Silas,

First, welcome and we love having you here. Much respect for making a good choice and we wish you all the best.

Second, enjoy your senior HS year. You'll never go to HS again. Get everything you want out of it.

Third, I pray to God you are not reading this, if you are, fold up the laptop or shut down the phone and never open again. Listen to coaches as to how you are doing.

Silas just tweeted "Today I'm staying after school and talking to all my teachers"

Maybe he simply wants to let them in on the fact that he needs to do well in school in order to attend Gonzaga. And, that he will not disappoint?

In all seriousness though, hopefully he is not struggling in school. I talked to a professor after school once...and it was to beg for a bone (better grade).

I bet hes getting proactive on keeping his academics in order.

I never did that...
"I cant graduate unless I get a 2.0 in your class... can I write an extra report, or wash your car, or take your ugly daughter out on a date or something?"

Yeah, I was not the best student.

Nor I...let's just say I partook of the entire "Gonzaga experience."

The best motivator came from dear old Uncle Samuel: graduate in 4 years and enter the Army as a 2nd LT, or fail to graduate in 4 years and enter the Army as a Spec 4.
Combine that with a change of majors, and that resulted in averaging 21 hours/semester for my last 3 semesters.

How can you "enter" the Army as an E4? You mean as a ROTC washout?

Depending on the amount of college education you have at the time that you enter the service, they used to allow you to enter at a higher rank based upon the amount of college credits that you have achieved.

Wow, gotta say I've never heard that and I did basic at Ft. Lewis and advanced at Yakima Firing Center in the late 60s. Everyone goes through basic and maybe you get rank faster but not out of the box. News to me.

Did my basic at Ft. Leonardwood (Ft lost in the woods, misery as some would call it) and advanced at Ft Sam in Texas. I have spent plenty of time at the Yakima Firing Center overseeing firing ranges as a medic (sweating to death in my medical M113).

Back to Silas - - I think this shows the opposite of a potential problem. Talking to teachers, taking responsibility, heading any potential problems off at the pass. Sounds to me like a Zag before being a Zag.

I respect the people that can compete at a high level of HS or GU and keep grades up. It is not easy for us that had no distractions - being able to do it while competing takes serious commitment.

Did you ever swing into Yakima? My hometown and where I live now. Your post made me feel good knowing you once lived so close to me, but then I was most likely at GU in Spokane at that time (unless it was summer).

I'll throw in my take on Yakima, since you brought it up.

We passed through Yakima on our way back from the Oregon Coast last summer, stayed at an ocean vacation rental for a week. Anyways, I stumbled apon a rather rare set of novelty S&P shakers at a Yakima antique store, paid $5.00 for the set and sold them on Ebay for $650.00! Used the money to purchase several sets of game tixs to see the Zags last year.

Needless to say I like Yakima, lol.

Sorry to beat you out of a treasure that was so close to ya though. :)

Go Zags! Look forward to it.. I would love to meet more people who post here. we're kind of like family, imo....at least the good Catholic family I grew up in. We disagreed and fought so much...it was all part of the fun of trying to be better debaters than the others. My dad was a pro in the art of argumentation. And you better have your facts straight if you wanted to go up against him...hahaha which of course at some time in our budding young lives we all wanted to do just that....and got our butts whipped....

Hahaha, that's funny!

Growing up in a large family we watched a ton of sports and there were a lot of differing opinions. Mine were always correct. Truthfully though, I had my butt whipped so many times by my dad I had callouses, ahhh rest his soul. :)
