hey doodlebugs

Well, I noticed that our blog is severely lacking in posts so I will contribute :P

I'm not sure what about my super exciting life you would like to hear about, so I will just go ahead and tell you what I've been doing this past week...or what is worth mentioning.

Nummmmmmber one.
buttonholes + buttons = coat soon to be finished
So very excited about that! Then I will finally be able to wear it!

Numero deux!
I'm starting to get better at improv due to the 'basic freeze' games we play at RSA :) ...funny, I hate it in school drama classes...

Number three!
I'm getting 88 in French, 88 in Science, 85 in Socials, and 68 in Math :/
I don't know any of my other marks for term 1, I like them all pretty much. Except math is a little disconcerting but I guess I've never been a math whiz sooooo...

Numero quatre.
I'm going to get my hair cut next next saturday...that's not very important and it hasn't happened yet, so I don't know why I'm bringing it up.
Moving on...

Numero cinq.
Liking the square dancing unit we're doing in PE right now! Hahaha ;)
It's actually kind of fun...but when some guy who is really tall is supposed to "swing" you...you really want to punch them and say "This is on the verge of harassment."

Number six!
I'm finished.

We needed a new post . . .

Yeah cus its TRUE!
It feels like I havent been on the blog forever, so yup it was time for a good post.
Im going to do a questionnaire type thingy but not the one that was on everyone's LASTS posts because I dont feel like flipping the pages back and forth.
Very simply: Im lazy.
ANYHOO, feel free to fill in your own answers if you so may wish.

1. If you could be any [geometric...] shape, which shape would you be?

2. When did you last drink a cup of Joe [aka Coffee] ?

3. Is there something that you wish to share right now?

4. If you could push one person out the window, who would it be? [btw, lets just say your on the third floor...]

5. Why do you think I would ask such a question like number four?

6. If the world was going to end in 2012, [which is TOTALLY wont!] is your life complete?

7. Why is it that some people would rather get perfect grades than have a life?

8. If I was being honest, Its more fun making up the questions than writting in answers . . .and I realise this isnt a question. . . so uhhh what are you wearing on your feet?

9. Dont you just LOVE the band Train?!

10. You dont have to answer all of these, btw

11. But really, isnt Train an AWSOME band!?

12. Do you have hw right now that is totally going unfinished to answer these questions?

13. Why are some people just so freakin WEIRD?!

14. MYSTERY JAM !!!!

15. check yes here if you understood what I meant when I said number 14.

16. Do you have to do laundry? I know right now that I sure do !

17.Should this questionaire thingy end soon?

18. Well, yeah it should.

19. but how about when we get to number twenty?

20. Okay sure.

21. BONUS QUESTION !!!!!!!

22. Okay, thats enough number twenty one, we said we would stop at number 20, and you JUST broke that rule.

21. Well, it looks to me like Im not the ONLY one who broke that rule !

22. - GASP - Take that back !

21. I cant take it back if its the truth !!!

23. Alright guys, Im ending this RIGHT NOW ! We are DONE!

Always remember: When number 21 and 22 get in an argument, number 23 will always be there to break it up :)
That was my words of wisdom-ness advice for today. Come back later and you will probabily get the same one !
ANYWAY, Im really tired. and as you can see, I went all the way down the list and wrote out the questions, but did not answer any [no I did certainly NOT answer number 16, but I simply added a side note :) ] So these are therefor open to interpretation, and please give it a shot ! I might answer them some other time, but for just now I have some math homework that needs tending to.
Enjoy the QUIZ !!!!!!!!!!
and always remember this also: number 23 will ALWAYS be there for you. number 21 and 22 . . .not so much. xD
BYEEE BYEEEE

Does this poem make any sense to you???

I came up with this in about half a minute. It doesn't seem to make any sense, but it sounds cool! Do you see any hidden meaning behind it? Please enlighten me? :)


Beyond the terrace
into the sky,
bask in forgiveness
live without why.

  • live in igloos (and my computer is hooked into ice cables in the snow wall....)
  • all dress like Eskimos and go ice-fishing (duh!)
  • only eat salmon and maple syrup
  • all police = Mounties 
France and the French:

  • ride bicycles everywhere around the Eiffel Tower (because the entire French population lives in that area...)
  • crazy artists with curly mustaches 
U.S.A and Americans:

  • crazy smart people who are all math geniuses (that's right!!!! >.<)
  • eat tofu all the time
  • make pottery all the time
  • squinty eyes
  • Kungfu kungfu kungfu!!!! (Jackie Chan!!! Jet Li!!!!!)
  • chopsticks for eating anything and everything (Elephant!!!!!! eat-eat-eat!!!!!)
Japan and the Japanese:
  • all people eat are sushi, teriyaki, and miso soup (after all, that's what you get in restaurants!)
  • people walk around in kimonos all day in wooden flip flop-like things
Hawaii and Hawaiians (and just about all other tropical places where people go for vacations):
  • everyone wears grass skirts and coconut tops and leis all day (jeans and t shirts are illegal)
  • everyone hula dances (don't you dare try starting a ballet trend!)
  • everyone lives in tiki huts and surf and get tanned all year long
 Australia and Australians:
  • are all native people (yeah, even though everyone knows about the Sydney Opera House)
  • live amongst snakes, kangaroos, koalas, and ostriches in the wild

We are such an educated bunch...

