Touchy Girls and an Epic Basketball Game!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life! The song/video of today is a song called Demons by Imagine Dragons. A beautiful song to Imagine Dragon’s great role of making awesome music. Though, I find it interesting how the song only has 18 millions views compared to most of Miley Cyrus’s songs. JUST SAYING! Anyway, enjoy!

So today was very interesting. I woke up feeling very tired. Mostly because over the last weekend I stayed up till late 9 or early 10 o’clock at night, which now you guys are thinking “That’s not even late!”. Trust me, when you gotta be ready for a bus that comes around 6 o’clock in the morning around the Fall season (which not to mention is cold as balls) sleeping around 9 o’clock is a decent sleep schedule for proper brain function. Say otherwise and I call bullcrap. My Dad came into my room in the pitch black dark, telling me I needed to wake up and what time it was now, in which I turned to my watch activated the light button so I could see the time in the dark and then got up. I almost felt like falling back asleep. Today’s choice of clothes wasn’t really nice for me since I had worn a lot of my good clothes recently. I wore these really thick jeans that would protect me from the outside and then wore a T-shirt with a Hollister sweater ontop. I eventually realized, once I went downstairs to pack up all my school things, that the T-shirt underneath my sweater was showing on the neckline. It annoyed me to no end! I couldn’t stop it unless I cut the T-shirt neck line to a shorter size. I tried not to focus on it too much.

I left the house once my Mom came downstairs and made me brush my teeth and wash my face before she applied the acne creme and let me leave the house. Once I was done brushing my teeth and splashing cold water across my face, my Mom did as she promised and applied acne creme. Then I took 3 Pop-Tarts and left the house, giving my farewells to my Mom. Outside was nowhere as cold as yesterday. I guess because of the jeans I had on. I saw Sarah next door with her house door open getting ready to get out of the house. I walked down from my cul-de-sac and arrived at the bus-stop, coincidentally arriving at the bus-stop with Markel. Markel was wearing shorts and he confessed it was not even cold, so I guess it wasn’t the jeans! Sarah later came and then stood with us at the bus-stop, talking about her home-coming experience and a bunch of other things. Finally, when the bus came, which seemed to be in no time, we got on and just as I prayed for a seat to be open for me, there was a seat on the second row of the bus. Now that is proof that’s not just coincidence! Markel sat next to me and we both talked about random things. I began to sing “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas”, which stirred a great laughter from a lot of the people on the bus.

When the bus arrived, this time, since we were in the front of the bus we had to get up instead of get some extra time to sit down and wait to stand up and walk out, but then again we got to get into the school faster. Today, for breakfast, they had my favorite meal. Biscuits made to be opened in half in the middle of the sides of the bread and a nice chicken breast to place in the biscuit. The meal was so awesome and nutritious, plus it went well with the orange juice I put as a side. I arrived at P.E. and the same Christian group was at the front, this time they had already formed to start a prayer. They all looked at me as I entered the room, I tried to look away so I wouldn’t grab their attention. As I finally walked away from them and started walking downstairs to the lower gym, somebody tapped me from behind and turns out it was Chris. He said he was right behind me the whole time and asked about the group of people over there and how they looked strangely at him too. It was a funny conversation we had for a few minutes, then we arrived at the lower gym and talked to Keila, who was already sitting against the bleachers in our usual spot. We talked and talked until the bell rang and Coach Pierce came out and called roll. Apparently, Chris said his name one time Coach Pierce was calling roll and Coach Pierce didn’t hear him, marking him AWOL, which Chris said was soon going to give him a referral. It was funny how Chris was overreacting about it like a girl. When Coach Pierce called my name, I went into the locker rooms and got changed. Then went out of the locker rooms to enjoy P.E..

P.E. was okay. Not many shots were made by me, and of course, because of that everyone started nagging at me (for nicer words) for not making shots when they were NOT passing at all and expected me to get the rebound. Goddangit, I hate playing with freshman white boys. I made like 2 shots and a black guy made like no shots, yet they come at me. I was about done when they started to completely ignore me and not pass to me at all unless I would go in and pull a ball from some guy. I talked to one of the guys and told him I was pissed off that he was talking all this trash about my basketball coordination and then we got into an argument. I was the one arguing with more attitude, which seemed to shut him up and try to be nice to me. By that time, P.E. was over and we went back in and out of the locker rooms.

