It's been a while since I've posted so I guess I'll have to sum up a lot in this one. Here are some highlights from my life over the past 3 weeks.
1. I liberated a rottweiler
Yes, it's true. Too make a long story short I adopted my sister-in-laws dog while she was out of town. Her ex-husband was supposed to be taking care of it while she was gone, but instead he just locked it up in a garage and spent the entire time at his brothers apt getting high on crystal meth (that's an entirely different story). If you live in Louisville you know that the past couple weeks have been REALLY cold. Because of this I took it upon my self to take the dog home with me until my sister in law got back. "Mia" was such a sweet dog too - a one of kind rottweiler. She is very well trained makes you fell protected. Stella grew very attached to her and I was really bummed out to give her back. Sometime in the next couple years I plan on getting another dog.
2. An old friend of mine past away
My friend Aaron Marrs was an inspiring filmmaker and was working on a crab fishing boat to earn money for a film he was working on about the commercial fishing industry in Alaska. He was working on the boat "Big Valley" in the Bering Sea when the winds came and seas rose to nearly 20-feet, capsizing the ship. There were six crewmen onboard. Three were rescued, but only one of them survived. The other three, including Aaron, the Captain, and one other, were officially declared by the U.S. Coast Guard Lost At Sea after 4 days of searching more than 1,700 square miles unsuccessfully. You can read more about Aaron here.
3. I stopped drinking coffee
I am now a diehard hot tea drinker. Coffee at times was to acidic for me and the health benefits for hot tea outweigh coffee by a landslide. I've been drinking a lot of mate, black tea and green tea. My favorites so far are Highland Coffee's "Moulin Rouge", PG Tips and Guayaki's Yerba Mate.
