Sunday, May 27th I did a reading of my Original Story, "The Tale of Steve Silverado". This was probably the most important presentation in my life so far. I have been planning this day for the past 6 months. I have a terrible time with public speaking and it was very difficult for me to do. I practiced very hard and created a powerpoint presentation of the whole story. This past Thursday, I did a dry run of reading the story and discovered that the entire presentation was a bit too short.

This past weekend I broke my ankle skateboarding. I did it trying to land an Ollie impossible on flat ground. I landed the trick once, but when I tried it again, my back food that was spinning the board was slightly tilted inward. As I began to land my feet on the board, the back foot still tilted inward landed very hard first on the tail of the board followed by my other foot.

At the same time, my day job has been very busy also because of the holidays coming up. Honestly, my job isn't really that
I have been so depressed lately. This past week hasn't been too good for me. My last grandmother on my father's side died last Saturday night on Halloween and our Chihuahua, Pepper, died this past Wednesday. On top of it, I got a terrible head cold the end of last week into the weekend. Luckily, I was able to see a doctor today and get some medicine.
