Well, today was the first day of school. On the bus ride there, I found out a lot of my friends are on my bus this year (finally). When I got to school, I found out a lot of my friends are in the same classes as me, and I also found out which class I was in by sitting in the wrong science class for about 20 minutes before he told me I didn't belong there. I was pretty embarassed, but laughed the whole time. I figured out that I'll be staying after school a few times this year; I'll be doing Jazz Band in December, editing the school's Reflections literary art magazine, and quite possibly the International Club again this year. I also found out that my Spanish teacher speaks in English one time in the whole class, great year I'm gunna have! I'll definately need my friends in Argentina and Spain to help me out there a little...
I also learned that the district decided to get late buses again; they come at 4:00pm. Most of the clubs end at 3:15 though, in which the buses won't be doing much for me. The teachers I have are really cool, especially the Social Studdies teacher, and the Algebra teacher is funny. She kept talking about the challenges we'll be facing later on in the duration of the year, and then she also told us in order to go to Geometry next year, we need to pass the class, a midterm, a final, and a state given exit test. Fabulous, right?! But, we have to take them because we're 8th graders taking a High School course, and majority of students in my grade are in Pre-Algebra this year.
Anyway, I'm REALLY happy that I got the elective I chose (I don't find out the second untill the second half of the school year), obviously I picked Art. I chose Music as my other elective, but the odds of me getting in there are pretty out there, because everyone I knew picked Music. I'm also a lil aggrivated, because a few people I absolutely can NOT stand are in my Art class. I'll just suck it up and deal with it though, but so far the class is pretty fun. The teacher is really nice, a little out there, but most of us are too. This year we're going to make gargoyles in art class
I know we also end up doing this 2 point drawing thing where it's 3-D and such, I don't really like the drawings cause I have no talent, but it's still a fun class to be in.
We also have the latest lunch period, and all of the teachers from my team (each grade is seperated into teams (grade)1, 2, and 3) last year aside from one teacher, have either retired or were there on a temporary fill-in. But the social studdies teacher last year is there, and he was really cool, so I'll need to interrupt his class one day. We also pranked each other back and forth in his class, and he never would get mad with us, and we were also picking on each other, which is always fun. Speaking of pranks, today in Algebra this kid decided to take a bathroom break, so we all deicded to pull the wool over his eyes and say that we had a TON of homework, and we got him back when he came in by saying he had to take a zero for leaving the class after she'd mentioned that you shouldn't take breaks during Algebra, or you get lost with all of the concepts.
Also, we ended up going through millions and millions of papers on stupid regulations everyone knows. And then, they have the nerve to call themselves eco-friendly at my school. They recycle, yet the amount of wasted paper they use on stupid work sheets and handouts is ridiculous. Alright, well I think I've bored everyone enough now
Thank you for reading though, if you actually did
