I Stand Up For Myself


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life, only I’ll try to summarize it in the best way I can, yet also getting the details of the day I want posted. Here’s the video/song of the day! It’s Sail by AWOLNATION. Really good song. I love the sort of dubstep and electronic buzzes in the song. Plus it sounds more nowadays, so yeah! Enjoy!

So yeah, from the time I left the house. I went to the house, greeted Erick, Ascarett, and Sarah at the bus stop. Unfortunately Patricia was not able to come over because she was sick with a fever because of Matthew’s previous sickness. I guess you can connect one to another from there. Anyway, I greeted the three of them. Now, when we talked we weren’t as silent, especially after yesterday. We had such a wonderfully awesome day yesterday. I did, sort of, post about briefly, but I did not describe it to its greatest. It was a good time. If you don’t know about it, read the previous post here. For right now I don’t want to fully describe everything that happened that day, I’ll just continue, assuming that you know what I am talking about. So I talked to Erick and asked him where he was because the last time I saw him was around 7 o’clock PM at Sarah’s house when he said he was going to go to the convenient store and buy us some snacks. It was 8 o’clock PM when I left and I still did not see him. Thankfully, I saw him here at the bus stop and questioned him about it. He said he would explain it on the bus, which he did. I arrived on the bus and now the bus for me, Sarah, Brian, Marquel, Patricia, Ascarett, and Erick was never the same. Others were doing their own thing while we were giggling and laughing about what happened yesterday. Bailey, from the back of the bus, sneered at us, in jealousy of how much fun we were having. Take that!

Much more fun was on the bus, except when there were no more fights on the bus for fear that Mr. Paul was going to write us up, which was stupid. I missed the fights dearly. They made me laugh crazily hard that tears came out of my eyeballs. R.I.P fights on the bus. 😦

School was exceptionally annoying. Mrs. Flowers made Brian and I throw away our breakfast when we just got in so we barely got to eat anything for breakfast. Ridiculous. In Georgia Studies we had to finish our Governor foldable. I finished first, of course, and turned it in. Mrs. Flowers made a big deal about it and announced how someone already turned in their foldable. I was kind of annoyed by it, yet flattered. Later she announced we were having a quiz on the information on the foldable, which was stupid because we had just begun the topic on Tuesday and she wants us to take a quiz on Friday. Ridiculous.

Language Arts was even more annoying. Mrs. Harris, in general, was getting increasingly annoying to me everyday. Her pet, my best friend Savannah, always got the glory from her and they always giggled together and whenever she looked at my work she looked at it with an “okay” or giving some advice. Surprisingly, today, Savannah approached me with an wrathful attitude. Mrs. Harris started near of edge yelling at Brianna in my class because Brianna asked if she could go to the bathroom to get her stuff that she forgot and then Mrs. Harris said you couldn’t because she was SO lenient to rules and couldn’t bend it once for her students. Brianna just stood there and Mrs. Harris got pissed off and started mocking her. Only the fans of Mrs. Harris laughed. I, instead, just stared and gave a cross face. Savannah, on my side, started to laugh at the joke and was quite confused as to why I wasn’t. I told her that I was siding with Brianna. She was crept out by the decision.

“Why?” she asked.

“Because Mrs. Harris is annoying.” I answered.

“No she’s not.” she replied coolly.

Of course, you’re her teacher’s pet. Then Savannah got angry at me for including her name in my own controversy book where it said that she said a cuss word and it was a long time ago. Now she suddenly had a problem with it and threatened to take it out herself if I wouldn’t. She stormed out of the classroom when class was eventually done. Where was this attitude coming from? Savannah is now coming down from my best friend list. Lol.

Math was a little more interesting, though I was really hungry. Thankfully, Andrew was here today and Samantha at the same time. I had both of them sit on my sides and we socialized until Lunch when we took notes. Unfortunately, when we came back from an uneventful Lunch, we had to do another worksheet. Goshdangit.

Science was kind of dreadful. I wasn’t learning as easily on the lesson because it was just so new and I was not getting it in my head, especially with all the noise going around. I could NOT take it seriously. On top of it, we have a quiz tomorrow on it. Brilliant. Pray that I do good on it.

