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!

I Have The Feeling My Emotion Are Being Played


Today was a normal day. Nothing really new happened. I worked on Literature for a matter of 7 minutes, and then moved on to my GUM Unit Assessment test. I actually got nervous doing it. So, I went onto Science. Which took only like 32 minutes, oddly. I moved on to Social Studies and did two lessons to go back on track with it, because my computer got delayed for some reason, so I couldn’t work on Social Studies. I just wonder how I’m going to do when I have to finish my 3 lessons, because I couldn’t do a lesson, and then I missed a lesson. So I was in a tight position.

Once my mom got bored and wasn’t busy, I went to her and asked her to help me with Math. Unfortunately, we had to go to the store to get a compass. For some reason I hardly care what my mom’s picking out of the store. So, when we got back home, I was surprised what I got: a metal compass, with a needle, plus a pencil graphite stuck to the end, and another old compass regular people would use, plus, a weird ruler that had on top of it a mini protractor. Way to go think inventors. 😀 I did my Geometry lesson, and it turned awkward, than thrilling, than boring, then exciting, then irritating. I couldn’t make a final decision toward the lesson. But, at the end I overcame it and I actually became to like Geometry very much.

It’s like Math was playing my emotions. I don’t get it. Anyways, next lesson was from another unit. The unit was more about reviewing what we remember from last year’s math. Today I had to work on Fractions and Multiples. Now, besides the fact that it’s easy, it’s really helpful to go on a review, because when I heard the word factors, I freaked because I thought I had to go into a hell of a lot of fractions. I hate fractions, that’s the bottom line. I had to do just ONE MORE lesson. I ahd to study on Square Roots and Prime Numbers. Man, how easy can Math get. If it was hard, anyways, I would know that for a fact I had to like it somehow, because I wanted to become an electrical engineer (if you check my wishlist.). So yeah, no turning back.

The rest of the day got boring so it came to a boring pause… and then went again. I worked on my portfolio for a few minutes to study. And then went to sleep.

School’s Corrupting My Daily Schedule/Enjoyment


Well, yeah, I have been realizing getting involved with a lot of fights recently with Nayyir, and I’m getting pretty tired of it. Sometimes, and I’m ONLY saying sometimes, a part in my head regrets knowing Nayyir. Well, I try ignoring that more often. Anyways, today you won’t believe what happened. It was all so… I don’t, uncharacteristically? Today I got in Science class 3 minutes early, which was really bad, because then I would’ve lost my opportunity to chat so much with Nayyir, Elizabeth (if she ever entered around the 9), and “the unknown girl”. Damn. Someday, I’m going to have to say her name once. Anyways, my teacher, Dr. Brad Johnson (Dr. Johnson) was acting as usual. Feeling at the same time weird, yet enthusiastic. He finally at the end of class chat for about 7 to 6 minutes tops (like he usually does 🙂 )

“the unknown girl” chatted with me for awhile, so we chatted for about all our time. Finally I had to move on to Social Studies, unfortunately, I came 2 minutes late. Luckily, the room didn’t lock, because our strict, Social Studies teacher says that whenever kids come into the class late, she doesn’t want to have to review them to make sure they stay on track. So, she decides to lock classes. The most uncharacteristically she did today was rude. When I was raising my hand in a crowd of about 40 to 50 people (because there was about 200 kids in the class), I came to a point where I was around the 5th spot, and she removed my hand. Seriously? She fucking put my hand down? I got so pissed I started asking her if she MEANT TO put my hand down, unfortunately, she ignored me. I’m just happy the class is switching teachers, because the only teacher I suppose to like is my Science teacher.

My Math teacher, Ms. Harper, is sassy. My Social Studies teacher, Adrienne Rhoads (she prefers the class to call her that), was rude, and well… my English teacher Ms. Montgomery, no offense Nayyir, is both. It’s like I hate all my teachers. What the hell is wrong with me? I finished the class easily, because all we studied on, were these 4 circles in different sizes that represents the federal’s or president/government’s power. Even some 6th graders spelled federal wrong. Lol. When I continued with my work on my plan, I finished both, my reading lesson, and my GUM Unit review. Wonder how my results are going to turn out. 😀 Afterwards, I went on to Math, and guess what? The class was locked. I opened my eyes in amazement. I tried it twice and it didn’t work. I had to wait for about 21 minutes for it to lock open. So, yeah, I was 21 minutes late. Damn me.