    Behold:
    glamorous pigturducken!!!!
    Search that on Google and there should be two results. This one, and another page which provided the Googlewhack. Ha!!!! >:)

    Opps. . . . . Sorry

    Alright, wow, sorry I havent been on the blog in forever. . .
    it got squashed out of my mind for awhile,
    ANYWAY, glad to be back, :)
    And so yeah,
    Summer Update :
    ITS ALMOST OVER!!!!!! -makes extremely sad face- ! :( :( :( :(
    Yeah, I know, it sucks. But the way I look at it is that this school year will be the best ever for just one simple reason : No Mme Dumais. [or, as we all call her behind her back, ms.Dumbass xD] that alone should be enough to make me want to go back to school, just to know that I wont ever have to walk into that class room again :)
    But hey, I still want my summer. AND ITS GOING WAY TOO FAST!!!!!!!
    BUT on the MAJORLY BRIGHT SIDE : My life will be complete in just 3 more stinkingly long days.
    Do you know why that is?
    Guess.
    Did you guess?
    well Im thinking that only one of you has even the chance to guess it right, and that person is Amy.
    Well, did ya?
    Wait, you dont know the answer yet, so I guess you dont know. . .
    ready for it?
    Its a big one:

    MOCKINGJAY [aka, the THIRD and FINAL book of the most amazing series EVER [[aka aka THE HUNGER GAMES]] is coming out in just
    THREE
    MORE
    DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yup, its something to be excited for! My mom asked me one day, when Im going to read it. and I said : '' Mom, Ive been waiting for this book for two years. Yes, Im going to be there the day it comes out''
    Yeah, thats right TWO YEARS. thats when I read the first book. and the second came out last year in like september and left on a such a big cliff hanger, that it shouldnt even be legal. [cliff hanger is when an auther ends a book and that makes you wonder what happens next and baisically drove me crazy for the past year] Anyway, Ill cut this short: Im really excited. :D :D :D :D :D :D !!!!!!!
    Hmm what else is there. . . ? umm OH!
    Okay so last weekend, I tried waterskiing.
    it was fun, I acctually was able to stand up at some points.
    so yeah, very fun. . . .at the time.
    Not so fun the next day, as my bones were baisically killing me and I was covered in bruises.
    Haha Lesson learned.

    Anyways, Id better go, cus my posts are always too long anyway, but yeah, so I will try to come back to the blog more often from now on, :)
    BYE!!!

    "do you have firearms there in the backseat, young lady?"

    I is back from Leavenworth! HOT HOT HOT over there! the highest was 41C when we were there. . . . I realize I shouldn't complain when it's 28C here :P
    It was fun though! We played mini golf (I sucked, haha), went swimming, gone into random shops there (it's basically a tourist place and no one actually LIVES there unless they work there), I made a goat friend and named him Fuzz, lots of cool things :)

    At Stagecraft we did our production of Grease; it went quite well, but no one was allowed to tape it :( sorry Kitty!
    ...it was so fun to be mean....I wouldn't mind playing Rizzo again (although she thinks she's pregnant for a while but then she's really not ...thank god :P)

    and I just ate an artificial green mango popsicle, haha

    Lame Pun

    Har. I have a bad pun for you guys. Relish in it's punniness!
    I give you all permission to use it in your day to day conversations.

    "There's no point if you're blunt about it!"

    Get it?!?!?!?!? lol.
    So, is that punny enough for you? Or did I just kill off a few thousand of your braincells with it's "bad-ness"???
    Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Wah!! I totally forgot about what I wanted to share with you...=.=

    About a week ago my lil bro took my old broken Ipod-touch and smashed it on the ground. It started working again after 10 months of just a blank white screen. Miracle? Of course and just as a little side note: If you ever are so desperate to make something work, just hit it! LOL Just kidding, Don't follow my advice cause I don't want people to show up at my door saying they broke their favorite stuff even more xD

    Sooo.. When it started working again, I got a whole bunch of poems that I wrote at night on my Ipod-Touch before. I was pretty bummed that I lost them before so I wanted to share them with you guys before I lost it again xD

    I'll Cry with you.

