Commando Tennis

Last summer, a few of my buddies and myself decided we were going to go out for the tennis team at school. Well we did and now we are on the team. We started practice 2 weeks ago. Private Lessons and strength and conditioning occurred before that. Anyway, we started Challenge matches a few days ago. Challenge matches are the factor that determines your ranking on the team. I have had two challenge matches and won them both. One match was against one of my good friends (he was pretty mad that I beat him). The other was just another kid on the team. I don't know my actually ranking but I do know that I'm not last!

Those Who Trust...

In the Lord, are a strong mountain, they will not, oh no not, not be moved. I sang that song a few months ago. I felt like I understood the meaning and I feel like i still do. But what about those who trust in other people? Seems like they will always be let down at some point or another, It is human not to live up to someone elses expectations, right? I have always believed to give someone a chance until they screw it up. After the screw up I decide if I will give them another chance. I don't know what hurts more, being let down, or giving that second, third or even tenth chance. Like I said I am a trusting person, this is a quality that is both good and bad to have. You always seemed to be deceived by someone or something. Never forget to read the fine print!

4 Day weeks keep adding up

I have lost count of how many weeks straight we have been out of school for at least one day a week. These 4 day weeks are starting to become a regular part of my lifestyle, I am not complaining! This gives me a chance to catch up on due dates for projects and such. Snow days are usually the best days of the year. To bad I won't have that leisure when the college years start, not to mention when I begin a career. 

In other news, I scheduled my classes for the last two semesters of my high school life. It was pretty easy and I like the idea of me becoming a Senior. Class of '09! When I scheduled I told myself I didn't want a complete easy ride, but I also didn't want to be in the books either. I feel like I found a happy medium. Nothing like going to school late and getting out early!

I had a run in with an old friend today. She used to be one of my best friends, I confronted her about her new habit of smoking. She kind of laughed it off like it was no big deal. I asked her why she did it, she said she didn't know. I sometimes think that I can prevent peoples problems. To her, smoking doesn't seem like a problem. She complimented me on my scent, unfortunantly I could not return the complement. Disappointment is quite a bummer.

On and off the record

On the record.
Where to begin on what I learned today in this world? Oh... yea, i know where. So I went back to the doc today, he I am recovering from what ever I had. I was afraid it would get worse but  it hasn't. I just hope there isn't a relapse. I over heard someone talking today about there gut instinct. Well my opinion on those is that your gut instinct is for what is right at that moment. Your gut instinct can change many times. 
I learned about dreams too. I have dreams that one day I will be very comfortable with the life that I live and how I make my living. I believe there are always variables in dreams. Such as where I live, who I marry, what my kids look like, etc.  Just know that dreams change everyday.
Off the record.
I started something new, Tennis. I am on my school's tennis team. We started practice today. I forgot how rewarding it can feel to ace your oppenent, or put so much top spin on a ball that you bounce it over the other persons head! It really can make you forget about what is going on off the court.
Did you know, that mistakes happen everyday? Well, the do. The first step is realizing that you messed up. Then apologize. Try not to dwell on it. 
On and off the record, I kind of like this. I Love You!

my Untitled

Have you ever been called something your not? Have you ever been something your not? My guess is yes, that is also my answer.  Have you ever lost your smile? Have you lost your reason for caring so much? My guess is yes, that is also my answer. Have you lost your reason to help, have you lost your longing to try and make things ok again? My guess is yes, that is also my answer. Have you lost your reason to strive to be perfect, not for everyone, just for one person? My guess is yes, that is also my answer. Have you lost hope? My guess is yes, but that is not my answer. My answer is,  I will never lose hope, I will never lose sight of what could possibly be right. Yes I am an optimist and I am a problem solver, never have I claimed to solve everything. I know I cant solve this problem, but I can listen, I can be a vent.  I can't be perfect, nor do I want to be. But I can be here. I am here. Never to leave or giveup.

On this Presidents Day!

So I have had a really stressful number of days. I haven't been 100 percent you could say. I have come to realize that you should never try and be selfish, that can sacrafice something that could come in the future. You should always try and make the best of something horrible. You should always give someone a chance. Always try and forgive. Take a breath! Be yourself! Say what you mean and do what you feel. Go with your gut, but against the grain. Live your life. Don't get to caught up in the past, present, or future. I told you it has been a very stressful number of days! I am trying to recover from a little illness I have, the doctor says that time is the only medicine. I hope that whoever reads this understands what im talking about!

First College Visit

Last night, we went to a play that Rhodes put on, It was called “How I Learned to Drive”. It was intense, it touched on very serious topics. That is all I can really say at the moment. Google this play and check it out!


Now we are off to the College, Marissa is chating with her friends about Valentines Day. This one girl she is talking to is talking about how some band popped out of her car or something, sounds really crazy! We shall see what the rest of the day brings.


5:08pm. We are leaving Memphis after a long day of auditions and interviews. Marissa did great. Her audition at 11:20am went very smoothly. When that was through we went downtown and at at Café 61. I do not recommend it! I had a cup of Gumbo and it was not good at all. Anyway around 1 she had her CODA interview. CODA is a little two complicated to explain in a blog. I suggest you check it out on Rhodes Website. The interview went very well from what I could tell. It surprised me how layed back everyone was. There was lots of laughter and what not.


We then proceeded to Graceland. We were all Graceland virgins. The tour was a bit over priced. ($24.33), but Cindy footed the bill. I took a lot of pictures which will end up on my flickr pretty soon.


Now we are on the road back home. We decided to skip out on an optional dinner so we could try and get back home before its gets so late. I am very excited to start up my blogging again and I hope it continues at a steady pace.
