A Korean Festival!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. The song/video for today is a song called Royals by Lorde. I just realized that I’ve listened/jammed to this song for a long time and have never gotten the time to present it to you guys who are reading this. So here it is! Enjoy!

So today was a pretty good day. I got a lot of things done today. First of all, I got to wake up around 7 o’clock in the morning and ate some breakfast. Then right after I tried to watch some Walking Dead episodes on Netflix when my Dad decided to come downstairs and sit down on the couch. Now I was afraid if my Dad started watching he would not approve of the gore and then have evidence that my show isn’t entertaining or worthwhile watching, which would then lead into some other problems. I gave up trying to watch The Walking Dead and went on Youtube to listen to some music. Eminem has been my primary man to listen to for the past few days.

After about an hour, my Mom came downstairs and prompted me to go read some religious book for about an hour to pay off my computer time or so I could play Minecraft. I couldn’t find the book “The Ragamuffin Gospel” so my Mom gave me this other book called “40 Days Living the Jesus Creed”. I actually, without a doubt, enjoy reading some religious books, because they open my eyes to my relationship with God and gives me a greater confidence in God. Once I passed by the 1 hour mark, I wanted to continue reading the book and reach page 100 and then finish the chapter within page 100. Page 100 was apparently half of the book (the book is about 206 pages), so when I came to my Mom and said I read 100 pages of the book she was shocked because I could just finish the book tomorrow easy. I got 1 hour and 39 minutes of reading time to finish all 100 pages and actually comprehend every word I was reading. I find it impossible to see that people read whole books in one day. I am capable of reading a whole book in one day, but eventually I get bored and lose my motivation to read. I have only so far read 100 pages on a book in one day.

I played about an hour on Minecraft and then got off. I was planning to go out and run for 25 minutes to get my muscles in shape. I feel like I’m getting fatter every Saturday and plus recently I’ve been getting a lot of calf muscle spasms. I mean excruciating muscle spasm. Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night, I stretch my body on command and apparently I seemed to contract a certain muscle on one of my legs which tightens the muscle to a painful point. It’s really painful cause I have to endure it and hope for it to fade away in the next 20 seconds. I’m really worried about the spasms, though. I talked to my Mom recently about it and she said that my legs are used to having blood pump a lot of on a consistent basis since I ran Cross Country till now. That makes sense, but it still makes me nervous to move certain parts of my muscles.

I played Skyrim afterwards for a whole hour and journeyed a lot in the game. I managed to defeat a great Bandit Chief in the game and received a lot of gold. I also found Ebony armor in a chest as I was meandering through the country. Most of what I’m saying you will probably not understand because it’s geek stuff. But thumbs up if you’re following along. I also stumbled upon a house on the farm on the side of a mountain towering over a lake. I entered the house and stole all the gold and valuables I could since it was in the dark. To my surprise, when I exited the house a “Bodyguard” (assuming it was guarding the house) came and attacked me. I killed him easily, decapitating him with a few simple clicks on the PS3 remote, but it was just a weird encounter since I don’t usually have people come and attack me besides the residents of the house themselves. I went back to Riften and started selling more armor and traveled through more caves until my 1 hour went up. There’s so much I can do in 1 hour in Skyrim. It feels awesome!

Once I finished playing, my Mom took my Dad and my brother and sister Anabelle (Patricia wasn’t with us cause right now she’s at Frequency) to Chik-fil-A. I didn’t go because I wanted to grab the opportunity to watch some Walking Dead episodes and work on homework with some peace and quiet. The struggle is, usually, that I always hear creaks from upstairs in my house, which always freak me out because the creaks almost sound like they’re caused by footsteps. Usually when I play the TV on a pretty loud volume mark the noise is drowned away and I can relax doing my things.

Randomly, my Mom decides to call me and says that she wants me to run to Chik-fil-A. I was hesitant (real hesitant) since I wanted to spend time in the house, but I wanted to go and run and do something I wouldn’t do normally. Eventually, I was convinced and ran to Chik-fil-A (they gave me directions to the place), which was about a mile run. So since I was in Cross Country for a period I was not tired at all after running the mile. Rather I felt energized and wanted to run some more. I did have troubles breathing on the way since I got a sore throat around the morning of today. Once I arrived at the store, I talked with my parents a little bit while Matthew (my brother) and Anabelle (my sister) got on the play-house in the corner of the store. Eventually I convinced my parents to buy me a nice cookies n cream ice-cream which I shared half of to my Mom since I didn’t want to ruin my nice run feel.

