Seoul or Tokyo? +A Brief Tennis Update!

I don’t know if I want to go to Japan or South Korea… maybe I should go to both? …I would like to stay in one of those places for a while maybe for college exchange, or become an English teacher there. It doesn’t have to be Seoul or Tokyo, it could be a smaller city; I might actually prefer a smaller city. However, if I do go to one of these places, I would like to learn the languages before I go there and I’m afraid that if I try to learn both languages I will get confused…Please feel free to comment on this topic, I would like to hear your questions,comments, and concerns =]

In other news, my tennis game was cancelled yesterday due to rain. Actually we were going to play until one of my team mates slipped on the court and the other team got scared, I think, and called off the game. Then, today, our practice got cancelled (even though it was beautiful outside) It did rain later in the day, but I think practice would’ve normally been over by that time. Tomorrow I might buy a prom dress! I will try to give an update tomorrow.

All in all, it was pretty boring today, but I did teach myself a few korean words! Annyonghi-geseyo! (formal goodbye if you are leaving; informal is: Jal-it-ssoe)

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!
