This week is just like any other busy week. This is the final week of yearbook- which means everything must be ‘perfected’ and submitted. I probably worked harder than most of the others in the group in the last few days. I made some “last minute” additions to the book because there were a lot of blank pages last week& I had to come up with some ideas for the pages. I ended up working on a mock Facebook & Twitter, school timeline of events, random students, staffs in the moment, students in uniforms, student lead meetings, beyond the bell, and plenty of other pages. Best of it all, I had the honor of clicking “submit” to the final page too!
As far as my grades go this semester, I’m picking it up- better than any other semesters in my high school life. Though- my grade dropped from a 94% to a 88% in Government because I didn’t catch the assignment I missed from the Vegas trip. On the bright side, I went from a C to a B- in AP Literature. It’s somewhat balanced out because somehow, around half of the students in both classes are failing in the time being.
In Physiology class, we were assigned a powerpoint project that requires a partner to do. This is one of those classes where I can’t socialize with much people except for a couple of others. Being the loner I am, I was going to be stuck with someone who shows up to class once a week.. Instead of giving in, I spoke out to the teacher and I got the opportunity to work alone! I only spent 2 hours working on the project and I volunteered to present first. It turned out great because I didn’t really need to read off the slides and others thought I knew everything (which I didn’t ;P).
Right now, Band is pretty much coming to an end for me. My band director received a RIF notice (basically a layoff slip) this year- and the years before. Budget cuts in Los Angeles is getting pretty intense because Adult Education, afterschool programs, music education, and other programs are getting cut. It’s something no one wants to face, but I’m hoping it’s just a plan that will backfire later on without the programs being affected..
As far as everything in life goes, I’m doing fine. It’s still March- I have a long way to go until graduation hits.
