In a desperate attempt

to find something interesting to blog, I went to and took a random quiz. However, it was apparently completely inaccurate, as it claimed that I would best be described in the dog world as a chihuahua puppy.

Um... NOT.

So, without further adieu, and no preparation on his part, I am turning this post over to...

(drum roll please...)

Dustin! He often says he needs a blog. Let's see what he can do.

Hang on, I have to go make his day and tell him he can blog on my laptop.

Hi Mom, nah just kidding. Hello, I'm Dustin Jones, I'm in the 7th grade and I need a blog. Okay, maybe I don't NEED one but it would be nice to have. Then I could share with the world how crazy and hectic my life is. Let me give you the details.

I compete in the FIRST Lego League. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology) is a company the holds robotics competitions. Lego League is one of the divisions of FIRST. Last year my team and I did very good. We made it all the way to the world competition. Boy, with 10 kids and 8 adults walking the streets of Atlanta Georgia, sometimes we looked like an angry mob. We placed 68th out of 82 but the experience was just too cool.

I competed in Middle School Soccer. That was a blast! We probably lost more won but man, we didn't lose to Livermore. For all those of you that haven't lived in the tiny town of Jay Me, Livermore Falls is our schools arch rival. The first game we played them, we tied 2-2 but we came through and beat them 3-2 at our field. Yup, soccer was fun.

I'm taking High School algebra 1 in 7th grade. Now most kids take algebra 1 in ninth grade, but I've been in my school's Gifted and Talented (GT) Mathematics Program since the third grade. In sixth grade I would practically fall asleep during math class because I already knew everything that they were teaching. If I stay on the course my teacher, Mr. Taylor, has me on right now I'll be taking college calculus my senior year.

Here's some more random stuff about me. I have 3, not 1, not 2, but 3 younger brothers who like to annoy the begeebers out of me. I love to build, Lego's, K'Nex, Lego's, Erector Sets, Lego's, did I mention Lego's, I Love Lego's. They're the best thing ever (except indoor plumbing). I've got the best friends a kid could ever have (4 of which were on my Lego League team last year). With all this stuff, I should write a book. Oh! I HATE writing!!!!!!!!!!!!

With all the things I've got going on I need a blog. Don't you agree?

Hi Dustin. Maybe with all these fun things you have going on you don't need a blog! You wouldn't have time!

It was nice to meet you!

Sorry to tell you kiddo, but blogging involves a lot of writing, so if you hate writing, you're in soooo much trouble.

Dustin, while I don't see blogging as a need, maybe you could talk Mom into it by telling her you are working on your writing skills, since you are already excelling in Math. That's why Emily has one....oops, I probably wasn't supposed to tell you that. Lol.
