2 days ago, I helped out at my placement school for track and field. The kids (Grade 8s) were so happy and surprised to see me :) and we had a super fun time together.
But you can’t imagine the shock registered on my face when I saw that they did not have high jump as a field event. I mean, that was my favourite event.
And I was the shortest person in my Grade 8 year, yet won third. That’s probably why.
The day flew by, and you can’t imagine how elevated I was to know I didn’t have any marking, planning, or photocopying to do, meaning I actually left the school at 3:10 like a normal human being. Except I forgot to take home my reference letters and Saturday school homework, so now I have to go back tomorrow. :( I love the school, but it’s just so far.
After my sweaty day, I went to Someone~’s house to finish up the other model, the Tower of London. This model was so difficult that I didn’t even take any pictures of it. We had to deconstruct it to remove the inside walls. ): Now it looks like a see-through abandoned building, which is more creepy than monumental.
And when we finished, imagine our fury when we realized we were missing two pieces. And they weren’t any small, unnecessary pieces either. They were the pointy steeple-roof parts!
We scavenged all over his room, but to no avail. It was all in vain. I had to go, and then right when I got home, he texted:
oh hey i found the missing pieces lolol
I asked where they were, and turns out they were on the floor.
At least it’s done? But I don’t have a picture of the complete model then. ):
I really shortened our expedition for the two missing pieces, but really, it was a tough quest. I’m only making it super concise because it’s 2:02 a.m. while I’m writing this (I’m publishing my posts only when I have all my pictures), and I’m super tired.
I raked sand all day for track and field, so I have valid reason to make my posts choppy and whatnot!
And no, I don’t want to do it tomorrow because I’m going to forget details. … Even though I did take out a lot of the details here but that isn’t the point!
Anyway, good night, my <20 readers! Again, I’m surprised anyone wants to follow up on my life. It’s interesting, but bizarre and fascinating.
