4 months and 20 days

12 Aug

That’s exactly how long it’s been since I’ve updated this page. I won’t even begin to tell you how much has changed in my life since then.

I don’t just mean events, jobs, or relationships. I mean mindset, experiences, and emotional changes. My life is taking an interesting turn. Whether for the better or the worst remains to be seen.

It’s strange how so much can change in such a short span of time. So much has changed even in the last 3 weeks. Scary… But at the same time so exciting.

I think one of the worst things in life is if your life comes to a stand still and becomes stagnant. No change, nothing exciting to look forward to. Now THAT’S scary.

I think rambling is allowed for your first blog post in 4 months. Till next time.

Who wants a perfect life?

It’s the thought of imperfection that excites me.

Reflections

There comes a time in life… Where need to start following your brain, and stop following your heart.

There comes a time

3 Mar

Ever sit around talking to random people and it hits you. Like a baseball out of nowhere, it hits you so hard it knocks the living hell out of you. What are you doing? What are you doing in your life at this instant? Why are you doing the things you are doing?

This is not a midlife crisis. I’m only 24. Changes must be made.

Remnants of a simply soft meal…

Food! Glorious food…

7 Aug

Many things that we do in life, we take for granted. For instance… Breathing, smelling, being able to look around and see, to jump, to walk, to laugh. Many of these things we take for granted.

This week, I have learnt to appreciate the ability to EAT! I got my wisdom teeth removed on Wednesday, and have been unable to eat solid foods since then. MAN have I learnt to appreciate the ability to chew, savor foods, and then swallow! Having had to drink liquids for the last 4 days has been torture. All I can think of is solid foods that I want to eat!

When you’re hungry at work, all you need to do is go grab a snack at the gas station, and you’re good to go! When it has to be a soft food item, that greatly limits the number of things you can buy! If you really think about it, there’s not much out there for the toothless– especially if you want it to be tasty.

Maybe I should go into the soft foods business… I’ll make a lot of money selling to old people! Or people who don’t take care of their teeth. From now on, I’m going to make sure this never happens to me again. I will take SUCH good care of my teeth, they won’t even know what hit them!

10 days too late…

16 Apr

10 days too late… But not a minute too early. This post is to remember a good friend, co-worker, and person– Darrel Allen. It’s been a year since you died… And not a minute goes by without any of us thinking about you. I’m sorry I haven’t gone by to visit you in a year, but the next time I’m in San Antonio I promise I will drop by.

The world and the streets are not the same without you. When your name is brought up at our lunches, it always fills our faces with laughter and good memories. I dropped by the Westin today, and it reminded me of all the good times we had together. We miss you Darrel… Life is just not the same without you.

Xoxo,
