In Which I Entertain You With Stories From My Life

So today, I didn't write a single word. No matter, as tomorrow is a half day! And I write mostly on weekends anyway, so it doesn't matter much. I'll do everything then. Now to interesting things...

I downloaded 19 more Glee songs today, making my current total 99 songs! I totally need another one, just to make it 100. Last night's Glee episode was my favorite from season 2 so far. For one reason: character progression. I feel like this season is too much about the music, which I know the first one was too, but I feel like the writers aren't trying very hard anymore. Also, my love for Katy Perry was refreshed after seeing Teenage Dream performed by Darren Chris. Now I want to watch the Very Potter musicals again.

Also, my choir's first concert is on Wednesday, one week from today. I am NERVOUS! Even though I don't have a solo this time, I am one of the FOUR tenors in the choir, and I have to sing a lot of the tenor parts, sometimes by myself. I've been listening to the other kids who are doing solos, and all of their songs are fantastic. I can't wait to hear them, especially my friend Megan, who is playing Zombie by The Cranberries. And she is no doubt better than the original song, which is very hard to do.

Thirdly, I got my report card for this quarter today. And since my stupid science teacher, who crashed a plane several years ago, gave me a B+. Thank you Senor, thanks to you I have a 3.8338 as my GPA. How am I supposed to get into college with that! My mother wants to get me a tutor, no joke. My other grades were as follows... Algebra: A-, Biology: A, Computer Apps: A, Economics: A, Foods (Cooking): A, Honors English: A, Choir: A-. How awesome is that!

I printed a lot of song lyrics today. They include Zombie by The Cranberries, Teenage Dream by Katy Perry, Baby by Justin Bieber, Firework by Katy Perry (WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO, I LOVE IT!), Keep Holding On by Avril Lavigne, The Past by Nevershoutnever, Animal by Neon Trees, Paparazzi by Lady Gaga, Bad Romance by Lady Gaga, and See You Again by Miley Cyrus. I can't wait to sing them all.

Which brings me to something else. Today, I started singing Teenage Dream, thanks to Darren Chris, and I kinda started a giant singing session of that song. I was so proud.

Wow, I have lots of things to say. This morning, I walked into a room where my seven year old sister was watching the Whip My Hair music video. I was really proud. I should print THOSE lyrics.

One more thing, my strange family is celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. What are we, Canadians? No, that is my other side of the family. I honestly have no idea why we are doing this, but it does mean I get TWO Thanksgivings, which is fine with me.

I lied. THIS is the last thing. My friend Jackie edited my thesis essay for A Raisin in the Sun, and completely destroyed it. Apparently it was REALLY bad. I can't wait for her to give me opinions on my books and such *cringes*. Thanks for being so critical, Jackie.

So, I guess that is all I have to say. I hope I entertained you with this post.

See you tomorrow,

  4. Great job with the grades! I was always disappointed in school when I got a B (even an A-) but really, those grades are fantastic.

    I LOVED this episode of Glee. There were so many moments that shocked me and were so pivotal. I'm thrilled Darren Criss is in talks for becoming a full-time cast member. I really hope we get to see more of him & his group from school singing.

  5. It sounds like music is a huge part of what you do! I haven't gotten into Glee yet, but I've heard it's amazing. :)

    You entertained me here in your post! I'm happy to find your blog! :)
