Work to be done

Posted in Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 30, 2013 by sethkoberg

Well, as it seems, I have a tendency to neglect my blog and post only once every few months; however, I am hoping to change that.

I have decided to christen 2013 as “the year of production.”

Being someone that makes a habit of inadvertently creating virtual lists of things I need or want, I am attempting to have this year be the year most, if not all, of those things gets finished. This list consists of projects that I have assigned to myself for the sole purpose of being able to say, “look at what I have made! Bask in all its glory!”

These projects range from wood working to electronics, gardening to photography, and almost every craft or hobby in between.

A lot of these projects could be finished simply by throwing money at them. For instance, one thing my husband and I need is a new entertainment center, but going out to the big box store and buying one would defeat the purpose of getting my hands dirty and actually creating something.

Like Nikola Tesla said, “I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.”

Now, it is time for me to get to work.

Vacation

Posted in Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2011 by sethkoberg

Last night, my fiance and I returned home from a 5 day long vacation.

We visited family in Louisiana, where my soon-to-be sister-in-law graduated from College.

We flew into New Orleans (which is pronounced or-lins, not or-leans, damn it!), and we knew we made it to the dirty south when we went to go pick up our rental car.

My fiance had gone into the rental office to pick up our car, while I waited outside with our luggage and had a smoke. Not 10 seconds into being outside by myself, some gang-banger-thug-wannabe walked outside, stood right next to our luggage and started checking things out.

Having lived in Louisiana for 6 years, I’ve learned to pick up on subtle characteristics of those who are planning on doing no good, so don’t try to say I was being paranoid…

While this little shit was scoping out his potential pay-day free-for-all, I decided to toss my cigarette out, and let him know I wasn’t stupid. I sat down on the luggage and started opening and closing zippers as if I was looking for something, informing him that this was my/our shit, and he needs to take a step back.

Realizing I wasn’t an easy target, he waddled back inside.

A few minutes later, the fiance came back out w/ the keys to the car.

I asked him if he noticed the little bastard and what, if anything, he was doing inside.

Not a damn thing. Apparently, this young man was just standing around looking at every piece of luggage that came and went through the sliding doors.

Sad really.

On a not-so-frustrating note, I took TONS of pictures while visiting, most of which are portraits, that I need to do some post work to. Once those are done, I’ll put some of them on the intarwebz.

Let the blogging begin

Blog #1. Here we go.

Hopefully, this site will be a cluster-fuck of all my creative endeavors. Spanning multiple disciplines, from photography to electronics, and everywhere in between. I hope to demonstrate my skills, talents, and ideas, but most importantly, string you along for the ride and hopefully teach you something along the way.

Let the party begin…
