Tomorrow, 4th of July, is a big day for all the Americans. We are going to celebrate the Independence Day. Some of you will travel and meet your families, some of you will watch the fireworks show, and some of you, including me, will have nothing to do tomorrow. You are just relaxing and hoping the weekend will go for eternity.
Whatever your plans are, you need to remember again what Independence Day truly is. Here’s a YouTube video to remind you to some of the famous quotes given by the previous US presidents and to give a tribute to those who sacrificed themselves for the freedom that we enjoy every day in US. Happy the 234th birthday for US!

I have been working in the paintball field as a referee for about three years now. It is not a full-time job, but I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed not just the paintball itself as a sport, but also the people who are working there. I mean this is the kind of job that doesn’t really feel like a job, because you are having fun every time you work there. Granted, I’m not really good at it, but I think paintball is a great sport. It demands accuracy, agility, and team works. Plus, it’s not too expensive (at least here at PCC, $15 per person – 2 hours game, unlimited ammo).
Today we had our annual PCC Man’s Paintball Tournament. We always have this tournament for our collegians to compete with each other. This year’s champion is the Falcons. The championship is actually between the same two collegians, Titans and Falcons who were in finals also last year, but the Falcons had better luck today so they won. They were finished with a tie, but the Falcons had more team member left, so they won.
In case you were wondering about how our paintball fields and shop look like, I took few pictures of them. Since this is going to be my last semester here in PCC, this paintball game would be my last game that I referee and also the end of my employment there. It was kinda sad, but life must go on, right? We were using Tippmann 98 gun and Reaction paintballs. They are not the greatest, but they sure works just fine.
The highlight of today is indoor skydiving. We chose Flyaway Indoor Skydiving as our destination. It was awesome. The whole thing was great, starting from the guides, place, and the experience. To be able to properly fly was harder than I thought. It wasn’t as easy as it looks. I actually had the video, but it’s still on DVD so I can’t show it now. Go to http://flyawayindoorskydiving.com for their detail information about the price, etc.
