I’m close to tears right now.
Maybe it was a bad idea to do this in The Kookaburra. Crying in public is kind of frowned upon, right? The sappy coffee shop music isn’t helping.
Oh great. Coldplay just came on.
I’ve resisted looking back at all these pictures since we left Los Angeles in 2011. I had come to terms with the fact that moving back home was the best decision for Amy and me; if we were to eventually have a family, Los Angeles wasn’t the place to do it.
Just because It was the rational decision, doesn’t mean it made it any easier to leave.
When we moved to Los Angeles in 2009, I had no clue what I’d end up doing for work.
Little did I know, I would end up with the best Production Assistant job in all of Hollywood. I quickly learned that it wasn’t the job that was special, it was the people around the job that made it one of the best experiences of my life.
Today is the last official day of shooting for Glee, which is why I’m sitting here looking at all these photos … reminiscing.
I love my Glee family so much. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about you all.
I feel SO lucky and blessed to have been able to get to know each and every one of you.
I haven’t been able to watch an episode of the show since I left after Season 2; I knew that it would bring back too many incredible memories that I wouldn’t be able to deal with emotionally.
You better believe I’ll be watching Glee’s final episode on March 20.
Gigantic box of tissues by my side.
You hear that?
Well, of course you don’t because you’re not here.
This is the first time all week I’ve sat in silence, mainly because I can’t write and listen to people talk at the same time. My brain ends up all scattered.
It is really hard to sit here right now and not be listening to a podcast. Every moment that I’m not working on a big project, writing, or sleeping, you will find me listening to podcasts.
I freaking love podcasts.
Nobody likes the word fee.
Ugh! It just made my skin crawl typing it.
As you’re probably well aware, Comcast charges a $10 fee per month (which is up from $8 dollars in 2014) for using their modem, which conveniently doubles as a public WiFi hotspot that any of their customers can connect to.
Well, being the control freak and penny pincher that I am, I didn’t like the thought of either of those things and was determined to find a way out of Comcast’s vice grip on my wallet.
It turns out that it’s actually quite easy to save $120 a year by buying your own modem and returning the rental. Here are some step-by-step instructions for you to follow to ditch this fee once and for all:
- Buy your own modem,
preferably this refurbished model that is $30 off for today only(That was fast! The refurbished model is already sold out. This version of the modem is still a great deal, and is brand new) . Make sure that you have your own router, which provides the Wi-Fi signal to your devices. Comcast’s new modems have the Wi-Fi router capabilities built in.
- Call or visit a Comcast office and let them know that you purchased your own modem. They will ask for some identifying numbers on the back or bottom of your new modem so that they can connect the modem to their systems.
- Return the modem/router that Comcast provided you.
- Commence saving $10 per month on your cable bill each month.
There are a few caveats:
- If you have phone service through Comcast, this will complicate things for you since the voice signal is now being sent through your modem.
- If you don’t purchase the modem I have recommended above, check out this list to make sure the modem you are buying is on Comcast’s approved modems list.
