Do you wake up and think? Today is going to be a great day. Or do you wake up and think ? Another day of work
family , bills and everyday life?

What say you?

I've lived a pretty good life. I've achieved most everything I put my mind to. These days I wake up and think......shit my joints and muscles hurt. I come home from work and most days I'm ready to just fall asleep. Rinse and repeat. Its all down hill after about 43.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

I do not live my life to it's full potential but I do try to make the best of each day. Every day that I wake up is a good one. Whether I'm sick, hungover or just plain ol' dog ass tired, I'm grateful to see another day. Surfing, fishing, my dogs and Netflix are all just bonuses in life. Family is a must have for me and I know I'd be a different person without my wife and son. Ooh, and gummy bears. I fricken love gummy bears. facelick

The mundanity of work is what it is but it puts food on the family table.

Aside from that, I absolutely still live life to the fullest although it can be a juggle with a lot of other responsibilities. But family and I are always doing something, just about every weekend. Very little idle time. I've done a lot in my life - maybe not as much as I could have in hindsight but no regrets at all. I am still doing the things I used to do but it's even cooler since I now get to see my kids stocked on all the stuff they get to see and do outdoors.

Am seriously looking forward to having a weekend alone with the wife in Idyllwild and hiking San Jacinto with her in a couple weeks. And then camping Sequoia with family after that. And then camping in San Clemente after that. And then... well, you get the picture. smile2

Excel and enjoy. Follow your passions.

No one ever looks back on their life and thinks of all the things they could have gotten done at work. Live life well, enjoy the time and fun with loved ones, everything else is peripheral inconsequential bullshit by comparison.

I never think, today is going to be great day.


Who knows what the future holds?


incompetence is preferable to malice.

I think I do.

I drive a cubicle doing boring spreadsheet monkey stuff most days but it provides a decent living for my family and I don't dread doing the work. In some way I enjoy it and realize I'm lucky enough to have a job that I don't hate. Most times of the year I am home in time to play with my kids and cook dinner. I live in Hawaii next to good waves and have enough time to surf weekends and maybe after work if the swell is really good. Wife is a stay at home mom and keeps the ship on the right course. I wake up every day happy to be me. I have no complaints. Its my version of the best life.

I've been chatting online with babes all day, so you tell me.


I'll be able to slap it, but I'm not going to have time to flip it and rub it down

I make the most of it. I only work 40 hours a week and 3 of that is for physical activity, so 37. I do spend more time traveling outside normal schedule.

I've had a good run of uncrowded surf my whole life. Grew up surfing DE, MD, VA, OBX. Mostly uncrowded. At times desolate. Surf DMJ and Mugu fairly uncrowded most of the time. IB is always uncrowded because of water quality.

My happiness depends alot on waves I'm surfing.

Surfed enough places to be happy but cant say I've "surfed all over the world".
