The coroner

I didn’t know what to expect when I went to go pick up your belongings. I had never done anything like that before. I hadn’t read about it in a story or seen anything like it in a movie. I was worried about getting there on time and worried about parking.

I was the only car parked in the parking lot, and there was nobody in line. I went to the window, showed my ID, and they said to wait.

I was called into a room and there I waited. It was like an office but there was only one door and a window with a hole cut out where things get passed through. I brought a bag because I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know what my father had on him.

He had some cash on him, but they give you a check and not cash. They gave me his wallet, which was empty and gave me all of what was in it, separately. I don’t remember the contents of what I came home with, but it wasn’t anything that I kept.

Most of it smelled and all of it didn’t have any sentimental value to me.

I was scared about doing it. But I was glad when it was all over.

The building was beautiful, very historic. It somehow made the whole process easier for me.


December Push Up Challenge

I am doing monthly personal challenges to help motivate myself. 

It is a simple way for me to try and do something everyday for 30 days. 

I will update this post for what I plan on doing next month. 



Here are the things that I remembered about you:

  • One time you ate the couch in half
  • You would get excited about the windshield wiper, you maybe thought it was a bird
  • When I would drive you in fey, the leaves would come out from underneath the hood and you would look backwards at the leaves flying out of the car
  • The first time I drove you downtown to Erin’s loft, you sat on my lap most of the way
  • It made me laugh when we went to the dog park and when you got tired with catching the ball, you would just go and lay down in the shade

Restart OS X daily from crontab

I am running some scripts and they are faulty terrible scripts, So they make the computer run slow. I wanted to restart the OS X computer every night to just refresh what they did. I was having troubles with this and finally just sat down and troubleshooted it.

In Terminal:

sudo crontab -e

In Crontab, And enter this and change the time to when you want to restart OS X:

10 0 * * * /sbin/shutdown -r now

The above code will restart the computer at 00:10 every day (morning)

Hopefully this will help others as it has helped me.