We were planning to go to the library afterwards, but unfortunately the library was closed the exact hour we decided to check the closing schedules for the nearby library. So, instead, we decided to go to the downtown Suwanee park and turns out there was A Korean Festival!¬†At first, I felt awkward going there, being the only white boy with hippie pants on and a Nike sweat-shirt, but then again a lot of the Koreans there were wearing pimp clothes and Adidas shoes, so I didn’t feel so out of the ordinary. Matthew and Anabelle went into the jumpy house nearby and my Mom, Dad, and I sat on the short half slabs that served as seats in front of the stage. Turns out it was a talent show for Koreans. A lot of the performances were nice just not great. Mostly because the amplifiers were either too loud and static or they were too soft. I left before I could see the results of who won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. I practiced on some parkour on some high stone concrete and turns out I am completely out of shape. I am disappointed in myself truly.

When 7 o’clock arrived, we left the area and arrived home. Then my brother and sister got into separate baths to clean themselves of their sweaty bodies. And that was pretty much it for today!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

“Scratch” Is Such a Pain in the A*s


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. This post is going to be quite interesting, taking in mind that I am basically pissed off with a few things and have taken the liberty into actually plugging in a curse word in the title. It’s PG guys, since I censored it. So, calm down. I also am aware that I haven’t posted to you guys in a long while, I planned to post to you guys everyday since the last post, but school and video games distracted me, therefore postponing your posts. I’ll try to work on posting everyday for a whole week and get into the jist of it. I’ll try to put it in my reminder book. Anyway, the song/video of today is a song called “What Does The Fox Say?” from someone I don’t care about. The only reason I have decided to show this song/video to you guys is because I want an opinion from you guys. What do you think of the song. I bet if Michael reads this he’ll say he loves the song since he’s such a band-wagoner. ūüėÄ Just kidding. Love you Michael! But anyway, leave your opinions if you feel like it!

So, the few days have been pretty eventful to say the least. It’s kind of disappointing that¬†I can’t retell to you guys what happened over this school week (I could, just don’t have the time to). But oh well, I’ll make due with what I have. I woke up around 5:30, just like any other school day, and got dressed up in something nice. Recently, I began wearing jeans with some sweaters or dark outfits to kind of impose as a serious type of guy when I go to school. I wore some nice jeans that were tight on me and kind of showed the length of my legs in a very lean way. Then I wore a Gothic sweater with lots of cool gangster style texts, which also made my shoulders seem more broad and thicker. I liked the style of clothes I was wearing. I brought a Basketball T-shirt and some white gym shorts with me for P.E. and stashed it in my backpack. Once I gathered most of my school supplies and clothes, I watched some Youtube videos to let the time pass by and to see if any of my favorite Youtubers had any new videos updated. I also listened to some Eminem and his new songs “Rap God” and “Survival”. Gosh they are my favorite songs!

Once the time reached 6 o’clock, my Mom woke up and told me to go brush my teeth and wash my face (my normal procedure before I put on my acne creme). Once that was finished she rubbed some acne creme on me and then let the rest of the creme dry into my skin. The treatment really did improve my skin. My forehead felt nearly flawless, which became a temptation for me to touch my forehead on a consistent basis. When the creme dried up, my Dad came downstairs and got his lunch sandwich from my Mom that she usually makes for him when he goes to work and then left the house. My Mom had me sit down on the couch and prayed for me for my day. I really appreciated the fact that she prayed and I really have no problem praying. I actually prefer praying (more by myself), but I guess in the morning it kind of bugs me and I give my Mom a hard time. When she finished her praying, I gave my Mom a hug and a kiss on the cheek, then made my way out of the house. It was 6:26, 5 minutes before the bus would arrive. Markel met up with me, coincidentally, down the street to our bus-stop and eventually Sarah followed me from behind and all 3 of us gathered around and talked. The girl (who I don’t have a name of) who also gets off and on the bus on our bus-stop came outside and stood awkwardly a distance from us. I feel like we’re kind of neglecting her, and I want to be friendly to her, I just don’t know if Markel or Sarah will accept her. Actually, now that I think about it, I don’t care.

Once the bus came, we got on and I found a seat next to an Asian man who was sleeping, but seemed disturbed and angry simultaneously when I sat next to him. Thankfully, he said nothing to grab anyone’s attention on the quiet bus. Sarah sat right behind me by a row of seats. Markel sat side by side with me on another row of seats on my right. The bus-drive drove us to the school and then we arrived I was glad to be out of the bus. I hate how quiet the bus gets, because everyone is so quiet and if you make a single noise someone will you give you the pissed off look. Ugh. Just dislike it so much. When I got off the bus, Markel waited for me and walked inside the school and also met up with Erick (a good friend of mine). who eventually left us when we were on the way to the line to the breakfast isle. They gave out pancakes, which was pretty awesome and I took an orange juice for a siding. After we departed ways to our classrooms, I went to Gym (my first period, P.E.) and waited with Chris for the period to start. Keila (a good girl who is a friend of mine) came to sit with us like usual and we talked of random things throughout the whole time until Tiffany and Keila’s blond friend came around like they usually do and talk to her, distracting her from us. I don’t find it to be a problem, it just sort of annoys me when I think about it. Coach Pierce (our P.E. teacher) called roll on us (checked attendance on us) and then we went inside the locker rooms to change up and come out to play some basketball.

