    So let me tell you how my day went, but this isn't an ordinary day, and if you follow a long you'll see why it's so interesting, and good.

    So today I had nothing to do at all, completely free. Well my hommie Eric, and I were kicking it. Skating part of the day, and we're like. Yo man we should gather up some wood, and have a fire. Now I live in a town house which is like an apartment, their slightly different, but similar. Anyway! We have this river called the Rock River that is kind of in our Back Yard is probably the best thing to say as we live in a community sort to speak. So we're walking along the coast gathering the twigs sticks and suck that are lying there. Hey good way to have a free fire huh?

    Anyway! As we're picking up these sticks, and twigs I see a chair in the river, and we'll the Rock River is incredibly polluted. No ones allowed to swim in it, and the consolation officers say not to ever eat the fish in the water either.

    So as we got a lot of wood for a good fire I'm like, "Yo man lets clean the coast up?" My hommie's like, "Why?", and I told him that I hate this kind of stuff as you'll see ducks with fishing line in between their feet, and they can't fly. Most of them end up dead. I remember when I was a kid seeing some drunk gay men getting it on their boat, and a whole gas can fell in the river. I mean I even found my bike in the river.

    So my friend, and I started cleaning the river up, and I began to think to set a specific date, where we get a group of people to clean the coast, and another time to clean the city, but as a group walking down the road picking up trash, putting them in a bag, for one to get thrown away, and another that'd be safe to burn, and not harm the air. I'd print a paper where people can sign their names on that date, have the news announce it, and help make it better out here. Also make a video as a commercial, and show people how much harm it's done.

    I'm free for a whole week with no work, and now it's kind of boring sitting at home with nothing to do so this is something I love, and will enjoy doing, as it'll help me embrace my Native American history too. Except within me though.

    Talk about a cool day though huh?
