We all need goals in life… and I have decided I need to make some Goals for 2017.
1. Loose Weight
I would like to get under 200 pounds. Right now I’m well north of 200 pounds of plumpness. To this I’m going to have to eat healthier, stop chugging soda and start working out.
2. Drive into a Hurricane
Yes you read that right. In 2014 I witnessed a powerful EF4 tornado and this year I accidentally drove inside a weak EF1 tornado (stupid, I know.) This year I would really like to witness a hurricane – however I will be just as happy if none make landfall.
3. Take A Cross Country Train Trip
I have enough points saved up for a cross country train trip in a private room with all meals included. I want to do that. I’m hoping to do it in spring, before the tourism season starts but still when its nice and you can get a great view.
4. Learn a New Programming Language
I’m not sure which language I would like to learn, but I would like to add to my skill-set so I can do more cool things.
5. Become a General
Yea, you read that right. This year I would like to become a general class amateur radio operator. Its a class of license you get from the Federal Communications Commission. Right now I hold a technician class license. A general class license would allow me more privileges.

After a threat I received from my ex girlfriend last month I am forced to make a decision. It is one that over the last month that I have weighed heavily on and a decision that I feel I am now forced to make. Continue reading “Coming Out About Something”
Hot tub and then swimming laps. Hopefully it works. Doctor ordered.
I had a voucher for free Amtrak Travel that expired Monday, and as it was a beautiful day Monday I decided I would take an adventure through Chicago for the day. Continue reading “Chicago Trip”
This morning I went to the Kalamazoo Farmer’s Market, its become a regular Saturday morning ritual for me, something that I will miss now that the summer season is coming to a close. Continue reading “Kalamazoo Farmer’s Market”

I’m at the Kalamazoo City Commission debate and spotted this. LOL.
