A Positive Start to the Week!


Hey guys. Andrew here! Bringing you a post like I’d promise I do. But before I begin about my day, I have to give a quick shout-out to Paige! Apparently she read one of my posts and is now a bit angry at me and has asked me not to mention her. The only logical thing to do at this point is shout her out and give her more attention. Your welcome! All will be explained later in the post. But anyway, here’s a song I’ve been recently listening to:

Enjoy and let’s start the post! (I have music playing the background right now)

Okay, so the day started out as it usually has. I wake up and get dressed. Only that I woke up with a churning feeling in my stomach. Reason why: I was to be at a conference today, but I did not know what time to be there and WHERE to be in the first place. I had been meditating on the idea for awhile, which resulted in a lot of painful, unnecessary stress. Now, though, I can’t avoid it. I’ll have to face it. I told my Mom and Dad about it. Later on the in the morning, once Matthew and Anabelle had already left to their buses, my Dad turned out to have written a parent note on paper for me to give my homeroom teacher directly. I decided to go with the flow with it and try not to over-stress about it. Once I had my clothes on, I sat in the living room with another idea to stress about: I was nervous about going to school. Last week was horrid. Everybody seemed to be against me. Just a few of my friends seemed normal to me. Otherwise it was horrible. A boy named Connor, Brian’s friend, was making fun of me, and sort of bullying me. God, now I hope Paige does not read this because she’ll spill my feelings. 😛

So yeah. I hoped for a good day today, but I still felt nervous. Just before the bus had entered in our neighborhood, I told  my Mom about how I was feeling. She reassured me with the same statement I had previously stated the first time I went to school. I promised I was going to so called “be normal and do my best”, which was true. Still unconvinced, I asked my Mom to pray for me. Then I left to the bus. As I was waiting for the bus, I met up with Erick, my sister, and another girl. Now at this point I was thinking “I don’t want to go to school!”. Unfortunately that was unavoidable and inevitable that I was to enter the bus, unless I wanted to make a big fool of myself and just run home crying like the sissy I was. No. I’ll just go. So I went on the bus. Thankfully, nobody was sitting in my seat. I sat in my seat, thankful. I decided to talk with Marquel (I think that’s how you spell it) next to me and eventually, during the conversation, I asked him to pray for me, as well, for my day. Then, once we were driving into the bus lot near the 8th grader entrance, Jayduh called me randomly and asked how I was doing out loud, which of course got most of the attention in the bus. I answered with “I’m good.” Though I felt too nerdy saying that. I wanted to add like “I’m pretty sh*t” or .. something else! But oh well, that let them to leave me alone and think about what just happened.

Then I entered the school, after the buses stopped, and went to homeroom. Once I entered the “C” wing, I went to go get myself some breakfast and decided to get more than just orange juice. I picked up a pack of apples and then was forced to get an entre. So I picked up a sausage biscuit. Then as I went to homeroom I was stopped by Paige. This now leads to what I was talking about in the beginning. So as I went to homeroom, Paige walked up to me, smiling as usual and a little goofy (sorry, that’s just how you look xD), and told me about how I wrote a post about how I thought she wanted me to ask her out or be her boyfriend. She told me, while laughing still, that that wasn’t the case. At first, I was surprised. I literally asked “how .. what?” Her friend was next to her and said they both had read my blog. Then I entered homeroom once I got the message. After I put down my lunch on the table and got my textbook, I actually thought about it. A few of my friends actually read my blog. I mean that’s how Jessica broke up with me. Haven’t actually explained that I went out with Jessica because there are people who read my posts that will contact my Mom once heard of. But yeah, she broke up with me because she read my blog and found out about my feelings towards her and I guess really figured who I was as a person. I felt weak and quite confused. I kind of feel like my blog is a private place for people, outside of my life, to enjoy and read. Not my friends. But then again a blog is a blog. It’s public for a purpose. I talked about this with my neighboring chair friend, Hayden. He took it in with a nod and then continued his studying and contemplating. I ate my food and decided to study to on work.

