Logix Federal Credit Union

on Sunday, 05 May 2013. Posted in personal, randomness

Just the other day, I opened a new account at a credit union here in Valencia at the Logix Federal Credit Union near my gym and I have to really give them huge kudos. My girlfriend had been sent a flyer for an offer if she referred someone to open an account and I had thought it would be good to have an account here close to home. Plus, she had such good things to say about the people at that branch in the past.

"Gimp Day" - 13 Years Later

on Sunday, 09 December 2007. Posted in personal, randomness

As of December 9th, 2007 I have officially been in a wheelchair for 13 years and, "boy, what a long, strange trip it has been." Some people question why I celebrate this day. Some people say they feel sorry for me or that it is sad that I am in a wheelchair for what looks like the rest of my life. I see it as a great day in my personal history. For more than just the simple fact that I survived.. I excelled.

Negative Comments in Social Media

Not to ride on the death of another thrill seeker to bring it up, but after reading the comments on the crash video for Caleb Moore, I am forced to go on another rant. As a thrill-seeking, adrenaline junky, life LIVER as well, I can relate to the drive that guys like this have to push the limits. We all push the limits within ourselves to be better and in that moment we feel the buzz from a chemical reaction inside our own bodies.

"Gimp Day" - 16 Years Later

on Thursday, 09 December 2010. Posted in personal, randomness

Sixteen years ago today, my life changed forever in an instant. Some feel sorry for me, with comments of “Oh, wow. That sucks!”, after I explain why I am in a wheelchair. Some think this was such a terrible thing to happen to me. Those people have no idea. I raise my glass on this day and celebrate it every single year. My life is better and more fulfilled than I could ever even dream of. I have been more places around the world, done more things, and have better friends around me than I could ever ask for.
