I am excited to start my new adventure I am doing something called the Dragon Boat race here in seattle, practice starts this friday and the race is next month. http://www.seattledragonboat.com/ I am back to running again and working out, injuries just keep piling up..ok so i am lying, i have just been lazy this month. :)
On other news I have been in lots of debate as to wether I will stay in seattle or leave, I love what this place offers, but I am tired of fake people. I live in a frat house pretty much, Co-ed and i love it, except the other guy named steve in the house, he has pretty much been acting like i am a threat and he is trying to practically screw every gal in the house, the funny thing is that i am smart enought to not screw my roommates, yeah some are hot, but once i cross that line i can never bring a date in the house. So there was one night where steve, hillary and i were on the couch relaxing and he was trying to get all over her and leaned over and said out loud to me hey "what was that girl you spent the night with last night" at this point I made him look stupied. This little ankle biter kept taking little cheap shots at me so one night I came home after a few drinks, and called him out when he was cuddling with a different gal of the house, he got pissed and got up and wanted to fight me, I made him lose his temper in front of the all the gals of the house, it was priceless. After I stood up and said I dont think you want to fight me, thats not a smart move, since then he has been on edge around me......lol Now I can be sitting on the couch with one of the gals of the house and he trys to squeeze between me and the other person and cuddle with whoever is next to me, very insecure in my opinion but oh well, i am use to men being intimidated by me. In my personal opinion seattle men are pathetic.

The is how I personally feel about the whole micheal jackson death and all not saying he was a bad man but that america has its priorities all wrong!!
THIS WAS WRITTEN BY A SOLDIER IN IRAQ.
Okay, I need to rant.
I was just watching the news, and I caught part of a report on . As we all know, Jackson died the other day. He was an
entertainer who performed for decades. He made millions, he spent
millions, and he did a lot of things that make him a villian to many
people. I understand that his death would affect a lot of people, and
I respect those people who mourn his death, but that isn't the point
of my rant.
Why is it that when ONE man dies, the whole of America loses their
minds with grief. When a man dies whose only contribution to the
country was to ENTERTAIN people, the Amercian people find the need to
flock to a memorial in Hollywood , and even Congress sees the need to
hold a "moment of silence" for his passing?
Am I missing something here? ONE man dies, and all of a sudden he's a
freaking martyr because he entertained us for a few decades? What
about all those SOLDIERS who have died to give us freedom? All those
Soldiers who, knowing that they would be asked to fight in a war,
still raised their hands and swore to defend the Constitution and the
United States of America . Where is there moment of silence? Where
are the people flocking to their graves or memorials and mourning over
them because they made the ultimate sacrifice? Why is it when a
Soldier dies, there are more people saying "good ridence," and "thank
God for IEDs?" When did this country become so calloused to the
sacrifice of GOOD MEN and WOMEN, that they can arbitrarily blow off
thier deaths, and instead, throw themselves into mourning for a "Pop
I think that if they are going to hold a moment of silence IN CONGRESS
for Michael Jackson, they need to hold a moment of silence for every
service member killed in Iraq and Afghanistan . They need to PUBLICLY
recognize every life that has been lost so that the American people
can live their callous little lives in the luxory and freedom that WE,
those that are living and those that have gone on, have provided for
them. But, wait, that would take too much time, because there have
been so many willing to make that sacrifice. After all, we will never
make millions of dollars. We will never star in movies, or write hit
songs that the world will listen too. We only shed our blood, sweat
and tears so that people can enjoy what they have.
Sorry if I have offended, but I needed to say it. Feel free to pass
this along if you want.
Remember these five words the next time you think of someone who is
serving in the military;
"So that others may live..."
Only two people have ever effectively given their lives for you.
Jesus Christ and The American G.I.
One died for your sins, the other died to give you freedom.
