I know that I have neglected the Website a bit over the past month, and I do apologize about that. In an attempt to try and keep caught up on bills and get out of debt faster, I started a second job at Cavalry Portfolio Services on August 21, 2014. With my Merchandising Specialist position at Best Buy, I’m currently working two jobs, and with my freelance Web Design and Web Hosting work at Destroyer X Productions (I still have yet to obtain a client), I have three jobs right now. As always, I am still seeking to get my IT career started, but in order for me to start looking outside of Oklahoma, I need to get my debts under control.

Fortunately, I always pay the minimum on my bills, so that is definitely a relief.

There are a number of pictures from late last year to the present day that I still need to get uploaded to the Website, and I hope I can get everything uploaded by the end of the year. Let’s Plays are still being worked on, but those are going to be coming along at a much slower pace due to working at Calvary Portfolio Services in the mornings and Best Buy in the afternoon and evenings. However, once Let’s Play Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes is wrapped up, I plan on doing a test playthrough and start doing a Let’s Play for Kirby’s Adventure. It has been a while since I had any adventures with Kirby, and I can’t wait to get that started again.

Also, The Great Anniversary Contest is still going strong on Christopher Eastman.com. If you have not checked it out yet, I would highly advise you to do so. After all, you can enter for free and have a chance to win either a Nintendo 2DS or a Nintendo 3DS XL. However, I stop taking entries on October 31, 2014 at 11:59 PM CDT, so I wouldn’t wait too long to enter the contest.

Hopefully, things will settle down to where I can start doing regular updates to the Website again soon. In the meantime, you can always follow me on Twitter or follow me on Facebook for anything that’s going on that I don’t typically post on the Website (e.g., I don’t always post when I’m on Twitch on the Website).

All and all, I thank everyone for your continued support of my current and future endeavors.

It has been a while since I last posted anything on the Website, and it’s been nearly two months since I updated you on the adventures of Solid Snake.

In Part 5, Solid Snake is making his way to the Nuclear Warhead Storage Building, but before he can rescue Dr. Hal Emmerich, Snake will have to contend with a tank being piloted by Vulcan Raven.

On July 14, 2014, I applied for a Help Desk Support position with Collabera and received some phone calls regarding the position. For those that do not know about the Tulsa call center, the Tulsa location does technical support for Hewlett-Packard, and I would have essentially been a Customer Solutions Rep II/Service Desk agent for Hewlett-Packard. The position was a full-time position on a one year contract and paid $12.48 an hour without benefits. After the contract ended, there was the potential to be kept on longer. During the course of the phone conversations, I informed the Technical Recruiter that I would be available to work any shift except for overnight shifts because I wanted to maintain my job at Best Buy while, potentially, working at Collabera. Eventually, on July 30, I had a phone interview with the Tulsa representative, and we talked a bit about my technical background, my work history, educational history, and whether I would be available to work any shift. I informed her that I would be able to work any shift except for overnight shifts due to the fact that I wanted to maintain two jobs. At the end of the phone interview (the interview lasted about 15 to 20 minutes), she said that she would get back with me no later than August 4, 2014 regarding the position.

It is August 10 now, and I still have not heard back from Collabera. It is safe to assume that I will not be getting the Help Desk Support position.

The beauty about Christopher Eastman.com is that, barring any kind of court order or non-disclosure agreement, I can pretty much talk about anything that I want.

Today, I am going to be talking about Christianity and my faith.

I’m sure many people have noticed that earlier this year, I did a contest on my personal Website, Christopher Eastman.com, to celebrate its six-month anniversary. The winner of that contest received a Nintendo 3DS XL. On August 1, 2014, I started a new contest to celebrate my Website’s one-year anniversary, celebrating my two-year anniversary of doing video game Let’s Plays/Video Walkthroughs on YouTube, and celebrating reaching 100 Likes on my Facebook fan-page. For this recent contest, I’m giving away a Nintendo 3DS XL to the grand prize winner and a Nintendo 2DS to the second place winner.

I have had a few people ask me why I am purchasing and giving away these products because I am pretty much just giving monetary products away.

It’s the moment that everyone has been waiting for.

Officially celebrating Christopher Eastman.com’s one-year anniversary, the two-year anniversary of doing Let’s Plays on YouTube, and celebrating 100 Likes on my Facebook fan-page, it’s time to begin The Great Anniversary Contest.

