Big Fat Vacation

Vacation Plans

For my next “mini” vacation, I plan to tackle something that has been driving me nuts for years. The cables under my desk. They are out of control and I have spent countless hours trying to get them to look less unwieldy.

I’ve purchased a couple of items to help the process.


Getting things organized and throwing out things I don’t need nor ever going to use has become a priority. The bottom line is that I have accumulated too much stuff. When I get to that point, I almost feel “dirty.” It is like a personal cleanse must occur to make me feel complete and somewhat normal.

Here is the current mess.

September Vacation

I have a much of stuff I’d like to do this time around. My last vacation was a trip to Georgia. This time I plan to stick around the house.

I plan on using a lot of time to code but I also want to work on some of my Minecraft creations. Over the weekend, I found a lot of designs that I had done previously but when I revisit them now, they look completely wonky. I’m pretty sure that is a real word.

I plan to keep track of what I am doing. I believe iOS 11 and MacOS official releases come out this week.

Hopefully, I won’t screw off too much.

Update: The original plan was to post about what I did each day while on vacation but as it turns out, I played way too much Minecraft. I built a resort town and am actually still working on it. I think that is very ironic.

My Big Fat Upcoming Vacation

I’ve decided to call it “big and fat” because that is probably what I’ll become while I am on vacation.

I’m looking forward to actually leaving my house and spending a week somewhere else. It is a strange concept but I’m sure I’ll get over it.

It has been a good year as far as my professional life but really horrible on the relationship side of things. I’ve recently had a talk with a friend of mine who I work with from time to time and we seem to be in the same spot. I asked him if he was interested in dating after what he just went through and he said he wasn’t. I have no desire to enter into any other relationships. I believe this was the last try for me. I haven’t had many in my life but it doesn’t take someone who is really good at relationships to recognize someone who is very bad at them. I aim to spare that future “special someone” from that experience.

This trip is a gathering of people who have been important in my life for the last several years. We’ve been there for each other when we’ve needed it and I am looking forward to relaxing with them.

I think I really need to get away. I’ve planned on doing something like this for many years but now, it is overdue.

My friend will be picking me up in a couple of weeks and off we’ll go.

I plan on taking a shitload of pictures. There will probably be podcast material generated. Who knows?
