That Is It For This Month

I am ending the blog for this month early (unless any ultimate news were to ever happen) because it will give you a chance to go over any entry you may have missed, did not read, or wish to comment upon that I posted this month.

Another reason why I am ending this month early is that I am doing a major update on one of the pages to my Napoleon Dynamite page and it is going to take up a lot of my time. For those of you readers of this blog, I am giving you a sneak peek of what I am doing. As of this moment, I have only posted pages 1 to 8 of 34 (maybe more if you read this on a later date). Plus, I am going to go through all the large pictures and make them larger in size (length x width), yet smaller in data size.

Oh, and another reason why I am ending early... My G** D*** computer is acting up again! I just finished re-installing Windows for the 5th or 6th time now... So this will also (and hopefully) give me time to observe what is going on without having to worry about posting something.

PS- (To date) This has been my favorite month of blogs;
PPS- See you next month...

Where Are the Celebrities?

Yesterday (Friday 1/27), Tristyn and I went up to Park City to check out the Sundance Film Festival. Back in 2004, we drove down Main Street to see what was going on. Now I wanted to walk up and down Main Street, and hopefully see a celebrity.

However, either it was too cold, too early or they were inside the restaurants at the time we were up there... But we didn't see a celebrity, dammit!

So the next time I go up there to any future Sundance, I am only going to go up there if I have tickets to one of the movies or I am invited to a personal party up there (ha! good one). Oh, and if I do go, I am going to dress warmer... My hands were freezing.

Oh, and one more thing. You can see on the pictures page, but one of the shops up there had really killer moon boots! Heck yes they did!

A BIGGGGG Thank You!!!

I want to thank everyone out there for reading my blog entries and viewing all my other sites as well...

Without you, I wouldn't know what words I have misspelled, what pictures are not showing up, what pages are not being linked to the correct page, what pages look funny or are not being displaying correctly, what pages are missing or for you just offering your opinion...

The reason why I am thanking everyone for these things things above is that because JoAnna seen that I accidentally had published September's page on Octobers' page.... So while trying to retrieve October's code from my hard drive (where everything is backed up), I found out that I had also goofed and pasted September's code over Octobers code as well. Had JoAnna not told me this, and had I not retrieved the Snapshot Backup from Yahoo! within that monthly time frame they back it up for... I would have had to of crossed out or skip right over October's blog...

After I fixed the problem, I realized I can't do these webpage without all of you. So...

THANK YOU!!!

PS- I am now going to make monthly back-ups of my web pages onto CD-R's. That way, I won't have another heart attack like I did tonight.

Blast From the Past

For those of you who have known me since 2001 on, or don't recall what I look like with long hair...

I found this picture while trying to find other pictures to use on this site. The picture was taken by my sister Annie in LEGOLAND (Carlsbad, CA) back in 1999.

Here is another picture of me acting like C-3PO.

Don't Think I've Forgotten

I just want to remind everyone out there that I have not forgotten about posting the videos of my sister Annie when she was on KUTV 2 News last week.

Sadly, I did not tape it (I couldn't find the stupid VCR remote to set the timer...). However, another family member did record the event, and yesterday on my day off (Tuesday 1/17) I spent almost 4+ hours trying to figure out how to upload a video from a VCR/VHS cassette tape into a computer (it's not as easy as possibly uploading video from a camcorder into a computer).

If you would like to watch the video clips, click here to check them out. (In case you cannot remember the link, or this entry, I have posted a link on ryansharich.com)

I just found out that apparently, since she is being sponsored by KUTV, she is going to be on television every Thursday (I guess until the race). Dear lord. Okay people, listen up! Even though I am posting these as WMV's, the amount of videos that I am going to post are going to add up in downloads... So PLEASE!!! Please, save the files to your hard drive!!!!! (If I notice the total amount of bandwidth that I am allowed each month is getting really low, I'll pull the page until a new month has started...)

Hello, Apple

Yesterday (Saturday 1/14), on my day off, I finally went to visit the Apple Store at the Gateway Plaza with Tristyn. I would show you my picture of me in front of the store... But none of them turned out without having some sort of flaw in them (ie. red eye, too dark...).

