    It would seem that every birthday I break something. Last school year was my first year of college. I was involved in an intramural soccer team, and I got really excited about playing! I wasn't too terribly good at the sport, but I enjoyed it and was meeting some new people. That...

    In July 2014 I had a motorcycle accident.

    I broke my forearm in multiple places. The docs pretty much saved the arm using thin plates screwed to my arm but my last visit the x-rays show that 3 screws have broken their heads off allowing the plate to lift off the bone . Chinese screws no doubt bought on eBay
