Reflecting the Year: 2010

I just wanted to start this post out by saying: thank you to all of the people who comment on my blog. I truly appreciate it. It makes my day! Also, thank you to the people who follow my blog. I really, really appreciate it.

The year, 2010, was a year filled with changes and new discoveries. Good changes and good discoveries. I've been applying to new schools this year. I have been blessed with new friendships this year, who I love. I took my first exams this year. I've learned so much. I started a blog (Which I never thought I would do)! I started a band with my best friends(The Flashcards!!!). I could list millions more, but this would be a very long post. A lot of discoveries and changes have changed me personally in a positive way!

2011, I hope will be a year of new adventures and new discoveries. I can't believe its only 2 more days till 2011 already! I remember in kindergarten, when we got back from school after the New Year, which was six years ago, I remember thinking that 2011 would never come. It's amazing how time flies by. I can't believe it's 2 days till a new decade.

I have stepped out of my comfort zone this year many times. Like playing basketball or making a stand to play GE instead of dreaded soccer. This year I have made a lot of my thoughts into actions. I am happy about that! I have done a lot of things this year that I never thought I would do!

Knowing that it is almost 2011 makes me happy and scares me at the same time.  It makes me happy because it is a new year, which means new adventures. It scares me because people believe that in the year 2012 the world is going to end. I really don’t believe in this prediction, but you never know what could happen. Maybe they are right. Maybe they are wrong. But, I believe that only God knows, so I can’t ponder about it because I have no control over that. Anyways, in 2012 my sister, Ange, is going to graduate from high school. It makes me sad because I am close to my sisters and obviously she is going to live at whatever college she goes to. But, I guess that is a new adventure in itself. 

If I had to name the year 2010 I would title it: New Adventures and New Discoveries!

If you had to title the year 2010, what would you title it? Why? How was your Christmas?

Basketball and Vacation Time!!

This is a strange post because I have combined two posts in one. First, the post you are going to read about will be about my basketball game. My Second, is about what happened today.

Girls B team (which I am apart of) had their first basketball game. You are probably wondering why I said I was a part of a basketball team if you read my last post about how I wanted to do swimming. Your answer is: I never switched back to swimming. I am now and until spring, playing basketball. I love basketball now.  Now, let’s talk about the game. Our team did very well for our first time playing with each other. We have only had 4 days of practice before this game and 2 of them were try outs(Which means we didn’t actually learn how to play basketball).

The game started out by our team scoring three points. Then the other team got upset and was more aggressive towards us. But, after a while they got ahead of us and then at the end of the game we had an even score. I attempted to make some baskets. It didn’t turn out though.

During this game, one of my teachers, Mr. C, was working the score board. Every time our team needed someone to sub. He would have the score board make a beeping noise. After the first beep Mr. C rang for our team, the ref came over to Mr. C and yelled at him for pressing the beep button. He said to Mr. C “WHENEVER YOU PRESS THE BUTTON I LOOK AT YOU TO SEE WHATS GOING ON. YOU HAVE TO TELL ME FIRST IF YOU ARE GOING TO WANT TO SUB. SOMEONE!” Mr. C said, “Sir please doesn’t scream at me.” The ref replied “I AM NOT SCREAMING (Which he obviously is)!!! AND DON’T CALL ME SIR. CALL ME M..” With our hearts pumping rapidly we look to Mr. C and he got up and said “M, please don’t talk to me this way. I will stop making the noise just calm down.”

The ref walked away mad. After that event happening in the game, he called every little foul he could find with our team. It was disappointing. He favored the other team.  Every time he had to give a command to Mr. C he always yelled at him while pointing at him. At the last 4 second to go of the game, our team made a score which made have an equal score to the other team. The ref, out of nowhere, made everyone play for 7 more seconds because someone stepped on a line on the other side of the court that we were playing on. So we added 7 seconds and the score came out to 22 for both teams! What a game!

Vacation time!

Today was my last day of school for 2 and a half weeks!!!!!!!!!! It was the best day of eighth grade yet (Besides our trip to Washington D.C.)!!!!! I'll tell you why...

I'll tell you each of my classes and what we did in each:

First, I had history, which wasn't as fun as the other classes. In history we worked on our power points and read an article. Then, we had a free time to do whatever we want.