    I care,
    I do more than you ever know .
    I'll be there.
    Just tell me when,
    And I'll cry with you.
    And laugh when you do.
    I'll kill the ones who hurt you,
    And when that doesn't bring you comfort
    I'll cry with you.



    There that's it :) Keep in mind I did write this in the morning and before school like a year ago so it might not be that good :D





    Fish!

    Hey :D I'm so sorry.. this is so random but I just wanted to say that I LOVE that little fishie thing at the side of our blog :) You can feed them more and more and more and they will never get fat or die on you :D My fishies all died not from starvation but most likely either choking on the amount of food we give them or obesity which I'm not sure can happen in fishes or not? Well... Just wanted to say that :) My provincial is in 2 weeks T.T So I have quite a lot of studying ahead of me >.< I hate chemistry... I read that post about Adam Lambert and I agree :) He is quite good and gay really has nothing to do with it. I know you guys are going to argue with me about this but I sorta like Justin Bieber's music. *Bomb drops on Lanny's House* LOL Yeah I know he's a short little kid who hasn't hit puberty yet and his songs are ALWAYS about love and girls and such but I think he's still a really talented kid for his age and it was pretty amazing that he just started out on youtube. I really like his voice too although a lot of people think he sounds like a girl. Okay, That was my one embarrassing confession for the day. How bout you guys?

    Nom nom nom

    So today we had 3 hours of choreography/dance and we actually did some better work without the script and did some blocking as well :)

    Kitty and Hyper: Rizzo's the head honcho of the Pink Ladies (the popular group) and she's basically the 'mean girl' with the attitude and bitchy-ness ;) It's so fun exaggerating stuff like that >:)

    WE GO TOGETHER RAMMA LAMMA LAMMA KA DINGA DA DINGA DONG! . . . hehehee

    After theatre camp, we're going straight to Leavenworth the next day from the 24-28 :) ROAD TRIPPPPP! love road trips . . .don't know why I love riding in cars, I guess it's comfy?
    Leavenworth's this Whistler-esque bavarian village . . . lots of tourists go there so it's relatively safe for being in the USA xD

    Holy cheese and rice!

    Okay so first day of Stagecraft Theatre School musical theatre camp . . .

    1. We get there at 9am . . . there's 16 people from 11-15 yrs
    2. Intros with improv games
    3. We're given scenes to perform with 10 minutes prep
    4. We find out we're doing Grease (musical set in the 1950s but I'm sure everyones heard of it!) for the show at the end of the camp; with lights, choreography, chorus and solo numbers, etc etc . . . but its a serious time crunch as we have to get it all together in a week! with lines needing to be memorized by TOMORROW and songs memorize by WEDNESDAY :O
    5. Do a cold-read of the script
    6. Mini "auditions" so Miss Christine and Miss Rachel can cast us; singing about 16 bars of a song of your choice and we were taught a few lines from "We Go Together" to sing for them one by one

    7. BREAK TIME (5 minutes while they very quickly decide who to cast)

    8. I'm cast as Rizzo!
    9. And now we spend about an hour learning the songs and the solos and stuff like that
    10. 1:30 . . . 20 minute lunchbreak! :)
    11. And we're back! Until 3 we continue working on songs
    12. 3pm, it's time to go home

    Tomorrow we're going to do some choreography and dance, along with the songs and a bit of the scenes, as we had to memorize all our lines tonight!
    It's gonna be fun :)
    See ya laterrr!

    Summer School and Uni :P

    Wahhhh.. So bored... Nikki is off at peace river and natalie is at a theater camp :( But on the bright side they are having fun which is a lot more than i can say for myself since i started summer school >.< Summer school was intense... I have tests every other day and although the material is not that hard.. The test put in a lot of questions that are sorta trick questions and stuff that only the nerdy people who learn more about the subject can answer.... I feel so pressured for university and stuff like that.. I want them to see my good grades not my bad ones :P I think UBC is probably my first choice but if NUS accepts me... ( NUS is the National University of Singapore.) I know I'll only going into my grade 10 year next year but half of my courses are grade 11 course :( I feel like this is going to be the last "relaxed summer' i will get =.= *sigh* I hope all of you guys are having fun :) I think i'm just putting the pressure on myself a litttllleee too much :) That's why I have so many white hairs xD

    Long time, long time

    HI THAR!

