Broken

So on the 27th of March (Monday night) a couple of friends and I were having some nice and calm drinks. Me sipping the rest of the whisky from a previous night, Jack knocking back the beers and Amy and Georgie drinking cheap rose. Good night.

Started as usual few drinks good music, arguments over what is good music, and ridiculous stories. This took the natural progression of trying to do pull-ups and practising crimps on the wooden beam on the ceiling of the living room, learning to Salsa dance (which was surprisingly easy to grasp the basics), and Waltz (which was so damn hard to get). So the only way to progress from there is to try out some moves Jack learned in this weeks jiu jitsu class.

I, of course, volunteered ans Jack showed us the arm lock you put someone in if they grab your lapels. So half crouched and inebriated i decided that I could defiantly get out of this hold if I twist quickly. Surely Jack would be able to maintain his grip if I did that. Well with no warning I twisted and wound up with a broken arm.

Spiral fracture: 6+ weeks in a cast. Exams coming up in mid May and the end of April.

Yeah not a good move.

I'm a second year Zoology and Conservation student, studying at Bangor University in North Wales. I love Wales for the its opportunities to explore the outdoor, and so frequently go one walks with friends, as well as the odd bit of rock climbing and horse riding. Though on of the great things about where I live are the opportunities to get involved in conservation work out in Snowdonia...
