So naturally when I have any break from school, I go into work mode and become a relentless labor tyrant and put all my energy into making money for the next semester. I’ve sadly neglected updating my blog as a result. This has been a wacky summer to say the least. I’m ready for hunker down mode. I need some scheduling and routine back in my life. Fall semester is ideal for that. While everyone else is bitching and moaning about they want an endless summer I’m over here doing the fall happy dance. Don’t get me wrong, Endless Summer will always be my favorite docufilm.. But shit it’s freakin hot and miserable. I mean, I live in San Diego! Where’s the 70 degrees and palm trees idealistic landscape? All we’ve had is 90+ sweaty, angry at the world humidity laden bullshit. I may as well be in Arizona. We did get a wicked thunder/lightening/hail storm yesterday though.. That made my “I can’t drink hot coffee because I’m sweating at 7am” attitude flourish a bit. It kept me wide awake because it was loud as hell but whatever.. Free car wash :)
So I got to experience some pretty bitchin things this summer.. Definitly a few new ones for the book. I had an awesome(well deserved) trip to June Lake that rocked my world. Abundant fishing, beautiful landscapes and fresh mountain air. We also did the Devils Post Pile/Rainbow falls hike that kicked my ass. Whoever set the trail markers was drunk because that was wayyy longer that it was labeled. Worth it though. We had a rad view
I also got the biggest fish so I was pretty pumped on that bad boy.. The boys have some learning to do ;)
But seriously…. Hope ridiculous is nature?? His creation amazes me
And we did Bodie which was pretty rad too!
I also had my first experience going to Hollyweird.. Chinatown of all places. Luckily I was in great company so I had a great time. We went to support a friends band called The Rebel Light and they were incredible! And such nice guys. If you’re into discovering some great music, check them out!
And food trucks were a new one.. If you ever see Chinese Mexican fusion, think twice. It leaves you feeling like you ate 30 bucks worth of Taco Bell.
And then there was Miranda
What an insane night! My cousin surprised me with tickets to see her for our birthdays.. And we were in the parking lot tailgating when the holy truck pulled up. This kind little older couple rolled down the window and asked if we were big fans and of course we were. And they hand us this ticket package that just about knocked the wind out of both of us…
like are you freakin kidding me?? We went from lawn seats to 10 paces from the stage.. Good karma slapped us both across the face then turned around and kicked our asses straight to the promise land. We were right up there and it was insane! Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert out on an amazing show and we were so blessed with an incredible opportunity.
So now that this craziness of summer madness is almost over, I can come back to reality. I’m ready for school to start. Now.
By the way, what would I be if I didn’t talk about my beloved baseball?
I haven’t divulged much as of late because I’ve been so busy with life, but what a whirlwind this season has been. I’m thankful that I’ve been able to make it to several games. But the poor poor padres have cleaned house and shot down any chance of contending this season. Better luck next year fellas! I do however have faith in our new GM because he seems like he can do business.. Not to mention he’s a stone cold fox. And my Giants have signed one of my favorite pitchers in Jake Peavy.. I loved him in San Diego, I loved him in Boston, but now I can love him in my team with the Gigantes! And we will prevail in whooping some dodger ass. Kershaw scares me because he’s other worldly, but I have good juju set in place for my beloved giants. And the Indians have kind of shocked me with their production. Il always be faithful to my Ohio team, but man.. Can we get some decent pitchers?? One standout to me is Mr TJ House.. Not only because he has an awesome last name, but he’s been very productive in starting pitching for the Indians.. I’ve got high hopes for this guy, and a big plus is when I get my new jersey for next season, I won’t have to get a custom one cause he’s on the roster.. Yahtzee!
I have to get back to work, but I’m glad I was able to check in and catch up on this 2014 madness.. Til next time compadres😘
