Last week, my school had our prom. For my school, prom isn't just for seniors-- kids from all the grades can attend, mainly because our school is tiny, and if they only let in seniors, the turnout would be very small. I decided to go, as I do every year, because it's always lots of fun, and it's the best time that I can really bust out my dance moves.
My friend Quacker and I were both planning on going, so we decided to meet up and have a bite to eat beforehand.
Note: while I was writing this post, my drawing hand was out of action, so I asked my friend, Kyra Fuller, to be guest artist for this post. She's a really talented artist, and I hope you enjoy!
So for the past few months I've been obsessing over the flyest gaming company's awesome upcoming console: the Nintendo Switch.
Note: This is a backlog post. sorry about the lateness, guys, I know I've been off and on lately, but I'll definitely be trying to post more! I've got a lot of experiences I want to tell you guys about!
Recently, my school had our annual Thanksgiving brunch, where students, teachers, and alumni get together, bring food, and do all sorts of activities. (If you've been keeping up with my blog for a while, you probably remember last year's.) My favorite part of the event is the Super Smash Bros. tournament! Both last year and this year, I had the honor of hosting the tournament. As always, I was really excited.
I haven't posted in a while, so there's a lot to catch up on.
Let's start about six weeks ago.
So this year, I actually went to two proms. I went to the first one with my sister's friend Deborah. Before we left, everyone going met up at my house, and we took some pictures. This was a bit more formal then most of my school's proms are, so I had to rent a tuxedo. After we left the house, we went to a fancy restaurant and sat at a really big table. I had a burger, truffle fries, and a big Oreo milkshake. I cannot stress enough how awesome Oreo milkshakes are. I enjoyed the dinner, and I liked talking to my date and some of the other people at the table. Overall, it was fun.
A couple weekends ago was the National Science and Engineering Festival. It's the biggest convention of science and engineering in the country, at least as far as I know. It happens every other year, and I go every time they have it. It's really great, being surrounded by all that science, it's just really awesome.
Last week was my school's spring break trip. I had a lot of fun on it last year, so I decided to go again this year.
Early Monday morning, my mom drove me over to the school's temporary location, where the students going on the trip were to meet up. There, we got on the clunky old school bus and started the long drive.
So last Friday was the last day of my school's quarter, ushering in Spring Break! I haven't really started my spring break, but the last day was pretty interesting.
So I liked ArtLab so much that a few Thursdays ago, I decided to go back there.
When I left school last week, I wasn't feeling very good. I had forgotten my Physics textbook at home, and everyone had given me crap about it. Almost immediately after I left school, I went and bought myself a dozen doughnuts, most of which I angrily consumed.
A couple Fridays ago, the first snow of the season hit! Personally, I prefer the winter weather, so I was quite pleased by this development. I mean, in cold weather, you can just put on a sweater, or snuggle in a blanket, or even GET IN A SLEEPING BAG if you feel like it. But in the hot, you basically just have to sit around in the uncomfortable heat, or, what, rip your skin off? I mean, sure, you could get air conditioning, but you can also get heating for cold places.
This is one of the many reasons I plan to live in Massachusetts. Not to mention it seems like a pretty intellectual place. You always hear about "new studies at MIT" or "scientists at Harvard found" or stuff like that. That sounds like a prefect place for an aspiring inventor like me.
