I'm working on decluttering my life (thank you, Thoreau), and I figured I should start with my mind.
Work: As most of you know, I'm taking a sabbatical (lol) from work for this semester... and I just got a raise. Boo. Why do I have to leave when I get a raise? Anyway, I'm coming back in the summer if I don't find a better job (probably won't) and if they'll take me (I think they will). I had my evaluation today which is why I got the raise. My other boss told me she wishes I could work more hours because I'm a hard worker and then I told her that I was taking a leave of absence. Lol. Working there is actually getting better. I adore the residents, and I think that they adore me, too. Anne gave me two candy bars today. She is just about the cutest old lady I have ever seen (almost as cute as the Badi Mummy), and she kept yelling at herself because she forgot my candy bars. I'm gonna miss her this semester.
Spanish: At the beginning of the year, I really did not like my Spanish class. I thought we moved too slowly and that the people in my class were awful. I'm really beginning to love this class... Yes, most of my friends are in 4/5, but I'm a little bit glad I'm not in that class. Our class is not extremely loud, and we still have a lot of fun. We can get away with just about anything in that class, and it's given me an opportunity to get to know people that I normally wouldn't ineract with a lot better.
Econ: I can't believe we're leaving this class... It's really been a lot of fun, definitely one of if not my favorite class in high school. Mr. Miller is just crazy. I'll leave it at that. MMM
My grandma: I love her, but sometimes it's hard to deal with her. I can never do anything right and I'm constantly getting lectures on what I should be doing. But, I, like everyone else in my family, have learned to deal with this. I love her soo much, and it kills me that she's losing her hearing. I don't we don't communicate too effectively, but it's still beter than nothing. Now, it's so hard for me to get her to understand me becaus eshe can't even hear what I'm saying.
My birthday: I had a really crappy morning on my birthday and coming to school definitely made it better. Thank you friends for giving me a wonderful birthday. Even if I had to blow out toothpicks. Also, thank you Ethan for throwing me that party. I agree that we need to hang out with that group more often.. I really had a lot of fun then and at my new year's eve party and I hope that everyone else did, too.
Finals: I hate finals. Last year I learned that if I study, I'll do surprisingly well. Except this year, I really need to study and I don't have time.
SO: I'm definitely not ready for Riley, but I'm working on it. I really hope we make it to nationals this year. Let's not slack off.
