    What a difference 24 hours makes.

    Just when you think it's all irreparably falling apart, awesomeness comes out of nowhere. Since yesterday afternoon's chat with my landlady:

    • A headhunter I connected with put my CV forward to one of the big network agencies, who are looking for a CD and she feels I'll get an interview with them;
    • I just had a phone interview with a small agency in Stuttgart who are also looking for a CD, and they want to meet me next Friday;
    • An HR person from one of the large German content marketing agencies found me on LinkedIn, and sent me a message asking if I would like to be considered for a CD job they have in Munich, and wants to schedule a call.

    Now, it's up to me to keep this momentum going, and to bring it to fruition.

    Needless to say, I'm incredibly grateful for this fantastic turn of events, and to all of you for putting up with me this week.

    Happy Thursday!

    I recently had the most surreal experience of my life.
    I was in a room with 5 people.
    4 of us are fully clothed surrounding the one that is completely naked, screaming and squatting in the middle of the room.
    And suddenly a little head popped out of her bottom.
    They told me I'd become a father.

    Dont want to be over dramatic here, but we've put our cat to sleep this evening, she was 17 y-o.

    I know that kind of stuff looks unimportant for people that dont have animals or that dont love and respect animals. But for people who have a pet that they love, they understand and they understand even more if they have ever put a furry friend to sleep. It's very tough.

    Just wanted to share this with you guys, if you have a pet, love him as much as he love you, their lifes are very short.

    This is the last picture of her before the vet arrive. I'll never take picture of her again :(

    • RIP kitty :(

    Had endoscopic sinus surgery a week ago. Septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and balloon sinuplasty on frontal and maxillary sinuses. Surgery was 90 minutes, no problems, and after a pretty annoying week recovering I'm slowly feeling back to normal. I could only handle taking Tramadol for a pain killer for a few days, it absolutely wiped me out along with an antibiotic. Since Friday I've had a constant headache across my forehead, eye sockets hurt, etc. but the worst pain has been walking outdoors in 30 degree weather. That has been brutal on the incision in my nose, and on my now expanded sinus pathways. Basically like snorting razor blades and dry ice. Feeling a lot better today, getting my energy back, taste is coming back, and I've used my Neti pot and sinus rinse very regularly, so most of the congestion is gone.

    The irony of surgery like this (to end chronic sinus issues) is that the recovery includes the worst aspects of the worst sinus cold you can imagine. Anyone else been through similar?

    P.S. If this post gets 25+ upvotes, I'll contribute photos of the behemoth bloodsnot monster I evacuated from my nose yesterday at work, to the NSFL thread. :D

    I'm so angry and so pissed right now.
    Today when I woke up after hearing the alarm I let the telefon slip to the floor.

    Thing is it didn't fell in the floor but in a pee jar (for the night) from my girlfriend that was next to the bed and NOT under the bed...

    I was like fuck!

    She immediately said she has nothing to do with it.
    She constantlz leaves things in the florr laying around and one has to be very careful where one steps specially in the dark.

    In this aspect we are different as night and day.
    I'm über angry!!!

    Six months ago she threw me a glass of water that landed on my computer...I couldn't save it and had to buy another one.

    She said it was nothing to do with her...

    This are things that if I was single and living alone wouldn't happen and we are not in a very good phase right now...and now this.

    I feel like telling her to pack her stuff and leave me alone cause for getting fucked like this I prefer to be alone.

    I know that I'm exposing myself but I really need to vent.
    The thing that makes really annoyed is that I don't have money for a new phone right now, I have other plans that I've been delaying...

    So I decided...I'm still with a overheated head...not to have a phone until Xmas!

    A little update on a Tuesday afternoon while I sip coffee outside on our deck.

    I was let go on a Wednesday, had 3 interviews Thursday, 3 on Friday, 2 more on the following Tuesday. By Wednesday I had landed a freelance from home job for 40hrs of my time. By Thursday I had accepted an offer at a household name company 15min from my home.

    I busted ass and finished the freelance job so this week I get to relax and finish a few small to-dos around the house while I wait to start my new contract on the 18th.

    I guess I didn't realize how shitty I felt working at my last gig. I was irritable, restless, anxious,... now, I'm a totally different person and I feel absolutely amazing.

    Bonus point... I still get 6 more weeks of severance while I get paid for the freelance and new job. And yes, I'm enjoying watching my old company drown. :)

    Cheers.

    • nice, but Ive already got shawarma!sureshot
    • Cow's only eat grass - how do they get protein? Their stomachs contain bacteria, they eat grass to feed the bacterial, the bacteria is what they actually 'eat'.fruitsalad
    • So your grass fed cow steak, should technically be labelled "bacteria" fed. Bacteria protein fed steak. hmm yummy..fruitsalad
    • haha, I've been saying as much to people over the past couple of years, fruity :) "Cows are actually gigacidal bastards"detritus
    • Only quarter piece of steak. Would not bang.fyoucher1
    • lol are you really confused about how the biology allows plants energy to be converted into proteins?monospaced
    • Sorry.monospaced
    • This looks beautiful.monospaced
    • The only thing I would have done is salted that band of fat, so it crisps up nicely. Also, the flames are a bit high.Continuity
    • No, monospaced, I think he gets it entirely, which is why he wrote as much and then made a joke about how it should really be named.detritus
    • Yes I know. That's why I apologized.monospaced

    What a great day this has been. Seeing my dad out and about has been completely surreal, just like I remember as a kid. :)

    I came just in time to sit on a meeting with my dad and some gallery owners in the city. It's been 15 days since he got out and he has already received offers for exclusive gallery rights. This particular gallery we visited was an area called Santa Fe in Mexico City, it's pretty much the most expensive section of the city. It's a massive penthouse/apartment that has been converted into a gallery showing artists from Mexico by appointment only. They paid him for a painting they sold last week and gifted him a sick coffee table book. They want to have a very large solo expo within a couple months. This is HUGE. It's wonderful to see the fruits of his work of the last 30 years.

    Posting some pics of the space we visited.

    getting info on one of the pieces staying at the gallery.

    this is actually a double sided painting. this one was done using his hands.

    a bedroom in the back is converted to a studio for artists to work. that's all plastic on the floor. they asked him if he would be interested in working there and he said no.

    this artists made this kitty with smoke. loved it!

    all the paintings leaning on the ground are my dads

    even the kitchen is filled with tons of pieces.

    Today we have an interview with Proceso and another with a French press later.

    • wow. seems it is going extremely well. congratulations !d_gitale
    • great first photo of you two! glad you are getting to spend time with him on this journey.capn_ron
