Hey guys! Andrew here bringing you a new post of my daily life. Apolgies for that. I was busy and turns out, when I was supposed to go to the library, we had a lesson for advisement, which is apparently every Tuesday on the week. So I came late to the library and tried to post something, but I only got about 4 paragraphs down in about 10-15 minutes and then had to go to Lunch. It doesn’t mean that I’ve completely given up on you guys, don’t worry. But the song/video I wanted to present to you guys for today was a song called “Uppers” (a Trap song) from Stooki Sound and Mr Carmack. Two very brilliant Trap artisits that I believe you should go and listen to if you’re interested in listening to some good trap music. This song has amazing and booming bass that will blow you Trap fans away! Enjoy.
So today was pretty simple and organized. For once . . . I asked my Mom yesterday if she could drive me early to the school because I couldn’t walk to school or go to the bus-stop for neighborhood since I had an injury. Oh, and I will explain near the end how I got the injury. Don’t worry. I also needed a ride to my high-school early so I could finish my Mythology PowerPoint project. I did get a ready, but instead from my Dad. I actually am growing quite fond of talking to my Dad. Even though he’s always on my case about my diction and how I need to pronounce my words better (when actually he just can’t admit his hearing is getting worse), I still have great conversations with him in the matter of 10 minutes. I feel like I can tell my Dad anything and he won’t force his opinion on me like my Mom. No doubt that my Mom is easier to talk to, I still feel more relaxed talking to my Dad.
We talked about random stuff on the way to the school until he had to drop me off. Today, I brought my green Cross Country gym bag with a pair of my best shoes in them because a friend of mine at P.E. wanted to rent my shoes for 3 days for $5. It sounded like a perfect idea because he really liked the shoes and I would make a starting profit so I could start my PopTart business. So, having a backpack on my back, and a gym bag on my arm, I walked so confidently, ready to make business. I went to the Media Center library at my high-school and worked on the project, finishing the last touches.
In P.E. the guy I was supposed to meet actually forgot to bring the money, which was a big downfall on my side. Thankfully, I also brought 50 cents with me to pay my overdue book. P.E. wasn’t really fun or interesting. I just made shots and gossiped with some of my gal-friends. God, that sounded gay. It was pretty dreadful to waste my time over there and not do something productive with my 1 hour in P.E..
In Honors Language Arts, we did our Bellwork like usual (this time I actually got 98% of the bellwork correct today. After that we did our SSR Reading. I believe our SSR Reading is one day then the day after the next day, if I’m right or if that makes sense. I’m reading Beyonders or “A World Without Heroes” (never can tell which one is the title since they’re both in big bold text). It’s a really good book to be honest. I’m halfway through the book and I’m reading it really slow, so I could have been done with the book about a week and a half ago. It’s a really good book so far, and the details that are put into the book that describe the setting, mood, etc of the book really amaze me, plus I learn some new vocabulary words. After our SSR Reading, we went to the Media Center Library to work on our Mythology projects. Thankfully I finished it, so now all I could do was check with Coach Dawson (my Language Arts teacher) to see if what I was doing right or wrong and just to proofread and edit. I finished it then turned it in. I think I’m one of the few that finished the project sooner than most.
Biology was confusing today, cause Mrs. Labocetta kept making me try to make assumptions on our directions of the paper, which pisses me off because everyone seems to know what she means and I seem like the stupid one in the whole situation. I’ll always have to work hard and put effort for everything. That’s just me! Though, the only reason why I put up with Biology is because:
#1: I’m patient. More than others.
#2: I like Biology and Sciences.
#3: We’re do a Chemistry lab focusing on the molecules and chemicals formed in a structural method.
#4: I just sound smart saying #3, which makes me feel good about myself.
She then told us that we had to turn in our Mid-Term Reviews based on the sheets that she gave us today, which kind of puts me on my tipping point because it reminds of the review that I finished for the Unit 2 Test and I had it ready to turn in on that day, but I didn’t hear say we had to turn in the study guide anywhere. No indication. Not even an announcement, but yet everyone else knew they had to turn in their Study Guide. I’m gonna get a 0% on it, what the freak! I even explained my story and she said “I don’t accept late study-guides”. Gosh, fml.
Math was making a lot more sense. Mrs. Medina (the Math teacher) reviewed over the homework she gave us yesterday, and thankfully I got the majority of the answers correct. It gave me a confidence booster. When we were finished reviewing over the homework, she gave us the quiz we were supposed to be taking today. It was hard immediately when I looked at the paper, which made me angry. Because every time I’m taking a test or a quiz in Mrs. Medina’s class, the first few questions are nowhere related to what we’ve been studying or they’ve been designed in a format that I find confusing. What the french toast?! I still finished the quiz pretty fast compared to others (wasn’t the first 3 to turn in the test, though). She then gave us a review to do to get ready for the Mid-Term tests coming up this Friday and apparently this Review is gonna be graded. Goshdangit. I hate graded reviews.
The French test was really easy. It was on the 24 hour and 12 hour clock timing and seeing if we could tell what was morning, afternoon, and evening and to first of all tell the time in French. It was very easy, surprisingly. I was one of the first to finish it and could of been the first person to get up from my seat but I bet the others are either brilliantly fast in writing or they don’t write as carefully as I do. I can guarentee I have an A on the test, if not a 100%.
IDT was really interesting and rewarding for me because I got to solve my Scratch problems and finally perfect my Pong game. It looked great and when I created a new Scratch file and programmed the right code with the Pong instructions I named the file “Pong Patch 1.0”. I feel like a smart programmer that I got to create my own visual game through a bunch of code. You probably don’t understand the feeling, but once you get there you’ll understand. 😉
I got to go on the bus back home this time since my Cross Country couch said that I couldn’t go to practice at all with my ankle-brace (still have to explain my injury). It was fun being able to ride the bus and talk to my friends. Sarah was on the bus and so was Markel, as usual, and getting to talk to my friends was very relaxing.
When I got home, I had so much homework. It was unreal. But now I have to explain my injury. Two days ago, when I ran Cross Country and did the Hammer Time pace, I ran too hard on the 1000 meter workout. I had a bad pain on my ankle, which made me unable to run or walk on my cool-down. So instead I went limping the whole cool-down, trying not to complain too much about my pain. When we got back to the building and stretched, I picked up my stuff from the boys locker room and made my way home. Now this was worse for me, because going home and limping was not going to look right for other people passing by me and it would certainly take loger than usual to arrive home. I was 1/4 distance in to getting past Richland Park neighborhood and arriving to my neighborhood, when my Dad passed by with what was apparently my brother, Matthew. I thought they drove by and were gonna drive back and pick me up. So I went back to the start of Richland Park neighborhood and waited for 10 minutes. After that time, I assumed my Dad was not going to arrive and I walked back to where I was previously. I won’t lie, I cursed at my pain, because trying to walk normally back home was a pain. When I arrived home I was liping horribly and my Mom noticed. She took me to the doctor and he told me that I had sprained my ankle from running too hard. Wow. Never thought that would happen. It feels great and awesome to have a brace/cast at first but when you have to take it off to take a shower or go to bed or even wear it going to bed it feels painful and it’s a struggle. Though, on the bright side, I don’t have to go to Cross Country practice until I have it taken off and I’m in perfect condition, and Coach said that I probably might have to end my Cross Country season if I’m missing for 3 days. Awesome and also not awesome at the same time. I’ll ponder on this later.
Anyway! Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!
