Whats new since I last posted Lifting and the stratus

Hey everyone
It's been a long while since I have posted and new stuff has been going on. First thing is I will get my AA at the end of the summer and have to decide where to go after Daytona. Looking at Nebaraska again, Central Florida and North Florida.
Second, I won my wieght class in the bench press competition with 275. I went for 300, but broke the bar myself and used more energy than I should have. I was just lucky the body builder didnt show up has he is in my wieght class.
Lastly, The Stratus was in a Hail storm and has dents on every single pannel. The estimate is for 76 hours of labor and a new hood and trunk Every car at school is in the same boat because of golf ball size hail.

Thats what's new with me. Did I miss anything good

Luckily we didn't get any hail where I live and no damage to the car. Everyone near the airport suffered hail damage, though. They got hit pretty hard over there.

275? If I told you how much I press you would laugh.

Congrats Dan, hit Nebraska man. Rescue Big Red!

What hurt me more than anything was 2 days before I had hurt my wrist and could not make a fist or pic anything up. So I packed my wrist in ice and used a wrap, but I'm still in a lot of pain so I hurt something in there. If you get in the gym and keep at it you can go up wasily the key is keeping in the gym, most people quit after a few weeks.

As for the Bondo I guess shops don't use it anymore as much they are going to do some from the bottom side and the rest pull and then level it from what I was told. My car would be a big pile of bondo otherwise
Thanks guys
