Timeout

Yep, I have lost the want-to when it comes to this blog. I do not know how long this will last. Hopefully, I will resume this blog with a renewed vigor later. Just don't want to right now.

Say Goodbye

Things are changing
It seems strange and
I need to figure this out
You've got your life
I got mine
But you're all I cared about
Yesterday we were laughing
Today I'm left here asking
Where has all the time gone now
I'm left alone somehow
Growing up and getting older
I don't want to believe it's over

[Chorus:]
Don't say goodbye
Cause I don't wanna hear those words tonight
Cause maybe it's not the end for you and I
And although we knew
This time would come for me and you
Don't say anything tonight
If you're gonna say goodbye

Do you remember
In December
How we swore we'd never change
Even though you're leaving
Thought our feelings
Would always stay the same
I wish we could be laughing
Instead I'm standing here asking
Do we have to end this now
Can we make it last somehow
We both know what we've gotta say, not today
Cause I don't wanna leave this way

[Bridge:]
And if it's over
It hurts but I'm giving you my word
I hope that you're always
Happy like we were
Happy like we were

[Altro:]
Yesterday we were laughing (if you're gonna say goodbye)
Today I'm left here asking (if you're gonna say goodbye)
And although we knew this time would come for me and you
Don't say anything tonight
If you're gonna say goodbye

I PEED ON MY HANDS!!!!

Which has been a running thing in our school amongst the guys. Some guy walks up to you with wet hands, wipes his hands on you, and screams " I PEED ON ME HANDS"!!. Then walks away laughing while you stand stunned and unsure. By the third and fourth time you just punch them when they get close. Spencer, unfortunately, has formed a habit of turning the lights off when the urinals are full. Little punk. Lol.

I Stole The Front Seat., I Must Be Cold-Blooded

Or at least that's what Jamie thought when she returned to the car to find me grinning evilly at her through the window. Haha. The look on her face was priceless. The shock! The outrage! While she fumed in the backseat, I quietly savored the moment. She is usually pretty good about getting the front seat, but she made a careless move and I took FULL advantage it!


That put me in a pretty good mood to say the least.

I do believe I am ready to fight to the death for my right to wear my mossy, green polo shirt to school! Just because our school code says all shirts must be a shade of blue, white, or black, doesn't mean one shouldn't be allowed to wear mossy green polos! Where is my union?! Oh, and while on the subject of 'unions', I will say that the original idea for unions was a good thing. But what they are now, is just an excuse to sue the company, or demand a higher wage you may not deserve. They have totally morphed into a waste. Such a waste.

I finally woke up when my alarm went off and STAYED awake. After gently turning off the alarm at 5:30, I dragged myself out of bed, into shorts, a t-shirt, a pair shoes, and into a P90x workout Arms & Biceps workout. Tony Horton is just plain freaky. Funny, but a freak. But he can pump iron, I will give him that.


The smell of chicken is causing my nose to pull my face towards the table. I must follow my nose.


Toodles!

Back To School

Yes. It's official. This is going to be a long year. Yep. A new principle has take over 4square. And new the new regime has brought more rules, regulations, and procedures. Not to mention, the schools infamous Mrs. K has joined our class room. Her contribution being her ever-present stop watch. Timing everything and making sure no time is wasted. Oh, how things have changed. Oh well, new rules means more ways to break them.

But, that being said, the first day went quite well I think, as far as first days are concerned. I am okay with where my desk is. Despite our numbers being down(us highschoolers that is), we still managed to chill and enjoy ourselves. As my fav teachers says, We are a "community". LOL. Dauber cracks me up. That being said, I still am not friends with him on Facebook. Hmm..I wonder why he hasn't accepted my friend request.

Oh, to all interested peoples, I am currently working on a new blog that will be Authored by yours truly(that would be ME for all the blondes out there) and my good friend Aaron. Here is a link to his personal blog, Nihil Versus, Omnia Licita . I really enjoy his blog. Tho, he does need to post more. I say that, realizing that him starting another blog with me prolly won't help that come true.

Anyways, I must be off. My alarm clock is set for 5:30 AM, and I must NOT sleep thru it. Toodles!

Just Another Bang-Your-Head-On-The-Wall Moment

Yes. It's that time of year again. School is beginning. Time for kids of all ages to subject themselves to 9 months of brain pain and number crunching. For me, it's my last year. ^#$%((@....not sure what to think of it. I tried to get into ASL classes at the college, but they are filled for the whole year. And summer? Forget it. So, my plans for foreign language, screwed! Which means that this school year is NOT off too a good start.

This morning I went into school for a minute to drop something off and saw where my desk was.....It could be worse, stuck between a quiet weirdo, and a cool, quiet person. Could be worse I guess.

You know whats irritating? When you buy an album, and then like 3 months later, the band releases a deluxe edition of the same album with new songs only on the deluxe edition. It's like they are just trying to mess with me!! Now, I want those two songs SOOO bad, but I'll feel stupid if I buy the deluxe edition JUST for those two songs!! Curse you label company.*shakes fist*

Sometimes....

Sometimes,

You just want to shoot yourself...........in the foot...

You want to scream at the world.....

You want it all to go away...

You want everyone just to shut up.....

You just can't take it anymore....

You just wonder if it's all worth it....

You just want it all to end...

You just wonder if there is someone out there....

Sometimes you just.....need.....

Dude, You're Such A Wangsta!

Yes! Weeks of microwave dinners are over! My mother, along with my two urchin siblings, is now home from a 4 week stay in Iowa. Just in time too. One more bowl of Ramen Noodles might have been the death of me.

In other news, it was "crazy hat" day at an event I help at and my only hat was a flat-billed cap. So I proudly tilted it back and to the side, and proceeded to walk with a swag towards Dustin. I believe the first words out of his mouth were, "Dude, your such a wangsta!" Now to anyone who does NOT know what that term means, it means, "Wanna-be-gansta". Wham-O! Wangsta!

don't ask why i took this photo in the bathroom....cuz i still don't know






Turns out, this drink that Alex is so eagerly chugging, costs less than 4 dollars! We pretty much considered that a steal.

What Else Is There?

blue is a color, but so is blood, blood is not just a color but a life source, do you find answers in doctors, or in the internet...even by my reckoning most people are wowed...but, i really just don't know what is going on, life is going by, and i'm sharing it with no one.... im treading water, in a pool where i can touch bottom....i'm sinking, but only while in outer space, then one can really reach his potential, to be shut up or shut down, don't let them put you down, it will come back around, just not around the corner, the shadowed corner that your hiding in, relax tho, the shadow proves there's sunshine, the sun's light exposes it all, but if you expose film it's ruined, you left my life in ruins, but, i am now ruined, with your help, we can make it......