Soon after that, I worked on my portfolio more. Remember how I said I finished 1 1/2 paragraphs? Well, I finally finished the rest of my second paragraph, and did another full paragraph. I’m still wondering how I’m going to finish when I need to write 5 paragraphs down, edit them, and then type my final draft down due October 25th. See, I can do it. But, this was really a late time to do it. So, I hope I can finish the rest tomorrow. I took about an hour and a half to finish paragraphing. I had a test on Reading, and turns out the lesson cheated on me, so I failed. I got angry for a few moments, then cooled, and had some Ginger Ale. Lol. I’m supposed to finish 5 tests by October 25th as well. WOW, torture, torture, torture. I can’t remember the rest, oh yeah, my school part got corrupted so I couldn’t finish Social Studies and Math in time. Damn, I’m in a tough position.

Salute! Salute! To Ya’ll


I thank you all so much for being a big support to my blog. Today I got about 9 comments today, so thank you all for being a big support. I can’t go into names because it’ll pack my post. Anyways, today I woke up with a perfect head, which is weird, because my brain’s usually fine. But, at the moment it felt like my brain just got cleaned and now it’s stress-free. Don’t ask me how that happened. I went downstairs, hoping for some cereal because yesterday my mom got us 1 ft doughnut, which seemed like enough, but it wasn’t. I hadn’t had cereal for 3 days. Don’t you know how torturing that is? I had to wait for mom to drop dad off work and then bring us to go shopping with her and get cereal. When we finally got back home we bought Cocoa Dyno Bites, Flaked something and some Doritos. Now were talking. When we finally had our great breakfast I strolled straight to the computer and started school. Luckily, I only had to start elluminate classes at 9.

When, I started our Math class was learning and reviewing how to add, subtract and multiply with Fractions (this event took place around 11, I skipped the 9 and 10 for the 12 and 1). It was pretty easy I have to say. I thought I was the only one getting it besides the person right next to me and some other kids way below the class. Finally, when I start the 12 o’ clock elluminate for Science, I got a hearty welcome from my Science teacher (and homeroom teacher as well), Erin Lauen. I like calling her more by that name because it works better then Ms. Lauen. So, when the session started I was hoping Ms. Lauen to give us the chat. Unfortunately, there was a default with my chat screen and I appeared to have missed the chat chance. The other thing that sucked was the fact that Elizabeth wasn’t around.

Luckily, though Nayyir was by my side as always. We hadn’t known each other in the fifth grade until we somehow got tables (when we were clearly in a different class rooms [mines was Ms. Riley and Nayyir’s was Ms. Sparks]) together in the CRCT. Now, that the school permits any student into one class for each subject we can always see each other except for Advanced Math class. The only weird thing is how we end up near each other. Oh well, when we started we were reviewing about metamorphic rocks, sedimentary rocks and igneous rocks and how they change and bla-bla-bla. It eventually got boring, so I felt the need to exit the class, but you can’t bail out of a class. So, I had to stay in there for about an hour or so, which is more then our usual schedule. When I was done, I went through the rest of the subjects, turns out I have a lab test tomorrow. Really reassuring Science. *sighing* When I had to take the Social Studies lesson it was all a blur.

So, I went through Study Island and went through the rest of the school. I finally got done at the counting of 3:12 pm. My mom celebrated by watching Glee and giving us some cookies. I have to say Glee is my second favorite ‘to watch on TV’ show, but this episode didn’t really surprise me. Britney Spears. Are you serious. That’s that last thing I want to end up hearing from Glee. I even thought Brittaney was being to much of murmuring show-off. When we came to pick up dad it was all a blur, and then I fell asleep. See ya’ll tomorrow.

I’ve Been Valuable My Whole Life And I Never Knew


Well, today was a buzz kill. I was so sleepy today. It felt like waking up to go to college. Today my dad’s starting his new job and our mom has to stay with us and study for the whole time. Now, I’m okay with having mom around during school on Math, but I’m not sure about Reading and Composition. She’s more into the unusual-regular human likes. Anyways, I woke up, brushed my teeth and forgot to wash my face. When I was in the middle of strolling through my school work I found lots of optionals in my category. Wow, now I have a lot of lessons to skip. Instead of skipping, my sister (Patricia) told me dad (who was away now) usually suggests that we complete the optionals and then do the lesson. Well, now that’s going to be interesting. If I’m supposed to deal with like 10 subjects today (which is overdo what we’re supposed to do) I rather blow up and get sent to Japan. Lol.

