Random Thoughts (A.K.A. the “I aint post in a minute”, post)

What’s good beautiful people!

So, I’ve been a tad quiet since my #30in30 series ended. I noticed. You noticed. Let’s get that out of the way, lol.

First of all, as you can see in the pic above, we are dealing with the after effects of the superstorm Sandy. unless you’ve been under a rock, you know that this is one of the craziest storms to hit the East coast in a minute. Damage everywhere. Definitely one of the worst storms I’ve ever been in. My house lost power for a minute, and trees are down all over.

I got into a debate as to whether or not NYC was “prepared” for this storm. You gotta understand: We are on an ISLAND. Just like any other island out there, we are susceptible to certain weaknesses you can’t help. The best thing you can do is mitigate those weaknesses and be quick to respond, and that’s what we did. Our infrastructure is good, but when you build things bu beaches, under rivers, and by other bodies of water, flooding unfortunately is a known side effect. Our 108 year old subway system is flooded. No one knows when we will be back online, but I’m sure we will be stronger once we do.

Everyone is either home from work or school, but for lucky dudes like me, I get to work from home! YAY! The Knicks-Nets game is still going down, but with this storm, I’m trying to see if they got tix for cheap!

Work is going well. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been there for 7 months! It was a move I needed to make, and a move that was beneficial for me. For any headaches and annoyances that jobs and careers will bring, it’s an upgrade over my previous situation.

I’ve also been studying for certifications in my profession. It isn’t the BAR, but it’s something that needs my attention and dedication. My work experience, along with my degrees, account for about 60-70% of the knowledge, so that helps. Studying now, I’m so glad I retired from school. It’s ill to think that at one point, I was able to study for 4 midterms, and have 2 papers due, all in the same week and perform these tasks with ease, smh. I feel like there’s so much information in my brain, I’m going to overload. However, I dusted off my old study habits and I’m ready to rock!

My test is December 8th, so that is my current focus. I haven’t forgotten about Streetztalk, but obviously I won’t be matching the output I had during the #30in30. I will drop a post here and there, and trust I got some hot ish in store going forward.

If you guys have study tips, let me know!

Stay Safe NYC/NJ!

    Glad to see you’re safe! When Mother Nature unleashes her wrath it’s no joke.

    Good luck on the certification. You’ll be fine. It’s funny you mention certification because I need to start studying for mine. Lol. I’ll use you as motivation. I better get on it.

  2. Just dropping by to check on you and say hi. Been a long time since I left a comment.
    LOL @ you trying to get to the game anyway despite all that environmental drama. Too funny, but glad you weathered it so well.
    Best of luck with the certification exams. Study skills are like cycling; once you get back on it, techniques come right back to you.
