the coldest day so far

Today is Groundhog Day. It’s been a cold day. The city of Austin has been experiencing some rolling blackouts but I didn’t have to deal with any of it in my humble abode or my place of employment.

I’ll be leaving for class in about ten minutes. I’m eager to be over with class for the week and back home keeping warm.

M&I have been catching up on Breaking Bad. What an excellent show. We’re almost halfway through Season 3 and will be caught up soon.

This week is moving along well, and I’m looking forward to the warmer weekend and the Saturday torta. Peace out.

the case of the tuesdays

Hello February,

Tuesdays are OK. The Spring semester is in full swing, and I’m taking my last couple classes for a while. I still work the full-time job and will be hitting the two-year mark at my current employer this month. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be employed at my current job, and I think about it every time when I’m clocked in and devoted to them for eight hours of the day. The economy seems to be getting better, and I’m almost done with this round of education so I’m looking forward to moving on when the time and situation is right.

Mondays and Wednesdays are when I have to physically be in an institution attending class. The other course is being taken online. Fortunately, Mondays and Wednesdays are earlier in the week because it helps them fly by. I don’t particularly enjoy Mondays and Wednesdays right now, but this current schedule will be over before I know it.

M started her real world career in January since she graduated in December. I’m glad she has Saturdays and Sundays off now.

Life’s been good. Peace out.

the torta lives on

Taqueria Montenegro is a destination that M&I make an effort to visit on Saturday mornings. They make the best torta in the universe hands down. The breakfast tacos, barbacoa, and pastor are also delicious. Their green salsa has right amount of spicy heat and completes the signature flavor of the food. Lazy Saturdays are not the same without a belly filled with the Mexican cuisine brought to this planet by the fine folks of the best taqueria in North Austin.

the keeper keeps on keepin on

I look forward to this site celebrating its 5th anniversary this August.

New priorities will be made throughout this year, and the new direction is in progress. The updates here will probably be a lot like last year in terms of frequency, but I hope to have more to share.

I don’t do much brainstorming on here anymore. Almost everything that I do revolves outside this sandbox I once played in often. However, this is also my junk drawer that facilitates the collector aspect to my personality. I’ll try to post more random photos whenever they’re taken. I’ve thought about scanning random flat objects that contain information worth sharing and posting them up here for you to enjoy.

This corner is a lot less busier than it used to be, but people on their internet surfboards from all over the planet still manage to findĀ  something I’ve posted on here that they’ve been digging for in the online cesspool. A majority of the content has value to very few and even just myself. This intellectual property belongs to me, and I’m pleased to be its owner.

A possible New Year’s resolution: Post to Modern Soapbox more often like you did before.

the last post of 2010

I figured I’d post one more time here before the year ends.

I hope everyone reading this had a decent holiday celebration this past weekend. I enjoyed a three-day weekend. I played a bunch of video games: the X-Men ’92 arcade port c/o PSN, GT5, and God of War. I’m working thru the trilogy on the last title since I haven’t played them before.

I’m looking forward to 2011. I haven’t set in stone what I’ll be doing on New Year’s Eve, but I know I’ll be enjoying whatever it is I plan to do regardless. I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions, but whatever I declare will have the tendency of going into a black hole like the zillions of resolutions that are declared across the globe. I plan to keep it real as usual though. That’s not really a resolution, since it’s nothing new.

I hope everyone reading this has a happy and safe New Year’s celebration. 2011 will have arrived by my next post. I hope to be less busy but equally as content with everything around me. Take care, world. Peace out.
