Miss Me?

I could be spending quite a lot of time telling you why I wasn’t here and making excuses for myself, but I’m not going to. Instead, I am going to give you an insight into all the wonderful awesome things that have happened since I last blogged.

I met my very best friend and went to the End of the Year Gathering for the very first time. It was amazing!!! I made some really great friends. The dance was SO much fun, and I had curly hair for it! (I positively ADORE my hair when its curled.)
The Talent Show was very dragged out. It made me nervous. I think I played better than I think I did. Maybe not. I’ll just be blunt and say I was completely terrified and have no intention of doing that ever again. ;)
For more on my friends there click here.

After the EOTYG, I got to see another one of my really really good friends who recently moved back to America from England. We had a ton of fun. We went shopping, had a photo shoot, filmed a horror movie, watched some Thrillers (I am Legend; When a Stranger Calls) and just had an all around fun time!

Over to the side there are just a few pictures we took while sitting in the car in a Walmart parking lot. We sang "The Wheels on the Bus" "Bohemian Rhapsody" and the "Do Re Mi" song at the top of our lungs and freaked some innocent bystanders out by shaking the car with our bouncing. It was fun. ^^

We went to Thor (and, for the record, that movie is ABSOLUTELY AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!!) and then spazzed. We took our favorite parts of the movie and made our own movie with us acting the parts. I played as Thor, and Thor had an emotional break-down. Make sense? Probably not. You really had to be there to understand it.
Lets just say that Raina and I came to the conclusion that Loki was a spazzy mermaid.
I cried when Thor (SPOILER) broke the Rainbow Bridge. I liked the rainbow bridge. :(
Anyways, it was a ton of fun!

Needless to say, when I got home, life was boring. I was lonely all the time and just very depressed. ….Then I started classes July 8th.

It has been rough peoples. ROUGH I tell you!!!!

I am taking two omnibus classes this summer, Omni II Sec and Omni III Sec. Its a ton of work, and very tiring. I’ve really been struggling with the lack of motivation. It just seems to be too much work. And if you think about it, it probably is. After all, I am cramming nearly two years worth of work into 6 weeks. Who wouldn’t feel overworked?!

Then last week, I went to see Captain America. I won’t give anything away, but I will just tell you that I have a new favorite movie. And the stuff at the very end of it? (see below for enthusiasm)

...I will be at the very first showing with my Icee in one hand and popcorn in the other, hopefully with a friend or two on either side that I can hold onto if I 1) suffer from an overload of hot male super-heros 2) too much movie drama or 3) WAY too much sugar.
In my case, it will probably be all of the above. And I will be erupting with excited EEPS and ODSUFHOIEUHDFOIUHADS-ness in the middle. You can count on that.

However, before The Avengers comes Harry Potter.

I have a confession.


Yup. Send me to Harryholics anonymous. I’d fit right in.

Let me explain. I got started on the series a bit late. My mom had never really wanted me to read them, but I finally convinced her to let me check out the first book from the library in January. She informed me we’d never own the books and would never see the movies. Anyways, I finished the book and gave it to her to check back in. Apparently, she read it herself, and a few days later, arrived home from Barnes and Noble with Harry Potter 1-7 and took possession of 4-7 because “I wouldn’t get any school reading done.”
So...Harry Potter has now become a pretty big deal for me. I saw movie 5 before any of the others because it was on TV, but imagine my utter joy when a friend told me she had Movies 1-7 ½. I arrived home with seven movies that night, thankyouverymuch, and watched 1-4 on the weekend. I don’t think I will be able to watch 5-7 ½ until my birthday (August 22nd) but I am eagerly awaiting it.

I could give you a complete run down of my favorite characters and why I like them, but I will just give you a list. Sirius, Dumbledore, Lupin, Draco, Fred and George, Tonks, and Snape. For the record, Snape was my favorite character even before I knew the truth.

You may notice that my list doesn’t include the three main protagonists (or whatever they’re called.) You’re correct. I think they’re overrated and I think JK Rowling needs to start working on a prequel series NOW so I can read more about my beloved Sirius, Lupin and Snape. <3

(And did I tell you? I’m asking for a Lucius Malfoy wand for my birthday. Or Voldemort. Their wands are AMAZING!)

Anyway, I must go and write a paper for Omnibus (ooh…...these papers are going to kill me. [insert dramatic music here])

So I will Ciao for now, and be back sometime, hopefully in the near future.