What Am I? A Hobo Magnet?

....*creeper status*.....So yea, as of recently, I have taken to going on like 2 hour bikes rides in a place I call Hobo Land. It's an abandoned area behind a beach. There are trailers EVERYWHERE. Some inhabited, some not so much. Haha. Anyway, I was on my way out, when a random guy pulls up next to me in an old, beat up car, and proceeds to share with me some tips on the following:what skulls to find, what kind of bones are worth the most, how to clean them, and how much copper was worth when he was a kid. It was actually a nice thing. A lot of people do that and make a pretty penny too! But, anyhows,. I thanked him and continued on my way........haha...nice hobo...

Am I scared of old people? No. Am I scared of doing ANYTHING in front of people.....Yes. Pretty much. But, that being said, Sophie and I are planning on going to a, Seniors Center, or whatever you want to call it, and reading to some of them. No, I am nervous because I am  horrid, out-loud, reader. Granted, it prolly doesn't even matter because old people don't really care. Just as long as you are there and talk to them. All with a smile....

Hobo Land

Hobos scare me. They just do. I can't help it. So, when I was confronted by a hobo during my bike ride thru hobo land, I didn't stop pedaling. Not to mention the one that just stared at me from within it's hobo trailer.

Tell me if you think anything might be missing in this photo.....


Hmmm...how about a FLOOD?!? Haha. Stuff like this just makes me laugh.

One thing I did find while biking around was a very nice, semi-secluded spot right next to the lake. Very beautiful. Not to mention being in the sun does tend to help out ones tan.

Dustin now has a cell phone....*sigh*...yet another one of my friends has left me behind and is now one step closer to somewhere I'm not.

toodles.....

"We touch I feel a rush
We clutch it isn't much
But it's enough to make me wonder whats in store for us
It's lust, it's torturous 
You must be a sorceress 'cause you just
Did the impossible
Gained my trust don't play games it'll be dangerous"
 
I'm not sure how correct this is......but still.....

I Passed a Test I Have Already Taken

I am officially a soccer ref now. I can now get payed to ref soccer games. YAY!!

I have a badge now. It's official now. I did ref last year for the Del Norte Youth Soccer League, but my license or whatever you call it had expired, so I had to take a course and a test which I passed just barely. YAY!!

Oh, and when it comes to soccer this year, my father and I are coaching a U8 team. It's actually quite entertaining to coach. So much enthusiastic energy all over the field. Haha. They are just so funny to watch.

A weird thing happened to me at our church potluck today. I had several girls tell me I smelled good! And what's even weirder? I get that quite often actually. I get told mostly these two things, that I have pretty eyes and I smell good! All I can say is, for the first, "I was born with it", and for the second, well, "You can thank Old Spice Body wash for that"! lol

Thinking Over The Unthinkable

Some people don't deserve life. They make a conscious decision and, in my opinion humble opinion, forfeit their right to life. End of discussion.

Wow. Life is moving very fast right now.Summer has blown by. Well, I for starters, am now a stop at the DMV away from taking my Learners Permit test. Very excited about that.

I will be a senior this year. Scary and exciting at the same time.

I went to the Del Norte County Fair this year. First week of August I believe. Dinky is too much credit. Haha. It is sooooo small. I went and hung out all day till closing time with these hooligans here in the pic below.






These hooligans, starting from the bottom are Tara, Dustin, Sophie, and Lauren(is the one under Sophie lol).
 Besides the actual fair, I had an enjoyable time with my friends.


Oh, fyi, more pics will be posted from now on. I take a lot. Might as well use them for something.

Repeat

i was thinking
over thinking
cause there's just too many scenarios
to analayze
look in my eyes
cause you're my dream please come true

i was thinking
over thinking
about exactly how i'm not exactly him
i'll break my heart in two
more times than you could ever do
cause you're my dream please come true

cause i think way too much
on a one track mind
and you're so out of touch
cause i'm so far behind

i can't deny this anymore, the facts ignored all done before
and if there's one in this world,
you let me know you're not that girl

i was sinking
lower, sinking
cause i lost the things i held on to
they let me think a thought
a thought that i would know was not
of seeing my dream come true

i was thinking
over thinking
about how far i had let this go
one more guy/girl chiché
i know now you're just in the way
of me and my dream come true

cause i think way too much
on a one track mind
and you're so out of touch
cause i'm so far behind
i'm trying to make sense
out of all of this
while your fading scent
just slips through my grip

i can't deny this anymore, the facts ignored all done before
and if there's one in this world,
you let me know you're not that girl

don't touch the positive with the negative end
don't touch the positive with the negative end
cause after all of the sparks you're still alone in the dark
cause after all of the sparks you're left alone in the dark

and while i'm able, i think i'll label
experience with you as a mistake
and while i'm at it, i'll say i've had it
experience with you is a mistake

cause i think way too much
on a one track mind
and you're so out of touch
cause i'm so far behind
i'm trying to make sense
out of all of this

Winding Down To Start Up

Creation Northwest was AWESOME!!! Just not as awesome as last yer tho. Interestingly enough. I almost felt like a third wheel there. But, whatever. Skillet was just plain amazing. They re-did their set and it looked UBER EPIC!!!! I still had a good time with my friends. It was so nice to see them.

Oh, and for the record, don't try to get married while still married. It doesn't work.


My mother and my siblings are in Denver on the way to Iowa. As for my father and I, we are in Oroville, CA, on our way back to Crescent City. I can't WAIT to be back home.

I misses hers, She's as boot camp. Yea, she's just that awesome!

If you would please, pray for my friend Sterling, he was riding his bike in town, with no helmet, and he was hit by a car. He was taken to the hospital and is now at home. Just pray that there are no long-lasting, negative effects from this incident. It's a miracle that he is alive.

Picking Up Speed

Well, where to start?

July 4th. Spent the fireworks show on a boat with my family and Sophie. Yes, I did indeed have a birthday. OMGoodness. 17 years is a long time. Hopefully, I will survive lots more.

From July 5th-9th, I was at Fir Point High school Camp. That was pretty fun. Not the funnest ever, but it was fun because Jacob, Kenzie, and Sophie were there too!! So it was alright in the end.

Now, I  know I have said before about me being close to getting a permit, well, I'm serious this time. I started the drivers ed course online(to save time), and it is quite easy actually. I might have my permit by next Wednesday, the day we leave for Creation and then Montana. YAY!!!

I went to the river today with Sophie and her friends. Lots of fun. Even went rock jumping, tho I simply couldn't force myself to jump off the highest one. About 20 feet I think. Still had an enjoyable time.

