Not a good breeder

I feel my genes are not the best to pass on and there are enough people out there to have children. Don't judge me crazy yet, I've been thinking a lot about this, and it makes sense not to pass on my faulty genes. At first I wanted to have kids, but I'm slowly coming to the realization it's not the best choice.

Does anyone else think they shouldn't bare children?

I never post here much anymore....


I let this thing go, like soo many other things in my life, just to come back and pretend I was never away... ;P


Life has been challenging and I like a challenge. I have been all sorts of happy and I have really been working on myself, but I still have a curse...not following through with wat I say.

I'm getting tired of it...saying one thing and doing the other or doing it beyond the time I told myself and others I'd do it. It's starting to really bug me and I really want to correct this behavior. Though, I must say, I have a patient person in my life that is motivating me to overcome this hurdle and I want to do it for myself, for her, and for others. I have no choice really, stay single and live with my bad habits or work them out bit by bit with someone...I choose the latter. :3

Other than that, I have 6 classes left to get my Bachelors degree in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing, and I made it through my 90 day probation with my new IT career with an Indian Organization with lots of room to move up and grow. I am really happy for this.

I have also been training with my bro for a July 16th Mountain Triathlon in Beaver Creek, Colorado. It will be a 1/2 mile swim, 9 mile mountain bike with 1500ft ele. climb, and a 3 mile run at 9,000ft elevation....I feel I am not training hard enough and I'm pretty certain of this. I have been commuting over 4 hours a day for my new job in LA and with tons of homework to do, I am having a hard time getting the everyday training in. I am still going to try my heart out and if I have to crawl to the finish line, I will!

Other than that, I still live in Riverside, my truck is paid off, my debt is following the same way, and I am living life!!! :D

Here are some recent photo's:



This day was amazing in Joshua Tree!!!!!


Limestone in the Santa Rosa mountains while hiking the Cactus Spring trail.


While hiking through the Cactus Spring trail, Jason, Dan and I found an old Cowboy Camp. "Wheee Haaaaw, I'm gunna make me some tea!"


Yeeeaaaahhh....I'm sure other people wondered how much toner is wasted in those Multifunction Printer Waste Containers... ;P Wheeee!


Well, I'm sure I can post more...so...here's one more:

Some good advice on women

My friend and I were talking about understanding women and she had this to say:

"Seek not to understand, only accept. Women don't even know what they want, this "mystery" that men are trying to solve is actually quite simple. Women are generally an unsatisfied lot who spends their time over analyzing everything.  Don't fall into the trap.  Keep it simple, it's what men do best. Be calm and patient and consistent (not matter how much she is the opposite). But don't walk on eggshells for anyone, it's not worth it. And don't be afraid to point out a woman's bullshit, we know we're crazy and we're trying to contain it (the older ones are, anyway) Hearing that we're irrational helps us to back down to earth. but be gentle, women are both volatile and delicate."  -Dawn 

Good stuff good stuff. ^.^

Parasite Cleansing time!!!

Wellll... It's been about a year since my last parasite cleanse, time to do another!!

I'm going to try a new product, Colonix. It has the same ingredients of the Paraway Pack I usually use and there is a good discount if you buy a 3 month treatment. I normally do a 1 month regime, but I've been feeling the need to do a super mondo cleanse after watching "Monsters Inside Me" on Animal Planet every Wednesday at 9pm. ;P

And here's a video that finally convinced me, retrieved from this site (not for the squeamish):



UPDATE: I decided on Ultimate Colon Cleanse because they include a free probiotic in each pack, plus they don't charge you for 30 days while you try it out!!!

30 Day Free Trial  I just ordered 3 packages using a  off coupon: 10OFFUCC

The total was about $160 and won't be billed for 30 days or ever if the product doesn't work (or I say it doesn't).... Muhahahahahaha!!!  ...but it should. ;}

Synthetic Turf

Cross posted from an FA post.... http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2454691

I like to save things....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, it's a synthetic turf made from recycled plastics... You do /not/ want to fall and slide on that stuff!!!

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/.....onmental-crumb

I, for one, is opposed to synthetic turf. We need more plants in this world, not chemical releasing compounds. Sure it may save water, but another reason we have the stuff is to absorb CO2....the ocean can only absorb soo much until the Ph is affected...and no one wants to swim in an acidic ocean! ...not even our marine life or plankton...which produce clouds and rain: http://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/en.....ktoncloud.html

Just say no to synthetic turf..

Ask me a question MEME

The problem with Live Journal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don’t know about you.


Ask, I'm ready!