Second, I had Latin. Let me just say, every Latin class I have is full of laughter and fun so today was even more fun than usual. We watched a famous comedian on YouTube. Every other word he said was a swear. It was sort of funny. Then we  just talked about Christmas. What a great class!

Third, I had science. We did this really cool experiment. It was very interesting and fun!

Fourth, it was Math. We just talked the whole time and did a fun worksheet.

Fifth, it was English(Which is already full of good times and laughter). We watched a TV show called Pengu. I have never heard of it before, but it was funny.

Those are all my classes, but after all of them we had advisors and clubs. In Advisor we did a complicated work sheet full of mazes and etc.. Then, finally, the best part of the day, ROCKETRY!!!!!! Our rocketry club was so much fun because we launched our rockets and they went very, very, very high! Some of them even exploded!

What a great day!!!!!

How about you? How was your day? What did you do?

Dinner with M.G.!

Although I wrote a post yesterday, I just needed to write another one today. Well, as the title says, I went to dinner with my mom and one of her really good friends M.G. after my final Annie performance. She is a very sweet and nice woman.

A couple of funny things happened after the play and during the dinner. At the play, after the performance, my mom went up to the pianist and said "You look so familiar? Where do I know you from?" and the pianist listed all of the possible places my mom could have known him from and M.G. blurts out "Well, it doesn't matter where you know him, but he is cute." I didn't respond. He blushed. Then she yelled "He is cute isn't he? I know, but he should date you or Ange (my sister). Would you date him?" I just pretended like I didn't hear her. It was so acquired. I hope he didn't hear her.

Then, my mom, M.G., and I went to a nice Italian restaurant. It was DELICIOUS. Well, while M.G. was eating her dinner, she stuck her fork into her pork chop, and it flew off the dish and hit the waitress on her leg. She (M.G.) started to laugh and hid her face behind her napkin, while the waitress gave her the evil eye the rest of the dinner.

After that incident, there was another one. I told her my best friends and I started a band called the Flashcard (isn't that such an amazing name?). Jen, Dani, and I are the people in the band. Jen made up this song called What Type of Sweater? It is an amazing song, just to let you know, and she said to me after I told her about the band,"That is such a cool name for a song? Would you sing it?" I said "Well, I'll definitely sing it for you later. Just not in this restaurant." she replied "Okay! You don't have to but definitely later!"

As I was singing the song in my head, I just thought why not sing it no one is going to care! I said to her "I'll sing it for you actually." I started singing it and if you know me I get carried away with everything. As I get to the middle, I started like break dancing in the middle of a well known restaurant. Then, after the song, I hear other people clapping for me in the back ground and I said "Oh- thanks..!" (While being deeply embarrassed on the inside, wanting to disappear from the resturant for that second. Then, I didn't care that people listened because one day Jen, Dani, and I are going to have to preform in front of many people). M.G. was proud of me!

M.G. is so much fun and when ever your with her, you’ll know you will have a good time!

Finally, the Dance and the Musical!!

Today was the first night of our middle schools production and my first eighth grade dance. First, let me say tonight was THE BEST NIGHT EVER IN MY EIGHTH GRADE HISTORY!!!!!!!!!! I was so ebullient.

The musical, Annie, was fantastic. I am the lights in Annie. It was fantastic, but there were some mistakes made during this show. Like, know how there is a dog named Sandy in the play? Well, the dog we had ran off the stage and ran to the other side of the theater. Everyone started laughing and though it was great! During one of my light cues (Which is just hitting button that says, GO) and I hit all of the buttons by accident (OOPS) but I thanked God nothing happened. Jen, if you are reading this, you did such a great job! At the end of the play, the fire alarms went off and everyone had to exit the building. I ran out of the building searching for Dani, Jen, and my family. During this search, TyTy and APG came up to me and I was like "WHERES DANI AND JEN?!!?!?" I had a heart attack since they were still in the building with the fire alarms still going off. But, ending up, someone pulled the fire alarm and Jen and Dani were fine.

 On the other hand, the dance was AMAZING! Let me first tell you what a dance was like last year...

Last year, in seventh grade, a dance would be boring. Dani and I would just stand and talk (not dance, AT ALL). A lot of drama went on and we felt out of place, just standing in the middle of dancing people. We normally just sat down and watched.

