My First Time Actually Hosting and New TV Series


Mom woke me up. Usually I’d start my posts with the sentence “I woke up”. But no, sadly, Mom woke me up, early in the morning for church. I really didn’t get why we should be going to church because I wasn’t going to be able to go to Transit (my Middle School part of the church) because Transit was having this event called Frequency. So they weren’t going to meet this week. But Mom and Dad told me that I was going to have to host with them. Which means, through my point of view, that I get the doughnuts. 😀

No, actually it means when my Dad and Mom volunteers to help the church. My Dad; the leader of the host team along with this other man who is I’m guessing 60 years old. But most people in the host team are at least 30-50 years old. So as the family got dressed I took my amazingly sweet toaster pop-tart filled with fudge. The others ate along with me the same, except my sister, Patricia. She ate the Halloween pop-tart that I preferred eating during Halloween. Oh and big question of the week for you guys! What are you going to wear to Halloween? Please leave the answer in your responding comment to this post.

Once my family got finished with the food and church clothes we entered into our family van and drove to church. There were more people then I had expected. Wow. I had to go to Big Church with Mom and Dad, which I think is pretty cool, being 12 and listening to an adult sermon, but I knew anyway that the kids who weren’t going to attend Frequency that were coming was going to have to stay with their parents and listen to the adult sermon. First when the service started the band playing on stage played a U2 song that I don’t even know how to name while there was a slide show of pictures from North Point Community Church’s (our church) trips to different places such as Moldova, Venezuela, Brazil, Haiti, some other parts in Africa, and India.

Once that finished the band played 2 worship songs for the crowd and then the sermon, Andy Stanley, whom I greatly respected as a sermon, spoke. He spoke for about 2 or 3 hours about the story of John the Baptist mixed up in the story with this family called the Herod family. It was about how they sent him into jail and how John the Baptist; the greatest man in the world (other than Jesus); lost faith in his own cousin Jesus. It was sort of a deep sermon that I enjoyed to listen to. Andy Stanley also mentioned a death of a woman named Rose who was 101 years old and has been going to NPCC ever since with her grand-daughters, great grand-daughters, and great great grand-daughters. It was pretty sad 😦 But Andy Stanley was able to make it happy.

Eventually it was time to go with my parents to host. The best part; I was actually able to volunteer this time because a woman was absent so I got to fill in her job. It felt good. But embarrassing at the same time because when I was giving the people the offering buckets (which was my job to do) the first 3 rows looked at me like “wtf is this kid doing?!” xD So when I finished hosting I listened to the same sermon over again and then the family left to home; taking a doughnut from the host area. 😛 When we got home in at least 10 mins the neighbors asked if we could come outside. So as usual we said yes and hung out with them outside. Mom left with Patricia and Anabelle to So Good to get some clothes and then to Discover Mill to get Matthew, my brother, a webkinz of his own.

Webkinz is pretty beast. Don’t get me started on it. 🙂 Around 3 o’clock everybody ended up on my property, especially, Douglas, Kerry, Thierry, Ashley, and Marvin. I made some corny jokes to crack up Ashley a bit, it worked successfully. The day went on and drama went on until it was getting dark so I came inside. We watched this new criminal/action TV show called Person of Interest or however it’s called. But yeah, we watched it, and it so far blew my mind. I mean the action is so amazing. I suggest you watch it! 🙂 But that was pretty much everything for today. I took a shower and then went to bed.

New Mission: Get The Girl


Okay guys, I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately, I’ve been doing it here and there instead of daily posting. Which I really apologize in advance for. I’m just to busy, and in the spare time I don’t feel like posting for some reason. I don’t know, it just feels like I’m too lazy to post something simple you know? Well, anyway, I’m back and about to post to you about today.

I woke up around 8 o’clock exactly (well actually 8:02), and steamed myself some sandwich eggs. My Mom or sister, Patricia set me loafs of bread with peanut butter on top and a cup of Nesquik. It was a decent breakfast except for the loaf of peanut butter bread. Whereas, my far-neighbor, Elijah arrived at my house, he saw the loaf of bread and demanded for it. So, I gave him the bread for my benefit and his too. I wasn’t able to go outside though, even though I promised to almost all of the neighbors I was going to be outside before the bus had arrived for them. I was too busy with my own things.

