I was walking home from the gym and this song came on. I trudged along as the rain kinda just sprinkled on me and the Okinawa sun was blocked by the deep gray clouds above me. I've had days like this before when I was in Washington down in Federal Way. It's not an usual sight at all but it hit me how...

@ro__ I actually haven't skyped them in a while but maybe I should. I have always called but I am sure they would love to see my face for once.

What do you guys think? The music I listen to is so random.

I'm not fast, I am not stronger than most but I will outlast. I can run far....Very far. My long run today is going to be 8 miles long. Far into the night I am going to go and never come back. Why? I mean I can be stereotypical and say I like to be alone. Or, the burn is great. That isn...

I'm sure most of you have heard of a marathon. 26.2 miles of running that seems like it will never end. An exhausting and grueling race that will never end. I want to do more than this. I want to try for something harder.

There is this thing called an Iron man race. 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25...

I don't have to try to let people like me. I don't have to force it or feel upset. THey can downright hate me and who should care. Me? That is such a big relief off my back to know that it's okay for people not to like me or to just dislike me. What is wrong at all with just letting...

...It's my birthday. I hate my birthday with a passion. It used to mean so much when I was younger and as the years go on I started to hate it even more. I suppose I started to dislike it when I realized that it was never going to be the same as when I was younger. I always get these big expectation that...

If she wants to get you a gift let her, don't let you not wanting a gift Jack with your relationship. I have a couple of people that get me something small. Even if it's cheesy or stupid I do my best to let them know I'm thankful for it. I have had huge birthday blowouts that went badly and gave up trying as well but if someone wants to get something just try to play it that you like small things not big dollar items. It seems to help.

I think this will help me out. I am going to see if I can do this. A cool internet journal.

I just can't do clubs. I can't do loud bars or clubs and see everyone happy. I don't understand and o just can't.... I don't see how people can be so happy sometimes.

So sad for you :/ Everyone should smile everyday!

It seems ever since I acquired my goal weight I have let myself go a bit. It's nothing terrible like it was before but it starting to make me feel a bit large. I am currently 205 pounds and have gained about 20 pounds since I have been in the Marine Corps. That is in all honesty my fault. Now that I am here...

@iggy It sucks right? I have lost a lot of weight and I am never going to that point again. Still, I beat myself up for the smallest amount now. It's good to keep yourself in such a strict manner but damn if it isn't a heart breaker half the time.

I think its fairly common to reach a goal and then relax and ask yourself "OK. What now?". Find something new to motivate yourself. And chill out buddy, this struggle/challenge is only going to last the rest of your life! I don't know how much THAT will help but it just might be the truth.
