The Busy Month

Spring, the birds, the peaceful sound of wind chimes outside the open window. That is want, a peaceful day. But since I have come back from April vacation…

Spring is here, and along with it comes lots of busy days. The last entirely busy month was maybe December for me. I had to do a lot of stuff. I play the trumpet, I was in a play, and Christmas had been coming. Now I have my birthday, a school dance, a spring concert, Memorial Day, tests from our teachers, and from the state, and I’m going up a grade. Not to mention the teachers, stepping it up to prepare me and my classmates for next year. Oh, and don’t forget all of the field trips that are crammed into these final few months. 

Almost 30 days left of school until we are out for the summer, and then we’re back. That season will be busy too. But these last few months-weeks of school are really exciting. Things are ramping up, but the teachers here will start to get into more exciting material, and we might even be able to go outside and do cool projects. 

It’s times like these that I’m glad. I’m not grown up yet. It’s unbelievable the stress that you all have to put up with. So I am not complaining in the slightest, I’m just expressing myself on paper.

I’m a hyper person, so I like being busy, it keeps me on my toes. So May, you’re welcome here! Summer, here we come!

The Weekend Homework Problem

There are many weekends where I have homework due by Monday. This weekend was a special case. I have homework in every single class. I have work that ranges from interpreting data to conducting an interview. I have financial projects due, and I have to read a book. Even just writing this is stressing me out a little.

I never know if I should do weekend homework on Friday night or wait until Sunday. It usually depends on what I’m doing on Sunday. If I’m going out of town on Sunday, I might do it Saturday. If I’m busy on Saturdays too, I’ll do it on Fridays.

There are two very inconvenient things about weekend homework:

  1. I have to spend some of my off school time working on school stuff.
  2. The work looms over my head all weekend until I’m done with it.

All of this homework guarantees hours of time used for it. So I guess I better get started.

The First Day Back

The first day back to school after a vacation. After summer, it’s almost exciting. After February break, it’s just not. It feels like this past vacation week lasted forever, but at the same time was way too short. I miss the warm days on the trampoline, going to bed at 11, and sleeping in until ten.

But today was my first day back. A day spent reviewing, and reminding us where we left off. They reminded me of the hardships yet to come in the 3/8 remaining of the school year. New material, and some upcoming state tests. The thought of it makes me cringe. I know that I’m not the only one who feels this way. My friends were walking aimlessly, no longer with any purpose. The only upside in the day was not having to do a ton of work. Because we were reviewing, we just talked about what we went over.

My friends and I talked a lot about our vacations. No one did anything amazingly exciting, but none the less, it is terrible that we most be back at school. No more late nights. No more late mornings. No more tasty packaged lunches. No more warm days. The cold has set in once again. Now it’s back to February.
