For the Morrow that is here. I was planning on waking early to do some homework and then going for a nice long swim after getting my homework and pick up packages from the school's Post Office. This weekend I plan on going to a bar or something like that nearby. So I can have a simple drink and smoke a fine cigar.

I was going to go to sleep early but many things starting running through my mind. One I want to do something and go somewhere to have a good weekend and just forget life for a moment. I also, so badly, want to Kayak the Mobile Bay again. I think I'll do that during spring break. Hopefully I can. It was so comforting to do it. If anyone is interested, let me know. Once you start you really can't stop. Remember Carpe Diem.

I'm trying to get into the habit of getting things in order and some what organized. But mostly I want some good food. So far the food here has been adiquate but I still would love some Crawfish. Hopefully I could find someone to carpool with when I go home for the 4th or around that time. Normally it's a big chunk of change to drive down.

Subject:Eventual Tattoos
Time:03:34 pm

Once I'm sailing the world in the NAVY I figure I'm going to get an old school style tattoo.

 

It'll be this type of design on top of an Anchor, with the anchor around it.

So in other words something like this.


But in simple colors and nothing too elaborate. Time will tell the tale.

Now I'm off to study before I go to class at five. I think i'm going to head home for Mardi Gras. Since I haven't seen a parade in over two years.  Oh also bought some Peruvian Cigars. Should be here tomorrow. I'm excited. Aunt Pandora, you can have one if you'd like.

Cheers,

Erik

My school schedule is very simple. two days where it's early at 9AM, two other days at noon and then another day at 3pm. But at the same time I'm not entirely focused. Well hopefully this weekend I'll start the Marine PT, at 6 AM. Also I'm going tomorrow after I get my package from the Post office I'm going swimming and rock climbing at the Rec Center. My goal is to get in better shape than what I was in High School. Being up in New York and it being cold makes you in active. But I'm excited that I'm able to ride my bike to all of my classes, eating good, and having an actual athletic center on campus.

The next major thing is work. I'm very far away from my goal with the NAVY. Which at the moment if all things go the way they go, I'll be able to actually get in the program by, the earliest, the end of Dec. Being on campus is definitely a shock compared to SUNY. However, there are things I've remembered that I miss. Most of the things are in the past and down in this area.

Last night I had some very strange dreams. Dreams that remind me of what I missed out on and that I'll always want. I was excited about what was in my dream and how it felt. I'm began to notice that things don't feel the same as they used to. My main drive now is to secure a career in the NAVY. Which for me is a big change from what I was 5 years ago. Wow 5 years. These past years have been good and yet very hard. I'm not sure if it is strange but I don't remember much before high school. Just tid bits here and there. Nothing concrete. I reckon that is what happens with life. You only remember segments. But my senior year and the year after have defined me. That time I crave for daily.

I think pushing myself forward and forcing to trudge through the tough trails and tough weather is something that makes me happy. I have this ideal of a Spartan mindset and image. The struggle and challenge of daily life and within the mind. I'm actually seeing myself reverting back to some of my Buddhist mindset, but at the same time I don't know what I believe in anymore. So much has happened and changed.

Okay goals for the near future.

1. Get good grades
2. Get physically fit
3. Get a part-time job nearby
4. Get active in the school and have some fun as well

So today I talked to the resident Marines on campus and to their Lieutenant about working out with them. So I'm going to do that as my number one thing to do this semester, besides passing classes. My dorm is fucking sweet compared to my last dorm. Won't be going home till Spring Break due to the money constraints and the fact that my weekends are short and driving to visit for a day isn't that good. However, I'll drive home if my dad needs some help building a few structures out at our property and/or the big yard sale he plans.

The Food here is amazing. It's like a mini food court in the different dinning halls. Honestly I wish I knew what I know now when I was younger. Ha great lyric and it fit perfectly. So I'm on the road towards the NAVY. Getting pretty darn excited. Just need to get into shape and hopefully my schedule with work out well with the two Marines. Besides their training is very similar to what the NAVY requires if not more. Plus biking to class and to the different areas on campus is a plus.

I'm excited. Also My girlfriend is also planning on moving south. So she'll be warmer and we'll see where our relationship will go.

Cheers.

It has been a while. In the spring I'll be going to the University of Alabama to pursue a Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering. Then once I'm near my Junior status in the ciriculum I'll join the US Navy under the Bachelors Degree Completion Program. Where I'll be employed by the US Navy to go to school then I'll go to Officer Candidate school and then have a career in the US Navy. So inn other words I have thought out the next 10+ years of my life.