This year, the dance was fun. The theme of the dance was black lights. Everyone wore a white shirt and colored themselves in highlighter so they would glow in the dark. When Dani and I first got there we were stiff and we felt like it would be like another dance, like last year. In minutes Dani started dancing and I was still stiff. Then, by the middle of the dance, Dani and I were dancing both dancing. It was a great dance! I will never forget it! I can't wait for the next dance!

Global Warming

Today, on the way home from play practise, my mom and I were talking about the topic, Global Warming. It is such an interesting yet strange topic filled with mystical theories.

People today think the world is going to end because of Global Warming. I do not believe in this theory. One, because it is freezing up here in CT. It is always cold but I don't remember the last snowy November. It hasn't gotten any hotter. Two, for man does not know when the world is going to parish, only God(That may not be your opinion but if you are Christian you follow the rule of only God knows when the world is going to end). My mom and I were having a debate of what we think is going to happen.

I said that there is a 50% chance of it happening or not. I only think it might because people have turned aways from there religions and don't have any values in life so it might end for that reason that people aren't safe in their own homes. Also, I believe the weather patterns aren't permanently changing. They aren't different in any means (besides it getting colder).I believe our technological use is EFFECTING the earth slightly but not destroying it in a way humans are bothered by it! 

My mom said that people are taking advantage of mother nature. "Mother nature always wins," quoted from Sarah Palin on her show Sarah Palin's Alaska(My mom didn't actually use that quote. But, what my mom was saying was essentially is what Sarah said.) so if we are doing something we shouldn't be doing, mother nature willl rebel and win over us. We humans are at fault for using technology and for heating up the earth as a result of that (what my mom belives). 

I have don't know what to think of this topic. I don't know if riding your bikes to school or taking a public transit is really going to do anything to help the earth. I think doing these "helpful ways to save the earth" is just going to put yourself in danger. I don't know why a sudden ponder of Global Warming came in my head. But it did!

What do you think of global warming? Is it to be or not to be?
I wanted to just say thanks to Brooke (An amazing person and blogger) for the award!! THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Embarrassing moments of my own!

A couple of posts ago, I wrote about the top three embarrassing mom moments. I have decided to write some of my most embarrassing moments. I have plenty more than four but, I don't want to write a 30 page posts so I am going to stick with four!

1. Yesterday morning was like any other morning.  My mom, sister, and I are in a rush to get to school. My sister and I go to different schools. My sister got out of the car and I was just not thinking straight and I got out of the car with her (Thank god my sister didn’t notice me because I would still be hearing about it). I walked up to the school entrance and was terrified that I just embarrassed myself to death by getting out of the car with my backpack on my back. I see my mom coming after me and when she arrived to me she said "what are you doing?" I said "I don't know but, I am kind of scared." I just had a weird moment.

2. About, a couple of months ago, I went to NYC for a regular fun trip. I used one of the bathrooms in M and M world. Just to add if you ever have to go to the bathroom, don't use the ones in M and M world because they are disgusting and the line is so long. Getting back to the story, I was in a tight stall and I swung my leg over to flush the toilet and I smashed my leg into one of those tiny garbage boxes for the once a month times and all of the used items and things went all over the floor. I didn’t know what to do because there was a very, I will repeat very long line out the door. So I just left the stall and left it to the next person. Sorry, to whomever it was.

3. About, two winters ago, I played tennis. So I was with my tennis pro. and we are playing a match. I was getting into it. I smacked the ball back and forth. I felt this energy build up in me. I needed to let it out, so I smacked the ball as hard as I could and I end up hitting my pro right on the noise. It started to bleed everywhere. I felt so bad. Every time I said I am sorry she said back "No, don’t be! You were playing excellent. This was an accident, don’t worry about it." Now when I play, I make sure I don't hit someone in the face.

4. Yesterday, I was in the lunch line with Jen, TyTy, and Dani waiting for my lunch. I do my normal routine. I get purell to de-germ my hands. While I was getting purell in front of the tray stand some guy was in back of me facing the other direction. All of a sudden while I was getting my purell I feel someone pinch my pants and I turned around, ready to slap the person in the face and he said, "What was that?" while he was turning around to see what he just did"Oh- I am so sorry!! I didn't mean to I was trying to get a tray!" I said in reply "It's okay..... Just watch what you are doing next time." Ughhh- That was so embarrassing.

