       Yay, English Festival was one of the best days ever. I really enjoyed it and Joan Bauer’s speech was excellent. She was funny and crazy. I actually got to talk to her for a little while after her speech. She told me that I have to write about what I know. She autographed my copy of Thwonk and took a picture with me. She also talked about her new book Peeled, about a corupt newspaper that instills fear in a small community. It sounded really good, I have to buy it the next time I’m at the book store.

     I also had some other classes during the day. I heard a speech by Chris Crutcher, king of censorship and author of The Sledding Hill and Whale Talk. I made a new friend named Eliza, she and I had the same class schedule so we walked to all our class together.

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.
