Today I can just go home and relax.  The only thing I have to worry about is wrestling.  I didn’t make basketball and was the last one cut.  Now Mr. Balmert found out and told me to wrestle.  I don’t really want to wrestle because it’s everyday and I don’t have time because I have homework and need to study to bring my grades up.  I hope it snows before Christmas so we can get out of school at least 1 day because of snow.  And Christmas just isn’t the same without some snow.

I have been sick for two days now and have a ton of homework.  Today I am leaving at 12:20 pm to go to Tennessee to see my Grandma for Thanksgiving.  It is an 8 hour drive down there but Ryan is going with us so it should be pretty fast.  I can’t wait to get out of school.  

School is so boring but I have to go through high school and college to get a good job.  I am thankful for my parents, my education, God, my room, all my stuff, my house, my relatives and my friends.

Today I was sick for half a day.  Everywhere people are getting sick.  Two hours ago I was staying home from school and was happy.  Now I got my progress report, I have an upset stomach because I”m not doing so good in my main subjects Spanish and math.  I got a bad test grade in both of those subjects.  I have to really start studying Spanish more because I”m having a hard time in that.  I saw somebody else’s progress report and that really made my stomach turn, they were getting all F’s. My parents would shoot me if I got one F.  I can’t wait till Christmas and by then I hope my grades will be up so I can have a happy Christmas.  My dad is going to kill me about my Spanish grade because he said the only subjects I’m concerned about are math and Spanish and those are the subjects I’m doing bad in.  I hope my parents aren’t too mad.

Finally the weekend.  Another week gone by thank God.  This has been one of the busiest weeks of my life.  Basketball, homework and school.  The only thing is that tomorrow I still have to get up for basketball tryouts.  We have three more days of tryouts.

Today it’s raining and I have basketball tryouts.  I hope I get on the team but if I don’t it doesn’t matter because I can always do wrestling.  I don’t really care what I’m doing as long as I’m doing something.  I can’t wait for the weekend because I can relax and not have to worry about anything.  The only things I”m worried about now is Religion because I got a 49 on my test and Spanish because I failed a test but there is a retest.  Today we get out at 1:40 but it doesn’t matter because I”m going to be here till 4:00 pm.  Playing basketball or wrestling is touch because you have to practice so many hours.
