So, I love to laugh, and joke around,and be funny. And now I'm going to talk about people who make me laugh. Last night I watched the movie Date Night with Steve Carell and Tina Fey. And it was reaaallllyyyyy funny. Both of those people are just down right HILARIOUS. It really doesn't get any funnier than them. Unless you watch Parks and Recreation. Then I don't think it can get any funnier. Amy Pohler is probably my favorite comedian ever. And possibly the funniest person alive. Her character, Leslie Knope, make me laugh FOR DAYS. Plus, the rest of the cast is hilarious. My favorite character is Andy. I forget the actors name but he is te big dumb red headed guy who is Marries to April. He does a lot of improv in the show that is just brilliant. And then of course, there is Rebel Wilson. I mean come on, she is so funny. Fat Amy changed my life. Forever. I'm not kidding. Oh and how can I forget one of the people that makes me laugh every day?! Jackie Olson everybody. She is one funny gal.
So, I like LOVE Disney Channel movies. A lot. And I think other people have written about this, but I need to also. So, at the moment I am watching Camp Rock, and I just really love it. And I also just realized that it is basically the musical version of Mean Girls.... But worse acting. Joe Jonas is doing a dance scene right now and trying to look cool, but he is a terrible dancer so he looks like a spastic frog. He also needs a haircut. But, I still love this movie because, who doesn't? High School Musical, the Hannah Montana Movie, those are my life. But when you watch them when you aren't seven years old, you realize how bad they are, how dumb the clothes and dance moves are, how bad everyone is at lip-syncing, and how auto tuned everyone is. I used to think that the Tess girl from Camp Rock was a really good singer. I also love Disney Movies because they just remind me of being a little kid and it is cool to see these big stars when they were younger and not drug addicts or in jail or something. So, that's all I have to say, and I kinda want to be in a Disney movie... K bye.
So, I feel as though I should just let everyone know how I feel about winter.
It needs to go away now. I'm so over te cold and the snow and the slushy icky icy ground. Like stop mother nature you are snowing all over my parade. Not to mention that I am now FREEZING 100% of the time. All day, erry day. As of this moment I have super fuzzy footie pajamas on. That is how cold I am. I just can't get warm!! Plus, my room is like Antarctica. Like every time I walk in it's like "Oh hello winter, thanks for crashing my party" and I just want to curl up in a ball and cry. I miss summer!!!!!!!! I miss shorts and flip-flops and walking outside with no coat an not having to worry about dying of hypothermia or front bite. I want no school and sleeping in every day. But unfortunately, it isn't even February yet. Yaaaay. So I just have to tough it out through the cold, dark, slushy, super early mornings filled with days of school and work. But, if I could snap my fingers and change anything, it would be the weather.
So today, Science class was quite productive thanks to my good friends Emily and Jackie. There is a movie called Pitch Perfect, and in the movie a girl auditions for and acapella group and she creates a sort of beat with a plastic cup. I have wanted to learn how to do it for a long time, and I know the song, so today I finally realized I needed to step it up and learn the cup part. During science as we were waiting for our liquid to evaporate, we grabbed a blue plast cup and Emily and Jackie started to teach me how to do this cup thing! I was really bad at it at first, but then I got then hang of it and I just couldn't stop! I'm sure Mr. Miller loved it. By the time lunch came I was a pro, and started to teach some of my other friends. And now I am grounded, and doing the cup thing because it is really fun.
Hi everyone. So if you recall, my first blog post was about volleyball and how I've been working very hard to make the Lincoln team this year. Well, now is that point in my life where I see if it all pays off. On Friday we had our first volleyball tryout. I had been practicing extra hard the whole week leading up to it, and I had been nervous all week also. The day of, I could BARELY control my nerves. I was shaking during 10th period, and all I could talk about all day was tryouts. It was really bad... But then tryouts came. We started warmin up and I got a little less nervous. I was pretty on top of my bumping and setting. But then we got to serving, and I wa a little off my game. I only got 2 out of five over, because during my first serve, I re-pulled a muscle in my back that I had pulled the day before and it really hurt. But I powered through... Haha that sounds weird. Anyway, I think I redeemed myself during the spiking drill. I did okay, better than serving. At the end of tryouts, NO ONE got cut. Not a single one of the 30 girls that were there. That made everyone really confused because now we don't know where we are at on the list I guess you could say. So, I will keep everyone posted and I'm sure Jackie and Lucy will too, because tomorrow after school we find out who makes the team!!!
