Train Hard - Stay Humble

Junior year is starting for me. It is getting harder and harder to find time to train and progress. I worked hard over the weekend so i could take a day off of summer homework and do some training. I went down to the school down my hill and was working on a kong vault by practicing over a picnic table. after a couple of minutes i was just bouncing off the end of the table. i went back to my starting position totally ready to clear the table when i hear a loud and angry "HEY!". Right before i tried to clear the table i was thrown out of the school because the principal was roaming around. I had never been kicked out of there before because many of the teachers and the janitor know me. I tried to reason with the principal saying i wasnt destroying property or anything but it was no use. I spent the rest of the day doing the one thing i hate most HOMEWORK. I had that table... so so so annoying

I must say the school administration at my school has also done it to me. I was climbing a wall and when I got to the top one of the "security guards" asked if I didn't hear him, well honestly I didn't because I was concentrating on what I was doing. Turns out he was tellin me to get down. If everyone thinks we're always playing around, then how am I to practice with the tiny tiny little bits of freetime I have? Also the comments by people calling me stupid, I mean I am basically the only person that is commited to parkour at my school. I think the kids see it as the new "skateboarding" which I have no respect for from personal experience. I had it better when climbing on jungle gyms was encounraged in elementary school, being a kid has nothing to do with age.

...if you do it (maybe in a joint effort?...), please post it.

write a well thought-out letter to the establishment. no joke, it's the best way to show you're serious about something.

...its the principal of the school he needs no reason. I cant have the teachers put in word because they only know me as "that kid who jumps around every other day"

Did he have a good reason for kicking you out? It's not like he owns the place.

I think once you look less like a high school punk. people start expecting you to stop messing around on picnic tables. Ya can't win.

Maybe you can get the teachers and janitor to put in a word for you?

grr, thankfully when you grow older and look less like a highschool punk people leave you alone more. at least a little bit more. good luck with the work, junior year is the toughest year....
