Yesterday, there was power at school and throughout several communities in Los Angeles. The reason why there were no power was because of the “90 Miles Per Hour” wind that blew across in Wednesday night. There wasn’t much damage at home but trees in streets cracked! Again, we went through a blackout for 31 hours. Showering in the dark and sleeping in early isn’t too bad but it’s not as nerve wracking as not being able to get onto the internet anywhere.
At school, the power went out at 7:15 am, 45 minutes before school officially started. Dumb enough, school was still in session without power! A lot of classrooms were completely dark and a lot of classrooms couldn’t function because of how much it relies on electricity! When I heard the school that occupies inside my school was canceled, I wanted to go home. I got my mother to bail me out of school at 9:30.
Today, I wanted to skip school and I was about to– until the power came back on at 7:25 am. Even though I wanted to stay home and be lazy, my mother convinced me to go to school. The only thing that benefited me from going to school was that we took notes and had homework for Economics.. That’s all.
Tomorrow, I have All City practice once again. I’m not ready because I haven’t memorized the music that was given to us- mainly because trumpet is not my main instrument. But I’ll manage with something down.
