Today I spent 4 Hours Saturated in my own Sweat

Yes, I know I have some explaining to do.

  Today was our school's fundraiser.  And it was terrible. 

   This year we were doing a "Boosterthon" to raise money for our school.  Basically, we were supposed to get sponsors who will pay an amount of money for every lap we ran around the school.  Plus, if you got enough money, you would get prizes.  I didn't get any sponsors.   Plenty of other kids got sponsors, but I didn't.  So I didn't see why I had to participate on the running of laps.  But everyone else thought that it wouldn't be "FAIR" for the non-sponsor kids to run around the school.
     So today was the actual "Fun Run."  Since it had rained yesterday, it was too slippery to run around.  So they moved the track over to the black top.  They set up cones in a small oval for us to run around.  It was pathetic.  It took 6 seconds to run around, and 12 to walk the lap.
   Before we started running, they handed out these stupid Boosterthon t-shirts to wear.  I didn't want to wear it, so I put it in my bag.  About 2 minutes before the running began, two teachers came over and started screaming their heads off me asking why I wasn't wearing the "special" shirt.  Apparently I should've been happy that I got to wear a T-Shirt instead of our Polo Shirts.  Plus, couldn't I see that everyone else was wearing one?  If I didn't wear the shirt, the Boosterthon people might get insulted.  So I was forced to go back to the classroom, get my shirt, change, and come back.  When I came back, everyone was already running and I was really far behind.  So I started running.
   At the end I was sweaty and exhausted.
We went back to schoolwork, all stinky and sweaty.  Teachers were starting to get mad because their classrooms were beginning to smell like lockerooms.  The chorus teacher refused to go inside her classroom, so she taught the class from the hallway.

 I'm so glad that is over.

I already told you this

School has started.  And I am now overwhelmed with homework.  I usually finish around 10 pm, (pretty much because I'm not doing the work in class) but today I got a lucky break. 

 I have 8 classes this year and one of them is SPANISH!  AND I LOVE IT!  Spanish is my favorite class for two reasons:
1.  We hardly ever get homework
2.  It's FUN!

Also, spanish class gives us all a break from school work.  In the other classes we're working our butts off, but in Spanish, we're relaxing, but still getting things done.  I also like Math and Social Studies.  Language Arts is okay, but, believe it or not, I hate writing.  Science is terrible pretty much because of the teacher.  If you think I'm exaggerating, listen to this.  She spent half an hour telling us that we are not to use markers in our "interactive" notebooks.  The next day, "Remember, do not use markers in your notebooks.  It will bleed through your paper."  The next day, "Does anyone remember my rule about markers and notebooks?  Anyone?  The rule is that you are not allowed to use markers in your notebooks."  And so on and so on.
Well, this post is really unorganized.  I think I spelled some words wrong, too.  Oh well.  I'm tired.

It got Busy Around Here

As you might know, school has started over here.  And now it's extremely busy for me.  I have tons of homework pretty much every day, so I don't usually have time to blog.  Sorry.  Anyways, there's my excuse.

How I Spent my last day of Summer Vacation

8:30 - 12:00 --Watched the entire sixth season of As Time Goes By.  This was a first.  We NEVER watch ANYTHING in the mornings.
12:00 - 2:30 -- Did laundry, cleaned my room, got everything ready for school
2:30 - 3:00 -- Lunch
3:00 - 4:00 -- Goofed around, held a club meeting, helped reorganize the living room
4:00 - 4:30 -- Read
4:30 - 5:00 -- Shopped for food to pack in our lunches
5:00 - 5:15 -- Watched my dad and brothers play around with the waterproof camera at the pool
5:15 - 6:30 -- Read
6:30 - 7:30 -- Ate a wonderful dinner of lasagna and garlic bread
7:30 - 8:00 -- Set alarm for school, goofed off, and danced to music on the radio with my brothers
8:00 - 9:00 -- Read
9:00 - 9:15 -- Freaked out over school
9:15 - 9:30 -- Read
9:30 - 9:40 -- Blogged
9:40 - 10:00 -- Freaked out over school again, got ready for bed, and finally WENT to bed

I'm not exactly sure how acurate this is...  Plus I forgot to include looking at cake wrecks on the computer with my dad.
If you are wondering why I was reading so much today, it's because I'm trying to finish a library book that's due tomorrow.  I don't think I'm going to make it.

Told you!

Sleeping on a clipboard.  Under a desk.  How could you not believe me when I say, " Theo is a complete wacko!"

The Art of Jenga

Yes.  The art.

The height of a stack of Jenga blocks at the beginning of the game.

The height after playing for a while.  That's 7 inches taller!  We probably added one more row after this and then it fell.

The first moves.  Real smart.

How does it fall so perfectly???

Meet the Teacher Day!

School starts in 4 days!  Noooooooooo!


Today I will meet all my teachers!  Yay!  ( I mean Booo!) 
I got a pink slip of paper in the mail that told me my homeroom teacher. 
I got Mr. McCarren!
And that's who I wanted! 
Problem: Most of my friends are in different homerooms...  :(
Oh well.
