Thought since I had the time I’d update haha. Afterwards I promise to put my phone back on sleep and study for my psychology test last period! By the way really hoping to get better than the 90 I got on the last test, I’m getting closer to my goal of A+ :D.

Got my report card Friday and I had a pretty good GPA what with all the honor and AP classes. I had about a 4.2 and that’s only because I’m not so sure about the weighted average of an AP class yet so I’m playing it safe and acting as if it is not weighted. My mom seemed semi-pleased though she was really peeved off at the B’s I had in Psych, Government and Physics. Figures I would mess up in my core classes…well not including Psychology and I did have an A in Statistics. Grades aside I still haven’t finished an application to any school yet! I have officially missed the deadline to both Columbia and NYU. Those are early decision but it was what I was hoping I could reach by mid November. It’s a lot to think about right now. I’m studying more than I ever have in my entire life and it’s because I just really want to do well this year and leave a lasting impression on this high school.

My goals for the rest of the year are to pull up all of my grades and get this volunteering Job with HIRED! by the end of the month, hopefully. I need the money and even though it won’t be arriving for a few months the lump sum of it will surely shock me after I put in all the hours. I also have to think about my plans for next year like volunteering and possible jobs. So much to do and it’s seems like it all has to be done by tomorrow.

今晩はみんなちゃん!今日私はとても疲れていますよ!感覚のドラマを見ました。妹ちゃんと一緒に見ました。でも杉ドラマのリンクは壊れたなリンク。なぜ!!!!コーヒープリンスが見たいですよ。今、私はとても悲しいですよ。T_T

I’ve been watching lots of dramas with my little sister since break started. WAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIITTTTT!!!!! I didn’t mention that I got a “sorta” job! (For those who don’t know a “sorta” job is a job that isn’t really a job that doesn’t pay a lot and you have to work a lot of hours but hey at least your getting money from somewhere :D) I’m so happy I deposited my first check – of a sad $50 – into my bank account this afternoon. I feel so grown up my first job xD!!!! Well anyway this job is really an internship so it’s something I can put on a college application and all. I was sent over through the internship program to the public library near my house to serve 12 hours a week earning $100 every two week pay period. Not bad eh? Well sorry but it kinda is I get bored so quickly unless I have endless carts worth of books to sort.

Next week however I have to work 24 hours (which I hope is allowed) so that I can go on a youth retreat with my church during the first week of August. Don’t wanna be missing out on money haha. I’m kind of nervous about the retreat because the girls going in my church I heard from my sister are all kind of how do I put this rude. Ah chinchara! >.>

Speaking of college applications I’m going to college next year’s September!!! Hoorahhhh :D

I’m excited about that really, I’ve been dying to be free in my city and once I’m adult college starbucks type material I’ll get to do all that. What i heard today really made me happy – especially because I want so badly to get into Columbia University – if you’re coming from unrich parents ,such as myself, and are an A student most ivy league colleges will allow you to attend for no money at all!!! I’m happy xD. All I have to do is continue studying like I have been for the rest of the summer and pace myself so that I will do very well on the SATs so that I can get into the school of my dreams. It’s all I want God give me this T_T.

I also have a lot of other things to do for the next school year like starting my Ap Economics paper (still have not gotten that book >.>) and complete my senior folder that was due in June might I add and continue studying for Japanese so that I am up to par when I start my AP Japanese class too. It’s a lot to think about so I usually do just one at a time. The beginning of the summer I started with mostly Japanese because I enjoy it the most and I started this week working on SAT test prep – mostly the critical reading section so far – next comes the paper and senior folder and I’m all set to be a star student senior at Francis Lewis High School :D. (Sorry for the run-ons ^^’)

Searching for a Job

leave a comment »