Signed: Me.

Inside the Hatbox: Sending Some Flowers

Here we are people. My first post back in a very long time. I encourage you to read it, send her a card, and maybe repost this too somewhere.

Do I Know You?

You are probably thinking I dropped off the face of the earth. And you would be mostly/kinda right. So I will give you my quick little facts of where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing the past two or so weeks.

May 6th - Went to Six Flags for Homeschool day. I rode pretty much every exciting roller coaster there except Mr. Freeze because the line was so long. Texas Giant? Check. Mine train? Check. Runaway Mountain? Check. The Titan? Check. Did I almost die? ABSOLUTELY. It was awesome. It goes up like 24 stories. And drops straight down from there and you are going 85 mph. I tol you I almost died…. ^^

May 7th - I was sick. Very sick. Sick with a fever sick. I did no homework at.all. And I missed a piano lesson with one of my favorite teachers. *Sigh*

May 8th - Still sick

May 9th - Still sick and I lost my retainers. ...Where did I lose them? Maggie’s mouth. -.- I was not impressed.

May 10th - 14th - Still.Sick.

May 16th - Vocal Tryouts. I was a nervous wreck. But did I do well? Mhmm! At least according to the judge :D

May 18th - My parent’s 20th Wedding anniversary. :D That means they are ooooold. Heeheee… I had to put that in there in case one of them reads it.

That brings to to today. EEEP. Haircut tomorrow, Piano contest on Saturday, Piano recital on Monday and then finals on Monday-Wednesday. I am so not ready O.O

BUUUUUUTTTTTT….come the following Saturday, we leave for the!!!!!!!! 

That happens this coming Saturday. Saturday the 28th which may quite possibly be the best day of my entire life, with maybe the exception of the day we brought Maggie home. Why? I’ll be seeting two of my very bestest friends that I have known FOREVER and yes, I am excited.

So, needless to say, I will not be here much. I will post pictures and pictures and pictures though. And I will be documenting the entirety of our trip. Stay tuned…

I did not die.

Hi there.

Long time, no talk. In fact, I believe the last time I said something on here was when I got my braces of...and that was like two weeks ago. So hello strangers!

Currently, I am on break, which is just a fancy way of saying, “I have no school to do at all and I am bored out of my mind because of it.” Technically, that isn’t true though. I have an itty bitty bit of school to do, but that’s it. I usually am a free person after lunch, and I goof off for the rest of the day, gibbering on the computer. Am I a computer addict? Pshaw! No! ...a teeny weeny bit maybe….okay. More than a teeny bit. But I cannot help myself. This is my window to my friends, and if you think for one second that I am going to shun my friends on break (and even not on break!) think again. Was this addressed to you, Mom? Not really.

So yes. I have been wasting HUGE amounts of time on the computer and making excuses as to why my bed isn’t made (it isn’t made because its break. No one should have to make their bed on break, now, should they? I don’t think so!). 
Email, Warcraft, and reading. My three joys. Maybe we could insert sleeping and improvising on the piano in there too. But that is all I have been doing. I finished rereading some favorite books (Lost Hero, Red Pyramid, To Kill a Mockingbird) yesterday, and I am searching for another one to start. I’m thinking I will probably do an Omnibus Secondary book to save me from death by brain overload this summer. I’m reading Animal Farm right now. That book is funny and interesting. I love it.

So what am I doing right now this second?

Just to show you how addicted to the computer I am, I am sitting in a kitchen chair staring at a pot of potatoes that is supposed to be boiling. Its not. I guess that the “A watched pot never boils” saying is true. I always was a sceptic.

After these silly potatoes boil, I will make them into deliciously yummy, buttery, bad-for-you mashed potatoes, which just happen to be what God eats. I promise. How could he not? (I really hope that wasn’t like a sin or something to say that. If it was, I take it back. And I’m not kidding around here either. :P)

Sunday will be Easter and I will get more candy that will probably last me only two days, just like the Valentines candy did. Oh well. Its good while it lasts. Then Easter evening will be the most depressing Sunday night of all time because it means school is the next day. But until 10:30 PM then, I am not going to worry about it. No good to be a jolly raincloud on the rest of my lovely week ^_^

Have a wonderful Easter!

Reasons for Joy!