Honors Language Arts, the girl Nasir who owed me money, told me she was going to pay me $4 on Friday. I’m going to soon make a list of everyone that hasn’t paid me back and start charging interest for late payments. Jimmy said he had a $5 bill, but he didn’t want change of quarters (which still annoys me why people had coins for change), so I told him he could bring the $5 tomorrow and I could figure out a way to give him his change. We read more about the Odyssey and had finally finished the 1st part of the story. I’m pretty sure we were given another assignment to do tomorrow and work on, so I feel pretty confident about the class so far. We also have a test on the Odyssey on Thursday, if what I remembered was correct.

Honors Biology was depressing because of all the times in the world, when my Mom says that the teacher will bring up a “Pop Quiz” when I’ve never had a “Pop Quiz” in my public school life, my Biology teacher decides to create a Pop-Quiz off the notes we took yesterday. Of course, as stupid as I am, I didn’t study the notes cause I was too busy focusing on the Math quiz today. Ugh. School is a douchebag.

Accelerated Math was sort of confusing. The quiz we took was okay, but I knew I failed a couple of questions and am probably gonna get a B on the quiz, if not a high C. I’m angry because no matter what I do in this woman’s class, I can’t get to an A. It’s impossible. The quizzes are basically made for you to know every fricken scenario in Math, which is not my strategy. Grr!

French was okay. Lunch was particularly interesting. I came to my usual lunch table, but did not sit in the same spot because this kid who used to sit with us decides to sit with us now and apparently doesn’t even know me but doesn’t like me or want to socialize with me, so I automatically dislike him. I sat on the far left of the table and my sophomore friend, Taylor, told me to sit on her lap. Oooh. Okay! ūüėÄ At first, it was kind of strange for me to do at first, but then I just sat normally, plopped on her lap. The weird part and kind of interesting part was the fact that she kept touching my stomach and chest. Genavive (if I spelled her name right), my ex girlfriend was right in front of this and was automatically uncomfortable. I was uncomfortable to be honest as well. I tried to flex my six-pack whenever Taylor would feel against my stomach. Corbin, an ex of Taylor’s also sat with us at the table. He tried to smile and not pay attention, but I felt so bad for him. Taylor and I were both killing our exes slowly. Near the end of lunch, the lunch man that comes by and throws away our trays saw me sitting next to Taylor and gave me the evil glare. He didn’t speak, but pointed his finger up and pulled out a chair and threw it next to me. Awkward. ūüė¶ I sat next to Taylor still and laughed with the group about it. When I left to class from Lunch, Keila happened to walk by me and we walked hugged each other like we never saw each other. Thing is we’ve doing this for a long time, but every time we do it, the hugs get tighter. I don’t know. Probably just over-thinking it. IT’S A SIGN! ūüėÄ

Digital Technology was slowly becoming sensible and not much of a hassle. Though, most of the girls who were in my Digital Technology class were “all up on me”, sitting on my lap as well. I guess the girls are touchy this time of the year. I guess this all pays off for my absence from Homecoming. ūüėȬ†I took the bus back home, but realized on the way that I had a Science Olympiad meeting and forgot. DANGIT. I am so forgetful and stupid.

Eric on our bus started talking with us about the basketball tryouts and Markel and I said we were gonna tryout, which then lead to our conversation of when we challenged Eric to a basketball game. Markel and I beat him, but Eric claimed he wasn’t trying his hardest. So, Markel and I challenged him to a game of basketball. Now, I now it’s both Markel and I, and when we come together our plays are really good, but Eric is a Junior Varsity Football player and super buff and can really dribble the ball, so it’s almost a fair game. When the bus dropped us off on our bus-stops, Markel and I immediately came out of our houses and practiced on our basketball hoop for about 15 minutes and then went to Eric’s house to pull him outside. All three of us warmed up with some shots for about 10 more minutes and then started our game. We went to 40 points (counting by ones) and we counted wins to each others teams by who got to each 10 of 40. Like who got to 10, 20, 30, or 40. Turns out, after so much sweat and dry laughs, Markel and I got tied with Eric on the 40 point part. I figured out Eric’s strategy and figured out how to pull the ball out of his hands and when his weaknesses were exposed. So, in order to even out of the odds, we had another game by trying to get to 5. Eric did amazing and beat us by 2 points. So, therefore, Eric won. It was an amazing game and wish I could give more details, but it’s 9:01 PM at night and I’m super tired. So, there you go. That was pretty much it for the day. I just continued studying and listening to music throughout the day till this moment right here where I’m posting to you guys.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Why I Didn’t Go To Homecoming


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. The video/song I am going to present to you is a video from one of the Youtubers I watch named Syndicate and this video is not with music at all. It’s just plain funny. At least in my opinion. Enjoy!

