Today has to be the best day ever.
1) Nobody made fun of me, I was included into everything
2) Talent show sign ups got released, and I signed up.
3) I hung out with all the girls and played "21'', a basketball shooting game.
Basically, today I went to school and we had track and field early on, so I got out my cleats and ran 3 laps around our school yard, which is 1200 meters. Each lap around is 400 meters. I felt so good afterward that I decided that today would be my lucky day and I'd try to do the high jump. Surprisingly, I jumped 135 meters over the bar and the teacher applauded me. Since I'm in grade 8, we got to do shot-put. The thing is, you have a 6 pound metal ball, you lock it in your jaw, you throw it. No separation between ball and face. I did the 2nd best out of the girls and now I'm getting to represent our school for shot-put (female).
During school we had an easy day, working on a book we had to write about our life and how we progressed through the years. This is called the memory book, we are going to use it so that we can remember who we were when we're old and yelling at kids to get off our lawns. Afterward we had French, which is always easy. I got a 94 (percentage) on our test and everyone else got 57-92. One boy beat me and got 98%. I applaud him.
After school we had track and field PRACTICE, I ran 2 laps because I ate a big lunch (800 meters) and hung around with the "IT GIRLS" of my class, they were super nice and I'm actually friends with 2 girls from that group of friends.
This is the best part.....
After track and field me and my friend Rachel went to her house and we practiced for the talent show, she plays guitar while I sing. She also sings back-up. We did "Big Black Horse And A Cherry Tree", we actually were really good. So good that her dad came downstairs and rocked out with us for a while (he played the drums). Her dog seemed to like me and her mother kept offering to give me food and drinks, she seemed shocked that I didn't drink pop though xD
We raised the roof ^_^ I am extremely happy and super excited for tomorrow because we have a big rugby game (flag rugby) and we've been training hard. Plus, the coach is Owen's dad so I want to be good, Owen is a good friend and he helps me study.
BEST DAY EVER, I'm just really happy right now, and I hope you can share my excitement.
I got the news that we're going to camp on June 10th (monday) and we'll be back on thursday, so I am happy to get out of the house and do something active! I also purchased my year book today and I can't wait to get it.
Sorry this was so long, I'm just super happy. Share my joy? Thanks.
