Here's a thread just for you BtL. Now you can post your landmark and keep your "never started a thread" streak intact.

Of course, if you don't want it, I can' always delete it, though that might make Icky angry. [Wink]

The viewers at home might not know this, but what makes this thread especially funny is that Kayla told me NOT to write a landmark when I told her about it over AIM.

Women. They can never make up their minds.

She did it because she hates us both and never wants to talk to either of us. Just like Ralphie.

It was the first, last and only time I've ever seen her on AIM. It was also back before she "quit" Hatrack.

Clearly she's only back now to make sure I write a landmark.

I did? ::scratches head:: I probably did. But, you were the one who said you already had it written but didn't want to post it because it would break your streak of never starting a thread. You leech. I figured that was a cry for help. And here I am. But, I'll stand by that original thought of not doing one. They get saved forever, you know! [Eek!]

Wait, do I even need to post a landmark now?

I've already got a shocking secret revealed, good luck wishes, some general praise and a pretty good derailment.

Essentially I've had a succesful landmark without having to go through all the fuss and bother of actually *writing* one.

Hold on to this thread, Kayla. I promise you I'll put some sort of a landmark on here sooner as opposed to later.

I don't know either, Bob, but hey! I sat down and wrote something just now. Or maybe I should call it SOMETHING to emphasize the length.

So it seems I have to write me a landmark. A brand new landmark, you canít just recycle old ones. Landmarks are more about the writer than the reader anyway; I might as well milk this for all itís worth (as opposed to what Iíve already been doing).

This is hard for me; I donít write well. In person I rely a great deal on facial expressions and voice inflections to get my meaning across and words on a page always seem hollow and wooden by comparison.

At any rate, the first landmark seems to be a life story for most and Iíve never been one to break out of a mould. Itís hard to know what to focus on; my life has been a very good one. But writing about how great everything is gets old fast, donít it? Everyone who has things good has things good in the same way, but everyoneís screwed up for different reasons [Wink]

I had intended to write this about my family, but I think Iím going to be more egocentric. And, quite honestly, I donít know how to share my stories of them yet. So I suppose Iíll just give a ďbriefĒ history of me.

I am the youngest of 4, second son of my Dadís second wife. No, that sounds too cold. Sure itís what she was, but Mom has always been a great candidate for sainthood, much to her chagrin. Nobody looks to help a saint; they never seem like they need it. At the time I came around Dad was working as the head librarian for one of the (if not the) top primarily undergraduate universities in Canada, in the small town of Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Mom was a trained actress, but acting turned out to be a more stressful life than she wanted and so she decided to get her masters in English, pregnant or no. I always hear stories of her slogging through marshland on a tiny island in the Bay of Fundy for a biology course she was taking. With me, a well over 10 pound baby crammed inside her five foot nothing frame. Sorry, Mom.

Like many here, my first passions were for books. I was the quiet little boy with big blue eyes in the corner that all the little girls wanted to marry. I totally peaked to soon. But unlike most others, I put that passion aside by the time I was 10. My father was diagnosed with Parkinsonís shortly after I was born and as his children got older we realized that there was very little time to get to know him. We all strove to find some way to bond with him, some piece of him that we could treasure. He was a brilliant, brilliant man with an enormous appetite for books. As it became harder and harder for him to read my brother stepped in and started reading to him. They would talk for hours about the books that theyíd read and what they meant. Clearly I needed a different angle.

The next natural choice was soccer. If there were two things outside his family that Dad lived for they were books and soccer. He played for Glasgow before leaving Scotland and Iíve many, many happy memories of playing with him or watching the world cup. Itís what we did together. By the time I was 10 he could no longer play with me, but he could watch and there was something special in that. I lived and breathed soccer for years. Iíd study tapes and practice all the moves out in our yard. I played at the provincial level; I averaged over a goal a game. Then I slipped on some ice and landed awkwardly on my knee. My anterior cruciate ligament tore and several shards of bone fractured off my kneecap, one of which lodged itself in my knee joint so it wouldnít bend. Like my knee, I was shattered.

The recovery was a long, slow process. Made worse because I was so desperate to get back on the field. Once I could walk again I was outside with a soccer ball bobbling around with it. It was my connection with Dad and I couldnít stand to lose it. By this point he was rarely finishing sentences and I felt like it was too late to find something else to bring us together. 6 months after my initial surgery I tried to play again. I forced myself through one half before someone slid cleats first into the back of my injured leg and I found myself confined to crutches. At that point, I figured it was time to take it easy until the doctors gave me the ok.

