Missing Out on BABBQ16.

Missing Out on BABBQ16.

So for anyone who has ever followed me on Google+ or come across this blog within the past couple years... you know that I absolutely LOVE android. Even now after having an iPhone 6s as my daily driver for nearly a year; my favorite and first love (as far as mobile operating systems are concerned) is Android. As a result, one of my favorite annual conventions to attend has been the Big Android BBQ by IDEAA. I've been to the BABBQ a few times and it seems to get better every year (weather impending). It's great for both developers and enthusiasts because they try to make sure that there's a bit of something for everyone.

 I always enjoy the food, fun, learning and even a bit of the networking/socializing... which says a lot for an introvert like me. There's just something about being around like minded people that makes me feel a little more at home and comfortable in the environment. I think somewhere between 85-90% of the people I've met IRL from Google+ have been from attending these events and I've formed some great friendships along the way.

Hey There!

Hey There!

So, I haven't updated this website in over a year and its pretty pathetic. The YouTube channel has been neglected for an even longer amount of time. In truth the past year has been a bit of journey and I haven't had the time or resources to keep up with the blog the way I originally intended... I've had two major surgeries within the past five months so for awhile my sole interest in getting on the internet involved streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Plex, etc and a few social media posts here and there. However, things are about to change a lot.

Unplugged.

It's been a rough year... and if I'm being honest nothing has gone as planned so far. I lost my mom about 3 and a half weeks ago which was completely unexpected... She was only 58 years old and still seemed to have plenty of days ahead of her but life is strange like that and tomorrow isn't promised to anyone. I don't plan to go any further into detail because although this is my personal tech blog I have a separate site for getting all emotional and whatnot. I did however want my readers here to have a clue as to why the updates I promised for January have not begun yet... I'm trying to get my life back to normal or as close to it as I can after adjusting to the loss of someone I loved dearly and spent a lot of time with.
