A few years ago I made the switch. You know that switch from crap computers to awesome expensive computers. Making the switch is like trading in your Yugo for a new BMW. The price difference is the about the same too. In 2004 I bought a 13″ Mac Powerbook G4 (I sold it to my brother two years later…it is still work perfectly to this day!). After I bought my new laptop I went over to visit my friend Ben and his wife Melanie. While we were sitting on the couch watching TV I took out my laptop to check email/do homework/ look something up online to prove I knew what I was talking about. As I took out my laptop and began to use it, Melanie came back in the room. She looked at me and said, “Wow Scott. Your…THING…is so small!” I lifted up my head to see her pointing to my lap (where my aptly named laptop was resting). Ben just started to laugh. Mel turned bright red and walked out of the room. I dropped my eyes back to the screen to resume my work. I didn’t argue with her…I really hope she was talking about my new computer.

Here is a list of the websites that I seem to visit everyday.
I though the list would be longer. I swear there are more but I guess not…I’m so uber-web-savy!
I got sick of twitter so I deleted my account. I don’t go to www.twittter.com anymore.
Where, when, and with whom will I work next? These questions face me everyday until today. I’ve been trying to find a job where I can actually enjoy going to work. I’ve applying to over 1,000 positions online I’ve had 3 interviews. I’ve been trying to find a job to make money and pay my bills. I’ve decided that it’s time for me to stop looking for someone else to give a job, I’m just going to wake up everyday and go to work. A job will come or my business will be bigger and self-sustaining. I’ve started some side projects for a few clients. This will make me some much needed extra money. It also starts the internal pulling toward me setting up my own shop. I don’t believe that anyone else bears the burden of finding me or offering me a job. It’s my responsibility to find and win a job. I just might have hired myself to start my own job.I’ll keep you all updated.
My company, G Scott Inc, has a website. The address is www.gscottinc.com. Give it a look and tell me what you think of my work. I’m looking for clients, customers, projects, contacts, and contracts.
- pop your collar
- wear puka shell necklace
- wear clothing that says “Abercrombie or Hollister”
- say, “Bro!”, “When I was a DJ”, or modify any word to end with “-izzle”
- drive a car with a spoiler
- sell security systems, pest control, or have part in any MLM (especially those based in Utah County)
I’m sure this list will grow. In fact I know it will. I’m just getting it started.
