Hey everyone! This will be the first time we've done a life update post like this, but since I'm kinda short on ideas for a post for this Friday I think now is the perfect time for an update. I'll start with the reason I'm short on post ideas.
The original plan was for me to do a post about the goldfish my friend had gotten me for my birthday which was back in February. His name was Tchaikovsky and he was doing just fine until literally three days before my post was due to be published. I changed his tank water and then the next morning he was dead. He had a nice funeral, although it took me a really long time to get him out of his cage because getting dead fish in a net is not only very difficult but very creepy.
So that was why I'm short on posts, because the subject of my post literally died, so of course I couldn't blog about him in that state. The following couple of weeks also haven't been all sunshine and rainbows. I'm the captain of my school's winter guard, which is an activity where we spin flags and rifles and dance on basketball court. We go to competitions and its really fun and the team is awesome this year, but its still been a tough job. Everyone is getting frustrated and at last week's competition we all got frustrated at each other minutes before we were supposed to go on to perform. After that performance our coaches told us it wasn't very good and everyone else was saying they had a bad show. We still managed to pull off 7th place out of 15 guards and got our highest score of the season with 72 points, which is pretty impressive. After the show once everyone was calmed down and we got to vent things were really great, but the frustration is still there in the team, which makes my job as captain even more difficult. And the main source of frustration is the fact that some of the people who have been doing this activity for years feel like we aren't being pushed to the level we need to be pushed too. Then last night our band director told me and the other captain that the guard as a whole isn't ready to be pushed, so therefore we will not be pushed any higher this season. So that's been on my mind lately, just how I can be the best captain for this guard and how I can push myself and get everyone else to push themselves too so that way we can be the best at what we have right now.
But besides the stress of sports school's been going well. I have a morning partial, which means I get to skip first period and stay in my pajamas and write blog posts like I'm doing right now, and it has been a real blessing. Like honestly the greatest thing to ever happen to me ever. I'm understanding all my classes, getting good grades and I'm not totally swamped with homework, but I know for a fact this is all just the calm before the storm. I'm taking 4 AP classes and so in May I'll have to take tests for them, which means that hardcore studying for said tests is probably gonna pick up sometime soon, and on top of that I'll still be learning new material in all those classes. But for the moment things are pretty chill so I'm just gonna soak up the good times while I can.
I hope things are going well for all of you guys as well. I know our blog is very small still, but I enjoy doing it and I enjoy the fact that at least one person out there is reading it. So thank you to all of you who stopped in today, and whether this is your first time or your fiftieth time here, thanks for reading!
