Ode to Spring

Oh, ode to spring!
This poem is for thee!

Where are tho being?
Not in summer.
Nor in winter.
Not even in fall.
What a bummer.
Spring falls not in the center.
For there be only four seasons in all.

Spring Spring Spring.
Some may say they need.
But as for I…
I need not spring.
Though I try, and try
I find no seeds
No need for spring.

Prehaps spring should be removed?
Existence extingushied because spring be rude?
Nay say I
I like my spring
For in the spring I fly my kite
And in the spring I can sing!
Ode to spring
Though there is no need.
My last line, includes a seed!

Spring Break

Hey all, I’m back!

It was a long “restful” weak. Not really, it was short, and I stayed up to late to often. Doing pretty much nothing but sitting on the comp/watching TV with my brother. All in all it was an average spring break.

I’m not much of the T.V. Watcher, but I did enjoy a large portion of my week watching T.V. with my brother. I also wrote a paper for my eng 101 class at ferrum. I wrote it on how to properly enjoy prime time television. I think it will be an A because the paper was only required to be 3, I hit 5, and its quite humorous.

As for the computer. I played a few online multiplayer games with my brother. I am quite good at finding bugs that I can exploit, so I did this and my brother and I rose to the top of the ranks on the particular game I was playing. (not gonna mention it here cause I don’t wanna :D) We had a lot of fun.

 I didn’t spend much time of facebook/myspace/nextspacethatscomingandwillbetimewasting+confusingbecauseitisstupidyadayadayadayadayda.orgcomflashvlm

I’m not really into the whole thing. I find it boring and an overall waste of time. Not to mention a catalyst for self-centered ignorance and gluttony.

Good week. Still loathe school. Want to sleep. Want to go home. Will be home soon. My gut hurts.

Plans for Spring Break

I really don’t have many plans as of yet for my spring break. It will most likely be composed of the usual teenagers spring break activity. Nothing to special, just some rest with scattered activity.

Sleep will be the first thing on my agenda. As of right now, I am very tired from NACA tournement. So I will be catching up on some rest. I will go to the movies, hopefully. Vv will be invited of course.  And upon the friday of this week, I will be going to a ?movie? party with VV at a church buddy’s house.

I will still have eng class at ferrum, and will be trying to catch up with that this week. Probably have to write one of our weekly papers over springbreak, shoulden’t be to hard. So far… my plans are bland for springbreak.

The Home Stretch

Hey all!

These last nine weeks will most assuredly fly by. I am looking forward to playing baseball during these last nine weeks. I am a little worried about college though. Not the getting in part, as I’ve been accepted to 8 colleges already, but the choosing which one is right part.

I’ve heard people say when you find the college… You will just know. This is untrue. I’ve visited over 20 colleges now. Some no interest whatsoever. Others I think I might like one part, while lacking other things I am looking for. None of the colleges fit what I am looking for.

I dunno if I wanna be close to home or not, In a way, I would like to. In another, I would not. I also wanna play bball. I want a computer degree. I want a teaching degree. I also want it to be a smaller/private college. And I need to be able to afford it… All of these things together are almost non-existant :/

 As for highschool work, I hope I continue to cruise through it as usual.

Will hopefully be a blast this last 9 weeks!

Presidents for Hire – Mike Hucky

First off, I hope any one who is reading this is interested in the future of America. And if so, and you can vote, you should take a look at the current canidates and their views. I used these sites, to find out information about differnt canidates. I don’t plan on downtalking any canidates in this little post, y’all can find flaws without me pointing them out.

Canidate List

Mike Hucky’s Specifics

Political Party,

I myself have a conservitive outlook. This conservitive outlook convicts me towards the republican party. Like most people, I have my differences with the republican party and if an independent were to run with my exact views in mind, then I would vote for him.

As for this year… Republican appears to be the way to go!

Issues,

I’m looking for several things in a canidate. Pro-life beleifs, a truthful relgious conviction, one who seeks to lower taxes, one who beleives in hetro marriage only, and one who looks to take care of immigration issues.

My pick,

So far, Mike Huckabee is the canidate for me. He has upheld an appearence of a man of character. He claims to be fully effected by his religious beleifs, which is truthfull. He is looking to remove ALL income taxes, which I think is a GOOD thing.  He looks to protect second admendment rights, good, I love having the right to defend myself against tyranny, small and great.

Overall, he matches up with my views on a lot of the issues. And out of the other canidates running, I beleive he is the best man to run the country over the next few years.

And so begins Chapter 2

My outlook upon the current, second semester, are grim. I messed up my car last year (3 hours before the changing of years into 08). And I am going to be attending dual enrolement classes at a college nearby. That and in bible we have a long list of papers and readings and research to accomplish by the end of the month.

 All in all, this upcoming semester looks very busy. I’m already down troughden by the messing up of my car, and now there is a pile of work waiting as soon as we come back. I am really tired from the newyears party which I managed to make it to shortly after ruining my car. Thus, I am dreading the upcoming of basketball practice tonight. Normally we do not have Bball practice on wednesday, but since we have two games over the next two days, and no practice due to christmas break, we have to practice today.

