What I’ve Been Up To

10 Apr

Hey again folks! (I know, no one reads my blog. But I’m just sure that one day, I’ll be one of those massively popular bloggers that has tens upon twenties of readers! Very ambitious of me. But You gotta stay optimistic y’know? I’ll just pretend for now). Anyways, since its been a billion years since I posted anything new, I’ll just list everything that I’ve been up to lately.

1. I AM SUFFERING a very severe case of senioritis (which is pretty pitiful when you consider that I only go into an actual classroom one day a week). Since I’m homeschooled though, and studied through the summer, I’ll be graduating in May istead of June ;D

2. While we’re on the subject of class, I’m pretty sure that my class this year has met the legal record for most days of school missed. At first, it was due to all of the crazy weather we got here in January. Down here, if we see a single snowflake, school is cancelled.  Then, there were a few classes where we had holiday. But the bulk of missing has been because of “prior engagements” (read as “free day off”).

3. I’m almost done with my enlistment process. Its taken longer than I thought it would, but I don’t mind.

4. I STILL don’t have my liscense -_-. But, its not just me anymore! I found out while out with my best friend on her birthday, that out of the group of the 4 of us, not one of us has our liscense! And we’re all 18 now. I know, sad. We made a bet back in January to see who could get their liscense first. So far, no one has one. It’s frickin’ April, and none of us are driving -_-. One of the girls has a 16 year old sister who is driving for cryin’ out loud!

5. I won tickets on the radio again 😀 hehehe. Matchbox 20 this time. Now all I have to do is learn all of their songs by the concert in August and I’ll be set.

6. I really want to take up self defense or a martial art and now I’m at a place where I can. I’m specifically interested in Krav Maga and Boxing right now. I have been searching for a half decent gym that isn’t trying to rip me off and has legitimately qualified trainers that know what they’re doing, but I haven’t found one yet.  It seems like everybody and their grandmother runs an MMA/BJJ gym. I literally counted seven within a ten mile radius yesterday. So if anyone knows of any in the Charlotte metro area, hit me up.

7. I’m going to prom now. Which, y’know, kinda sucks on account of the fact that I have a very serious condition called chorophobia aka fear of dancing. (Its real, I searched it on Google. I blame my parents for this). Since I’m homeschooled I almost got off scott free this year! Then, my best friend asked me, on her birthday, if I wanted to go with her. x( Well, of course I had to say yes! It was her birthday for Pete’s sake! So now, I am headed off to face that night. On the plus side, I found an awesome dress, since she wouldn’t let me wear my t-shirt/ Also a plus, I get to wear whatever shoes I want :D. At first, I was gonna get some sequins Chucks to match my dress, but they only sell them online and I waited too long. Plus, when am I ever gonna wear sequins anything again? So I went with some simple black vans with pink shoelaces (because wearing tennis shoes just wouldn’t be drawing enough attention to myself already).

8. To get over my chorophobia, I’ve been doing a lot more of it lately. I’ve done the Electric Slide, Cha Cha Slide, and Cupid Shuffle more times in the last 2 months than I care to count. I’ve also come to realize something during these last few months: I dance like Ellen DeGeneres. It works for her, not sure if I’m pulling it off though. Ah well. At least I know that once I get past this, I’ll never have to dance in public again.

      you’d think so but, it just doesn’t look as good on some people. And I’m going Army National Guard.
