Family On Christmas!!!

Glad that i had a chance to spend time with my family! It's always great to see them and catch up on things. Just spending time with people who you don't see often makes you appreciate a lot more things in life. I am thankful to have such a family to spend time with!

Family bonding...

Nothing beats just hanging out with the family. Relaxing and enjoying their company. Sharing stories and having endless laughs. Keep these memories close and never let them slip away no matter what! Merry Christmas!

Awkward Gift exchange...

I always thought it is just slightly awkward when Christmas comes around. When you receive a present its always a awkward "Omg thank you" and a hug and then look at it for awhile. Maybe it's just be but i love all the gifts i am given but i always thought it was a little weird. There goes my random thought lol.

Snatching 95kg over 200lbs!!!

Here is one of the action shots of one of the comps i was in. I love it! It's all of my months of training broken down into one simple picture. This is why i love this sport. Raw power, explosiveness, and determination all in one picture. :D

Sacrifices for your sport...

Anyone who has been in a sport knows what it feels like to Sacrifice things for your sport. It sucks... the only thing that makes it worth it is knowing you have improved and all of your hard work paying off. It's hard to stay on track especially if there are more negative. For those who are still going through that now. Keep your head up and stick to your training. It WILL pay off in the long run.

Back to basics...

Feeling great about going back to strictly technique! I am on a new journey for perfection. Hopefully in a couple of months i will be more technically sound then i have ever been. This does not mean i let up and or be content on where i am at. Just means i work harder then i ever have before. Staying motivated and humble lets GO! :D

For so far it feels like i thrive under pressure. That if there is someone in the audience that i never seen before i try my hardest to show them what i am capable of. For example my grandpa who had cancer who is the audience when  i was lifting in my competition. I broke my personal record total by 13kg. Which is HUGE. I know i will perform to the best of my ability on Saturday. I just have to focus and rely on my training.

I wrote this Before i knew my grandpa passed away.

I am standing alone in the dark, 
searching and thinking how to start,
should I cry with all the rest,
or should I keep it in and build the stress?
Stress that will haunt me till the end of time?
because i couldnt help him or give him time.
because he is slowly passing away,
and i truly wish i can give him a day,
i love him like any kid should,
I should be by his side i truly should,  
But i can’t and i dont know why, 
But when i see him i will cry,
cry because i am mad,
because one day that will be my dad, 
but that is dar away from now, 
but i have to know and find out how, 
how to deal with the suffering and pain,
and guide my family through the rain, 
through the rain and into the light, 
because our futures are still very bright, 
it is hard but we will get threw it, 
death comes we already knew it, 
we knew it was gonna come but not so fast,
so let’s be there for him till the last, 
R.I.P Grandpa We miss you.

The perfect Clean! Olympic Weightlifting

Wow so quick update with my training. I was performing the Clean singles at 85kg roughly 170lbs. I was trying to perfect the "bouncing out" effect when you perform the Clean. This saves you a tremendous amount of effort when your getting out of the Clean part of your Clean and jerk. Anyways it was my last rep until i had to squat. So the following is what i felt during the clean. To summarize whats below there i had a near perfect clean with little to no effort!

I finished my leg drive until my shoulders were slightly  over the bar but i was vertical. The bar path was close and i was literally pulled under the bar. By the time i realized i was half way up on my clean and was not using my legs at all! I was completely surprised! I am extremely grateful for the coaches i have that train me and put me in the best possible position to make me successful!

Countdown to my competition!

Well i am halfway through the week and i am so pumped up for my competition this Saturday! The interesting part of it is that my cousin might show up and see me lift. Its always good to have some additional pressure. Whats the point of lifting if there isn't something to lose right? Either way it will be another experience that i will always remember good or bad it will shape how my training will progress and be this next upcoming cycle.

Vacation at last!

Well the first few days of my vacation was almost exactly as i like it. Doing NOTHING just lounging around in sweats and a long sleeve shirt and doing nothing. It was cold so it was perfect weather to stay inside. I am looking forward to seeing my family this upcoming holidays. Nothing is better then just to kick back and enjoy each others company and just be thankful everyone is together. Hope your all having a good one to!

