I sound like a broken record.
Sorry for the infrequent posting, it's pathetic, and I hate it :P.
It's just, whenever I have the free time to blog, I usually cannot. Either my mother is using the computer, or I have some place to be within a short stretch of time. Like, now. I was invited to Julie's tonight, and was planning to drive over within the hour. But I couldn't put off posting any longer, so oh well :).
This is what the three of us looked like upon reaching our destination of the icecream parlor, after roughly 15 tedious miles of biking. The journey was a bit difficult for me, since I'm not at all accustomed to riding for long distances, usually only a few miles at a time. So I was discouraged at first, trailing forever behind my two comrades, whose bike's were too quick to allow them to go at my beginning pace, haha. Thankfully, Julie noticed that I wasn't using my gears properly, I didn't know that I could use one of the sides, which drastically improved my speed. So after that, I was able to keep up for the most part. It was a nice experience though, getting the exercise, scoping out the scenery, chatting with friends, even if it was with hoarse, exasperated voices. Once we got there, I realized I had never deserved icecream as much as I did right then. We couldn't even wait for our teachers to meet us there before we pigged out. Chocolate vanilla twist with rainbow sprinkles. I think more made it onto my cheeks and chin that in my stomach ;P. We had a nice time once the cool teachers, whom we now consider friends, arrived.
The past couple of days have been busy, busy, busy. Graduation, parties, you name it. I would like to drone on and on in elaboration, but I'm cutting it close time-wise, and I figure that may be boring to read, anyways. But the main point is, I'm really going to miss the class of 2009. It was bittersweet to watch Julie and Jenna walk across the stage to retrieve their diplomas, because I'm wicked excited for them to usher out into the "real world", and drag us younger friends on into it :P, and for them to start making their futures. But it's difficult imagining the next school year without them. Who's going to sit at our lunch table? Who am I going to walk with in the hallways? So many things are going to change, and I'll just have to make adjustments. I'm glad to still have Amanda :), the two of us together should be able to manage. It'll just be a little harder without our buddies. Then Julie's graduation party was pretty fun. The teachers came and hung out, haha. It was cool. I ate far more than I thought I was capable of consuming. But hey, once in awhile you're entitled to just let yourself go. Of course my stomach is cursing me for it now, but that's okay. I went to two more today, and I have a few more left, but luckily I think they're more spaced out. Some things I have been up to, but failed to really mention included walking my lovely dog through the park with Amanda, eating lots of Subway, and taking pictures in the library.
Hahah, Ermm.. ;P I wasn't actually reading it, but Amanda thought it'd be a funny pose.
Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, I passed my chemistry regents.. Just by the skin of my teeth, though. 65 isn't a good mark to me, but I'm atleast happy to have passed. I'm uncertain as to whether I can re-try it, or if I even want to. Do regents scores particularly matter, so long as the course average was high? The major I want to persue isn't science related.. so I'm thinking maybe I don't really need a high chemistry mark? I don't know, if any of you are more informed about this, let me know. The rest of my grades were satisfactory. I scored 99's on both the U.S. History and English regents, and my cumulative average for my Junior year was 93.57 I believe.
I hope you're all having a wonderful summer time.
