Spending My Birthday with the Wild

Posted on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 in Personal

Mel and I went to Zoo Miami for my Birthday. I haven’t been feeling that great for the past couple weeks but I kind of forced myself to get up and get out for my bday. I actually ended up having a great time. I’ve been to zoo Miami before, It’s fucking huge! We spent all day walking around taking photos of the animals and even got to feed the Giraffes! I’ve been to a feeding in the past, but this was such a different experience for some reason. I had a great time, couldn’t have asked for a better date…

Here are some of the photos I’ve edited so far, I also have so many more great ones to post up:

Zorak The Praying Mantis Eating Fruit Flies

Posted on Saturday, June 22, 2013 in Pets & Animals

Zorak the praying mantis is almost big enough to move over to his new enclosure. One or two more molts and he’ll be just the right size. Here is a video clip of him hunting and eating fruit flies. I can tell by the rate that he’s eating them that he’ll probably have to move to eating baby crickets soon!

Stupid Spiney Burrgrass Seeds

Posted on Monday, June 10, 2013 in Personal

Last night Luna decided to pull up some grass in the front yard and accidentally bit on one of those sticker plants with the spiky seeds. Unfortunately, one of them got stuck to the roof of her mouth just behind her top front teeth. She was scratching at her mouth and threw up a bit when she came inside and I thought she got a Bufo toad but when I looked in her mouth and in her eyes i didn’t notice any sign of the poison. After a few minutes of inspecting, I noticed it and began trying to pull it out but she got a little aggressive and didn’t want us touching it at all. The adrenaline rush sucked because it made me all shaky since I hate seeing any of my pets in pain even if it’s something this small. I guess what I want to know is when something like this happens, what’s your advice on keeping them calm and trying to remove something foreign from their body since they do not know you’re just trying to help. After a few minutes, it ended up coming out on it’s own luckily, but it wouldn’t have been easy to fight her to keep her mouth open to pull something like that out. Especially when she gets older…

New Twitter Background

twitter ss sm New Twitter Background

I finally got a few minutes of downtime which is pretty rare for me and decided to spice up my twitter background.

As a graphic designer & developer, it frustrates me that I don’t have a custom bad-ass web site and personal social networking designs. I spend all of my time designing for others and never have enough time to design for myself anymore. It’s unfortunate because the reality is, no matter how many hours I put in each day, I still seem to be getting no-where financially.

The thing that sucks about my field at the moment is that no one is really willing to pay what us designers and developers are worth. In turn, projects take longer to complete and are more difficult because freelancers end up having to take on more projects at a time, at lower costs than normal, in order to pay the bills & survive.
I strongly believe that if clients were willing to pay more, designers could focus more of their attention to the one specific project at hand and not worry about having to take on others just to stay afloat.

Regardless, I took a bit of time I had left over after completing a task and decided to finally design something for myself. Check out my new Twitter Background image and feel free to comment and let me know what you think.

I have uploaded it to the server in case anyone wants to use it as their background. I understand that it’s a personal background and has all my links on it, but if anyone requests a custom made one for use on their page, I will gladly create one for them as time permits.

New Domain Name, TheDro.com

Posted on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 in Personal

Some guy emailed me and told me he had TheDro.com for sale.
I replied and he asked me to make him an offer.
I offered somewhere around $100000000
He told me he’d cut me a Deal and sell it for $397.
I told him to fuck off.
