Things you’ve done and accomplished that startled you

Well the other day I was in class arguing with this older guy. He’s basically a muscle bound brute. He’s a little over two years my senior and weighs about….100-130 more pounds than I do. Well, he’s also an idiot. But, he insisted on arguing with me, so I obliged him. The argument was stupid and I only got involved cuz he kept harrying me in everything I did and harassing me in class. Anyway, it turned into a trash talking fest, he says, “You’re a puss.” I say, “You have a low IQ.”

“You’re a faggot,”

“You’re an ignorant bigot…”

“Your just mad cuz you can’t get a girlfriend and I can.”

“Pu-lease, you couldn’t get any action in a monkey-whore house with a sack of bananas!”

“Shut up!”

“You shut up!”

“I’m not the one talking!’

“I wouldn’t have anything to reply to if you weren’t saying anything. You shut up and I wont have anything to say.”

“SHUT UP!”

“You talked!”

“STOP TALKING!”

“TALKED AGAIN!”

At that point this dude lost his temper and tried to bash my face while I was sitting down. I’m a pretty quick little nerd (though a skinny cry-baby, admittedly, making what happened after all the more shocking.) so I dodged over and popped him in the ear. Didn’t even realize what had happened until he was at me again. He throws a punch and I dodge to the side and get a few more shots. Realizing I was so much quicker than him he tries to turn it into a wrestling match. I squirm out of his grasp and slam my forehead into his eye and bust his brow open. He starts to swing so I grab his wrist and punch him in the kidney. I move to repeat this and he catches my hand. We end up in a bit of a stalemate where whoever moves his grasp first gets smacked. My blows are weak but he’s not used to being hit and is already kind of bloody. I’m a chicken and don’t want to get hit, plus this guy is like…250 pounds and I’m like… 120.. (Don’t laugh at my pathetic ness :p) Eventually a teacher breaks the whole thing up.

I’m untouched except the bruise I inflicted on my head and my swollen knuckles. The guy’s got a tooth through his lip, busted brow, slightly blackening eye, and a lump. I was so shocked! I could hardly breath!

But, it was fun, and now I look like a [email protected] out of total luck!

Anyway, I never would have thought I would accomplish a reputation as a good fighter. I figured that I win the writing award at my school (which I did) and my 5 other awards (yes I’m bragging now) but a reputation that is respected by my peers rather than my elders?! Haha!

Not that I’m proud of fighting, cuz its’ a stupid macho boob thing to do, but I was defending myself so…

What about things I’ve done? Once tried to kiss the schools hot-bi-ach! (You know, hot on the outside, cold on the inside) Anyway, this thread is self explanatory. Name something you’ve accomplished that you never thought you could, and something you’ve done that you never thought you would. Discuss, and comment. That kind o junk. Nothing controversial or political about this one, surprised?

I placed first in forensics with a poem I had never read until standing in front of the crowd competing. I still can't figure that one out.

Anything I accomplish startles me, because I never tried.
But well, I ran into trouble a few times and even though I'm a skinny weak girl, those badass guys never actually beat me up for insulting their mothers. I guess I'm kind of glad about that.

Haha. I have a good amount of past fights I could cite. I have to say that I'm pretty proud of those, even though that might sound a little brutish. I'm swear I'm a nice guy, not a muscle-bound-knuckle-headed jackass. I just like to fight, and in my defense I am a martial arts instructor as well.

^it's startling if you didn't think it would happen to you. Being athletic is common, but if I placed in any running sport, I would be suprised.

It was to me. I wasn't exactly doing well at anything then.

^Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. I just meant, I know a lot of people who had that kind of experience, so to me it's not startling. I should have worded it differently.

No offense taken ^^ I'm just glad I got into college shortly after.

I had to wite a 3 page, creative writing assisgnment for my English class and ended up writing a 35 page one instead.
now, this may not be much of a acomplishment, but it was for me. I have a hard time of appreciating anything I write, and it usually gets thrown out my the 5th page.

i got an A+ ^_^

I don't think a 35 page paper is easy for anyone I know it isn't easy for me.