    Hey guys, sorry about the absence . . . for a while i couldn't post because the "new post" button WAS NOT THERE >:O

    Hmm, so what is going on with me?
    Well yesterday, I went to metrotown with Joyce and Li-anne and we ate all-you-can-eat sushi [Lanny was sooooo happy], took sticker photos and played around at toys r us :P
    Today I went with my mom to commercial, buy the big Value Village [LOVE THAT PLACE!], looked around the vintage shops and walked Merlin in the park
    Tomorrow, musical theatre camp starts!!! From 9am-3pm everyday Monday to friday :) love love love

    Maple Grove Volunteering


    At 1:00 pm today, I left our apartment with my bag of juice, snacks, a glasses case, sunscreen, my cellphone (but not my Ipod, since somehow everything in it got deleted (nooooooo!!!!!!! My Adam Lambert songs!!!! *cries in anguish*) and Itunes tells me it's corrupted every time I try to stick it in the USB slot) and went to the 16th Arbutus bus stop. I had checked the bus schedule, checked Google maps, texted the bus schedule on my phone, and found out that there was a bus arriving at 1:09 pm, and I decided to take that one; it would leave me 15 minutes to find my way back if I got lost and arrived in Alaska instead. But nooooooooo, the bus comes at 1:22, leaving me 8 minutes to get to Maple Grove Pool and no chance of arriving in time if I did happen to bus to Alaska accidentally. So everyone who relies on careful planning; abandon all hope when it comes to the public transit. You're better off buying a private jet to fly you there, since with all the time combined you spend waiting at bus stops, you would become a billionaire anyway. 
    Actually, you would probably just waste it on something else even more pointless. But at least it would be FUN pointless and not oh-my-god-why-is-the-sun-so-annoyingly-hot-today-and-when-is-this-stupid-bus-going-to-come-I-could-have-stayed-home-instead-but-I-can't-go-back-now-because-I-might-actually-miss-the-bus-and-that-would-be-even-stupider pointless.
        I don't use monthly passes anymore (thank God! I put it in my wallet, my wallet gets lost, I attach it to my key-chain, my key-chain gets lost; story of my grade 8 life) , so I took out one of the concession passes that you put in the slot machine and got on.
        "Thank you" the bus driver tells me, like all of them do. I smile back even though inside I am cringing, thinking of the 15 minutes I spent aimlessly waiting for the stupid bus. There was around 11 blocks from my apartment to the pool, and no, I did not want to walk there even though it only takes 20 minutes. I did not want to arrive covered in sweat, ok?
        To top off my lovely journey to the pool, the bus was not displaying the proper stops. We are almost at 41st Street, "Next stop is 45th" the sign says. We almost arrive at 45th Street, "Next stop is 49th" it reads. I see my stop right ahead: 51st Street. "Next stop is 60th", the sign proudly displays.
    I get off anyway, trusting street signs are more accurate than the bus stop display. I walk a couple blocks to the right; voila!!!!!!!! Maple Grove Pool: a lovely outdoor pool with a playground and grass on all sides.
        At the front desk, I ask the worker where volunteers should go. "Go talk to that lady in the red shirt there." she points and lets me in without taking the entrance fee. The lady is a lifeguard. I walk over, introduce myself, and started working with the other two girls on the cotton candy machine. One of the girls is from my badminton class - my only familiar face of the day.
        We start chatting randomly.
    "Do you like Asian songs, or white songs?" the unfamiliar girl asks.
    I assume by "white" she means the mainstream songs over here, but before I can answer...
    "Let me guess!" the girl from my badminton class says, "Asian, right?"
    "How do you know that?" the other girls asks.
    "You look like an Asian song person!" she tells me.
    "Uh... I like the songs here." I tell them.
    "Ha!" the other one says.
    "I'm an Adam Lambert fan" I say.
    "What? You like 94.5?" they ask.
    "I'm an Adam Lambert fan." I repeat.
    "Ooooh." They say.
    "He looks like (name of someone I've never heard of and do not remember)." They say to each other.
        How to operate a cotton candy machine and other procedures:
    Dump a bunch of coloured sugar in the cup in the middle, making sure it does not overflow.
    Be prepared with a paper cone in hand.
    Turn on the "motor" switch.
    Turn on the "heat" switch.
    Watch the thing spin around at a billion miles an hour.
    Once you see flossy strings coming out, stick your paper cone in, and turn the cone around in your hand while circling the cone around the cup.
    Keep doing it until you have a lovely amount of sugar floss on the cone.
    Admire your creation.
    Realize it's melting in the sun.
    Sell it in a hurry.
        I got bored of making cotton candy after awhile, so I went to a tent across the pool where they were face painting for free. No, I did not want my face painted! I wanted to paint other people's faces.
    At the tent there were other things too; colouring sheets with crayons, sidewalk chalk, 'tattoos', and balloons.
        The first girl that came up to me wanted a heart. 'This should be easy enough' I thought. You do not know how annoying face painting can be. There's no way to shade, faces are soft, and the tip of the crayon like thing has to be wet to just the right amount otherwise it will not draw, or drip all over the place.
