Rushed Tuesday Edition

Oh my. It's been nearly a month since I blogged here o__o did that happen!?

Well, lately I've been busy studying for all my AP tests and the normal omg-I'm-graduating-holy-frickity-frack business that comes along with the end of senior year. Prom is next week! I'm looking forward to it, but I've yet to buy a dress. Heh. I'm like the only one among my friends who hasn't.

Uhm, anyway. I'M SO SORRY for not posting ): This shall be fixed!

See you next week!

First post in a week?

This is looking bad. Oh dear.

Want to know what else is bad?
I was just logging on for a brief moment to say that i needed to study and couldn't post.

Perhaps we should start just blogging when we have something to say? Good plan? Email me?

I'm starting this blog on Sunday! That's how badly I feel about these past few weeks.
I am 100% home now though. I think.
Anyway, this week's post is going to be about university. This may sound a bit odd coming from a sophomore, but it's something i think about on occasion. This week is definitely one of those times. Recently, I visited Toronto to chill with some cousins (50 or 60 of them), and to see the city and surrounding area(s). One of the best parts of the trip was seeing UofToronto. I'm pretty sure it was perfect. There's a castle for christsake. The whole thing looks like it could be taken out of Harry Potter. Maybe on a smaller scale, but close. Whatever the case, it was pretty cool.
I hate to say it, but i'm excited for Uni. There's this draw to it that i think every teenager feels. The idea of spending all your time learning the things you love with intelligent people who share your interests and living on your own and answering to nothing. Pretty idyllic. What teenager wouldn't want that.

So that's what i've been thinking about.

Also, i've been thinking about some poetry. Specifically, ones by a woman named Sarah Kay.

The video is at Bowery Poetry Club, where Sarah got her start. She's quite brilliant, and her poetry makes me think. Especially this one. It says so much about the bonds between siblings.

I think that's it for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Echo... echo... echo...

Hello? (hello... hello... hello...)

It seems like nobody is here. *looks around* Well, that's strange. I suppose... everyone's out and about having lives.

I've been doing BEDA this month on my personal blog. I considered VEDA, but I thought I'd be too busy to film and edit a video everyday for a month '~' Especially since I've got to work on a number of videos for contests. (Like this one, for Robyn Schneider's Knightley Academy series.)

Today's pretty exciting for me, the bookworm, because two of my favorite series are releasing books today. City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. I just got an email saying that they shipped. At minimum it'll take 3 days to get here, but I don't have such faith in the postal service...

If you've been lurking around Twitterverse, or the youtubes, I'm sure you've taken notice at the sheer amount of Nerdfighters who are candidates for the NextUp program!? I've been really excited for everyone and voting everyday for so many! I'd list all of them... but there really are a lot of candidates, haha.

Here's wishing they do well!

Short post.

Hey guys. I'm sorry I've been so out of it these past couple of months. I meant to post an actual post today, but I ran into some family troubles. Again, sorry! I'll see you guys next week.

Just another Magic Monday

Last week I was in Hawaii on Monday. It was a band trip. While people were wondering where my post was, I was conveniently far away from cyberspace, chillin with some very nice people from my country, and several from Australia.
The thing about Americans is that we love to misrepresent ourselves. Individually, most of us are pretty average. We're not actually fat. Most of us don't eat at MickeyD's for dinner every night. In fact, I would be willing to guess that most Californians (at least the ones in Hawaii with me) eat much more tofu than McDonalds. Just saying.
However, when you get several hundred of us together, there tends to be a certain group dynamic. People are loud, and possibly a little outspoken.
Nonetheless, all of our group members seemed to make friends with people from other places, which was lovely to see. Now we're all desperate to take a trip to Australia.

A new love! (well, several, but this is the big one)
Pole Vaulting.
It rocks. It's been so long since I played any sort of sport that I forgot how nice being fit is. Also, vaulting itself is awesome. It's something I can tangibly improve upon. generally, improvements come more slowly than I like. But with this I can always see my improvements. More than that, I can feel them. I know I've done well when I have, and there's no uncertainty like there is with school work.

Matters of Business:
1. Everybody should vote for Will Grayson Will Grayson for that award thing. Hm. That was supposed to sound a lot better.
2. Maybe we should all communicate a little more outside of the posts...Maybe.

That's it for now, folks. Enjoy your week!

Oh...And next monday I'll be in Canada. I don't think there'll be a post. Sorry!!!!!!!!
