Since my Poi experiment was so successfull, I helped my friend Derik make a pair for himself. this was only our second time doing it... but it is a blast!!! It's like dancing, good. Fire, Awsome. Fire Dancing, FREAKIN AMAZING! haha or something to that effect. You can expect to see more of this on here, that is for certain.

Mans red flower


If you play with it... you might get covered in soot!

I experimented with some Fire Poi that I made for the first time today! I ended up hitting myself a number of times and singed a couple of patches of hair off my arms... and behind my ear!!! haha mother was kind enough to take some pictures while i was doing so.

My Freetime

Since I'm only taking night classes this semester I have almost all day to do whatever my heart desires... unfortunately thats usually just sit and stare at the TV for hours on end.

This is not ok.

Theres a place in town called Sticks & Stones that has a bouldering cave. for $40 I can get 15 all day passes to climb around there. I think I should go ahead and do that.

I havn't been completely slothful in my spare time. I also now have a guitar (thank you Aaron) and have been learning a couple songs (thank you youtube). you might say that I now "dabble" the guiter since I don't really know how to play it. haha



I actually dabble in alot of things. actually. thats pretty much all I do!!! start one things, kinda learn how to do it, then move on to something else. I should probably fix that, but at least I'm always keeping busy right?

My latest thing is fire dancing. I'm making some Poi, I ordered the wick yesterday, completely from scratch. except for the wick, and some washers. i'll probably put some pictures of them on here once their finished :)

The World Is Flat.

This is a video lecture that I watched for my developing world class. The Speaker is Thomas Friedman and he is the author of the book entitled "The World Is Flat". he goes through and explains the first three chapters of this book. I found it really interesting and think you might enjoy watching it as well. It's about an 1 1/4 hours long so get comfy, grab a notebook and pop some corn!



I plan on reading the entire book soon :)

Ok... I'll admit it.

I don't understand everything!!!

Note: save and print this document for future reference... this is the first and last time that statement will be made.

BUT!!! that doesn't mean I don't Know everything.


...There's a huge difference.

I know it's hard for some of you to believe that I really don't understand everything. So to convince you that it's true I've compiled a complete list of them.

THINGS I DON"T UNDERSTAND by: Alex Ashby

-Cheese pizza
-Soap operas
-People who make a career out of politics
-Europe
-Bottled water
-Anime
-Paying for Psychiatrists/Self-help books
-Toilet seat etiquette ( I have a rather long rant about this one... I'll have to explain it later)

What really got me thinking about what I don't understand is the cheese pizza. it seriously blows my mind away to think about why that would be considered delicious, or even worth making in the first place! some people are just silly!

Seinor basura... ummm...collectoro?

So I'm up here in Washington staying with dad and Aaron and Brielle and we're having a pretty good time :) the other day I went to the lake with Aaron and Brielle and of coure lil stitch!


















They're kinda silly sometimes. So I was in the canoe and they were floating around on an air mattress.



When Aaron took me to the lake last time I was here we went around the lake and collected all the floating garbage we could find, so I figured that I would follow my big/lil bros example and do it again! As you can see I found a... Plethora... of loathsome float-some!
Heres a list of a few things I found: a left shoe, an emergency whistle, some rope, a chunk of 2x4, like 7 popcans/beer bottles, a capri-sun, a stuffed kitty cat, a whisky bottle, a cool little water bottle, a plastic fork, several foam worm containers and fishing tackle; hook, line, sinker and bobber!

For washington supposedly full of liberals and granola crunchers there sure was alot of junk in that little lake! I even found a dirty Diaper! but there was no way I was touching that, so I left it in the lilly pads... I'm not that dedicated to helping the environment ;)
Ps. Brielle took most of these pictures!
