Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
And I’m back to the grind! I ran this morning! And I’m waaaaay out of practice! Awwww!!! So I have to run more!!! I didn’t run much when I was in Japan, though I did a lot of walking, and then I was sick… but I gotta keep my girlish figure somehow!!!
I don’t even know what that means. I’m a girl, so by definition, my figure is girlish, right? Maybe I’ll ask Jack.
And then I went back to work. The owner was happy to see me, and I brought back some souvenirs for him too. I got him a maneki neko! A lucky cat! They sit in a shop with a beckoning paw and are supposed to bring good luck and fortune. He loved it! It’s sitting next to the lotto tickets now! I told him about Sabby wanting me to go to school, and told him my schedule might be seriously messed up. He understood and said that’s what happens with high school and college students, but he’ll try to work around it. He’s always taken care of me, but we’ll see.
So I have so much to do! Beth is going to take these classes too, so we have to take a TSI test, Sabby has to fill out some forms, and so does the guidance counselor or something from the nearest high school. I have to do that very soon in order to enroll, so we’ve scheduled that for early next week. They have a sample test I’ll take tomorrow and then spend the weekend boning up on things I don’t know. I think I’ll do okay on writing. After all, I write here all the time, and it’s good!
Beth is better at algebra than me, so maybe she can work with me. Algebra is easy! If I have n pieces of chocolate, and I eat two, how many pieces of chocolate do I have left! It’s a trick question! I ate n pieces! I’ll have zero left! Hahah!!!
I’m a little nervous about it, but oh well. Sabby’s not wrong, and it’s her way of making sure I have an education that will help me get into college. I’ll take the SAT test at the end of the year.
Beth and I might be going to school together!!!
The good news though is for dual credit courses 12 credits are free!!! Sabby was happy about that, too!!!
Also as I said next week I get my real license! Yay!!!
Oh so much to do!!! But at least I feel better! Dave celebrated by grilling tonight! Oh YUM!!! Ai is jealous!!! Allison was reading all about my trip to Japan too! Now she wants to go! Maybe someday she’ll go to Japan and she’ll get attacked by rabbits! It’s fun! But she was telling me also about a dance camp she went to. She’ll have to show me a dance! I can’t dance! I’m good at a lot of things, but I’m clumsy. Last time I tried, I ended up breaking something!
