Swimming Along

Nothing really eventful. Life has been good the past week. In summary, I feel like I’m a nicer person and a more likable person than last year. Guy MG in 4th is hot. He taught me to tie my shoes with one hand. Really, last year, I would have been so intimidated and terrified to […]

Boyz and Parties

So I spelled ‘boys’ with a ‘z’, to emphasize teenage-ness. Yes, there’s a new boy in town. He will be known as PGF/Crush AM, and he is a junior (do I have an older guy problem?). He is in my math class. Thank the stars that my inexperienced teacher finally gave us a seating chart. […]

Varsity Dreams

“I think I’ll go distance today,” I told the hurdles coach on Friday. “No problem,” she said. Smiling. She doesn’t smile at me often, so this took me by surprise. “Go ahead, you had a good race yesterday. You got a varsity point.” “Wow, thank you! Thank you!” I was containing my excitement horribly. My […]

Food Obsessions

I’m having a relaxing day of schoolwork, piano, and the internet, so I thought I’d put up a little tidbit about me. I remember about a year ago writing I would do things like this more often, instead of recounting the events that happened in the past week. This one is about food obsessions. This […]

The calm after the storm

When my parents fight, us kids have learned to just go about with our daily lives. Business as usual, with a little background chatter. I mean, if we were so affected that we cried every time they fight, we would literally get nothing done, as their fights often escalate or relight throughout the day. Some […]

2nd track meet, 1st distance race

So this week was our first home meet (yay!), and also my first distance race EVER (double yay!). I’m totally mature. It went well. I decided to tempo it instead of actually racing, just so I could get the feel of distance. I ran the 800. I’m not going to lie, though, I was pretty […]


AHHHHHHHeijroefw’kpadl[s’bjkzfvscla;fjnxz.b,V>CKNSZX<> I normally hate keyboard smashing. But this deserved a good keyboard smashing.  I. Passed. Panel. I PASSED PANEL! dfsabjklvhdank;cmz ,s:Kcmslakdwaf;hbdkz Zcxk,.kghlu;abfsjçµ≈  It needed another one. Ok. Calming down, I passed the regional panel auditions. Now I go on to final panel auditions, which is statewide and in which you can get to 3 categories, or […]

Distance Track disappointments

So today was my first track workout for distance in about 3 months. It did not go well. There is a new distance coach, Coach M, and I wanted to make a good impression. She put us in groups, so I went with group 2 to see where I was at. The workout out was […]