When I was done with Vocabulary and Social Studies I was already pumped. I started turning into my determined face and went through all of my subjects. Mom was taking care of the chores. So, when I was already half way done I was sweating through my pits and around my pupils, which looks as if I’m trying to shed skin. Lol. . When I was done with school, partially, my mom decided to help me with Math a little bit. Finally. We had to study on Multiplying Decimals which studying with my mom made it SO easy. I had to practice on like 39 problems on a sheet of paper, but I was doing fine.

When I started working on the assessment I was already overwhelmed. I had to help Matthew AGAIN with reading The Magic Tree House. The only different was the fact that he was reading the 3rd book. Wow. I’d already be done with all 20 something books in just a week. I have to say he was going kind of slow. When I’d finally gotten done which took an hour (which felt like 3 hours) I watched with my mom America’s Handyman, I think that’s what it’s called. Well, if you’re an HGTV fan, you would know. Turns out the handyman “Peter” won. He sucked. And Holmes was just looking for problems on Elliot’s patio. I have to say either Dennis or Elliot should’ve won. Not PETER. When we were done watching my family, especially my mom, had to pick up dad from work.

When we arrived I saw on the company sign “SAGE”. I was pretty surprised my dad’s FINALLY working on stuff he loves. When we picked him up, we all started asking him questions as if though he was kid we were dropping off and on. Lol. When we got home we had to stay inside the car for 5 minutes because there was a heavy rain in Georgia. When we got inside mom, dad and I started watching How I Met Your Mother when this guy goes through his childhood memories. The day was good and I was able to sleep. See ya all. Lol.

Most Of The Time I’m Your Everyday Butler


August 1, 2010
I don’t know if I remember clearly. But, I’m sure I wrote a post about my hard work. Except then it was never noticed. NOW, it’s the same thing except everybody thanks me from time to time. But, as long as I’m acknowledged and known I’m happy. But, now lets get back to what really happened today (yesterday). I was sleeping. Which of course I would do at night. But, I didn’t get to remember my dream. It was all just plain blank. Though, when I woke up, I decided to do that technique where I dream what I want to imagine in the morning. After the big sleep. Well, I tried it and it worked like a charm. I decided to dream about skateboarding. Except skateboarding while challenging Nyjah Huston. If you’ve ever heard of him then please inform me. But then, I decided to dream of canoeing again except at the Nile River. Where all the crocodiles try to kill us. Except what wasn’t expected was the fact there was always blood gushing out of the Crocodiles nostrils whenever I slapped it away. Weird… 😕

Anyways, when I was in the middle of fighting a lonely frustrated boar I was awakened. But, not just by anybody. It was my mom. Man, I really did it this time. It was church day and there are 3 reasons why I was able to figure THAT out in just a matter seconds. 1. I always have a hunch when it’s time to worship God. 2. my mom rarely comes inside my room unless it’s urgent just like Church. 3. because she looks into my closet for clothes which she never does unless it’s church day. I’m just lucky I don’t have to stay up this early in the mornings. Which would mean I would have to support my mom. Which would be fine as long as I grew a habit of doing it. Then, I made this decision which was actually a stupid one to go on the computer. Luckily, I just harvested from my trees when my mom came to chew me out. Well, after all the work my mom had to go through by putting on clothes for the rest of us we went to church. Oh and FYI, right now it may seem as if my mom is the worker or miss butler. But, then she gets tired around the afternoon and evening. That’s when I take shift.

Well, once I got to church I knew I was going to get for the first time my small group. Which was awesome. In church Elementary small group is just when you sit in a circle with a leader and some other kids and do these kid activities. Which I grew out of around 4th grade. But, in church middle school small group means you’re STILL with a leader but you are in this confined room which I think I’ve already described in my early posts. But, I never thought the experience in the group would be this fun. Oh, and the room was bigger than all the other rooms I got a preview of so lucky me. Well, there were some friends and enemies of mine that wasn’t in the room I was currently at. For example: Michael and Drew which I’m still trying to get friendlier to and then Whiley for enemy. But, I’m not going to say another story of how or why we became my enemy. So, lets get that out of our system (brain). Well, when I got in the room I saw my TRUE friends. August, Asa, Andrew and Peyton. Then, there were these two new kids I guess.

