I'm actually kind of pissed off, haha.
This is the first snowday I've been angry over, simply because we took the first part of our regents yesterday. I felt like I did a good job on the the whole thing. The multiple choice was a sinch, and I think my essays were worthy of sixes. But guess what....
they no longer count!
>:[! According to the wonderful state of New York, both parts of the regents must be taken in the same timeframe. So since we couldn't take part two today on account of school being closed, we have to take the ENTIRE test again in June. I'm outraged. So not only did everyone besides our grade receive a nice half day yesterday, while we stayed for testing, but now those tests are garbage. There's nothing I can do about it, but wow, I'm mad, haha.
I think I'll take today to catch myself up with things. I keep forgetting about this letter I have to send out to parents and students about collecting bottles and cans. Prom is coming up in not too long, and we're broke. We're bascially starting from scratch, it's sad. Most of the weeks available to funraise are taken up by other classes too. Like seventh and eighth graders who don't NEED the money, while we're nearing our Junior Prom with empty pockets. I'm the treasurer of the class, so essentially this falls down on me a bit. I'm trying to think up ways to make money, but it's difficult, I could use some input from you guys :).
A couple groups of guys at school have started up bands, Dilluted and Zero Climax, so my only idea so far has been to host a small concert type deal, featuring these guys. That way alot of kids from school would want to go see their friends/classmates put on a show, and it'd get more publicity for them, because they're both good bands made up of awesome guys. I'm thinking if we make money like this outside of school, we can "donate" it to our class, and work around not having fundraising weeks available. Other than that, I guess we're hosting a Valentines Day Dance, going to attempt a Junior Auction, and our only available, real fundraiser is Yankee Candle, in March. Hopefully that along with bottles/cans will make us some money, but our school is small, so it's hard to accumulate any decent amount of revenue from things. IDEAS??!!! :)
I think the majority of today I will spend cleaning, with my nose in my book, and finishing up things I've neglected. I've made some changes to the blog, hope you like 'em. All of the pictures are either taken by/of me, except for like two, haha. Which are the artsy ones, like the book heart and the hand with writing. I'm not so clever with my camera yet. But the rest are mine. Have a good one & enjoy your snowday if you got one!
