"To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions." - Benjamin Franklin
Countless opportunities are given to us, and it’s up to yourself to make the most out of them. Ever since I have enrolled in Fenn, the opportunities that have been offered to me are countless. Fenn had done a great job of giving me opportunities , that I would have never had if I stayed at my public school. I would have never been able to hear Malala speak, or be in a musical, or be apart of the Patriots Day parade. This list goes on, and on. Fenn has taught me that, whenever you are presented with and opportunity, you should go out on a limb and take it.
You should never turn away and opportunity to do something new or intresting. I fist learned this at the Merrowvista. I had never tried rock climbing before, and I was extremely afraid of heights. When the staff at Merrowvista initially offered me the chance to try rock climbing, I refused, but I later decided to try it out. When I was ready to start climbing, I could barely move, but I managed to start climbing. After climbing for a while, I started to feel fine climbing and I later reached the top. I felt proud of my self for reaching the top. I would have never reached the top if I didn’t take the opportunity to try rock climbing.While my time I Fenn, I took a lot of opportunities, yet passed some up. Looking back now, I regret not taking those opportunities and I can only wish now that I had.
Many opportunities will be presented to you during your life, you are the only one to make the better out of them.
Today was great for many reasons. 1st. reason: It was nice to see my friends again after two weeks and it was nice to do are occasional stupid things such as challenging each other to an ice run. 2nd. reason: I started to learn things again, and after two weeks I start to forget a lot of things I have learned and it was nice to see my teachers again. 3rd. reason: I had student life today which was fun since there was a lot of side conversations and I got to talk with friends and Mr.Smith was pretty tolerant about our conversations we held. 4th. reason: Cartooning, today was the first day of cartooning and we had some funny drawings already by some people, and it is obvious this should be a good art class. I had a great day today, and I hope you had a great day back at school.
I am happy and all that it is March vacation, yet it has its own drawbacks. Boredom, because I don't have much to do all day, and I still don't know what I am going to be doing with my life for two weeks. I don't really do anything except sleep and read and eat. Thought, I am going on a skiing trip with Elliot and Lucas this weekend, so that should be fun and I am looking forward to getting together with friends and being social. Anyway, I hope you have an exciting break!
Today was a good day. We got to watch the Mystery of the Maya movie, but it was a bit of a disappointment but it was still enjoyable. I had a study hall today, which rarely happens, and I got some work done so I don't have to do my math homework over March break. I finally got Terraria to work on my Mac after using wine wrapper, although it took a very long time. Either than that, not much happened, but I am excited for the poetry slam tomorrow, which should be a fun thing. I am interested to listen to others poems and there should be some really good poems their. I hope you had a good day!
Today was easy to describe as "meh". I had to tests today, not much happened and it was overall and average day. Not muted happened today and it was just "meh". We had the YIP card signing thing today, and I got parents of people I knew so it was funny to write to them. Blake ended up getting his parents to write to which was funny, and he wrote some funny things. Right now I just realized how many times I used the word (funny) in the sentence, I used it more times than I thought I could have in a sentence. Anyway my day was okay and I hope you had a good day.
I never ended up getting any email from schools, so I don't think they will send it through email. I did apply to Lawrence Academy but my mom never signed up for something so I never got to know if I made it in or not, so that made me kinda mad since my mom never did that. Anyway, it was nice to see Winslow again today, and he came to a lot of my classes today and it was nice to see him again. Either than that, my day was kinda bad since I waited all day and did not receive any emails from the school, so I have to wait even longer now and I have two test tomorrow. I hope you had a much better day than mine.
