WITH OVER 4,000 HITS A YEAR!!!!
This seems to be the question on everyone's mind lately, What's new? I guess alot is, which is why I haven't been writing much lately. Ive been up and over my head these past few months with a whole lot of things.
Just to let you all know, my brother Michael is still at AIT and will not be back until late October, as of a week ago. So please continue your prayers that all is going well for him.
Spirit Week was held the first week of school this year and went pretty well.
J.L. Mann raised $80,002.02 while Greenville High School raised $106,530.60 to beat our butts. It's pretty embarrassing but still a great competition. As you can see by the picture I was Dance Mann for the last time doing such fun songs as Crank That and Tempted To Touch among others. I am sad to say that this was my last year and I will greatly miss Spirit Week and all the fun that I had. Thanks again to the Patriots for all that you do. This year I raised over $1,000 for charity. The combined total for these three years is around $8,000 for our various charities. This could not have been done for them without YOUR support! Again, Thank you!
I forgot to tell you guys about my summer. In short, it was awesome!!!!! The cruise was awesome and I will never forget the Garden City Beach Bums.
The Greatest Garden City Beach Bums!!!!!! Everyone had fun on both trips as you can see. :)
The fall retreat for the YG was held the first weekend after the first week of school. I think every YG member that went had a great enrichment of faith and new frienships made. I went Saturday morning, instead of Friday night to attend the Greenville-Mann game.
There you go. Anyways, the retreat was a blast. Andrew Boyd, a guitar player from Austin, Texas, played guitar and did P&W with the YG, and Father Robert Morey from POP did Mass on Saturday evening. Thanks to all YG members who attended.
YG members had fun here.
School is going well so far. Classes are going so fast and Senior year is awesome. I'm in shock because I only have around 8 months until I graduate. It's funny and awesome at the same time to have everyone look up to you and try to see you as a role model. I think it takes respect and self determination to be seen that way. It's hard work, because we all have our faults, but as we work through them we become better people. But it's been an awesome and great experience.
Dance has just started and it's getting off to a great start. B and A are great teachers and I can't wait for the recital in May.
Nikki And Franny's Sweet Sixteen Party was absolutely a blast to remember last night at KOC. I've never had so much fun in a long time. Pictures will be coming soon to Myspace and Facebook. Around 50 guests attended and we partied and dance for over three hours!! I met so many people and had the time of my life. Doing the Crank That with 20 of us was so crazy. I will tell you more as pics are generated.
Well, I guess that's all for now and what's new. So what's new with you guys? Tell me all.
Have a good one every1,
Christian, Dance Mann, The Amazing Christian L.