So today was very brief in a sense. I woke up, like every usual school morning. I got my clothes together and this time I wore a T-shirt with a light-black (if that’s a color) jacket that had a logo saying “Running” with a lightning bolt ontop of the text. A pretty cool jacket for me to wear, definitely. I wore my Vans pants once again, because they’re just so amazing. They feel so comfortable and fit the style I’m trying to go for in terms of going looking slick and serious. Now, I do notice that every time I talk about the clothes I wear for the day I sound gay. No doubt about it. But it’s all about fashion my bros. You gotta look good and this is my blog, so I can express my thoughts of my fashion choice . . . ¬†Now that sentence made me seem even more gay. Moving on!

I took 3 Pop-Tarts so I could sell them today and I was happy to arrive to school getting the money from the two people who bought my Limited Edition Pop-Tarts. I was supposed to be getting $4 because I charge $2 for 1 Pop-Tart packet. The Asian boy in my class, Jimmy bought one from me and I was expecting that he was going to repay me since he was always a goody-too-shoes in class and was always remembering things on a frequent basis (I notice this because he’s in three of my classes/periods). The other person I was waiting to be paid from was a girl named Nasir. A Chicago girl with a strong attitude, but a short, skinny body. Shorter than my oldest sister Patricia. When I gave my Mom a kiss and then had prayer with her, I left the house. A chilly breeze of cold air blew at me. God, it was freezing! I was trying to ignore it, since I had experienced colder weather and had not felt a single problem, but even with the jacket and jeans on, I was still cold. I went to the bus-stop and arrived there at 6:20-6:25 in the morning. I waited for what felt like an hour for Markel to come out and talk with me so I could be distracted by the hellish cold that bit at my cheeks. Sarah came around, I didn’t talk to her and therefore Markel didn’t accept her into the talk we were having. Markel and I talked about the cold for the remainder of the time and then just thinking how bad it was going to get in the future until the bus finally arrived and hopes went up. The moment I got on the bus, there was an air vent on the stair-case of the bus and I was almost rejuvenated. I looked for a seat on the bus and turns out a lot of the seats were occupied. I had to sit next to an Asian dude and the guy was nice. He didn’t seem too angry about me sitting next to him. He was a rather interesting fellow.¬†As we drove all the way back to school, I just sat still and tried to relax myself from the cold and breath in warm air.

When we arrived at the school, Markel walked ahead of me and I was walking by myself. There was this girl I recognized from a couple of days ago who talked to me for a long period of time when we met and I almost wanted to touch her on the shoulder and tell her I was right behind her (basically say “hi”), but I held back and assumed she was probably too sleepy or too busy and would not be happy if someone tried to grab her attention. I saw Erick in front of me and caught up with him as we walked inside the school. He was wearing his tight clothes as usual to show off his broad shoulder muscles and bulging pecs. Nonetheless, the much of a showoff and person that cared about his reputation so much, he was still one of my best-friends in this school that was actually down to Earth and cool. We talked until we separated and I met up with Markel in the breakfast isle. He walked with me all the way to the point where we had to separate again to our classes and then I was again by myself. On my way to the gym I was hesitating to enter the way I usually do because there was a Christian Leadership Club and the people there would try to force me to pray with them. I don’t know. I guess I get extremely annoyed when I have to pray multiple times, especially right after yesterday’s crazy church madness. But, I still went through the same way and tried not to make eye-contact with the club-members of the group. I went downstairs and talked with Chris and Keila. Chris, as usual, was bragging of some unusually stupid thing he accomplished somewhere and then started comparing himself to me in which we would always get into arguments of who was better. It was a fun activity for us to do as friends. Keila would usually keep her mouth shut when we did this and waited until she could talk about what was on her mind.

