Sorry for no Tuesday post the past two weeks.  I may or may not need to reschedule now that I have an idea of what homework is going to be like.  Until then, I'm gonna play it by ear.  Hopefully that's okay with you guys!

High school is great!  My teachers are awesome and the older kids are nice and helpful.  As with any school--or any situation where you put more than 10 kids together in a group--there's drama and "mean girls" and stuff like that, but they're not interested in me.  And honestly, that's totally fine.  The less drama, the better.

I have some pros and cons to the first two weeks of school.  Here is my list:

PRO: Retreat was awesome!
CON: I was sick during retreat, so it was less awesome than it could have been.

PRO: we have a separate locker for our PE stuff, meaning no stinky shoes with our notebooks.
CON: I frequently need to ask for help opening my combination lock.

PRO: I know where and when all my classes are.
CON: My 5th period class is on the other side of the school from my 6th period.

PRO: My first class is choir, which is amazing!
CON: Singing at 8:30am can be a challenge.

PRO: We get out of school 30 minutes early twice a week!
CON: We have 8 different bell schedules.

But really?  Even though there's a lot of homework and it's a little bit stressful, truth is I love school so far and am really looking forward to the rest of the year.

I'll try to post again on Tuesday if I don't have too much work!

The Friday Post

Today was orientation!  I learned several things today:

1. Pep rallies are really loud.

2. My school looks much smaller from the outside.  Wait, where are my classes again?

3. The seniors are really nice!  Or at least the ones I've talked to.

4. When faced with the question, "What's your favorite food?" I will not be able to give you an answer right away.  And when I do, it will be brownies even though I like apples more.

5. I'm pretty sure we have an algebra pretest on Tuesday.

6. Getting up at 6:30 in the morning is going to take some getting used to.  Being ready by 7:30 is going to take even more getting used to!

7. Almost everyone plays sports.

8. Spanish looks fun--as long as you do your homework you won't get behind, and the teacher throws fiestas at least once every quarter :)

9. I know a lot of people who are in the class of '17.  I also don't know a lot of people.

10. High school is going to be an adventure!

The comments section is working again!  To my adult readers, what life lessons did you learn in high school?  And to the other teens out there, what are you excited for this year?

Thanks for reading!

Hello there!  Just to let you know, this week I'll be writing the real post on Friday because my orientation is that day and there'll (hopefully) be something interesting to write about then.

This Tuesday is not a good-idea Tuesday haha :)  Next Tuesday I will have started school though so there'll be something to post about for sure!

Thanks for bearing with me, and I'll see you Friday!