Nothing extraordinary to say. I've kept good grades and actually am looking forward to the Navy. It wasn't a spur of the moment idea but a year in thought.

However, once I get Navy pay and that following summer I will build a sailboat while going to school. This summer I'll be going to school full time. So Giggidy!

It's currently 3:30 AM the 26 of October 2009. just finished a bit of homework that isn't really due. More like extra credit, but I have a test at noon in the subject. So that's why I'm going so late, also my sleep schedule is way off. But I think I'll get back on track tomorrow. I'm going to start pushing myself and testing boundaries of my physical abilities. I know I can do it, I just have to have the discipline. Starting tomorrow afternoon I shall start a work out regiment. I need to get a log book so that I can keep data. Basically to discipline myself and make sure the regiment is in order.

Today was a big leap in a change that has progressed in recent years. I'll discuss it later once all has been established. Not sure who reads this but honestly don't really mind. So the wheels of change to my destiny/life are in order. I don't necessarily believe in a destiny persay. But I do know we all are destine to six below at some point in time. However, the space in between is a desinged story that every individual write alone with those who travel and meet up in the story. 

I read a post of my friend Ashley and the quote stated is something that is very hard to deal with. That is probably the best way I have seen it ever put. I reckon it is the milestone of my life and a defining chapter in the pages. I used to worry of the future and dread the morning sun. All that has changed. I still squint at the morrow and have reservations about it, yet there is nothing I can do about it.

Life in general is nothing but great and insignificant moments that past faster and faster each time. One day I shall step away from all and slow down. In time I want the pace of the work I yield. With the time going as fast as it is I don't remember much past the Fall of 2003. In all honesty I couldn't tell you what was going on or what I did. I know there is a great story there., but I can't remember it. Slowly I loose the thought of and image of what I have based so much from. The thought of someday waking up and not knowing nor remembering worries me. Yet at the same time as the morrow's come I worry less and less. It's as if a flower bloomed and slowly the petals are falling off one by one as the morrow rises.

Time we cannot wait for and time we do not want to go.

P.S. During times where a day has lingered I tend to find a more philosophical thought. Thought with more meaning and depth than a short day. This is why one day I want to have land and I'll live by the time of my labor.

I just can't seem to get motivated. I was supposed to hit the beach bright and early but I don't feel motivated today.

Subject:What to write.
Time:01:23 am
It's been a bloody long time since I've even written in this. I actuality I don't know what to write about. Except for a similar thing that has plagued me for years. However, those who read this already know about it and heard it all. So I won't even bother. I just can think of anything to write about. I just have no feelings to write of anything of any severe importance. Just simple agony and that simple ache that will never go away.

OH I come home 23 May. So I plan on kayaking, canoeing, sailing, working out, beach time, and working.

That's All.

Many things have happened. I've been home and back again.  Currently, I'm watching a video about Economics for my MicroEconomic class.  I've been wanting to keep up writing and things of that nature here and in my personal journal. But I reckon I've just been focusing on life and just moving on.  Yesterday, for the first time I was able to actually snowboard, which is a totally different style from which I'm used to.  I don't like the fact I can't bail from the board and I can't use my ankles to move around. Other than it was pretty decent, except for falling, which the ground is very hard.

Nothing much to say other than life is decent. School is okay but decent enough to enjoy. The weeks have gone by very quickly. Since we only have 4 day school weeks and 3 day weekends makes things to go by fast. I'm still trying to get a hang of it. 

Katie and I are doing great, just enjoying time, cooking, and events. Next week we plan on snowbarding, skiing or tubeing. The snow is melting at the moment but will be freezing tonight. I've actually gotten used to the cold. It isn't as bad as many people make it out to be.  However, I have spent a bit of money procuring warm clothes. 

I really can't seem to say a whole lot. Other than that I have some ideas for the future and just hoping I'm able to go to school next year. Due to the Economical crisis and the way thigns are due to a few people being greedy and destroying the economy to a degree. However, I also do feel that technology and population has a lot to do with the importance of money and it's impact.

The Pocketship

This is something that I wish to build this summer. Or at least in the next two years. But to have it built by this summer would be amazing. Plus I could take out anyone who would like to go sailing. It isn't too big nor cumbersome. It's simple and only takes near 5K to make.

I'm going to post something on Craigslist in order to raise funds. Hopefully I could.  Cheers.
