do this weekend was take care of their animals, specifically dogs, cats, and horses. But other than that, there isn’t really too much I can do except watch movies and go for a walk down the road. My only problem is that it’s too quiet around here. I don’t think that I could ever live in an isolated area like this because it would be like solitary confinement. I’d go completely nuts. I miss H-town, I miss high-speed Internet, I miss my phone.

And as I write this, today is my last full day of housesitting before I return to civilization tomorrow afternoon. However, I am still on vacation from work until July 17 and I have already set my next vacation for the fourth week in August (the 19th through the 27th) because that week is the week that I start college at HCCC. It was probably a good idea that I decided to take off that week so that way in addition to adjusting to life as a college student, I would not be burdened with going to work that week as well. I have just added HCCC as my college on Facebook even though I don’t start for another month.

But anyway, since I am on vacation this week, I figure I’d start doing a little catching up on this blog because I have been a little behind, especially with the fact that I’m still operating at the library and I have had a whole slew of outside distractions. I also haven’t been able to do YouTube videos in a month because of the fact that the computer I use to edit my videos lost its sound. I was barely able to get the last episode of TAOB up from the Boxing Hall of Fame ceremony. Here is where I am going to start to get things back in order.
