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!

I’m Acting ADD Right Now


Right at this moment I can’t focus on one single thing today. Anyways, I had my mild cough. At least it healed a little. It didn’t hurt my stomach anymore. Luckily. 😀 Well, I started with Literature. They let me read my own novel. Unfortunately, the best novel I liked that was available, was 20,000 leagues under the sea. Hey, Jules Vernes used to be my favorite author, until I read Rick Riordan’s books, they’re good. Lol. Anyways, I read about 5 chapters and then moved on to Social Studies. I didn’t really put any notes in it. Lol. But, I passed it with a 100%. After THAT, I started messing around and playing my guitar. I think I might make a good band. Anyways, after I was done training on a song I went directly to Composition. Wait, I messed up the chronoligical order. I had an elluminate on Social Studies. I couldn’t really focus. It was SO hard. They would mention about Canada’s physical features, which is just the thing I need to study on.

Unfortunately, I was too packed in my mind. I only got Canada, Rocky mountains and needed for portfolio. Lol. I better start studying. 😀 I prayed to God for my temporary ADD to go away. Unluckily, elluminate was already over. Then I tried focusing on Math, and I was still offtrack. Okay, I kind of blame my Math teacher for that because she mentions EVERY SINGLE DETAIL and goes too fast. Now, I have an excuse for that. All I learned was how to turn decimals into fractions and how to turn fractions into decimals. I kind of fell apart at the end and the beginning. I guess this is the time I get my first ADD problem as a boy. Lol. When that was done, Nayyir called me, so I asked my mom if I could spare a few of my break minutes on the phone. Nayyir started mentioning about how I missed the first Science elluminate and how there was a girl I liked in there that he chatted with.

Now, the rest gets pretty private, because we talk about some personal things. Anyways, I did my Composition, got a hard 95% for passing and then went straight to Math. It was basically another page I had to study with in the lesson about circles. I practiced and only got one mistake. After I did the test I got 100% which is REALLY good. When I was done, more things got private. Actually most of the day was private. Lol. I’ll just say what else happened. When I came outside Patricia’s friend and Patricia were picking red peppers from a neighbor’s yard. So, I told them to quit it. Eventually Patricia’s friend picked about 15 more red peppers. Almost enough for our neighbors to realize. Wonder what excuse I’m going to have to come up with once they come to me. I had to take a bath, and trust me, it doesn’t feel good with my two scratches. Afterwards I watched Glee with mom. Here’s the trailer of it.

I HATE Geometry


Okay, I’m kind of posting this around a really early time, so sorry for that. Anyways, today I couldn’t get singly memory out of my head. I can’t remember time and things happening. Am I losing my touch? Well today I woke up with a light head. Don’t know how that came out like that. Well, anyways, today I was studying some more on Literature (Subject: Greek Mythology). Today I had to learn the first session of Jason and the Golden Fleece. You’ve probably heard of it, since almost all of you people are older than me. Anyways, it took me awhile to finally end the whole chapter because I was reading 31 pages of huge letters with complicated adjectives. Now, Percy Jackson is a pretty long book. But, I don’t really like being told by a school to read that much. Wonder how much I’m going to get for the next session. Luckily, there isn’t anymore assessments for Literature unless it’s the Unit Assessment. Besides that, I only have to read, study, answer questions, and if possible, write them down.

Then, I had to study on my Social Studies museum I wrote a report about 3 days ago. Unfortunately, I only had to make my parents look at it, and result it. It was pretty easy since my mom already checked it earlier. Anyways, Science was boo. It got too easy because… well, it was a Unit Review. And there always easy. Just go through the lessons and answer the dumb questions the school asks you. Math UGH!! I HATE Geometry. I just realized. The first two units were pretty much the easiest Pre Algebra topics in the whole world. But, Geometry… it’s just so ridiculous. I get answers right, but I can’t even tell if I got those specific answers right. Luckily, I don’t want to be a construction worker or any tool person. Because I’m not sure if this Geometry thing is on my side. They start asking ridiculous questions about rays, segments and lines, and skew lines, which I just forgot.

They start saying such complicated things. It was so funny for my mom and I. I wasn’t frustrated, nor happy. We just kept laughing to perk up our spirit. Lol. Well, today was fun I guess. Later on, we were told by our mom that we had to stay outside for half and hour. Only two things making that irrelevant was 1. It was freaking cold outside (which we took care of with jackets), 2. There was barely any people outside in this weather condition. But, we had to go anyways. I tried going to Marvin’s house to ask if they could come out. Unfortunately, they couldn’t. But, I did tell them this secret. See, my sister told me yesterday that her friend had a crush on one of my friends Douglas. Which made me so… ugh.. irritated. My sister’s friend can’t do that. She has no idea about any f*cking romance. I can’t tell whether it’s frustrating or sad. I told Marvin and they gasped.

