Three cat-lovers in an animal shelter in a room full of cats.  It was a pleasant way to spend our early afternoon.

First Snowman Ever

Posted in Belleville, Friends, Stuff with tags , , , , , , on February 13, 2010 by Jeremy


Winter unleashes its fury with a snowstorm!  Or blizzard.  I don’t really know, but either way, the whole state pretty much anticipated it, prompting my school district to decide to close the schools yesterday.

Joe and Sarah invited me to go out and go sledding, but my mom didn’t want to let me out, saying something about electric cables might snap and kill me.  I guess her idea wasn’t completely unfounded, considering how windy it looked from the inside, but when I brought up that notion to my friends, they laughed and said, “This isn’t bad at all!”

But thankfully, my friends were so intent on getting me out of the house that they walked several blocks just to pick me up.  Of course, my parents couldn’t say no afterwards.  So, we trekked back to Joe and Sarah’s neighborhood (they’re neighbors), where the huge hill was.

Sledding was a fail.  I don’t think today’s snow was meant for sledding.  After several tries, I sort of just quit and proceeded to build a snowman.

I’m pretty sure this is the first snowman I ever made.  All the other times I tried, I failed.

Second Month Ninth Day Tenth Year

February 9.  It’s a pretty random day, but exactly three years ago, I gave it significance; I gave it a life.

February 9, 2007.  Freshman year in high school.  Art class.  Free period.  But what was this dork doing?  Making a card.  That whole week, we had to create cards for some organization, and I decided to take it up a notch that day with a pop-up card.  Everything in it was pretty random, especially the “Happy February 9, 2007 Day!” greeting in front.  I then passed the card around, asking people to sign the back, to show generations to come that they were indeed alive on February 9, 2007.

I planned to celebrate it the following years, but I always forgot about it.   Until this year!  This year, I planned to make another card to pass around, asking people to sign it, but alas, I failed.  Instead, Sarah and I did the CD exchange, and her CD I now present to you.

It’s mere coincidence that we used practically the same color scheme.  How hard it must have been to cut all that construction paper!

Thanks a lot, Sarah!  I enjoyed the CD very much.

A perfect society.  My friend Sarah and I had to create one for our sociology class, and we had to present it, using a presentation board.

Running on thirty minutes of sleep, I had to go to her house after school and work on the entire project with her.  It wasn’t until about 8 or 9 pm that I began to feel sleepy.

It was also nice to be with Sarah.  Like I said in a previous post, we really haven’t connected lately.  Today really made me realize how close me and Sarah were in the past.  Today made me value those fun times with her.

I enjoyed today.

Passionate Carols

Winter concert in school.  Many of my friends were either in the choir, the orchestra, or the band.  Some nice holiday music to get you in the mood.

Bah, I really want to learn how to play the violin.  I could’ve been a prodigy!
