AMA Awards

OK, this is a pointless post but just have to say it. 2 performances that I have seen have featured one of my all time favorite hot celebs and the other an up and comer on my list of hot celebs.

1st. My true love...Christina Aguilera!!! Her voice makes her even hotter!
And a new person on my list lately...Katy Perry (too bad she is married to an ugly, un-funny guy) Whatever...everyone makes mistakes.

That is all!!!

Welcome to the real world...

A lot has happened since my last post. And most of it, if not all, is non good news. Oh well, I guess everyone has tough times in their lives. A quick one sentence summary before I get into detail...I am unemployed.

So lets start...About two weeks ago I get called into my boss's office and the HR director is in their as well. Now, anytime the HR director is in the room, its more than likely not good. They proceed to tell me that my "STYLE" of how I work is not a fit for how the firm is going. Um...what? I don't even know what that means. I was in shell shock, so I was unable at the time to ask any follow up questions. They tell me that I will have two weeks to look for a new job, and then at that point I'd be let go. At this time they say it is not performance and that, if needed, she would give me a recommendation...(more on that later). They say that normally I would be let go at that point, but since I have been around for awhile, that they would give me that 2 weeks to job search...Gee thanks. At this point, I leave, talk to family, close friends, and even a few close coworkers from the Fort Worth office (I transferred from the FTW office to Houston summer of 2009).

Fast forward 1 week, and I get a call from the HR director. She wanted to check on me and my job search. No problem there, she said she would do that. After though, she asks me if I told people in Fort Worth about being fired...which I said yes. I guess they had a problem with that. She said I was not being fired and that she assumed that I knew this was a confidential thing. Um I cant tell people that I'm being let go. And being terminated=firing. Idiots. So, I've had my last day, just walked out of there without saying bye to anyone. Why should I since in those last 2 weeks not one manager even spoke to me. I get no severance or anything...basically just screwed by the company where I first started working out of college.

So, my thoughts on this whole situation.
1. Them getting upset that I talked to Fort Worth people had nothing to do with the fact they were in the Fort Worth office and not Houston. I spoke with someone in Fort Worth because the person I told, I consider a mentor and a close friend outside of work. At that time our Houston Partner (my boss) was in the Fort Worth office. Since the Fort Worth office liked me so much, I think she was a little embarrassed that she was getting rid of me and they were probably questioning it. Made her upset. GET OVER IT.
2. When I transferred from Fort Worth to Houston, I had the blessing of the head of the Tax Department for the ENTIRE firm. So, the Houston office, probably couldn't say no to the transfer if they wanted to. The entire time in Houston, I never felt like I was accepted. Like I was an outsider (which I was). When it came time to having to get rid of someone, who better, than the person they never hired in the first place. I know I wasn't the best there, but I damn sure wasn't the worst. It was easy for me to be the one to get fired..excuse me, I mean terminated.

So, now I'm home, job searching. I am hoping and praying that I can find something soon. I am going to use this time to leave public accounting and possibly get more money. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise. But still...kind of a crappy situation. Oh well...we shall see what happens.

Welcome to the real world...

This just doesn't feel right...

I began TCU in the fall of 2002, and I must say...this is the first year that I have/will miss more than 1 home game in a season. I feel like I am abandoning my school, my team, my family. I knew this would eventually happen when I moved from Fort Worth to Houston last summer. Along with having tickets to the Houston Texans, it would just be too hard to make it to every TCU home game. I haven't been to one home game yet, and there have already been 2, with another coming up this weekend...which, of course, I will miss. I miss Fort Worth, tailgating, and Amon G. Carter (stadium). However, next week....all things will be good in the world again. I will make my first apperance at a TCU home game! God I can't wait!

Isn't it a beauty...?!!!

Update special bar/club this past weekend. Maybe again someday. Instead I cooked dinner for a new lady friend of mine. Made Chicken Parmesan, Caesar Salad, Green Beans, and Spaghetti! I know I know...I'm good!

What kind of bar did you say?

There is a chance I may be going to a different kind of bar/club with a couple of my lady friends this weekend. I've been a couple times before, once in Dallas and here in Houston as well. It is definitely a different experience. Maybe I'll come back and post about it, depending on how things go. We shall see. Should be interesting...

Still looking....

So, it's been over a year since I have been in any kind of relationship. I've dated a couple of girls since, but nothing that has progressed. Some guys like being single in their mid 20's....but not me. I actually HATE it. Not that I need someone to complete me, but it's just nice to have someone. Someone I can do stuff with, go out with, and care about! I like having someone I can really talk to about any and everything. Now it seems ALL my friends are either engaged or married already. Some already with kids. It makes it hard to hang out with them, when they are always in couple situations. I did sign up for eHarmony awhile back, so we will see how that goes. I've also been talking/dating a girl I've known since the 6th grade. She is actually someone who I'd love for it to work out...but we will just have to see how it goes. I'm keeping my options open though. Id like to say I'm not that picky. I am definitely willing to try new things as well!!! Id even like to meet some single guy 'friends.' So if you know people out there in Houston that are looking....let me know!

It's back!!!

Football season has returned. Life can go back to normal now...somewhat! My teams as usual to follow...TCU for college and Houston Texans for the NFL.

I went to the TCU/Oregon State game last weekend at Jerryworld in Arlington. Tailgated with my usual group for about 5 hours before game time! Since I no longer live in Fort Worth, it is hard to see my old college friends, except for football games that I make the trip for. It was great seeing people I hadn't seen in awhile!

My Texans start up this coming weekend against the Colts. A team that ALWAYS kicks our ass. Hopefully we can get it started off with a win this season. My dad and I have season tickets for the 3rd straight year!

I have a feeling this is going to be a good year for both my teams. We shall see!!!

We all got them...what are yours? I have a big one that a few of my close lady friends know about. It's been awhile, from when I was in college, but it is something that I still think about quite often. Maybe one day I'll talk about it on here...since of course, nobody I actually knows reads this!!!

Can't believe I'm admitting this...

OK it's time to come clean...I have to admit something. A friend of mine got me caught up on 2 shows that I had to admit...So You Think You Can Dance and The Bachelorette. Yeah, that's right...I watch BOTH of these shows. On SYTYCD, I'm pretty sure most, if not all the guys are gay. The Bachelorette...well thats self explanitory. HAHA. Does this make me less of a man...I sure hope not. :) I still got love for EVERYONE!

Back!!! it has been awhile since Ive written on here. Working in Accounting and being a Tax professional kind of keeps me busy between January and April. But now that its summer, I guess I can write from time to time. Since nobody really reads this, I guess I can say whatever I truely want. Lucky me. So...still single. And it still sucks lol. I'm trying to keep my options open a lil more nowadays. Not many girls have caught my eye lately, or at least I'm not catching theres. It seems like all the cute girls that I'd be interested in...are either married or close to it lol. So a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago was joking with me and mentioned guys...lil does she know... :) Like I said...keeping my options open!
