Okay, I failed. I didn’t do what I said I would. I need to stop making unfulfilled promises. I just forgot about it on Monday and Tuesday I was just like, “well I didn’t do it monday….” Which is unexceptable! Not that I’m planning to go through it any of what I said now, but atleast I acknolledged my neglegance? (spelling FAIL)

Tomarrow is Nerd day at my school. Any ideas? I’m wearing a tie, my glasses, and a harry potter lightening bolt. Maybe do my hair crazy, but what else? Convers rip offs are a given! I don’t have any nerdfighter shirts, or overly nerdy shirts. I’m thinking about carrying around a harry potter book. Maybe I’ll put some tape on my glasses? No poof, seeing no one would get it at my school, but maybe I’ll just go frizzy. Do you guys have any suggestions? Please and thank you!

Wow, sorry! I am a horrible blogger. I had not notice how long I’ve gone without posting. I mean a week is fine to go without posting, two weeks at the most, but this long?!? I appologize. I actually do have a blog written, but I just need to type it up. If you want to keep up with me follow me on twitter or youtube seeing how much i fail at this blogging thing. I promise if anything major happens in my life you guys will know, but really, nothing big or major HAS happened. Well I guess I went to see President Obama give a speech, but that’s really it.
How about to make it up to you I’ll blog each day next week that I dress up for homecoming, and I will provide a picture. The rules for next week is, if I dress up, I post, if I post, it must be over 200 words. I believe I am dressing up for everyday but Wednesday, but I am not 100% sure if I am or not. Maybe on Wednesday I’ll post my other blog post that I need to type up. How does that sound? Can you readers agree to that? I hope you guys can forgive me for my absence.

p.s. HOW COULD I FORGET!?!? I’m going to the ren. fest today. I’m mostly excited to have some baklava, and maybe see a hookah demonstration that hayleyghoover has been knowned to blog about.

Today, as most of you know, was my first day of school. I wanted to record it in someway, some how, and decided that this blog would be a good way. Seeing I’m lazy, I’m going to do this in a semi-list sort of way, by period!

-Before School: Pep-fest
Pep-band played for the pep-fest. It went pretty good, and was a good way to start out the day with my band buddies!

-First Period: Spanish I
When I first walked into this classroom, it looked like the special ed classrooms where there aren’t any desks, and just tables in circles. I was being kind of stupid, after seeing my friend Jessica in there, which I know she has Spanish first period with me, asked if it was Spanish I, and it was. I sat with a group I don’t normally sit with. Let’s just say every girl at the table was wearing pink, if you catch my drift. Sadly, I was also being a stereotypical girl, and was wearing pink. There was one boy sitting there, who…. Isn’t gay or feminine, but fit in with the girls pretty well. It was kind of nice to be with a different group. After sitting down I did notice one of my theater friends sitting at another table, but after being welcomed to the table I was at, I didn’t want to just get up and leave. I would like to note that Jessica, for those of you who don’t know, isn’t in my tighter group of friends, we talk more on msn, and just in classes we have together, just so you don’t think, “if she is sitting my her friend then how is she sitting with another group?” Got that clear? Good!

-Second Period: Am. History
This teacher wasn’t as fun as I thought he would be, but we did learn more than the classes who has the other teacher, so that’s good! He likes to bring everything local. We just reviewed some things we learned back in 8th grade, but he told us about what was happening in our town and county, which was all stuff I didn’t know, and upon getting home and telling my mom, she didn’t even know about. There was a fort sheltering everyone who lived in our town where a Burger King now stands!! Isn’t that an interesting fact? Okay for those of you who don’t like Social, then ignore that sentence.

-Third Period: Honors Advanced Algebra
Nothing really exciting happened this hour. My teacher looks similar to Audrey Hepburn (the brunette in Baby Mama.) We went over the syllabus, and got started right away, which is what math is a large amount of the time.

-R.A.P.: Basically homeroom
This isn’t something we have daily, just about every other month to get papers, and sign up for homecoming activities. We got our planners, and other non-interesting forms. Last year I had the 9th grade civics teacher, who retired so we got a new R.A.P. advisor who is Mr. Hoof, a keyboarding teacher. If you’re wondering R.A.P. stands for; Reaching All Panthers, and we just pronounce it rap. Hint hint, our team mascot is the panthers, clever, huh?

