THE CRASH!!!

Here it is:


And here's the story :)

It was sometime in high school... probably my junior year, and we were snowboarding. They had set up some rails in the trick park and some of them were pretty shallow so I thought I'd give it a shot x) I was usually a very daring person...

Dad video taped me and I went down, really cool and collected... I hit the rail at a strange angle or something and toppled right over, landed on my face and brought my legs down on the rail... watching it now, it kind of looks like I snapped my back too xD

Anyways, Dad (as you can see at the end of the video) dropped the camera and was going "OMG are you okay????" And I sat up and said, "Did you get that!?!"

So dad burned it onto a disk for me and showed it to everyone he knows and to this day he still talks about "the crash" where he thought I was dead and all I cared about was whether or not he got it on video x)

Enjoy... it still cracks me up every time! BTW, one of my friends who saw this said I look like a Snowboarding ninja ;) Do you agree?

How I Joined the Spanish Club

When I was a Sophomore in high school, I took Spanish for the first time. My teacher was a really nice, young woman who was very enthusiastic about her subject... I was just in it to get my foreign language requirement for graduation.

My best friend and I were in Spanish together and took pretty well to it, we just seemed to "get it" where the rest of the class struggled. My teacher had made mention of the Spanish Club during our class in hopes that some of the Spanish I students might be interested, but none of us were. After all, who would want to join a failing academic club that had nothing to do with anything you were really interested? I admired her effort, but I had no interest at all.

About the second or third week of school, Brian and I got wind of an Anime club showing during lunch in the foreign language hall. We made our way down the hall and looked in each of the rooms trying to find it when our Spanish teacher saw us. "Can I help you guys find something?" she asked.

"We're looking for the Spanish Club." I said, accidentally saying Spanish when seeing her changed my train of thought. She immediately looked really excited and said, "It's just down this way! I'm so glad you two decided to come!" while I corrected her, "Oh... I mean Anime Club."

She suddenly looked really disappointed but showed us where to find the Anime Club. We joined the kids in the French room to watch whatever anime it's self-appointed president had brought with him before realizing his choice in anime sucked.

I turned to Brian and told him that I felt really bad for getting Mrs. Pope so excited and then correcting my mistake. "Maybe we could just go to one meeting..." I said, "Just to make up for it and give them members for at least one meeting?"

So we went - with no intention of ever going again. Mrs. Pope was glad to see us, and the upperclassmen (there were probably five members before we showed up) were glad to have us too. I don't even know how it happened, but we decided to keep going back.

It turned out to be a lot of fun and from then on, Brian and I went every week and really helped turn the club around. It never did much for members, but we had a LOT of fun the two years I was in it :)

I ended up lettering in Spanish Club and probably would have been in club leadership my senior year if the "Global Club" hadn't formed to zap the membership of the Spanish Club.... but that's a story for another day....

Okay, seriously now

I'm excited that I got this to work!! I'll play around with it and see if I can't get all of my characters onto the same account... Plenty of opportunities here, that's for sure!

Anyways, I was randomly brought back to my picture of Eggplant Man today and really wanted to finish a picture of him or something. The only problem is that I have so many darn characters... I don't know what to do with them and who to write for and whatnot. Lately, I've been wanting to finish Zy's and Cazal's stories, but I just can't get the inspiration to write :/ I have all of the stories, beginning and end all perfectly planned out, but I just can't get the stuff in the middle!

Anyways, we watched Little Women today and I loved it. It makes me cry every time... what a good movie!