        I got better, though. It soon became very fun.
    "Hi there!" I beam at them.
    "Hi" they say shyly.
    "Wanna get your face painted? It's free!" I call.
    "Ok" they say.
    "Take a seat! What would you like?" I smile.
    "A (unicorn/ seahorse/ mermaid)!" they say proudly.
    "Uh... anything else? Less... complicated?" I ask hopefully.
    "Um..." they ponder.
    "How about a flower?" I say with enthusiasm leaking out my ears.
    "Ok!" They smile.
    "What colour would you like your flower to be?" I ask.
    "Pink!" They say.
    "We don't have pink... would you like purple instead?" I say.
    "Ok!" They smile.
        Here's what I drew for my lovely customers (very cute toddlers and kids!): flowers, butterflies, ladybugs, hearts, frogs, rainbows, clouds, suns, stars, vampire teeth with dripping blood,    and a crowd favourite (for the girls anyway (I did it for one girl, and all the others who saw her wanted me to do it for them, and then other girls saw it, and wanted me to do it for them, and so on) - princess makeup. That's right: PRINCESS MAKEUP. It's actually the simplest one to do. First of all, I do "eye shadow" (solid, one tone swoop of colour on their eyelids) then do these bead like things on their forehead (in this kind of pattern (the "|" shapes would be one colour while the " ' " shapes where in another)):
    '    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    '
         '    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    '
              '    |    |    |    |    |    |    |    ' 
                   '    |    |    |    |    |    '
                       '     |    |    |    '
                             '    |    '
                                  '
        The beads on the forehead thing was something I remembered from when I was around 5 or six. There was a festival around where we were living and I looooooooved getting my face painted back then. I went to the tent, and a lady gave me the bead design above. I felt like royalty for the entire afternoon... I loved it! I hoped the girls for whom I drew like it too!
        At around 5:40 pm, we began to pack up. We folded up the tent, the chairs, and the tables, gathered up the paper, crayons, face paints, and sidewalk chalk. While the other volunteers took all the tables and materials back to the building, I stayed behind and help the lifeguard shove the folded up tent back into its bag. You know those books you read where there's this giddy teenage girl gushing about how hot a lifeguard is? Everyone's read one. I'm not going to spaz like that, but I have to say, every single male life guard there was exactly what they described in books. I swear to God, it's true. I mean, from all the descriptions of lifeguards you've read, put the best features together: tan, fit, muscular, tall, nice hair. THEY ALL MATCHED THE DESCRIPTION.*glares at floor*
        While we were putting the tent in its bag, I put all my attention to staring at how the fabric of the tent bag was weaved together, how wide the zipper for the bag was, how the tent fit in, basically kept myself from looking at him at all unless I had to. Not that I was too much of a help. Most of the putting away needed pure strength. Guess who had more. *glares at ceiling*
        There was one table left, so he went to fold that up and left the tent for me to roll back. Fair enough, except he folded it up, carried it to the building, and had to come back to help me with the tent because it kept flipping over on my long journey to my destination 20 meters away. I know he was being nice, and I should have been grateful, but right as he came to me, the thing flipped over again. I hate feeling helpless and weak, what with the past discrimination of women thing. *glares at wall*
        "Thank you." I said as he wheeled it the rest of the way gracefully.
        I went back to the cotton candy tables where they were wiping up melted sugar from the machine. There was a jumble of extension cord on the ground, and I carried it back to the building. I walked in, but had no clue where to put it. I asked another lifeguard, with a towel draped over his shoulder, in the room, and he showed me the shelf where all the cables went. "Thank you!" I called again as I hurried out the room.
        The lifeguards had all just come out the water... In other words... shirtless. It was like a scene out of a book where things were described a little too perfect. I tried not to let my eyes wander anywhere and walked back to the cotton candy tables. They had finished wiping away the sugar, and we folded up the tables to take them back. More lifeguards everywhere. I don't think any of the female lifeguards went in the water!
        As we were about to leave, the lifeguard I talked to in the beginning called us over, asked for our names, and told us that we were the best group of volunteers to work with. I don't know if that's the truth, but I was touched!
        I left right after, wanting to get home. The bus came after eight minutes of waiting. On the bus, I met the girl from the cotton candy stand again, and we chatted until my stop came. She told me she would add me on Facebook so we can tell each other about volunteer opportunities we hear of. I arrived home by 6:30 pm.
    Fun day!

