So I woke up nine o'clock this morning. At first I forgot that there was no school, so I rushed out of bed and woke everyone up. They all were a little annoyed and told me that there was no school. Once I remembered it had snowed, I immediately went outside with my dog. Turns out that we are fully snowed in, no school tomorrow either so I guess it is time to relax. I decided to read Moby Dick while sitting by the fire place. Is there anything better?
So today everyone at school was talking about the huge blizzard that will cancel school. I am as excited as everyone else! There is going to be no school on Tuesday and Wednesday!! I am just going to relax. As they say, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire so delightful, so let it snow.
So I was a little to lazy this weekend. I woke up this morning thinking, I wonder whats due.... Turns out I have about three hours of homework I have to start doing. I have a feeling that this is going to be a long day.. *sigh*
So today my parents told my brother and I that we were being to lazy. They forced us to go outside with my dog, at first we frowned upon the idea but then we came up with something to get right back at them. We decided to make a couch, a snow couch. It took us a whole hour but it worked, my mom walked out on the deck and saw us snoozing away in our brand new snow couch. The joke were on you guys Mom and Dad!
It is Friday! Weekend!!!!! I have all my plans set out for this weekend, my first thing is doing nothing, then some more of nothing, and a little sprinkle of nothing. I am just going to take it easy this weekend, already looking forward to a nice afternoon. I heard it was going to snow so maybe I will go outside for once.
For the last couple of days many have been sick. My parents are both sick at home right now, my brother is starting to get sick and half of the kids in my classes are sick. Some people say it is the flu going around but others say it's not. Usually I am the first in my family to get sick when flu season comes around but I feel great. Maybe I am immune some how. Anyways I hope it goes away quickly because I hate being the one who has to do everything for everyone in my house.
Wednesday was fun, I only had three different classes, there was not much homework and we got to wrestle with nobles. It would have been even better if I had no test wednesday though. Anyways not much happeed, waiting for friday...
The time when you remember that it is almost friday.

My parents complain and complain
they tell me to do what I DONT want to do,
Go outside, Go clean your room, Go and do the dishes,
arghhhh!! I wish I could decide something for once,
my parents should learn to let go, like birds let go of their young when they learn fly,
when I hear those words, "do your chores" I feel like my heart got pierced by ice,
let me do what I want! let me do what I feel like! let me do what I can!
its like I am a dog, do this, do that!
Ill go outside when I want!
that bird all alone survived, so will I,
Let me stand up for myself, let me live how I want, let me do what I want.
What a day... Today we learned many things, I wont get into the details because then I would have to remember stuff and it would get boring, but to summarize it I learned about poetry, geometry and some Spanish. Then I had a study hall where I studied, that was my day, not that interesting right? Well it got better at home, ohh wait no it did not.
I was home at about 12:45. I had to skip wrestling practice because my mom was home sick by herself and I did not want to leave her there. I also had to study for a global studies which was what I did most of the time. So at about 10 pm I went to bed and was still bored out of my mind. This is my average day at Fenn, I almost enjoyed being in English class (Just kidding English is always fun).
Her hair was up in a ponytail
Her favorite dress tied with a bow.
Today was Daddy's Day at school,
And she couldn't wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her,
That she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone.
But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
Of why he wasn't there today.
But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.
But the little girl went to school,
Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees
A dad who never calls.
There were daddies along the wall in back,
For everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently,
Anxious in their seats.
One by one the teacher called,
A student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.
At last the teacher called her name,
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn't there.
"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out.
"She probably doesn't have one,"
Another student dared to shout.
And from somewhere near the back,
She heard a daddy say,
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day."
The words did not offend her,
As she smiled up at her Mom.
And looked back at her teacher,
Who told her to go on.
And with hands behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child,
Came words incredibly unique.
"My Daddy couldn't be here,
Because he lives so far away."
But I know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.
And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy,
And how much he loves me so.
He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
And taught me to fly a kite.
We used to share fudge sundaes,
And ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him,
I'm not standing here alone.
"Cause my daddy's always with me,
Even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
He'll forever be in my heart"
With that, her little hand reached up,
And lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,
Beneath her favorite dress.
And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
Her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
Who was wise beyond her years.
For she stood up for the love
Of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.
And when she dropped her hand back down,
Staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
But its message clear and loud.
"I love my daddy very much,
He's my shining star.
And if he could, he'd be here,
But heaven's just too far."
You see he was a fireman
And died just this past year
When airplanes hit the towers
And taught Americans to fear.
But sometimes when I close my eyes,
"It's like he never went away."
And then she closed her eyes,
And saw him there that day.
And to her mother's amazement,
She witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children,
All starting to close their eyes.
Who knows what they saw before them,
Who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second,
They saw him at her side.
"I know you're with me Daddy,"
To the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
Of those once filled with doubt.
Not one in that room could explain it,
For each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her,
Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
By the love of her shining bright star.
And given the gift of believing,
That heaven is never too far
