On this day, 5 years ago, I lost a good friend in a very tragic accident. I've worn this green bracelet ever since, to remember and honor him. I think of him quite often and I still don't understand why he was taken from us. He was one of the greatest guys I've ever met and even if you asked me to I couldn't say one bad thing about him. He was smart, really talented and just a great friend to have. I've known him since I was really small and we were always in the same classes throughout grade school. There's so much in life that I wish he could have had the chance to experience. I get really upset just thinking about the fact that his time here was cut short. It's not fair that someone so good and pure doesn't get to experience all the joys of life to it's full extent. I like to think that he is in a much better place now and is resting at peace. He is missed daily by many people and I'm confident he watches over all of us.

Today I am taking off my green bracelet and putting it somewhere safe. Not once have I taken it off and I feel that now I should. His name is starting to wear off and the bracelet is beginning to wear thin. I'm going to keep it in a place where I will know where to find it. It's amazing that it hasn't broken over the years but I like to think that's because of the power that is behind it. I will never forget you Kyle. You were truly a great person and I thank you for looking out for me in life. May you rest in peace good friend.

Dr. Pepper

You either love it or you hate it.
Or maybe you kinda like it sometimes.

Recently I've been drinking too much of it because my choices at home are as follows; Water, Dr. Pepper, Milk (whole, ew) or Kool-Aid.

I know the obvious choice is Kool-Aid but you have to make it yourself and that takes time so I usually go with the quick and easy, Dr. Pepper. No glass, no ice; just a cold can of 23 flavors.

But I'm growing tired of it to be honest. I will always love a cold fresh Dr. Pepper a the right time but I think I need a break from it.

Now I know what you're saying.
You're saying, "Is this something really worth blogging about?"

The answer is:

Let me just say, that I do not like bottled Dr. Pepper or any other soda (usually, unless it's reallllllly convenient at the time.) Canned drinks are the best in my opinion.

Sidenote: I've only ever had
Coca-Cola out of a glass bottle and it's
the best of all but TOO EXPENSIVE!

Dr. Pepper from a fountain machine is always iffy. I try not to risk it and go with either root beer or Mt. Dew. :D

Another observation I've gathered about Dr. Pepper is that it is possibly the worst drink ever when it is hot. Room temperature is not very good at all. Plus, there's the Flat Factor, (hereafter referred to as the FF.) The FF is the amount of time the soda takes to become flat and how good it tastes after the FF is achieved.

Below is a list of sodas and their rank in taste after the FF is reached.
(Based on a scale of 1-10)
Sunkist 10 2 hours 6
Coca-Cola 9 1.45 hours 5
Sprite 7 1 hour 4
Mt. Dew 9 2 hours 6
Root Beer 7 3 hours 9*
Pepsi 5 1.7 hours 3
ANYTHING DIET 3 30 minutes 2
Dr. Pepper 10 1.5 hours 1

Based on the graph above you can see where Dr. Pepper ranks among other leading sodas before and after the FF.

*Root Beer is rather weird and is mostly appealing when flat. See Unsolved Mysteries

All in all, I will [probably] always be a fan of Dr. Pepper. It was created in Texas, which is awesome. It has 23 different flavors, which is awesome. It's the only soda to graduate college/university, which is awesome. I'm surprised they didn't call it Dr. Awesome. That would sell, am I right?

As usual thanks for reading and I'd love to hear what you've got to say on the subject! Leave me a comment and blog you soon!

This poor little blog has been abandoned for a full year.
365 (+2) days of non-bloggage.

So much has happened in that time that I can't even begin to cover it all in just a blog post.
I would love to say,
"I'm going to try and update my blog more often"
but for some reason my blog always gets left in the dust.
It gets put on the back burner next to other projects.
Like an old dusty book on a shelf full of the same.

So to be honest, I guess we'll just have to see when I post another blog update.
I just really wanted to address the fact that I went a full year without blogging.
Luckily I didn't do something that crazy with YouTube.
(Although my video posts are pretty infrequent... haha)

Well I suppose that's all for now.
If anything blog worthy happens I know where to go.

Above you will find a small collection of compact discs, CDs, with art on them.
I used to do CD art for a hobby for pretty much one reason...
1. To make my CDs not look lame.

In a reasonably recent video I posted, I showed the book that contained these CDs and I thought it would be kinda cool to share some of the actual art with you.

Now, there are dozens and dozens more of these, but I just picked a few that I liked a whole lot. We'll call these, "My Favorites"

I guess I could talk about them a bit. So... Here it goes, from top to bottom, and left to right...

1. Headphones! What!? They're awesome.. haha
2. I remember this one. I wanted to draw a panda. So I did... On a CD.
3. Ruler + Markers = This one.
4. This one is very blank, but I like it because the way it's laid out. Cards were right next to me.
5. This one is definitely in my top 3 or something... I made it around Christmas time, obviously. haha It has a great mix of songs on it as well!
6. So this one is very awesome. Very simple too. Here's what I did; I rigged a portable CD player, so that it would still play the CD while the lid was open. When this works properly, the CD plays and goes around and around really fast. All you have to do is touch it ever so slightly, with a marker and it makes rings! Cool huh?! Mhm, I did different colors as you can see.. I have a few like this, but this one is one of the best of those.
7. The Sandlot... Come on.. Classic. (Funny thing, it's not even the soundtrack, just a mix! )
8. So abstract. I really like the way the colors relate. I don't know, I just really like it ok? haha
9. Notebook paper! It's a cool design for a CD I think hehe
10. I LOVE Woodstock! I loved him more than Snoopy. So I did a design with him. Small, cute. Just all around awesome. :)
11. Pizzzzzaaa... I'm assuming I ate it that day.
12. This one is a combination of 3 different band's album covers. I just like how it turned out.
13. Fossils. Something definitely died on this CD...
14. Again with the Christmas. Only I don't think this one was made around Christmas. *shrug*
15. Simple, yet disturbing. Looks cool and makes you think. I dig.
16. Not sure how I came up with this one. Pretty much random. haha
17. I went through a Play-Doh phase as a young adult. I'll probably go through another in my later years or something...
18. Super Nintendo controllers are freakin' cool. The color scheme is so weird, but it works! I liked it, so bam. Definitely in my top 3.
19. This was a rap CD. Now it makes sense.
20. Another ring CD, with the player rigging technique. Lime green and purple. Woot!

