Red Bull Stratos

14 Oct

Did anybody else watch Red Bull Stratos live on Discovery Channel this morning. If you don’t know about, basically a guy named Felix Baumgartner jumped from a capsule at the edge of space 24 miles (128,000 feet) above earth, then he free-fell for almost five minutes breaking the sound barrier before deploying his parachute and landing safely on his feet 10 minutes after he first jumped. I think Felix Baumgartner might be the all time king of YOLO.

Nutella Makes You Puke RAINBOWS

20 Feb

Challenge Accepted

Kendyl, Morgan, Tristan, Cody, 20 other people I taught this year, MY BAD. lol

Nutella makes you puke rainbows! It’s That Good!

Last week was pretty boring. Some time last week Northwest sent out an email saying that due to budget cuts the aquatic center would be closed within 2 weeks, and it would eventually be abandoned or renovated for a different use. Our rec center already sucks but without the aquatic center it’s just downright crappy. Also last week Northwest sent out another email to all students saying that due to budget cuts several majors will cut after this year and many of the professors who teach classes for the majors that get cut will be let go. Well that emailed in particular pretty much pissed off the entire student body here (a lot more than the aquatic center one). Because basically if you are not a senior and your major got cut then your options are to transfer or change majors, it doesn’t matter how much coursework you had already completed for it. A lot of the ones that got cut were specialty education and art majors which are the only reason some students came here. So a lot of people are in a bad mood and I feel like this school is one angry person away from a giant protest. My major is safe and I am leaving anyways, but I think a protest could be fun.

Red Bull Schlittentag is this Sunday and Me, Cody, and Tristan are going to dominate. Our sled (Our Whip) is done just needs to be painted. We used power tools for a good 5 hours and nobody was hurt (minor miracle).

I am so happy classes at Northwest end the last week of April. I’m ready to move out of my prison cell of a dorm room and to start working this summer, and to get tan (mostly I just want a tan). Also spring break is only a few weeks away and I have been eagerly awaiting it since January

Peace, Love, and Happyness

Life after the X Games

1 Feb

I was busy driving back from Colorado Monday and I was busy sleeping Tuesday so I am posting today.

2012 Winter X Games

So this last weekend was the 2012 Winter X Games which were freaking ZESTY. I have already decided I am at the least going to go to the next 9 Winter X Games to make it 10 Straight. Even if 9 Years from now I end up being one of those people we may of (We 100% did) bad mouth for bringing a baby or small child to the X Games (I Really really Really hope that isn’t me), though I now understand that you gotta do what you gotta do, no matter what to go. First off me and Cody went Skiing and Snowboarding on the way to the X Games at Loveland Ski area, located at 10 thousand feet. We were a little out of breath and dizzy the entire time from being so high up, but it was totally worth it, we hit every trail no matter how hard or how stupidly dangerous it was. I really wanted to and still do want to drop out of college and go work there all winter every winter FOREVER!

Normal Life

Indoor soccer with the club soccer team started up last week and I am constantly sore and dead tired from it. I have been back from Colorado for 2 days and I have already went through 7 cans of Red Bull I will admit it I have a problem I am addicted to Red Bull, but I quit drinking pop so its all good and healthy. I also have a really bad habit of falling asleep in class, so that’s where Red Bull come in handy. I am also doing something this semester that I have never done in my life, which is study for a test more then a day in advanced. I am studying for test I don’t have for weeks, sorry if that’s just a norm for you guys but I am proud of my self for it.

This Picture  is supposed to be a Lazy College Senior but it applies to me, so I guess I have all ready matured to the level of a college senior, Right?

Life After the X Games sucks!
Peace to your Double Corks, Love to you Backside Rodeos, and Happiness to perfect 100’s

Burn him at the Stake.

24 Jan

I guess I have to blog since I made this suggestion about Nick.

Classes are good, while my amount of sugar intake is not. My two views on this are that I am young and can eat whatever I want, but on the other hand Diabetes runs in my family. I’m working on it. Gradually. I’ll start after I finish my box of junior mints.

Everything seems to fall on the same week. This week is recruitment for the sororities so I’m going through to see if I want to join, I’m not really sure yet, too soon to tell. I also have to make sure I get everything for school done early since I will be missing several days for the X-Games. The X-Games. The X stands for EXTREME. I can not express on this blog how excited I am to see Shaun White! I’m also excited about the fact that I will be consuming copious amounts of red bull.

The NFL disappointed me, not to mention the Packers losing early on, but both the teams I wanted to see in the Super bowl (Ravens and 49ers) are out. What a troll.
The only positive thing from this is now Aaron Rodgers and Greg Jennings can actually play in the Pro bowl.

Here is a video my brothers showed me. Most of you probably won’t appreciate it, but I find it hilarious.

P.S. The sour will soon be removed.
Sometimes codes just make things better.
