Juxta

Thank goodness for my parents.

They got back from Hawaii today, and it is so nice to have them back.

Me and my dad spent a really long time talking tonight, and got alot of stuff figured out. It looks like things are going to work out, I'm excited. We talked about the homecoming stuff, and then the running/tutoring business. It was nice to have a voice of reason to talk to.

So, we got two major crises figured out tonight, I like the way things are rolling. You've got to love the old man, he's got the skills.

Kyle, don't fret about homecoming, it looks like we've got things taken care of. I've got plan that's gonna be cheap, crazy fun, and effective. Dang straight.

As for the running and tutoring dilema: I'm going to have to compromise. No radical moves to the left, and no radical moves to the right. It's a compromise. I'll have to take a little hit on running, but not giving it up totally. I won't have all the time that I would have liked, but I'll have some. Coach will have to agree to it, and I'll have to have everything cleared with the office. But really now, it looks like it'll work out, and I'm excited.

In other news, there's some cool stuff planned for the Alliance this week. I've been re-evaluating the way that things've been going, and I've got some fresh new ideas. Nick's been doing some cool stuff, and Jaron's got mad skills all around. We've got our forums up, so if you want to go troll around there feel free. There's not too much in there yet, but we're working on it. our ATWC video is finally up, that's pretty cool.

So things are rolling. The captives are being set free. I begin to wish I was an artist, or that I could sketch and all that. Cause I've got some pictures in my noggin I'd like to do justice too. Looks like I never really will, but I'll find other ways to share the goodness. I still need to write up my moon plan. I need to update this blog more, it seems to have fallen by the wayside a little bit with all these other projects flying around. So that's something that I'm going to remedy. Because really, I love the old blog. It's got a special place in my heart. I won't forget it.

Really, I think things are going to work out. I'm at the point where I'm really ready to make the most of things. There's been a recent surge in the blogging community, and I'm happy about that. One day soon I'll go through and update all my links.

Everyone's been talking about how highschool is almost over, and how we need to make the most of it. That's my plan, I've been thinking about that alot lately. I am going to leave my mark. When I leave, Taylorsville is going to be a better place. Maybe they won't remember my name, but that's alright with me. I'm going to make this little haven better. The Alliance and Ultimate are just two facets of the plan. I can see these two kids growing into huge deals, but even if they don't it'll be ok. That's just phase one, phase two starts soon. We're going to roll out the tutoring program, and raise test scores. We're gonna do some serious business here. We're going to leave stuff behind. Leave the mark. I'm gonna write, real projects. Not just the random posts that fall out of my brain, but stories. I'm gonna make videos, short ones. To the point.

In short, I'm going to make a difference. It's been too long since I have. I'm pretty sure Eisenhower has already forgotten my name. I didn't ever sign the catwalk like the rest of our engineers, so in 15 years, no one will even know I was ever there. I didn't leave behind the video legacy that I had wanted to. I think I did some cool stuff at Eisenhower, I was proud of the things that I accomplished. It made me grow alot, but did it make others as well? That's what I'm going for here. I'm gonna help other people. Ultimate isn't just for me. The Alliance isn't just for Me Nick and Jaron. Tutoring, that's not even close to being for me. It's time to get the genesis rolling. Time to ensure the future. Plant a tree, not so you can sit in the shade today, or tomorrow, but for the future. For 15 years from now, when a whole class can sit in the shade. It's not just about today. We can't forget today, today is important. We need to worry about tomorrow too though, and, if possible, take out the two birds with one well-placed sticky grenade.

As we accomplish our goals of today, let us ensure the future of tomorrow.

Let's bring it together. Not for comparison, not for the contrast. But to be united and stronger. Together, things are better.

ok this is random but i didn't know if i am allowed to comment on the t-ville alliance site (which is freaking awesome by the way great job!) since i myself am not part of a t-ville alliance, but man "Beef Jerky". . .what a great song! well you know, at least the video is captivating and that Jaron is one handsome kid. ;D

do you need a keyboardist or drummer for ATWC? I'd get in on that action!
