- J.R.R. Tolkien
For those of you who haven't given up on me yet, I'm going to start blogging again. Ha. I guess I'll update you on what I've been up to lately.
These last 3-4 weeks have been suprisingly busy. As we came to the end of the year, it was obvious how bad Ike really affected us. Every teacher crammed everything into these last few days. But, now that that is over, life is good again!! I have conquered and completed Sophomore year!
The last issue of the Newspaper came out May 15, I believe. It was really nice to have the paper be done with, even though it was really fun. We also had banquet on Monday night, and I recieved "Best Attitude" and "Best Rookie" award. I also got "Most likely to make any situation awkward." Ha. But it was fun, short and sweet. I'm not returning next year, but not because I don't want to, more because I need to get some other credits out of the way. I'm going to miss it a lot, but, I think it'll be better to have that stress gone.
In WHAP, we have done pretty simple, calming things, but work nonetheless. We did a mosaic project that was fun, but took FOREVER. I did Anne Boyeln (I think that is how you spell her name). It turned out good, I thought. And Mrs. Lawrence put it up on the board with like 6 other ones. So, that was pretty cool. I gave it to Mama, because she wants to frame it and put it up in her house, hha. I turned in my book for that class yesterday, and it was the best feeling in the world!! Goodbye WHAP!!!
And how every other class slowly died down, theatre became my stressful class. First, we had to finish our directing stuff that we've been doing since February!(Dude, it was fun at first, but got tiring). Then while we were finishing our directing scenes, we had to also make a costume. That was very stressful. I pretty much went to theatre every other period to work on it and was there till 4:00 on Wednesday, but I finally finished it. It was a dress from the 20's. I liked the fabric when I got it, but I think after looking at it for so long, it looked disgusting to me. The costume was like 12 sizes to big, so it looked like I was a witch (the fabric was black.) But, people seemed to like it, and they liked my monologue too. So, that was good! Then, I also had to stress about Banquet. I didn't have any idea what I would do for my costume for that, and I had to deal with planning it and stuff. I didn't really plan it, but I had to stay after to work on awards and the gift (which others took care of it, so I guess I was let off the hook?) and just everything else. But I finally figured out a costume (it wasn't that exciting, and no one else thought so too.. half of them didn't even know I was wearing a comstume. But it worked, so I don't care.) And I also had to stress about campaigning. But, it all worked out because Banquet was a lot of fun. I was re-elected Treasurer (thanks to the people who voted), and I had a lot of fun. It was also sad because of senior speeches and stuff, but it was good.
Once I checked all that off my list, I just had to go one more boring day and survive!! And I don't have to take any finals this semester.. hahha. So I am already kicked into summer mode and I love it! I plan to relax this summer, hopefully keep my self occupied though, and hopefully I'll hang out with more school friends this year... especially theatre. I'm excited for this summer... for camp and 16th birthday and (hopefully) getting my permit/license soon after (daddy... we need to go driving soon!) and then at the end of the summer... saying bye to Molly. That'll be hard. But, I'm going to enjoy this summer and not worry about that till later.
Well, thanks for reading.
This isn't going to be a long blog... trust me, I'll get to it. I just haven't updated in about a month. Sorry about that, everything has been just cramming into these last two weeks.
AP TESTS ARE OVER. That is good news.
-I am so ready for summer.
-Theatre has never been so stressful.
-I had my last ABS last night for the year. It really put me in a funk.
-I am so glad that Kris Allen won American Idol!!
-I am doing tech for the Senior Direct plays. It's really fun.
-I wish that I wouldn't dream so much, cause I am only setting myself up for failure.
-I wish I didn't get jealous so easily, it's not a comfortable feeling.
