Powerpuff?

The Powderpuff Game, a football game where all the players are female, coached by guys from the football team.  Senior girls vs. junior girls.

It was interesting, but I ended up just fooling around with the sophomores.  Go Seniors!

I had to serve detention today because I was “late” to school yesterday.  Technically, I was already in school when the bell for first period rang, but I wasn’t in class yet, so my teacher marked me late and sent me to the office, where a long line of students were already waiting.  The school just decided today to enforce the rules.  They never used to care that much.

Anyway, the point is, I had to go to school early today.  And listen to this, all the juniors and seniors were supposed to go to school later than usual today because all the underclassmen were taking some standardized test, but because I had detention, I still had to go to school forty-five minutes earlier than the normal time for school.  So, after detention, I had to leave the school and wait a couple of hours before coming back.

Instead of going home, however, I walked around.  Walked.  Walked.  Walked.  I don’t really know how to make walking sound like an awesome  activity, so I’m not even going to try.  But that’s how it felt.  It felt a bit invigorating to bask in the morning sun for once.

So my day started on a cheerful note.

Tennis after school practically grabbed that pleasant beginning of my day, slapped it a few dozen times, flung it around, drowned it, fried it, stuck a pike into it, and tossed it off the edge of the Earth.  Needless to say, the end of my day felt really depressing.

It took one best friend and Pokemon HeartGold, which I bought today, to retrieve that happiness from the abyss and to end my day on a satisfactory note.

It Can Only Take You So Far

Just for the Record

The beginning of the 2010 tennis season was marked with beautiful spring weather, a scene this idiot failed to capture in photographs.

He forgot his camera at home because his sisters borrowed it the night before.

The Dreaded Doctor’s Office

Something about physicians scare me.  When they examine you, they try to see if something’s wrong, and I always feel that there is.  Thus, I feel that physicians are bearer of bad news.  That’s why I sort of dread going to the doctor, fearing that I’ll leave the building with a new-found awareness of some disease I never knew I had.

Anyway, today, I asserted my maturity by going to a clinic to get my physical exam for a sport in school.  The tennis season starts tomorrow, and I need this in order to practice.  Before I was eighteen, I needed an adult with me to get my physical, but my friends recently told me that I can now go by myself.  And that I did.

Student Teacher Basketball Game.  The Senior class’ best players (excluding those in the basketball team) against whoever the faculty has to offer.

Some of my friends were pushing me to play, but I told myself, “I’m going to suck so much that it’s not gonna be funny.”  I signed up anyway, thinking that it’ll be fun.  That’s when I realized I’m still going to suck, so I backed out.

I still had to be there for the game though since the event was a fundraiser for the Senior class, and I’m the president.  I didn’t want to look like a complete dork though, so I put on a white tee and a Lakers jersey that one of my uncles gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago.  First time I wore it.  I have to say, I looked pretty fly.

At least I think I did.

Anyway, I wasn’t going to play but I was playing around while the guys were practicing before the actual game.  A lot of people thought I was going to play with my whole getup.

In the end, I kinda regret not playing.

Only two of the total ten.  The two I was closest to in karate.

I’ve never been with a rowdier crowd in a public place.  Haha.  I had a lot of fun though.

I was sort of hoping we’d get kicked out of Applebee’s.