Chris and I did this for awhile until the class-bell rang and Coach Pierce came out of where he usually comes from to call roll. He called roll and we went on with P.E.; today in P.E. was pretty interesting. I actually started to make shots on the amazingly good basketball players that played against me in P.E.. I had figured most of the people and how they played basketball and their weaknesses all the way to the point that I managed to make the majority of the points for the team. It was rewarding. We won in the end. And then P.E. was over.

Honors Language Arts we read some more of the Odyssey story until the class period finished and did our usual routine of Bellwork and SSR reading. Nasir, the girl who paid for my Pop-Tart, and Jimmy, the boy who paid for my Pop-Tart said that they had no money right now cause they either forgot it or got grounded and didn’t get their allowance. Great. Near the end of class, we went to the Computer Labs next door to start our USATestPrep. Erick, him being in my class, sat next to me and we talked the majority of the Computer Lab time through until the bell rang.

Honors Biology was a disappointing period, since we had a quiz and I had all weekend to study for it, yet I forgot and didn’t. It wasn’t like I didn’t KNOW the topic we were learning, but the questions were so specific, I just felt strangling her for doing this and torturing me. I was supposed to be making A’s! What is this? I felt like I failed the quiz, which was a very depressing thought for me to ponder on. Also Kaitlin, the girl who sits next to me informed how Homecoming went. Turns out there was a lot of girls twerking at the Homecoming and a lot of guys got stiff-ones (to say it nicely). Well, yeah, that’s the major reason for me not going to homecoming. Not because I’m against twerking, heck no. Well, actually, I kind of find it disturbing seeing 14 year olds with absolutely no butt twerking. It just makes me think that nobody would probably twerk on me from the school. It was another depressing thought to take on. I know I’m not even supposed to be having girls “twerk” on me, but I kind of wish at least if I didn’t go, I know that if I did go some girls would like me enough to “twerk” on me. I don’t even know why I’m complaining about this. ūüėõ

Accelerated Math was starting to make more sense to me now. Awesome. We have a quiz on Math tomorrow and I need to practice for it.

French was really not that interesting. Just me doing my homework and being told that we have a quiz tomorrow as well. I noticed that Math and French usually have quizzes on the same day on a lot of occasions. Funny. Lunch wasn’t even really interesting. We just talked about nasty things to make each other sick at the table, while I just laughed my heart out the whole time at my friends reactions.

Digital Technology was once again a struggle since we had to work on a new project when I have to finish like two other games and then these projects. It’s beginning to stress on me. I should probably do all my work usually, yeah. Sounds like a good idea.

I stayed late at school so I could go to the Cross Country informational meeting. Cross Country season is now over. Now is the time for Winter Sports. I’m applying for Basketball during the Winter then for Track and Field. Once the meeting was over I walked home the whole time, thinking of things that rhymed with each and creating nice raps to distract me from the long walk home. I went home, ate a nice food and studied. Now I also remember I had to read for my Honors Language Arts class. Dangit. I’m gonna go get to that.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Great, an Injury!


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.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYfqFj0IUlE

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. ūüėČ

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!

High-School Is A Struggle


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. I’m right now at the Media Center in the high-school I’m going to, which is basically the library in short. I’ve come up with a method to do some posting for you guys from the Media Center where 20-30 minutes of time is provided for me. Hopefully you won’t have a problem with it if you enjoy my posts. ūüėČ No music/video for today, cause I’m at my high-school and apparently Youtube is restricted from the computers here as well as Wikipedia and Twitter, which is stupid, but oh well.

Today, first day back from school, after an awesome weekend was a bit foggy.¬†I haven’t been paying attention the stuff going on in my life lately. Everything’s¬†a blur. Nothing seems too important to me. I guess it’s something you get used to when you’re really busy in high-school and get¬†only a certain number of hours to sleep. I mean, I can remember the conversations I had with friends and with people I don’t know, and when I look back at those conversations I actually am surprised those people talked to me and that we talked about that certain thing. I don’t know. Even in classes. Teachers say some crucial information. I can’t seem to process any of it. It’s really weird. It feels like everything is blurred, unless I put my mind to memorize¬†that scene/memory. I know, it’s weird. Don’t judge.

