today i was cleaning my desk that had been piled up with unknown materials 3 feet high. i found a pro's and con's chart i made in 6th grade about going to whitney:
- close to home- can walk
- looks good on college apps?
- top 12 school of america
- smart kids
- 7th graders can see high school
- good education.
- Pressure/ stress
- Not a lot of friends get in
- strict teachers
- extra homework / projects
- too much homework
- seniors pick on 7th graders.
Also, Carmenita kids get about twice as much homework as we do! i was shocked at the amount we got, though it's probably just us, wittmann kids, because we were trained by the evil ms. lopez to have at least 5 hours of homework each day.
i think next year i will join the volleyball team. i really wanted to this year, but i didn't have time. perhaps, over the summer, i will plan all my activities so that i will be so organized that i will have to look for frustration. HEE HEE.
but now that i think about it, how can i fit volleyball into my hectic schedule? i have piano, skating, 古筝, and i would like to add art, violin, study time......... how does one fit so many activities in a mere 24 hours/ day, 7 days/ week, 4 weeks/ month, and only 12 months/ year? and pretty soon, i will have to apply for colleges, and when i get into college, i won't be able to do anything anymore....
which is why i have already begun studying for the SAT's. i know you're thinking that it's ironic and absolutely unnecessary, but i would rather be studying ironically ahead of time than be panicking in the future and trying to squeeze in all the studying 2 weeks before the test.
my fingers are just about freezing off the keyboard, so i think i will go warm them up under my butt. ciao!
