As expected...the evils of soreness have struck . The best part is, I have a 2 and a half hour practice tomorrow, and then gymnastics the day after that! Super! . Lol I'm still looking forward to it nonetheless, because I'm stupid like that .


In other news, I redid my layout a little bit, after deciding that the Spiderman-lookalike background (according to Kuri's definition ) didn't quite go so well with the site. Sooo I made a new background and banner, and it all turned out just groovy in the end ( ). You likey?

Ah...what am I gonna do. Maturity's sneaking up on me, and I don't wanna grow uppp. But at the same time, responsibility and independence feels kinda good right now. And friends? You need em. But sometimes you get thrown into situations that make them hard to keep...I haven't given up on anybody yet, but some people seem to think otherwise. Meh. Life's a roller coaster, right?



Oh crap.

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.
Hotdogs...and not the kind you can eat!
Saturday. 9.9.06 10:10 pm
I'm pretty confident that my whole self is gonna be sore tomorrow . Today there was a workshop for Hotdog USA, where the A-group teaches the B and C kids...and I thought I had to get there early at like 9 so that we could go over policy and structure and all that good stuff...but it ended up being basically just another practice . That's a good thing though...I got to learn a few things while I was at it . Glen (the gymnastics teacher) volunteered to stop by, and so he helped spot us with some acrobatic stuffs. I tried a front tuck on the gym floor without his help...lol well needless to say I have some work to do. My excuse: I've only done it once, and that was on the springy floor @ gymnastics .

Real Hotdog practices officially start Monday Gahh I'm so excited...it's gonna be a little intimidating and hard at first, but I think I can fit in. Amy (the coach) was giving us a little lecture today about qualifying for Worlds and all that stuff...and I was introduced to a mentality that I was really unfamiliar with: they're there to win. The kids even compete amongst each other to try and get the better partners and stuff...I mean I'm all for a competitive attitude....but yeesh. That's a a lot different than the philosophy I was used to on my own team...we just sorta had fun. Well, anyways, the warmup for Monday is going to be:

--3 minute speed w/ heavy rope
--3 minute speed w/ speed rope
--100 double unders w/ heavy rope

Lol...yikes. Well, at least I'll be whipping into shape pretty fast

Woah. I never imagined my saying this in all my academic career...but I'm actually looking forward to this school year. The dread of education has somewhat lessened of late...partially because of awesome teachers and also I think because I've drifted towards striving for success as compared to being forced into it (via the parents).

Well, the Spanish test today was a lot easier than I expected. It's to determine whether or not you stay in the 2nd year class...but I think I did pretty good on it. Everything's so boring though...we're not really doing anything in any of my classes yet. It's all just busy work or getting familiarized with the teaching styles and whatnot. I discovered in math that there are quite a few seniors, and that suddenly I'm not the stupid kid anymore . That Internet Academy course I took over the summer helped a ton...I was browsing the book and all the chapters I had done over the summer, except for the Trig stuff. Mmm not looking forward to taht.
___________________________________________________________________________
Ok lol prepare for the ultimate wierdness. So I was delirious with with a 104 degree fever one night (that shall be my excuse for the following events ), and I drempt of NUtang. But it was sad. Lol so here's how it went down...

Dave sent out a letter to all NUtangers saying that the site was closing in December. He was going to send everyone their current revenue in due time, but after that NUtang was gone forever.

Haha, a rather morbid dream. Better go knock on wood XD. I know this site is very well-designed...but yeesh. Mind control? Maybe this is part of Dave's master scheme for taking over the world, one NUtanger at a time
___________________________________________________________________________
Woot! Tomorrow I'm gonna be teaching another workshop...except it's for my own team . Well, my new team at least. It's more of a team-builder thing, where the older kids teach the younger ones. I have to get to Kirkland by 9, and I'm a little apprehensive because I don't know anyone besides the folks I went to Alaska with...So yeah, anyways I get to teach tomorrow and I'm looking forward to finally jumping in a gym again. Lol my former teammates (Jake, Lily, my sister) are going to be going too, except they're not teachers . It'll be wierd instructing them

What an Interesting Feeling
9/7/07--Thursday--5:04pm
I dunno, it's strange. To me it feels like school never really ended, and I just got switched around in terms of classes. I guess summer had a lot of school in it, because I took that online math course and had some homework...but Junior year doesn't really feel much different than last year. I certainly do like my teachers a lot more this year , even if all of my old friends don't have any of my schedule.

Gah, I love English so much more this year . It's all very writing-oriented, and we have a lot of debate-ish classroom discussions, which are both things that I really like to do. Today, Devlin (it's her last name, but we all call her that) had me read my essay cuz she thought it brought up some "interesting" points...I'm hopin this is a good thing . Ahhh I reallllly want to make a good impression...she's really intimidating, and I don't want to be on her "iffy" side lol.

I think the only class I have problems with is Spanish. I'm pretty confident that the teacher doesn't like me, and I have virtually no friends in that class. Meh. Speaking of friends, I'm almost somewhat relieved to not have all of my "main friends" in my class, because it gives me the opportunity to make new ones. Hmm, maybe this year won't turn out half bad.

Ok well I have a jump rope meeting to go to tonight with my new team...kids don't need to go, but I want to start taking some responsibility and being aware of what's going on, ya know? Besides Elaine might be there and that's always fun . There's more to write, but I have to go get ready...I'll update some tomorrow! Catcha later folks.

