Schools getting easier now but I can’t breathe just yet, gotta wait until my AP classes are either As or Bs yet.. It’s the only thing thats I’m worried about. They are the only things thats keeping me from staying w/ my after school activities… my goodness.. and with pep rally coming so soon, i need the practice
Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.
She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”
Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.
However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”
My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.
Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)
I’m halfway there :]. And I feel so much more accomplished today than yesterday. Everything was easy today and I didn’t have the feeling of insecurity of not knowing what I was doing looming over me. I’m happy that my english final was over with but now I have a english analytical essay due. I’m happy I understand math more than any other subject I have. I’m content and now to study up on probably the hardest test of the week. Wish me luck :]!
AP Chem was something I’m most proud of :]. I’m just now understanding it and its been pretty incredible how much I’ve been getting it. Its been a struggle trying to pull through but now I get what I’m learning, just as long as I ask a ton of questions xD. I feel like I’ve been taking up most of my teacher’s time, but honestly its worth it :].
Spanish though, rough. I had the hardest time with the conjugations and the vocabulary. The first couple questions were as hard as it is. And listening to spanish, even worse. I just can’t get it. I don’t understand it and I’m now going to sacrifice my time from my computer and home to get tutoring every Tuesday and Wednesday from now on. Until I can get my A. Only then will my mom trust me with staying after school.
But to be honest its not the after school activities pulling me down, its the time I spend on my computer. Its time that I take to just relax and I always take it for granted. I spend on time on the computer when I should be studying or doing homework. Thats my goal this year, to focus more on my studies. Sacrificing going on the comp everyday so I can study, but ill take my time to blog about my personal life one day at a time.
