My trip to Africa

Ok, so I’m supposed to wright something about Africa for school but I’m just gonna copy and paste this excerpt from my journal.

Coming out of my shell
I used to be painfully shy around kids my age. I was slightly better around adults but I still sucked. I would have my moments of courage, but still, painfully shy. It would hurt my performance at my job at the furniture store. I didn’t have to be a super charismatic salesman. No, all I had to do was talk to the customers. But I struggled heavily with that too. Then when we had the whole detour in Atlanta thing happened, I saw Josiah having a smooth confident conversation with an adult. That dude just turned 13. My mind was blown. That’s when I realized I had to step up my game. When I got to Africa I decided to go all out. I would greet people, look em in the eye, make jokes, just have confidence! I had to teach Sunday school and be a worship leader. I got pushed far outside of my social comfort zone and it was the best thing that could’ve happened to me. it feels great to get out of my shell. I just have to keep this confidence when I go home.

It really isn’t all about me
The American mindset is,“It’s all about me, give me what I want, I deserve the best!”. And I wasn’t like that out loud, but subconsciously, that was me. Coming here has showed me that I took everything I have for granted. I don’t deserve anything and it really isn’t all about me. When my WiFi isn’t working it really isn’t the end of the world. The food I ate for dinner was disgusting but at least I had food. Life can get really sucky. I’m very very fortunate to have the life I have. I’m very thankful.

Overall more life experience
I’ve just matured overall. My worldview has expanded greatly. Africa feels like being on a different planet. There’s a world outside of America and it’s crazy over here. I’ve gain so much experience from being in tough situations. I’m just so thankful for the whole opportunity!

April 17 2019 is when I wrote that. Obviously I learned more than just those three lessons but that’s all I wrote. I might write about Africa later, but right now I need to finish school. So this all your getting out of me for today.

Christmas & Cade(Or Cade and Christmas)

November 11 2017, Cade Newell, was born. I probably should have done this way earlier but I didn’t feel like it. I don’t really have a special message for you my little brother. I just hope you have a long eventful life that pleases the Lord. And if you have a short life then at least you’ll be in heaven. Unless your a brat and you end up in Hell. Okay, my New Special Message to is, “Don’t end up in Hell. It’s litt but not in a good way.”. I have another New Special Message for you and it’s probably one the most important thing in the world.:

Your mind is blown right now

 

 

 

 

It’s 17 days until Christmas and I’m still working on my wishlist. I really wanted to get a survival horror game. I’m thinking about getting ‘State of Decay’ or ‘Alien: Isolation’.  I also want a BB Gun

To get you in the Christmas Spirit (Even Though this song has nothing to do with Christmas — OR DOES IT.)

 

 

 

THEORIST MODE ACTIVATED:

If you take the word ‘Official’ from ‘Social Club Misfits – Dive feat. Beam (Official Music Video)’ and put it side by side with the word ‘Feathers’, you can see they have something in common. Something very Strange. They both have EIGHT LETTERS in them! Eight from Stranger Things has a sister named ELEVEN.  11 + 8 = 19.  There are 10 letters in ‘Demogorgan’. 19 – 10 = 9 . There’s 8 letters in ‘Stranger’ and 9 – 8 = ONE (Dats quick maths). ‘One’ and Kb’s song ‘I Am Not The One’ both have the number ‘One’ in common. In Kb’s song He tells us that Jesus is the One. We celebrate The One’s birthday on Christmas! That’s how ‘Social Club Misfits – Dive feat. Beam (Official Music Video)’ has everything to do with Christmas.

Friday Blog (10) Season Finalayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeah

3 Things:

  1. This is my tenth and finale Friday Blog™ for this season
  2. My football season is almost over
  3. Kbs new album dropped yesterday

This is my tenth Friday blog. When I’m on winter break I’ll stop making these and wait ’till next year to pick it back up. I think I’m going to make a spin off of my Friday Blog™ series. It’s gonna be called Thursday Blog or something like that. It’ll be my old blogs from 2016 all the way up to the first Friday Blog™. It could be kinda cool. It could be really boring tho.

 

 

 

I only have one more game left in my football season. Lets compare my predicted stat line I made early in the season to my actual stats (I’ll come back and update my stats when my last game is over).

Predictions:

6 Games                                                                                                                                 10 Catches                                                                                                                             55 Receiving Yards                                                                                                             2 Receiving Touchdowns                                                                                                 45 Carries                                                                                                                           160 Rushing Yards                                                                                                               2 Rushing Touchdowns                                                                                                   1 Interception

Actual stats(Roughly):

3 Games
0 Catches                                                                                                                            0 Receiving Yards
0 Receiving Touchdowns
13 Carries
170 Rushing Yards
3 Rushing Touchdowns (two got called back cuz of  block in the back)
3 Rushing 2-point conversions                                                                                       0 Interceptions

My stats were terrible. I’m probably going to win MVP though

 

 

 

Kb released his new album. It’s pretty good.

 

Also, I am very thankful for God. He’s been spectacular to me and my family our entire lives. Giving us blessing, helping me grow as a Christian, being very patient with us. I could go on and on. One of the more really important things  is If He didn’t give me breathe in my lungs then I wouldn’t be able to do the Friday Blog™. Then again, If I had no breathe in my lungs, I think Friday Blog™ Probably would be the least of my concerns.

 

 

 

 

Welp, its been a pretty good season on Friday Blog™.  ‘Till next time

…. Its CamTheMan!

A Report I Did For School About My Name(Friday Blog 9)

I used Nameberry for my report.

