march + april babble: hublubb


Hello friends,

This has been a long over due post! Since not much happened in March, I decided to combine the two months together. 

March
     I can't remember much from this month at all. I do remember what a stressful month it was though! The last week was spring break for me, which didn't feel like much of a break at all.The previous week consisted of pulling an all-nighter: revising a seven page paper for my English class on an author whose books I read. (I chose Oscar Wilde, love his writing! Maybe I should make a post about him?) When I got home that Friday, I passed out till the next day—boy it took a lot of work!
     The following week (spring break) wasn't all fun and games either. My friend and I went to a boot camp for a national test coming up, aka the Act. It did have it's perks, though. I learned lots and was provided free dinner–bonus: I saw a old friend I haven't seen in years, and I mean since elementary school. Unfortunately, I didn't muster enough guts to even say hello, but I did flash a smile. This pretty much sums up the talk-worthy part of March!



April
     Moving on to a more busy month, this April has been one of the most nerve racking months for me! I'll start with the more exciting parts first though. I got to go to a prison. Now, before you start giving any weird looks, hear me out. My English class and my friend's English class (a grade higher than me) got to go the prison they filmed Shawshank Redemption. I haven't seen the movie before, so please tell me if it is a good watch! Any way, back on topic: The place looks amazing. It's been closed down for about twenty years—I believe that's what our tour guide said. But, don't take my word for it, let the pictures speak for themselves:



     See! I will tell you—it was miserably freezing in there since there are no heaters in most areas. (Imagine this place in the winter time!) Now onto the nerve racking part... I had to do a presentation to over forty people, about why they should elect me for an officer for one of our groups at school. A couple things you should know about me: 1. I can be pretty soft-spoken 95% of the time. 2. I have bad enough social anxiety as is. And 3. I am horrible at public speaking and presentations. Even if I have a thought out plan prior to presenting, which I did have, it never goes according to plan. I'm pretty much Murphy's law in action!