So, as you all probably know, I have many problems. Like a lot. But one of my MAJOR problems is time management. Again, as you all know, we had a project dude today. A very stressful one at that. This took lots of time and staying focused. I don't have/ can't do that. So, I tried t start my project ahead of time by doing the art, but I got bored. So, I figured that I would just do it all over the weekend. I wasn't really anticipating that "over the weekend" meant all on Sunday. This project took me eleven hours. ELEVEN. That is too many. See if I was a smart person, I would have done it in sections over the, what, three weeks we had the assignment?! Yeah. But no! I have to o it ALL on Sunday. Lucky, I finished and not to toot my own horn but umm... TOOT TOOT. I think it's pretty good. Well, it should be pretty good since it took me ELEVEN HOURS. I'm sorry. You probably get that by now... I'm just frustrated because I didn't use my time better. I probably wasn't the most focused person in the world, which took up a lot of my time, but let's face it. I'm NEVER the mosst focused person. Not even in the room. I guess I just wanted to let everyone know how I feel about this in case anyone has the same problem and would like to share to make me feel better, or if anyone has any advice for me, that would be gratefully accepted. Thank you for listening to my problems.
Yeah. That's right. I'm going to be famous. No. I'm not. I'm totally kidding. Well, I could be. Let me just tell you why. So, on this fine morning, at 9:00, I got up and put on a very adorable outfit that I will wear on Monday, and I drove into the city with my Mom. We went to big building in Chicago. In it is a very good acting school type place that teaches acting, stage makeup, stage fighting, being on camera, modeling stuff, and show biz things like that. There is a casting agent place next door and some agents actually teach classes there. Today I sat in on a class. It was an improv and acting class that I will be taking in February. It was really fun to sit in on this one. The teacher was really great and the exercises and the class all together was really great. Another thing is, since there is agents there, that means maybe, JUST MAYBE, on will like me and want to work with me or this whole experience could give me the opportunity to be in a movie or on tv or something like that. I am really excited to take this class I will learn so much and it will be so much fun!!!! And when I'm famous, I'll remember all you people.
So, this lovely weekend, I was grounded. Yea, most of you are probably thinking, "Oooooh that sucks." No. It really didn't. This weekend was actually pretty fun for me. I got to oovoo my friends and just hang out in my basement basically ALL weekend. I watched a lot of my favorite TV show, Friends, ate a lot of good food, and just hung out. It was really relaxing and a nice break from seeing people and having to socialize. Also, my mom has this habit of grounding me, and then taking me shopping and buying me a lot of things. Which is exactly what happened this weekend. My mom had to go shopping on Saturday and I went with, I got 3 new shirts out of it and some chocolate. Again, today we went shopping. Got another 2 shirts. And, I got to go hang out at my neighbors house, which was fun. I think my mom might have forgotten about the fact that I was grounded. She usually looses up about it when it happens. She says something like, "Today is such a beautiful day, go outside!" Or, "I mean, that's adorable, you HAVE to have that, don't you? I mean come on." So, I guess my mom is pretty cool, and I guess I should get grounded more often.
Well, this Thanksgiving break wasn't really anything super special. It mostly felt like a super long weekend to me. Usually my family comes in for Thanksgiving, or we go somewhere special, but this year, we didn't do anything special. Right up until the Wednesday before Thanksgiving I didn't do anything special. I just hung out with my friends and hung around Park Ridge like I usually do, which isn't that bad, because I like to just hang out. Then on Wednesday my mom took me to see Les Miserables, the play. Wow! It was really great. It was very long and confusing but the singing and acting and set was amazing! After the play we got some Starbucks. Yum. Thanksgiving day was pretty normal. I got to play with my neighbor's new kitten and I made mashed potatoes. They were awesome. Just saying. Then my parents made my whole family go see Life of Pi. I wouldn't recommend it. Then, on Friday morning I woke up at 5:30 to go black Friday shopping. And of course, it's dark and scary outside, and I had just watched Paranormal Activity 3 with my friends, so the power had to go out and I had to trip and fall down in my closet. And then I heard a cat meow. We don't have a cat. It was scary. Plus, I was supposed to walk to my friend's house alone that morning. Luckily, another friend was able to pick me up. We went Black Friday shopping an it was really fun! It wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be. No one got trampled. I then spent the weekend at my dad's house with a good friend. It was fun. But, I really don't want this break to end.
I hate tests. No, I don't mind taking them at all. I actually like taking tests if I know the material. Knowing that they exist and that I will have to take them in the future makes me so angry and nervous all the time. I know that I have to study, but I never know what the right amount of studying is. I will study for a little bit, and then I get a bad grade. But then I will study for multiple days, and I won't need half of the information I studied. Which makes me very angry. I stress so much before tests. And, when I know I have a test in the future, I feel as though my homework isn't done, so I can't take the time to do fun things, and then if I take the time to do something fun, I will feel guilty the entire time because that is time that I could be using to study. Right now I have to big test on Thursday. Oh, thank you so much kind teachers for putting the two big last of the trimester tests on the same day. I appreciate it so much that you want me to have no free time and that you want me to be extremely stressed right up to the moment when I am done with the test. Also, yes, some stress is relieved when the test is over, but it is never fully gone until you get the test back. Which for some teachers is about 2 weeks later. They are obviously trying to kill me. They want me to die of stress and anxiety. Thanks. Please grade your tests 13 days faster. For mine and my fellow students health and lives.
