Well sense school sarted again, it's been like my testing ground. People can be everything from hateful to annoying, and i think I have handle myself pretty good. On one occasion in P.E. some freshmen thought they would be cool in front of their friends by yelling foul things at me. I didn't acknowledge them and showed no emotion, but inside I was angry. So to let go of my anger, I simply focus my thoughts to others things. I can't remember when they stopped. With asignments and projects, I think of them as Jedi missions.
On one project, I had to make a old map of our town, we were given a list of things we needed on it but most of them had been gone for decades. Well a Jedi friend of mine and myself thought this would be a great opportunty to pratice Jedi investigation. We went to the Library and ask for any old maps that they had. The librarian was really glad that young people had an interest in our towns history even if it was for a projest. She gave us four maps which were all helpful and i got an A for it.
But I was amazed at the history of this area. It was dark, but interesting.

  I finished the Last of the Jedi series yesterday and I felt sad and a bit lonely so I walk my backyard wondering about choices and enjoying nature. After awhile, my little sister and our dog joined me. Later we sparred it got dark and I was able to try new techieques.

  Our pool closed today and the lifeguards had a end of the year party so I didn't really do anything today. Just had fun.

I started as a student janitor at my school to replace my summer job as a lifeguard. It is hard and quite tiring. My feet still hurt. Time is now quite limited to me now, but I help people who forget their stuff or need advice. Why these upset people come the the gym where I clean is a mystery to me though. On another note, a book fair was in the library and they had a book called "The Life and Legend of Obi-wan Kenobi". I spent all of my evening reading it. So far its been good. Also I've been friends with one of seniors sense last year and I found out that he followed the Jedi path too. I wonder if there are any more at my school who chose to remain hidden like I do. I don't tell many people because I don't want to draw any unwanted attention to myself.

  Well, I think I know taht I'm going to stive for in college. I was watching a show on discover channel about the dinosaur mummy that was resently discover and now I want to go into paleontology. I think it would be a interesting profession for one the Jedi path. Traveling around the world and seeing all the different cultures.

    I've also been working out in P.E. and many call me the overachiever. My musles are begining to show my progress. School also has its usaul challenges though with so many people in one place, but nothing new. Plus the weather is cooling down so I won't be able to practice swordsplay very often.

You can still practice with the sword inside David, try getting a couple of padded short sticks (escrima), they don't use as much room as a full-sized sword and are less likely to break things should you accidentally hit them.
