21 Day Happiness Challenge – Day 4

21 Day Happiness Challenge, Day 4 - Papa Pineapple with EJ

ERMAHGERD! I love that image of Eston and Papa Rod! Look how stinking happy that boy is! He loves his Papa Pineapple! Very old picture but one of my favorites.

So now that we’re smiling along with EJ, let’s get on to day 4.

3 New Things I Am Grateful For

1. I am grateful for Coke Zero. Some people have their coffee, people in the UK have their tea and crumpets. I have me some Coke Zero. Luckily they came up with this stuff cause I drink a lot of it. If it wasn’t for this stuff, I’d be even fatter than I am =)

2. I am grateful for Photoshop. Photoshop makes my work, and random things I do on the internet so much more simple. And it allows me to get creative in ways other programs cannot. I could use a free photo edited suite like GIMP, but it’s really not the same. Take for instance this WebRanking team photo. We lost 2 members of that team, and Chris and Tony are in Portland. We have no way to retake the photo, so Photoshop to the rescue!

Photoshop FTW!

3. I am grateful for Coodies! Time to throw them into the mix. Right now we’re only 2 members strong, Kellan Cameron, Andy Davis, and myself. Believe it or not, at one point in time we had close to 30 people that could call themselves Coodies! Of them were Ben Bastyr, Casey Bengston, Rob Bruns, Alain Intharath…and plenty more. Still friends with the others on Facebook but the bond between Kellan, Andy, and myself is fo real!

Coodies for Life!!!

So real in fact, we all got matching tattoos!!!

That’s right. COODIES 4 LIFE!!!

1 Positive Experience in the Past 24 Hours

Winning on FanDuel. I’ve now won 2 weeks in a row. This week was a little smaller win, just $14 on a $2 bet. Nothing like the $300 I won last week, but still a win and a positive experience nonetheless. It makes watching football games you normally wouldn’t care about more interesting.

Got a good exercise in tonight thanks to Eston. Did 33 Eston Curls, 11 Eston Bench Presses, lifted some weights with him, and did some jumping jacks. Worked up a good sweat. It was a lot of fun.


After playing some video games tonight, I again attempted meditating. Just a short 15 minute period. Thanks to all for the advice. Still not sure I’m doing it right, but I am trying. I am gonna try and get in contact with someone more knowledgeable thanks to Melissa Kristine. So we’ll see how that goes.

Random Act of Kindness

I wrote a poem to my best bud, Kellan, and posted it on his Facebook wall for all to see. Here it is:


I contemplated writing you a poem
Then I thought “nah, that’d be gay”
But hey what the hell, most people
used to think we were anyway.

So for you I’ll write stuff that’s manly
And I’ll try not to call you snookums.
For in this place, they all can see
When we both try and rub bums.

Everyone who knows me knows you,
If they don’t they’re missing out.
Cause you are the bestest friend
And that really is without a doubt!

<3 you snookums! (aw crap, I just couldn't resist!)

Kelland and Paul
