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 Disappointing Sunday


Hey guys, in short, I’m gonna summarize this day. I don’t like ranting and I WAS going to rant, but unfortunately WordPress was too stupid and they did not save my draft. So here I go. Went to church, had a decent time with church mates. Put down a republican child because he was getting on my nerves. I don’t know why I added Republican before child, but I felt like I needed to. Left church and went to the house. Waited for my father to do his thing on TV. Played video games and sucked and raged at it. Left the video games. Then I played on the Wii a little bit and then listened to a little bit of music on my laptop. Afterwards my parents had informed me we were going to go to the Romanian church. So we did. I got to see Brian and followed him wherever with his friends until he told me to shoo away. Brian is a Romanian friend of mine, if you don’t know. Then soon enough we left and went home. Had a subway-like sandwich (hopefully they don’t accuse us of subway copyright, xD) and then went to bed. Simple and quite disappointing. XD

Drama and ‘How To Train Your Dragon’


Nobody (I don’t literally mean it) can right now experience what I am going through right now. I mean . . . I just feel so pressured, irritated, sad and angry. I’m not gloomy or depressed. I am just really confused. Nothing interesting had happened lately . . . I was just reading Order of the Phoenix for a few minutes. I accomplished getting all the way toward page 634. I am very close to edging near the end. My mom had already progressed to The Prisoner of Azkaban. Man, she’s a really fast reader. I just know she won’t catch up to me. It’s logical.

Though, around the afternoon, the baby, Brooke got picked up from her mother, while I was outside with my only friend, whom was a boy. His name was Nathan. Also, what was interesting was that when Nathan and I were having a conversation in the front of the house, when all of the sudden, Sebastian’s son, Matthew (it’s supposed to be pronounced in French), was walking around and than all of the sudden . . . Suzanna walked up behind him and grabbed Matthew by one arm, throwing him in the air into her arms. Nathan and I just gasped in a horrified look. We both knew that was illegal to manhandle another child that was not yours.

But, what could I do about it?

Eventually around the afternoon we all played the Grudge game, because we were all so hyped up on the Grudge since for the past days we’ve been playing in the pool, the Grudge game. Everybody hated the fact that I was playing the Grudge girl because I was always making her kill sound whenever she would murder somebody, and they got scared. Sometimes, I just get really bored of these things. Eventually another neighbor came around and was using a bike. The father was awesome or just cool. He was actually a pretty good socializing person. Plus, Eugen (the wife of Suzanna) and Suzanna were having such a loud argument and loud bursts of tears. Wait, that didn’t sound right.

So, we had to wait an hour for them to stop the fight, so Eugen and Suzanna could leave and we could have the house to ourselves for awhile. My mom handled the bitch Joshua. I’m sorry for that. I just had to say it. Eventually, he just turned quiet, and we watched How To Train Your Dragon. It was an awesome movie to watch allover again. Honestly, I thought they made the movie pretty well. And I was greatly amazed by all the species of dragons and by Night Fury. I want Night Fury as my pet. Except I’ll call him Black Thunder! Epic name right? I’ve seen How To Train Your Dragon about 5 times, and watching it after awhile felt really good. It was so good, that even I hadn’t noticed that Eugen and Suzanna came home. Rachael and Joshua got into a very bloody and dramatic fight until the parents had to deal with it, and make sure they weren’t too close anymore. Odd.

I wasn’t able to read so much of my book . . . so I just closed the light, and fell asleep.

Too Busy/Lazy To Do Anything


I’m so sorry I left you guys hanging there for the past two days. I was to lazy to even reply to your comments yesterday. I guess I felt a little too stressed, because I had to handle my portfolio, my tests and my new gamer informer blog, which I’m still trying to figure out what to post about. So, I’m sorry, I hope you can forgive my blunder for the past two days. I’m going to have to skip Friday and Saturday and go into Sunday, since I don’t really have enough time.

Today’s Sunday, was just like any Sunday I could’ve expected. Except for this. When I was sleeping in, my mom came in my room and asked me to put the light on. See, I may have not mentioned this, but I bought a blue bendable lamp about two or three weeks ago. I guess it didn’t seem that important then. But, what irritated me the most in my sleep, besides the lantern, was the thudding noises my mom made. I don’t really like noises as long as there coming from music or concerts, than I would understand. But, she made thudding noises like crazy. It even made a weird buzzing effect in my ear. So, I decided to moan out the words “Stop making that noise.” Afterwards, I got dressed in one of my new clothes. My new jeans, with golden symbols, and another shirt that had Black Spider Man, except they put him in a way that made him look TOO brutal. But, I went with brutal Spider Man anyways.

When we arrived at church, I’d almost forgot that I was able to run to my part of the church, without parents supervising. The only ironic part was the fact that I had a 5 minute discussion, decided to walk to my group for 30 seconds, and then when I entered the hall Michael (my best friend) came across me. He didn’t realize me by his speed, because he was zipping through places in a few seconds. So, I ran and caught up to him. We’re about the same speed. So, that means Nayyir is PROBABLY slower than me, and Michael is an inch faster. I caught up to him and said hi. We went into the the uh… what was the place called again? Uh… the Cabin! Yeah that. I went up the stairs to the game room. While the girls were hanging around on the first floor. As usual Michael and I would go to the foozeball table, to get ready for our rounds turned.

