Day 42 - Talent Show

In our school, every year, there is an event called the Talent Show. In the Talent Show, students can sign up on their own and perform something they are good at. There can be magic shows, singing, dancing, playing instruments and a lot more. There might be a lot of people that perform, but sometimes, nobody wants to perform. This year, a lot of new students from local schools come, and a lot of them are not performing, also, a lot of the people that perform most of the times went to other schools. So, this year, people are not really expecting much from the Talent Show, although there are still quite a number of people performing.

Day 41 - Basketball Hoopla

Day 40 - Dizzy

Today after the first period, I feel really dizzy. I can't even walk straight. I have been feeling this dizziness for more than a day or two now. This feeling makes me want to throw up.
When my friends saw that I am not feeling so well, they kind of forced me to the clinic, because I don't really want to go there. After they left, however, I went to sleep in the bed. There are nothing to do there except to sleep, so I am really bored, for I am not the kind of person that can fall asleep whenever and wherever.

Day 39 - New Students?

There are some people that came to our class for trying out, but after a day or two, they didn't come anymore. We don't know if they are leaving the school, or just have something to do, that why they didn't come. One of the new students said that she is going to New Zealand for a holiday, but even when the second semester already started, she haven't come back yet. A lot of people in our classes are guessing that they are not going to come back. Another thing is that, all the people trying out are girls, now in the mainstream class, we have more girls than boys, which is a rare thing because there are always more boys than girls in our class.

Day 38 - The Second Day of the Second Semester

Today is only the second day of the second semester. Not a lot of teachers have taught us anything yet, but we are already all piled up with homework. Some of the teachers haven't even started his or her lessons, but still give us homework. There is one teacher that only gives us some review of what we have last quarter, and told us to do 4 pages of the workbook. It is really troublesome because we have to go look up in the book and internet in order to find the answers.

Day 37 - Hurt =ˇ=

Today, at basketball team practice, when we are running  through the field, a ball from the boys' side came flying. A boy came to get the ball, and because I am facing the other side, I didn't see those coming. He bumped into me sideways. It is sideways, so it didn't hurt that much, but when I ran on, I couldn't really run straight, and sprang my ankle. That's when it really starts to hurt. I didn't rest too well, because we are upstairs, the cold wind just keep on blowing.
I think that I can walk after a while of resting, but when I tries running, my ankle kept on hurting. So, I didn't do much today, and it is so cold for not able to move.

Day 36 - Bored

For this weekend, all I did is staying at home. Although, I, myself, didn't really want to go outside because of the wind, and having nowhere to go. My parents never let me go to places on my own. There is nothing to do inside the house either, can only sleep, use the computer, cellphone, read books, and some other things that can be done anytime when you have time. A lot of people went out during the weekends, with family and/or friends. So even on the internet, there are not a lot of people that are online. Really wants to go out these days, with friends, bored at home.

Day 35 - New Clubs

Today is the last day we have club time during the first semester. So, people are starting to look for new clubs to go for the second semester. Some new clubs appear, and some old ones disappeared. Cheer-leading is still there, but there are not a lot of people in it. Today, only 5 people came, which left us nothing to do. We discussed over with the couch, and he said that we should go and persuade more people to join. Our captain is that there today, so our co-captain has to do everything. The co-captain became really upset and cried, saying the captain is not responsible. Some people that are the co-captain's friends and still doesn't have a club to join, joined the cheer-leading, which make all of us more happy, and that our club is not going down.

Day 34 - Finals and Finals

This week is the final week, which means both the last week of the first semester, and when the teachers are going to give final exams. The finals are different from the midterms. When it is the midterm exams, only a few teachers gave exams, others just give quizzes. For the finals, nearly every teacher gave an exam. The dates of the finals are decided by the teachers themselves, or they give us a choice of which day is more convenient, such as not over-lapping other exams. Although, some other exams will overlap because they have classes on the same day, but with one or two exams on other days, it really makes a difference. Some teachers; however, only told us about the exams a few days ago, which we we won't have a lot of times to study for them.

Day 33 - Flash Animation Final

I took the flash and animation class this year, and today when the final is due. People picked by the teacher will have to go, but since the class is not that log, and there are a lot of people, not everyone has performed today. After each person's performance, the teacher will ask to see if anyone wants to give suggestion or feedback to that person's flash. There is one person that always wants to give suggestions. The teacher got tired of him real fast, because he didn't give much suggestion, but instead, he said things like, "I think ___ did a really good job, and s/he deserve an A or A+" to everyone. Sometimes when he did give suggestions, the teacher will point out what he said.

Day 32 - Late For 3 Minutes

Today, again, I stayed at school. Mostly because of the Basketball Team practice. When I called for my mom to come pick me up, she said she is nearly at school, at about 5 minutes or so. I went to my locker and packed my things, which already takes up 2 minutes, then I walked to the stairs. With all the heavy things, it is really tiring to take the stairs, so I walked a bit slower. When I reached the car, my mom was really angry, saying that I am 3 minutes late. Every time when I am late, even only a little, she gets really angry. But when my brother or sister get a little bit late, she doesn't really cares....

