I feel (not sure if it is true or not) I am modest when it comes to things that I’m talented with. I am not a super hero, otherwise I would not have a surplus of blog material without a blog motive. You know, when you subconsciously map a recipe for an idea of blogging and then go about your lifestyle creating awesome material to write about and then find it difficult to catch up and to find motivation to publish.


I have noticed different moods for my brain that is better at dealing with different activities. I do like to write, but not all of the time. I’ve been doing my own style of writing since high school. It might have been an abundance of horrible poetry, but it wasn’t all garbage. Random writing has been a staple of my lifestyle for some time for whatever life brings. Coinciding with writing is playing Chess. I tend to want to write and play chess more in the winter during less climately inviting conditions are presently outside. When I am more active outside, I don’t like to write or play chess. I may have just madeup the word “climately”.


I watched Searching for Bobby Fischer in 1994-95. I started playing Chess in fifth grade homeroom at age 11, in 1996. I continued to play chess until present day where I play Chess With Friends, a mobile Chess app, everyday. I have lost matches many of times and to me, that is the best way to learn.


My all-time winning percentage on Chess With Friends is 70% and I believe I started in 2009-2010. I am in no way a Chess grandmaster, just a dude that is decent at Chess.


I refrain from considering myself a nerd. I am a geek, a person who likes nerdy things, but can still party like a rock star.

To me, there is not a better game out there that at the same time prepares your mind for the biggest game, life. It’s never too late to take up a new game, lifestyle and/or hobby.

Successful Strategy

“If you woke up and didn’t learn anything today, why the fuck did you wake up?”


Work hard. Play harder.


(not sure why I cannot remove ‘food’ from this category)


Just Words

I feel obligated to try and describe my day yesterday. And I feel pictures will not necessarily suffice.

My buddy (a paid employee of mine acting as my ‘friend’) told me about a gravel ride being a “tough ride” via text and I responded, “Send me a link, Zelda”. So, yesterday has me in goofy high spirits, today!

I had a trifecta Breakfast including Tempeh, Soyrizo & Tofu for lunch and dinner. The sense of accomplishment of creating food as delicious as I did, is very hard to explain. Especially when it consumes your entire morning. I then joined a few other cyclists for Beers and Bikes to an outstanding and highly motivational Bicycle meeting. After making a last stop, the night was topped off with a few battles of Galaga. I played Galaga on Nintendo back in the day. It has always been an amazing game. I do not play video games and have not since the first Play Station. This is exactly how video games need to be. They need to be social games in a social setting, not locked away in a dark closet for days drenched in sweat and urine.

I had a shoe problem with losing one of the screws to my cleat and literally had to take my right foot out of the shoe to be able to release myself from the bicycle. A problem overcome with quick thinking and actions. #RideOn

2015 BS Gravel Ride

Great things follow hard work, quick decisive thinking and teamwork! And with 60 minutes of Galaga at the end of the night, it was as if the planets aligned with a solar eclipse and a meteor shower magically painting the sky all at once with as much power as a massive volcano explosion shaking the Earth with a numbing rumbling vibrations. It’s such a vast universe and we’re such a tiny spec to the ever expanding, exponentially big science that we will never understand as just a tiny flash in the universe process, but when you (me) have such a perfect day, things aligned correctly in the universe allowing such a great day as a truly perfect day is hard to come by.
