I stopped blogging for a while last year for a few reasons. One, I suck at it. Two, I forget that I even have this sometimes. Three, a lot went to shit in November and everything sort of fell off track. That’s all I’ve got for now so I’ll just leave this here…

Thieves strike once again. I’ve had my motorcycle stolen and totaled. Two years later my car was stolen and all of my personal belongings were dumped (I was in the middle of moving). Now, today, Brad’s enclosed trailer was stolen. Sometimes I really hate people. This was for sure planned. You don’t just drive by and decide, “Oh hey, look at that big ol’ car trailer, I think I’ll take it!” No. Whoever did this had planned it and waited until he left work to take it because he was there late last night.
I’d also like to point out how much I HATE comments like, “Did you lock it?” or “ simple, and cheap, hitch lock would have prevented this!” I mean, really? First off, of course it was locked, that would’ve been stupid. Secondly, having a lock on the hitch doesn’t automatically guarantee that it won’t be stolen. For example, cars that have locks and alarms are stolen all the time, what makes you think a little lock on the hitch is going to stop them? Seriously, people.
Thankfully the car and the engine he’s building weren’t in it but there was still a lot in there that I’m sure we’ll never see again. I just don’t understand how people do these things.
Also, on an unrelated note, but also makes me frustrated with people…someone’s status on none other than Facebook said that 3 electoral votes doesn’t mean anything. That’s sad. This person has a lot to learn and understand because even a little number like 3 can be the deciding factor in an election. So yes, it means something.

I can’t believe we’re already at November. At this rate, before I know it, it’ll be 2013 and I’m not ready for it. On another note, I ran a total of 43.5 miles during the month of October. That may not be a lot for some but it’s a hell of a lot for me, coming from someone who used to never run before. Winter’s coming so I hope I can keep this up, but sometimes I get pretty lazy and just want to hibernate. I only set a goal of 30 miles for this month but I have a feeling I’ll be able to surpass it.
I’ve also made an effort to cook more and eat healthier and I think I’ve done decent. Last night I used a veggie chili recipe I found on the internet. Thank you, Pinterest. I’ve never made chili in my life and putting zucchini and squash in it made me a bit hesitant but it turned out pretty good. Will make again.

This has been much needed this week.

For some reason that title seemed fitting. Meh. I had given up hope that I was going to FD Irwindale and after this past weekend’s drift event with Matt here, it just reminded me how much I wanted to be there. As I looked around for flights and cheap prices, a friend sent me a text message that contained flight information saying, “happy early birthday lol.” I was a little confused at first and then kept thinking that there’s no way he just did that. I’m still mad that he did and I will try to force money upon him when I see him next week but I’m extremely grateful for such a generous gift.

Life is unpredictable. You can plan all you want, but there’s no guarantee because things don’t always go as planned. I recently learned that someone I knew in high school and during the first part of college passed away recently. I saw that someone had posted a link to her obituary and was shocked to see it. She was young, in her mid 20′s, and it’s so hard to see those who are so young leave so quickly. At least she’s in a better place now, and her family and friends will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Just remember that anything can happen at any time and any place. Don’t take life for granted. Be thankful for who you have and what you have because at any moment, you could lose it all.

Remember how I always forget about the 29376293 means of social outlets that are out there? Well, I do; which means
sometimes a lot of times I forget about this blog. So some highlights since the last post? Here we go:
FD Seattle was awesome. I’ve never been to Seattle and I really like it, minus the whole raining the majority of the time thing. We did touristy things and went to the Pike Place Market where we ran into Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis who happened to be in town apparently promoting their movie “The Campaign.” There was a HUGE crowd waiting for them and we just happened to stumble upon the whole thing and were lucky enough to be right there and snap some photos. From FD media to paparazzi. Bam. I was also able to get a ride along with FD driver Odi Bakchis during practice thanks to Andy Luk since my last ride along with Matt Powers didn’t turn out so great, haha. It’s pretty amazing being able to experience first hand what their view is like.
The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. So amazing and yet such a brutal event to photograph. From getting roughly 2-3 hours of sleep during the night, to waking up at hours like 3AM and spending hours upon hours on a mountain where you experience everything from cold, rain, snow, and warm weather. However, when you come back with those shots, you realize how much it’s worth it. Maybe. On race day we were literally on the mountain for 19 hours, no joke. There were quite a few accidents and delays which prolonged the race and it also took about 2 hours to drive down the mountain with all the people.
House hunting. I’m at a point where I need more room and a garage and a yard…and I can’t find that in an apartment. Even if I somehow did, the cost would basically be as much as a mortgage payment so why not put that payment towards something that counts, right? I’m excited but it’s kind of stressful and nerve-racking. Still hunting but we’ll see what happens.
Finally, the E30. A lot has been in the works with it so this deserves its own post. More to come soon.
