On a serious note, Kymani Marley was interesting as an opening act, doing three of his father's songs, but also he did an original anti-war song that was very catchy. And yes, I enjoyed Van Halen, but it was not my type of thing. I was the kid that the Van Halen fan beat up in school. I was Waldo.
Good but trying year - Academic probation, and out of probation. More involvement with my church:
Also, Parental concerns trumped the Normal Slam Team, so I went home to Vegas instead of going to NPS.
Truth be that slam is fun, but doesn't hold the top spot on my agenda, nor am I a competitive sort. I am enjoying my poetry classes at ISU, and that for me is where it's at.
Back to Normal in one week.
I like Vegas... but I got a sweetheart back home in Bloomington-Normal. The Midwest is not done with me yet.
I hope to accompany or represent the Normal team in Madison this next year... to continue getting good grades, and to keep on keeping on...
That is good enough for me.
