It’s amazing how much has happened in the past week or so:
Last Thursday, I got my temps after taking the written driver’s test.
A long time ago, I went with my father when he took the CDL test there. (A CDL is the test you need to take if you want to be a licensed truck driver.) Back then, the test was a long Scantron test. Boy have things changed. Now, it’s a computerized system that gives you an accompanying picture, lets you zoom it in, and immediately tells you which questions you’ve gotten incorrect, and why. It even lets you take the test en español. (I didn’t, but I could’ve.)
We won against Kings and Colrain. Unfortunately, the game against Turpin wasn’t quite so easy. We struggled to take the lead in the first few rounds, and Turpin led after the team rounds. The Alphbet Round tied us once again, and the entire Lightning Round was neck-and-neck. We came out winning by two, but Turpin decided to challenge an earlier decision for two points. They won the motion, once again tying us. So there were five Tiebreakers. Turpin won by one point. The next round was a Bye (a free period) for us. The next round, we had to win against Moeller, and we would go upstate to Columbus. Perhaps we lost our morale after the Turpin match, but we easily lost against Moeller.
It was a true disappointment. I was also disappointed because I had to sit in the audience and just cheer them on. There was only one bright side to this: I got to eat lunch at Bruegger’s Bagels. That was delicious!
This coming Friday is MusicFest 2003 at school. That means that we basically show up at school and do whatever we want to. School bands will be perfoming outside, the Library will be used for videogames, the Cafeteria will be for DDR, and there may be a movie being shown on the big screen in tX. Earlier this school year, you may recall, I reported live from Spirit Day, our school’s other true “play day.” Unfortunately, the IT Department has since blocked every website hosted by Netfirms, including mine and DJ’s. So I will be providing an overview of the highlights of the day on this weblog that afternoon. I may write the actual report during MusicFest.
