Spending Time with Squishy

So my daughter is here for vacation and I couldn't be happier. I haven't had the time to upload and sort through all of the photos for this visit yet, so here's some of the ones I already had. She's a smart girl. And thankfully she's not as messy as last year. She can sleep by herself and is 100% potty trained. I love being a young dad for the simple fact that whenever I make a choice in life, I already have guidance.

So we have a few plans in mind. Today we're going to the library in Russellville to get her something to do at 7:00 in the morning instead of mash Play-Doh in the carpet. I have plenty of Zobomafoo episodes if all else fails. She enjoyed watching them with her daddy on the big screen :)

Tomorrow I have off from work, so I plan on taking a hike at Petit Jean State Park. They have loads of trails, including one that goes down to a waterfall, which we went to last year. There's also a petting zoo at the top of the mountain which Squish has been to every visit at least once.

More plans will come as the days go by. All I care about is enjoying the time I get with her :D

New Tattoo

Title pretty much says it all. Here's a picture:

Not much else going on besides I GET TO SEE MY DAUGHTER TOMORROW! :D
She's staying here for a few weeks and I can't wait until she gets to wake me up at 7 in the morning just to watch cartoons!

So I started dieting

It's been too long since I've updated my blog, and I'd like to start doing so again. The new layout finally fixed the problems I've been having (blogs I followed were still showing up after I unfollowed them).

School - School is going pretty well. It's summer break now, and I'm unsure if I still want to attend school. I started to study computer networking (CCNA) in order to get my certification and make some real money with a big kid job. I get all A's and B's in school, but a degree in International Studies will only get me humanitarian work anyway, which doesn't really pull in the cash. With a daughter, this is sort of impossible at the moment. It requires focus, and Squishy is my main focus, so I'm having trouble balancing.

Romance - After getting into so many fights and having my heart stomped on too many times, I've finally decided to open the flood gates again and break out of my shell, and ended up falling in love with the girl that's been with me through everything. Her name is Frankie, and I love her. She's been my spine during my worst moments. We text every day and call each other on work breaks. I have a lot of planning to do for my future, and I can't wait to start them all with her.

Diet - I lost 40lbs within three months, and I'm currently eating healthy and doing small morning exercises to introduce my body to a new routine. I love knowing that I'm losing weight and I never want to go back. Tuna fish straight out of the can tastes great to me. I don't know why I ever stopped eating it. I bake chicken, cut up lettuce and tomatoes and make great tasting sandwiches too. More on that later on; you guys don't like food, right?

Work - I've been in the food industry for a long time now. Pizza Hut is definitely better than Dominos as far as work goes. The environment is great, the people are great, and I don't hate my job like a lot of my friends and family do. I work with a bunch of really nice guys, and we're all friends there. We go to concerts and smoke cigarettes together. One of the guys (name's Chris) has tattoo equipment, and he told me he'd hook me up with a new one for $20. I can't wait for that. I'm flat broke, but with all the hours I've been getting here and there, I can afford at least one :D
