Mississippi….gross

So I am back…again!  If you haven’t notice (whoever you are), I have a bad habit of publishing faithfully for a week or so, and then I’ll just quit.  Life gets in the way, I run out of ideas or something.  I’ve been wanting to post for a while, but I didn’t know what to write about.  I thought I could tell you about being back in school.  I could tell you about my photography class, which I love!  I could tell you about how we feed homeless people.  I could tell you these things…but I’m not going to.  Instead, I think I am just going to freestyle.

I have lots of random thoughts….that essentially go no where.  The scene in Apocalypse Now when they were water skiing popped in my head.  Naturally, I bought a Rolling Stones’ song.  But I can’t get no satisfaction from just one Stones’ song…so I bought three, which really isn’t enough either.  That made me wonder…are there any Vietnam vets that have flashbacks with the Rolling Stones playing?  I wanted to post that on facebook, but I thought it might not be well received.

I recently went on a beach trip. It was great! I actually drove myself there, made 22 minutes quicker than what the Gps had predicted! So, boom! I also bought a giant hat! I should probably upload pictures or something. It was a fun trip, but I’m not going to go on and on about that.

Big news! Not actually about me, it’s Formula one! Sebastian Vettel just became the youngest 2x world champion. Which is cool, because he is my favorite driver, second would be Jenson Button. Jenson Button is an extremely British name. British people are so cool. Seriously, how is an entire country that intelligent and witty. I haven’t seen the everyone in the country, but every British person I have ever seen is both witty and intelligent. Is it the school systems? It must be, or genetics. Apparently, the best high schools in our country are in Texas…which does seem a bit off. Because when I think of Texas I think of corn fields and rodeos. Just following stereotypes for a minute, saying the best schools are in Texas is like saying that least amount of birth defects due to inbreding are not found in Mississippi. Now that I think about everyone I know from Texas is quite intelligent…I still hold to the idea that Mississippi is a backwards state. I’m not worried about them getting offended by this because we all know they can’t read. I’m just kidding…a few can read. I’m just saying that if the United States were a family Mississippi would be the second cousin with four toes.

I’m just kidding Mississippians….kind of…

Anyway, thanks for reading! If you like Mississippi or if you know British people, please comment below:

Beach: day uno!

I come from a beach family.  We love the beach!  Naturally, I’m writing this from the porch of our beach house.  I feel one can’t properly write about the beach without the sound of the surf and smell of saltwater present.  As far as our trip is concerned it has been a great one day!  We got here Saturday afternoon.  Yesterday was technically our first day.  It was a good day.  I’ll just give you a synopsis.

It started out awesome.  We were sitting on the porch around 8ish.  I spotted an Osprey, which is one of the coolest birds ever!  I was pretty excited just to see an Osprey, but then it started feeding right in front of our house.  It was legit!  It would hang in the air for a second and then dive into the water.  Its first attempt was unsuccessful, but the second time around it caught a fish.  (sidenote, try bird watching.  it’s actually very fun)  It was about as big as a red tailed hawk, but it had a slightly wider wingspan.  We saw some dolphins, but they weren’t as cool as the Osprey.  Two weeks ago I looked at my old phone’s calender.  It told me National Doughnut day was yesterday.  Turns out National Doughnut Day was actually earlier in the week, but that’s irrelevant.  Mom and I still wanted to celebrate.  Our plan was to wake up early, drive to the mainland (or a local market), buy doughnuts for breakfast and surprise everyone.  Well, we didn’t really get them early, but we did get them in time for brunch.

We went down to the water, which was perfect.  Tide was coming in.  It was perfect for snorkeling.  Almost immediately I found some sand dollars.  We only kept six sand dollars, all the others were still alive.  It was pretty fun.  It was getting hot so we decided to go up to the house and eat lunch.  After my sandwich, my cousin and I played his Kinnect.  I destroyed him…but in a much more real sense I lost every event except for javelin.  Actually, we tied with 449 points.  I wanted to rent a bike to ride around on the island.  So, that was the next thing my cousin and I did.  I rented a bright yellow one.  We rode to one side of the Island.  Then we turned around and rode to a curvy part of the Bike path.  We ended up riding 7.81 miles, but who’s counting…..we were.

Later we played some shuffle board.  I love shuffleboard!  It became full contact, as these things often do.  After that we pretty much settled down.  We had some spagetti for dinner.  Then we played Bananagrams.  For some reason everyone accused me of cheating…I don’t know why, pagona is a word!  ha that was pretty much it.  I was exhausted.  Now, I’m ready to go down to the beach again.  So, I’ll write again later.
