A Pretty Bad/Good Start of the Weekend


That feeling that you get in your heart. That warm, fuzzy, comfy feeling that you get in your stomach. That’s the feeling of the upcoming weekend. 🙂

Yes, as you have heard if you actually LIVE on Planet Earth it is the weekend and if you live in the USA and are reading this post, you KNOW that the weekend is the sure sign of NO school. It would be almost a sin to put school on the weekends because it is our only source of break from the hard week. Unfortunately I’m not feeling as comfortable as I should be feeling. The reason why is because of my RYAP. I’m apparently failing in it again. Now if you are a new reader to my blog and you just read that sentence don’t think automatically that I’m a bad student. I am actually a very well rounded student despite my C in Social Studies and B in ELA. But trust me, before I had ALL A’s. Ain’t that the past. :/ But the reason for my failing is due to the fact that my RYAP is retarded. Yes, I said it, retarded. It was specifically assigned to me or I assigned myself to RYAP because it was said to be designed to prepare yourself for high-schools. When in fact it has done the exact opposite. I have NOT been learning at all. They just ask questions like: “Are you feeling comfortable with your working space?”, “Are you stressed?” “What is the brain called when it thinks about reading”, and more things to come.

The only thing I’ve REALLY studied about high-school and have learned about was when the teachers were asked a question from one of the students asking about how they are nervous about high-school and the teachers said: “It’s just like moving to middle-school when you were in elementary school, it’s not that bad.” And that was it for anything referring to high-school. Plus I seriously think my RYAP teacher hates me. She has given me three letters telling me I’m failing RYAP because I CAN’T catch up with the given schedule in school. Plus the recent assignment she has given me was not even mentioned in the daily newsletter. How was I supposed to know about that? Anyway, let’s drop my rants for a little bit, as I know they get annoying/irritating from time to time. Let’s go back to my Friday day.

I woke up, rather stressed. I still had the failed RYAP test in my mind. Recently I’ve been depressed because of my screwed up grades this year. Since I want to go to the big universities/colleges like Harvard and Georgia Tech, I seriously get depressed or worried when I fail at something, which does not happen to me on a usual basis. Well, Bill Gates was failing in Middle School but he came back in high school and became one of the richest people in the world, making the greatest invention in computer life: Microsoft. Plus, my mother has told me universities don’t look at middle-school and elementary grades. They really look at High-School grades, which means I REALLY need to focus on my school then. By the time, though, I am in high-school I’ll be going to a real high-school. New experience I guess.

Thinking about the RYAP test still makes me moody and unhappy. I rather change topics than rather talk about it now. So anyway, it was a normal school day. There were no classes today, on Friday, cause on Fridays apparently the school decides not to host any classes which I believe is sort of random and weird, but whatever. The teachers know better, what do I know? I know what somnambulism and I know Newton’s First Law of motion or something, I don’t know specifically. 😛

There was not so much special school assignments or school work. Just average work. I do find Fridays as a lazy day because most of the time my school decides to give me just three or four subjects, which is friggin awesome! Since I did not accomplish so many subjects, sort of skipped through them, and did not feel as rounded up in my brain, I decided to catch up on my Latin. Oh yes, I forgot to mention to you guys I attend Latin now. But it’s now not going to be worth the while since I’m leaving half way from the school. I’m sort of “HAPPY” and “SAD”. Happy for the fact that now I feel like Nayyir or SOMEBODY has spread some sort of bad rumor about me (I think it’s the barrels :O) and now whenever I speak on the microphone and finish the room goes completely silent and like one or two people applaud which is very awkward but satisfying for me. Though I do have to admit that I did receive a welcoming applause from almost the whole audience in class. Don’t know why everyone decided to applaud but they did.

