No one will read this =P

Today school was pretty average. Today in study hall I did have a conversation with one of my crushes, though ;3 it’s not a big deal or anything but it was nice. I saw him again later when I was running for tennis practice; he must be in another spring sport, probably baseball…

Tomorrow after practice I’m going to go buy a new tennis skirt ^w^. Our skirts will be black this year, but we can buy whatever style we want! Yay! \(=^w^=)/

Anyways, I was also wondering how many people actually read these. So, if you could kindly leave a comment (it doesn’t have to be long…it could even just be a smiley face) that would be greatly appreciated!!

Tennis Practice!

I had my first tennis practice of the season today, it would’ve been yesterday, but our coach was sick and cancelled. I was so exausted after practice, my throat is still a bit soar from running ^^”. I really need to get in shape…

Anywho, this morning was fun, my friend Riva(one of my friends from China) and I sang part of the song “Kan Guo Lai” by Richie Ren to Bill (his chinese name is Jingbiao ;]). Bill is a junior like me, but he is actually 19 years old! (he’s really cute even though he doesn’t speak english well…it actually makes him cuter!)

  Another great thing about today is that I no longer have an F in English! Now I have no F’s in any of my classes! Also, in study hall, I grabbed a blood drive sign-up sheet. I have only donated once before and it wasn’t exactly a good experience but it’s cool knowing that donating once can save 3 people’s lives! I also have the universal blood type (O negative) so I feel like thats even more of a reason that I should donate.

Tennis Cancelled =[ + A Bad Day…

Today was a bad day for me. It was such beautiful weather outside yesterday, this morning it was about 20 degrees Fereinheit…and I wasn’t wearing a jacket (because I had a school sweatshirt on) BRR! I was excited for two reasons today: start of tennis practices and I made my first bento for lunch. =] When lunch finally came, I accidentally knocked half of my uneaten lunch on the ground TT~TT so the only thing left that I had to eat was my overcooked mushy rice <_<” Then in study hall my teacher felt the need to remind me of the F I have in English. The only reason I have an F in English though is because right now we are preparing for the ACT and when we were taking a practice ACT English Test; for those who are not framiliar with the ACT English Test, it consists of about 4-6(can’t remember the exact number) passages that you must read and then answer questions about. Well, stupid me forgot to answer any of the questions for the last passage… I ended up scoring an 18 out of 36 as opposed to the 22 out of 36 that I got the first time I took the practice ACT English Test. Since my score not only did not improved but actually got worse, this dropped my grade to an F… TT_TT

Anyways, (sorry, I got a bit off topic, but I thought I should explain…) The last thing that added to my bad day was that at the end of the day, what do I hear over the announcements? “Tennis practice is cancelled for today.” TT.TT

After that I called my parents to come pick me up and then ended up waiting a half hour in the waiting room at our orthodontist’s office <.< At least my mom bought me some McDonald’s to make up for my ruined lunch. Then we went home and I finnished that DS game I just bought this weekend (I talked about it in my previous post) and that’s about it… Bye!

Today’s Adventure and Start of Tennis Season!

Today, I went to church, had brunch with my mom and sister at a local diner, then we went to a few stores by my dad’s work. We stopped at Old Navy and I bought a couple shirts and some new athletic shorts for tennis practice (which begins tomorrow yay!). I also started playing a new ds game today that I got at K-Mart yesterday for $15! It’s called ‘Witch’s Wish’ it’s a really cute E rated game and if you get the chance to try it I suggest you do it is really interesting and the art is drawn in a cute anime style ^w^. It does seem like a very short game though, it seems like I’m almost finnished. Anywho, right now I’m making some rice for my lunch tomorrow, I can’t wait to bring my cute little bento box to school tomorrow! It took me forever to find our rice cooker though…I really need to learn how to plan things out better.

That’s all for today! Tomorrow I’ll try to tell you guys how my first tennis practice of the season went! Ja ne! (‘Later’ or ‘see you’ in Japanese)

Trip to the Asian Market!

Today I made my parents take me to the Asian Market! =D What’s even better is that I didn’t have to pay(my parents did)! Plus there was a super cute guy working there! (=^w^=) I ended up buying matcha powder, a bento box, and a hair scrunchy(sp?). The bento box is two-tiered and yellow, I love it! I can’t wait to make cute onigiri to put in it!!! XD Also, the reason that I bought the matcha(green tea) powder is because one of my favorite youtube channels, cookingwithdog, once made a video on how to make matcha green tea icecream. They also informed me that it is a healthy treat; I thought that it would be a good idea to make some matcha icecream because I gave up unhealthy sweets for lent and it would be a good substitute for when I want to eat fattening foods. The one flaw that I overlooked was that *drum roll* you need an icecream maker to make icecream!…maybe one of my mom’s brothers has one that I could borrow…

Introduction (My first Blog)

Hello! My name is Holly, I am currently a high school student in America. Someday I would like to teach english in Japan, although I have heard that it is diffucult to find teaching jobs at the moment; I’m not sure if that is true or not, so if you know anything about that please let me know! I have recently been searching for a part time job so that I can sign up to recieve japanese lessons at my local community college. I hope that someday I’ll be able to live in Japan, whether I’m there for a little or a long time. Although Japan is the country I want to go to the most, it is not the only country  I want to go to. Some other countries that I would like to go to someday are Germany, China, South Korea, France, Italy, Ireland, and Russia.
