DFW in LAX: Or, the Story of How I got onto the Court of the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

So, the last few weeks were a bit tough, but this last weekend, which I am still recovering from, was amazing. So amazing I lost my voice! Happy Valentine's Day! My lady knew I had to be in LA this weekend, and the only flight that worked was on Valentine's day. Whatta lady I got! I fly out early Wednesday. I get to my cousin's house, and he leaves to SF for work. My brother is busy working. He tells me about the Bird Scooters. Have y'all seen these?? They are everywhere, and super easy to use! Lots of fun zipping around the area on one of these, and they will even give you a helmet! So, I end up chilling solo in Santa Monica. And, that is no problem! I realized, I can talk to anyone, anywhere, about anything. I end up meeting a South African dude, and his buddies. He works in Animation, and did some of the work on some kids movie about snow that was famous... you know the one. We end up exchanging Linkedin information, and cracking jokes. They leave and send me to the…

This Week With Zee in the Dee Eff Dub

Hey hey!

So, this week is a little crazy. I had my family in town this weekend, and I was sick! It's crazy to see how much the flu has affected the United States this season.

Other than being sick, I have been following cryptocurrency news pretty regularly. I have a few, of the top 25 coins that I am invested in. I haven't invested my lifesavings. I haven't started trading and going crazy with it, either. I have invested the amount of money I am comfortable with, and try do do so with some regularity.

I believe now is a good time to buy, and that for this next year, crypto coins will do really well. By the end of the year, I predict that the coins will settle out, and we should have some true winners in the market.

I plan to leave the market by November, at the latest, wait for the 2018 end of year drop, watch the markets, news, etc. and determine my 2019 plans.

That's just me though! You should figure out what works for you.

Speaking of you, here are some things in t…

Happy New Year y'all!

In the last 2 months I have been in Philly, New Orleans, and running around Thailand and Texas. It's been busy. But, now here I am, back at the keyboard. Trying to build this out.

A few of things I am looking forward to in the new year:
Spending more time with my lady! New career pathWorking with my non-profits and volunteering in the DownForWhateverI registered, and will attend the Dallas ISD 2018 STEM Expo (Free!) on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 from 9am-3pm. I am really interested in the convergence of tech and education.
