Politics and Life

Voting MattersThe other day I was with some friends and they were joking around about politics and one of them asked, Who cares about politics? I responded nonchalantly, people who care about life? Another friend said in return, “that’s the stupidest thing you have ever said,” while the one who asked the original question stated, “That’s not true because I care about life, but not politics.”

Unfortunately, I was cut off before I could explain my opinion further. But, I realize, maybe people really do think that politics = life = stupid, so I wanted to explain myself a little further for the world to see. Hopefully to understand how it connects to them too. One can hope, right?

Okay, so this seems pretty logical to me, but politics puts in play who makes the laws, and those that make the laws are supposed to represent the people. We all know that isn’t always the case, which is all the more reason to be involved!!!! Often, if one takes a little harder look, which I wish more people would do, you can find how money influences policy more than the rights of people in far too many cases.

Now, with that in mind, let’s take a real look at how pretty much everything you use, do, or live by is directly impacted by our political leaders.

Do you want to know if your food has GMO’s in it? Well, too bad, our political leaders say that isn’t acceptable and have decided for you that you don’t need to know. (Some places have put in local laws to say otherwise, thankfully, though.)

Do you want lead in your paint? Continue reading

Tour De Dallas

The other day I was out and about doing some stuff for work and I missed my exit to turn off. I decided to just roll with it and ended up driving down areas of Dallas I had never been to before. It was actually pretty cool. It was early enough that I was able to just barely get some of the sunrise as I drove over highways and rush hour traffic began to stand still.

I did manage to snap a pic, too! Check it out :)

New Home! | Losing It With Kevin

I am soooo happy to say that I have finally moved into my new home. It’s a marvelous new structure not far from where I used to live, recently built with all new … well, everything. I am the first person to live in the building and it has a more modern design and feel to it than my previous place. This is definitely a great way to get things rolling as my birthday creeps closer and closer. I am so happy right now and look forward to what the next few months bring. Along with the nice, new place, they also offer a 24-hour, modernized, fitness center, which includes free weights, many different cardio machines, and they also offer spinning classes as well as personal trainers for all of the residents. There are 3 pools as well. Oh, and let’s not forget about the “Yoga lawn,” for community yoga, and the beer garden and private patios with outdoor tv’s you can reserve.

It’s definitely a step up from where I lived before, and I plan to make full use of everything they have to offer! HUZZAH!

What the Heart wants | Losing It With Kevin

I was at a photo shoot with some friends and a big cold front was moving in during sunset. It made for an absolutely gorgeous display of light over the horizon and the silhouette of the old grain mills only enhanced the imagery.

I see things like this and it gives me hope. A small reminder that no matter where I am at, there is still hope. I miss SW beyond belief and sometimes it is a struggle from day-to-day when I haven’t heard from her in so long. We were ok last time I checked, but with her busy life and … Separate life at that, she hasn’t been around much.

Fortunately I am busy enough where the days do go by fast, but my heart still yearns for her, and I hold onto hope to have the chance to make things how they should be again now that I am not so childish.

Only time will tell, I suppose. Man alive, though, I miss her a ton.

Some people think I am crazy, and I understand why, but I guess the heart wants what the heart wants and I am as determined as ever, for whatever reason, to reach out and make it a reality. Smiles!

Rebuilding The Dream | Losing It With Kevin

While I feel like I am somewhat repeating myself whenever I am able to get to a blog post, I feel the need to reiterate how awesome things in life are currently going! After all the hogwash from earlier in the year, everything is being lifted up, all of the mishaps are being reformed, and life is full of sunshine! I had to really sit and figure out how to keep things moving forward and I am happy to say that I am so busy now that I am almost never available.

Oddly, that actually feels good. I realized that I had a lot of down time in between my photo shoots and my sales, despite the editing (Which takes a lot less time now since I got a new computer that is bad ass…), so I decided to put in some extra effort and make some more money. I am really enjoying it right now. It’s only for a few months, but I am feeling really good and should I continue to be, I may consider looking for other opportunities after the next few months are done. We shall see.

So far, though, I am working in politics as my SIDE Job, while my main source of income is still my business, which, I can also happily say, is busier than it has been in September for years. October is starting to fill up, too, so I am happy to see the opportunities open up before me. I can’t say how thankful I am and looking forward to the coming year ahead!

Also – my birthday is soon and I think I am going to actually throw myself a party for my awesome 33’s! I feel old, but not really. Actually, I feel like an adult, which is definitely something, lol. I am just working hard to keep my mojo going and singing along with the melody of life! HUZZAH!

August Has Been Amazing | Losing It With Kevin

I was just thinking yesterday how lucky I am and thankful I am for the month I have just had. Who knew August 2014 would be so amazing? I have seriously driven all over the country and seen pretty much every type of eco-system imaginable. Well, most of them.

On my way up to Ohio from Texas I drove through some “wetlands,” though only for a very short period, it was still pretty neat. I went up through Arkansas and saw gorgeous nature all around me, whether just forests, or rivers or creeks. I went straight through Memphis and Nashville along the “Music Highway,” and got to see solar fields, along with all the mountain landscape that the state is somewhat famous for. I even crossed the mighty Mississippi River. Atop all of that, once I reached Ohio, I got to enjoy the rolling hills and the many lakes and farms in the area.

From Ohio, I was fortunate enough to travel up to Michigan and spend some time in the rolling green hills and sugar sand beaches on the shore of Lake Michigan. Absolutely stunning, as always. After all of the work was done, I headed back down to Ohio for another week of work and play. I was able to get out and spend a lot of time on the numerous trails that the Dayton area has to offer. In total, I inline skated almost 100 miles. It was awesome.

I drove back down to Dallas and was there for a few days before heading off to New Mexico. New Mexico offers
