This past month

Well ive had the worst month ever. Lets just say I managed to do the following.....

Broke the front rim on my brand new bike
Battery in my truck died, replaced starter as well
Got in my first accident in my moms car getting parts for my truck
Shattered an exit door at work with a electric lift
Broke my front and rear window in my truck and almost died when the chain snapped and went literally inches away from my head
Was late for work for the first time ever
Replaced the tires on my bike, lost the rear axle spacer. 5 year old nephew and friends were playing in garage when the part became missing.

I know theres more but this is just off the top of my head. Anyone else ever have a shitty month. Im passing on the 4th of july this year. Thats usually my holiday and I spend near a grand on shit but im to scared this year. Dont know what else can go wrong.

I had this kinda hellstorm at the beginning of the year...I'm still dealing with the tail end of some issues, but for the most part it's passed.

Seriously, it got so bad...well, I won't bore you with the details...it was just bad.

Just be like duck...water rolls off the back of a duck. Let the crap roll off and just keep moving on. Don't let yourself get stagnant.

Someone always has it worse, and today we console our brotha G2G...

But really life is great for him cause the two fuctards that pulled this shanigans will get theirs in the end, we will all sit and wait for the Karma to do its job.

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I wouldnt even talk to a female yesterday after I broke my truck windows. To scared they might get pregnant or I get diseased. Things are looking up tho. Finally after 5 weeks I got my bike back on the road. Finally got to listen to my new exhaust after waiting 5 weeks lol. Those PP ct2 tires are such an improvement over stock its not even funny. On a quick rap of the throttle down my street, I could spin the rear no problem. With these, it just grabbed and did a small wheely. Felt a lot more confident in the turns. Im just gonna ride slow and enjoy the sights.
