Goodbye Junior Year

Hello lovelies! Today I’m, unfortunately, not going to be introducing you guys to a new place to go in your spare time. I kind of just wanted a blog post to myself today. You guys can learn a little bit about me and my junior year, while I’ll have a bit of something to look back at and be like “Oh my gosh, Junior year… Yeah…”

This, is Mr. Ziebarth, one of the most lively and full of enthusiasm teacher I’ve ever had. It was Halloween and we, our AP English Lang/Comp class, went outside because there was a fire drill during first period. At this point, school was still pretty fun, nothing stressful yet, and I still felt like a sophomore living the life of being able to sleep at 10:30 or 11:00 at night. Oh how I miss that ever so much.

This is one of my favorite pictures of the school year. This is David and he is full of sass, but everyone just loves him. This was during Bell Week on Tie-dye day, I’m not sure which day of the week.

I also took a picture with Cynthia who’s also in UndrgrndOC. She’s very stunning as you can see. She’s helped me get through Junior year. Whenever I needed help with something, she’d be there for me. Whenever someone was annoying one of us, we’d complain about it. We’ve been through a lot together, but she’s probably the only reason why I didn’t leave high school and go to community college. Yeah, I actually thought about it. Haha…

Oh, my lovely group, excluding Bree. Unfortunately, there’s not enough desks at our table for her to sit with us, but she sits at the next table with Vicki and Maggie, close enough for us to still communicate with her. We, as a group, have gotten so close. This was the day before their AP English exam. I didn’t take it because of personal reasons, but hopefully I can take it next year. 🙂 There’s Andrew with his pancake that Mr. Ziebarth made, Naomi with her tiny little thumbs, and Cynthia and Sebastian with their amazing smiles. I couldn’t ask for a better group. I’m really going to miss them. Hopefully I’ll see them a lot next year. ❤

Well, just for the fun of it, here’s another picture of Mr. Ziebarth. Here’s the thing, I was going to take a picture of our class with my phone, but I didn’t know that my front camera was on so Mr. Ziebarth poses for the camera, and I just clicked the camera button. I will always have this picture, that’s totally not creepy. LOL… He has no thumbs. 🙂 Cool right?

There’s also this that I wanted to talk about. Here’s Naomi and me with cut out hearts. FVHS ASB decided to do this lovely thing called “Share the Love”. For every student at our school, they got a heart with their name on it, and there was a cute little note on it. It brought smiles to people’s faces and made us feel special, maybe for the first time, who knows. It was a very sweet thing to do, and I’ll probably keep the heart for the rest of my life.

Here’s one thing that I won’t forget about junior year. I will never forget that in every class, no matter what class it was, I would always keep checking the clock to see when we would get out. I was so tired. I had tennis and all my homework to do, I didn’t really know how to balance all that out. I also live in a house with 8 other people, so it was hard to concentrate. With that being said, I couldn’t focus on my homework, so it took me a lot more time to finish my homework. I then started to finish my homework at around 12:30 or so, but even when I got into bed, I couldn’t call asleep until 2:30. I would wake up two times each night, and it was a pain going through that every single day. Hopefully, my senior year will be better. Maybe I’ll adapt to my environment. I’ll never know what’s ahead of me. I’ll just have to keep living life to see what’s up for me the next day. Maybe something awesome will happen.

Knott’s Scary Farm

The event of the year.

At least to me. The decorations, the monsters, the acting, I love it all so much! Walking trough the front gates you can see the monsters waiting in the shadows, ready to jump and frighten anyone and everyone. The whole park filled with people all wanting to have a spooky night, begging for a chance to have the ish scared out of them!

Last Friday night I went with three friends, all of us scary farm enthusiasts and excited to see all the new mazes. For those who don’t know what knott’s scary farm is, its basically an amusement park turned evil, with all the lights dimmed and fog machines and people dressed as terrifying creatures roaming around the park. Also added are about nine different mazes, each with their own themes and each with monsters waiting to jump out and hear you scream. Naturally i wanted to go to every single one, but as time would have it, i only visited four, but they were amazing. I’ll tell you about me favorite, Dominion of the Damned. DoD is basically a maze set in the 1600’s where classical music took off. The maze continuously plays eerie classical music and throughout the maze there are pictures and gory organ covered violins. The monsters in the maze are my favorite, all once-humans who’ve been transformed into vampires. Their faces beautifully powdered and carefully drawn on, each having a unique black pattern that you can see as they get near you and hiss. The maze then goes outside to a garden with statues- except some of the statues are actually full body painted scarers, screaming as you walk by. The maze is definitely an eye-please.

This maze can be very compared to the scarlet letter in many ways. First, the atmosphere of the maze is very similar, all not being what it appears to be. You know everything in the maze is just waiting to jump out at you, but you still admire the beauty of it, much like the Puritan town, everyone is hiding secrets and sins of their own, yet everyone interacts with each other as though they’re all saints. Throughout the maze and the book you have this eerie feeling of deceitfulness and you just can’t wait for the end to come so you can see how it all turns out!

I recommend everyone taking time to go to Knott’s Scary Farm next year, its a must go for people looking to get scared, and when your 18 you can even be one of the creatures lurking in the shadows!
