Hi all

Sorry I haven't been posting lately---- was quite busy. Today was my last day of tennis camp, and this week I clocked 30+ hours of court time in 85 degrees and humid. It was super fun. Because of camp, I haven't been getting into the Spiral much or anything else. I have some 'newz' for you guys.

Well, starting off with the good news, well, I hit Legendary in wizzies like 2 weeks ago, but didn't announce it. So w00t!!! =)

Then the bad news, sadly, the bad news greatly outweighs the good news. As you all have probably heard, Norway, my second home, where I was 2 weeks ago, was bombed by a terrorist. The bomb shook the city, my dad's office building, and shattered lots of windows. Then to make matters worse, a gunman opened fire dressed as a policeman on a youth camp, killing over 80 kids. When you do the math, compared to the death count (90+) and Norway's overall population, those 90 deaths equaled 7,000 deaths in the USA. That's far worse than the World Trade Center. To top it off, Norway is a relatively open country so this will hit them hard. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the Norwegian people.

The other bad news is that since I hit Legend, I've gotten super bored with Wizzies. There are no goals for me anymore. The community (sorry!!!) seems bland compared to real life. All the drama and stuff just make me shake my head and sigh, because none of this stuff is real. It's a game. Not a life!! This game is what it says, a game, not a life. I hate how what people do and say in this "GAME" affects others so much. Shake it off because it doesn't matter! Sorry for a little rant, had to vent LOL

Well, that's pretty much it. I'll be staying on Wizzies, but might not be doing much. I hope to blog more in the future.

Of Wimby, not Wimpy, and Happy 4th of July!

Hi all,

So I've got some good news, and some bad news, and obviously, I will start with the good news! So if you're into tennis, which I definitely am, you watched the Wimbledon final last night! If it was an epic 4 setter, eventually ending with Novak Djokovic of Serbia winning over Rafael Nadal of Spain. I put my (fake) money on Djoker, and I was right! For a whole 2-3 hours my family and I were glued to the TV watching the match! So far this year, Djokovic has only lost 1, yes ONE, yes UNO matches this year. So congratz Djoker!!!

Now on the downside, one of my very good in-game friends, Morgrim Battlegem, AKA Garrett Dayhand, suffered a horrific injury last night while setting off fireworks last night. A rocket hit the chair next to Morgrim, and he blocked his body with his arm. Morgrim suffered a 3rd degree burn to his upper arm, which means the burn almost went all the way through the skin, muscle, and down to the bone. He spent a night in the ER, so I ask ALL of you My2Cents viewers, please comment below with a few kind words for Morgrim. Please also visit his blog :: :: and comment there for him. All of our best wishes are with Morgrim now. Morgrim tells me he is extremely tired from his injury, but still he goes on and writes a 4th of July post for his blog viewers. So please help a true warrior, Morgrim. Thank you.

Also, happy 4th of July for all you Americans (like me) out there! This special day
celebrates the day our country became free, so be thankful! There are still many countries out there that are not free, so be happy for what you have.

Back in the Spiral...and more!

This is an exciting time for the blog My2Cents. Jr Blogger, now known as Chase has returned to the blog with a passion to post about Wizards and other things important to, travel, experiencing life! I think it's great that Chase has again returned to the Spiral and the blog. Why? Partly because I enjoy his musings and partly because it allows me to also post some thoughts, pictures and observations. Last but not least we enjoy reading your comments and knowing that you follow the blog (tell a friend) is cool.

So, in honor of the return to activity on My2Cents I offer up the picture above. More to come on subjects near and dear. Sr. Blogger.

35 Hours of Camp Later......

Hi all

So I got home about an hour ago from tennis camp here in Norway. I started on Monday, and it was great to get playing again after traveling so much. It was cool to meet new friends, learn the game in a different environment, and brush up on my Norwegian. Am I anywhere close to fluent yet? Nei. That means 'no.' Haha. Here's what we did throughout the week.

Monday:: It's raining, but we play through it for 2 hours. I slip on the baseline (stupid line) and get red clay on my behind. We're all soaked and decide to head in for lunch. We eat lunch and play ping pong. My coach tells me we will go on a 'little' run, and we end up running like 3 miles, and doing sprints soaking wet. When we got back to camp, we were all happy to have time to rest, and then my coach told us to do fitness! We did situps, pushups, and some other things. I'm ripped now *flex* well, I like to think that way at least haha.

Tuesday:: Not raining, in fact searing hot, we're all bacon by the end of the day. Played 5+ hours of tennis. Fun!

Wednesday, Thursday:: Same as Tuesday

Friday:: Last day of camp. We play lots of matches in the morning and doubles in the afternoon. Really fun. After tennis, it starts raining, but we play soccer. It was fun cause we were all like killing each other and pushing each other into bushes and stuff. In the last 5 minutes I tried to tackle my coach, but he picked me up, held me in the air, and shot a goal. Oh well.

Well that was pretty much my week, in Wizzy I leveled up gardening (rank 2 YEAH) did pvp, and found the yardbirds! Pretty good week.
