In my English class we recently had a brawl. Before you assume their was a massive fight in a school, let me clarify that a brawl is a form of debate.
I found it quite beneficial for several reasons. First of all, it helped me concoct my own ideas about ethical dilemmas in today’s world. One of the questions was one my group thought of where we said is it okay to enact vengeance on someone who wrongs you. I personally am I believer in karma (the belief that whatever you do comes back to you; good or bad) so using that logic I feel like that you have the right and the RESPONSIBILITY to enact vengeance.
If I had to describe my blogging experience I would compare it to flying a kite. I’m not sure if this is just me but whenever I attempt to fly a kite it takes me forever to get the thing in the air, but once its in the air its a whole new struggle, keeping it there, but once I complete these to Herculean tasks its smooth sailing and nothing but smiles. When I try and start a blog it takes me what seems like an eternity to come up with an idea and then I spend the remainder of my lifetime finding a creative or unique way to articulate the idea.

I just finished reading this particular book and I found it to be one of the best books I have ever read. Personally, I thought that it was going to be super bad (because the book started out really slow and because of the fact that it was written in the mid 1800’s), but it gets really, really good as you read on (kind of like the Lord Of The Rings). Alexandre Dumas uses descriptive language and captivating organizational skills to keep the reader reading. Dumas also wrote The Three Musketeers, but I have yet to read that.
I remember my first memory (weird line). T’was a hot day and my mom had forbidden me from going outside. Realizing that I couldn’t go and play with my friends, I settled for the next best thing. My brother. I was running through my house in Nepal as my one year and nine months old brother was chasing me on his chubby legs. He tripped and fell on his face and I found super funny. And since it was caused by himself he did not cry. (Side-note: have you noticed that toddlers do not cry when they hurt themselves and they think there is no one around to console them? If someone is in the vicinity that they hurt themselves in, then they will bawl their eyes out.) I went over to him laughing and to check if he was alright. He was, thankfully, so I didn’t get in trouble for ‘hurting’ my brother.

Running, more specifically distance running, has always been the sport that I have done. The first time I was submerged into the fantastic world of running was in my 8th grade year. Track tryouts had come and I tried out for sprints. I was above average and I made the sprinting team, but as events followed I did not hear the sprint coaches call my name when the sprinters and distance runners were being separated. As fate would have it, I was introduced to distance running. Right away it was apparent that I was good at it. I would pull away from fellow runners during workouts. I would run faster in races. My distance running career had started.
What hero is the coolest? They kill, hunt, betray, herd, fight, and kill once again. Cowboys! Cowboys are arguably one of the coolest “action heros”.I believe my first encounter with a cowboy in a movie was Woody, from Toy Story. That seems weak, yes, but Woody does kick some tail and always gets the job done. Woody’s pretty cool. He has the right amount of things in his life: romance, friends, and a friendly competitor.
