I just noticed today that it has been 8 months since my last blog post so i thought i'd make one today to catch up.. where to start laugh.gif

Well winter was alright. I cut cut from the hockey team but decided to still be involved so i took the manager spot. Not as glamorous, or where i expected myself to be but it works. (what really sucked was that we had the best year of hockey in school history on all three levels).But i realized it made me a stronger person and "The first cut is the deepest". However, with my freed up time, i spent it on playing rec hockey, more TCC, girls and hanging out with my friends a lot more. So it wasn't all bad. And i watched in excitement as the caps kept winning to win the southeast division of the playoffs and Ovechkin being the points leader and MVP, it was a great season.

Spring rolled around and track season started up, and i was very impressed with myself, and so was the coach. I went from a low- JV spot sophomore year to the top JV runner this year. While I did accumulate some varisty points, it wasn't enough for a letter. Maybe next year. As school wound down everyday i was looking forward to summer. I also improved a lot this junior year academically (soph. year was my best though). I went up a half a point on a 4.5 GPA scale throughout the year and was really impressed, including English (thanks bushidobard for the help).

On some lighter notes, This has been my 8 months playing guitar, after a few months playing with a right guitar re-stringed for lefties (like me), I got an Ibanez SGT 120 acoustic guitar. While I thought i'd be a rockstar by now, i'm not laugh.gif . I can play most chords and do a few songs (even though they don't sound all that great.)

I also got my ice hockey referee license this March. I had to attend a seminar and pass a test and then i was good to go. I'm only working at one rink but i'm making money and enjoy doing it smile.gif .

Also, almost 3 months to the date of my birthday, and wondering when i finally got a car. My grandparents bought a new car and gave me their old car (which I think was the plan since i was born haha). However, it took a little while becuase they got the car last month, plus we were away and my uncle had to borrow it. It's a 91' Camry DLX V6. It's a piece but it only has 57K miles on it and is in good condition.

On the hobby front, I've slowed down considerably, I've visited my card store once since it moved, and that was in April. I've been active on TCC this summer (prob still not as much as last summer though), but it's usually selling or trades. I did save up for the Backstop to bust a box (http://www.tradingcardcentral.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=164150&hl=) but that's it. Hanging out with friends and gas money makes you run out of money fast.

Anyways, that's all I have for today, school starts in a few weeks and now i'm on my quest to choose the right college. HOepfully it will work out great.

thanks for reading!
