This past week and the week ahead

So this past week has consisted of hanging out with friends, drive ins, job applications, and school applications. What I am really excited for is my first ever dirt bike race on Saturday. I practiced last saturday and ended up hurting my knee and ankle in the process (I have the bruises to prove it). But I should still be good to go on Saturday, so I am really excited. I am hoping that number 212 isn't taken because thats the number I want. It would stand for 2 surgeries and 12 chemos. Together it makes number 212. My dad said he will be there for the race so he will be able to film, and if so I will be able to post a little video of how it went. I don't plan on doing too good but not too bad either. So wish me luck!
Oh ya! I will also be attending game 3 of the Jazz vs. the Rockets at the Energy Solutions Arena on thursday. My buddy AJ was so kind to invite me. It is going to be an awesome game!
Lastly, I would like everyone to know (especially Jay), that the Penguins were the only team to win the first round 4-0. My main man Sidney Crosby is back and scoring goals.
Well thats all I have for now. Talk to you soon.

Good Evening Nick,
I am thankful that you are keeping all of us "groupies" up to date on Nick outings. Jazz game - motorcross race - when will you ever have time to work? I hope you get number 212 also as I'm going to pray that it represents 21 years of age and 2 years free of cancer. Love you much, aunt Chris

Nick, We are really happy to share your news.

Unfortunately I have some very sad news to comment upon.


I'm so very sorry for you! Yeah, Right!

Of course, The Leafs were never even in the race.

I know a big tall guy who is quite close to you, and just a follicly challenged, who consistently says, "Live Life Deliberately".

God has touched you an the shoulder, and has better plans for you here on Earth. You have lived through a terrible lesson in life, congratulations. Now turn up the wattage and really shine.

Your Canadian Pal.
