Hello Basketball World, I'm Back With Week 6 Of My Diary.
Monday - Today before school, I went to the gym at 6:30. Following my workout, I took a shower and headed to Calculus. During class, we continued our preparation for the Spring trimester exam. Our test is cumulative and AP scaled, so we focused on material that we learned in the beginning of the year. After Calc, I had English. We also continued our preparation for our Spring trimester project. My presentation involves drawing connections between religious parallels in the book Moby Dick to limitations of human capabilities. Following school, I had practice from 3:30 to 5:00. We are gearing up for the first round of playoffs on Wednesday against Groton home . During practice, we specifically focused on how we were going to guard them defensively and our offensive sets. Before heading back to my dorm, I went the dining hall to eat. To finish the night, I took a shower and completed my homework.
Tuesday - On Tuesdays, I have a full schedule with all my subjects. My most favorable classes today were Biology and History. In Biology, I continued to work on my research for Cystic Fibrosis, specifically, the mutated gene associated with the disorder. In History, I began my final essay on the futility of the Compromise of 1820. Following class, I had practice from 3:30 to 5:00. During practice we focused on are different defensive sets. Before heading to my dorm, I went to the dining hall to eat. Before going to bed, I completed more research for my biology project.
Wednesday - Today I only have three classes; Biology, Chemistry and History. In Biology, I continued my research on my genetic disorder, primarily searching up articles on Cystic Fibrosis treatment. In Chemistry, we began preparing for our final exam. We worked on practice problems and old tests. In History, I continued to work on my final essay regarding the compromise of 1820. Following class, I went to the gym to get ready for our playoff game against Groton. Unfortunately, we had a hard loss with a score 58- 62 and I had 17 points. Following the game, I went to the dining hall to eat, before heading back to my dorm. To finish the night, I completed my research project for Biology.
Thursday - Similarly to Wednesdays, I have only three classes: English, Bio, and Calculus. In English, we continued working on our final projects regarding Moby Dick. In Bio, I continued my research on Cystic Fibrosis, specifically, on the phenotypes of the disorder. In Calc, we continued our preparation for the exam by looking over 2012 AP problems. Following class, I headed to the equipment room. During the spring season, I am the equipment manager’s assistant. I am responsible for providing students for with the different items they need for their afternoon activity. After helping out, I went straight to the library to study for my chemistry exam. Before heading back to my dorm, I went to the dining hall to eat. Before going to bed, I looked over my chemistry notes once more.
Friday - Today I have four classes; History, Chem, Calculus, and English. The classes I enjoyed the most were Chemistry and History. In Chem, we played kahoot, an online game to review for our spring exam. In History, I was able to finish my final essay in class. I determined that the Compromise of 1820 was futile due to the inevitability of the Civil War. Following classes, I went to the equipment room to help Mr. Moran, the equipment manager. After helping out, I went straight to the library to the work on my Biology project. After completing my research, I continued reviewing for my chemistry exam. Before heading back to my dorm, I went to the dining hall to eat dinner. To finish the night, I continued working on my presentation of English.
Saturday - Today I only have three classes; Bio, Chem, and History. In Bio, we edited and revised our projects. In Chem, we played more kahoots and review games in preparation for our test on Tuesday. In History, the class worked on their final essays. I had already finished mine so I was able to continue working on my English project. Following class, I went to work out with one of my teammates for a few hours in the gym. We focused on mid range jumpers, 3 pointers, and layups with contact, Following our workout, we took showers and spent the rest of the night studying for our exams and watching TV.
Sunday - Today I went to “Super Sunday,” where New England basketball championships and all-star games are played. One of my teammates and I made our division’s All-Star game and I had 20 points. We stuck around to watch some of the championship games being played. Once I got back to campus, I took a shower and continued preparing for my exams coming up next week.