Eventually, I had a Class Connect Session with my ELA teacher, Ms. Johnson at 10 o’clock AM. We reviewed on some topics we discussed yesterday at class and then learned about adjective phrases (which I’ve already known about). The class went by very quickly and next was my Math teacher’s (my homeroom) Class Connect Session at 11:30 AM. We still reviewed over some basic Math equations. Nothing new. Man, I wish we would already get started on the new things. The past two units we’re reviewing from last year (I probably do need that) and the basics of Pre-Algebra equations. I’m not so thrilled for Geometry though. 😦

After that class was over, I studied over and finished my Social Studies and Life Science. When I finished those I decided to get online Facebook. During that time, I saw Ashley online. Okay, now you may be asking: “Who the heck is Ashley?” and “Why is Ashley so important?”. Well let me explain to you guys how important Ashley is. I mentioned Ashley in the last post I put up. You’ll probably know her from there. But Ashley is important to me, because:

  • 1) I like her a lot.
  • 2) She’s my type.
  • 3) I’m trying to get her to go out with me.

Now those are your reasons. I have a mission with Kerry and Thierry to get her to be my girlfriend. And I know, I know. Your probably thinking “Andrew! You have too many girlfriends!”, “You’re only 12 years old!”, and “You should be ashamed of yourself!”. But I like her and that’s my final decision. Now while I’m on this mission I’m trying to be my best self to impress her. If she reads, then so God help me. Anyway, when I saw Ashley online, we chatted for awhile, expressed each others feelings about life and then eventually got off each other’s chat to study. I began reading my book Anne of Green Gables. I have to read it for school. Woo -sarcasm-.

Eventually when I finished school around 7:40 or 7:50 I went outside, finding no one except for Patricia, Anabelle, and their friends. I’m not going to be other on naming them here. I’ll just call them their friends. Patricia’s friend (you know what I’m talking about) wasn’t there. Woo! -no sarcasm-. I had to get Matthew because Mom hasn’t seen Matthew in like 4 hours. So, after that happened, I found a dollar in my pocket and decided to use it for my brother and I to buy two bags of Spicy Cheetos from Quick.

After that, I went inside chatted with Ashley a bit more and got totally embarrassed in front of her and then went to sleep.

Oh P.S. Flyleaf forever!! 😀 I know random.

A Simple Walk In The Park


I had a dream; a dream I cannot remember at the time but meanwhile, I’ll be talking about today. I woke up, fell back asleep again because I was too lazy to get up early, and then woke up again another hour later, went back to sleep, and repeated the whole thing over again until I decided to get out of my bed. It was around 9 o’clock when I had officially decided to wake up and get back to my life. I wasn’t allowed to eat cereal today, which is pretty odd, I had to eat oatmeal since I hadn’t eaten yesterday oatmeal when Mom hadn’t even told me about it (how was I supposed to know?). Anyway, my sister’s, Patricia and Annabelle, and my brother, Matthew, were in the leaving room, watching as Patricia was playing Super Mario Galaxy 2.

After that, Matthew started playing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on the Wii and I just used the computer. I don’t know why, but I was not in the mood for video games. Actually I haven’t really liked playing video games at all, unless it would come to Call of Duty or some other game that would suit my taste nowadays. After that, we left to the Farmer’s Market to shop for some groceries and then came back with a hand-full of groceries. Dad watched Tennis just after we arrived and Matthew and I was hanging out with King and Savino. Nicholas came along too and then so did Logan with his brother Frankie.

Once 2 o’clock hit Mom had told my sisters, my brother, and I to come inside to eat lunch. King decided to join us, Savino irritated by that decision, decided not to come. He hung out with Nicholas outside, counting the dots of a ripstick while King, my family, and I ate rice, with chunks of spicy meats and some veggies. When we finished, Savino gave his annoying ‘pissed off’ look and bothered me the whole day with a lot of “Man! You didn’t invite me!”, “That sucks” and so on. :S Afterwards, Noah joined us for a game of bounty hunter since Simon (who had come later on in the day) and I had gotten too impatient to wait for Thierry, Kerry, and Marvin to come out side. It eventually ended when Mom said we were going to the park, in which everybody decided to come except for Logan. 😦

I was sort of disappointed that Nicholas had decided to come. He was very annoying along the way. Especially when my sisters had left with their friend Nicole to see Nicole’s brother play a football game in the Shorty Howell Suwanee Park. We came walked around the park with the whole group (Simon and I stuck together throughout the walk) and eventually came near the game field. Along we saw a lot of people we knew: Chelsea, Michael, Brandon, Patricia, Nicole, Ashley (in which she was embarrassed in front of her cheer-leader mates because Nicholas had the audacity to scream out “ASHLEY!! HI!! I LOVE YOU!”), and Annabelle. It was nice. A simple walk through the park while watching a tough, intensive football game. 🙂

Afterwards, we went home and saw Logan, Frankie, Abraham, Jojo, and this other kid I can’t properly name. Mom and Dad dropped off Simon at his house, and Nicole was inside our house, sleeping over. Okay, okay. Decent day overall. Nothing depressing or saddening about today.

