Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night!
I am obsessed with Mamma Mia. And It's a Wonderful Life.
Eeeee DCLs tomorrow! I just watched Chapter 19 of Wizard People, Dear Reader for inspiration =) goooood stuff.
Hart had his surgery a week ago and apparently he's fine but we haven't heard anything from him...I'm really bummed he's not going to be there tomorrow, but I'm still getting pumped anyway.
Cross your fingers for me!
Oh and right after the meet I'm leaving for Williamstown to visit my sissy for the weekend! Yay!
So I haven't really been updating lately because school, my presidency class, cross country, watching Jean-Baptiste Maunier videos on YouTube, Nora's broken leg, and my other homework all kind of run my life at the moment. But I love it (well, besides Nora's leg and the non-presidency related homework).
And Hannah, where were you today? Skippin'?
EVERYONE LISTEN TO JEAN-BAPTISTE MAUNIER BECAUSE HE'S SO FREAKING GOOD:
Oh and I'm getting a new desk chair sometime this weekend! One that actually has a back and will halt my development of scoliosis! Hooray!
I am officially done with driver's ed! It was soo annoying to have to go to CCHS and sit in the little theatre for six hours watching terrible movies, but now I will never have to do it again! Unless I lose my license...which hopefully won't happen!
Now I wish that I could say that I'm done with annoying, time consuming activities for the rest of the summer, but unfortunately I have SAT "boot camp" next week from 9 to 4 every day. No idea how I'm going to survive that! And then the week after that I have cross country practice every morning (I'll have to miss the first few because of boot camp), and then school starts the week after that. Life is jolly good.
Oh well, at least I have this weekend to relax and keep watching the Olympics (CONGRATS NASTIA AND SHAWN! AAAAND RYAN LOCHTE! and Michael Phelps of course). I never really paid much attention to them before, but now I'm obsessed with them to the point where I stay up until 1 for two nights in a row to watch them! I wish I had time to watch the events broadcasted earlier in the day (I only really get to watch swimming, gymnastics, beach volleyball, and little bits of cycling and some of the games), but alas, God does not like it better that way.
Speaking of God, I need to catch up with Secret Life of the American Teenager! I watched the fourth episode yesterday (hence the God transition) and it's so addictive! Thank you very muchly to Irene for introducing me to it =)
JUNIOR YEAR STARTS IN EXACTLY ONE MONTH. Ewwwwww! I kind of want to get my schedule so that I can stare at it and color it in with highlighters, even though it will probably be wrong.
I ran 35 miles this week and the week before, and this week I am aiming for 40. My right hip's aches are starting to reach danger point, buttt I'm just going to pretend that it's fine. Today I did those fun leg swings and it felt really good. Aaand I can actually feel myself getting faster!
My parents are on vacation without us for a few days, so one of our old babysitters is staying with us, which means we actually get to do fun things. So tonight we are seeing WALL-E, which I've heard is really good! Hooray! I just wish my dad would be back so he could keep giving me driving lessons, because I have recently graduated from the CCHS parking lot to THE OPEN ROAD! Woo and hoo!
Yesterday I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for the first time since last summer. That book is like a Horcrux, it totally depressed and exhausted me and yet I had to keep reading because it basically consumed my brain/heart/soul/whatever. And now I totally understand it again! I'ma go reread my favorite parts.
I left my cell phone in Vermont =(
Okay, I'm actually updating for real now!
Explo was sooooo much fun. I got to live at Yale, which was pretty sweet even if the squirrels were crazy and the dorms didn't have air conditioning, take classes on Sports Psychology (very helpful) and Improv (very entertaining), meet all of these awesome people from alll over the world (I can now say that I have friends from Sweden, China, Switzerland, France, Thailand, Australia, and Idaho, as well as the ten billion Jewish New Yorkers), and actually experience living away from home, which I loved. Now I can't wait for college! Speaking of colleges, I toured six of them, plus I went to NYC and saw Phantom of the Opera and Grease, and I went to DC for the first time! Woohoo!
I have been home since Saturday and have not done much besides try training for cross country (but failing because of the stupid rain) and rediscover how obnoxious my lovely family is. Isn't that just great? I did, however, finally put my old computer out of its misery, and I am now using Jane's old laptop! Which is perfect, because it currently has no deadly viruses, a working Microsoft Word that I can print papers from, and the internet actually functions! The only problem is that it's not allowing me to transfer most of my purchased songs from my iPod to its iTunes library, butttt I'll have to work on fixing it.
Ladeeda...I can't wait for next summer when I'll have my license and will actually be able to go places! I kind of feel like an idiot because I could have had it by now, but I was too lazy. Oh well, c'est la vie.
I'm over and out - hopefully I'll see y'all soon! (notttt so sure whether or not this weekend is going to work Renie =/ )
I AM HOME AGAIN HOME AGAIN JIGGEDY JIG
