In terms of the interwebs, I completely fell off the edge of the world. I'm so sorry, I feel like I've ditched all of you. I hope everything is going well. A lot has happened in the past couple of months.
Tomorrow marks the last day of high school for me. Finally. I'm ready to be done, to be honest. It's all so tedious and I just need a break. My graduation is on the 29th. I might whip up a quick digital picture for that. I don't know. But I do know that I'm valedictorian, so I have to present a speech in front of everyone. Public speaking is my nemesis, so it'll be hard. But I'm going to prepare in many different ways. I have some Propranolol in the line up, as well as good old-fashioned practice. Hopefully, it'll go according to plan. I can say right now that I have confidence in myself! We'll see if that changes... though...
I've gone through a lot of medical issues, namely the headaches I mentioned in my last journal (or did I?) There were a lot probable causes, some worse than others. We think it was correlated with my anemia and extreme workouts in track. Then it was suggested that it might be a brain tumor. Then it was chalked up to the anemia and stress. If I still have headaches after graduation, we'll look into some more tests and brain scans. Until then, I'm just going to not worry about it.
Speaking of track, that didn't go as well as I had hoped... Because of my issues, I wasn't able to run. But I was able to high jump. I got to focus on that. Some people might think that was good, I'm still undecided. I did fairly well in it, too. I missed qualifying to regionals by one place, because I had one more miss than someone else did. I was so upset and distraught. I bawled the entire time. 8( But everyone has such wonderful hospitality. My friends and their family members were super supportive. All the kids from other schools too. And my coach was very supportive. I was named Athlete of the Week for the local newspaper that everyone reads. (It's for a big city in our area.) I also received Scholar Athlete awards from the Army and Athletic Association... as well as the coach's award, where my coach gave a wonderful speech about me.
I suppose I'll post an art dump if I ever get around to taking pictures of my traditional work. I have a couple pieces that I'll upload sometime soon. As for animating... I haven't had the time, but maybe I'll have time this summer. I need something to spark my interest again.... I don't know for sure if I'll have a lot of time this summer because I have to work. My dad got may be able to get me a job at his workplace, so I'll be working five days a week for long hours. I'll be entering data or something..? It sounds like a pretty good job to me! And I'm 99% sure I'd be making a large sum of cash... at least large for a teenager like me! In addition to that, I might be attending some cross country conditioning practices.... I'm not technically 'part of the team' anymore, but certain people really want me to come back.
So, as I type all of this out, I realize that, hey, I actually have a lot going for me. I'm in a good position at the end of the year. Overall, I thought my senior year pretty much sucked. I lost a lot of friends, got some new ones. Almost got sucked into some bad situations. Had a disappointing run sports wise.
I've heard from multiple people that everyone thinks highly of me. Got a lot of attention with my art produced in art class, got attention with my academic related activities/achievements, got a lot of attention in sports even though it's a different sort of attention than what I had originally thought. I have a job hopefully planned out for this summer, AND I'm going to a wonderful college for a wonderful major in the fall. I guess I have it made...
I could go into further detail about things, but I'll save the trouble. I want to hear from you, since it's been forever. What's new? Anything awesome happening? Make anything awesome lately? I haven't really had the time to go through all my messages, so I probably accidentally skipped something I would've loved.
