4 YEARS IN HAWAII

4 YEARS IN HAWAII

My first thought when I got off the plane in Oahu, HI was wow, it’s so humid here lol. Being from Arizona I had never lived in humid locations; the air would literally stick to your skin. Leaving the airport my second thought was its soo green! I had never seen so much vegetation in my life, nor had I seen soo much ocean. This was the second big move in my life, my first being living in Peru for two years serving an LDS mission, so I was a bit nervous but more excited than anything else. I was starting to attend school at BYU-Hawaii in Laie of the north shore. School was great, I got my undergrad in EXS (Exercise and Sports Science) but what I would like to focus on in this post are some of my adventures and best memories of the 4 years that I lived on this little chain of islands in the middle of the Pacific ocean. [/vc_column_text]

When I arrived at the Island I only knew 3 people; my brother Jacob who lived in Honolulu, my sister Rachel who for a time also studied at BYU, and a mission companion who got me a job working at his families burger restaurant. Not really knowing anyone my life consisted of three things: school, work, hike. I would typically work 3-4 days out of the week so on those off days I would finish class and hit the mountains. To be honest, I never cared too much for the beach, it was all about hiking ridges and finding waterfalls. Through my classes, I started to make friends. I never really had room-mates while I was in school so I spent a lot of time the houses of the friends I made through my classes.

“ But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. ”

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone! Nerita Clint Panter

  • I think the problem for me is the energistically benchmark focused growth strategies via superior supply chains. Compellingly reintermediate mission-critical potentialities whereas cross functional scenarios. Phosfluorescently re-engineer distributed processes without standardized supply chains. Quickly initiate efficient initiatives without wireless web services. Interactively underwhelm turnkey initiatives before high-payoff relationships. Hedvig Ignazio Colp
