So what I didn't post in my last journal because I would be another page long was about the injury to my knee. So first semester last year(junior year) I was playing flag football for an Intramural team and i was going to catch a ball and some kid covering me tripped and landed across the side of my knee with his shoulder. I sat out that game. The next game it was fine when i was running and making cuts but the minute i jumped it blew out. So then I went to Health Services (UNH's shitty attempt at a doctors office) and the lady there said that I had probably sprained my LCL (a ligament on the outer side of the knee) and that I should refrain from activities for a few weeks until it feels better. Well Christmas break had passed and I hadn't done anything on my knee so I started some light lifting and some lunges and shit like that. Then when I felt it was pretty good I played a pick up game of basketball with my buddy Mike. That was fine. Played again the second day..BAM, my knee blows out again. So I go back to Health Services and this time they give me a doctor that knows about knees and she said I had probably torn both my ACL (inside the knee, prevents the knee from buckling and the Femur from sliding off the knee joint) and LCL. So I go get MRI and yup, my ACL is torn and my LCL is partially torn. Go see a specialist and he says i require surgery within two weeks. Surgery was scheduled for February 14th, oh wow Valentines day. My girlfriend loved me.So surgery was fun, very nervous when I got to the hospital at 6am but It went well. When I woke up after surgery they had numbed my whole right leg so I couldn't move it at all. Probably the weirdest feeling ever. They had me go to the bathroom and my right leg was dragging behind. So they had attached a brace to my leg that kept it locked straight and had me on crutches and a catheter stuck in my groin that was attached to a ball of pain meds. When I got home I slept so much it wasn't even funny. I probably slept 18hours of the day and was couch ridden most of the time. My girlfriends Samantha made every meal for me, helped me go to the bathroom and helped me bathe. She was my backbone for two weeks. All of this occurred while I was at school so I missed two whole weeks of school. It sucked and I had a ton of work to make up but my teachers kicked ass and didn't care how late i turned it in. After two weeks, I started rehab and at first it was all about getting motion back in my knee. But I did that great. Funny thing, at the same time two of my other friends had ACL surgery so all three of us were experiencing the same but also different experiences with surgery. So about 4 months after surgery(today) I am getting there in my recovery. I am no longer in Physical therapy, and I have to see the doctor in another 3 months. I am playing softball now, and starting a jogging, endurance, and strength training for my knee. The doctor cleared me from physical therapy and am on my own to rehab myself. The bills have amassed(the surgery costs 25,000) and it sucks but oh well. So That is what I also wanted to put in my previous entry but as you see it was a full entry within it's self.

God is love, Rev Run.

Well hello there. I don't know how many people read my journals so I don't think many people will be disappointed that I haven't posted one in over a year. Oh well. Any who I am now a Senior at the University of New Hampshire. I am studying Recreational Therapy. Its a very great and rewarding major. I plan to work with children with disabilities and set up after school programs for them and their family. I really like the idea of inclusion when it comes to families and disabilities. I think its important for their family to share experiences with them in both fun times and bad times. I worked with a great organization, Northeast Passage, this year and it gave me a great look into the therapeutic world. They are just fun loving people who enjoy what they do. School has been a big eye opener for me. Freshman year i was horrible, missing classes, not studying and all the shit a freshman shouldn't do. I changed majors three times since junior year and hated everyone of them I was in. after sophomore year I had a 2.35 GPA which is crap for me. I don't expect to get a 4.0 but i know i could do better then 2.35. So Junior year rolled around and I needed to declare a major and I had took a class in RMP department so I decided I would apply for that. The only thing stopping me was my GPA. They want a 2.5 and so I was worried if i was going to get into it. I did luckily after some convincing of the faculty. Since then I had the two best semesters at UNH GPA wise and just active wise. I got involved with Northeast Passage and got involved in some of the work they do and I really enjoyed it. The stuff I was learning in the classes I was applying right there on the spot. None of my other majors had done that yet so I knew that Recreation Management and Policy was my department and Therapeutic Recreation was my new Major.

Social wise it was a big change too. I moved out of the dorms into an on-campus apartment. All the dorm buddies that I had moved too and so our bonds were not that strong and we split. I lost about eight friends that Ive had since freshman year in the dorms. I've thought about it but realized that they aren't really the people I hang out with. Freshman camp is still great. Still supplying me with friends so that's a great thing. The first years were awesome this year and they totally rocked out expectations. Met a lot of new people and they are just a great bunch of people to have on your side. I have about 60 close friends that I know I can ask for anything in a time of need or talk to about anything and they would be there for me. I love them to death.

