Goodbye Winter

Yesterday I went with my friends Andrew, Keelan, and Grant up to Pemene Falls.  The occasional patches of snow in the forest made me realize that winter was truly over and had no more chances of survival.  The one thing I will miss most about winter will be the way it brings people together inside homes and other establishments.  I also enjoy seeing the trees get caked with snow, but I will definitely not miss the snow.  I have had enough of the slippery roads and shoveling.

What will you miss?............. or not miss about winter?

Food Frenzy!

So Every Other week I will try to have some sort of food that I had eaten up on the blog to keep everyone's eyes full and stomach appealed.  Or was it the other way around?
Bad joke by Jake?

I want to give a big thanks to Samantha for showing me Kavarna, a privately owned vegetarian coffeehouse in downtown Green Bay.  They are about half a block south of the intersection of Broadway and Walnut Street.  We have found ourselves eating there quite often.  It may seem pricey, but you are getting awesome food, you are full when you are done eating, and it makes you feel great due to its freshness.

If you aren't big on vegetarian food, at least try the Southwestern Wrap there and have a cup of coffee. The Southwestern Wrap is simply awesome and I would recommend that to anyone that has never eaten there before. They also serve a great brand of coffee beans by Alterra, a company established out of Milwaukee,WI. Of Course they also serve the other coffeehouse regulars such as cappuccinos, lattes, iced coffee, great hot cocoa, and even a great selection of teas, wines, and beer.

The last time I ate there I had this awesome Feta Portabella off of there "Hot Wraps" section of the menu.

It consisted of an herbed tortilla with grilled portabella mushrooms, feta cheese, and garlic cream cheese, baked with spinach and red onions.

This thing was so juicy and creamy with a side of awesome!
If you love mushrooms and spinach give this baby a shot. I loved this thing. Every time I go there I love their tortillas.  I am not sure if they make their own or order them in, but they are always a positive aspect of every meal.  Don't be afraid to try everything on the menu, I have about half the menu checked off as far as the food goes. They also have a sweet punch card for coffee and tea drinkers, as well as double punch mondays to get you pumped for a free cup!

For more information go to their website: http://www.kavarna.com/

The place has a great vibe and amazing employees/owners.  They will be moving within the next year just a few blocks over on Broadway and will also have a deli!  I'm getting excited for that!

I am not a vegetarian and I love their food!  Give it a chance.

A Week of Could Have Been.

It's Been a week since I have posted anything.
This last week was pretty much all over the place with work, sight seeing, friends, changing plans, doing things unexpectedly, new friends, building fires, waterfalls, travel, getting stuck in the mud, building dams, keeping in touch with friends afar.  So many.............things.

These things are what make us who were are............where we come from..............and how we live.

Sure things could be better at times, but these "things" are something more awesome than......well...........more awesome than whatever it is I am trying to explain.

I want to thank God for every "thing" that has ever taken me to where I am, where I have been, and who I am.

When was the last time that you had a moment and thought to yourself........"wow this is so awesome"........."I am so thankful for this moment"..........

Respond in the comments.

Some people have had a hard time responding in the comments.  Just click on the "comment as" selection box and choose "Name/URL"  and just type in your name, no need for a URL.

It should work.  I talked to a few people about it.  I hope everything works out.

You've Got A Friend In Me

     Lately nostalgia has been in some way taking over my spare time.  The Toy Story 3 trailer got me all excited and I got the Nintendo 64 back from my sister recently which has made me realize that when I was in grade school, I actually thought the N64 graphics were realistic, when really they just were not that far up to par with reality.  

     Anyways, here are a few films I dug up that I loved to watch during my glory days.  The days were I didn't even know what the words behave and responsibility really meant.  I was young and innocent and I had all the time in the world to do pretty much whatever I wanted.

I will be doing a blog about  my favorite video games growing up in the future as well.

Here is another question to help me get to know everyone again:

What were your favorite films growing up as a child?
Feel free to post pictures on the facebook group page:

Today I would also like to announce that I am getting back my Nintendo Gamecube from my friend Tim, he has had it for quite some time.

Wake Up to Change Up

This morning i planned on waking up at 5am to go the pier and watch the sunrise.  My alarm went off at 5am and I just kind of laid there thinking about nothing.  I had a video kind of planned out but then I decided no, I have to plan this better.  So get ready for a early morning vlog sometime in the near future.

   Today I will leave every one with a pretty good question. I hope that you can leave your answers in the comments below.  Just click on the word "Comments"

If there is any career that you would like to do for a living and be financially stable from it, what would it be and why?

Talk = Listen

These trees have seen it all.
Though they do not speak a word.
They are sworn to oath under the sun.
The sun that provides life and sustainability.
The earth is forever thankful to the sun.
Neither of them speak, but they know each other so well.
Maybe we can learn from this.
Give listening a chance.
We seem to talk too much sometimes.
Or spend too much time waiting for our turn to talk.
When we really need to be listening.
Not worrying about what we are going to say next.
There is nothing to wait for.
A soul is speaking to you.
Whether its the sound of truth or lies.
Listening can teach us so much without saying a word.

Let your lips rest.
They have been through many battles.
It is time to let your heart take over.
And the sounds to reach you.

Some Days Are Just Wacky

I took this photograph with a disposable camera at the UP State Fair.  I think it was 2006.
That old guy must be Dean.

A River in the Desert

Like a river flowing in a desert, so is the miracle of each day.
We learn no matter how awesome or dreadful it was,
Life has purpose.
No matter what happens,
Remember that what lies in your heart,
Is what keeps you here.

Take Care Everyone.

None of us can we compare.
We live separate lives, separate thoughts.
We have our own gifts, our own abilities, our own talents.
We are all full and overflowing with WORTH!
So I say WAKE!