P.E. was one of the high-lights of today. I played an actual game with the people who weren’t playing Soccer and practiced shots with me. Chris, a friend of mine in P.E. since the beginning of the year, played the game with me along with a few of my other friends. Andrew (not me, of course), also played and played on my team. I’m kind of negotiating whether I should talk to Andrew after the incident that happened with Sydney (my friend) at church. I don’t feel like explaining what happened now, still feel a bit hungry. Lunch is in about 15 minutes from now anyway . . .

I actually made 3 shots in the basketball game since it was just a 3v3 and Andrew really had no choice but to pass it to his friend that was playing on my team or me. So, it was a really good game. For once I’m getting better at playing basketball games with teams of people I don’t know. It’s especially¬†important for me since I want to apply for Basketball.

After P.E., was Honors Language Arts. We just did our Bellwork (when she gives us a sentence to work on for a week, and we have to correct it in different ways each day of the week [today was parts of speech]), then our SSR reading (when we’re given 10-15 minutes to read a book we picked specifically from the library) and now that I think about it, I’m gonna have to finish my SSR reading novel in about two days because I need to pay back the library for my overdue.

Honors Biology, was a blur. I just remembered that she showed us the test that we took on Friday (a big test over the¬†unit) and pointed out how we failed those questions and pointed out how stupid we were messing up those questions. It felt embarassing that I was one of the stupid people in the class. I’m hoping that my grade average was at least an A. I’m confident of it. But then again, lately everything I’ve been confident about has bit me in the butt (for nicer way to say).

Accelerated Math, I did not even pay attention, I tried to pay attention and comprehend what the teacher was saying, but nothing was connecting, and all I did the duration of the class period was tilt my head and lean it against my arm and try to make myself go to sleep and skip the whole hour of this boring and unproductive class period. I remember faintly we were going over different types of graph functions such as Odd and Even functions. I got that part, but the parts where polynomials and equations involving symmetry came in,¬†I started to get confused and panicked in my mind. I’m not usually this half-hearted about everything. It’s definitely not because of video-games. It’s got something to do with the food I’m eating, people I’m around, and especially the people I’m hanging around. That’s the only thing I can concur with.

French was actually a fun class. I got to crack a nice “Lilo and Stitch” joke. Only to have my friend Max try to one me up and use Stitch’s voice to get the attention of the class. Otherwise it was a fun class. We got a bit into the new unit of French we’re going to be working on. “Family”. After that, it was just waiting for the class to end for me.

Digital Technology made me feel smart since we were doing some sort of programming and commands with this program the teacher is making this class use called “Scratch” which can make a large amount of things. Today, we were designated to figure out how to construct the game “Pong” from “Scratch” which had a lot of programming and code involved. By the end of my project, I had so much more code than most of the people around me, it felt so awesome. I don’t know, I guess I just like to be better than everybody. It makes me feel at peace with myself.

Cross Country was awesomely tiring. We had to do 4 1000 meter runs, which means we had to run 1000 meters in distance 4 times. The first two times we had to run the 1000 meters we had to run 5K Race Pace, which is the pace we want to run for our next race which is gonna be in Mulberry and is apparently going to be a really “difficult” hill course. The third time we ran the 1000 meter we had to run tempo pace which is in between jogging and 5K Race Pace. 4th time we had to go Hammer speed, in which I like to call it “Hammer Time” *cue the music*. ūüôā I ran the Hammer 30 seconds faster than my fastest run on the 1000 meters, taken in mind the course was covered many hills. I ended up having a sore ankle that extremely hurt when I moved it for our cool-down. I didn’t want to walk though, because the couches warned us that if they catch us walking on the cool-downs then our Cross Country season is over. So I mustered through it. When we came back to the Cross Country locker rooms I ditched the place, immediately. Not even wanting to stretch.

It was a struggle having to walk home, since I had the bad ankle and looked like a retard walking awkwardly with my bad foot. Surprisingly, my Dad passed by me with my brother, Matthew in the front of the car with him. I was so grateful for them, because I thought they were gonna pick me up. Wrong. Turns out, when I wanted an unnecessary 15 minutes for them to drive back to me, I figured that they weren’t gonna pick me up and that my Dad had to do something more important. So I walked home, with the bad ankle and tried to whine too much about it. Though I won’t deny that I cursed many times at my ankle for giving me such a hard time.

