Classes on online

A prelimary schdule of what your classes is up on edline. Take a look but remember like in life it is subject to change.

Customizing Life

I don't need to watch mtv or vh1 anymore. I don't need someone telling me what to listen or what to watch. I have youtube to watch any music video, and some case movie, I desire. I have made my own channel and it is called Hockeybookavision. I watch the office on dvd or any other show I like off DVR. In fact I don't really need to TV anymore. I watch music videos, friends videos, or education videos(like the history channel but funnier history) on the Internet. I even shop, eat, stretch while listening to music from my i-tunes. If I want ideas for new song I read a magazine.
I started watching a Bobby Orr video and now it is in my rotation. Also the song "Valerie" my Matt Ronson and Amy Winehouse, is a favorite of mine. We can design our media input schedule and not just TV schedule, I mean our own schedule for life. We can design to live life while incorporating everything we like.
I have even more time to be with friends, read and exercise(hockey). That is what I love to pass the time with. Also designing hockey practices for my team is fun to me. We finished 9th out of 16 this summer but we had 6 defenseman and they are all coming back. They are all 7th or 6th graders and we are the only team without any 8th graders playing defense. I don't need tv anymore I have a lot of action in my life already.
Maybe that is why Chambo bought the i-phone and it goes with him on the train to and from Boston everyday. So when he is around he never needs to watch TV or surf the internet.

Movies and School

I finished my classes and have had time for my love, movies. Wall-E was inspirational but cute. Stepbrothers was dumb but fun, Dark Knight was the best movie in the past 10 years.

I don't get too happy or too down anymore when it comes to movies or sports. That is why the Dark Knight was amazing. It made me remember why I like movies.

My sports world got flipped upside down when Manny got traded. If you think this doesn't effect me emotionally you are wrong. I thought I was done being emotional about sports, but I was proven wrong. It was just like with movies something came out of nowhere. Manny and I have history. Manny was there when I was in college. I have been watching his career through everything. I thought he was better than the best. He was unique. I miss people who are unique. That is why I like certain people and I gravitate toward them in a room.

I will miss Manny because he is a symbol of my youth and he is gone. But getting over Manny will not be the toughest thing I will ever do in my life. It was tough to graduate high school, play hockey, leave hockey, get a job, go to college. I realize now everything will pass, thank you Dr. Ansay, and learning who you are is the most important part of my youth and then life. Being young is inspirational, cute, dumb, fun, and the best. And there will always be something you didn't expect, the next big thing.