 

Pretty much all my brothers name’s have good meanings to them. For example, The name ‘Christopher’ means Christ follower. The name ‘Caleb’ means devoted to God. ‘Canon’ is the name of a group of books in the Bible. ‘Cade’ means Bishop (according to my mom). ‘Camiryn’ (my name) means bent nose. Also, that’s how you spell it for females. So according to my name I’m a bent nose lady. Yay. How awesome.  

The name Camiryn originated from Scotland. Because the Scottish people thought,”Let’s make a name that means bent nose! Because that definitely won’t make the person who has that name self conscious about their nose every time somebody calls them!” They probably didn’t do that but they might as well have because that’s basically what they did. 

After I was born my parents didn’t know what to name me for two weeks. They finally settled for the name ‘Camiryn’ You might be wondering,”Why did they spell it like that? Isn’t that how you spell it for a girl? Why didn’t they spell it C A M E R O N? Isn’t that the way you spell it for a boy?”. Well reader fellow, it’s not that simple. Oh wait It is that simple! Just spell it the right way! How in the world did you up C A M I R Y N? That’s not even close to how you’re supposed to spell it for a boy. That’s how you spell it for a girl! I’m not a girl! You already chose a name with a terrible meaning and then on top of that you spelled it the girl way. Did I look like a bent nose girl as a baby? Is that why you named me Camiryn? Or is it because you don’t know how to spell? (It’s probably because they didn’t know how to spell considering they attended highschool in Laurel Mississippi) 

So, my name might not bring honor to me and my children and my children’s children, but that’s okay. It doesn’t matter because I’m not like my name. You now the saying,”There’s no “me” in ‘name’.”.  

 

I didn’t put this in my report but I wanted to put this here.

Today I learned I will never be good at basketball. Literally every single time I make a shot is pure luck. I posses no basketball skills whatsoever. It’s very obvious that the Lord did not bless me with the talent of putting a ball in a hoop.  I have a wildly inconsistent jumpshot, no ball handling skills, no layup skills, bad defense — If I was a player on NBA2K my overall would be 0 and I’m not even exaggerating. I’ve been playing basketball for years and I’ve made little to no progress at all. I could go on and on about how bad I am at basketball but I think you get the point. It’s upsetting because I put so much time into getting better at it and instead of getting better, I’ve made pretty much no progress at all. So I’ve decided to stop wasting my time playing basketball and working on something that actually matters. I might play it every once in a while if someone needs a person to run a game but other then that I’m not playing it anymore. I’m not a quitter, I’m just not a finisher(when it comes to playing basketball).

 

EDIT: Okay, I might have been a little dramatic. I’m not actually that bad at basketball and I’m not done playing it.

cuz i aint never lost a game of 1v1 and im the greatest player to ever play the game

Earlier this week, I decided to play the NBA Live 18 demo and it was great! It definitely gave 2K a run for their money. Gameplay wise, 2K has more fluid animations but they also have a lot of annoying ones too. I think 2k has slightly better graphics than Live but Live still looks really good. Live’s face scan is an a whole other level compared to 2K though. They also have a very wide selection of hair styles to choose from, unlike 2K. Live’s music playlist is waaayyy better than 2K’s because they have songs that people actually like. With 2K that is definitely not the case. They haven’t had a good playlist since 2k11. Also Live is cheaper. Live is about 40 dollars and 2k’s cheapest edition is about 60(Their gold edition is 150$). Bottom line, I’ll probably just buy NBA Live instead of NBA2K because live is better and cheaper.

Turns out I’ll be getting more minutes then I thought this season. Timothy, one of the players on my team broke his arm. It was easy to tell he was done for the season after looking at it. It looked very painful. So, without him, we’re down to 13 players on the team. His little brother named Titus, plays for our team too. But since he’s on the smaller side his parents are probably taking him out just to be safe. If they do, we’ll be at 12. In football, you must have 11 players on the field. That means we would only have 1 player on the bench at a time. We’ll be very tired.

This season I’ll be playing RB, FB, FS, Special Teams and QB. I’ll probably just be running wildcat plays when I play QB but it’s still a cool brag right. I’m gonna be pretty tired but on the bright side, I’ll be getting more minutes. Next week I will probably talk about our roster and the week after that I’ll probably talk about something not football related because it’s probably boring just reading about my sports life.

In a few days I will be playing my second year of tackle football with The Panthers. I got a little more experience and little more size. Here are my stats from last year:

6 Games
2 Catches                                                                                                                                 17 Receiving Yards
1 Receiving 2-point conversion
9 Carries
67 Rushing Yards
2 Rushing Touchdowns
2 Rushing 2-point conversions

Not the greatest stat-line out there but I mostly played CB so offense wasn’t really my main thing(I wasn’t a good CB either though lol). Overall last year was a learning year for me. I’m excited to see what I’ll be able to do this season. Here are my predictions on what I think my season stats will look like at the end of the year:

6 Games                                                                                                                                 10 Catches                                                                                                                             55 Receiving Yards                                                                                                             2 Receiving Touchdowns                                                                                                 45 Carries                                                                                                                           160 Rushing Yards                                                                                                               2 Rushing Touchdowns                                                                                                   1 Interception

A few days ago, I finished one of the greatest shows if all time.

Lost.

A show about people who crash land on a very strange island. At first, they’re just trying to find a way to get of they island but as soon as they get of they get of the island, they try to get right back because the island needs them. Which is kinda weird because Islands usually don’t have feelings. But in this show they do. It would take me way too long to try an explain the show because it is a very complex show. Bottom line, I really liked the show. But I finished all 6 seasons. Now I have a show hole the size of of a very large show hole.
