I'm skipping cross country practice right now because I feel like shit, so I can't run, but I felt good enough to make this entry. I am officially free from school until January 4th, which is when the scrooges of the world are making me go back.
We had an academic team Christmas party, which was a lot of fun. We played dirty santa, and people kept stealing my presents, which sucked because I got two really good presents the first two times I picked new ones. Then it was up to me to either steal someone else's or end the game by opening the last present. I chose to end the game. I wish I hadn't, because it was velveeta.
Also, I tried and somewhat succeeded at being nice to the asshole team captain. And just so all of you know, I really don't think he's gay. He doesn't twip at all. But back to the pont, I was pretty nice to him, and he was pretty nice to me, so this might work out in the end. We'll never be best buds, but at least we can be civil. I'm going to try not to get too angry when he messes up a science question. I mean, he's not perfect, so I'll be less critical.
We had a Latin Club Christmas party, which was a lot of fun. My sister and I were on a team for Cranium the board game, and we got second place because I got a question wrong that I definitely should have gotten right. It was like, "If you added up every whole number from 1 to 100, what would the sum be?" I was off by fifty, because I said 5100 when it was really 5050. I would have had time to check my math except that we only had like a minute, and I had a hard time remembering the formula thingie, about the sum of the terms in a sequence is equal to the number of terms times 1/2 the sum of the first and the last term. And my sister is no help on math questions, so I was on my own. But it was still a lot of fun.
