Kevin walked down the hall. The hall was dim, but he didn't care, he was on his way to 3rd hour study hall and there was a large crowd of people around doing the same. Kevin enjoyed school, when he was alone, but he never understood why people had to learn things like Art, Design, Building and all that boring stuff. He didn't like study hall, he had always wanted a fun class like Sculpture or Stage craft, but it wouldn't fit his schedule.
He was going down the hall when he spotted his arch-enemy, Micheal Pecker. He quickly took a U-Turn and started walking the other way, but it was too late.
"Hey Butt Brain, Get over here!" Shouted the loud oaf of a man. "I said get over here! Don't make me follow you!"
Kevin was in a panic, this man was the meanest guy in the universe. As far as he was concerned he could fall in a 30 foot hole and Kevin wouldn't care. He got about 100 yards away before Micheal grabbed his shoulder and stopped him. Great, now i have to deal with this dude. thought kevin, Why didn't i go the long way, now i have it coming.
Micheal studied Kevin for a moment, waiting to see if he would run or say something.
When Kevin did nothing, Micheal make his voice known, "Whats wrong? Don't wanna talk to your pal?"
I took a deep breath, knowing that if i just went with it, it would be painless, mostly. "No, i just have to go to the restroom so i was going that way." I was sweating, i had to be, i was so nervous i thought i would die.
"Well theres just one problem with your story." I waited as he studied me slowly. "I was standing next to the restroom and because you lied to me, you got it coming to you." I was beyond nervous at this point, i wanted to eat some spinach and punch him through the wall, but i knew i couldn't. This isn't a cartoon, i would get pounded and have to live with it, everyday. "Do you want it in the gut or in the face? I prefer the gut since it leaves less evidence, but it's up to you."
I backed up against the wall before i spoke, Micheal tailing me the whole way. "I would prefer that you and I be friends and not fight like this, because i see it as pointless. And very painful as well"
He laughed a loud, hard laugh before replying to me in a smug tone. "I'm sorry Kevin, but not even your clever jokes are getting you outta this. Now hold sti--" He was interupted by a shove to his shoulder.
"Leave that man alone or i'm gonna have to make you!" It was my best friend, Zeke Dove, the coolest man in the world who was always funny and a great friend. "Step off and pick on someone your own size!" Micheal was shocked, but i knew he wasn't scared. Zeke was a great friend, but nobody scared Micheal, not even the teachers.
"Well, what do we have here? A lone hero here to save the world, one shove at a time." He laughed again, i hated it when he laughed, that meant he was happy.
"Ya, i'm a lone hero and i'm here to warn you. I heard about what you did to my friend last time and i won't stand for it happening again. Your a pig, a filthy, nasty pig and i hope you get what you got coming! Now leave my friend alone or you got trouble." I was so happy that Zeke had seen me in the hallway, i woulda had a big stomach cramp otherwise.
"Ok, that's it, i'm not taking this from some punk kid trying to be mr. hero." He walked over to Zeke at a quick pace before he swung a hard left. Zeke grabbed his fist and twisted it backwards. He held it as Micheal let out a painful shriek. At this point we had gathered a small audience and they were thrilled to see a fight. Zeke then stomped on his toe and punched him square in the face.
Micheal felt that as he flew in the air onto his back. Zeke walked over to Micheal and stepped on his hand, with full force it seemed. "Now i said to leave my friend alone. If you don't, we might need to have another talk. Do you understand, Micheal?" Micheal just make noises of pain. Zeke looked annoyed, like he wasn't getting the answer he wanted, he put more force on Micheal's hand. "Do you understand?!"
Micheal was now shrieking in pian, "I UNDERSTAND!! PLEASE STOP!! MY HAND!!!" Zeke let Micheal's hand go and Micheal jumped up, staring at his hand.
He then focused on Zeke. "Ok bub, your gonna get it next time." Zeke looked like he was between bored and annoyed as he listened, he then shifted to what looked like anger.
"Ya? Anytime! Just leave my friend Kevin alone and you got no problems, from me at least. Now get outta here!" Micheal took a long, cold look at Zeke before he quickly rushed away from the scene, probably going to the nurse. As Micheal passed me he glared and whispered "Watch your back!" then he dissapeared. I Then focused on Zeke as he walked over to me.
"You ok? that butt wont be messing with you for awhile." said Zeke. I was so relieved, i don't think i had any more problems from him today.
"Ya, thanks buddy. Now i gotta get to class, im late." I rushed away taking my things with me. I was glad i had a good friend to stand up for me, because it gave me a little more confidence. Today may of had a scary moment, but that wasn't the last i would hear from Micheal Pecker ...

