39 days until my birthday! Gonna be sixteen. Some people have “sweet sixteens”, but I’m pretty sure it’ll just be another average birthday party for me, and I’m fine with that. I’m an introvert, not huge on partying, so I’ll only have my closest friends over and eat sushi. I need to start my birthday list…
Other than that, today was interesting, I guess. Different?—Along those lines.
1st Period (09:10-10:25)
We went outside to get a stick each, only to use half of them and only for a few seconds. We were demonstrating the refraction of light. I guess our teacher just wanted us to go for a walk, get some fresh air and exercise. It’d make sense, since she is a gym teacher too.
2nd Period (10:35-11:50)
We did our excerpts test. I think everything went well, except for the first excerpt and saying why they are important for the play as a whole. I can never seem to get the “why is it important” part right, but at least I should have got the speaker, to whom and the meaning correct.
Also, we started reading Animal Farm. I already got to chapter three and it’s not bad so far. I didn’t want to read and I wanted to draw Sans, though. I’ve been trying to find the time to draw this very cute version of Sans in my sketchbook and also do the other characters.
Sat with my closest friends, except an old friend came along. I knew her since 4th grade and our group started with her, one my closest friends and I in 5th grade. She used to sit with us in 7th and 8th grade, but left in 9th. It’s nice to have her around now and then, it brings back memories from 5th and 6th grade.
3rd Period (12:50-14:05)
We had a substitute and for some reason, out of nowhere, he began a speech about careers for 3/4 of the period? No clue why he did it. Maybe he’s the teacher in charge of helping students finding a career? If that’s the case, it would make sense. I didn’t listen all that much, because I heard it a thousand times and I already have my future planned in front of me. By the way, if you’re in high school and you still don’t know what to do and you’re worried about it, that’s fine, because knowing what you want to do isn’t great either, because you’re constantly worried if you’re going to lose interest after spending so much time studying. I hope not.
4th Period (14:15-15:30)
I continued on my emblem as usual and my teacher wanted my analyse sheet for the animal eye we made a few weeks ago. I couldn’t find it, so she asked for me to send them through email. I was relieved when I did found it, but it doesn’t look all that great. I’m good at analyzing when it comes to symbolism, then I can be like “This colour means this! These shapes mean this! This animal represents this!” and so on. I sent it anyway and I’ll just hope for the best.
Also, apparently our half semester report card is coming in soon. I can’t wait to see it, I really want to know where I’m at in my classes. I’m pretty sure I’m good for science, art I have no clue, math average, English average and French average (I hope I passed the exam too).
Got home, sent the art stuff, gonna try to beat Sans for a bit and I’m planning on finally showing my face to my online friend (the one who speaks Chinese) I knew for about two years now. He has seen me in a costume, but not my face. I’ve seen his face and I promised one day I’ll show him what I look like. I just don’t find myself photogenic. It’s really hard to take a picture of myself without it being the wrong lighting, wrong angle, wrong clothing and so on. I can look in a mirror and find myself absolutely beautiful, but as soon as I have the camera turned on I don’t like how I look at all. That’s why I never take photographs of myself and am not good at it (I fear for the day I meet an actor or YouTuber and have to take a picture of us together, but not knowing if I got the right angle or not). I can just send him a very lazy picture, but this will possibly be the only picture I’ll ever send him for another year or something, so I want it to look good.
Also, Kohai is very happy that I convinced her to get glasses (she didn’t want to for a long time), cause she couldn’t see very well. She keeps thanking me and being fascinated about how she can see from afar now. It makes me really happy to know that I’m the cause for her being so happy and relieved, because she can see the board at school now.
That’s all for today.