When I arrived home, my Mom gave me a lecture about how I was late for home and how she was calling my couches to figure out where I was. I just told her the story of my Dad and how I was confused if he was going to pick me up or not. She calmed down after that, and then I went back outside and got Markel outside to play Basketball with me.

Overall the day was just really a struggle. I love high-school, no doubt about it. I just hate the education part of it. It just feels that no matter how hard I try, the grades don’t come to my standard. It really pisses me off. Otherwise, everything is a blur, and I feel everything is going too fast for me to comprehend.

Anyway! Enjoy your time wherever you are! BYE!

Biology Test and Another Crush?


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you another post of my daily life. Last post, I did a Vine video presentation for you. I felt like that video was entertaining, so I have decided to give you guys another Vine video to present. I might present another one next post, but then that’ll be it with the Vine videos. So for today, enjoy your Vine video!

So to the day. Today wasn’t such a relaxing day as yesterday. Today was the day of the big Biology test. I really wanted to make an A on it, but I had to study a lot because we were going over all the topics we discussed so far in the year. Biomes. Ecology. Characteristics of Life. So on. Unfortunately, I lost my Lab Book. Which was my #1 source for studying. So I had to study on what I had that was NOT in the Lab Book, which was very few stuff since my Lab Book had everything we did in Biology.

I had my Mom drive me to school again early so I could tell Mrs. Cabral about this (she’s my Biology teacher). At first when I arrived the building, she was not in her class. The class was locked and pitch black inside through the tall rectangular window. After 15 minutes, she arrived and I approached her. Turns out I left my Lab Book in the class, so gladly I picked it up and went to P.E. (my first period [first class]). Today we did 4 laps around the Gymnasium Upper Level, which wasn’t so bad regarding I’m in Cross Country. I was in front of many most of the time and I also overlapped a few. Then we went downstairs after our 4 laps to do Lunge walks and then we could “join in” which meant do whatever we want in the Gymnasium like Basketball, Soccer, walking. I decided to do some Soccer. I made no goal unsuccessfully due to the lack of feeling I have now for Soccer. I’m gonna go for it again tomorrow if Basketball does not want to cooperate with me.

Once P.E. was over, I went to Language Arts. Nothing much happened except more homework and more terms we had to study on. We had to read 3 pieces of a book for homework. 1 for today. 1 for tomorrow in class. And 1 for tomorrow’s homework at home. So yeah, gotta love the homework!

Next class was Biology. I was pretty nervous. Not to the point like I always am when I’m waiting for Cross Country in Digital Technology and I get sick to my stomach. No, I just was nervous because the teacher announced she was going to put anybody who got A’s on the test on a black board for excellence. I really wanted that opportunity to shine. Call me selfish, I just really need my grades as high as possible. I took the Biology test and to be truthful it wasn’t so hard. I mean there were a few questions that tripped me up that I was worried about, but I felt like I retained most of the information. I just don’t want to jinx anything.

Math was hard today. We had to learn a new step. Solving equations with 3 variables and 3 equations. A lot of work just for one piece. It was really frustrating because if you messed up one sign or one step all the other steps would mess up too and you would have to start from the beginning. I had homework with 8 problems on the studying we did today. It was frustrating. Though, my friend Vanessa told me something. The blonde girl I had been joking with across the class had been staring at me or looking at me constantly when I wasn’t. Vanessa believed that this girl had a crush on me. I felt like it wasn’t true, but now it slowly made sense to me. She kept looking at me and giving me funny looks. I tried not to focus too much on it, so I ignored it.

French was awesome. Not for others, though. Mrs. Bier (the French teacher) got angry at a lot of people for slacking off and that’s what they’ve been doing. Slacking off the past week. Thinking it’s cool to slack off and get bad grades. Go back to middle-school slackers. This is high-school. Is what I would’ve said to them or what I should say to them. I was given one “Bravo” card for being an excellent student in class and my friend Casey got one too. But he didn’t want it, so he gave it to me. I got 2 bravo cards and was ahead of the class.

Digital Technology wasn’t fun at all. We worked on the project and I had some very interesting information revealed to me both from my partners on the side of my desk and from the salary and money my job made and required in order to be applied in. It was a real eye-opener.

