Twenty eight years ago I was born, and here I am celebrating another year completed, another rotation around our sun.  If this year has taught me anything, is that we can achieve much through sacrifice and pushing ourselves to become more than what we think we are. This year I learned a lot about people in general, I learned that sometimes we can not help the situations we are put into. But we can help people that are put into such situations, a helping hand. I tried as often as I could to be that helping hand, offering advice, helping someone with their resume, finding them jobs, helping them get out of the rut they are in. I am no angel, I just believe we should be helping as many people as we can. As a person, I noticed I grew up a lot this year, especially in my career, and that is very much thanks to the people around me, people who believe in you, cheer you on, help you in dire situations, especially the tough ones, can make all the difference in the world. Last year, I remember I was very unsure of myself at times, not knowing if I was doing the right thing and this year I know what I am capable of and what I can hope to accomplish.  

  I did not see this coming. Thank you for the work award! Woop woop!   A photo posted by Orlando Villarreal (@commandzer01) on


This year, I felt pain, happiness, torment, loss, joy, many times I questioned where it was all leading me, but its going somewhere. Will I understand it? Probably not, cause we never understand the journey until we reach that destination, the final stop on our long trip, and this year while looking the same as last year, is a lot different cause I know I am going to keep going and I am not going to stop. I always get asked if it scares me that I don’t have children, or am I married or even seeing anyone. This year also taught me that it is best to not go at everyone’s pace but at my own pace. When the time is right, I will meet the right girl, and then we will take it from there. I definitely don’t want to jump into things, but I want to do it right and just figure out who that right person is first. Probably the biggest event that I also learned from this year, is that sometimes people will not change, they want to change but circumstances outside their control force them to not allow themselves to change, if they come for help but can’t get past certain events, and get scared of future change then you can not force anything on them. The best thing you can do for them, as I always try to be is lend out that helping hand, or always be a phone call away if you feel the need to.

Where is next year going to go? That I do not know, cause well do we ever know. We always have plans, goals, but I think its always best to have an idea of where you want to go instead of a plan cause life as we all know, always changes, we just flow with the river, we do not control it. We can throw a stone in to change the course, or cause a ripple but we do not control which way the river takes us, all we can do is prepare for the ride.

I really hope I am becoming a better person, I really do. A lot of people tell me that I am a man that is the kind of person they want to be around, I know we all upset people. I have really started putting people out of my life that do not wish to be a part of it or contribute but if they want to talk, my phone is always on cause I can’t be the kind of person to hate someone but I can be the type of person who goes about my business.

What I hope to accomplish in the coming year, is of course meet a woman that pushes me and helps me to become a better individual and person. Who helps bring peace and prosperity to my life and of course enjoys time with me as much as I do with her. I hope to pursue my career further and speak at web conventions and offer guidance and help to people who wish to code.  I have been asked several times if I want to teach classes at a college but I am still debating that idea. Well being 27 was definitely a huge year for me. I look forward to what 28 brings, and with that my friends. I hope you enjoyed reading my blog but I am over and out, I got truffles to eat.



Morning wrecks…be safe out there. #lamar #bridge