Going completely off topic here, but I’m gonna rant a little bit more in school. You might not know the people who participate in school very much and their bio and whatnot, but I’ll explain. The usual, average people that participate on the microphone are Anna Rappaport, Ian Cooper (I think that was his last name), Isaiah Wilkins (I think that was his last name), and plenty more, including me. Now let me tell you something about these people, apparently the school has started this weird, popular trend about who’s the best microphone speaker and apparently Ian Cooper is like the #1 speaker and everybody LOVES listening to him. He most of the time gets like 20+ applauds from the whole classroom. I don’t want to say I’m jealous, but seriously now, he talks normally just like everyone else, except with a little more of a chilled voice and with a faster pace. I don’t understand why he’s so hip and pop! xD I don’t want to start with his looks though, cause I would sound like a person who would judge which I am .. and I am NOT. It’s a weird mix between the two. I’m just gonna leave it where it is. Now Anna on the other hand she is probably the smartest person I know. Fastest reader, smart brain, is always participating in every situation, is confident, and is Asian. Lol. Just wanted to throw the last part out there. But yes, she is smart. We used to be friends back in 7th grade, but now there’s been a completely different tone of attitude and confidence. Maybe she’s hitting her period right now? Dunno. But I think she hates me.

Literally, one time I was about to come up to speak on the microphone and we were in Mrs. Bey’s classroom (my ELA [language arts] teacher) and Anna at the same time had the moderator privileges which were like the big “teacher” powers entrusted into the good people. So as I got on the microphone and spoke about two minutes of boring paragraphs I get off the microphone and apparently I see like 30+ confused faces and I start feeling the same way too! What did I do? I’m thinking. Then Anna gets on the microphone and says:

“I think your microphone is messed up–” and then she broke off into this sort of chuckle or laugh and pulled of the microphone.

I think she finds me as weak or something, which IS sort of true cause she is apparently #5 in the world’s lethal weapons training, so if we were to meet she’d probably kick my butt off the face of the Earth. But don’t worry my bros, Andrew’s ninja skills will prevail! 😀

Okay now that I’ve ranted about two to three paragraphs of worthless ranting text, I’ll get back to the day. So as the school continued and I sort of skipped through most of them I found that I was learning a completely NEW set of Latin words (continuing onto me doing Latin). I think I had like 15 words to memorize and I was like FORGET THAT! I just noted them all down, wrote their pronounciation, and then wrote their definition. Done. After school was sort of over my parents had decided to leave and buy a rug for the new living room in the house, so I got like 1 to 2 hours of gaming time. It was pretty awesome. Played some MW3 and relaxed a bit. Once they got back home I helped my father load the rug in and surprisingly they also bought a mattress for the eldest sister, Patricia. Apparently she had been sleeping on a hard-mattress so they needed to spend their money on the mattress. Once that was done the day proceeded on. I’m not going to mention too much of what happened except the major important parts.

Later on I decided to watch Twilight with my sisters and mother jut for the heck of it. Then I took a shower, my mother made us about 40 chocolate peanut butter Ritz cookies along with some chocolate balls. No racist. Lol. I need to take a picture I’m serious! Then eventually near the end of the day as I was playing a little bit more on my PS3 I had received some bad news but had a good thing happen to me. My friend Sebastian and a few of his family members were going to come over during Saturday (which was the event I was looking forward to the most). Sebastian’s mother was going to make some cookies with my mother as a early-Christmas treat, Sebastian, Matthew, and I would play video games nonstop, and my sisters and Sebastian’s sister Sophie would play together. Unfortunately Sebastian’s mother called and said it would have to be cancelled abruptly. It put me in a bummer mood, but easily I was alleviated from the moody mood by joining a Black Ops Nuketown Domination game. It was complete madness. I got my first 50+ gameplay. I was so happy after that.

So yeah, weird start to the week, and sorry for the late post. Gotta get to my life, you know. xD See you guys later, wherever you are, have a great time and enjoy your day/night. Bye!

I Am Happy :D


Hey guys, Andrew here, bringing you a new post about my day. So let’s get to it!