This time the prizes that will be given away to two lucky winners are the following:

  • Grand Prize: a Nintendo 3DS XL
  • Second Place Prize: a Nintendo 2DS

So, are you ready to enter the contest?

Click here to read all the rules and enter, but don’t delay. The contest ends at 11:59 P.M. CDT on October 31, 2014.

May the odds forever be in your favor!

The details have been completely hammered out, and on August 1, 2014, I will be starting my brand new contest to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Christopher Eastman.com and my two-year anniversary of doing Let’s Plays on YouTube.

Right now, I’m not revealing a lot of details about the contest, but I will be posting a YouTube video on August 1, 2014 to kick off the contest and post about the contest on my Facebook fan-page. Since it takes about an hour to post a video to YouTube, your best chances of entering as soon as possible is to keep checking back at Christopher Eastman.com or follow the Facebook fan-page.

Other than that, unless I can crank out Part 5 of Let’s Play Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes and upload it before the month is out, I will see everyone on August 1, 2014 🙂

It’s been a while since I uploaded a new part for Let’s Play Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, but I’m back with the newly uploaded Part 4.

In order to prevent the nuclear launch with Metal Gear REX, Solid Snake needs to locate the President of ArmsTech, Kenneth Baker, before the terrorists can obtain his detonation code. Upon finding Baker, Snake has to content with a new threat – Revolver Ocelot.

Hey everyone!

For those that are interested in the Cosplay Preview Photoshoot that I’m doing today, we’ll be at the RiverWalk Crossing from 11:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.

After that, we’re heading to the Pedestrian Bridge from 2:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.

Finally, we’re going to wrap things up by being at Woodward Park from 4:00 P.M. – 6:00 P.M.

Everyone is invited to come out to hang out, cosplay, take pictures, and have fun. The Weather Channel says that it’ll be cloudy with scattered thunderstorms, a 60% chance of rain, and a high of 91°. However, this is Oklahoma, so take that with a grain of salt. Please make sure to bring water so you can stay hydrated.

With that said and done, I can’t wait to see everyone later today 🙂

My apologies if this particular journal entry doesn’t flow as fluidly as it should. There are moments in which I have things on my mind that I just need to get out.

Earlier on July 8, 2014, my friend Eric made a post on Facebook regarding success. He said that he’d “rather be remembered as the guy who gave his time to have others be successful rather than be that guy on top looking down on everyone.” Those words resonated with me, and it got me to reflect upon my life thus far.

As far as my life goes, I’m still trying to get into the Information Technology sector and utilize my Bachelor’s degree that I earned back in 2012.

However, I started to think of things much deeper than that.

I started to think about all of the experiences that I’ve had in my life – all of the positive experiences and all of the negative experiences. I thought about all of the joy and the sorrow that I’ve experienced in my life. It would be easy for me to say that I wish that x, y, and z didn’t happen, and I wished that a, b, and c happened instead. However, I also think about how, if certain things didn’t occur the way they did, then I wouldn’t have been to experience the things that I have.

I’m not going to lie and say that I wish I could’ve done many things differently. I’m sure all of us feel that way. Yet, I also recognize that things don’t always turn out the way we expect.

If certain things didn’t turn out the way that they did, I would never have met some of the most amazing people I had the pleasure and honor to call my friends and family. Reflecting upon my 31 years of life, I’ve made many friends and acquaintances over the years. I’ve lost touch with certain people over the years and reconnected and strengthened my relationship with others recently. I think about the people that I’ve known practically all of my life, and I’m touched and blessed that, despite physical distance and time, we still talk as if not a day has gone by since the last time we saw each other.

There are too many people to actually mention in my journal entry, but I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for being a part of my life and being there for me in some fashion. I’ve said this many times over the years, but I firmly believe that if it wasn’t for the friends, family, and loved ones I’ve made over the years, I would truly be nothing. You all have opened up your lives and hearts to me and allowed me to be a part of your life, and I do try my best to be there for you all, just as you all are there for me.

I don’t know where my life is going to take me, and I can’t say that I’m going to always be able to live my life with no regrets. However, when I’m at the end of my life, I want to be able to look back and reflect upon these things. I want to be able to tell myself that, even though things weren’t perfect, I wouldn’t have traded the experiences I had in my life for anything in the world.
