Going Through Grief

I might not post for a while, since, as the title says, I'm going through grief at the moment. That's because, at 5:36 this morning, my grandmother died. I was her favorite grandchild, and she meant the world to me. I just wanted you to know that I probably won't post for a while, and I wanted you to know why. ~RJ

Sorry I've Been Away...

But I've been super busy! I'm in: Scholastic Bowl, practices are Mondays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:00, and the first meet is on Monday, with a tournament on the 10th! Jazz Band, and practices are Tuesdays at 7:30. Madrigal Brass, and practices are Thursday mornings at 7:15. Sauk Valley Band, and practices are Mondays at 6:30. So, you can see that my only free days are Wednesdays and Fridays, and those days I have homework to do, well, and weekends of course I'm free, but then I forget to blog! I should have SO much to say, but I can't think of anything right now to tell you, really. Oh! Actually, I have something related to a previous post that I could say! Remember last year's "I refuse to take dinner with my show!" post? Well, this year I'm getting dinner WITH my show! 'Cause I'm in Jazzy Band! Other things I've done: Helped build the Freshman Float for the Homecoming Parade. Been in the Homecoming Parade for band. Gotten used to the Sousaphone being on my left shoulder. I once held it for like twenty minutes straight! At least more than fifteen minutes, 'cause that's how long I actually knew the time for. Started the Genetics unit in Biology. YAY!! I <3 GENETICS! Became obsessed with Nickelback. Participated in the Three Rivers Conference Band(it's technically the Three Rivers ATHLETIC Conference, but what the heck!). Gotten a GREAT report card. Only one "C"! Been AWESOME!!! Yeah, I've been pretty busy alright! So I hope you'll forgive me for not blogging for a while. By the way, this post brings 2012 into a tie for yearly blog posts with '10, with 25! Yay, right? A LOL for you: Spell Checker suggests Rickenbacker as a correct spelling of Nickelback. Well, it might not be a LOL, but I think it's funny! Also, check out @MHSScholBowl's #MathMondays! I got one right on Columbus Day, but that was the only one I tried I've been forgetting lately... #MathMondays is one math problem every Monday, done by Mr. Smith, or as Mom calls him, Mr. Hottie, the Scholastic Bowl coach. And I'm not afraid to put his last name on here since Smith is like the most common name ever. And sorry Mom, but I had to put that you call him Mr. Hottie! It adds to the hilarity of this post, which was almost nonexistent before. I think that's enough for now, I've been digging around in my brain for long enough to get stuff to tell you. So, Bye! ~RJ
