Everyone i have told NewTexas this and I want to tell everyone else that i have a disability it's well i stare off into space i can lose focus on what I'm doing and i sort of do stupid dances.
So you space out and are a terrible dancer? Don't worry I still am a terrible dancer anyways I need to know BT if theirs something broken on the March madness page cause I have 56 points but is says I'm third? Oh and you should check it again cause I swear I put down Arizona winning but it's seems to have a system malfunction as it says this team named Xavier won? Strange isn't it.
Wow, today was one of the best days EVER! I'm very happy about it :P
Spill it Indian Empire! We all like happy stories.
Lewisville Texas, Sarah, if stupid dances were a crime, we would be in prison for life! Worst dancer ever!
Yeah Gig em Aggies, we think that Professor X dude shocked a lot of peeps!
Anybody watching the Ultra Music Festival from Miami this weekend? There is some decent stuff so far and it is streaming live on YouTube and Be-At.tv. Good stuff if you are into EDM and or House.
Happy Friday Y'all!
Welcome to all the new Texans!
Okay, I guess I will.
Started this afternoon when I went to go pick up my new glasses. We brought KFC home with us, when a friend noticed me coming home and asked me to come outside. I finished eating and then did so. It was about 4 PM at this time. I was outside with a friend the friend brought over. About 15 minutes later, the friend who invited me outside had to go inside, leaving my with the friend he brought along. As soon as we introduced ourselves, they said "we used to hang out like 5 years ago" and I'm like "holy cow, I remember now! we haven't spoken in so long!" One of the first things they remembered be for was doing the weekend weather in elementary school. So yeah, I was throwing football with them for like an hour in my front yard, discussing what new developments we had since we last spoke in 2012. Turns out, we had like a ton in common. We watched the same TV shows, liked the same sports, and both liked history. Yeah, I saved the number, and told them they could just come ring my doorbell like whenever.
What proceeded next was a big jumbled mess of friendships coming into play. A friend of their's came over and we started tossing the football three ways. We then went to play basketball over in their driveway, when a friend of their's showed up. It turned out that I talked to there brother everyday on the bus about the weather. They ended up facetiming them, and then they came over. we played a game of basketball there, with me and the one who just came over against the 3 others. My team managed to win 22-6 after I kept draining long shots and being able to go inside for the dunk constantly, getting 18 points on my own.
More and more people started to facetime others, as if I was a neighborhood celebrity, and I'm like "you gotta be kidding me, how is this even happening?" More people started coming over, and it's like "whoa" :P
Then, you know, that's when it ended, but I had a fun time. Definitely the best hours of 2017 so far.
Their not like actual dancers im good at dancing but what I mean is like i jump randomly and I move myself up and down repeatly.
