the truth of the lie

RIP AJ Boik 9/20/93 - 7/20/12
I never know what to put here. It usually ends up being some half-true stuff about myself that's been written in less than 30 seconds, but here goes nothing.
I'm a runner and a swimmer, biker and a laxer. I'm 19 and live in Colorado New Mexico (but my heart remains in my home state). I'm a senior in high school freshman at New Mexico Tech for petroleum and mechanical engineering, in IB former IB kid (yes, slightly masochistic), and really, I'm a smart kid, I'm just a perpetual slacker. I have one true best friend(?), and despite my numerous relationships, I am doomed to always (eventually) being single. I lead a fairly happy life, although most of the time that's just a façade to cover the uncertainty that clouds my life. Uncertainty that nearly nobody knows about, all because I have become emotionally removed from all that happens around me. The only place that I speak freely is in my head, just because of some disconnect somewhere between my brain and mouth/pen/keys. I have never truly been able to communicate what I really want, but I guess this will be as close as I can get.

Shit I Like

I biked 430 miles in September, and I’m pretty proud of that. Weather permitting, I’m hoping to go over 500 in October.

And speaking of biking home being an adventure, I got to walk the last half mile because there was so much hail on the streets that it was nearly impossible and incredibly impractical to continue biking. I couldn’t even wheel my bike next to me, because it kept sliding out away from me, and I ended up hoisting it into my shoulder and trudging on. So next, I took a #selfie.

Yesterday there were literally ice floes of hail all over the bike paths. This particular one was about 30 yards deep and a foot thick. Needless to say, biking home was quite an adventure.

Top: Garden, September 6
Bottom: Lack of garden, September 30, 24 hrs post-hailstorm.
I wasn’t really exaggerating when I said we don’t have a garden anymore.

I mean, for all intents and purposes it pretty much snowed today. A very violent, painful snow. #Coloradoweather

I think I pulled my butt today. I didn’t even think that was possible, but holy crap my butt and thighs have never felt this sore in my entire life.

If this doesn’t go away before tomorrow morning, I might not be able to bike to work.





A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement

(Note: This isn’t me)

See? This is a tailor-made proposal. Not some “big screen of basketball game nonsense. This person took into account his girlfriend’s pastimes and favourite things in the world, knew how close to the family she was and engineered the perfect engagement proposal, without a doubt managing to make sure this would please her (surely her mother and sisters would know).

This is how you do big gestures.

This is so awesome I can’t even.  

Also, the look on her face as she came into the house.  Hehehehehehe!
