Dirty Looks

I was avoiding eye contact with my english teacher at all costs today. What a moron.

It hit the fan

Well the teacher called my mother at work...did he really need to do that? How juvenile. You would think I robbed a bank. Anyway, it looks like I'll be staying home this weekend.

I'm in trouble!

I was on my way to my 4th period english class, when I bumped into one of my cycling friends in the hallway. He was headed to lunch and wanted to hang out. So i figured (without thinking of course) that I wouldn't run into my english teacher and decided to hang out with him and have back-to-back lunch periods. Wooooooooooooops. Not only did I run into my teacher....he came looking for me in the cafeteria. Apparently he spotted me earlier in the morning walking in the halls. Man was I embarrassed. I could see my friend laughing out of the corner of my eye. After a good talking to, he promptly told me he was calling my folks. Sh*t! So when I got home, I went out on my bike for an hour and a half so I didn't have to hear it from them. It's 4:00 and I haven't heard anything yet from them. I have a bad feeling.

What's with the weather?

After spending thursday at the parade in 70 degree weather, I went outside today to find it was 36 degrees. WTF?! I wanted to go out riding today, but my only long-sleeve jersey no longer fits me. Time to add something to my christmas wish list.

Happy Thanksgiving

Well since I won't be around tomorrow, I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I was biking for two hours today to prepare myself for stuffing my face tomorrow. Enjoy the day.

Yankee Stadium Tour

Since it's a rainy day, I decided to post some pictures from the Yankee Stadium tour my family and I took recently. Today's sky looks exactly like it does in these pictures.

Congratulations A-Rod / Welcome Back Mo

Alex Rodriguez picked up his 3rd MVP award on Monday...2nd with the bombers. If only these MVP's would translate to success in the playoffs.

Mariano Rivera has also announced he will be returning to the only team he's ever known. New York just wouldn't be the same without him.

It's raining again

Poor Weather

I was sitting in school today thinking only of one thing (well, the pg rated thought)...riding my bike. All I wanted to do was a few laps around the neighborhood. When I left school it was crystal clear and sunny...perfect biking conditions. When I got off the bus I was rudely welcomed with rain and some snow. Are you kidding me?!?!? Now I'm forced to hang around the house and loaf unless by some miracle the rain lets up in time for me to at least ride to the end of my block and back. I guess I'll settle for my trainer.

New Horizons

Well, I have finally succumbed to the 21st century...I've created a blog. I figure this will be a good place to let my mind wander free. For those who don't know me, I'm 14 and live on Long Island. I am originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan and moved here back in July. I curse my parents everyday for leaving Michigan...but I understand why they did it, so I cut them slack. It's been really hard adapting for me so far, because I've had to start making new friends even though I keep i touch with all my old (the best) ones. Cue the violins. I am a cycling freak and a baseball junkie. I eat, breathe, and sleep them. My goal is to eventually move up the category list in cycling and also join my new schools baseball team. That's me in a nutshell. Later!
