The Importance of Spring; Movin’ On Up

ubaldo.jpgFirst of all, the Astros have won some games.  I am shocked beyond belief.  Once again, the importance of spring training in the grand scheme of things is easily debatable, but it’s significantly more reassuring to see the boys winning than to see the boys losing.

The Rockies are also doing quite well.  Aaron Cook and Ubaldo Jimenez are doing solidly.  I’m unhappy that the Rox let Joe Koshansky go, but the Rangers picked him up, so I’ll see him again in May.

Speaking of May, I get to stop going to class in five weeks.  After that I’ve got a few AP exams, and then I’m free of high school forever.  I don’t know how you guys felt about high school, but I’ve hated it.  Private school is a good thing academically, but sometimes the social aspect of it is difficult, especially if you don’t fit in the mold that everyone keeps trying to squish you into, which I most certainly don’t.  So I’m looking forward to moving on and moving west.

In other news… (not like I was really going anywhere with that anyway)

I chopped all my hair off.  Well, not all of it.  About twelve inches.  It was getting tangled and taking too much shampoo to wash it and two bottles to color it, so I decided to chop.  I’m mailing the ponytail to Locks of Love.
