Kyo:it's always cool to find people you just click with instantly, I met someone like that at university.
That is what I love about the internet. In real life I have never found someone I really clicked with, not that I didn't have friends, but there was no one where I went thought "Insta-friend, she is just like me". But online it is much easier to connect to people and find people that are just as wacky as myself.
I've met all sorts of crazy, geeky people online. I suppose it is a good place.
Yesterday I did interesting stuff, like finding and cleaning a bloody hole in a young horse's side.
Today I did almost nothing significant except find an outfit for graduation.
Today, my mom finally got a desk so that I can use the computer again. Yes!
I had no part in helping her, because I was on the other side of the state at Valleyfair with Isaiah and one of my friends. 15 hours awake, 8 hours in a car, at least 10 rides, two games of basketball, 7 hours of entertainment, one surprise encounter with my band teacher, and $73 worth of souvenirs and ice cream later (all without puking, for that matter), I'm home. I really should've taken pictures, but I never thought to since I didn't have a camera, I was stuffing myself with adrenaline and ice cream, and apparently you aren't allowed to take pictures in the park. So I guess instead I'll just show the website pictures/ descriptions of what I went on. I didn't even try to get in line of some of them because I'm either a wimp or I know my limits with amusement parks way too well.
TheOneBlueGecko:Today I finally gave in and bought myself a recurve bow, my backyard targets will never be safe again. I do like my longbows, but wanted something new.
Fufufufufuuuu Archery C:
D: Man I have always wanted to get into arhcery, but alas, there is nothing around where I live that could help me learn :c
You can do a lot with a decent sized back yard, a cheap bow and arrows, a box to shoot at, and the power of internet tutorials...now that I would EVER shoot it my back yard that would be illegal...(I lie, I totally shoot in my backyard, but I am super safe, I shoot at a large target always pointing down and have that set up facing away from all the houses and with a tree and a fence behind).
I had wanted to learn for years after enjoying it at camp and a year back finally realized that I could just buy a bow and learn on my own.
Around here the cheapest bows are unfinished long bows and some recurve bows, which you can find for $70 and $130 US respectively.
There are also archery clubs around where I live, but the closest on is about 30 mins away, which I could do once, but the idea of driving out that far each time I want to practice is limiting.
LauraEss:I helped dig a hole next door. More fun than it sounds.
In college I volunteered with this group that planted trees in parks and such, most of the time was spend digging the huge holes you need to plant a tree. It was hard work, but there was something so exciting and fun to is as well.
