Posts From Old Blog #7: Joy Is A Choice
So, in a week it will be the end of summer and the beginning of school. I will be going to a new school, so I am somewhat frightened, but we will see what happens. Also, I have to repeat 9th grade not because I failed academically, in fact, I did pretty well, but because they do not have a 10th grade and due to many, many reasons my parents believe this is THE BEST option.
(This has changed a bit, now I’m doing 4 semesters of schooling in the same year, both 9th and 10th grade.)
I guess, I have to keep my head up and move forward cause there isn’t any other way.
I can do it with a smile on my face, or, I can do it with a whole bagful of complaints, including the famous line ‘I hate life.’
