So I kicking things up a notch with my company and brand ideas so I decided to setup a gofundme to get fund for my business and as well to help prepared for the possible of surgery i.e. make sure my company can run with some employees while I recover. This may not happen in which I have an idea to start a kind of disability or something for employees such as myself who have disabilities. Anyways, this is what I think is need to start. Here is the gofundme link for my business idea: https://www.gofundme.com/rust-of-all-tradesrutakus
So it goes to say I’ve been in business on and off since 2010 and was in a bad car accident in 2012 where I got permanent back and spine issues with multiple bulging discs from my neck down to my lower back and I still bust my ass harder then some of these healthy fuckers. I do work another job but part of this money is so I can slowly work my way into focusing more on my services and products I already provide and get more inventory to sell as well.
Lately, my brain seems to have been running in overdrive to start try and kick things up a notch to start growing my business and try something new with my ideas. More or less because I find working for other business/people/etc where your nothing but a number and/or just don’t give a shit. So here at Thoughts Of Everything I will be uncensored here because there is just a lot of things that irritate me to no end with work life and other things going on in the world. This web site help me because I can careless if you actually read my post because I know there is always something for someone to read on Thoughts of Everything.
Anyways as Thoughts of Everything is part of my business in that this site if for my creative stuff and hell posting or blogging is in a way creative but this is the home for my music. So Thoughts of Everything is more for me but as soon as I have less time for admin stuff on the site I would like to be able to pay a couple other people to do the admin stuff so I can focus on the creative side of this site and my music. And this is part of the idea I have for Productions of the Human Mind which is also one of my brands/tradenames.
But the main idea is to create a kind of jack of all trades thing. My company name has been Rutakus pronouced Roo-taku-us and has been computer repair/sales and domain name/web hosting reseller for a while. I’m currently playing with my up coming new name Rust of All Trades. Right now my business is making enough money to maintain all current company bills and still have some income but at this this not enough to survive off of where i can leave my current job and be able to focus on providing service and thinking of new innovative ideas.
Anyways today is my nephew’s birthday who took his own life at a young age. Happy Birthday Travis Crane. I love and miss you man.
Thanks for reading everyone and if you donate to my gofundme please let me know and I will give you paid access on this site.

Well there really isn’t much going on in the back end of my site as I have been busy with my other web sites and my other job so I haven’t hadn’t too much time to tinker around in the back end of Thoughts of Everything. But I have been keeping things up to date with WordPress and the plugins that I have installed. I’m thinking of have my company make plugins for WordPress as I can’t seem to find all the one I want or lack some functionality I need. For right now we got want we need. Right now there isn’t a lot of active members which is nice because I haven’t got the forums all the way done or working with my design. Things are starting to get caught up but I might be looking into hiring someone for my company here soon. As I think it’s time to kick things up a notch so I can focus on some of my hobbies more like this site, writing, music and just other random shit. Being damn limited with shitty ass pain all the time sucks and with the holidays and Black Friday shit is just a little bit more hurting. One day off a week as well. And man fuck I hurt. Normally I wouldn’t allow words beyond shit and ass for public view but that explains my pain levels after this week. Anyways, that’s it for the moment I’m getting a bit tired and I do have to be up early for work. Thanks for reading.
Well I must first say I’m sorry for not posting everyday or at least a lot then I have this month. Life get in the way and sometimes and somethings have to be pushed back while moving other things forward. And since I’m trying my damnest to grow my own company which I’m in the process of transforming into a “of all trades” type of thing. In fact my business Rutakus will also be known as Rust of All Trades but it will still bring you to Rutakus web site and will be that way for who know how long. Maybe forever LOL. But regardless I’m trying to do my own thing as right now I also work another job which as most of us know we are just another number by most companies, KBS or Kellermeyer Bergensons Services is no different. I’m disabled but not label so by my government as I attempted not long after losing my job because of my car accident injury injury issues that I still have to this day. This car accident happened around my birthday so it does make things kind of shittier at times but I manage. I wish I wouldn’t had settled with my law suite but part of it is do the god damn bastards who fake injuries for money and the shitty companies and people who were involved in this law suite. But I forgive their stupid greedy ass what goes around comes around. Same thing can be said about all the recent people that have been trying to hack this web site. I do my best to maintain the site and keep it secure. I actually plan on getting a SSL cert soon to secure user sessions more but Thoughts of Everything is doing pretty good. I have a pretty large blacklist of ip address of suspected people trying to hack the site or spam the site. Contact me if you want some of my blacklist. I will share as I stand against spam and unethical hacking.
