My proudest? Well 3rd to my wife and kids, I would say, my job. I worked as a manager for 13 years. I had a lot of stress. Throughout my job there, at home I learned how to render 3d layouts. Kind of what you would see in 3d gaming, movies and so on. I was making decent money, or well enough that it was hard to find a way out. Well, about 4 years ago, I was blessed. The CEO of a company, asked if I would like to work for him. I worked both jobs until he was able to take me on full time. I quit my other job. Well, as he learned about the kind of work I can do with 3d rendering. He has had me doing that at work. I enjoy it. I now go to my job and absolutely love it. The work I do has made a difference and I get complimented and rewarded. Something I did not get before. I see a great future where I am now.
I recently traveled to Irapuato MX. I loved it. I made some friends and would have enjoyed staying longer.
Switzerland. My great grandmother moved here from Switzerland when she was just a teenager. She came here to work and send money to her family. I have always thought of living there.
I have often wondered how things are abroad. I like to visit as many beautiful places that I can. I get to travel within the United States but not much outside. So, this would be a great way to get to know some things about your countries, cities and etc... Who knows, maybe one day I could visit those places and thanks to this site, maybe know a little bit about them.
I grew up with an artistic interest. I would draw portraits and comics in school. I was good at it. Now, I am drawing up 3D renders and such for my job and hobby.
Art, movies, 3D renders, outdoors and different ideas. I like to hear how different we can be as well as our likeness.
The hardest thing I have ever done would have to be letting go of my Grandmother. She was the center of our family. She was the first close person in my life to die. Since she passed away, my family has not been as close as it once was. I was not prepared to lose her. She was so healthy at her age and I did not see it coming. I lost my father as well. He was sick for a long time. I miss him too, but was able to handle it better knowing his condition. Losing someone takes so much out of you. Every person in your life has such an effect on your life. So when you lose them. You lose a part of yourself. It is hard to fill that void. Especially if they were extremely close.
I do not think just one thing can be done. It would take most, if not all of us. We need to change. We need to stop taking things for granted. We need to except people for who they are. We may not like what they do. But, haven't we learned that we can not make people change. Pushing people away, mocking them, cursing them. These ways are what are making things worse. Having compassion, empathy and understanding is what will change this world. Not only for the ones you care for because they are part of your life, but those that you may never meet, or the ones that you pass by daily and do not speak to. That line " treat others as you would want to be treated " has such a good meaning. Yet it seems to be so hard for people to practice. I am including myself in this, so do not think I feel I am any better. We need to look deep. Stop judging, stop hating. I could go on with this all day. Still I would be preaching to myself. So again. That is what I know would change the world. I am trying. I have failed. But, I must continue to try. No one is perfect. No one!
Hate to say it, I am not much of a reader. I do however love films. I get into the movies. Not the best time to talk with me though, while watching movies. My wife hates this. So hard to pull me away from a good movie. I look at everything. I look at the acting, the story and the graphics. The graphics I say, yeah I am a bit of a perfectionist. When I see something that looks fake, I can't help it. Does not mean I hate the movie, but it does take away a bit. Still, the acting and story are most important. I have seen great actors doing their absolute best, but the story being terrible just ruins it for me. Vice versa. You can have that great story with horrible actors and again. It is ruined. Until they make a better remake of course. LOL My wife can see through all that. I can not. I have my likes and favorite actors. Lets see if you agree on a few. Johnny Depp, Humphrey Bogart, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson, Cary Grant are just a few. Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman and more. There are some that I think are not the best but are good actors and actresses that bring a humor and a bit of themselves to the show. For example Dwayne Johnson and Kevin heart. I can watch them all day. Well, anyway. That is how I see films.
Hmmm. Well, I have always been able to come up with solutions to issues dealing with a lack of the right tools or needed items. I have always been that person that can get a job done with whatever tools I have on hand. That is why I feel I do so well at my job. When I have to put something together in such a short time, I have to come up with ways to do that. Well, that seems to be my expertise. I use what I have around me. I tend to save a lot of gas and time doing that. lol But, really, may favorite thing to do is create. I like to create things that people appreciate. I do a lot of 3D rendering in my projects. I have become pretty good at that as well.
I enjoyed the family time. Especially on vacations and celebrations. Having no true responsibilities.
