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?
Here’s all of the pretty good things that have happened this past week!
Monday: I got to go to the library! I had some really overdue books I finally returned, paid my $3.60 in dues (That’s a ton!), and checked out two new books: Zombies vs. Unicorns & Tyrell. I also got a Norah Jones cd, Come Away With Me.
Tuesday: I got a 102 on my Algebra test!
Wednesday: Hallow’s Eve! I got a bucketfull of candy! I think I got more Butterfingers than anything if you don’t count lollipops.
Thursday: This day pretty much sucked.
Friday: I had to stay after school again for band practice, but-I passed my scales!!! Barely! I did all 6 of the scales in 1:37 out of the two minutes you get to do them. This is what the Band director said to me,
Band Director: Well, congradulations you passed your scales and your chromatic scale. Your tongueing is very sharp. I read that this can be caused by not having a strong enough reed. I think that we might need to move you up to a Level 4 reed from the Level 3’s.
Me: I’m already using the 4’s.
Band Director: *stunned* Wow. Maybe you should try a 4 1/2, then.
Me: *also now stunned* Ok, Thank you.
Band Director: Thank You!
Four-and-a-half! Oh My Goodness!!!! Level 3 1/2 is what most people in my level use. I just went for the fours last Christmas to see how they worked. By now I’ve gotten use to using them, but WOW! I only know 2 other people that use fours in my level and they’re really, really good. But, 4 1/2 !?! I don’t know anyone who’s ever even tried those before! I’m really, really, super-duper excited!!!

I just thought of something funny a kid in my Language Arts class said yesterday. My teacher was laying down the law for the new nine weeks, so she was talking about how we should take our reading logs seriously. I don’t find reading to be a problem because I love it so much, but some kids can’t stand it! Right after the teacher talked about what counts as “reading”, one of the guys raised his hand and asked,
“If we’re watching a movie and turn on the subtitles and read those, can we put that down on our reading logs?”
The whole class busted out laughing because this teacher likes to be super-serious. She hardly ever laughs during class. When he said that, her face turned as purple as an eggplant, she was so mad! That just made it even funnier.
