Well...I brought it up. Now I'll stick with it

Hey all, in light of the "Hupit Drama" and that mess of a thread I brought up how blogs are never really used here. I've never actually seen another person's blog here(I still have no idea where this will be seen, haha). Well I just got back and I'm a man(apparently) of my word, even though I never said I would do one I just brought it up. Anyway here it goes.
I honestly have no idea what a blog is used for, so bare with me. I mean I guess they are used for whatever, so that is exactly what I'll use mine for. For example, this one will be my introduction. Some, well most, will be on school, gaming, baseball, therapy, personal life(mostly rants), etc.
Anyway, like I said this is the intro, this is the post that I explain why you should continue reading this post and why you should read following blog posts. For this "intro" I'm going to give you all(as if I'm not the only one reading this) a look into the inner workings of David (enter last name here) and what makes me, me. I like to break up my life up into several aspects, those being: school, gaming, baseball, relationships, emotional. For this post I'm going to focus on relationships and school since I feel those two are the best things for you to begin to understand a David S.
For the relationship aspect I don't only mean my relationship with past girlfriends, I mean in general. I'm a quiet kid and I get more vocal as I get to know people. I love this about me and other people who are like this because you can see how much your relationship has progressed with that person based on how vocal they are around you, how comfortable they are around you. Granted initial interactions with people like this is generally awkward, but the end result, if you work with it, is always worth it, trust me.
Loyalty and honesty are huge for me when it comes to my friends and loved ones. These are two values that my current baseball coach really reinforces with all of his players. He has been more of a life coach than anything for me. I mean he teaches his players how to live life and I am truly thankful for that. At first, I was skeptical because he has a thing for the dramatics and every time he talked about loyalty and all of that, his stories seemed so far fetched. But then I started to think about how many of his former ball players(just about all of them)would do literally anything for this man and then it all started to sink in. So, everything I have learned from this man is reflected in some way and I am a better person for it.
A PERFECT example would be these past few days. As I write this Hurricane Sandy just tore through the Northeast. I am from New York and although we didn't get any flooding(well in my area) we got a lot of winds which knocked down A LOT of trees. Anyway a few days before the hurricane a friend of mine told me that a house had burned down by him and that he heard it was a house that another friend of mine lived in. Obviously, I wanted to get in touch with this friend(let's call him S), but the only person I knew that could get in contact with him(long story) was my ex girlfriend(let's call her J). We split on okay terms and were friends for awhile, but we just stopped talking I guess, so for me to text her was a little random. Anyway, I text'd J and explained the situation and asked her to text S to see if he was okay, but refused because she was "too busy in class". Anyway some words were said and we stopped that conversation mad at each other. Then, I remembered something my coach had taught us "Never end on a bad note, you never know what could happen and you never want you last words to be cruel." So, I text'd her back and we both apologized, and turns out S was fine. Fast forward to tonight I was hanging out with some friends, who knew my ex, and they told me that a tree fell on my J's house and crashed right into her room. My ex is away at college, but imagine if she wasn't...I could never imagine my last words to her being...well, not good. So, it's things like that they make me appreciate what my coach teaches me.
For the school aspect, well it's not really going to be about school more of how my mind works. I am very unorthodox. Meaning my brain works in different ways than the norm, hard to describe. When most people hear this they automatically assume I'm some sort of genius or some sort of idiot, and after hanging out with me they assume it's the latter. To be honest I sell myself as stupid, but if I manage to concentrate for more than five second I am fairly smart(not a genius by any stretch of the imagination, but smarter than the average person, not sure how much that means to be honest, haha). Anyway, my brain can't tell the importance of situations, I REALLY don't know how to word that. But what I'm trying to say is that I COULD have two finals tomorrow each worth 50% of my final grade in the corresponding classes and I will want to study, but I will have no concentration. On the other hand I COULD have a simple paper that's due in two weeks and I'll be locked in my room trying to write the perfect essay the day it is assigned. Only reason I'm emphasizing the "could"s is because I honestly can't control it. If my brain thinks it is worth my concentration then I'll focus, if not I'll try, but usually doesn't go my way.
Honestly, the only things that always get my attention are lab work(good thing I'm a Forensic Science Major, haha), baseball, and gaming. I know that sounds horrible, but they take my mind off things. In turn it allows to concentrate as much as I want. But, these are two topics for another entree.
So, I guess that's it for now, this has been a good thirty minutes or so, haha. Maybe this whole blog thing isn't so bad. Anyway, if you read this great I appreciate it(let me know and I'll see if I can do something for you, haha).
