I have not run over the period of last two weeks; but I did get a full time job. However, I will have to get back to running to ... keep the job!

I have known better, but again made the same mistake.
The Poles and even other members of the former Polish--Lithuanian Commonwealth do best, very often, do things in reverse -- not a joke, how crazy it may sound.

What mistake did I commit again; I decided to stop doing my own thing, again, and listen to another, again, and again, I got burned -- I lost my job.

From now on, I will repeat every time at crica 6 a.m. facing the mirror while shaving: "You will listen only to yourself and to no one else. What is good for them is in 99.9% of cases bad for you."

This does not mean that I will refuse to learn; there is a difference between learning and listening.
Sad Wink

Since, I did know better than to listen to anyone, but myself, my lost job is my own fault and I have only myself to blame!

I will run to break a Guiness World Record!
1st, I have to get in shape.
Next, i have to get back into the military shape.
Last, i have to push my limits!

I will have to be at phase 1 as of 7/7/2010
And break it as of 3/21/2011.


Latest runs:
-2 days) 4 laps (around 4.8 miles) in under 48 minutes (a very slow pace) in 87F (I was relatively OK);
-1 day) 2 laps in an unknown time (the climate started to get to me);
-today) after carrying heavy things in the hot weather and a good meal with three cops of coffee, I feel like a heart attack -- the climate and the before--mentioned.

I cannot believe that I had never fell on my face while in the Basic/AIT at Fort Bening -- that was a amazing!
However, I was one of the only 5 to 9 persons who did suffer from the prolonged heat exposure that lead to a high--fever flue--like sickness and a between 1 and 3 -- day long stays in the Infarmary.
Mr. Davis admitted to ... that I had been right, when I had told him that being black was going to make only a little difference and that the fact that he had been born and raised in Detroit was to be paramount, when he was checking into the Infarmary!

No motivation to liove well either; not just to run.
If I were left alone, except for being disabled or dead or homeless, I could have not been worse.
I got so much help that now:
Family?
I have none.
I have kith, but no family.
Sanity?
I am paranoid.
Money?
I am in debt.
Future?
I hardly can find employment; was not an issue untill 2003.
Education?
I wanted to squeeze out a Ph.D.; now, I do not ever care to try to get a master's degree with my G.I. Bill. It was a waste of time: being in the military.

Can you help me to undo the help?

PostPosted: Thu Jul 29, 2010 9:10 am    Post subject: Swimming! Reply with quote

The free swimming is about to end; and I only learned the proper forward crawl and only improved a little on my "frog."
I learned how to dive after objects without goggles.
It is a slow progress due to:
-1) little water time every year;
-2) I am not a kid or juvenile.
But, I am happy that they have kept the free pool this year in New Jersey.

I do run, sometimes, but I have used the free summer pool at Elizabeth High School well.
I used to make between 25 and 40 pool witdth or 3 to 4 pool lengths a couple summers ago using the breast stroke style, but yesterday, I did 22 pool widths using the forward crawl, and in total 43 pool widths, and the pool was busy; I had to struggle through crowds and swim around people.
Just like lanes 1 and 2 are on the usual American track.

The marine corps came over yesterday to try and recruit me. People will always say how great their program or product or service is that it sounds too good to be true.

But WHY settle for earning a pay raise? WHY settle for waiting for the economy to get better? WHY settle for earning a benefit? WHY settle for for anything?

I read this one book called Rich Dad Poor Dad. It's about a current millionaire who was raised by two dads (separately of course) and he describes in full detail what each one told him. His educated (poor dad) with a PhD, got into debts, etc. His rich uneducated dad (with only 8 grades of education), was smoking millions.

I'm sure your parents told you this when you were young: study hard, and you will be successful. Mine told me the same...but the truth is that it only worked in the early 1900s.

Correct:
education is only one of many factors.

Max falls behind my wife and knocks his two teeth out -- he needs a helmet.
Ruben and I have fed this 2 year old too much candy; other 4 teeth had to go; six fillings -- the fall might have been a blessing clothed into a tragedy!
This morning, God loves babies, I drove to get him painkiller and bananas from the store; on my way back driving up a slope my car got flooded. I saw a car almost out of the water just in front of me. I saw two men inside of a straight truck passing me and laughing at me -- I got mad. Twisted Evil

I kept on starting the car; with two jumps, I was out of the water. By 7:30 am, the car was OK! Laughing
He made it to the dentist on time! Wink
