Something happened to me last night that kinda tripped me out a bit. I have been going to sleep really early lately, probably around 9 or so. Anyhow, yesterday right before I got into bed I was picking some stuff up in my room and walked over to turn off the light. As I reached for the light I took of my glasses and tossed them to the floor by my bed. As my glasses were falling through the air, I flipped the light switch.
So imagine focusing on something, and then having it disapper in thin air. This is how I would describe what happened inside my brain as the light suddenly disappeared while my glasses were still falling, effectively leaving my brain thinking the glasses were suspended in mid-air.
I don't know why this messed with my head, but I couldn't stop thinking about it, even when I woke up. Like something out of a suspense movie.
So I have been complaining about my camera dying on me a lot lately. It's been pretty depressing because I love taking photos. A couple days ago I was talking with one of my friends and found out that he just got a new camera (the one that I want). The more we talked the more we found out how much we are into photography and didn't have a clue that the other was also. It was fun. So last night we got together to play with some photos that he took of us bouldering on Sunday. Anyhow to make a short story not too boring, he brought out is old film camera, a Canon EOS Rebel G, and handed it to me. He is letting me borrow it, How awesome is that! I have never used a film camera before and have been wanting to play around with old school film photography for a while now. What perfect timing, my digital camera is dying, and Justin was gracious enough to lend me his film camera! SWEET!
Anyhow here it is! I am already having so much fun just reading the manual on how to use it!
Micah and I won the event last weekend. It was alot of fun, and the win was great. The attendance was lower than I was expecting, thus, so was the payout. But I won enough money to pay off some unpaid rent, and also pay back the person that loaned me $50 entry fee to play the event in the first place.
The tournament was at La Mirada Disc Golf Course. It is a very enjoyable 36 hole course. Micah and I shot 26 under par for 36 holes to take the win by 3 strokes. The payout was $400, $200 each.
I knew in the back of my mind that we had to win or I wouldn't be able to pay my rent, I waited until after the win was sealed to tell Micah this small fact. LOL.
I need to find a way to remind myself that drinking caffiene because I am pissed off is only going to make things worse.
Now that I don't use narcotics any more, my subconsious has been forced to find other creative ways of dealing with things. Like loading up on caffiene for instance. I'm not even supposed to drink caffiene at all because of a heart condition I have, but sometimes the caffiene releases a little tension. Today, I got really angry about something, and cracked open a dr.pepper, then another, and now I am more jumpy than a jackrabbit, and a bit tense. Not so angry anymore, but still tense. And now I get to deal with cravings for the other drugs, yay.
Read this statement and decide if you agree with it or disagree with it. Think about it before you draw a conclusion, you might be surprised.
The sooner the whole world learns to do things the way we do, the sooner all the people of the world will be able to understand each other better.
You can leave a comment with your answer if you wish, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
While backpacking last month I acquired a walking stick that helped along the 40 mile trek. While out in the middle of no where the idea of keeping the staff, cleaning it up, and giving it to my father for Christmas came to mind. So here is the stick.
Bob actually found this stick for me after my first stick broke the second day. The wood is Madrona, a beautiful giraffe coloured wood.
So far I have spent about 3 hours worth of sanding on it. I am about 80% done with the preliminary sanding. The polishing sanding will probably take a couple more hours. After that I am going to create a woodburning design and pyrograph it on the staff. Then sand it again to smooth out the burning burrs. And finally, I will put polyurethane (liquid plastic) on the staff to seal/protect it and make it nice and shiny with a beautiful finished look.
I'll throw more pictures up after I get the sanding and the burn on it.
Found in Corvallis, Oregon.
