my name is Isaiah Parker, i used to play baseball, basketball, football, soccer and other random sports. I injured my right shoulder, knees, back, pelvis and forearms, therefore, i am no longer allowed to play sports. I did not like any of the "clubs" or "organizations" at my school so my friend and I brought a robotics club to the school. BEST Robotics competition, you may have heard of it, probobly not. So that is the only "club" i am in. Recently (January 15, 2012) my best friend who i have known for all my life, died and i took a big hit from that. He was walking home and was hit by a train. This is by far the worst event in my life and will never leave my memmory. If you have lost your best friend you can relate if you haven't you can't it is not like your grandma whom you visit once a month or once a year, this is the best friend that you spent every moment possible together. Why was i not there with him then? long story but short, events happened leading to me moving to Alabama. If i had not moved, chances are i would not be here. This of course has changed my view on life.
I live by this statement "what if these were my last words to this person" from this, i try my hardest to be the nicest i can and give everyone a second chance and always apologize if i have hurt someone. My last words to my best friend? "ive got to go" because i wanted to watch tv. (i rarely talked to him because i always thought there would be another tomorrow) now i feel horrible about that, i did not even wait for a goodbye, there is not a granted tomorrow, the only time granted is the time that has passed.
My brother is also an Ambassador Caleb parker or parks, he does not log on anymore that i know of, if you wish to add him you can. He enjoys speaking with new people and would love to meet you.....especially if you are female haha
I went to Hawaii in 2007 and Australia in 2009. Hawaii is by far my most favorite place, Australia has its perks though.
I am not short.....to most, i am 6'1 so if you are taller than me, i am short. haha.
If asked for serious advice, expect a very long, very deep response. i spent one year studying people, girls mostly since they are incredibly complex. but i know the thought process of a guy....since i am one, and i have heard the complaints girls have against us. From this i have learned a lot, i understand people and why people do what they do. If you want to know, just ask.
oh, one more thing, you may think my profile picture is staged or a green screen or something, it is not. I am a volunteer fireman (that is impossible since you are only 16) not quite. At 14 in fact someone can become a fire explorer (same as a fireman just can not run into a burning building. there are of course exceptions) I have lived across from a fire station in Vermont and my father was the fire chief, my brother and I helped with training and such so my brother and i know a bit more than most firemen. (volunteer fireman don't know as much as paid firemen and or can not do what they do as well) wrong again. Paid departments require the same as volunteer departments, the only difference. volunteer departments do not need money to save your house. If you do not pay the taxes to the city to save your house from a fire, the paid department will not help you. they will call a volunteer organization to save your house. However! if your neighbor's house catches on fire from yours and they pay the tax, guess who will come running, the paid department. So anyways, i have been involved with fire fighting since as long as i can remember and i have seen more than i care to re-live.
this is really long so im going to end this right now, good bye and have a lovely day.
