[ONE] Who was your last 3 texts from?
Jeff, Martha, Martha

[TWO] Where was your default picture taken?
in Hawaii


[THREE] What's your middle name?
Martin


[FOUR] Your current favorite color?
I'd say blue...


[FIVE] Does your crush like you back?
I'm fairly sure, yes


[SIX] What is your current mood?
Bored and I don't really want to go to sleep yet


[EIGHT] What are you wearing?
Shorts and a t-shirt


[NINE] If you were to go on a reality TV show, which one would you go on?
The Mole! I liked that show before they took it off the air and it's coming back soon.


[TEN] Are you imagining anyone naked right now?
No. That question came out of nowhere.

[ELEVEN] Did you ever sneak into an R rated movie?
I never have... I'm too chicken.

[TWELVE] Ever had a near death experience?
Yeah, nothing really interesting though.

[THIRTEEN] Something you do a lot?
Run?


[FOURTEEN] Angry at anyone?
Nope.


[FIFTEEN] Do you want to see somebody right now?
Anyone really. I'm effing bored of being at home.

[SIXTEEN] What piercings do you have?
None.


[EIGHTEEN] Who would you do anything for?
Not a lot of people. My family, a few friends maybe, but that's about it.


[NINETEEN] Who is your hero?
Marty Jo Banel.



[TWENTY] What is the one thing you notice about the opposite sex first?
Eyes. I don't know why, but that's the first thing I notice. Eyes are important.


[TWENTY-ONE] American Pie or Superbad?
Superbad, but I'm definitely tired of hearing it quoted so much, even though I do it all the time.



[TWENTY-TWO] What's your biggest fear?
I have a huge fear of heights I guess?


[TWENTY-THREE] Where is your ex?
This question sucks.



[TWENTY-FOUR] Would you ever take them back?
Again, this question sucks.


[TWENTY-FIVE] Do you still watch kiddy movies or TV shows?
Maybe kiddie movies occasionally, but I don't really watch a lot of TV in general and when I do I don't watch cartoons or anything like that.


[TWENTY-SIX] who's cool?
How do you answer this question?

[TWENTY-SEVEN] speak any other languages?
Not very well, I can speak broken Spanish when I'm drunk though.


[TWENTY-EIGHT] Whats your favorite smell?
This is actually a good question, but I can't think of a good answer to it. I guess I really like the smell of a freshly mowed lawn.


[TWENTY-NINE] Describe your life?
I'm pretty happy at the moment, but there's definitely things I'd change. This question is vague so there's my vague answer.


[THIRTY] Have you ever kissed in the rain?
Yes.


[THIRTY-ONE] Do you like the rain?
Every once in awhile, I like running in the rain as long as it's kind of a light rain and it's not too cold.


[THIRTY-TWO] What are you thinking about right now?
Going to bed and getting some sleep.


[THIRTY-THREE]What should you be doing right now?
I don't really have anything to do, which is why I looked for a survey to fill out. I lead a fairly exciting life, as you can probably tell.


[THIRTY-FOUR] whats your favorite memory?
That's a tough question! I really have no idea.


[THIRTY-FIVE] What are you listening to?
Spoon



[THIRTY-SEVEN] Who was the last person you yelled at?
I have no idea, I don't yell very often. Actually now that I think about it, I yelled at Simon when I called him last night when he wouldn't pick up his phone, but I was joking around.



[THIRTY-EIGHT] Do you act differently around the person you like?
I don't think so, but I think I act a little differently around a lot of people.


[THIRTY-NINE] What is your natural hair color?
It's red, but not a pure red. It's definitely not orange, though.

[FORTY] Who is the last person that made you smile?
My mom! She brought me some strawberry rhubarb pie.

an update on my life [Apr. 9th, 2008|11:52 pm]
brett_w_is_here
first off, the weather here fucking sucks. we've had snow, rain, hail, or just a complete downpour pretty much everyday for awhile now. thankfully, this weekend is supposed to be really nice. or so i hope.

running is going okay... i ran a really crappy race at montana last weekend. i ran 16:03 (ouch) for the 5k... but because i'd at least like to make an excuse for that time, it was snowing during my race and it was 39 degrees, it's at altitude, and i had to sit out three weeks with shin problems. so all things considered, my first ncaa track race wasn't SO bad. friday i'm running the 1500 at eastern, which should be interesting. the competition should be fairly good. my shins have been hurting again lately, but i'm not overly worried. track doesn't go for too much longer and i'll be able to take time off before starting to train for xc.

classes have been going well... i didn't start the semester well, but i'm picking up the slack now. i've decided i'm going to do a double major (accounting and business administration- with a concentration in law and public policy) as well as my math minor. it's gonna be a shitload of work... next semester i'm gonna be taking 19 credits, then 18 the two semesters after that. plus i've gotta take 2 classes this summer, which i'll either take at a community college at home or maybe i'll take them online. the problem is cascadia doesn't offer the classes i need to take... and i really don't want to have to commute to bellevue cc.

speaking of this summer, i have no idea what i'm going to do for work. i need to do something that allows me to take those two classes. i don't really want to work at home depot again, but if i did that, i'd make sure i'm working part time. i was thinking about skyhawks, but those camps probably don't start till late june, so i'd really only be able to do like 6 weeks worth of work... which won't get me a whole lot of money. my other idea is being a delivery driver at domino's. keith said he made pretty good money, and at least it's close to home. i have no effing clue what i'm gonna do. if anyone is still reading, any ideas are appreciated.

things with martha are going really well. i'll heed kaylin's advice and keep things to myself when life is going how you want it. thanks for reading if you've made it this far.

So there's this girl (Martha) that I met at a party a few weekends ago, and we danced and had a good time and all that and when her friend told her that she felt sick, she wanted to stay a little longer. We danced for a few more minutes and then her friend said she had to throw up so they had to leave. She kissed me on the cheek when she left and I thought that was that.

The last couple of weeks we had stayed in touch via Facebook and then I saw her working in the library once and we made smalltalk for a little while. We said we would hang out soon but for a couple of weekends, it didn't really work out. I wasn't sure if this was going anywhere or not, but I hoped it would.

Then last weekend we hung out for the first real time since the party, and her friends came over and hung out with me and a couple of my friends. Later I went over to her dorm, and we hung out over there for awhile and it was getting late so her roommate decided to go to sleep, but Martha wanted to watch a movie in the basement of her dorm. We watched Zoolander (haha) and we held hands and all that stuff and nothing REALLY happened (I kissed her, but that's it). But I think we both had a lot of fun.

Basically, I'm really excited. I think we're both pretty interested in each other and I think this might actually be going somewhere. The one thing I've noticed is that she's fairly different from the type of girl I'm usually attracted to. And I like that.

At a team meeting on Wednesday, my coach announced to us that he would be resigning as cross-country and track coach. Since it is on such short notice, the school is going to hire an interim coach for the track season and look for a permanent coach once the season is over. In essence, the interim coach won't actually be coaching us, they will basically just be a figurehead. What this means is that both our mens and womens teams will be coaching themselves for the track season. We had an assistant coach who helped out a lot with the mens team but he moved at the end of the year so we don't even have him to fall back on. It absolutely sucks. A lot of bad things have happened to this program and team in the past year, and at least in the short-term, this is only going to make things worse. Not to mention, I feel like I've been through my share of coaches.

There's a lot more to this than I've explained, but I've had to tell the whole story to a lot of people already and I don't really feel like writing it out.
