The Gift Game

Okay, so my family and I play a gift game where we all buy a gift (theirs usually a set price). We wrap them up and everything and then we put them under the tree. We draw numbers and starting from 1, then # 1 picks a gift and then 2 and so on. We are allowed to steal gifts if its or tun, it's really simple but much enjoyed by my family. So this year theirs only like 5 people playing, It's a little. Me and my sister (Amber) were talking on the phone she said we need to play the game over skype. I decided that next year we would drop the amount ten bucks ( for shipping). Then play the game over skype with the whole family. I want comments with opinions.

" I think it's broke"

Today I had a wrestling match at carroll. Their were five schools their not including mine. I had the first JV match and pinned the guy in the first period. Then everyone else on my team wrestled and everything. My next match was coming and the coach told I was wrestling l 10 pounds up. Okay, I thought I can do this then I got out their with butter flies in my stomach >I wrestled as hard as I could. We went back and fourth for the first period. Then I started to get mad I did anything I could to tick him off I shuved his head as heard as could. Finally got him out of bounds. We both stood on the line I was as mad as ever the official blew the whistle, and almost without hesiation I shot. I jammed my right thumb really hard and I almost thought it was broke. However I got as far as I was and I had no plans of stopping. Doing my best to get him down with my left hand I pinned him. I got off the match and it was getting unbearable . I said " Coach I think it's broken". He told me to go see the trainer, he said that it looked broke and that I should proly get X-rays. My dad was pretty reluctant but after a couple hours we got permission to leave and went to Redi-Med. They X-rayed my hand and found out my thumb was broke clean in half between the second and third joint. It was displaced about a centimeter so the doctor was going to have to numb it and manually push it in place. A he gave me a shot numbed my hand then had the nurse hold my wrist and he tried to jam my thumb back into place. He got my cast on and everthing and I went to get X-rays. The results weren't great but better. The bone was still slightly displaced so he took my cast off and tried again at this point the pain kiler was just starting to wear off. I could tolerate the pain it wasn't to bad while hold me thumb in place he started to put the cast on. I got it X-rayedd again and it looked almost perfect. So he finished putting my cast on and sent me one my way.

What Was I Thinking :-(

The truth is I wasn't thinking, at all. I've made a alot mistakes in my short lifetime, but this one tops them all. A kid in my class brought a fire cracker that explodes on impact to school (If you can see where this is going). He said he was going to throw it in the ag shop (practical joke right). Due to my sense for thrill I told him I'd give him a couple bucks for it then I was gonna make it pop. Well I whimped but another person told me they'd do it, I handed him the firecracker. He threw it, it exploded , teacher got mad. Where'd you get that he asked, expecting only a lecture he said, Trent gave it to me. Well he should've expected more. The teacher said we where both getting referiils, Me for bringing it to school, and my friend for popping it. I tryed to be a good friend but I couldn't do it, so I told him who I got it from and the person denied it. He emptied his pockets in proof but the teacher saw particles from the fire cracker he picked them up and examined them. He new thats where the fire cracker came from so my teacher called the principle and we where all three escorted to the office. We were taken into different rooms where we had to fill out paper explaining excactly what happend. They came and talked to us searched us (This is where they found my phone and ipod) then discused our punishment. I was to finish the rest of the day in ISS( In School Suspension) and the all of the next day, and I got a three hour thursday night school for my phone and Ipod. The person who threw it had to serve the rest of the day in ISS and two more days of it. I do not know how much trouble the person who brought it in was in. However I didn't see him the rest of the day I'm assuming he got OSS ( Out of School Suspension), Or case. Case is where a police stands over you and your not allowed to do anything but work , You have to pack your lunch, and your parents must take you to or from school.

My parents most likely would not aprove of me discusing this publicly. However I disagree this opened my eyes alot It showed me that in order to succeed in life you have to not only want to but work to achieve success. I learned that irrational decisions cost alot, for instance My reputation, My parents reputation, and My entire family's reputation. I learned that if dont come to the realization that it's a tuff world I won't succed in life unless I change my perspective on life . I have now know I have to practice, Dicsipline, Self Control, Persistance (as in knowing when to and when not to persist), Making the right desicions, and work to acheive acedemic success. I now understand that all the lecturing and discipline that I have received from my family was only for my benefit. I now know that they weren't trying to change me only to make me understand that in order to benefit in life that change is always neccesary. This whole ordeal hit me hard and I feel that I have learned alot from it.
