New Songs

It has been a while since I posted any music I relay like Andy Mckee.  What he can do with a guitar is incredible and enjoyable to listen to

I did not know they could do that….

I was reading a post about dolphins on another blog and got interested in all the other videos that were similar.  It took a few minutes until I came across this one and had to share it.

It took awhile and a lot of hard work but I did it.

I passed my Calculus I class.

I. Am. Awesome.

Just wanted you to know,

about me and my awesomeness.

Go me.

As some one who is fascinated by Geology to the point that it even persuades my humor it was great to see a movie with some geology humor in to. What is great is that I'm not the only one who can laugh at a good geology joke. During the movie Planet 51 I was delighted to see one of the main character had about the same level of interest in geology as I do. Then when I thought this movie could not get any better there were two seen that made me laugh so hard so that I thought I would share it with you.

In this first clip "Rover" is collecting rock samples and finds more than just a rock what made me laugh is how he dealt with this pest (which is a scorpion / lizard).

On this planet when it rains it does not rain water; however, in its place is something I would never want landing on my head.

As a student of geology hoping to one day be a planetary geologist this movie was interesting.

The Reason for the Break

It has already been two months since my last post it all comes down to habits my are not the most predictable.  Have you ever had the moment where you do something very well for awhile then the habit slowly fades?  For me the most stand out moment where this will happen is when I play one of my all time favorite video games Final Fantasy 1.  ff1uscoverEvery time with out fail when I reach the last dungeon (which is also the fist one in the game) all of my ambition to finish off the game disappears. I think that has happened in a different way to my blog.  However I will try to rekindle my habits and post more regularly.

Recap of 2009

I have been neglectful when it comes to posting the experiences and stories of my life.  Over the past few months I started a few entries but they never seemed to get off the ground.  Which brings me to this point where I realized that a new year is upon me and I had not finished out the 2009 year on my blog.  So the point of this post is to share the last few months worth of adventures with a little back story.

One year ago about a week before Christmas 2008 we moved to in my opinion the best and newest apartment that we had ever lived in to date after M and I were married.  With the move happening so close to the holidays I did not have time to properly decorate our new home.  This was a problem I was going to rectify for the 2009 season. 

When it comes to decorating with lights I try and emulate Clark Griswold from the Christmas Vacation movie.  My only limiters this year was the amount of lights I could put up and the limited space on my 8 foot by 8 foot patio.  I started putting up lights out side over my Thanksgiving break yes before Thanksgiving Christmas lights were going up over at my house.  I am pleased that I was able to put up 835 lights on my patio I know what your saying "835 that's nothing".  PC310062Well to that I would remind you that my story is not done yet there is still more to come.  We also this year revived a new Christmas tree from my sister (thank you), and for the first time picked out an entire matching set of ornaments (the non-breakable ones) and a complete set of clear lights specifically forOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         the tree. What is truly amazing is the fact that it took 950 lights to completely cover the tree which we set up in our front room window.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         So my 2009 total lights count with the tree and outside lights combined is 1775 . 

For New Year's eve I spent it taking down 1775 lights and putting away all of our Christmas decorations.  With all the decorations down and in there place we can now start seating up the baby stuff before the next semester begins.
