Its weird to think that tomorrow I’ll be off to start my first day back, for my last year of high school. It seems like just yesterday I started ninth grade, and now I am heading into 12th. Wow time flies by quick. So much has changed…I still don’t feel like a grown up? How is a grown up supposed to feel? I feel as though I’ve matured. I’ve learned a lot about friendship, and responsibility. So far the advice I’ve been given by the adults in my life has been, “do your best,” and “have fun.” I think that’s some pretty good advice, don’t you? I feel like I’m playing a game of soccer (football) and there is only 10 minutes left in the game, and my team has to score or…we lose. You could say I’m a bit nervous. I know that I have nothing to worry about though. I’m prepared to do what it takes to get to where I need to be. Well…to everyone else going back, have fun and do you best this year.
The following was inspired by a writing exercise from The English Emporium. Check them out, they’ve got a lot of great resources for students, teachers, and writers.
Every year since Robert Daniels had entered school, he had never been defined by a label. He wasn’t a jock, even though he did play sports, he wasn’t a geek, even though he indulged in science fiction comic books and he wasn’t a hipster, even though he was very good at being ironic. Robert Daniels was undefined, and therefore he felt that he was nobody. This year however, Robert decided that he was going to get a label. He devised a plan that would hopefully help him crawl up the social ladder. Robert was going to spend the first week back at high school being, whoever he wanted to be.

Till next time,
I can’t believe that in only two months, my blog has reached up to fifty followers. That’s just…wow. I feel like I should buy a cake or something. I know that I post a lot of quotes and things, but that’s because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. Okay, I guess that I should go into a little more depth about that…basically I over edit and analyse things that I write. I’ll probably do that with this, but I’m just going to pretend this is more of a journal entry, so it doesn’t have to be formal, and follow a specific structure. Well, I’ve been meaning to post a few short stories and poems on here that I’ve written. I write these like everyday, so I figure I might as well publish a couple on my blog. I’m going to probably post an actual…snippet of something later today. I don’t know if I am going to edit it or not…it was really just a writing exercise so, I don’t think it matters. I’d love to give you guys a taste of like…the first draft. You know, where mistakes are supposed to happen, and things are a little messy. I just like seeing things progress from just an idea to…a finished product. So I think I’ll try that later today. Anyways thank you so much for following my blog. I know I rambled on there a little bit, but I’m just trying not to be too formal. Again thanks for following me. I really appreciate it, and for those who I am following, I love reading your blogs they are awesome and so inspiring. Thanks!
The fruits of summer fade,
They have their seasons, so do we
but please promise me, that sometimes
you will think of me!
