On Thursday, April 16, 2015, I was extended a job offer for the Help Desk Representative Level I at CrossCom National, the company I was placed at by TEKsystems for my contact-to-hire assignment, and I accepted the job offer that day and started working for them directly on Monday, April 20, 2015.

By far, this is the most significant thing that has happened in regards to my Information Technology career, and I am incredibly excited to be able to work for them and continue to develop my Information Technology career.

I know I have not updated the Website in a few months, and I do apologize about that. The past several months have been incredibly busy for me, and I figured it is time to do an update on the Website and let everyone know what I have been up to lately.

This is going to be a lengthy post, so if you wish to continue, click the “Read More” link below.

I forgot to mention this the other day, but I created a new Website poll to kick off 2015. The topic of the poll is as follows:

If I do quarterly contests, what would you like to see as prizes?

I have the poll running until 11:59 P.M. CST on February 16, 2015, so if you have a chance, please feel free to check out the poll on the right of my Website layout.

Now that I have some free time again, I hope to start up my Let’s Plays and Live Streams again very soon. I’ll keep everyone posted.

See You Space Cowboy…

First and foremost, Happy New Year everyone!

I know that I Christopher Eastman.com does not get a lot of traffic, but that is perfectly okay. After all, I am absolutely thankful for whatever traffic I get to the Website, and I sincerely hope that as I keep working towards developing my IT career, I can devote less time to Best Buy Company, Inc. and more time to Christopher Eastman.com.

This entry is going to be pretty lengthy, so if you are on the main page of Christopher Eastman.com and wish to read more, please click the “Read More” link below.

Before too long, 2014 will be over in Oklahoma, and it will be time to welcome the year 2015. Overall, the first half of 2014 was not very awe inspiring at all. For the most part, I did some Let’s Plays and Live Streams, worked my retail job at Best Buy, launched my very first contest at Christopher Eastman.com, and I finally launched Destroyer X Productions. Make no mistake, I enjoyed working on my Let’s Plays and running the Nintendo 3DS XL Contest, but I honestly thought that the beginning of 2014 wasn’t truly sensational.

However, the last half of 2014 was absolutely spectacular. Beyond doing my Let’s Plays and Live Streams, I attended Tokyo in Tulsa 2014: Worlds|Collide: The Undead vs. Mecha and also attended Wizard World Tulsa Comic Con. Both conventions were absolutely spectacular, and I am looking forward to attending both conventions in 2015. Additionally, to celebrate a lot of milestones, I launched The Great Anniversary Contest and gave away over $300 worth of prizes. Also, to catch up on bills, I started working an additional job (from August 2014 to November 2014, I worked at a debt collection agency, and from November 2014 to present, I am working as a contract-to-hire Help Desk Level I Technician for an IT outsourcing company).

Most importantly, I finally met and spent time with my adorable baby niece, and you have no idea how proud I am to be an uncle.

All and all, while I am working myself to death these days, 2014 has ended on a very positive note.

As for 2015, here are some things that I would like to strive for:

  • Spend more time with my niece (this is my number one priority)
  • Spend more time with friends, family, and loved ones
  • Eliminate my credit card debt by early 2015 (the reason why I’m working two jobs to begin with)
  • Work on getting my own apartment
  • Continue to work on developing my IT career (including working on getting some certifications)
  • Scale back or eliminate my involvement with Best Buy (unless I am able to get a corporate IT job at Best Buy)
  • Work on more updates to Christopher Eastman.com
  • Work on promoting Destroyer X Productions so I can obtain some clients
  • Work on more Let’s Plays and Live Streams
  • Continuing to work on becoming a better photographer
  • Work on losing more weight

For the first time in a very long time, I feel like things in my life are finally starting to fall into place, and I have my friends, family, and loved ones to thank for supporting me throughout the years. I honestly cannot wait to see what the future will bring, and with such an amazing support system by my side, I know that the future will continue to shine brighter and brighter.

In closing, I hope everyone has a very safe New Year’s Eve, and I hope that everyone has a fantastic start to 2015.

See You Space Cowboy…

For those that visit the Website on a somewhat regular basis (I rarely check my traffic, but I know that Christopher Eastman.com does not receive a lot of traffic), you have noticed that I have not been updating things too much lately. It has been over two months since I uploaded Part 6 of Let’s Play Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, and I have not updated my Image Gallery in months.

As far as the lack of updates, I have been incredibly busy the past few months.

If you care to read on, I would suggest clicking the “Read More” link (unless you went to my journal post directly; in that case, there’s no link for you to click).

Abbie Fellers: The Great Anniversary Contest Second Place Winner

On December 2, 2014, Abbie Fellers (also known as Entrant Number 67) received the Nintendo 2DS that was mailed to her for being the Second Place Winner of The Great Anniversary Contest. I hope that she enjoys the Nintendo 2DS, and I would like to thank her for entering The Great Anniversary Contest.

Furthermore, I would like to, once again, thank everyone for making The Great Anniversary Contest such a success. Considering that I mostly talked about the contest on Christopher Eastman.com, my YouTube channel, my Facebook fan-page, occasionally on my Twitch channel, and rarely on my Twitter page, I was highly surprised regarding the turnout for the contest. While it was slightly disappointing that the turnout was not greater (considering that the contest ran for nearly three months), nonetheless, the amount of entries received for this contest completely shattered the amount of entries from the Nintendo 3DS XL Contest that I had earlier this year.

Right now, that is going to wrap up the contests for the rest of the year. I am not entirely sure when I will do another contest again, but make sure you keep checking back for any information regarding future contests.

Thank you all so much for participating and promoting The Great Anniversary Contest.

Note: Abbie’s name and picture were used with permission.

Congratulations to Entrant #67 for winning the Second Place Prize of the Nintendo 2DS. At 9:15 P.M. CST on November 25, 2014, and he/she responded to my E-Mail at 10:08 P.M. CST on November 25, 2014.

After a massive delay on my part (due to working so much), I finally mailed the Nintendo 2DS to the Second Prize Winner at 4:14 P.M. CST on December 1, 2014.

With all of that said and done, this officially concludes The Great Anniversary Contest at Christopher Eastman.com.

For those that have entered and/or promoted The Great Anniversary Contest, thank you all so much for participating (in one avenue or another) and making this contest such a success.

Due to a few factors, it is highly unlikely that I will be doing another contest for the foreseeable future. However, the best way to find out if I plan on doing another contest again will be to keep checking back at Christopher Eastman.com, the Facebook fan-page, and my Twitter page.

Since I finally have some free time on my hands, I believe it is time for us to wrap up the drawing phase of The Great Anniversary Contest and do the redrawing of the Nintendo 2DS XL.

If you’re on YouTube at 5:30 P.M. CST, I will see you all there.

May the odds forever be in your favor!

Entrant Number 20 lived close enough to my location to where I could deliver the Nintendo 3DS XL to him/her in person. However, Entrant Number 23 did not respond to my E-Mail in time to claim his/her prize and confirm his/her address, so he/she has forfeited the Second Place Prize.

However, that means for the remaining contestants, you still have a shot of winning the Nintendo 2DS. I’ll be doing another YouTube pretty soon to choose another winner via random number generator, so keep checking back at Christopher Eastman.com, the Facebook fan-page, and my Twitter page.
