One Life To Live

OK my homies and homettes, I finally registered my drone with The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and I got my UAS registration number. All that is left for me to do is to print it out, since the law says, that I have to carry it with me when I’m flying it and mark my drone with the number, once I do that, I’m ready to fly. The truth is, that it really sucks that I can’t fly my drone in the public park across the street from my home. Hey! It is what it is.

As for my weekend? To be honest, I didn’t do much. As usual, I did some shopping with my wife and then I was chilling like a villain at home the rest of the weekend. Some people might think that I have a boring life, but the truth is, that I don’t like drama and none of the bullshit that comes with it. I just like to live a relaxed life. That’s the reason why I don’t get involved in OPP (Other People’s Problems). Some people might see me as being stuck up or that I think that I’m the big shit, but the reality of it all is, that I’m a nice simple person who gets along with everybody. It’s just that I don’t get involved in other people’s lives. The way that I look at it is, that I have my life to live, so why should I try to live other people’s life? In other words, I mind my own business and I stay out of other people’s business. It is as simple as that.

With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!

Flight Of My Drone

OK my homies and homettes, for father’s day, my lovely daughter gave me a drone as a gift. I previously owned a couple of remote control helicopters, but the thing about owning a drone in New York City is, that it is illegal to fly them anywhere, and I mean anywhere in Manhattan, where I live.

But first, before everything is said and done, I have pay five dollars to register my drone as The Exception for Recreational Flyers at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) website FAADroneZone for three years. Then I have to mark my aircraft with the assigned unique registration number given to me by the administration and carry proof of registration with me. Finally, I can only fly it in five specific parks in the city… remember, none in Manhattan. So that means that I have to drive about 35 minutes out to the closest park to me, which is Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, out in Queens.

But wait, there’s more! As you might know by now, The American government, never makes it easy for us civilians to enjoy anything, so they have other laws that I have to follow when flying my drone, which you can read by clicking here plus I have to download their B4Ufly App. In other words, I can become a pilot and fly a 747, before I’m able to fly my drone in New York City.

In Progress

OK my homies and homettes, yesterday I received an email from the medical department at the salt mines and they setup and appointment for me to see one of their doctors next week, in order to determine if they should approve my request for a medical leave. I did request a personal leave of absence with no pay, but under my circumstances, my general manager denied it and suggested that I take a medical leave instead.

Session With My Shrink

OK my homies and homettes, due to a lot of mental shit that I have been dealing with lately, yesterday my shrink Dr. C asked me to see him on my lunch break from the salt mines. I have to say, that it was a great session and he did filled out the family leave act form for my employer. I told him, that I wanted to take time off from work without pay, but my general manager suggested that due to the nature of my request, I took a sick leave instead, so I could get paid.

So as soon as I got back to the salt mines, I submitted the form to the medical department. I really don’t when they will let me know if it was approved or not, most likely it will be today, but I will keep my fingers crossed, because I really have to get away from the city, everybody and everything for a little while, in order to think things through and figure out what my next move will be with my mental health. I have to say, that sometimes dealing with Bipolar II, Depression, OCD, Social Anxiety, crazy meds and life, is not easy.

Calling Dr. C

OK my homies and homettes, since my general manager denied my leave without pay from work, she referred me to my human resource representative. My representative explained to me, that I will need my shrink to fill out a form and then I have to submit it to the medical department for approval. She mentioned, that what my general manager wants, is for me to get paid while I’m sorting things out.

The last time that I saw my shrink Dr. C, I did mention to him, that I really needed some time off from work, away from people and New York City, in order to get my thoughts and all the crazy shit that are going on in my head together. So yesterday, he left me a voicemail, telling me to call him today. I just hope that he helps me out.

The Waiting Game

OK my homies and homettes, I’m 10 days away from leaving to The Dominican Republic, just one problem. I requested a leave with no pay from my employer, in order to stay longer and get my shit and my mind together, but I was denied. Right now, I’m working on other ways to get the time off from work. Fingers crossed.

What Others Think

I think that way too many people in this world, worry way too much about what others think of them. To be honest, I’ve never cared what others say, think or feel about me. The way that I look at it is, that whatever anybody thinks about me, is none of my fucking business.

I keep telling my wife and kids, that for whatever reason, not everyone is going like them. I also tell them, not to waste their time and energy, trying to figure out the why. They just have to let shit be, the way shit is and move on with their lives.

With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!