Things were looking pretty good a little over a year later. I was playing for the school team and holding my own. I wasnít the best any more, but I figured with a little time and effort Iíd be back up where I felt I belonged. Fate, of course, decided otherwise and in gym class I went over the vault and over-rotated my flip. Not normally a bad thing but the crash mats hadnít been pushed together and one leg slipped between them and the rest of my body tried to keep going forward. The hyperextension was so bad I had to put in a hip to ankle leg cast to keep it stable. That was it, no more soccer for a long, long time. Maybe ever.

I got depressed and withdrew from my family. In doing so I lost my last opportunity to really get to know Dad which will be something Iíll always regret. I canít believe I knew that it wouldnít be long before he was completely unable to form thoughts and I still hid in my room. I guess I couldnít deal with it. I know I couldnít. Of course, that doesnít make it any easier to forgive myself.

Mom tried to find me something physical that didnít need a lot of legwork that I could throw myself into. One day she saw an add for juggling lessons and just signed me up. I went grudgingly and bitterly but mom always did know best. I *loved* it. So that was the new me. I was the entertainer; I juggled anything and everything everywhere I went. I taught anyone whoíd sit still long enough to learn, my math teacher, my peers, random kids who came up to me in the streets. One close friend of mine took to it like a fish to water and we partnered up, he was the talent and I was the personality. When our choir toured through Europe we threw a hat down and juggled just so we could say weíve ďperformedĒ in places like Saltsburg and Vienna. When we were 17 we packed up our gear and took a 30-hour train ride to Niagara Falls NY to attend the International Juggling Associationís convention. It was a blast. This was something I could do! I could be busker. Not necessarily noble career when compared to my brilliant family members, but theyíd support me all the same. Of course, it didnít work out for me. The same summer as the convention I was struck by a car while biking and thrown into oncoming traffic.

Not but by the grace of God did I live. In fact, I managed to avoid breaking a single bone. But I had extensive soft tissue damage throughout my back and neck, and some nerve damage in my left hand. I eventually got the feeling back, but it still seems sluggish to me, it just doesnít respond as fast as I think it should. Again, months of rehab, I probably saw more of my physiotherapist than I did my girlfriend [Wink] Juggling, however, was right out. It was too painful to bend over and pick the stupid things up all the time. And the continuous motions aggravated pinched nerves in my neck. So I put my juggling clubs in the closet next to my soccer cleats. I tried to throw myself into the piano (Iíve played since I was 8), thinking just practice would get my left hand back in shape but it was both painful and frustrating and I didnít have the patience for it.

Graduation was coming up fast and I needed a new future. I enjoyed biology and chemistry so why not smush the two together? Biochemistry, here I come! There was a mad dash to throw together some sort of application for Acadia (in my home town) for the coming fall. I was my last choice of school but, well, we couldnít afford to send me elsewhere. Then, just before finals and within a few days of each other I got acceptance letters from Waterloo, Queenís and Simon Fraser. Never mind I hadnít applied. My grandfather offered to pay for my first year of schooling and I figured I might as well go to Waterloo. They had a great coop program that would enable me to pay for the rest of my tuition. A week later I packed my bags and hopped on a plane just a few hours after crossing the stage and graduating from high school. A few months later my parents decided to leave and moved to Northern Ontario. My plans went from staying at home in Nova Scotia with friends and family to going to school halfway across the country but coming back during breaks to never going back to Nova Scotia again within a 4-month span.

Funny how fate takes hold and pushes and prods you according to its whims and whimsies, isnít it? Why should you bother with dreams, schemes and plans? Iím a year away from graduating and feeling rudderless. I havenít been doing biochemistry because I love it. I donít. I can do it, it comes easily to me and Iím good at it. But I canít picture doing it forever. Canít picture doing anything forever, really.

I guess Iím looking for something else to be passionate about. I play intramural soccer at school, but I just goof off. I canít bring myself to really try because I canít bear to not be as good as I am in my mindís eye. Itís the same with juggling. Iím part of the juggling club and I enjoy teaching people, but I refuse to perform. I just canít bring myself to do it.