Anyways that it’s for the moment I kind of hurting in my spine a little bit. Thank you guys for reading.
So first this is going to be a multi-post meaning it will have more then one topic. This is because I have a lot going on and I kind of need to write as well for more then one reason. First I posted my job blog post on this site in the Craigslist resume section to one increase my views and also start trying to get a different and better paying jobs that cares and works well with person’s with disabilities as that is what I am. Here is the Craigslist posting: https://spokane.craigslist.org/res/d/about-that-time-to-get-better/6701339654.html I’m only looking of work in the Spokane, Wa US area unless remote work is available. Also I wanted to state that soon I will be having a premium member access and payment options soon to help cover costs of running the site and if I run into any issues with my posts. Although, I do my best to be right in that I as well as the site never intent to harm anyone but in some sense people do it to themselves and what goes around comes around is what I truly believe and maybe it is because of some of the things I have seen throughout my life.
Anyways, so today I’m in a lot of extra pain and it hurts like hell. I don’t have my actual medical records available at this time to give you guys what is actually going on but I will say I have bulging disc from my neck down to my butt. and some compression on my annular cord in my thoracic area. Today it really hurts at times to a point it makes me want to to give up as it so unconformable and makes it hard to move. And let me put it this way. I work 47 hours a week on average and one day off a week. This is part of the raise I want a different job or where I’m making enough running my own company I don’t need to work for anyone else. Right now I’m trying to make it and deal with it as much as I can. All this shit because of a car accident and now I have to deal with this for the rest of my life. I am thankful for the amount of tools and medicine have available and the help. Thank you for reading my complaining. Today is just one of those days where I’m in a lot of extra pain.
Well the time has come to find a better job that can offer me a better opportunity to earn more money as I know I’m under paid for my knowledge, work skills and ethics. I’m a very hard worker despite me being basically disabled with back/neck injury/issues and keratoconus in my eyes. I’m basically working two jobs right now. One is my own business which is nice that I can make my own hours. My second job I have been at for almost 2 years at the time of this post. The company I work for is Kellermeyer Bergensons Services and I am a Crew Lead. It’s about that time to change my job as I have many reason for this. But the big thing is that I have asked for a raise meany times so that I paid the minimum lead wage but I get no answer. Next year I will be at minimum wage and I know I’m underpaid regardless KBS doesn’t care about their employees. It has been a good learning experience as it shows me things that either one I don’t want in my business or two something I would like to change in the business world.
Besides the skills listed in my resume, I have good research skills for what needs are needed. For example being able to look up manuals or how-tos for maintaining equipment and such. Basically knowing how to use all of the available tools at ones disposal. I also have data entry skills with not just Microsoft Office but also knowledge and skills using OpenOffice and LibraOffice. I’m also a very good team player and I like to push other to work as a team. I do what it takes to get things done but in a safe and efficient matter.
So here is my web site running skills. These are the web site I run besides this one

Well, I have been having a hell of a time with school let alone sitting at my computer to try and get things done for whatever project I have. I haven’t worked on any of my music, any of the apps/software working on. Basically, all of my computer. Damn fucking FedEx hitting my car and totaling it and giving me a lot of neck and back problems. Sorry for the language guys but my blog is uncensored so if you don’t like it you can leave LOL. Anyways the problem is siting for long periods of time, well sitting at all It seem to always have to move my legs or change my position. My chair is a piece of garbage with no support. U basically have a pillow, blanket, another smaller pillow for my lumbar area then a kind of pad. For those that don’t know I was hit by a Fedex van back in 2012 on Oct 20 eight days before my birthday, bastards. The driver had said to the state patrol he was going 60 mph. My car was parked on the side of the highway shoulder with my hazards on and was getting ready to get a hod of a tow truck and a ride to work when I saw in my review mirror a van swerving down the road and I was thinking in my head like what the fuck is this dumbass doing when then BAM and I was flung all around and every which way. Thankfully, I was still wearing my seat belt. As I looked to the side to see what just had happen I followed the van with my eye watching to see if it was going to stop as it did NOT seem so for a bit as I didn’t see the brake light for about 4-5 second or so then it finally stop. I was still in shock and I then realized what had happened and that I was hit on the gas tank side of my car and I freaked out, took seat belt off-man I hate remembering this-and crawled out the passager side. Long story short since then I have been going through a lot of treatment and extra bullshit that cause other problems. My own insurance company was a bunch of assholes too and did some pretty fucked up shit and I will be writing a review about them once I find a different insurance. I even had to stop treatment that was helping me get better.
