I am associated with movies, parties, fairs, happy hours and other events.
I can be salty, buttery, cheesy, or whatever you feel like having me be for the occasion.
But if you leave me alone for too long, or give me more heat that i really need to get going, I'm going to burn.
I won't be any fun, Ill probably make a mess in your house and throw stuff everywhere.
I'll leave stains on your hands, a terrible taste in your mouth, and in the end, I'll just have wasted your time when all you wanted was a little snack to accessorize your party.
Call it old school, call it stovetop psychology, but don't burn Jiffy Pop.

- I thoroughly enjoyed both chapters.
- Neither path was a cakewalk, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the journey. See #1.
- From my first full semester at DVC, I was glad I went into the Navy right out of high shcool.
- Through my final semester at CSULB, I was glad I went into the Navy right out of high school.
- While in the Navy, I had a CO tell me I was too immature to holder a senior position.
- While in college, I had a director tell me I took my job as an actor too seriously.
- Thanks to the Navy, I developed a work ethic with respect and understanding for superiors and rankings.
- Thanks to the Navy, I learned not to be afraid of superiors, regardless of rank, as long as I addressed them with respect for their rank in regards to my own.
- Thanks to my time the Navy and in college, I developed my work ethic, discovered talents and strengths, and gained confidence in my work to where I no longer felt necessary to hide behind a smile like I did through high school.
- One year out of college, and I'm starting to feel like the confidence, work ethic, and foundation I built from the Navy and forged through the diploma isn't right.
- Before: Address with respect to the rank/title first, with consideration for the personality second.
- After: Address the personality you're dealing with first, with consideration for the rank second (if it all).
- Before: Seniority paralleled rank/experience.
- After: Seniority trumped rank or experience.
- Before: Work out issues with a fight, over a couple beers, and show up the next day ready to work.
- After: Let it stew, complain to HR, attribute it to personality issues and not really fix anything.

And that's where I left off when I started that post back on January 24th. That would explain the "three Baker's Weeks" statement.
It has since then, passed almost three months to the date, and I've decided to blow the eDust off my blog and jump back in the saddle. However, if you ride bareback (as many of my blogs are...straight out and raw), would you still call it, "back in the saddle" or would it just be, "getting back on"?
Whichever it should be, I'm back. Obviously, and if you're wondering how the rest of the recap blog would have gone, here were the little reminders I kept to make sure I covered everything:
- Angels Baseball
- Keeping the Job/corporate theatre
- Fall Semester, moving on without going anywhere
- right shoulder surgery
- Two Words. En. Gaged.
- Wrap it up!
Until next post, good day, sir!
