Good Grade Start


Hey guys, Andrew here! Bringing you a new post. Not feeling in the exact particular mood for this, but I feel like I must post to you guys even though I might not feel the single nerve to do so. So, let’s skip to the part where I walk to the bus. Funny things start from there.

So just when I saw the bus coming, in the morning, after I got all my clothes together, my sister leaves, all prepared and walks casually to the bus. I’m about to do the same thing when suddenly my mom notices that I am sagging a little bit (which was by accident, I am NOT a sagger [if that’s even a word]) and starts yelling at me for not picking up a belt. I told her several times I did not need a belt at this time, especially when the bus had just entered the neighborhood. She insisted though and told me not to move. Grunting, displeased, I waited reluctantly. It took about a full minute for my mom to walk upstairs and pick up my belt which I could do in the matter of 5 seconds. Once she gave it to me, I bolted outside. No worries. But then my mom yelled out from the house:

“PUT ON THE BELT NOW!” 

So holding my backpack rather awkwardly and then trying to put on a belt was quite interesting for me. I was able to manage eventually, but I had to lower my backpack. After I had put on the belt like my mom told me to, I ran to our usual bus-stop and greeted Joanna, her friend (don’t remember her name), and Erick. It was awkward and I did not feel like talking, so we didn’t really talk. Once the bus came we all entered and we drove to school. Funny thing was that Bailey, Jayduh, and Lauren in the back of the bus were pretty quiet during the whole drive. They’re usually the loud ones in the back making trouble of all sorts.

Once we got to the school I quickly entered my classroom, knowing I was late and did not have time. I did take a few seconds to pick up a simple orange juice for breakfast. Though I seriously need to get a bagel or something else. Homeroom class started pretty quick in progression. Once homeroom was over, we transitioned from Homeroom to Georgia Studies and continued our notes on learning the “NEW SOUTH”. I got to announce some ideas in the notes when Mr. Iverson (the Georgia Studies teacher) asked for any helpful answer or tips in the questions that were given. It was a pretty simple class all in all. Though there were some funny moments.

Next class, Language Arts with Mrs. Harris, was pretty simple too. We continued reading after we got 10 minutes to work on our Review that we were assigned last week on Friday. Luckily, though, I finished mines on the day and turned it in so I wouldn’t have to procrastinate the whole weekend until the last day. I hate doing that… Then we read “The Giver” and trust me, it is a good book. Progressively the plot thickens. Lol. After Language Arts, I moved to Math class in which we took a lot more notes than homework. I finished my homework, though, immediately on task on the day so I wouldn’t have to do anything at home.  During lunch, though, I decided to sit next to my friend Andrew and Manuel. We had fun and as a result one of their friends (who I can’t remember his name) who sat next to me, had 2 of his chocolate milks drop on the table. We eventually had to have a few teachers come and help us clean it up. Though it was hilarious. I walked with Vanessa as usual back to the Math class. Though she asked me a favor this time. She gave me a note that her boyfriend, Zach (we were good friends as well), wrote her or it seems that he did that crept the living sh*t out of Vanessa. It said “I want to r*pe you.” She asked me to hide her behind me (which was easy because she was small) as we passed by Zach through lunch, which was easy until after I gave my hug to Jessica. Her boyfriend immediately realized what had just happened by the time we were almost at the doors. He called for her to come, but she didn’t and it was awkward. I felt like I was tearing a relationship. 😦

Then Science class came and it was disruptive as usual and there were the same usual, annoying people. Eventually it got SO annoying that I moved from my seat to the side of the classroom where I could hear my teacher, Mr. Dyches. I got a good grade as we read throughout the hand-out sheet we worked on, but it did also open my eyes to answers I thought would be normally right to actual wrong answers. Well I guess we can live by the quote: “You learn something new, everyday.” Anyway, once Science class ended and I moved to homeroom to wait for our homeroom teacher Mrs. Flowers to dismiss us, I decided to put my Math book away, since I had no need for it. Surprisingly, my backpack was 5X lighter without the Math book and I freely roamed wherever I went. The situation with Zach and Vanessa was solved because Zach explained that one of his friends wrote on it, which solved the situation easily.

