Snow Day

Last Friday, we had a snow day in Austin. That’s right, a snow day in Austin Texas. Well the snow was really just I’ve but it was close enough to snow for us. I woke up thinking that it was just gonna be another day, despite the weather forecasters saying that there was gonna be snow.
The “snow” covered my driveway and the net of my basketball hoop was frozen. I had forgotten to take the ball inside the night before and now my ball was covered in ice. Before I went outside or even knew that we had no school that day, I woke up frantically thinking that I would be late for the bus and late for school. As I dressed quickly, I stopped to look outside only to see the ground covered in “snow” and thought, “What is that doing in Austin?” As the day went on I watched as the snow slowly melted only to remember that we would have to make this day up.

The Texas History Trick

Last Friday, my Texas history teachers played a cruel joke on us. We came into class as usual but then the teacher said that the principal was coming in to talk to us about something. When the principal came in, he said that because of our behavior there were going to be 5 rule changes in the eanes district. The rule changes were sudden and unfair. I really thought that the changes were happening. Some kids even cried. They really had me. Then our teachers tied it back to the Texas revolution and we all had a good laugh.

Cross-Fit Friday

Everybody’s tired when they wake up. It’s just part of the human body. You wake up and your eyes feel like they just want to close automatically and your body feels like it’s 1000 pounds. All you want is just to go back to sleep. The fact that you’ve just been through the whole week does not help when you’re tired. Yep, the day is Friday, and you know the old saying, go out with a bang. On Fridays, which is the end of the week, we have Cross-Fit Friday.

A Cross-Fit for us is 25 pushups, 25 crunches, 25 mountain climbers, and 25 squats with 2 laps in between each. Some people are really good at long distance and Cross-Fits are really easy for them. We’re really lucky that we don’t have to be out at 4 pm, when the sun beats down on you like a hammer on weak nails. You get tired, tired to the point where your lungs hurt when you breathe. You can stop by the water tank, but you have to remember that Coach Spodick times you and if you stop, you’re getting time taken off. The “breaks” where you do pushups and other things are better compared to the running for me at least. I still like athletics a lot though, even when I’m tired and beat down from running because running makes you faster and more durable. Running, no matter how hard it gets, will always be better than sitting in a classroom. You can’t complain because it could always be worse.
