IT’S SUMMER VACATION!

Hey! So, I’m happy to announce, at 9:30am EST this morning, I officially became a Junior! I’m in 11th grade (technically- however, when I’m asked, it’s always “uhhhh, I was in 10th, and I’m going into my junior year…). The saddest part, though, is that Mr. Rose isn’t coming back next year 😥 I did get a picture with him, though:

Me And Mr. Rose

I also got to take a picture with another favorite teacher of all time: Ms. Picone!

Me And Ms. Picone

I’m so happy to be out, although that’s mostly because I’ll have more time to write- I really like school, actually. Anyways, you may see a dramatic increase in posts, or a decrease, too. I can’t tell the future! I’m going to try to post more, but I’m making no promises.

In other news, my Tigers won our first playoff game! And, on top of that, we had a shutout 6-0 against the A’s the previous game. That makes three games that we’ve won! Which, I know, isn’t really a lot, but we beat the best team in the league on Tuesday (the first playoff game)- the Pirates. And just look at the picture I got:

See the white streak?

I literally took 281 pictures trying to get the ball in action (like the above picture). I only got it, like, five times, but that’s okay. I have some nice pictures now.

Anyways, I’m off to write. Or, rather, outline. Camp NaNoWriMo doesn’t start for another 11 days. Bye!

Last Night’s Grey’s Anatomy And Today’s Sophomore Retreat

Hey. I’m going to start off with a simple statement of disbelief- April chose Jackson! YESSS!! And… they got MARRIED!!! I’m kinda of in disbelief because I was right, not because she chose him. But, seriously, last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy was a huge shocker, in many ways. It made me cry, laugh, scream, yell, shout, and other things (I’m not exaggerating- I seriously yelled and screamed and shouted at the TV 🙂 ). It was AMAZING!! Callie and Arizona are actually working things out majorly (YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!), and Meredith and Christina seem to finally be starting to patch up their relationship, which is good. But, anyways, I don’t want to ruin the rest of the details for people who haven’t watched it yet, so I’ll force myself to stop and talk about today instead. Today was actually fun. We had a sophomore retreat, and even though we just stayed in the gym mostly, secluded from the freshmen, juniors, and seniors, it was still pretty awesome. One of my favorite teachers of all time shared something very personal that made me literally sob, but that’s okay, because… well, I can’t tell you, because that might give away some private details, and only he can tell people that. I just have to say this: Mr. ____ (you know who you are, even though you’ll probably never read this), I know I already told you this, but you’re really brave for going up there, in front of everyone, and spilling all of that. And I know I wrote this in the letter I gave to you, but regardless of how you got here, I’m really glad that you’re my teacher.

Alright, that’s it for this post. Sorry I couldn’t tell you more, but I can’t tell anybody. Bye!
