Learning is Fun!
Know what I learned that really matters this week? The answer will surprise you. With all my honors courses (English, Bio, etc.), AP World History, orchestra, and jazz band, the most important thing I learned is that Sunkist makes a strawberry soda. Who knew this? I can assure you that very few people do. For dinner on Friday night, I was lucky enough to see it and buy it. It was good. Now I know that Sunkist is not just orange soda, but something far greater. Something so great that we cannot begin to comprehend it. I must continue my investigation of this new phenomenon.
The winter is coming to a close for us here in Penfield. In fact, two weeks ago we had one day that went up to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. 60 degrees! Of course, because the weather here always sucks somehow, it was followed by two really cold weeks. And there was snow. The snow was cold. And it wasn’t the cool snow like you see in animes, it was crap snow. Has anyone ever noticed that the only reason snow exists in an anime is so cute girls can stand in it and look sad?
Speaking of the end of winter and the coming of psuedo-spring, spring track at my school has finally started, so now I’ve got practice everyday after school no matter how cold it is outside. Anytime I run in a slightly-open area, the wind penetrates all my layers of clothing and freezes me to death. This includes training on the actual track, which for once is not covered by huge piles of snow.
It should be stated here and now that our track/football stadium is complete crap. While all other schools in our area have “all-weather” rubber tracks, ours is still made out of uneven gravel. The football field in the middle is uneven and the goalposts easily bend. The stadium seats are slanting, sharp, and falling apart. Why can’t we use some of that federal funding money to buy new stuff? But alas, it is a hopeless cause.
Well, I’m loaded down with homework, but I’m still keeping my sanity. I better go finish it before I completely screw myself.
And now, the happy face. =)
