LAST BLOG WAHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! But blogging hasn't been too bad and I have enjoyed reading other people's blogs and sometimes I liked writing them. These next few days are going to be pretty busy but it's fun busy so I'm excited. Also I have a lot of big tests this next week and I am very upset about it but it's okay, I'll survive. On Sunday one of the high school cross country girls are throughing a barbecue type thing for the whole team and I'm a tad nervous. First of all India Johnson is going to be there and she's a legend. And it's just gonna be a bunch of fast, pretty, high school girls and I am not prepared to be the awkward freshman. Also can we talk about how high school is happening. Like wow! In elementary school I remember high school being so far away and here I am. I think these four years are going to go by very quickly and I am not prepared to be an adult. That's a very scary word. Adult. Ew. Okay bye have a good day!

Reading blogs are kind of funny. Some of them are so serious and then some are just random. I don't really know what to blog about. Hmmmmm well we are doing this economy unit about budgeting in my social studies class and it's somewhat useful which has been pretty cool. That whole class has just been me memorizing random facts and forgetting them after the test, so pretty useless. Nothing I've learned this year has really been that useful. A few years ago I had a teacher who said that we don't remember or use half the things we do at school. We are just learning to use our brains according to them. But that teacher was really weird so I don't know. I just suck it up and do it so I can later do something I like and get money and have fun and yup. But academically I would rate eighth grade as a eh

I am about to go off so you have been warned. You know that moan thing some guys do? I am so done with it. Do not try to tell me some girls do this because I never hear it. IT IS ALWAYS BOYS! From what I know and have been told they are trying to imitate like sex noises or porn noises. Can you please stop? You sound sooooooo weird and it makes everyone around you feel uncomfortable. Then there is those idiots that do it so loud in the middle of CLASS AND GO "UHHHHHHHH" AND THE TEACHER DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! Do you not see them disturbing class. OR the boys who say a girls name and do it. I am done if you do this please stop being an immature middle schooler. You have been exposed.

My mom's work signs her up for Cap City every year and she chooses the distance. It is more of they make a donation and then the workers just get to go if they want to. Anyways my mom signed up for the quarter marathon a while back but fast forward to now she has been really busy and hasn't found the time to start running again. Anyways she was telling this to me Friday night and how she wasn't going to do it and I don't know what came over me but I just ended up spontaneously saying I would go in her place the next morning. So Saturday morning I wake up at 6 and get ready and I am a tad nervous because even thought 6.55 miles isn't too long it's been a while since I ran that. Anyways I got to the starting line and I was getting ready. At first I took it slow and I was feeling good so I starting going faster and faster. Those last two miles I was going a little slower than my race pace. The last half mile I was going pretty fast. It was sooooo much fun and I loved it so much. I wish I could've signed up for the half marathon. I love doing long distances and sure I do long distance in track and I do cross country. But it's still a shorter distance than I would like. Also there is such a seriousness and competitiveness about track and cross country. Doing half marathons and those kinds of races everyone is just happy to be there. Anyways this little thing has sparked my liking of running again and I signed up for another half marathon in October and I'm thinking about doing another one in July, only thing is that'll it will be really hot. Oh well.

Ok so in Honors English we are reading Staying Fat For Sarah Byrnes and I recently just finished chapter 8 and it had me thinking so I'm gonna talk about what the main idea of the chapter was, abortion. So throughout the chapter people had really strong views on it and in real life people do too but I honestly don't know. I can see both sides of the argument. I can see the more religious aspect. Where technically it is a living thing and has the potential to be alive. But also for a few weeks it is just a tiny speck of sperm and egg. It can't think really. Also I feel like if I ever got raped (there is a 20% chance which makes me mad) I wouldn't want to keep the baby. Also there are thousands of kids in the foster system and none of them really have homes which usually doesn't have a good impact on the rest of their lives. Or if someone does have a baby and they are a drug addict there is a chance that baby might die from neglect. Also people who say that a baby is just the consequence of having sex and you have to deal with it are just stupid. A baby shouldn't be s consequence they should be something fun and happy and exciting. I don't know what I would do in the end though because I think it's a really emotional thing. I would really like to hear all your comments because there are a lot of different people in this blog pod. Ok bye!

I know my last blog was about summer but I am so pumped. This three day weekend has made me get really really excited. ONE MORE MONTH WAHOOOOOOO!!!! On Saturday it was really warm and nice out so I went biking with my friend Mattie. I live in Ballantre and while me and Mattie were riding our bikes we realized how close we lived to Old Dublin. So we decided to figure out how to get there without going through the high way. We ended going through some back roads and there we were. We got food and went to that trail by the library. Anyways this whole thing has gotten me very very pumped for summer. Mattie and I over the year have gotten closer and closer and the fact that she lives five seconds away from me is pretty exciting. So I think this last Saturday has given me hope that I am going to still have a fun summer even though my parents can't take me anywhere since they have work. Ok bye!

It recently hit me that we only have two months left of school and I am so pumped. I feel like this year went by so slow and so fast at the same time. September through December went really slow. But January through now I guess has gone by pretty fast. I'm just happy that I got good grades this school year. This summer I think will be fun. My parents bought a house in Tunisia (where a lot of my family lives) but we aren't going this year because both my parents spent almost all of their vacation days flying there to sign papers and stuff. Now they only have about a week left of vacation days so apparently we are just doing a bunch of mini vacations. What they have planned so far is Chicago and Niagra falls. They want to do one more but they don't know where. If you have any ideas that is within a day of driving comment them lol. I'm trying to convince them of doing a cabin type of thing. Usually though we go on vacation the whole month of July and I miss festivals and just fun July things, but this year I won't! Also, more summer concerts. Honestly, I was kinda bummed that we won't be going to a beach this year now I'm pumped. Ok bye!