Anyway, I been having problems completing my classes in my masters program at Colorado Technical University as due to the above mentioned. It sucks because I know I can do well as I maintained a 4.0 in most of my classes when I did my bachelors degree from the same school. It because I can’t sit for long periods of time and now I having vision problems due to my eye disease called Keratoconus which I had for quite some time but was diagnosed 8 years ago. Because of the accident I haven’t been able to afford eye care or to even get my eyes checked even though I got had got a job where I got more hours and higher wage but it was hard to even do that as I kept missing a lot of work. I wa sstill job hunting in the beginning as I was trying to get a job in my degree of study but stop searching after a while as I was missing a lot of work at my current job. I ended up getting fired and I haven’t been fired from a job in a long time. I have an eye appoint coming up so hopefully it helps then I can just focus on making sitting as comfortable as possible well I’m going to get going as I’m starting to have a hard time seeing my screen now and my low back is starting to hurt.
Talk to ya guy later. as you can see I don’t posted as much as I would like too due to the above LOL

Well it has been a while since I had last posted but I’ve been pretty busy lately and had a massive computer failure with my custom pc gaming PC. I will go into more details on that a bit later as soon as I get all the images of the new build. I will say I had to replace almost every single component but the tower case.
I also start my master program here on August 16, 2015 which I’m nervous and excited. I’ve been having to get some tests done before I start class but with the computer failure and still having a lot of issues with sitting for a long period of time. I haven’t even had a chance to look for grant and scholarships yet to try and get as mush of my schooling paid for. but that hasn’t happened yet. I also have to get a ergonomic chair with full support for my back as mentioned in a previous post I have upper and lower back issues from a car accident where I was hit by a FEDEx van at 60 mile per hour or at least that what the driver had said to the Sheriff that showed up to the accident scene. This happened in 2012 and sucks ass as I still have lots of problems because of this shit.
Sorry just frustrated with the situation.
Anyways, that kind of what has been going on. I will be posted about my computer build here soon as I have a bunch of image of my first computer rebuild. I had gutted everything out and got images of each.
Thanks for reading

So as mentioned my introduction post I’ve been dealing with a back/neck/spinal injury from a car accident I had got into back on Oct 20, 2012 which was 8 days before my birthday. So needless to say my birthday is sometimes hard to deal with as a lot of things that I like to do are limited and/or can’t even do anymore at this time.
Anyways, I’ve been dealing with this injury for a long time. I tried and have gone through multiple treatments and tried just about everything. I find that there are a few things that work but only work partly. When it comes down to I prefer to stay as holistic/natural as possible. But the problem with that is that most insurance companies don’t like stuff like chiropractic and massage therapy. Or acupuncture which I have not tried yet as I will most likely have to pay for it out of my pocket. I have done chiropractic and massage therapy which I had to stop because of reasons I’ve been advised not to discuss but I will say that my insurance company is covering my medical bills right now though some thing I had to have covered by Washington Apple Health. I will say I’m not happy with my insurance company. But that will be all I say at this time. I’m back into my chiropractic treatment again but I’m only able to afford once a week at this time as I’ve been paying for it out of my pocket. I’ve gone through multiple injections like nerve blocks and trigger point injections, a few different prescriptions but I would like to get off it as now it feel like a band-aide and I feel it is making symptoms worse and/or causing new ones. At this time I only take Nortriptyline 25mg nightly which is suppose to help me sleep which had done so in the beginning. I take a lot of herbal supplements like triphala power, turmeric to help with going to the bathroom and inflammation. This does help too. But I’ve also been doing a lot of research in to other alternative holistic healing methods.
So long story short I will say that at the current standing I have multiple bulging disc from my neck down to my lumbar area. There also a disc degeneration in the lumbar area and a facet degeneration in cervical spine. I also have an EMG coming up to see if I have any nerve damage and such.
I will say that today I’m having a bit of a hard time and it’s even hard to sit here and type this post. My pain scale is 7 and I feel really nauseated like I’m going to throw up.
Well thanks for reading though I don’t care if you read this or not. This blog is more for myself then anything.
