Week 349: Let's SWITCH It Up

Weekly Written Review 

Since the holidays I've diligently been watching video's about the Switch non-stop on Youtube. Just about everyday. I've been truly enjoying watching.  As a kid I would research the videogames I want and eventually save up enough to buy it. The research process is equally as fun. Moreover, my pockets have been okay lately. For the first time in a very long time I'm not worried about overdraft fees in account. I know the Switch is sold out everywhere but my desire to have it has been increasing. Then last Saturday came. On my way to temporary five day gig I was reading the news on the 360 News app and there it was. An article informing the public that Best Buy's will have Nintendo Switch's in stock on Sunday. During my lunch break I ran over to Best Buy to confirm and it was true. No details was available other than they will have it on Sunday. No preorders. Just show up. I wanted to show up really early but I had to work. I was able to request a early lunch (Best Buy was only three blocks away the gig location), ran over and made it happen. I got there around 10:30am and there was less than 10 people ahead of me. Best Buy was set to open at 11:00am but for some reason they let us in a few mins after I arrived. As I approached the line, I learned that some people got their around 9:00am and received a ticket. I got concerned but a dude told me not many people showed up at nine. My turn came and I purchased the Switch. Nintendo brings out the kid in me. I'm one of the view in the world to own a Switch and I love it. It was a great investment. As much as I enjoyed playing Clash a Clash and Clash Royal I'm over it now. It's time for real gaming. This my first video game console since I arrived in LA. Let the games begin.

Week 348: The Extention

Weekly Written Review 

I got thrown a curveball this week. A good one actually. While my plan to relocate to my friends big mansion failed. I was informed that a enormous fee was paid and as a result there's an extension. Totally wasn't expecting that. What a blessing. I was getting ready to cuddle up with a few dozen cats and dogs. Not anymore. 6 months is enough time to become a millionaire. Meanwhile, I'll keep up with the packing and downsizing process. It's been a healthy clean up.

Week 347: Musical Gear Up

Weekly Written Review 

I got new found creative inspiration. I'm making plans to become a musician. I'll start off with cover songs and possibly add instruments from there on. Just to prove how serious I'm becoming I took my Harmonica with me that was collecting dust in my college box. I honestly never used it before. Maybe once in a skit several years ago. It's good to find this creative boost. Things will change slowly and my motivation will soon grow. I'm even cutting back on sports. A little bit at least. I'm reducing my schedule to basketball once a week and tennis twice a week. It makes a big difference. Overall, this was a great week in the sense that I was 3 different types of an artist. Basically I made money in 3 different ways.

Week 346: Operation It's Getting Real - Move Out

Weekly Written Review 

It's getting real in these streets. Or maybe I should say it's getting real in this garage. My place of paradise is closing down and I got to move. The city says so. I got to be gone by the 24th. I got options in place. With better options being considered. The decision is beyond my control. It was a good five plus year run. Moving on to the next chapter. Ready or not, here I come.

Week 345: Self Tape Striding

Weekly Written Review 

I will standby my original reservations about the audition process. It's a cold, uncomfortable and ridiculous room. On the other hand, I'm picking up some amazing momentum for self submissions. It's working for me. I can't recall the last time I booked in the room but self submissions have been working in my favor. I just got to find some self submission that pays better and I'll be straight.