I made a lot of nice shots that proved to impress Jaylen (a fat dark-skinned boy in our P.E. class), Daniel (another dark-skinned boy in P.E.), and Terrence (also another dark-skinned boy in my P.E. class). Eventually, I saw my friend Anila shooting basketball shots by herself in the corner of the court (we have 6 basketball hoops that hang off a large rope and metal rod from the ceiling). I went up to her and tried to cheer her up by acting like my stupid self in Biology. She was entertained and eventually her friend came back. Danielle and Selena (a pair of my friends from last year in Creekland) came also to me and we shot some basketballs until the period ended and we had to get changed up again. I decided to take off my Gothic sweater since I was so sweaty and wear a basic dragon T-shirt to my next period.

Honors Language Arts was pretty easy today. Not too much work. We just had to do our Bellwork, SSR reading, Vocab sheet filling, and then continue reading the Odyssey. We had no homework for the class and we got some of our grades back. I got 100% for all the papers that were given to me. One of the papers was a classwork noting paper and another was a vocab test we took. I didn’t feel too special about it, since I usually make 100% on those type of stuff. I had to continue to make 100% grades in class in order to get an A.

Honors Biology was one of the easiest classes of the day. We just had to finish our Procedure and Conclusion information off the chemical lab we did yesterday. I mixed up a bunch of samples of Iodine with supposed human “digested water” and see what responses I received. She gave us some more tips to getting some better grades and what to do over the weekend and that was the jist of today.

Math was one of the hardest classes today. Recently, we just started a new unit where we were solving graphs by using y=ab to the power of x (can’t add x as an exponent on this keyboard). That part of the subject was easy so far, but now we’re learning about translations, dilations, shifts and then horizontal and verticals compressions and stretches. It’s just a hot mess. She gave us 2 packets of homework, which is like, really? I have a life outside of school. I also got to sell a poptart in Math class to a guy in both my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th periods. I know I didn’t tell you guys about it before, but my Mom bought two boxes of poptarts (limited edition) and wanted me to sell them and make profit. According to my calculated sales, I would be making $8 profit by just selling a whole box of poptarts including the $4 I have to pay to get a box. So it’s a nice and good profit to make. I also sold a poptart to my friend Nasir in Honors Language Arts. Forgot to mention that. ūüėõ

French was a pretty stressful subject today because turns out we had to do homework from two days (which I did, but threw away since she didn’t find it a relevant and important piece till now) allover again. Then we almost were all given silent work because Manny in my class kept talking and distracting most of us.

Digital Technology was probably one of the most stressful and hard classes today. I’m 2 games behind. I’m supposed to create a cool “Diver Race” game in Scratch mode and editing with some cool features but apparently I have to finish my Baby Catch project because Baby Catch is just being plain stupid and glitchy. Scratch is just getting so much on my nerves. I could easily explain to you guys what in Scratch is stressing me but you probably wouldn’t understand, so let’s just leave it at “Scratch” is such a pain in the a*s. Now I’m forced to go home and download Scratch and try to fix the problem and glitch. Gosh, my life is just beautiful ain’t it? I got to leave to the bus today and it was kind of awkward because Sarah is in the class next to me and she was a hugging Alexis from my class. It’s not that I like her, I just don’t know if I should say “hi” or walk away awkwardly cause she gives me that nasty look every time she’s around her friends, so I just decided to walk away and go to the bus.

Throughout the bus drive some of the seniors in the back were talking, while I just relaxed on my occupied seat. When we arrived to our neighborhood, Markel and I talked to our new friend Eric (I believe that’s how you spell it). He’s, I believe, our third friend we’ve had called “Eric” in general. When it came to my bus-stop, Sarah and I got off while Markel dropped off to another bus-stop since that’s the one closest to his house. Sarah seemed really upset, so I just walked to my house and then greeted my Mom. I sat down at the computer and listened to a lot of music to entertain myself. Then I went outside to warm up on my some basketball skills for the upcoming basketball tryouts for Collins Hill. Sarah came out and wanted me to get Joanna from my house (Joanna was inside because she was talking to Patricia [my sister]). Then she talked to me like a normal person. Weird. Later on in the day she explained that she was just upset with a friend and now she was fine. We both got Markel out and started hanging out, shooting some basketball hoops and then went inside around 7:00 o’clock in the evening. And that was pretty much it from the day!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Great, an Injury!


