I would have never thought i would come to have such a strong connection to a building, nonetheless a school building. Central Park School is this place. The “A place to belong” posters strung around the hallways always seemed cheesy to me, but now i realize it really is a place to belong. Next year i will be moving on to Bremen High School and, suprise, i am going to graduate away from elementary school in one quarter of a school year. That also means leaving behind 10 years at the miraculous school central park (If you include pre-k) and i bet some of the staff has had some, umm, interesting moments involving temper with me in the years past, but the way the school responded to my issues really shaped who I am. I have some of the best moments of my life just at this school. Heck, i still remember being pumped to go into 1st grade and see the other side of the school for a change of scenery. Before i get too carried away just know, that it has been my honor to stay in Central Park school all the years i possibly could and i wouldn’t choose any other school over CP, but now i am on my last moments at this school and i hope to have even more perfect memories at the school awaiting for me, Bremen High School.
Glowsticks and fire is basically all you need to have friday night summed up for me. The first day of spring, so my parents jump at the chance to have a bonfire to somewhat celebrate? Anyway, we had some of her friends come over and it all went downhill. We had glowsticks that you wear for a necklace. My moms friends kids and I used the rope for anything but necklace. All you need to know, is flying glowsticks. You can fill in the holes for that one. Luckily no fire incidents, surprisingly.
So i went to guitar center for the first time and i was astonished at their humongous selection of music gear. The title would have you think that it only sells guitars but it sells way more than that. Basically, if you have even had a sliver of thought for learning an instrument, go to guitar center and pick up an instrument and try to learn by asking for lessons. They don’t pull any shenanigans and try to give you the best deals possible. Guitar center is essentially a paradise of a store.
Speaking of firsts, i also went to another store for the first time this weekend. The Farm & Fleet. I was genuinely surprised that it wasn’t just some random country store that mainly appeals to more of a country lifestyle. It had almost anything you can think of, from toys to electronics to lawn mowers. This place was bizzare. It was basically a cooler walmart and i loved it. I didn’t actually get anything, but boy oh boy did i want everything i saw. If you couldn’t tell, i have been through alot this weekend, hence why my SOL’s are so darn late. So thats my excuse or something.
Earlier today I went to the St. Patricks parade in Tinley. I got left out on alot of the candy because I was the oldest in the group i was with but i still enjoyed it very much. The people were nice and the kids were cool and it was just such a positive place to be. It was very fun to say the least. I even got a temporary tatoo of the “Two Men In A Truck” logo that went well on my guitar and then I went to trade with my younger sister, Cindy. It was a very fun experience and I cannot wait for the next big parade that comes.
So i didn’t post yesterday, but i have a perfectly good reason (yes the will be 2 posts in 1 day). So my family and i went to my moms friends house and we kinda wasted all day and it was really boring all day. Night approaches and then we start to go bowling because somebody brought it up. We hesitated but went anyway, then we found out that it was blacklight bowling and we could bowl until midnight. Eventually we got so tired that we were throwing gutterballs left & right but my moms friends kids wanted to keep bowling so we couldn’t just leave. i eventually got to sleep at around 1:30 because that was the time we actually got home and all that. I have never been so tired of bowling in my life
Guitar hero is by far my favorite video game of all time. For 5 years I have played it, so I am really good to a certain extent and I still play it along with my real guitar frequently, but there is one thing that I did yesterday that I never though I would do. I beat guitar hero 3 on expert. Now this wouldn’t be a big deal if this want a notoriously hard installment to the series. I genuinely never even came close to beating it on expert in all of those years, but yesterday I did it. Nothing made me happier than beating it on the hardest level difficulty after all these years. It may sound cheesy but it really is a big deal for me…
