Summer's Finally Here!!

So I haven't talked in forever but I thought about it a few weeks ago and decided that I neeeded to get an entry in eventually! So today's the day! My last few weeks have been absolutely horrible. I signed up for a girls P.E. class to get a few credits in, and I thought it would be fine, you know? I thought wrong. We walk 6 miles a day, then when we get back we do an activity. This last Friday it rained so we stayed inside and walked up one side of the gym stairs, across the top, down that side, then we crossed the court and walked up those stairs, around, and down on the other side. It doesn't sound bad, I know, but it is. Especially the next day =/. So we did that for 50 minutes or so then we did circuits. If you don't know what circuits are, you honestly don't WANT to know but for the story's sake I'll tell you. What you do is you have different stages. We had 15 stages in all =/. You have so many minutes/seconds that you have to do that certain exercise before you move on to the next stage. Some stages: Bicep curls, some step thing where you have to step up, then down, then up, then down...etc., ab curls, some dog leg thing where you are on your hands and knees and you lift one side of your leg up like a dog would, then halfway through your time, you lift the other leg for the rest, the bicycle thing where you lay on your back and move your legs like your on a bicycle(pretty self explanatory), and tons more I don't care to mention because it pains me so. After that we played a new basketball game where you have two teams. Your whole team sits when its not there turn. There are 4 cones around the gym, corner to corner. When you shoot for a basket, whether you make it or not, you have to run as fast as you can around the gym back to the cone you started at and pass the ball off to your teammate. You COULD shoot again before you run, but the person on the other side of the court, on the opposite team, is trying to catch you. If they catch you, they get your point and you lose one (you can go into major negatives). The couch made us play that for a good 30/40 minutes, which meant I had to go at least 3 times =P. Then after that we had to play another basketball game. I guess you could say by the end of the class, I was dead but the next class i had, zoology, we walked a good 1 to 1 1/2 miles! Not jut "walked" we hiked! Sheesh...I was beat. Luckily on Wednesdays in P.E. we get to watch a movie, and on Thursdays we go bowling (after the 6 miles). But hey, this next Monday and Tuesday are the last days! And on Tuesday, the class is only an hour long =D. It started on the 3rd of this month, so I cant wait till Tuesday. But enough about me, here are some good 'Ol' quotes for you to read and ponder:

  • It is bad luck to be superstitious.

-Andrew W. Mathis

  • I find it rather easy to portray a businessman. Being bland, rather cruel and incompetent comes naturally to me.

-John Cleese

  • I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

-Umberto Eco

  • Is life worth living?Aye, with the best of us,Heights of us, depths of us - Life is the test of us!

-Corinne Roosevelt Robinson


oh heres a little bit of an example i made in paint of the game we played if you were confused any by what i said before.
