PS:331 – Crypto

So one of the big hypes out there right now is the HUGE rebirth it would seem (not that it ever really went away) of Crypto Currency, not just Bitcoin, but names like Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin – and honestly? I wish those coins I mined years ago on a whim – I wish I knew where I saved the text file lol. Live & Learn I suppose, but BTC even down the last few days @ $2,493.24US for 1 BTC? Oi. Would have been nice.

I’ve done honestly a little home work, and picked up a little coin on this dip, most seem to be from what I can see a careful pull back due to changes on August 1st, but if the trend picks up after things stabilize, not thinking I’ll be rolling in money by any means, but be neat to make this investment and see if perk up after the balance.

One great place to get some solid info is BiteSizedBitCoin. Honestly? He’s got some solid info – worth a watch for some good info, but not the end all, trust me I have a folder in my bookmarks which are just full of resources.

I have a few servers actually using a CPU or two mining for a alt-coin, for which in my finds I get paid out in BTC, which for some spare CPU cycles and not hurting anything on these servers got paid a whomping 0.00104670 Bitcoin (~$2.61 USD) which is for a week of spare CPU cycles and me doing absolutely nothing.

I don’t know how far this investment path will go for me,  but if it continues to grow in any area, maybe re-invest this BTC into LTC (Litecoin) or other alt-coin and see how it takes off, time will tell!

 

PS:330 – Birthday Palooza!

So tomorrow I will no longer have a 2-year-old. No, she will be 3. How time flies and so much fun watching a little girl grow up and a personality form! Oh boy, she has quite the personality!

She does though share her day of birth with 2 others in the family, my nephew Ronnie and my cousin Sarah. Sadly we have not ever had a true mega birthday! Oh how much fun with that be!? Okay okay, may not for anyone else but myself as I think it’d be fun to really just have something awesome for the big day!

This year is mellow as the one set of grandparents are galavanting with my sis and her family. We’ve already had a wild party with her other grandparents which included hats & balloons! (she was excited!)

Not sure what the age of 3 will bring, some have warned its scarier than the 2’s but either way – I love my baby girl!

PS:329 – Brief Pause

So here we are at the end of a crazy week, another is ahead and today after a rough day with little sleep…. I get a brief pause.

Lately, with all I’m hoping to accomplish before summer is done, it has been nothing but go go go. Picking up projects, not saying “Well… not really” because let’s be honest – I’m tired of second guessing myself in what I’m capable of doing.

I’ve made some investments in my future, really working to grow, build, expand, save.  I also have a kid who may want to go to college – or a world wide tour of every Zoo. Too soon to tell at 2.99 yrs old. How time flies.

So tonight, as I’ve slept most of the afternoon that I could, I am going to try and be in bed no later than 3 AM. Have to be at Costco at noon for a cake, likely do digital service from a live stream somewhere here in town (or get wild and maybe a Church Hoster’s service! Be at the in-laws by 1, small party for LG after which she’ll probably just keep partying with Grandparents.

For now, going to sip a tea blend I made (3 black, 2 mint, 1 fenugreek) – tastes good so far! Have a happy Sunday All.

PS:328 – Days Left… or Right.

Days left (as of writing) in this year are 162. That’s it. I only have 37 days until I have written a year’s worth of blog posts. Seems workable.

Been one of those weeks. No stop. Ok, there were a few stops which I hadn’t planned on, thus why it’s 4 am and I’m still awake.

I’ve been working on TFH ideas in the background, TNLLC site ideas, and really putting together some nice finishing touches on FH.  Yes, most of that may seem like code, but typing is not fun right now. I’ve been in this chair too long today.

Next week could be similar, a lot to get done, have one project finally 50% done, I wish it was closer to 75%, but I do sleep now and again, but the goal is to wrap it up no-matter-what this week, that includes a music class, gymnastics class & a swim class for Ms. 3 years old this week 🙂 She’s a busy kiddo, a little overwhelmed by Gymnastics, but she’s learning, she’s exploring, she’s a happy kid.

