I miss Fencing =(

it's been way to long since I last fenced mostly my own fault. but it's not just fencing that I miss. I miss hanging out with the team, and practices, and joking back and forth, and telling Patrick to stop complaining already. sigh I really am looking forward to school especially the fencing season. pro: this year the team gets bigger more new friends and teammates. Con this is my last year of fencing with these guys. I'm really gonna hate to see it end.

This is actually against the rules but....

it just looks kinda cool. the rule it's breaking is that it is something that might distract your oponent.

stupid essay

working on my collage essay. since my Mom kept telling me that this was how they were going to get to know me and it should express something about me. It somehow turned into me talking about the majority of the negative emotions i have experianced in my life and how they made me who I am today. I will most likely just end up rewriting it because I'm worried it will come across as me bitching about having a shity life, which, if you ask me, was definatly the case between the start 6grade and start of 9 grade. but thats really not what i had in mind i was really aiming for something along the lines of, "this is what my life was, this is what my life is now, and this is what I want it to be". well i got the first part coverd anyway.

back from Vermont

OK so no sailing because of weather, but i did have to bail out my tent. i got a ton of mosquito bites,on arms, legs, fingers, and feet. we stoped of at Cape Cod where some of our relatives had rented a cotage and that was when i started to have a good time. found a dead something shark and got a picture with it as if i had actualy cought it. went snorkaling and saw very little but had fun anyway and watched that meteor shower we had last night saw more than 35 in some amount of time not sure how long i was actually out there. i finished three books and am halfway through a fourth. i will start catching up on every ones blogs tomorrow i think

another vacation sort off

Going to Vermont for 4 days for little brothers lacrosse camp. During that time my Mom and I will be camping nearby. I had almost convinced my Mom to let me stay home for those 4 days almost. Then my Mom changed tactics from worrywart parent to dangling a carrot in front of my face. The carrot was the chance to go sailing on her friends boat. I haven't done any sailing in about a year (since I quite the overly military acting Sea Scouts). it was just to inviting to ignore, but I have a feeling much of my time will be spent in a lawn chair reeding any of the half dozen plus books I intend to bring. Last trip I ran out of reading material by the end of day two or three and I'm convinced this trip will have more than double the leasure time, so yeah

Manga Math

1 volume = $10 = 30min of reading
1 novel = $8-10 = 10+hours of reading

as an example 244 chapters of Naruto = 27 volumes and that was just Naruto's years as a kid, now there on to his teenage years and his adult life is supposed to come after that,or so I'm told.

the simple fact is that even though there are some really great manga out there and I mean on par with some high quality novels, it does not make sense economically to buy manga. that is why online sites, especially the ones that let you read for free, are so great.

when i say on par with some high quality novels i am not talking about Naruto on a scale of 1 to 10 naruto only rates about a 6.5 with me.
