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! 😀

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!

First Week Of School


I was sleeping on a Saturday morning. Just so were on the right track here. I thought I was going to bore myself the whole day again. But, I wasn’t. My mom told me to go outside and ask some people to hangout or play with. Nobody in the neighborhood answered except Savino, he then asked me inside to watch a little TV. To me it felt like a bicentennial when we were hanging out. But, afterwards, we had to go outside. I spent some time with my neighbors. I guess there were about… 6 neighbors outside. Including my sister, my brother and I. We had a blast together. I felt some real fun. I was happy. Oh and I did get a lot of comments that day too. 😀

The next day, we went to church, I was motionless. When I was sighting the trees at the Church lot. I was, um… surprised. Because it reminded me of how beautiful this church is. Later on, I went to my class. In worship, it was the regular. Loud noises from the guitar, drums, acoustic and bass. Then, we went in our group. Sorry to say I forgot to give Skittles to everyone. I was frustrated by then because we had a huge amount of people in our group. Then, when church was done. I was sleeping, and waking, sleeping and waking. Then, I did some pillow fights with King and Savino.

First day of school. You expect me to be like the average people. Waking up early and going on the bus. Well, no. I actually just wake up REALLY early brush me teeth, wash my face and get ready for school. Instead I just slept through the first 2 hours I was supposed to start. Then, I started. But, for some reason the school had some technical difficulties on the computer. So, it was hard for us to complete one subject. Because it kept logging off. Then, we had a blast. What work we got, easy. After that, I called my friend Nayyir. Which I haven’t talked to in 4 months. Finally, he gave some of my other friend’s phone numbers. Then, my mom, dad, sister and I watched a movie. It was good. But, it wasn’t that interesting. Afterwards, we did quiet time then went to sleep.

The next day was a totally different thing. Everyone was alert and ready for school. Except we had to watch the recorded assembly for school. It took about 2 hours off our school time. Which took us off track. Unluckily, I wasn’t able to find me English handbook for Language Arts: GUM (Grammer, Using, Mechanics). Patricia was kicking my butt at this. She was ahead of my like woo!! I was stuck only on Math for 3 hours. I had to do this Pre Algebra test. I had to do about, 49 problems of the written part, then 19 for questions. Then, I don’t how many wasn’t completed. My friend Nayyir called me and kept throwing the “You still didn’t finish school?!” in my face. He’s still my friend. But, it was annoying. I eventually went to sleep after that.

After that day, it was an easy day. I was able to wake up around 6 then eat breakfast and start school at 8 tops. Oh and it was really easy. Afterwards, I had an elluminate orientation with my teacher. I was actually expecting it to be long. But, by the next 30 minutes she logged off. My teacher’s voice was kind of low. Like she was sleepy or allergic to something. Her comments seemed promising, but her voice was too blah for me. I just hope she is better then that, because my sister got my old teacher Ms. Riley. I was able to finish even Math in a flash. Then, I finished GUM. Which distracted my time. Luckily, I finished the Unit Assessment. So, I’m moving on to the next unit. Afterwards, my friend Nayyir told me about this awesome game that I have to link to you. http://www.ddo.com/. Awesome game, afterwards, I fell asleep.

I don’t really remember what happened the next day. All I can say is that I did school and breathed air. Okay, lets try the morning after that. I was having a blast. Enjoying myself and feeling like this moment was bicentennial. It was the last day of the first week of school. Yippee!! But, we still had to do school. I on the other hand only had 4 subjects. Which made it even easier for me. But, that’s only because I was supposed to have Study Island and a lot of elluminates this part of the year. But, right now, I ‘m going to have an easy first month at school. I had to do Pre-Algebra, Social Studies, Literature Intermediate level and Language Skills GUM (Grammar, Using, Mechanics) intermediate level. Then, it was all over. Afterwards, my dad and I went to go get the Percy Jackson book Battle of the Labyrinth. Didn’t get it because of the Library changing the time limit. Afterwards, we stayed up ti’ll like 11 at night and then all of the sudden a black out happened for 8 seconds. Besides that we were fine. Then, we went to sleep.

Everything Was Made How It Was Supposed To Be Made


July 8, 2010
Well, I ding done done it. I finally found a success in my life. A good instead of evil inside of me. I was happy. I wanted to sprout and show my happiness. I knew this was also going to be the last 2 days in Florida, but, I was pretty thrilled. I wasn’t really looking forward to staying longer because, the longer we stayed, the worst. I would have to have my mind off the Wii for a long time. I would have to stay in a room until every parent was awake, I had to eat outside constantly (reason why it’s annoying to stay outside: flies, mosquitoes biting and buzzing me and a dirty table). Home is home. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Georgia is my home and will always be that way. I’ll be so ticked off if I had to move from Georgia. Anyways, I had no dream to remember of, so sorry for that alert. But, when I woke up, I saw Alexandra leaving the room than being sent back in the room. Well, I pretended to go back to sleep. But, my mom woke me up annoyingly and saying we were going on a field trip.

I wanted to feel arrogant right now or give my mom some of my whiny begs not to go on a field trip. You know why? Well, for one: it was 7 in the morning. Two: I didn’t have the energy to. And three: I was in a nice moment. Well, anyways, we went out, got breakfast from Mcdonalds (Cinnamon melts to be exact) and got on with the car trip. It took us about an hour to get to where we wanted to get to. But, guess where we expected to go? A small island next to Florida. It had military schools, amazing libraries (I actually replied to Sammy’s comment on my earlier posts at the library), awesome hotels, several mansions and an amazingly awesome beach. But, the problem with that is because, there were barely people visiting those people. So, I thought that was a community waste. The other problem with the place was the temperature was about 106 degrees Fahrenheit. So, when we were taking pictures, we didn’t do so well keeping our eyes open. Well, the last problem I had with the island was basically if we lived here, we would barely get to interact with people because the place was deserted for about 9 months. So, only 3 months of social communication.

We spent time there for about 3 hours and finally left with sand in our pockets, especially in mine. Here’s the thing, I don’t get why people invented pockets in swim-suits. There is really no reason for it. My mom actually agreed with me. But, before we were going to get to the bottom of this we were home. We actually had to swim in the pool to wipe off all the crap. Which was weird and comfortable. But, again REALLY weird. Afterwards, I watched “War of the Worlds” AGAIN except through the beginning. The thing I didn’t like about the movie was the fact it showed how uncivilized and how monstrous people could be to each other when hard times came. Even the main character Tom Cruise killed somebody because he was trying to escape and take down the machines. That was the scary part. Anyways, I had to watch the rest of the movie by myself. When the movie was done the parents were trying to look for a movie to watch. Really? They had already Avatar (navi people), It’s Complicated in their house. That’s enough to choose from.

The day ended actually ended badly. But, the rest of the day was pretty good. 😀