I already applied to the obvious locations for a 16 year old high school student – McDonalds, Burger King etc. – and with this recession I’m really not expecting  a break. Despite the lack of optimism I applied to both Target and Pathmark today for full-time positions. Those applications took a lifetime and half and I’ve actually just completed the Pathmark application that I started at about 4:30. I ask for everyone’s good graces so that I may finally be able to earn money and become the ideal consumer I have always dreamed of becoming (^3^) hee*

The unfair thing about this whole job thing is that my younger brother already got 2 jobs! What the hell!?! >.> It doesn’t make any type of logical sense I am 16 versus his 14 years and should therefore rank higher in eligibility when it comes to job erm…..getting. I’m so upset. He’s so lazy with crappy grades yet he always gets everything I want and wish for. I feel like I’m not meant to have anything. I’ve lost money several times, I’ve missed out on opportunities to get things, I’m never present when other people are receiving presents and with this now I am unable to get a job. I think I already mentioned not being accepted into the Summer Youth Internship Program. All the facts you need to know – lottery; brother got accepted; I was rejected; it is now too late to apply for any other youth internship or volunteering program. Allow me to cry once T_T

This is really weighing heavily on my brain I kind of really want to cry. Massive sigh. とても悲しいですよ!ざんえんでしたねえ。。。

A family friend said that I should never be bored because of something about being alive that I can’t quite remember but I feel it profusely right now and I can’t help it. The last couple of days have been school cleaning studying and sleeping. I feel as if I have no choice. I really want a job. I thought I would volunteer as a candy striper and get a job as well. Thank everything you can make up your own hours when it comes to community service. It’s just the getting the job part that is the hardest. My sister has been trying to get a job since early this year. I don’t know what that implies when it comes to me getting a job.

I’ve kind of been enjoying myself lately – besides the boredom – because I’ve retreated into my books. I’ve read about 6 in the past 4 days. I’m imagination is going wild with all the different endings I have been making for each book I’ve finished. I’m such a dork at heart. Today in American History this kid, Victor, nearly jumped out of his seat when I told him I loved dictionary.com and referring to my own dictionary. I’ve never seen anyone laugh that hard and creepily in my life. I mean what is so surprising. I can’t highlight and write my own example sentences in my own dictionary and constantly check dictionary.com for grammar or spelling mistakes. I love words.

Besides that I’ve been coming home earlier in the afternoon, around 3:30 sometimes. Usually I just go home and lounge around like I "used" to *snicker snicker*. But Sister said that I should come and meet her up at Laguardia before her 6 o’clock class so we can hang out around LIC. Sounds tempting. If only she went to school at NYU or Hunter. I’d be in Manhattan in a minute.

You can tell that school has completely numbed my mind what with all the book and grammar talk and especially about meeting up at someone else’s school. I feel crazy half the time really. I fall asleep in class a lot. But I’m starting to enjoy art again. It’s not as boring if you break out of the routine a bit and do somethings that you just feel like doing and go with your own flow.

What’s funny now is that am at the library again today and I just borrowed three more books. That probably make about 20 books since the 4 times I’ve been here since last week. I need a shirt that says nerd alert. You know, just so people can be well, alert.

It seems as if I blame a lot of things on other people. That doesn’t sit well with me I need to stop immediately.

School….so-so. I’m not really impressed with anything. I don’t really know what to do with myself since school started. I thought my junior year would be…I don’t really know but I thought it would be more than this. A job is in order. I spend close to twelve hours of my day for school, from waking up in the morning to getting home. Then I fall asleep, haha, and then wake up to rush finish my homework and then prepare for the next day. It’s ridiculous. That transfer into Environmental Studies would really do a lot for me. I’d feel so much more comfortable with being in Manhattan daily.

I saw a few websites that sell vegan/vegetarian products I have them bookmarked. When I have spare money I plan on ordering a few things. The prices where ridiculous high for these tiny bottles. I have no idea what I’m gonna do when I have to officially buy these products and then become dependent on them. I really want to switch over completely to all organic and environmentally friendly products. It’s just going to cost a shitload of money.
