I’m getting ready to go on a hike.

Here’s proof.

Speaking of stuff nightmares are made of, I was listening to music on Spotify yesterday and decided to bring my laptop downstairs with me while I did my workout on my elliptical. I wanted to take a picture to remember this day forever and look at that creepy smile.

This is an old friend of mine who used to play bass in my old metalcore band called Pass the Burden. Not only is he a badass bass player, but he’s now an incredible acrobatic ninja set to one of my favorite songs by Death Grips. This is cool.

Things I learned on my walk today…

  • It takes me a half hour to walk to my house to my old school
  • It takes an hour to walk back to my house after walking a complete circle around it.
  • There was everything from broken beer bottles, canisters of eggs and an opened pregnancy test box on the side of the road while I walked.
  • Walking on my subdivison’s main road felt like a mini road trip. I’ve lived in this neighborhood eleven years and I’ve never walked those roads.
  • This experience was made better by Dan Deacon’s newest album “America”. Holy shit is it good.
  • While I walked on the side of the high school, I realized I hadn’t been in that area since 2006…then it occured to me it’s been six years since high school and I’ve since graduated college with my BA
  • I don’t think I want it to turn fall. I love it when the sun is beating down on my face. Yes it’s extremely hot but I’ll always be a summer guy.
  • I’m determinded to lose 30 more pounds by the end of the year.

So I downloaded Endomondo for my phone and its been great using it with my phone. I never realized when I do my certain hike trail twice that I’m burning over a thousand calories. Feels good man. Felt so good this morning I took a picture of myself a sweaty thousand calories less.
Yeah I get up and run around for an hour. How do you spend your mornings??

Twenty four and stuff.

I can’t believe I’m already twenty four. Like, where the hell did time go? So 2011 has been a pretty decent year in the fact that I feel better about myself. I started the year off with a goal to feel better physically as I should mentally. I feel like I’m getting to the home stretch probably on both accounts. I wanted to lose weight this year and that’s exactly what I did, roughly fourty pounds to be exact. I was never a “fat” guy but I had gained a fair share of weight since my explosive break up with what’s her name back in the fall of 2009. I just never recovered from that mentally at times and so I just let myself go I suppose.

Well, I changed that. I bought myself an elliptical and I worked out on it as much as I could as well as watching what I was eating. I look and feel so much better than I did say eight months ago, it’s a path I hope to continue throughout the months and years to come.

This is also a pretty interesting day in the fact that this is my last semester in college…well for awhile maybe. I graduate Webster University this December and I’m so glad it’s about over. While I won’t be technically graduating since I’ll be doing an intership next spring, it will be nice to know that these are the last of college courses I will be taking…unless I go for my masters. It’s been a long educational road but man, am I glad it’s about over with. My first class on Mondays and Wednesdays is around 8 in the morning and it sure was a little tough to get out of bed at 6 in the morning today. Especially with it being the first day and all, but thankfully I’ll be getting out around 10 for the first 8 weeks until my term 2 classes start so that will be a nice change of pace. I know I will miss summer though.

Speaking of summer, one of the best movies of the summer has to go to Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I loved the early originals back when I was a kid and this was one of the summer movies that mixes a fantastic and engaging story along with great character developement and action. Everything just fit perfectly.

So Happy Birthday to me. Someone should get me this cake…

I’ve been doing a lot of hiking lately. Got a new pair of headphones which makes looking up at stuff like this even more amazing. Enjoying this weather while I can and keeping in shape while doing it.
