we are the champions

So yes, we the seventh graders finished the dreaded but painfully easy state testing. This past week has been very simple; no homework has been assigned, except motherhood. But motherhood isn't exactly what you call "simple".

According to my health teacher, I'm a married teacher with a $65, 000 salary, and I have a baby girl named Charlie.

I have a pretty good weekend ahead of me for the most part....a track meet and the local music&arts festival. Hopefully the track meet has good results...

Well, I'm supposed to be doing volcano research right now (during recess, haha), but my teacher is across the room and couldn't care less.  My friends are looking up "yo mama" jokes and drunk pictures of celebrities. Yep, we're cool.

Sorry that this post isn't as long, but I have to head to gym class. Have a nice weekend!

lost in isolation

random picture from tumblr.

So, I feel like Emily Dickinson (not in the poetic way, but in the hermit way), because I haven't been out of the house all weekend. I feel disgusting. My desk is cluttered and the contents of my school bag are all over the place. I have some cleaning to do...

State testing starts on Tuesday, and I'm not really nervous. I find it strange how specific the instructions are in the packets, like "Fill in your name in the bubbles below ONCE, then wait for your teacher to tell you what to do next. Do NOT turn the page!". Considering that some sort of machine grades these tests, you'd think that the people who actually take them are not slow-minded. I'm probably not making any sense here, but still.

On Thursday, I have track, and my flour-baby assignment starts. For two weeks I have to carry around a five-pound sack of flour, and write daily journal entries. My health teacher has to come up with scenarios for all of us (thank God that we're not being paired up, because one kid asked if we had to breast feed our "babies"). Hopefully I'm a single mom; being stuck with an imaginary spouse will suck.

Well, sorry for the short post, but there's not really that much going on at the moment.
I'll try to make a new post during the week.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

the time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time

my inspiration wire.

I hope the title clears things up! I haven't posted in a while, I know. These past few days have been crazy; the madness of enjoying the last days of spring break and going back to school feeling exhausted. Sleeping in is not an option on Monday morning, but somehow getting an enormous load of homework is okay? State testing is next week, and then I only have a few more weeks of seventh grade left.

I guess I had a pretty good spring break...the first few days were spent on Tumblr (shocker) and watching Winona Ryder movies (Girl, Interrupted and Reality Bites).  The second season of Glee premiered, too, and Nurse Jackie is getting good.

My dad came to visit on Thursday, so I got to spend the weekend with him, which was a nice way to end break. My cousin Chris came along too, and we had a lot of fun in New York.

I'm going to close this post using a video...enjoy your week and the musical stylings of Hayley Williams!

here comes the sun


April is here, and the sun decided to come out too.
Hallelujah.

Before I launch into the usual "sorry I've been busy" excuse, let me say that I have been writing this post since Tuesday. A big accomplishment, I know. I haven't been posting very much this month.

After weeks of anticipation, spring break is finally here! I only get a week off, but it's better than nothing. Walking around town, going on Tumblr, and spending time with my dad sounds good to me.

On Friday, I went to my friend's birthday/dance party. It was fun, and I got to see some old friends, but I can't dance even if my life depended on it (I only knew a few songs, and danced whole-heartedly to Hoedown Throwdown). Yep, laugh if you want.

I watched Surrogates last night, and it really creeped me out, and paranoia started to cease, like "Oh no what if this happens in the future, what if we completely confide in technology and society begins to fall apart...". Let's just say that Bruce Willis really made the future look even brighter.

Well, that's all for today. New post in a few days, I promise!

Enjoy your week!
