Gliding across the frozen water, the steel of my blades transmits every imperfection through my body. It is nothing like the smooth ice of a rink, but it still draws us to it. It is nowhere as close to better sibling that we normal use. But for some unknown reason the feeling you get of going back to the roots of the game and playing it like we once did is unmatched. Skating on a pond is not perfect but there are some things about it that make it enjoyable compared to skating on an ice rink. Yes, it is more bumpy and there are no boards but when it is like this we all realize that we are not there to play the most intense game so instead we just have fun with it. We fool around and try to dangle through everybody because it is our time to get away from the pressure of a game and try new things that we would never do it a game but rather for fun. Remember when I said yesterday that I would do something, while I did. I broke the spell of the lazy snow days.
Waking up late because I know I can, for today is another day inside. Another day of sitting around and doing nothing. I say nothing but I did a lot. For some reason on days like this I think that I am dong nothing but I filled the day with reading Moby Dick and shoveling. So although I got a lot done I have this strange feeling of me being lazy. Although tomorrow is another snow day I will hopefully do something interesting, not that Moby Dick isn't, that I can write about. I need to get out of this house because I feel like I have been trapped forever and I need to break free of the snows command. I love snow but I swear each week of snow days trapped inside I start to hate it more and more, I am sorry that all of these blogs have been the same but I am sick of these snow days so I promise that I will come back with something more interesting to talk about tomorrow.
So as many of you know I am on a robotics outside of school, and with the team we compete in qualifiers with the chance if you do well to move to states. So a few weeks ago we had are first qualifier which we ended up winning but that is a story for another time. So this qualifier that was supposed to happen today was not so important to us because we already had a spot in states but this was a bigger competition than before so it would be good practice for states. So we worked hard all weekend in preparation for this so the commitment was there before and competition is all day, so overall I would have spent a lot of time this weekend doing that stuff. So this morning I got up at the crack of dawn, way too early for anything, to drive to David's house because he would be driving me to the competition in the morning. But as I was pulling in to his driveway he texted everybody in the group chat that the competition would be canceled due to the snow. So at first I was annoyed that I had to get up early for nothing and that we would be missing it in general because I enjoy it but after a few minuets I was relieved as well because I get to rest on a sunday, which is rare these days. For this blog I was going to talk about the competition but as you now know that cannot happen.
Before when I said that I don't have much to say I was correct but now I have nothing. The only thing that I did today of yesterday is homework. Especially nothing I have a lot of homework because tomorrow is a D day which is my worst day because I have all my classes that give homework on one day so the night before is what makes it bad. So tonight will be a boring night unless you enjoy doing homework, which most people in their right mind don't. The only remotely interesting that is coming up is my robotics competition on sunday. I am excited going into it because the last one we went to we won by a landslide which means we move on top states so we don't really need this second qualifier but since we are a rookie team we get to have two chance to get to states. So until then my week will be more homework and not getting enough sleep, but then again I never get enough sleep.
Although it feels like it has been a long time since the last school day it truly has not been that long. Unfortunately most of us were still tired from the extra long weekend and today was no easy day to come back. It was full of things to do in each class because the teachers were eager to get caught up with all the lost time from the massive amount of snow, a record breaker in a ten day span. The two things on my mind are the WW Fenn and Moby Dick. I think that in class we should do some work with our WW Fenn because I feel like I need practice speaking it and trying without the temptation of the page below me. Also Moby Dick is getting interesting and I hope that we talk about it and watching the movie in class will be interesting. Sorry this is short but I did not have much on my mind but I guess that that is sometimes a good thing.
So as you all know today, Tuesday, was another day off of school with a snow day. Since this is the fourth snow day in 10 days it caught me off guard which was a good thing because I had finished my homework yesterday. For the most part snow days are a good thing because it gives you a break from the busy, stressful school life. Unfortunately for some reason these days have given me a bad feeling. I just feel like I am behind on something but I don't know what. Especially in English because we have so many assignments that are ongoing and I feel like I am behind but I don't know how. And today I spent the entire day trying to fix my internet which still does not work properly and yesterday I shoveled all day with still some to do today. Although I am glad that we had all this time away from school I am glad that we are finally getting back into school life and talking to my teachers and satisfy my unprecedented worrying.
So as most of you know this year the New England Patriots are facing the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl. So this weekend and especially sunday new england sat down in front of a TV and sat there for the entirety of the game until we (New England) either won or lost. Myself, like most of the country did, went to a super bowl party to enjoy the watching of the game with other people who would also spend their night that way, I don't just want to recap the game because i'm sure that most people reading this know that the New England patriots have won Super Bowl XLIX. If you watched the game you will know everything that I am saying but I can not help myself from talking about the game. So in the 3rd quarter everbody I was watching with thought the game was already over and even I who consider myself to be optimistic was thinking that it was. But as the Patriots scored there touch down to make them only down by there the part seemed to become alive again, but we were not there yet. When the Patriots scored another touch down to make them take the lead we all knew that we would win somehow but none of us wanted to admit it because we would jinx it. We were all sitting there nervous but as we made that final interception we jumped in the air like the rest of new england did because we could finally say that we had one. A few hours before that we knew that school would be off so we did not have to worry about staying out too late we just could rejoice with all of New England. So here I am monday morning after I slept until 12 still awestruck about what happened last night and no better way to celebrate with no school. I hope you all are having a great snow day and i'm know that I am. I don't know what I am going to do today but I am thinking of going out later. Now come on Bruins do you job.