Finals week! Finished!

Although this semester was a little stressful I have finally taken more information than I thought I would! Although I wish I could retain as much information and learn as fast as a computer butI cannot yet. Although I wish I could I just have to focus and study more. Yea... Me STUDY? I have not studied in a very long time. Although I have passed a majority of my classes I have yet to force my self to study... That should and will change. Sadly I will have to make some small changes but I will change for the better. Hopefully this semester will reflect my changes for the better.

Gotta push through...

Just found out that i got a D on my history class.. i really hate when it goes down to the wire. It gets really discouraging when you put in all of that work and then all of a sudden its like it never counts. Not blaming the teacher, not blaming anyone else. Just myself but i guess these are lessons learned that you have to push through in order to find yourself i suppose.

On the right path...

I finally feel i am on the right path.. i mean it took awhile to figure out what i wanted to know but now i know that i am on my way there. It is something that i actually like and hopefully will be very successful at. The job market is always going up so i hope it will work out for me.
What i am hoping to get in is something in the IT field. Or eventually getting to work with databases, web development or something along the lines of that. Lets hope for a better future.

Christmas Spirit?

I don't really believe in the Christmas Spirit what i do believe in is being in the Christmas mood. Where your happy for no reason. Where you just smile all day and don't know why. Where you all of a sudden are in  a better mood when your stuck in traffic... ok maybe that is just me but you know what i mean.

I take this month to be thankful and just spend time with my family and relax. Cause if your a college student and have a part time or full time job we all LOVE to relax. So take this time and not be productive at all! You deserve it! :D

How will you be remembered?

I always wondered how will i be remembered? Will it be good or will it be bad? I always try to be a good person regardless the situation. I mean i try and be a upstanding guy. I hope that people look back and think the same thing. This might sound like i am self conscious which i am not. But i just want to leave a positive mark . Or a mark at all for that matter.. just had me thinking for a quick minute.

Playing for Money Vs playing for pride?

Well as i am here waiting for a game to end and warming up. I heard that we are playing for money. I mean i was playing 100% yesterday when i didn't know we were playing for a cash prize. But now that i know we are playing for money that only sweetens the deal!
I play for pride and for my team and my drive to be the best. I will make sure that i wont let anyone down.


My team took second after a long day in playoffs. It was worth the medal and the Outstanding player of my division :). It was a great experience and i am glad i took part in this great experience! :D

Ray William Johnson Banned From Youtube?

Quick not on what happened today in the morning around 10am my time. I saw that Ray was banned. Now that is a first because i never have seen a BIG You Tube Partner banned before. I mean if you look at the business side of things it would mean a HUGE blow for advertisement deals and so on. Not to mention all that time spent in making and producing those videos. Although he did get his account back with a couple of errors makes you wonder what really happened to have his account shut down. A glitch? A hacker? Or just the new You Tube layout not handling all of the traffic? What do you think? 

Volleyball Videos soon! Hopefully..

Well i am going to play in a volleyball tournament and i hope my wonderful girl friend records some footage. I would love to keep that game play! I played middle through high school and then went and played outside in Club and college for a year. Going to dust off the old volleyball shows and see what i got in them! Leegoo! :D

Strive to be the greatest...

If you had a chance to be great and i do mean GREAT. Would you do it? If it meant taking chances, going through pain, dedicating your self to something that requires repetitive repetition? To strive for perfection? You might say yes to all of these things but do you really have the mental endurance to take on such a task?

Any athlete knows what mental endurance in a sport takes and how hard it is to reach a breaking point during a match, game, race, etc. When your faced with a challenge that you are not 100% positive you will win. Will you still try? Be physically strong is one thing but mentally strong is a different story. Strive to be the greatest make that only other opponent YOU. YOUR the only competition and enemy you will battle with throughout your life. Conquer it now before its to late.
