Hey everyone! So it's sadly been a while since my last post. Thanks for all of the Happy Birthday's, it was a good one this year. Things have been goin' really good for me in the last few months. School is great! I bought a new guitar, which I saved for for a while, as well as won a poster contest thing through which I won a $100.00 savingsbond thing, a pat on the back, and a snazzy little plaque that reads, "Duke Metzger...". :) Anyway, I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving this year. There's so much to be thankful for that it's not even funny. We had Thanksgiving at our house this year, so it involved a bit of cleaning (I'm a pretty clean type of person so I didn't have to do near as much cleaning as some). My music has taken me further and further down Instrumental Lane, Just kidding. What I mean is, music has always been a part of my life, but now it seems to be one of the MAIN things. I've been working hard on developing my own style on the mandolin, guitar, and also banjo. It's great fun.
Well, I'll try to post again sooner than this one came sometime. I'm off with my sister and Jady Copeland to attempt a shopping day, on Black Friday. Wish me luck! :)
Have a good one!

Hey Guys! Hope you learned something about me today! :) I'm on Fall Break, which is SO nice! We flew into the Tampa Airport today, which was a smooth flight. I'll try to keep up my posting on here, since I haven't done so in quite sometime now.
Have a great day! :P
Hey guys! It's been a while since I have posted, and I'm sorry to say that I do believe that the reason for this lack is because I have been recently 'drawn in' to Facebook. But, unlike most people, I am still going to continue to remain on Pleonast, till the day I die, haha.
What have I been up to these days? Let see, about a week ago I went to Chicago Camp, which let me tell you, was GREAT! This summer has gone by WAY to fast. I am unfortunately feeling the 'back to school blues.' I got my student I.d. thing today, which was pretty much the last step in preparing for school. My classes seem to fit me very well, not to hard, and not to easy. As a Freshman, this year should be pretty fun, as long as I keep my focus on grades and hard work, which shouldn't be too hard. :)
Hope everybody is doing great!
Here's a quick joke: How do you fix a broken computer? Use computer glue, duh! Haha...
Hey guys, just thought I'd let you all know that I was taken off for Washington D.C. for a little while. My family is goin' for the 4th of July, and also to see my brother who has been working at the White House for the summer. There's a pretty good chance that we will be able to see the fireworks on the south lawn of the white house, so that should be pretty awesome! :)
Well, hope all is GREAT for everyone! Happy 4th! :)
