Game Of Thrones Season 2!

Game of Thrones is by far my favorite television show ever. Season one was the most intense dramatic opening to a series I have ever seen. After a year long wait they have finally released the season 2 trailer. Everyone I know that has seen this show says I should read the books. Which I plan to. I cannot wait for season two in April.

I have never been a big fan of winter, up until this one. About 2-3 years ago I went to a ski resort called Blue Mountain. This is where I skiid for the first time. Usually, this place isn't seen as a beginner area. For hours I was falling every time I went down a hill. It was a lot of fun and a good experience. By the end of the day I was zipping down the hills no problem. Having the itch for months after I left. Even though I never ended up going the next two seasons. This season I managed to get some friends to drive up to Glen Eden (another ski hill). Two years later and I'm doing better than ever. We plan on driving up north to Moonstone, one of the best around.

My Life Long Dream

Ever since I was a kid I've always dreamed of going skydiving. Skydiving to me is one of the most interesting sports, if it's considered a sport. I hope to go this summer. BUT, that is not my dream. My life long dream is actually to do something similar, basejumping. Basejumping caught my attention a few years ago when I was browsing videos on youtube, I'll link them at the end. I never thought such a thing was
possible. Gliding down mountains at a 100 mph is amazing, or even just out of a helicopter (more realistic if you ask me). My plan right now is to check skydiving off my list this summer, and work my way from there.

This is the first video of base jumping I saw when it first caught my attention.

Top Five Favorite Video Games

Number One
Star Wars: The Old Republic

This game has been in my sight for a very long time, and it has finally arrived! My first character I rolled was a jedi consular. A fun class to play. In comparison to WoW, I would say this class is like a priest. I find it is very overpowered when it comes to questing. I have been able to solo every quest and eroic 2 so far at level 30. With the acception of one class quest, where I had to fight a jedi master  levels higher than myself. I am looking forward to the level 50 content. It is interesting to think about how the raid system is going to be, and how difficult.

Top Five Favorite Video Games

Number Two
This was a tough decision. My top two are both great games. I love world of warcraft. First I should begin with my personal background within the world of warcraft. I started playing at 2 to 3 years ago, primarily either a paladin or a mage. At first I was really into the pvp aspect of the game. I decided to reroll a warrior afterwards, dedicating him mainly to PvE. The warrior was one of the best tanks on the server at the time, and managed to clear endgame content not too long after release. There were times I would spend up to 20 hours straight in one sitting just gathering gold. I to this day still play, on and off. World of Warcraft will forever remain in my heart.

Top Five Favorite Video Games

Number Three
The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time

This zelda game is yet another classic. I have spent countless hours playing, and beating this game over and over. I was never a huge fan of young Link. And the one thing that turned me off was that there wasn't too much interaction with other characters. Especially when you become older Link and everyone turns into zombies. My favorite thing about this game is definitely the temples. The amount of time it takes to figure everything out is a lot of fun to me.

I enjoyed the fire temple the most out of all these temples. Simply because of the final boss. I enjoyed using the hammer for the first time on that pretty face.

Top Five Favorite Video Games

Number 4
(all images are from

Halo 1 is one of the best original xbox games I have ever played. This game brings back memories. Playing system link with my brothers for hours on end. This game is a great multiplayer game. They have just recently came out with this same game on 360 with graphic updates, added online multiplayer options, and some more interesting features. Halo one all the way to reach were definitely my most memorable video game moments if i've ever had one.

Top Five Favorite Video Games

I've decided I'm going to share a little bit about myself. I am a big video game fanatic, and I'm going to share with you my top ten favorite video games starting with number five. Please leave as much feedback as you would like. Positive or negative.
Number 5
Super Smash Bros
I have always loved this video game. My favorite version is the one on N64. Such a classic game. The game came out in '99, and to this day I still enjoy playing Super Smash Bros. This game definitely deserves to be on my top ten list. In my opinion, this game should be remade for xbox or pc.

I guess for my first post ill tell you a little bit about my christmas break. I went to the Himalayan mountains with my wife! What beautiful place it was. We stayed in a little "village" no more than a few miles away from them. We had the most beautiful view of the mountains. I'll share a few pictures of the mountains for you guys!
