AAAAND I’ve got some stuff to tell the world of the internet. Well, it’s more of why I haven’t been here and what’s going on on junk. You know, like an update.
Well, On Monday(the day after Christmas), my dad and I left for West Texas, the most boring place in the world and the home of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas. I’ve been there before, in the summer, with my church, and it was great. This was not great. There was lots and lots of snow. On Tuesday, we were supposed to hike up to Guadalupe Peak, but we only got about halfway on account of snow drifts that were as tall as me and my dad is extremely out of shape. It took us 3 and a half hours to get halfway. It took us an hour and a half to get back down. On Wednesday, MY BIRTHDAY, we hiked this trail called Devil’s Hall. I had done this trail with my church when I came before. It’s a great trail that goes into a riverbed type thing and is really rocky, and at the end, there’s a big natural staircase and a “hallway” that has mountain walls running up either side. It’s awesome, in the summer. On the middle of December when there’s snow and ice, it sucks. We got most of the way through that trail, but we didn’t get quite to the end. After we got back to the trail head, we went to Balmorhea State Park, a wildlife reserve about 2 and a half hours away from the Guadalupe Mountains. My dad made steak on our little camp grill for MY BIRTHDAY, and then we basically layed around and watched TV (cause we were in a hotel). Yesterday, it took us awhile to get up, but when we did, my dad made pancakes. After we got ready for the day, we went out and took a few shots of video because that’s what my dad does for fun. Then we got our dive stuff together and went down to their “pool,” which is more of a confined lake, but whatever. It has a lot of fish and plants in it. We went for a dive. It was pretty long; about an hour. When we got out and dried off, we went to the little Mexican Restaurant in town. Turns out, the town of Balmorhea has 479 people in it. Then we went back to our room and watched The Big Bang Theory. Today, we loaded everything in the car and went home. It took us about 7 hours to get here, but we’re finally home. Thank the Lord.
So, now I’m home and I have internet! (Did I mention the only internet I had all week was from my phone, which sucks.) And I know I’m kinda late but,
Hello! Salutations! Greetings! Welcome! :D
I’m posting this from my phone (which just doesn’t happen). i’m in my tent about to go to sleep. today, we drove,like, 9 hours out to west texas to guadelupe mountains national park. we didnt realize when we left how bad the weather would be. 40 degrees and falling with at least 25 mph winds and p, like, a foot of snow. SNOW. THAT JUST WASNT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. so now i’m toasty in my sleeping bag, but my dad and i are highly debating going to a hotel tomorrow night. it’s ungodly out here. D:
The Christmas load this year was actually smaller than it normally is. I’m only commenting on this because of all the posts I’m seeing about ungrateful teenagers that didn’t get exactly what they wanted and are complaining about it. I understand if you wanted something and you didn’t get it, but I’m sure there’s a reason for that. I, personally, wasn’t asking for all that much this year; just a new Ipod and some workout clothes. But the kids that wanted an Ipad and a car and an Iphone, but instead got diamonds, an Ipod and a different phone, I don’t see why you need to complain or say you hate your parents. I mean, that stuff is really expensive, and if you haven’t noticed, the economy isn’t exactly in the best shape. And on top of that, if you’re old enough to be asking for this stuff, you must be somewhere around college age, and I know if your parents are like mine, they’re psying for a big chunk of your college. So, I don’t think any of you have the right to say you hate, or even don’t like, your parents. You obviously don’t deserve an Ipad or a car, etc if you’re going to say such horrible things about the people that raised you and bought you all of your possessions. You are, obviously, quite spoiled enough, I would say.
Commenting on my first sentence, though my load was smaller, I was equally as thankful and happy with what I received because I know my parents and family love me and did their best to make me happy.
Well, last night my family opened our “family” presents, as we always do on Christmas Eve. I got Three Cds from my brother, some workout clothes and a case for my bass from my parents, a $50 Visa card from my Grandparents, a Target card and a $25 gift card from my aunt and uncle, and a $50 Barnes and Noble gift card from my Grandpa. This morning, I woke my brother up at 9 and we went into the living room to see our “Santa” gifts. He got a box set full of every Pink Floyd album ever. I got a new 160 GB Ipod Classic which I named Maleficent. The rest of my day basically consisted of putting music on my Ipod, eating, watching TV, and getting ready for my trip tomorrow.
What? I didn’t tell you? My dad and I are leaving for West Texas to hike up mountains and Scuba dive in springs. It’s gon be fun(:
Client: I don’t think of our company as a brand.
Me: Well, we’re providing an organized service to a wide client base under a singular banner. The company is absolutely a brand.
Client: I don’t know… I think of companies like Nikon and Canon as a brand. They put their names on things. What do we put our name on? I just don’t think we’re a brand.
Me: What if I made you a t-shirt with the company name on it?
Client: Well, that would change everything.
So Nick got the Pink Floyd Discovery Box Set, which has a remaster of every Pink Floyd Album, and I got a new 160 Gig Ipod Classic.
We are best friends right now. :3
