Good morning to all of my readers. It's 6:50am. Today is a real big day. Not just for me, but for my entire country. Today is Inauguration Day 2009. That means our new president, Barack Obama, will be put into office. I surely hope with him there is change in this country. Anyway, another reason why this is a real big day is because I've got testing today (my very first test to this extent of my high school career). I've got testing today, tomorrow and Thursday. My peers and I in my classroom get to leave school at 1:30pm (everyone else leaves at 11:45am, but the stubborn bus company will not send the buses earlier than 1pm) so I'll be home by 2:30pm. My schedule today is as follows: 1st period (with my peers) from 8-9am, Division (with my peers again) from 9:04-9:34am, 4th period (AGAIN ... with my peers) from 9:38-10:38am, 7th period (my Algebra class/test) from 10:42-11:42am, Lunch from 11:46am-12:30pm, Gym (with the peers) from 12:34-1:20pm and dismissal at 1:30pm. Here is crimne for today.
