On Substitute Teaching

So, I have to say, I can't complain too much about substitute teaching so far. There are definitely worse things in this world. In fact, I'd say that my main beef with it is this: having to get up so early in the flippin' morning! That being said, I'll make an end for this post in the usual way.

On Pleasant Surprises

Well, there's not a lot to say at the moment, but I have to say that I'm learning, more and more, that quitting my job was the right decision to make (and I haven't even finished working there yet!). Just today I had a very pleasant surprise regarding a long-term substitute teaching job, and I don't think I'll even have to interview for it! Now there's a good thing, because if they interviewed me, they would probably decide that I suck (because, as I stated previously, I'm terrible at interviewing). So, that being said, things are looking up. It's things like this (and slurpees) that are just nice reminders that God loves me. That being said, I make an end in the usual way:

On Bar Chords

So, it's been a little while, I decided it was high time I posted something. As of late, (okay, like yesterday and today) I've been trying to apply myself to getting bar chords down on the guitar. I'm not sure what my holdup is. I mean, it has been almost two years since I started playing, you'd think I would be able to manage it by now. However, I still play them super slow. And, despite me asking several much more accomplished guitarist if there was a secret to bar chords (really hoping that there would be) they mostly just said that you have to practice them. Crapper. I'm pretty sure they're holding out on me and there really is a secret that I must learn someday. Oh well. That being said, I really don't have a lot to say at the moment and this is kind of a lame post. I make an end with the usual:

Classic me. This is Captain Danger out.

On 2011 (In Photos)

So, one of my friends did a year in review in photos thing on her blog, and I thought that was a good idea. I, therefore, have decided to do something similar, choosing one photo from every month to post. However, since this is Your Substantially Less Frequent Than Daily Dose of Danger, it will be a little bit different. This blog is, after all, the outlet for my narcissism. Thus, every picture will be a picture of me. It's possible that I've posted some of them before. I don't really care. That being said, I give you 2011 in photos!


Yeah, me with two shotguns. I am pretty amazing.


"Oh, were you behind me? I was too busy snowshoeing up this hill to notice, and I couldn't hear you back there over the sound of how awesome I am."


You just can't beat this picture. Analysis on why this picture is so awesome can be found here.


I have a hard time imagining a more epic picture than this one.


First picture with someone else in it. Meet Gavin, my partner for the majority of my adventures.


So, I did a lot of awesome crap in June, but this picture wins, hands-down.


This may be the coolest picture ever taken of me. I may have already said that in this post. Oh well.


Proof that I have at least somewhat conquered my fear of heights, and also that I look like a superhero in a wetsuit.


Part of the reason why this picture is amazing is because of the person I was with.


This photo shows just how I feel about canyoneering.


Um, yeah. Can I just say amazing?


And yeah, you can't argue that the look on my face in this one isn't hilarious. This one is also awesome because of the person I'm with.

So, there you have it. Like I said in my last post, it was a good year. I make an end with one final picture of me, this one from 2010.

This is Captain Danger out.