As you can tell, by the title, I’m pretty happy. Reason being is that .. well let’ me explain further back about the day. Before the day started, which was evening yesterday, the day I wrote you the last post before this post. I said that I was going to probably, finally finish the book “To Kill a Mockingbird”. And I did. I felt so happy for two reasons. One, the ending of the book was great. Love the book. Give it 5 stars. Two, I actually finished this 463 paged book in less than 4 days, which is very surprising due to the fact that I have been lazy. Now I probably AM getting into the swing of my old ways. Reading books and all. Getting amazing grades. I would love to see that old me back. But my happiness had not stopped. Continue reading …

Just as I finished the book it was about 1 AM in the morning and my parents had come upstairs to greet me. I had told them my throat hurt, cause randomly it felt empty and dry and it stung the vocal cord (if I have one) of my throat. My mother handed me a sort of medicine to ooze the night so I wouldn’t be too distracted with the pain. No matter how badly it tasted it, I knew it was gonna be worth it. And worth it, it was. I slept through the night so well, a man could have killed me in my sleep and I would not have noticed it. Once I had woken up from my dreary sleep I still had felt somnolent when my mother woke me up. If you don’t know what somnolent is (I think Mary-Kate does), then let me explain: It means when you’re in a sleepy stage. Drowsy, sort of. My mother had given me 5 more minutes to re-cooperate until the medicine would wear off. Unfortunately that took more than 30 minutes, making me miss my math class. In reality, though, I wasn’t worried. At first I was, but then when I saw it was a review I had calmed. So I decided to work on a few of my subjects.

I had completed my Literature “To Kill a Mockingbird” assignment for yesterday and was acknowledged that I was going to be taking the big test, testing to see if I really comprehended or in other words understood the book very well. So crossed fingers for that! I did a Science lesson today on, I believe, Newton’s Laws of Motion and actually memorized the first law and I believe the second part as well. Let’s see if I remember:

“Newton’s First Law states that an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force.”

And “Newton’s second part of the First Law states that an object in straight-line motion will remained in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force.”

I am so smart. c:

So I did the lesson and surprisingly as I did the quiz for the lesson I got an exceeding grade of 100% on the lesson. I could of, most likely, gotten an 80% grade because there was this particular question that needed your undivided attention in order to answer correctly. I almost gave up on it cause it took 10 minutes for me to focus on that particular question, but I decided this: If I miss this question, no matter how unsure I am, at least I’ll go down knowing I was comfortable about my decision. And comfortable I was when I received the perfect score of 100%. So far, a lot of happy things were coming in my way. I had attended, after I had finished my subjects, a Physical Science test. God, it felt SO long, I could not believe it. I felt instead of an hour spent, I felt like I was there for three hours. Maybe the teacher wasn’t teaching me right, or maybe I was too lazy. I don’t know, I did NOT care at the moment. I just wanted to get the survey and be done with it. Before, in our school, if you were bored with a class you could leave and claim you attended it. Now we gotta check in with every class on surveys. It ruins my plan…

After that I took a Math lesson and jeez it was hard. It was teaching me how to solve inequality expressions when there are more than one variables on each side of the equation. Of course, my brain could not take it, so I failed, retook it, and passed. God, now when I’m in public school I won’t be able to retake a test. Wonder what I’m gonna do then. :/ Once I finished that lesson I moved on to my Vocabulary and surprisingly enough I easily got a perfect grade of 100% on my quiz. Another amazing thing to be happy about. I’m officially going to categorize this day/post as “Beautiful Life”. Lol.

I took a GML class afterwards and then finished my last few subjects. I had a Unit Assessment test (big test for unit) for Georgia Studies and GUM (Grammar Usage Mechanics). I failed GUM, purposely and redid the test. Surprisingly, again, I did Georgia Studies and actually made 80% grade. Missing a few questions only. Honestly, I thought I was gonna fail, but I guess I did understand the unit a bit! At least I passed it. So I’m happy. After that was accomplished my school was over and I got to relax. Eventually, my parents got into a quick argument in which my mother stormed out of the house (cause she had to meet up with a friend anyway) and left. Once she came back her face was expressionless (which was not a good sign) and she felt drowsy. In result, she took a quick nap. I relaxed a bit, played on the guitar, without the amp of course, and had a chilled time. My day resumed greatly as I never expected. Once she woke up, my mother had the fine feeling of going back to her old days and start cooking cookies, cakes, and special deserts.

