I think I have an idea of what I am going to be for Halloween

October 27, 2008

…and it is not a man baby, though I was pretty sure I was going to be one for a while there.

Speaking of babies, tomorrow we get to find out the gender!!!  I still say boy, but who knows… I get to leave school about ten minutes early to go to the ultrasound.  I think we will be doing that 3D ultrasound, which we did with Lydia.  It will be neat.

The term ends on Halloween.  I am hoping my grades stay the same or improve, but (darn, I was about to say ‘but who knows…,” which I already said in this extremely short post)…  My current grades are as follows:

Latin II: 101% (easy-peasy)

English: 92% (the participation points are what throw me off- I am not very good at participating, it seems)

AP Euro: 81% (if I bomb the test we took today, it may go down to a C, but hopefully what with the weighted grade for it being an AP class, it will remain a B- then again, if I did well, perhaps it will go up…there is really no chance of it going up to an A unless, by some miracle, I got really high As on both the essay and multiple choice portions)

Child Development II: 99% (hooray!)

…and the end.

For real; I have nothing more to say.  Excepppt, if anybody has a suggestion for a boy’s name that would go with the other names in our family (Jacob, Hope, Clara, Emma, Abram, Bennett, Lydia) and has a one-syllable nickname, by all means, suggest it.  My parents are thinking Samuel, Sam for short, but I have always had a strong dislike for the name Samuel… it just sounds so… I dunno, like priest or something.

Anyway, bye for real for real.

Wow, this life is exciting!

Today was short and tomorrow will be grand.

September 22, 2008

Because of the two hour late arrival and all, today was quite short. I got a 104% on my Latin quiz, so that was great, but I got a 45% on my AP Euro test on the multiple choice portion, which was awful. Then again, he said the test scores usually get better so that is good.

Tomorrow there will be a Tuesday club. It will be great.

Well, that was the shortest post ever.

I have no idea what I will do with the rest of my day.

Goodbye.

EDIT 22 SECONDS LATER: I am reading an excellent book which I think is called Magical Thinking.

Happy Business Women’s Day and Elephant Appreciation Day.

Here is somebody else’s picture of John Green with a puppy-sized elephant to celebrate:

And a picture of a strange-looking baby elephant, because it is cute:

What is up with his ears? I do not know, but it is adorable.

OH MY GOODNESS, I just thought of a new thing of the day! The historical event of the day! I will have to alert Wallie immediately.

TODAY IN HISTORY: The record for drinking Ketchup belongs to Dustin Phillips (USA). On this day, he drank a 14 oz. bottle of Ketchup through a 1/4″ straw in 33 seconds. (1999)

The end, for real.

Farewell.

ANOTHER EDIT HOURS LATER: 35 views today.  You guys kill me.

I am in a blender, according to my facebook status. You know, because I have mixed feelings and all.

June 11, 2008

It is Wednesday and my second-to-last day of school. You all probably know that if you have ever read anything recently that I have written, considering I speak of those facts constantly, but I felt the need to mention it nonetheless.

Alright, today. Hmm… (cue numerals)

[1]Wednesday Club, our last one of the school year, was marvelous. We hope to continue it over the summer, though I am thinking it would be nice to go someplace else such as bowling or people watching or something.

There was this guy at Wednesday Club, this guy pretty much everyone else I know knows. I simply had not struck up a conversation with him before, though I had heard a lot about him from friends and such. The conversation we had was about me looking familiar to him. Actually, it was not really a conversation, more of a sort of greeting or… whatever… it got me thinking.

Am I a familiar face? I cannot really ask people that know me whether I am familiar to them, considering that would be pointless. So, hmm… unless I speak to perfect strangers and ask them whether I look familiar, then I guess I will not get an answer. Much like many things in life.

Other than that, we did not stray far from our usual Wednesday routine. I did get handed a free local newspaper at Giant, so that was pretty neat. I have not yet had much of a chance to look at it, but most definitely will after this post.

