Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.
Today was the first day of school. My first day of tenth grade. The first time I heard my science teacher's Yoda impersonation.
I've never dreaded the first day of school. I always feel more anxious than anything. Last night I couldn't sleep, and when I woke up at seven AM this morning, I barely made it to the shower without collapsing.
My classes this semester?
Planning - We're going to be focusing on our future career plans, nutrition, and budgets. Fun stuff. Minus the fact that I have no real career plans, I already know a weird amount of information about nutrition (seriously. Want a good source of polyunsaturated fat? Eat some salmon), and my version of a budget is the cow-shaped-piggy-bank on my desk.
English - English, English, English. This makes me happy. And I have it with a boy I was friends with when we were, like, six years old. That makes me happy. However, we're starting with a unit on essays. Slightly less fun.
Art - Eek! I'm extremely thrilled to have Art class for a whole semester (half the school year). And I have it with two of my good friends. So stoked for our pottery unit :)
Band/Science - We have band all year round, paired with an academic course. I play trumpet. I am very excited. I need to stop using "I" statements.
My semester looks pretty fun--but that means, starting in February, I have all the crazy hard academic classes. Woo-hoo.
My friend K and I stayed late after school (so late that our science/home room teacher was like, "Get out of here!" In a joking way... I think) decorating our lockers. I love putting pictures up in my locker, even though I have a stupid bottom locker (meaning I need to kneel down on the ground and jostle elbows with my "neighbors" every time I need to get my books). I get to decide what I want to look at for the coming year--what will inspire me or make me laugh.
As of today, I'll get to stare at Finn from Glee (AKA Cory Monteith)'s face every time I open my locker. I've got to be honest, I'm pretty excited :D