Iím fumbling for some sort of conclusion to this post but I guess thatís silly of me. There isnít one. Not yet anyway.

Besides, itís now past midnight and Iím tired of typing [Razz] Actually, I think I'm just plain old tired.

*shrug*

I'm impressed not merely by that, Ela -- and indeed, it is impressive -- but by BtL's landmark.

I have long been impressed by YOU, Dan. I knew a few bits of that, but it's rather different seeing it all together like that. Now I know better exactly why I've been so impressed by you -- until now it was a general feeling more than anything else.

You are straightforward and honest. You don't give up. You don't give in. You simply take the pieces, shuffle them around a bit, and start again. That is a skill that I am frankly quite jealous of. And one that I am sure will continue to stand you in good stead.

Dan, I know we've had (and surely, will continue to have) our differences. But I'm glad you're here.

And just for you, this post has had all smileys extracted.

I guess Iím looking for something else to be passionate about.

Change "year" to "week and a half" and "biochemistry" to "languages" and "it comes easily to me and I'm good at it" to "it used to be really easy for me and now I'm just finishing it for the sake of finishing it" and that's me. It's not that I'm not passionate about anything; it's that all my feelings are reserved for people--friends as well as Ben--and I'm feeling purposeless outside of these people. I still have no idea what I want to do as far as a career goes--there's nothing I can see myself truly fulfilled in doing. Everything I think of, career-wise, is just something I could settle for, not something I'd wake up wanting to do every day.

I think I have more to say, but right now I need to finish my papers. Not because I care about them, but just because I guess I should turn something in.

So right now I'll just add that I feel extremely lucky that you're one of the jatraqueros I've met, and that I'll be in touch regarding a gathering soon. [Smile]

Having managed to accidentally fall into psuedo-biomedical research, I can also say that I've no desire to do it for life. Glad I'm not the only one.

But that's a conversation to have over cocktails, no?

CyberDan - Stupid Judas of a body. What's truly terrible is that you took so quickly to that stuff, whereas I would be forced to try and learn hoping someone would run me over to end it quickly.

Thank you for being willing to post your landmark. Some bits I knew, some I didn't. When people get on a role, it becomes sort of therapeutic to post the innermost stuff in a thread instead of divulge it over an instant messaging program. I appreciate your willingness to let me (and I guess other people probably read it, too, eh) know more about you.

I think this is the part of the thread where I bump it from the third page under the guise of replying to what other people have said, most nefarious of me.

See, here Kayla starts this thread for me and then hounds me for some sort of response and when I post one she canít even be bothered to gloat about it? Iím so unappreciated.

You know, Celia, when you said youíd buy me a drink I wasnít picturing the kind you stick plastic umbrellas in. And weíd better watch ourselves, a few too many and weíll probably start making babies. Only not the old fashioned way, more along the lines of Evil Engineering TM.

Lindsay, once youíve settled on a schedule start some sort of a thread about Canadian gatherings. I probably check Hatrack more than my Hotmail account these days and, you know, it saves me the trouble of starting a thread on my lonesome.

Thanks, rivka. For more than just keeping the smileys under control. You know, if I feel like I need to shuffle my life around again, maybe I should just go lie down in traffic? I always seem to be at my best after hurting myselfÖ

AhhhÖ thereís truly nothing quite so satisfying as narcissism.

I had a sneaking suspicion that you were a really cool guy, BtL. [Wink] When I succumbed to the landmark pressure, mine wasn't nearly as good.

You and twinky really need to make it to Chicago, or else I'll have to get up to Canada sometime(which sounds easy enough, but the last time I tried, I was on my way from NYC to Toronto and they sent me home from the border.) Hell, if Kama doesn't mind, I'll stop up there and pick you up on our way from NYC.

Anyway, glad you're at Hatrack, BtL. Post more often.

I'd love to come out to Chicago, it's just that my entire life is presently up in the air. When I know more about where I'll be in August and what I'll be doing, I'll know if I can make it...

<-- doesn't mind

I think with more people in the car, you would let me out of the trunk sometimes.

Frisco, if you're even halfway serious let me know. It'd sure save me several hundred dollars. If it makes it easier on you I could probably make it to Buffalo or something. You could even make a pitstop to toss Kama over the Falls in a barrel.

Well, if she changes her mind back, I'm totally serious. What's a little detour when you're on vacation? I love to drive.