The service felt like it took only an hour which sucked. It felt like I just got here and missed almost everything and just when I settled it was over. Well, it was nice. But, then one of the new kids wanted to call his sister which I saw just in worship and just to tell you, she was very beautiful for her age. Like a famous celebrity kid like Dakota Fanning when she was little. Anyways, he wanted to call his sister. Except she hung up the next 2 seconds then he dragged me out of the room area. Then, I figured out my parents were waiting so I knew it was going to be abnormal my parents seeing a kid I guess younger than me by a few months dragging me. I also knew that my dad would want an explanation too. So, once we got to Walmart and went home we settled and ate. Except I was too enthusiastic about eating soup. Well, I was actually the last person on the table not finished with my soup. But, then I finished happily. Afterwards, my mom and dad watched White Collar and the episode was boring. Though, I still took some questions. Then, my mom asked me to bring her some water. That’s when I knew my shift started.

Then, my dad and I were about to watch the last Psych episode until my brother interrupted and said it was his time to watch. After that we watched Psych. Then, I had to go water gun fight my friends again because my mom and dad were watching Hot Tub Time Machine. And they didn’t want us to watch. I beat Logan happily 3 times. So, that was payback for the last few days all of them went against me. But, then, my own team betrayed me. Then, I went inside to do my butler duties.

Family Fights Can Be REALLY Annoying And Harsh


July 30, 2010
Well, I can’t wait for tomorrow (today). It’s going to be my day in a small group at church. And in our grade small groups means they’re our personal room with coaches, chairs, drawer with a beautiful flower bouquet on top of it. Though, their are a few annoying side effects about the rooms. It’s a confined space. Only the 9th graders get like the BIG rooms. Like leaving rooms. Anyways, the other side effect is the fact that you have to either listen to what’s on a person’s mind or you have to express to a group of people what’s on your mind that relates to what we just listened to in the back stage about God. But, that’s ALL. Now, lets get back to what happened today (yesterday).

Well, I woke up really harsh. With feeling a pain in my back. I tried to stretch it out. But, too much pain was across my back. So, I did some quick thinking by tilting my body backward like you’re trying to do a bridge. Though, if you search that word online it would’ve given the wrong describing. Anyways, I was having thoughts through my mind while I was walking slowly downstairs. But, ran on the stairs, which made big noises that I even thought my mom would wake up and come and get me. But, she just ignored it as usual. But, once I got downstairs I had the tendency to play Farmville. So, I did. Then, I just went upstairs without breakfast which was abnormal for me. Later on, I had breakfast with my sisters and brother. Matthew was watching the Dsi none-stop.

Then, when I went upstairs with my mom to watch Pirates and the Caribbean Matthew was yelling like he wanted somebody to stop choking him. Unfortunately, he was just yelling because he wanted Patricia to do what he asked for. I tried to drag him away from the Ds. But, he just hit me like he NEEDED to watch or else DEATH. What is wrong? So, Matthew had to be sent in the room to cool down. Then, I got into a fight with Simon. It was harsh too. But, I beat him in it. Sometimes, Simon reminds me of Freddy in iCarly. Anyways, then I got into an argument with my mom and just to tell you it was an unfair fight. But, the rest of the details are private. So, at the end we saw the third Pirates of the Caribbean. Which was awesome until my dad wanted to watch White Collar with my mom.

Man, THAT man just got home from work. He can’t watch!! Even when I AM watching. But, I tried to keep my self cool. Though, in order to do that I had to shut my mouth and let my dad watch. Ugh!! Grownups. Lol. Anyways, we had to wait an hour for the White Collar to end. While that we watched Big Time Rush since nothing else interesting was on. So, we actually found this new song from Big Time Rush called the City Is Ours. Here’s a clip of it: (than we had quiet time then went to bed). Oh dang it they give off stupid videos of them. F those youtube people. Lol.
