As usual it takes me about a month in between posts, so here is what is and has been going on…
Bartending Course – A few weeks back I decided to take an introductory course on bartending and mixology.Â I have always wanted to be a bartender and enjoy the high paced environment that comes with the job.Â Anyway, 3.5 weeks have gone by and tonight I have my final exam.Â Basically there is a written test as well as a practical exam where you have to do things like make 3 different drinks in 3 minutes.Â I know that may sound easy, but its harder than it sounds.Â Anyway, hopefully I pass tonight then the whole class is going drinking after.Â Should be a good time.
Financial Planning – The markets are so bad right now, that I figure this is probably one of the best times to get in (well probably would have been better about a month ago, but never did that).Â Anyway, I’ve realized over the years that I suck at trading and I think I have lost on pretty much every stock purchase I have ever made.Â So, why not get someone else to do it for you.Â I remember my bank telling me a long time ago that if you were willing to invest a certain amount they would give you one of their “experts” to work with you on an investment strategy.Â Well, I finally reached that goal and had my meeting yesterday.Â The planner is putting together my plan over the next week and a bit so I should be ready to go to make some money shortly.Â Fingers crossed.
Trips – Will be heading to Las Vegas in a week for what will hopefully be an amazing weekend with several PAL members.Â I have tried to organize some fun stuff, but so far it has been about a 50/50 interest so we’ll see where that goes.Â Ah well, will be good to seem some old faces regardless and maybe meet some new people.Â After Vegas I think I may go back down to Argentina for about 3 weeks, but still waiting to confirm on that.Â After that I may or may not head over to Europe for August and maybe stick it out for Budapest in September, but that is just aÂ dream right now.
Motorcycle License – I bought the books to get my motorcycle license, but still need to read them and do the test.Â I think driving a bike would be a lot of fun, though a little dangerous.Â Since I don’t have a car (everything I would want is too expensive) I think a bike would be great to use to get around.Â Once I get that done was thinking about picking up a used R6 or something.Â I love the Harley Night Rod, but don’t want to spend that much.Â Anyone have one?Â Tips?
Affiliate Stuff – I am falling so far behind in this game I need to start busting my ass again.Â I have like 3 new sites on the go and get so overwhelmed sometimes I don’t know where to focus my time.Â To top it off my existing sites need some work and I just finished redesigning one of my bigger sites.Â I need to hire someone I think, but am also kinda cheap with what I would want to pay.Â Decisions, decisions.
Well… thats pretty much all I can think of for now.Â I’ll try and get some better posts up here soon and put more focus into what I write here.Â I definitely need to start doing more affiliate tips.Â If you are coming to Vegas let me know and I’ll see you there!
Anyway, I’ll leave you with this…
