Minimum Day March 2, 2005
School started twenty minutes early today, since it was a minimum block day and we get out at lunch. I planned on doing my speech, since today was the day jose and I volunteered for, but time ran out, and joseph was the last one to speak. We brought props and I was mentally ready too.
The next period, Mrs. Blake made the block period one of the most interesting periods I’ve had this year. Last week we were given slip on which we each wrote three secrets or facts about us nobody knows about. Today, she handed us sheets of paper with a grid containing one of everyone’s secrets. We then spent the entire period going around and trying to guess someone’s secret within three tries. If we get it right, they sign the box, but if wrong, you move on to someone else. You can look at a scanned copy of the secrets sheet we got today:
Sixth period, we had a sub again. I hope the teacher isn’t even more depressing than he was before when he gets back. I feel really bad for him though. Everyone just sat around and slacked, including people watching some weird video on a classmate’s laptop. I drew another masterpiece on the back blackboard. Last time it was an awesomely realistic cow. This time, I drew a Bob Ross style piece of work, and impressed everyone in the room of course.
After school, Ben and I discovered we had a common impulsive urge to eat chalupas. We got everyone except ditha (who had some debate meeting) and jose (he had traffic court) to go with us to Taco Bell. We both got three chalupas each, and went back to the car. Finishing up lunch, we drove over to armadillo music and looked around in the bargain bin. We then split up, and everyone went their own way.
When I got home, I printed out the yahoo free ice cream cone coupon (free ice cream at baskin robbins for yahoo’s 10th birthday). I planned to go use it before practice, but I stayed in too late talking on AIM, so I guess I won’t use it after all. I dont mind much though. Practice started off with a kid from yearbook taking a team picture. For most of practice, I played with a 30 year old who used to play for a college team.
Tomorrow we play Armijo after school, and right after the match, we’re heading down to Fresno for a tournament until saturday night. Until then, this blog isn’t going to be updated. When I get back though, I’m going to have tons of pictures of all the memories and fun times we had. Last year, joseph and I went in the middle of the night and watched passion of the christ. We always have a ton of fun living by ourselves in some hotel away from the coach and all intelligent life.
Until then. Goodbye.
