Well, I sure haven't written on here for a while. I really don't know what to say, except that I just realized this morning how long it has been and I was sort of drawn to make a post. I'm a little bit guilty, for being such a bitch to Brenna, but it made me so angry that she wouldn't give me a ride that would take less than 5 minutes to Amanda's house. She made me walk, and it was really crappy weather outside. The only plus side to the whole thing was that the birds were singing and I saw a woodpecker hammering away at a tree. But I was pissed the whole day, and Mom thought it was a little weird that Brenna refused me a simple ride as well. Whatever. The whole thing's over with.
I really feel like I need to stop procrastinating. Mr. Ingram, my global economics teacher, is really piling on a lot of work, such as a HUGE project that none of us had enough time to do (what with work from other classes), and I had to scramble to put everything together in time. The essay itself was late, because I finished it after school in about 30 minutes and emailed it to him. Also, he just assigned another supposedly "easy" project about our local surroundings that I personally deem pointless. Mrs. Olson (honors English) assigned a literary circle project, which I don't have time to do either. I will thank the stars when this year is over and I can just have fun.
Dad took me driving yesterday in a school parking lot (there were no people there, it was the weekend). I was really nervous, and I'm really bad at simultaneously steering and keeping my speed where it's comfortable. I did alright though, except for a few jerky stops where I underestimated the strength of the break and almost sent Dad careening through the windshield. Overall I did pretty good, and I hope he takes me out again today. Speaking of learning how to drive, Mom and Dad signed me up for the local Driver's Ed class, taught by the school. Both Cory and Brenna took it. It's heinously expensive, however. It starts on June 1 and goes through June 5. Let's hope that I don't kill 10 drivers (or pedestrians) between then.
