Last time you sang

In my truck driving to school this morning, Merle Haggard: Big City.

Last bet you made

I made a bet with my seventh hour Government class. If they got a 90 percent class average on their Campaigns and Election Quiz 2 then I would “floss.” I lost.

Last guilty pleasure

I watch cartoons sometimes during my plan period.

Last moment of pride

I am proud of my seventh hour Government for making leaps and bounds from how they started this year.

Last nightmare

The Chiefs lost another home playoff game.

Last perfect day off

Thanksgiving day. I watched football all afternoon, ate a great Thanksgiving meal and continued the yearly tradition of watching “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.”

Last time I laughed

I laugh everyday. Laughter is what makes life enjoyable.

Last time I was moved to tears

Visiting Pearl Harbor. I have a great appreciation for America’s armed men and women, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Last piece of advice

Relax, don’t sweat the small stuff. Every event is just a moment in time that will quickly pass.