Samantha K. Saunders it my girl. We've been dating since October 26th, 2006. We are a very happy couple. We don't argue that often and if we do we settle it right there and don't let it bother us. We have lots of fun just doing whatever. We hang out at her place, watch House like non-stop, we go out to eat, hang with her family, pretty much whatever we do it's going to be fun. I love her and she is a great thing for me. She is the stability I need in my life. I feel that if I didn't have her I would be a very wild child and running around everywhere around UNH. She makes sure that I'm keeping up on all my shit. She even unknowingly keeps checks on me because she is such a good student it rubs off on me so if she's studying usually ill be there with her studying or doing some type of school work. Its been a 1yr and 7month with her, by far the long relationship I've had. Before her was Ali K. and we only dated for like 6 months, and almost half of those I was away at college.

That is whats new with me. I will probably write another entry very soon because my job is boring and this is a good time killer.

In the words of a great man:

God is love, Rev Run. - Rev Run

I will give some background info before I get on with the point of this. I lived in Florida between the ages of 10-18. I did grades 5-11 there. I had made some pretty close friends. I moved at the end of 11th grade to Vermont. I did all of senior year and then went to college at UNH. Its been 4 years since I have been to Florida and I missed it dearly.

So on May 23rd i went to Florida to see my best friend Amber graduate high school. Amber is one of my best friends in the world. I stayed at her house and I had a blast. I got up every morning around 8 to help feed her 5 horses and 5 chickens. It was good. I hate horses so it was interesting. Her family came for her graduation and stayed 5 days and it was a blast. Her grandfather looks like George Clooney and talks like Rocky. Her whole family was great. Me and Amber as described best are like Biscuits and Gravy. We mesh together really well. We could just be doing nothing, such as driving, and be having a blast. But anywho, we had a grad party for her and that was fun. We bought like 40lbs of chicken and cut it and then made like 3 types of salad. My other best friend Sean showed up and that was great too. Sean is my boy and it was like i never left. We talked and caught up on the good 'ol days and the times i missed when i moved. But yeah that was basically my vacation, which was amazing. The night before I left, Amber and I stayed up all night and talked. It made me wonder why i left Florida when I had everything there for me. It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make and i probably wouldn't be able to make it again. It just made me think about everything that could have been and just wonder how my life would have turned out if i stayed down there. We literally stayed up all night and i think we took a quick nap at like 330 before we had to be up at 430. When I got on the plane, it was hard. I didn't want to leave and I cried on the plane. I got chocked up so much and had that hurt/sad feeling in my stomach and throat. I had a hard time hiding my emotions in the airport and on the plane. It was like saying goodbye all over again and again one of the hardest things to do.

I plan on going back to Florida in Mid-August to see Amber and Sean again. Now that I saw them I don't want to not see them anymore. I miss them terribly and wish that we could live closer to each other. I am proud of both of them for become two great people and accomplishing so much in their life so early in it. They are both going to be very successful in their lives and I can't wait to see the things they accomplish.

I love them both with all of my heart and they are two of the best people I could ever know in my life.
Thank you both for being the same friends I left 4 years ago and for being my friends.

So yeah its been a while since I've last written in this. I just don't find that much time anymore. Between school, Freshman camp and my girl friend there is just not that many hours in the day. But anyways things are great. Samantha and I are coming up on 4 months. Its only 4 months but it seems like much longer. Probably because we practically live with each other so everyday is spent with her, but I like it that way, so things are great. Freshman Camp has just started up. 5th week I'm pretty sure. The new 1st years are pretty amazing. They outnumber the 2nd and 3rd years 20 to 16. My littles are pretty bitchin. Shoutout to M-Zergs and CoSexy. But so far they haven't gotten a taste of the real camp yet. They have only seen the wild and crazy side, not the sensitive side yet. That will be coming shortly. School is alright. Classes are going as expected. Spanish is killing me just because its a lot of busy work daily and I am horrible at languages. Chemistry is surprisingly good. Got a C on my first exam. The teacher is what makes it worth while tho. He makes me want to learn it. History is pretty good. A lot of reading and in class all we do is listen to lecture and take notes. The teacher can sometimes be funny so its not always bad. My first RMP class is pretty sweet. Recreation and Leisure in society is fun. Its easily seen as a gen. ed. class and is just an easy A. You hear a lecture two times a week from a teacher that is all about the outdoors. None of my classes are giving me big trouble yet, but i have only had a big test in 1 of the 4 classes. So it should be interesting to see me come finals time. And also im changing my career. At first I was in looking to get into Exercise Science. But its too demanding and hard to get into. So I am looking to get into Recreation Therapy. It would sorta be like Rehab but with the use of sports and other recreational activities. I think it will be fun to see where it takes me.
Well I hope you have enjoyed this. Hopefully I will update it more for any of my readers out there. (Cause there's so many of you...but thank you)