Hey guys! Andrew here bringing you a new post of my daily life. Apolgies for that. I was busy and turns out, when I was supposed to go to the library, we had a lesson for advisement, which is apparently every Tuesday on the week. So¬†I came late to the library and tried to post something, but I only got about 4 paragraphs down in about 10-15 minutes and then had to go to Lunch.¬†It doesn’t mean that I’ve¬†completely given up¬†on you guys, don’t worry. But the song/video I wanted to present to you guys for today was a¬†song called “Uppers” (a¬†Trap song)¬†from Stooki Sound and Mr Carmack. Two very brilliant Trap¬†artisits¬†that I believe you should go and listen to if¬†you’re interested in listening to some good trap music.¬†This song has amazing and booming¬†bass¬†that will blow you Trap fans away! Enjoy.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYfqFj0IUlE

So today was pretty simple and organized. For once . . . I¬†asked my Mom yesterday if she¬†could drive me early to the school because I¬†couldn’t walk to school or go to the bus-stop for neighborhood since I had an injury. Oh, and I will explain near the end how I got the injury. Don’t worry. I¬†also needed a ride¬†to my high-school early so I could¬†finish my¬†Mythology PowerPoint project. I did get a ready, but instead from my Dad.¬†I actually am growing quite fond of talking to my Dad. Even though he’s always on my case about my diction and how I need to pronounce my words better (when actually he just can’t admit his hearing is getting worse), I still have great conversations with him in the matter of 10 minutes. I feel like I can tell my Dad anything and he won’t force his opinion on me like my Mom. No doubt that my Mom is easier to talk to, I still feel more relaxed talking to my Dad.

We talked about random stuff on the way to the school until he had to drop me off. Today, I brought my green Cross Country gym bag with a pair of my best shoes in them because a friend of mine at P.E. wanted to rent my shoes for 3 days for $5. It sounded like a perfect idea because he really liked the shoes and I would make a starting profit so I could start my PopTart business. So, having a backpack on my back, and a gym bag on my arm, I walked so confidently, ready to make business. I went to the Media Center library at my high-school and worked on the project, finishing the last touches.

In P.E. the guy I was supposed to meet actually forgot to bring the money, which was a big downfall on my side. Thankfully, I also brought 50 cents with me to pay my overdue book. P.E. wasn’t really fun or interesting. I just made shots and gossiped with some of my gal-friends. God, that sounded gay. It was pretty dreadful to waste my time over there and not do something productive with¬†my 1 hour in P.E..

In Honors Language Arts, we did our Bellwork like usual (this time I actually got 98% of the bellwork correct today. After that we did our SSR Reading. I believe our SSR Reading is one day then the day after the next day, if I’m right or if that makes sense. I’m reading Beyonders or “A World Without Heroes” (never¬†can tell which one is the title since they’re both in big bold text). It’s a really good book to be honest. I’m halfway through the book and I’m reading it really slow, so I could have been done with the book about a week and a half ago. It’s a really good book so far, and the details that are put into the book¬†that describe the setting, mood, etc of the book really amaze me, plus I learn some new vocabulary words. After our SSR Reading, we went to the Media Center Library to work on our Mythology projects. Thankfully I finished it, so now all I could do was check with Coach Dawson (my Language Arts teacher)¬†to see if what I was doing right or wrong and just to proofread and edit. I finished it then turned it in. I think I’m one of the few that finished the project sooner than most.

Biology was confusing today, cause Mrs. Labocetta kept making me try to make assumptions on our directions of the paper, which pisses me off because everyone seems to know what she means and I seem like the stupid one in the whole situation. I’ll always have to work hard and put effort for everything. That’s just me! Though, the only reason why I put up with Biology is because:

#1: I’m patient.¬†More than others.

#2: I like Biology and Sciences.

#3: We’re do a Chemistry lab focusing on the molecules and chemicals formed in a structural method.

#4: I just sound smart saying #3, which makes me feel good about myself.

She then told us that we had to turn in our Mid-Term Reviews based on the sheets that she gave us today, which kind of puts me on my tipping point because it reminds of the review that I finished for the Unit 2 Test and I had it ready to turn in on that day, but I didn’t hear say we had to turn in the study guide anywhere. No indication. Not even an announcement, but yet everyone else knew they had to turn in their Study Guide. I’m gonna get a 0% on it, what the freak! I even explained my story and she said “I don’t accept late study-guides”. Gosh, fml.

Math was making a lot more sense. Mrs. Medina (the Math teacher) reviewed over the homework she gave us yesterday, and thankfully I got the majority of the answers correct. It gave me a confidence booster. When we were finished reviewing over the homework, she gave us the quiz we were supposed to be taking today. It was hard immediately when I looked at the paper, which made me angry. Because every time I’m taking a test or a quiz in Mrs. Medina’s class, the first few questions are nowhere related to what we’ve been studying or they’ve been designed in¬†a format that I find confusing. What the french toast?! I still finished the quiz pretty fast compared to others (wasn’t the first 3 to turn in the test, though). She then gave us a review to do to get ready for the Mid-Term tests coming up this Friday and apparently this Review is gonna be graded. Goshdangit. I hate graded reviews.