-Lunch: That thing where you eat
I was pleased to find that there was a decent about of theater geeks in my lunch period so I could chill with them. My Cucumber Under Wraps was very good, thank you very much!

-Fourth Period: Biology
OUR BOOKS ARE AWESOME! They are HUGE and don’t fit in the elastic book covers. (along with my math and English books, GREAT.) The huge part is not the cool part though, The cover is filled up with a huge picture of a PARROT! One of those tropical rainbow ones! The feathers are all fluffed up, and it’s a view from the back, and it has it’s head turned toward you, and it’s just AMAZING! We watched a boring video on science lab safety that we watched in 7th and 9th grade, and took a test on it, that we also took in 7th and 9th grade.

-Fifth Period: English
I’ve known this teacher since I was in Kindergarten. I also had her for study hall last year. I walk in and she says, “Finally I have you for a class!” Which was a nice welcome compared to everyone else’s polite nods. She cut her hair over the summer and I have to admit she looks quite a bit like Professor Trelawney from the Harry Potter series. The girl who sat next to me (we had a seating chart) was talking into thin air, at first I thought she was doing the classic, talk to a friend who is across the room just like she would be talking to the person sitting right next to her. (HAHAH I just sent a the link I linked too up there ^^^ to Jessica and she thought it actually was the English teacher! Oh now, she thought I said it WAS here, and says it doesn‘t look like her. What a sour puss. JUST KIDDING JESS!) Back to the girl who sits next to me. I later find out she is indeed talking to me. By the time I realize this, she says “Doesn’t her hair look funny?” Which I just remain acting like she isn’t talking to me, since while it did look frizzy, I liked this teacher, and wasn’t about to diss her. Our first assignment was a one page paper about us, she gave us some ideas, and then just kind of let us do what we wanted. Want to know my first to words of the paper? “I’m a blogger.” Then I tied everything in the paper back to that. I also said two of my best friends I met on the internet (referring to Nora and Marissa) and I think she might think I’m some crazy obsessed x-box live fanatic now, since that is what most people think with “internet friends.”

Okay, I just hit 1,000 words. I need to get ready for bed. I will write about my last 2 classes and musical later. Maybe even elaborate more on my other classes. I hope you enjoyed this long-ass post from me!

-The Road to Success is Always Under Construction

Today is my last day of summer vacation. My mom and I went through my room and cleaned it out. Sorted the clothes I don’t want or don’t wear any more, organized, and through out about 4 bags of garbage. This is the first year I have felt like I really, truly, like my wardrobe. Yes, it could use a few more jeans and kakis, but for what I do have, I feel like it really is me.(Not that I’m saying I’m superficial and I wouldn’t be who I was without my clothes.) I’ve gotten quite a bit of new clothes since school ended. Well I guess quite a bit can mean a lot of different things, but I got 5 cami soles, 4 shirts, and 2 dresses, plus 1 band concert/speech contest shirt. That is quite a large portion of my wardrobe and what’s left from last year are pants, hoodies, and a few t-shirts for wearing to bed and for those lazy days when I don’t care how I look. I went to auditions in one of my “new” outfits, and got a few gasps and looks of approval. Now just to force myself to take the time to put together outfits and do my hair and make-up and I’ll be set.

This summer I have neglected to wear my glasses, since I really don’t need them for things other than seeing the board and driving. It will take a little effort to remember to grab them, and to get used to the “glasses make-up” again.

As I think all of you know, I’m vegetarian. That makes school lunches just that much more difficult. Let me just say, I’m not a salad person. The only salad I really like is my grandma’s Mediterranean Strawberry salad, and a few select others on certain days. Seeing that is the only thing that is guaranteed to be meat free at my school, I have turned too school lunches. I found a cook book that I got for Christmas last year, that is aimed at kids, and I just kind of said, “Thanks,” and put it away for it to never see the light of the day. One night when I was having trouble sleeping I grabbed the cook book and found out that a whole third of it is dedicated to brown bagging it. They have a whole table with bag lunch ideas, and tons of recipes. For this, I’m really excited for lunch this year. I have already made my first day lunch. It’s “Cucumber Under Wraps” which is a tortilla, with cream cheese, with a quartered cucumber wrapped in the center. Then I have a strawberry yogurt, and a chocolate hermit cookie. Upon school shopping I got a thermos and juice containers, so I can bring my favorite V-8 Tropical Blend juice and once the weather gets nippy I can have warm soup!

