      Two Fridays ago I did something I never thought I'd do.  I ran 7+ miles.  I did this as the last leg of the Torch Run for the Special Olympics in our area.  There was one big ass hill, but after that it wasn't bad...and it was one of the coolest things I've ever done.  We ran the torch down the middle of the road and people were honking, waving, and filming us the entire time.  When we got to the stadium on Ft. Jackson the road was lined with the athletes cheering us on.  It absolutely warmed my old cynical heart.  I hope you all have an amazing week.


      Stay Awesome,

    • Huh? What happened?

      Well here's a little PSA.  After I completed the quarry run I was so pumped.  I hit the gym Monday, ran a 5k Tuesday at the Riverfront, and went to the gym Wednesday.  While working out Wednesday night I banged the ever-loving shit out of my head on a bar.  I felt shitty but thought it was from all the work i'd been doing.  Well Thursday I was nauseous, had a headache, and felt about a half a bubble off of plumb the entire day.  Coworkers convinced me to go to the doctor and guess what...mild Grade 2 concussion.  Not bad but close to being put on bed-rest in a dark room for a couple days (I really can't be alone with my thoughts that long).  So if you bang your noggin, and you don't feel ok after a few minutes please go get looked at.  


      Sincerely...with all the loves,


      Me

      Well I may have forgotten to mention that my Captain may have signed me up for a Quarry Crusher run.  All I can say is that I was told there would be no math.  It was supposed to be 3.7 miles round trip.  They're still digging tho so it turned out it was more like 4.2ish.  The downhill was fun, but the uphill made me want to just rollover and wait for the medic.  I finished the dang thing tho...53ish minutes later.  Honestly i wouldn't have done it or finished if it wasn't for my captain.  She's pretty freaking awesome.  I hope everyone has a glorious week.

      ok...it's been a month and I've actually been pretty consistent with my training. At least twice a week and three times this past week. Yayyyyyy me! Yesterday I did 3.5 miles with a little walking break in the middle. Given it wasn't a fast pace...~5mph...but it's the furthest..or is it farthest? Fartherest? Anyway..longest distance ever. So all in all...progress.  Stay tuned for more, until then...sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows to you all.

      I've been through a lot lately. In the last six months I've gotten 33 stitches in my hand, had my wife's business drop off, and my mom got sick and then died. I was in some dark places. Finally though I got mad enough at life to fight back at it. I've since decided to train for a half marathon, write the movie script I've had in my head for over a year, and teach myself to make movie props. The videos and content that RT produces definitely helped keep my mind distracted enough to get through the worst and motivate me to do my best. I hope that I can show up here after October 28th having completed a half marathon and at least a bad ass prop sword to strap across my back during it. Did I mention it was ass costume half marathon? Those assure my goals and if you've read this you have to help keep me accountable. Thanks...and love, peace, and bacon grease to you all.

      I was wearing a rooster teeth shirt at the gym last night and a buddy walks up and says. "I just saw the logo on the back of your shirt. Does it stand for cockbite?" Finally someone gets it.

      Have I been gone for a while. Being busy is a stupid excuse. Basically I suck. But remember that side business I talked about starting? Well it's been paying off and also keeping me way busier at home. My laptop is usually tied up doing design work so I don't have as much time to get on here and I haven't played a damn video game in about two months. That's going to change I promise. Oh and BTW I got flashbanged at training and lost some hearing in my left ear and there's a constant ring. Annoying to say the least. Anyway...sorry I've been gone so long guys. I'll try not to let it happen again.

      That's how much sleep I've had since 0800 Friday. I think I've gone beyond tired and caught what I'm pretty sure is my fourth wind. I just hope when the hallucinations kick in they're nice and fluffy and not scary and scaly.

      So my wife got an embroidery machine from a friend of hers for free because she had the idea to make customized dog beds and what not to sell at her grooming business. After trying to figure out how to use the thing to help her I discovered I could make patches with it. I have a buddy who sells patches online and I started making moral patches for him. Most are just text based and have nerd roots. Like ones that say BAZINGA!, I AIM TO MISBEHAVE, NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS, and the like..in the proper fonts. I kinda enjoy the design and creation of them. My ultimate goal is to make a patch for The Patch...because it would be soooo literal.

  • About Me

    Married to a great woman that lets me enjoy my hobbies without giving me crap about it. There is plenty of stress in my job and RVB and AH help to decompress when I get home. I'm not the greatest gamer but it is fun to play and not think about work, bills, or any other adult stuff and be a kid again. Remember the difference between want and need and you'll be satisfied.

        Hey girl. I wasn't able to make it this year. The money I had saved up for it went to our dog's vet bills and surgery. I hope you had a great time, and I missed you guys.

        I have lived in WY, MT, and traveled all over the place. I can show you the real part of the west. With cows. South Dakota isn't my fave, but the Black Hills are pretty. Sorta.

        It went well. The cyst he had to take out was probably about the worst part with recovery. The nose is still tender but the splints are out. I can't blow my nose for another week, but I'm already breathing better than I have in the last several years. Thanks for checking in on me!

        I've got to say it was the greatest trip I've taken so far. With everything I did and saw it would take a lot to beat it. I highly recommend it.

        I'm pretty simple really. I love Rooster Teeth and have started getting more active on the community side of it. I'm not a great gamer but I do enjoy playing. I've been in police work for almost 16 years and I've seen a lot of crazy (sometimes disturbing) things. I grow several different super hot peppers and I used to draw a good bit when I was younger and had more time. Seeing the things people can do on here is making me want to explore my creative side some more. My wife lets me play my games although she doesn't like to. I also like to cook (mainly grilling), workout, and I've started making some of my own clothes (sweatshirts, stocking caps, etc...). If you're still reading this I applaud you. One last thing I don't neg mod people. Ever. I try to be more positive and ignore the trolls. So if you find any of this the least bit interesting welcome to being my friend. smiley8.gif