I have some sad news, My grandma died today, She died and now all i have are memories. Even though i have good memories, its still very sad. I loved my grandma so much. I'm not the kind of person that gets emotional or mushy, so when i heard she was dead, i didn't believe it at first, but the look on the face across from me told me otherwise. It then sunk into me like an a anchor falling into the ocean, my grandma had died. What was i going to do with my grannda gone? It's so .... unreal. It doesnt feel normal being without her. I loved her more then i thought i did. I had always known God was real, but never actually gotten any further then that. Knowing that she is with God, the creator of heaven and earth, gives me security in her future. I hope that i can find God myself and really become a true Christian. I have always tried to grow close to God, but never felt anything or heard anything. I know not to listen with my ears, but with my spirit and i dont really know how to do that. I know thats really sad, but i dont think God makes exceptions. I know he's a loving, kind, and compationate God, but i have to actually know God and have a relationship with him to get into heaven, right? Well, I know that my grandma is in heaven, so i know she's going to be happy eternally. This wasn't the blog i expected to be posting, i wanted to post a silly blog about a story i made up with my buddy George today at lunch, and i intended to, but my grandma dying kind of changed that ... I am sad that my grandma died and left earth, but glad that she entered into the kindom of heaven tonight. I miss you already grandma.

Ok, So i was online looking up cool stuff i want online at Best Buy, Wal Mart, Taco Bell (Yes, I love my taco's) and other online stores, but could clearly see i could not afford anything i wanted or needed. Now to make things easier for you, A Want is a desires that you can live without, but (sometimes) choose to put in the front of your list. A Need is a something used for survival, to keep you alive. Now do we need a brand new Wii or Xbox? Will it help us to survive? Maybe you'll be happy for a few hours, but it wont give you clean clothes and it certainly wont feed you (though we all wish otherwise)! Now the way i see it, you need money to buy the Wants and Needs in your life. As i've mentioned before, you won't get money unless you have a job (or sit on a street corner in dirty clothes with a sign saying you lost your job and have 3 kids and a dog). I still have no job other then my paper route so i only get around $25 or $35 (if im lucky) a month since i have a very small route. Even if everyone on my route got the paper (that would take a miracle), thats 146 people, then i would recieve over $150/Month. Now thats a big difference. But people just don't like reading the newspaper anymore. Bad to what i was saying, Wants are just small items that will keep us entertained for a small period of time like a DS, Candybar, TobyMac CD, ect... Needs are items such as Clothing and Food. Now Food may be gone quickly since it takes longer to buy and prepare then it does to make, bake, create, ect... but it keeps you full, focuced, and most important, alive! Clothing just keeps the general public from staring at your beautiful body (cuz we all thing of ourselves as beautiful ... i hope)! Now that we've cleared that up, i would like to cover the next part of my rant, If you walk down any street in America and ask someone for $5, do you think they would give it to you? Maybe, Maybe not. Some people would show kindness upon your soul and give you $5, Others may think your scamming them and say no. Now i said Give, because if i had said Lend, then you would assume they want $5 back in return. Thats the huge difference between Give and Lend, make sure your friends Give you money and don't Lend your money, thats a good way to start arguments, good ways to have leverage agaist you and a great way to lose a friend. I will always Give my friends money not expecting it back, if they do pay it back willingly, then i will be even happier to Give them money again, I just don't want any reasons for my friends to not like me. Now if you do scam people and take there $5, you may have $150 at the end of the day, but you didn't Earn it. When you Earn somthing in life, it gives you a happy feeling inside, a warm, fuzzy happiness that makes you all gooey (thats why i like being a nice guy, i love that feeling) inside. But when you just Take money from people, its no different then stealing. I do not want to be a thief, i want to Earn what i get., even when life makes stealing look like a much better option. Thats one of the toughest parts of life, how do you know when lifes throwing you a curveball or a blessing? Do you say Yes Please or No Way Jose? That just makes you think to hard doesnt it? Well thats good, your brain is to soft anyway, Go read a book! As far as i'm concerned, as long as you learned stealing is wrong and Earning your way is best, then i'm glad. If you take that from this blog post and keep it with you, i'm satisfied. Now to close, i want to show you a video i found on youtube, Think about how Cost of Living has changed while you watch it.

