These past few weeks that I haven't posted because my computer was down and I had no easy access to internet.
Unfortunately you missed my birthday and I didn't get to write a post for it.
My birthday was of course, boring. I didn't hang out with friends, I didn't get presents, I wasn't bombarded with hugs and kisses. None of that. Instead we went to the a Chinese buffet a week before.
I didn't feel special or anything like that, just another day.
However now I am 16 years old. Yes, 1-6.
Crazy right? I started this blog in 8th grade, I'm in the 10th grade now and I am SIXTEEN!
It's nice, I can legally drive now (once I actually get my license).
Last week we had a guest speaker in Health class that spoke to us about sex, STD's, and why abstinence is the best choice to stay protected.
I finally felt comfortable talking about it. The guest speaker was a woman who actually waited until marriage to have sex. Her son is also abstinent and is currently engaged (he's still waiting by the way).
So often people rush into sex that I forget that there are people who actually do wait.
I mostly wanted to wait for religious and personal reasons but now I plan to wait because those statistics for STD's sound really scary and I want to avoid that as much as possible.
Not to mention that I will most likely get emotionally attached to whoever I have sex with and I would rather not be single after that happens.
Sabrina and I are fine by the way. I really do feel that I'm part to blame for the weirdness between us. I get really shy when we sit down at lunch next to Derek but then it's way better when he isn't around and now I don't feel like she totally hates me. I have been acting awkward and quiet and it makes sense that she wouldn't know what to say to me.
School has been great too. I got a 95 on my chemistry test and I brought my 77 to an 84 in geometry so all is good. I'm starting to understand chem a lot more and I'm learning better study skills for all my classes.
I never ended up going to conditioning either. Sabrina is sick and I didn't want to go alone so I'm going to wait until she feels better so we can be there together.
This year is going to be a long one but I'm going to make sure it's a good one.
