Then after dinner I can do whatever I want until I have to go to sleep. On Friday’s my family and I go with my mom, who works at the local University, and we hang out at the University’s library all day (being a book nerd this is heaven for me) so we can work on school work and any projects that we need to work on, because the library has a lot of great research opportunities.

    i already completed my first week of school. i am in the tenth grade. i’ll answer the questions based on what already happened this week.

    1. What will you wear on the first day of school? What is your back-to-school shopping experience like?
    i wore a blue blouse with buttons on the front, cropped blue jeans with white poka dots,and brown sandles with gold and brown weaved together.
    my shopping expiriance was good. me and my grandma bought some blouses, pants and shoes. We enjoyed the experiance and got what i needed and some extra cool lpeices.
    2. Which of your classes are you most looking forward to?
    the class i was most looking forward to was chorus because i love singing and want to become a snger someday. I am already looking into signing up for afterschool singing opertunities, include singing for all count, solo n’ ensemble and candlelight concession. The second class i was looking forward to was TV production. i love making music, influencing people with postitivy an expressing my creativity. Also the process of scripting, filming and editing is fun because you get to work on the pieces that create a whole film and when you do it with your friends you get to enjoy the process together.
    3. Do you carry a backpack or book bag? If so, what does it look like? Did you buy a new one for this year?
    i bout a new backpack this year! it is black with some slightly lighter black on the pocket areas and the Zippers are all neon pink.
    4. How are you preparing for waking up early again every day?
    i haven’t really prepared for waking up early. i ended up sleeping three hours on the first three nights. But i lasted well through the day. i took two to three hour naps when i got home from school. so i had to stop doing that so i would be tired enough to go to sleep at the right time.
    5. What is your favorite new beauty item?
    my favorite new beauty item is my lipstick and lip gloss. My lipgloss has a nice champaign color that goes with my skin tone and my lipstick is a pinkish white color that blends well with the lipgloss to create a great light pink champaign color that compliments my yellowish skin tone and still looks laid back and casual.
    6. Do you have a locker? If so, how did you decorate it?
    i don’t have a locker yet by i hope i can still find one if they aren’t all already taken. also me and two of my best friends wants to share another locker so that we can put other clothes, supplies and packaged food in it to share with each other.
    7. What are you packing for lunch your first week back?
    i didn’t pack anything for lunch and i didn’t eat the cafeteria food. i waited till i got home from school to eat lunch so that i could make sure i ate something healthy and count my calories.
    8. Are you participating in any after-school activities this year?
    This year i want to do some after school chorus events, play vollyball, and do some tv production videos after school.
    9. How will you get to school this year? If you’re homeschooled, tell us about your experience and routine!
    i will get to school this year by bus transportation. i sit by myself on the bus but i got used to it since middle school and i don’t feel insecure about it. i like to use it as quiet time, reflective and prayer time and also time to get some homework done
    10. What’s your favorite part of the school day this semester?
    my favorite part of the school day this semester is hard to decide because i know i will be busy durring most parts of the school day and working hard. However some of those parts will also be most fun and interesting. first period i have AP world history and i think it will be an interesting subject to learn about however it will be a bit challenging to complete some of the more challenging college level studying and assignments. i also think i will enjoy second period chemestry because we will be doing labs, the toughest parts might be the lab reports but i feel like i can handle them and enjoy learning the subject and watching it happen in labs. Third period is TV production and i think i will enjoy the process of making videos and doing it with my freinds, also i will enjoy seeing the finished product of the video, what we did to get there and how the video impacts people. Fourth period i have english and there is a great teacher with a sweet, smart personality in there as well as some interesting students in the class. i think i will enjoy watching how they interact and maybe interacting with them. however i also want to focus on my learning and know i will enjoy the subject. lt might be a little hard but i know i can do it. my final period that i think i will enjoy is chorus. i think i will enjoy singing, devoloping my voice and skills, and interaction with others. the thing i will enjoy the most is the music. even though most of it will be choral music i still love it so much. i connect with the music, the sound and the lyrics in such an emotional and spiritual way. They are not all christian songs but i still dedicate the songs in my heart to God and sing them as if i am singing to Him. That’s what makes singing so great and awsome to me. If it weren’t for that it wouldn’t have the same spiritual power.

    I started out being so stoked about Theory of Knowledge, but right now IB Biology is surprisingly my favourite class.
    3. Do you carry a backpack or book bag? If so, what does it look like? Did you buy a new one for this year?
    It’s a navy backpack from L.L.Bean. My other one is tattered, so I had to replace it.
    4. How are you preparing for waking up early again every day?
    I actually don’t really have that big of a problem waking up early on school days so…
    5. What is your favorite new beauty item?
    I don’t really use any makeup. On occasions, I will put on lip balm.
    6. Do you have a locker? If so, how did you decorate it?
    Yeah, but I just use it to drop off textbooks on days I don’t need them, so I hardly ever go.
    7. What are you packing for lunch your first week back?
    I think I packed whole-grain bowtie pasta. 🙂
    8. Are you participating in any after-school activities this year?
    I’m participating in the school’s “coexist” club, if you will (we call it EDUCATE and we join to enjoy the diversity in cultures, religions, sexualities, etc. with an open and non-pejorative-judgment zone. It’s really cool to know that I’m not the only one struggling with being tormented by my faith!), and I am also volunteering at the local hospital.
    9. How will you get to school this year? If you’re homeschooled, tell us about your experience and routine!
    The bus with my neighbor and his cousin.
    10. What’s your favorite part of the school day this semester?

    The bus, as always.
    10. What’s your favorite part of the school day this semester?
    It’s either gonna be art class, lunch, math class (if the teacher’s good), or when the day ends. It depends on who I have to/get to be around this year, I guess.
