DAY DOSCIENTOS Y SIETE
So today was actually surprisingly fun. I dont have any pictures yet but I went to Universal Studios with some kids from Van Nuys + Hansol. I mean, I’ve probably been to Universal a hundred times and I pretty much memorized every show and ride that we went on but I really actually had fun with these kids. I actually went on the mummy for the first time, I had the guts to go through the house of horrors, AND on jurassic park with Joe, Jae, Sean, Eileen, & Hanse. HAHA I ended up going to all of their houses that night too — it was a pretty crazy adventure. Now it’s time to lock down on homework.
DAY CIEN CUARENTA Y CUATRO
CITY FINALS! Even though I didn’t qualify, I’m so happy to be able to capture beautiful moments for the team. I love my teams so much and I’ll miss the seniors. Sigh this makes me very sad that I won’t be historian anymore but that won’t stop me from taking pictures. It was a great way to end the week. I still can’t believe this season is over.
DAY CIEN CUARENTA Y DOS
You cannot imagine how happy I was today when I got back to school. Today was Dive CIF LA City Finals and we had to go in the morning for once, which was strange. It was so cold having to dive and get out in my wet suit and I’m pretty sure I have a cold now. The very first dive, my favorite dive, the back dive straight. I got so close to the board that I hit my feet upon entrance and my ankle hurt the entire meet. I also threw a back flip pike for the first time ever and got the highest score of an 8 I have on my entire list. Halfway through, I was placed fifth, only two points behind fourth and third. When I found out, I got a little nervous and failed my next dive :( It ended with me getting 7th place but I’m glad I placed in the least. On the way back, I got a call from Katherine saying I was elected president for Knights and Ladies and I WAS SO HAPPY. Right away Mr. Anderson introduced me to the staff and RIGHT AWAY I had work to do. He was telling me how I was the first person to get elected who wasn’t even there for elections and how I’m the first CORE president in four years. Coach was really happy for me too, because this was the second president she’s had! EVERYTHING WAS JUST SO GREAT and I was so tired from all the excitement but I had to attend Senior Awards Night right after for CPCs. I was exhausted but it was so great to see the seniors get their awards I have no idea why Aram thought it was boring HAHA. I can’t wait. After that I wish I could have done more but I guess it’s not the same as middle school anymore. IM SO HAPPY.
DAY CIEN VEINTICUATRO
AHHH prom haha. It was a pretty amazing night and I had a lot of fun. Thanks, Richard.
DAY CIEN DIECIOCHO
Gosh, even though things got really bad today with Brownie and I thought my birthday became terrible, my friends and family made it so much better. I never want my birthday to be a big deal because it’s just like any other day to me. I don’t want people to have to go out of their way to do things for me but when people do remember and make a gesture, I appreciate even the littlest things :) James, being in a whole other city, called me to say happy birthday and was there for me when Brownie was in the hospital. Daisy dropped off cookies and socks at my house and turned that around too. Hansol just posted a picture on instagram but hey, i smiled a bunch. Aram was actually the first to do anything for me! He said happy early birthday and got me a build a bear :)) Katherine got me so much, a drawing pad, a balloon, and a cake. Thanks so much Katherine! My swim team ahhhh <3 THANK YOU MARK FOR SAYING HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY AND MAKING ME SMILE THROUGHOUT TODAY. THANK YOU MS. MACON FOR SINGING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME. THANK YOU AMELIA, MEGAN, RACHEL, IAN FOR SAYING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME SEVERAL TIMES. Ugh these people and more I appreciate so much. I just wish I could return it all just as much.
DAY NOVENTA Y SEIS
I had to make a post today because I had such a good weekend. Everything was working to my luck even though I had a bad week with Senior Board. I really needed it. First, the mandatory rehearsal we made on time because the pool heater broke on wednesday. Although the pool was at 82 degrees the next day, Coach let me out early because I needed to leave at 4:00 on Friday for COREchella even though she initially wasn’t going to. Saturday was Izzy’s Debut and I didn’t know until the day of COREchella and I THOUGHT I had volunteering but it was cancelled. I found out after finally doing some backflips :) STILL SCARED BUT YEAH. AH COREchella was an amazing experience and I had great support from everyone and the audience was so nice i love everyone. Izzy’s party was so heartwarming and fun and she deserved every second of it.
DAY OCHENTA Y DOS
Yea I haven’t posted in about a month because of homework and I really don’t even have the time to right now but I’m really sad :( I realized yesterday practicing for dive alone that it’s actually really hard to do it without any support from a coach or a team mate. This morning I realized that I won’t have the Denny’s tradition before going out to dive like I did for the past two years (even though I really shouldn’t eat before a dive meet lol) and the realization that I won’t have the fun car rides with my team anymore :( IDK how this is going to work. I’m not really improving, just reinforcing what I already learned.
DAY CINCUENTA Y CINCO
We had an early day today but I didn’t really get to take advantage of it by doing homework. Sigh I should’ve taken advantage of my weekend more since I didn’t have calc or micop on saturday. -.- Anyways we made 400 eggrolls today!
DAY CINCUENTA Y CUATRO
I SPENT ALL FRIGGIN DAY ON THIS MURAL HOLY MOLY. I AM SO EXHAUSTED AND I DID NOT HAVE A GOOD DAY. The fact that I did not start homework at all made it even worse. Someone was able to make my day a bit better though!
DAY CINCUENTA Y TRES
Hmmm.. I woke up at eight today and scored 12 hours of sleep. Right when I was feeling like cleaning my room my mom said we had to go out to Chinatown to eat. It took half an hour to get up there and half an hour for my mom to pick up pastries before we got to the restaurant. When we got home.. Ofc I didn’t want to clean.. so before I knew it I had to go coach for Special Olympics :D It was fun & I met some pretty cool people. Ok I should clean my room, get any work I can done.. (which I kind of doubt I will) and sleep cos I have a mural to paint tomorrow. WTH my life is so eventful. Not many people can say they coached swimming for children with disabilities one day and is going to paint a mural the next.. I’m kind of proud of myself :)
