July 4th!!! - The Land of Nod
July 4th!!!
Okay...so someone needs to remind me why I asked for a 6 am training session tomorrow. That means I need to get up at 4:30am to be ready and at the gym by 6. Shit, kudos to any of you who do it regularly.

Had my session today and worked on legs. Sore chest...check. Sore back...check. Sore legs and ass...check. Now it's arms and shoulders tomorrow. I don't know what he'll do to me on Friday. Oh well. Just as long as I make up my sessions and the gym doesn't fuck up as much as it has been.

Didn't do the fireworks thing since my dad dragged us to them when we were younger. I never really liked the sounds of them and esp got to hate them when one of them blew my brother's left hand off. I go for the whole feel of the holiday...the big bangs. I'm fine without.

I saw Superman Returns. I liked it. It also made me think about how wrapped up we get with our own lives that we sometimes forget that there might be someone else suffering more, sacrificing more, lonely. Ah well. I don't want to get too sappy and philosophical tonight. Let's just say that sometimes, we just need to learn how to take a step away from ourselves and look at the bigger picture.

Haven't had time to take pictures. Might be able to tomorrow. I've slowed down a bit but I find myself looking at my camera bag as I do what I need to do around the house. I want to play more with the Macro lens and also try and push myself with my 'sight'. It's funny though, because everytime I walk around, I see the world as I would if it's a constant picture. It's a rather interesting perspective.

So I've put my request in for my month off at work. Now if I could get the airline tickets to match up with the dates...that would be another headache gone. It's been almost 7 or 8 years since I've seen my family there. My grandfather looks so...old. I just never saw him as such until I looked at a picture.
The jacket he was in just seem to swallow him up. When did he start to look so frail?

Anyway, goodnight. Be safe :)
