I know I haven’t posted anything this month, simply because I had nothing to say, but this was worth posting about. This guy is a complete and total badass and everyone needs to know his story and recognize him for the awesome badassedness that he emanates. Be sure to read the main story and the side text. This is a great story.
Nothing going on with me really. Same old boring life with no direction. I realized today as I was browsing through the personal ads on Craig’s List just how little desire I have to make any new friends. People have been a constant source of disappointment for me. I give everything to a friendship and they either just take, hurt me personally, hurt me financially or any combination of the above. I just don’t have the energy for it anymore.
Other than that, I’ve started weight lifting again and getting back into shape. It was well past time for me to be doing that. It’s funny how with weight lifting, you actually gain weight before you lose it, because your muscles get more dense and you add to them at a faster rate than you start to lose the fat. I can visibly see I’ve lost a considerable amount of fat already, but I’ve gained four pounds or so over where I started because of the muscle. It’s weird when you’re doing this. You can’t watch the scale. You just have to look at how you’re changing physically and ignore the scale entirely. So far it’s been going really well. I had the muscle base already after years of weight lifting. I’m just getting it back to where it was when I stopped. I’m not sure why I ever did stop really. I think it was a combination of depression and laziness on my part, but I’m back to it now and it feels great.
This weekend is my 13th anniversary. The one bit of luck I’ve had in my life is to be married to someone I absolutely love and who is an almost perfect personality match for me. Sharon and I are and always have been best friends, and having her in my life has made it worth living. I hope she knows how much I love her.
Anyway, that’s it for now. I’ll post again when I have something interesting to say.(Current Mood: tired)
