Lethargy
Monday. 1.28.08 12:47 pm
So I made the U.S. National Team. I should be more excited, but I'm not only because I know things could've gone better.

The crowd loved my Individual Freestyle, and our double dutch freestyle won the Senior Open division. Our double dutch pairs freestyle tied for second in the Senior Open division, and I got to see a lot of friends from around the country. Those are the things that make me happy.

At first I was going to rant about all the things that went wrong and all the things that pissed me off about the whole commitment to Worlds, but in a decision that was so contrary to my character, I decided not to. It's done. It's over with. I spent a half hour typing out an angry entry but decided to right click, select all, and delete.

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.
Goodbye

Adios everyone, I'm going to be leaving for practice in a little while and staying up in Kirkland at my coach's house for the night. I leave for Texas at 4 tomorrow morning and I don't think I'll be back until....Sunday? So until then....

I am NOT a fraud!

Life has been crazy lately. I hope after January things will slow down...between all this jump rope and school work I never get to see anyone anymore. I just miss being with people. Bleh.

Interesting. My Spanish teacher thought I used an online translator to cheat my way through an essay. I went to talk to her during lunch, whereupon she decided to put my true skills to the test. "Ok write an introductory paragraph on your own." So I wrote one, all the while thinking "this is going to be the most kick ass introduction you have ever read". I gave up and handed it to her, trying to keep the signs of my anger from flitting across my face. She liked it. So the whole ordeal was either:
1.) a big compliment. "It was so good I thought you were cheating."
OR
2.) a big insult. "This is way above your intellectual level."

I'll let it slide...this time...




I was at Brittany's house today and she found a bunch of Milky Way candy bars in her gymnastics bag....it was the worst moment of my life because I couldn't eat them. But neither could she, because in support of my endeavour she has decided to take up the jump rope diet with me Bwahaha

The meaning of today
Monday. 1.14.08 5:40 pm
Today marks the start of my competition diet.

I was sort of on a diet before, but this is fer realz. Yesterday my coach had a big party at her big house to celebrate our last hours of freedom before we begin the competition health plan. Needless to say, I consumed six slices of pizza, a root beer, and several cinnamon apple slices before the luxury could be stolen from me.

Today also has a special significance....sufficeth to say, the mystery of kissing in the rain has been revealed to me, though I'm sure no one else has done it in a jump rope.

New Template
Sunday. 1.13.08 12:29 pm
The flurry of layout-changing (mostly from Kuri and Nuttz) has inspired me to create a masterpiece of my own...so here you have it. It looks fairly spiffy in Internet Explorer, but I don't have Firefox to check if it's compatible with that browser.

Credits:
  • Credit for the background goes to some website I forgot

  • Credit for the "add me as a friend" and "send a note" javascript functions in my profile goes to invisible, who inadvertantly helped me (because I stole them from her site)

  • Everything else: me

This is truly a landmark moment in history. For once, my template is NOT Matrix-related! Everyone rejoice as you tour this layout, which I'm having difficulty naming....

Vote for Pedro
Saturday. 1.12.08 4:51 am
Maybe I should add a fifth resolution to my list: to stop getting pissed off over the little things. I just do it too much. The way I see it, if you can see yourself looking back on your anger and think "why the hell was I mad" then you have no reason to be. So there.

I skipped sixth period today. I know, I'm so bad ass. Honestly, we do nothing in Physics anyway...the only potential risk lies with my parents. If I've done my calculations correctly, and I think I have, my teacher will not take attendance and I will slip under the radar without any repercussions. Besides, even if I am discovered I can make up some excuse. The worst part is that it was so fun I might be tempted to do it again. Me and a bunch of other guys went to Jacob's house to play pool, which may sound extraordinarily ordinary, but it was HILARIOUS. There's this kid named Carlos. Let me tell you about Carlos.



Now imagine a more spastic version of Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite, and you have Carlos. Really, I don't think I've laughed that long in a verrrrry long time.

In other news, America is stupid. This just in, hot off the press:
"Britney [Spears] was also spotted picking flowers from some nearby grass."

I kid you not. That is actually what ET (Entertainment Tonight) reported during a schpeal about their latest Britney sightings, as though she were some rare type of sasquatch seen running through the wilderness. NOT that fascinating, and very fake.

Shorts in the snow
Wednesday. 1.8.08 10:00 pm
The epic tale of my day begins at 2 in the morning. I turned off my computer after several hours of aimless internet browsing, only to discover that my window seemed to be letting in an unusual amount of light for that time of the morning (not that I know what usual is for 2AM). Lo and behold, snow! And lots of it. I promptly texted Brittany because I know she loves snow , then settled into bed, dreaming of the school-less day I would surely have in a few more hours.

WRONG


Not even a two hour delay, either...out of spite for the district I decided to protest through passive means. I wore shorts to school. That's right school district, eat my shorts! It was a sacrifice I had to make for the sake of my fellow peers...either stand idely by and watch them trample on our right to a snow day, or walk 40 miles in shorts through snow drifts and arctic winds. The choice was simple, and I made it. I have no regrets, though I doubt the frostbitten hairs on my legs will ever grow back.

My my, I'm feeling feisty tonight

On a more serious note, I leave for Texas in a week and a half, and trials are only two weeks away. I'm getting a wee bit nervous, seeing as how this could decide whether or not I make Team USA. Damn. I have faith in my team though, we've worked our asses off and come this far, there's no way we're going back home empty-handed.

Just fucking do it
Monday. 1.7.08 1:50 am
I don't believe I ever made a new years post. Normally I wouldn't bother backtracking to cover the usual talk of resolutions and crazy parties. But the day of new years this strange sensation came over me. I have no idea how to explain it. It's one of those things you just know deep down in your gut. I know that this year is going to kick ass. Let me tell you why.

I've changed the way I live. I have this new philosophy that I'm trying to live by. I like to call it the "just fucking do it" philosophy. No complaining, no bull shit. Just fucking do it. At the beginning of December I learned a valuable lesson in Mason, Ohio, while attending a jump rope workshop. Complaining yields no rewards, it means that you either lack the will to persevere or you are too lazy to fix your own problems. I decided I wanted nothing to do with either. Hence, the "just fucking do it" philosophy was born. Since then, it has undergone several renovations, the lastest regarding goals. If I say "I want to beat Jesse at single rope freestyle this year," I can't just want to do it. I have to work to do it.

My new years resolutions are as follows:
  • Beat Jesse at single rope freestyle

  • Get more involved in setting up my future. Colleges, scholarships, a job, etc.

  • Build a better relationship with my family.

With the help of my "just fucking do it" philosphy, I feel all of my resolutions will come to fruition.

P.s It just occured to me that I can never take short showers. I remember distinctly telling myself "ok only five minutes." Fifteen minutes later I'm drying myself off and I have no recollection of how the hell time passed so fast. Therefore, I add a fourth resolution: take shorter showers.

Good day!