Day 31 - English Project

Yesterday, out group went to Candy's house to film the English project. The project is to make a video out of the book "A Christmas Carol", which is a book about a man who hated Christmas. The only thing he cared for is his money, he didn't cared about the others. Then one night, his dead friend, Marley's, ghost came and told him that if he don't change, he will be a ghost that has to suffer, and that there will have three spirits that will come to him. The Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Looking at his own past, present and future got him scared, so he decided to change. He started to care about others and is willing to give others his money.

Day 30 - First Day at Basketball Team

Today is my first day at my school's basketball team. Today is a raining day, so we did not go outside to play basketball; however, we practice our physical strengths. It is very tiring, for us have to run up and down the stairs several times. Then, we have about 2 minutes of rest time, and continued to do sit-ups 120 times, and push-ups as many as you can in a limited time. The exercises are all really tiring, our strength got taken away real fast, and it is cold....

Day 29 - Sick

Got sick today in the morning. Not really sick, but still doesn't feel too well. Having a running nose all the time. The weather is just so cold these days. Although the weather in Taiwan is not the coldest, or not even close to cold compare to those countries that snows. But that's also a reason why some people feel cold here, because we are not used to cold, and we don't think that it will be too cold, so we didn't put on too much clothes. A lot of people are sick these days, which I think is how I get the germs. Hate being sick and having to go to school.

Day 28 - Basketball Team

One of my friends, who have the same classes as I am, is going to join the basketball team. Last time whenever the PE teachers asked us if we want to join the team, we say no. But now she has change her mind, probably because she wants to spend more time at school, and not just go home right after school. She dragged me into the team along with her. Even though I decided that I will join with her, when someone ask me why I am joining, I always say that she dragged me into it. It sometimes drives her crazy because she doesn't know how to reply. It is kind of my habits to let the others wordless, although sometimes it's hard to continue the conversation if you are not too familiar with them.

Day 27 - Science Fair

Today we are disgusting about the Science Fair. I am in a group of three girls. But we are doing it with another group of three. Mostly the same topic, but differently. So, it is kind of a six people group. The Science Fair this year only has a really short time for us to prepare, which is not really good for us, since we need at least 60 other people to help us. So, if we don't have enough time to meet up during weekends nor to stay after school, then we wouldn't be able to finish. This year, the presentation is on February 24th, and is given to us on December 16th, which only have two months, and about one month is breaks.

Day 26 - Wordly Wise Class

For every Thursday, we have a vocabulary testing class, which can also be called as the Wordly Wise class. It is a class where you just look at vocabularies and then take a test to see if you pass the lesson or not. The class is really boring, partly because the teacher is really strict. She doesn't let us talk, read books, sleep, or go out side of the class if nothing important happens. So, all we can do in the class is to study for vocabularies and keep quiet, nothing else can be done in the class, so everyone is basically really bored. Some people will start to pass notes, and chit-chatting. If the teacher found out, our life in the Wordly Wise class will be even more boring...

Day 25 - Staying After School

Today, I stayed after school, again. We have a class meeting, but it doesn't take too long since we don't have a lot of things to discuss. After the meeting, my friends and I have nothing to do, and so we went upstairs to see the basketball team at practice. We stayed outside the gates, because we don't want to go in and distract them. They are not playing games, just practicing. There isn't much to look at, so we start chit-chatting. Later on, it gets kind of cold, and the time passed by quite fast. So we decide to go back downstairs. It was kind of bored but fun at the same time. I wish that we can have more time together.

Day 24 - New Student

Today, we have a new student trying out. It's a girl, transferred from China. She is pretty funny and nice. She get along quite well with us. Hope that she doesn't feel uncomfortable in out school. If she stayed in our class, then we are going to have eleven girls. We have thirteen boys in our class. So, now the number wouldn't be such a huge difference. Although, I do hope that we can have more new students, boys and girls.
Today is also more a last a very happy day. Even though today is cold, I am warm inside.

Day 23 - School Today =3=

Today we have school after a two weeks' break. Everything is back to normal, basically nothing has changed over the break. I am also the same, sleepy in class...
After the two weeks of school, we are still going to have a one week break, then we are going on to the second semester. I wondered why we don't have a 5 weeks break, then the semester won't be broken, the time had been a little messed up and since a lot of people are still in break mode. It's so tiring today....
I want to go to the second semester, where we can choose classes. Really wants to change some of the classes, and I hope the new classes I choose can be better. At least not bored.

Day 22 - School Tomorrow

Today is the last day of winter break, the 2 weeks break ends really fast. I didn't go anywhere this year, because my brother and sister still haven't have their winter break yet, and my mom needs to take care of them.
I did go somewhere with my friends, but those days pass by real fast and I am back at home having nothing to do again. On the 31th though, we did go out to see the fireworks, but we stayed in Hsinchu. There isn't much to look at since Hsinchu is small and not a lot of popular singers came.
This year is kind of crowded and really cold, so we don't really like it. Next time, we will probably not stay in Hsinchu and go somewhere else.
