The upward climb
Wednesday. 9.28.11 12:31 am
I am really quite dumb, you know.
I just spent the last half hour writing out this melancholy post about sad feelings and troubles in my life....but when it came time to "Create this Awesome Entry"...it just didn't seem worth it. I think that just writing it all down helped get it out of my system, and good thing for you too! As much as I know you guys are 100% supportive and helpful, it's never fun to have to read a downer entry!
So, let's get on with the good stuff!
2 weekends ago I performed with Circus of Dreams, a part of the Children's Hospital Guild Association in Seattle. We did 2 shows and, along with our fellow performers, raised of $100,000 for cancer research! Watch our show below ... (I'm the guy in the red jersey and baseball cap...totally gangsta)
School starts tomorrow aaaah! It really doesn't feel like it. I'm taking computer networks, fundamentals of interactive design, and informatics research methods. Should be a fun quarter!
I'm also doing a lot of coaching with the team, and I LOVE it. Working with the kids is great. I've also done two outstanding workshops with a team in Michigan and a team in Abbotsford, Canada. Both have reminded me why I love jumping rope, and I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming workshop season!
What I'm not looking forward to is the amount of school I'm missing in order to fly every weekend haha...I'm even skipping 3 consecutive days of school in October to fly to Pairs....ahh! It's going to be a blast, I just have to keep reminding myself that school isn't THAT important....*knock on wood*
My buddy LJ stayed for 10 days with me....love that kid. We got him drunk one night (he never drinks! the first time he drank was for my 21st bday) and he ended up throwing up...ALL OVER MY BED. Hahah...he was sleeping on the top bunk and he threw up all over the side and onto my whole right arm below. Good thing I love him so much, because he made a freaking MESS. Stayed up till 7am washing and cleaning up!
I'm really not writing a very articulate entry, but that's because it's late and I'm just jotting down an update on rapid fire. I will try to be around here more often!
Muffy's To-do list for internet strangers:
That's about it for now, folks. Stay classy. 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.

um, WOW. That was so freaking amazing. I am going to post it on Facebook so that everyone knows that I am friends with someone who is like incredibly amazing and then by association people will think I am cool, too. This is my plan.
Also, by "Pairs" I think you meant to say "Paris" so I'll see you in October.
Also Nutang skype session ftw! It would be so weird to hear people's voices.

Muffy, you're making me feel like the person Michelle Branch was singing about in her song "All You Wanted". Poor thing, you can always buzz me if you want someone to just listen to what's bugging you *hugs*
NuTang skype/hangout session when you are ready.

Pfft, I didn't even need to read your description to know which one you were in the video. Just looked and was like "Muffy's the tall one."

Holy snap that was amazing! Skype sessions sound pretty cool. But, I don't have skype :( Godd luck with school!

Heh, you do stand out a little in the video simply because you're a lot taller than everyone else. It is a great video, though. You need to add me on Skype! I've tried sending you requests, but I don't know if you're getting them. And now that I really do need to focus on occupying my time and with you back in school, perhaps an in-city get-together is in order. Also, thanks for your supportive comment ... I know in the long run it'll be better, it's the waiting period that sucks.

Well you are right about that.

Thank you for not making the not-awesome entry and instead making this awesome entry. You're right, we're with you 100%, but it's also better to hear someone's good stuff, too. :)
And when you mentioned your buddy LJ I immediately translated that as livejournal. Talk about blast from the past...! X)
