The day after Christmas, I woke up and felt like there was no hope in the future. My military career is over with, after 12 years of serving, and my current relationship is almost over with, due to not being able to find a job in the area. The only thing left, is to return home, and hope that everything works out. I will be happy being near family, but overall I won't! At the end of the day, I will still be, and feel alone! As of right now, I'm applying for employment anywhere.


Red flag!

I think my girlfriend misses her ex boyfriend.  Why? She talks about him pretty much everyday, good or bad. Most of the time bad, but lately shes been talking about all of the fun things they did. Im sorry Im not a beach guy, or into hiking alot. They do have alot of great memories, Im sure, but you are with me now. At first, hearing all of the bad things, and her hatred towards seeing him around, and in pictures, gave me the feeling that she'd never go back to him, but as of late, Im very unsure. Is this a problem?

I got my eyes dilated, this morning. Can't see crap! Everything outside seems blurry. I will survive though ; )

Johnny Manziel shirts find their way to clearance rack

Following Johnny Manziel’s atrocious NFL starting debut against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, it appears this one store has officially stopped buying into the Johnny Football hype.
A photo that was posted on Twitter shows some Manziel shirts already on a clearance rack.
Manziel completed 10-of-18 passes for 80 yards and two interceptions in Cleveland’s disastrous 30-0 loss to the division-leading Bengals.
After trotting out horrendous quarterback after horrendous quarterback throughout the past two-plus decades, Browns fans have to be somewhat worried about Manziel’s performance.
Browns head coach Mike Pettine announced on Monday that Manziel will start the team’s Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers next week. Hopefully Manziel can improve on what was a horrendous performance against Cincinnati.



Possible job

Found a possible job working on Pearl Harbor/Hickam AFB. It pays $15 per hour. It's a step down in pay, but also a start. Hopefully it works out. I will also be looking to start school soon also, but that will be once I get settled in to what ever job I choose.


Apartment searching on craigslist.....

Found 4 apartments/houses in the Decatur, 5 in Springfield, 7 in Chicago, and 4 in Terre Haute, Indiana. All close to home! Now, all I need to find is a job! Preferably in Chicago! Still searching in Hawai'i, but it's just too expensive, and not a very good place to start a new career. Still trying though. Anyway! Time to tweak up the resume, and start launching it out.


Apartment searching.....

Looking for a place to move in, Peoria, Decatur, Joliet, Naperville, Aurora, Hazel Crest (Illinois), or Terre Haute Indiana. I tried looking for places in the city of Chicago, but not luck. All I could find were apartments in the ghetto. I'm not about to put myself through that. No time for that!


End Of Active Service

No longer wanting to continue the process of re-enlisting in the military. My new EAS (End Of Active Service) date is January 17th. I believe its the best decision, and very happy to leave on a positive note. Even though, I'm very sick to my stomach of how this all came about. Its just sad, that after 12 years, I finally realized that this isn't for me. As for where I'm going, I don't know. It all depends where the good lord takes me. I will be looking for employment in Hawaii, and also Illinois. For everyone that I have met, and worked with, during my 12 years of service, it was a pleasure meeting, and serving with you. I'm looking forward to the future, and also getting to know my family more, after serving for so long in the military.

Raven-Symone Slams Story Claiming Bill Cosby Assaulted Her

Raven-Symone is speaking out against a story that ran on a parody news site claiming Bill Cosby molested her when she was a child actress on The Cosby Show.

The parody news site Hip Hop Hangover ran a story this week stating Symone had filed molestation charges against Cosby.

"I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show," Symone wrote on her Instagram account Wednesday.  "I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"

Symone, 28, played Olivia from 1989-1992 on The Cosby Show.

Cosby is facing resurfaced allegations of sexual assault, which have prompted NBC to scrap a planned series, Netflix to "postpone" a comedy special, and TV Land to pull repeats of The Cosby Show. Cosby has denied the allegations through statements from his reps and attorneys. The most recent allegation came Tuesday from former supermodel Janice Dickinson, who alleged Cosby raped her in 1982.

Asics Shorts

I went on a 10.50 mile run, this morning in these. I bought them off of eBay, for only $5. They were only worn once. Not a bad steal. They fit very comfortable.

