      So.. it's been a while since i've updated anything on here... so here's the skinny.

      Got my truck stolen.. and she never returned... yes yes it sucks. Though my insurance gave me quite a large settlement for it.. so i replaced it with my new vehicle:

      1995 BMW M3


      Not much else is going on.. just working out a lot.. working and living life.

    • Tuna Trip 2009!

      9 years ago

      Plazma

      Few friends I've made all pitched in and got boat chartered for a 2 day fishing trip in San Diego / Mexico. This is the first time i've ever been on a boat that far in the ocean as well as first time I've ever been ocean fishing. The experience itself was mind blowing.. I lost all concept of time, space, or reality while out at sea.. I'm even finding now it's a tad hard to adjust to the concept of time.. literally it was like I was in a different realm beyond this one. First 8 hours were kinda rough.. half sea sick and I could barley stand or walk.. but once that passed I managed to catch 3 large tuna.. 1 albacore and 2 skipjack. They ranged form 15-25lbs.. and fought like they were 15-25 tons... i'm still sore.

      Yes! I got pics!

    • Weight Loss Milestone

      10 years ago

      Plazma

      So i figured.. since this nice round number is a bit of a milestone in my weight loss journey, I would share it with everyone. The first thing that got me motivated was I met my Dr. who sat me down and explained to me why i needed to do this.. in the past being the fat kid.. all Dr.'s would be heartless and say "your fat, loose weight" and then send me to a dietitian that is generally as overweight or more overweight than I was. Not that there is anything wrong with that per say, but it's just that much harder to take them seriously.

      So once my Dr. helped me understand things.. things clicked.. and i instantaneously began eating better.. that was the big start of it.. and to this day i eat WAY better than i used to. I rarely drink soda, avoid fast foods most of the time, and really portion myself (this by far was/is the hardest thing for me). In November of 2008, i started back into martial arts and now am 1/2 to a black belt.. the level of training has helped me by leaps and bounds with weight loss and confidence (plus increased my metabolism greatly as well).

      So anyway.. here are the results.. before/after...enjoy:

      Eh haven't updated in a while.. but now i have some semi cool news..

      Since August of 2008 i've started loosing weight.. started with a MUCH better diet.. and then in Nov i got back into martial arts.. and am still doing well with it and loving every minute of it.

      I lost 4lbs in May.. so that brings my total to................47lbs lost since August 08... my personal Goal weight is 240lbs.. which now isn't too far off.. just another 4-5 months...

      Aug 08 - 6'3 311lbs
      Jun 09 - 6'3 264lbs

      I go on vacation in 3 weeks to see my family for the first time in 6-7 months.. they haven't seen me since Dec.. and i only lost about 27lbs then.. my goal before i go back is to have lost 50lbs.... just because 50 is a round..sexy number.

      So for a while.. i've had feelings for a special friend of mine.. and I was a bit worried about things.. so i never told her. Recent events happened and she met an awesome young lady.. and had been spending some time with her. Of course at first, for about a week I was into a spirialing depression over it.. then i finally got the courage to talk to her about it.

      We ended up talking for about 2 hours about everything.. and how i felt.. and to my surpise .. she was as suprised about it as I was.. she never really expected to meet anyone like her.. and due to our personalities being so similar.. we both want the same things out of a relationship.. but over time if we were to be together.. things would probably fall apart.. we have such a great friendship.. and we'd both hate to ruin that.. so i'm ok with things as they are...but a twist!

      I met her friend last night and we all hung out, had dinner.. the works.. and it was very amazing and fun. This girl she has met.. is quite literally everything I want in a woman.. she's BEAUTIFUL as ever.. extremely thoughtful, and just.. has a good personality that simply makes me melt....so sadly while I am extremely happy for them both (they compliment each other so very well).. I feel a great sense of depression and sorrow... the reason being is i'm quite jealous.. why can't i meet a woman such as her.. so beautiful on the inside and out.. and compliments me so perfectly... It's also a little frustrating that she can pick up such cute and awesome girls and I can't even get the trashy nasty ones to give me a 2nd glance..

