DECA update

Well, I'm just going to make a quick update on DECA.
This year I guess I did relatively well but somehow I feel really bad about it. At least it's better than my last year's 7th place in overall... hopefully I was 4th this year.
What makes me angry is the 1st and 3rd place from MV. It's unfair.. but is life fair. N-O.

At least we also placed in the marketing research overall top finalists. I can't believe the research events were combined. That means we're top from the school... not at this conference though.

Tomorrow FRQ, as a strong apusher (not) I really need to go make up some sample questions and create outlines.

Not so exciting. and YAY I got a new story ...on sophomores and AP classes.

Losing weight

Today's my first day of my fruit/veggies diet. really. what a diet.
I guess I've been gaining some unnecessary weight lately and I've discovered that as I was wearing my used-to-be-perfectly-fitted khakis from last year at DECA. Since I couldn't fit in it.... in turn I had to wear my mom's.
Anyways I'm really hungry and I'm sick of salad. Extremely sick of it.

I strongly dislike math right now. got to go.

Currently hard at work on DECA written project. what fun.
I have to finish this soon because then I have to start working on the powerpoint and the presentation.

Christmas Day

I love. Christmas.
It's always so exciting. Sadly this year I didn't get to eat a lot of candy canes and gingerbread cookies and other holiday goodies.
I'm tired. I think I'm going to go now. Just wanted to do a quick update.

End of Finals, finally

This past week has been long. And slow. Not to mention that I failed all my finals except for my Spanish Oral final which I got an A minus on. Sometimes wouldn't it just be better if people just had a simple life instead of competing in this extreme dog-eat-dog world. Everything's so tense, making me even more stressed.

Funny thing I'm saying that. I don't think I'm stressed out until the last minute...and by last minute I mean it literally. It's not until two hours before the final where I actually start freaking out.

I don't understand how people can even survive through the year like this. It amazes me how people I know can get in colleges that are above and beyond... I mean UPenn. Come on, that's like the best college in the world. I'm still in shock. I didn't know getting in was even possible.

Today we finished our four-week (kind of) Frostie Friends Secret Santa exchange. I always wondered why journo calls it Frostie Friends when everyone else calls it Secret Santa. I've never heard of Frostie Friends before. People even think it's funny when we refer to it as 'Frostie Friends'. It kind of reminds me of Frostie the Snowman which also triggers another memory of students making fun of someone because their name rhymed with Frostie.... How lame.

"I have to give this to him because she told me to"
"Oh cool. For yearbook?"
"Yeah. I really want to know what it is....Don't you guys have that too?"
"Mhm. Frostie Friends?"

Alright. that was the conversation about my really unimportant conversation about Frostie Friends. I think journo secret santa is cute though, better than any other organizations' classes' etc. We get four gifts instead of one. That's a lot. Leadership does it too. Wow. If people are in both leadership and journo... they get double the presents. Lucky.

Shopping tomorrow? Maybe. I haven't gone in a while and if I do I'll be extremly excited. This all depends on if Mock Trial has a meeting tomorrow. Hopefully not. I haven't gone over my directs with the witnesses, well only one. Got to get to work.

What philosophical statement should I say now?

Life is like a piano... what you get out of it depends on how you play it.
