Have you heard of that phrase “Time flies when you’re having fun!”? Of course you have. But have you ever heard of “Time is totally sucked out of your life when you’re busy and not having fun?”. Oh well now you have.
The first week of school has just happened YAY and it was so busy!
How busy was it!
It was SO busy, Obama didn’t have time to say “Thank you” to ANYONE! Get it?! Because his acceptance speech had so many “thank you”s?!?! Sorry, I’m not good with political jokes. I’m actually really terrible with them. But yeah, I’ve been so busy that I was not able to make any Kanga posts… UNTIL NOW! Late night Saturday! YEAH!!! Time to recap my week better than a baseball pitcher who threw a fast ball so hard that his cap fell on and he had to put it back on his head! …I’m not good with puns either.
Our Senior entrance was awesome! I’m sure if you’re reading this, you probably know what I’m talking about, but I bet that ONE person from Idaho who stumbles over my Kanga has probably never been to a WILDCAT PEP RALLY!
Here is the Senior entrance summary in the form of my thoughts:
“Alright… so we’re waiting outside the gym to enter. It’s hot out here. I can’t really find anyone to talk to in this mass of winter-birthday’d seniors. I’ll just walk around… Oh hey, Richard and A.Park are talking about Batman! I will join! Lalala… OH! They called us from inside the gym! Okay, I guess we enter now… DOORS ARE OPEN! Now uh… alright I dunno what to do, lemme just copy these people around me. Okay, okay, we’re now walking in. We look bored. Haha people are waving flags around. I’ll wave mine around! Yay! This music is pretty ominous. I think I over use the word “ominous”. When do I turn on this flashlight? The gym lights are on. OH! We’ve reached the middle of the gym. Okay this was kinda lame- AH THE LIGHTS ARE OFF! MUSIC?!? Everyone’s jumping around! OH TIME TO PARTY! LALALA!! Is my flashlight on?! I pressed it?! I can’t tell! I’m jumping around too much! I’ll just keep on clicking the button! Oh okay! It’s on! Yeah jump around! WOO! WE ARE SENIORS!! YAAYYY! Partay!! Arms in the air! Raise the roof! These glow sticks and flashlights look cool! I see flags over there! Jump around! Jump up! Jump up! And get down! Jump! Yeah!! Woo!.. Yeahhh!.. This song clip is pretty long… I’ll keep jumping!.. Maybe I can sing along to the song! ‘something someting… satisfaction!..’ Alright!.. Must not… stop!.. lalala… AH okay! Music stopped. Um… Cheer time WWOOOO!!! OH NINE… OH NINE… OH NINE… OH NINE… OH NINE… wow we say this a lo- OH NINE… OH NINE… alright… wow that was awesome. Where do I go now… follow everyone? Oh go outside! Get ready for XC performance!!”
SPEAKING OF XC, we put on an awesome performance for the pep rally! This would’ve been a smoother transition if I didn’t put that “Yup.” there, huh. But yeah! Circle! Harder better faster stronger! Crawl! Weird dance! Totally lost! Love it.
AND THEN! We won the class competition by one Ryan Shin push up! I think that was the best pep rally ever.
HELLO my name is DANCE
Yesterday was the first dance of the year, and it too was AWESOME! I got there and I figured out that it really takes me a while to get into the dancing mood, because YES I dance. It’s always hard, at first, to get my hands above my waist. I wanna throw em up in the air… but yknow, I’m not much of a hip-hop guy, and I’d be vulnerable to tickles.
Then later on… LIPSYNC!
Mini Story Tangent!
(Disclaimer: Do not read if you don’t wanna hear about me being proud of myself.)
I was asked to record our class act with a provided video camera, so I got a “seat” early, standing on one of the tables facing the front of the stage. I was slowly joined by a herd of different people (including this one 8th grade black kid who seemed really friendly!) until the whole table was full. Unfortunately there was a mob of people in front of us who was blocking our view of the stage. “SIT DOWN!!” we would repeatedly yell, but the people would just sorta ignore us. AND THEN! SOLUTION!! I looked around at the other tables on the side of the stage and wondered why THEY didn’t have trouble seeing. It turns out these tables were a lot closer to the stage so they could see over all the heads. Our table was a bit far away with a gap between us and the closest audience. So I was all “OH MAN PROBLEM SOLVING TIME.” I turned to everyone at my table, and I yelled “Hey! Do you guys wanna move the table closer??” I heard a few “yeahs”, and then people started jumping off! THEY WANTED TO MOVE THE TABLE! We scooted it a few feet and could see much better. I looked over at the table next to us and they totally did the same thing. I don’t think you realize how proud of myself I felt at that moment. Pitiful? Maybe. TOTALLY AWESOME? TOTTALY YES!
Oh and another RANDOM STORY. This kid wanted a better view, so he chose the spot next to me on the table and smashed my toes on my flipflopped shoes. I think I let out some kind of a sonar scream. Then the kid was like “Uh… nevermind.” And he hopped down and walked around. TOTAL WASTE OF A FOOT SMASH! A few moments later, another person (could’ve been the same guy) went to the spot next to me and also crushed my toes. This guy stayed, so at least it wasn’t a total useless act of violence, and I was able to give him dirty looks when he wasn’t looking.
Anyway, read on from this point for the important stuff. Ehm, for the “important” stuff.
2009 SENIORS WON LIPSYNC! Because we’re awesome, that’s why.
ACTest. The last order of business.
Speaking of acronyms, what does ACT stand for? Assessment Crocodile Test? A Cuddly Tattoo? Apples Cut Themselves? After Cups Turn? Andy Can Terrify? I DUNNO!
The test started off okay, but the later parts became extremely hard to keep up with time. Writing was extremely simple, Math was do-able for the most part (the last one was “2”! YAY!), Reading took FOREVER with me finishing about .00001 seconds to spare, and I DIDN’T FINISH THE SCIENCE SECTION! But I filled in all the bubbles. My essay was pretty weird too. You really need stamina to finish these super long sections.
In proctor news, our proctor was kinda funny. Yknow, the teacher guy who’s in charge of our room. He would read the directions for the test, and every time he said “When you are done filling that out, look up at me”, he would give a seemingly involuntary smile very quickly, then subtly try to hide it. HAHA that’s funny. Oh das funny.
Yeah yeah yeahs! That’s how my week rolled. The reason I didn’t have any time was because I was either
A) Studying for ACT
B) Doing homework
G) Attending class
H)Reading Catch 22
I) Walking from place to place to do A through H (but not really F)
As you can see, I am a busy boy. Time to plan for Comiclub!
