|Two patient dogs watch the others fight. Notice tiny dog make off with some meat. Yes, those are leopard skinned dogs, and the bull dog has a boxing glove, just because I can! If you don't like it, draw your own picture mwuhaha!|
After the two orange dogs wait for the fighting to end and go to claim the prize for their patience...
|After letting the other dogs eat the meat, the patient dogs have to fight for the leftover bones|
|He doesn't look like he's gonna help that first guy...|
|What an idiot|
How do you make yourself an "early bird", and not a "first mouse"? Caution. Courage. Conflict. In other words, preparation, but really quick and hard preparation. Not the kind the orange dogs above did. More like this mouse here

This entire blog post was inspired by someone that is very special to me. Someone that motivates me to keep going harder at improving myself in everything I do (and I do a lot of things). My girlfriend. I'm writing this to tell her how much she inspires me. I have never met a girl with such a wide array of talents before. You've probably seen the statement "Instead of searching for Ms. Perfect, try to make yourself the man she deserves" before, maybe with slightly different words. It just became real to me.
I've been working hard at improving in basketball, software programming and game development, drawing and artwork, playing and composing music, my spiritual life, and even this blogging thing is meant to improve my ability to write comprehensive and interesting pieces. I never thought I'd actually meet someone as awesome as she is, or that such a person could actually fall for me too. She actually likes my weird geek-jock combo!
To the most amazing girl I have ever met, the girl that makes me laugh, and allows me to be totally transparent, I want to say thank you for being awesome and for motivating me to keep becoming more awesome myself! And for you skeptics that would want to remind me of idioms like "If it's too good to be true...", hold that thought. She doesn't like anime or video games so there!