The French test was really easy. It was on the 24 hour and 12 hour clock timing and seeing if we could tell what was morning, afternoon, and¬†evening and¬†to first of all tell the time in French. It was¬†very easy, surprisingly. I was one of the first to finish it and could¬†of been the first person to get up from my seat but I bet the others are either brilliantly fast in writing or they don’t write as carefully as I do. I can¬†guarentee¬†I have an A on the test, if not a 100%.

IDT was really interesting and¬†rewarding for me because I got to¬†solve my Scratch problems and finally¬†perfect my Pong game. It looked great and when I¬†created a new Scratch file and¬†programmed the right code with the Pong instructions I named the file¬†“Pong Patch 1.0”. I feel¬†like a smart programmer that I got to create my own¬†visual game through a bunch of¬†code.¬†You probably don’t understand the feeling,¬†but once you get there you’ll understand. ūüėČ

I got to go on the bus back home this time since my Cross Country couch said that I couldn’t go to practice at all with my ankle-brace (still¬†have to explain my injury). It was fun being able to ride the bus and talk to my friends. Sarah was on the bus and so was Markel, as usual, and getting to talk to my friends was very relaxing.

When I got home, I had so much homework. It was unreal. But now I have to explain my injury. Two days ago, when I ran Cross Country and did the Hammer Time pace, I ran too hard on the 1000 meter workout. I had a bad pain on my ankle, which made me unable to run or walk on my cool-down. So instead I went limping the whole cool-down, trying not to complain too much about my pain. When we got back to the building and stretched, I picked up my stuff from the boys locker room and made my way home. Now this was worse for me, because going home and limping was not going to look right for other people passing by me and it would certainly take loger than usual to arrive home. I was 1/4 distance in to getting past Richland Park neighborhood and arriving to my neighborhood, when my Dad passed by with what was apparently my brother, Matthew. I thought they drove by and were gonna drive back and pick me up. So I went back to the start of Richland Park neighborhood and waited for 10 minutes. After that time, I assumed my Dad was not going to arrive and I walked back to where I was previously. I won’t lie, I cursed at my pain, because trying to walk normally back home was a pain. When I arrived home I was liping horribly and my Mom noticed. She took me to the doctor and he told me that I had sprained my ankle from running too hard. Wow. Never thought that would happen. It feels great and awesome to have a brace/cast at first but when you have to take it off to take a shower or go to bed or even wear it going to bed it feels painful and it’s a struggle. Though, on the bright side, I don’t have to go to Cross Country practice until I have it taken off and I’m in perfect condition, and Coach said that I probably might have to end my Cross Country season if I’m missing for 3 days. Awesome and also not awesome at the same time. I’ll ponder on this later.

Anyway! Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

High-School Is A Struggle


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. I’m right now at the Media Center in the high-school I’m going to, which is basically the library in short. I’ve come up with a method to do some posting for you guys from the Media Center where 20-30 minutes of time is provided for me. Hopefully you won’t have a problem with it if you enjoy my posts. ūüėČ No music/video for today, cause I’m at my high-school and apparently Youtube is restricted from the computers here as well as Wikipedia and Twitter, which is stupid, but oh well.

Today, first day back from school, after an awesome weekend was a bit foggy.¬†I haven’t been paying attention the stuff going on in my life lately. Everything’s¬†a blur. Nothing seems too important to me. I guess it’s something you get used to when you’re really busy in high-school and get¬†only a certain number of hours to sleep. I mean, I can remember the conversations I had with friends and with people I don’t know, and when I look back at those conversations I actually am surprised those people talked to me and that we talked about that certain thing. I don’t know. Even in classes. Teachers say some crucial information. I can’t seem to process any of it. It’s really weird. It feels like everything is blurred, unless I put my mind to memorize¬†that scene/memory. I know, it’s weird. Don’t judge.

P.E. was one of the high-lights of today. I played an actual game with the people who weren’t playing Soccer and practiced shots with me. Chris, a friend of mine in P.E. since the beginning of the year, played the game with me along with a few of my other friends. Andrew (not me, of course), also played and played on my team. I’m kind of negotiating whether I should talk to Andrew after the incident that happened with Sydney (my friend) at church. I don’t feel like explaining what happened now, still feel a bit hungry. Lunch is in about 15 minutes from now anyway . . .

I actually made 3 shots in the basketball game since it was just a 3v3 and Andrew really had no choice but to pass it to his friend that was playing on my team or me. So, it was a really good game. For once I’m getting better at playing basketball games with teams of people I don’t know. It’s especially¬†important for me since I want to apply for Basketball.

After P.E., was Honors Language Arts. We just did our Bellwork (when she gives us a sentence to work on for a week, and we have to correct it in different ways each day of the week [today was parts of speech]), then our SSR reading (when we’re given 10-15 minutes to read a book we picked specifically from the library) and now that I think about it, I’m gonna have to finish my SSR reading novel in about two days because I need to pay back the library for my overdue.

