I apologize. I was having a small mental breakdown during my last post, but things are all right now. Thank you for the -- virtual -- hugs, Natalie, Strawberry and Em!
The aforementioned mental breakdown was induced by my SAT score. It's not terrible and yet it's not great either. This seriously pains me. Both my brothers practically aced theirs. I had studied for it and everything. Fortunately, this is why I took the test before it truly matters. And I'm not my brothers.
My two tennis matches this week we're okay. Considering I only played doubles --and lost -- and one of them didn't actually matter, perhaps I'm not the best judge. Regardless, my school won our first match Tuesday. Go us!
Sadly, we lost our away one Thursday to a really tough team. After the match, though, we went to Dunkin' Donuts to celebrate my friend Jackie's "donut" set of 6-0. Well, we at least tried to go to DD. They had closed literally eight minutes before we arrived. Plan B: walk to the grocery store and buy donuts from the bakery. Cue the free cookies, random high-fives from strangers, fits of laughter, being collectively hit on (yes, all 11 of us) by two guys and jamming to songs on the car ride home. It made up nicely for the fact that we had been traumatized on the court just an hour or two before.
As far as schoolwork goes, we recently concluded The Great Gatsby in English class with one final discussion and have since started to read Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. Not to be confused with The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells. So far I am indifferent towards it; this may change.
I have this song stuck in my head. It's hard not to get up and dance to it.
Have a fantastic week, everyone!