Tomorrow will be a good time. Lauren is having her birthday party!! 16 years old I believe. Sophie will be there, nice thing. But, then on Saturday, Sophie is leaving for Sea Cadet Boot Camp in Reno....*sadface*..



Anyway, life goes on and time runs out.....

Happy 4th of July

May God not kill us all.......

Sunday, July 3, 2011

What do you call a birthday party, not on your birthday?

A PARTY!!!!!

As some of you may know, my birthday is on the fifth of July. But, because I am going to a highschool camp from the fifth to the ninth of July, we celebrated it today. Burgers and chicken were on the menu. Very tasty-THANKS MOM!!!

I did receive a blue m&m's t-shirt. That was cool. And from Malachi, who obviously stopped by the dollar store on the way over, some sidewalk chalk,bubbles, a sand pail and shovel, a squirt gun, and.....*drum roll*.... A JONAS BROTHERS BIRTHDAY CARD!!! It was obviously my fav present. Oh, and money from the Geisserts. A very thoughtful gift.

But, one downside was that, we had roughly two days to throw this party together, and so, because of that, we didn't have many activities planned. So, when groups of teens get together, what do they do?

They chill........that's right...for 3 hours we just sat around and chilled. Aside from grouping together in the hot sun for like a billion pictures by my dad, and watching me blow out some candles, we just sat around and talked.

Typical teens we are. Talking about......well, maybe I just wont say.There might be an adult reading this....

You know, it's kinda funny these days, but there is something I have noticed, at least where I am. I think you are more likely to get ratted out by a lurking adult than the teens you are hanging with. Just something to think about. It's not going to be one of your friends, no, it's going to be there parents, standing afar off who just "happens" to notice something, and then just happens to talk to your parents later.


It's NEVER a good thing when parents are talking in a little group afar off.

I've have said this before, and I'll say it again. It's IPPAC.

International Parent Plot Against Children


Our parents have joined together in a unified front against us. That's why there is slave labor*work with no payemnt*, and parents who abuse their parental rights. The list is ENDLESS!! They have also agreed to spy and report on each other's kids. Making it increasingly difficult to simply hang with your friends.

Mark My Words.

In other news, I saw Transformers 3 with Malachi and Alex. It was a very good action flick. Tho, it did go on a little long, almost three hours! There was good humor, not to dirty, no sex scenes, and the language was nto as much as the second. Oddly, enough, it seems like a lot of the language comes from his parents.

I give this movie a weak B+. Simply because of all the awesome butt-kicking robot action!

On a side note, I am a very,fortunate guy...and no, I do NOT like the jonas brothers....

So when life throws a curveball, what do you do?

You charge the mound and take out the pitcher!

So, in a shocking and irritating turn of events, I will not be going to Creation. I am very disappointed and uber bummed. The only silver lining I can see is that I will be able to purchase a lot more cd's now and STILL save money. We will be going to Montana to visit, but on the 22 of July and only for like 3 days. We will be able to attend Eric's wedding. That will be most enjoyable.But, just not the same as Creation.

I will not be able to see my friends or my wifey. Very disappointing.

I will be going to a Highschool camp July5-9. That will hopefully be fun.

There is an opportunity for a possible job that has come to my attention. Seems there is a jerky maker in a town just north of us, and the person who was distributing his jerky to Crescent City, doesn't want to do it anymore. The job would mean, once a week buying the product from maker, then selling it at stores in Crescent City, hopefully making a profit. Eventually to do this I will need my license, but my father has agreed, should we try this, that he would take me the first couple of times till I could drive.

She's still there, much to my surprise.....

What The Future Holds

Well, I can see I need to post more often, but when the your not motivated,well, your just not motivated.

Life has been moving on at a pretty rapid pace recently, for me anyway. I now only have year left in highschool. I am about to get a job(who doesn't say that). And now, after sorting through several different accounts of how to get a permit. So, hopefully I can get that done before the end of July. Family camp has come and gone. Fun as it was, I'm glad thats just once a year, otherwise my stomach just couldn't take it.

As for creation, I'm just not longer sure it's going to happen.An unfortunate circumstance threw off our plans and well, everything costs money.

Now that I am a senior, college is much closer than it has been. And, I don't want to go straight to college anymore. I want to work for a couple of years and maybe then look into college.

Samuel, fyi, I have met someone, and it's not a HB.....lol

Prayer

I am here, again, at my great grandma's side. She had a stroke while in the hospital recovering from ulcers. She is now unresponsive, and we know, this is probably her last week on this earth. Pray that it comes quickly and easy.

One of my best friends, Nathaniel Hemingway, has today fallen roughly 40 feet out of a tree and is now in the hospital with possibly a broken back or hip. Pray that he is not effected long term from this.

Just Pray.

Saturday, June 4, 2011

Don't make people with heavy accents mad, cuz then they sound funny when they talk.

Yes, so, we were stopped at a gas station. We park, open the doors, get out, and as I am walking towards the store, some guy walks out and starts cussing at me. And I mean, f bombs....

I said "what"? Unsure if he was talking to me.

According to him, we hit his car  twice with our doors. Now, how from inside the store from the opposite side of his car,he saw that we're not sure. And we never heard the cars collide. Anyway, he was not happy, and the woman travelling with him has her panties all in a wad about "informing the proper authorities"....lol.....They left soon after.

I am walking down the hallway carrying two watermelons in front of me when my little sister, god bless her, looks at me and says sweetly, "joshua, you look like you have big boobs"!!....lol.....what wonderful siblings I have.....

My grandma is doing better. Sorta. They found out that she had 7 ulcers in her body, and one of them, like, exploded, and caused bleeding in her. She's recovering in the hospital. Keep her in ur prayers.

I am done with school. I will be a senior next year. Kinda exciting.

BEACH PARTY!!

Nearing The End

At about 11:20am yesterday, my family picked me up from school, and we drove to Oroville Hospital to my great grandma's bedside. She was admitted to the hospital around 9am yesterday morning with severe bleeding. She was weak over the day, and stayed in the hospital last night. She will be 90 in December, but, really, we're are not sure if she will last that long.

 So, here I sit. At my grandma's computer. Posting on fb. Posting on here. Waiting.

Please pray for my great grandma. That if she goes, it will be quick and painless.

Peace and Freedom

  Peace and freedom to you on this Memorial Day. I hope all of you attended a Memorial's Day service to honor past and present members of the military. In honor of this day, here is a poem that was read at the service we attended.


