Get Excited!

So I saw this video today and it just got me so pumped about life!

Big things are gonna happen over the next year.

The lives of my friends and family are going to be filled with faith, love, hope, music, and a handful of videos!

My new computer came in today and expect to here a lot more from me over the next year.

You have to watch this video!

Take Care

I think if there is one thing that many of us, if not all of us seek, is comfort.

The comfort of financial security.

The comfort of family and friends.

The comfort of knowing that everything will be okay.

The idea that fear is non existent.

Of course, the idea of living in fear almost keeps us in our comfort zone and restrains us from being bold, trying new things, going on adventures, and discovering who we really are.

Or maybe who we ought to be.

Sometimes I wonder, am I letting fear hold me back........ or am I letting comfort hold me back?

I guess you could almost consider them the same evil.

It is time to get uncomfortable people.

It is time to to open new doors, meet new people, find out the truth, and stop wondering.

Follow your heart and and unveil the things you've be afraid to see.

We all have a different path so don't bother asking for directions, because none of us have the same map.

Take Care and Merry Christmas

Yesterday, I was immensely tired for some reason, but I did not fall asleep at all.  My body was just telling me "dude! What are you doing! Cmon! Let's just sit back down and finish this movie."  And of course I just gave in every time.  I knew I had to go to work at 4pm, but even when I was super motivated and wanted to wake my body with a boost of energy I was just zoning out.  I even had a cup of coffee and there was still no hope.  It seemed like all hope was lost.  So I hopped in the shower, shaved, and headed to work.

(I work at festival foods in the produce department at the De Pere, WI location.  So if you are ever in there, stop by and say hello!)

As I was walking through the store to my department I just got this strange sense of power that woke me up and gave me the energy I needed to go to work.

I wasn't sure if it was the shower, the shave, or the late reaction to the coffee that did it, but I was just so glad that I was no longer zoning and being lazy.

Life can be funny, strange and revealing.

I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes I can feel like I am going crazy struggling to do what ever it is I want to do.

Despite the struggle,  I move on.  I somehow manage to make it. 

Life can reveal that no matter how dark the tunnel may seem, light is just waiting for you on the other side.

Be courageous, move on, don't give up, and remember to enjoy the journey of life.

Take Care Everyone

Under the Influence

INFLUENCERS FULL VERSION from R+I creative on Vimeo.
INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.

The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today's pop culture.

     I've been meaning to type up this post for quite some time now.  I am doing well. Very well actually.  School is just so enjoyable and excites me.  My friends I have now, had in the past and new friends I make each and every day are the some of the most important people in my life.  They help mold me into who I am.  I will not forget my family who raised me oh so well.  My parents are the people that deserve the most credit. As well as their parents.  All the people in my life who have come and gone, even those to come, I thank for everything.

     My mind has been racing pretty fast over the past month for pretty much two main reasons, ideas and romance.  Yes, I have met another that I bond with on a level beyond satisfaction.  She is beautiful, talented, insightful, caring, inspiring, exciting, and so much more.  Apart from the romance, but possibly inspired by it, I have been brewing up some pretty awesome ideas that intertwine with what I have been learning in school, as well as my personal passions.  They will be revealed within the passing of time and within reason.  Once my ideas are perfected and proposed I hope they will be intriguing to you.  I have been discussing with close friends and family as well as some of my advisors at school.  I am just so enticed by these ideas.  I hope they spark a great fire within my career.

     I guess that is all I am going to reveal for now.  I hope these things excite you and that you are inspired to do something you have been meaning to start or maybe even finish.  All I know is that if you start something, you should finish it and there is no harm in trying.

My new favorite saying, is a new twist on an old saying, "Good things come to those who do good and wait."

Thank you to everyone, anyone, or anything that has been a part of my life.  I am made of all these things.

Badger Badger Badger!

The last month or so has been most enjoyable. So many events taking place. Family, friends, and memory.

This weekend my friends and I will be visiting my adventurous sister Elizabeth as well as meeting up with the super awesome cool Davy B. Ha. The Weekend will consist of friends, food, waltzing around and a little bit of everything else. Life is good and I am thankful.

I will be handling Madison just like I handled this badger last summer....metaphorically speaking.....

On a side note:

Pumpkin Season is upon us! Get out there a carve one before its too late!

If you were a master pumpkin carver, what would you carve in your pumpkin?!

Answer in the comments below!

Moving On

Well, pretty much the entire summer I didn't post a single blog, which many of you may or may not have noticed. Either way, here is my next submission.

I have moved down to De Pere recently and live in a rental house with two close friends and hopefully a new close friend from Japan. His name is Wataru and he is a pretty cool dude. He has not moved in yet but will be in the next 2 weeks.

Living with friends rather than family will be a great experience for me to help cope with some of my personal issues that I ignored while living at home and hopefully cope or help reveal problems others may have to help create a new family of my own in some mysterious way.

I am expecting great things from my decisions to move away from home and continue my education at NWTC in Green Bay for the digital media technology program and photography. I will be learning how to professionally handle audio, video, and photography in the business world to help myself, businesses and others succeed in their careers and lives.

Enough of me talking all serious. haha.

Sometimes seriousness needs a little bit of zest.

So here is a question I would love answers to!

If there was any other color of ketchup rather than red, like there was a while back, which color would you want the most?

Or which color would not bother you that much to put on food?

Or maybe favorite color mustard?

Get creative.

Take Care.