Once homeroom was over we were quickly notified that we were having Early Release. Basically leaving school pretty early. The schedule was put on the board. Then we transitioned to Georgia Studies, in which we had to do a review for “New South”. A lot of things I was quite clueless about, to say the least, but I knew about more than a half of it. So I am quite OKAY with it if I had to say. Once that was done we transitioned to our next period, Language Arts. At least for me. We did a little project classwork with a couple of the terms we were going to be needing such as: “similes and metaphors, etc”. Once the rough draft was done, we went to lunch. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a bad lunch, but it wasn’t. I enjoyed sitting next to Chris and Rob and a bunch of other people. Unfortunately, though, I sat directly in front of Brianna. Gosh why do we have to be so close together. -.- Anyway, I threw an aluminum foil crumpled up into a ball, when he threw it across my table, into his face. Which stirred a loud amount of laughs across the table, especially and surprisingly from Brianna. I also talked with Chris and we loads of fun. What was also surprising was Mike, a person who usually acted weird around me and did not like me, as it seemed, was listening intently on my conversations and was nice. I, altogether, had a great time. Once we came back from lunch, we finished up our rough drafts of the classwork project and added a little bit of design and color. Then we went back to our homeroom class to sign us out. Surprisingly we were sent out pretty quick. I almost had actually mistaken me going to 2nd connections when I was supposed to be going to 1st connection for today and then 2nd connection tomorrow. Almost learned that the hard way. Lol.

P.E. went pretty awesome. I don’t want to brag or anything, but it was awesome. We had a test of the Pacer. A sort of cardio exercise. It involved a group of people running from one wall on the other side of the gym to the other wall on the other side of the gym before a beep sounded. If the beep sounded and you hadn’t touched the wall in time you were out. Though it was also extremely hard because I have asthma (just learned I did about two weeks ago o.o) and plus you take about 2 second breaks and then run again which really requires patience and stability. Two things I don’t have. Though, this time, I wanted to do good and impress. Last time on the Pacer I got a 37 lap run. Our class teacher, Mrs. Turner, notified that we had to do 5 more in order to make a 100% grade for the test. So I was determined, yet anxious. I did not want to fail. Luckily, when we started I paced myself (Ey, get it! PACEr and PACE. No? Forget you! xD) and did the customary breathing my Mom had taught me to do when I was running. It helped a lot, but also crept a lot of people out, making them ask why I was breathing like this. In return I said I had asthma. That shut them up for awhile. What surprised me, though, was that I made the max: 40. We had to stop at 40. But what about the 100%? I thought. Oh well, I made it to the max, I’m happy. I came to the wall where everybody, who failed to go farther or who were waiting, sat. Then we went to the rooms to dress out after we put in our score for the test. Then we left the room and I sat in my seats waiting for the bus call. Then we left to our buses afterwards. The bus was then awesome. I had to sit, unfortunately and fortunately, with Eladia. The unfortunate part was that Brian –another one, who was in sixth grade– sat in my seat and I had to move and almost bring attention to myself. The fortunate part was that I enjoyed sitting down and talking with Eladia. Especially with the thought in my mind that she had a crush on me. 😛

Then a whole war between Matt — a 7th grader who sat in the seats in front Eladia and I — and Jayduh, along with all the girls in the back backing her up. It was funny and fun. They had done it back in the morning, though it wasn’t as brutally funny and plus I was talking with Marquel the whole time. Then when most of the people had left, it was just the group of us again. I decided not to move from my seat, this time, and let them do their thing, and speak from all the way where I was. It didn’t bring so much attention to Adrian as he would usually call me gay and I would respond back with a coolly attitude and then we would make fun of each other. Sometimes we would tussle a little bit. xD

