Life in Color 2014

Hello everyone! I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted or updated the blog. I’m up here in Maryland for the weekend to attend the Life in Color festival in Washington, DC! It’s a first of many for me as I’ve never been to a major music festival, nor have I ever been to a paint party. I’m hoping I get some green paint…

But anyway, I’m updating the blog to post my latest mix dedicated to the event! So feel free to give it a listen! (You can even right click the link and select Save As to save the mix to your computer!

Digital Memories

Digital MemoriesIt seems as though when people come and go, the only thing we have left of them are memories. As tough as life can be, when people leave this world at such a young age, it can truly be heart breaking. This post is about a friend of mine, who I used to work with while in the Marine Corps.

A year ago, Jon had everything going for him. His wife was pregnant with his baby daughter, he had just been approved for re-enlistment to the Marine Corps. He was even going to change his MOS to become a Forward Observer and be promoted to a Sergeant. But little did we know that the weekend of our unit’s Marine Corps Ball would be the last time we ever saw or spoke to each other. Continue reading

It’s Gym Time!

So it’s been a while since I last posted anything again, but life has been getting pretty busy nowadays.

For starters, I’ve got a new job, and it pays pretty well even though I’m just a temp. In about a month I’ll be hired on permanently and my pay will go UP. But for now, funds are simply on cruise control.

Now that I’ve got the new job, I’ve been hitting the gym pretty much everyday. I’ve been going to the gym for about a month now, which is about how long I’ve been at this new job. When I started, I was at 165 lbs. A month later, I now weigh 175 lbs. And my end goal is 200 lbs by Christmas time.

Random Update

Heyo, it’s been a while since I last updated this thing. Big things are afoot in my world. Just finished my first term of college, and I’m pretty sure I got A’s across the board. I’ll hopefully be moving into an apartment complex here in Roanoke, and I’m totally looking forward to it.

After the move, I’ll be slowly tinkering away with my gadgets that I’ve been playing with lately. If anyone’s ever played with an Arduino micro-controller, it’s super useful. I’m slowly developing a light system for Mido that will enable her to have audio equalizer lights along each spoke of her wheels. She’ll also have lights along her side stripes, as well as redoing her underglows so that all her lights can display whatever color I want.

I’ll also be slowly purchasing lighting equipment for parties that way my friend and I can rock the house in style. We recently DJ’d for a highlighter party at a local Applebee’s, and somehow they turned that place into a night club, on a Wednesday night no less. The place was poppin’, though it did lack some lighting. It was my first time DJing at an event live, and it was exhilarating. So we agreed I’d get the lights since my friend already has all the DJ equipment.
