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!

I’m Now In Tennessee!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new update post. I don’t know if I will be able to post any daily posts while I’m here in Tennessee. I’ll try the best that I can! In the meantime, I will try my best to enjoy the area. So should you, wherever you are! Bye 🙂

REVIEW: *New* WordPress Dashboard Layout!


Hey guys! Andrew here. Bringing you guys my first official “REVIEW” post. I will be doing more of these in the future whether it will be related to books, games, food, and new stuff coming out. I will not be doing “REVIEW” posts on movies. Movies are specifically for the category of “Movie Perspectives”. Now let’s begin!

For any of the WordPress users out there that have been on their blogs posting recently, you all must know that WordPress has changed the whole layout of how we administer our blogs as the owner of our blogs. Some might think it’s a little bit too retro or futuristic looking, but to me, I really like it. I thought at first that I messed around with the layout colors or graphics, but turns out my sister’s blog is getting it to. And for the WordPress users who do not know what I am talking about, it is basically how our main dashboard looks like. Wow. I think I just actually cleared that out for everyone. 😛

The dashboard is different in so many ways. The whole options list we have that lists the “Store”, “Posts”, “Media”, “Links”, etc, is colored in black and the text is lightly brightened in white colored text. It kind of gives a sort of slick look to it. They’ve always reorganized the whole “Posts” category and how you can post itself. Did anyone realize that with the new Dashboard Layout that the “Publish” button had changed shape. In the previous Dashboard layout, it was slightly curved into an oval. Now it is a full rectangle. The text seems to be more cut off or blurry a little bit. I began to notice that. The accessibility to everything is great. It’s not really such a BIG change, but there has been a few minor changes and I really like it!

This has been quite a short post, at least in my opinion. I’m not that good at reviewing blog stuff. It’s my first time, but I decided to do it. YOLO, you know. No, I’m just kidding. I hate saying that. XD Anyway. If I have to give my finally “REVIEW” or verdict, it would be I would give the new Dashboard Layout a 4.5 star rating out of 5. If only the could just minimize how many options there would be on the side so I wouldn’t be so full of options and not feel so clustered in the dashboard space. Especially for new users who are creating WordPress blogs. That is all!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Good Grade Start


Hey guys, Andrew here! Bringing you a new post. Not feeling in the exact particular mood for this, but I feel like I must post to you guys even though I might not feel the single nerve to do so. So, let’s skip to the part where I walk to the bus. Funny things start from there.

So just when I saw the bus coming, in the morning, after I got all my clothes together, my sister leaves, all prepared and walks casually to the bus. I’m about to do the same thing when suddenly my mom notices that I am sagging a little bit (which was by accident, I am NOT a sagger [if that’s even a word]) and starts yelling at me for not picking up a belt. I told her several times I did not need a belt at this time, especially when the bus had just entered the neighborhood. She insisted though and told me not to move. Grunting, displeased, I waited reluctantly. It took about a full minute for my mom to walk upstairs and pick up my belt which I could do in the matter of 5 seconds. Once she gave it to me, I bolted outside. No worries. But then my mom yelled out from the house:

“PUT ON THE BELT NOW!” 

So holding my backpack rather awkwardly and then trying to put on a belt was quite interesting for me. I was able to manage eventually, but I had to lower my backpack. After I had put on the belt like my mom told me to, I ran to our usual bus-stop and greeted Joanna, her friend (don’t remember her name), and Erick. It was awkward and I did not feel like talking, so we didn’t really talk. Once the bus came we all entered and we drove to school. Funny thing was that Bailey, Jayduh, and Lauren in the back of the bus were pretty quiet during the whole drive. They’re usually the loud ones in the back making trouble of all sorts.

Once we got to the school I quickly entered my classroom, knowing I was late and did not have time. I did take a few seconds to pick up a simple orange juice for breakfast. Though I seriously need to get a bagel or something else. Homeroom class started pretty quick in progression. Once homeroom was over, we transitioned from Homeroom to Georgia Studies and continued our notes on learning the “NEW SOUTH”. I got to announce some ideas in the notes when Mr. Iverson (the Georgia Studies teacher) asked for any helpful answer or tips in the questions that were given. It was a pretty simple class all in all. Though there were some funny moments.

