Here We GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to admit, despite all the nasty side effects of hurricane Katrina and others, Im very excited, almost giddy with anticipation for Ernesto. Luckily, we have bouys all over the Yucatan Striaght as he will march right through, possibly clipping Mexico and Cuba, and I will be able to monitor the building ground swell as he enters the straights and heads for open waters. My gut instinct tells me to head south, to South Padre Island, but with my new job in full swing, I just dont see that happening. Either way, it will get big here, and fast. Im praying for at least headhigh to 3 or 4ft. overhead. I just reeeeaaalllyy need this surf right now, Im feeling desperate. I have surfed 1 time, 1 FREAKING TIME, since I have been back from Mexico, on july 10th. Roughly speaking, I have surfed 1 time in a month and a half. This pattern cannot continue, and Im desperately seaking means to an alternative. Thats what the 2nd job is for hehehe. I will be putting back a large stash of cash and keep building it up until my moment is right. How will I know when that moment is right? Im not sure, but its coming very very very soon, I know that for sure. I can only handle so much more of this crap before I jet off to some unknown locale and try my hand at living there. I have considered California again, but the price of living and cold water keep deterring me. Im starting to consider Australia alot as an option. I have a good friend that can help me get on my feet, I can work illegally, and I can surf all the time. The water might be close to California tempts, but I would much much rather be surfing there than in California (no offence guys!). Blah who knows. Anyways, SURF IS COMING!

This was South Padre Island, Texas yesterday!! DAMMIT! Thats a lie. It is South Padre Island but that was during Hurricane Katrina while she was wrecking shop on the Gulf Coast. Where are the waves???????? Well alot of Texas guys are saying that this could possibly be the flattest summer they remember, and these guys go back a ways. In other news, I now have a second job to start saving hardcore for some classes at UH in the spring (around 900 a pop) and for my next adventure. I wish I had some consistent surf to report about because Im starting to think I only have a great blog running while Im on vacation, and even then, thats questionable. I have been steadily thinking about my next trip and Im exploring all my options. I would really like to return to Costa Rica, but thats just so much money for the duration of time that I want to stay. Its quite possible that I will get 2 months paid vacation next summer to use for my dreams and my never-ending search for waves. I have been also thinking about the future alot. Im catching a little heat from the parents on my lifestyle/education choices and its putting unwanted pressure on me. Im really thinking about driving my car into Mexico next summer so I can have a little more freedom in my explorations but then again, the bus is just so damn cheap! Anyways, Im pretty excited about starting my second job. Its at FedexKinkos, my previous employer. Its a decent job and the pay is also decent but Im really hoping it will take up a sufficient amount of my time to save like CRAZY, relax, and get back into that wierdly missed world of the working. Im waiting for waves.... to come and save me!

Well there isn't much surf right now in ole texas. In fact, I'm starting
to feel like there may never be again. What the hell happened to this
huricane season? Frankly, I'm starting to get dissapointed. Yea yea its
horrible the devastation it causes but really can you blame the storm?
They have existed for who knows how long and no one was hurt. People and
their money hungry brains have built all over the world in major
distaster prone areas with SHODDY construction so I'm beginning to
wonder if I should feel that bad for hoping for a hurricane.
Anyways..... I had a good talk with my roommate tonight. All about
travel, being young and stupid and not following that path that has been
forcefully ingrained into my head since I was a child.
Ahhhhhhh........hhahah that was me really taking a big sigh while I was
typing this. I'm sitting in mollies, playing ping pong, sipping on my
favorite beverage, and I'm just thinking about all the random paths in
my life I have ignored because I was afraid. I'm thinking really hard
about next summer. Yea yea I know I'm living in the future but honestly
with the lack of surf in this place its what's keeping my soul alive,
and I really really mean that. O well. I start my second job hopefully
by the end of next week. Time to work my sillyass off until december
when my primary job will require my services a lot more. Hopefully I can
bring in an extra 1.5k or 2k, pay some things off, and start socking
back for next summer. My goal is at least 2 months in mexico or costa
rica, with 1.5k to spend or more, and possibly taking my car or buying a
junk van or something for the drive. Who knows. All I know for sure is
that this is going to be formatted like crazy from sending it from my
damn phone. Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Pissed Off!

Well I came home from work today to find my apartment had been burglurized. <--- is that spelled right??? ahh fuck i dont care. Anyways, heres a list of the missing items. 2 laptops, 1 brand new desktop with 19" LCD flat panel, 1 older machine used as a server for my apartment, a video camera, my digital that took all those amazing mexico pictures, a playstation 2 with like 8 games, a nice surround sound system, a brand new iPod that my roommate bought as a birthday present for the girl hes dating, and probly some other shit i havent noticed or am just so mad im forgetting. I cannot remember a time that I was so pissed off. Its probably a good thing I did not stumble upon them in the act. I know they could have been carrying guns and all that mess, but I really feel like maybe I could have stopped it. If not stopped it, someone would have left definently limping or something. fuck im just pissed
