live your dream

saw this video Christmas eve and really liked it. i admire his filming capabilities as well as his message "live your dream". thats what i want people to remember this Christmas: "live your dream!" seriously, we only have one life to live so why waste it doing something you don't enjoy? i am thankful that God respects and honors our hearts and our hopes and dreams. just a little reminder. also i am thankful for jesus' birth and his life saving sacrifice.

i stated a new blog called what i see, what i read, what i hear. its not taking anything away from this blog but focusing on my thoughts on films i watch, books i read, and music i listen to. hopefully it will give people some ideas and helpful insight on books, movies, music they might not know about. mainly its for me to just talk about what i am into and verbalizing it. still working on the blog layout, very simple right now. so check it out.

after many long and empty weeks on this blog, i have comeback to spread Christmas joy! i had a great time in san diego with family but now i'm getting ready to move into a new house, head to Connecticut for Xmas, training on my bike, working on projects for the Idaho Supreme Court, stop motion project for Idaho Potato Commission, and getting ready to start a project for WINCO (a northwest grocery store). life is busy, life is good. i have also been trying to use my camera to stay creative. i am letting my friend joey borrow it as he heads to sudan, africa in january for 2 weeks to film a documentary for his church. so here are some pics/vids:

greetings from iceland

had to post something here so here it is. we have hitched around the south and just made it up by bus to the north. it is gorgeous here and vast. hard to capture with a camera. places to look up to wet your appetite: gulfoss, gysir, blue lagoon. all freaking sweet places. internet time is running out. peace in the frozen east!

after work, i went to a friend of a friend's pool yesterday with some of my friends. we jumped off the diving board and threw a football around and played with inflatables and hunted for a rock at the deep end. someone asked if i could walk on my hands and instantly came to mind the countless attempts mom and i used to challenge each other on vacations to see who could walk the farthest or stay as straight-legged. brought a smile to my face. i can see the progression in my life when certain things make me smile about her instead of hurting my heart like it used to. i am a work in progress...

recent adventures pt. 1

for the past month probably, i have been adventuring. here's a glimpse at them. (enjoy)

blue lake pt. 1

phil and i went up to blue lake which is 2 1/2 hrs north of nampa. its a little lake in the mountains. we spent the day up there hiking around and swimming. while we were there 2 storm systems were on our sides while the weather stayed fairly nice. the water was refreshing, the scenery was beautiful, and it was just a great time for phil and i to hangout. we actually went back up the next weekend (this past weekend) with his youth group for a "studs only" camping trip, more on that soon (gotta get my pics developed.) enjoy the pics....

oregon adventure

i went to oregon a couple weekends ago to surprise my dad and brother for their birthdays, but there wasn't a surprise, the surprise was found out. o-well. i spent a handful of hours in portland by myself just strolling around. it was an awesome time but was glad to meet up with mi familia (it's spanish). we had a a great birthday party for my dad and brother, just visiting with family. we walked through a forest trail and then hit up the coast one day. here are zee pics....

craters of the moon

joey and i went one saturday to craters of the moon, which is 2 1/2 hrs east of Boise. it is a lava field, some craters, lava tubes, and just a ton of dried lava everywhere. we got in for free because it was "free day"! it is a very cool place to visit and you can hike through old lava tubes and hike around a lava crater. here are some pics....

evening bike rides

every evening for awhile my friend joey, phil, and i or just joey and i would bike at sunset. it's a cooler time during the day and there's not a lot of traffic. here are some pics from that..... (most of these pics are taken with my cell phone except a couple)