                                                                FLANDERS FIELD
 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

So Close, So Stinkin Close

  In fact, I am close. To several things. Next week will be the arrival of two things I do really enjoy, Facebook, and the end of school!! YEA!!!! I cannot wait.Well, as my dad says, I can , I just don't want to. But, right now I am so tired. I was up to about 4 am last night, er, morning, with Malachi and Alex. yea, details not included. lol

  Creation is coming closer. I am starting to get chills when I think about it. I heard Skillet has upped their live show(hard to imagine) even more so. Oh, and Skillet's song Awake and Alive Remixed has been chosen for Transformers 3 soundtrack. Cool huh?

 I saw Thor. It was okay. Typical action flick. Kinda like Clash of The Titans. It had one good twist, but that was about it. Natalie Portman has been everywhere this year. Seems like every other movie cover of a new movie I see has her face on it. Geez.

To Dance? Yes, to dance!

 Yes, I went to the wedding reception/dance. Yes, I danced with said girl, among several others. It was quite fun. I did enjoy myself. But, nevertheless, I'm glad its only once a year.

  So, this is how it went down. Now, unlike previous years, this was not an official Sea Cadet Ball, but a wedding, with the reception having dancing in it. The idea being from the bride. So, we showed up at about 6(we being my family and I). They served food at about 6:30, and we sat down and ate. The group I hung out with was my date and I, Dustin and Tara, Sophia, Alex(his date was other places in between dances), and Lauren. Lauren and Sophia had no partner. Sophia's partner just stood her up and didn't show. She was pretty disappointed. So, besides dancing with our partners and others, us guys took turns dancing with her. Funny thing is tho, she has been dancing for like six years, and us guys, uh, not. So, we had a little trouble keeping up with her. She is really good.

 Like I said this was not an official dance, so the music was previously selected and they didn't play as many Waltz songs and stuff as previous times. There were a lot more dance songs, or country, and stuff that's kinda hard to do the foxxtrot to ya know. So....we freestyled. Made it up.

 And then the awesome happened. They turned off the lights, handed out glowsticks, and cranked out some serious electronic, dance beats. It was epic!!!! There were glow sticks flying everywhere, and we would get in a big bunch, and just jump!!! Some of the adults didn't like it as much. My family left, and I got to stay and clean afterwards. It ended at 10:00! I would leave with Dustin and Tara. Yes. A very good experience. Once a year. lol

Here is a video of the peoples i was with at the begining.

 SCHOOL IS ALMOST OVER!!!

TOODLES!!

English Please, English

  My teacher has this idea that he thinks it's funny to tell you what to do in a foreign languages. Crazy guy. And cuz he has travelled around the world, it's a different language every time. He gets a real crack out of it too. We are trying to break him of that. LoL.

 There is this girl in my classroom, Lauren is her name. She has taken to writing stories and using her fellow students as the characters. In which we are pretty sure she just acts out her inner, ummm, darkest, wishes-er-ideas.....idk. Anyway, they are a real hoot to read and I have been made the official narrator of these stories at lunch. Funny thing.

 The last dance practice is this Thursday, the dances I have learned being the Waltz, Electric Slide, Lindsay Shuffle, Virginia Reel, Swing, and Foxxtrot. God help me remember those. The dance its self is on Friday. Which is kinda sad, being that I wasted my last day on earth at a ball, seeing how the world is gonna end on Saturday. Or so at least that's what Harold Kamping says. LoL. Personally, I tend to agree with SCRIPTURE when it says, in Matthew 25:13, "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming." NKJV. But, who knows? I mean really? Who actually knows? Not you, or me, and definitely not Harold Kamping. You can take that to the bank!

Anyway, school is ALMOST OVER!!! I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!!!!

Busy Is My Middle Name

WoW. Well, for starters, I apologize about not posting in so long. I have been UBER busy with increased homework, dance lessons, basketball and whatever else our busy schedule throws our way. And trying to keep a steady workout schedule is quite difficult. I have merely been trying to survive the chaos until school ends June 3rd. Oh the joy!! : )

 As previously stated, I will be going to the ball, and dance lessons have begun as of just over two weeks ago. It has been an interesting experience, more fun than I expected, but still dreaded over. So far I have learned(or at least the ones i know the names of) the Electric Slide, Waltz, basic Swing, Foxtrot, and two others whose names I can't remember. I know they both involved two lines of peoples. One of them went to this form I think, two lines facing inward, alternating so that everyone was in between two people in the other line, and goes something like this: right-skip, step-behind, left-skip, step-behind,forward-step-skip, forward-step-skip, 180 degree turn, and 1-2 foot stomp. That's prolly the furthest thing from it but that's the best I can describe it.....*fail*....

 Anyhoo, at the very least Dustin is there, and he and I hang together. He and Tara are going, but, little detail here, they both like each other. So, that's good for them.

  My school will not be going to Virgina this year. Unfortunately, we started fundraising waay to late, so we had nowhere near the amount of money we needed. And, some of the parents were a little worried about the retaliation attacks coming from Bin Laden's supporters. And, if in fact we killed the real one, then there will definitely be at least an attempt at retaliation, that can be surety.

  I have seen a movie recently that I must talk about. Kings Speech. Very good. Only one scene damns the movie to an R rating, otherwise its a simply fantastic. Four grammys I believe. Wonderful. Absolutely fantastic. Incredible. UBER AWESOME DUDE!!!

  One last thing, want to get in shape? Want to firm up? Try P90X. It is killer! It is a must. My mom and I both do it(when we have time), trying our bloody hardest to keep in line with the schedule. It is absilutely wonderful. Great workouts. LUV IT!!

We have determined the Official color of Hatorade!

It's official. I am going to the dance with said girl. Not that I am entirely excited about this fact but, I am doing it more as a favor than anything else. I apologize for not posting more often, but life has been uber busy for me lately.Spring break has come and will be gone tomorrow. Our school received one week off plus, a school wide suspension on Monday. lol. During spring break, my family and I went down to Oroville to see my dad's family, namely my grandma, great grandma, and grandpa. All of whom who are one the down hill, great grandma worst of all. In fact, for the first time in my entire life, all 16 years of it.

My great grandma did not know who I was. I had to remind her of my very existence.Not a feeling I enjoy. It makes me feel very grim. Death does not look favorably upon any person. In the end, we're all screwed.

Oh, btw, not sure if I have told ya'll yet, but, we have determined that Hatorade is purple! Not red, because that's racist against Indians, not yellow because that's racist against Asians, not white because that's racist against whites, not black because that's racist against blacks, and not green because that's racist against aliens. Yes, the official color of Hatorade is purple!

Today I went with Malachi, Alex, Whitney, Kallen, and Lauren to see Soul Surfer in the theaters. It was pretty good. I am a guy tho, so quiet movies are not always my thing,BUT. I would recommend this movie to anyone of any age!! It was a extremely clean movie, with heavy christian morals and themes in the movie. The main character and family are all Christians and act accordingly. The movie is about Bethany Dillon, a teen surfer who lost an arm in a shark attack, and worked her way back to becoming one of the worlds best surfers. Based off true story. I would buy it even. It was very inspirational. Tho, being filmed in Hawaii, there are bikini clad women in most beach shots, so, Alex was not disappointed. LOL.

