God, I hate that song. So, sorry for the lack of quality posts here for awhile. Not really though, they were funny. Things that have happened to me since my last real update to this blog:
- I turned 15
I only spent one day back here in New Mexico before it's off to Ohio. Now, I was glad to get away from the heat, but you have to understand that Ohio is not a good place, no matter how much Ohioans deny that. Especially Columbus. Columbus is made of Catholic schools, churches, and strip malls. And rain. And I was going to Ohio to go to my grandma's wedding. The woman is 77.
It was kinda cool to see my family again though. My mom's side of the family (in Hawai'i) is very small, as opposed to my dad's side. My dad has seven brothers and sisters, and all but one has at least two kids. I have a really, really hard time remembering all my cousins' names. But I got to see a few who I haven't seen in years. My cousin Connor is going to be a sophomore in college, and he's playing wide reciever for the University of Wisconsin. That's cool. My cousin Rory plays college basketball. So he's basically just my idol.
The wedding itself was horribly awkward. My whole family is pretty Catholic, so as they were reciting prayers n' shit, I was like, "Who the fuck is Jesus?" Just kidding, I really like Jesus as a historical figure. But whatever. It was ok.
Now, I am back in New Mexico, and my summer is rolling. I really, really, really, ant to try out for Santa Fe High's basketball team. I've definitely already mentioned this, but I'm going to a new school this upcoming year, and it has no sports program. However, I can still play sports at other high schools. I'm not very good at basketball. But my goal is to be good enough by the end of the summer to make the Junior Varsity.
To acheive that, I've been reading a book. My uncle gave it to me in Hawai'i, because he used to coach. It's old, and very campy, but it's truthfully a pretty useful book. I've also been watching ShotScience. I'm shooting upwards of 150 shots a day, so I hope that at the very least, I can be a few quick points on the team when the team needs it (which is often, I believe I mentioned in an old post that Santa Fe High is awful at every sport ever).
In other news, I read The Alchemist. By Paulo Coelho. Holy shit. Fan-fucking-tastic. All I'll say is that I've read it three times. So, end of this long-ass post, too bad it wasn't interesting.
