I was riding the bus to the ASU campus a couple of days ago, yes I was riding the bus, and I wondered how did I get here. I thought back a couple years and I never thought that life would end up as it did. I am not even talking about the injury. When I moved to Phoenix a couple of years ago I was focused on finishing my project here and moving on. I never expected what would happen after moving to Arizona again. Within months I fell in love with a girl and grew to love what Phoenix has to offer. I went on a spectactular trip to Vietnam. I rode my mountain bike from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon. When I moved to Phoenix I never thought that the Valley of the Sun would be my home, but it is.
When I look back over the last two years I had the sense that the smallest events made the biggest difference in the direction of my life. The type of events like meeting a girl over cake and everclear. This changed the direction of my life yet it took many, many months for my to notice the new direction. The first time I hiked in the Superstition Mountains I was unaware of that impact on my life. I really found a great appreciatoin for those mountains that day. I have come to believe that those changes and new experiences in my life are ones that sometimes make the most impact on how life manages to progress.
Mom came down to Arizona for a visit to help out with somethings here. I am sure with her method of accomplishing tasks it should be an interesting couple of days.
As far as getting a new vehicle if I get a modern one it will very probalbly be the Honda Element. The only problem I see with it is that it sits a little high. To solve this problem I am looking to get hydralics placed on the vehicle. I am also going to get some good looking rims. If I can get some hydralics and dubs that would be the best option of all.
I met with a woman yesterday that works for the disabilites office on the ASU campus. I went in there because even though I am not student I still could get some help. As it turned out it I got quite a bit of help. The woman is the same level of injury as me and her help was greatly appreciated.
Today is Friday so have a great weekend. Tip one back for me.