P.E. was sort of interesting and boring at the same time. We had to stay downstairs while the other P.E. class got to go to the Fitness Lab because people were misbehaving and refused to admit their behaviors. We went over the information of the muscles and other formulas that were so vague to my mind while Shian was answering all the questions and so was Grayson. Teachers pets. We played Basketball, afterwards, and my team won. Yay!

Drama was dreadfully boring as well. We just spoke a play as I frustratingly stared at my unfinished worksheet for my Drama class. Ugh. I did not get to finish it until Mark on my side got his worksheet back and he allowed me to copy off of his. After we spoke the play, we watched a movie-version of the play we were watching. Nothing went through my mind during the play. I don’t even remember much. Though, two amazing things happened. Patrick, who was in my Drama class, started singing “I Knew You Were Trouble” in the class, like he always did, just to get attention. I got so annoyed that I told him to shut-up and I said it loudly. Silence rolled across the room and Shane, Patrick’s friend, smiled and goggled at what happened. He asked Patrick if he heard me, Patrick said yes and turned away. Shane then said that Patrick was afraid of me. Heck yeah he was. Finally I was taken seriously.

Brody, on the other hand, took my seat when I went to go for a bathroom break and I told him to get off. He of course said no and I got behind him and asked him seriously. I put my hands on his shoulder reaching for a hold on his neck. He grabbed my hand but I smacked it with surprising force and scared him. He was about to cry being traumatized. He even told me he could take my chair. I felt good afterwards. I felt no pity for him because he was pushing me around for no reason and I was sick of it. I finally stood up for myself. He did not touch me nor did he mess with me throughout the class and probably for the future classes. Finally when classes were done and I waited for bus call, I left the classroom in a rush to get to my bus first. I was determined to get there first. Though, I saw Brian on the other side of the bus lane reaching to my bus. I immediately raced for the bus and made it in to the bus with my victory dance. It probably is not that special for you, but it is for me! 😀

The bus was fun. Reason why is that Xavion (the one who started the big fight yesterday) and his sister was on the bus. A whole new fight started between Jayda with her wussy friend Bailey on her side against Xavion’s sister. It got so real that it almost became a cat fight. It was awesome! Gosh, I love the bus . . .

I finally came home and then relaxed. Though the stress on my mind about the quiz was stressing me. I was destined to make a 90% or above at least. Brian, then, asked for me to come to his house through my brother. I did. We planned to study, but we really slacked off on websites and eventually began watching Silent Hill. But if it weren’t for Brian, I probably would not know a lot of information on the governors then now. So yeah, thanks! Everything has led up to this point in time.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Homework is Stressful


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. I guess this intro sentence is going to be my motto, sort of, in my posts. Initially, my main motto for this blog is “A Freedom of Speech Blog”. So, there you go. Video/song of the day now down below! This is actually just a video of Minecraft gameplay. If video games is not your cup of tea, I still suggest you watch this episode. It may include a few cuss words, but I try to ignore them and try not to learn from it. This video is actually the 1st episode of the popular series created by the Youtube name, TheSyndicateProject, called The Minecraft Project. At this point of time, The Minecraft Project is about to reach episode #300, so this is really ancient. Way before Minecraft had installed food bars, experience, etc. Maybe recorded around later 2010 to the near middle of 2011. Not sure, but anyway, enjoy!

Now to my day. This post is going to be really short, as in less than 1000 words included in this post. Reason why is because I’m not feeling too well and that will be explained as we read into the post. So, let me just skip to the point in time where I went to eat breakfast and entered homeroom. I picked up breakfast, a simple orange juice and fruity tooties. Honestly, in reluctance, I took the fruity tooties because I was forced to take an entre. Now I wish I would have whole-heartily eaten in. Instead, in homeroom, I threw it away and drank my orange juice. Turns out we were supposed to be working on the full packet we received yesterday, but I completely forgot about it and did not work on it at all, so I did what I could. The packet was due Friday. Oh brother. Georgia Studies class was not so entertaining. Just mostly working on the packet and some of my vocabulary notes on the notepad.

