Now what to talk about?

So I decided to pick up blogging. It's like a drug, everyone's doing it. Why not try it right? So I'm thinking of doing just a casual blog that dives deep into random occurrences in my life. I wasn't sure when to start it, but there is no better time than the present.

So today I actually went to school and didn't laze out and stay at home. Recently I've been falling into a bad drift of staying home, even though I was sick last week. I was even staying sick even though normally I would be well enough to at least function in class. The parade is over, and my current goal is to not miss a day for the next 3 weeks.Gasp!

I had a test in AP Lit, nothing big. Pretty easy. It was over Hamlet, and I must say that Spark Notes functions so well in today's world that I can't imagine reading another book that doesn't actually interest me. Why bother when I'm making above average grades with mediocre preparations? I can't be bothered to go all out in something I'm the least bit interested in.

The bell rang at 2:10 and study hall for football starts 2:20, for everyone who goes ofcourse. Not me. I go straight to the parking lot, hop into my car, and went straight home. Why? I was injured for a solid 8 weeks off of a broken foot. Even if I went to practice today and every day from now on, there would be no way I would even see the lights shine on me Friday night. Now this is kind of strange that a 6'0", 285lb black guy who benches 365 won't ever step foot on the game field, but that's how my school works. It would be silly to function any other way right? To give my coaches some credit, I'm not prepared at the moment to play, but even if I was, I wouldn't play. It is very discouraging to see the person next to me make simultaneous  mistakes, but when big 'ol me makes one, I'm told to get out of the play. The amount of mistakes I can make (the ironic this is that its during practice) is capped far below the average person on my team. Hey, it's whatever the coaches want right?

Not a very amazing first blog post, but it's something. Probably going to spend the rest of the day on super street fighter 4 and studying for AP Calculus. Other than that: sleep.
