Butterflies

I honestly have no idea where to start. My life is changing so much, and yeah it’s quick, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I met my future wife just last July not having a single clue what she would one day mean to me. It’s May now and were engaged and set to be married early October! Her name is Britiani, but I call her beautiful. She is gorgeous inside and out. The answer to my prayers. I’m by far the luckiest guy I know. Everything just feels so right and is falling into place.
“Things get harder at their summit” -that was a fortune I got the other day at lunch. I laughed it off at first, and then I pondered on it for a while. Marriage is one of the greatest blessings in life, and some might argue that it is the greatest thing someone can do in life. Sounds a lot like the summit of life, doesn’t it? If that’s the case what happens now? Is this really as hard as things get? I mean yeah it can be overwhelming, sometimes scary even to think about all the responsibilities of starting a whole new life with the person you plan on supporting and taking care of for the rest of your life, but all in all I think I feel just fine. People ask if I’m nervous. I smirk and say no, but I’m really not lying. I never stopped. I get nervous every time I see her. I cant really explain the feeling, but I still get butterflies in my stomach.
There are so many things on my plate, and I don’t know which one to take a stab at first. I have big dreams and high hopes for an extremely bright future. I think life is like a puzzle with no borders, with open spaces for endless opportunities. Its weird, I used to think that opportunities were handed out and it was our job to act on them, but I’m starting to realize that we are all responsible for creating our own opportunities and then taking full advantage.
To wrap things up, I’m extremely excited for the next 5 months to see what happens and to experience all the changes and new parts of life that come with getting married. I’ve never been happier and it’s only going to get better from here.
Babe I love you, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together. You’re my world, now and forever.

Comeback Kids

Apparently I’m not the kind of person that my friends would think had a blog lol When I tell them I do they look at me funny!
It’s been months since I posted anything, but I saw my brother post up so I figured it was time to get back in it. Got a lot of big decisions to make not really sure how too. Trying to decide where I want to be with school and work is difficult. I’m a 19 year old college student living on paychecks week to week to make phone payments and make my car payments. It’s difficult because it hinders my ability to have extra spending money for the things I want. Shoes and clothes are nice, but I’m really craving some more ink! I’ve got three or four more since I’ve last posted. My inner forearms are done and read “Rise and Rise again, Until Lambs become Lions.” I then got my right bicep done with an icthus ( Jesus fish). I also have my feet done, I got the trinity on my left foot and the words Veritas and Aequitas, meaning truth and justice down the sides. My next move I think is to get the Virgin Mary on my right arm as the beginning stages of my arm sleeve. I need money though! I think I’m gonna try to to start posting more provided I have enough material.


New Tattoos!!

I finally got them! Got them done last night. The guy did a really good job. Place is called Raw Ink in Ada, OH. Thanks a bunch to Dave for the great work. ┬áHere’s some pictures:

Made up my mind

So, I changed my mind. I think I’m gonna get the forearm piece and the ‘make believe’ wrist pieces. They’ll be coverable with long sleeves. And working in a computer related field will most likely involve air conditioning so I think I’ll be okay with long sleeves for working. By the time I get past being okay with it, either tattoos will be more acceptable in the working society or I’ll be up high enough in the system, making enough money, that it won’t matter. Just because I have the tattoos is no reason to respect me any less if I’ve earned it.


Why? And what does it mean?

Ever have a dream where you’re hanging out with a friend and she’s in a relationship with someone but the two of you end up kissing? Not like an intentionally planned kissed. Like one of those moments where your eyes just meet and then the kiss just slowly happens? At least right after that I remember apologizing because I knew she was in a relationship. But it was like time froze and we were in a completely different world of our own. Then some time had passed and we were hanging out again, I believe it was the same day, but now two more of our friends were there with us in what seemed like my dining room in my house. Our other two friends are in a relationship together. I don’t remember what we were doing but I think something happened to my friend that is in a relationship with another guy. I can’t remember what, if she like stubbed her toe or something. I just remember her making it into my arms and I just held her for a bit. Then there was a switch in this part where originally we were standing but then somehow we were sitting on the dining room floor. Our other two friends were sitting at the table. Then, as I was holding her, about to help her get up from the floor, she leaned and kissed me again, but I distinctly remember not kissing her back this time. Then there was another lapse in the dream and she was out of the room and I’m still sitting on the dining room floor with our friends at the table. This time they saw the kiss. And the only thing I remember them asking me was, “Why would you do that to [insert friends boyfriends name]?” I remember replying, kind of harshly I think, “I didn’t. If you didn’t notice, I didn’t actually kiss her back!” Then I got up and walked out of the room, a little aggravated at my friend who asked that question. Then the dream ended. I don’t know how to take it or what it means. I would never try to break up my friends relationship when she is happy with it currently. I don’t know. I have a feeling I’m going to be doing a lot of thinking for a while. Just what I needed. Not. What could it all mean? That’s my only question. I will admit that I do have some feelings for this friend and sometimes I think of how it could be if we were together. At least I don’t have a lot of work to do seeing as I’ll probably be pondering over this for a while.


Snow On Our Blog!!

Hey everyone, it’s snowing on our blog page! Those of you that are seeing this post somewhere other than our site should come check it out. I’m not that much of a fan of Winter itself because I hate the cold and ice and what not, but I still think snow can be a really pretty site during this time of year. If you have any great photos of snow that are just really captivating post them on your blog or Facebook page or whatever you have to post them on. If you don’t have somewhere cool to put them feel free to send them to us at brothers.northerntsunami@gmail.com and we’ll post them up on our page for you.

It’s getting close to Christmas and Christmas break from school so we want to wish everyone and very merry Christmas (or very happy holidays). Enjoy the season and cherish the time you have with your families. ­čÖé


Love

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.”
— 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

I really like this passage. It just always makes me think about the things or people I’ve had, have and would like to have in my life. And I don’t regret any of it. Somewhere along the course of life, you learn about yourself and realize there should never be regrets, only a lifelong appreciation of the choices you’ve made. I’d rather have a life full of mistakes than a heart full of regret. So I try to live everyday to the fullest and have fun in everything I do. I try not to let things upset me or get me down and just move passed them. Tonight, we’re going out to play bingo! It’s going to be a blast. And so with that I’ll leave you with this:

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because┬áthose who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
