Skydiving

I’ve never experienced that moment where you jump out of a plane thousands of feet in the air, and just completely dip over hundred miles per, while returning back to earth. The thrill, and adrenaline that come with the territory must be exciting, and scary at the same time. I’ve always wanted to go skydiving, and I think I’m going to make it a goal to do in the summer. But, I can’t help but to think about the whole process leading up to it. How does one mentally prepare for this risky free-fall? But then again, risk is something we encounter everyday. Anything can happen, at any given moment, even the craziest things. I never though that I’d read that coconuts kill people, let alone 15 times more than sharks do. But, I’m sure there are more shark attacks, and the variable that is left out is that people are missing limbs, although alive. Obviously death is the worst outcome, so I’m not challenging that at all. Anyways, back to skydiving!

I think the thing I look forward the most about skydiving would be the view while your free falling. That’s an experience like no other, and it only last so long. Of course, you can always do it again, but every first experience is special. All I know is that it’s bound to be a great time, and I plan on doing it as it’s something on the bucket list. I’m no adrenaline junkie, but I look forward to get the ole blood flowing, and order a side of goosebumps!

I’ll end this with a question, have you ever gone skydiving, and how was the experience leading up to, during, and after it was over?

More Art; Nature


This artwork was made only about a year ago for an Art class in college. I’ve mentioned before how I don’t think I’m an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but the truth is that everyone is an artist in ways. The beauty of art is that anything no matter how poorly one might think something looks, there’s always someone who likes it. It’s all personal based, which is why I always believed that art can’t be truly graded. This artwork is nature based, as well as was inspired by Emily Dickinson’s quote “Nature is what we see”.

Place I want to Visit: Part III


The return of the Places I want to Visit has arrived! This place doesn’t even seem real to me when I first saw the pictures of it. But, it’s beauty is perfectly carved out, and the first picture you will see is one of the coolest things I think I ever saw. Call me crazy but it looks like a UFO beam of light entering an opening within the canyon.

Back at it with some Art!


Found this in my journal, so this was made in middle school. And I don’t find myself to be an artist by an stretch of the imagination, but this is one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever done. It appears I had some skills back in the day! Enjoy, and I’ll be back to blogging more regularly soon!

Math Poem


I found a journal I wrote in middle school, about a year ago in my house. It’s so interesting to see what I wrote, and compare it to how I felt now. I must say, I was kind of proud to see some of the things I wrote back then because maturity wasn’t at a high in those days. Anyways, in that journal I found a Math poem I had to write for a Math class. It was an interesting assignment because it didn’t have to do with numbers, but instead turning math terms into poetry. Now, I wrote this in 6th grade, so bare with the spelling and other errors. There definitely is a good amount, but it’s not that hard to read. Anyways, without further ado…

 

At the Point where are paths intersect

That is when I received respect

Your feeling for me make me feel prime

Life has become rational all the time

You have been a ray of sunshine

and you will always be mine

You are the foundation and base of my being

The length and width the breadth of my love

for you is beyond seeing

Places I want to Visit: Part II


Well, this is part II to a series of more posts to come. There is a so many places I want to visit, so expect a bunch of these. I did say it would be a weekly series in the Part I post, but I can’t wait that long. So, I already said I wanted to visit Montana’s Glacier National Park, and now my next destination I want to visit is Oregon’s Mount Hood. The pictures below only capture a bit of how beautiful the mountain, and surrounding area really are. Now I’ve never been here, lie most of the places I’ll be listing, but if my fortunes ever change I’d love to travel and visit these places.
