Lugeboarding Down Grand Ave.

I'm going down Grand Ave., and boy, is it a bumpy ride. I had a hard time holding on to the camera and controlling my longboard at the same time. I'm insane in the membrane. I love going fast.

Speedin' Down 1st Street

This time it's brighter and there aren't any idiot cars out there trying to run me over. Watch my clip entitled "Extreme Skateboarding" down below to see what I have to go through every other day. This time it was a sweet and relatively smooth downhill bomb run.

Happy Together

Okay, guys. I know that this is super cheesy, but I'm happy being with my wife, Sarah. I wanted to show us both spinning around, but since there was no one else to tape this, we decided to improvise. Is this video something that we should have just kept to ourselves?

SK8TING Down Grand

I'm skateboarding down Grand Ave. in downtown LA. If there weren't all these cars around, I'd totally go down the hill all the way.

I love going downhill fast. Danger is my middle name. I think it would be awesome if they closed down Grand Ave. just so I could skateboard down the hill.

I've added a few more pictures to Christine's album on my Yahoo Photo Album. There's a ton of pictures so I think I'm just going to try to save them to a CD. Sorry. I just don't think I can upload that many. It takes too long. Click on the link to see more of her pictures. Posted by Picasa

Dysfunctional Christmas

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas. I had a great Christmas weekend with my wife, family, and friends. Basically, I ate all weekend. On Saturday, I had lunch with my old friends from San Diego. Then, I went to eat out with Sarah's family. On Sunday, we had lunch with Berendo Street Baptist Church sunday school teachers. Then, we went to eat at my parents' place. I must be getting old because I can't chow down like I used to.

Christmas lunch with the Berendo Street Baptist Church sunday school teachers. We had lunch at this really famous Korean BBQ restaurant. A lot of Korean celebrities go there to eat. Jen, Jenny, Iris JDSN, Laura Kim JSN, Tony, Kate, Grace, my wife, and me. Posted by Picasa

We had Christmas dinner at my parents' place. My mom made a really good pot roast. My family has 2 new members now-my wife and my sister's husband, Sae Woon. Our family has grown 50% so far from a family of four. It may keep growing once the grandkids start showing up. Posted by Picasa

Christmas Eve dinner with Sarah's family at a chinese buffet in Burbank. I couldn't pig out as much as I usually do since I was still full from lunch. I only had 3 servings. Posted by Picasa

Christmas lunch with my old friends from UCSD. We had lunch on Saturday, December 24, 2005 at the Dragon restaurant in Ktown. The friends who attended were Chris, Sam, Joyce, Yoon Sun, Phil and his family, and Christina (Kang Mi). We try to have a reunion every year. It was good seeing everyone again. Each year people seem to add to their family. There's always someone getting married or having a kid. Posted by Picasa

Extreme Skateboarding


I think I'm going to be an artist too. I'm pretty sure I can put junk together and call it "art". No wonder why most artists are poor and starving.

This is another boring clip of me skating by the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA.

I Work In Here

This is a very short clip of the Wells Fargo Building where I work. Boring.

After a nice filet mignon dinner and some cocktails, I feel like breakdancing. Posted by Picasa

Where did everybody go? I was only trying to breakdance. Posted by Picasa

Hey, baby, do you wanna dance? Posted by Picasa

Everyone at Andy's party was having a good time dancing until I got to the dance floor. I think I scared everyone away. I'm a freak on the dance floor. Posted by Picasa

Here's a picture of me trying to breakdance at Andy's office Christmas party last Friday night, December 16, 2005. It's a good thing that nobody knew who I was. Posted by Picasa

David and Sarah Kim's Matchmaking Service

Sarah and I are going to start a matchmaking service where we are going to hook up all our single friends. If you would like for us to introduce you to our other single friends, then let me know by emailing me. All my friends are good people. I'm a pretty good judge of character. Remember, everyone knows that marriage is the key to happiness. Don't let society tell you otherwise. If you find the right person, then life will be fantastic. Actually, there have been several studies that indicate that married people are generally happier and healthier than single people. I want everyone to experience the happiness that I have. Don't be shy people. Live life to the fullest. Carpe Diem! That's my motto. Let us introduce you to the love of your life. Also, remember I'm a reverend too. So, if it works out, I can marry you guys. I'm also an attorney so in case things don't work out. . .(I'm just kidding about the last part. Forget that awful last sentence.) We'll set you up with your dream girl or guy.

Celebrating Davemas

December 18 is my birthday. I like to refer to it as Davemas. Davemas is a time when you celebrate life. On that day, people should live life to the fullest. You've got to live life to the max! It's also about spending time with loved ones. It's not about giving gifts like the outrageously commercialized xmas. I think that Jesus would throw a fit if he saw what was happening on his birthday. Xmas has become a day of material excess. People are getting stressed out waiting in lines. They're beating each other up trying to snatch up the last of the 70% off items. People are getting in more credit card debt buying expensive and useless junk. People have forgotten about loving family and friends and instead have focused on accumulating stuff.

My birthday has always been celebrated together with xmas b/c my family was always busy working during the holiday season. They never had time to go out, because my birthday was always during the extremely busy weekend before xmas. It was a good way to save on money, annoyance of getting gifts, and saving time. I didn't mind too much, because I didn't care about getting gifts or celebrating birthdays anyway. Each birthday reminds me of my inevitable death. I want to stay young forever. That's why it's important to live life to the extreme. I don't want to regret all the stuff I didn't do when I get older later.

I want to focus my life on making great memorable experiences. I want to do things that I love doing. I want to focus it on family and friends. I don't want to be pressured by what society says. I've always been an iconoclast anyway. Some people think that I'm eccentric. Other people have used other words. I don't really care what other people think about me if it's something that I want to do. Of course, I want to be nice to other people and want others to like me. But, if it's something that I want to do and it's not infringing on other people's rights, than I don't give a @#$% what other people think. I don't want to keep up with the Joneses. At the Kim Family household, we spend time being thankful for what we have and we just simply appreciate one another.

Anyway, enough of my ranting. This past Friday, our office let us leave early, but I stayed at the office anyway because I had to go to my friend, Andy Nagai's office party that was close to my work. I helped out Andy take portrait photos of his co-workers. After I had a few drinks, I started breakdancing, spinning, and handstanding on the dance floor. I'm waiting for Andy to send me the pictures that he took so that I can upload it to my blog.

On Saturday, I did the laundry, washed my car, recycled, and did other crappy errands we all have to do. What can I say? I like to be clean and organized. I don't like to clean, but I hate being dirty more so I do it. I'm pretty anal and obsessive. Oh well.

Sunday, I went to church and taught Sunday School. I hope no one blames me if they grow up to be messed up. I went to Sarah's parents' house and played with her nephew Sung Ho. I said "hi" to Whoony, Sarah's younger brother, who is on break from NYU Dental School. Then, I spent a nice quiet evening alone with my wife, Sarah. It's nice to cherish each other. I know that time goes by way too fast so I want to appreciate every minute of life. Everyone knows that marriage is the key to happiness.

PJ is Coming Back!

I decided to post this video that was taken by Keith just because it was saved on my camera. All it shows is me giving "daps" to PJ who is coming back to work at the office.