    wiiiiiiiiiind

    GUESS WHAT?!?!?!?!
    THE WIND WAS HUUUUUUUUUUUGE LAST NIGHT!
    WOKE UP THIS MORNING AND THREE CARS PARKED OUTSIDE OUT APARTMENT WERE SQUASHED BY A TREE BRANCH THAT GOT BLOWN OFF! LIKE.... HOLY COW!
    I WENT OVER WITH ANOTHER GIRL FROM MY APARTMENT AND WE PLAYED WITH BROKEN GLASS. I KNOW THAT SOUNDS WEIRD, BUT IT WAS REALLY COOL. THE GLASS HAD SHATTERED BUT STILL STUCK TOGETHER SOMEHOW, SO WE PICKED UP THESE PIECES OF GLASS LACED WITH CRACKS AND DROPPED THEM ON THE PAVEMENT, JUST TO WATCH IT SHATTER. XD

    An email to a friend from elementary school that I bumped into in summer school that I figured could double as a post! :D

    Hey thar! XD
    I was really surprised to see you too! I didn't react for quite a bit because I was so shocked. I like your skirt! :D
    I'm taking French (to improve, like you :D ), drama for fun, and sewing for more tedious fun.
    Other than summer school, I don't think my family has anything special planned for this summer... but if there is something, it's probably shopping in the states! XD
    The beach would be a fantastic idea. The weather is stupid, if I wanted to start sweating the minute I stepped out of the shower, I would have gone to China, not stay here. bleh. I can imagine myself coming out of the water at a beach and having all of it drying in 5 seconds. Then all this salty white stuff would be left on me. stupid sun; I hate extreme exposure.
    I don't really have homework so far... well, depends on what you mean by homework. nothing written, but I have a French test tomorrow and I have to buy my own fabric for a skirt we're making in sewing class. :P
    Thank you for your long email, I had fun reading it, maybe we will meet up again in summer school! :D

    Hey! I haven't told you yet. All the people currently around me know this: I AM OBSESSED WITH ADAM LAMBERT. I know he's gay, but I love him! Harharhar. Don't know if you wanted to know that, but neither do the people around me, hehehe. I even told my friends in my drama class. Everyday I walk in listening to my ipod and they say "Are you listening to Adam Lambert?". They're always right. :D Our drama teacher always gives us "questions of the day" and obviously, we get one everyday. She chose the perfect question today: IF YOU WERE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND WITH A CELEBRITY OF YOUR CHOICE FOREVER, WHO WOULD YOU CHOSE? Half the class knew what I was going to say before it was my turn. Stranded on an island? With no one else but one celebrity? FOREVER?!?! HELLO?!?!?!

    ADAM LAMBERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    haha, hope you liked my email! XD

    Camp :D

    Hey you guys :D I almost forgot this blog existed.. Sorry :P well anyways I just came back from camp and I still smell like campfire smoke cause of all the fires Ian and Dan built ( Ian and Dan are my brothers and both scouts obsessed with making fires xD ) I was in Tofino for this little family camping adventure but for some reason my iPhone keeps on spellchecking "tofino" to "Torino" which apparently is some place in Italy and now everyone thinks I went to italy to camp. Which is stupid because if I went to Italy I probably wouldn't go camping xD although that would be cool too :D I'd rather go eating :) School's over but I still have summer school and a provincial to get through :( science 10 is the course I'm taking and coincidentaly it comes with a provincial exam too =.= garhhhhhh... Well.. I guess that comes with with wanting to get ahead in school... Well bye :D I'll try to blog more now that I have an iPhone and it's the summer so byeeee :D

    TODAY...

    ...was the last day of school :)
    I will post a bunch of random, and pointless things that happened today just because I haven't posted in about forever.
    I fell asleep at one this morning because I was working on my socials essay...which I actually didn't end up finishing, and I should probably be working on right now because I have to email it to my teacher.
    I woke up around six hours later, but just slept in for another hour, and left at like 8:34 or something...surprisingly, I made it to class before the second bell (8:40). That may seem like it actually took a long time, considering how close I live, but walking up that many stairs in the morning is not very fun.
    We basically didn't do anything in french besides hand in locks (my locker was already cleaned out) and socialize.
    In PE everyone was kind of annoyed at the fact that we had to change. After our "reflective" walk around the driveway with freezies, it was just open gym. In other words, just sitting in the back of the gym while people on either side of me were taking random creeper pictures.
    I was in the library working on my essay all lunch (which, sadly, I didn't finish then, either).
    My science class is the most boring thing in the WHOLE WORLD. We watched Finding Nemo, while I was writing my name all over my binder, boredly (I don't think that is even a word...probably not).
    Socials...makes my day. We gave our teacher an umbrella (of respect) with a whistle attached to it and a "Simmer down, children" t-shirt. Honestly, my socials teacher is crazy. She is so easily distracted...she'll talk to us all class. We played Trivial Pursuit for the last 20 minutes, then randomly started charades, but she went back to trivia, because everyone going up was just imitating her throwing stuff at people...(which has happened :P) We did a cheesy countdown at the last ten seconds.
    After socials, I went up to get my stuff from my locker...which was really stupid, as I had my backpack with everything in it with me, and my locker didn't have anything in it, or a lock.
    Then, as I was walking downstairs, there was this ginormous explosion of fireworks that smelt really bad. I originally thought the dance room was exploding. But pretty close, right? I had already left, but apperently the fire alarm went off.
    Then I got home, and bragged to my sisters that I was done school, and announced how bored I was!
    Etcetera.
    I'm tired...G'night!
    Wow, this is the longest post by me EVER!

