first week of school

I wasn’t ready for school to start. Usually by the end of summer, I am ready to go back to school but this year was different. I took college classes at BU, it was a six week semester in the middle of summer that took up 99% of all my time. So basically it feels like i just went from 10th grade then switched schools for a month and a half and then a week later go back to High School. My first week of school was kinda boring and little effort was put into it. All of my classes are pretty easy so far, no crazy hard class this year like Chem. honors. One thing i don’t like about my schedule this year is Spanish 2. The teacher jumped right in the first day with all these words, expecting us to do things and remember everything from last school year. He should gave a review day or like summer homework so we wouldn’t forget everything, basically anything would help.

I think how crazy it is how this year i have to do so many things for college like SAT’s, ACT’s, and basically figuring out what I want to do for my life. Last year and the year before that I was a kid, i had time to figure out what i have to do, but now I have to be a young adult and start looking at colleges and pick a major. It is only thing that actually stresses me out.

The first week I did some cool things. I auditioned for fusion as a tenor 1 (which is the highest guy part) on Friday. Fusion is an “elite” singing group under the direction of Mr. Latsha. Truthfully I don’t know why i do it every year, I love Mr. Latsha but I hate most aspects of it. I hate waking up every morning to be at school at 7, I feel I have learned all that I can from fusion, the only beneficial thing would be private lessons with him or someone else. The only reason i do it is to sing to all the elementary schools around Christmas time. Also the Boys Soccer team had a scrimmage against Sullivan County. They were pretty bad and we were beating by a lot so all of our JV players got to play and one scored a goal!

From the presentations this past week I learned about Emaley’s Broadway career. Ever since 8th grade I have teased her that she did “cHiLdS BrOaDwAy” but after learning about her career it is actually very impressive. She goes to other countries, like England and New Zealand to perform shows and gets paid with room and board included. She is even going to New Zealand in October to perform. So Emaley, I will never admit this face to face but “Broadway kids” is very kinda cool and i’m a little jealous. Also fun fact that I learned from this week is that Eric didn’t get sick from radiation poisoning, someone made up the rumor. He just had family stuff and did cyber school for the rest of the school year, he didn’t try to steal a nuclear reactor for Russia because he is a sleeper agent like we all thought.

My favorite story at the moment is Trailer Park Boys. It is a TV show about these three characters Ricky, Julian and Bubbles being followed around by this camera crew and their mischievous shenanigans. Almost every season starts with them getting out of jail and ends with them going back into jail because they are always trying to pull off “The Big Dirty” which is one huge crime to make enough money to put theme into retirement. I enjoy this show because it is a very smart and dumb kinds of humor, the characters are very complex and it is always something bizarre that makes it entertaining.
