I just ordered my books for school.

165.00, but I'm actually making a little money on the deal. I can't believe I'm actually doing it. I'm actually a student again!! My new years resolutions are working!!!!

It's creeping up on me.

(calm before the big storm last week)
I turn 25 officially tomorrow morning at 6:43am. I hope to be on the beach running and rocking out to U2 at that point. Oh, my god I can't believe I'm almost 25.

In other news, the two classes I tried to get at Casper College, (the only two that aren't electives), accepted me. So, that means after this summer, I'm loading up on easy electives and I'm rockin a diploma. It's about time I got my......... associates. Soon enough though, it'll be a bachelor's degree. Hopefully I can get that in Dublin or in Denver. Either way it will be an adventure. :)

I decided not to get Zangetsu because a. It was too expensive, and b. I'm actually finally saving for something. I'm not at liberty to talk about it. It's between me and Bea what exactly I'm saving for, but it's something big, and something I want, and it's not a motorcycle. I'm gonna finance the bike. :)

Anyway, I'm doing much better than I expected, and right now, life is absolutely perfect. I can't wait until September, and January. All is going great! I don't have much to write about except that tomorrow is my birthday and it's bittersweet.

But I'm gonna buy my books tomorrow for school, and hopefully be able to fly Kenny. It's been hard to find a decent spot at the beach because tourists/people are idiots and think it's okay to walk under a trick kite. Duh, it CAN HIT YOU ON THE HEAD!!!! In fact, i might just HIT YOU ON THE HEAD! Anyway, that's all for now. I start my new job on thursday, and I'll keep everyone updated on how that goes.

Heads or Tails?

I know that my birthday is coming up soon, and I know that my parents already have what I'm getting pretty much set, and I don't think I'll be getting much outside of that, which is totally fine because I've been spoiled with two Nascar races and a trip to Denver.. So in order to kinda treat myself to a birthday gift (since getting a license was kinda squelched) I was thinking about making a purchase to sortof reward myself for getting back on track or actually starting track with my life. It's kinda silly, and it's $65.00, but it is something I have interest in. I have found it difficult, after living so far under my means for such a long time, to justify buying anything for myself. I never just buy something because I want it, I have to "NEED" it. I bought a Vinyl tori record in Denver, and felt very guilty about it because I didn't need it. But wanted it. It was 18 dollars, but to me it was a HUGE purchase.

I couldn't make up my mind on this particular thing because it is such a large expense (again, it is $65.00), and soon I will be needing clothes and shoes for my new job. I can't justify it, but I collect them, and want it. It has no practical use, like the record, except to look nice and make me feel good when I hold it.

This is Zangetsu (the sword's name). This is Zangetsu released into Bankai.
And unless you're an avid watcher of Bleach, you probably don't know what that is. But here is what you need to know about Zangetsu Bankai, he is 68 inches long, heavy, and has a commanding presence. I love this sword, and it's the next cheapest one I can buy from the sword that I really want, which is Hadhafang from LOTR, as well as Aragorn's hunting knife. Those are like 300.00 and there is no way in high tippy hell I could justify buying one of those.

And for someone like me who hasn't had much to live on for the last 5 years, this would be a pretty big spendy mcgee, but I think it could be a happy birthday gift (to me, from me) that is cheaper than a 400.00 helmet, or a $6000 bike. In order to make the decision, I flipped a coin. Heads I'd get it, tails I'd wait. I flipped the coin and it was heads.

I still can't do it, so I'm gonna sleep on it. If I feel differently about it in the morning, I'll buy it.

Either way, it would make a great addition to the sword I currently own, and if my neighbors show up on my doorstep again threatening me, I'll just open the door holding all 68 inches of Zangetsu, and calmly ask if there's a problem.

Makin like Prefontane.... again

This morning I woke up at 6:30 (not on purpose) and I couldn't make it back to sleep so I decided to get up and run. I have never done this.

I stretched with my coach (coach in the backround)[sorry for the blurry picture. I didn't feel like being blinded by a flash]

Drove to the beach

I ran for about an hour (I started out with 10 minute walk, 3 minute run, then went 2 minute walk 1 minute run until I reached about 55 minutes.)
Then I drove home.

When I got home, my coach was waiting for me, giving me a hint.I guess she's anxious to see the lbs melt away as well.
