Worried, Muddled Thoughts

Wow! It's been a while since I played some ol' fashioned classic 'scape, and quite frankly -- I can't say I miss it, but I miss the days when I was so enthralled by the game.

It's kinda sad, looking back, I remember me as a six year old boy. Heroscape meant so much to me, the people I met at tournaments were great people. I didn't worry much back then, everything just seemed to fall into place, and I was always excited.

Now, I guess I worry excessively -- I'm a gamer, which also means I'm a nerd, which also means I'm weird -- this scares me, and I constantly wonder if I'm fitting in. Despite that deep down inside I know I am, I'm still frightened.

I constantly worry about my education -- if I don't understand something, I stay up forever until it's finished, all the while absolutely frustrated. I worry that no matter how hard I try I'm still going to be under-par. I worry that I won't get to the right college, that I won't like what I do for...

2) Adults are a confusing lot, one minute they say something, and then later say they didn't say that at all. They can yell at you for 30 minutes straight, and then 10 minutes later act as if nothing happened. They tell you something and then do the exact opposite.... I have concluded that, when you are an adult, you lose something deep inside... teenage awesomeness maybe??

3) Girls are indeed quite a bit to ponder -- one minute they act like they're your best friend, and the next day they're steering clear of you like the plague.

4) Music speaks to you.

5) I wish God would speak a little louder.

6) People are awesome, but...

Learn Something New Everyday

So I'm a swimmer, and by a swimmer, I don't mean someone who goes to the pool to have fun or cool off. I mean someone who swims a strenuous fourteen hours a week workout, and then does another four-and-a-half hours of dry land training. And then skips dessert eleven out of the twelve months of the year... or at least, that's how it's supposed to be...

I was home alone one day for a few hours, I had already finished my homework, already been on the computer for a while, so I was just chilling and listening to some music from my phone. Well, that's when it kicked in -- you know, that enormous appetite for sugar?

Well, I fought the temptation with an apple... well, I tried to anyway, but I wanted something really satisfying. So I ate sugared cereal (lucky charms). Still, the temptation prevailed. Suddenly, my eyes flashed to the bag of cookies on the counter, "Just one." I told myself, but one wasn't enough, nor three, or four, or five, six and seven went...
