One hundred and fifty five
So today started pretty roughly. I slept through all of the alarms that I had set to get up to do homework, I forgot my homework folder at home, and I was generally freaking out. I thought it was a sign that today was going to be a horrible day. Luckily, today actually turned into a great day! I was able to finish all of the homework that I hadn’t done in the morning before it was due, I got a 100 on the morpheme test in English, I wrote what I felt to be a really solid history essay, and I got to practice marching before the leadership tryout in band.
For the leadership tryout in band, we had to follow marching commands that were called for us. I was crazy nervous being alone while everybody watched. I think that I did well. I didn’t fall over whole doing my about-faces, which was what I was most afraid of. Mrs. Chun said that my marching was an example for the whole class, so that was really exciting. I do think that I actually have a chance at becoming field assistant. I just have to keep working hard.
Finally, today was our volleyball banquet. It was really a bittersweet affair; I got to be with the team again, which was awesome, and we played in one final match against some volleyball graduates. We were playing horribly and were totally screwing around, but it didn’t at all matter. We were together, having fun as a team for the last time. As much as I love volleyball for the competitiveness and the joys of playing well, I need a social match like this just to let loose every once and a while. It was, however, the last time that I’ll ever get to play with Sean and Lorenzo. It’s crazy to think that these guys are seniors, that they’ll have graduated in just two short weeks. It was an amazingly fun time, but it was crazy sad because it’s the last fun time I’ll have with these guys on the court. Congratulations to the entire team. It was definitely one hell of a season.
So that’s all that happened to Jack on May 22, 2013!
