Graduation Party Weekend

My mom and aunt threw a graduation party for me and two of my cousins yesterday. Although mom said that not too many people were going to come, there was a lot bigger turnout than I expected. For those of my family who read this, I just want to thank those of you that came, and I want to especially thank my aunt Mary for having the party at her house. The party was a lot of fun. I got to see family I do not get to see very often. A great highlight of this weekend was playing with my twin cousins Jade and Eden. I haven't seen them since Thanksgiving, and once again, I had to take pictures of them. They are both extremely adorable by themselves, but together they are even more so.

An Activity for a Nerd

Adam showed me this site that he always goes to called Daily Dose of Imagery and got me hooked on it as well. Not only do I love to look at the amazing pictures he takes, but I also like to try to figure out where he was standing when he took the pictures.

Poultry Days 2005

Poultry Days...there are only two words that can describe this event...IN SANE. If you don't agree or understand why this statement is true, it's probably because you aren't an ultimate player. Just picture the the greenest fields, sun and rain points, zero wind, and discs flying as far as the eye can see. This tournament started in 1982 with two teams and has since grown to include 70 teams. To see that many people gathered to play ultimate is absolutely hot (ultimate lingo).

I rode up with Ben Parris, Evan Boucher, and Dan Ambrus. The four of us are part of the group (along with some others) of less experienced ultimate players with the LouEvil Villains. But then again, LouEvil is less experienced than most of the teams that play at Poultry Days. However, Steve Loomis, LouEvil's captain, stated that LouEvil has made it farther in the tournament than ever before, directing his thanks to us. Way to go guys. :)

I'm glad that I decided to go to this tournament. Not only did I get to know my teammates better, but it is an experience that I won't forget. The funnest part of the weekend was the All-Star game. After Saturday's seeding games, teams with a record of 2-2 or higher got to pick one teammate to play in the All-Star game. We ended up picking Scotty Warrington. The game took place in the middle of all the camp sites. I've never seen so many people gathered together to watch ultimate. I would say the coolest part of the weekend was watching Team USA in the championship game on Sunday. This team made teams that I've seen go to nationals on CSTV look like sissies. Never have I seen that amount of skill displayed in this sport.

Oh Boy

Ah, a Thursday, it's like practically Friday because I don't have class tomorrow. What a perfect night to play some ultimate. I sure would love to head down to the waterfront and play with Ming, Jefi, Morris, Melodie, and Woody. Eh, don't be so selfish. I should go to the Interfaith Center coffeehouse to welcome freshman for freshman orientation.

Ok, I'm here. Let's welcome freshman. Yay. Hi what's your name? Hey we have snacks, and, chairs, so come on in. Bye, have a good night. Phew, man, I'm feeling kinda antsy. Hey Wesley. Welcome to the IFC. Help yourself to food and coffee. Ah, so you're going into chemical engineering, eh?

Ooo, what's this? Oh yay, it's the Interfaith Center smiley face volleyball laying on the floor. This should ease my antsiness. I can just spin it on my finger here. Haha, I remember when my mom would yell at me for playing with balls in the house. Haha, yea, and she's not around right now. What does she know anyway? What are the possibilities of something bad happening? Like the ball is just going to fly off my finger and knock some freshman's coffee out of their hand spilling it all over them. Ha, that's funny...

My Personality

Over the past semester I have (half jokingly) been wondering if I should drop out of speed school and see if I could make it into art school. Well, I took an online personality test and here are my results...

My #1 Match: ISFP-The Artist

You are a gifted artist or musician (though your talents may be dormant right now). You enjoy spending your free time in nature, and you are good with animals and children. Simply put, you enjoy bueaty in all its forms and live for the simple pleasures in life. Gentle, sensitive, and compassionate - you are good at recognizing people's unspoken needs. You would make a good veterinarian, pediatrician, or composer.
