I have a rookie teacher this year in my English Class English Literature and Compostition (AP LIT and COMP)
So I enjoy making her day interesting (as well as learning while I'm there) of course!
She made a Twitter account to have more ways to tell us about homework.
So I went home the first day she made that account. I made another account under her name.
So all my classmates followed me instead of her! I tweeted things like " Hey AP LIT you guys have a surprise essay due tomorrow! It's 100 % of your grade! Enjoy!"
We have a field trip which is taking all of my teachers English classes to Richmand to see a Grapes of Wrath play. So I tweeted,
"Maybe we can ditch the Sophmores on our Field Trip! #AshamedofThem" The Sophmores came in and were asking her, "Why do you not want to bring us the field trip?"
So she got on Twitter and found my account. She immediately suspected me but the conformation was my tweet "No Homework today! Except planning Nathan Hersey's birthday party Friday! There might be extra credit for bringing food!"
I love making school interesting!
Today a gunman came into an elementary school and shot 20 kids and 6 adults. I first of all want to express my sadness for all of the lives lost.
It was really interesting to see the different reactions from my two friend groups. I am on twitter and follow my classmates. I am also on facebook with almost no classmates as my friends.
I got on Twitter after school today seeing people tweet things like "I wish he (the shooter) hadn't died so he could have been tortured"
I get on Facebook and see a much different approach. I saw friends on Facebook say we should pray for not only the kids, but the shooter as well.
I find the contrast in attitude toward that 20 year old evildoer extremely interesting.
Eze 18:31 "Cast away from you all your transgressions which you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! For why will you die, O house of Israel?
32 "For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies," declares the Lord GOD. "Therefore, repent and live."
We have a God who hates sin but still loves his people. It is amazing because our first reaction is too want revenge but God will take care of it.
I am so glad I am not a judge or a person in authority in deciding someones fate. I would be too biased. I would want them to suffer for what they have done.
I think about myself. God could look at me and want me to suffer for the mistakes i've made. I haven't even thought about killing one person let alone killing 26 people.
Tit 2:11 ¶ For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men,
12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age,"
Its been a while but I am still alive.
I am super ready for Thanksgiving break. School is kinda fun but man I'd love a break.
I am dissipointed in all my sports teams right now. Arkansas is the biggest cause I had championship hopes. CRUSHED.
Pacers are eh doing worse than they should. Oh well. Life is more than sports. I am makin leaps and bounds in guitar learnin my song that was my goal.
Um can't wait for golf season to start up. I love being a only child. I am spoiled right now. All I gotta do is ask for cookies and somebody makes em. Hey not complainin
One of these days I'll write about somethin important
and that's all she wrote
I got my wisdom teeth taken out Friday.
My anatomy class had me take a picture of myself afterwards so they could see how swollen I became. The sad thing is that I probably didn't need to take a picture. I am plenty swollen now.
The funniest thing about the whole time though is I was texting Bethany Sulc after the procedure on the way home. I'll quote it for ya.
Me-"Hahahahahahaha im on drugs. Where is my chin!
When me knowen you find my chin tell me"
(later Mom took away my phone so I wouldn't embarress her :) )Me- I was loopy on drugs when I texted you
I crack myself up. :)
I haven't taken advantage like I could have from all the special treatment from mom.
I as you probably figured am a junior now. It is cool being upperclassman now. I have a pretty good schedule this year.
1. Anatomy & Physiology
2. Study Hall
3. U.S. History
5. Gym (Conditioning)
7. AP Literature
I am super happy to have a study hall. It already takes down the stress like by half.
I find myself playing tennis after school with some of the golf guys. We are pretty intense. You name the sport we'll play it. (except soccer for some reason)
I convinced mom to get me a phone so I have been texting people and am still getting used to it. I got an old phone but in October I get an upgrade to a "real phone"
Matt leaves for Purdue on Thursday so Mom is close to collapse (exhaustion not just sadness)
That's all you get.
