Guess What?! I have some news I wish to share with you all... A lot of you that were around this time last year probably remember me having a hard time with doing a speech for English class. And having to ask my teacher to let me deliver my speech to her instead of in front of class and it was this HUGE deal...right..
 
Well, guess what! I have the same teacher this year for AP English...well, our assignment was to memorize a sonnet written by Shakespeare and say it in front of the class! Then, we had to write a parody(which is like a poem that pokes fun at another poem) and we had to just read it to the class. So, I had to go today...I have worked on memorizing my poem the last couple of days. And today was the day. I told the teacher that I wanted to go first which was a big thing for me, obviously!
 
So, we could stand up or sit down in the front of the class. I chose to stand up, the first to do so. I said my poem, only pausing once or twice(even though I knew the whole thing through!) And I ended up making a 95!
 
But, the thing is, I felt really bad cause this one girl was so upset about having to do it, she first went off to the bathroom and came back and then she kept messing up and even cried. And then another girl had to go and she even started crying. And the others were complaining to the teacher about how stressful she made our lives and she felt horrible cause she actually made 2 of her AP students cry at the same time! And she didnt think the poem thing was going a big deal!
 
But, I was SO incredibly proud of myself because I went first and made the choice to stand up in front of everyone, just for the experience. And I did good on it! I was SO excited I couldnt stop smiling... And I didnt even feel it was a big deal. It was the good kind of anxiety rather than the kind I had last year! Apparently my medicine is helping me. Which I have noticed since I started taking it months ago...but the thing is:
 
I DID IT!!!!! ANd it was AWESOME! I was SO happy and SO proud of myself! I told her that afterwards and she said I did a really good job and that I had come such a long way and that she was really proud of me as well! Which made me feel SO amazing!
 
So, I had to run and tell you all about it!

Hi Christi,

I am so happy for you. Sounds like you did a wonderful job. I feel bad for the two girls that cried though. Aren't you happy that you have gotten past all of that? You are getting really confident of yourself and I am so happy for you.

Way to go girl!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs, Karen

Yes, my next task is to take over the world! devil
 
haha, kidding! Yes, I have been very happy since then. Im just really proud that I dealt with it. And I should give lots of credit to my meds for actually helping me not to worry, but next to that, I made the decision to go along with it and do it! I went and told her how proud I was of myself and I know she was excited for me! And yes, I felt really bad for those other girls...I know exactly how they felt..only I never cried in front of the class...I hid my fear. But, they made it through it as well...unlike last year when I cried everyday at home and still didnt do my speech in front of class...
 
But, its still a VERY big deal for me! I never do anything like that. And Karens right, I am gaining confidence, very slowly, but surely.. I have accomplished alot lately that I wouldnt have been able to do before. Which is HUGE! But, I appreciate you all being here for me! Ahh...if I can just get through tomorrow...NO SCHOOL on Friday or ALL of next week! 10 days off for Spring Break! I cant wait!!!

Cool Christi,

Ten days off of school, what are you going to do with yourself? I am sure that you will stay active. Just make sure that you enjoy yourself, you deserve it.

Talk to you again soon.

And GUESS WHAT!? I had a Calculus test today... I ACED it! 100 A+ YAY!!! So, I aced my economics test today also...then I helped a friend study for math...and then we talked in 3rd period..math test in 4th period..and now I just have to wait for another hour and then Spring Break begins!

Im in such a fantastic mood though right now! I accomplished my poem and all my tests and my brother made it to Arizona(as far as I know) and right after school, my other brother is getting married and then we are having a reception with a bunch of hs friends(whom I hang out with all the time) and I may even go see a special someone after that! I feel so much better now though! Knowing I can just relax and not worry about school for a week. And next week, on Wednesday, I am going to go volunteer at the hospital, because I havent gotten to since New Years and I miss them all so much! And next week some people I know are opening a teen club close by so I may go check that out... That might be fun! I dont know...so I already have some plans to spend time with my "significant other"! And just RELAX and CHILL!

Guys, I am so happy, and excited, and proud...and all kinds of other good emotions right now... And this is something I havent experienced in a VERY VERY LONG TIME. Thanks guys!
