While I continue to “study” as quoted in my most previous post, I did have my first track meet of the season yesterday. The meet was at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA. School in attendance were Bucknell University, Kutztown University, Shippensburg University, Lock Haven University, University of Maryland Baltimore County, Bloomsburg University, and St. Francis University. Our school, York, was the only Division 3 school present, all other schools were either Division 1 or Division 2. Going up against competitors who are consistently better than you is very helpful. While it may be discoiuraging at times, you have to mentally focus and tell yourself that they are in a different category than you are, push yourself. AS for myself yesterday, I had an interesting day. In shotput I fouled all three of my competition throws. I unfortunately was unable to stay in the circle, the boundaries in which the thrower must stay inside while throwing. I had very good throws though. If I would have stayed in the circle I just might have had a school record. It was a great throw but I couldn’t stick the landing. I was so upset with myself but it did feel good to know that I had the capabilities inside me. Better luck next time! I can only better prepare myself for my next meet which is at Ursinus College on January 24!
It’s finally here. Pre-meet. The day before track meets. Usually our practices consist of a light throw and stretch just to loosen up and run through our moves and steps. This year, my coach has ben focusing a little more on the rest that our team needs. Hopefully by using these news techniques and methods my teammates and I can improve. We’re going up against some tough competition tomorrow at Bucknell University. There’s going to be a ton of division 1 athletes so I’m really going to have to dig deep and give it all I’ve got. Go Spartans!
This cold weather stuff is for the birds. Actually, it’s not for the birds because they’re the smart ones who leave this God forsaken weather. I need a pair of wings to get my butt somewhere warm.
Bora Bora looks nice enough for me right now
Who would have ever thought that my heating situation was actually going to get fixed? Certainly not any of my roommates or myself! But hey, it’s fixed and boy is my house nice and toasty now! We’re all happy and looking forward to the winter!
Look how clean and neat that is now!
Finally! Concealed and tucked away!
Say goodbye to duct tape and string! We’re moving on up!!
So yesterday I registered for my last semster of college. WHEN IN THE WORLD DID THAT HAPPEN??! As if this semester isn’t already flying by enough. I’m baffled by this. I remember it like it was yesterday, my freshman year receiving a sheet that included all of the required classes I needed to take throughout the 4 years here at York College. I never thought too much about filling that sheet until the spring semester of my junior year when it really started to become full. Well I’ve finally reached the point where the sheet is booked. It’s a sad, sad day to be me. These freshman have no idea how good they really have it. I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE THIS PLACE!
As the weather gets colder and colder, most people turn their heat on and live in warmth. HOWEVER, at my good old establishment on Jackson St, has no gas. No gas equals no heat. No heat equals loss of feeling in fingertips and toes. No heat also means I have to dress up like an eskimo just to go to sleep.
(normal sleeping attire)
It is UNFAIR! To make things worse, even if my gas were turned on, it would do squat. My heating vents in the basement are missing pieces. Some genius at a social gathering felt the need to strike our heating vents. Needless to say he was politely asked to leave the gathering.
(where the missing piece should be…where it is currently located is unknown)
We have told our landlord about the heating but he doesn’t seem to mind very much.
It’s safe to say he has moved our house to bottom of the totem pole of responsibilities. The very bottom that is, like the dirt that the totem pole is in is higher than us.
(the duct tape job of holding the heating vents up just isn’t cutting it anymore)
(look at this catastrophe of a heating source)
Not cool Mr. Landlord, not cool at all, actually it’s FREEZING!