We did this for about the whole time until we went back to our neighborhoods and I walked with Sarah on the way. We usually talked on our way and I liked talking with her. I complained to her about Connor’s problem of bullying, sort of, because Connor sincerely looked up to Sarah and I just felt like telling her. She told me she would handle it. Then after that sentence was taken in, I felt like she was my Mom. Haha. I don’t even know. Lol. Then we went into our houses. I gave all the good news to my parents then, had my dinner, and then went to Brian’s house. Another Brian this time. One who is in my grade but is not the short Hobbit one. I went to do the project with him and his mother helped us out a little bit as well. We did the project (an egg dropped without cracking) with Styrofoam and a plastic cup enclosed around. First time we tried it did NOT crack. Success. Brian even threw it across the field and it STILL did not crack. We were successful. Then, just before we were about to involve some engineering into the project, Brian reminded me that we were not allowed to have Colloids involved in our project, as previously mentioned by our Science teacher, Mr. Dyches. We looked up online and turns out Styrofoam was a colloid. Dang it. We looked up online and thought for almost an hour for methods to be successful. We found an idea to add cereal to help reduce the impact, involving Rice Krispies and plastic bags. It seemed successful, though we called it a day today. It was already becoming dark outside. I walked home and then told my Mom of what happened at the house and then she told me that when she went to the conference with the teachers (of forgot, I had the conference at lunch, but then my parents took their own conference with the teachers) and was notified by the Science teacher that he wanted our engineering to be sophisticated and include a lot of springs and elasticity. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DO THAT?! Ugh. I’ll figure it out some other time. Anyway, now everything has led up to now. I have to study a little bit for homework and do Bible Time, so bye!

Enjoy your time wherever you are and bye!

Donations, Girls, School, Lunch … AWESOME DAY!


Hey guys! Andrew here! As I promised from the last post, I said that I was going to present to you a new song or video I would like you to see. This video is actually not a song. Sort of. It’s a funny video with music included. It is called the Harlem Shake. A viral video that has stretched across Youtube and has become almost as huge as the shuffle from Party Rock Anthem. I have given you two of my favorite versions of the Harlem Shake. Boom!

The second one must require a Youtube account where you are 18+ or older. Unfortunately for youngsters, though I got to see it before it was flagged for 18+ or up. 🙂

Okay now to the post!

A lot of crazy and great things happened today. To summarize it I don’t understand how, but I’ll try. Woke up, went to school … actually wait a minute. I did not actually go to the school by bus. I had to wake up early because I had to arrive at the school early to check my recent Common Assessment test I had taken and gotten 80%. Plus I could earn a couple of wings (special certificate prizes from our school) by helping the teachers! I always enjoyed being earlier than others. Not for competition purposes, but I like the school when it is not as busy. Anyway, I had to wake up early. Around 7 o’clock AM in the morning I believe. Then we left around 8 o’clock AM in the morning — where usually I left to school around 8:40-8:50 — and my Mom drove me to school! It was always awkward when she dropped me off at the car riders drop off because there were always SO many people on the bleachers where they sat waiting for classes to start and they would stare at everyone who would enter to entertain their bored minds. This time, I tried to act it a little cool, and act like I was paying attention to the ground or talking to my sister and not so much scanning the crowd. Then, when I got to the front of the room, where the usual security man sat in his chair typing on his computer, I dropped my backpack, took out my agenda, and then left the room like I didn’t care. I mean it wasn’t against anything and I assumed the security man was okay with it because he took a quick look at me and then looked back down. I went to my homeroom class through the building as I went up the 2 staircases up into the second level of the school and went to the “C” wing. Surprisingly it was sincerely empty. No one was in the hall. Better for me so I wouldn’t have to pass anybody and act awkward.

I went to my homeroom teacher, Mrs. Flowers, and got my Agenda signed, realizing also Cameron, a dark-skinned boy, was sitting in Mr. Iverson’s room. I had never seen him in this class. I had only seen him in Health. I gave him a quick “hi” and then went back with a signed agenda to pick up my stuff. Once I brought my stuff into homeroom class I waited around the building. Nothing much to do. I was specifically waiting for Mrs. Harris’s arrival. It took about 30 minutes for her to arrive. Then I picked up the test answers and form-sheets I needed, thanked her, and then made my way. I also helped my Math teacher out with seating just for randoms, then helped Mr. Dyches, my Science teacher, boost a rolling cart full of candies and sodas. I was already full from the breakfast I had back at the house and from the school, so I did not eye at it so thirstily or hungrily. Once that had come to past, the school bell rang which sounded the arrival of the school buses and everyone arrived in classes.