Next class, Language Arts with Mrs. Harris, was pretty simple too. We continued reading after we got 10 minutes to work on our Review that we were assigned last week on Friday. Luckily, though, I finished mines on the day and turned it in so I wouldn’t have to procrastinate the whole weekend until the last day. I hate doing that… Then we read “The Giver” and trust me, it is a good book. Progressively the plot thickens. Lol. After Language Arts, I moved to Math class in which we took a lot more notes than homework. I finished my homework, though, immediately on task on the day so I wouldn’t have to do anything at home.  During lunch, though, I decided to sit next to my friend Andrew and Manuel. We had fun and as a result one of their friends (who I can’t remember his name) who sat next to me, had 2 of his chocolate milks drop on the table. We eventually had to have a few teachers come and help us clean it up. Though it was hilarious. I walked with Vanessa as usual back to the Math class. Though she asked me a favor this time. She gave me a note that her boyfriend, Zach (we were good friends as well), wrote her or it seems that he did that crept the living sh*t out of Vanessa. It said “I want to r*pe you.” She asked me to hide her behind me (which was easy because she was small) as we passed by Zach through lunch, which was easy until after I gave my hug to Jessica. Her boyfriend immediately realized what had just happened by the time we were almost at the doors. He called for her to come, but she didn’t and it was awkward. I felt like I was tearing a relationship. 😦

Then Science class came and it was disruptive as usual and there were the same usual, annoying people. Eventually it got SO annoying that I moved from my seat to the side of the classroom where I could hear my teacher, Mr. Dyches. I got a good grade as we read throughout the hand-out sheet we worked on, but it did also open my eyes to answers I thought would be normally right to actual wrong answers. Well I guess we can live by the quote: “You learn something new, everyday.” Anyway, once Science class ended and I moved to homeroom to wait for our homeroom teacher Mrs. Flowers to dismiss us, I decided to put my Math book away, since I had no need for it. Surprisingly, my backpack was 5X lighter without the Math book and I freely roamed wherever I went. The situation with Zach and Vanessa was solved because Zach explained that one of his friends wrote on it, which solved the situation easily.

I then moved to P.E. and we started practicing on Soccer. YES. My sport. Tomorrow I’m assuming we’re doing a Soccer game. I’m pumped! Afterwards I went to Health class. The most near difficult and straining class I had to take in the school besides Science. We watched a little movie during the class after we read some information on drugs. For the unit in Health we are learning we are learning about drugs and basically defects and information about them. Including diseases from FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) and Cirrholis, etc. Once Health was over and we were dismissed to our buses I left to my bus while talking to my friend Mackenzie. Afterwards I finally arrived on my bus and had a balling time as usual near the end. Then I arrived home and also brought a progress report my Health teacher gave me. I had a 94%, which is good, but quite disappointing for a subject like Health. I mean it’s not really that hard, but it is! It’s hard to explain! But I gave it to my parents and they signed it. The day went on as normal as it could be until now where I am writing to you.

There were a lot of events involved in today, but I’m trying to go very broadly over my days so I won’t have to write so much, because I know that you guys don’t enjoy it when I write too much. Or do you? I’m going to have to write about a poll decision. Anyway, enjoy your time wherever you are, bye! 🙂

GOAL APPROACHING!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you an update of what’s to come. Hopefully more posting. For the new years resolution. 😉 Reason why I’m not able to post as much now is because of homework/school-work and less amount of time. Plus my laptop is broken… 😦 So yeah, anyway to the point of this post.

I am about to reach 100k views or in other words 100,000 views on my blog. Took me 3 years to get to this goal, but it’s pretty friggin awesome if I must say so myself. How about this for a goal: Try to hit 150,000 views or 200,000 views before the end of the year. Which means I’ll have to work my butt off on this blog. So all you could do right now, if you are a follower of this blog, is to share my blog with friends. I don’t curse very much unless you count “crap” as a cuss word, but even then it’s mentioned very few of the times. Share my blog on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, etc. Anywhere! This’ll be my news year resolution once we hit 100k views, then we shall start! 🙂 

Let’s do this!

Best Tuesday I’ve Ever Experienced


Hey guys, Andrew here, bringing you a post about a day that was immediately placed in one of the best days ever! Normally, on a Tuesday, nothing would happen. It usually became the relaxing day after the worst day ever: Monday. Which I did not post about cause I did not feel like writing 1,000 words about a boring day. So anyway, let’s get talking about the day.

