January 11, 2019: Saw my dad's dog sleeping on the floor and immediately thought of Firefox lol
*For those of you who donít know already. Firefox is the name of a
web browser. Itís made by a Mozilla Foundation
which is a non-profit organization that supports open source software.
January 1, 2019: Happy New Year!!!! Hello 2019 and goodbye 2018. Strange how we treat the changing of a calendar year as it
magically is some kind of alternate world. We say things like, "I'm going to start fresh" or "Things are going to be different" but
let's be real... is it really? It's kind of like how people act when someone enters or leaves their life too. Like some kind of parallel
universe. Suddenly, you become inspired to do better or feel doomed to repeat bad habits. Remember that our choices are our own and
nothing, but you stand in your way. Of course, other life circumstances do come in to play but no one is truly stuck. The point is, however
youíre feeling, be who you feel you need to be. Donít except to live a dream overnight but at least start on the path. Once you start
to see things change, youíll know youíve already won. Good luck in 2019 but you wonít need it ;)
December 29, 2018: Last ride of the year 2018. I can't wait for the next round of adventures :D
December 25, 2018: Merry Christmas!!!
December 19, 2018: Normally I like the cold but for some reason the cold is bothering me...
December 6, 2018: Just saw Google's "Made with Code" website. All I can saw it wow!! I remember when I was about twelve years
old my father got me a Lego robotics kit which I instantly fell in love with. It came with sensors, motors and software to program the
controller block. It was amazing!!! When I got to high school my "Advanced Technology" class used these same kits!! The software was the
cool part for me. It used an interface that lets the programmer drag and drop blocks in different combinations to tell the robot how to
react to its environment. I couldn't get enough of it which is one reason I know I love Computer Science so much lol. This "Made with
Code" website seems to use the very same concept with coding but instead of programming a robot, you're programming an animation and can
see the code or the image change as you add functions!! This lets you see and imagine how the computer (compiler) reads what you put in.
November 29, 2018: I saw David Blaine try to beat 8 minutes live on TV when I was younger. I never stopped thinking about it. Turns out he not only beat that record he beat DOUBLE that record!!!

November 22, 2018: Happy Thanksgiving!!! Every fourth Thursday in November (in the US) is based on the colonial Pilgrims' 1621
Fun Thanksgiving Day fact:
"TV dinners have Thanksgiving to thank. In 1953, someone at Swanson misjudged the number of frozen turkeys it would sell that
Thanksgiving -- by 26 TONS! Some industrious soul came up with a brilliant plan: Why not slice up the meat and repackage with
some trimmings on the side? Thus, the first TV dinner was born!" - Saeed Ahmed, CNN
November 18, 2018 @ 7:00am: Time to start my new 12 hour shifts.
November 11, 2018 @ 5:05pm: Awesome ride to the NJ Vietnam Veterans Memorial at PNC Arts Center for Veterans Day. So
many people were there supporting and it felt amazing to participate. Thank you NJ State Police for the escort and everyone
else who was there :D
November 9, 2018: I've always been told there's nothing wrong with asking for a discount. However, I almost never ask
because not only does it feel tacky but I also don't want to insult the person I'm asking. Nothing hurts more than when someone
basically asks for my service but is being cheap.
September 9, 2018: It's one of those questions we all wonder. I have only not tipped three times. First time I simply
didn't know (too young and just learned to tip a hair dresser). Second, the person was just plain rude. Third, we couldn't eat
