Dream Journal 1

Okay so I am letting you into a crazy part of my life. I hope you can respect…you don’t have to like…just respect.

1/11/2007
Was in Fatima’s new house with new parents. Huge house-----seemed to take up the whole block. It was also downtown somewhere, possibly little Italy. In a bedroom on the second floor, I looked out the window to see my car parked in the shade with the back end in first. I remember seeing a “Go Florida Gators” logo on the back of my car. I for some reason became outraged and told Fatima that there are certain things I can tolerate/deal with, but that sticker was not one of them. I tried to find my way out of the house but was having a hard time. Fatima seemed to be distracting me from the exit or just decided to take the quick way out.

I raced outside to be stalled again by a police car. I made my way around the car and ran to where I knew my car was parked, but it was not there. I saw it down the street getting ready to turn left and saw Fatima putting a…

Sad Day

Current mood: touched Category: Life

I got some sad news today. My uncle John D'amico, who was very influential and inspirational in my life, passed last week. What is quite ironic about it is that I called him the week before to talk with him and tell him how much I loved and appreciated him. He had cancer of the blood and bones. He was in lots of pain, but the medication and his faith, helped to keep the pain at bay.
John ministered too me when I was 18 every day until I was 20. He shared with me the most amazing stories about life, his life and how blessed he was to have three amazing children, Janet, Johnny, and Missy. I remember the summer of 89 when i moved to pensacola florida and lived with him on the beach. It was a blessing. I was actually right across the street from the most amazing white beaches in the world. It was a small 2 bedroom condo and they let me live on the couch. I was so thankful. I lived there for 4 months until i finally moved into town and got …

Kick Ay-ASS ride. Current mood: determined

Okay so today, i was going to leave at 6:30 for my 100 mile ride but couldn't because my ipeeeed wasn't charged so i had to charge it for 20 minutes. I was worried that it would last the ride, but lo and behold it got me all the way to bonsall and back and crapped out just before arriving at the bottom of grape.

So the ride was kick ass. I managed to maintain almost 17 mph the whole ride. I was actually at 21-24 on the flats and lost some on the hills. On the way down the 76 it started getting scary because there is no bike lane so i really had to hold my line and concentrate.
I sent out the vibe to the universe that I was going to do 100 miles and i did just that. The old Chad would have said that he could never do that...but the new chad knows better. The new Chad can do anything. I am actually listening to Frou Frou right now on the garden state soundtrack. I love that song.

I stopped at Java Depot and met Marc with SDBC. I am going to be riding with them this year. I si…

Getting my Real Estate license

Getting my Real Estate License Current mood: chipper Category: Goals, Plans, Hopes
So I am stoked about this. This is going to be my next career move that should tie in nicely with event planning. The event planning with feed me and that will allow me to be dry for abit with Real Estate. I signed up for the class which is 249 for the entire course. I start next tuesday at 6pm. I am looking forward to this new challange.
I am going to be doing some research today on it to see what the best school is out there. If anyone has suggestions I am open to em.
Today was a good note. The weather here in San Diego was gloomy with a slight chill in the air. The bike shop was dead. We probably had 20 customers all day. Very slow. I took time to read while at work. I tried to read a little bit of the Reader and another magazine.
Everyone left at work today because it was so slow. Simon and I were the only 2 there until close. Carlos and Eric Chipped in to help bring the bikes in which …

Cool day off...Silent Civilian Night

Current mood: contemplative
Today was pretty cool. I actually woke up after 5 hours after falling asleep. I don't have the ability to sleep in anymore. I need to get back to my early morning rising. I have way too much to do. This blog takes at least an hour....plus i post on blogspot as well. If your interested in seeing that one...let me know.
At noon yesterday, I went on another ride. I know...you will say I am crazy. I love riding. Yesterday...i realized that i was totally there in the ride. I wasn't thinking about my ex...I wasn't thinking about my bills, I was focusing on the white line. Those of you that ride will know what I am talking about. It is a line on the side of the rode that separates the car lane from the bike lane. When you stare at it, you become entranced. Next think you know you are further down the road than you previously remembered.
Yesterday was brutal. The head wind kept me at 16mph where I could normally do 22. Going down torrey pines...I can norma…