    DON'T BE ALARMED!

    You are not at the wrong blog! I just changed the layout! xD
    What do you think? Anything you want changed or added or taken away? :P

    Urg... i am so lame -_-

    I don't have an ipod so I recorded one song I really like onto my phone. My phone doesn't even have radio -_-
    Bleh!!!!!!!!! XP The sound quality is HORRIBLE and I had to record the song in 4 sections because it is 3 min 48 sec. long and my phone only records in minute long sections... gah!!!!!!!!! X-(
    I tried getting my dad to teach me how to download songs onto the ipod shuffle my mom got for free... the one with no screen -_- He says "after finals". gees. I'll forget by then.... I want an ipod touch. before I kept saying how I wouldn't mind just having one with apps and nothing else, but I really really reeeeaaaaaaaaaallllyyyyyyy want to take music with me to listen where-ever.... :( change my mind... I'll take a normal ipod nano thingy.... that will work well too.... just for music.

    You know, I've never had the desperate urge to get an ipod for music, but I am now. I blame Adam Lambert. Darn him and his epic songs XP
    Just kidding, he's great, but I don't want to have to listen to music in front of the computer all day. It sucks.
    You know what? I'm just going to use up some more of your time by typing in lyrics (ok, fine, copy and pasting in lyrics) (FINE! if you don't want to read it, skip the blue section):

    So I got my boots on, got the right 'mount of leather
    And I'm doing me up with a black color liner
    And I'm workin' my strut but I know it don't matter
    All we need in this world is some love
    There's a thin line 'tween the dark side and the light side baby tonight
    It's a struggle gotta rumble trying to find it

    But if I had you, that would be the only thing that i would ever need
    Yeah if I had you, then money fame and fortune never could compete
    If I had you, life would be a party it'd be ecstasy
    If I had you
    You you you you you
    If I had you

    From New York to LA getting high rock n' rollin
    Get a room trash it up 'til it's ten in the morning
    Girls in stripper heels, boys rolling in Maseratis
    What they need in this world is some love
    It's a fair line between a wild time and a flat line baby tonight
    It's a struggle gotta rumble tryin' to find it ........

    That's not all of it, there's more, you should all listen to this song! It is so upbeat and energizing... And so I'm not plagiarizing, I GOT THE LYRICS FROM THIS WEBSITE: (DO NOT VISIT IT BECAUSE THERE IS NO POINT, I'M JUST SAYING....)

    http://www.metrolyrics.com/if-i-had-you-lyrics-adam-lambert.html

    OH, and go listen to the song at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyXNOLzbSgo

    On a different note, I am going to see "Karate Kid" next Friday after the finals with Vivian, my friend who wrote the "Chinese Dynasties" song!!!! Fun! :D

    I killed a bug with glass cleaner.
    We got our yearbooks -well, our school calls them annuals- and the last day of school was signing frenzy.
    Finals suck. I mean, 5 courses?!?!? Come on!!!!!!! AND EVERYTHING'S MULTIPLE CHOICE. No, you probably think "hey, that's good" BUT DO NOT BE FOOLED. Every test I get, I score 90% and above for big written paragraph things, it is the multiple choice things that BRING MY MARK DOWN. Hey Harvard, I hope you do not expect epic multiple choice skills from your appliers.... :(

    I'm trying to get off Facebook. Like, check up on it once every two days and stay away from the addicting apps... it's working so far because of finals... but I hope I can continue during summer...

    I AM TAKING SUMMER SCHOOL. MORE EVIDENCE OF HOW LAME I AM. GRRR.... There are some fun courses, but 'summer school' in general just sounds drab.

    Uh oh...

    Ok,  here's what happened:
    1. I am minding my own business, searching up a picture for a French project on Google
    2. Something caused the window to close, and instead one of those small box things that appear when there's an error comes up.
    3. It tells me that "my computer has a virus" and "it's major" and I should "protect myself by shutting down the computer".
    4. The box urges my to click "OK" at the bottom to "continue shut down process"
    5. I panic
    6. I ALMOST press "ok", but I notice something: the message was from a random WEBSITE. Not a virus protection system in my computer!
    7. I click the "X" thing to close the annoying box
    8. It did not just disappear!
    9. Another random window popped out. It was "checking my computer for viruses". It had a very convincing layout, and there was a loading bar at one side saying the "proccess of ridding the virus"
    10. I get reeeally confused
    11. Then I see that it is not a computer system thing, it is A WEBSITE.
    12. I look for the "X" that would close the annoying window
    13. The "X" was smartly hidden over the side of the screen, so I had to drag the window over to close it
    14. I managed to close it just as the loading bar said everything was "72% complete"
    This has happened two times now, and I have no clue what is going on. Has this ever happened to you?

