on the 24th of september, 1994, i was born.
i can't remember most anything from this time to the beginning of kindergarten, but i recall my sister teaching and playing house or w/e with me, and playing some N64 games, especially oot. it was also around this time when i went on an...adventure with my friend. he, his dog, and i went on an excursion on his property near the woods. we walked all the way through it and came upon a fence to a field. he was ready to turn back, but i convinced him to press on :L. we hopped the fence and there was a convenient hole where some sort of animal must have dug to get through it, so his dog continued his journey with us as well. we walked for perhaps ten more minutes and found a trampoline near a house that was on the border of the field. we jumped on that for a short while, before heading back to the middle of the field to relax. a few hours had elapsed at this point, and our parents were freaking out - reportedly, emergency had been called, but no one had come yet. it was at this time that my neighbor saw us and the dog chilling in the middle of the field and picked us up in his pickup truck, haha. we had a good time. not too long after or before that, i cannot remember which, i had my first day of kindergarten. the superintendent was in there and stressed how important it was to be nice to everyone else and not to cause trouble. apparently that made an impression on me because my mom says i told her when i got back from school. i was in speech class from at least 1st to 4th, can't remember if in kindergarten as well. i had difficulties with my r/w's. can't remember much from here anymore. i remember being good at school, but that's all until second grade excepting 911 which i remember being in my 1st grade classroom when they hit...that's as much as i remember about it. our 2nd teacher played oldie music while we did our timed multiplication tests. i liked that a lot ;p. in what i want to say was third grade, i was moved into an advanced math program. there were two other kids and me. we went unsupervised except by the librarian if we wanted her help. our 3rd grade teacher read us harry potter and i want to say it is then that i began reading heavily. sure, my mother had read to me often as a child and that affected it as well. i really liked the fantasy and then the next year, the sci-fi genre. in fourth grade we played a lot of rough soccer/football/rugby at recess. it had rules, but not many. kids got hurt and someone i want to say broke either their leg or their ankle. it stopped them from walking for a while, at any rate. i played a lot of tag as well, mainly trying to protect one of my best friends from the hordes of girls that were obsessed with him. back to school, there were science projects and competitions, and i usually fared well with the ratings. in fifth grade we went on a field trip to an old village that had glassblowing and all those type of activities. a kid that annoyed me was in my group. he walked into a part of the house he wasn't supposed to, and i closed the door behind in an attempt to scare him. surprisingly, it locked. the officials of the place had to come and unlock him. i got scolded by my teacher later, and the officials weren't very happy with me either. i could see them around watching me every now and then as we traveled through the village. the glassblowing was cool. we went to the planetarium a couple times and i with my family a few times. in first or second grade i had said that i wanted to be an astronomer. the teacher made me look up how to spell it in the dictionary and i haven't forgotten since :L the planetarium was a neat place, and they had a bunch of interesting merchandise to boot! ah well. i traveled to disneyworld almost every year with my family and to wonderland, an amusement park in ontario_ most years before for whatever reason we stopped. i remember something vague about trash dumping in canada or something. not much to say about sixth grade. i was good at my classes, and our teachers awarded us privileges for doing so. i loved my seventh grade teachers, especially the math and science ones; they really helped foster my devotion the subjects. the math one had a problem on the board everyday to start off the class, and it was everything from that nine dot, three by three, problem that i solved by going out of the box to the seven bridges problem that had no solution. always was interesting and eye-opening. in eighth grade we finally had advanced math (just alg 1) again and advanced science. in advanced science we went to the local creek and ran samples of it to figure out the various levels of chemicals and specimen found in it to determine whether it was safe or not, and how to possibly protect it. we went a little more indepth than the regular class and tried to tell the lower classes that it was important to do good in their science classes so they could have fun and learn more. i was in band for all of middle school, and in seventh and eighth grade when we went to competitions, we played well and scored all 1's every time. i was a trumpet. my grandma on my mom's side and my grandpa on my dad's side had heart problems and went to the hospital; they had to have surgery. the surgeries went well and they are both alive, but my grandpa is losing the will to live :/. anyway. over the 8th grade summer i went on a long train trip to seattle. we departed from the station near me, traveled to chicago, and settled on a several day trip to seattle from there. there were many interesting views + experiences, what with going through the plains and the rocky mountains. once we hit seattle, we went to the main attractions: the zoo, the needle, the port, anything and everything that sounded like it was worth visiting in the few days we stayed. it was so gridlocked there, and the hills were enormous. the cyclists were insane as well. i took pe, art, and health freshman year to get rid of them. was in advanced math again, and programming; everything else was standard for my high school: english, ush, physical sciences, etc. got A's in all classes excepting art, and this still holds true. over freshman-into-sophomore summer, i went to nyc with my dad. we traveled in car this time and went through canada to see niagara falls, which we had seen many times before but its beauty doesn't diminish. it took about twelve hours of driving to get to where we stayed in nj right across from nyc. beautiful place, and i can't really go into it, but it was a great trip. went to the big places like statue of liberty, empire state building, battery park, central park, etc. etc. was there for nearly a week, but you need much more time to see nyc at all. in sophomore year there was an honors english class so i took that, and chemistry, which usually is exclusively juniors or seniors, was open to take, too. advanced math, accounting, economics, civics, biology. those are the courses i can remember off the top of my head that i took. accounting was difficult for most of the class, but all in all it was extremely easy once you knew how to do it and tedious. oh yes, tedious. double, triple, quadruple checking. writing everything down to make sure it all balanced. i had a good time in the class and could do it well, but it wasn't something i would want to do for the entirety of my life; not for me xP. in sophomore-to-junior summer, my dad and i went to california. it was blue skies for the entire vacation excepting when we neared san francisco. visited a few parks (sequoia, kings, etc.) in the sierra-nevadas, extremely beautiful places. i recommend it highly. went ziplining, and man, that was enjoyable. though my helmet managed to fall off halfway through the zipline..aha. visited LA for a short while, and we stayed in san fran for a few days. another beautiful place, but a bit chillier than the surrounding area. drove along the coastline for around nine hours to get back to LA and our hotel near the airport. it was about two am our time when we crossed into LA. it was rather dark and foreboding. we hadn't much gas; the gauge was on the E line. the warning went off and the traffic was still kinda crowded. not a good part of town either. managed to spot a gas station near an exit and filled the car a little up. made it back to michigan in one piece -phew. i took ap chem, ap lang, anat/physio, act prep (req.), and trig first trimester of my junior year, and i am currently taking world history, physics, ap lang, ap chem, and french. they have somehow made it so i cannot take physics or french next trimester, so i will either take it next year or i'll just try to pass the exam w/o taking the class. i've somehow neglected to mention many of the things i like to do, my friends, and my family. too bad. i am tired of writing this blather and you can always ask to actually get to know me.
