Today high school went to JA Finance Park, which is basically the same thing as Biztown, but with real life senarioes. Mine was that I was a 28 year old single mother with a 7 year old child. We were given budgets and all of that and we had to create our own life based our budgets. It was fun and stressful. I’d go back again.

It is official, my art teacher is pregnant. The kids said that she is 2 months, but I’ve suspected it since September during fall camp. She’s doesn’t even teach Bieber so I can’t imagine what the rest of the year would be like.

Today was a very slow day at school. We had a seminar in earth science about structures built along the shore to prevent erosion, she did not pick a good article. Then I did a lot of work in math, surprisingly. I’m still behind though. We also got new Tokyo Ghoul books in the library and it was like a mad dash to see who could check them out first. It was entertaining. I also surprisingly got a lot of work done in Spanish. Art was fun though. We think that the art teacher is pregnant. She keeps saying stuff that relate to the topic since the beginning of the year. I’ve suspected but kept my mouth shut. But now we’re sure that she’s having a baby.

On Saturday I had my birthday party. We went to Painting With a Twist and painted a tree with butterflies. It was a nice small party with a few friends and family that chose to come down for it. After that we went to Outback with a family friend and her kids. To be honest, they seem like family rather than friends.

Today after school there was a meeting on a Europe trip next year for Spring Intersession. I went to it because I turn it down I want to know what they plan on doing. They are going to take us to London, France, and Germany. (There are only 15 spots) I don't know if I want to go or not. Im leaning more towards not going, 1, because its so expensive, 2, I want to know what other Spring Intersession options there are, and 3, it gives me so much anxiety thinking about going. I do want to see the World War 2 sites and stuff though. But I really don't want to go

Today was very cold. The 11th graders took the ACT today and it was on chrome books, and since the teachers did not want to crash the server, no one could use chrome books, where all of our work is. I also had an in class essay on To Kill a Mockingbird. I think I did good but then again, who really knows.

So apparently ladybugs are good at pest management. In horticulture, my teacher bought this container of them to release a few at a time in the greenhouse, because some middle schooler left the door wide open and now we have bug issues. So she meant to let a few out, and she did, but then she dropped the whole container on the floor and they were all on the loose. We tries to get them back in the container, but we gave up. Now theres about 100 ladybugs in there. Those bugs don't stand a chance now.

Both yesterday and today we spent at two Disney parks. Yesterday we went to Animal Kingdom. There is this scavenger hunt think that is all over the park and you get like a pin or something for completing it. The only problem, all of the checkmarks close at 5. I did it when I was maybe in second grade but the last stop closed and I never finished. But now I'm hoping that I can finish it, eight years later. Today we war to the Magic Kingdom. Its my favorite park. We went on a few rides, ate lunch, rode some more rides, and then watched the fireworks. Over these past four days I have walked over 20 miles and my feet are killing me. But today was so much fun.

Both yesterday and today we went to Universal. It was so cold yesterday and today. This morning we went to Chief Mickey to get breakfast and went to Universal. My mom and I went on The Revenge of the Mummy ride. It was fun, but it was really fast, and indoors in the dark. About halfway through the ride you pull into a landing area where the ride stops and theres a persons shadow in the box and they're saying stuff like yay you made it or was it a fun ride? And then the mummy jumps out and is like lol nope, and you do all the spinning stuff in the dark all over again. I would ride it again.

There is just something so stressful about the last few days of break. You have the stress of trying to understand and actually do the homework, figuring out what classes you have the first day back, figure out what work is due sooner, thinking of midterms, having to wake up early soon, and just school in general. At least I have only two days of school this week. Why do teachers assign stuff to do over break? Just why? They complain about all the grading that they have to do, so a simple solution is to not give out as much stuff.

     I actually cleaned off my desk and the area around it today. I might rearrange the books in my bookshelf while I'm at it. Its been too hot for it to be winter.

Journal 14

   Today in American History wasn't very productive but it was a really good class. We first had a test that I didn't study for but got a 86 on. Thats the best test grade I've gotten in that class. Then she talked to us about the recent school shooting. We had a real lockdown on Monday and she actually was making plans for if something happened in the school that she would have the English teacher take the kids in that building out and she would stay back and fight off the attacker. She wasn't joking. She told us that she also had lighters in the room and she can make a flame thrower if needed. She really cares for us and wants us to be safe. She even calls us her children. I have never once had a teacher in my life tell me that they would protect us...

     Yesterday when we went to the store we were originally looking for "Monsters Inc". But they didn't have it. So my sisters found this movie called "When Marnie Was There". When they were watching it today I just got to see a minute of it before I had to do my homework. They told me that it was a sad movie and they cried and "teared up". When I was watching it I thought that it was kind of sad but I didn't cry. But then at the end when Anna was waving to Marnie, thats when all of the sad feelings that a person can feel hit me in the face. It was sad. But I didn't cry. And I also found out that I can quote the whole movie of "Mulan". The useless things I can do amaze me sometimes.