 I think we will do a little better as a basket ball team this semester. We are starting to come to gether more as a team, but other then richard and I, the team is young and undeveloped. I’m sure we will have a few good games, a few bad ones, and a few hard ones… hopefully they are all fun!

The dual enrolement thing has got me kinda stressed. I’m excited to go and learn at a college level, but I always worry about not doing well. The classes will only be on tue and wed, so hopefully there won’t be to much work leaving me with some free time for living.

I may have to goto work a lot more often now, I will be needing either a new car that won’t gussel gas or gas money. Etiher way, I’m gonna be needing more cash and so my schedule will be packed even more :/ I really really am dreading this semester. Maybe things will look up in the next coming weeks.

Pray for me,

If I could change one thing about Thanksgiving

If I could change one thing about thanksgiving with my family… It would be the dinning quarters. We have a rather large family, and when gathering with grandparents and cousins and other such stuff, we tend to eat in our house, or our grandparents house. It was great back in Indiana, in our large almost mansion house, with the long dinning room. But here in Virginia, we are in a small town house, so we, my immediate family were the only one present this year, gathered around a small little table, loaded with food, elbows bumping and tried to dine. We eventually succeeded, but it was quite a task!

I really enjoyed this year’s thanksgiving. And I really needn’t any changes. I missed my family and friends back in Indiana; yet, it was really nice to have a peaceful, non-stressed, thanksgiving! Can’t wait till next year, more turkey, more pudding, more cheese cake… Hurray…

Remember to be thankful for what you have, and you shouldn’t need any more.

I just don’t have time to do that

This is a little info about the assignment we had to do, totaling up our weekly schedules!

Questions:

  • Describe the study and assignment
    In this study, we, the class, recorded our weekly scheduales into an excel document. We did this inorder to get a handle on how much time we have, and what we use it for. Good stuff.
  • §  What are the top three activities that take up the most hours in your weekly schedule?
    The top of the three activites is obviously sleep. This was followed by driving, yes I drive A LOT. And after that came school. Obviously I don’t spend a lot of time doing things one would assume.
  • §  Were you surprised at the information you collected? Why or Why Not?
    I wasen’t really surprised. Work and Basketball are really physcially draining, therefore causing me to sleep, A lot. Or some would say. But the sleep is really good for me, it keeps me running good, I don’t sloth around, I just make sure to get appropriate amounts of sleep. Followed by that, I do a ton of driving. Drive to school, drive home, drive to bball, drive home, drive to friends houses, drive home, drive to store, drive home… Lota driving. And then I only goto school for 3-4 hours 5 days a week, but that’s enough to take up a large amount of my time.
  • §  How will this information and study have an impact on your life?
    Once again, probably not much. But I will try and scheduale in a little more free time. I am working/schooling/bballin myself to death. Then again, I really enjoy bball, so maybe not. 

Fast Food Is Not So Fun

The Questions

  • Describe the study and assignment
    I Enjoyed the assignment, I found the study rather enlightening. We collected the nutritional facts for our average meals from several different restaurants. The meals had to be as close the same at each corresponding restaurant as possible. We then put the collected information into an organized spreadsheet, which compared the non-fat calories to the fat calories. Very informational information.
  • Select one of your meals and summarize the data in complete sentences
    The McDonald’s meal was actually one of the more healthy of the three restaurants we did. The total calories contained in the meal, comprised of a Big Mac, Large Coke, and a Large Fri total’d up to 1420 calories. The Big mac is a whopping 540 calories. The Large coke is 310 calories. And the Fris were all the way up at 570 calories.
  • Were you surprised at the information you collected? Why or Why Not?
    Not really. I knew that fast food was very bad for you, this only gave me precise figures. Though I do appreciate knowing this information accurately.
  • How will this information and study have an impact on your life?
    I will now know how bad the food is that I’m eating. Though like the average American, I will continue to eat it as if I had never heard the facts. I knew it was bad for me before, now I just know how bad it is for me. Still gonna eat it.

This weekend God showed me­­­­­­…

This weekend God showed me­­­­­­…

How many good friends he has blessed me with over the years. I recently moved here to Virginia and left behind my several of my “best friends”. Many wonder how one could have several best friends, I will cover this shortly. But I got onto this topic because over the weekend I found myself truly bored, therefore I got on face book and myspace, things I rarely ever check any more (1ce or twice ever 1 ta 2 months). I found that my best friends were still keeping contact with me, and so I messaged them back, and we chatted for a while on AIM. This chatting with them really cheered me up, it reminded me of the good times I’ve had in life, and how much God has blessed me over the years.

As for the type of friends I have, some would say that I have good friends, because I choose good friends. This is true to some degree, but I do this because my father has taught-en me the type of people I should associate with. And who decided whom my father should be? God! Thank the Lord again, yet another blessing!

And for the several best friends; I am the type that dosen’t have 100 different friends. I have 2-4 BEST friends, and every one else is just an acquaintance . Yea, I guess you could say I have a lot of good acquaintances, but this is only because I try to have a godly additude to every one I meet.

God has showed me how wonderfull it is to have a friend!
