Being A Prep For A Week: 3/8/15 -- 3/14/15

Since I've been running the blog for about five months now, I've decided to begin writing weekly posts about the details of my life.  In other words, what it's like being a prep for a week (did you see what I did there?).
I've been a little hesitant to begin writing updates like this because, to be frank, my life is not always a box of chocolates.  However, I personally enjoy reading posts like this, and writing them is very enjoyable as well.  I hope you, as a reader, are able to learn a little more about me, and I thoroughly hope you become fond of these posts.

This week wasn't that lovely, but I've had much worse.  Starting the week off with collecting makeup work surely didn't improve my stress level, but the field trip I attended on Tuesday made all of the stress worthwhile.
I'm a huge choir nerd, and Tuesday was one of the biggest occasions of the year:  the State Assessment.  To avoid any confusion, this is just an opportunity for choirs to be judged on intonation, diction, discipline, sight reading abilities, etc.
I was also asked to help work in the sight reading room, along with some other people from school. Besides the incident with an extremely late pizza delivery service, I had a blast helping out behind the scenes (and I'm hoping I get the opportunity to do so until I graduate!).

Unfortunately, I eventually had to re-enter the world of constant studying and projects that is school. Even more unfortunate, my gym teacher decided that this week would be an ideal time to start the National Physical Fitness Test.  I'm not in the best shape ever, so eighty curl-ups and the shuttle run together in a short time frame did not do wonders for my muscles. 

Wednesday and Thursday lolled on by, and with much anticipation, Friday finally came. Fun fact: Saturday, March 14, is the "biggest Pi Day of the century," as the date itself expresses 3.1415.  We decided to celebrate at school on the Friday before, which translated to eating pie and watching cheesy videos on YouTube.  It was more entertaining than it sounds.

This week was a bit of a slacker week for me in terms of schoolwork and working out, but I'll be more than prepared next week.  For now, I'll go back to eating leftover pie and reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  My life has been satisfied.

By the way, you should check out this article about cyberbullying.  Make sure you watch the video as well.  It's a very powerful message that I believe everyone should see.

How was your week?

Love,

  1. Sounds like you had a busy week! I was sick for the majority of the week, so I spent a lot of time in bed watching movies!
