The good news this week started on Tuesday when I ran one of my best track meets ever. It started with an 800 relay which I feel I ran well in. Later on I finished second in the regular 800 meter event. After that I placed FIRST in the 2-mile race, my most difficult event! I felt wonderful after the meet which kept me in a positive mood throughout the rest of the week.
Another reason to raise excitement is the field trip to Washington DC this Friday. The trip is for students in French classes, which includes a good amount of my friends. I went to DC a few times before in my life, trips which contained memorable experiences. I remember meeting many pigeons, riding the subway, and meeting a police horse. War memorials, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial are obviously included as well. The gorgeous cherry blosson trees should be blooming during the visit. I plan to take pictures of them (along with other notable sights encountered on the trip). I will probably post a sample of my best pictures here.
Currently: 1-2 days until D.C . trip, a week and a half until spring play, and approximately a little over 2 weeks until the band trip to Boston! I can’t wait for any of these events!
P.S. The long bus ride gives me an excellent opportunity to finish writing my play. Look forward to more chapter releases soon.
Done…and done! Just like I mentioned in the previous post, I posted the second scene to Yet Another Worthless Play. Read the play by clicking its link in the sidebar to the right. While posting the scene I decided to post my first stage play, Master Manderdorke, in the archives with my other stories. Look forward to its release sometime in the near future.
It snowed on Thursday. In the middle of March. WHY? In my opinion, the snow is absolutely gorgeous in December while anticipating Christmas’s arrival. However, I do not appreciate it in the middle of March. Thank goodness it disappeared before the weekend or else I would become very upset.
So far I’m having a good time. Track, spring play, and weekends with my horses keep me busy enough. Currently I can balance my time between track and play very well. The only hectic moments will be days with track meets and the play practices before the performance in April. This year everything seems to be occurring in April. I have a one-day field trip to D.C., spring play, the band trip to Boston, and assorted track meets thrown in the mix. After that, finally, I can slow down to enjoy myself over the Easter break. After Easter my mind will concentrate on the rest of the track season until the desperately needed summer break begins! See? I’m not complaining about school one bit.
While absolutely everything seems to be occurring in my life I still prioritize work on Another Worthless Play. I have not posted any more scenes on this site because I decided to elaborate upon some of the earlier scenes. Right now I consider releasing the second scene after I finish this post. Since I am typing this during a fragment of free time in computer class it depends upon how much time I have left after writing this. I can promise that the play looks spectacular. I am currently working on the second act. Who knows? Maybe it will turn out to be my best piece of literature yet! I’ll just have to keep working on it and see.
As mentioned before in this post, I will travel with the marching band for a spring trip. I absolutely CANNOT wait to go. Along with the main attractions in Boston I will see Salem, Mass. and the historical sites related to the witch trials. While there I plan on taking countless pictures. The location may also inspire the creation of a few new spooky, dark stories! The concept sounds extremely interesting. Upon my return I plan to post a few of my best pictures here and document my adventures during the trip. Until then I’ll be busy surviving the other adventures this spring.
