Senior Awards Night

So tonight was Senior Award’s Night.  I got 2 awards! yaaay.  The “Outstanding Industrial Technology and Engineering Student” and the Service Awards.  Lol, I’m not even gonna be an engineer. x)  Yay for Robotics and actually knowing the teachers that decide who gets it. haha.  Well, I didn’t get the award that’ll let me walk by myself, or the title of Summa Cum Laude, the 3.8+ GPA one…  I think I missed it by 0.5 or less.   So I got Magna Cum Laude, the 3.5+ one.  So when the Summas got called up for academic honors, I was just sitting there by myself with 2 other people I didn’t really know, since all my friends got it.  Except for like, some in the back of me.

So I can now conclude that my biggest regret in high school was not knowing the importance of GPA until my Junior year.  So in my freshman and sophmore years, I had like, 3.5, 3.7…. sigh.  Well, now I know what it’s for.  At least I found out in my Junior year of HIGH SCHOOL, and not college.  Yay for positive/optimistic thinking 😉  So I can also conclude that it’s just impossible to bring your GPA up from a 3.68 or whatever to a 3.8, even if you get 4.2s the entire Senior Year.  Well, at least I know that I tried.  Well, I don’t think it can get worse than my friend who just missed it by .05.  Now THAT just sucks.

So it was an okay awards night, the slideshow was okay, I got a lei, and a dirty/dusty bot guy plushie…  I bet you my teachers had one sitting in their room, so they just thought, “Oh hey! Why don’t we just give it to ______”  I should come up with a fake name for myself.  Kachan.  My friends call me that because it means mommy in Japanese, and I hated it.  But now I just got immune to it.  So hi, my name is Kachan.  Kachan who only has 7 days of school… Hoooolllyy poop.

Freedom of Having Your Full License.

So, since I was bugged by someone…. (you know who you are) to post more often, I shall commit like, 10 minutes of my bored time writing about what I did earlier tonight. Oh by the way, 11 days until graduation.  And only 7 days of legit class periods left.  Holy (insert bad word for poop that starts with a c here.).

Anyways, that means our Senior Awards Night is coming up.  In fact, it’s tomorrow!! Yaaaaaay!  Hopefully I get some sort of scholarship, and some sort of award.  I know that I’ll get some sort of award, whether it’s a scholarship or academic honor or whatever, but I’m hoping I get this specific one that allows you to walk the line at commencement by myself… *prays*  So again, anyways, they show an end of high school slideshow at the end(?), and my friend (let’s call her… Okinawa.)is in charge of making it.  So that’s the beginning of why tonight happened.

So my other friend (shall we call him…. OCD) signs on to MSN at… like,8:30.  He then goes, “Wanna come to Starbucks and help us with the slideshow?!”  Well, I ask my mom, and she was like yeah sure.  Didn’t expect that.  Haha.  So in the end, I end up going down at 9:00pm, to Starbucks.   The power of holding a full license yo.  Then we end up facebook stalking people to find out the “juicy” rumors of some people…. and find pictures for the slideshow.  Then it was like, 10:00, and Starbucks kicked us out since they closed.

So we lost our source of WiFi (which we really didn’t need), so we went to Safeway to get WiFi again.  When we got there, “OCD” jumped into my car, and was like here, and slapped a package of KETCHUP in my car.  KETCHUP.  From Burger King.  And it turns out that I had ketchup too!! In my WALLET.  hahaha!  Well at least I know that it was from today. lol.  And also, it turned out the WiFi section in Safeway was closed, so we just went in and bought Cupcake tins for “OCD” ‘s mom.  … then we went outside to our cars (“OCD” even suggested that we finish the slideshow in his car, which we DIDN’T do because that would be uncomfortable….).

So when we were back outside again, and freakin “OCD” sticks the ketchup on my windshield wiper, so that started a whole war of sticking the ketchup packets onto each other’s car.  Then I remembered that I had a pack of cheese from Pizza Hut from my brother’s sleepover party in mid April x)  So that also joined the war. hahaha.  So I think in the end, “Okinawa” took home the two packets of ketchup after “OCD” threw it in her car, and that cheese packet is…. probably in “OCD” ‘s…… probably.

Oh the freedom of having your license 😀

Commencement Tickets

So…. 26 more days until my graduation.  Craaazzzyy….. Overly used, but these four years went by too quickly.  And I think it’s only like… 19 more actual days of school. @_@ Dang.

So in our school (maybe all schools are like this), we have song practices every Wednesday until commencement now, and a student can earn commencement tickets for themselves per practice they attend.  And since everyone had 2 practices (except the tickets committee who had to attend every one, so we had to go to both the girls and guys practice since we had separate ones till this week),  everyone earned 4 tickets – 2 from the song practices, and 2 from paying their class dues.

So the distribution went really nicely, very very smooth.  So why am I writing in this blog when I should be writing up my AP Art homework?  Because I feel like ranting about the process of MAKING the tickets.  So I went over to my friend’s house to help her make these (you have to emboss the ticket and number it) stupid tickets, to find that the number stamping thing the teacher gave us was broken. whooooo.  So we ended up calling the teacher (to find out she’s catching toads outside… >_>), and she told us that she’ll get us the number stampy thing the next day.  So we worked on embossing the tickets….. which takes too much time and effort… It’s really nice, how it’s nice and bumpy, but in order to get that nice thing, you have to first stamp it with the special ink, then powder over the ink, then blow dry it with this special heater thing.  You might be thinking, yeah yeah yeah, stop complaining, but we had to do like, 1000+.  ooo….. #__#  So in the end, it got really late, so I could only help her make 200 of it….  And that poor girl had to stay up until like 4 in the morning to finish the rest of the tickets last night…  At least it came out looking pretty 🙂

Reflection:  Let’s start this earlier next time. LOL. 😛