Running apparel startup Janji helps fund clean water initiatives in Africa, Peru, India

Brookline-based Janji is a running apparel startup with a lofty mission that goes beyond profit: to help people in underdeveloped countries get access to clean water through the sale of its clothing. To date, the startup has raised $50,000 since its founding in 2010 for global clean water initiatives in Africa, Peru and Bangladesh, with India on the horizon next spring, and is continuing to launch new e-commerce projects to help solve the crisis. Janji's latest social project aims to raise $500 to help a water sanitization project in rural Uganda in partnership with Washington, D.C.-based Evidence Action. As part of the project, an original Janji shirt design is available exclusively from Oct. 27 to Nov. 2. If 50 shirts are pre-ordered, about a quarter of the proceeds will help sanitize drinking water for about 300 Ugandan residents through Evidence Action. "This is a trial run and our goal is to try to help our customers in the running community feel closer and more connected to these projects we're working on," said Mike Burnstein, co-founder of Janji. The project, which Burnstein hopes will be the first of many, can also act as a "lab" to test different designs, Burnstein said. The project is currently about halfway funded. Janji sells its apparel through its website and in about 100 running stores around the country including City Sports. The company has raised $450,000 to date from undisclosed owners of top running stores in the country and angel investors since its founding in 2010, Burnstein said. Each of the products' designs are inspired by the different countries Janji hopes to make a tangible social impact in. The company is based in Brookline and employs four full time. runjanji.com/



According to a study published in theJournal of Sexual Medicine, niacin, or vitamin B3 – found in chicken, fish and grains — may help men with erectile dysfunction if they also have high cholesterol. The results indicate that the men in the study, who had moderate or severe erectile dysfunction, reported an improvement in their ability to maintain an erection after taking a niacin supplement for 12 weeks. The initial dose was 500mg niacin taken nightly to ensure that they had no adverse side effects from taking the vitamin. The dose was increased to 1000mg daily and then to 1500mg at week six, if tolerated, and then continued until the end of the study. The most common side effect was skin flushing and itching. Further studies are warranted.

Signs of Low Testosterone

As the human body ages it not only changes physical appearance but also the internal functions start to express differences. Hormone production starts to deteriorate and our overall health starts to show decline. By the age 30, men are more likely to see symptoms of low testosterone and in turn struggle with various symptoms caused by low testosterone. Testosterone is responsible for the stimulation of sperm production, muscle development, bone mass and also sexual desire. When there is a sudden drop of testosterone production a range of complications and symptoms may become apparent. In most cases, low T is mistaken for common aging; but low testosterone could in turn be the common cause of many aging health ailments.

Common Symptoms of Low Testosterone

When an individual is trying to determine if they are struggling with common aging or low testosterone, there are several warning signs to look for. The following are signs and common symptoms one could experience with low testosterone: Low sex drive – testosterone is the key player when it comes to a males libido. The desire to participate in intercourse decreases and in some instances it becomes more difficult for the male to achieve an orgasm. Erectile dysfunction – even though testosterone doesn’t create an erection on its own, it does stimulate the overall sex drive. When sexual stimulators stop producing nitric oxide that triggers erection, low testosterone becomes linked to erectile dysfunction. Low semen levels also can be a counterpart of erectile dysfunction and low T. Low energy/fatigue - those struggling with low testosterone have reported repeatedly they experience extreme fatigue and a decrease in energy levels; even when sufficient sleep was being acquired. Muscle mass loss – testosterone plays a major role in the development and strengthening of muscle. Low T becomes apparent when an individual is experiencing a decrease in muscle mass; especially in arms, chest and legs. Rebuilding muscle mass also becomes more complicated over time. Increase in body fat mass - men with low testosterone are now not only struggling with low muscle mass, but the increase in body fat. There is no clear reason as to why the decrease in testosterone causes weight gain, but it continues to be a common symptom within men with low T. The following are several other symptoms of low testosterone: •Emotional complications (ie. mood swings, depression, irritability, sadness, lack of focus) •Hair loss •Decrease in bone mass •Genital numbness •Shrinkage

