School, Tennis, and Everything else in between

Well. School has started. It started last Tuesday, and from Wednesday to Friday we've had heat release days, so this week was the most incomplete week of school EVER, and it still seemed to last an excruciatingly long time. My schedule is as follows:

1. Orchestra-Ms. Belding
2. AP US History [block]-Mr. Deken
3. AP English [block]-Mrs. Rahm
4. Integrated Math 4 Honors- Mrs. Baker
5. French 2 Advanced- Mrs. Wetzel
6. Sociology- Mr. Johnson
7. Musical Productions 2- Mrs. Steinhaus

Its a pretty neat schedule, and the class that I wasn't looking forward to(Sociology) is actually really interesting. The teacher is my old track coach who didn't really like me, but he isn't biased in the class room. I'm really looking forward to what I'm going to learn in that class. But I think my favorite thing about the day is Lunch, because there are tons of neat people there. AP is really interesting and fun, especially since Mr. Deken and Mrs. Rahm are really energetic and entertaining to listen to. Math isn't all that bad and Mrs. Baker is a pretty good teacher. French is outrageous! Madame Wetzel is the most flamboyant old woman I've ever met! She laughs funny as well. I can't even begin to explain how crazy that class is. Musical Productions is fun, as usual. Nothing else to say. And Orchestra is awesome.

As for tennis, I'm currently somewhere in the top 2 JV. I'll be getting a challenge match on Monday for a spot in Varsity, which is exciting. But we had our first match of the season this past Thursday...against Rock Bridge. And we lost dismally. No one won. I played 3 matches, lost my singles 1-8, and lost my 2 doubles 0-8 and 0-6. But that isn't what got me so down. It was the article in the Tribune the next day. Read it for yourself. This is what got me all worked up yesterday. I was very moody all night and wished that I had kicked Rock Bridge in the butt. It was the last sentence that really got to me. Everything else was fine...but then he had to put lemon juice in the wound. What a jerk.

Anyways, I've got a few chores that need to be done, and then I'll be practicing my serve.

Frustrating!! So sorry, girl.

You guys have an entire rest of the season to prove yourselves, though. I believe in you.

Sigh - how can I help?
