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.
Today I spent an hour sitting in the Dance Room at school. The Dance Room is a part of the gym, although I don’t know why they call it that because as far as I know, we don’t have a dance team or anything. The reason for skipping Band and the majority of Science class is that I was picking my electives for High School!!!!
The way it worked was everybody going to Washington HS (me!) went to the Dance Room because there were so many of us and all the other 8th graders went to the library. Then one of the Head Ladies started picking groups of students to go to work with the counselers, and of course I was picked last. But, that gave me the chance to hang out with my future classmates. One was this kid named Jason who wore red pants and a vintage Pepsi shirt. Super-Rad!
The electives I wanted most were Jazz Band, Regular Band, Spanish and Drama. The lady, who looked retired and very sweet said, “Oh! Well, you must be a Fine Arts person!” To which I replied, “Of course!” because I am! Anyway, she said I would probably get all of my classes I wanted except, maybe, for Jazz Band because it’s so popular, so I might get into P.E. Bleh! But the awesome part is it will be the only P.E. class I have to take because if I stay in Band all for years, that makes up the rest of the credits!
I’ll probably end up knowing what I get maybe at the end of the year, but most likely over the summer. Can’t wait!