There was this team that badly got beaten, and then it went to another team, when we came, and then this guys out of nowhere comes here and says it’s my turn. Michael tried to show the awkward face, and explained. The guy didn’t seem to get it, so he turned and went to his game. Maybe he heard, but I muttered on my lips “bitch.” After the team got done, this girl I guess she was in her 7th or 8th grade ages was constantly encouraging us to go and kick our opponents ass. The weird part was the fact that Michael and I weren’t beaten by any team AT ALL. Until we went to worship. Soon enough, a girl walked up to me I guess my grade level, and she said “Hey, I love you!” I turned back and said WTF, except without using initials. She left to my luck and we went to small group. I’m going to skip to going outside details.

When I went outside, it was all, I don’t know, deserted. Until my friend Jordan (who is a 13 year old girl) came about. She brought her Ipod and played all sorts of music, until these two bad things happened: 1. the drunk lady was back in her spot where she had taken her drugs. 2. Patricia’s friend was coming. She still didn’t get the fact that wearing skinny skirts and bending her body forward was still inappropriate. I ignored and noticed my friend Kristan coming down the street. I guess we’ve been friends since the first day of October. We gave each other the man slap and the man hug. We decided to go somewhere else where Patricia’s friend wasn’t. But, I said it was okay. Until King came out and brought Savino we went away. We went to this place that had nosies coming, like footsteps. We ran quickly. I’m going to skip the rest, my dad and I went to the guitar center and then to Aldi to get our supplies. I immediately had to leave my dad empty handed without help because I noticed something up the street. See I’m too lazy to say the details.

I guess we got to play Truth or Dare, and contact each other. Details ain’t important. And I guess that’s all.

I’m Asking WHY?!


this morning (yesterday) was tiring. I was thinking too complicated for some reason because I knew my school wasn’t going to work from 4 am ti’ll 6 pm. So, yeah it was going to be a little difficult to do 5 subjects in less then 3 hours so yeah… sucks. 😦 Well, later on, I was on the computer checking my Farmville and so far it’s doing really well. When I was playing it my dad told me to check the school to see if it would work, and unfortunately, he was right. We went back to school. I was kind of happy and not happy. I first did Study Island since I hadn’t done it yesterday (two days ago) Then, I did some Math. It was pretty easy, I was studying throughout the whole unit about variables. In this lesson if I’m right I was studying variables greater then and less then.

I decided to take a little break, because I didn’t want to become too overwhelmed because I was already overwhelmed. My uncle, well my mother’s brother decided to drop off and ask for some help with the computer, as usual he gives us Chocolate bars when he comes to us. Our aunt just gives us traveling items she finds. Which is BOTH, very treasuring. Finally I finished Math then advanced to Vocabulary. But, our uncle was already gone. I did a Unit Assessment on Vocabulary studying on some words like Bicentennial, centenary, decathlon and monolith. Some other complicated words if you can think of.

After that I decided to just take a picture of my sister’s 2nd plant. CUCUMBERS!! Here I’m not sure, how long it’s been since she’s planted them. But, she says they’ll be ready by September 7th. So soon, the plants grown so fast. Lol. Here’s a picture of one of the best looking.

Lets just hope my friends or sister knows how to take out weeds. because I don’t know, I’m not a planter, so don’t ask me. 😀 After the picture I did my Social Studies, but, my mom already arrived and brought some cereal and food. I ignored that so I could focus on Canada’s collection and how they work their industry, because the whole unit was about Canada. But, my mom said I had to help her, I looked inside the truck and was amazed. So, I took out the camera to get a picture of this.
I took the Moonlight Box on the top, it was kind of heavy when finally 24 seconds hit. But, I was able to process the drop down. Oh and I almost forgot, my dad got into a discussion with some special Jesus people, at first I thought they were Theological experts, but my dad answered that with a laugh. They were some special believers that’s all I can remember. They talked for about an hour, and then left. Later on, I did school, we didn’t have Soccer though, because my mom wouldn’t approve of it. Afterwards, when we were about to watch The Wimpy Kid Matthew and my mom sounded really enthusiastic about watching it. But, we had to take showers. So, Matthew took a quick shower, but I didn’t because I was busy making clay. Someone rang on our doorbell. It was our neighbor Alicia.

Man, two days ago we had a fight with her and reminded her about her past with us and she comes back. Man, she’s really desperate. Whatever, I tried to tell Patricia not to invite her, but Anabelle already did. So, yeah we HAD to watch the Wimpy Kid with Alicia. Then, she got bored, so she excused herself by saying “I need to get something” and she never came back. Wow. Later, I became so annoying and I was constantly making bad moves. I had a bad day during the Evening. After that, we just did Quiet Time and fell asleep.
