I find it surprising how soon summer arrived this year. It seems like just a week ago i was sitting in class during the week of June 1st. Everything just went by so fast this year and i was up to my knees in schoolwork until the last possible day of school. I never got the anxious exciting summer feel until i was finally done. I've only had about 2 full days off so far but i've already started enjoying my summer. Unlike last year, where i just sat around and didn't do much. This year, i have a car, and already have some things planned. I can't wait for summer to finally kick in.
So, i finally went to the golf course last Sunday with one of my friends. He's letting me borrow his old clubs so i'm looking to get into golfing. I've only gone 3 times in my life, and always to the same course. The course stinks to say the least. It's only 9 holes, 3 par on all of them, furthest shot is about 140 yards so there is no need for a driver and worst of all, they barely take care of the course. The green had bump and torn up grass all over which would send your ball in odd directions if it happen to land near there. But it doesn't cost much to play there, which is good, especially for me because i can't play very well, so it's a good place to learn.
As for how i did. Well of a total of 27, i shot a 52. So a +25 doesn't seem to bad for a start, does it?
Happy Canada Day! The first month of my summer begins and i couldn't be more excited. I hope to have some fun tonight whereever i end up going. Did anyone else notice my special Canada Day spartan in Halo 2? Red and the logo was a close to a Canadian flag as possible.
Im going to California
That's right, all by myself. From July 9th - July 26th, i'll be heading over to Glendale to visit my family. I've always wanted to go to California and my family there has been inviting me for years now, so it's great that i have a chance to finally go and see how it is there. One of my cousins is my age and the other is a year younger, so it'll be cool to see what they do for fun as i tag along. It's almost like looking at my life as if i lived there. And i'll be taking pictures that i'll post here when i'm back.
Some of my older summer memories have been watching baseball all summer long. How frustrating is it to watch the Blue Jays every year? Very, they sweep or take 2/3 from the top teams, but get swept or lose 2/3 from some of the worst teams. And inconsistency is killing the Blue Jays and their offense is getting pathetic. Hinski has been doing terrible in June, but we have a few bright spots. Rookies Aaron Hill and Russ Adams are playing good and Roy Halladay looks to be in the lead for another Cy Young and Wells seems to have finally got his swing back. This year, i hope to drive up there to see a few games with my friends.
I know i mentioned how i'd use my journal more often, but i just never had the time to type something like this. I know i'll use it more as the summer goes on.