I don’t really know how to end this post, seeing I always have had trouble with closing statements. I usually end up with two awkward sentences, and getting a low grade on the conclusion.

-The Road to Success is Always Under Construction

p.s. did anyone notice how my last “paragraph” was a pun?

I’m the kind of person who prefers email, letters, texting, that kind of stuff. I’m a very easy crier. Half the times I will be saying through sobs, “I’m not that upset that I should be crying, but I just can’t control it.” Plus whenever I try to talk for a good period after crying, I start crying again. This is not a good trait to have. I have started to cry when I was talking to a teacher who scares me. It also doesn’t help that other people just don’t understand that I would prefer to not cry. When you start crying people try and comfort you, or get mad at you for being a baby or too emotional. When you aren’t all that upset, and your crying over something small, then when you talk just because you where crying before you start crying, even though you don’t need to be comforted, people feel the need to do it.

I just can’t hold back my emotions very well, and crying is my outlet, when I’m mad or sad.

I think I’m going to stop on question and commenter of the day. It’s just not what I want to be doing now.

Right now I’m just writing when I have something to write about, and if you want to write about something you don’t want to have to stick it a format. Before I was writing to write, and now I’m writing to express.

If you don’t like the rant whiney depressing blog posts ignore this one.

Today we got our results for Musical. Everyone who tries out gets a part. I worked vigorously on my audition. I went beyond memorizing and practiced, practiced, practiced. I spent over 6 hours on preparing my auditions. I know it was more than that, but I don’t want to over estimate myself. That isn’t including the time I spent searching for my audition materials which was probably another 4 hours. I was pretty confident seeing how much work I put into my audition and how a lot of the people in the cast had not gone out before. I have been anxiously awaiting getting the cast list. When I finally got it I couldn’t open it since the director sent it on word which I don’t have on my computer. I forwarded it to my mom on her computer and she copy and pasted it and re-sent it to me. Where was my name? At the bottom, in the ensemble. Several younger less experienced people got multiple roles, and what did I get? Ensemble. If you aren’t familiar with theater the ensemble is the chorus, and consists of a large majority of the cast, only excluding the main characters in most cases. The only other people just in ensemble it is there first year, and are only going out because friends are going out or are goof offs. This doesn’t make sense to me. How come others are getting multiple rolls and I don’t have 1? Would a softball coach have someone sit on the bench and have 1 player play 1st base and left field? Not to mention this isn’t competitive. I would understand a little more if it was competitive, but it’s not, it’s for fun. How is that fair? Yes I know, life isn’t fair, but this is a high school musical.

I’m 16, and in 10th grade. I could get a job, but I choose musical over it. I’m seriously considering quitting because why should I pay 100 dollars for being just another face in the crowd? I could spend that time earning money or on homework and studying.

No question or reader of the day today. I’m hoping you won’t see the need for punishment seeing this is more of a rant then a blog, and it was just to get my feelings out.

-The road to success is under HEAVY construction. Don’t forget that it is raining during this construction.

I’m coming out. No, not as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or as a witch, well actually yes, as a witch, but not the Wicca kind. I’ve always pronounced myself as a Ravenclaw. It does fit me, but since I’ve been reading the books, and looking more into the different houses I realized. I am more of a Hufflepuff then a Ravenclaw. When I originally found this out I denied it. This was when I was in the first book, and thought of Hufflepuffs as the rejects. Now that I am getting into the 2nd half of the 4th book I have realized that the sorting hat would of chosen me as a Hufflepuff. Sorry M and Liz, but I’m leaving your house and joining Michelle. I mean, it’s not YOUR house, like you own it, but the house you take residence in, in the world of Harry Potter. Can we at least still talk in the entry hall?

Sorry for such a short post, but I’m just having trouble blogging. Several times I have considered just quitting. I don’t find the same joy in it as I used too. That long break was a mistake. I’m not going to delete this little blog here, but will probably post less, hopefully I can aim for once a week.

Commenter of the day:
Cocoa, who is a night owl like me (:

Question of the day:
Can’t you guess?
(what house are you in?)

Sorry I know it’s a boring question, and I know most of your answers, but it is what fit’s the post best