I woke up in the morning, feeling quite relaxed. Though, as I woke up, I did not feel like getting out of my bed. I had that feeling some people get when they wakeup and feel that the  blankets are set just right and are warm/cold enough and comfortable enough to convince you not to get out of bed. And convince me the bed did. I was acting as if today were a Summer day instead of school day, so I had no intention of getting up at any time. Once I went back to sleep, had a crazy dream that I cannot remember at the time, and woke up, I set myself ready for the day. I went downstairs and ate breakfast whilst greeting my mother with a smile and a “good morning”. I ate my animal cracker breakfast, then put all the cereal equipment back where they belong, and then decided to work on my school. I was not worried that I had missed a class while I went back to sleep in my bedroom.. well, maybe a little bit, but not too much. As I logged onto my school profile, there were, surprisingly, no classes today. What? Was this going to be like this for the rest of the days? I was feeling quite bad inside because what if there were no classes up until I left k12? I wouldn’t have time to say goodbye to any of my school friends! 😦

But having no classes at the moment was fine for me, just as long as it was only today. I took the advantage of having no classes so I could work on my main OLS subjects. I went straight for Composition, since it had no assessment at the end of the lesson, and skipped right through it, acting as if it was completed. Ah, I’m such a bad person.. Anyways.. after I finished or skipped through the Composition I went to Science. I think it was Earth Science or Life Science, I don’t remember, but it was Science, I know that! I took my time with the lesson, seeing as it was STILL only about 9:30 AM in the morning. I was learning about the formula for force when the factors mass and acceleration due to time were available, and then the lesson tried to twist me and test how logical I was going to be by asking what would happen if the factors force and acceleration due to time were shown, but you would have to find mass. Of course, if you all don’t know, I’m not a very logical person most of the time. Apparently, for this lesson, my brain *clicked* and used its logic. I ended up finishing the assessment test for the Science with a perfect grade of a 100%. After that I started to contemplate to myself.

“I think I want to be a scientist.” I thought to myself.

I never thought I would say it to myself, but I now said it, and am STILL surprised by the fact that I said those words. I don’t know why, but I guess the ease of Science this year has convinced me to grow a farther liking for it. Especially Math! I’m learning it a lot faster and a lot smarter as you’ll see throughout the day. But anyway, let’s continue with the day. You already got the point of the reasoning behind my wanting to be a scientist. After Science, I did Georgia Studies (it’s like history except specifically on Georgia), but unfortunately before I did Georgia Studies my brain decided to go bad and wanted to watch a few Youtube videos. I tried telling myself that only a few videos was acceptable, seeing as not much time was spent in the process (it was 10:20 AM in the morning). I watched a few ERBs (Epic Rap Battles) and got myself into a musical mood. Eventually I started to beat-box to myself again. Honestly, as bad as I sounded at the beginning, I thought I was getting better slowly. I mean, not all people are naturally good at the beginning. You gotta starts somewhere. I still need to be able to hum and make drum noises without making a slight split second pause between the hums and drum sounds. As I finished watching Youtube, making my promise to myself to only watch a few videos, I returned to Georgia Studies. We were learning mainly about the cult that formed after the Reconstruction act in Georgia when blacks were elected into the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. I think you guys know these people: the Ku Klux Klan otherwise known as the KKK.

What surprised me even more was the fact that the KKK actually started in Tennessee and then stayed in Georgia to threaten blacks. Even though I did not fancy the study of Georgia (I liked to study other states, countries, and continents), I did learn that a lot of things during the Civil War all the way to the Reconstruction act were helped and supported a lot by Georgia and its bordering states. Something new I learned. Once I finished reading about two LONG pages about the KKK and how they tried to prevent the blacks from voting for republicans, I went straight to the assessment. Unfortunately, I failed the test. Reason being was because the first two questions were about specifically WHO was part of the House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate when there were SO many complicated names mentioned, I did not know what to pick. So I picked randomly. The other questions were correctly answered, except for the first two questions, which pissed me off a little bit. But no matter, I was still to have a positive Decemburrr feeling/mood.

After Georgia Studies I focused on my Math, since that was the last subject for the day (I love it when there are only 4 subjects in one day). It was a hard lesson, lemme tell you, but then my logic started kicking in again and I followed EXACTLY by the rules of how I was supposed to do the math formula in this lesson. They asked questions like:

“Jimmy works as a barber for $4.31 per hour during the afternoon shift, while in the evening shift he worked $7.12 per hour as a bar tender. One day Jimmy worked 53 hours in one week and earned a total of $318.35 in that week. How much did hours for each shift during that week did he work for?”

