Youlikedags...youknowdags ?

So school is about to start ( I know I have been saying that for a while but seriously this time - 10 days), but I just got back from my vacation from vacation. Is it really necessary for me to take a vacation from the city (with 5 beaches within 10 minutes) to a place 12 hours north with 3 huge beaches.

The answer: Yes !

Byron Bay could quite possibly be the greatest place on earth. JJ and I drove up there for a few day, I got up there in a straight 10 hour shot. I was driving solo because she doesn't have a license. What ? 24 year old with out a license ?

It was a great time met lots of people and got drunk with strangers, which is always fun. Met a group of Irish dudes who were high-larious. They spoke just like Brad Pitt from Snatch ! And it never got old, the drunker I got the cooler it sounded. And after a while I even understood a 1/4 of what they were saying. Wish I had subtitles though.

Byron Bay is famous for a little hippie town called Nimbin that's about 35 mins out west from the bay. Needless to stay we stopped by there on our way back. Bought some "goods" from an old grandma slangin' on the streets. Actually everyone was slanging on the streets. It was quite weird . Coming from a non-hippy part of the world, I always associate street slangers with trouble or fiends. Well, they were definitely doped out people slanging, but they were genuinely nice.

Now I'm actually trying to focus on being a designer again, have some projects in the works... 2 websites and a catalog thingy. More on that as it unfolds.

The Winter Oly's started. Pretty cool I guess, not gonna say much because The Redonkulous Linker pretty much has my opinion covered. But we did watch the snowboarding at my house because my roommate and her boyfriend are into it ( apparently so is the rest of the OZ). I enjoyed it, glad to see the US of A spanked everyone. That dude Shawn White is pretty sick.

The VP shot someone... pretty cool ! What's even funnier is that the guy has a lead pellet lodged in the wall of his heart and will probably die... hahahahaha.....uuuhhh.... Seriously? What the Fark ?

I got approached by a guy at the gym today, and no not the normal "what's your sign" and "wanna meet for a coffee later" way, about competitive powerlifting. Damn, just when I thought I was out... it pulls me back in ! Knowing my history of being prone to huge injuries leading to massive surgeries and tons of rehab... I shouldn't even consider it. But then I saw this....

Holy Hell that is amazing ! I would tear both pecs and get a hernia at the same to be able to earn a jacket with that logo on the back ! huh...huh... who is with me ?
Anyway, we'll see what happens. I'll check it out... but honestly I am so weak right now because of the pec surgery I had and the booze. But mostly the pec injury and not the constant state of drunkness I have been in for the last 7 months. I mean a good workout is a good workout... even if your hungover during it and have to take breaks in between sets to go vomit.
Plus I am exploring new avenues now... like yoga and pilates and spin classes. I heard pilates and yoga really help increase bone density and flexibility. Isn't that fascinating ! Who knew !

Oh yeah, and I cut all my hair off. It's all gone. I was done with it.. too hot in this place for luscious locks like mine. Fresh start.

Shaun White is nasty. He's on the cover of Rolling Stone right now. I used to intern for Burton who he rides for. No big deal...