Honors Biology, was a blur. I just remembered that she showed us the test that we took on Friday (a big test over the¬†unit) and pointed out how we failed those questions and pointed out how stupid we were messing up those questions. It felt embarassing that I was one of the stupid people in the class. I’m hoping that my grade average was at least an A. I’m confident of it. But then again, lately everything I’ve been confident about has bit me in the butt (for nicer way to say).

Accelerated Math, I did not even pay attention, I tried to pay attention and comprehend what the teacher was saying, but nothing was connecting, and all I did the duration of the class period was tilt my head and lean it against my arm and try to make myself go to sleep and skip the whole hour of this boring and unproductive class period. I remember faintly we were going over different types of graph functions such as Odd and Even functions. I got that part, but the parts where polynomials and equations involving symmetry came in,¬†I started to get confused and panicked in my mind. I’m not usually this half-hearted about everything. It’s definitely not because of video-games. It’s got something to do with the food I’m eating, people I’m around, and especially the people I’m hanging around. That’s the only thing I can concur with.

French was actually a fun class. I got to crack a nice “Lilo and Stitch” joke. Only to have my friend Max try to one me up and use Stitch’s voice to get the attention of the class. Otherwise it was a fun class. We got a bit into the new unit of French we’re going to be working on. “Family”. After that, it was just waiting for the class to end for me.

Digital Technology made me feel smart since we were doing some sort of programming and commands with this program the teacher is making this class use called “Scratch” which can make a large amount of things. Today, we were designated to figure out how to construct the game “Pong” from “Scratch” which had a lot of programming and code involved. By the end of my project, I had so much more code than most of the people around me, it felt so awesome. I don’t know, I guess I just like to be better than everybody. It makes me feel at peace with myself.

Cross Country was awesomely tiring. We had to do 4 1000 meter runs, which means we had to run 1000 meters in distance 4 times. The first two times we had to run the 1000 meters we had to run 5K Race Pace, which is the pace we want to run for our next race which is gonna be in Mulberry and is apparently going to be a really “difficult” hill course. The third time we ran the 1000 meter we had to run tempo pace which is in between jogging and 5K Race Pace. 4th time we had to go Hammer speed, in which I like to call it “Hammer Time” *cue the music*. ūüôā I ran the Hammer 30 seconds faster than my fastest run on the 1000 meters, taken in mind the course was covered many hills. I ended up having a sore ankle that extremely hurt when I moved it for our cool-down. I didn’t want to walk though, because the couches warned us that if they catch us walking on the cool-downs then our Cross Country season is over. So I mustered through it. When we came back to the Cross Country locker rooms I ditched the place, immediately. Not even wanting to stretch.

It was a struggle having to walk home, since I had the bad ankle and looked like a retard walking awkwardly with my bad foot. Surprisingly, my Dad passed by me with my brother, Matthew in the front of the car with him. I was so grateful for them, because I thought they were gonna pick me up. Wrong. Turns out, when I wanted an unnecessary 15 minutes for them to drive back to me, I figured that they weren’t gonna pick me up and that my Dad had to do something more important. So I walked home, with the bad ankle and tried to whine too much about it. Though I won’t deny that I cursed many times at my ankle for giving me such a hard time.

When I arrived home, my Mom gave me a lecture about how I was late for home and how she was calling my couches to figure out where I was. I just told her the story of my Dad and how I was confused if he was going to pick me up or not. She calmed down after that, and then I went back outside and got Markel outside to play Basketball with me.

Overall the day was just really a struggle. I love high-school, no doubt about it. I just hate the education part of it. It just feels that no matter how hard I try, the grades don’t come to my standard. It really pisses me off. Otherwise, everything is a blur, and I feel everything is going too fast for me to comprehend.

Anyway! Enjoy your time wherever you are! BYE!

I Have Found an Excellent Opportunity


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new announcement post about my blog. Reason, in short, for not being able to post as frequently lately is because I’m in high-school and in high-school I have a lot of priorities and things I wanna do. For the most, I’m in Cross Country (which has been a splendid experience) and being in Cross Country there’s a lot of committment involved in doing the sport. I’ve just recently finished a 5K Race for Cross Country, which takes up about 4-5 hours of my day after school. I also have been involved in¬†prestigous clubs that will look good for my college portfolio. One of them I’m taking is Science Olympia, a really fun group that studies many different topics of scientific builds, chemistry, labs, etc. The class, itself (such as Accelerated Math, and Honors Language Arts, Biology) have been difficult to keep up with on grades since I have so little time left to study for the subjects. High-school’s a pain and struggle, but also a delight in summarization. If you’re homeschooled, you really aren’t aware what you’re missing if you’re not in a public high-school and this is coming from a person who’s been homeschooled for technically 12 and half years of my life.