This is how I worked it out, or how they taught me to work it out, step by step:

H x $4.31 + (53 – h) x $7.12 = $318.35

$4.31h + $7.12(53 – h) = $318.35

$4.31h + $377.36 – $7.12h = $318.35

-$2.81h + $377.36 = $318.35

-$2.81h + $377.36 – $377.36 = $318.35 – $377.36

-$2.81h = -$59.01

-$2.81h/-$2.81h = -$59.01/-$2.81h

H = 21

So that means that Jimmy worked 21 hours as a barber and then 32 hours as a bartender!

Long equation, right? But it surely gets the answers correct. Unfortunately, another fate was destined for me. I failed the test because the last two questions out of 5 questions were asking which job spent this many hours. Now that I already knew the hours, I needed to place them at the right job. I didn’t, so that’s why I failed. I did the test again and passed. I guess I didn’t COMPLETELY know the lesson, but I did know 95% of it. xD After that, Math was done and so was school, so I had decided to go outside in the decent climate it was in and do some parkour and climbing. I did so by practicing climbing over the backyard fence and into the front yard porch which stood about 10 feet above the ground, so if I fell down with the condition my ankle and knee had been for the past two weeks, I probably would have fractured my leg. Fortunately, though, I was careful of where I clung my fingers onto so that if I used my muscles to support me up and therefore pushing my weight downwards it wouldn’t fall on me. It was a good exercise for my muscles and I got to breath a lot of Nature’s air. 🙂

Once I went back into the backyard through the fence back down the front yard porch, my father came outside and start questioning me about me climbing around the fences. I said it’s a practice for the skin on my hands to toughen up. Then he started acting sensitive and said “Why do you want to toughen your hands? You’re gonna get blisters!” Blah blah. I returned the questions with a true answer. I loved climbing outside and toughening my finger skin was gonna be a good exercise and advancement to my climbing skills. He stormed back inside the house and out my mother came. She gave me a lecture about how I needed to go brush my teeth, wash my face, put some zit ointment allover my face (because I forgot to), and then as I walked away into the house she questioned me again with:

“What did I say, Andrew?”

“Brush my teeth, wash my face, and then put zit ointment on.” I said rather lazily.

“Nope.” she said.

I widened my eyes, thinking she was messing with me. “I just said everything you told me to do.”

“No you got everything right EXCEPT for the fact that you need to check with me once you had the zit ointment done.”

I was pissed off and I wanted to say that she did not say that, because clearly I could remember it and hear what she was saying. But saying she never said that would get my mother pissed off as well, so I just said yes m’a’m and went to do the activities as told. I brushed my teeth, washed my face, and put the zit ointment on. After that, it was sort of funny because I was Skyping my friends during the day and about all of them wanted to video call me and I was like:

“Heck no! I’ve got all of this on my face.” xD

Once 10 minutes had passed and I felt that zit ointment was starting to dry, I went downstairs to my mother, checked with her, and then washed my face. Surprisingly enough, my face was not clear, but it was SO soft. I could not remember any other time I could feel the difference of how soft my face was. Though there were red spots on my cheeks from the hot water washing the ointment off, I still was happy with my soft cheeks and so was my mother. We both were happy, until I had informed specifically my father that I was done with school and my father and mother chipped in and told me the worst news to hear from a k12 parent. I had a Scantron to do today and then afterwards I had to do school with Anabelle. Cause apparently my mother is TOO busy watching the TV that she makes me do some school with Anabelle. I can’t complain though: she makes us GOOD food, I actually learn a lot of things from teaching Anabelle, and plus I always liked to teach Anabelle, as long as she was getting the lesson. The moment she would NOT get the lesson and tried to joke around and not pay attention I would get pissed off at her.

So I did my Scantron and on the bright side: while I was half-ass doing it, I still felt like I was gonna make a good grade and that it was pretty quick. If you are wondering what Scantron I did, it was Math. And if you are wondering  what a Scantron is you can ask me in the comments cause I don’t feel like explaining it in the post. As the day proceeded it got better. I listened to some filthy dubstep on Pandora, then did school with Anabelle, and then watched a nice, funny (actually hilarious I should say), heart-warming Christmas movie called, I think, Christmas Vacation. It was a good movie. What made it better was the fact that it made my father laugh and it put a smile on our faces. I think that my mother and I were the ones who laughed the most, though. xD Then afterwards, the day ended swell and I went to bed! So wherever you are in the world, just remember to stay positive for this month. Try to stay positive and be happy this month. For me! I bet it’ll work and make you happy! Anyway, thanks for reading! Bye!

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!
