The Rest of My Week

The rest of my week was just kind of the same stuff, football practice everyday, scouts, and all the great stuff. I'm kind of just falling back in football. There is always a better kid than I am who wants it more than me. I'm still being put in on offence, but I am on the kick off return team and the punt team so I will get some playing time. I finally got my decals and number jersey number. The helmets look really slick. There is a skinny blue stripe down the center and a big stallion with "stallions" under it. (I'm number 60)

Orchestra is good. We are having a chair test on Tuesday and I have been practicing a lot because I really want to be first chair. I have to play an A scale and a D scale, which I have figured how to play 3 octaves. What I am really focusing on is my bow. I'm trying to figure out a how I can be less choppy and sound more smooth. My chin rest also snapped in half and I have absolutely no idea how it did, but I got a different one from Grandma Hooper.

That's all that has really happened this week. I don't really have anything to look forward to either besides my football game at Red Mountain High school on Tuesday.

But, have a spectacular day!

The Past Few Days...

The past few days have been pretty good. I've been meeting new people, especially girls lol (I'll explain in a minute). School is boring and homework is crazy, but I have good grades. I am also really enjoying seminary. Bro. Spencer is a very fun teacher, but is serious when it comes to the lessons.

The football team has really changed up the offensive line. We don't have a center anymore and the guy they thought could play center isn't doing to hot. So when the coaches were all talking I overheard them saying they needed a new center or to some of you who don't know football so well the center is the guy who hikes the ball to the quarterback. I told my coach that I would do it for the teams sake. They were like yea that's a good idea. So I'm gonna try hard to get the position even though I have never played this position. I think it'll be fun.

No girl in this neighborhood doesn't know my name now. I'm getting tons of texts from girls who I have no idea who from. Sunday night I sent/received 90 texts in like 1.5 hours. May not seem like much, but I used to not send very many. I am always texting now and if I didn't have unlimited texts I would've spent $60 in one day lol. Cheerleaders at my scrimmage sat under my mom and dad's "shade" (they had their canopy) and they were asking my parents who was their kid. They said we are here watching Jonathan and The cheerleaders said Oh the tall blonde one? Everyone talks about him. I was laughing when my mom told me that. Last night for family home evening we went to the Murset's house (family in our ward) and I guess this girl wanted to meet me. Her and her mom came over to say hi. She was very nice.

Well that's all I got for now. I have to head off to school. Have a great day!!!

The Scrimmage

My team lost. We didn't do very well. We made lots of mental mistakes like jumping offsides and stuff.

The score was 0 - 7. I made a few good tackles, one kept the other team from scoring.

The crazy part:

At the end of the game there were police officers all over the place. Apparently kids from Fairfax (one of our biggest rivals) were filming our scrimmage. One of m coaches caught them and called the cops.

I know this is short but there isn't much to write about.

Scrimmage on Saturday!

Hey everyone, you are all invited to my scrimmage this Saturday at 9:00am at Shepherd Jr. High.

It will be a lot of fun. I will be playing a lot more than playing for the Paiutes. I am on the punt team, kick off team, first offence and defence. If you do happen to come look for number 23 in a blue jersey.

Any questions comment.

I'm Alright

There is nothing to be concerned about.

My bump on my head is completely normal. Grandpa says most human skulls do have bumps like mine.

My back is a lot better than it was yesterday. I will be fine.

Magnets and other weird stuff:
I DO NOT believe in magnets, but my grandma really likes that stuff so I didn't want to argue with her so I just put them on. Surprisingly they took a little pain away, but thats not something I would have cure my inuries.

Lol. I will be ok my back is getting better and my bump is normal.

My Injury and The SUPER cold bath lol...

Well Wednesday morning I woke up and started my morning routine with a shower. As I got out, my back starting really really hurting. I had to sit down because I couldn't stand. It is in the center of my back and very painful. I also stayed home for half the day to just relax. I went to my grandma Standage's house to have her try and help. I hung upside down on this thing and it actually made it kind of worse. Then she bandaged a bunch of magnets to my back. Very uncomfortable, but surprisingly it kind of helped the pain. Then she put Sun Breeze crap on my back which smells REALLY bad.

I come home after the long day and take an ice bath. brr! It was extremely cold. The very low temperature of the water constricts the veins not letting very much blood flow. Then you take a warm shower and the veins open back up letting fresh blood flow to muscles actually healing my back. Pretty cool. I did feel better afterward.

I will be alright. Have a good week/night!!

Random Stuff

Well I don't really have much to post so I will just post what ever.

Football has finally really began. We have put on full pads are now going full speed in our tackling drills. It so much more fun, but way more painful. I am starting to lose my starting position so I gotta work harder.

