First day in St. Louis!

The Arch

Today I was a shadow. That’s when you follow a student arond during their school day to see what their school is like. First, I went to an Advanced English class which had a terrific discussion on The Picture of Dorian Gray. (I’ll have to read that book sometime in the near future.) Second, I went to a social studies class that was talking about different forms of censorship by the government in the media. Third, I went to another English class where the class was taking a test. I took it along with them but of course mine wasn’t graded. We also discussed the main characters of the story “Of Mice and Men” (I haven’t read that book yet either. =p) Finally, we had lunch…YAY! It was really yummy fettuccine with zuccini and salad. It was sooo good. I also had an interview to end the day.  I think It went really well. We’ll find out by the 15th of March if I made it.

Today was our mini-Relay For Life. We did laps in the gym, listened to cancer survivors, and also had a prayer service and a mass. This year, it was really different because I actually knew someone with cancer. My classmate, D, was diagnosed with bone cancer. He just recently came back to school and uses crutches because they had to replace a part of his leg bone. We’re all just relieved that he’s back in school with us.

I got to read at the prayer service because I’m part of the school’s relay for life team. I can’t wait for the real Relay for Life. This year it’s at the local college. My school’s team, the Lions, will have atleast one person making laps all eighteen hours. It’s always alot of fun and it all goes to a great cause.

Today, I told C and S about my possibly going to high school in St. Louis. I really want to go and will miss them alot. I’m just not sure if I’ll be able to say good-bye to everything I’ve ever known. I talked to the Admissions Director yesterday night. She was very nice and we talked for a while. I think I’ll be going up there to spend a day at the school this Friday. I am so excited!

There’s eight inches of snow outside…
Curved Yellow Fruit…
It’s a snow day! Wait, it’s more than that, it’s a snow storm! All the schools are out and I have the house to myself. What a perfect day. Maybe I’ll take this time to crochet my extra yarn I have lying around. Or just take  a nap.

I had to create a new Flickr page today. I somehow got locked out of my old account and can’t remember the password for my life. So now all of my pictures are gone so I’ll be stuck uploading all my old pictures for the next few days. Even though it’s annoying it could always be worse.

 It’s exercise day at the Y today. I don’t know if it’s too late to sign up for Cross Country or not. But if it is, atleast I’ll be ready for when tennis season starts. (aka as soon as this lousy snow melts) Tennis is my favorite sport but running is a close second. =]

Today I had the unfortunate task of square dancing in gym class. I couldn’t believe that we where actually going to be doing someting this weird.

 

Track…or crosscountry? February 24, 2008

It’s time to start training for track this year. I’m so excited! Me and S are going to be gym buddies since we live so close to each other. Awesome. So today I jogged about two miles. That’s not bad considering that I almost never exercise and that this was my first day of training. I’ve actually never been on a school sports team before, so I’m really nervous (hence the everyday training) But people have said that it’s really fun so I’ll give it a try.

I’m sad…and cynical.

I’m supposed to be sleeping but instead I’m blogging. (What a lovely example of time management) Ugh, If I want to get into high school I have to improve my math grade by ALOT. Maybe instead of blogging right now I should do the homework I put off doing this afternoon…Oh well…

 

Dancing with The Stars February 19, 2008

Yay, I love this show. Here is this year’s line-up.

I believe this will be a pretty good season.
