Upcoming Prom Weekend

Big weekend coming up and I am excited for it to start. Only a few more hours of school, a couple quizzes, and it will be here. It sucks that it’s going to be raining on Saturday so I think we are just taking pictures inside instead. That’s good because since my dress shoes are uncomfortable I rented a pair and if I get them dirty I would probably have to pay a lot. I went to pick up my tux yesterday after school and I had to wait for almost an hour. Luckily some of my friends were there too because a lot of Marquette people were also picking up their tuxes so at least I got to talk to them to pass the time. I don’t even know yet what I’m doing on Sunday but I have this weird feeling that I’m going to feel under the weather on Monday. Hopefully not because there’s nothing I enjoy more than waking up after after a long weekend and going to school on Monday. I love the sound of my alarm in the morning, tearing me away from sleep and peaceful dreams. Only a few weeks left and I’ll never have to wake up for high school again! I’m sure the grind will start all over again in college when I have to wake up for an 8 am class but at least for a few months I’ll be able to sleep in most days. This summer is going to feel empty because last year I spent it wrestling and going on college visits but I will still have work to keep me busy.


New Music

Kendrick’s new album is good and if you don’t like it then chances are I don’t like you. But you probably do like it because it’s really very good. I used to listen to Kendrick a lot a few years ago but then I got tired of him and didn’t listen to him for awhile but now I’m listening to him again. He may not be Modest Mouse quality, but he’s still very talented. I’m not a huge Drake fan, and his new album is nothing special in my opinion. Yeah there are a few good songs but there are also some that are pretty trash in my opinion. I do really like Drake but his old stuff was much better for the most part in my opinion. Future’s two most recent drops were both really good and for different reasons. I like the fact that he can drop two albums in the same month and that they both capture such different vibes. But if you know me very well you know how much I like Future already so I’ll shut up now.

Praying for a snow day

How many did we even have this year? Two? Not enough. I know that it’s almost May but I don’t think the laws of nature apply to weather in Missouri. Wasn’t it 60 something degrees at one point in January? Why can’t the opposite happen in April. Maybe if I wear my pajama’s inside out and freeze an orange we will get one. No, we won’t, but at least tomorrow is a late start. For me that means getting to school at 10:26 because I have senior incentive. Senior incentive is actually the greatest thing that is Rockwood has ever come up with and I’m so glad that I decided to do it. The extra hour of sleep is key because I’m sure I would go to bed at about the same time even if I had to wake up an hour earlier. It’s hard to go to bed before midnight so being able to sleep in until 8:15 or 8:30 most mornings is a life saver. If you are a junior reading this please take senior incentive I promise it’s a good call. Or don’t I don’t really care. I had a pretty busy weekend  but I didn’t do much today. I’ve been so busy lately that when I do have free time I don’t even know what to do with myself. I guess that’s a good problem to have though. I guess I’m not used to not having much homework because I used to spend a good amount of my free time doing homework.


My schedule has been so weird lately it doesn’t even feel like a Friday. I have had so little responsibilities lately that I don’t look forward to the weekend nearly as much as I used to because the week hasn’t even been bad. I used to think about Friday as soon as it became Monday but that just hasn’t been the case the last few weeks. I don’t know what to think about that but I guess it’s a good thing. I really need to get a job again because all I’ve been doing is spending my money but at this point I might as well wait until my AP exams are over first. I don’t know where I want to work yet but there are a lot of restaurants near my house so I’m sure I’ll find somewhere. The last place I worked at was Firehouse Subs but I don’t really want to work there again. It was okay but I’d rather work somewhere else, preferably somewhere that they pay more than the ten cents above minimum wage I made at Firehouse. I don’t want to wait until summer to get a job because then all the college people will be back and trying to get jobs too. Class is almost over so I have to wrap this up but long story short life is good and I need to make money. Also I’m really not looking forward to sitting at this spring assembly so hopefully I have some appointment that I forgot about so maybe I will get to miss it.

Family Reunion

I got back from my Granddad’s birthday party/family reunion a couple hours ago and lets just say it was a long weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, but I also get tired of hearing people argue about politics, religion, and anything else you could think of. We get it, you’re Christian. We get it, you don’t believe in God. We also get that the two of you will never agree on the issue or change your ways so there is no need to argue and repeat the same thing for 10 minutes. We get it, you voted for Trump and now you don’t like what he is doing. Maybe you wish you could go back in time and change your vote. Well you can’t so shut up. But on the bright side I think my Granddad really enjoyed the reunion and that’s what it’s all about. If he’s happy I’m happy too. This morning we face timed my cousin in France and I have to admit what he’s doing is pretty cool. I may not have much in common with him but studying abroad and getting a quadruple major in three languages and something else that I forgot is impressive. In the past year he’s spent more time out of the country than in it and that’s not something that I would want to do but I do think its cool. If I study abroad it would probably just be for a spring break because being cultured doesn’t matter that much for engineering but I do think it would be fun.

iOS 10

I hate apple but I also like having an iPhone because they are usually really easy to use. It won’t let me get iOS 10 even when I had 1.5 gigs of storage so it definitely isn’t a storage issue. I googled it and apparently I can get it through iTunes on my computer so I guess I’ll try that. For awhile I didn’t care that I didn’t have the updated version because I was fine with the way it was but now my soundcloud isn’t working and I think that’s why. I love how every day I get a reminder to update to iOS 10 but then whenever I try to it just says that it unable to update. If it’s unable to update then stop telling me to do it please. And also why can’t it just tell me why it won’t update instead of me trying to guess to figure it out. I had an Android before my iPhone and I think I still like the iPhone better but I don’t know it has been annoying lately. Plus I hate the fact that the iPhone 7 doesn’t have a headphone jack so I might actually get the new Google Pixel instead. I’ll probably end up getting the new iPhone anyway but there’s a chance that I won’t. My upgrade is in June so I only have to wait about two months to get it. It can’t come any faster because I cracked my phone screen over spring break and it’s annoying to use now. It’s actually not that bad but it could easily get worse.

Upcoming Weekend

A few weeks ago I was planning on going to Iowa State this coming weekend because there is a frat orientation thing going on. Then last week my Dad got a call from my Aunt and he told me that there was a family reunion for my Granddad’s 90th birthday party this weekend. I would feel bad if I turned down an invitation to his 90th birthday party so I decided to cancel my plans of going to Iowa State this weekend, as much as that saddens me. On the bright side, I will get to see family that I haven’t seen in awhile and I’m going to start out living in the dorms anyway with my friend from LHS so it doesn’t really matter that I’m not going. Family reunions are usually interesting in my family but I think most people would say the same about their family. I love it when two relatives who have completely opposite viewpoints on an issue decide to argue about it for the tenth time even though neither one will ever change their mind. The best is a good old fashioned political argument where neither side really even understands what they are talking about. My Grandparents live in Kansas City so it’s not a very long drive to get there, only about three and a half hours. We typically leave on a Saturday morning and get back on a Sunday night, which doesn’t leave me much time to get homework done this weekend. Then again I usually save a lot of it for Sunday night anyway.
