Getting serious about High School

It is time for me to start getting serious about heading off to high school. I am in the eighth grade, and just nine months to the end of this school year. I now must decide the next four years of my educated life in school. I have to start choosing my high school now. So me and my mom are working on a list of high schools I could possibly go to. And it is not counting the New York Specialized High Schools. I am going to take the SHSAT (Specialized High School Admissions Test) next month, so I am going to an after school program that will prepare me for the test. I will only put down Bronx High School of Science and High School for American Studies at Lehman College. As for my High School application, I will put down at least eight schools. Mostly those at Christopher Columbus and Evander Childs. Well, that is all I can say about high schools. I did end up going to some meeting at my school (whose page on the site needs to be updated since there is a new principal.


I don't have as much time to draw stuff as I did during last week. I can only really draw on weekends, and I do my homework then. So I can only really draw during vacations and holidays. Most of my drawings on my Photobucket account are really just plain Ed, Edd n' Eddy drawings, due to requests of those pictures by people at The 3 Anyway, to the right are Jeff and Meg's mom and their baby brother Todd. Also known as 'Todd the Menace' or just 'Menace'! I will get back to drawing more pictures of the characters later, once I finish getting to...stuff I just forgot. D'OH! Oh, I remembered what I wanted to say after that Simpsons reference. I am working on some Simpsons looking characters for my show. Basically just Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge, and Maggie. I need a bit of help figuring it out. Please leave pointers or something in the comments. Write anything in the comments! Anyway, I should be doing my homework right now...if there is any left. And I think that is just math. So bye!


P.S. Sorry for not doing this yesterday!

Weekey Update #1

Starting today, I will start updating my blog weekly. That way, you can all understand more of my life, and update more info. And have more important things to say. To the right is a picture that I actually drew. It is of the two main characters of a cartoon idea I have, Jeff + Meg. Since I am to lazy to re-write this, I will cut and paste from what I wrote as 'Double Nazedd' on The3eds forums:

"My show is called Jeff + Meg, after the main characters, twins Jefrey and Megumi (yes, it is a Japanese name). They live in the town of Fragile, Minnesota, where most of their adventures (and misadventures) take place. There are subtle and board continuity in each episode, such as if a house was destroyed, then it will be re-built for a few episodes. And each season takes place in one season (ex. Season 1 in Fall and Season 2 in Winter). They have a bunch of fun and mischief with their friends at Landmark Jr. High and around the town. A running gag is that some building or monument in the town always breaks in an episode, a hint to the town's name. I am still working on the character designs and will start writing up a few episodes. I actually intend to create this series when I get older and give it to Cartoon Network (if they didn't die yet)."

And here is yet another thing about the show:

"Some more info on my show. The main characters all live on the the same street. In a cul-de-sac. A sort of homage towards Ed, Edd n Eddy. Pictures of the other characters come later. I want to have a fixed set number of characters, so I hope I can just make under 30 characters that I truly need. I should have the pictures of a few more characters (at least 3) by tomorrow."

I will edit this post later when I upload the other picture.
EDIT: I got the picture up. As my English teacher would say, "Like Beyonce, To the left, to the left." Class groans.

Now it is time to post about school. I am in eighth grade now, so you know what that means! Yes! High applications, major tests, and, if you're in the gifted class, 9th grade regents! Simply amazing! It is time to think about the next few years of my life. I can't believe I have to choose 12 high schools. Also, I am thinking of taking the Specialized High School test. Bronx Science (or American Studies) or bust! I got a nice homeroom teacher that is also my English teacher. I only have classes on two floors. My homeroom has its own lockers, so I can keep my notebooks and a few textbooks in! My book bag is so light now. Okay, maybe not light, but it is a lot more manageable. My class (801), is going to start studying for our Science regents on Mondays. If there is a holiday on Monday, then we have it on Friday. I attend Pablo Casals Middle School 181, located in Co-op City, in the Bronx. I should be doing my homework now, but I will get to it later. Spanish, I can tell, is going to be very tough. Especially since I paid no attention to it last year. Oh, but those are my woes.


I think this is my longest post ever. Well, know that I have decided to post weekly, I shall have no worries. That is all I can say...besides that this is my Photobucket account, in case you want to see some pics of mine.
