I haven't thought about my jump rope career for some time now. There was a point last year where I realized that I probably wouldn't be continuing to jump through college, and I was really okay with it...until my coach sent me to Ohio on November 29th 2007. That boosted me to a whole new level of involvement with the sport and totally screwed me over because I began to realize how much I loved it and didn't want to give it up.

Until now, I've avoided contemplating the touchy subject, but my recent acceptance to the UW has sparked a small commotion that neither my parents or I can ignore. My coach was dancing when I told her I made it in...and then parents whom I have hardly spoken to are offering to drive me to practice? My dad was a little bit overwhelmed by the response, because he had his heart set on this being my last year. He slipped, though: "Brian, if you go to Worlds again I'm not paying for it." OH MY GOD. This is huge. He's envisioning a future that might possibly have jump rope? If I could jump during college....just the thought is exhilerating. I am not exaggerating when I say that jump roping at the UW would probably be the best four years of my life.

I have a Journalism conference tomorrow. From 9am to 4:30pm...and then tolo a few hours later. I will be one tired Muffy...tired, but very very happy

And just for the sake of sensationalism...I'm not sure if I mentioned earlier, but Jesse chipped his two front teeth trying a trick called the Death Wish, aptly named because you fly toward the ground with your hands behind your back. Anyhow, he was "peer-pressured" into trying it at trials, and, well...the video tells all.

The funny part is the cackling mothers. One of them even says:
"Did you see what they were trying to do? You do a handstand...then you lower." She says it with such earnesty, it's hilarious because she's dead wrong.
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.

I hate it when parents force you to choose! It is as if we cannot juggle two things at once. Does your dad not know that being involved actively in sports and have good grades is very good because helps you to get scholarships? Poor Jesse, he's going to need to get his teeth done because chipped front teeth wont look good for long.

How much will it cost you to go to Worlds? Maybe you can save your way to it.

Just a little warning, if you plan on watching Midori Days then there are quite a few episodes (like 3-5) that show breasts. When I went to first watch the anime I was brought to a page that was warning me that the video I wanted to watch may have nudity/ violence/ etc which kind of confused me. So that's a little warning. The links at veoh weren't working, but surprisingly there are working videos of it on youtube.

He got back up pretty fast, for chipping his teeth...

I didn't know colleges did jumproping....

And yes, I was manning the camera. And I know it's terrible and shaky. But I was laughing because I couldn't get the word and she just kept doing the thing and we were shouting "GIVING BIRTH? IS IT GIVING BIRTH?" and other such.... things.

Hahahaha, I should jokingly give one of my friends Pi on her birthday...

Oh yes, and I read your previous post- I agree! We should each count our blessings/recall the happy moments at the end of each day.

ah, kinda same with me!
I had never thought of continuing dance in/after college or going serious with it. Now I'm not so sure. I might.
Now let me take a look at that video. *wince*

baptist camp makes a huge difference. It increases the suck ratio by 15% and the super orthodox lunacy by 10%

ha, weed doesn't ever smell good, but having so many friends who smoke it, I can tell whether the stuff they're smoking is good or bad {quality-wise} depending on the smell. it's sad that I know that. =/
