I don’t know how to play anymore.

Last night I decided to give another try at NIOH for ps4. Last night was the farthest I have ever gotten in this game. And still, this game it’s so difficult! I mean, at this point in my life what I want from a video game are good visuals and a story that’ll suck me in. I am not looking for big challenges anymore, I don’t have the time nor the attention span. Plus this game requires a level of strategy, I don’t like strategy, or at least not on this type of game. I just want to slice myself through and enjoy the story.

Last night I got to an area and died at least 10 times (laughing at myself here) before I quit, any little mistake would get me killed.

Nope! Not for me. Done! I quit!

I’m so sad though, I really want to play this game, but it’s aggravating and that makes it less fun. I want to have fun and enjoy the story, not get irritated and frustrated every second.

Well there’s that!

Loves and porridges.

In the busiest day, in the busiest life, No task shall escape my sight Let those who worship procrastination, Beware my power…Omnifocus purple light!

Meaning I’m back at OmniFocus. ;)

My favorite place in the internet.

I have a couple of places in the inter-webs where I like to hang out. These places currently are Twitter, Private Chats, Instagram (still) and Micro.blog.

I guess I understand people’s problems with Twitter, although I am not sure if it’s because I’m desensitized from most of these issues at this point but I don’t find it as bad (yet). Or perhaps, in a way, I have somehow tailored my Twitter experience/timeline in such a way that I don’t experience a lot of the problems Twitter may has, how knows. A benefit I’ve gotten from Twitter, if at all, is that I have met good people, some of them have become good friends, some have become an inspiration and gave me the courage to start blogging, I even found out about Micro.blog through Twitter of all places! Another thing I’ve noticed is that twitter has sort of become this place where you come across people with mutual interests and then those conversations move to private chats, whether that’s Slack or apps like Telegram. This is cool, I think, because then it becomes this group of nerds where we all share and talk about the things we like without all the noise from Twitter. I personally enjoy the group chats, people there are friendly and very helpful (or at least the ones I follow).

The place in the internet I enjoy the most thought, is definitely Micro.blog! Even when I first joined, I felt a little out of place. I guess as early adopters, most users are coders, developers, true writers that have been doing this for far longer than I have, to which I am not either of the above. And yet, I feel welcomed, this place has changed my view of what an online community should be. Not only encourages my blogging habits but I have come across with so many good content, blogs and people’s point of view on things that I wouldn’t have found it any other way. I love that I can be open about my thoughts and feelings without getting a snarky comment or a non-constructive criticism thrown at my face. If anything it’s a lot of understanding, compassion and good intended feedback. I have met great people — inspiring people — and I love hanging out with this group of good hearted nerds.

Sorry I am calling you all nerds. :)

At some point last night, while giving Luna a bottle of milk, I typed something. For whatever reason I opened Ulysses and there it was. An I can not recall what my train of thought was. I mean, it makes sense, I just need to figure out where I was going with it.

Oh snap!

Ojiro Fumoto:

Downwell is coming out on the Nintendo Switch tomorrow on January 31st! It is a game about descending down a well wearing guns for shoes. Please give it a try if you haven’t played it already ;)

I got this game when it came out for iOS, great game!

I don’t have a title for these feelings.

When I first had the idea for this blog of mine was to always talk and share all the good things — positive things — not a place for any kind of negativity. However, I guess it’s okay to not be okay sometimes.

I’ve got many things to be grateful for, to be happy and proud of. I have a beautiful wife that I love and she loves me back. Two beautiful daughters, one will turn three in February and the other one is two months and a half old. I have a roof, food on my table and a decent job. And yet I have these feelings that I can’t seem to shake off my head lately.

My degree it’s in Science, a Bachelor of Science with coursework on General Biology, Molecular Biology and Chemistry. When I first moved to the States in 2008, I found my first job as a customer service agent at a call center. I remember I hated that job, granted, it did make me have to get into the language by talking to customers all day on the phone. But again, it wasn’t my calling, it wasn’t what I wanted to do — what I went to school for. Needless to say I has unhappy, miserable and depressed. That lasted about three years or so.

In July 2012, I was hired as a Laboratory Technician for a local company, for their plant sciences department. And I was extremely excited for this opportunity. Finally was doing what I always wanted, working in science and I was happy. I love the job, it made me feel proud about myself. I was always learning and growing both as a scientist and as a person. I met awesome people — brilliant people — made good friends and build up relationships. In five years I had worked in the areas of Biochemistry and Regulatory Sciences. I started as a laboratory Technician for R&D and in less than 2 years I had been promoted to Assistant Scientist. After 2 more years in R&D I worked as a Regulatory Assistant Scientist. It was a great company and place to work for but as we grew,things eventually changed, management changed, priorities changed and yet I was happy doing my job. As priorities changed so did the company’s vision and direction, they decided to do a “restructure” based on this new direction. Long story short, in September 5th, 2017 my position within the company was eliminated thus I was let go. Now I am no longer happy, more depressed than ever and a mix of anger, sadness and a little bit of betrayal. I think,until this day, I’m still dealing with some of that, like grieving in a way. Like I haven’t moved on.

As most of us know, job hunting can be a nightmare. Specially in the Biotechnology field, it’s a tough market, specially if you are not willing to relocate. At the time (and probably still) relocation wasn’t a option, that alone limited my chances. There aren’t that many Biotechnology companies in town. After many phone interviews and many many rejections I got an offer! On April 16, 2018 I was hired as a Quality Specialist for a new company in town, not science related but one that I could use my “quality assurance” skills. It’s been almost a year and it’s going well, I like the job just fine, I have met new people, new friends, new challenges and learning new things and skills. But… and not to disparage my current job but that feeling of proudness and self-worth I had, it isn’t quite there. I don’t feel like I’m miserable at the job but I often have these feelings of doubt. If this what I really want to do? Should I be doing something different? Or I just need time to move on and adjust to my new career? Is this the show?

These are some of the feelings I can’t seem to shake off my head lately. Sadly, at the moment, I don’t have any plans on how to go about this. Right now there are too many other things going on at the moment.

Anyway, thanks for coming to my TED talk.