Anyways, we later on went inside to watch Prince of Persia. And I have to say it’s my second favorite movie for my whole life, and it is my favorite movie this year. I have to say Avatar the Last Airbender was a load of crap. Sorry for my brutal language today. I just got too hyper. Well, I guess that’s all. See ya.

I Tend To Screw Up All The Time


June 14, 2010
This is no joke, I screw up at things all the time. It’s just a temporary thing that happens for the rest of the day. I do bad several days, then, it builds up in one day. But, I can predict that day coming. It usually comes at me whenever it’s just too much mistakes build up in me, then, it’s decided when it’s time for punish time for all the mistakes I made. It’s just a cycle that revolves around me. I’m actually thankful to have that, because it reminds me how bad it feels to do bad. Have you ever gotten that feeling. Well, I’ll have to force it into you so, you’ll understand. Lol.

Hey guess what? I had a dream. Two actually. But, let me first start how it happened. I was downstairs around, hmm… let me see, around 5 in the morning. And I just ended up around the computer because I was bored. Usually I would get grounded doing this early in the morning. But, my mom and I made a deal that I was allowed to go on the computer in the mornings. But only on my blog that’s it. After I was done doing whatever on the computer, I heard these noises. Thumping, screeching, footsteps, it was really creepy. I thought a man was inside the house. I got so scared, I wouldn’t move a single muscle. I tried to heard some of it. Unfortunately, I heard lots of noises. Then, I got so scared, I turned the light on around the kitchen. Which was bad, because, if there was somebody. I would see their shadow from the desk. I turned on the TV. It actually helped me from hearing things, or it at least distracted myself from being paranoid. The only good show that was on, was “Family Matters”. I’ve heard and seen my mom watch it. It has a similarity to the show the Cosby Show. Except it’s funnier. Lol.

Well, when I finished watching, I ended up going upstairs to my floor bed. After that, I dreamed. Two dreams. But, they’re pretty private and I don’t need to waste my time. So, after my dreams everybody was awake. It was around 11 in the morning. Well, my dad asked in a cheerful way if I wanted to go watch with him the World cup (i’s like a super ball except for Soccer) when Japan and Cameron faced each other. Just FYI, it already went off. Japan won. Though, I didn’t actually notice he mentioned world cup because I was so drowsy. Luckily, I was smart enough to have a feeling that something was going on. In the middle of the game the channel changed to Ninja Warrior because it was being recorded. So, we only saw half and by the looks of it, Japan won! But, my dad said we were going to play Wii as a family. Well, I didn’t get that expression because my mom was at work and my little sister (Anabelle) wasn’t allowed to play until we all got off. Although, when we were doing bowling, I was giving up some bad regrets for my siblings and decided to tell them some bad compliments. My dad seemed disappointed in me. That’s when I knew I screwed up. 😦

After the Wii, my mom called and said we were getting ready for the swimming pool. So, we got ready as fast as possible. But, the faster we did it, the longer we had to wait. But, what the heck, lets do it quickly. It took awhile for my mom to get back from work. Then, we got ready to go to the pool. Unfortunately, my mom wasn’t happy with the jokes I was making with my siblings. She gave me the evil eye to keep quiet. But, when I started to stop, Matthew was annoying me. I tried to ignore. But, before I was about to hit him, we were already at the pool. We didn’t find my mom’s friend until 5 minutes passed. Unfortunately, Allison (my parent’s friend’s daughter) mentioned none of her friends were coming. So, it looked like I was going to be bored the rest of the pool day. But, I seemed to work things out. Though, I made my mom embarrassed in some weird way in front of public. That’s when I knew I screwed up AGAIN. Lol. The pool was for about 3 hours long. So, yeah, interesting I guess.

Well, they asked if we could go to my parent’s friend’s house (okay lets be more specific, her name is Ms. Amy). We all accepted like we would usually do. Though, when we just got to their house Ms. Amy’s son Andrew asked my brother Matthew if he could play the Xbox 360. He couldn’t because he needed his glasses to play video games. Well, this time Matthew screwed up. After that, we all went down stairs while my dad isolated himself in his new phone world. I eventually got bored. I went outside. Unfortunately, Matthew wanted to go to Sophie’s house to ask if she wanted to come out. (Matthew thinks he found his new girl because his old one for some reason likes someone else) Eventually, her sister Lindsey (I actually met her last time at the pool) came outside. We talked and did the regular miserable-life and miserable-relationship talks. It was always interesting talking with her. But Andrew, (Ms. Amy’s son) thought we were having a crush on each other. Well, I tried not to let that bother me. But it was getting annoying. But here comes the painful part. When Matthew started to say that we had a crush on each other, I fell over this wood thing and it ended up hitting in between my legs really hard. I fainted. I tried not to cry in front of public so, I held it in. But it was so painful. I needed to go in the bathroom. For some reason I was hurting so much, I started talking in a high pitch. My mom and Ms. Amy laughed at my humor. I went outside, thinking I embarrassed myself. But, the rest of the day ended badly. Screw the wood pavilion they had. Lol.
