Fuck... I think I might have an STD. Going to check out the situation tomorrow at the Doc's. 

I asked Drama the other day about how to become more awake.. Well I think I got my wake up call.

Just because it feels good does not make it a good idea.

In the clear but I will take this as a learning lesson. Always cover up. You don't know what kind of ammunition the enemy is packing.

Realized that i am inseucre and jealous the other day. Got drunk and lost my shit. Yup... I need to continue doing work on myself. 

Continuing traveling this month, Cambodia and a week in hiking around China. Always get back to nature and enjoy the world.

Went to Hong Kong for the weekend and realized that my life is pretty good. I made this life, enjoy it and continue to do what I have to make this lifestyle grow in the future.

In the last few months I have been traveling and living in China I have become a little disconnected from other people. Just got back from hiking in rice terraces that are over 700 years old. It hurts to think how people complain about ther lives or they say I wish I was doing something like that. It is just reinforcement of my thought of disconnectedness. The focus of my life is going in a completely different direction than others and I can not seem to understand why the life the life they do. It scares me.. I know Brad talked about it being lonely at the top and not that I am at the top but I understand and it is scary. It also doesn't help that I am away from everything I have known in my life. Scary realizations. Looking forward to being back in America communicating freely.

3 more months of working for my company then 1 month of travel and then trying to figure out life again.

Partying in Cambodia for a week. Got into Siem Reap about 7 pm to a beautiful sunset. Fuels the fire. I get to the hostel, check in and grab a few beers. People are on the balacony, i say hello ad we chat about travels and southeast asian governments. I do somefacebook for a bit and bounce downstairs for dinner. Meet a few guys fomr Mexico and we hang and then we go in search of the night market. We get a beer outside it is cool and nice women everywhere. Many young cambodian women ervery where. Some how China makes there women ugly while the rest of Southeast Asia enhances there women. Go down to a "hip hop" club playing western music, black eyed peas I think. I wander around and one girl is looking at me. Why wouldnt she? Just loving life in bubble of joy! We flirt she does not speak much english. She pushes me away so I push her away furthur. One of my mexican friends is dancing with a girl. I pull my girl close and make her sit on my lap. She smells good. We make out and she grabs my dick. Shit I have a girlfriend. I forget these details occasionally. We make out some more and i pick her up and run around the club a little bit. It's fun I don't care anymore. I put here down and make out some more. My mexican friend wanders away with his girl into the night and mine wants to follow them. She starts yelling at them. I put an end to that with my tounge. I feel her up some more and she tells me she wants to have boom boom. I assume that means tea and my girl friend gets pissed when I drink Tea with other girls so I yell party and had back to the club for one more beer as my mexican friend escapes into the night with his love.I go home alone because it is a god idea.  End scene.

Spent the last two days traveling around Siem Reap Cambodia, being Epic and traveling through temples. A little over crowded with people .

But it is the traveling and enjoying a different spot and relaxing with a cup of coffee and realize I want to continue to travel for the rest of my life.

Seeing the world with a fresh set of eyes every day or week or moth makes me enjoy life more. Spending time with my family is not taken for granted. Having a beer with my buddies is awesome. Little things in life are just more enjoyble and then all the stupid nonsense fades away. Stripped away to the pure nakedness of life. Joy.

Sitting here in Angkor Wat I realize that life is not filled with obstacles to be overcome it is filled with moments to be enjoyed and it is up to you to decide what to do with every moment.

My reflections of the moments.

Steve-O!

Awesome posts!  Traveling has been the greatest pleasure of my life also.  I traveled every summer for the whole summer for ten years.  If I ever won the lotto, I would put all my shit out on the front lawn with a sign that says free!  I would use the money for a suitcase/backpack and just take off.  No plans, no logistics just take off.  For me it was a winding road where I appreciated things and to find myself. 

Interesting thing is that many people think its harder picking up in foreign countries especially if you don't know the language, i personally believe its easier.  Show them that you are awesome and you are there just to add your awesomeness to the fun and excitement of the place.

Keep it up.

Aprreciate the love. A few things of note for self actualization side and note of Brad's book review.

Booked my flight to Cambodia a month ago and di notthing until the morning of. Had a four oclock flight. Got up at 9 exchanged chinese currency for American dollars . Booked a hostel , packed my clothes and took the metro to the train and was at the airport in plenty of time to enjoy a coffe. Got my visa when I landed in Siem Reap. In four hour I was ready to move to a different country. It is one of those things that makes me awesome. Spontaneity. Everyone is saying hurry... and I am just taking my time. I have done thise before and I will do it again successfully. Do not push your ideas on me.

Reading Tropic of Cancer. After reading about 95 pages it does seem a little scattered. But he is enjoying the dark side of life but he makes it true and in rough times it happens. AS I currently sit in Cambodia, picked up two books about the Khmer Rouge, an interesting topic as I spend time in the area. I meet a man about my age whose parents were killed by the Khmer Rouge and his Grandmother took care of him. He lives at a hostel make about 2 dollars a day. Driving people around. He is happy, he likes learning english. He is a genuine human being with a his four front teeth missing but his grin is great. He radiates humanity. He makes me enjoy everything more.  Just drank some fereshly squeezed orange juice, Delicious. 

I woner how I would feel if a government moved me from my home and killed my parents.. not happy. I have enjoyed an easy life but I also have taken advantage of opportunities and turned it into a great life. I will continue to take the steps neccessary to enjoy the life I live. Live on your edge and make life uncomfortable but rewarding. It's not who you are .. it's what you go through.

My girl just texeted me and told me she will be sleeping naked waiting for me to arrive home.

Welcome to the good life!!

I realize for me to take the next step I need to embrace the player in me. It is what is holding me back from just running amuck. Currently having a girlfreind has been nice but she relies on me alot more than I want. You can't keep me cooped up in here, I am a peacock, you gotta let me Fly! After reading Brad's old 30 day challenge I am challenging myself to start immediately when I get back to the states.