Embarrassing moments actually help you in life and you gain strength from experiences. I have had a ton of embarrassing moments. I guess that what life is about. Especially if you are like me and you don't watch what you do.

Have you ever had an embarrassing moment?

Basketball Outcome.....

Let me first start out with, I am going back to swimming..... Basketball isn't my sport.... Let me tell you why....

This is how it started..... First, I am hyper as can be in the locker room getting prepared for basketball practice! Putting my new basketball shoes on and getting pumped up for my first practice. I go in the gym. I felt confident.

Then, we did some drills. I grabbed a basketball feeling a rush of nervousness and sacredness. I got in line for the drills. The drills were to dribble the ball down the court to the other end of the gym... Well, I was doing the drills incorrectly the whole time. I was so pissed at myself. I was saying to myself "come on! Do it right this time! Basketball is still fun, right?" Then I tried again, and did not succeed.

After the drills, we played half court games. I was so confused on what to do. So, Mr. C asked me if I wanted to go in and play yet. I said not yet because I am still confused on what to do. After about 10 min. he told me to join in. I was so discombobulated. It was as if I was the only one who spoke English. When people were talking in basketball language, I asked Dani “What are they saying?” She relied “I have no idea. Just watch everyone else!”  I did so and I still didn’t get what to do. So, in the game someone on my team passed me the ball and I had no idea what to do. My mind went blank. Mr. C was yelling "pass the ball over here," while he was pointing to a free person on my team.  I passed it and I was terrified for the next ball to be passed to me.....

I am so disappointed. I was very excited and eager to play this sport. This whole day I was so hyper and excited to play basketball. I was bugging Jen all day, saying “I can’t wait for basketball.” Her reply was “I am so confused? One second you hate basketball and now you love it? I don’t think you are going to like it as much as swimming” Jen, if you are reading this, you are SO right. Swimming is more my thing than basketball.  I have made my mind. Basketball does not run in my blood.

Swimming I think is the best alternative sport. I don’t want to spend another second playing basketball. Basketball felt like 5 hours long.

I guess I was always meant to swim!

Have you ever had an incident like this one?

The Misadventures of BasketBall!

I can't believe how many sport problems I have had this year! It’s like an ongoing cycle of unsure feelings about what sport is right for me. If you have been reading my blog I wrote about how I have joined the swim team as a winter sport..... That no longer is true! I have joined the basketball team!

I wanted to stop swimming because (although I still love to swim) I wanted to play something new. In the summer when I am bored, I always play basketball with my parents or siblings. So today I faced my fears and switched.

Basketball terrifies me but, at this moment I am excited to play! Today, my mom and I after school went to go and get basketball shoes. During that whole time I was screaming with joy and was so excited to be playing such a great sport.

There is a problem. People in my family aren’t so good at playing Basketball to put it nicely. My sister when she played basketball at my school she was the worst player on the team. She kept the benches nice and warm (which I am planning on doing). The coach I am going to be having, coached my sister. When Ange (my sister) was in a basketball game she had the ball and she was waiting for someone to get open so she could pass it on to someone else. She waited and waited. Then all of a sudden a girl on the other team was jumping in Ange's face. She was trying to stop Ange from passing it. So the girl was having a nervous breakdown because Ange didn’t pass it to someone, so Ange gave her the ball. After, I was so mad at her and I said "WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!?!?"(Especially because that girl got a point by Ange passing the ball to her) She replied "if she wanted it so badly, she can have it." So basketball isn't exactly the best sport in my family.

 At the moment my basketball excitements is lacuna. I am so nervous! So I have decided to make a pros and cons list:

Pros (I thought of starting on the positive side first):

Get good exercise
Getting to know how to play basketball
Getting to be with all my friends
Just getting an overall experience of the game

Cons (I hope when you read this, you won't think that I am being ridiculous because these are true reasons why I don't want to play):

Getting hit in the face with the ball (meaning: getting a face injury like a broken nose or something like that)
Sweating (I am sorry. I don't like the sweat. Especially if I could be in a pool instead)
Running (I hate to constantly run)
Just embarrassing myself in general
Making my team lose

At the end of reading my Cons list you probably think I am crazy......... please don't reply to that thought.........

I am excited and nervous for basketball. I hope I do well. Wish me luck!!

