In the summer of 2006, I changed a few of the basic rules from my Water Basketball game, mostly with respect to the scoring, allowing two different types of scoring rules.
For a refresher of the rules of the original game, you can click here.
Though I probably should have posted this yesterday for the anniversary of me going to my first NCAA finals event, I’ll do it today so as to make it an actual #TBT post. Here goes!
(Unfortunately, I have no photos, since this was during a time before I regularly had access to photography).
Thursday, December 14, 2006 NCAA Final Four Day
Five years ago, on August 27, 2011, I had a momentous Saturday. Ten years ago, on August 27, 2006, I felt the recovery from a virus, of which the previous day was among the worst days in my undergraduate years. I have already given the full journal of FIVE years ago, so wanted to make a reflection on it a-la my reflections on the Israel trip. Then, I will give the full journal of 2006’s August 27.
There will be photos from five years ago!
WARNING: This is a long post since it would be better to have it as two posts. Sorry!
Today’s blog post is brought to you by Flashback Friday. Given that my main activity today will be driving, I will bring a post of a road trip from 2006–the longest day of me being in a car… or close enough.
Granted, today’s drive is “only” a combined seven hours. Not as bad as the nine-ish hours from nine years ago!
(Note: This post was pre-scheduled to publish at 11:00. I’m not blogging while I’m driving!)
Recall my Wednesday post last week: I had talked about a few Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes, and related to how accurately they described me. Although those quizzes are intended for entertainment only, they can be surprisingly accurate.
Another thing that I found, which is intended for entertainment only, but may also have surprising accuracy, is the fortune cookie. Let’s consider a few salient ones for me.