So that's pretty much it. I have loads more but these are really the best.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and looking at them!
Until next timeeee,
Cade <3

Guess who has had an amazing last few days!!!

That's right. They've been SO good, I just HAD to Blog about it!

Well. It all started off on this past Wednesday. . .

I had the first exam in this class and it only took me 15 minutes to take! It was so easy!
SO that was GUURREAT!
And then.
No, I did not go ice fishing...

It was so great. The weather there (for the most part) was super awesome. I got to have AMAZING PINKBERRY and nom nom and delicious PIZZA! Ah, it was so great just being with her and there and. . . bah. Yes. <3>

Did I mention I didn't pay for a single thing the whole trip?
Oh I didn't?!
WELL. You see, when I was on the plane there, I sorta struck up a conversation with the 2 guys next to me and they were really cool guys talking about how much fun they were going to have on their vacation to NYC.

Having been to NYC 2 times before, I decided to chime in and talk to them too and tell them some things that they should definitely see and do!

It was all very friendly and casual for conversation and it lasted the whole plane ride!
Such nice people! SO nice, that the guy next to me GAVE me a $100 BILL!!!
My goodness I didn't know nice people still existed!
SO yeah. That was so frickin' cool. RAY, if you're some how READING THIS? LOL THANKS DUDE!! hahaha
Sam and I proceeded to have a friggen awesome time this past weekend and it was just super duper amazing and I'm really glad I decided to go. :)

I arrived back in Florida last night, (Monday) and I forgot I had a quiz TODAY!!! (TUESDAY) EEK!
what's that Cade!? Your luck hasn't run out just yet!?

That's right. The Quiz was postponed to next week. hehehe
I'm sure more subtle good things have happened that I've forgot to put but you get the gist of it all.

Here's to another FANTASTIC week ahead! (hopefully) I wish all my good luck, good fortune and great spirit to you all!!! And with that, I bid you farewell for now. :)
PS. Check out the AMAZING Rainbows I saw this week(end)!!!
This one is in NYC area-ish
And this one is back home in Florida. Both were just beautiful. Such a rare sight for me.

I know it's been awhile.
But is that really my fault!?
Absolutely not.
Ok, alright, it is 100% my fault.
My bad...

Ok let's just get this party (blog) started.

LAST TIME, IN CADE'S LIFE... We saw him fly through the spring semester and rip right into his summer break! Now... we meet back up with our favorite person ever Cade, in Florida where he now LIVES!!
*dramatic music*
BUT FIRST, how did Cade wind up here!?
Will he save the world!?
Is he awesome!?
All this AND MORE, in this blog post...
*quieter music*
Kay, enough of that, well this has been put off for about 5 months. Isn't that great?! nah. Not really. Let me get you up to speed. Long version or short version? Middle Length, you say? fine fine fine... *mumbles* wasn't really an option but ok whatever you say...
Well, I spent my whole month of May in Minnesota again working with my lovely Aunt.
I basically worked 2 full tim
e jobs, so around 80ish hours a week.
That was my life for a good 25 days or w/e
It was tiring and fun. But mostly,
made pretty good bank though.. $_$
I spent two whole weeks in the lovely state of Oregon meeting up with lots and lots of GREAT people.
I got the chance to meet and hang out with some familiar faces, that I haven't seen in a long long time and that
was great!
I also got to m
eet some new faces which was also great! AND, I finally got to meet some people I've been really excited and anxious to meet for awhile.
It really was a great time at the gathering as well
There was a gathering in Portland and there were a TON of people!
Both days
were really cool, I can't decide on my favorite but I really liked the zoo for sure.
If you missed the gathering in Portland, then shame on you. Just kidding but it was a lot of fun and I know everyone just had a great time! Here's some pictures of what kind of fun went down!

Great stuff eh? That's really just the tip of the iceberg though... hehe
the wonderful Oregon trip, ThatZak and I took a trip to the wonderful city NEW YORK CITY!!!
and let me tell you... this was an amazing trip.
It really was a trip that I'll remember forever and ever.
We got to hangout with THE coolest people EVUR.
Oh, yeah there was the 789 gathering and lots of people were there and I met some people which was really really awesome, but besides meeting the few people I really wanted to meet, I didn't like the event as much as others. There were too many people for my comfort. BUT HEY! Loads of people had a great time and that's great for them so woot! Anyways, I could really go on about this trip forever but I think it'll be best if you just see some pictures instead. :)

Oh and the best part of all...
I got to hang out with this sweet girl.
After all of those amazing adventures, I went home and stayed there for the month of August. Well, most of it anyways. I also turned 20 that month. Lots of people came over including Her :)
So that was very very fun.
It was time to MOVE to Florida! In case you don't know watch THIS!!!
this is me driving to Florida. Someone amazing took it.
So that's where we are now! Chillin' and going to school! Making videos and music! :)
It's all just going really great and I'm sorry I haven't updated you sooner.
I think this is a good enough blog to make up for it.
Forgive me?
Well, I guess this is the awkward part where I end it..
Update soon! Love,
Cade <3