A Day Full of School


The whole day was being spent on school. Today we weren’t allowed to go outside because we needed to focus on our school more. So, yeah, I’ll start first with the morning. I woke up earlier then usual since on the weekdays I needed to get used to the feeling of waking up early like I used to  since we had classes starting at 9:00 AM. So, of course, I woke up early in the morning, used my computer for awhile until the neighbors came to our door the 5th time this week, asking if we could come outside. But I was waiting for this moment to arrive. Elijah, our new neighbor, was the one who had rang our doorbell and asked if I could come outside.

I came outside, only because that was before Mom told us that we weren’t allowed to go outside. Savino, our other neighbor you must be familiar with, Elijah, and Noah was there. Eventually, Simon came around and watched with us as Elijah rode down the street on a skateboard and ripstick off a ramp. He managed to land a trick with a skateboard, but failed constantly on the ripstick. Thierry and Brandon came along with Alexis, that’s when we all went up the street until the bus came and I went back inside and attended my classes. I was in ELA class with my teacher, Ginny Johnson, for about 50 mins until I ate breakfast (oatmeal) during class. I’ve actually now gotten used to the taste of oatmeal (since for the past 3 weeks we’ve been eating healthy foods).

I attended a few other classes until I did my homework. I got a k-mail (which is an e-mail in my school) telling me that I’m finally going to be getting Study Island assignments and an essay I’ll have to write down due September 7th. Oh well, the only interesting thing happening this month is the Stone Mountain outing the whole school is having for Northern Georgians. Eventually we had lunch and I passed my Social Studies Unit Assessment with a good 100% score. I finished through Literature and Vocabulary rather easily. It was until 5:46 PM that I finished all of my subjects for today. Pre-Algebra was pretty easy. 😉 We were only studying on the greater than, less than, and equals sequences. I’m just waiting to learn some new things now, since I’ve been learning reviews from last year and some basics.

I want to be challenged. Well, half of my family afterwards did Yoga for about an hour and then that was pretty much it for today. Oh P.S. we have now a new hamster, named Spike (probably I have mentioned) and found a wild parrot, that we’re currently naming Sonic until we find out if it has an owner.

Reading Exams and Rollerblades


When I woke up around 8 o’clock sharp, I knew from the start that I had missed a day of exams. Now I’ll have to take two exams one of these days. Plus, I haven’t even considered starting the Spring Scantron soon. I was able to finish writing Pluto and the Dwarf Planets on my Planet Brochure. I also found a cool picture for Pluto that actually rotates, but is still a sitting picture. Only the image moves, not the picture. I bet my teacher will give me props on that. 🙂

After I bi-passed through my Travel Portfolio, thinking about when to actually get done Spain and Italy, I decided to finish reading the second chapter and move probably move on to the next lesson. It took a great while to listen to the audio and read the book, simultaneously. But, I got pretty far in the beginning of the book. When finally I decided to do an exam, I tried first the easiest and less stressing subject. Reading.

I got 100s and 50s (mostly 100s) and some 0s. I did okay I guess. But, unfortunately, I didn’t pass through 90%. Even though Mom was happy, I still did not feel like I exceeded the standards. I just hope I don’t do the same with Math, or else I will hate myself for a while. During the time when Anabelle had still gotten in trouble with Dad and Mom for her snotty behavior with Matthew and Patricia, Anabelle’s elusiveness helped her out of the trouble. As I glared at her, I knew that one day she would really get what she deserved for bossy and snotty attitude. When I finished reading the Fellowship of the Rings for today, I went upstairs and used my laptop for awhile and decided to take a nap.

I haven’t taken proper naps in awhile. I’ve only taken proper sleeps, but naps were also a good alternative of calming the mind, other than Yoga. So after an hour of napping I decided to get along with the rest of the day, and just finish my Pre-Algebra paper I had due tomorrow. Cross your fingers for me, I want to get a good grade. Oh and I broke up with my old girlfriend two days ago, than hooked up with my 3rd best friend, Ashley, but than she broke up with me because she thought that we might not be able to see each other personally. Eventually, my old girlfriend got back together with me, and now, I am transfixed. My mother was right. We are too darn beautiful and handsome.

I went outside for Rollerblading for about 2 or 3 hours after I lost my 2nd cavity. Soon, once I lose all of my cavities I’ll be able to have clear and clean teeth. Without any metal ontop. The pain seemed really unobtrusive when it came out, because my Mom knows this trick with strings and teeth. And when the teeth is just at the right time to come out, she just plucks it out, and you think to yourself: “Where’s the pain?”. I caught up with some of our neighbors, especially Theirry, Kerry and Douglas. I didn’t expect Alexis to come around. But, as usual, she was bored and depressed outside. It didn’t really make me feel bad for her. It was kind of normal. Nicholas, another neighbor, got a tiny dog that I just adored so much.

