Hello, today I’m going talk about daily things that I do or happen to me throughout the day. Now, my life isn’t a wild adventure of a freshman who becomes the “Hotshot.” No, no, no this is just a regular, though I don’t really consider myself, nerdish student’s life in his first year of High school.

As in regular teachers who aren’t...