Cross Country was nice despite all the other boring and uninteresting subjects we had to work on today. We had a Recovery run today which meant that we were doing 45-55 minutes of nonstop running from the school to this area 3 miles away and then to run back. It was relaxing after the 400 meter hill run we did yesterday. I got to run with Couch V most of the time and my new friend Amosasee. I don’t know how to spell his name, but if you pronounce it the way I spelled it it sounds exactly the same. I’ll have to get his name on a piece of paper to remember. Couch V is really nice. She’s my favorite couch out of the 3 other couches. She’s friendly and I feel safe around her. I don’t know why, I just do. She’s also really good at encouraging me whenever I improve on something, so of course that goes into key factor.

Once I arrived back home I played a little bit of Minecraft and Joanna came over and watched me play a little bit. Then I did my homework until 10 o’clock. Then I slept, which is why this was post the day after the day I’m actually posting about, but it’ll still say on the post date that it’s on the day I’m still talking about. All the events have led up to now.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

So Far I’m Doing Well …


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. I’m just trying to get back into the vibe of things. You know; with the daily posting on my blog. Something I used to do… Unfortunately, I know for a fact I will not be able to accomplish that unless I make a big change in my schedule. It might come to that since I find my blog so important, but we’ll see. For now I won’t be posting daily until High-School allows me to breathe. So, as usual, we start with the video/song of the day. Today will be a video from BestofVine. Something I’ve been watching a lot. For those who don’t know what “Vine” is and has been living under a rock, I shall explain briefly. It’s a website/app that allows you to record 6 second videos. Trust me, it doesn’t sound like much can come from a 6 second video, but you will be shocked at how creative and funny the videos can be. So here’s the video, enjoy!

I will upload more in the future, but for now. Enjoy the 6 second video. Now to the day.

I don’t have much time to write a long post without typing so fast my parents would come to me and yell at me for not doing homework regarding I have a big test on Biology, but whatever. I’ll make through (which means probably not).

My usual wake-up schedule, usually, is around 5:30 in the morning. By that time the outside is so dark. My Mom usually wakes me up or somehow miraculously I wake up just a few minutes before I’m supposed to be awoken. Take in mind I must be at the bus around 6:28. Today was an exception. I was to leave a bit early and have my Mom drive me to the school so I could get some extra help on my Math homework. I ate break-fast, worked on remaining homework, brushed teeth, then got ready to leave with my stuff all organized in my backpack. My Mom drove me to the High-School, like usual, in the dark, which of course somewhat frightened me since she wasn’t as good of a driver as Dad (nobody tell her I said that).

I went to the Math teacher, Mrs. Medina, and got help. We were working on Substitution, but in her class, she had a reputation for teaching a topic and then in the homework some of the actual questions we studied on were in the homework while others we just had to improvise. I’m not a good improviser. Especially in Math. So this was my 5th time, approximately, visiting her. I was an active visitor, if Mrs. Medina had to say herself. Once I finished with being helped, I went to my next period. P.E.; yeah, I have P.E. at 7:10 in the morning. It feels great. I’m being serious and also sarcastic, if that makes sense. I hope it does.

P.E. was just average today. Though I always had much fun talking to Michael (another friend of mine) and his friend Michelle. I usually stayed on the lower floor of the Gym room to practice my basketball shots, but I got tired of doing the same thing. Tomorrow, I plan on doing Soccer. So far, I believe I have a 100% in P.E.; which means I got a perfect attendance in that class until I get the tests in P.E., then my grade will slowly drop.

Next class, Language Arts. Nothing really exciting occurred in that classroom. Most of the kids are malcontent there, or at least that’s the feel I’m getting. We worked on specific definitions regarding the main idea of Characters. Right now we’re building on our Grammar House. It probably doesn’t make sense to you, which is understandable. I’ll try to get a picture of the work next time I post something. I have an 89% in that class. Just one more percent and I’ll have an A. It feels great to have A’s in a subject. Makes me feel smart!

Biology came after. We did a big classwork project, as usual, in class where we had to associate with other people in the class as group members. I honestly felt the teacher, Mrs. Labocetta or Mrs. Cabral for short, was a fast teacher. More in the sense of she went to fast for me to learn much, but I kind of liked it. It put me to work to listen to her and plus my brain is very adaptive to personalities, unless you’re just impossible. xD Once we finished the big classwork project we were sent to next class with regards of studying for the big 40-50 question test. I sincerely need to make a really good grade on this test and should be studying for it right now.