We were in the “C” lab for Language Arts today. I had to write down my mini essay summary of the song “Fix You” that I had selected for the Music Poetry Project. It took me less than 10 minutes to write the whole 3 long paragraphs, with a little bit of improvisation. Most of the time, I payed attention to the paper and just clicked on the keyboard because I was so customary to typing on the keyboard, I could do it really fast and without looking. Manuel, eventually, during the near end of class, saw me do it and was so astonished that he asked a girl sitting right next to me in the row of seats to look at me. This was my time to show my skills in computer typing. I typed as fast as I could a random sentence without looking. Peter, as well, spied over to see what the commotion was. Eventually a lot more people came in. Even Brianna, who dared me to write down the McDonalds motto down on the computer without looking and fast. When I wrote in the BA-DA-BA-BA-BA without looking she nearly jumped out of her seat in astonishment, being surprised that I used the dashes so easily. Savannah and Aleia eventually came into witness and so did a bunch of people. I was the main attention and was really happy of it, though it had to come to an end eventually. I did really enjoy the sensation, though.

Math was pretty easy for the day, despite the fact that I continued to mess up on this one step in the substitution where I can combine like terms in the equations which in some cases I had to subtract or add the like terms. I went to the Math teacher and she looked at me funny, as if I were supposed to get this and why was I wasting her time. She explained it to me very briefly, expecting me to now get it. I sort of did, but I did not want to take much more of her time and attract the whole classroom’s attention. Lunch wasn’t as entertaining, besides that I decided to sit next to Andrew this time and his friend, who I can’t remember his name, and made fun of his friend buying a long Popsicle with a purple tip on top. It was fun altogether, but not as eventful. Math ended casually with us leaving.

Science was boring as well. I don’t know why. We just watched a 20 minute video and had Mr. Dyches show us a cool theory of Isaac Newton being demonstrated, involving Isaac Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion. It was pretty cool, especially with Brian sitting next to me, we had fun talking. I remembered a lot of the Penguinz0 jokes that we watched and told him. He still continued to laugh a lot.

Afterwards, we went to homeroom and then transitioned to P.E., which was a pretty boring time. We played Star Warz. It wasn’t as fun having me throw the balls and tag people out because I did not really have a strong throwing arm, but when I was placed Jedi Knight in Star Warz, it was epic beast mode time. I saved a lot of people and did not get pegged with the ball at all. Afterwards when I transitioned to Health class, I felt my ankles burn, like fire. Literally. It was weird. We took a Health Final Exam, summarizing nearly everything we learned since school started in January. I got a 90% grade near the end, which was happy. As long as it was a 90% grade or above I was good. I felt good afterward as I went to my bus after school ended. The bus was a little bit funny, but not as entertaining with Adrian and his friend continuing to call me gay randomly for no reason. When I got home afterwards, I was filled with homework and I procrastinated throughout the day by watching Lord of the Rings with my Mom. Ugh. Now I have to do it. Gosh. Anyway, everything has led up to here. I have passed the 1000 word mark, so I stop here.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

A Positive Start to the Week!


Hey guys. Andrew here! Bringing you a post like I’d promise I do. But before I begin about my day, I have to give a quick shout-out to Paige! Apparently she read one of my posts and is now a bit angry at me and has asked me not to mention her. The only logical thing to do at this point is shout her out and give her more attention. Your welcome! All will be explained later in the post. But anyway, here’s a song I’ve been recently listening to:

Enjoy and let’s start the post! (I have music playing the background right now)

Okay, so the day started out as it usually has. I wake up and get dressed. Only that I woke up with a churning feeling in my stomach. Reason why: I was to be at a conference today, but I did not know what time to be there and WHERE to be in the first place. I had been meditating on the idea for awhile, which resulted in a lot of painful, unnecessary stress. Now, though, I can’t avoid it. I’ll have to face it. I told my Mom and Dad about it. Later on the in the morning, once Matthew and Anabelle had already left to their buses, my Dad turned out to have written a parent note on paper for me to give my homeroom teacher directly. I decided to go with the flow with it and try not to over-stress about it. Once I had my clothes on, I sat in the living room with another idea to stress about: I was nervous about going to school. Last week was horrid. Everybody seemed to be against me. Just a few of my friends seemed normal to me. Otherwise it was horrible. A boy named Connor, Brian’s friend, was making fun of me, and sort of bullying me. God, now I hope Paige does not read this because she’ll spill my feelings. 😛

