today was the day of the camping trip, me and my best friend took off after class was cancelled. work already knew I would be heading out of town. it was about a two to three hour drive the get there. we saw a lot of lush vegetation and a lot of different colored trees and plants. when we arrived we stretched and headed inside and filled out what needed to be filled. we were given a map and the we were expecting to drive up to the camp site when we discovered that we couldn’t drive anymore and had to park and hike up the rocks to the camp site. we parked and popped the trunk.
we grabbed what we needed, we just grabbed the essential for a campsite. i had recently acquired my tent from my brother, it is huge, it can hold twelve people comfortably and maybe more for a crammed bunch. we realized that it was going to be a bit of a hike. it was a three mile hike with about fifty pounds or more of extra weight for each of us.
we talked all the way up the hike about work mostly and the stuff that’s been going on since last seeing each other. we finally arrived and were low on water supply. these camp site were really secluded and nothing like the ones I had gone too a very long time ago. these didn’t have the special emanates of water or shower or even water stations near by. they’re were way different, some of the sites were primitive with nothing around, there we also others that had water and electricity hook-ups and the others were you could have brought a trailer or recreational vehicle to park.
we set up camp and after also being low on food we decided to head back through the hills and to the car to leave the park and head to the gas station about twenty minutes before the site. we got quick things to eat and two gallons of water and paid and returned to the camp site because we had left the tent set up and our belongings. we parked. we tried to pack what we had and consolidated what we could. we hiked up the mountain to returned back to the tent. on arrival there was still no one around. we did see a few people walking back to the parking lot but no one going any father along the trail.
for dinner i opened a can of ranch style beans and ate some cheetos an chased it down with water that we had brought. we got to open up way more then we usually have since we didn’t have any electronics to mess with; it was just us and nature. our conversations got pretty deep. after all that I am here in my sleeping bag writing this out. it was crazy and one of the most adventurous thing I have done in a while. I think it is time for me to get some shut eye. I hope y’all had a great day. good night and sweet dreams.

today when i woke up from a wonderful dream i thought i had heard a noise. i washed my face and headed out the back door at my parents house. i had to go because my brother wanted to see a movie and i tagged along and when it finished i joined him to my parents with nothing but the clothes on me and my handy dandy iphone. after stepping outside i heard a clank. i asked myself; what is that noise?! it turns out it was three kittens. i was only able to get a hold of one while the others scrambled. it was funny because the other two ran one way and the one i caught ran into a box and it looked like he was disappointed from being caught. lol. it got me thinking while i held it in my hands; “wow! i have a small living organism in my hands right now.” for that moment i realized it was safe in my hands then from the world beyond my hands. if need be; i was able to protect a life. it also reminded me of what i used to do with you, i tried to protect you secretively. just so if something were to go wrong i always played out the senario out in my head for everything. i am just paranoid about life sometimes.

“life. it is so precious.”

i was also remembered of this test i took recently for a job to help lives. i was asked a question about my life, i answered as truthfully as i could. i did and i am in. as the day went on the day involved more lives to enter in my view. for the first time in many months we were all together. in a way that brought a smile to my face and the almost feeling of having something in my eye. ever since i was told, i have been more appreciative of all life. now with my current position i am able to help those who just need a little push in the right direction. i show what good can come. i think i found my niche. everyone has their own story to tell and it is interesting to listen. i know there are days where i need to talk but from a philosophical point i just need someone to hear me out and i would take what ever is told to me in consideration. even though i have been shut out from somethings i still have a lot to learn. given the opportunity i will continue to help others. i was asked why that makes me happy this weekend and my response to my brother was i like seeing people happy, if i can make one change and that person carries it on to another then i have just started a chain. if i were to help a hundred people and more then half carried it on that is still okay with me because i would know i made the attempt to help when no one else ever would. he was stunned by my answer; speechless to be exact.

after joining my visiting parents to the store, i saw a bunch of camping gear and now trying to plan a camping trip. it has been over two years now since i have been. it is now that time to reconnect with nature. i hope i can get it before turkey day or before winter is here. it is getting late now and have a busy day tomorrow. i hope all had a great day. good night and sweet dreams.

finally the week is over but another is about to begin, another week of trying to cram in everything together to get everything turned in too. my head if full of information that it is coming out of my ears. even with sleeping early and getting enough rest and having a balanced breakfast, i have been running around everywhere and it has been a game of cat and mouse. one minute im here the next i have to go across town and so on and so on. it is well worth it but the part that is never good are the headaches and body aches. not to mention the workouts i have been through this week are killer but relaxing and refreshing at the same time. i hope to be sleeping in on sunday, still have more to do tomorrow. have a good rest of the night folks, this is me signing off for today. had a lot to say today too.

never ending cycle O_o

I passed by a wrecked earlier and thought to my self; ” what was the cause of the accident?” and from a distant it looks like the subject was explaining something to the officer on site but as we drove closer and closer the subject was actually screaminge at the officer. Looked like a case of the bad Mondays, why can we all just get along?! must road-rage be an end to all man-kind well??
