Oh my goodness!!! I wish I could give this book a million stars!! It was so gripping I literally couldn’t put it down, I read it all in one night! This was SCARY! Not reccomended for younger children or maybe even middle schoolers, like me. It was very, very detailed. But, that makes it great for anyone else looking for an extremely well-written zombie apocalypse thiller. The romance aspect was wonderful as well and gets even better as the book progresses. Can’t wait for the sequel and the movie!
It’s here again! Last Tuesday I went to the All-County Band Tryouts for clarinets, flutes, and saxophones.It started at 5:30 and ended at like 9:00 for some people. The earlier you got there and got your little numbered ticket, the earlier you could get it over with and leave. So, I got to sit at a little table with all of my buddies for three hours, goofing off and being nervous out of our wits as the numbers got closer and closer. I didn’t really care whether I made it in or not. I only went because it was required and a grade. But,
I MADE IT IN!!!
Woo! That was totally unexpected! I do have to admit, though, I felt as cool as a cucumber when I got into the room to play my scales and I felt even better when I went to do the sightreading! But, WOW!
Hopefully, I’ll get more information about it after Fall break, because, I don’t even know when the first practice is!
I’m going to be taking a few holiday breaks from blogging. Like, I just got back from my big Thanksgiving Break and soon I’ll be going on a Christmas Break. Just to let yous know.
While we’re on the subject, Happy (late) Thanksgiving! My holiday was nothing spactacular, but it was still fun! Unlike the rest of the country who had a week off of school, I had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off along with the weekend. Boy, have I been looking forward to that! It was lovely not having to get up and just being able to enjoy this nice weather and go to a park and not worry about if I’m going to get my homework done!
During the day, all everybody was doing was cooking and preparing for the feast that awaited us. Also, me and my brother decorated with hand and feet turkeys. I’m sure everyone’s seen a hand turkey, but feet ones are pretty weird looking.
For Thanksgiving dinner, we had three times as much stuffing as we thought would come out, potatoes my brother made all by himself, canned cranberry sauce, my mother’s coleslaw with an entire jar of mayonnaise (60 servings? More like 10!), my secret recipe candied sweet potatoes with a super-sweet sauce, and a big, fat scrumptious turkey that had spent the night brining so it would be nice and juicy and plump the next day.
