So last Tuesday I turned 31 years old. I got many e-mails and facebook posts telling me that this year would be the best ever. I must say every year lately has had it's up and downs. But I really do think that this year has many things to unlock. 

A few weeks ago I became a certified Open Water Diver from PADI and I got my card in the mail. I am so happy to finally have that taken care of. I didn't give myself the most amount of time to get it done. But I now have 6 dives under my belt in Puget Sound. Talk about some cold water. 

For the long holiday weekend the girlfriend and I are visiting Vancouver, BC. Hopefully the weather holds out and we can go for a bike ride around Stanley Park. 

I will hopefully take a video of the experience and we can see what will happen. If anyone is still reading I would love to hear from you.

Well hey there internet. It has been a while since I last wrote to you. Last time I posted was in July of 2013 about biking. That has been an odd journey. I have had two bicycle accidents since I have started. The most recent one in October. I had to have surgery on my knee and deal with that recovery process. I hope to be getting back on my bike in a week or two. 

I signed up for scuba diving class and will be a certified scuba diver next month which shall be awesome. Turning 31 in May need to become one of those adults I hear people talk about. I would like to buy a house sometime soon. Shall see what I can afford in that realm. 

Still loving work and life. Still with my wonderful lady for 7 years now. Good times there. I must say the journey of life is awesome and I can't wait to see what's in store. 

Keep an open mind and hopefully the good will come. 

Here is a pretty sweet video I captured of a Sea Turtle my last time in Maui.

Well it has been a long time since I have posted a blog. Back in October 2011 I started a journey to lose weight. I have lost over 130lbs and continue along every day. Losing all of this weight has prompted me to start a few new hobbies. I have been biking to work since end of April. I picked up a bike in October of 2012. I got to ride a few times before it got super cold and I had to put the bike away for the winter. 

April came around and I signed up for Bike to Work month which is the wonderful Month of May. I got about 130 miles logged on my bike before I crashed on a bridge and almost broke my big toe on my left foot. That was a setback and I was rather disappointed to post to my team that I couldn't ride my bike anymore. I had a boot on my foot and I had to wear it for about two weeks. But my foot was still in pain so I basically had to stop riding or doing any exercise. My foot was in so much pain. 

But that is all done and been biking to work. I still don't like going across that bridge so I added 3.5 miles to my bike route to avoid it. But the extra distance is awesome. I must say I love to ride my bike and constantly find an excuse to ride it more. 

Now onto new hobbies for my future. Scuba Diving and Motorcycles. We shall see what happens.

Well 2013 has begun. It shall be an interesting journey. I am rather excited to see what happens. 2012 had a great deal of change. I am always shocked when I feel like nothing has really happened. Then I take some time and look back and see many accomplishments and things to work on for next year. I am excited for the journey into the future. 2013 is the year I turn 30 which is crazy. I think back to when I was 20 that was a crazy time as well. 

It's late I am off to bed.
