Apologies for dropping off the face of the Earth aside, I've been too busy for leisure activities! Actually, that's a lie. I still make time for TV, books, movies and...well, pretty much everything else besides blogging. I'm starting to think I should apologize.
Tennis has consumed my life. If I'm not at practice, I'm preparing to talk at practice so I can fulfill my duties as co-captain (it's kind of a long story) and if I'm not doing that, I'm cheering everyone else on at matches. That's right. I'm on Varsity...but I am two people shy of actually playing. I have since resolved my anger and embarrassment, yet the aftertaste of resentment lingers. By deciding I wouldn't just quit all-together (it certainly crossed my mind) I have sold my soul and am slowly suffering in misery instead. Don't get my wrong, I want the team to go far and to do well, I just feel like I'm being used to take pictures or boost morale with absolutely no compensation. And if having the title of co-captain is said compensation, I don't want it. We have our fourth match tomorrow and I am tempted to study physics throughout most of it. I won't be doing much else, anyway.
The new physics teacher has meant an uneasy transition. Most of my classmates worry he won't help us pass the exam, as do I. Now I dread the class, honestly, and am an avid clock watcher. It doesn't help that it's right before lunch, either.
So, Valentine's Day happened. I basically spent it handing out cupcakes to my friends and eating the excess frosting.
I feel as though I should have more to say... oh, right! Like last year, I took a trip to University of Florida to tour the campus. Except, unlike last year, I got to visit with friends. Did I take pictures with friends? Nope, of course not. Here's what I did manage to capture, though:
(Insert pictures later, for now I must run to a retirement party for my 4th-6th grade teacher.)
