The first day of school was August 8th. This first day wasn't like every other average first day, it was my "last first day," of Senior year. I'd been dreading not only going back to school in general, but the fact I'd be starting the first day of the rest of my life. It ended up not being as scary as I'd sought out for it to be, and it felt like any other normal day. We spent most of the day in our home rooms and then continued to go to our 6th,and 7th periods. I was disappointed when I got to my 7th period,which at the time was Spanish 1 , and saw the class filled with no familiar faces. At first, I thought to myself, with it only being the first day,someone I know will get transferred in here so I shouldn't worry. We never have had after school band rehearsal on the first day of school, so I was more than eager to leave school , and get home to take a nap. As soon as one of my friends since 1st grade, Kelsi, and I began to walk towards the exit doors of the building it started to come a monsoon outside. Not even minutes later Kelsi got a call from another one of our friends informing us Kelsi's foreign exchange student and sister were already outside waiting for her , locked out of Kelsi's car , in this pouring rain. Kelsi had worn nice sandals to school that day so it was going to be a lot harder for her to run in the rain for her than I, so I take her keys and run through this down pour and unlock the car for Madeleine and Kaylee to get in. Let's just say we weren't all the prettiest looking at the end of day 1.
Day 2 went just about as smoothly as day 1. I can't quite remember what all classes we went to but we started out in homeroom, and started out our days the rest of the week the same. Later on in the day once it got to 7th period the teacher started talking about how she teaches and how the class would go along during the school year , and I saw the same faces as I did before, no new ones. I decided at the end of the class I didn't want to continue to be in it. Once talking to my grades guidance councilor, I made a decision to start taking French 1 during the current access class I had,and drop marine science , which is a total bummer for me, and I would now be a teacher aid during 7th. It would also be one of the hottest days of the week, and the first day of the practice for the week. Yipee.
We have seven periods on Mondays, Tuesday's, and Friday's, but on Wednesday's, and Thursday's we are on a block schedule, and have a special study skills class. It usually depends on the mood that day of how fast it goes. Easy to say day three and four were both pretty effortless and both went by pretty fast.
When Friday finally came along, I was definitely more than overjoyed. On the downside, we had another hot and muggy band practice. The drumline had plans to go to Sonic for a slushie and chill after practice, so at least I had something to look forward to after wards. Once practice actually ended ,my friend Kendra rode with me to sonic and we met up with Luke, Chloe, and Ashley, and eventually Je and Mike, our drum major, showed up quite a bit later. After our hang out sesh, Kendra, Chloe, and I went to her house and ended my first week of school with some crazy chalk coloring. All in all it was a boppin' week and I'm excited to see what the rest of senior year has in store for me.
