Diary of a Freshman Week 8

October 9, 2015

I’ve been sick all week. Like literally, the only day I went to school was Monday. I went to the Talent Show and Homecoming Dance, but missed so many events “I can’t even”.

The Talent Show was amazing! Everyone’s acts were so unique and the amount of people there to support was unfathomable. I think my personal favorite act was Magic Mark. Maybe it’s because I’m a 5 year old when it comes to magic, or maybe because I’ve met Mark and he’s a really cool guy.

Although I have a favorite act, know that all of the acts really bewildered me and, ni a way, knocked my socks off. The only downside to screaming at the show was not having a voice the day after.

I also went to the Homecoming Dance and can I say, WOW!! So many people came, dressed up in amazing outfits with amazing dance moves. The podiums, or stands, or colorful things that come up from the ground, were one of my favorite parts. I swear I danced on those things all night.

I know, I’m sick and shouldn’t have gone to a dance if I hadn’t gone to school. But I don’t regret it. I’m going to have to make up tons of work but I swear, I couldn’t even stand on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday I had the worst stomach ache ever and I’m so glad I didn’t throw up. On Friday I could barely breath because it hurt.

But on Saturday…. I felt good. And either way, my friend had already bought my ticket and there was no way I was going to back out of a free party. Plus it would be mean to have someone buy a ticket for me and not even go.
