Happy Friday! Another night sitting around my house. Doing nothing in particular.
Let’s do some catching up!
Daylight Savings time has dawned upon us. Woo! A whole ‘nother hour of daylight? More bike & park time, hanging out with my buddies, etc. I’ve been waiting for this all cold, wet, dark winter long! I didn’t do much this week though, because I’m sick but this weekend will be re – lax – ing!
I’ll be brother-free until Sunday since he’s on a camping trip for the weekend. Tomorrow I will be participating in a 5k I know nothing about and that my mom just told me about an hour ago. It starts at 7:30. In the morning. I might write about it.
Today was the last day of the 3rd quarter in the school year. 45 more school days! I can already feel the tears as I was crying last night about it. Leaving the best 3 years of my life especially since my 4 best best ever friends are all going to different schools. Their not even going to school with each other. I really hope we can stay connected.
We’re not going to get our report cards until April 2nd. After Spring Break which is the week before! It’s probably going to be too cold to go swimming at the beach. Aaaw, man!
I’m reading 3 books, now. Summerland, The Help, and Unwind, which I just started today. Summerland is really thick. It’s like you have digest the pages. The Help is hilarious, of course. Unwind is going to be great because it’s by Neal Shusterman and is already on-the-edge-of-your-seat-on-the-hammock-until-it-breaks thrilling.
Yup. I broke the hammock in the front yard. Just by sitting on it.
Right now I’m chilling out with my new jam, The Heist by Macklemore. You’ve probably heard the song, Thrift Shop, right? People won’t stop singing it at my school. That, Can’t Hold Us, and Same Love are my favorites.
My classmates were talking about some weird stuff in Language Arts. We had to do this Scavenger Hunt thing, but everyone got to around number four and then quit. So, we were all just messing around while Mrs. Richmond, like, took a nap or something because she didn’t say anything for most of the period. Somehow, we got on the subject of Personal Development, and of course, really nasty jokes. I’m not going to say them all, but my favorite was,
A vegetarian walks into an Italian restaurant.
The waiter says, “What would you like this evening?” Says the waiter
“I’ll have the meatballs, hold the meat.”
I know. This is very immature for a bunch of eighth graders.
Today, I got up, took a shower and got dressed and was sitting in my living room eating oatmeal. Just as I was putting my bowl in the sink, I remembered I had forgotten to wash my hair. I smelled like a wet dog. Instead of getting back in the shower, which would take forever, I tried to wash my hair in the bathroom sink. It worked, except for when I got my hair stuck down the drain, almost. Once I was done with that dilemma, I hit my head really hard on the faucet. BAM! OW! I ended up with a huge bump on my head. At least I smelled good.
I just thought of something funny a kid in my Language Arts class said yesterday. My teacher was laying down the law for the new nine weeks, so she was talking about how we should take our reading logs seriously. I don’t find reading to be a problem because I love it so much, but some kids can’t stand it! Right after the teacher talked about what counts as “reading”, one of the guys raised his hand and asked,
“If we’re watching a movie and turn on the subtitles and read those, can we put that down on our reading logs?”
The whole class busted out laughing because this teacher likes to be super-serious. She hardly ever laughs during class. When he said that, her face turned as purple as an eggplant, she was so mad! That just made it even funnier.
The cat cries at the back screen door
He thinks, What are you playing this sick game for?
I’ve just put the flea stuff all over his skin
Now he wants to go out instead of staying in
He rubs up against my leg,
His big, almond eyes are starting to beg
Oh, please, Oh, please, Won’t you let me out?
I can almost see his lips forming a pout
He meow meow meows in a pleading way
When all he wants to do is run about and play
Then he sits down to come up with an excuse
Probably thinking, This is animal abuse!
Just when I think he’s calmed down a bit
Soon he’s off on another fit
I can barely concentrate with him staring at me
All I can think is What a poor kitty
At last I hear a Ding! and the treatment is done
Now my flealess kitty can finally have some fun
