Here’s a picture of a previous build that I did. I have to say that IRO makes some great frame sets. For the price, it can’t be beat.
I am a shoe-a-holic, a sneaker freak, a sneaker head…whatever you wanna call it. I’m crazy about shoes. I have always been like this for as long as I can remember, my first pair of Jordan’s were the Jordan 5′s that I got when I was in the third grade or something. I just scored some pretty nice shoes from Nordstrom’s half-yearly sale today!
I haven’t updated at all lately because I started a new job a little more than a month ago as an in house graphic designer at a local outdoor equipment manufacturing company. It was pretty hectic at one point because I had two interviews at different places and one place wanted to hire me and the other one called me back for a second interview. The second interview seemed promising but I couldn’t wait any longer as the local company needed someone as soon as possible.
I’m still doing freelance on the side like I am right now. But I’m keeping it to a minimum. If it gets to be too much I have a few friends who are more then willing to take on the jobs. Besides, they need the experience and exposure. I don’t want work to get in the way of life. It has definetely put a dent in it but I’m not going to let it get in the way. I still go out and see my friends after work or on the weekends. I’m still messing with my car as much as I was before the job. I’m still eating as much as I was before the job and I’m pushing myself to work out every other day when I get home from work, even if I’m tired. I’ll try to write more, till next time.
“When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?”

I did my very first group bike ride tonight with some friends. It was a pretty chill ride, pace was around 10-15mph and we went about 20 miles tonight. We had a few stops for breaks. First stop was at In-N-Out where I felt super duper dizzy. I don’t know what it was but I drank some water and had a banana and I was ready to go again. Before we left I decided to put my beanie on because it was getting kind of cold. At In-N-Out I was having an interesting conversation with my friend (who is a girl) and her girl-friend. We were talking about how girls say they don’t take shits but these two girls fully admit they take shits, about 2-3 times a day. It was just kind of funny because I’ve never heard a girl say they actually take shits. Anyway, back to the ride. After we resumed riding we had to stop by a gas station to pick up some Tums for my friend because her stomach doing so great. After that we rode some more and ended up at Yogurtland for another break before heading back and calling it a night.
It was a pretty cool ride. I needed to do some cardio for myself anyway because lately I have been feeling a little tired and sluggish so maybe I’ll continue to do these Sunday rides that my friend does. We’ll see. It was also good to just hang out with my best girl-friend. It’s such a relief to be around her because I get to be myself 100%. I usually am myself with other people but sometimes I do hold back because I just don’t know or maybe I’m just afraid they will not accept me for me. It was also good to see how she is when she is around her new boyfriend. I can tell she is happy and that makes me happy because I know that feeling. I was actually getting a little envious, jealous if you will towards the end of the night because I had that once and it was such a great feeling. I was actually bitching out at her at one point but stopped because I realized that I was being stupid. I’m sorry. She did tell me my day will come. I hope so. But I can’t dwell on the past, forget that. It’s not going to get me anywhere anyhow, so why bother. I can only think and remember about the good times that I had because that is what is giving me hope to find someone who I truly deserve and will be able to give me what I want and what I need. Anyhow, I’m tired, got to rest these legs and this body of mine.
To set the record straight I am not anti-hope. But all I’m saying is that hope, or even faith can be a very dangerous thing. Yes, sometimes we hope and dream about things coming true and sometimes they don’t. It is in our DNA to look forward, having positive thoughts and hoping for the best. But we all know that no matter how much positive thoughts we have or how much hope we have, it will never change the outcome. Now I’m not saying we should all throw hope out the window and think negative thoughts, but all I’m saying is that we should use hope very carefully. I often times have too much hope and faith in people, only to be let down.
