After work on Black Friday 2012 I drove to Santa Barbara City College to workout. My brother and I were going to tag-team the Spartan Sprint in Malibu the following Saturday. I’d been losing fitness since my August move to San Luis Obispo removed me from my workout community and routine at CrossFit Pacific Coast (CPC) in Santa Barbara (a poor excuse, I know). I prescribed my own body-weight CrossFit workout to prep myself for the Spartan Sprint. Little did I know my 18 minute dose was about to come with a side effect of 5 days in the hospital.
Enjoy your burrito.
A man should never be ashamed to say he has been wrong, which is but saying in other words that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
If you’re on a month to month lease in California and give your landlord 30 day notice mid-month, rent for the following month is prorated based on the number of days you’ll occupy the property during that month. Said differently, you can move out at any time during a month, after giving 30 day notice, and pay only for the time you occupy the rental. The lease agreement being “month to month” does not mean that you have to stop paying rent on the day of the month your rent is due (usually the 1st).
When I ran into this issue I couldn’t find a solid answer on the web. So, I’ve documented my experience in hopes it will help someone out there work through the same issue faster and with less stress. My experience follows:
So I’ve been thinking about this whole “being happy” thing and I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy. You know, we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often.
States released their 6 song debut EP, “Line ‘em Up,” on October 12th, 2010. I downloaded my copy from Amazon for $5.94.
This new band showcases the talents of Mindy White, whose voice I fell in love with during her time layering vocals with Leighton Antelman in Arizona-based indie/emo/ambient act Lydia.
On Monday, August 16th 2010 I accepted a job offer from The Territory Ahead. I had bounced back from unemployment in just 2.5 months <dusts a little dirt off my shoulder>. I told my new manager I could start in two weeks, on Monday, August 30th.
All great and dandy, right?
When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
Note: Don’t be fooled by the date of this post. I wrote it a couple of week backs, for a prior incarnation of marcasmus.com. I’m just now porting it over to the new marcasmus.com!
About a week and a half ago, I received three letters from the California Employment Development Department. Inefficiently enough, the first informed that I would not receive unemployment benefits for the first full week of my unemployment while the second warranted its own envelope to hold check for my second week’s unemployment benefits. The third basically threatened to stop my benefits (see: “the only thing keeping me afloat here!”) if I don’t show up for the reemployment and eligibility assessment appointment (REAA) they graciously scheduled on my behalf.
I don’t think myself vain but my work has raised my search engine optimization awareness and standards. Appearing anywhere but first in Google’s search results for “Marc Asmus” is no longer acceptable when everyone who is anyone turns to search engines first for information. Bet you didn’t know that Google accounts for 71.43% of searches by volume.