I have this weird bump in the middle back of my head. Its been there for a long time and my mom noticed it while rubbing my neck since it was sore from football. It isn't normal my grandpa said. Hopefully nothing serious.

I sold all of my cards. I can now get my lineman gloves woot! Those should hopefully impress my coaches during drills.

What other random thoughts should I post?..... Oh! I am 3rd chair in the first violins in my orchestra (I didn't play very well in the playing test), but I will be first chair in our next chair test.

I'm really tired. Good Night!!

What a Week...

This week has been very hectic. School, football, homework, trying to sell more cards. It's been crazy. But hurray for the weekend. My weekend doesn't start till about noon since I have football till 11:30am.

School has been fun. I have made a lot of new friends here and am talking in the big groups which i used to Never do. People actually know that I am there and talk to me. I have never gotten so much homework in the first week of school. I had about 30min to an hour of homework each day which took away of my 2.5 hours of free time.

My orchestra sounds awful. I don't even want to play in it cuz its that bad.

Football has been going good. Today was my second day with shoulder pads. I am also fighting with this guy for first string left guard. There has been lots of new guys showing up that aren't very good and are dieing out in the heat (it's really funny watching whining I'm too dizzy or I feel sick lol). Wearing a button up shirt and tie to school was cool but its now starting to get really annoying, but everyone thinks my dad's ties are cool (I wear a lot of his ties cuz they are pretty cool. Everyone like the frog tie the most lol). It isn't very comfortable.

Seminary is fun, but not fun walking there. I have memorized Romans 1:16 now. Monday is when we really start studying the New Testament.

Well I gotta go to sleep since I am gonna be busy all day long tomorrow.

Good Night and have a great weekend!!!

First Day of School

Well today was my very first day at Shepherd Jr. High. I found all of my classes and was on time to all of em except seminary since it is really far off campus. I also had to wear a shirt and tie.

1st hour:
Mrs. Chilton

My 1st hour class is Orchestra. We picked locks and lockers to store our instruments in and got out planners. Tomorrow we will all be playing.

2nd hour:
Mrs. Ewald

English is by far, the most boring subject. We did a greet and meet sheet thing to get to know other class mates. It was a lot of fun to be honest.

3rd hour:
Mr. Post

This class is science. He is a little wierd, but I'm sure he will teach well. Like most of my classes we just did little get to know you things. After the class we went directly to lunch. Man! Shepherd seems to have better quality. I don't know how when it comes from the same place, but oh well. I sat will all the football players. It was fun.

4th hour:
Mr. Schapiro

Math, one of my more favorite subjects. I actually got homework in this class. We reviewed a little and did get to know you sheets. My math teacher is strict and will be a good teacher.

5th hour:
Bro. Spencer

Seminary was great! My teacher is really nice and it feels great to be in a class learning about the gospel during school hours. The seminary building is really far. Takes about 10 minutes to get there since I have math on the other side of the school. He also cited a really good scripture that we will master later on. (Romans 1:16)

6th hour:

Football practice sucked since we wore helmets. It was alot more difficult, but i lived.

Thats all for right now im tired and I am dieing to eat some food.

Internet, Cable, and Other Stuff...

WooHoo!! My house has finally been visited by cox and we now have Internet and cable. I am not so bored anymore lol.

Last night I went bowling for mutual. It was a lot of fun. It was nice to do something that is kind of expensive for once and not paying for it. In the first round I got second place out of everyone. My score was like 139 or something. The next few rounds i just messed around and tried throwing right handed and stuff. I also made a lot of new friends, and I seem to fit in quite well in this ward.

I have survived football so far this week. I also know what position I'm in. I am the left guard on the O-line. (hopefully this doesn't change later on lol) I know you probably think I'm pretty small for that position, but I get the job done.

That's all for now. Time to go shoe shopping lol :).

Moving and Stuff...

Well it has been a while since I last posted. It also doesn't help that my new house doesn't have Internet so I am over at my grandpa's house blogging. We finally moved into our new house and are trying to unpack everything. (I will also post pictures later of the move and stuff). I love this house. It is so much bigger than our last one. The only problem that I have with it is that it smells so strongly of new carpet and paint that it gives me a headache, and we have termites.

Church was good today. I found all of my classes ok and there are very few teachers, but lots of priests. Mutual is now on Wednesday and we will be going bowling this week. It should be a lot of fun and hopefully I will socialize and make new friends.

I also have been going to Shepherd's football camp. I will be going to the official pre-season practices tomorrow 3pm - 6pm all week long.

I am also really excited to start school at Shepherd Jr. High.

That's all for tonight Cya.
