It might be a little early to start reviewing what goals I had set up this year, but I have some time on my hands right now, and I might not later, so why not now? Let’s get at it then…
- Have more confidence. ~ I really don’t know where I am going with that.
- Be more elegant. ~ …No comment.
- Try to be nicer and appreciative. ~ Try.
- Try to type without looking down at the keyboard. ~ Nope.
- Be more alert in certain situations. ~ Believe me, I try.
- Stop bothering Gabriel so much. ~ …Is that really a problem?
- Understand when people are mad at me. ~ Okay.
- Keep improving my mathematical skills. ~ …what skills.
- Keep improving my Shanghainese. ~ Got that… Maybe Mandarin this year.
- Pay attention when needed. ~ Ahh… right.
- Work on my writing. ~ Working on that…
- Keep my eyesight the same. ~ Ahahah
- Get passing grades in term one Grade 7. ~ THAT is one thing I can guarantee.
- Improve temper. ~ Found a solution! Just don’t care about anything.
- Stop procrastinating so much. ~ Isn’t that what I’m doing right now?
Since when was I so sarcastic? Woah. I’ll probably post my New Year Resolutions on the first day of 2016. That means I really should get going on my novel. I’m currently going absolutely NOWHERE in my story. I am stuck. Like in every story I start. Ahh.
At least I have finished one piece of homework that is due on the first day of school. The band theory book thing has been finished for a while now. I should really rack up some ideas for the story I’m attempting to complete. Yeah. I really should.
Merry Christmas! It is currently 3 : 20 in the afternoon. My family and I opened our gifts just before lunch. I received a scarf, mascara with eye makeup, chocolate (and more from the rest of the family), nail polish, sweaters, and a pair of pants. Yay!
There will be a dinner with our neighbours later, so my parents are sort of busy preparing and cooking some food. FOOD.
I got my brother this Minion related thing and I got my sister these little food-shaped-erasers that she collects, and has quite a collection.
AND I GOT MYSELF… sick. Yay. I am always sick at this time of year and month. Go me!
Okay, I’m gonna go now, and try to do some work! Merry Christmas!
I went skating with my brother today. It’s only because he really wanted to. I am okay-ish at skating, not that good to the point I can go super fast confidently. I can’t skate backwards, so that made trying to help him skate really hard. I’m probably going skating tomorrow too, for the sake of trying to teach him more skating with my limited knowledge of skating. YAY!
Anyways, Winter Break has started!! Yay. Time to work more on my writing assignments. And try to sleep more, and eat. Yay. Sounds like a plan.
Did I ever say anything about my report card? I feel like I didn’t do anything to get all of those marks. A hint : I got pretty good, I guess… I feel like I don’t deserve it, it’s like I should have done more than that to get the mark I have. Ahh. I don’t know anymore.
Speaking of school, I should change my topic. I feel it might offend a lot of people. But then again, what do I care? Ahg. WHAT DO I DO.
I should go soon. Should sleep later. Alright, until I’m not distracted!! Adieu~!
Yeah. There is this speech contest all Grade Sevens have to do and the topic is always super broad, and this year, the topic is… ‘What if…?’ And that is where the title of this post. My teacher said it kind of has to be about a problem in the world that you think you could change. Not really a problem. Just… something that’s realistic and probably possible. When I told my sister about the topic and what my teacher told me, she was like, “What if nothing was impossible?” And we just had this weird moment like… woahh…. Unintentionally deep words.
I have no idea if a topic like that worked. Now, I am back at square one. I’m stuck, again. I have like… 4 ideas. For the speech. FOUR!!! Waargh.
For like an hour, I was with my brother playing with the educational computer games that my sister used to play with me when I was little. It was kind of frustrating when you try to teach your little sibling something about money and then the game uses AMERICAN money, and then you don’t know what you’re doing because you don’t recognize it. I’m Canadian. I don’t really recognize American coins. Only pennies because it has a distinct colour from the rest of the coins there. Pennies aren’t used anymore. Aww. I still have a large stash of pennies. A lot being over 100 pennies. One dollar worth of pennies and more! Yeah!
I’m getting off track. And I still don’t know what to write about… ‘What if we used American currency?” Nah. ‘What if we all used metric measurements?’ I DUNNO. I should search for real world problems. I want to find something different!!
Hey there. I am currently thinking ahead of my story. I’m thinking of the cover design to help me gain inspiration to write more. Yay. Oh. For gym at school, we have started ping pong! Yay! I noticed that when I hit the ball over, the opponent is confused as how the ball goes out when they have only used very little power. My answer: I HIT THE BALL WITH A LITTLE SPIN AND POWER. My teacher asked me if I thought some of the students were good at anything (from what I see). I replied with, “They’re good at hitting high. With no spin.” Like they just brought the ball up with the racquet. Or is it racket ? Or is it both? I don’t know. I like both. But only for certain situations.
I have ping pong class later. I should do something useful. Well then, see ya! Adieu~!
P.S. The reason this post is titled ‘marshmallow coats’ is because that’s what it looked like. My friend had an intensely puffy jacket. Just saying. It wasn’t bad; I have one!
