Hey y'all it's been foreer since I last posted, and for that I'm sorry. Even though, most likely, noone reads this. Too bad for those who don't read, I have some vey good thoughts.

Anyway, now I'm in Chicago. with the Wickerts. And I just happen to be writing this from a computer in the APPLE store in a mall around Chicago, pretty cool huh? I am firmly resolved that, when I go to college I am going to get an apple. Simply because they are so vastly superior to any other type of computer.

tee tee ta ta for now smell ya' later...

This is an in tourney update from Trevor on the progress of our teamj in the debate tourney...
We didn't qualify for nationals in debate... in fact, we failed miserably.

Oh well, we might still have Apologetics, but I'm not very good at that.

Now all we have to do is "break" in Regionals and we're headed to Nationals in Virginia.

Please pray for us

Hey y'all, I haven't posted in a while so I'm going to now. I have trouble thinking of ideas for posts, and when I think I finally have a good post Hannah Rausch practically excommunicates me. That was stupid. Anyway, I've found that the safest thing to write about is my extremely unconventional and tedious life.

My life now consists entirely of debate, baseball, church, and school. These four things are the most taxing things in my life, no joke. I mean I stink at baseball, but it really isn't that hard, (think about that one). And when all is said and done I don't think anyone HATES me, well there might be a few small "haters," but for the most part I'm on the good side of everyone, except for myself.

This is the epitome of what cartoons should emulate. This show is beyond what we Americans like to call random. When I first saw Viewtiful Joe I thought it was the dumbest thing ever to get written, let alone produced. But then, like fine wine or coffee, I developed a taste for it. Then it took my breath away. The sheer stupidity and blind moronish actions of Joe is staggering. Then there's the character art. I don't know about you, but I like big heads, whether it's my own or someone else's, and Vietiful Joe abounds with big heads, just google it and you'll see. Plus his girlfriend is awesome. She is like the picture of perfection, she likes her man so much that he can just mess off while she's in captivity and she won't CARE... Furthermore the bad girl is actually somewhat good looking, as if the shows just begging Joe to ditch his girl and go with the bad woman (which would be really cool). Plus there's Joe's bad guy arch-nemesis who looks REALLY cool. So if you can check the show, if not you probably won't lose as many brain cells as you would if you did watch the show...

This is Trevor Blake livin' it good signin' off 'til next time.

You know there are some very valuable lessons to be learned from nineteenth century literature. One of which I just experienced. In "Sense and Sensibility" Jane Austen writes of a poor and unfortunate girl who thinks she loves a character named Willoughby, she is most grievously undone when Willoughby goes off and marries a rich heiress strictly for her money. The unfortunate girl is left stranded while, during the whole book, a man who truly loves her is sitting right in front of her, she doesn't pay any attention to him because Willoughby is so enthralling. This man, who happens to be a colonel, becomes her hero in the end and they are swept off into the sunset with no more thought of Willoughby. Her experience could have been a lot less painful, however if she had ditched Willoughby in the first place and gone with the colonel.

This is particularly hurtsome in my life because now I think was I right? Or am I going to end up being hurt by someone who really doesn't like me even though I like them when maybe there's someone better out there?

Lesson: Choose carefully and don't just throw your feelings around because despite what the old children's rhyme, things other than sticks and stones can hurt...

This friends is my solitary triumph of the wrestling year... I won, the whole tournament. I went undefeated and wrapped up the first meet the only one that had done so. Now I am greeted with the dismal record of 16-10, a horrible travesty of a promising season. Last night I got owned at Fairhaven because I wrestled my guts out at the wrestling tournament on Saturday. I am going to add that if the ref had given me a well-earned takedown I probably would have won, but that's in the past. We have one more meet in the season: TRI-CITY, the mother of all year-enders. And yet even with 8 of my 10 losses coming at the hands of public school wrestlers, I look upon this match with dread. What if I can't get in my groove? What if I'm not in it? What if I get my traditional 3rd, not first, even though I eat right and try my hardest? Well that'll be that. I'll pack up and try again next year. We'll return a beleaguerd wrestling team with only 3-4 juniors and NO seniors. I have to trust God, because competitiveness is in my genes. I CAN'T LOSE! I will pick up this team and carry it on my back... with GOD's help...