      Maybe i should stop looking for it.. maybe i need to stop caring.. but.. that's easier said than done.. it's not something I can just drop and let go.. not easily.... and everytime i do or have been able to.. i always end up this way again.. so who's to say it won't happen again?

      It's been a while since i've updated this.. been really busy with work and other things.. living life .. all that and working with some hobbies i haven't touched in a while. My friend and I were having a conversation about elephants and why she likes them so much.. she said something that inspired me to do this.. and well here it is.. took me about 1 month or so.. with drawing/designing/building 1 and fucking it up and building another... (Sorry about the bad pictures).

    • Achievment Unlocked (New CCNP)

      10 years ago

      Plazma

      So after several months of grueling labs and study I passed the final test and earned my CCNP. For those of you who aren't sure what this is - CCNP

      It was a long road.. and I wish to pursue my CCIE in the coming years.. but I realize now that I'm no where close to that level.. but hey it gives me something to keep striving for.

      So after that I've taken a break from a lot of th studies and labs.. I'm going out tonight with some friends and I'll probably relax for a little while. .then I'll get back to it and look into other things.

    • Mini Life Update (Because Kari asked)

      10 years ago

      Plazma

      I don't really talk much about myself on here.. but I figured I would drop an update. Work is going pretty well.. I had some issues this week with me getting involved in something I shouldn't have been.. dealing with finance and leasing of my hardware.. but it's resolved for the moment and calmed down a lot. I've been studying for some more Cisco stuff.. and have for the past few months.. going for my CCNP.. I passed the 1st test roughly 1 month ago after 2+ months of studying.. and then I passed the 2nd one last week .. I've got 2 more before I can call myself a CCNP. Once that's out of the way.. I will probably start looking for something more in network engineering as that's where I want to go.. and the job I have probably won't last but another 2 years tops (in it's current form). It's turning into something that I really don't want to do.. I'm a technical hands on guy.. unless im building something, designing something, fixing something, or destroying something in my daily job.. then I'm not that happy.. The job is cool though, since im literally one of the only server/IT guys on sight.. I fix a lot of things that should be done by other people.. but at the same time, my boss and others don't know what's going on so they don't really bother me or nag me about what I'm doing.

      As for personal life.. meh I don't have much of one.. I hang out with my ex roomates from time to time, but mostly I do stuff alone.. Last weekend though I went up with my ex roomates to Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff.. it was AWESOME..!

      Oh, my questions are usually not too complex.
      More along the lines of, "why no work?"
      Or "bad phones bad. Make better?"

      Or just the standard, "what's our ETR, can you write out the explanation of what went wrong so I don't have to explain it to people and how are we going to guaranteee that never happens again?"

      I appreciate the comment, and it seems everyone has had a similar experience, with varying results. What I need help with is getting over it. I'm having trouble meeting people because I'm stuck on someone else! I can't tolerate the details, though I know he's dating. and that's affecting our friendship. smiley2.gif

      they poor kids can hemorrhage, which is shock from losing too much blood - babies have only 300 mL of blood! so it makes total sense any relatively minor blood loss in baby ain't that minor.

      lol and in california, where everything starts, older boys are not suing parents who opted for them to have circumcisions on grounds that it takes away feeling from sex later on in life.

      lol at california.

      But in the end TV shows don't make it because very few people watch them, or not enough to make up for the cost of the show. They really did try with Arrested Development, they gave it three seasons when most shows with that budget and those ratings would have been canceled much sooner. Executives are mostly heartless, but there just giving us what we want.

      It's just amazing to me that more people watch shows like According to Jim and two-and-a-half men as opposed to Arrested development. Oh well, I guess for most people sharp satirical wit make brain hurt like ow.
