It’s my birthday today! Yay!

Hi Everyone.

Yep, you read the title right. It’s my birthday today. Yay!

Yesterday was a rather strange day. As I was driving, my car jerked and all of a sudden the engine stopped. I called a friend and had her help me troubleshoot over the phone.

I found out the serpentine belt was loose. In the meantime someone stopped to have me be at a warm place as it was very cold, 12 degrees.

I told the person to take me back to my work and in the meantime I signed up for a towing service as my car insurance did not provide roadside assistance for the plan I had with them.

I finally signed up and had my car towed to the nearest auto repair shop. The next day which is today, I went to the repair shop to have them told me my car was going to cost anywhere from $2000 to $3000, because the timing belt was also broken or something like that.

So here I’m on Craigslist looking for a car on a budget.

I surely will look back on this day and laugh because I know I’m working my way to my goal. This is just one of those events that need to be taken care of. No big deal.

Happy Birthday to me!

The Accented Guy.

Friend: "So when you get to Rice Street, you need to turn left". Quinton: "Ok, give me a second to memorize that. Yes, I can see mice all over that street eating at the rice, hence the street name. The mice are all leaning to the left and at the same time they have tattoos on their foreheads that reads "L" for loser. Oh, and they're sad, because they are all losers" Quinton is a South African native who literally is a "Jack of all Trades". Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1977 during Apartheid. His ADHD as a child has helped him to early on in his life figure out how to think and do things the unconventional way without him knowing it was actually a very unusual way. He had a fairly good childhood upbringing according to himself. He couldn't understand why he wasn't suppose to interact with "white" people during that time, but that didn't deter him from asking questions and being inquisitive. He had built bikes so he could do stunts, learned how to juggle, taught himself to be a gymnast, studied the tennis pro's by meticulously copying every single move they made, played amateur soccer and held the highest record among his friends for tapping a football over a thousand times in one take, co founded an a Capella group called Young Ambition where he was the lead singer, was a stand up comedian for 6 months, annoyed his teachers at school, was the life of the party everywhere he went, toured the U.S, got married to an American, had two daughters, got divorced after 11 years and currently an online entrepreneur. Oh, he also created online YouTube music, calls himself "The Accented Guy" and taught himself to play the keyboards, became a skilled jazz musician, because his voice started giving in. He's played with well known bands all over town and in other states. He experimented using Jazz to incorporate it into heavy metal, rock, European progressive classical music etc. and also studied languages whereby his goal is to speak Spanish fluently by the end of 2017
