Night Chronicles

I’m starting night shift tomorrow, thats why I decided to start a series of posts called “The Night Chronicles”.

Let’s how this shift affects me.

Tonigth we had a couple of beers (yes! Just a couple… That’s not fair). I hope to get really drunk next week though.

Knott’s Berry Farm: Silver Bullet

Here I am again.

Yesterday my family took me to Knott’s Berry Farm and it was awesome!
I had never been before on a crazy ride like that; the craziest thing I had been on, is the “Titan” in Selva Magica.

As you may imagine they sell the video of the ride, it was expensive though (~$15 USD), but I bought it because I wanted to have a memory besides of the pictures.

Here’s the video and please comment!

Long time without posting…

During the past weeks, that idea came into my head, since I’m not learning nothing and I’m not earning too much either, I thought that I won’t lose such a big thing.

So the question is: to quit or not quit?

10 Things to do in 2009

This is my personal to-do list for this new year:

  1. Get my CCNA certification
  2. Lose at least 5 fat kilograms
  3. Get a better job (if it’s related with networking is better)
  4. Improve my English
  5. Read The Lord Of The Rings Saga (Hobbit, Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers, Return of the King) and more books if it’s possible
  6. Learn how to play the bass guitar
  7. Take some Vacations
  8. Learn how to administrate Unix
  9. Get a videogames console (Wii, XBOX360 or PS3)
  10. Post a little bit more

What am i doing to achieve those to-do?

  1. I’m taking a certification course @CUCEA besides that i bought a CCNA book.
  2. I got a suscription for a year at the gym.
  3. I’m improving my english skills and i’m learning Cisco :D.
  4. I’m writing, i’m reading and i’m watching TV in english even though my first language is Spanish.
  5. I purchased the LOTR saga and i got some other books at the FIL (International Book Fair) to read them.
  6. I have my bass guitar and some learning methods, i just need an amplifier.
  7. I’m saving some money, because on 2008 i didn’t have any vacations, so 2009 would be a good year to do so.
  8. On my actual job, i noticed that Unix is a good tool and most of the systems nowadays are using it (i’m not doing anything to achieve this one, but i could get a book or read in internet about it).
  9. I want a lot of things, but i’ll start with the cheaper one (i’m saving money for this one as well).
  10. I’m posting right now ;-).

Do you have a to-do list for this 2009? Is there something that couldn’t be done on 2008 and you’re gonna do it this 2009?
