we survived the first two weeks!

Yesh my friends, it has been a long time. There's been a lot of stuff going on! But s'all good :)

We shall write this post under several heads! I think we need a table of contents! 
1. School
2. Robotics
3. Theatre
4. Whatever I feel like :P

So! School is going well. We had an awful lot of math homework all week, and I managed to not do any biology until Wednesday night, the day before bio class, hehe. 
On Monday night I declared, "Time for a weekend!" after getting home at a late hour. This sentiment was echoed by dad and friends. We had a consensus that Tuesday January 12th should have been a weekend!

We had a math test today, which I think I did rather well on (for me, in math, that means 80% or so). 

In culinary we had an event: catered a lunch for the teachers, Mexican food....very stressful but fun. 

I then proceeded to stay at school because it wasn't much longer til rehearsal. 

Which brings me to theatre, even though it's not in order. 

Romeo and Juliet progresses well, I have fun waiting about as I'm not in many scenes. Good times. Gotta love theatre. 

Robotics progresses even better. The kickoff was on Saturday last, and we have embarked on the exhausting 6 weeks of madness. We have a robot that drives, although it is last year's stripped-down bot with this year's controls, and we have a working device to kick soccer balls (part of this year's game). 
Yesterday I got to solder some electrical wires, and I've been hammering nails and driving screws to build a mock-up of the field. In short, departing from my ordinary course of business :)      

And we have a three-day weekend coming up.....I think this is a happy factor :) 

I am just now realizing how tired I am....sorry this post isn't very interesting! I love you all....leave a comment....leave a chat message.....  :D

I see that you have England listed as one of your interests! Perhaps you would like my blog:

As often as possible I will post photographs of glorious vistas, charming close-ups, and interesting tidbits of life in Great Britain for the pleasure of Anglophiles everywhere!

Robotics. Awesome. I know nothing about the topic but I think the science will be a huge deal in the future...

Bethany said...

hey Logan! Yes, robotics is the kickoff, pretty much all the speakers said how important they thought science and technology are going to be....we keep a-workin' away at the programming book :)