She would always do it on Thanksgiving or Christmas, but it had been so long since then, I almost forgot she did it. She made 16 dark, soft, chocolate chip cookies with small marshmallows in them. It was almost a crime she had committed, making us eat dinner before them. She served us a full potato unraveled, some onions and some chicken. A simple but healthy meal. Once we had gulped or chewed our food, my mother offered me two of her AMAZING cookies. God they were so good. Tomorrow I’ll get you pictures of them. But they felt like no other cookie I had eaten before. One of the things I was proud of, from my mother, was her talent in cooking.

After that had taken place, my mother later on was watching a desert show on TLC or something. I don’t remember.. But she did and got inspired with another amazing idea. She warmed up 4-5 popcorn bags and decided to add, I think, some sort of honey or fudge or cream. I can’t remember, but I can. Dang it. Y U NO WORK MEMORY?! But yeah, it tasted nice! Especially while watching the desert show I felt no jealousy. So I think my mother did a nice job. So yeah, now all of the events have led up to here. I shall be leaving, there’s nothing for me to read, which is kind of good and kind of bad. Leave a comment, if you want to, about which book you think I should read. That would be awesome, I’m thinking about re-reading the Eragon book properly since I did a lazy job on that. So yes, see you guys later! Have a great day/night wherever you are! Bye!

Pretty Interesting, Yet Boring, But Busy Day


I felt like since I haven’t posted as much and I am receiving a great deal of views I thought it best to talk about my day and as it progressed.

Most of it was mainly occupied with school. But I had a great sleep last night. I’m actually enjoying the new house, I don’t know when (when I get my room ACTUALLY cleaned up), but I’m bound to post some pictures of my house. And I’ll have to start putting updates on my “About” pages and stuff like that. But otherwise, school occupied the majority of my day. I kind of skipped over subjects, though, today. Did not really study them cause I was a bit drawn into seeing a few Youtube videos. I am, without a doubt, pretty addictive to Youtube. Just can’t stop watching gameplays. Eventually, though, I’ll have to stop viewing Youtube until the weekends, or at LEAST near the end of the day when I’m done with school.

I did feel good about myself, though, about the fact that I did my PRACTICE “Mock Writing Test” and it took altogether 30 minutes for me to write about 4-5 long paragraphs on an actual sheet of paper about a randomly generated topic/subject the teacher assigned to us. We were supposed to be writing about how yearbooks were being removed from our ideal school because they were too expensive, seemed unimportant, etc. So I decided to go full on with it. First we did like 20-15 minutes of brainstorming about the topic, basically writing down or jotting down ideas of what we were going to write for each of our paragraphs and how the introduction and conclusion was going to start or end the ideas. I felt that I did very well, though. I wrote about 3 LONG paragraphs mainly talking about how to “reduce” the price of the yearbooks by minimizing the amount of space that most yearbooks have of empty space and their unnecessary expensive texture in the books. And especially when the government could put some tax cuts on the yearbooks. Then I wrote another paragraph about how yearbooks are importantly vital to students. After that, I wrote a paragraph about how the students benefit educationally from the yearbooks, then furthermore there was the conclusion. Ya-da-ya-da-da.

So after having a great boost jump in my morning I was easily put down for a few hours when I got into a random fight with my parents because I had NOT had breakfast at all, so I decided to pick a few cereal pieces from the bags as my was cooking pizza (it was 12:00-1:00). Apparently, parents do not approve at all of this act, which I was taken aback by. So as the five minute argument proceeded eventually my father just yelled me out ferociously (something he wouldn’t do) and called me a baby for not having the capability for making my own sandwich. Groovy, eh?

