Happy first day of Camp NaNoWriMo to all participating this year.
Happy April Fool’s if you’re into pulling pranks and practical jokes.
Happy first day of April to everyone else.
Of course I totally forgot about my anniversary until WordPress reminded me. Happy anniversary to me, to this blog, to aspiringwriter22.
Logic dictates that if you’re reading this, you’re probably not writing. Unless you’re a multi-tasking god. As you were.
Anyhow the people at Grammarly sent me this lovely infographic on sports and writing. Strangely enough I sort of gave up watching and playing sports for more time to read and write. Enjoy.
The full infographic can be found here.
Talking to students from other schools got me thinking. Why does my school (MCI) lack so many clubs, committees, teams, etc? I’ll list a few of them below.
To be fair my school had one which lasted all but half a year give or take. Don’t quote me on that. Long story short: some grade 12’s decided to start a club they weren’t even passionate about. Hence the non-existent, sorry excuse for a newspaper committee. Anyway, a friend of mine was reading her school’s newspaper today. Another friend who goes to a different school mentioned they had one too. Which reminded me all too clearly why my high school does not have a proper newspaper. The wonderfully committed grade 12’s abandoned the project halfway through. My friends wonder why I don’t start it up. My answer: half the school is not literate enough to read anything I write. Now that’s something you can quote me on.
I commend our school for having many sports team, but one day, I asked about (the one team my school is missing) football. The teacher told me it was an expensive sport. Even if funds were a problem, football can’t be that much more expensive than any other athletic team. Also, I can’t help but think of every single movie and book which features a high school football team. Then again, real life is never like the movies.
Only because I think cheer and gymnastics is so much fun to watch. And dance because it’s dance. I’m a dancer. I love dancing. How can you not love dancing? Even if my school didn’t compete competitively, I think it would still be fun to have a cheer, gymnastics or dance team. What’s the problem with that?