This is a mobile blog post, isnt it fancy? . . Dont answer that. I think you all need to know that this URL will probably stay since its super cool and catchy. I am also thinking that if taco bell wont hire me (doesnt look good), then i am going to have to try else where. I want a job SO BAD! I need to make cash, cash pays for insurance, insurance means i have a car, a car means i can drive to school . . In style! But that all starts with a job. This paper route has gotta go. But who will hire me? Im just a 17 year old punk kid. Maybe its my appearance. Well i cant buy clothes without money, which a job will provide. I honestly have no clue what im doing wrong. . . But i know its something. I guess i have to beg on the side me the road. Lol, wont that look nice? No, im not that desperate. Oh well, i will keep you updated.

Have you noticed that the time you summit your blog post is not the real time you summitted your blog post? I have noticed that .... and i probably spelled summit (both singular and plural versions) wrong. Anyway, i think that i am going to just rant about that. Why do time zones matter? I will tell you why, so we all have a balance! Now do we obey are time zones? No, not all of us. Some people go to bed at 3 AM when others are waking up half way across the world! When it's 4PM here, its 12AM where my friend Nemanja lives. Time Zones are big things. My Friend Bradely lives in Maine, thats quite some way from the Show Me State ...I also have a friend, Rolly, who lives in the Phillipines! Time Zones are important to the world! If we all had the same time zone, it just would not work. Were all gonna get the same money, but thats a different story .... Time Zones are just big, flat out big, i just wish i could find out why. Oh ya, i stated why, so we all have a balance. Now what is balance? Putting two watermellons on opposite ends of a board and seeing which one is heavier? No, not balance as in weight. I am talking about the balance that also means order. Now order is one of those things that are in the highly education vocabulary of politics, lawyers, judges, ect... Its a very important word. Order equals disipline which equals progress. If we follow the progress, we proceed onward 4 spaces, past GO, collect $200 and go on with a spring in our jump. No problems, No delays. I just wish time would follow us instead of the other way around. That's not going to happen since it would make things alot easier. Finally, i will close with the words of some guy i found on google quoting about time, Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (German Poet, Novelist and Dramatist), There is no past that we can bring back by longing for it. There is only an eternally new now that builds and creates itself out of the Best as the past withdraws.

Well i got zippo on the suggestions on the URL change so i haven't changed it just yet. I think i will wait until the dark side of the moon rotates into view... Nah, i was thinking about changing it to zacharypenguin.blogspot .... but I'm not sure yet. I think i will change it. Yes, No, Maybe. I want to let all my peeps know that i changed my schedule so i have 1st hour Study Hall and i removed my Chemistry Class... No Way I'm taking that now that my sister had to drop it .... She needs to take band 1st hour. Anyway, that was just how i decided to start this blog. Now i know its a very bad habit, but i did not brush my teeth yesterday and i feel horrible about it, so bad i had to confess to the world. If you happen to be thinking about me, please ask me if i have brushed my teeth today! I need to remember so this embarrassing occurrence is not repeated! Also, i am thinking about working out so i can try to lose 75 pounds. I don't like being this much overweight, so i was hoping i would be able to find ways to workout around the house, the only problem is, i haven't been on Yahoo! Answers to ask for ideas. I think i will just do wall push-ups and jog up and down my stairs. I really dislike doing regular push-ups and sit-ups (crunches) since they are just hard and painful. I don't have the money for a gym membership, but i am trying to get a job. When i get a job, i might look into that. I would enjoy a exercise buddy though. If your interested, please ask me! Other then that, i will try to keep a record of what I'm doing that's not good for me and what is helping. I think i need to just embrace the heat and go for walks outside ... If i had the money i would buy a treadmill and just walk on that for an hour, but i don't. I have a crappy old one my uncle found, but it's skinny and old. I think i have to do the unthinkable and embrace the heat! Heat and Sun and Burns, Oh My ....
