This weekend was all about getting ready for the new season. I’ve been working relentlessly over the past 36 hours and I’ve accomplished some pretty big things. I’m cleaning out whole walls and sections of the floor that have been messy for years. Aaaaah. It feels good.
“A cluttered desk is a cluttered mind.”
I agree wholeheartedly.
Happy Friday! Another night sitting around my house. Doing nothing in particular.
Let’s do some catching up!
Daylight Savings time has dawned upon us. Woo! A whole ‘nother hour of daylight? More bike & park time, hanging out with my buddies, etc. I’ve been waiting for this all cold, wet, dark winter long! I didn’t do much this week though, because I’m sick but this weekend will be re – lax – ing!
I’ll be brother-free until Sunday since he’s on a camping trip for the weekend. Tomorrow I will be participating in a 5k I know nothing about and that my mom just told me about an hour ago. It starts at 7:30. In the morning. I might write about it.
Today was the last day of the 3rd quarter in the school year. 45 more school days! I can already feel the tears as I was crying last night about it. Leaving the best 3 years of my life especially since my 4 best best ever friends are all going to different schools. Their not even going to school with each other. I really hope we can stay connected.
We’re not going to get our report cards until April 2nd. After Spring Break which is the week before! It’s probably going to be too cold to go swimming at the beach. Aaaw, man!
I’m reading 3 books, now. Summerland, The Help, and Unwind, which I just started today. Summerland is really thick. It’s like you have digest the pages. The Help is hilarious, of course. Unwind is going to be great because it’s by Neal Shusterman and is already on-the-edge-of-your-seat-on-the-hammock-until-it-breaks thrilling.
Yup. I broke the hammock in the front yard. Just by sitting on it.
Right now I’m chilling out with my new jam, The Heist by Macklemore. You’ve probably heard the song, Thrift Shop, right? People won’t stop singing it at my school. That, Can’t Hold Us, and Same Love are my favorites.
Lately, I have been rocking out to some pretty cool music. One of my recently favorited albums is Allen Stone’s self-titled album. I found out about him while watching Vh1’s You Oughta Know segment on fine Saturday morning while doing my laundry. They broadcasted his most popular song Sleep. It was so catchy I had it stuck in my head all day and then proceeded to look up the rest of his album which presently sits on its’ own playlist on my Sony Walkman.
I would describe his music as soulful, acoustic, and slightly bluesey. A nice break from my rap music fascination that I’ve seemed to have adopted lately. This is a list of the album’s songs, the ones in bold I adore (though I’m still in love with the whole thing!).
2. Celebrate Tonight
3. What I’ve Seen
4. Say So
5. The Wind
7. Contact High
8. Nothing To Prove
9. Your Eyes
Please excuse me if my blog posts are short and/or choppy. My parents have not paid their Cox Cable bill recently because they are trying to find a cheaper internet provider. Right now in order to write these posts I either have to use my mom’s touchscreen phone (bleh!) or have my parents let me use the library computer (fat chance). But they said it should be back on in 2 or3 weeks. So don’t mind if anything looks funny.
The Mayans were wrong!
Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season with lots of joy and good food! I’m so glad to be back to blogging after quite a nlong hiatus. I started to miss it a little bit. Maybe this year will be twice as good as last. WOW! I still can’t believe I actually went through with this. I remember sitting at my computer trying to write my very first blog post thinking, “Where do I even begin?” Thank God for WordPress, though! I never thought it would be this easy to just totally express myself to a very lovely and very creative audience.
Cheers to another year of blogging!
I’ve decided to make my “Books I Want To Read Page”into a “Books I’ve Already Read Page”. I just think this will work out a little bit better than the previous idea. I’m thinking to make a separate page for each year like one for this year and 2013 and so on. Just to categorize it.
How is it? Do you think it’s better than before?
Today, I got up, took a shower and got dressed and was sitting in my living room eating oatmeal. Just as I was putting my bowl in the sink, I remembered I had forgotten to wash my hair. I smelled like a wet dog. Instead of getting back in the shower, which would take forever, I tried to wash my hair in the bathroom sink. It worked, except for when I got my hair stuck down the drain, almost. Once I was done with that dilemma, I hit my head really hard on the faucet. BAM! OW! I ended up with a huge bump on my head. At least I smelled good.
Ugh! I was getting tired of that old theme. It was too gray for me. I really, really like this one though so I think it’s going to be much more permanent. Its called San Kloud and its very clear and I like how the widgets are back on the side of the page.
Just for a short post today since I’ll be busy this afternoon, I want to share with you some interesting music selections from my MP3 Player. I’m currently into alot of Alternative/Punk Rock Music.
I cannot get enough of Walk The Moon and their self-titled album,
My two favorite songs are Anna Sun and Quesadilla.
Secondly, Graffiti6 and their release called Colours
I love his vocal range on the song, Free. It sounds melodious.
Lastly, Grouplove’s Cd/Vinyl/Cassette called Never Trust A Happy Song
Aaaaaaah! Last night I went to the Rave Movie Theatre with my mummy (Halloween Pun!) and we saw the scariest movie ever together. It was The Exorcist-BUM BUM BUM!!! Wow, when you’re in a near-empty theatre, dark as a closed closet, having the scariest film ever produced flash before your eyes, you’re bound to pee your pants. I bet if I hadn’t seen that movie 5 times before, I definitely would’ve because-whew-that was something! My mother and I both agreed that the scariest part of the whole movie was right after they learned the mom’s boyfriend died, the girl came down the stairs like a crab and, like, if your queasy don’t read this next part, but, like, blood started gushing out of her mouth. That was when I screamed so loud in the middle of the movie. It’s scary just to think of it!
This marks the beginning of the Holiday Season! First Halloween, then Thanksgiving and before you know it, people’ll be smooching under the Mistletoe! But, let’s keep it to Halloween for now. I’m going to be watching scary movies like crazy this month! I wanted to give you guys some reccomendations, or, otherwise, my personal favorites. They’re not in any order either, but I will admit, The Exorcist is my all-time favorite right next to The Omen (Either version is good).
1. The Good Son
2. Child’s Play
3. The Possession-I saw this in the theatre a few weeks ago, it was pretty good if you haven’t seen it.
5. Pet Semetary-Spine-Chilling Fun!
6. The Ring
7. Freddy Kruger/Nightmare On Elm Street
8. Silence of the Lambs
9. Evil Dead
10. The Shining
11. 28 Days Later
12. The Sixth Sense-I see dead people!
14. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
16. Ju-on (It’s in Japanese so it has subtitles)
19. Children of the Corn
20. The Birds
21. Rosemary’s Baby
The one movie that I really want to see that I haven’t this season is Paranormal Activity. My parents think it sounds stupid but I’m going to force them to rent it for me from Blockbuster or something!
What are your favorite scary movies of all-time? Are there any I forgot?
Today, in Language Arts, we we’re talking about good grammar skills and the teacher, Mrs. Richmond put up a really interesting example. I just wanted to share that example with you;
Let’s eat Grandpa.
Notice anything peculiar? How about this;
Let’s eat, (COMMA) Grandpa.
It’s amazing what a comma can do to a sentence. I mean, those sentences are two totally different ideas, don’t you think? Can you think of any other cool examples?