    "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, just keep swimming "

    <3>
    Our complex pool has FINNALLY opened!!
    Yeah, so what if its freezing cold and the water heater is broken, and you cant feel your feet anymore but somehow you still know they are freezing, and so what if its raining, the sun hasent appeared for days or that the wind is blowing hard enough to knock you over. it was fun.
    And as my gym teacher says every time we have to run laps in the freezing cold, rain and wind : it builds character.
    Today I built some more chacacter.
    And Im proud, :)

    Alright, so Im over exagerating, just a bit. It really wasnt that bad, but I needed something to post about cus its not like any of YOU are posting about ANYTHING, and Im doing this out of the goodness of friendship, for Amy. cus shes bored and needs posts to read, aint that right Yma?
    Yes it is. :)
    Hehe, we are renovating our basement, as I THINK Ive told you all about before in my last post, but if I didnt then we are renovating our basement, and I just told you. :P haha. okay so weve pulled everything out of the room [including furnature and 35 year old crapet, oh whoops, I just typed crapet, I meant carpet, but truthfull it was "crap"et. xD ] and so we are paining three walls white or off-white, and the other wall is gonna be orange. Bright orange. as kinda an accent wall, and its looking great, cus my mom and I just painted the first coat or orange and let me tell you Im not lying when I say its BRIGHT. But its looking great, :D

    I vaccuumed my room today, dunno WHY you needed to know that but Im running low on blogging ideas. . . . . . . . .

    Im gonna let you all know about my huge summer project later on when we get closer to the end of school, just cus then I will have more exact details and Im garenteed a topic to blog about in about three weeks, :) dont get too excited, its not much speacial, but its kinda ambitious,

    Anyway, random question but I want whoever is reading this post right now to answer all of these questions:

    First: What colour is your bedroom walls?
    Second: What is your favorite color combination [dont say the rainbow, maximum colors of 4 in one combo, and you can multiple combo's if you like] ?
    Third: Do you have anything hanging up on your bedroom walls right now? what is it?

    And thats it. Please answer, :) p.s. Dont even bother asking why Im asking you this, cus I just am. xD

    Oh gosh Im so happy that we have Monday off of school !!!!!!!
    Cus if we didnt then I would be cramming my head for a test right about now,
    OH which reminds me that I have to tell you this story of what happened to me Friday, even though its kinda sad on my part,
    Okay so I had science last blockon Friday, and we had a test, now keep in mind that I didnt get a whole lot of sleep the night before and so I was exhausted when the last block of the day came around, and so I get to science, but once we get their, our teacher grabs her coat and runs out the door, and Mr.Price comes in [for those of you who HAVE heard of him, hes a creep, and I learned that last week] anyway, so hes yelling at people the whole time we are their he was telling people that they will "have all long weekend to bore their eyes into the screens of their Ipods" and whatever, and when he wasnt doing that, he was making stupid faces at the computer, so he finally GAVE us our test, and I was so exhausted I almost fell aleep numerous times during that test, and at the end of the block, I looked throughmy test, and somehow I got it done, though I dont even remember writting it cus I was soooo tired, and so yeah, I prob failed, or wrote my science test on some other subject like English or something. anyway, I didnt bother checking it over and just handed it in. sad story huh? wouldnt that be funny if I wrote my science exam on the native fur trade? or maybe the french revolution? or maybe a midsummer nights dream? ..... oh god! Im skrewed.

    So anyway, Il close off this very long post on our wonderful blog, Im going to leave you in the great words of one very wise fish:
    "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, Just keep swimming"

    for those of you out there who have never witnessed the greatness of this song, that one wise fish was Dory from Finding Nemo, :)

    --Ill post again soon, but I want everyone else to chip in every now and then too!!!!!!

    PS- I just wanna really quickly, point out that I was TOTALLY right about LeeDewyze on American Idol, Hes awesome, and I love his voice and OMG Im gonna buy his CD when it comes out!! He might or might now win, but right now it doesnt really matter cus both he and Crystal Bowersocks both deserve the title, and the runner up usually is more famous anyway, so my point is it doesnt matter from this point on, OKAY bye for REALLLLLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!!!!

    Hmmm This is a really long post.
    Sorry about that. . . . . . . . .
