Beth likes to go hiking every now and then. She usually has the idea to get out of the house and I usually complain at the thought of doing any sort of physical activity; until I actually get out of the house and we start the process. I find that I enjoy hiking and other activities once embracing it. I’d encourage you to do so as well. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Here are a few pics from our trip.
I turned 31 a month and a day ago. Things have been busy for me. Mostly because I spend so much time traveling to and from work each day… I’m not bitter about it. :) In all honestly though, if I didn’t like my job, the commute wouldn’t be worth it. Lucky for me, I’ve been enjoying it.
That in itself has made my last year. I haven’t really done a ton of stuff other than work. We put in a desert front lawn which took some getting used to visually. I really like the fact that now, I don’t need to mow or water at all. It’s very convenient!
I also recorded my 4 song EP that I’ve been talking about forever. Through the process, I’ve found it hard to find reliable people to work with. I imagine that is kind of what employers feel like when trying to hire for a position. The final mixes are almost done and I’ll post a link soon enough for everyone to listen to. I’m please with my progress so far!
This next year I hope to blog more. That’s it. I’ve basically done everything that I set out to do last year but blog. So this year I’m setting the bar low, blog more. :)
Here are a few pictures from my birthday, we went to Alcatraz this year. Enjoy.
There are a number of reasons as to why Travis Barker is my idol. I’d start by saying his drumming is simply fantastic. I love his style, speed and passion. To me, he seems down to earth and I appreciate his roots.
If you haven’t seen Travis Barker drum, click here. He has a marching band style to his drumming that I respect and love. I feel like marching band drumming is fundamentally challenging, you have to be disciplined to be talented at it.
This last weekend, I got the opportunity to meet Travis. He was doing a book signing for his new book “Can I Say” Living large, cheating death, & drums, drums, drums. I just started reading it this week and so far I’m really enjoying it!
Travis signed my book, shook my hand and took a picture with me. I couldn’t have asked for more. The 3 hours I waited in line was worth it! Below are a few pictures from the book signing.
For our 6 year wedding anniversary, Beth and I went to Yosemite. It’s the one place I’ve wanted to visit since moving to CA and it was worth it! The best way I could describe it was “epic”.
We also stopped along the way to visit Beth’s sister and brother in law. While we were there we ended up seeing a beached whale. While sad, it was a once in a life time experience. Below are some pictures of our time.
