“Sexual Harassment in the Media Industry”

When I was taking an engineering class in high school, a boy followed me into the supply closet and blocked the door so that I couldn’t get out. I was a virgin and the boy demanded a blowjob, which I didn’t even know what that was at the time. I punched his fat belly as I cried to leave. He grabbed my hands to touch him. I didn’t want to touch him because not only was I virgin then, I also came from a naïve Christian religious family. That incident happened in the autumn of 1995 in North Carolina. I … Continue reading “Sexual Harassment in the Media Industry”

“Looking Up Into The Cloud”

    With recent natural disasters, many major city areas have been submerged. South Asia is known for their location of enterprise call and data centers, and the Houston area has numerous corporation subdivisions.

I never knew what good I was until I got away from my family by parting ways with the … Continue reading “Why I Chose NOT to Go Back to School AGAIN”

“Colleagues and Friends, Part 1”

  In big cities, one’s colleagues are their friends! I grew up with the notion that it’s improper to not mix business with pleasure, yet several colleagues and friends met their life partner or spouse from work. Times have changed with since the old coined terms about business but there are some lessons that will never die. In smaller towns around the world, meeting a life partner does have challenges since they would be in small working circles. In big cities, couples can work at the same company, and yet they never see each other during their day due to … Continue reading “Colleagues and Friends, Part 1”

“NAB Show 2017 Started Off Terribly”   When I arrived at the San Francisco Airport, about 2:30pm, I went to get my flight ticket and I noticed that it had a different time than what the original reservation had listed. My flight was originally supposed to be 5pm but instead it changed to 7:30pm. I asked an employee of the airline and the women told me that it delayed due to construction on the runway and that ALL flights are delayed. I got through the TSA line rather quickly. I waited around and when I went to the gate, the … Continue reading “NAB Show 2017 Started Off Terribly”
