Today was the first official day of school! It was wonderful..(: It's weird though, my one good friend said it feels like we were just gone a bit on vacation, it's true. It doesn't feel like a new school year. Although instead of being with the class ahead of me, I am with the class behind me. So I guess that will be a bit different. I am looking forward to the different classes that I am taking, but also being able to make enough time for my friends and sports. It is a few of my good friends senior years. So I want to have time for them. It will be a challenge to balance home, school, and friends. I know that I will want to put all my time in friends and school. But I really can't do that this year with mom going back to teach. She had a good first day, because I know that you are wondering. She has a nice size class. Not too big, not too small. We only have tomorrow, and then we have a break for Labor Day, very nice.
I was thinking, I need to think of others more. For example, if someone asks me about what I am doing for Labor Day, I would tell them. But then would I remember to ask them what they are doing? I realized I do this, and I don't like it at all. I'm not trying to be rude, but I guess I just get caught up in their question. We all do that I am sure, but I just don't like it!
Teachers gave me some homework. But would it be school if they didn't? It's not too horrible. I only have a little. But as you see, I am procrastinating. Not for long. I covered my books, all except for one because the paper I want is at school. So all I have left is to look over some notes I took (Yes, I took notes on the FIRST day of school!) and do some Math problems.
This morning I read in a book I have (97 Random Thoughts about Life, Love and Relationships by Justin Lookado) and he was saying how would you like it if you were your teacher? Okay, so said my teacher's name was Mr. Simon. And I was a total cut up in his class, how would I like to be in HIS shoes? WOW! And then he gave some other examples. It was just interesting. I liked it!
This year, with mom going back to school, and with my little brother going every day, I am not able to play soccer. It's okay though, because I know it would not be good for me to put my family through all that, as basketball is probably MORE than enough. But if you could pray for me just to be content. It's hard not to be involved. Last year with Dad, I gave it up to help the family, but I was able to be a part of the team by doing book and such. This year, I don't even get to do that, so it's hard. Your prayers would be appreciated!
I suppose that I should really go and do my Math homework. (I'm taking Algebra 2) So until next time...I don't know if you are in school, but I hope that you are being a testimony to everyone you meet. You NEVER know whose life you are affecting. Whether good or bad. So make it a GOOD day for everyone you meet.
