Well hello again!
My life has been crazy busy since I last posted. I’m about 2 weeks away from my end of year exams and the homework is unreal (I probably should be studying instead of blogging, but whatevs!). I seem to have everything under control as of now though.
Well, not everything. My schedule for next year is a complete disaster. I went to the guidance office on Monday to switch around a class, but then the councillor told me that there was a conflict in my time table and my whole grade 11 year has been rearranged. After several appointments and rearranging, I pretty much have the same schedule that I wanted with one minor draw back. You see, I was supposed to take girls fitness (you know, like yoga and swimming and rock climbing) but that course conflicts with one of my compulsory courses and so my only other option – without messing everything up again, is to take online gym. Yes, you read that right. Online gym. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s more like a health and nutrition course, but I will have to do some physical activity. This kinda sucks because I was really looking forward to fitness, but now I technically get a spare. I’m not sure how I’m going to like this course, but for now I’m staying optimistic. You never know, it could be really cool!
My little sister is on her grade 8 grad trip, and I’m actually missing her. Being an only child is weird. Believe it or not, I actually didn’t go on my grade 8 trip, which is kinda sad now that I see all the fun my sis is having via snapchat. Back in grade 7, I was having some friend issues (like they ever really went away), and there was an instance when they all decided that they did not want to room with me on the trip. When I was put in a room with some of them (remember, they were my friends), they asked to be moved because I was not a part of what they thought their perfect trip would be. Kinda crushing right? Anyways, the grade 7 trip was awful, so when it came time for grade 8, I decided right away that I did not want to go. I knew that it would not be the trip I hoped for it to be, so I stayed home, caught up on homework and TV and had a great time. If only things had been different…
I had my first cheer practice of the season last Thursday and it went well. I like a lot of girls on my team and I did not die of heat stroke or exhaustion (although I am still a little sore a week later). Standing tumbling on my somewhat healed sprained ankle was fine, but the running tumbling was still painful. I have practice again in 2 days and I am looking forward to it!
Book wise, I just finished reading the “Just One Day” duology by Gayle Forman. It was really good, although the second book seemed to lag a bit. I am just about to start the book Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. My sister loved it and the format is really cool, it looks like emails and secret documents etc. instead of normal pages. You’re just gonna have to go check it out to see what I mean! Also, I recently heard that Zoella is going to write a third book in the Girl Online series. I am really excited about this because I really like her books. Yes, I am a big fan of hers, but I only got into her because of her books. I could relate to them so much and I love how cute and fluffy and happy the story is. Again, totally something you should go check out!
Sorry if today’s post seemed a little rambly and scattered, there has been a ton on my mind lately. I was actually wondering, what kinds of posts you guys would like to see me do? So far they have all been mostly about me (how self centred ;)), but I am up to try things like q&as, advice, book reviews, anything really! I hope to get some feedback.
As always, I love you all lots,
