song playing in my head as of late:

dream – shawty is a ten
ryan leslie – break this down
chris brown – electric guitar
cas haley – lost
311 – beautiful disaster
kanye west – goodnight

i can’t believe that i’ve had 25 of these things already.  i know a lot of people, including me, say that it’s all downhill from here.  what is there to look forward to now?  i now hit the age that allows me to rent a car and claim lower car insurance.  how sweet it is, right?  hell yes.  but honestly, this is just another chapter to put behind me and look ahead.  i think it’s nothing but uphill from here.

it’s times like this where you have to learn that you try to look to the top at your jobs.  find all the missing puzzle pieces that make you life complete and call each piece an accomplishment.  more travels.  more food.  more memories.  more of everything.

but for now, it’s time to enjoy the rest of the weekend.  also find time to study and run.  i say after october, things should mellow out until the next agenda hits.  who woulda thought july was that busy of a month?

my guys. if you’ve seen this show, then you’re cool.  just another one of those yuppy shows that sorta involves this 20-30 something group that has a typical “peach pit” or “max’s” or “central perk” type of hangout where everyone meets up when they are free.  it’s almost like college how there was always a common area where everyone met when they weren’t at class.  this show also relates to how i met your mother too.

well there’s an episode where one of the guys gets hired at another friend’s company as a mail clerk who also shares duties as the copy guy.  he gets called the “copy slave.”    i have a job duty that falls into this catergory as well.  i got asked by a coworker how i got stuck with this job and honestly, i don’t know.  it was sorta just thrown upon me.  ………how gracious i am for that.

in other news, i think i’m gonna end up doing the austin nike humanrace10k.  another coworker yesterday suggested that since i did a 5k already, for me to invest in training for a 10k because he said it’s redundant to train your body for the same thing?  to make the challenges more exciting and he made it sound easily doable as he did his first HALF MARATHON last january.   and all this because he saw my watch…

i sweat this watch gets people talkin… “so you’re a runner” “what kinda watch is that?” “hey is that a new band kinda thingy?”  the last question comes from wearing the head of the watch on the inside so the other side displays a nike logo.  but what i’m saying is that this watch gets you thinking you gotta keep running too.  the fact that is shows your week total and when you log on the nike site, it makes a nike “wii” type character showing what shape your in.  it’s like a freakin giga-pet basically but you have to run to keep it happy.  so that’s cool.  here’s to better health.

and to music.  new inspiration is ryan leslie.  watching his videos on youtube, he seems to be somewhat a genius…literally.  harvard graduate at 15.  just watching his work ethic in the studio is pretty inspirational, not to mention hype.  it comes off kinda cocky but i think that’s what makes it have it’s edge on his sound.  i get like that when i would do stuff just to hype myself up, so no big deal.

he’s just a sick individual.

anyway, i turn 25 tomorrow…or in a couple of hours.  a quater of a century has passed and so have the years of my life.  here’s to enjoying the rest of that century.  just call me QUARTACENT.  it’s INCREDIBLE. *cue jay-z hova music*

i forgot what got me into it during college. i went to the driving range a couple times with my dad when i was younger but i hated going because it was hard. something about the motion, making contact, and constantly wanting to perfect the swing even more that keeps you wanting to keep practicing. i can now see why people like to do it during the weekend or why it becomes such a big thing for people to do as “business meetings” during the week.

so let’s see where my range for each club should be….

taken from golf.about.com

Club Men Women
Driver 200-230-260 150-175-200
3-wood 180-215-235 125-150-180
5-wood 170-195-210 105-135-170
2-iron 170-195-210 105-135-170

7-iron 120-140-150 65-90-120
8-iron 110-130-140 60-80-110
9-iron 95-115-130 55-70-95
PW 80-105-120 50-60-80
SW 60-80-100 40-50-60

that’ll help me keep in mind how far i should be focusing on.

clemshaw on youtube has become my new best friend for advice also.  pinemeadow golf is a blessing in disguise for clubs/equipment that anyone at any level should try out.  and the money that i have spent (wasted) on golf stuff already only gets me more excited about getting out there.  my toys:

and hopefully soon…

and in addition to that, kicking in the running habit takes time too.  5K to 10K to half to full marathon?  pshh…  just fun while the hype is high.  5K is doable tho.  keeps me active and hopefully lose the extra weight i gained when i was out working in mississippi.  :)

hi.  you down?

Ou Serez-Vous le 31/08/2008 ?

and to the 5Kers that finished this past saturday, it only feeds the hype even more.  08.31.2008 could be a possibility.  but for now, it’s who to contribute to…parrots or an orphanage on aug. 9.  haha

after cavy told me that he saw him live, i got back into his stuff looking up some of his performances and this rendition is just ridiculous.  he’s like a reggae adam lavigne on the chubby side.  haha  regardless, his voice is unique and pure.  good entertainment.  so lucky you got to see it live with a small crowd.  those are the best.  cheers to live music!

happy 4th, everyone.

All Sides

should be good.  music is back to a point where every genre has something to prove.  it breaks so many barriers and tells so many stories of our times.

anyway, been busy and hadn’t had much time to fill this place with pictures, music, stories, rants, yada yada.  will sure do that soon.  here’s to a struggle of finishing a 5K on friday.  *fingers crossed*

edit: so i made time and POOF, there it is.
