Hi everybody! (Hi Doctor Nick!) How's it going? I haven't been writing as frequently as I would've liked to (not true. I didn't want to because I was lazy), but now that two days ago was my two year Tv.com anniversary, I want to start out with a new string of blogs.
First off, I'm starting high school this Thursday, and I recently (about two weeks ago) got my freshman schedule. It goes as followed:
1st A) Living Environment 10 Honors Labs
1st B) Gym
2nd) Living Environment 10 Honors (Dejavu?)
3rd) Geometry 10 Honors
4th) Global History 9 Honors
5th) Spanish 2
6th) For the first semester...Introduction to Science Research
For the second one.......Health
7th) LUNCH (this late?!)
8th) English 9
9th A) Band 9/10
9th B) Chorus 9/10
I'm glad to say that I'm in more than my fair share of honors cla$$es. I'm actually really excited for high school, although I am bummed that summer seemed so quick. What's really weird for me is that I somehow make it seem that fun times seem to linger longer than boring times (which I bet a lot of you would envy). An example of this would be when I went to Six Flags New England last Saturday with my dad's side of the family. That small day seemed to make up for an otherwise boring summer.
I was pretty annoyed for the past week or so because of a screw-up in the mailing of the schedules. My friend Chris, who lives in an area that usually receives school notifications ahead of me, never got his schedule. He lingered waiting for it for more than a week longer than I did, so eventually his mom had to pick it up. Turns out, we're in the same Living Environment cla$$ (but oddly, only EVERY OTHER DAY), the same Global History cla$$, the same Science Research cla$$, the same Health cla$$, the same Lunch period, the same English cla$$, and the same Chorus period. Yay for me.
However, although school is due to start this Thursday, and even though I have Monday, Thursday, and Friday off next week for Labor Day and Rosh Hashana (spelling?) respectively, I may have this Friday off as well. The reason?
I'm not sure how many of you recall that I live on Long Island (in New York), but as of this point, there is a slight possibility that the Category 4 hurricane could strike Long Island sometime on Friday. Note I said SLIGHT, but that doesn't indicate that it would strike at tropical storm strength or something like that (like how I posted about Hurricane Hanna in 2008 ). I'm talking about if it strikes, it's likely to be a CATEGORY 3. That's worse than Hurricane Gloria in 1985. With 115 mph winds possible, my house is screwed, for it's on a huge hill with like ten fifty-foot tall trees surrounding it.
This really sucks, because I'm supposed to leave for a trip to Hershey this Saturday for Labor Day weekend. If the storm passes at that time, I'd doubt we'd like to drive in torrential downpours with, once again, 115 mph winds. As of now, we're not canceling though, because the projected path isn't certain as of now. The official weather report for the next few days indicates than on Friday here, only showers and high winds will occur, but the storm's still near Puerto Rico right now. It's still strengthening, although it's already at category 4 potential.
I'm probably going to post a live video about the situation sometime before Thursday on my Youtube Channel, FernandoCrescando (for those of you who didn't visit already, I'm starting to post live vlogs, you might wanna see them). But for now, my family, friends, and the rest of Suffolk County is in mass confusion right now, but I'll get back to you when I get all the details.
It won't necessarily be funny, but wouldn't it be weird going to school on Thursday, then finding out it's destroyed by a hurricane the next day?