To the point of this point, I have found an opportunity to able to post more for you guys. Right now, currently, I am typing on the Media Center computer at the high-school I’m going to. If you don’t know what the Media Center is, it’s basically the library except with lots of visual features and many, many computers that are available 24/7. So, I’ve decided to take my free-time before my 5th period (which we call here advisement [which is 30 minutes]) to post to you guys/girls or anyone who is reading. Plus, I feel a lot more satisfied with myself when I’m writing or typing down articles and gets some emotions of my chest. It’s weird I know. A 14 year old boy, like me, with a blog. If any of my high-school friends at the high-school I’m going to saw my blog, they’d laugh at me for sure, but writing is my talent! And I love it, even if I’m not the best at it.

So, without further ado, and without going so poetic with my writing, I am signing off and hopefully you’ve acknowledged what I’ve just typed down the majority of this time, or¬†otherwise this would all be in vain.

So, bye!

Enjoy your time wherever you are!

Really?!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. Jumping straight to the daily song/video of the day, we start with a video of a game I’ve been looking forward to playing for so long. It’s Battlefield 4. For those who are reading my blog and are not familiar with Battlefield 4, I assure you, you have not been living under a rock. It’s a video game, so you’ve probably not seen it. It’s a multiplayer trailer of Battlefield 4, if you want to see the real deal of the game look it up online. My purpose for showing you guys this trailer is because I hope that for people who are interested in First-Person Shooter games will start to broaden their tastes besides COD (Call of Duty) and for others who also have a skeptical way of looking at video games. If you’re none, well, just enjoy (as I usual say)!

So today (Sunday) was really interesting, On Friday–the day previous to Saturday–was so exciting I did not have much time to come onto the computer and post about it since I wanted to go to sleep. I went to a Football game and had a great time for a first football game. The next day I relaxed and got a nice haircut. This was not any kind of average haircut, it was a new haircut, a sort of Mohawk looking haircut. I actually slept at 6 o’clock in the evening and woke up at 6 o’clock in the morning (today). It was a really good sleep, still I feel like I need more sleep, but whatever. I’ve been listening to a lot of rap music. Specifically Kendrick Lamar and a bit of Eminem. The majority of the morning today I listened to some music and tried to memorize some lyrics from a few of Kendrick’s songs. I also tried to play some Minecraft, but unfortunately the computer was having a struggle, so I gave up that attempt.

This continued the duration of the morning with some times where I went outside and practiced making some shots on the basketball hoop. I’ve gotten into Basketball seriously recently. I feel so Black. Listening to rap music and hanging with black friends as my majority and playing Basketball. Honestly, I don’t care. It’s not like I’m annoyed being around white people, so whatever.

Once church time came around my Mom proposed we all go at the same time around 4 o’clock. Of course I did not want to comply, but I had to since she IS my Mom. So we went at 4 o’clock and I saw surprisingly Elizabeth at the church. I wasn’t nervous this time of approaching her and just being awkward when she was around. I was actually getting sick and tired of it, ¬†so I just straight up approached her and joked saying she had actually come. Sydney gave me a hug–which I didn’t care about at the moment–which is kind of weird, but oh well. I greeted Michael and Corbin (sorry, I probably butchered your name xD) too. It was a great time to immediately meet up with the group. Kendall also arrived, but then told me some really shocking news. If you guys don’t know, Kendall, was one of the girls I had been struggling whether I should pick her over another girl called Kaitlin in the church as well or Samantha at school. I had decided not to try with her since she was pretty and seemed not attracted to me and preferred “us” as just friends. So I left it that way until now. She went straight up to me, asking if we could walk. She told me she had actually liked me/crushed on me. At first the news didn’t process in my head, I was of course surprised, but not the surprise I have at this moment. She knew that I had decided to choose Kaitlin and said she didn’t want to get in the way and said she couldn’t date otherwise. Now I’m not so sure.

The choices are killing me. Three very pretty girls that have very brilliant personalities (which is why I like them in the first place). Kaitlin loves Doctor Who and is not at all bad-looking. She’s just my preference. Kendall is blonde. I dig blondes. Honestly. Samantha (at school) is so nice and great to talk to and of course is very appealing. Right now I’m being honest as can be. I’m wondering who I should choose. I have to make my decision by Sunday. I hate to just be talking about girls and relationship and stuff like that, but this is what today consists of. I’ll ponder the situation later. A new girl came to church today and also is new to Georgia. She came from North Carolina apparently and so far I am so in love with her. Not in the actual way of LOVE. More in the sense that I find her very funny and love hanging out with her. The best part is that Michael is with me in the majority of my relationships problems and crush problems. Kendall and Michael were trying to convince me to talk to Kaitlin just when she was leaving and confess my feelings. It was funny but I sincerely did not want to do it.

