OK, I was supposed to write today’s entry an hour ago, but I’ve been stalling because I honestly don’t know what to say.  Actually, it was the title that was eluding me, and, for some reason, I couldn’t start without creating one.

So here I am, writing without a title.

Stayed home all day.  Then, I drove my sisters and one of my sister’s friends to Coldstone.  I’m so nice.

Now about that title…

Rough Beginning

My friends Tram and Kristine invited me today to go to Boston for the weekend.  Kristine was to drive all the way from Jersey and we would get there in a few hours.  I agreed to come, excited by the prospect of being in another state for the beginning of spring break.

Through a series of unfortunate events, I ended up ruining the entire trip for all of us.  It was a battle between me and my parents.  I lost.

And there’s my new car, taken from my room, in which I stayed all night, doing my homework, angry.

A decent family gathering at Applebee’s.

Nineteen years.

My sister and I were coming home with my dad from my dentist’s appointment and her religious class.  As soon as we entered the house, my mom said, “I have bad news for the two of you.”

She proceeded to talk to my sister about her progress report in school, which told of my sister’s problems in school.  Needless to say, my parents were peeved.  Meanwhile, I forgot that my mom had bad news for me, so I went upstairs to my room.  A few minutes later, she called me down and imparted with me the bad news that she mentioned earlier.

Without having to provide the details of the news, I’ll just say that it had something to do with my future education.

Sullen I once again became, and I stayed in my room, forcing myself to sleep.

After my induced nap, I asked my mom to cook these noodles that she was planning to make for tomorrow.  I love this recipe, so I satisfied myself by eating a lot.  It was clearly unhealthy, but it tasted so good.

Happiness in a Frame

I don’t know why one look at this picture makes me happy, especially since I can’t even remember what happened during this time.  I just feel happy.

The yearbook staff is asking all the seniors to submit all their baby pictures,  a task I didn’t know I had to do until the day of the deadline.  So when I got home, I took out all the pictures taken when I was young and looked for my cute baby pictures.  It was really the first time I thoroughly looked at all the photographs since who knows when, so it was pretty awesome looking at myself when I was cute and clueless.

Familiar Longing

Honestly, I looked forward to this Sunday, spending some time with my family.  Like, instead of complaining about going to Shoprite after church, I told myself, “Oh, cool! Some quality time with the family.”

Too bad that as soon as I got home, I locked myself in my room, as usual, away from everyone.

A Gracious Scholastic Exchange

I always like visiting other schools and comparing them with my own school.  I would usually find myself thinking or uttering, “Oh!  We don’t have this in my school!” or “Wow! This is awesome!”

So, what brought me to the school presented above?  FBLA.  I had to complete a task for the State competitions, and it involved computers, so all the competitors had to convene in one school.  Piscataway graciously offered its school to be the testing site, so that town we went!

I went with Michael and my sister Jamie, who also had to complete something for a different competition.  They felt confident about their performance, and I’m really excited for them.

I, on the other hand, might have messed up a bit with mine.  No need to get detailed with my predicament.  The point is I was unfamiliar with what I had to do.  Again.  Either way, despite the errors, I still feel a bit of confidence.  I’m just hoping for the best
