Thoughts and Happenings…

Earthquake in CA…

So it started off as a normal day. you know get up early (not wanting to crawl out of bed) go to work (get stopped by LA traffic in the morning half asleep) and start the normal routine of making sure everything is perfect before the bosses get there in the morning. Well ever since I have gotten here to CA everyone has been talking about how they were due for a major earthquake.

Well considering I am from the south and we don’t get that many earthquakes down there I was kind of interested but never thought it would actually happen while I was here. I WAS WRONG! So yesterday on 7/28/08 I was making a run to go get a few things for our craft service department and when I got back and was bringing things in I started to see people coming outside. At first I didn’t pay any attention to it but as I kept looking there were a lot of people outside. I thought to myself after seeing that maybe they are all just on a break at the same time. Funny thought that so many people would be on a break at Disney Studios at the same time though but after a sec I just began to work again.

Well after a little while my two bosses (Dawn King, Amanda Zemke) came in and said Nathan why weren’t you outside. I was like why would i be outside. They said that there was a big earthquake and everyone evacuated. I thought they were just kidding me but soon realized they were not and everyone was outside cause they evacuated the buildings and then there is me sitting in my room working without a since of what is really going on. HMMMMMMMM must have been a God thing. But still I think it is pretty funny that I didn’t feel a thing and it registered as a 5.8. 

So yeah I had my first CA earthquake experience and I didn’t even feel it.

Lots to Tell…

Ok so I know it has been a long time since I have posted. One reason is because there has been a lot going on here in CA and at my job so I will try to tell you as much as I can in as little words as possible so here we go….

The week after the Dodger’s game was a pretty good week. I mean I can not complain at all because it was fairly normal until Friday. It started as a normal day and actually we thought we were going to be able to leave early, then we got a call saying some executives were coming in to review some things. So of course we had to get things ready for them, not that big of a deal and when they got here they started talking to my boss ect… I was working on a few other things back in my office after Ian got called in there as well when next thing I notice, Ian my other boss came into my room and shut the door (never a good sign). He told me what was going on and that there were going to be some changes. I didn’t believe him at first but sure enough there was some changes being made. 

The next week I had a lot more responsibility, until Amanda another Assistant Editor would come in to help out. We were able the rest of that week to get everything done we needed to do which was great. Now we are preparing to organize all the digital takes and such for the Editor to come back in on the 4th of Aug. So there are a few more things that we need to take care of but all in all it is going great. We have another Assistant Editor coming in today, her name is Dawn. So slowly but surely everything will be back to normal soon. 

This coming weekend I am not sure what I will be doing yet. I have a few options. I mean I could go back to Azusa but there is a chance that I could possibly go down to San Diego to do a few fun things. So we will see. i will keep you posted.

Running Errands…

Ok so I just wanted to say that I do not like running errands! But I really don’t like when you are trying to find one specific thing and you go to like 6 stores and they don’t have it. Yeah that is what happened to me today. It was not fun. But then I figured out that I was getting frustrated cause I had no food in my belly. So After I ate I was all better. Still hoping though that it doesn’t happen to me again.

It’s Been a While…

So yeah my bad on not writing lately. you see this past week and a half I have been moving my butt out to CA for about 2 months. It has been a interesting week and a Half. You see I really don’t have a fir place to live while I am out here I am just kind of hopping around from friend to friends house and trying to find house sitting jobs. I am actually in a home right now that I am dog sitting at. The Dog’s name is Bruster! He is a 120 pound Apline swiss Mountain Dog. Yeah he is pretty big, but he is a really really nice dog. The only bad part about Bruster is that he has a bad hip, has epilepsy and Farts (a lot). boy does it stink. Oh well  I guess I am willing to pay the price to have free housing right.

But coming up this weekend I will be homeless once again. I might go stay with my friend Sarah S. or with another Friend Whitney or someone else. I guess we will see. but i will tell you I am excited about Sunday. Not only do I get to help lead worship at a church in Azusa, but that evening I might be going to a LA Doger game! I am so excited. I love Baseball especially going to games. Not sure who I am going to take yet with me, I guess there are a lot of things up in the air.
