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.

First Day of Fall Semester

So it’s the first day of classes for fall semester. I’m determined to get back in shape this year. Up and out of bed at 7:30, went for a 30 minute run, came back to the apartment and showered. Then I had myself a healthy breakfast and chilled in my room, listening to some music. After that I got ready and went over to work for about a couple of hours before my first class. 11:00 AM, first class of the day, Intro to Sociology out at the front of campus. It seems like it will be a fun and interesting class. Then I had Elementary Arabic 1 after that at 12:00 PM. That will definitely be an interesting class, possibly one of my harder classes this semester. Back to work for another hour and then I had Programming Languages at 2:00 PM. I have a feeling that it will be quite possibly my most boring class this semester and I may or may not hate every minute of it. Finally after that I get a break which consisted of calling a faculty member to find out when I could stop in to their office to take a look at a computer issue they are having. Talked to my boss for a few minutes and then I eventually got a late lunch and went back to my room to listen to some music and chill out. After relaxing for a few hours I went to my 7:00 PM Digital Photography class. Seems like it could be neat, learning about the progression of photography since it started and how to compose photos. To end the day I went straight from Digital Photography to watch the comedians that came in to start the school year. They were alright, but I think that by far the final comedian, Geoff Keith, was absolutely amazing. If you’ve never heard of him you should check out some of his standup. Amazing. And now I’m chilling in my room getting ready to go to bed since I have to get up to cover someone’s shift at work. All in all today was a pretty decent day, of course being my last first day of classes helped a little. 🙂


Time To Start Working Out

I’ve decided it’s time to start working out again. Especially now that it’s starting to get colder out. And of course most girls like a guy with a toned body. Lol. I know that’s bad but oh well, I’d prefer to be toned anyway because I’d like to look like that. I’d feel more comfortable with myself and may even be a more outgoing person. So I’m gonna start working on it now. I can do push ups, dips, possibly pull ups, and ab work without even going out of my room. Then I’ll add a fair amount of running to that and hopefully I’ll be well on my way. Occasionally I’ll have to add some trips to a weight room, but for now I’ll start with the basics. The hard part will be staying motivated. But there are some rather cute girls around campus, so maybe that’ll help me stay motivated to workout. 😉

Well enough writing, time to get started. 🙂


It’s Been So Long

Dang. You never realize how out of shape you are until you start playing a cardio-intensive sport again. Went and played ultimate with our ONU Darkside Ultimate Frisbee team last night. I am beat this morning to say the least. And to add to that, ultimate is going to be Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. If I do soccer as well, it is going to be on Monday and Wednesday. So in case you didn’t catch that, on Monday’s I’ll have ultimate at 4:00 pm followed immediately by soccer at 6:00 pm. Then on Wednesday I will have ultimate from 4:00 – 5:00 pm followed again by soccer at 6:00 pm. I’m asking myself, “Should I try to do them both? Is it going to kill me?” Lol. I think I’m going to give both of them a try to see how it goes. At least I’ll be getting whipped into shape pretty quick, which is what I want. 🙂

Let me know what you think. Leave a comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear your feedback.
