It’s been an interesting 7 days I’d have to say filled with some surprising experiences.
Last Sunday was my first live boxing experience. A colleague of mine is a boxer and invited us to attend a Thai and kickboxing competition. Different, intriguing and violent are the three words I’d use to describe this sport. Never been a fan of it in the first place, never expected it to be quite enjoyable. It wasn’t Lennox Lewis vs. Tyson but it was quite competitive. My friend won his bought and came out with only a small scratch, whereas others were a bit less fortunate. From concussions to seizures to total knockouts, this competition had it all. I’ll definitely go to the next competition.
Monday was slightly different. Sitting on my computer at work early morning, I get sent an email about what is now an ex-colleague in the states. Now this girl was crazy but I never expected her to be that crazy, add to that overly stupid. Well, not only was she a thief (stole neighbour’s packages and mail), but quite deceptive (conned people into making ebay purchases worth thousands of dollars but never delivered any) and for some reason, featured on several escort websites. At the end of the day, she is charged on 23 different cases. What a good way to screw up your career and life. Now if you’re reading this miss, if you were smart, you would’ve gotten the hell out of the US, if not, you’re very screwed.
Today I decided to watch the movie 300, very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now this movie has caused a great uproar especially with the Persians as it depicts the army of Xerxes as savage, monstrous barbarians. Honestly, this movie should just be taken for what it is rather than reading much into it. It’s not the first and it won’t be the last to be criticized. Anyways, I hope everyone’s week was enjoyable.
