For seven months of my life my emotions revolved around one person. If he waved at me I was happy, if he ignored me I was sad, etc. Well today was the first day of my life I actually was in control of my emotions and, let me tell you, it was WONDERFUL.
I was happy all of the time about everything!
This morning my friend went up to him and whacked him with her binder... I thought he'd be really mad at me after that. As I walked into Science as he was walking out I acted as if he wasn't there. A couple seconds later a friend informed me that he actually said hi to me!
"Really??" I asked before shooting out the door of the classroom. I chased him down.
He was talking with a friend, "...and she just ignored me!" He was telling the friend.
I snuck up behind him, "_____!!!" I waved and smiled.
He smiled back and waved with a satisfied, "Hey Tessa!"
I almost sprinted back to the classroom. I had the most ridiculous smile on my face.
As for the challenge, today we played Ultimate Frisbee against a really competitive team in P.E. Rather than trying to put them down and make them the enemy, we encouraged them and were optimistic. We ended up winning the game but the other team was still happy because we were all nice about it.
