Readers! You shall be excited, for I have a extra special surprise for you! Now, I know you’re all jumping with joy and shouting at the top of your lungs saying, “WHAT IS IT, OH BELOVED BLOGGER?!?” Which to I answer, I’m not telling you. Hehe, I’m so evil. Okay, I’m not evil, but I do like to put people in suspense, guessing that people enjoy my blog enough to get in suspense about something that has to do with it.

This special little extra special surprise will be revealed on August 28th. Although there will be clues throughout the time between now and then to what that surprise is! I may have even hidden some in blog posts previous to this one, so go on, try and figure it out. I know you want too!

Okay now to an actual blog, type blog. The problem? I don’t really know what to say. No not blogger’s block, but more…. Idea block. If that makes sense.

How about a new little segment called, My Road’s book club? It may just be a one time thing, or it may be reoccurring, remember it’s me we are talking about, nothing is guaranteed (other than question and commenter of the day.)

Now I’m reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. With my whole being busy thing I haven’t been reading it at the speed of the first two, but I’m still enjoying it at a pace that fits me. I’m only around 100 pages in, if that.

I’m really into comparing books, and the movies based off them. The movies are always disappointing, sorry to say, but most of the time there is a reason it is changed. The reason, to be truthful, is always the same, it’s to make it better in the box office. Now, believe it or not, there are people who go to a movie based off a book, even though they haven’t read the book. :O Shocking as it may be, the directors and screen writers need to attract to that audience, along with the critics. For example, in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, in the book the snake is 20 feet long. While a snake 20 feet long would scare just about anyone (other than Tom Riddle) out of their socks, it isn’t enough for the box office. They then tripled the length of the snake, for the big bucks. One change in the movie series I don’t get is why Peeves was cut out. I love Peeves! I think that some people would come to the movie just for him, doubtful, but possible. Does anyone see any reason for the cutting of Peeves? Does he really take up that much room in the movie that his scenes are too long? There are some things purely cut out for length, like some things that take several days to occur, in the movie it appears to happen in 1 night, with everything in between used for suspense, is cut out.

Commenter of the day:
Nora
Who worries about disappointing people.

Question of the day:
What are differences you have noticed from book to movie?

Tomorrow I have my first day of Driver’s Education. I’m actually excited, even though I’ve heard several horror stories of just how boring it is. Even if it is Boring, it will still be Driver’s Education. In my state you can take Driver’s Ed at 15 and take the driver’s permit test once passing the class. I’m 16, which is the age where most kids take their driver’s test, and get their license. So yes I am a little behind. Also I should add that most of the people I have heard from that it is boring also find almost all of their classes boring. One thing that I’m not looking forward with it is that there will be mostly the grade under me and my grade in the class. If I would of taken it this time last year it would have been mostly the grade above me, which I would prefer. But it’s not last year, I will have to live with it.

 The class is 2 weeks long 9am-12pm Monday-Thursday, Friday being the makeup day. My friend Beatrice who is also 16 and the grade above me is also enrolled in the class. The worst part of that is that the seating arrangement is alphabetical. With my last name starting with an L and her last name with a W, we will not be seated next to each other. 😦

 So as many of you know I still have my kitty Grissom with me. If you go back to this post you will see that he was going to be given up. It has been over a month and he is still here. I’m hoping that my mom has just procrastinated to the point that it is just not going to happen.

Grissom :D

 In other pet related news, my mom has laid down the law that no snakes will be entering this house on purpose. She did however say she would be fine with a lizard. Right now I am looking at Geckos. I’d like a Blue Tongue Skink, but we don’t have room for a 40 gallon tank, believe it or not. I’m really excited about this Gecko business! I am saving up my money (yes again) so I can buy a tank for it, since our 10 gallon tank won’t cut it. I also will need a good chunk of money for the Gecko, tank accessories, and heating accessories. Not to mention crickets to feed it, and money to buy crickets for awhile after buying it.

QUESTION OF THE DAY:
 If you could take a road trip to any place in the country with no worry of paying for gas or having a vehicle/license, where would you go?

 I would go to the state in which Nora and Marissa reside in to pick them up, then Washington and then too California, then back to Nora and Marissa’s state to drop them back off, and back home!