Journal 12

     Today was a half day at school so I got home around 1:30. Theres an English essay that I have to write and one of the stories is called "The Lottery". I read that short story maybe 6 times and I had no idea what the story was talking about. When I started looking online I found out what the winner of the lottery gets sacrificed for the growth of the crops by getting killed by the other villagers with thrown stones. Its a really  weird thing to read, more or less write a paper on it. So after I figured what it was about, I realized that I had to rewrite 3 paragraphs of the essay because the information does not match. Yay.

     Today in PE we had half the gym playing a game called Tchouckball and the rest in various stations around the gym. One station was a jumprope station. There was a girl in my class that was too close to the wall and when she started jumping the rope knocked the class cover off of the fire alarm and the alarm went off. I probably couldn't have done that better even if I tried.

     Today I started working on my SAE project in Agriculture. Im going to be making dreamcatchers out of natural materials to the best of my ability. So after it rained, my mom and I went on a walk and I looked for sticks that can be bent without breaking. We met this really fluffy dog and he rolled over when I pet him. I felt so special. I kind of wished that it rained longer though.

     Yesterday in agriculture we got to go outside and do work outside. I was the only girl actually outside. All the others were in the green house planting seeds. I was raking mulch with one of my friends during that time. We were walking along the sides of the raised beds because all of the ground was all muddy due to the rain. I am so surprised that I didn't fall into the mud. I tripped and fell on the concrete but at least it wasn't the mud.

     My American History teacher got another kitten! She said that when he gets his shots, she will bring him in. Not only will there be one cat running around the class, theres going to be two cats! I didn't have any core classes today because today was a clean-out day where we had to clean out our binders and lockers. I never knew that it could take so long to clean out binders. Today was great.

Journal 7

     Last night I was (unsuccessfully) studying my Biology study guide with my mom. I wasn't at the school because I switched schools and I didn't learn the things that they already did. So I was freaking out because the midterm was supposed to be today and I was not ready. You have no idea how relieved I was when they canceled school not only for today, but for tomorrow too. My sisters, neighbors, Aimee, and I made this snow ramp in the front yard. We were flying across the yard and into the road. Theres also this unspoken contest that we have and the person with the most bruises wins. I won again. I can't wait for the snow day tomorrow.

Journal 6

     Last night I had to babysit a family. So far the families that I babysat only have 2 kids, but this one had 3, all under the age of 6. Nearly the whole 2 hours I was constantly saying, "Please don't punch your brother. Don't throw the dolls, they don't like that. Stop licking the wall. Don't kick your sister." And my personal favorite, "No, people don't just randomly die when they're back hurts." Now I know how our babysitters felt while watching me and my sisters. But all in all it was a good day.

     In American History, everyone is doing horrible. So when the teacher gave us a quiz on the American Revolutionary I was already excepting the not so good grade. But when I got it back, I got the whole thing right. You have no idea how shocked I was. I almost gave it back and told her that it wasn't my test. Then in P.E. the teacher made up this horrible stressful game called Castle Ball. It involved making little hut like structure made out of hulla hoops. Out of everyone in my class, I was the only one who knew how to make them. But then I tripped and knocked over my teams hulla hoops and the other team got the points. That wasn't my best moment. But other than that today was a good day.

Journal Day 4

     In agriculture today we were working on our SAE projects. I'm surprised how much work that we got done. The girl sitting next to me is making a "Butterfly Highway" so that butterflies can have a place to rest. I think thats going to look really pretty because not only is it going to be a lot of flowers, she's going to make a rainbow out of them. I kind of wish that I thought of that. Thats a lot easier than what I'm going to do.

     I was really disappointed when my American History teacher wasn't at school today. Mainly because the cat isn't there when she's not. But it was a good class. In art we got the choice to do wood working or knit. I chose to learn how to knit because I don't trust myself with the tools. In health we were reviewing the chest compressions for CPR. My health/PE teacher put on the "Staying Alive" song on because he said something like the beats of the music is when you do each compression. I couldn't take it seriously with the song at all. I also had to explain to the people at lunch that penguins actually do live in Australia, and that the Europeans used to send the English convicts to Australia. Sometimes I even surprise myself with the useless facts that I randomly remember.

     This week was a really short week. It was too cold to go outside at school so we didn't get to go outside during agriculture. I found out that I run a lot better when its dark outside. I think that has something to do with the type of books that I read and me not wanting to end up like the people in my books. Its also fun to run in the dark. Im surprised that I haven't tripped once so far. All in all, it was a pretty good week.

    It's the last day of winter break. My sisters and I have been sick most of the break but I've been doing everything I need to. And since the science channel is doing a huge Mythbusters marathon, I've been watching that while doing the exercises.