What do you think about basketball? Have you ever played and did you like it?

Psychic Incidents!

 This weekend has been a long weekend, filled with strange events! This weekend my sister had her first formal dance. So, all of her friends and their dates came over so they can all take pictures!

I was just sitting in my living room, bored out of my mind, waiting for my sister’s friends to come and go. My sister, Ange, got worried if her dress wasn't like what the other girls dresses. So, she was saying how she wonders what they are going to wear. I said to Ange “I bet they are wearing pink dresses with black lace maybe one with flowers on top (I had a picture in my head). Or something around those lines."

All three of the couples when they walked in the house I was in shock..... Two of the girls were wearing a pink dress with black lace! The other girl was wearing a dress with flowers on the top of it!!!! I was in utter shock......

Another incident like this was when my mom and I were on our way to pick the couples up. Strangely and randomly I was thinking about the American Flag.  I was thinking about how pretty it is and how it should be on a high mountain lit up in every state, so every could see it. Then, all of sudden we passed on the high way a lit up flag on top of a mountain. My mom was like "look how pretty it is." I was screaming my head off in excitement!

Another incident was when I was with my dad in the car on our way to Stop and Shop. I had this really bad feeling for some reason. It was a strange feeling. I got really nervous. Then out of nowhere an accident happened right in front of our (dad and I) eyes and we were dumbfounded. After the accident, obviously I was nervous to see how the drivers were, but my strange nervous feeling was gone. It was as if I knew the accident was coming!

No offence to anyone but, I do not believe in psychics. I don't believe that anyone knows the future. But, these incidents I had were very strange and odd. Now I always trust my gut instinct.

What do you think? Have you ever had a psychic incident before?

Embarrassing Mom Moments!

In my life I have had millions of embarrassing mom encounters! My mom unintentionally has these embarrassing times! Here are the top 3 embarrassing moments......

1. When I went to a carnival about 4 years ago my mom and I went on a baby rollercoaster. I had a broken arm at the time so that was the only ride I could ride. This "rollercoaster" was about the size on my dining room table. So my mom and I got on it and it started to move....... My mom HATES rollercoaster’s so she starts to cacophonously yelling. Little 5 and 3 year olds in the back of us were staring at my mom like she was crazy (I don’t disagree)........  That was so embarrassing! The rollercoaster controller had to stop it and let my mom off.......... Good times, good times?

2. When my sister was in a play, my mom and I went to see the play. The play was Hairspray (it was fantastic) the main characters were Tracy and one of the other characters Mr. Pinky. Those two characters were outside not in their costumes. My mom went up to Tracy and Mr. Pinky and saw Tracy was hugging Mr. Pinky in a motherly fashion...... My mom said "Mr. Pinky, you did a fantastic job (which he did)!" then my mom said to Tracy "Are you his mother?" and she was laughing and she said "No! I am Tracy." So my mom turned it into a joke. I had no comment after that incident.

3. My mom is religious. So one weekend at my church they needed an altar server. If you are Catholic than you know what that is. If you are not, it is someone who goes up to the altar with the priest and essentially helps the priest out during church. When she went up she was bringing the priest the water and wine..... She dropped both glass and broke them both. It spilled all over the floor. After that I was hiding my face under the pews........
Although that moms can get embarrassing, you have to love them! Mothers are just mothers! That’s what moms do!!!

Have you ever had an embarrassing moment with your mother?

Today was the first day of winter sports. This winter I am doing swimming!!!!!! It was either swimming or basket ball, so I chose swimming. I was so excited to finally start swimming again!!!!!! Swimming is the only sport that I am not horrible in. Okay, I am horrible at swimming, but I like to think I am good at it!

I loved GE, but I wanted to start something new. GE was fun and interesting at the same time. But, I just love to think that I am swimming in a pool in the middle of winter! When I jump in the pool, I get this rush of energy that makes me excited and determind to get to the end of the lane first. When I start to paddle my way across the pool, I have a quiescent mind. I forget that I am swimming and I start to day dream in my own little world. Then, when I reach back to the other side of the pool I feel amazing, although I am the last person by far back.

If I could do swimming all year long I would because it is a great work out and it is relaxing. I spend practically my whole summer in water so it is something I enjoy. The great thing is, about 20 people are joining this sport. That is a lot of people because last year we only had about 10 people! Dani and I swim and every time (although it has only been a day) we go to the pool we are screaming with excitement.

