So this is what happened in the past 2 weeks
Wednesday. 7.16.08 8:24 pm
To elaborate on the few things I mentioned in my previous post....

The tricky thing about jump rope is that an entire year's worth of work is condensed into one minute and fifteen seconds on the floor where you can either perform perfectly or walk off pissed. One minute and fifteen seconds that can make or break everything you worked toward the entire year...and as it turned out, it just wasn't my year.

But I think I'm ok with that. Because now I know what I have to do differently. It wasn't a completely abysmal competition...my teammates voted me the recipient of the Coach Hassler Award, very cool. I almost broke my goal of 180 in 30 second speed...and I got to see all my friends from around the country again. Good times at Magic Kingdom till 2 in the morning.

Camp was ridiculously tiring...I had a fever for the first 3 days, and we were scheduled from 7 in the morning till 11 at night every day. It was soooo draining, but by the end it had grown on me and now I actually miss it.

I did orientation for the UW on the 14-15 . It actually got me really excited! Probably because for the first time I really feel like I have a sense of how everything works. For the first quarter I'm registered for Intro to Psychology, Intro to Communications II, Intro to Logic, and the default General Studies 199 class. A lot of introductions. So in total I'm taking 17 credits, which I really hope isn't a stupid decision for my first quarter but I'll make it work.

So I'm just rambling off thoughts here, and now I have to get ready to go frolick on the beach with my girlfriend . Fare thee well, Nutang, I shall be back soon. Muffy over and out!

Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Alas, I do not in feel in the mood to blog but I feel I should keep in touch with everyone.

In summary:
Nationals sucked
Camp was amazing
I register for classes in a few days
Worlds will be the time of my life, whether or not there is ass-kicking

Perhaps within the next few days I'll have it in me to post an entry...until then, Nutang, fare thee well.

NATIONALS!

Brb in seven days! I'm off to Nationals tomorrow. I'm nervous, excited, apprehensive, anxious, hopeful...the whole lot of emotions. Wish me luck . Hopefully I'll have internet access somewhere in Disneyworld, because I'm brining my laptop. So long, Nutang.

MUFFY OVER AND OUT!

The thing that drives us
Monday. 6.23.08 12:57 am
I seem to always get haircuts before tournaments...I'd say it's worked out pretty well so far. Here goes another one:
Ahh yes, the quality of cell phone pictures. Hopefully the extra weight off my head will make me jump higher . In reality a haircut was probably a good idea because Florida during this time of year (or during any time of the year, really) is incredibly muggy and, of course, burning hot.


Anyhow, the jump rope documentary I mentioned last post has renewed my passion for the sport...too bad it had to be this close to Nationals . I killed myself doing a workout today. I don't really know what I do, I just know that if I'm not exhausted I haven't done my job. If 30 pushups sounds hard at that point, I make it 50. Of course my face is redder then Santa Claus by then, but it feels so good to just DO IT. Push through.

This year has been amazing...and I know next year is going to kick even more ass, and so will I, I promise

You haven't heard about jump rope for a while
Sunday. 6.22.08 1:32 am
My old coach sent me a graduation present . It was really special to me, because a part of me misses those days...she had a nice card, a traveler's guide to South Africa, and she even ordered me a copy of the Jump! documentary. *sigh*

I watched the documentary, and my girlfriend was laughing at me the whole time because apparently, throughout most of the movie, I was sitting there with a smile across my face. I'm sorry, I just got really excited that somebody finally made a good piece of media about my sport. No Disney, no stupid Myspace videos...and espeically none of that cursed Corbin Bleu. It had the people I knew and respected, the REALLY good ones that I actually admire in the jump rope community. It was awesome. Some of the stuff on there was a little outdated (they started filming in 2005), but I was elated nontheless

Speaking of jump rope, I leave for Nationals in 3 days...and the nerves are starting to set in. Along with the competition diet *bleh*. Why do I alway feel so unprepared? As it stands, there is a strong possibility of me making it to Finals in 6 events. Sweet

Muffy over and out!

