Wow, I hadn’t realized how lazy I had been in my posting. (Forgive me, everyone!) I haven’t posted in a really long time. Sorry about that everybody, I promise I’ll use this summer to get back to my old posting habits. Over my very long break I finally became a high schooler! (Hurray!) I’ll be moving across the country to a pretty cool high school that I’m really excited about. I also became the Youth Diabetes Ambassador for the local chapter. I’ve done alot the past month or so and want to tell you all all about it. =]
Amazing Things March 31, 2008
Wow, I just got back to school from spring break. Isn’t that lovely? I’m already saddled with tons of homework and had to skip track practice. But on the bright side, I received the most excellent news today. I made it to State in Power of the Pen! (It’s a national writing competition) Me and Steven both made it. We are the only students from our school to ever make it past regionals. I am so excited to be going because only the top 15% of writers from regionals got to go onto the competition.
In other good news, I was invited to this female engineering and science career day at this local college. Apparently, I was recommended because of my involvement with the school robotics team. They only invite two or three girls from each school so I’m really excited.
It’s my last quarter ever at my current school until high school so I’ve got to make this one count.
Delayed! January 13, 2008
After an hour long delay I finally arrived at my Grandparent’s house. Our flight was supposed to leave at 8:30 but we had some technical difficulties and we where delayed an hour. Our flight had about 10 other people on it. It was a nice flight and everyone talked to each other. At the end I was sad to say good bye to all the nice people I met there.
I had my interview for high school today. I think I did a good job. If I passed the first round interview, I’ll have to fly back up here in a few months for a tour and another interview. I’m so excited! The school was beautiful and very, very large. It is a college prep school. Some kids will live on campus but I’ll be living with my grandparents. I hope I get accepted!
Pushing Daisys October 8, 2007
Wow, this week I’ve watched alot of new shows. I watched Chuck for the first time. (Pretty funny, you should see it) The slighty funny, mostly weird new show Cavemen was only watchable. And Moonlight, about a vampire detective, was alot better than it sounds. And Bionic Women, as expected, is action packed and really cool.
Now prepare for me to push the show Pushing Daisys. It’s about a pie maker named Ned who, under unfortunate circumstances, discovers that he has the power to bring the dead back to life. But as with every gift there is a catch. If he touches someone after he’s brought them back to life they will die again. For good. Also once he keeps a dead person alive for a minute someone else will have to die in their place.
It’s a funny show in a tragic kind of way. He brings the dead back to life for a minutes, asks them who killed them, and collects the reward money. It gets complicated after he brings Chuck, his childhood friend, back to life after she was strangled on a cruise and tossed overboard. I won’t say how the episode ends but it involves retired ex-mermaids, eye patches, monkey statues, and an overly affectionate travel agent. That’s my kinda show.