Anyways, it's nothing like I expected it to be. Yet, then again, I really don't know exactly how to explain how I thought it would be. It is really nice inside, yet still, all Apple products are expensive to afford. I'm lucky I actually own an iPod. They had everything on the Apple Store website, except for the new MacBook Pro. That is the new notebook computer that is to replace the Apple Powerbooks. The MacBook Pro notebook, that is now the Apple computer that I wish to purchase sometime later this year.

If anyone is interested to check out the actual Apple Store, I suggest doing so. It really is not that bad, even if you are a dedicated PC user... You don't know how bad you will want the new Video iPod before you leave the store... I know I did.

Please Be Patient With Me

Last month, I started taking a new prescription medicine called Wellbutrin. However, since I started taking it, I have noticed some changes in my mind and body, the way it was possibly intended to do. But I have also been experiencing some other major side effects (stuff I am not going to even describe here). Now, I don't know if it is the medication, or the winter weather, or my diet.... but I need to find out what is causing it and to have it stop immediately (or things could possibly get worse).

So, I have decided to start a little test on what could be causing these problems. Starting right now (today 1/12) I have decided to stop taking the Wellbutrin. Luckily, I was on a low dosage, so the complications of getting off the medication and flushing it out of my system will not be so severe, as that compared to a higher dosage. But I'm hoping that it is the medication, and that these side effects will go away.

If you notice me being "out in space", not paying attention, or with a short temper (very rare), please understand why. Thanks.

Set Those Video Recording Devices

I just wanted to say congratulations to my sister Annie, who apparently has been specially selected by KUTV to participate in the Salt Lake City Marathon...

I'll give you a little run down of the e-mail that was sent to her:

"Congratulations! You have been selected to participate in the KUTV, Salt Lake City Marathon. We were looking for six novice runners and you wrote in expressing interest. We enjoyed your story and how determined you are to stay healthy."

It later goes on to say:

"Also, you will be part of a group of six people who will represent the Marathon. You will be required to make [a] special KUTV appearances live on [the] air. The first appearance is this Thursday, January 12th at 5:45 am..."

So, set the recording devices for Thursday morning... If I do record it, I'll post a picture of what it looked like with her on the air... And if I am lucky, I may be able to post a small clip of her on the air. Sorry, can't post the whole thing... I don't have enough bandwidth to do that...

...And Found!

Back in December, I mentioned that someone had lost their beanie at my work...

Well, I have great news! Last night at work, I found it!

Okay, okay... So it may not be the same beanie that was lost. When I found the beanie in the shopping cart last night, I remember that the one the guy had lost his. I also then remembered that I had posted that on a blog entry back in December...

"Your Mom Goes to College..."

Recently, I made the decision to go to back to school (SLCC) to finally get my A+ certification... But after looking into it, there were a couple of major items that made this dream not so possible (well, for now).

One, since I don't have the money to apply for school, I would have to apply for a student loan or aide. The website said it could take up to 3 months to be officially approved (and that is "IF" I am approved)...

...Registration for all classes is due on the 18th of this month. Perfect time to choose to go back now, huh?

Two, I was hoping to be certified before my birthday (June 21st) of this year (something that I promised myself a while back)...

...If I was to take day classes, it would take 7 to 8 months to complete the course (which would make that August or September).

Three, if I was to apply for the loan, and get it, that would be great.

...However, I don't know when registration for the next class would be. So it would be near the end of this year, or sometime next year if I was to go to school to get my A+.

...So, although it looks as though I will not be going back to school right now, I do plan to go back sometime in the future to get certified for other computer speculations that are required in the computer industry.

Happy New Years, Everyone!

I hope everyone had a fun time last night...? So, what are your resolutions for the New Year?

Mine? ... I have a few, but the one I will tell you is that I need to get off the computer and start exercising more. I'm not saying that I am going to stop with these blog entries. No, no, no... But all of last year, I spent most of my free time on the computer. I need to stop doing that and get out.
