When you go through everyday life thinking that you’re going to be in one spot for a long time. Then the next moment, out of nowhere your whole world is flipped upside down. what do you do when this happens.
For me a turning point came today. As I was making pancakes for breakfast, I got a phone call from work. Usually my work never called me on my days off so I thought this was rather strange. Next thing I knew I was unemployed. The complete shock of realizing but I have no source of income now. for what reason might you ask? You’re not the only one asking that question. I’m asking the same one myself. What did I do wrong here? Why do they not want me to stay? They themselves would not answer that question.
In Oregon there’s a law that makes some employers at will employers. Icebreaker was one of those companies. The woman that fired me on the other hand though I had never met my entire life. How can she be the one to judge me based on my performance. How could she be the one to tell me that my work wasnt good enough??
NetBank brings me back to recent post of brings me back to recent post of mine. Where I talked about how you should do things for yourself. Look after yourself and only yourself. those friends that you make at work might be the ones to throw you under the bus in the end. As I consider them friends and even close family I soon realized that they are out to get me just as much as my enemies.
For an outdoor company icebreaker merino wool was one that I thought would have more respect and more class to not fire someone over the telephone. And I figured they would have a lot more class to tell me what I actually did wrong. In the end I’m happy to be free once again.
As my 90 days of self transformation is in full swing I have been noticing a change in my body. Added muscle mass and more definition. Can’t wait to see what the finished product results in.
After a few rounds of pool, I was walking towards home when I ran across an exotic fish store. The fish on the window were pretty cool so I decided to step inside. I was with good times, a buddy of mine that I had met in 2012 on trail. We felt really awkward being in the store because the people made us feel very weird. We exited as fast as we walked in. I get outside and ask Gt if he saw the monkey. He looked at me puzzled and said what are you talking about? I saw a monkey sitting on the counter next to the crazy lady on the phone. He had never seen the monkey. I thought it was pretty funny that he missed the big poofy grey monkey.
Enjoy the laughs.
Lately I have come to the realization that if I want something done or to happen I must do it myself. The other day I was counting on a friend to help me get home. Unfortunately things didn’t end up working out at all. In that situation I should have just done things to make sure that I wouldn’t be stranded. This 90 days of self transformation has really started to kick in and I am only on day 25. From now on I do things for myself to make sure I have and do the things that I need to live a happy and healthy life. I have been considering growing my own vegetables indoor. Although I have never grown anything indoors I do have a nice space in my place for lights and a few tomato plants, I would also like to grow onions, lettuce, pepper, and anything else I can figure out that would be good in my indoor garden. All of this reminds me of a guy that lived at the lotus Krishna temple in Utah. He had 135 plants in his room it was ridiculously cool. What would it take to have a natural feeling outdoor environment indoors??
How do you adventure? What do you take? How do you get there? What do you do once your there? Is there beer and bud involved? Significant other or a group of friends? Tent or tarp? Bike or hike?
These questions asked and answered weekly. I can give them the Merino gear they need and more times then not usually point them in the right direction towards gear that we don’t sell. I’m a hardcore gear junky. From tents to jackets and base layers. You name it I have it or at least have it on my list. Other than that I tell people Nike hit it on the head.
“Just do it.”
The more one travels, the more one adventures, and the more experience one gains through these travels and adventures will lead one to being able to answer these questions on ones own.
Everyone has their own style you find yours through experience mine is completely my own. There are little Knicks and knacks that I do that others don’t. For example my pack has to my light, small, and green.
Lately life has been pretty rusty and frankly pretty boring. The rotating wheel of life seems to landing on work more than play. Just as the squirrel saves his nuts I also look toward spring. Burying my pennies in a Carlo Rossi jug and watching my expenses in hopes of wonderful travel experiences when the time is right. Still I ponder those days and what I shall do. Until then its a rusty crusty city life for six months.
A pivotal time in the morning and a pivotal time in the evening. Greeted by the generosity of 4:20 And while the eve of 12:00 splendidly and methodically let’s his mind wander into oblivion. Be it early and the choice to drink another cup of coffee but weary of the risk of heart complications and shaking hands. Not to mention a full store of outdoor clothing, and tales to tell, without anyone to buy them or to hear them. The production results at mob speed. Until its greeted by 4:20 and then its time to head home. Whilst waiting around for ten30 once again.
