When your creation gets featured and shared by important folks

For work, I created some Rick and Morty assets for social media to go with our new Rick and Morty crate.

I created them myself and posted them on Loot Crate’s channels. Then this happened!

People stealing my food from office fridge

Well, it’s happened again.

As you can see, I left food in the office fridge on Friday so I can eat it the next day when I came in. When I got there the next day, the food was gone. I don’t know who did it and this is not the first time someone stole my pizza.

I got co-workers who support me. HR is going to investigate as this apparently is an ongoing trend around the building.

WOW! Sam making changes.

Dealing with suicide

I found out on Thursday that a former co-worker committed suicide. I found out that the co-worker was battling through depression. The co-worker was 27 years old, just one year older than me.

We weren’t co-workers for a long time. I was on my way out anyway but we spent several months working together, sharing laughs, all that stuff. We weren’t real buddy buddy or anything, but we spent pretty much every day of the week together working on things.

This is the first time I have ever dealt with suicide personally. Even though we weren’t close, this still hits home to me. I don’t know what it is like to be in depression. I don’t know what it is like to truly consider and go with suicide.

I know I can’t fix anything now. I just don’t know how to handle it. Somebody, pretty much my age, was going through this and it’s done. It’s frightening.

Prayers to the family. And maybe God can also find a way to comfort me as well during this time. I just don’t know what to do.

How my trip back to the Bay Area was amazing

Even though #CREAM, #Love always wins.

A post shared by Sam (@smallflybox) on

As some of you know from my last post about the Bay, I really enjoyed my time there. I was working from the office, I was seeing all the cool things they had around the place. And most importantly, I was being important. And plus I took public transportation each time, which was nice.

They were asking me questions and my input. I was working and giving suggestions, throwing out solutions and all that jazz. I really feel comfortable knowing that I can spend my career doing this and knowing I am useful. I am appreciated.

Another great thing was that I got to hang out with friends. Seeing my old college buddies was great. I even got a chance to see a friend who happened to be working at Amazon nearby whom I haven’t seen in 10 years I think. It was really nice to just be back in the Bay and totally relaxed

As you can see above, that’s one of the cool things along the walls at Yahoo. And I think I will be back sooner than later.

How my trip back to the Bay Area has been so far

I am so happy to be back in the Bay. Sure it’s mainly the South Bay, but I spent six years of my life here. It’s something. Plus, look at the welcome they gave me.

I had to fly out of LAX at 7:40am, which meant the shuttle that picked me up came at 4:30. Ooof. And what’s worse was when the shuttle pulled up, I walked out of my house and straight to the car door. The driver didn’t open it for me. I just stood there. Apparently he was standing next to the trunk waiting to see me leave my house. I entered the car by myself.

Then the driver walked to the front door and waited and even called my phone. He didn’t know I already entered. SMH.

After two years with the NFL Network, I have a new job. It was a bittersweet ending to my time with the network but after a contract dispute, I decided it was just time to move on.

Now I’m in Santa Monica editing stories that go through the mobile app. I get to read a lot of stories, edit and really be the boss. Also what’s great is that I get to travel. Sunnyvale, I’m coming for ya.

Thank God for this. I knew that I would get a new job soon, but I didn’t think it was this soon. Yahoo is great and they treat me well. They have catered food around the clock and the people believe in me and envision me being around a long time. I like purple. Always been a Yahoo fan. So happy to be here! New fun challenges awaits!

That was it

Well, after two years, it’s done. It sucks, but I have left. On to the next thing. I don’t know what that is. But I get some time to rest.
