I’ve realized that even though I have a lot to say, writing is a little more difficult than I thought it would be. So here I am rambling along as I think. There’s so much I could tell you. I’ve have many experiences, some good some bad. I believe I’ve mentioned I used to be good at sports. My main sport used to be football. I played many positions but my favorite was being a running back. Had I been bigger I would have been a fullback. I was fast, agile and I could hit really hard. I was never one to run and dance with people. If I saw you running towards me, I would prefer to run straight at you and mow you over.
Some would say I liked to live a little older than I was. Being 12 years old I was already partying. All my friends were older including my ex. I was in to a lot; weed, alcohol, cigarettes and women took up more time than school and football put together. My friends and I were huge partiers, house parties, parties in the woods and skipping class to go behind the school and smoke.
In no way am I condoning this way of life, but at the time my life was the last thing on my mind. I did crazy things like jump on a train and ride it to my house, all because I didn’t want to walk the 1 1/2 mile to my house. Or the time my mother wasn’t home for three night and made the mistake of leaving her keys to the car at home. It was definitely good on gas because I took it out for hours all three nights and it didn’t get past half a tank. Mind you I did not have a license. So there was this huge river near my house and it was partially frozen over, the water moved to fast so I’m guessing that’s why it didn’t all freeze. So me being young and dumb I decided to try to walk out on the ice. I made it to the middle of the river, dodging open pockets of rushing water. The river was about 80 yards wide so I went a little ways. Luckily and by complete luck I made it all the way back to shore to conclude the absolute dumbest thing I have ever done in my life. Do not try this. You’ll probably die.
Needless to say I’ve done a lot of dumb things in my life. I may be wiser because of it but it probably wasn’t worth almost paying for it with my life to get it. Ramble over
