  • It’s sad to see that even someone as skilled at wrestling as you are, probably couldn’t make a future out of wrestling if you wanted to. Still good to know you have some direction in your life, I worry about some of the guys on that team. I swear if they let JV in on the whole GPA thing I’d bring up the curve by a solid .1 at least :). You’ve…Read More

  • Thank you for your generous reply, wrestlings been going pretty good, I don’t pretend to be the best person on the team (look around a couple comments you might actually find him), but I get a lot of fun out of it.

  • Yes me wrestling was totally new information to you, it’s not like we’ve been on the same team for the past 6 years. Still good to hear from a fellow adrenaline junkie, you done anything outside of wrestling? I have a bucket list as long as my paragraphs, white water rafting, skydiving, scuba diving. It was such a relief to finally knock hang…Read More

    Oh! Another sci fi fan! Ever seen any Star Trek? Or Battlestar Galactica, those are two of my favorite sci fi shows. I prefer TV shows for the genre. I similarly disdain writing bio’s so I feel you on that. XP

    My name is Joey Shears, and yes I am a girl you can blame my parents for the name. I don’t know what gives with that. I’ll be honest. I hate these kinds of prompts since they seem so cliche and for

    • I love that it isn’t just a typical bio. I can really hear your voice through your writing. I was able to learn more about you, while also staying engaged and interested. I like that you didn’t just list off facts, and the facts you told me were interesting and different. Your lead was also very intriguing, it caught my attention and persuaded me to read more.

    • A Jacob said, I could really hear your voice too. I felt like I was talking to you in person. In addition, I also agree that a father figure is important in everyone’s lives because it creates a balance with the mother figure. Overall, this work is great and keep working hard in school.

    • I love how real you are with your writing. I also love the little bits of comedy you give. It really makes the piece stand out.

    • Dear Joey:

      I am very entertained by your bio, “Me, Myself and I, Three Paragraphs About Yours Truly (Reupload),” because I can really hear your voice in it. Your post was comedic, and you managed to make what could have been a boring assignment fun.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “If I was one of the seven deadly sins I would be pride, no question about that and unashamedly so. ” I think this is an interesting choice because usually people categorize themselves into positive groups, not sins.

      Another sentence that I loved was: “ I have my crazy cat lady starter kit already.” This stood out for me because it’s just so funny. I really have no idea why.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because everything you write is always so dry and hilarious.

    • Dear Joey, I am blown away by your post, “Me, Myself and I, Three Paragraphs about yours truly” because not only do you wrestle (Which I also did for many years!) But you also managed to turn something sad into something hopeful.
      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: “Yes, my dad is unfortunately no longer with us, but that’s on his head, not the community’s, he drank himself into an early grave.” I think this is a great sentence because of how you worded it instead of just being straight up.
      How is wrestling for you? I really enjoyed it and hope you do as well!
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because many things you described in your bio seem to correspond with my own life. I also really enjoy the way you write.

      • Thank you for your generous reply, wrestlings been going pretty good, I don’t pretend to be the best person on the team (look around a couple comments you might actually find him), but I get a lot of fun out of it. You have to be a bit of both a masochist and a sadist to love this sport, and I have at least one of those qualities in abundance and the other in passable amounts, I’ll leave it to your imagination on which is which. Question you said that many of the things in my bio correspond to your life, did you notice any similarities beside wrestling, perhaps a similar outlook on school? I’d love to discuss with someone else my critiques on the american school system. 🙂

    • Dear Joey,
      I am impressed by your post and video, “Me, Myself and I, three paragraphs about yours truly” because of the fact that you mentioned specifics. I do wrestling as well and the fact that you wrestle caught my eye. One sentence that stood out to me was “I’m an adrenaline junkie”. I think this is cool because I can relate somewhat.

      • Yes me wrestling was totally new information to you, it’s not like we’ve been on the same team for the past 6 years. Still good to hear from a fellow adrenaline junkie, you done anything outside of wrestling? I have a bucket list as long as my paragraphs, white water rafting, skydiving, scuba diving. It was such a relief to finally knock hang gliding off the list, it is simply one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.
