So what's been going on in the last week?
How nice of you ask *false modesty*. Anyway, summer gym started... and it sucks (reader: *gasps*... no!) Despite what my friends who had taken it said, I still thought it wouldn't be very hard. That was an underestimation. Well, it's okay, I guess *feeling a bit less dramatic*. You just have to run a mile, play some sports, and swim. But if you're like me, meaning that if un-athleticism was a sin, you'd be in hell, prepare to look retarded in front of a bunch of jocks. Lol, oh well, there's academics, so I can win some of the time. I'm thinking about joining Quiz Team next year. I've heard the "oh, you'd get made fun of so bad if you did that" crap, and truth is, I really don't care. It would be fun, and I think I would be good at it, so why not? If smart isn't cool, then fuck cool. Like I said before, I would assume that by high school, people would be a little more mature than that.
Last weekend, I went backpacking with Katie, Hannah, Mom, and John at Zaleski (a park in Ohio). We hiked about 9 miles, with packs on our backs of course (mine weighed about 25 lbs). Yeah, un-athletic doesn't necessarily equal unfit. When we got to the site, we played cards (getting a tad bit better at ERS) and ate sodium-packed dehydrated meals (cooked of course). Note to fellow backpackers: go with Mountain House, that's the best brand. We also played Would You Rather, which is one of my favorite games right now. (For those of you who don't know what it is, you basically take turns asking "Would You Rather... *names two options*" and everyone has to answer it. Ex: Would you rather... burn to death or freeze to death. Some other ones we came up with: Would you rather... be blind or deaf. Would you rather... someone with no arms or someone with no legs (Robbie's question. No one's been able to beat it). Would you rather... Fred or George. Would you rather... Crabbe or Goyle. (Fred or George, or Crabbe or Goyle, which is the bigger difference, if any at all)? I think you've picked up the pattern by now.