So going to try and wrap things up here at 4:06 am, tomorrow there are plans to be busy, but honestly? I just want to rest this weekend, but Lilly’s Aunt is coming down, there is a party, I’m in charge of a cake, and I think pizza lol. Aka I guess I’m the food guy! So a lot to work on might as well get at least 5 hours in before I must be awake. Night all.

PS:327 – Forward.

I know You got this whole thing under control
My soul is untouchable because
You’ve already won me
My victory is not in this flesh and bone
It’s in the cross and I know
Nobody’s taking it from me

It has been a rough week. Yesterday was one of those days where everything that could of went wrong, did. I lost a couple hours of work I could have picked up. That’s a rough one because it seems like lately, the hours are less I can pick up, nothing is coming in on a regular basis.

It’s summer and I try to remember that some folks are simply just not in the “do business” mood, they are on break, they are on vacation, they are out and about. Still rough.

The above song has been playing on repeat lately, it’s just one of those reminders that this life, this flesh, and bone is indeed temporary.  I keep trying to shed stress when and where I can, even tonight here at 2:39 am – unwinding with some tea, some music, working on finishing a website for another 30 minutes, then 30 minutes on editing a video I had hoped to have edited yesterday, then hopefully bed before too long.

I need to knock down a lot of random projects here this week, and at every turn it’s been time on everything else, but did pick up some coding work re-working an entire import system – but I don’t think that’s going to improve itself overnight, nor in a few hours of coding today, so going to focus on my own business for a bit.

Night (or Good Morning) 😀

PS:326 – Passive Income + Writing

As it was told to me the other day “Adulting Sucks.” It really does sometimes. Working to build passive income, and that’s not always easy but I am wanting to do so via a series of blogs and advertising – but honestly? Who has time to write.

Well that’s the plan to make the time and work toward writing at least once a day but I’m looking for something to work as a posting ground in which I can then distribute the post to other blogs, so say for instance I’m writing a something for a tech piece that would fit on this blog and maybe 2 others, simply tag where it posts and boom, everywhere.

I started a review of Thrust Networks website recently and I forgot how much leg work I did towards building the content layout, just need to write it all up and get it online, but honestly the brand name of Thrust Networks  has come on my radar as something I’m considering changing or loosing. There is another Thrust Networks in Sydney, and one in India (which seem to love my Facebook page) but the thing is honestly its always had a connection to the misconception of being a company that deals in porn.

Since the  early days I remember when talking to Ensim (a control panel I first used) the sales rep was hesitant talking to me and said “I don’t think we do business in your industry” and I asked “Shared Hosting?” Well the name set him to think “Thrust” as in Thrusting – maybe it’s time for a change, or a really clean re-brand.

A lot going on, a lot happening – just finished recording an FH Update for July, need to edit it, write up a newsletter, and maybe even sneak in a nap! Not sure how clear this entire blog was, a lot of rambling in this one 😀

PS:325 – New Week.

Well, it’s a fresh week. New options ahead – going to look for a few more places to put my resume at this week, looking for remote work for now, but who knows maybe switch things up and see if I can find something different.

Had a good time with my dad yesterday, saw GOG2 and it was fun, dad enjoyed it too! Grabbed lunch and a few small errands he had on his to-do and since we were out, we knocked em down.

Didn’t get all I had hoped to get done this weekend done, but got some rest, of course, upside down now with rest as its nearly 6 am and I’m still awake.

Hoping this week picks up, a few projects in the wings which I hope can be sorted out and signed off on, one is a good chunk of hours, another is a so-so, and then we’ve got the age ol fun of chasing after bills to be paid by the usual slackers, one is really good he like me gets behind because he has a lot of projects, all it takes is a call and suddenly all payments come in, the other? An AP department that seems to sit on my checks, currently 2 checks behind, would be nice to have those funds.

Anywhoo – a lot on my mind, part of why I can’t seem to get to sleep – I’ve laid down, researched Crypto Currency investing, Linux workstation hardware, and watching Stargate Atlantis – so semi-productive. For now going to lay down for a bit more and see if I can’t get a few hours of sleep, not sure when the girls are coming home – but should be back to a full house again sometime today.