So this has been a pretty crazy middle of the month. Last Thursday (10/12/06) I got to hang out with some freakin awesome people (Samantha, Brenden, Ryan and three random girls) and it was a good thursday. Well Abby had just been admitted into the hospital so Sam was pretty sad. I don't really know how to handle death or sever sickness. Im not really good at words when it comes to that kinda stuff. But yeah the following week was fun. Besides trialing matters with Aisling the week was good. Me and Sam started talking more and shes a really fun person to be with. We have started hanging out more and fun stuff like that. We enjoy each other's company or at least i enjoy hers. I don't really know tho. Sometimes there's awkward silence between each other and we just look at each other with smiles on painted on our faces, waiting for someone to say some thing but no one ever does. I don't know if that's a good sign or a bad sign but I don't really care for now. My work load had been increased both in school and at work. I've been working like 25 hrs/2weeks which for me is alot during school. I am kinda struggling in chemistry but it's just because i didn't get it from day one. My other classes are pretty easy though so I am enjoying that. Both my flag football teams and soccer teams are over with so I am kinda relieved by that. It was three sports teams a week and it was kinda bringing me down. I enjoyed the sports and the people, it was just alot of time spent. I am not doing volleyball anymore partly because I severly sprained my thumb and my shins were starting to ache every day but also I was just not enjoying it. I love volleyball but being on that competative of a team was just not for me. For someone that has never played organized volleyball it was a little too intense for me. But I am doing Broomball. I have not really been to the gym and it is easily catching up to me. I have started running again and hope to go on many runs, hopefully dragging sam along with me. With that and the combination of situps and pushups i'm hoping to be in shape again. But other then that life is life.

So I haven't written in this thing for a while. I apologies to all those fans out there reading this. Anyways, school is off to a rocky start. I got some really challenging classes and my chemistry professor doesn't know what he's talking about sometimes. I've made really cool friends on my floor and I find myself hanging out with them more then I do my FC friends. I figure I devote my life to FC second semester and a little time away will make the time with them that much better. Last year I clung to FC like it was an IV or something. It just feed me the things I needed to feel good at college. Don't get me wrong it still does, but now I have new friends and I like spending time with them to. But yeah FC is still the Kick ass bomb diggity it was when I left. Now we have Richard and Anna as our Co-Directors and I am going to miss last years Co's and Ex's. They totally made camp amazing and everything I could have ever imagined. (thanks guys,love you all so much). But yeah I just want this semester to be over with and I want to start getting into the FC crazieness again. Oh how I miss it. There are still no ladies in my life...just so good friends that are there for me.

So the summer is coming to a close. This is my last week of work. I am so relieved that I wont be working 45-50 hours a week but instead go to school where I can relax when I choose to. So that's what I'm looking forward to. Along with my new roommate Jeff. Him and I are pretty active people and we both share similar intrests. I just dropped off a bike at SkiRack for repairs. It's an old Schwinn that has alot of rusted out parts (chain and gear cables) but is able to be fixed for good riding conditions for only $130. So pretty much it's going to equal Jeff and I biking alot when we get back. Anyways, so yeah school is coming close. I'm getting more and more excited to go to Freshman Camp and see all the new freshman that i get to hang with. I'm kind of scared to go though because alot of things have gone down this summer that is going to change the way people are towards each other. I have grown distant from alot of people. And what I mean by this is that I have not talk to alot of UNHers this summer and partly because they are busy and alot of them don't get my calls. I have grown pretty close to Sarah. We talk often...i mean not obsesive often but enough to keep in touch. We shot the shit about everything. Jen V. too is another I have talked with this summer. She is a great gal. She is so funny and so energenic. I love talking with her. Along with them i have talked to Kerri aka my wife. Her and I have had a pretty good talk about things and I have tried to help her by listening to whats been going on. She is also energetic and very sweet. So these are the three core people that I have kept in touch with. I'm trying to find those friends that I know I can trust and openly talk to and can depend on for a friendship. I am not intending this so say that people I haven't talked to this summmer arnt any of those things, because they are, i am simply pulling these three people out because I feel I am the closes with.
So I still have to go shopping at Wal-Mart for some school things. I need a tad, but have alot of things I picked up from last year still. It's more about unpacking all my things I brought back and sorting through those and deciding what I need and what I don't. I am hoping to not take so much with me now that I know what I need. So that's pretty much most the things that have been going on lately. I hope I didn't bore you with my long journal. Once I get typing its hard for me to stop.

