I. Hate. History

The title says it all! Sure the actual subject is cool, but my teacher is CRAZY. Essays, worksheets, projects, power points galore! A day without something due and I would assume the world was coming to an end. Seriously.

This week has just been too stressful! (I can't believe I'm even finding time to blog... procrastination at it's finest!!) Between history and math and my aching foot and this week's latest news, I'm afraid the chaos will never cease. Hurry up, Christmas break!!

Well, I better cut this short. History, HA2T, and Harry Potter await! :)

Summer Blues and Books

Aghhhhhh! This darn ankle is going to be the death of me! It's was doing great until yesterday. I now have the clicking sensation in my ankle yet again and severe pain. I am going crazy! If this last surgery didn't work I don't know what I'll do. I can't have another surgery since school is just right around the corner and softball season will be here before I know it. No way am I missing out on those!

Since I haven't been able to do anything lately due to my ankle, I've been reading tons. I just finished THE BRIDESMAID by Hailey Abbott which was fantastic. I absolutely loved the characters, and I laughed the whole way through the book. For my birthday a little over a week ago I recieved TWENTY BOY SUMMER by Sarah Ockler, BEING NIKKI by Meg Cabot, and PEELED by Joan Bauer. All of them were so good! TWENTY BOY SUMMER was my favorite of the bunch, but BEING NIKKI was so intriguing that I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I can't wait for RUNWAY!

Well, that's all for now. Hopefully the doctor will call soon and this whole ankle debacle will be sorted out. Have a nice day!!

Summer is my all time favorite part of the year...and not just because I don't have to go to school. I can let loose and not have to worry about ten million projects that are due or impossible geometry proofs. But this summer is driving me absolutely insane. Not being able to walk really stinks.

No beach, no pool, no mall (without a wheelchair anyway), no softball, no field hockey, no dance, no running, and the list continues on. So, I've been doing a lot of reading. Not that I'm complaining of course. :) I love reading. But getting out every once and a while would be nice too. =D

I've been doing some PSAT practice book which is actually not so bad! I just hope it helps haha. I'm not the best at standardized tests, so hopefully the book will help a bit.

My brother has been playing baseball everyday for the past two weeks. I'm getting a tiny bit annoyed at all his complaints about it. I'd kill to be on the field! We're pretty different that way...I'd happily miss a party or something along those lines where my brother hates missing out on thing for baseball. He is doing well on his tournament team though. :) I like watching his games.

Well, that's all for now. I'll try to post more soon! :)

Time to Hit the Books

Finals! Joy. :(

Why must teachers put us through this torture? lol I wish my school had exemptions. How fantastic that would be! I wouldn't have to take a single exam! But sadly we do not use that and therefore I must take every single one of my four long exams. Block scheduling totally rocks though. I only have Honors World History, Religion, Spanish, and P.E. this semester. (why we have a final in gym I have no idea. I mean come on...do we really have to take a test on how to hit a volleyball??) World History will be my hardest one.

I'm going to my friend's house today to study and sleepover. Most people would probably laugh and be like "yeah...'studying'" But we will be studying. There's always like that hadful of kids that aren't the losers, but aren't popular and are somewhere in between. That's us. The Sporty, Bookworm, Nerdish, Friendly people. haha We have it all planned out...history first, then spanish, then religion. She has Journalism where I have P.E., so we'll help each other for those two. It will be a full night of studying. My one friend who is already done school was teasing me to no end about how much of a total nerd I was. He should talk! Lol

I have to take two of my exams early due to my surgery. Argh. At least I'll get them out of the way!

Well, off to the books. TTFN!

An Old Forgotten Post and My Surprisnly Uneventful Day!

3:18 PM Posted In , , , Edit This 0 Comments »
So here is yet ANOTHER old post that I pushed 'save' instead of 'publish.' Argh! I'll write my newest post first, and then paste the old one underneath. :)

Today was uneventful for once! Yayy! I met with my guidance counselor (who suggested that I create another blog, but that one for writing purposes only...I created the blog, just didn't post anything. lol!), went to all of my classes, left at my usual time before gym, and started on homework right away. My mom went out to a retirement dinner for a teacher at OLGC where she is the school nurse and my dad is out at dinner with the guys he went golfing with earlier. My brother, Colin, was supposed to have a baseball practice, but it got cancelled because of this dreadful weather.

Another surgery is in the horizons for me and my nuisance of a foot. I'll be having it done in Baltimore. This doctor seems very confident in himself and is promising me NO PAIN!! Sounds good to me! Unfortunately, I'm having it on the last day of school and will miss two of my finals. I'm going to have to take them early. The surgery certainly puts a damper on my summer plans though! My "perfect" summer isn't seeming so perfect anymore! lol But it will give me plenty of time to write, watch my softball team in tournaments, and hang out with my family. Maybe I'll even give in to the SAT workbook my mom is pushing me to do. :P lol!

My best friend's dad is pretty sick. It's really upsetting. He is always the one who gets me smiling on the pitching mound. (and off it too!) I keep thinking that my bad year has to start turning around sometime or another.

I am disapointed that the College Softball World Series is over! I really wanted Flordia to win, but Washington's team was absolutely awesome. It was a great series!

Well, that's all for now! Off to dig up some old Spanish tests to start studying for my final....

I just got back from an exhausting day at CHOP. This will be a short post.

Basically my surgery didn't work. My doc is sending me to a surgeon in Baltimore to see if he can straighten me out. UGH! It is just so frustrating! Now I am in sooooo much pain! I hate getting my casts off!

Well, I didn't expect it to be this short, but I am just so tired. I'll write more when I know what is happening with my foot! :)

'Cause You had a Bad Day......You sing a sad song just to turn it around....

So I finally got back to school yesterday. It was not good. I figured "Hey, tomorrow is a new day," but boy was I wrong. Today was ten times worse.

I got so many rude comments about being in a wheelchair it was unbelievable!! Normally I could care less what anyone says about me. But they really got under my skin yesterday and today. Anyhow, yesterday was just terrible. And today...I don't even think there is a word to describe how bad it was!!!

It started out same as yesterday...obnoxious kids, crowed hallways, and many sympathetic looks from teachers. Then we had an evacuation drill to the football field. Now why I had to get out of the building when the principal specifically TOLD me it was a drill is beyond me. Some senior closed the door on me, I almost fell out of the wheelchair, my homeroom teacher yelled at me for not being where I was supposed to when I was supposed to (There was dozens of teachers yelling different things at me. Finally, I just listened to the nurse and got in trouble for it. Sheesh!), nearly got trampled, was late for my Spanish class, and then had to go on a crazy goose hunt for a teacher. Argh!!!

Well, homework awaits. Have a great day! :)

Important Post!!

I've posted on here before about COLE's Foundation and how I am able to leave messages for kids (and adults!) who are going through a rough time. Often visiting these websites leads me to find a new friend or a huge inspiration. On one of the websites that I visit often I found a link to Erik's CaringBridge website. He has been through a lot of rough times, and is a great role model to all. His mom is also a wonderful woman. She works on fundraisers for pediatric cancer research in addition to being a great source of hope and inspiration. Please click on the links below to find out more information about the foundation, Ride 4 Erik. These links are also posted on the side bar under "Important and Fantastic Links" Help make a difference!!!
