      Lately I've been a rather dreamy mood. Not in the sense that I'm lost in some fog of reverie, but rather that my life seems as though it's somewhat unreal. Although this is in no way a bad thing, I can't help help but feel somewhat tentative about it. In a way, I feel that the sense of unreality of it stems from a fear that it's all too good to be true. I will not, however, let my hesitation dictate my actions and prevent me from embracing my circumstances fully.

      Narcissism aside, I feel as though I've managed to scrounge a better lot in life than most. I'm in great overall health, have a loving and stable family who adores and supports me, and am in all confidence for the future. I have an interesting and exciting job that takes me all over the world, and I've managed to achieve self-sufficiency in my life. I read a study not too long ago that stated that the majority of Americans aged 28 and below are in some way financially dependent on their parents, either relying on them to cover bills of necessity or to provide them with a place to live. The fact that I've managed to, by age 24, achieve independence of my family and lay the foundation for my own family and future fills me with great pride and further confirms my conviction that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. I've managed to educate myself, both formally and informally, to a much greater degree than most of the people around me, and I have a stable life despite the pervasive uncertainty of this day in age. And this doesnt even cover the various and many moments in my life which are triumphs in and of themselves, the kind that every individual experiences which is unique to the individual.

      Is my life perfect? No, of course not. But I don't expect or want it to be. The older I get, the more conviction I have for believing that life is better because of the imperfection. A perfect life would be peaceful and stable no doubt, but it would be utterly void of any triumph or sense of accomplishment because anything of value would already be done. I have no interest in a perfect life.

      But most importantly, and what I think is the source of this dreamlike sense I'm currently feeling, is the metaphysical wellbeing I feel from knowing the love of someone I consider my superior in all regards. For that, I truely feel blessed. And being someone who does not believe in God or providence, I think that says a lot.

      I figure no one will read this due to my long absence, but what the hell. Nostalgia brought me back to update the world on my doings.

      Its been roughly two years since I was last on this site. I believe my last login time was Christmas of 2009. I dont have a real good reason for not being back on this site for so long except for having developed a lack of interest in the site. Those of you that became my friends on Facebook know that I hadn't abandoned the internet altogether, and maybe have kept up on my life through there. Or maybe not. I suppose that isn't important. What is, though, is that I've been feeling a touch of nostalgia from my days frequenting the site and have come back to see how it has been. I've had a lot of changes in my life since my last time here, so I figure I'll talk a little about them as my first order of business.

      1. ) My last entry briefly mentioned I had joined the Army. I'm still in and will be for some time more. It's been an amazing experience, although I do miss having facial hair. I spent a year living in South Korea fighting evil communists, and I may be heading to Afghanistan in December to battle evil Jihadis. All in all, I've enjoyed my time and view the whole thing as a great learning experience.

      2.) More importantly though, and where I suspect a lot of my nostalgia comes from, is that I'm currently engaged to marry another old site member. She isnt on here anymore, but you may remember her as "Amanda" and "Varitek". I love that woman to death. I can't help but everything has come full circle, and this seems to be my proof.

      3.) Currently I'm residing in Washington State, and I've become quite the outdoor enthusiast. It's a beautiful state, even with all the rain.

      That's all for now. Still living and loving life, and just as much of a cranky Viking as I've always been. Hopefully I'll catch you all up later. Vaya con diablos!

      1.) I'm done with College.
      2.) I joined the Army.
      3.) I am significantly less hairy than I once was.
      4.) No, I do not have pictures yet.
      5.) Yes, I am still awesome.
      6.) Iced Chai Tea fucking rocks.
      7.) Lucky.
      8.) I'm home on Christmas vacation right now.
      9.) I'll be returning to Arizona to resume my training after New Years.
      10.) Because every list should have this many.

      When I take my computer back with me hopefully I'll have some time to reconnect. Hopefully. I've missed you guys.

      So yeah, today I went out to do some white water rafting with the Outdoor Club here at my school. I was fun.

      For the most part, the rapids were of only moderate difficulty. But there were a couple of monster portions that beat the hell out of everyone, myself included. Had a close call at one point, but otherwise dominated those pesky water-type pokemonz. I even saved one of the girls from drowning when she wiped out on the final monster rapid.

      Is this awesome? y/n

      Basically, I've been busy as hell for the last year or so. Add to that my general apathy towards the Internet, and you get a long absence. I found myself involved in an intersteller war between a kingdom of cosmic space Vikings and an armada of Mutant Teletubbie Ninja Aliens. After a long campaign with much wailing, fornication, and clashing of guilded war shields, I have returned.

      Also, lots of drama that I don't feel like getting into.

      So yeah, hi again.

      Edit: I'm still busy, so my time is limited. But still.

    • So yeah,

      My only complaint: Am I the only one who thinks that Bale's Batman voice sounds like some kind of goofy Death Metal vocalist?

      Luke 2:1-20

      And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

      Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.â€Â
      And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
      “ Glory to God in the highest,
      And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!â€Â

      So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.†And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely[d] known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.