Ahhh- I love swimming!

I can’t believe this is my 9th post!!! I just have to thank Jen, my best friend because if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have the confidence to have this many posts!! Thanks Jen!!!

Christmas Tree

Every year my mom and I on Thanks Giving put up our Christmas tree. This year for an unknown reason my mom wanted to put it up this past weekend.  I really didn't want to because I feel if you put the tree up much earlier than needed than you are rushing Christmas, which is my favorite holiday. So, my mom persuaded me to put up our tree with her.

My Christmas tree is a fake tree, and it is 13 feet high. If you have a fake tree you could probably understand how frustrating it is to put it together. So, every year, it takes about 2 hours to put the tree together because you have to put together branch by branch.

My mom and I brought the stand of the tree, then we got all of the branches together on a pole and 2 hours later it was done(if you don’t have a fake tree, you are lucky because putting a fake  tree up is very confusing). I was so tired. My mom and I were looking at my Christmas In excitement that it was up. It was about 11 o'clock P.M. when we finished so we went to bed. We got up and we completely forgot about the tree, until night came. We noticed the tree was on a tilt.

Then today on my way home from school my mom said to me "By the way, the tree looks great! I almost fixed the tilt. When we get home look at the tree and tell me if it is still on a tilt.”

I got home went into my living room and started to freak out! The tree fell over! My mom started to freak out with me. So we examined the tree and we noticed the base wasn't screwed in correctly. Now whenever I want to look at my tree I stay on the opposite side of the room so it doesn't fall on me. My mom said she has had a fake tree for almost her whole life, and she never had a problem with any of them. Now, I always ponder about what happened, and I think about, what if is going to fall again? I hope it won’t happen again, because we were extremely lucky it didn’t have any ornaments on it.

Here is my tree all put together!

Everyone, make sure if you have a fake tree to screw the whole tree properly into its base! Otherwise, you will come home with a tree in the middle of one of your rooms.

At my school, you are required to take a sport every season. Yes, you heard me you are REQUIRED! Some of you are thinking "That’s not so bad," but for me, it is! I am absolutely horrible at sports. It is something I will never be good in.

A year ago, I was playing soccer. The only sports that I am unrealistically bad at, is soccer. The only sports that  are offered in autumn at my school are soccer or field hockey. Since I don't ever want to play field hockey, I chose soccer. That was the worst and illogical thing I could have ever done. I loved my coach and everyone on my team, the problem was I just can't play that sport. I remember whenever we had a game, for some reason the ball would and always end up near me. But, whenever it did I would run the other way because I didn't want to kick it. My coach always yelled "Marg, kick the ball!" Everyone told me I needed to be more aggressive. I wanted to be more aggressive, but I just never could do basic skills of soccer. I was the worst person on the team so normally at games I would sit in the bleachers and wait until they needed me for back up. Soccer was one of the only things I epically failed in.

A year later (meaning now), I am the founder of this new sports called General Exercise. GE is my life saver from utter embarrassment  of my poor soccer skills. Jen, Dan, and I are the founders of this sport. Jen, Dan, and I signed up for GE, but it said on the form from the begining of the summer, "not guaranteed. Only if there are not more than seven participants in GE than it could not be played." So Jen and I in the summer called a couple of people up and asked if they wanted to join GE. We got seven people including ourselves.On the first day we got back to school from summer vacation, a teacher said that GE wasn't possible for  automn. I went up to him with our GE group and showed him we had plenty of people. So he let General Exercise be included in an automn sport. Now we have half of the football team. That is AMAZING!That was such an amazing feeling when we knew we were not doing soccer. Personally, I don't like to run, and the funny part is I love GE. What we do in GE is......
We run
We stretch
We do weights or we play a game

Now Mr. P, our coach, he was proudly presented to be the GE coach. I love GE! GE is so much fun. It is fun and exercising at the same time. I think that GE will be a long lasting legacy!

From Kickball to Curling Irons

You are probably wondering what this post is about. This post is about how much our grade has changed over the course of a couple of years that I have been at this school. My grade has really matured over the last 4 years that I have been there. But, in this post I will start from 2 years ago!