Georgia Studies was quite boring. We just went over our given electives that we had to choose for High School. We barely got to learn anything. Language Arts we took a quick review on The Giver. Math we went over what we learned yesterday about systems and ordered pairs with graphs. It was all relatively easy. Lunch was awesome, though. I had 3 waffles (was supposed to be 2 but I stole one from another plate :mrgreen:) and 3 huge chicken strips with syrup. Cinnamon apples sliced in pieces. And broccoli. Pretty unhealthy, but I wanted something good today! Lunch was also different because as I sat with the girls I was sitting on the other side of the table. I got to see more of the people I usually talked to, which was a lot more preferable. We had fun, and lots of things happened. Though I cannot stress over all details. I got syrup allover my pants, which made me look like I peed in my pants. I gave Courtney and Lucy a hug as they passed by, which caused a ray of questions from the girls around the table, asking if I was going out with either one of them. I got to talk with Mario, and old friend from last Summer. Talked with Avelyn and his friend. Gave Samantha’s boyfriend a pedophile face, which made me chuckle and laugh. A lot more things from now in just one lunch. Biggest thing of all: BRIANA WAS NOT THERE. Woop! Sorry. 🙂

Once we returned from Math class we did our homework and I managed to finish the last problem as we were told to pack up our stuff. Science class was just as fun as Lunch, except with more less events. I earned a Mountain Dew and got to pass it around to others in the class who earned 85% or above in the classes. I got my friend Brian and Nathan to copy over my answers as I was doing vocabulary homework. Leondre, a girl who had never talked with me but hated me with a  passion, actually talked to me while smiling actually and asked me to sneak a soda for her. As I sneaked it she gave me her thanks and laughed. It was a good time overall. We also got to go outside for Science for a little science experiment demonstration thingy. Lol. I stood next to my friend Gizelle (the person who hooked me up with Jessica) and her friend. Gosh, can’t remember her name. xD But anyway as I stood next to her, they started gossiping with me and asked if I wanted to ask Mackenzie to be my girlfriend. She’s pretty. Nice. I love her personality. Complete me. But I don’t want to get into another relationship after I was already in one. I like being single. So I told them “no” and “no” constantly. That continued for until we had to go back into the school building and go to our homerooms. Dropping off my Math book, I waited in line as usual and then left to my connections. P.E. was quite fun actually. I got ACTUAL donations from my friend Haven. Good guy. He gave me an actual $5 dollar. Rare. I know. But he gave it to me for donation of saving for my laptop. Avelyn promised me he was going to give me $20 and then a few of my other friends promised they would give me money. So it’s good so far. Mrs. Turner’s group had to play indoor soccer while the other class got to play outdoor sports or something. It was fun actually. I earned 3 goals for our team, which was nice!

Health was also pretty good. We did bellringers, which is something I dearly dread. Then we went on about learning hormones, private parts of the human body, how the reproductive system worked, and a little about circumcision. I’m a little bit scared now because they say UN circumcised people have a bigger chance of receiving diseases and STDs. Oh God help me! D: During Health class, though, I told Lucy how the girls thought she was my girlfriend after the hug and made a joke saying “Thank you”. She laughed, embarrassed. And then asked what I told them. I said no, of course. But then she said “would it be bad if you were my boyfriend?” and I answered that embarrassed and red cheeks. Trying to find words then she said “I wouldn’t think it would be bad”. At first I laughed at the sentence, but when the sentence actually sunk into my brain I felt completely flattered. 2 girls I could have a possible chance becoming my girlfriend. Including Paige from homeroom who has given me so many hints to ask her out, though I don’t find her quite interesting. Sorry. Then we left Health class afterwards and went to our buses as I talked casually to Mackenzie. We cussed as usual. Talking like boys. And her, ranting about how she did not need to know a single f#ck about private parts and how the body works inside us. Agreeing somewhat, I laughed. Then we separated our ways to the buses.

It was fun in the bus. I got to talk with another girl that liked me called Eladia. She gave me a Valentines chocolate for Valentines which was really sweet then her friend explained to me that she had a crush on me. So yeah. I’ve got the chicks it appears to be. Lol. Anyway, I went home, ate food, gave my progress report I received from Science and got my Dad to sign it. Then my Dad and I went over the common assessment test and now I feel like it is a LOT more clearer to me. Ready for the next one! Then I studied for about an hour and went on the computer for a few until Mom called us for Bible Time and we read the Bible. On an iPad.

Once that was done and we prayed we came to sleep. And now this has all led up to here. As I am writing to you. Hopefully you enjoyed this post! And have a great time wherever you are! Bye!
