First and foremost, Happy New Years! I know I know, i’m late, but thats ok. If your interested, contact me and let me know your resolutions, goals, or plans for the new year. For myself, its been a busy start to the year already. I’ll start with my resolution of sorts. As you all know I recently (August) went through bariatric surgery, so one of my continued goals is to maintain my healthy living changes and continue to reach and surpass my weight loss goals. As I post this, my current weight is 296lbs. I started this journey at 420lbs, so in total, I have lost a total 124lbs. My goal weight is around 250, so almost there. Another goal for this year is to get my finances on track, organizing and reducing my hobbies, and spending more time with family. For the most part, thats it as far as goals and accomplishments I want to make this year.
Car Hobby –
I am still very much into collecting hot-wheels, M2, Johnny Lightning, and various other die cast collectible cars. These range in scale from 1:64 through 1:12 scale cars. Right now my focus is on Trucks, Camero’s, Corvettes, Mustang’s, and JDM cars. Below are a few photos of a portion of my displayed cars.
Cars on display at work.
M2 and Various Diecast Cars
The first photo consists of the cars I currently have at work. These cars you might recognize from the Fast & Furious franchise and consist of Brian’s Ford F-150 & Mitsubishi Eclipse, Leon’s Skyline, and Brian’s Toyota Supra from F&F I. Also in the picture is Brian’s Nissan Skyline & Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, and Suki’s Honda S2000 from F&F II. You can also see the blue Nissan Skyline and white Toyota Supra that Brian part picks for his car in 2009’s Fast and Furious movie. And lastly is Brian’s Subaru Impreza from Fast & Furious 6. The second picture shown is a bookshelf which I used to organize my M2 and various die cast cars at home. These are various cars consisting mostly of older custom Mercury’s and muscle cars.
Currently I am working on a Revell 1:25 1941 Chevy pickup (no current progress pictures). Model kits I have on deck for once the Chevy is complete are a Tamiya Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec II, a Tamiya 1:24 scale Toyota Supra, and a 1968 Z/28 Chevy Camero. Progress pictures will be posted for each kit as they progress.
RC Cars & Drones –
This is a fun hobby that I have recently gotten into. At current time, I have a Exceed RC 1:10 MadSpeed Drift Car – 350 Style and Jada’s Fast & Furious line including Brian’s Nissan Skyline from Fast & Furious II, and Han’s Veilside RX-7 from Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift. As far as drones go, I have various hand held drones and a Imperial Biker Scout Drone.
As far as gaming goes, my pc is not doing so well. This means I am limited in what I can play via pc. Right now my pc gaming consists of WoW, Rift, Guild Wars II, Auto Mechanic Simulator 2018, DayZ, 7 Days 2 Die, Sims4, and Minecraft. My console gaming consists of Red Dead Redemption II, Injustice II, Overwatch, Call of Duty, PUBG, Spider-Man, God of War, and Fortnite on the PS4. On the Xbox1 I am playing Assassin’s Creed Origins.
As of this posting, I have just started my last semester in my Master’s Degree program. The class I am taking right now is Corporate Law, which will be followed by an exam prep class. Graduation is scheduled for around April, in which I will have more free time on my hands!
Well thats about it for updates for now. As they happen I will post, so stay tuned and enjoy!
