Talking I Quit!!!!

I just put in my 2 weeks notice today and man it feels great I no longer have to wake up and go to a job I hate doing plus it was a boring behind the desk 40hrs a week or more if a job needed to be finished but no overtime pay as I was salaried.

So now Im starting Calvary Chapel Bible College online and going back to a minimum wage part-time job so I can focus entirely on College. If i really focus I can earn a Bachelors in Biblical Sciences in just 2 years!!!!! But before I get to invovled in college im def. want to travel for a few months (bumming around kinda) just around the US and see a lil more of this country and world. I mean a got a motorcycle that gets 70mpg soo why not. haha

So yeah today is a GREAT day with a lot to look forward to now that I FINALLY have some direction in my life.

The Ninja 250 is supposed to be a tough little bike. My first and only bike was a 1984 Honda CB 125S single piston and a banana seat but man was it fun!!

I learned on my bike and it sure can take a lot plus Ive shattered a few misconceptions of "you ride a 250 isnt that slow?" from some lets just call them mis-informed people

Nice, thxone I bet you got all the attention of the road huh?

As a matter of fact that bike turned alot of heads. I had it in 2001 and it only had 3000 miles on it and the rest of the bike was near perfect. 18" spoked rims front and back, drum brakes, and it sat high, the single piston had that cool thumper sound....I miss that bike. I always wore blue jeans, black boots and a black leather jacket when I rode it....those were the good times....the car full of drunk and drugged up kids that ran a stop sign was the bad times Broken pinky, shoulder, and knee....I haven't rode since. but I will!!

haha yeah that kinda is actually, but thats just the name of the degree im going for. All the classes are either direct research and reading of the books in the bible, sections in the bible, and theres kinda life sciences like how to apply what youve learned and christian living. I always hated the idea of extra-schoolins haha after high school but this Id do even if I didnt get a degree at the end thats just a NICE bonus.

me.... aviation flight management. aka. proffesional pilot. what theology has to do wit that.... idk, but its a requirement from the school. speaking of which i just DESTROYED my foamie plane outside, again. lol. yesterday i blew it up after a failed blender attempt, i missed the flat spin so it didnt deccelerate enough and 45 degreed into pavement. just now, practicing inverted harriers and on roll out a tree branch caught the wing tip and plowed it to the ground.... guess its time to buy another one, good by 70 dollars, for just the plane itself. pictures shall be found in pic thread. story will continue from there.

I haven't been on for a while, I've been busy going to a calvary chapel-based discipleship school and getting involved in full time ministry. It's good to hear that there's a good Christian community developing on here. well, I'm leaving the country in a few days to go to Chiapas Mexico (very southern by Guatemala), so see ya!

ooo have fun emo, hopefully its a decent placce in mexico, i enjoyed my mexico trip but it was cancun sooo it was obviously nice lol. and im not totally sure what i want to do yet, i'd really like to be in corporate flying gulfstream's bombardiers or dessaults something like that. aerobatics is where its at but you dont make squat for money unless your world class. lol. and i want to do AF but, idk.... also if your a good enough pilot and all this jazz and your eyesight is pretty decent like mine, not perfect but just bad enough to make it very challenging to read the white boards in school to where i need glasses, the military will actually correct your vision. lol.

I'm a non-congregating Christian.....I haven't been to church since the 5th grade, but I believe in God and pray daily without fail. Does that even count?

Speaking of Hondas and Nissans, I'm auditing a Honda dealership here in town. I drove the 350 back there at lunch....and they loved it....got some compliments from the salesmen, and when I left a bunch of them came out just to watch me pull away. Who woulda thought Honda salesmen would like a Nissan? Go figure....

It's an actual school. It's a school that's meant to equip you and then launch you into ministry.
