So as you can tell, my New Year's Resolutions aren't going too wonderfully. (*cough, cough* post more often...)
I swear I have good excuses this time, haha. So for this first post in a long, long while, I thought I'd show you all what I've been up to these past couple of months! Here goes:
Second Semester started off for me, and that means all new teachers, all new classes, all new lessons and homework. This semester I'm particularly excited to be taking a YA Literature class and an Astronomy class.
For Astronomy, our first project has been keeping a Moon Journal. We've been tasked with watching the moon over a course of a month through its phases, and reporting on its nightly position and shape among the stars via short video logs. I'm an absolutely terrible astrophotographer, so no photo. Sorry to disappoint. ;-)
For MLK Day, I went on a hike with some fellow members of my school's Luke Leadership & Design Team. We're a group of high school students focused on community service projects to better the community.
Right now, I'm working on a website with my friend Leeya to promote community service events to members of my school and the larger community. In fact, later today, I'll be headed off to meet with her and get some more work done.
Just this past weekend, my school's annual carnival took place. Every year, the junior class is in charge of putting on this school-wide event. Millions of dollars are generated over the course of just two days, and all of our proceeds go to our school's financial aid program.
For carnival, I was a booth chair for the smoothie booth, meaning I had to attend pre-carnival meetings and help make the booth sign along with other responsibilities. Our booth name was "Sundial Smoothies" to match this year's carnival theme. (We have a school sundial in the middle of the campus, but I won't go into the gory details...)
And of course, I had to work A LOT. (I worked five three hour shifts this weekend.) Needless to say, my feet, my legs, my arms, everything(!) was in pain the following day.
Besides that, I've been going to a bunch of coffee shops and cafes, as per usual. You know me.
I think that's about it for now. So if you're actually reading this, thanks for bearing with me. :-)
What's new with you?
