Months of 2009

21Nov09

January 2009: Did korean school work on Saturdays, was trying to get out of “rest” mode from winter break. Had lots of trouble with chemistry and pre-calculus.. I started with like, a B- in both of these classes haha. Did a lot of badminton practice in Moreland / @ school / @ open gyms.

February 2009: Food choice for this month was: chipotle’s steak burrito. The main thing in February was badminton tryouts. I had brought up my chemistry grade to A, but pre-calculus was still a B~.. A ton of stress in February, and a ton of badminton practice too. I went to all the open gyms, stayed after school for badminton, went to Moreland, did the usual korean school volunteering, and just stayed home and played games on free time.. I think.

March 2009: Started studying for SAT Chemistry, but it was like, just buying the book. Pre-calc was still a B by this time, and I was freaking out, haha. Got into the.. training team for badminton, by like, 1-2 people difference.. I could’ve gotten in JV, but meh. Surprisingly, I got voted as team captain for JV, when I’m not even in JV. Pretty weird. Anyhow, March was a fun month. I went to all the badminton practices, made a lot of new friends, and also ate lots of Chipotle (once again. hehe.) Life was real good in March.

April 2009: This was the official freakout month for me. I had SAT Math and SAT Chemistry coming up, so this was a very stressful month for me. Studied day/night (?? im a liar.) Chemistry was a solid A by then, pre-calculus STILL a B, not even a B+. A lot of badminton in school and outside of school. Also started planning for Senior Day for badminton. Otherwise, April was cool.

May 2009: Most stressful month ever. Seriously. The first 2 weeks were crazy with all the SAT II studying going on. Choice of food for May: homemade food. My mom made sphagetti (a lot) when I wanted it. MUAHAHA. Also had senior day preparations for the first 2 weeks, then had Senior Day. Senior Day for badminton was a blast with good food and just running around day/night to prepare for Senior Day. As a sophomore, leading an event like that with some juniors was pretty darn crazy/exciting for me. I still remember all the times I got into a car – with juniors like Victor / Will driving – and them yelling at me to go get my shit. LOL Otherwise, the last 2 weeks of May was a blast, sort of. A bit of studying for finals near the last week.

June 2009: Best month prior to summer. Studied for finals for the first 2 weeks, and also played a LOT of games like Combat Arms and Counterstrike:Source. Went to friends’ houses many times, and ate out most of the time. When finals were over, just stayed home and played games all day until June 27th, which was when I got on the plane to Korea. Occasional meetups with friends here and there, but not much in the last 2 weeks. The first 2 weeks were a blast though — with all the end-year celebrations and eating out haha.

July 2009: Boring month. Was in Korea, and went to academies. It was worse than school. I saw a lot of beauties in the subways though. Made some new friends – and I still keep in touch with them! Very nice. This month was about finding music to listen to on the subway and the bus. May also be called: the month of YouTube.

August 2009: Boring month again. Stayed in Korea until August 25th~, and school started on the 28th. Played FlashFlashRevolution in PC Rooms for about 3-4 hours a day, 1-2 in the morning and 1-2 on the way back home. Got 1st place in Masters division. [or 8th in Gurus]

—Went to Comic-Con 87 during August 24th and the 25th. Bought lots of goodies, and became an official otaku by buying 20+ wallpapers, although I can’t put them on my wall for now since my mom won’t let me. -_-===

September 2009: Best month of late 2009. Studied for SAT I this entire month. Was worried about grades at first, but all my AP classes had solid A’s until the end of September. Freaked out about SAT I on Facebook most of the time, and actually, played no games besides a bit of Maplestory on the weekends.. September was good. I got to enjoy life a lot.

October 2009: Took the SAT I, and got a pretty good score on it. My grades were going strong, especially Calc. Bio slipped a bit because of the Chapter 40/42 test. Homecoming took place in the last 2 weeks, and it was AWESOME! The juniors beat the seniors (first time in 6 years) and I’m proud of it. October was also a blast – except the week-long sickness and the swine-flu rush over our school.

November 2009: Current – grades are strong, life is okay, just glad I don’t have like, straight B’s. 🙂