So it's 1:32am on July 22. I am going to Canada at 5pm. I'm wicked excited and really pumped. I am going with my friends Dan, John, Kaitlyn, Kim, Jen, and Alex. We have all been friends since high school except for Kim who we all have just met this year. This trip is going to be the highlight of my summer, which is good and bad. Good because its going to be E-mazing, but bad because I should be doing more this summer. I am going to control my drinking up there since i have a known problem of drinking too much and blacking out and bootin' everywhere. I can't be doing that in the clubs so I'm only going to drink enough so that I get really buzzed. I am also going up to Canada with three girls that can dance really good. And if any of you reading this know me...i can dance good and love to do it. So i acutally have to be some what sober to do it good. Besides some other few people, these people I'm going up to Canada with are going to be my friends for life that live in Vermont. I'm not that close with alot of people in Vermont except for Dan, Alex and John. Those are the three main guy friends that I have and I am glad to be so close to them. I would rather be close to those three then have like 20 friends that don't really know me. Well all I have to say is that I'm going to Canada and it's going to be an awsome fucking time and I am so ready to hit the clubs. But I'm off to bed so I can rock out with my cock out in the morning.

Take care readers and thank you for actually being interested in what goes on in my life, you are devoted fans and I love you all.

Tonight was a late night...but first lets begin with the day. Work at the Mobil as usual, 8-5. Very busy due to a hot, sunny day. I worked pretty hard but was really tired and low on energy all day. I've been working about 40 hours a week since summer started. I have pulled shifts as long as 14 hours and no shorter then 9. I work almost Monday through Friday with maybe a day off in there somewhere. I also babysat last Saturday for one of my sisters co-workers. I played video games with her 6 year old son for 8 hours and she paid me $70. I figured it was good money. Clayton likes me and wants me to babysit him more. Sadly I only have a month left of summer and only 3 more times to sit him. Anywho,Marc Cooke's birthday was today so the Rice gang and I went to LongHorn Steak House and celebrated his birthday with some good ol' reminiscing. It was pretty good except alot of the people that where there I didn't grow up with or go to school with so I am seen as the outcast at times, so there fore i get little notice within the group. But there were two people (John and Kaitlin) that i knew so i talked the night away with them. We had good conversation. Denver drove me home in his Z-23 and was going like 115mph in a convertible with the top down. I felt like i was going to die if we hit the littlest bump in the road. When I got home my ex-girl friend and current friend was having a rough night and needed someone to talk to. So I called her and we talked about some of the things she is going through and I tried to give her advice but it was a very hard situation, but one I have found myself in many times. Along with some good advice we also just talked about life and what we have done after high school. She still seems like the same Carly I dated back in high school, just more wiser. She is very chill and relaxed, thus why we got along so good. She is a great friend and I am glad I got to catch up with her and talk. I have put off calling her for too long for some unknown reason but I called today and was happy with the outcome. I hope the best for her and her current boy friend Kyle and wish them luck in whatever future unravels for them.

Home has finally stepped it up a bit. I have upgraded from no internet to Wireless internet. I have went from no cell phone to a nice cellular piece. I'm making that money honey, and working like a mad man. I got this new babysitting gig every saturday 10-6. Today was my first day. Her son who is 7 just played video games all day. I fed him Dominos pizza and played video games with him. I got $70. I offered her to pay me 50 but she said 70 so i was happy. Then i got home and opened my cell phone bill...$185. I shit my pants...literally, i went and changed my boxer-briefs. but my sister explained it was for the half month that i connected it and next month. So im playing catch up on my bill. Thats cool with me. So my friend Sarah called me today...made me very happy. I love when my friends from college call me and talk, especially her. She is really the only person that makes time to talk with me these days. I've called a few but I always get the "im too busy right now, i'll call you later". They don't tell me that later means like weeks or never! But yeah tomorrow is the World Cup 2006 Championship game with France playing against Italy. I want France who has one of the worlds best strikers Theire Henrey on it. I'm calling it 2-1 France. For now I bid all my readers (if there is any) adue.