This here is a random video after church on Sunday.I am behind the camera. Alex has the Bible, Dillon is in white, and Kerry, well, is the only girl. Enjoy.

What Is My Personality?

In thanks to a  online Personality Quiz, and 41 questions, I can now clearly say what my personality is.(only slight sarcasm there) But, truth be told, I think it defines me quite well actually. But, I think that one can only know for sure based on what other people say about it. How they view him.That being said, I think I this defines me better now, than it did when most of ya'll were around me.

So, here is what it said...

Raja-Man's personality type: "Engaged Idealist"
Popular and sensitive, with outstanding people skills. Externally focused, with real concern for how others think and feel. Usually dislike being alone. They see everything from the human angle and dislike impersonal analysis. Very effective at managing people issues and leading group discussions. Interested in serving others and probably place the needs of others over their own needs.
Careers that could fit Raja-Man include:
Teachers, consultants, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, clergy, sales representatives, human resources, managers, events coordinators, politicians, diplomats, writers, actors, designers, homemakers, musicians, religious workers.








Tip: Place the mouse cursor over the bars for explanations of the terms.
Renowned persons with similar personality types:
  • Barack Obama, American president
  • Ben Affleck, actor
  • Ben Stiller, actor and comedian
  • Martin Luther King Jr., minister and civil rights activist
  • François Mitterrand, French president
  • Johnny Depp, actor
  • Matthew McConaughey, actor
  • Mikhail Gorbachev, last leader of Soviet Union
  • Petros "Pete" Sampras, tennis champion
  • Tommy Lee Jones, actor

Tho, I don't really like the fact that I have the same personality as Barak, someone who I irritates the snot right out of me, haha.

So, what do you think? You who know me well. Is that me in a summarized paragraph?


And yes, still not sure whether to go or not to the dance. Time is running out tho.

You can take the quiz here !

                                              lol. SAVE THE DROWNING MAN!

Well, I guess the only way to gain experience is to make mistakes.

Well, it's not the only way, but it sure seems to be the one I choose alot.

Running...Again

   Yes,I have started up running again. Three days a week and not minute longer. I don't like to run per-say, but I acknowledge the fact that it's good for me and I feel better when I do. So I run on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays(40 minutes today), and on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, I do P90x workouts for my core and a stretching workout thingy. It's kinda fun actually.

  I'm pretty sure I got no better than a B- on today's Chemistry test. Blah! Oh, but I did get my report card for the third quarter, and my percentage was 90.something percent. Not bad if I do say so myself. And, in an exciting turn of events, I will be going to a Newsboys concert in April with Kutless and Disciple opening for them. Suh-WEEEET!! It's going to be intense. I have seen all of them in concert and they are all awesome live! 

  So, a couple of days ago. They were having a used-stuff sale of sorts at my school in the gym, and they were selling dvd's for $2:50 a piece!! What a deal right? I know, so I bought Sahara, featuring Mathew MacConaughey, and Hitch starring Will Smith. I love both movies. That's why I bought them I think.....

  Anyway, I must go. Youth group starts in 7 minutes.


  Toodles!

Energy Drink Induced Hangover

Yes. I think it is possible to achieve a hangover if you O.D. on Mountain Dew, Rockstars(don't drink them very often, I don't), and chips. At least, my friends and I were able to achieve a state possibly comparable to a real hangover on Friday night,except for the fact that we could still remember the previous night's happenings. My friends being Alex, Sam, and Malachi from the previous post. Not to mention the headaches, bad-breath, stomachs that want to puke, and the inability to focus on any one thing...(or is that just us)?? Yea, we stayed up all night with three bags of chips, candy. popcorn, mountain dew and energy drinks. We watched some stupid Asian action flick that was on the hotel cable, and just talked about some random stuff....

Here is a video of us on Thursday morning. We are getting ready to go to the University. Listed in order of appearance: Malachi, Sam, and the Alex. I am behind the camera. Forgive us, this is like 6:30 in the morning.

Regional Student Convetion a.k.a.(a week off of school)

I leave tomorrow at 8:30 am on a six hour drive up to Newburg, Oregon to George Fox University for a ACE Regional Student Convention. I will be gone for 5 days, and will get back Saturday. There I will be competing in a basketball tournament, checkers, tournament, 400 meter relay with Malachi, Alex, and Jesse, and be submitting a short story into a short story competition.I also am on the PACE Bowl team, which is a team of four people who are quizzed on all subjects, all content, from final tests, grades 7th thruugh12th. Yea, that's a lot of stuff. Oh, and I forgot to mention, we have to answer before the other team from another school answers.Yea, it's going to be awesome!

But, in all that awesomesauce, there is a huge downer.You have to wear slacks, dress shirt tucked-in, and shiny shoes all the time. Oh, and, you had better be wearing a tie to the meals, otherwise, no food for you. Yea, but other than having to wear fancy-shmancy pants everyday, it should be uber fun.

The Next Three Days starring Russel Crowe(Gladiator, Robin Hood) is an extremely good movie. Great plot, pretty clean, and keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire movie. For reals!! I love Russel Crowe.

Lethal Jello

How's that for a blast from the past. I believe that was a joke that put Lethal Jello as the name of our praise band for the youth group at CBC.

So, I was looking at my blog and I realized, I have like NOOO pics on here. Well, I am just going to have to do that. Here they are..

This is from the left, Alex, Dillon, and Dustin. Dillon and Dustin are brothers.


Just a funny.


Just another funny.

See, my sister don't need no swimmin lessons, she can already walk on water!!

Dillon, Malachi, Alex, AND me all in the backseat of a car.


This is my little bro, John, eating cake from his fifth birthday party(im surprised he lasted that long)....


There, you have it. I put pictures on my blog. Now, I must go to school. What a drag.

Overdose

"AROUND EVERY CORNER IS THE LURE TO CONSUME.

A DESIRE TO BE SATISFIED.

UNFORTUNATELY NO HUMAN BEING HAS FOUND ANYTHING UNDER THE SUN THAT BRINGS SATISFACTION.

SO WE CONSUME MORE, AND MORE, AND MORE.

EVENTUALLY, WE OVERDOSE.

HOWEVER, THERE IS HOPE IF CHRISTIANITY IS OUR REHAB.

IN JESUS SATISFACTION CAN BE FOUND. GRACE, LOVE, PEACE, AND HOPE CAN BE FOUND...AND THERE IS ALWAYS MORE.

