"I'm gonna knock you out...."
"..Mama said knock you out."
Well, that's what the FEE did to me. Knocked me the fuck out.
It made me realize something. I need to get my crap together before I head up to MIT. I can't do that for the next four years. It'll drive me insane.
I joke about me going crazy and running around at night in a Batsuit, but I could actually see that happening if I have too many nights like last night.
In other, more productive news
I sent off my letter to Ronald McDonald Scholars saying that I'll accept their money. (Honestly, who would tell them no? "Hey, I applied for your scholarship and wrote an essay for it, but I don't want your money, lulz". Ridiculous.)
Sent off the application to MITFCU for my credit card and account, etc. First thing I do when it comes is to get my cell phone (Fuck you Verizon, with your "oh, you don't have credit $400 deposit, lulz) and buy a pair of Nike Jet Stream 3s.
I haven't bought a new pair of running shoes since Junior year cross country season. So I've been pretty much destroying me feet for the past year.
So I've been doing some research. For optimal sprinting standards, I'm supposed to be able to bench 200, squat 320 and leg press 400.
I'm sorry, but I hate weight lifting, and me benching 200 by January is a LOST CAUSE.
Also, I can't squat to save my life. icanlegpress400nowbuticanonlysquat170makesnosensetheyusethesamemusclesandialwayssquatfirst
So about a week ago today, I met my father's side of the family. It was kinda weird. I mean, they're awesome and all, but I kinda felt out of place. They were all tightknit, and I'm just the kid who looks like them, but isn't really one of them.
Don't get me wrong, they didn't aliennate me or anything, they tried their best to make me feel welcome.
It's been what?
18 years of not knowing them? 4 years since I've seen my father and uncle last and then 14 years not knowing them before that?
One afternoon is not going to get rid of that.
On a lighter side note, there's this girl.....
.....actually, I'll save that for later.