Once I went to Math class, we focused on working the homework from yesterday. I coughed up a couple of jokes in the class and entertained the class for a little bit, but then focused the majority of the time. I also beat-boxed in the class more than any other class. It’s normal for others, but today was the first day I beat-boxed, so Vanessa, my best friend, in front of me, was ooing and awwing at how impressive I was at beat-boxing and the others admired it too. I honestly did not do beat-boxing for attention. That is just one of the perks, folks!

Next was French. Before we actually have “French” class in “French” class, we have advisement because right after advisement we have to go to Lunch. So once we all went to Lunch, I sat with another good friend of mine I just made this year named Casey. I helped him with the homework for French since I was assuming that since I had other things to worry about over the weekend he would have his homework finished and he could help me with the answers. And “no” it is not cheating cause I’m not copying off of him. It’s help. I just want to get that across. One Lunch was over, we went to class and went over the days of the week and months in French and tried to practice saying “What is the date of today/tomorrow/yesterday/your birthday”, which failed miserably until she got to Keiland, Charisma, and some others including me, who answered perfectly. She got a bit angry, so it wasn’t a really nice time for the class. Otherwise it was pretty fun.

Digital Technology was the next class in which I walked with Casey too. In great time to know, we had another big project added to our list. One studying on big things like jobs we wanted for college and what the salary and income of that job was required and what the standards were needed to be met and what other extra classes we had to take to get a better chance to be in that job. It was really eye-opening for me, to understand the struggle my parents have to go through.

After Digital Technology was over, I stayed over in school–like I usually do–and went to Cross Country. Today we had a hard run of 400 meter hills in which we had to do 6 times. It was extremely stressful because if we couldn’t accomplish all six we would not be able to run the Wesleyan Race, which is this Saturday. I did all six, surprisingly for me, and got in front of my group I belonged to and got in front of the group who was ranked above me. It felt rewarding and extremely tiring because when we were finished we had to have a cool-down of running from the trail we ran back to the school which is a 2 mile run. I don’t understand how that is a cool-down but whatever, the coaches say, I do, is what I think. I ran back to the school with the whole JV Cross Country group and then had to do as much push-ups we could do in 30 seconds and 50 ab-workouts of any kind and then do 2 minute planks. Brutal. Believe me. Then we left and went home.

Usually my Mom picks me up after Cross Country, so I went that way and told her all the great news of today. Great grades and a good run today. Tomorrow, though, I’m having a Recovery run which is so nice for me since I ran the hard 400 meter hills today. Yes baby! ūüėÄ

Once I came back home, I watched some Youtube. Listened to some music, studied for my homework, and then am blogging to you! All of the events have led up to now.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Just a Brief Summary Over What’s Happened in High School


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. This post is going to be quite brief and it kind of explains why I have not been able to post to you guys lately. School’s just been busy for me.

I joined Cross Country. Yeah Big sport. I’ve also joined the Science Olympia. A big prestige group that involves building and crafting cars and other cool projects. It’s also a good group to be in if you want a good record on your profile for College. I’ve already done my first race in Cross Country. It was indeed difficult, especially to get a high-ranking since the others had been in Cross Country since the beginning of the Summer, but I did my best. I made second to last out of 18 people. Basically 17th place. My first race and I’m not last. Woo! I’ve been taking Digital Technology class where soon we will be able to dig into the hardware of the computers and gain the knowledge of computer programming and how to build a computer. I’ve also been taking French. It’s a bit interesting to learn, but not such a difficult subject hands on. I’ve learned my basic “Bonjour” and “J’em a’ppelle” and all that good jazz. We’re learning now more complicated stuff but you get the picture. Math has been pretty fun. In Language Arts we’re reading 10 page short stories that are pretty long and also reading books in general. I’m in Honors Biology (and Language Arts btw [along with Accelerated ALG]), which is a lot of classwork than homework. Though I learn a lot of stuff so I’m pretty happy. I also have P.E. at 7:10 in the morning. It sounds like a lot of work, but by that time I’m with my good friends and we’re all energetic. Thankfully I’m not taking any Social Studies or World Studies classes. I’ll probably take AP Human Geography though.

So there you go! A quick summary of my classes and what I’ve been involved in. There’s still SO much I have to tell all of you guys, but it’s all in good time!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!
