So it's thursday night, I'm a little bored, thought I'd update and stuff, and junk..

My roommate matt leitch is sick, which sucks, I've been spraying disinfectant on everything he's touched, gone near, or even looked at in the past 24 hours, cause I really don't want to get sick again.  Getting sick sucks, especially after the stomach virus after christmas, and getting food poisening a few weekends ago.

So needless to say, I'm trying to stay as far away as from him as possible. 

Eastside won their 6 straight state championship this year, which makes 8 out of the last 10, which is really just absurd.

Not only that, Eddie Coles is going for his 4th individual state title this year, which will make 4 team and 4 individual titles.  If he does this, then in the past 4 years, we will have had 4 consecutive wrestlers (Eddie, Corbin, JC, Leach) who have won 4 individual titles, and 4 team titles each.

(so many 4's in that last sentence)

Annnd now i'm gonna go shower, i'll post again soon

Haven't posted in a while

I haven't really posted in a while, so I thought I'd get on and just ramble a little.

I had a really good time in Alabama this past weekend, I love seeing the niece and nephew!

The new house is pretty sweet, manland and the pool are gonna be fun this summer.

While I was down, I went to practice w/ Jake and did some Brazilian Jujitsu with Chad, I really like it, and I think that if I worked at it, I could become pretty good, most of it came pretty naturally to me, because of my wrestling  background.

However, it's still not wrestling, I love wrestling, and it will always be my favorite sport, I don't think I'll ever like any sport more.

I've got some laundry, studying, working out, and other stuff to do, so I'm gone for now, unless I think of something fun to write about

The Mullet

Well, as most of you know, this christmas break, I grew a mullet and had some pictures taken for christmas cards to give to Mom, however, only 2 pictures made the cut.

Below are some examples of pictures that Didn't make the cut, and I've even STILL withheld some images, as they are just too ridiculous for any public to see at all...

My Big Toe

So, some of you may know, some of you may not know about the rather disgusting issue I have on my toe, so here goes the story...

It may seem a little gross, if so, I apologize..

So about a week ago, I had a hangnail, and I pulled it.

Normal so far, but it began to hurt more than a normal hangnail, and just kept nagging me and nagging me.

After a day or two it hurt extremely bad, causing extreme discomfort to walk or especially to run or do anything athletic.  It was constantly throbbing and I knew something wasn't right.  Upon looking at it, it was swollen, red, and purple around half of the toe-nail.  

I decided to get it checked out, the doctor looked at it, kinda poked and prodded it a little, and said without even the slightest hesitation "I know exactly what that is."

"It's called Paronychia"  And she began to describe to me exactly what was going on...
-She informed me that my toenail had been 'traumatized' and it wanted to start growing inward, like an ingrown toe-nail, however my body didn't like it, and started building more tissue to fight against the nail growth in order to push it back in the normal direction.  Well in doing so, some of the extra tissue began to protrude from my toe... Paronychia.

so for the past 5-6 days, I've been giving my foot4 hot salt-water baths daily, along with antibiotics, regular cleaning with peroxide, and neosporin.  

It's getting smaller everyday and soon hopefully everything will work itself out, however my Dr. actually seems to not want it to work out for the best, by dropping hints that she looked forward to having the chance to operate if things didn't go as planned.

VERY odd lady.

That's the disgusting story for the day, maybe an update to come later.

First Entry

To start off, I just want to tell everyone I saw a hawk gloriously and swiftly swoop down and murder a squirrel with its fierce talons today on the way to the gym.  It was incredible. 

This blog is mostly out there for my Parents, and family to read, so to Mom, Dad, Josh/Kelly/Ellie, Jake/Andrea/Gabe/?, and other various family members out there... this is for all of you.

It will be random, it will be sporadic, it will be  AWESOME.
(p.s. Yes, that is how you spell sporadic, I'm just that smart, look it up.)

You'll probably be reading a good bit of sarcasm, so be aware of that and be prepared not to take much of this seriously at all... If necessary I'll set a 'sarcasm alert' at the top of the post.

So, since I don't really keep regular phone contact today with you guys, I figure this is an easy, convenient way to update you on what I really do up here in beautiful beautiful Clemson.

For example, today, I took a test in my Stat class, and I'm pretty sure I haven't had an easier test since my last 'spelling' test.

I came back to my apartment played a couple video games, watched Aladdin on Disney and then went and got my toe looked at which has Paronychia, (I'll save that story for another post)

afterwards I did a little schoolwork, and went to the gym, came back and started writing this post, 

Tonight will be a boring night, TV and studies because I have an 8 o'clock class tomorrow, which is just awful.  

That's it for now, I may update later, but I need a shower cause I kind of smell from my workout today.


Under Construction

I'm  planning on providing an entry later, for now I need to figure out how to work this thing!
