Converse speaking- its school again...

So for me school is completely in session. Its hard to think that summer was just a few weeks ago- but anyway, I don't know about you, but for me I can always tell when I'm back in school.
- My alarm goes off and I realize that its not by accident
- I open my school email and actually have homework, not just private jokes with friends
- I always trip over stuff on my floor in the morning, but this time its my science binder instead of a pile of magazines
Have any rituals that let you know your not going to have a social life for the next 10 months?
I don't know any one else- but for me it always seems like the farther I get into school the less social I become. I have homework everyday, including the weekend, and several sports practices. I guess its just a piece of getting older... what happened to the days when I had to write a review for a book and that was all my homework for the week?! When I could go to my friend's house Monday night without worrying about studying for tests.
There are lots of pros and cons I guess when it comes to growing up. Its nice to have more freedom, walking to a restaurant with friends, but you almost never can due to school schedule.
When I was younger I always thought it would be cool to be on a sports team, but now I realize its a lot of hard work- getting up at 6:30 on a Saturday morning to go practice. But the feeling you get out of it is so worth it...
Overall, I'm sure the pros outweigh the cons for the most part, but I'll admit, I wouldn't mind not having any homework.
See ya,

Vans speaking-- baby sittig tips

Hello. Sorry converse and I haven't posted in a while. I know I have been busy with skool, homework, learning how to ride a unicycle, volley ball an all the other normal everyday things that I do :) anyway, I was talking to my cousin today- just FYI we r close, I try to call her often since we don't live in the same state- and she was like, "u haven't posted in a while." and i said something like, "whoa, the kid in the restrant next door to where I am sittig goes to my skool." and she said, "vans ur getting off topic." anyway. I relized she was right. So I decided to post baby sitting tips. Random i know. But it better than nothing right?!?!
Here it goes:

1. Rubbing their back helps them fall asleep.

2. Playing the alphabet game helps them
Fall asleep( the game where u think of an animal that starts with a, then b...) BUT DON'T TRY TO PLAY THIS GAME WITH KIDS WHO HAVE NOT LEARNED THE ALPHABET YET-- I learnt the hard way…

3. If they say, I'm not tierd! Tell them,"to bad,
u have to go to bed
Now." but use different words. Don't tell the kid, " ok! U can stay up!"

So, I know middle skool is when u start babysitting so I hope this helps.
Vans, who just told a
Kid to go to bed :)
