I saw this video the other day and I thought it would be funny to show you guys. I found it pretty relatable as I know this has all happened to us once or twice. This basically sums up that its probably not the best idea to start your essay on the night its do. Give yourself time to do it, and I assure you that your grade will improve.

Today I just wanted to ramble about the Bruins. This year, different than last year, or 2011, the Bruins have played crazy good during the season. Almost going undefeated with an astounding 15-1-1 record. For hockey, this is amazing. What makes the bruins great is the chemistry, not the skill. Sure, the Bruins have some pretty skilled players, but not of the standards of teams such as Pittsburgh, or Chicago. They work together so well, no matter the line, the bruins seem to find a way to win. No matter the lines, no matter the players winning does not seem to be the problem for this team. Hey if your reading this, comment patriots down below. They always find away to put something together. Even without some star players, or Tuuka in net the bruins can do it. The depth defensively for the Bruins, is unbelievable. The Bruins have a solid 9-10 defensemen that they can play on any given night. I really see a chance for another Stanley Cup for this Bruins team. This time, they are not coming in as underdogs, they are coming in with experience and chemistry. Hopefully this year, the Bruins can make it easy on themselves, and cruise through the first couple of rounds with ease. Lets hope for the best in these 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Go Bruins!
It is the final term at Fenn, for some it is there last, and for others this is the end of there 8th grade year. Some people will go off too other schools next year while others stay back and lead fenn's 9th grade next year. Either way, this is the last term of the year, and everyone is doing something different. For me, I hate finishing with a weak ending. I always like finishing strong, and that is school wise, and sports wise. Although, I have decided to take a step back and play JV with LT in the spring. I don't want things to be to hard, yet I want this to challenge me. Therefore, I think that this is perfect for me. School wise, I just want to focus on getting stuff done and not having to worry about it later. Like normally, I will just slack off during a friday studyhall. But I am writing this journal post, so I won't have to do it this weekend. I really just want the rest of the year to be a easy going, fun time for me. And hopefully it can head in that direction - Pava
I don't know about you guys but I always have trouble getting my homework done. I always tell myself, "I'm going it now!", then 5 minutes later I'm on ins. It's really stressful, especially if you side track to something that you have a lot of fun with. Then time goes by a lot faster when your side tracking, which is kind of annoying but I guess it makes sense. When your doing your homework it feels like your sitting there for hours, but in reality you spend a good 1-2 hours on it. Pretty much, the faster you get it done, the more time you have to do whatever you want. Although, this doesn't always work out perfectly. Often times you come home and your tired and you just want to relax, then you end up relaxing for 3 hours then its 11:00 at night. Another thing I do is listen to music. Find something that really gets you in the zone and helps you focus. For me, I like listening to Trap dubstep/Melodic Dubstep. That is the choice for many gamers, and I'm sure that some of you guys would like it too. But dubstep doesn't fit everyone, its all about what gets you focused and helps you get your work done. Once again, the faster you get it done, the more time you have to do whatever you want. Below is one of my favorite Melodic Dubsteps mixes that I'm listening too right now as I write this. - Pava
With summer approaching, I just thought I would share my plans for what I am doing. As of what I am aware of right now, I am not going anywhere "special" so that probably means i'll be going to some camps this summer. I have fun at camp and stuff but I still want to leave a month open in the summer to just do whatever I feel like. Whether that means staying up late and watching a movie, or going out to dinner, summer is a time for relaxing. Although, there is this special thing that I really want to do this summer. This may sound a bit strange, but I want to try living like a bat for one week. This means that I stay up all night, then sleep all day. I really think this would be an interesting experiment for me and it is something I've always wanted to try out. Imagine getting up at 6:00 at night and eating breakfast, then eating dinner at 7:00 in the morning. I am so excited for this summer, and thinking about summer will really help push me through then next 2 months of school. Leave some feedback on your summer plans in the comments section below.
After a two long weeks of break, we finally came back to school. My sister kept reminding me a few days before "two more days", "one more day!". It was really starting to make me cry. For the week and a half I was on break for, I had so fun. Although I really didn't do anything special, it was fun for me to relax and chill for a bit. But when the last 3 days came, it was pure hell for me. Just thinking that I would have to go back to school really hurt. I don't really mind going too school and stuff, its just waking up that would be the problem. Not going to lie, I was living like a bat during spring break. I would go to bed around 6-7 in the morning, then wake up around 3-4 in the afternoon, then repeat. It was out of control. So the last couple of days I focused a lot on getting everything back in place. But when Monday morning came, I woke up and I felt terrible. I didn't really want to go to school, but I told myself "the faster I go the faster I get it over with". Spring break was really relaxing for me and I now think I can push myself through the next few months of waking up early.
I have never really been away from my parents for more than 3 days. I know a week doesn't sound bad, but if you have never been away from the people that love you. Then you won't know how it feels. Going to Jay Peak hockey camp this summer was a real test for me. Even though I was afraid to go, I knew I had to. This was a time for me to test myself, and see how hard I can go. And Im glad I did. Jay Peak was the most fun I have ever had at a hockey camp. Sometimes, when you are in doubt in doing something your afraid of, you just have to go out there and do it. You must not let Fear get the best of you, you must get the best out of fear.
I want you to read The Odyssey, but only when you are ready.
The Odyssey is a difficult book, worth understanding. If you don't understand some of the words used in the book, then you are not ready. Every year, I want you to sit down for an hour, and read. If you feel as if you are ready, I want you to continue reading until you reach the very end. I myself, made the mistake of reading this to early, don't make that same mistake. Do what feels right to you. At times, The Odyssey make get boring, but at times, The Odyssey can get super intense. It's those times you should anticipate. I don't want you to be an early bloomer. In order to really understand The Odyssey, you must be able to understand it. When you are ready to take the step from childhood to manhood, you will know. You will know.

Its hard losing 2 games in a row, both important match ups. But the US National Hockey teams, both men's and women's have to deal with the disappointment of it. The US Women's team was up 2-0, and then it fell apart. The Canadians scored 3 consecutive as the US fell to a 3-2 loss in OT. After that, the US went up to the podium in tears, with nothing to do. The US Men's team was a different story however, the Canadians scored there only goal late into the second period putting the US in a scary place. That game finished 1-0 as the men's team also fell to a loss. Although both the men's and women's lost. There is no time for sadness. There is always another chance for redemption. Hopefully that redemption can be in another 4 years in PyeongChang, South Korea.
I really like the poem "How to be a Poet". I'm going to be honest, until now, I have never heard it. It's based upon finding a method to write that works best for you. After reading this, I can really relate to the poem, I have that special spot where I got to write and I also make sure I always listen to music. This poem really reminds me to not focus on being a poet, but more on life in general, focusing on the stuff that matters and will help you get further in life. I've noticed how a lot of kids have been talking about how after hearing it time, and time, again, it gets boring for them. I don' think that will be the case for me. Here it is
