First Day of Exams

Today’s been a strange day. It was the first day of exams, so we only had one exam today – English, in the afternoon. I planned to sleep in for a while, but I couldn’t, so I just got up at about 8:30 or so. Instead of studying like any good boy should do before an exam, I decided I’d rather learn the bass part for a couple songs. So I went downstairs and learned Time Will Change Your Heart by Blindside (good song) and Generation Lost by Rise Against (another good song). It was pretty cool.

Anyways, before my dad came home to pick me up to go to school, I ate some chocolate chip waffles. It was the only thing I could find to eat other than the plate of food in the fridge that I’m supposed to have for supper – in a few minutes actually. My mom is cool like that. She usually puts some food on a plate and puts it in the fridge for me if I have to work.

But yeah. I was kind of distracted last night and today. My friend was telling me about her friend that’s going through some hard times, so she was pretty worried about that. I promised to pray for her, and pray I did. I kept reminding myself to stop and pray about it, so I’d do that. So going into the exam, I had to force myself to keep focused so I would get it all done. After all, English exams mean lots of writing. I wrote 17 pages, and some others wrote about 23 or so. It’s pretty crazy.

So anyways. That’s been my day so far. I’ve got to work tonight, and that shouldn’t be too bad except that we have like six new subs to learn how to make and some new combo deal thing that I have to hand out scratch cards for. It’s kind of annoying because I have to give one to every person that buys a combo. But yeah, I suppose I’ll get used to it after a while. I’ll likely get used to it about a day or two before the contest finishes.

I think that’s all I want to say for today. I feel strange. It’s different than the strangeness that I always feel, but that’s likely because I’m quite different. But whatever. I’ve thoroughly exhausted that topic. Au revoir.
