The Mark Sanford Scandal...

So today i awoke to the LA times discussing the Mark Sanford scandal about him being unfaithful to his wife and possibly using tax payers money to finance his trip to see his mistress. I am sharing my opinions on this. Why did Mark Sanford do this? Why did he cheat on his wife? Was he thinking about his kids? Were tax funds used to finance this trip? These are all valid questions, however, I am just going to share my concerns over the pertinent information.

Lets start with the obvious. Mark Sanford had an affair. Is it uncommon? Not at all. Statistics say that somewhere in the neighborhood of 55-65% of marriages have infidelity in either direction. So then why is this a big deal? Because he is a public official and public officials are held to the highest moral standard possible. Is this just and fair? In my humbled opinion, the answer is, No.
We tend to put too much faith in a man and get disappointed when that man or woman lets us down. Very much like the clinton scand…

A quick note about a friend...

So my best friend Noah had to have major oral surgery yesterday. Long story short, he was involved in a car accident when he was 20. He had to have two implants removed yesterday. My stomach was in knots all day yesterday for him. I got a text at about 2 that the surgery was done and was a success.

All i can say is he is the biggest trouper I know. I personally know that I would have had to be under to have that surgery done. I would have passed out 10 times over during. When he came home he was swollen and a little sore. I sent him good vibes and tried to check in on him.
He is home today recovering and I wish him a speedy recovery. Send him tons of love and wish for the same. I know he would appreciate the sentiment. He is on facebook as Noah Unsworth or NoahtheStud.
Until next time...

After the prom...

So yesterday i went with my friends on an 80's prom crawl. We rented a 45 person party bus, metat pacifica in Del Mar and soon we were off.

We loaded on the bus and began the journey downtown. The itinerary was simple. Jack's in La Jolla, then tower 23 in PB, J-Bar Downtown, Universal in Hillcrest, and finished up at the Whiskey Girl in the gaslamp. I ended up being the wrangler. I made sure that everyone stayed on task and that everyone was on the bus. I can't take all the credit, Noah the Duke, ended up helping as well.
Noah got voted as kick ass duke...an honor we all wish we could have bestowed upon us. It was a good night. It got crazy the closer we got to the end of the night. I think the alcohol had an effect on all. People were singing, and being crazy and there was a bunch of high school stuff going on.
So all in all it was a great night. Lots of craziness, one cat fight, one angry police officer because we parked the bus in the middle of market, plenty of…