I have decided that since I am forever venting on here, I should at least try to balance it out. Then I will not seem pessimistic and just plain blah. Being blah is never fun, and oftentimes its boring [just so you know, its a lot of fun to say that out loud really fast].

After about 20 months of dealing with being a metal mouth, whoo whoo railroad tracks mouth, wearing those ridiculously colored neon rubber bands, and painful tightening, I now have naked teeth!! They are so beautiful. They are like supermodel to the point of looking unnatural. I think I spent half the day looking in the mirror yesterday after getting them off. My teeth looked really weird!! The first thing I ate was a carmel apple...followed by jelly beans :D So now I have pretty teeth!!

Before                  After

Yesterday, I went to this really cool restaurant with my friend called the Magic Time Machine. The waiters were really funny. There was a gypsy, Jack Sparrow, a lumberjack, and Aladdin. We got Aladdin. He was really weird!! He like stuffed a to-go box in my face and started barking….hehe yeah… but anyway, its all themed and stuff and really really cool!! I wanted to sit in the Halloween pumpkin, but Aladdin went all non-Aladdin and said no. My friend and I sat in the pumpkin anyway and took pictures. TAKE THAT ALADDIN!! Ha!

I had another reason to be excited...I forgot it. Hmmm...what was it?? I knew I had another one… YAY FOR FORGETFULNESS. “Sigh” *Pooh Bear Thinking*

Oh! I know! My room is clean. Like really nice clean...except *Guilt* I did not make my bed this morning because I was studying for Latin. I’m glad I skipped making it though, cuz Mrs. Hensley gave us a pop quiz GAHHHH O.O I was prepared though! I think I will make a 100% I wish my science grades were the same as my Latin ones…..No! No pessimism.

Oh well. I can’t remember it now.

This is my song for today.

The Eleven O'Clock Post

As the reality of the rest of the week sets in, I find myself staying up late with homework. Again. And I have been working very hard on it this week too.

I crammed on Sunday, just as much as I could. A Logic presentation was just around the corner, and although I’d love to say I breezed through it without a problem...I just, well, didn’t. And I “Um”ed, which is a big no-no. I couldn’t help it though! I didn’t have a paper written out and I was only using notes (thanks to procrastination, I presented today [Monday] and I found all my info Sunday night. So lovely.) But it was ok. Just waiting for the grade now. Its going to be an eighty-something. I know it.

Last weekend we drove down to Austin to see [my favorite, and only] great-great aunt. She’s the funniest thing ever! And, did I mention that we have the same birthday? How cool is that?! But anyways, we (my mom, sister, grandma, and I) drove down to Austin [4 hours] and back to Waco [2 hours] on Friday, and then drove back to my house [2 hours] on a Saturday morning. But first, I had a piano practice for a contest that is *gasp* this coming Saturday.

Of course, I don’t need to worry that it is only five days away and I don’t have half of it memorized yet. There’s only seven pages and I only need to memorize five of them in five days. Its not that hard. *cough* Its only a page a day. Hehe…...
I didn’t practice at all today. [And I wonder why I’m not prepared]
I love Beethoven, so it would only make sense that he hates me.

Oh! Guess what!! I lost my Dante book and my class is tomorrow and I haven’t done my assignment! Yay!! I will once again be singing “Oh where of where has my dante book gone” to the tune of the song about the dog with a tail that got cut long.

Now my mother is telling me that I must go to bed, so I suppose I will.

G’night Folks,

Monday, March 21, 2011

It being so early, I cannnot come up with any sort of title. Sorry.

Its official:

I cannot keep up with the commitment to write on here every single day.

So I have resigned to only writing every other day, or maybe just 3-4 times a week. I'll probably never ever do one of weekends though because those are my jam-all-the-homework-I-should-have-done-last-week-all-into-two-days days

In all seriousness, I could really do with a 3 day weekend. Or maybe even 4 day weekend, just so I could fit everything in. My schedule is so nuts that I can hardly fit everything in, even without homework in the picture. But if you add in large quantities of Omnibus reading, ridiculous amounts of science, and the fact that I have still not written my presentation for Logic (We are now presenting them in class. Oh dear. [insert freaking out/hysterics here]

This weekend, I was supposed to get two weeks worth of science done, re-write a paper, write my logic presentation, and catch up on reading for English. The reality? I procrastinated and did only two days worth of work done for science, even though I was capable of more.

I must learn not to procrastinate.
