Saving money, and getting good news

So i was working on trying to buy a new longboard, everywhere i went, they overpriced their decks, trucks, everything! I mean all i wanted was something i can go fast on. But every deck i came across was 150-200 dollars, i dont have the sort of money for that. that would mean i would have a complete board for $300+.

I was so relieved when i found churchillmfg, decks are 28-50 dollars, trucks are 20-40 dollars. My entire setup was 86 dollars, all i needed to buy was some wheels! If you're looking to buy a longboard: click here

Also, i'd like to thank everyone who has visited my website. I have reached my 1000 view mark today, and im so happy people are enjoying my blog. Expect more posts on my longboarding, cool videos, neat pictures, movie reviews. This is only the beginning. Thank you everyone!

Someones found his passion...


Can you believe this kid! Thats insane! I wonder how young he was when he first started. He's well on his way to becoming a pro. Props to him. If only i had started that young! Just today i found the perfect hill! I cant wait to ride that thing. Once, of course, i get my fancy new longboard and protection so i dont die the first time. Its bugging me so much that i haven't been able to ride all spring break.

Things you wish you could do.

I have a really good friend named Mario, he and i hang out often, and when we do im always blown away. This kid has so many talents! From yoyoing, to those light shows you do with gloves, to drumming and photoshop! He has so many talents that he is genuinely good at. Now me... I cant figure those talents out yet, i mean... i think im a good writer. But that's about it!

If i could make a list of talents i could have, i think it would be cool to know how to do html/java, because i've always thought that sort of stuff was just so neat. Id also want to be really good at longboarding, if you havent seen the videos already, longboarding is an amazingly fun thing to do, and i think it would be really great to be good at something

Now what about you guys? If you could be good at anything, what would it be?

Monday, monday

Hello everyone, first off i want to say thank you to everyone who has been helping me with my site and thank you to everyone who has visited, followed, and commented. This blog is turning out to be a really fun thing to do.

I guess i should tell everyone a little more about myself, im Aaron Pike, i live in San Diego,California. I grew up in upstate New York and moved here when i was 5. Some things i enjoy doing are disc golf, yoyoing, reading, listening to music, playing video games, looking at art, the list could go on. Im at the age now where i am trying to find who exactly i am, and what better way to find out? From my understanding, and a little research, blogging is a way to realize your passion, i dont know what that is yet, and for that very reason my blogs subtitle will be "The journey" as silly as that sounds, it encompasses EVERYTHING i will be blogging about, it is, in a sense a personal journey to find my passion. Im very excited as to what will happen and again thank you guys for helping me along the way.

Life and mortality of humans within atheisim, my personal viewpoint.

Here we are, im living, breathing, and 24/7you and i have thoughts racing through our heads.
From conception.
To death.
Thoughts flow and make you and i who we are.
     You have to wonder, as an atheist, how did religion come about? What was it that made us human beings believe that even though we are at the top of the food chain, there is a higher power? It is our thoughts that made us who we are, and it is those same thoughts that brought up probably one of the first things in civilization-- that being GODS. Gods were a comforting thing to prehistoric man, they comforted the confused little monkey and made reasoning for all the things he could see, now he knew he would go to heaven if he were to leave earth.

     Now, one of the more grim things about realizing our mortality (or whatever you like to call it), is that we are merely surviving to reproduce. But that's the humans genetic programming to do so! Theres no one judging us and seeing if we're fit to live in his celestial palace, as nice as that sounds though...

     This does nothing to satisfy our need to know what exactly we are supposed to do here on earth!

     What do i believe? Work on the here and the now, live for your fellow human being and show as much compassion for everyone as possible. You have one life to live, make it one that will go down in the history books as someone people would be proud to talk about.

      I have to ask my question to all of YOU now, from a non religious point of view, what is the meaning of life and mortality?

Thanks for reading my first real post.

I want to ride this so bad

One of my more favorite things to do in my free time is long board. I live in San Diego so hills come by pretty easily. But a truly great hill is a rare find.
Spring Break!!! Finally, spring break is here. Although im not all that sure if im doing much this next week, it should be very relaxing and very fun! Thanks everyone who followed me, i'll be sure to do the same if i already haven't. So what do you plan to do this glorious weekend?
