Rough-and-Tumble!

Hello my dear readers! It's been a little while since my last post. I've had a little busy period over the past few weeks that has caused me to neglect my blog. I normally would have posted earlier this month, but have had a few things standing in my way!

The biggest thing that caused me the most trouble recently has been an unfortunate little spill I took while at a friend's place. He has a condo with an amazing rooftop terrace and two floors linked by the steepest staircase in the world. Clumsy me, I missed the second step on my way down and now am the proud owner of two little scars, one on my chin and one on the top of my head. Oddly enough, as the doctors put it when they stitched me up, I was quite lucky in how I fell. I could have broken some bones or, even worse, ended up with a big disfiguring scar on my face. But alas, my scars are extremely well placed so my money-maker isn't damaged. As one doc said "You can go back to modelling, no problem"

The good news is that you won't really even notice that I have these scars in any more matches I film at BG East, unless the camera zooms in for an extreme close-up of my hair-line to see the little scar that protrudes. And really, in the end, even if you do, the one on my head actually makes me look a little more bad-ass than usual! Who knows, perhaps the scar will be my opening to being more of a heel :P

Other than the little tumble down the stairs, I've been busy with a contract job that just finished and with registering for university courses for the fall. Yes, you read correctly, I'm heading back to school this fall! It'll be my second Bachelor's degree and I'm looking forward to getting started on it! Lucky me that I live in a place where education is still relatively cheap and a second degree won't put me in the poor house.

On another note, if you read my last post, you saw that I had posted a poll on my Goggle+ account about possibly having a match with Darius at BG East (hopefully some day soon) and was asking what you the readers would like to see as an outcome for the match. Despite having whooped him in early voting, he made a comeback and creamed me with roughly 65-67% of the vote going in his favor for the win. Yet something strange has happened...almost as soon as he took the lead, his profiles on Google+, globalfight, meetfighters, etc. have ALL disappeared! Does anyone know what happened? I've asked around and most people are as confused as I am...hopefully he's alright and hasn't had any spills down flights of stairs like I have!

On that note dear readers, I wish you all a great start to your summers and I'll keep you posted on some upcoming travels I have ;)

  2. Yeah, last I checked even his email address is disconnected. We were talking about me sending him some gear I had from my job that's just sitting in storage waiting to get tossed, and then he just vanished. At first I thought he had blocked me for some reason, but seeing that his profiles are coming down on everything I'm assuming it's a lot more serious? Hope he's ok.

    1. That makes two of us Jay :) I'm trying to get news about him through other wrestlers but haven't heard back from them yet. I'm sure he's fine :) Gear from your job you say? If he ain't taking it, I might want it :P

    2. Lol I work for a vendor that sells a lot of underwear/gear and swimwear at different pride/gay events. Of course we don't sell everything and some stuff eventually gets shoved into storage or swag bags or sent to wrestlers we like lol
