My first official blog post!  I've put this off way too long, always coming up with an excuse, and somehow 'Tomorrow' kept turning into 'Yesterday'.   I've been back in American for a week officialy, and I must say, it's not at all what I had expected.  Thought I would get right into working, doing whatever random stuff I could find to make some cash and would be in the gym every spare moment.  Well, I haven't done either.  Instead, I've spent my time relaxing, unpacking, cleaning and slowly adding content to this site.  But tomorrow is a new day and I'm making the 1st step and re-joining...

14. Discuss physics with a physicist or professor

My mind races at a million thoughts per second.  I am a problem solver and always have a thousand questions.  School was never good for me as I never had any of my questions answered.  I've read all the books on physics and astrophysics but I still have a lot of unanswered questions.

12. Survive on a deserted island

From as young as I can remember, I wanted to run away and live on a deserted island.  Now, thanks to all the survival shows on the Discovery Channel, I'm confident I have all the tools necessary to last at least a week out there.  Build a shelter, collect coconuts, go fishing and diving for clams and lobsters... May need to take some fresh water, iodine tablets and matches, but besides that I want to try to do it with as little as possible...

11. Win a professional basketball championship

Obviously, winning is one of the biggest aspects of playing basketball.  I've been fortunate enough to always be on winning teams here in America and that carried over to my professional career overseas.  My championships are as follows: WBA Gwinnett Majic 2009/2011  (Georgia) Middlesbrough Lions 2012  (England) Sporting Bet Rebels 2009/2010 (Wet and Dry Season Championships)  (Darwin, Australia)