Sixth grade was the ending point of true childhood in my school years. I remember it was the year before middle school, and everyone was trying to be more mature and act like they are ten times their age. No one really cared about what you looked like or what you were wearing. The plus side was that people still loved games such as kickball. Everyone started wanting a boyfriend. I was not a part of that dream, and I was proud of that. That was the start of many troubles.

Seventh grade was the start of people's cliques and boy urges. Cliques formed and dates started. HW started to pile over our heads. Boys started to notice that girls are noticing them. Soon at the end of seventh grade everyone had a boyfriend. Only a select few (including me and my best friends) didn't. That was the starting point of feeling like a goon. That was the end of kickball and on to more “mature,” activities.

Eight grades is the time of which it is just normal for couples to be kissing in the hall way, or for someone to be hanging on each other as if they were crazy glued together. Every girl in the grade is now wearing make- up and curling or straightening their hair. This year so far is great, but people aren’t being themselves like they should.  

The point of this blog was not to mock people who wear make-up or people who straighten their hair. Personally, I think it is noce that people want to look presentable. The point was to show that people in a school could change rapidly without you realizing. The problem is, that is what life is about, change!

As you can see our grade has gone from a care free world to a self conscious one. That really annoys me that people can’t truly be themselves. I guess it is just something that happens to everyone in middle school that I am not accustomed to.

I can't belive this is my second post!!!! I didn't think this day would ever come! Annyway, although this blog is about middle school, some posts will be about other interesting things! Today is one of those days where I am going to tell you one of the strangest occurences that has happened to me!

I had this dream two nights ago where Dani, Jen, and I were on a bus, on our way to our school field. Dani and I got on the bus looking for our school books! Don’t ask me why we were, but we were. We were grabbing all of our books from people who took them and some of those people were sitting on them so we had to attempt to make it unnoticeable that we were trying to get the books from under them. By the time that was all over and we collected all of our books (Which by the way in my dream was very complicated to collect them all) we got to the fields and we meet up with Jen and we told her what happened and she said “I know! That is so annoying how people won't stop taking other people's books and hiding them!" Dani and I agreed. Then, I woke up.

By now you are all probably thinking to yourself "So what?!? Everyone has dreams like that" but the weird part is when I got up I thought it was all real! So I went up to my mom and told her what happened with a serious and emotional face. She got really upset and was going to call my principal. Then, she said to me "You should call Dani and see if she is okay!" So I picked up the phone and then I thought for a while........ BANG!! I remembered it was all a dream. So I ran up to my mom screaming with joy "It was a dream!" multiple times. She was glad too! Dreams sometimes feel like a reality.

Crazy things could happen to you! I couldn’t believe my brain was playing tricks on me! I could not believe that my fellow middle school friends would do that! I love my school, so it truly devastated me! I am so happy it was a dream! Many crazy things happen to me, but this was one that I needed to tell the blogging world!

Hello World!!

Hello blogging world! I HAVE A BLOG; I CAN"T BELIEVE IT!!!!!This is my first post/ blog ever, so i am super nervous! Creating a blog was introduced to me by my best friend Jen(as you may know from her blog The Girl in The Purple Pants). Jen for about a year now has been begging me start a blog. I always had this urge deep inside of me to start a blog. Today was the day I finally agreed to it. Instead of me babbling on let me tell you what this blog will be about........

My blog is going to be about middle school. Yes, you heard me middle school. Middle school, is full of fun and enjoying the last year before we become a freshman. My middle school life is so crazy. I am a fanatic about grades. If I don't get a 90 and above I get worried and depressed. I know, I know I am crazy (often said by Jen) but I want good grades. Middle school is a crazy life but someone has got to live it.

My school is full of cliques. Yes, it’s a painful, especially because I only have 54 kids in the whole grade. There are only 15 girls out of the 54 students. As you can see most of my grade is made of boys. Which I personally find annoying since most of the girls in the grade are boy crazy. Anyway cliques are separated by the boy crazy clique, the clique that wants to be boy crazy, and the clique that doesn't care about boys. Mine is the clique that doesn't care about boys and we just don't care what other people think or say.

My Best friends are Dani, APG, TyTy, and Jen. They live this unpredictable life with me in middle school so you will be hearing about them a lot. This blog I hope will relate to your school difficulties and will let you know there are other people out there living a crazy middle school life like me!