CONSUME MORE OF JESUS.

OVERDOSE."

Tsunami Warnings

8.9 That was the size of the earthquake that struck Japan early this morning. And, thanks to that, I have no school today. Right along with the rest of Del Norte County. Seems they're waiting for 7-14 foot waves to hit our shores. We are actually right in the spot where he except the biggest backlash to hit, southern Oregon. So....whatever.....

Oh, and on more thing, running with music, is a million times better hen running without. Now that I have my iPod, I was able to listen to music while running. It was so much easier... So anyway, the eggs are calling my name.....

Toodles!!!

Anger Management

"There are two kinds of anger. Explosive and implosive.There is the guy who screams at the cashier in the grocery store for a mistake. Then there is the cashier, who takes it all in, day after day, and then goes off and shoots seven people. You are the cashier."

Sleeping Wide Awake

I want an Ipad, but I don't want an Ipad. They're cool and all, but if I do any serious typing, I would just get a laptop.Anyway, if I had a spare 1000 bucks and a laptop already, I would totally buy one. No, scratch that. I would buy the Ipad2.

I am sick. I have a racking cough. I am not going to school tomorrow.(why am I not ecstatic over that, I'm not sure) It used to be I was almost euphoric over any possibility of missing school. Now, I almost wish I wasn't sick.....hmmm....they must be affecting....their brain washing techniques must be having a bigger affect on my brain than I thought......

Should your spouse balance you out, or be just like you? Interesting question.

A bunch of my friends got to go see Lecrae in Missoula, MT. I am soooo breaking the tenth commandment.

I am watching an India Jones movie marathon on USA channel. They totally disrespected the name of Indiana Jones with the fourth movie. Jones is historic, not futuristic.

You know what, the is lame. I am going to bed. Sleep. And hopefully feel better tomorrow. Jones, you can find the Lost Ark and fight the entire Nazi army all by lucky self.

What Is Maturity

What is it? What is maturity? How does one know if you are mature?

Well, first off, there are several types of maturity, for example: spiritual, physical, psychological, technological, financial, and even geological.

"Wow, that Sarah, she can be soooo immature some times!"

"I think Jeremy is very mature for his age."

....*scuttles away*.......*comes back with the life source(otherwise known as bananas)....Okay, so, here's how this got started....*backspaces*...no.....let me just say this, Someone called me immature, and I think they are wrong. I think they were basing their evaluation of me off the wrong ideas.

Now, I'm no different than most people who would be offended if someone else called them immature. Now, this person called me immature in the circumstance of me being loud and goofy with some of my friends. Which is exactly what I want my point to be.

What makes someone immature or mature? Why do we tend to think people that are quiet and reserved are more mature then people who are louder and talk more. And don't try to tell me otherwise. IT HAPPENS. Granted that is the case a lot of the time, but not all the time. I think we tend to label someone mature or immature based off how much they talk and how loud they are way too much of the time. Half the time people base their definition of maturity off a plethora of opinions from multiple sources.

Personally, I think most of us can agree that maturity has at least these qualities:
  • Responsible
  • Honors the ones in authority over him/her
  • Knows when is the time to talk, and when to umm...shut up
  • Can admit it when they are wrong
  • And not rub it in when they are right
  • Is not prideful(not to be mistaken with have pride/self-confidence)
And there are many more, but I think I covered some good ones.

See, just because someone is loud and a little goofy does not "show their immaturity" Same goes for "quiet and reserved people". Just as long as they know the correct times to be loud and goofy, and when to be serious.

Okay, I've said my two cents worth. Do you agree?

Licorice Slapping


Yes. We did it. I am spending the night at Dustin and Dillon's last night right? And his mom opens up a bag of red licorice(i hate black licorice), and we start eating it. Now, I am a huge fan of Skillet's podcast, and in one of their episodes, they have like a pain competition and they take turns slapping the inside of each others arms right where it bends(a surprisingly sensitive area i might add)with a strap or something. So, I thought, in a moment of foolishness, why don't we do it, only with strips of licorice. Well, seeing as how my friends are also foolish teenagers, they agree to do it. I slap you, you slap me, we slap him, he slaps us....WoW!...

This is a picture of Dillon's arm. If you look at it, you can see swollen, lines formed by the ridges on the licorice. And we all had that.....


Who knew licorice could hurt so much?!?!....I sure didn't....

And the next day was all about cold reminders.


Which is what I got several, painful times in our Youth Group day to the snow. Sad, I know. That fact that we had to set aside a day to drive to the snow, just reminds me how far I am from Montana. But, it was still the the bomb. We had several snowball fights which really ended up being me and Dillon verse everyone else. Not Good! So we drive up there, like caravan style or something. We drive about 45 minutes, then up the side of a mountain a good ways to even get to snow. Then, we set up on a wide spot, drop some people off to build a fire, attach the inner-tubes to the back of the trucks, load them up and floor it.

Let me tell you something, when you are at the bottom of a 7 person pile up, on one inner-tube, going 20 miles an hour, with your midsection dragging in the snow and ice, it hurts. It's also SOOOOO much fun!! Reminds me of the good ol' days....yea, I am only 16 and I made a good ol' days reference, SO WHAT!?!?!

Then you come back down the mountain, eat lunch, and then do it again, only colder.

Skillet Sadness

Farewell Benjamin Judah Kasica. We will miss you so.

Well, my night(and mood for that matter) is ruined now. Good feeling gone. I don't care if you think I'm too emotional. IDC!..... :(

Yes, Benjamin Judah Kasica is leaving his position as lead guitarist of the band Skillet.

"After 10 great years, guitarist Ben Kasica for Skillet has regrettably announced that he’s leaving the band.

In a message to Skillet fans, Kasica said on Monday that he will be focusing on other projects.

The Christian rock band recently got back from touring Australia, New Zealand and Japan. They were sad to announce Kasica’s departure.

Lead singer John Cooper wrote, “I always knew the time would come for Ben to leave and pursue other dreams, and now it is here. We are a family and we are going to miss him.”

Cooper added that working with Kasica, whose full name is Benjamin Judah Kasica, allowed him to watch the guitarist transform “from the kid who was nervous to play a guitar solo, to the rocker who now plays a solo...with his teeth!”

Kasica began playing for Skillet shortly after turning 16 years old. He shared that he basically grew up on the road, traveling to “loads of places” and drinking way too much coffee.

In a message to his fans he stated, “I had no idea how long the ride would last but have enjoyed it immensely and been thankful to God for everything I've been a part of.”

His plans for the future will be geared towards building his other companies, producing and developing artists at Skies Fall Studios, designing for LifeLoveMusic Clothing as well as “look[ing] forward very much to being home and catching up on churchlife, family and friends.”

