I keep trying to post and then something manages to get in the way. Typical, no?

This past Saturday there was a Sunsational Earthfest being held nearby which the team of science bowlers that I coach incidentially attended. They were there to participate in a hands-on hydrogen fuel cell car race. Not the solar car at the SUNsational Earthfest. Go figure.

In celebration of Earth Day I wanted to post some nature photos I have taken in my backyard. Neither too spectacular.

I dislike C's. The odd one, just a 70, has kept my B in math from being an A. Then for whatever reason had gotten 76s on the last two tests in Spanish. Ugh.

My brother is being forced to sift through college mail at the moment. I pity him, kinda. There's really not much to say. Oh, wait.

In aerobics today we were in the gym and our teacher made us do something rather than sit on our lazy bums. Katie and I played volleyball with a few other girls. We hit fairly well, but one soared into the pushed in, stacked up bleachers. I bravely volunteered to climb up and retrieve it. I didn't have a problem coming up. Coming down? Tricky. I managed to slide halfway down and I'm sure if I strained my arm while doing that. As freaky and perhaps unbelievable as this is, but the same arm just started throbbing. Ouch. Regardless, it happened two more times and this guy got up there for us. Seconds before we were told to go change it got stuck yet again and I made effort to get it. I was about ready to try what I had done before, the method that hurt, when the guy asked if wanted help. Feebly, I said yes. He then put his arms out in a circle around where my body would be, and fell into them. It felt was something from the movies. And I bet you I was blushing. As I told my friend, he wasn't drop dead gorgeous, but when he was considerate enough to do that, it doesn't matter one bit. :D

P.S. That was the first semi-hug I have gotten from a guy [outside my family] in a few months.

I originally intended to try "live-blogging" my adventure as being a bum on the couch and watching that new Spongebob movie starring Johnny Depp. Rather my mom, dad and I watched four episodes of Cheers on DVD, which are always enjoyable. We're on season four. Gotta love Woody. If you've never seen it, I highly advise you do so somehow, sometime.

I've given up on The Fountainhead. Besides, my brother needs it for his English class. I've since read The Perks of Being a Wallflower and it was okay; not my favorite book in the world. I haven't been able to check out City of Glass from the library. Point is, I am book-less and once I shake off this drowsiness, I'd like to have something to read. Any suggestions?

There was a cake contest held at school this past Thursday. my English teacher gave us 20 points extra credit points if we entered, so I said, "what the heck." Worst decision ever. [Perhaps that's exaggerating, but still.] I worked really hard to make it the best I could, though I'm no professional cake baker and/or decorator. Here's a picture, you can be the judge:

It had to deal with a book or the theme: "Worlds Connect @ Your Library" and I incorporated the worlds from one of my favorite series, Pendragon, by D.J. MacHale. I got honorable mention and therefore I won a $10 visa gift card, which loses its value by $3 if you don't use it relatively soon. Sneaky.

I had three tests today. I hope I did well on each. I'm really not sure at this point. Goo. Rah. That's how I feel about it. Plus having to dedicate my Saturday to volunteering with science. Although I don't mind doing it, I'd just much prefer sleeping in. You know how that goes.