School proceeded, skipped over a few subjects, but decided to focus primarily on some Math. I got 88% out of 100% on a Math Mid-Unit Assessment (which is basically the mid-test for the big test that tests how much you’ve learned over the unit), which means I missed one question out of I believe 10 or 12 questions. Dunno, but I felt pretty good cause I had no review and was in no shape or mind to be getting any 100% grades. I had already done that yesterday on Study Island. Just for the lawls, though, I decided to attend a GML Study Island Class and see if I could learn anything from people’s mistakes. Unfortunately, most of the time I try to attend GML classes I’m always found bored and not learning from anybody else’s mistakes, so I thought this was probably going to be a waste of my time. Surprisingly enough, I found myself actually reviewing over Scientific Notation because a student named Maliah or something like that was struggling with it. I do have to agree with her, though. That topic was pretty hard on me and I found it pretty difficult. So hey! Learned something new from GML today, pretty interesting…

After that I decided to practice on my Fender guitar and started to mess around a bit with the guitar chords and tune it a little differently than from standard tuning. I, amazingly, made the guitar sound sort of like a hard-core rock/metal sound. I guess I could describe it as being a sort of Linkin Park sound or Breaking Benjamin. Can’t think of any other rock-core bands since ALL I’ve been listening to is Dubstep. God that music is the stuff. I can head-bang to almost every song in the Dubstep category because I’m that kind of person that likes intense, in your face music. I do get a little tired of it sometimes and listen to some classic Romanian, Spanish, or piano music. But let’s not get to sidetracked from the topic. Back to day. 😛

After I practiced and played a few songs such as Crazy Train from Ozzy Osbourne, Smells Like Teen Spirit from Nirvana, and All the Small Things from Blink 182 (best rock song I’ve heard in awhile, but Linkin Park is still one of my most favorite bands in the world), I continued with school, did a Study Island (averaged with an 88 or 87% grade, wasn’t in the mood, like I said), and finished most of my subjects. Though, during the middle of the day, as the sun shone brightly, my parents left the house for about two hours. And what that means is vital for you to know: two hours of gaming time! 😄 Yes, like the naught person I am, I DID game for about two hours. Unfortunately most of the time was spent raging at stupid campers and shotgun noobs. God, thinking of them now strains my forehead veins. Lol.

Once I had finished that, I decided to just do a few subjects with Anabelle and Matthew, which none of them I really did properly with because I was too busy playing video games (yes, my parents did leave the house again for another few hours). But I do have to say, I learn some nice things from teaching Matthew and Anabelle things I was not able to be taught at their age (mainly cause I was learning the complicated stuff like biology and just drew, because back then I was REALLY home-schooled. This home-schooled is COMPLETELY different). I took a shower after that and did a few naughty things in the shower I must not confess to my blog. Seeing as there are other people who read this and may get offended. Pfft. xD Just joking, I just washed my man genitals. 😀

After that, my siblings were nice enough to clean the house up.

Now that is all for today, I must finish my Reading assignment which I always accomplish late at night. Reading “To Kill a Mockingbird” and about 4 chapters I believe. I think I’m going to finish tonight, dunno guys. Anyway, see ya, have a great time wherever you are, and yeah, bye! 🙂

BLOG GLITCH?


Hey guys, Andrew here, bringing you a new post. Yes, I know, it’s been awhile. The reason WHY I visit my blog once in awhile is because it used to be a hobby I loved doing, which I think NOW, the reason why I don’t love it anymore, is because I’m too lazy. Now that’s the cold truth. 🙂

Anyway just wanted to tell you guys that apparently there seems to be a glitch on my blog. It says, in short, at the top right corner of the blog, that I have 300+ followers. Now let me tell you something extremely shocking.

I

DON’T

HAVE

THAT

MANY

FOLLOWERS!

:O

Yes, it’s true, the fact is shocking! But yeah, I’m not that famous guys. Well, actually, that statement sounds very hypocritical, but at the same time I want to be humble and tell you the truth. I only have a staggering number of 35 followers on my blog in real life. But somehow I receive about 50+ views everyday on my blog. I was checking my blog stats today and I saw that I had hit 215 views approximately in one day! How that happened is unexplained at the moment, but it happened.

So that’s all my followers, I shall be signing off, and then I’ll have to be taking care of the editing of this post. Stupid tags …

Anyway, see you guys! And may the odds be EVER in your favor! Bye! 😀
