"Galloping Male"

I would become the worlds biggest fan of equestrian show jumping if things like this happened every time.

USA

During these last few weeks due to the fact that I havent started school yet and am only working a couple (none) days a week, i have had a great deal of free time. Most of my time has been spent at my favorite coffee shop reading books that i actually want to read. The rest of my time has been devoted to watching the olympics. As I watched the olympics i began to realize why they call America the "melting pot" of different cultures and ethnicities. In looking at all of our athletes, there is such a beautiful mix of ethnic backrounds. I havent found this diversity in other countries however. I got to experience this "melting pot" firsthand this morning.

My friend and fellow classmate Emeka "Jacob" Ogwudile had his swearing in ceremony this morning along with about 40 or 50 people from all over the world. It was such a powerful ceremony. Everybody that was swearing in stood up and stated their name and where they were from. I think there was something like 20 different countries represented. Pretty stinkin cool.

What really hit me though was how much we take our freedom and our rights for granted. Ive never really stopped to think about how blessed i am to be born into this country. In watching all of those people stand up and state where they were from, i couldnt help to think about what life must have been like for them there. 

Congrats Jacob!

"Bigfoot" fails DNA test

One of the more disappointing stories in the news. You may have heard about the latest bigfoot finding, where two Georgia hikers say they have recovered the body of Sasquatch!

Its too bad though that "One of the two samples of DNA said to prove the existence of the Bigfoot came from a human and the other was 96 percent from an opossum, according to Curt Nelson, a scientist at the University of Minnesota who performed the DNA analysis."

Damn. So close.