Eventually, my family came around and told me I had to leave. So we arrived home and I decided to stay outside and make some shots on the basketball hoop. I’ve been practicing a lot of tricks. Still rusty, but I’m getting there. Currently listening to Kendrick Lamar. xD All the events have led up to this moment.¬†

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Biology Test and Another Crush?


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you another post of my daily life. Last post, I did a Vine video presentation for you. I felt like that video was entertaining, so I have decided to give you guys another Vine video to present. I might present another one next post, but then that’ll be it with the Vine videos. So for today, enjoy your Vine video!

So to the day. Today wasn’t such a relaxing day as yesterday. Today was the day of the big Biology test. I really wanted to make an A on it, but I had to study a lot because we were going over all the topics we discussed so far in the year. Biomes. Ecology. Characteristics of Life. So on. Unfortunately, I lost my Lab Book. Which was my #1 source for studying. So I had to study on what I had that was NOT in the Lab Book, which was very few stuff since my Lab Book had everything we did in Biology.

I had my Mom drive me to school again early so I could tell Mrs. Cabral about this (she’s my Biology teacher). At first when I arrived the building, she was not in her class. The class was locked and pitch black inside through the tall rectangular window. After 15 minutes, she arrived and I approached her. Turns out I left my Lab Book in the class, so gladly I picked it up and went to P.E. (my first period [first class]). Today we did 4 laps around the Gymnasium Upper Level, which wasn’t so bad regarding I’m in Cross Country. I was in front of many most of the time and I also overlapped a few. Then we went downstairs after our 4 laps to do Lunge walks and then we could “join in” which meant do whatever we want in the Gymnasium like Basketball, Soccer, walking. I decided to do some Soccer. I made no goal unsuccessfully due to the lack of feeling I have now for Soccer. I’m gonna go for it again tomorrow if Basketball does not want to cooperate with me.

Once P.E. was over, I went to Language Arts. Nothing much happened except more homework and more terms we had to study on. We had to read 3 pieces of a book for homework. 1 for today. 1 for tomorrow in class. And 1 for tomorrow’s homework at home. So yeah, gotta love the homework!

Next class was Biology. I was pretty nervous. Not to the point like I always am when I’m waiting for Cross Country in Digital Technology and I get sick to my stomach. No, I just was nervous because the teacher announced she was going to put anybody who got A’s on the test on a black board for excellence. I really wanted that opportunity to shine. Call me selfish, I just really need my grades as high as possible. I took the Biology test and to be truthful it wasn’t so hard. I mean there were a few questions that tripped me up that I was worried about, but I felt like I retained most of the information. I just don’t want to jinx anything.

Math was hard today. We had to learn a new step. Solving equations with 3 variables and 3 equations. A lot of work just for one piece. It was really frustrating because if you messed up one sign or one step all the other steps would mess up too and you would have to start from the beginning. I had homework with 8 problems on the studying we did today. It was frustrating. Though, my friend Vanessa told me something. The blonde girl I had been joking with across the class had been staring at me or looking at me constantly when I wasn’t. Vanessa believed that this girl had a crush on me. I felt like it wasn’t true, but now it slowly made sense to me. She kept looking at me and giving me funny looks. I tried not to focus too much on it, so I ignored it.

French was awesome. Not for others, though. Mrs. Bier (the French teacher) got angry at a lot of people for slacking off and that’s what they’ve been doing. Slacking off the past week. Thinking it’s cool to slack off and get bad grades. Go back to middle-school slackers. This is high-school. Is what I would’ve said to them or what I should say to them. I was given one “Bravo” card for being an excellent student in class and my friend Casey got one too. But he didn’t want it, so he gave it to me. I got 2 bravo cards and was ahead of the class.

Digital Technology wasn’t fun at all. We worked on the project and I had some very interesting information revealed to me both from my partners on the side of my desk and from the salary and money my job made and required in order to be applied in. It was a real eye-opener.

Cross Country was nice despite all the other boring and uninteresting subjects we had to work on today. We had a Recovery run today which meant that we were doing 45-55 minutes of nonstop running from the school to this area 3 miles away and then to run back. It was relaxing after the 400 meter hill run we did yesterday. I got to run with Couch V most of the time and my new friend Amosasee. I don’t know how to spell his name, but if you pronounce it the way I spelled it it sounds exactly the same. I’ll have to get his name on a piece of paper to remember. Couch V is really nice. She’s my favorite couch out of the 3 other couches. She’s friendly and I feel safe around her. I don’t know why, I just do. She’s also really good at encouraging me whenever I improve on something, so of course that goes into key factor.

Once I arrived back home I played a little bit of Minecraft and Joanna came over and watched me play a little bit. Then I did my homework until 10 o’clock. Then I slept, which is why this was post the day after the day I’m actually posting about, but it’ll still say on the post date that it’s on the day I’m still talking about. All the events have led up to now.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!