I then moved to P.E. and we started practicing on Soccer. YES. My sport. Tomorrow I’m assuming we’re doing a Soccer game. I’m pumped! Afterwards I went to Health class. The most near difficult and straining class I had to take in the school besides Science. We watched a little movie during the class after we read some information on drugs. For the unit in Health we are learning we are learning about drugs and basically defects and information about them. Including diseases from FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) and Cirrholis, etc. Once Health was over and we were dismissed to our buses I left to my bus while talking to my friend Mackenzie. Afterwards I finally arrived on my bus and had a balling time as usual near the end. Then I arrived home and also brought a progress report my Health teacher gave me. I had a 94%, which is good, but quite disappointing for a subject like Health. I mean it’s not really that hard, but it is! It’s hard to explain! But I gave it to my parents and they signed it. The day went on as normal as it could be until now where I am writing to you.

There were a lot of events involved in today, but I’m trying to go very broadly over my days so I won’t have to write so much, because I know that you guys don’t enjoy it when I write too much. Or do you? I’m going to have to write about a poll decision. Anyway, enjoy your time wherever you are, bye! 🙂

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.

Well This Is Driving Me Nuts!!!


July 27, 2010
Well, I’m sorry I’m publishing so late. I was hanging out at Walmart with my parents and Michael and Daniel. But, you get me? Anyways, as late as I could think, I knew once I woke up Michael, Daniel and I was going to get kicked out of the house as quick as possible. But, that didn’t matter to me. I could still keep up the hours I had right NOW. But, lets get that out of the way. Once I woke up I read Percy Jackson the Titan’s Curse. I guess since I had just a temporary time of reading I only was able to read 5 pages. At max I guess 13 pages. But, I tried to make this promise to myself to read at LEAST 50 pages every day so I could finish the book in a matter of days. But, when I was just in the middle of the part when Thalia (daughter of Zeus), Grover (some kind of satyr) and this group called the hunters (that serve the goddess Artemis) on this quest instead of Percy, Daniel broke into the room and tried to read the room to see if everything was okay. Finally, he left the room and then I grumbled this in my head: “Damn… I’d thought he never leave”. Lol. Okay, maybe I was too cruel but that’s what was going through my mind.

Anyways, in a matter of minutes we had to eat breakfast. I had cookie crisp since nothing else was interesting besides some cheerios and stuff. I tried to conserve as much as possible so maybe Michael or Daniel needed some when I wasn’t around. Afterwards, we went upstairs in the bonus room to play some video games. I was though surprised we weren’t leaving early. So, I happily played Tony Hawk Skateboarding Project 9. Though, I thought basketball was a LOT better even though I played it since yesterday (two days ago). Anyways, from time to time Michael’s dad would constantly ask to challenge any of us at Skateboarding. Michael was always singled out last. Too bad. Then, Michael’s dad asked to challenge me on Basketball. Which was very awkward for me but still cool. See I use the Hornets ALL the time when I play basketball. Then, the rest of Michael’s family would choose the Lakers. So, we were COMPLETE enemies ti’ll then in basketball. Unfortunately, Michael’s dad beat me. See I can beat Daniel and Michael anytime on basketball but their dad was too impossible. So, we were down with these scores. Mine was: I think 61 or 63 dunks. Then, his dad had 89 goals exactly. I was ticked off but cool with it. After that, we had to leave to my house.

The thing that was surprising was the fact Daniel wasn’t overdoing his jokes. But, he was playing video games non-stop. I just couldn’t take it. Though, he was kind of helping me on my Poptropica account. Which was okay, but, then my mom and dad gave us the note after dinner we had to go upstairs. Well, dinner was okay even though we only had cucumbers, green pepper and dumplings. Than, we went upstairs. I did not know what was going on downstairs, but I tried to ignore that feeling of curiosity. Unfortunately, Michael and Daniel were fighting AGAIN. I tried to work thins out. So, I did a therapy session with Daniel. Though, I can’t tell you what we were discussing. Too private. Unluckily, I noticed my mom and dad was watching Lie to Me. But, then we went to sleep. Ugh!
