swim forrest!

go fish...

that's what they all say.....

print/pattern trend

If I bought the last two shirts, it'd probably be something I wore once and then never again. I try not to buy into trends. HOWever I really like that black and white shirt, and it'd look so great with my black jeans and chunky white leather doc martens...but for $180 I'll pass!!  the tshirt I could really wear over and over trend or no....but it's $110, please! or couldn't I just pretend like the moving job I did this morning never happened and take the $100 I made from that and throw it towards the tshirt?... ha ha. nah....
shirts above are from Soulland, Topman, Etudes, and the last 3 pics jackthreads.

jeans weekend....

\if you have any interest in OSU's name being dragged through the mud, you might want to read this article about a former player, or this one with the actual guy interviewed from OSU about how biased Sports Illustrated did the reporting.... :P. ESPN reported a bit here...

nuther wednesday.. I love ylvis

hi how's your week going? fine here, just nervously waiting for the essays I'm getting tomorrow from 3 classes. I'll be grading them all week and hopefully I can get them done 15 a day and back to students. ha
I've done all I can to motivate them to write a good paper, and honestly the first ones are always the most interesting to read since it's about a shared experience.
busy week as usual and I'm not getting home at 3:30 in the afternoon like I used to but it's SO worth it. I've been shopping ties online again, found a few on Jackthreads that were cheap enough buy 2 get 1 free and so I ended up with 3 ties only $41 spent! also I like they are the narrow tie sort of trending now.
I am waiting until this Friday's paycheck or 2 weeks more before I buy tickets for "Bullets Over Broadway". Or maybe I should just say ticket....? either way I am going to secure tickets and get a good seat for in May when we get out of classes!! I will really be super excited this May when I am off for a few weeks before summer classes. In the past I worked high school straight up til JUNE. UGH... ha anyway Zach Braf will be starring in the on stage production of Woody Allen's film by the same. I'm looking forward to it.
I got some Christmas cards in the mail today that are pretty cool. I found some older vintage ones on Ebay that have groovy colors from the 70's.  Otherwise not shopping and saving money, I swear.
While my friend was in town last weekend I brought up the topic of Burning Man, and about putting it on a bucket list of something to see/experience at least once!  He was sort of interested. I don't know if he's outdoorsy as me, but anyway we talked about me driving my pickup out there, or bringing tents or a trailor. and then a part of thought about just flying out. I dont' know but I'm going to brainstorm about it for the next couple years and maybe 2015 I could make it.  I like the art community idea of it all. Although I can't think of a more hedonistic atmosphere for a Christian man to take part in, but can't one just observe? It cant' be all sex and drugs and nudity after all... I dunno. anyway, I asked my best buddy here in OKC S about it, and he said, why don't I go and then meet him in Vegas? ha ha.
speaking of buddy S. turns out his seizures weren't anything physical that they could find with the MRI or KEG and all that... Sooooo now he's going to have to consider coming out to his folks and see if that's what's giving him anxiety attacks. keeping both worlds separate.  He was sort of happily living a single closet life and seeing guys etc.. and never expected to find a solid bf, and now he absolutely has one. they just really love each other and are making it work although long distance.  And S is such a small town super honest humble guy! the best! and it's been hard for him number one getting attention for the whole thing and then having to be dishonest about the whole relationship that he really cares a lot about out. so he's working through what to do next.  thing is he needs to drive to work and back without having episodes that could harm him while driving.. he's on anti anxiety medication now that helps him sleep and I guess it's something besides just the xanax. my good buddy, really hope he gets it all worked out.
I told him that either one of our parents surely couldnt' be all that clueless since we're single for so long. but still that doesn't make it any easier putting it out there. whew!
something on mind all week was this article about a sports analyst Craig James getting fired. It seems to be a basically ethical decision on the part of human resources based on his previous public remarks.  I was surprised that something he said before working there was a reason to fire him. What was more offensive that homosexuals will answer to God for their actions or that he said his opponent shouldn't have been at the pride parade??  I mean all mankind will answer to God for their actions eventually regardless who you're having sex with.... It's too bad that the only point of view here was one of condemnation and not what you'd expect most Christians would want to be out in public as their point of view. that of God's love and grace. Why is it never that first?.. oh yeah, politics!  ...alas.

take your pic...