Kasica added his thanks to his band members for encouraging him and suffering along with him while on the road.

“I want to thank John and Korey for the opportunity of a lifetime. They've been encouraging, compassionate, long-suffering with me and it's been what's kept me going on all these years. I'm grateful for their years of input in my spiritual, personal and business life.”

He added, “They're amazing, inspiring hardworking people that I have the utmost respect for. I wish them the absolute best in their future in and outside the band.”

The 26-year-old artist concluded his message by saying, “I want to thank you panheads for 10 years of incredible support. You've been encouraging over the years and made touring an amazing experience. You are the absolute best fans ever.”

While Skillet’s Wikipedia page already shows an update today with Kasica as a "former" lead guitarist, there is no word yet as to who will be the next guitarist for the band. They are set to kick off on their Avalanche Tour on March 1."

Fleas and The Four Day Weekend

I hate fleas. Or really, all bugs in general. Any insect is no friend to me. Except ladybugs, those cute little buggers are ok I guess. But other than that, I have a passionate distaste for any and all insects. They are the bane of my existence. Crawling. Biting. Flying. Eeeewwww. Death to them all. Yes, I know our ecosystem would collapse if all insects died......but still.....

That for one of many reasons is why I like the state of Montana. It's cold. Cold kills bugs. I stay happy. Fits me perfect.

And on the subject of fleas, one of our cats was infected with fleas. I use the past tense verb was because my mother and I spent the better part of an hour and a half washing with flea shampoo and picking out fleas driven out by it by hand. Trying to pick fleas off a thrashing, soaked, and unhappy cat is NOT an easy job. Not easy. Had you ever heard a cat in serious distress or pain screech. It gave me the shivers. Creepy.

Here it is. Happens every year. The first mention of Creation! Yes, I am officially signed up for Creation. Oooooohhhh...... good vibes....

Some new movies I want to see that are coming soon:

Unknown (Liam Nelson)
The Eagle (Channing tatum)
The Adjustment Bureau (Matt Damon).
And last but not least...
Hops ( a story about the bunny who didn't want the job)


I LOVE LONG HOLIDAYS!!!!

I Am Free

Okay, only partly. I decided to leave six brackets on my six front, bottom teeth and just take the top off. So now I have me top retainer in my mouth. Which is nice compared to braces, but one side effect of it is that,for the first couple days, you talk with a lisp. Sho now I talk like thish. And it shtinkss. And my friendss make fun of me. Meanies.

So, tonight at youth group we went on a pizza scavenger hunt where teams of teens go out to random peoples houses and ask them for something(anything) to put on your pizzas, then rush bakc and cook them and you have to eat them.A piece of advice, don't mix chocolate and cheese.Nasty stuff.Well.............

p.s. if u want to see owl city's new music video check out my other blog....

I Have A Dilemma

So, as I type this I am sitting in my grandma's kitchen leaching off her internet in oroville, California. Today Is the day for my final appointment for my braces. In other words, I am supposed to get them off today, six months ahead of schedule. My teeth look great, except for one little detail.

See, about four weeks ago, one of the brackets that they glue on your teeth to hold the wire broke off. Not a big deal right? Since all the rest are still on. But, the tooth now bracketless, is one of my four front bottom row teeth. And for four weeks, it has slowly moved out of it's position. Not a whole bunch, but enough. So, here is my dilemma. Do I go ahead with the removal of my braces, or do I have them put another bracket on the tooth and put it back in position. Delaying the relief of getting my braces off. Which I can tell my dentist to do so, because I am a paying customer and for the price we are paying, he'd better be flexible. Consumers control producers, not the other way around.

Oh, the choices....


I LOVE OREOS!!!!

Super Bowl Fail

Except for the actual football part, this year's super bowl was a bust. The lady, whose name I will not mention here, who was chosen to sing our national anthem butchered it so bad in an attempt to make it stylish. And instead of just singing straight, she made it horrible. And the halftime show, don't even get me started. Granted the light display setup was very cool, and the Black Eyed Peas did sing their good songs, but they didn't sound good singing them, and their female vocalist is not a good live singer. That much I now know.


Not to mention, there were seats at the stadium that were deemed unsafe due to the weather conditions. What? Yea, turns out, in Dallas, Texas,(let me be clear, Dallas Texas, you know, way down south?) just days before the Super Bowl, Dallas got six inches of snow. Six!....Go figure huh? Must be all that "global warming" kicking in.....lol


So, other than all that, it was a very good show.

Until Next Year......

Super Bowl Sunday

Here it is. The number 1 watched television broadcast of anything ever. Don't believe me? Last year, 106.5 million people watched the New Orleans Saints play the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl. Surpassing the previous and long standing record set by the 1983 M.A.S.H finale of 105.97 million. That's a lot of people.

One little interesting note, there have been four men that can say they have been to every single Super Bowl. After this year only three will be able to boast it. One of them is hospitalized and will not be able to continue his streak. Bummer dude!

This year's Super Bowl features the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I will be rooting for the Green Bay Packers.

Who will you be rooting for?

Algebra 2 Tamed

But only temporarily. I have survived yet another Algebra 2 test of my mental toughness and endurance. Not without lots of brain pain of course, but I made it. Barely.!

So, if a teacher says don't do something, it really means just don't get caught right? I mean it's better to ask permission that forgiveness on occasion right?? Okay, maybe that's not the best idea ever, but hey, doesn't mean we can't entertain it!

So, nothing exciting has been going on. Vinny and Chelsea are pretty much back together(when you are constantly holding hands under the table,dragging on each other, its kinda obvious). Dillon is still obsessed with a girl*who I will leave unnamed* who lives in TEXAS for Pete's sake. I keep telling that guy to get a life.

My foot is completely healed from the stepping on a nail deal. I have become a series of exercises that, hopefully, will allow me to dunk on a regulation sized hoop in the future. A very lofty goal I know, but still, a achievable one I think.

I am watching the tv show Charm City Cakes, and they delivered a cake that looks like a knight in armor to a place called Medieval Times. They are dressed up in medieval clothes and stuff. Kinda makes me wanna be a knight. Tho, I think I would rather be a Duke instead.

Which bring up the question, what medieval time role would you like to be? Duke? Duchess? King? Queen? Cardinal? Princess? Prince? Executioner maybe?

Zombieland Rule # 6-SKILLET: Big. Cast Iron. In the event of a zombie invasion in your home and you don't have your gun in your hand, grab one of these. It will get the job done if wielded correctly. And, because it doubles as a cooking dish, cook your self an omelet afterward. Try cooking it in bacon grease.

