People began painting pencils yellow in the 1890's.  The European producer Koh-I-Noor was the first to produce the yellow pencil.  The traditional yellow pencil is not my usual writing instrument of choice.  In my opinion mechanical pencils are far superior to them, but I like using pens more myself.  I really don't doodle that much because I never really acquired the skill to be a good doodler.  The only time I think to use a pencil instead of a pen during the day is when I go to math class in case I make mistakes.  I believe that yellow pencils will always be around because they have been around this long and so many people still use them today.

March Madness

What I have chosen to blog about today is the 2015 Men's Division 1 College Basketball Tournament.  I have filled out probably 6 brackets with a different champion in each of them.  The real bracket that I believe will win me money has Wisconsin as the winner.  On one of my brackets that I filled out on my phone I am ranked 48,564 nationally out of millions and am in the 96th percentile for being correct.  So far my good brackets are in good shape and hopefully they remain good throughout the rest of the tournament.

Not everybody can take a good portrait picture. I believe it is true that you need to have a nice camera to be able to take a professional grade portrait photo.  One thing that is essential to taking a good portrait is the lighting.  It is obviously not easy for anyone to take a good portrait, I think that it is necessary to be trained and have some skill in the art.  Another element that is needed to take a good photo is the background.  A good background with some necessary props can make any photo look better than just stock.

My opinion on cheaters is just dont get caught.  I am not the kind of person to turn people in, that is not really my style.  It might change my thoughts about the certain person, but telling on them is just not cool.  Everybody has cheated in some way in there life so nobody is perfect. So again as long as you do not get caught it doesn't really matter to me if anybody cheats.

The most exciting thing in my life right now is the fact that baseball starts in 1 week.  Sad thing for me though is it's my senior year so it is my final baseball season.  Last year I was the honorable mention on the All-County team for Sand Creek.  I am looking to build upon that and hope to be on the All-County 1st Team or at the very minimum be on the 2nd Team.  I have put the work in during the offseason and my arm and everything is better right now than it has been ever.  I am definitley hoping for a successful injury free and fun baseball season.