Exercise That'll Make You Faster

Ass to Grass Overhead Squat (OHS) WHY: Trail runners need a lot of power—through a large range of motion—to run fast and efficiently. This is especially true when the terrain heads uphill or is very technical, requiring maximum agility. The overhead squat is a time-tested exercise requiring full-body range of motion. It takes some practice to get the OHS right, but there is no better exercise to encourage maximal gluteal and hamstring activation. You will gain strength and neuromuscular power you could never hope to achieve on a squat machine or with a typical half-depth standing squat. HOW: Do this with a partner to help analyze your form, if possible. Stand with heels as wide as shoulders, toes pointing slightly out, and arms overhead, elbows locked. Squat down as low as you can, encouraging gluteal contraction, and keeping your back as straight as possible. If you can't do a full squat at first, hold on to something stationary at shoulder height. Start by doing three sets of 10 this way, and work up to doing three sets of 10 with your arms overhead.

The name he is using is Sean Murdock and he calls people from the phone number - show contact info. This guy is acting like he is the owner of the property and he just moved to Texas, and telling everyone that they can go check out the property. Also, isn't it strange that this person who is acting like the owner cannot even pronounce the street/city name correctly? Make sure you do your due diligence ....check the property tax records out to find out who the actual owner of the property is!

The Moon


In the summer of 1996, a swarm of 4,070earthquakes was recorded at Lōʻihi. This series included more earthquakes than any other swarm in Hawaiian recorded history. The swarm altered 10 to 13 square kilometres (4 to 5 sq mi) of the seamount's summit; one section, Pele's Vents, collapsed entirely upon itself and formed the renamed Pele's Pit. The volcano has remained relatively active since the 1996 swarm and is monitored by theNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The Hawaii Undersea Geological Observatory (HUGO) provided real-time data on Lōʻihi between 1997 and 2002. Lōʻihi last erupted in 1996, before the earthquake swarm of that summer.


Lōʻihi began forming around 400,000 years ago and is expected to begin emerging above sea level about 10,000–100,000 years from now. At its summit, Lōʻihi Seamount stands more than 3,000 m (10,000 ft) above the seafloor, making it taller than Mount St. Helens was before its catastrophic 1980 eruption. The summit is currently 975 m (3,000 ft) below sea level. A diverse microbial community resides around Lōʻihi's manyhydrothermal vents.


Lōʻihi Seamount is an active submarine volcano located around 35 km (22 mi) off the southeast coast of the island of Hawaiʻi[6]about 975 m (3,000 ft) below sea level. This seamount lies on the flank of Mauna Loa, the largest shield volcano on Earth. Lōʻihi meaning "long" in Hawaiian, is the newest volcano in the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain, a string of volcanoes that stretches over 5,800 km (3,600 mi) northwest of Lōʻihi and the island of Hawaiʻi. Unlike most active volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean that make up the active plate margins on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Lōʻihi and the other volcanoes of the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain arehotspot volcanoes and formed well away from the nearest plate boundary. Volcanoes in the Hawaiian Islands arise from the Hawaiʻi hotspot, and as the youngest volcano in the chain, Lōʻihi is the only Hawaiian volcano in the deep submarine preshield stage of development.

Eating a small piece of chocolatecan give you a quick, natural energy boost, says Teitelbaum. Chocolate contains a modest amount of caffeine, along with theobromine, caffeine's gentler cousin. Plus, in moderation, it isn't as bad for you as you think. "People don't realize that chocolate is a health food," he says. "It's full of phenols and other antioxidants that keep the heart and brain healthy."

The darker the chocolate, the more nutrients, caffeine, and theobromine you'll get. But Teitelbaum says even breaking off a few squares of a milk-chocolate Hershey's bar can do the trick. Just don't eat more than 1 ounce a day—that's a little more than half of your average bar—because chocolate still has a lot of sugar and fat.

The key to a happier, healthier you



I've been using this product for years now. If you're looking for a good hair removal product, this is it. All you simply do is apply the lotion to your legs, and let it set for atleast 5 minutes. Once you have let it set for 5 minutes, you then hop into the shower. The hair that you wish to get rid of will simply fall off. No razor, or warm towel needed. Its a easy process.
