The week ended on a sour note as I had to miss out on the "Holiday in the Sun" dance. This was rather disappointing as I had been looking forward to it for several months. It definitely reminded me of what happened last year.
Mom was worried about the recent flu outbreak and advised me to stay home over concerns that germs spread easily in crowded places. She definitely had a point - a dance isn't worth getting sick over. This wasn't a total surprise because I was prepared for the possibility of missing the dance - after all, my mother has always taught to expect the unexpected. But to tell you the truth, it still kind of sucks.
The back-to-school dance in August might be my last high school dance ever. Though there are three more coming up - winter formal, Sadies and prom - the tickets are much more expensive. Mom assures me there are dances in college, but that remains to be seen.
The good news is that I don't have too much homework this weekend. The other thing is that my aunts Wei-Jen and Wei-Feng are coming over from Taiwan and will be staying for a few weeks. Dad plans to take all of us to the Southwest U.S. during Christmas vacation. So at least there's something to look forward to. :-)
In other news...
Our winter choral concert is on Saturday night at the Los Altos United Methodist Church. This will be my first public performance. I'm a little nervous but also excited at the same time. Wish me luck for tomorrow!