So yeah. I hoped for a good day today, but I still felt nervous. Just before the bus had entered in our neighborhood, I told  my Mom about how I was feeling. She reassured me with the same statement I had previously stated the first time I went to school. I promised I was going to so called “be normal and do my best”, which was true. Still unconvinced, I asked my Mom to pray for me. Then I left to the bus. As I was waiting for the bus, I met up with Erick, my sister, and another girl. Now at this point I was thinking “I don’t want to go to school!”. Unfortunately that was unavoidable and inevitable that I was to enter the bus, unless I wanted to make a big fool of myself and just run home crying like the sissy I was. No. I’ll just go. So I went on the bus. Thankfully, nobody was sitting in my seat. I sat in my seat, thankful. I decided to talk with Marquel (I think that’s how you spell it) next to me and eventually, during the conversation, I asked him to pray for me, as well, for my day. Then, once we were driving into the bus lot near the 8th grader entrance, Jayduh called me randomly and asked how I was doing out loud, which of course got most of the attention in the bus. I answered with “I’m good.” Though I felt too nerdy saying that. I wanted to add like “I’m pretty sh*t” or .. something else! But oh well, that let them to leave me alone and think about what just happened.

Then I entered the school, after the buses stopped, and went to homeroom. Once I entered the “C” wing, I went to go get myself some breakfast and decided to get more than just orange juice. I picked up a pack of apples and then was forced to get an entre. So I picked up a sausage biscuit. Then as I went to homeroom I was stopped by Paige. This now leads to what I was talking about in the beginning. So as I went to homeroom, Paige walked up to me, smiling as usual and a little goofy (sorry, that’s just how you look xD), and told me about how I wrote a post about how I thought she wanted me to ask her out or be her boyfriend. She told me, while laughing still, that that wasn’t the case. At first, I was surprised. I literally asked “how .. what?” Her friend was next to her and said they both had read my blog. Then I entered homeroom once I got the message. After I put down my lunch on the table and got my textbook, I actually thought about it. A few of my friends actually read my blog. I mean that’s how Jessica broke up with me. Haven’t actually explained that I went out with Jessica because there are people who read my posts that will contact my Mom once heard of. But yeah, she broke up with me because she read my blog and found out about my feelings towards her and I guess really figured who I was as a person. I felt weak and quite confused. I kind of feel like my blog is a private place for people, outside of my life, to enjoy and read. Not my friends. But then again a blog is a blog. It’s public for a purpose. I talked about this with my neighboring chair friend, Hayden. He took it in with a nod and then continued his studying and contemplating. I ate my food and decided to study to on work.

Once homeroom was over we were quickly notified that we were having Early Release. Basically leaving school pretty early. The schedule was put on the board. Then we transitioned to Georgia Studies, in which we had to do a review for “New South”. A lot of things I was quite clueless about, to say the least, but I knew about more than a half of it. So I am quite OKAY with it if I had to say. Once that was done we transitioned to our next period, Language Arts. At least for me. We did a little project classwork with a couple of the terms we were going to be needing such as: “similes and metaphors, etc”. Once the rough draft was done, we went to lunch. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a bad lunch, but it wasn’t. I enjoyed sitting next to Chris and Rob and a bunch of other people. Unfortunately, though, I sat directly in front of Brianna. Gosh why do we have to be so close together. -.- Anyway, I threw an aluminum foil crumpled up into a ball, when he threw it across my table, into his face. Which stirred a loud amount of laughs across the table, especially and surprisingly from Brianna. I also talked with Chris and we loads of fun. What was also surprising was Mike, a person who usually acted weird around me and did not like me, as it seemed, was listening intently on my conversations and was nice. I, altogether, had a great time. Once we came back from lunch, we finished up our rough drafts of the classwork project and added a little bit of design and color. Then we went back to our homeroom class to sign us out. Surprisingly we were sent out pretty quick. I almost had actually mistaken me going to 2nd connections when I was supposed to be going to 1st connection for today and then 2nd connection tomorrow. Almost learned that the hard way. Lol.

