Out in the World

Eclipse

School is already here! It’s been a whirlwind these first couple weeks, and it’s taken a hot second to get back into the swing of things. To be honest, I wasn’t too thrilled to be returning, but once I had my first day of calc, I changed my tune immediately. Since then my excitement has grown, spilling over into choir and club rush, which will hopefully make for some fun posts in the future. But for now, I’ll do a mini throwback to the day right before school started – the eclipse.

Or rather, let’s start it a bit earlier. My mom started telling me about the eclipse a week before it happened. She suggested that I write about it here, and she’d take some pictures of me to post. Unfortunately, she had to go out of town for the eclipse and my dad was at work, so when the time came, I felt like a bit of a dork sitting on my driveway taking selfies as I peered into a cereal box – but I’m getting a little ahead of myself.

Here’s some of the process of making the box (the night before, in true procrastinator fashion). Thankfully my dad could take pictures of me for this part:

The supplies
Taping down the tin foil so the aliens can’t see what’s in the box
Gotta save the box tops!
 

Then the next morning, my dorkdom was on full display to anyone in my neighborhood:

Totally normal drive way set-up

Eye see you, mr. Moon

Hundreds of eclipses!

I’m glad I had a couple cool viewing methods so I didn’t have to stare at the sun! And once school started, I went back to visit my bio teacher and I took a peek through her eclipse glasses (I was expecting sunglasses, but you can’t see anything through those things).

To conclude, here’s a joke that was shared at the first Peer Counseling meeting of the year:

How does the sun get a haircut?

He clips it!
