I highly doubt anyone checks my blog anymore. I haven’t used it for a year. But to anyone who remembers me having this, and checks back up on it out of nostalgic reasons… I’m not okay. I’m really the farthest from okay. 

Have a wonderful day.

I highly doubt …

High School Recap

I started high school recently, and let me tell all you TPS &/or East Central haters:
I absolutely LOVE it there with all my heart.
To give you a breakdown of all my classes and such, I’ll explain the scheduling.
We have A Days and B Days. On A Days, you go to classes 1, 3, 5 &7. On B Days, you go to 2, 4, 6, &8.

A Days:
1. Coach Hill, Oklahoma History.
I love this class. Coach Hill is awesome and a good teacher. Great way to start out my A Day.
3. Mrs. Hrdlicka, Pre-AP Geometry.
I love Geometry. LOVE it. It’s so different from Algebra, which I HATED WITH A FIERY PASSION.
5. Coach Gray, Pre-AP Art.
I love art. I just love it. This class pushes me harder than I was last year, which is odd because all we’ve drawn are spheres, eyes, shading bars and animal skulls. But Coach Gray is a REALLY good teacher and I look forward to this class every A Day.
7. Pre-AP English, Mrs. Diamond.
I have no strong feelings of like or dislike for this class really, it just is. I think Mrs. Diamond is pretty and nice, though.

B Days:
2. Health, Coach Brown.
Okay, this has to be my favorite class. I love learning about health! I thought it’d be only physical health when I first saw that I had the class, so I got scared because I’m obviously not the physical health type. Then once I got into class I saw that the course mostly covered mental, social and emotional health- MY FAVORITE THINGS EVER TO LEARN ABOUT. Plus, Coach Brown is an AMAZING teacher and makes me laugh.
4. Pre-AP Biology, Coach Bell.
To start things off: Coach Bell is adorable. Just sayin’. He wears the BEST clothes ever, has cool hair, and in Ashlin’s words, looks like a Teddy bear.
I love the class. We start off with a writing prompt every day, and what does Ali love??!? WRITING. Then we watch a comedy video to put us all in good moods. We have hour and a half classes, which I LOVE, ’cause I get more time for fun stuff! And to, like, work or something…
6. Leadership, Ms. Steele.
Another eh class.
8. French 1, Mrs. Fleming.
I love French. Love the language, love the class, just love it. It comes easily to me.

So, all in all, I absolutely am in love with East Central High School. All those who put it down or put TPS in general down, get bent, because I’d never want to attend another school. <3

Thank You For Seeing Me.

I remember something happening.
It was really close to the end of the year. I walked to QuikTrip with some friends after school.
I was walking a few steps behind them on purpose. I was fighting back tears, big time.
Only Windle took the time to notice that I was falling behind and that I was almost crying. I assured him that I was fine.. I wasn’t, but I lie about being okay every day. What’s one more?
I can’t for the life of me remember what scarred me. I seem to be getting a “someone called me fat” vibe.
What if I start blocking out all my bad memories like that?
I won’t remember half my life.

Will It Ever End?

I feel so helpless.
Like anything I do is never enough. Like no matter how hard I try I’ll never be the best at anything.
I thought I was way past all the self-doubt. I thought I’d won the fight. I thought I deserved happiness.
Boy was I wrong.

There’s No Chance Unless You Take One

This is shaping up to be THE BEST SUMMER EVER.
I haven’t done much of anything physically other than sleep and watch TV, but I have learned a lesson that I’d like to share with all of you.
Take risks. Tell people how you feel. Speak your mind. Do things you’ve never done before. Do what you want. Be who you want. You only have one life to live and it could be gone in a flash. Taking that chance just may be the best decision of your life. Your world could come together based on your action. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Take it from me. It’s worth it. <3

Screw The 2000s.

I think that growing up in the 1970’s would have been the best thing ever. I want to be like the kids on That 70’s Show. The ’70s would have been the BEST time to be a teen.
All this social networking crap is getting out of hand. We have a congressman Tweeting pics inappropriate of himself- thanks to the mindset of this era. The line between acceptable and unacceptable has been blurred. Do you knowhow much easier life would be without all the complications Facebook causes us? How many fights have you gotten into over something stupid on Facebook? I can name at least 5 myself. ’70s kids had it better. We’ve become so dependant on this stuff that we do whatever we like with it.
And this goes for all technology- back then, all they needed were TVs, record players, telephones and radios. Now we have MP3s and iPods and tablets and touch screen EVERYTHING. It’s innovative, but excessive.
My dad grew up in the 1970s and he turned out fine, so why do we feel like without our cell phones we’ll absolutely die. Because we’ve grown attatched.
Another thing- BETTER MUSIC. Boston, Led Zeppelin, Kansas, Toto, Heart, Blondie, Journey, the list goes on.
Today? Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Far East Movement, Black Eyed Peas. Even the names cannot compare.
’70s lyrics: “And even as I wander
I’m keeping you in sight
You’re a candle in the window
On a cold, dark winter’s night
And I’m getting closer than I ever thought I might..”
Modern pop lyrics: “Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard
When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard
Sippin sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6
Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6
Like a G6, Like a G6
Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6.”
Back then it was all about love. Now it’s all about sex and drugs.
I can’t speak for all of today’s music nor all of the 1970s, but I see quite a difference.
I could get into so much more.
I was born in the wrong era.

Graduation Day

Today has been saddening. I’m in my language arts class currently, and I’ve been an official freshman for about two and a half hours.

Graduation was as expected- awards and 200+names. I got a medal for excellence in choir, language arts and academic bowl. I got certificates for having a 3.5 or higher GPA all three years of middle school and for placing in the top 5 percentile on the ACT Explore test.

It’s almost the end- of middle school, of eighth grade, of Foster Middle School (Project Schoolhouse is changing it to East Central Junior High next year) and of this era of my life.

A lot has happened this year, but as I look back at it, there’s a lot I regret. I regret getting caught up in the drama, making a big deal of things, being overdramatic and just getting worked up over nothing.  I regret downgrading myself and making bad choices. I regret quite a few things, but most of all I regret slacking off.

But I digress.

Overall, this year has changed me- and I’m ready to let next year do the same.
