Moving along, and out

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. I’ve been busy moving all my stuff back to AZ. There are so many things I want to do with my time now but it’s hard to decide because they all are kind of mutually exclusive. I can’t really do more than one of these things at a time (without messing something up).

1. I got into an internship program with a fire department in AZ. It is a great opportunity, but I deffered until the next academy because I know my time with jiujitsu is more limited than with fire fighting. It’s still something that I want to do but I am putting it on the back burner for a while. I really need to do more volunteer work in the community I live in in AZ. I have a great resume but not enough community service to really be the strongest candidate I can be.

2. I want to open a Brazilian JiuJitsu academy. I think that can wait until I get my black belt though. I think it also needs to wait until I have a solid job (out of probationary period) with a fire dept.

3. I started a business making Brazilian Jiujitsu videos that I believe will allow me to use my travel benefits more and train with a lot of different people around the world.

4. I would like to buy a house/apartment in Brazil in the near future. I am worried about the exchange rate though…It is so low right now, I am worried it will jump back up and I will have lost a bunch of money as a result. However, the olympics AND world cup will be held in Brazil in the next 6 years and I don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to capitalize on that.

Anyway, lunch time