Insomnia strikes again
Friday. 6.20.08 2:02 am
I just discovered that The Format, one of the few bands I have ever desired to see in concert, are on hiatus indefinitely. My dreams are crushed. I even made up a piano arrangement for their damn song! What the EFF...

"Why are you so pathetic, Muffy?" Shut up. The next thing you should be wondering is "Muffy, why are you up at 2 in the morning?" Ladies and gentlemen, we've already gone over this, I'm an insomniac, plain an simple. No matter how much turkey I eat (the melatonin puts you to sleep), I cannot drift away to lalaland. It's impossible.

Apparently my parents were oblivious of my intentions to continue jump rope through college. So my dad gets on my case today, as if it were his problem anymore...remember, you're not paying for it, so shut up and get out of my business. I suppose this has been a good reminder though, to keep looking for ways of bringing in money, whether it be through work on campus or through scholarships. I'm really hoping this Resident Adviser position works out for me next year. It completely covers room and board, and gives me the Gold level food package, which is even more than I currently have ordered. Oooh snaps, that saves $10,000 a year...*drools*

I should probably get some sleep, seeing as how Nationals is in less than a week and I need to be in tip-top shape. Muffy over and out!

P.S. Is it just me or does the white text against the black background make your eyes hurt? I should think to change this in future latyouts...

Prepare to be amazed. So what if the ending is wierd, and the "extended scene" is purely ridiculous? For an amateur animator, this is some incredible work:

If you can't tell, this guy had a fetish for lesbian lovers. I know this because I do my research (hey, was I the only one going "why are they all over each other??" at the end?) It's ok though, the action sequences made up for the awkward ending, PLUS there were plenty of Matrix references to keep Muffy verrrr happy Personally, I would've enjoyed it more if Samus had kept the suit on longer, but this Monty Oum guy clearly had other things on his mind *sigh*.



Just my luck, I bomb my last Physics test and only NOW am I finding out, 2 weeks after school is over. As it stands, I have a C- in the class...and I have my fingers very firmly crossed that that grade is with all the other missing assigments I have. Shit. I'm not that bad of a student, I swear. I have straight A's across the board as far as other classes go, but this one is a joke. If anything kills Senior year, it's getting the motivation to just finish your shit. Having a terrible teacher doesn't help any, but alas there can be no excuses for my failure. I'm hoping that the UW doesn't withdraw their offer of enrollment because of this little screwup...I'm trying to remain optimistic. I've heard worse horror stories than this, I think I will be able to fly in undetected.

Oh, and people need to stop recommending their own frickin entries.

GRR. I was just finishing my entry when Internet Explorer suddenly experienced an error, closed, and restarted before I could say "omfg."

ANYWAYS. What I was going to say before IE rudely interrupted me....I got my first pair of Chucks yesterday . It was an out-of-character decision for me, but I was bored and ready to try something new. I've always been one to jump on the bandwagon a little late. It'll be a bit before I get used to the flat sole, but I like 'em .

My current musical obsession is on the left. I listened to the song all the way back from Lake Chelan, and it is a beautiful thing. There hasn't been another band, aside from Motion City, that I have ever wanted to see in concert...but the music these guys make runs off pure energy, and I love the feeling. [For some reason the clip only plays part of the song, to hear the whole thing click on box]

Lately I've been a little bit apprehensive about who I'm becoming. I broke out of my shell this year, and for that I am sooo thankful...but in a way it worries me. I'm less apt to take crap from people, but sometimes I feel like I don't know where the line is. Am I standing up for myself or am I overreacting and just being an asshole? The same goes for modesty. Am I displaying my talents or just being an arrogant showoff? I guess my identity isn't whole yet, which is something college can hopefully fix.

Shoot, it's sunny and I'm holed up in my room. On the computer, as always. I need to go jump rope or something, get out in the sun a little. Good day Nutang, Muffy over and out!