 Commenter of the day for my last post is Michelle who’s answer to the question: “What is your dream number of kids/order/gender?” was “I think when I settle down, I’d like to have 3-4 kids. I know I want at least one boy and one girl. Possibly 2 of each.”

p.s. No punishment for last post for having no featured commenter for 2 reasons.

 A) No one caught it XD

 B) No one answered the question other than Marissa who had one the day before.

AHH! This is the last post I will have until next Friday or Saturday! Sadface 😦
BUTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully next time I will be on my computer I am getting on Friday! YAY! You can all clap and cheer as you wish!

Tomorrow I am heading out on an epic camping trip with my mother. We’re going to go fishing and it’s just going to be epic and amazing and GAH! That is why I won’t be able to post for awhile! But when I come back it will be epic and great, and will blow your brains out! Okay don’t let it do that, since then all my viewers will be dead and the blog will soon after die! Which isn’t good, believe it or not.

This post = fail. I’m sorry. I just wanted to let you know I will be gone! But when I come back epicness will be here! Why not a picture? Yes a picture! How about me being the world’s sexiest maid?

Epic, huh?

I ALMOST FORGOT TO MENTION!
RANDOM QUESTION OF THE DAY!!!
Nora from junkinmahcranium is the featured commenter from last time! It was quite deep, even though I don’t have it memorized to type here! Go check that Blonde gangster!

AND TODAY’S QUESTION (drum roll please)
What is your favorite old cartoon from the ’90’s to early 2000’s?

Mine would probably be Doug. He was amazing! With his crush Phoebe! I love that name

Answer with your answer in the comments yo!

-OKAY, LOVE YA, BYE BYE
p.s. Sorry you’ll only understand the salutation if you where in Beauty and the Beast with me, and none of you where, sorry 😦

Wow. It doesn’t seem like it’s been, what 6 days since I last blogged! I have no excuses for not blogging on Wed. or Thursday. Friday I was babysitting and this weekend i went on a very interesting last minute camping trip. Now It’s Monday and I’m glad to be blogging again.

Someone’s blog I read did a post on lyrics. She asked “what are your favorite lyrics?” One of her favorite’s where from a tv show. Strange Days of Blake Howsly High, to be exact. Thinking about mine, mine are also from a tv show, Degrassi The Next Generation. I’ve been watching this show quite alot lately, thanks to no school and this like giant June Degrassi marathon. I used to watch it back when it just came out, When Emma, JT, Liberty were in 7th grade and Spinner, Ashley, Paige were in 8th. Now Spinner and them are graduated. Okay now onto the lyrics part of it. I don’t know all of the lyrics too the theme song, but the most repeated part is “We’re going to make it through” [note this is the original theme song, not the new lame one that has like no words] To me, this is such a true lyric/quote. High School isn’t easy. Expecially if you compare it to how they tell you about it in the ackward 9th grade orientation by the National Honor Society. I remember being told their over and over, “these will be the best years of your life,” “The four years will go by so fast,” and “the friends you meet here will be your friends for the rest of your life.” So far, none of these are true for me. My 9th grade year was the 2nd worst year in my life, after 8th grade. The last month in 9th grade, was the worst month in my life. The year did go by faster then previous years, so I guess that is kind of true. In my school I don’t even really have a best friend. I have a group I’m close to and hang out with, but I’m yet to have a sleepover, or a more than 2 minute phone call with any of them. I also can’t stand my grade, as I’ve mentioned before, so don’t worry I won’t go on about that. But the group I’m close with, is a year above me, so hopefully some awesome new nerd kids come to my grade before Senior year! “The friends you meet here will be your friends for the rest of your life,” Looking at adults in my life, this isn’t true for any of them. My grandma, all her friends are from work, red hatters, or college. My mom doesn’t have much of a social life, just some work friends. I have a ton of more examples, but I don’t want to go on about that. OKAY I just kind of noticed I got REALLY off topic. Back to the lyric “we’re going to make it through” As I’ve said several times so far, High School is long, not fun, and just hard, but you know what? We’re going to make it through, one way or another.

