|11:47 am - school news|
I received some good news from my Miramar College counselor yesterday. After much painstaking transferring of credits and submission of requests to my major (earth science) to accept certain classes for credit, it looks like I'm only two classes away from graduating with my Associates. One class this summer consisting of multicultural history (i.e. Black or Chicano studies) and one class this fall; Physics or Mechanics.
So that's a major Yay!
Here's another yay, Tobin's little hands but seemingly long fingers (for a baby):

|11:22 am - Hi!|
I've made some changes to spruce up this place. I grabbed the theme from livejournal. Hopefully it looks good.
Also updated the links list over there. I have the regulars like flickr, facebook and twitter. And have added a few new ones like foursquare and fuelly.
I've been having a lot of fun using foursquare, it just makes a lot of sense to me. But also have been on twitter again (4 posts yesterday). Not so much facebook as I'm really not good at the whole "hey what's up" kinds of posts.
And of course go on over to flickr to check out my pics of the baby like this one:

|11:34 pm - lj, fb, and flickr|
i haven't been posting here as much because of the fb and flickr taking up my time. i've found that the smallish comments and posts i was making in regards to pictures can just be captured on the flickr stream itself. and fb of course is it's own beast. i guess i'll try to get more of my actual thoughts down here as time progresses and the awesome new life events that are happening for me. i'm really happy about the place i'm in and the people with me. i hope my attitude rubs off on others, i think it does. even though i can be a bit of an evil world taker-over schemer sometimes, i'm pretty soft at heart.

|12:20 am - the ocean is loud tonight|
i can hear the waves from my back patio. they sound like a heavy train passing by with no end. i surfed some waves this week that shook me to my core. i won't say i was scared. it was more of a steely determination. sometimes i wonder why i even do this sport. what makes one go out there, i don't know. the thrill of 10 foot waves crashing around you is undeniably beautiful.

|10:51 pm - a bar story|
random bar story from my recent trip to michigan. i'm in the side track bar in depotown when i hear what sounds like a quarter fall on the ground and roll a bit then hit metal. i look over and see a man at a table across the room looking down at the spot of the noise in moderate earnest. next i hear the first "no way". shortly followed by another "no wayyyy". it wasn't a quarter. it was his wedding ring! ha. it's fallen through a foot square old fashioned floor grate. mind you this is an old bar and that is an old bar drain. after some unfortunate realization for said ring loser and some attention from the wait staff, they manage to pry up the grate. this is where the picture happens. it's the fellow reaching down the hole only to realize it's deeper than he hopefully imagined. it was pretty hilarious and tragic as well. i've paid my bill at this point, so i'm proceeding to leave at which time a waitress is shining a flashlight down the drain. and oh the site of that hole. it must have been about 20 years of collective dust and the knowing that the ring passed through a good chuck of it. ohhh crap. here's hope you found that ring, bar guy. cheers.

hardest bit of life i've had to deliver that our wondeful Lucy died one night before we got back from vacatione. she was such a special little cat. rescued by her owner when she was a mere kitten from the advancing cornering of a large canine. tenderly loved and cared for, Lucy was a true shy cat. small and sleek, completely black. she was adorable curled up on the the bed or when she'd be chasing her tail. she was just starting to accept me as a second human to her one true owner too. she lived 8 beautiful years and will be remembered fonded by many that knew her. bon voyage Lucy, may all your new adventures be free of worry and filled with the love you showed us.

|03:07 pm - beacons in the house|
had a pretty stellar surf session with slovak today. it's really hard to sit and watch football when there's beautiful stuff like this going on. plus, my nfl teams stinks, so i really have no reason to watch. it was a pretty intimidating paddle out. we aimed directly for the middle of this picture but after getting pushed south by the undertow and kinda paddling through a set (bad timing) we ended up way left. as big as the waves were they were actually kind of gentle. it was such big, long period swell it made the waves themselves wider, which in turn slows them down and make them "mushy". which is better when you have a big one homing in on you. the duck unders, albeit wild, were not it the scary range. meaning we were able to stay out for over 2 hours. it was pure bliss.
