My Somphmore Year {history}

Ok. I haven't posted very regularly. I apologize. My life has been loaded with craziness. First we had company. Grandparents. An Aunt. And then out of town friends. All of that was followed by exams. Then graduation. And now? I am done with school...or sort of done. 
I still have Algebra to burden me all summer. 
Math is my raincloud that follows me wherever I go. We, Math and I, are not friends. The only thing acquainted with math that is my friend is... my calculator. And my calculator and I happen to be  wonderful friends!

Leaving my sophomore year behind should be amazing but I am not parting with it easily. I loved my Sophomore year. Yes, I loved it even with Chemistry. I learned a lot from my Chemistry class. 

1. I am not as smart as I thought I was. 
2. There is a wonderful world of numbers and equations out there
3. A world that I will never understand 

Besides Chemistry, this school year was lovely. And now, knowing that it's leaving forever and so are too many of my friends...I am sort of sorry to see it go. Yes, even Chemistry. 

Another sad part about moving on is that so many of my good friends are graduating this year. One of them happens to be my brother. 
Zach and I have experienced this whole education adventure side by side. In other words, next year will be the first time in MY LIFE that Zach won't be around to take my school books and hog the computer or help me study and answer the questions in class.  When's a bigger time to realize your growing up than when you find out your classmate for life is going to college next year. I feeldreadfully old. 

I guess I should say something about my big brother... I could say a lot. Zach and I have always been close. When we were little, we did every single thing together. His friends were mine. Even now, when we study, we end up talking like grown ups and that cool sibling bond is still there even though we are almost complete opposites. I hate the idea of his leaving our family, leaving it to be full of little girls and girl talk and girl stuff. Sometimes I just need a practical brother to even out all the girlishness in my family. Sounds strange coming from a girl, but that's how I feel. 
  Zach reminds me constantly not to be weird. Or maybe reminds isn't the right word, he pleads. He is always my dose of reality after I am lost in another world.

To sum it all up:
my big

So, yep, that has kinda been a picture of my life lately. I've been super emotional and not social enough and I think if I'm not careful this summer I may become a hermit. Ok, one day at home doesn't make you a hermit. I exaggerate to much. Yep, that's another thing Zach always reminds me about. Next year will be...well... different without him. 



  1. I love, love, love the three things you learned for chemistry!!! I am so using that for all my science classes. Because I love them... right????? Oh, how I wish.

  2. Yay! You figured out how to comment! Yep, science is definitely a learning experience. ;)

  3. Hello, Madeline! Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog. <3

    I actually took chemistry in my freshman year and biology in my sophomore year (this year). I totally agree with the three things you learned. This year I'm actually skipping junior year, and going straight for senior; which is sort of scary considering I'm only 15.

    The relationship between you and your brother sounds so, so sweet. I wish my siblings and I got along so well. <3
    I'll definitely follow your blog.

    1. Wow! Jordy, it sounds like you are going to have a tough year next year. I'm so impressed. It's so neat you're skipping junior year.

      My relationship with my brother is far from perfect, just a working progress. ;)

      Aw! Thank you so much for following my blog. I get so excited every time I get a follower. <333
