Now Where Was I?

by Jesse on August 15, 2011

Well for those of you that still read this site, and for the few you that give a damn I thought I’d mention that I’m still alive.

So what happened?

Unfortunately the site had to be put on hold for a number of reasons. I was stretching myself too thin and had to concentrate on my family, my job and myself.

My family is now probably in the best place it has ever been, only a couple years ago I was thinking the worst and now things are fantastic. Won’t bore you with the details, let’s just say the my biggest sense of accomplishment right now is the improvement I’ve seen at home.

My job, well what job? Yeah the job that was stressing me out is no more. Funny how it is almost a relief to be unemployed. I’ve got a couple interviews and things look promising. Honestly I’m not really too worried about it. I’ve got some freelance gigs I can do if nothing else comes up.

Finally about myself, I was starting to hate myself and I felt like crap. I’ve lost 40lbs now and feel much better. Also I’ve taken a look at strengths and weaknesses while doing my resume and preparing for job interviews. I realized I tend to over commit and need to work on my time management/project management skills. I know how to run a project, my problem is that I thought I was “multitasking” instead I was really just spinning my wheels in ten different directions. I’m adapting the GTD method to suit me and so far it has helped quite a bit.

So then what about the site? Well part of the reason I neglected it was that I really lost interest in writing about cigars and seemed to have trouble thinking of something new to write about. This site will still be heavily focused on cigars, but I may also write something about my work or something I find interesting. I should warn you though, that lately I’ve been interested in Windows PowerShell, Project Management, and building out my home network. So basically I’m coming back in full cigar smoking geek mode. You’ve been warned.

Yeah, Jesse, I put the blogging and cigar reviews on hold in deference to family and community obligations. I still enjoy the cigars a few times a week, I just don’t feel the need to pontificate about them as much as I used to. Kudos on the priorities, mate.