Let's Play Catchup
9/6/06--Wednesday--3:27pm
Oh man I forget how much school takes of your day. 7 hours plucked from your life is something you can't help but notice...especially when it comes to blogging! Like all the other students out there, I'm sure that I won't be updating or commenting as much either...it makes me sad...but such sacrifices must be made in the name of education

So, yesterday was gymnastics and I was too tired to update, so I'll fill you all in now. Haha I tried my first front flip yesterday on the normal floor...I landed somewhat squat-ish, but at least I got it 2 more practices till backhandspring, I swear! Elaine sprained her ankle We were practicing front handsprings over these mat things, and she undershot the mat, and as she was coming down, her heel caught the back of it . Ahhh...her first gymnastics practice left her with such memorable adventures .

Anyways, today was the first day of school . Usually I'd be a little apprehensive, but after 11 years and a little growing up, it didn't really phase me. There's not a lot of people who I know in my classes, but it doesn't bother me as much as it used to. I'm more comfortable around people I don't know nowadays. That's a good thing. So I won't go over my schedule, since that'll just be boring , but sufficeth to say that my teachers are a lot better around this year, even the classes are so difficult.

People always said Junior year was the hardest...and I guess I never really believed them lol. Basically I have to write nearly 2 essays a week, and as much as I love writing I don't know if I'm that devoted . I'm still stuck in metalshop for the time being, but I'm prepared to stick with the class if changing to yearbook means messing up the rest of my schedule. It'll probably be good to get some handson experience anyway.

So I have a test tomorrow, one on Friday, and some homework tonight. Lol they just don't cut you any slack. I'd rather have a tight schedule than a boring one though...maybe I should be careful for what I wish for

Ok I'm bored. I'm counting the minutes till gymnastics today...bah!

In the meantime, I realized that I have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder for those who were unaware ). I was attempting to write a rough draft for my essays last night, and I had a strong urge to make it perfect, despite the fact it was merely a draft for constructive purposes. That and also when I was little I would also have to touch the milk cartons at the grocery store and grab every single coupon from those automatic dispensers. Sadly, I counted each and every one of those things...and ended up having stashed somewhere between 800-900 of those buggers inside my car. Lol, I hope I cost Albertson's $$$ Oh yes, and lets not forget sleeping on the cold side of the pillow. If it got too hot I'd start freaking out. What's changed since then? Well...we won't go into that XD.

Ahhh this is so frustrating. My computer has issues viewing certain members pages for some unknown reason. I either get a bunch of CSS or just the NUtrol and the Navbar. Sometimes a combination of both. So in order to honor these people whom I cannot comment myself, I've created a list as an excuse to why I'm not ever on your site :
Ikimashokie
GotMilk
Serendipity
Cher_Lyny
Thaitanic
cKybayside
TheZebra

Well that's all whom I've come across thus far :) If I'm forgetting anyone...sorry . Mmm...enough excuses for today. There are gangsters playing loud, annoying rap music outside my house and it's currently driving me insane so I should probably leave before I cause any damage to NUtang. Peace.

-EDIT-
Oh yeah, forgot to mention I made a few changes to the site, primarily the Nutrol and the new banner. The quote is from The Matrix, one of my favorite movie trilogies of all time (in case you havne't taken a look at my template lol). Well...at least most of the quote ;-) I may have added just a little personal, Nutang blog twist. Yup, very exciting.

Well, I'm pretty sure you've heard from a lot of different blogs by now, that Steve Irwin the Croc Hunter passed away...strange, I never really imagined a stingray being capable of something like that. Passing that barb right through his heart? I didn't even know they could move that fast or be big enough to do that...my opinion changed once I saw this however:

I found that somewhere on the web...those buggers can get pretty big. Well, at least it was painless.

In other news, Dave started a new site called everdayvids.com and I happened to stumble across this vid that I thought was pretty funny...then again it may just be male political humor in action XD

If you didn't know, the song that they do the music to is based on one done by the Beach Boys :D. And also, I'm not sure if Bush says "Haliburton" or Hallie Barrie lol...see for yourself!

So it sounds like the trip to Oregon with my old team is gonna have to get called off...Elaine can't make it because she leaves to college 2 days before my family is available, and honestly if she's not going I don't want to either . Speaking of Elaine...gymnastics is tomorrow! Woot, and this time Elaine is gonna try it out with the rest of us. I really hope she can join Hotdogs too...although college tuition+ hotdogs+ her sister also doing it would be really hard on her parents. We'll see.

Until next time folks!

Another day in the life of The Muffin Man...
9/3/06--Sunday--2:39pm
Ahh, school's almost starting and I don't know if I'll get the classes that I want...I signed up for yearbook as my elective (which is 6th period), but somehow they put my electives 5th period...and they were metalshop and business law! Lol, they sound a lot like me, eh [insert evil sarcasm]?

On a lighter note, it sounds like I'm going to be getting a job soon and my permit too haha. I can drive...just not...legally XD. (aww crap...smilies aren't working agian). I have to make a resume and submit it to one of my former teammate's mom, who has "connections." Haha hopefully something will work out. Anybody here gotten their permit yet? I imagine each state has a little different way of doing things, but like what are the basic questions they ask you? Lol, I don't wanna fail...I know how to drive, but the trivial stuff just kills me, especially when they nitpick. Help XD

--In other news--

In hindsight, this was probably not the best idea...but lol what the heck I'll just take a swing at it anyway. I signed up for the NWF thingymabob, against Dilated the man himself *insert fighting swordsman smiley that currently isn't working*!


Ready, set...go!
