Well, well, yesterday was most likely the most uplifting and cheeriest day I've had in quite a long time now.
I was dropped off from my mother to my school's football game around 1:30 in the afternoon. Every year our football team plays against our rival school's football team over this huge antique bell called the Erie Bell. It was fought over the two schools for decades. We've won it three years in a row now. It's unfortunate that this is my first year that I've ever gone to the game, though.
But let me tell you, it was well worth it. The game was so exciting, and so pumped. Honestly, I've never been so excited in a long time. When our team was anounced the winner, a mass amount of the people from our side of the bleacher seats came running through the muddy field to greet and thank the players. I was one of them... and it was awesome. I ran through the field screaming with excitment like a banshee, waving my pom-poms in the air and jumping up and down, my sneakers getting drenched in the wet dirt (it was raining). I walked through and gave high-fives to all of our players and hugged a few of them. I was hugging some boys I've never even seen before saying, "Great job! You're so cool," and "Good game! You guys are effing awesome!"
I mean, my goodness, this was totally unexpected to happen. It was a great day, minus the pouring-down freezing rain part and having to walk home in it! Ugh. Ah, well. I'm just so
glad our team won. (It was a very close game, too. It was a score of 6-7!)
So, I got my report card in the mail yesterday. Here's what I recieved for the first marking period...Participation In Government: 91Economics: 88Phys Ed 11/12: A-SCT BOCES: 92
My marking period average TOTAL is an 89.
Mom is quite impressed. I haven't shown Dad yet, though. However, I've been telling him the grades I've been getting so I don't see any reason to show him, really.
My goals for the second marking period is to try a bit harder in Economics and gym. Well, I'll definetly try to do better on all of them since there's always room for improvement, but those are the areas I'll focus more towards. :)
Anyway... Ah--yes! I finally finished my college application and turned it in to my guidance counselor. According to her, the school's paying the application fee. Whoo-hoo!
Speaking of college, I was discussing with my mother and her partner, Donna the options I have next year when I'm out of school. They say that since I'm going to college, I can either a); live with them while I'm in college, b); live my dad while I'm in college, or c); try to get my own apartment that's close to the campus. I'm thinking about finding my own apartment. I mean, really... and get a job to help pay for it within the campus (the college I'm going to has job opportunities for students to help pay for their apartment rent, college tutition, etc).
Mom says that Dad probably doesn't want me to live with him (since he's soon aparently moving in with his girlfriend when the rent for our house is due and goes on to the market April 1st) and somewhat, I think she's true. I mean, if he's going to move in with his girlfriend then there's no way he'll really have the chance and time to deal with me much. But whatever. I'm growing to be an adult and starting to hold on my own. I don't need Mommy or Daddy clinging to me much anymore and I'm pretty independent and know what's out there (for the most part!). Yes, I need a little practice and time to test the waters of everything (I am still quite young) but it won't take long. Soon enough, I'll be out there carrying my own stroll. Just give me two to three more years and we'll all see a huge difference from right now.
Anyway, blah--enough blabbering. I'm going to post some more quizzes. I am totally addicted to Quizilla now! ^_^ I think it is like the best quiz site ever.
