Blog Title: Testing/high school placement on my birthday
Blog Entry: Next week is my birthday, an I was super excited until I found out we were testing for high school placement. I understand that this is really important to get into really good classes so you can get into a good college. But, it's kind of disappointing to find out that it's on my birthday. Also, another thing I didn't like about this was that we had to test for three hours straight, and we wouldn't get to do any of our normal classes except for encore and enrichment. What I've learned from this so far is that life doesn't always go your way. You can expect it to always go out your way. Everything happens for a reason, and if testing happens to be on your birthday there's a reason, maybe it's sending you a sign that might into a good class because your birthday is a special day. High school placement it's important. Study for it, be prepared, bring a good attitude. I know I will bring a good attitude that's what I've learned from martial arts always have a good attitude no matter the situation. Then, my dad told me that it's part of growing up you can't always expect your birthday to be a free day off or any day to be a free day off anymore, growing up is growing up, and you can't control it it's part of life.