Now that I’m on the quote/lyric page I want to talk about my motto for this blog. “Under Construction.” The road to success is alway under construction. This is true in two ways. 1.) If you grew up in the 60’s  your path to success might be to pass High School, and if you wanted a job with a degree you got a 2-4 year degree. You knew for some reason you wheren’t supposed to do drugs, but it was never made clear, so you did them, not really knowing how bad they where. If you grow up now the path to success is about getting good grades, being ready to compete in a global market, trying to take advance classes so you can take college classes your junior and senior year to get into the real world sooner, saving for college, being in plenty of extra curriculars to get into a good college. I’m not saying that no one worried about some of these things in the 60s, but it was different, even if I am really bad at making examples. 2.) YOUR path to success is always under construction. Maybe you entered High School on the B honor roll. you had trouble with some teachers and ended up flunking half your classes, and now your path to success is to pass summer school and keep a D average through the rest of high school, and not drop out. Maybe you entered High School at a D average, trying to just get through, ended on B honor roll and planning a career as a Intererior designer. [input your path to success and how it has changed in comments]

My path to success, and how has it changed: I started out in 5th grade really being into politics. I decided I wanted to be a lawyer since that is a good job to have before you run for state office. I believed that’s what I wanted until 9th grade. At our school we have a class called Focus. It is required for all 9th grade students. In this class we learn life skills and how to find careers and plan our high school classes for certain careers. We also had a big project where we had to research all the jobs we are interested in. Of course, I researched Lawyer. I found that wasn’t a career for me. I found that a career in Radioligy was more my forte. We also had to shadow someone in the field we were interested in. I still would like to be legislator or Senator, since politics is somthing that really interests me, but I might just start out a little different.

What are you really interested in? Are you a left wing or a right wing? are you democratic or republic? What are your views on Abortion? Creation or evolution? Gay marriage? All that stuff interests me so much. I have my opinions, which for all of that stuff is very left wing, and for those of you who don’t know that:
I’m Democratic.
I’m pro-choice.
I believe in evolution.
I support same sex marriage.

I love hearing other people’s opinions on political issues. I love having arguments over those things. I’m very open minded. I really doubt you’ll be able to change my mind on any of the above issues, but I’m always ready to listen to why someone thinks the opposite of what I am for is more correct.

I have been convinced that biblical creation should be taught in any class where evolution is taught, but then students should not be allowed to get notes out of class for one or the other. I am a total believer in evolution, but I know it isn’t proven, so we should be taught the other side of it. The hard part about teaching it would be you’d probly have to do a whole unit on it and what different parts of the world, and different religion beliefs. I wish it was taught, since I’d like to learn more about it, call me crazy.

This is one of the reasons I really liked Obama’s platform. He is open to listen to the other side. Now he doesn’t talk about creation and evolution, but when creating laws he listens to the other sides opinion. He even has Republicans in his cabnet! I find that so amazing! I think of myself as alot like Obama. Just how we are both so open to listening to the other side.

Okay, this blog post has gone from tv show lyrics, to under construction, to paths to success, to beliefs, to Obama! Wow, no wonder this is such a word pwn of  1314 words!

-Under Construction

HI BLOGGY! I’m glad I’m writing this now and not an hour and a half ago. I have a draft of todays blog. it was depressing. Lets say I had a notsome day with lots of imature people, freshman and teachers alike. But i’m not notsome now so, BLOG STOP BRINGING ME BACK TO THAT MOOD! So today I’ve been mood swinging alot. Okay since I got home I have been. So I thought i would take a chance to write a list (more of a list and explanation of each item on the list) of everything that makes me happy and or smile!

  • My online friends: Nora and Marissa you two are my best online friends ever! Okay i’ve only had 2 before you that lasted more than like an hour but STILL! You both know how to make me smile. marissa and your optimism! Nora and your awesome ideas! I’m so exited for our book exchange! I’m exited for both of your letters! You both can expect a little somthing that isn’t just the letter (book for Nora) in your mail boxes around the middle to end of next week!
  • Lunch Period: My Sophmore friends are amazing! I went to lunch today all notsome and barely talking. How did I leave lunch you might ask. I left it smiling and laughing to myself!
  • Video Productions: Useally this would make me feel notsome. But now I’m editing a video with my bestie in it and she just got so into her role that its hillarious. It was intended to be a drama, but she, she with her marvolous acting skills turned it into more of a comedy. I always have people peeking over my shoulder seeing what the grunting and evil laughing is!
  • Visiting old friends/family: does this need explanation

okay i’m getting distracted now by planning for this weekend! I hope You enjoyed
