Hey hey, everyone! How are all my loyal followers doing? Good, I hope. So, I have got a lot of awesome stuff to tell you about. Right now, as I’m typing this on the road (I’m not driving, don’t worry), I am having the greatest feeling of happiness I believe I’ve had so far this school year. That’s right! This week has had it’s ups and downs, that’s for sure, I almost relapsed back to what I did last week with my best friend (refer to my previous post for details), but, thankfully, I was able to sort things out once and for all. Anyway, let me tell you about something really awesome I did yesterday (Thursday) after school. So, for those of you that have been with my blog from the beginning (or near the beginning), you might remember me telling you about my archery buddy, and how she’s a manager for a girls-only sports team. If you remember, I also believe I told you early last school year about how I went to one of the games at that time. Anyway, I decided that I wanted to watch at least one game this year, too. I talked to my dad, and he said it was cool. So then, I talked to my friend, and, the next thing she said took me by surprise. She said that, quite possibly, she could get me into the game for free. That was interesting, but, just in case, my dad gave me some money anyway, if only for concessions. Now then, about that day. My dad picked me up directly from school, a little later than usual, then we went to town to get some food and kill time before the game. After all that, he dropped me back off at school by the gym, but, I didn’t go in through the main gym door, where I would’ve had to pay, I went into the side door that leads to the locker rooms. So, if you haven’t guessed already, I didn’t have to pay! Believe it or not, right when I walked in, my archery buddy was the first person I saw. She asked me if I’d paid yet, then, after I said no, she said, “Good, then don’t.”

So, how did I pull that off? I acted as a manager, of course. That in itself was a lot of fun! Before the game started, I was just helping my archery buddy and another manager with little things here and there, and there were also times when the managers got to have a little fun, which was awesome. I got to help our team warm up a little for the game. And, because I was a “manager”, I got to set at the scorekeeping table with the other managers, which is right by the court! I got one of the best seats in the house! It was great. During the game, while we were watching, my archery buddy and I also got to chat some, and I had fun just doing that. The game was super-intense and awesome! And, guess what? We won EVERYTHING! So yeah, I had a lot of fun, and, since I already talked to my dad about it, I’ll be going again next week!

Now, about today. Today was awesome! My best friend came back today after having not been at school yesterday, and she was in a much better mood than she had been on Wednesday. It was cool, because she and I, despite what had went down, were still able to talk to each other normally. During lunch, she even told me about what problems she had been dealing with (finally). Then, after school, I told her about the game. After that, we just had some good fun (I made her laugh, then she said she thought I was naturally funny, which made me feel good) until my best friend and her boyfriend’s bus came. Now, let me backtrack a little bit, because there was stuff that happened along with that. To start off, I honestly think me going to that game last night made the already-good relationship between my archery buddy and I even better. I acted crazy like I naturally do, and she pointed out the fact I was crazy. Ah, good times. Also, and, if I didn’t tell you, I actually have a class with her this year (first time since my sophomore year, when I first started this blog). It was just a work day today, because we had a somewhat time-consuming assignment, and I was just about to get finished, I believe. My archery buddy, who, awesomely, sits right beside me, was working on an assignment for another class. Then, completely unexpectedly, she actually asked me to help her focus, since she was having trouble. So I did, then, after a few minutes, she started listening to her music on her laptop, and she said that I could listen with her if I wanted to. And, you know what? I did. I did, unlike the first time I could’ve when we rode together on the bus to Nationals for archery my sophomore year. It was great, and, I really believe it did help her focus a lot better. The really awesome thing is, my archery buddy and I actually share a lot of the same musical interests, unlike even me and my best friend! You know, it’s little moments like that with friends that you really have to learn to look out for and appreciate. So yeah, these past couple weeks or so have been a complete roller coaster, I’ll tell you, but, at least my weeks always seem to end on good notes. And, let’s hope it stays that way. Until next time!

Come back for my next post!


So everyone, if you read my last post, I told you that some interesting things happened yesterday, and I’m about to tell you about them. Oh, and I’ll be telling a little about today, too. So, yesterday started off pretty well, like usual. I went to 1st period, and turned around in my seat to smile and wave at my friend (you know who, at least you should by now). I thought we were going to have some free time in that class, but we ended up having a test. I’d forgotten about it, since I hadn’t been there Friday, but we always get to use the notes we took over the course of the time we spent learning that subject, so I’m sure I got a good grade. After that class was over, I went back to my friends’ seat to say hi and ask her about her weekend, then we walked down the hallway to her next class like we always do, and it was totally normal, so that’s how I thought the rest of the day was going to be. Little did I know, it was going to be just a bit crazy. Actually, just a little more crazy than usual. It all stared when we were in the library during lunch. Like usual, I was sitting there beside my friend, and she was sitting next to her boyfriend. They started talking about certain things that were a little shocking, so I just sat there quietly and did me own thing. However, I eventually started talking more, but, while I was being crazy, which is mostly normal for me, I guess I got a little hyperactive and more crazy than I usually am. They saw I was acting strange, and I’m pretty sure they were at least a little bit weirded out. The rest of that day just kinda dragged on after that, with me feeling kinda bummed. Although, I think it’s safe to say I was able to do pretty well on my test in 7th period. Despite the way I felt, I was able to get some good studying time in during my 6th period class. I was actually able to get totally prepared for that test, and, let me tell you, I don’t think I’ve ever taken a test the way I did then. I was totally in the zone! I had my mind on the test and nothing else, I was kind of like a robot. It was actually pretty darn awesome. So, I guess, in some way, me feeling the way I did actually helped me. What about that? When school ended, I went out with my friend and her boyfriend to see them off on their bus, but they ended up deciding to walk home. After that, I went inside the school to find my GS Crew because we were having a meeting, and I saw my cousin, the only one in my school that still talks to me, standing in front of the bench that’s there after you get inside the door. It was convenient, I’d been trying to catch her anyways, because it just so happened to be her birthday. So, you know, I wanted to wish her a happy birthday. I walked up behind her and addressed her, so I could tell her, but when she turned around, I saw she was crying. I kinda freaked out a little, asked if she was okay, and she told me she was. So then, I just ended up wishing her a happy birthday and going on my way. When I walked inside, a member of my crew cam up behind me, and it just so happened she was a friend of my cousins’, so I told her about it. She went out to see what was wrong, they talked for a couple minutes, then she came back in. She told me she was mad at a coach, or something like that, because she on the golf team. Of course, I was relieved to find out it was only that. After that, we had our meeting, and it was raining really hard outside when I left. Now, onto the good news. Just yesterday, I found out that, at Nationals, our team scored high enough to make it to the World Tournament in July! How awesome is that? I really, really hope that we actually get to go this year. It’ll be in Madison, Wisconsin, which really wouldn’t be that bad of a trip for us. I found out not from my coach, but from one of my teammates. Know what she told me? She feels the same way I do, and she said if anyone quits, she would hit them in the face. I know, it sounds a little harsh, but it was pretty funny. Come back for my next post!
