Welp.... It has definately been a while... Definately...
Where to start... Hmmmm...
I returned from a very relaxing cruise not too long ago.. It could've been better but i'm not one to complain.. I was surprised that I didn't have to deal with a bunch of drunken idiots.. I'm glad Ex-HistoryTeacher wasn't there so I didn't have to deal with her pitiful drunken self..
But right when I returned the relaxin stopped.. I started work at the airport. In the first three days I had 37 hours.. The next week i had 86.. I am one rich motha fluffa airplane stuffa.. But I can't listen to one of my favorite Gary Allan songs anymore... Boo Hoo.. I'll buy a new one..
Ok.. I'll talk to ya'll later....

Well, I’m finally a senior. I guess that means I’m a pretty big deal. It has been a pretty good senior year. Despite being disappointed about not making the play-offs in football, it was still a pretty good year. I think we got cheated, but what can you do? I made All-star, which was one of my other goals. Basketball went a lot better than expected. We should have gone farther than we did though. Baseball has gone very well. I had a bad season, but in the play-offs I have already hit two homeruns. I think we can win state, but we have to beat North Delta first. School has been easy for the most part. But we’ve had plenty of things to make it stressful. In this last half, I have also found a girl that I let follow me around and call me her boyfriend. She has turned out to be a pretty good girlfriend, and I think I’ll keep her around for a while, even though she hasn’t helped with my memory book yet. Planning for graduation and college is starting to get stressful. I’m planning on attending Holmes Community College under the Holmes Plus Program. It could turn out to be a lot of work, but I think I can handle it. I want to play college football, but I don’t want it to ruin my love for the sport. I’m still deciding on whether to try it or not. College will be different. I’m not used to being away from home and away from James, but I don’t think it will be too hard.
At last I’m in high school. My Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years were probably some of the best years of my school career. I started to make straight A’s. My favorite teacher was Coach Griffin because he actually challenged us. I spent most of the time hanging out with James, Patrick, David, Ethan, and Codi. We started our awesome band, Rushin’ Roulette, and got several gigs. Unfortunately, this was also the time that I started dating. The girls cause nothing but trouble and distractions. But I think I have done a good job of keeping my head straight. I became better and more involved in sports. Although we never got as far as I wanted to in football, I had a lot of fun playing it and learned more about it. Basketball and baseball slowly came along also.
Our family would always take a vacation to Orange Beach on Labor Day weekend. My parents, grandmother, aunts, and cousins would get a condo and stay for 3-5 days. I don’t remember too much about the trips. I remember my Aunt Jackie taking my out deep in the ocean on a blow-up raft and crying when I got salt water in my nose and mouth. We would also go on business trips with our mom and dad to Destin or Gulfport. Once we even got to go to Disney World. I had a lot of fun there. I made friends with Chip and Dale, they were cool. I was only too scared to ride one ride. But James was scared of the 3-D movies.
My first serious mistake, I mean girlfriend, showed up in the 10th grade. Her name was Stephani Hodge. She was in the 9th grade at the time. I met her through Callie, which was the first sign of the mistake. We dated for ten months kind of off and on. I wasted much time and money on her. Thankfully God took her away from me after ten months. He sent her to Eutaw Alabama. Although we tried to make it work, it really wasn’t worth it. We broke it off and I was upset for a while, probably more because of the $130 ring that got thrown out of a car window than losing her. This made me a little smarter and a lot cheaper for future relationships.
Now during all of this, what did I do for fun? I’ve always enjoyed fishing and hunting. I would always beg my brothers and dad to take me fishing. It would usually work, but not all the time. In about the 8th or 9th grade I started playing guitar. I eventually learned myself how to play it and the bass pretty decently. We started having band practice pretty regularly for fun. We’d waste our time at night by either walking around town aimlessly with a video camera or watching a movie somewhere. But now that we have cars, we ride around, go to the movies, or bowl.
I’m finally in junior high. This is when I started to turn into an athlete. Although I was still kind of awkward, I was able to make a couple more friends. But this is also when I had a bad temper. I got in several fights with Henry, Stephen, and Landon. These were my first years to play football, and I began to love it. I still didn’t have much interest in the ladies. I was slightly struggling with my schoolwork. I had A’s and B’s instead of my usual straight A’s. I finally grew out of my fat though.