[2]Tomorrow is the last day of school… my goodness, this year sure heeded my beginning-of-the-year warning to, ‘hit the road, Jack.’

[3]Fantastically, I received my new Threadless shirts in the mail today. They are even more marvelous than I had thought they would be. I think I will wear Training for Utopia tomorrow. It is a nice end-of-the-year shirt, I think.

[4]This morning, I realized while on the bus to school that I had forgotten the yogurt and measuring cups needed for a Child Development project. I frantically phoned and text messaged both of my parents to see whether one of them could bring them in. My father ended up doing it, kind soul that he is. I must find a way to be less forgetful, seen by the next snippet-

I forgot both my yearbook and a book Daniel borrowed from me (The Princess Bride– despite being far overrated, it is one of the best books ever) at the library in the hands of friends. They will bring them to me at school tomorrow. In the meantime, does anybody have any ideas for remembering things? Preferably not relating to writing on hands- I did that for a while with writing the holidays and numbers and words of the day on my right hand, and whenever I leaned on my hand (which I do quite frequently) ink marks were left on the side of my face. Not that I minded so much, but my parents did not like that so much.

[5]And, as I was speaking of my father bringing things to school for me, listen to this- he was able to walk into the school right among the students, and nobody even stopped him. This worries me terribly- if he was able to walk in undetected, then would strangers be able to walk right in and leave a bomb in a bathroom or something? Perhaps school is not as safe as I once thought.

[6]Speaking of school, as I was quite a lot (considering, without school, I would not have much to do), there was a fire drill today. Nothing eventful happened, we just left the school and then came back in a few minutes later, but I thought I would mention it anyway.

[7]I took a final in both Child Development and Albegra II today. Both were quite easy, and I am hoping they will bring my grades up. My English grade went up to an A (despite what is being mentioned in the next section), my Child Development grade is an 88%, and my Math grade is hopeless (at 82%), so there is a sort of kind of slim chance I will get straight A’s. The Math final counts for 20% of my grade, so mayhaps that will help.

[8]We took our last vocabulary quiz in English today. I was so excited to finish my 100% streak that I finished it quickly, convinced that I got every one correct. Unfortunately, in my excitement I accidentally skipped a problem, making another one incorrect as well. Meaning I received a 92% on it. I was so upset.

[9]I finished reading The Death of Vishnu today. It was horribly sad, at least a lot of it was. The next book on my list is The Nazi Officer’s Wife, an equally sad book. I am thinking I will read a different book instead, one that is much happier so that my summer does not start off on a grievous foot. So, with this I ask you- does anoybody have any happy (or at least mostly) book recommendations? Thank you in advance.

[10]We received our schedules today. Mine is pretty much amazing. I got into all of the classes I wanted to be in. Unfortunately, I got a teacher for Math that everybody says is a bad teacher- must I be cursed with bad Math teachers when I am already not so good at Math? Also, I received an amazing teacher for AP Euro but, apparently, he is no longer going to be teaching that class so that will change. On top of that, a ton of people’s schedules are all messed up, with the same class but different teachers in one semester and other such mistakes. So, perhaps everybody’s schedules will be changed up.

Luckily, I have one of my favorite teachers for Latin II. So, all in all, it is great and I am looking forward to next year. I do not have many friends in my classes, but I never do so that will be fine.

In my schedule, I am signed up for Photography I and Guitar I in the same semester, meaning that I will have to carry around a camera and a guitar throughout the whole day. At least, providing that I do have to do that for those classes. I am not exactly sure.

[11]The number of the day is 3393 (chosen by Wallie- something to do with his birthdate), the word of the day is zazzy (flashy or stylish), and the holiday is Hug Holiday. I actually received more hugs than usual today, so that is good.

Anyway, (boy, I use that word often) I am off to do something. I am not sure what yet, but I will find something.

Farewell. (Wow, when I write again my freshman year will be over!)