Patricia’s new friend, Nicole’s brother also brought to the Basketball area his viola. So, when my sister tried it without him noticing, he showed us all how to play it properly. When I tried, I was horrible. I think that Douglas tried covering his ears. Don’t know for sure. Eventually, I went back inside, and Matthew lost a tooth. Without even telling me! I was sort of indignant when I heard it. But, than I accepted it, and just went to bed.

Geniune Conciliation and Hate


Today was rather boring and irritating. The message Andy Stanely (the preacher for the grownup Christians) gave us in the big church was to confess to people. When he first said about the ways of confessing, and who to do it to, I immediately thought of Patricia’s friend. Andy Stanely told us that God is not going to be happy if we just keep the confession situation between God and whoever in the world needs to confess. He’ll be happy if he sees you confessing to God, himself, and than to the person, enemy or thing you did wrong to. I was thinking in my head, no WAY am I going to forgive Patricia’s friend for what she is, and what she did. Maybe, if she stopped practicing that wrong and going with it, I would’ve done it. But, right now, she stills go by her wrong (I mean cussing, talking wrongly and telling people about sexual things) ways.

So, to this day, I hated the message. Until near the end, Andy Stanely says that if your not a Christian (such as an Agnostic, Muslim, Buddhism, Aquarius, etc), and you don’t want to forgive anybody, that’s just fine. But, if you’re willing to say this: “God, I am sorry that I have been (taking drugs, killing people, smoking, insulting people, being addicted to whatever the world knows) doing this, but I still want to do it.” Than it basically means your taking one small step towards confession. I felt a lot better about that. Eventually, when my dad and I were walking towards Patricia and Matthew, I saw this guy that looked really familiar to me. I finally realized he was the preacher who spoke about sexual immorality in our middle school part of the church. I talked to him, and shook hands with him and than continued walking with my dad.

When my dad, sister, brother, and I left (my mom was going with Anabelle to Alex’s sister, Lauren’s, birthday party), Patricia told us all about when they were in leadership room about how Patricia and this girl was talking about this particular guy and whether he was cute or not. Stupid enough, the girl blabbered out the secret to the boy my sister, Patricia, said he was cute too, and he walked up to her and said: “”I’m free.” Once dad heard that, we talked a lot about sex, and how boys like to seduce girls into having sex and about how embracing or holding hands, quote on quote ‘lovingly’, that the boy immediately wants to go towards sex. Until we got home, we noticed Logan our far away neighbor was walking around the street.

So, when we parked the car and emerged out of it, Logan ascended from the bottom street to where we were. My dad started asking questions about when his Spring Break was going to start and about what he does in his Chinese school during Saturdays. Logan was acting all normal, like Simon and Savino would. If my dad asked King or probably some other neighbors that question, they’d be all nervous. Shivering and you know what. I decided to call up Elizabeth, after a long time, she didn’t pick up, and neither did Simon when I called him too, so I immediately assumed after sitting in a chair watching the news, that they must be busy. I played on my PSP Star Wars Battlefront 2. Well, I received the game on Saturday by Simon. We’d both agree the game was so addicting.

It was age appropiate, yet entertaining for 13-19 year olds. Several times when I was playing the game, the CIS troopers would constantly throw detpacks or bombs towards the Republic (that’s the team I was on), and the Republic troopers would blow up, or just get thrown 15 feet across the wall. Sometimes I would die because of the blasted droidekas, and how they set up their damn sheild, which made it difficult taking it down with a Sniper or a rifle. So, when I turned into Obi-Wan or Yoda a couple of times, I would just use my powerful lightsaber moves to take out the sheild in 4 hits and than with one final blow, destroy the droidekas. The game kept tempting me to become on the CIS side because I loved so much to be a Magna Guard, because they were able to send recon droids, set mines, bombs, detpacks, fly and shoot cannons out of their hands.

After being bored of playing the game, I reluctantly looked for my Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix book. So far, no luck in finding it. So, I spent time outside by myself, because that’s sometimes what I would like doing whenever I’m outside. But, my mom always tells me to socialize with the neighbors even though she knows how they treat me. So, I spent some time being shot by the most annoying Eric several times reluctantly. Patricia’s friend kept staring at me. I was really annoyed. Eventually, when she tried to get close to me or ask me to go inside her house, I went inside. I screamed at my pillow maraciously. I’m thinking in my mind, why does Patricia’s friend have to be around to make my life hell?

