hi everyone

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Sheriff Tricky, Feb 1, 2009.

  1. So not exactly sure how long it has been exactly since I last posted, but I wanted to pop in to say hi and to just update everyone on my life.

    Still teaching English and loving it, except for grading state tests that are going to keep me out of my classroom for three whole days before break :yell:. For those of you that know the issues I had last year in this same school district, this means getting stuck in the same room with the witch (with a b) I had to deal with last year for three days straight.

    Since leaving TT, I have joined a karate studio and already made yellow belt. I am two katas away from advancing to the orange belt (3rd level up).

    I will be coaching boys varsity track at my school this coming spring, the work has already started for that. Especially since the girls varsity coach is resigning to take another coaching job, which leaves me with all the prep work.

    Currently waiting on getting my 2nd tattoo. I will be getting that over my February break. I wish I could show you a pic now but the guy made an original drawing out of the design I showed him, so I couldn't take a copy of it out of the studio for obvious reasons (price shopping). Oh well, I'll show you the finished version. It started out as a ying yang with the tiger and dragon on it with three words in Japanes around it: (faith, balance, and wisdom) but the artist actually turned the tiger and dragon themselves into the ying yang. I am UBER excited about this tattoo.

    I may finally be getting a GF, let's see how that goes. I am just playing things by ear and just letting things flow naturally.

    I feel better than I have about myself and my life than I have in a LONG time. Just ask Trish how I was when we first met...I was a mess!

    I can definetely say I miss you guys, unfortunately not the game. I have been keeping up a little bit on the boards here just reading and talking with Chanty on YIM. If you want my YIM address it is Sherriff Tricky.

    I am glad to see everyone is doing so well and enjoying life as much as I am. Even if I am not on my YIM, it is set up to IM me to my cell...so IM me anytime.