P.E. went pretty awesome. I don’t want to brag or anything, but it was awesome. We had a test of the Pacer. A sort of cardio exercise. It involved a group of people running from one wall on the other side of the gym to the other wall on the other side of the gym before a beep sounded. If the beep sounded and you hadn’t touched the wall in time you were out. Though it was also extremely hard because I have asthma (just learned I did about two weeks ago o.o) and plus you take about 2 second breaks and then run again which really requires patience and stability. Two things I don’t have. Though, this time, I wanted to do good and impress. Last time on the Pacer I got a 37 lap run. Our class teacher, Mrs. Turner, notified that we had to do 5 more in order to make a 100% grade for the test. So I was determined, yet anxious. I did not want to fail. Luckily, when we started I paced myself (Ey, get it! PACEr and PACE. No? Forget you! xD) and did the customary breathing my Mom had taught me to do when I was running. It helped a lot, but also crept a lot of people out, making them ask why I was breathing like this. In return I said I had asthma. That shut them up for awhile. What surprised me, though, was that I made the max: 40. We had to stop at 40. But what about the 100%? I thought. Oh well, I made it to the max, I’m happy. I came to the wall where everybody, who failed to go farther or who were waiting, sat. Then we went to the rooms to dress out after we put in our score for the test. Then we left the room and I sat in my seats waiting for the bus call. Then we left to our buses afterwards. The bus was then awesome. I had to sit, unfortunately and fortunately, with Eladia. The unfortunate part was that Brian –another one, who was in sixth grade– sat in my seat and I had to move and almost bring attention to myself. The fortunate part was that I enjoyed sitting down and talking with Eladia. Especially with the thought in my mind that she had a crush on me. 😛

Then a whole war between Matt — a 7th grader who sat in the seats in front Eladia and I — and Jayduh, along with all the girls in the back backing her up. It was funny and fun. They had done it back in the morning, though it wasn’t as brutally funny and plus I was talking with Marquel the whole time. Then when most of the people had left, it was just the group of us again. I decided not to move from my seat, this time, and let them do their thing, and speak from all the way where I was. It didn’t bring so much attention to Adrian as he would usually call me gay and I would respond back with a coolly attitude and then we would make fun of each other. Sometimes we would tussle a little bit. xD

We did this for about the whole time until we went back to our neighborhoods and I walked with Sarah on the way. We usually talked on our way and I liked talking with her. I complained to her about Connor’s problem of bullying, sort of, because Connor sincerely looked up to Sarah and I just felt like telling her. She told me she would handle it. Then after that sentence was taken in, I felt like she was my Mom. Haha. I don’t even know. Lol. Then we went into our houses. I gave all the good news to my parents then, had my dinner, and then went to Brian’s house. Another Brian this time. One who is in my grade but is not the short Hobbit one. I went to do the project with him and his mother helped us out a little bit as well. We did the project (an egg dropped without cracking) with Styrofoam and a plastic cup enclosed around. First time we tried it did NOT crack. Success. Brian even threw it across the field and it STILL did not crack. We were successful. Then, just before we were about to involve some engineering into the project, Brian reminded me that we were not allowed to have Colloids involved in our project, as previously mentioned by our Science teacher, Mr. Dyches. We looked up online and turns out Styrofoam was a colloid. Dang it. We looked up online and thought for almost an hour for methods to be successful. We found an idea to add cereal to help reduce the impact, involving Rice Krispies and plastic bags. It seemed successful, though we called it a day today. It was already becoming dark outside. I walked home and then told my Mom of what happened at the house and then she told me that when she went to the conference with the teachers (of forgot, I had the conference at lunch, but then my parents took their own conference with the teachers) and was notified by the Science teacher that he wanted our engineering to be sophisticated and include a lot of springs and elasticity. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DO THAT?! Ugh. I’ll figure it out some other time. Anyway, now everything has led up to now. I have to study a little bit for homework and do Bible Time, so bye!

Enjoy your time wherever you are and bye!