Eventually, we watched the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie through ABC family. We had already watched the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie, so we’re ahead. Near the end of the movie, we (meaning the family) video chatted with our friends all the way in Florida. Turns out, we’re going to stay in Florida for Spring Break. I realized that Simon, Logan and I had already planned to stay over at Simon’s house during Spring Break. Though, I rather be at the ocean, marine and ground life and in the pools. I miss Florida. Alexandra and I showed each other through the video chat our Harry Potter books. Unfortunately, my 5th Harry Potter book was missing, and I didn’t have the Half-Blood Prince. But, Alexandra had all of it. So, the day ended eventually like that. We were sent home to bed, and I could hardly sleep.

Moodiness Takes Over


I was so moody today. Oh my God, I didn’t even feel like telling you guys that I was this moody.  That’s really how moody I’ve gotten. But, I’ll explain and tell you guys about it, becuase this is where I write down my feelings.

Well, in the beginning of the morning, when my dad woke me up for CCS starting soon, I decided to listen to this artist I haven’t heard about called Avril Lavigne. I think Sammy put a couple of songs of her. Besides that, I hardly know the girl. I listened to her song, “what the hell!” and well, I’m not interested. Plus, the mood didn’t help because I had to stay up all night because I started to hear scratching noises on my closet door and how it would slightly open. So, Avril Lavigne, thanks a lot for helping me! (BTW, if you didn’t get it, I was being sarcastic) So, when I started Language Arts CCS (on Wednesdays there aren’t any ALP Language Arts CCS), I had to wait for about 15 minutes for the teacher to handle her 7 year old child.

It was a bit annoying for Sabourah, Jacob and I. Though, we just went with it. Nicci Peters, our Language Arts teacher, was more giving us assingments than teaching. People in team J, had to write a Persuasive Essay. People in team I, had to write a Research Report. People in team G, had to make a slideshow of pictures for a presentation next week. My team, team H, had to write an essay on anything we wanted. We had to write short ones during class, and take notes from the links the teacher gave us. I think the class took 45 to 50 minutes. Usually it would take 35 or 40 minutes. But, it was a bit longer because of all the students in the class studying. Quickly when I finished my first 3 paragraphs on Emperor Penguins, I got out of that CCS and moved into Science CCS.

Chat was sort of depressing, my girlfriend and I were hardly talking because we were busy with things, and plus my friend Mary was getting all street talkin’ in the chat box. Also, her name with a heart at the end seemed to have interested a student called Cara and somebody else called Makayla. They did the same, which sickened me. I wonder when JB is going to pop up into our school and woo all the girls. Science was also very dull. Dr. Brad Johnson had a sort of cold, if I’m right, and he would keep moaning on the microphone or would have to turn it off so he could cough and than turn it back on. I didn’t really get what we were learning in Science class. I skipped both Social Studies and Math CCS. Tomorrow I’ll probably do both of those. I don’t know yet.

Skipping both of those classes made me feel moody. So, I just did the last assignment on Study Island, and passed it. I still had the essay to finish due tomorrow. So, it took me about ti’ll 3:50 PM to finish it. I had to investigate (for a part of Earth Science) an experiement and than write a procedure. When I was having difficulty picking an experiement, the song “What the hell!” by Avril Lavigne kept popping in my head. It was really annoying at the time. So, I listened to Blessthefall and Asking Alexandra. I was the least estatic when I had to do allover again Probability in odds today. Plus, the Social Studies lesson we learned was pretty boring. So, when I finished everything, and than finished getting into an argument with Matthew about showingoff, I went outside.

Spent some time with the neighbors and the new neighbor Jeremiah. When I made my own base with my family and Jeremiah, it became complete chaos. Patricia’s friend was making fun of people, constantly slapping, threatened to hurt someone with a pocket knife and also said Matthew sucked dick. Well, I was pissed off. I eventually outspoken Savino until he blacked out. Eventually we figured that Jeremiah was bi-polar. His mood expression changed so quickly. Patricia’s friend was trying to tell him to make him feel better that she wasn’t really going to stab him. When I told her about how she said you suck dick to Matthew she said no I didn’t, she said “I don’t suck dick!”. What a prick and a liar. Jeremiah told Patricia’s friend to go away. But, she just wouldn’t.

And to make things better, she wanted to tell all of us, how she had a bad life. WTF?! That’s all I can say. I went home after the incident, and watched this depressing movie, and I got so moody throughout American Idol, and than had stomach pain, so I had to drink Vinegar. I went to bed after that. Not such an interesting day.
