Hey girl hey. And boy.
Ahh, last month of the year. If only it was the last month of school too. Hm…December was definitely an improvement from the rest of the months school-wise (not like this has anything to do with the fact that there were only three weeks this month) I think I actually liked it. If you haven’t read my last monthly wrappers – click here. Oh and by the time I upload this, it’ll be January 1st so HAPPY NEW YEAR! I wish you all the best 2018 because y’all are amazing and you deserve it. Okay cheesy talks aside, as usual, skim through to what interests you and let’s get started.
Every month, in our homeroom class, the teacher assigns new seats and this month was actually pretty decent. But omg, in gym class we had the beep test. I don’t know if you guys know it but it’s this dumb running back and forth routine thing and you have to get to each side before the beep goes. I was sooo bad. Like I’m an actual living potato.
We had this field trip for this club I’m in and I was just living the loner life to the fullest. To be honest, the transition from social potato to loner potato was pretty hard but now I just kind of accepted it.
One day at break, I went to the woods beside our school and sat on a bench. I was reading We Were Liars and the beginning was pretty boring like have any of you guys read it? My best friend Raya said it’s really good but I’m not very convinced. Anyways, this middle-aged couple came up to me and were like, “I’m so glad to see a teen reading instead of using their phones” like aww we bookworms are appreciated in society, okay? 😂
I also started the program with one of the special needs kids at my school. We’ll call her Julia. I think I told you guys about this before but we started in December. Basically, we’d just play games indoors at recess and since she celebrated Hanukkah, we talked about that and did some of the traditional games.
In English class, we had to act out this mini skit from this magazine and I had to do the Spanish accent. I actually couldn’t contain myself when we were practicing but I think I did a decent job.
On the last week of school before the break, I was part of organizing this bake sale for the winter performances. Oh and surprisingly, so many people know my name like..?? I don’t spend my lunches in the lunchrooms anymore so I hardly know anyone in my grade other than people in my class but I started talking to some lately. I also formed the potato squad with May and her friend- we’ll call her Claire. As for Farah, I actually talk to her as much as I can. She’s actually a pretty chill person and we spend most of the time talking about Turkish dramas.
My anxiety came back on some days but for the most part, I think I’m pretty content with school now. Except the fact that I have to do two presentations when we come back – ugh.
Oh and if you didn’t know, I made the basketball team – totally casual. Just kidding I did my whole freak out on The Versatile Blogger Award but I’m still freaking outtt. I was going to add in the whole tryout “experience” here but I decided to make that on February when we’re done all our games so that I have more “words of wisdom”. Besides, this passage is really long already so I’m going to end it about here since that’s basically the highlights.
I played a lot of basketball this month but we couldn’t play outside anymore because of the snow. We had a snow day, so I went to the mall and that was the only time I was thankful for snow. 😂 I also got a really cute journal from Urban Planet.
We had a book fair and I bought the book A Week Of Mondays – IT’S SO GOOD! I’ll probably do a book review. We bought the game Monopoly during the Winter break and we play it almost every day. Oh last night, I binge watched Haters Back Off 2 because Miranda is bae. Not much really happened so to fill up the space, I’ll just tell you about this not-so-nice Dollorama cashier.
So there was this old lady in front of me in line and I don’t think she could hear that well. The conversation between her and the cashier went something like this:
Cashier: Hello, how are you?
Cashier: Excuse me I said HOW 👏 ARE 👏 YOU? 👏
Lady: Oh sorry- um I’m good.
Cashier: Okay when someone asks about your day, you answer. Now that would be $9.99.
Like duuuuuude. Poor lady. I think that’s pretty much it for Life.
Omg you guys! I slacked as much as last month. I kept posting posts a day after their schedule like ..?? I didn’t start Hot Choco Talks either but I think I’ll start in late January to February. I have some topics in mind but I will make a blog asking if you have any topics that aren’t on the list. Oh and my laptop got 100 times worse. The screen sort of fell apart, so I secured it with duct tape (smart, I know), it would shut down randomly AND it’s currently not opening so yay me. 🙃
