Just Saying Hi

I remember a time when I would write in my blog daily, or every two days. Then it became a month, then every few months. And I just noticed that this is my second post in all of 2012. I feel bad because writing is my passion. I still know that my dream job would be in the writing field. My unfinished project on my casino life is still, well, unfinished.

Life goes on. I am still working as a resident concierge, which has its ups and downs. It wasn't that long ago that I was keeping track of 80+casino tables and going up and down those stairs so many times in a day. I got to know which dealers spoke Mandarin, which wore glasses, and which were under 25 (if you are not a casino employee, then don't ask). And now during the graveyard shift, I more or less sit alone for eight hours. I'll see people come in and out of late night parties, or people walking their dogs. When I first started working it was rather peaceful but I'll have to admit it's become boring. Luckily I have been blessed with morning shifts on the weekend. It does mean I see a lot more people and often have many things to do at once. That's always been the way I like it. Monotony is boring.

What does the future hold? Who knows? I still think about returning to the casino industry, not as a floor manager but in another capacity. I have so much to offer. It's become part of my life whether I like it or not.

Amy and I are finally going on our honeymoon end of September. We are taking a 7-day cruise on the Oasis of the Seas, that big honking boat with 14 stories. And yes, there is a Starbucks on board, although I hope to be able to sample from the 27 eating establishments. Now what do I do with two 4's on a dealer's 3 again?

I just wanted to say hi to everyone, because a number of you have wondered why I the writer don't write anymore. I hope I can start writing in this blog more often. See you all soon, and remember, if anybody needs advice or just want to talk, I'm always there
