So yesterday, I had a STUCO meeting but of course no one seems to be taking anything seriously. I feel that the less everyone else commits, the more I do and the worse I look. I want to make a good impression by showing the others that we can do it and pull off this event by I can't do it alone! I need everyone's cooperation and committment in this but so far that seems to keep failing and I'm running out of time. Why is it so hard for people to commit and follow forward?! Why?
Since the previous entry, I've been able to sleep better and have a better attitude on things. I know that I can't be everywhere and do everything and expect to give the best performance. I have realized that I just need to breathe and take a break whenever I feel like my head is spinning. I should also be looking on the bright side and not so much on the negative side. But shouldn't it be better to think realistically rather than think that absolutely everything is possible? Right? I mean I know that I can believe everything is possible.
Today I spent most of the day reading the second book in the Hunger Games series. I love how the author uses Katniss as the narrator and not by third person. I feel that by using Katniss (the main character for those that aren't into the Hunger Games) as the narrator allows the reader to gain an insight to her thoughts, her concerns, and her thinking methods. The author does a great job in portraying Katniss as not only as the hero but simply as the girl who was willing to save her sister by risking her own.
Today I decided to go outside and work on my tan in the warmth of the sun. I love not having to be so overwhelmed with deadlines and tests that seem so tedious and exhausting. I plan on making the most of this Spring Break by relaxing as much as possible and in doing so I've decided to read another series that I found on my nook. I found a book called Switched by Amanda Hockings which seems intriguing and suspenseful. I begin to wonder that from all the craziness, I need to just take a breather and smile.
Once the final bell rang, I was out the door. I rushed to find my brother to leave and go home. I was in such a rush because I had to be Oklahoma City Community College by like 5 o'clock to take my accuplacer test in order to be considered into the Bridge Program for Upward Bound. So as I take the test, the first one I have to take is reading comprehension which I have to admit, I was able to focus. But I managed to finish and now on to math. Oh great its just like the ACT!
Afterschool, I had to work at Central High School as a tutor which I am so happy to get the chance to work. I love tutoring the kids there because everyone has a different story and background. The kids in some weird way instead of me teaching them well they teach me something everytime I'm there which is corny I know but its the truth. These kids seem to maintain some sort of special powers over me that intrigue me to know more about them. Its actually funny that I can every kid's name by memory which is shocking.
