Recorders Suck

Okay, so I updated only now, but I am a student first. (did that sound nerdy or what?) Anyways, what a wild first week of real school. I have lessons now and I was almost late twice this week. Can you believe this? First week of school and I'm already nearly late. This can't be possible.

But that's all been taken care of because my mom had a little conversation with the driver and now I'm quite early thank you very much. Unfortunately, the traffic is so bad on my way home that I sometimes get home two hours later than the original time I'm supposed to go home. Uh oh. Not good at all, but I can't really blame anyone because traffic really sucks anyway.

I fell asleep right when I got home for a lot of this week and that wasn't very good for me either, because I'm supposed to be studying. Oops I guess. It's the first week anyway. The problem is, I have to do really well this year, because that's what's going to come out in my transcript. Well, it's what they're going to pay attention to the most and I really have to make a great impression if I want to get into a good college. I can't believe I'm already freaking and it's only the first week! AAACK!

Fun stuff happened though. My friend had her birthday last Wednesday and that was fun. I gave her a really nice lotion, perfume and shower gel set thing and I think she actually liked it. I'm so happy for her. I've known her since Kinder one and I just want to greet her a belated happy birthday, Lee! I hope you have so much more.

Anyway, I met a bunch of my new teachers already and some of them are really weird, but most of them are pretty tolerable. Although, I can count on one hand how many of them really are just way out, but I guess I'm really going to have to live with them. I hope they give good grades though, because I just got my first CL quiz back and I sucked! I merely passed it with my fingers hanging onto the edge of the cliff. I swear! I so do not want to flunk anymore. That was such a horrible experience. The way she looked at me when she gave me my paper just gave me the creeps.

Speaking of her, I really like my CL teacher. She's really great at giving out discussions and I am actually interested in what she has to say. That was really good, because usually, I fall asleep during that class. For the first time, I'm actually super studying for her subject. In fact, I've been reading her book everyday and that's pretty darn good, because I don't usually study every single day.

Can I just say that I suck at recorder instruments? For those who don't know what they are, recorders are flute like things that you have to blow into to produce a sound. Yes, I have to learn how to play it. The problem is, I SUCK!My brothers who are both younger than me, can play songs and I can't even play the C Major scale, aka the EASIEST scale ever! This is a shame. I feel so untalented. I can't even cover the wholes of the freaking recorder properly, nor do I know how to breath properly. To think this is what I'm supposed to be doing for music for the rest of the school year? Beautiful.

Anyway, on the bright side, I got into the first screening/auditions of cheerleading. This is the second time I'm trying out. I tried out the year before and I passed the first screening too, but I didn't get into the second screening, so now, I'm kind of hoping that I get in. I mean I've always wanted to be a cheerleader, but hey, if I don't get in, I'm not really going to cry. Besides, I also got into the high school publication. You will not believe how that came about.

I've always wanted to be apart of it, because in fourth year, I get to be a part of the yearbook committee and I really wanted to be there and hello, they write and I like writing. So I find out that the auditions are on Wednesday and guess what? I found out on the day itself. So, I figure out a way where I can still get home and at the same time audition. So I do and my article is such a joke, because originally I wanted to be in the features department, but unfortunately, that's only for the freshmen. So I try out. I make a poem and an essay.

Today, I find out that I got into both! Oh joy! Here comes the challenge. How to balance everything I got myself into. Uh oh. Now, I'm in trouble. Oh well, so much for enjoying the weekend. I've got a thousand and one things to do... so I gotta go. Dang! School's back.
