My birthday was last Wednesday. I had work and school on my actual birthday, so it was just alright, but the overall week was great. I went to dinner with good friends on the Saturday before my birthday, and then a few of us went out for drinks after dinner. It was a great night.
This past weekend, Josh and I went to Atlanta with our friends Jay and Ryland to see the Georgia Aquarium. I’ve been wanting to go to that aquarium forever, and Josh decided to take me for my birthday. The aquarium was awesome, and it was just great to get away for a night. Jay and Ryland got us a hotel room for both of our birthdays, so we spent some time exploring Atlanta. We came back Sunday afternoon. I had a lot of fun. This whole week was more than I could ever ask for, and I owe it all to Josh and the amazing people in my life. I love my friends.
I can’t believe I only wrote one entry in February. So sorry about that, guys. February kicked my butt. Well, I guess school kicked my butt in February. I finished one of my courses, Math for Elementary Education I this past Monday. It geared up soon after my last entry and went full-throttle until the end of the month. I got through it, however, and I got through it with an A. I’m pretty proud of myself.
My lowest grades were the project grades, and they were group projects (read: the devil).
We just got our test grades back from our last Math for Elementary Education test, and I made a 93. Some of my classmates in my group text are going, “Yes! I made a 87!” and are getting comments like, “Woohoo!” and “You go, girl!” and meanwhile, I’m sitting here thinking, “Wonder what I missed. I’ve got to do better. There were just four points between me and a B.” Don’t worry, I definitely do not tell my classmates that I’m (mildly) disappointed about a 93.
During the first week of Spring classes, my American Literature instructor asked me what I made in my last English class. I told him I made a 99. He said that means I had to have made a high A on every test and essay, and I probably wouldn’t be able to do that in his class. We have had one test and one essay so far, and I made a 100 and a 96 respectively. Looks like I’m doing what he said I probably wouldn’t be able to do; however, his comment gave me anxiety. I stressed about both of these assignments and worried while I awaited the grades, even though I knew I had done my best.
Hey guys, some updates have piled up, so I decided to just list them all in a new entry.
The About page has been restructured. I moved information on the website up and information on myself down. I want visitors to be able to figure out what this website is about pretty quickly, and with it being below the information on me, it was kind of hidden before.
I worked recaps into the website description because although I didn’t plan on it, they have become a major feature of this website. I have thoroughly enjoyed recapping Fear Street books, Goosebumps books, and most recently Captain Planet episodes. I feel like I’m reliving my childhood on this website through these series, and it’s a lot of fun. I’m going to keep going. They each have pages in the main navigation that introduce the series and link to all of the recaps.
I added anyone who has commented more than once to my Blogroll on the Links page. If anyone I don’t have linked would like to exchange links, let me know! I would love to network with more bloggers.
I have been wanting to rewatch Captain Planet and the Planeteers for a while. After seeing enthusiasm for the show in comments and getting messages from people about the show after my last entry on super heroes, I decided I am going to recap this entire show like I’m doing the Goosebumps book series. It allows me to explore something else I love and have strong nostalgic feelings about, and it will hopefully fill out SHARKBOY with some more, diverse content. I like exploring this stuff I used to love as a kid. I feel like I’m reliving my childhood through these series on this site, and it makes me happy to see that some of you are, too.
This series was my absolute favorite cartoon growing up. Some of my earliest TV memories are of this show. It had an interesting premise, it was very well made, and it had an important message that resonated with kids from all over the world: don’t litter, turn the water off while you brush your teeth, walk or ride a bike rather than drive (cause we were driving when we watched this as kids)… Basically, do your part to save the world; every little action helps. Despite its greatness, it was at times cringe-worthy, unintentionally funny, and ridiculous. You’ll see. I still love it.
