A Team

I'm utterly astounded. Two weeks ago, my basketball started for the seventh grade school team. It runs every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3 to 5 and is a lot more strenuous than my practices last year, but it's been soooo awesome. And what's better, I made the A team!!! Everybody on the school team (21 of us in all) are divided into two groups. The A team: More experienced, B team: Less experienced. I can't believe it. Everyone there is really good and I missed two vital practices so I thought I had no chance whatsoever. But I'm really glad I was proven wrong. :D It's not permanent though. My position for the year depends on how I do in the games, not just the practices... *takes a deep breath* Hopefully I'll do well. :D
Ugh, I knew I'd regret not doing NaNoWriMo!!! argh... Everyones having a blast (or tearing their hair out) conjuring up awesome stories while I'm sitting around doing nothing... *slaps forehead* Oh well... I hope all your novels are coming along smoothly!

Awesome!! *applauds you* That's really cool. ^^
Aw, don't worry, you'll do great. *grins*
Oh my word, NaNo is SO much fun!!! It's amazing. I love having an excuse to write so much. I can just say, "Oh, hey Mom, I have two thousand words to write today, I need to take a break from school and do that." And she's like "Alright!" *laughs* It's SO awesome. :)
Yeah, next year. Fifty thousand words. I'm already anticipating it. :D
