For some reason I decided that taking IB classes was something that I wanted to do. Boy can I tell it you that I regret it. This week is the end of my IB biology classes for good and I couldn’t be happier. The class has only caused me stress and I can not wait to be done with it for good. IB sports hasn’t caused me too much grief but I can tell you that I will be very happy only having two classes for my last two months in high school. Although the classes are done that also means that our exams are coming. This scares me because our first in class exam is tomorrow and I am far from prepared.
These are my best friends Somin and Malcolm. They both go to SJR and I met them through an ultimate program. This picture was taken the first time we ever hung out which was only less than a year ago. It seems crazy that we’ve known each other for less than a year yet I feel like we’ve been best friends forever. I don’t get to see them as often as I would like because we are all so busy. But when we do get to hang out it makes it all the more fun. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have them in my life.
Yesterday I turned 18. It was pretty exciting and I’ve been looking forward to it for a while now. For my birthday two family members gave me scratch cards. I always loved scratch cards when I was a kid and I would get my mom to buy them just so I could play the games. From the scratch cards from my family I won $4 so I got excited and went to buy another card today and won $4 again. So I’m on a roll so far. We’ll see if I can keep up my winning streak or if I will have to quit buying them before it becomes a problem.
This past weekend I had a family birthday party for my sister and I. Our birthdays are 2 days apart so we always have our family birthday parties together. It’s probably also the only reason I still get family birthday parties so it works for me. I got this notebook from my cousins that live in Minneapolis. Even though it’s so simple it’s one of my favorite presents. Within the notebook there are a bunch of quotes about New York and they are so colorful and fun. It’s such a simple present but they knew it was something I would love.
