Since yesterday was DREADFUL, today seemed quite okay. But I'm still trying to keep up with schoolwork. I'm totally behind in trig (not like I was really ever on top of any material that we covered), lost in chem, behind in english, totally dying in US history, confused and useless in oracle, and just passing in spanish. Now how did I still manage and pull off a 4.0 this grading period? I have no clue, but I'm SURE it's not gonna keep up. I feel like I want volleyball to end so that I can focus more on my studies (because not only does it take up time, but it also distracts me during class when I start daydreaming or stressing about a game or my performance. >< NOT GOOD. But then again, this thought of hoping that volleyball ends soon comes up... once in a decade, so I don't really mean it like if I said it last year. I remember when I had competitive PE with Leslie, Patty, Sam R., Janelle + Jessica, we always were counting down the games and days until volleyball would be officially over. I think almost everyone was uncomfortable on our team.... we sure as hell didn't work like a team.
I'm so emo about our Hillsdale game though... we won the FIRST TWO games and were so pumped!! Even though the coach said that they were "giving it to us" or "going easy on us", we hecka made them work. But the thing was, we had to hecka work too. ^^;; And we worked really hard too, considering our usual performance. (since our losing streak) But then when 3rd game came and we were like LET'S CRUSH THEM AND GO HOME (because by then it was already way past 6:00 PM). But not only that, their gym had NO VENTILATION and it was HEEECKA hot that day anyway! So we were like not used to the weather and tired, so they kinda.. caught up to us. >< So then we got discouraged or whatever and lost the 4th game too!! T^T Then fifth game came along... and we were all like... semi-depressed. But we really tried to give it our all and it was... okay. ^^;; 15 points.. what can we do... But overall the game was actually quite nice because for one, I didn't do too bad, I have to say, and also because it was like we were a whole team again. Everyone got a chance to play except for Holly because of her illness, but even the people who got twisted ankles and sore backs (in total... 4 people) got to play today because they got better. I mean, imagine having a team, and then a few weeks into the season, hecka people get hurt, phones, wallets and stuff stolen, people don't have grades, then the team's left with like 8 people. >> So this game, for once, I actually got to sub out (not libero), so that was very nice.
