After finding out a school Dean chased after a Mercedes in a trash can yesterday, that same day I had to go to a party after school. When school had finished, I had to catch the train and follow a friend to the party cuz’ he knew which station to get off at. When we were inside the train, I was too busy talking to another person I didn’t know that my friend had hopped off, so when I relized I was at the station the next thing I saw were the doors closing on me. When I arrived at the next station, I saw a train on another platform going back so I ran over the bridge and missed that train, then all of a sudden another train arrives, except on the other platform, so I ran over to that platform and missed the train again, the next train going back was coming in 10 minutes on the same platform, so I just waited. When I finally arriverd at the station, I didn’t know the directions to the party so I just called up one of my friends going to the party so he could give me directions. Apparently his directions lead me to a freeway, it’s either I didn’t hear his directions properly or he just did it to get me lost, so he had to come and pick me up from where I was. Finally arriving at the party, I went to a friends bedroom just to put my stuff down, I could not believe what I found in his bedroom, I swear in his cupboard he had leather bondage and on his study desk he had very strange looking toys. I also had a swim in their ice cold pool. After swimming, we had pizza, then everybody went out into street to have a painful water balloon fight, everybody was throwing it at each other’s backs. All the remaining water balloons we used to throw at cars passing by, once we ran out, people were just giving cars Brown Eyes. Once I left the party, I had a big subway sandwich to eat at the train staion while waiting for the train, then arriving home I had a sumo sized bowl of noodles, I sure did sleep like a baby that night.
I just played a game of inter-school basketball. According to our timetable, the game was at 8.30 am homegame, but with our opponents timetable, who happen to be arch-rivals with our school in everything, it said 9.00 am. So what we did to fill in that time is just play a warm-up game against each other. Unfortunately it got us really tired after the first quarter. Finally when our arch-rivals arrived, we were pissed and tired, pretty much because they didn’t com on time, so we only were able to play half a game against them. My anger sure did show in this game, I threw this guy over my shoulder when he grabbed the ball and dropped an elbow on the back of this guy’s head. I could tell after these “accidents”, nobody wanted to block me. After this stressing match, we ended with a score of 12-12, I know we could’ve beaten these guys cuz’ we did it before.
Ok, my basketball team was just playing knockout for practise. In knockout, you have to try get the person in front of you out by getting a basket before they do. First, we were playing from the free throw line, I managed to make it to the final three. Next we played from the three point line, I didn’t go too well this time. Then finally, we played from the half way line. After some intense shooting, I all of a sudden was able to get a nice clean shot from half way, so I was able to get the person in front of me out, now it was down to me and this other kid. I swear that I had wasted 20 million chances to win the game and just as much to lose the game. Then luck had helped me out, the kid had shot the ball so hard it went over the back board and bounced into golf course nearby. I knew I had to use my 20 million and 1st chance wisely, I took a few minutes focusing on the basket and when i finally shot, I MISSED :O! Good thing the kid’s ball was still rolling down the hill, I didn’t spend much time focusing and aiming for the basket cuz’ I already saw people leaving to get a cup of coffee, so I lazily shot from the three point line and GOT IT IN! Strangely after I won, my coach came up to me and asked me how I could bench press, I just told him that I’m in the couch nearly all the time :-P! that sure did oput a frown on his face.
Ok, this how it all started. During our Grade 8 assembly, some random guy decides to honk his horn at us, well at least I think it was us. So what would you do? Would you let it go or chase after the bastard. Well apparently one of the school’s Deans decided to chase after the culprit in an antique. You would expect him to use a land rover, but instead he uses a 1972 Holden. Who would bother chasing after a Mercedes in a rust bucket. Imagine a hatchback speeding on a freeway just to get the license plate. Anyways, when the Dean got back, he told us that he went to the nearest police station so he could report that guy.
Well, my first grading for Aikido was hell, it would have to be the worst four hours of my life and no I didn’t grade for four hours, many people were grading on the same day so we all had to wait until it was our turn… kneeling, the only good thing about the grading was that we all were allowed to sit cross legged for 5 minutes every 30 minutes. My grading was a walk in the park, and the cool thing was that mistakes were allowed. The free throwing part of the grading was ‘Da Bomb’, we were allowed to throw our partner pretty much anywhere we wanted!
