i think i've held back long enough
i went to the chicago concert in augusta last night. i really wasn't sure what to think, the way my dad talked about all the pot-heads and crap lmao. but it was totally awesome, a thousand times better than i expected. i'm not even a huge chicago fan, i've only heard about five of their songs, but it was really cool. especially watching sarah's mom get all riled up. it was the highlight of my night when the band started playing and nancy screamed, "hey, i made out to this song once!!!!" lmao good times i even bought a $30 t-shirt...*blushes*... don't tell anyone though...
i'm really stoked cause i passed all my finals. i know what some of you are thinking, but seriously, i'm not as book smart as most people think. i only know useless trivial pursuit kinda crap...i'm not big on studying. but i'm especially proud cause i passed pre-calc. i got an 80 on the final...how? even i don't know considering i got a 50-something on the midterm. but i passed for the year with an 82. i'm sooooo glad it's over. i don't think i could've taken anymore of the gilb-monster.
the only thing i'm bummed about is that coach invited me to go to the maine games and do books. i guess they need somebody down there to do books during the meets...needless to say, i was beyond flattered that they asked me. but, alas, i hafta work that night. i'm really kinda bummed about it...*sigh*....maybe i'll figure something out...
