We all can't be Simone Biles.

Oops, l Did It Again...!

Since today is the day after I have sustained one of the most un athletic injuries of my life I feel that I should poke fun at myself and all my friends who have had equally ungraceful experiences. I know, its unfortunate that we can't be all like Serena Williams, who started playing professional tennis at the age of 14, won 23 grand slam tournaments. Also, did I mention that Williams won the Australian open when she was pregnant? Yeah, I for one do not have those genes. I can't even fall gracefully. Here are ten of the most un athletic injuries brought to you from myself, my friends, and some random individuals I have asked to share.

1. I fell backwards off my raised dorm bed while reading The 6th Extinction. My head got slammed into the ground and I could not see much for about 5 minutes- Me

2. I was dancing around the Christmas tree and it was definitely on Christmas Eve because I don't listen to Christmas music before that. Anyways, I then step on a plug and the plug went into my foot. Yeah. - Anon

3. I wasn't even on my phone, I just walked straight into a glass door and I got a bloody nose from it. - Anon

4. I was wearing really really long yoga pants and I got some kix in a bowl and life was really good, but then I tripped and everything spilled onto the carpet.- Colleen

5. I sprained my ankle on a tree root last year and had a cankle for a month. It was right before beach season, ugh.- Anon

6. I once ran straight into a tree when I was going for a frisbee. The whole left side of my face was a raspberry. Otherwise I am generally athletic. - Anthony

7. I had a bee sting me in the eye when it got stuck underneath a motorcycle helmet.- Anthony

8. I jammed my pinky toe on a wall and then it actually broke. I was just walking and I guess I was too close to the corner!- Katie

9. I was in yoga class and I was trying to go from candlestick (salamba sarvangasana) to plow pose (halasana), but I transitioned a little too quickly and I kneed myself in the face a little. - Me

10. The first time I ever went skiing I did not know how to get off the lift so I jumped off the lift before it reached the end. I fell like 6 feet and didn't die because I was thankfully at Mount Peter and not Zermatt in the Swiss Alps. - Me

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