Goodbye 2nd Semester

Two down. Two to go. And, for the first time ever, I have made the Honor Roll two quarters in a row. It's only a minor detail that this is the first year ever I've had a chance to be in a Honor Roll....inconsequential fact....

Is it me, or does Stacy(who I just happen to sit next to) go to sleep every day trying to think of new ways to be annoying and cynical. She is by wide majority, the gossip girl of the school. And then she tells you to be quiet, while herself laughing the loudest and making sure everyone can hear her. People like that, ya know, I just wanna *@&#^&* them right in the kisser.....okay, maybe just give'm a piece of my mind......don't even get me started.....lol.....(such a overused and often empty threat)...

So, this past weekend was very busy for sports. The laughable Pro Bowl, the first rematch of the Lakers and Celtics since the Finals, and the AWESOME X-Games were all on.HMMMM. Choices, choices, choices.

Shaun White KILLED it again in the X-Games Men's Super Pipe Snowboard Competition. That makes 4 straight gold metals. He really is the flying tomato.

Pants On The Ground!

"Pants on the ground, pants on the ground. Ya lookin like a fool with ya pants on the ground!"

Yes, I finally saw the video of 62 General Larry Platt singing, on American Idol, "Pants On The Ground". I am officially a fan!!!

So, I decided to put it on here for ya'll to enjoy.





I apologize. I must retract Zombie rules 2 and 3. Zombieland rule 3 is Beware of Bathrooms, and 4 is Seatbelts.

This is the actual rule # 2.

Zombieland rule # 2: DOUBLE TAP. If you're not sure about something being dead. MAKE SURE. A second shot thru the head never hurts anybody.

Jelly-FIlled Powderd Donuts!

Are devilishly good. Which means, I should not eat them. Because if I do, I'll want more than one. Same goes for glazed, donut-holes. Only thing is, some guy whose name I don't know, brought over a basket full of bread and, yep you guessed it, jelly-filled donuts, and glazed, donut-holes. Drat!!.......well, we decided to give some away, but the rest of them, some body's going to have to eat them. I guess I'll take one for the team. OH, the pain.....*groans emphatically*...

SO, at school, it has slowly turned out into an all-out war between the rows as paper bullets("hornets" if your Dillon) fill the air behind the teacher's backs. Of course, at the end of the day, Mr. Olson has confiscated several rubber bands(only to see the tomorrow brings more to school). He calls them contraband. I say its perfectly legal...

anyway....yet another of my friends is getting married...OMGOODNESS!!!..AM I THE ONLY ONE NOT GETTING MARRIED!!!???

Pregnant men?

Actually, it's Couvade Syndrome.Otherwise known as Sympathetic Pregnancy.Turns out men can get pregnant, or at least think they can. Turns out some men, who's wives are pregnant, can develop some of the same side effects of his wife like extreme cravings or mood swings. And then their mind turns on them, telling them that they have what are now called, "phantom swollen bellies",. They get bloated stomachs. Their mind in fact tells them is trying to convince them that they are carrying a child. This was first discovered by Hippocrates around 300 BC. Some men can even feel pains that rival the labor pains of his wife. And all these symptoms usually start and end the same time their wife's does. Some men have even gone to the doctor who couldn't give a physical explanation. Weird huh?

Don't believe me, here's a link http://health.howstuffworks.com/pregnancy-and-parenting/pregnancy/issues/sympathy-pregnancy.htm


One should always wear boots when working around nails. I didn't and then payed the price by stepping on a nice, sized nail and putting a hole in my foot. Your thinking "fail" right? Well, as my friend Dillon and I were thinking, actually, this will inevitably end up with me getting a new pair of shoes(now that they have a hole in them),. So, I failed so hard that something good came out of it, a new pair of shoes!! It's Failtacular!!

ZombieLand Rule # 2: Beware of Bathrooms!
It seems that when your at your most vulnerable, zombies can just smell it.Always check a bathroom*with a loaded gun or lethal weapon* before entering.

The Zombies Ate All My Smarties!!!

And while they were at it, most of my brain. At least, that's what I told my teacher. She didn't buy it. Darn.

I don't know how many of you have seen the movie ZombieLand. I think it's absolutely hilarious. Tho, it does have it's side effects because I am still mortally afraid of all things zombified and still try to avoid zombie movies in general. But anyhoo, in the movie, the main character has about as many phobias as a centipede has legs. So, in order to help himself survive, he creates, as he goes along, a list of rules. Zombieland rules.

So, I will be posting one Zombie-rule from the movie on every post until I have put them all on here. Now the reason I am doing this is very simple, Zombie Apocalypse. Besides what people say, I think this is a very real and possible end for mankind while on this earth. Considering all crazy things scientists are experimenting with these days, all it takes is one accidental infection and BOOM!!!.....Zombie Apocalypse!

ZombieLand rule # 1: CARDIO

Zombies live very active lifestyles, so should you. The ability to outrun zombies can help you avoid zombies in the future.


P.S.: look at the poll please

Confused as to why I am sick, and sick of being confused.

Yea, it's real. Unlike Ibuprofen, which is supposed to help!! Go figure.Doesn't help squat.

So, I saw the movie Knight and Day starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. I think it's a pretty good movie. They tried to keep the mood light despite lost of action throughout. It had some pretty funny parts, and it was extremely clean. Totally recommend it.

I am very glad that today is Friday. I needed a Friday right about now.

Well, I got it. Finally. It's SOOOOO cool.

We are having a surprise b-day party for Dillon tomorrow. Hopefully he doesn't find out and all goes well(and i feel better by then).

Since the Red video doesn't work now. I got one equally as beautiful, and maybe a little easier to relate to. I encourage everyone to listen to it!

It's by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and called, Your Gaurdian Angel.

Back To School....again.

So, first day back after Christmas break went pretty well. A little more loud and rowdy then usual, with everybody showing off their 'cool' Christmas presents, such as Tyler's new flip-camcorder, and Vinny's 4th gen Ipod touch(lucky son of a gun, I have to pay for mine). Which, BTW, is another thing I don't get, I mean, you go flaunting your stuff round school, and you don't expect someone to think, 'hmmm, now that would be nice to have", and maybe jack it?! I mean, seriously, you are simply reaping what you sow. Personally, I try not to do that, it never really brings about any good......ever...

Good side note, I am now helping the 6th,7th,and 8th grade boys basketball team. That's been fun.

Oh, before I forget, It's that thing about coming back to school, I want to, cuz, like, I get bored really fast. Like, a month into summer, after the euphoria of no school has worn off, I'm like, "umm......is time for school yet?". But, I really, when I say that, I really just want to see my friends again and stuff. I do not, I repeat, I do NOT actually miss the studying and writing and brain pain stuff. Only the people. Only the people.
