Now Playing Tracks




The car enthusiast, who is a member of the U.S. Military, hated the car’s silver color. One evening, he let his wife doodle on a few scratches on the bumper, and when the sun came up and he saw her stunningly intricate and elegant drawings, they knew they had to forge on. While he worked on tuning the insides, she drew on the car.

After roughly 100 hours of work and several clear coats to protect the design, they had an impressively beautiful car that they had tuned up as a team! (x)

i swear i saw this like YEARS ago, why did it only resurface now ? 

woahhhhhh hope he never sells that car

I bought a house! …sorta.

So here I am in a store called 3vets. The whole store is heaven for anyone who has even the smallest outdoorsy tendencies. I am standing in the back, just past the knife rack, where they keep the tents. One of the tents really stood out for me. It was a 3 man tent which is a little larger than I had intended, but it was still only 9lbs. It’s a 4 seasons tent, so its a little more heavy duty and uses a 3 pole system. It should be the perfect size for me and one other. If a friend ever decides to go along with me we will have room for our gear inside.
Man can these people name tents though. The cyclone 3, it just screams of badassary. I’m surprised it doesn’t come with sentry turrets and armoured sides. I guess its sort of like how batteries aren’t included. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited to set it up. 

The tent is one of the final big items I need before I can really call my travelling kit complete.
My bucket list trial trip is soon to be underway :D

How I keep the axe head on the grindstone

I find that I have one flawed way of thinking that I just keep coming back to.

Somewhere in my head I hold these grand imaginings of a lifestyle where I am the master of multiple fields, I write the most beautiful and meaningful prose known to humankind, I live a life of luxury, I travel the world as I please, and no one interrupts my relaxing and pursuit of whatever hobbies I desire. It’s around this point that the universe gives me one hard backhand and I find myself staring into the face of reality again; all of these dreams feel so out of reach that I can’t even imagine a path that could take me to them. I am positive I am not the only one who does this. Fess up folks because together we might beat the crap out of that feeling and find those damn dreams.

Enough on the problem though; let’s talk solutions. I have exactly 1 puny solution that seems to partially solve this feeling. Pay close attention people; if you blink you might miss it.

I imagine all those grand delusions and make them even bigger and grander than before. “What?” you say, “Is he mad. He’s just adding more gasoline to the bonfire.” Well fear not my friends, there is more to it. I then completely forget every one of those desires —now you can be assured that I am stark-naked-in-the-middle-of-times-square insane— and instead focus on the smallest possible thing I could do to make my life a little more like those dreams. And then I do that small thing and revel in its glory. It makes me feel great so I find another small thing and do that as well. Eventually I have done enough of these small things that before I know it I meander straight into my dreams.

It is at this point that I decide I didn’t really want what I dreamed and throw it all away for something else instead.

Sigh. Such is life.

I encourage you to try this. Now it’s your turn. Do you lot have any special way of making life bend to your will?

Time to write a new Bucket list

Hello Tumblr. I hope your week has been going well. I on the other hand have had one of those weeks. The one where you just wonder what you are really doing with your life and if it is really what you want. So I have been writing and thinking a lot. I swear its started to drive me insane.

So I settled on writing myself a new bucket list and accomplishing everything that ends up on the list as soon as humanly possible.

#1: Leave for 2-3 weeks and just walk. I have a really nice backpacking bag that I bought 6 months ago. I still haven’t used it so now is the time to break it in. The idea is to walk each day and camp out somewhere during the nights. I just head in roughly the same direction for most of the trip and if the last few days I’ll try and catch the greyhound bus back. The estimated time of departure will be last November on the day that my term ends.

#2: Don’t utter a single word for 2 weeks (or more). This item will be done with the first. I do not plan on having anyone come with me so it should be easier to complete. I will however write every night and take footage of the walk. I just won’t speak during any of it.
