I am in a writing mood today. I've got a bit of homework... and a cello and violin to play, though. I wish I had a lot more time in the day to do the things I want to do. It's already six o'clock, and I have to do A.P.U.S.H. and American Literature homework, including the make-up work from when I was absent yesterday. I should go to bed by at least 10:30. Homework will take me an hour, at least. I hate having so much to do and so little time to do it.
I wish it were summer time. I would have all the time in the world to do what I wanted to do, be it play the cello, the violin, write, blog, read, sleep... spend time with friends. What am I going to do with myself for the next month and a half? I'm going to go crazy, that's what. But I am going to do everything in my power to keep from going crazy.
In literature, we have a new assignment. When my teacher assigned it, I nearly jump with joy. We are assigned to do my favorite thing: write. I am to write a research paper about a person who was influential in American history. I chose someone I can relate to; a writer and a poet: Maya Angelou. I went to the library and checked out her book: I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. I haven't read all of the book yet; just the excerpts that they include in middle school literature books. I honestly cannot wait to read and write about Miss Angelou. I am excited.
Well, I guess it is time for me to get my chores and homework done, and then hopefully obtain some "me time."
