Oh yeah that blog thing.

Oh hey there blog. What? No I most certainly did not forget about you! I just...had other things to do...Yeah okay I kinda forgot. I'M SORRY OKAY.

Blah blah blah sorry I haven't blogged blah blah blah you get the idea.

Okay. Serious time.

So I've been in school for a couple weeks now and I already have that big cloud of stress wavering over my head. And this damn little could has got me thinking. Why does school always seems to strike up the most ungodly amounts of stress as soon as the first day of school starts? And then I realized: School is taken so much more seriously as soon as you reach 9th grade, the OFFICIAL start of high school. The moment you begin high school, teachers and even students constantly have the thought of getting prepared for college on their minds. Everything starts going down on transcripts, everything counts towards the future years of school.
And this bothers me.

I wish I could have clung onto those childhood school days longer, when your main objective was being the best at coloring or being able to climb on top of the monkey-bars. Looking back, I took the days of my youth for granted it seems. Back then, I was so eager to grow up and do "big kid things." now, I don't even want to think about tomorrow.

Yes, the future is full of bright, new possibilities, however it is also filled with dark and frightening paths and outcomes. Those paths are what I'm most scared of. However, so quote the great Albus Dumbledore, "Someday we must all face the choice between what is right, and what is easy." As much as I yearn to take the easy route, I know where the positive outcomes will come from.  Yes, it will be stressful and hard, but hopeful lit will be where I find happiness in the end.

(sorry this is so jumpy and such, i just wanted to get this out there.)

Until next time,

Ohhey it's September.

So BEDA kind of fell apart for me near the end due to the craziness that is my life. But like I said, I will try to keep this blog updated as much as I can.

And so with that...

Guys. Today is September 1st. Today, witches and wizards from all over experienced their first day of term at Hogwarts. And my letter still hasn't come. Granted, I am 14 now, but I have never given up hope. I mean, I understand it's a long journey for one little owl to take, but I feel like since I live so far away they could just appararte to me and give me my letter, or send a hippogriff to bring it or something. Because seriously, 3 years late is just a little too much. And even if the situation is distance, why can't they just create a school of magic here in America! They can't just make me live in the muggle world forever, right?! Of course not! Right....?

Anyway I'm really just writing this to procrastinate more instead of planning more for my English presentation that I'm giving tomorrow. After one of the presentations today, I looked at the clock and saw it was 11:05. I looked at my fellow Harry Potter friend and said, "The train leaves at exactly 11 o'clock, we've missed it!" in my best british accent. She started laughing to hard, it was so funny.

Anyway, I should really go do work now. So thanks for reading my pointless blog for today.

Until next time,

So I kinda failed...

The title really says it all.

Between school just starting, soccer after school and marching band, I'm having a hard time finding anytime at all to blog. So sorry guys. I'm just going to try to do what I can from here on out.

So let's talk about my first day of school, which was 2 days ago but oh well.

My first day of freshman year went surprisingly well! Although I had to see the many IRL people I detest oh so very much, I did get to see my friends who I haven't seen in a while, which was fun. After I talked to people I went to my homeroom to get all my paperwork to take home and get my locker assignment. After sitting through boring old homeroom and hearing the same first day lectures and such the announced to us that there would be a new bell system used this year. Not the normal "BRRRRRIIIIIINNNGGGG!!!!" bell, but the most quiet and annoying bell ever. It sounds like the noise an airplane makes when the captain-pilot dude turns on and off the seat belt symbol. It's pretty annoying.

So after the new annoying bell introduction I headed off the my classes. 1st period was Spanish 2 and all I can say is that my teacher has WAY to high of expectations for us. I had to memorize vocab on the 1st night and already have a quiz tomorrow on that vocab. Vocab we never even LOOKED AT before yesterday. And he is kinda strange. But that's a whole other story.

Anyway, after that I went to my Math 2 class in which I found out I am one of two freshman in my class and the other girl I don't really talk to. Needless to say Math is not going to be too fun this year. Not that math is ever really fun, but that's just my opinion. I really dislike math.  At least my teacher is pretty chill, so that makes things better.

After a boring math class full of standard introduction crap, I set off of the horribly long walk to the Science Wing for Honors Physical Science. Since we can no longer walk outside to get to the other side of the building, the hallways are PACKED and are nearly impossible to walk quickly through, so I have to basically run to get to class on time. It's not too bad though, since it will be a fun class with a good teacher, even if the class will be a bit of a challenge.

Once Physical Science ended I made the long walk back to the other side of the building for Honors English (which is really like intro to lit/comp or whatever but we all just call it English.) I was a little nervous about this class since I heard some bad things about the teacher, but she turned out to be really nice (for now)! We played those "get to know each other" games and just had fun. And I found out I don't have my summer reading test till Tuesday! PRAISE THE ENGLISH GODS! (I haven't finished the book yet....OOPS!) Anyway I'm looking forward to English this year, mainly because I just love the subject so much though.

After English I have an earlier lunch than the rest of my grade because I am taking Jazz Band instead of study hall opposite my lunch. So I went to Jazz Band, sat around and talked to people and then went to lunch where I ate with fellow Jazz members.

Then it was time for the one class I was looking forward to most, DMP 1, or Digital Media Production 1. The class is basically learning all kinds of different techniques to video making and just make all sorts of fun videos. It's gonna be awesome. Even better, it has one of my favorite teachers EVER and there are only like 18 kids in the class. Needless to say, I am pretty freaking stoked for this class. Plus, the room has nine Macs to use. NINE. And they are awesome. So so awesome.

Once my class of awesome ended I went to Honors U.S. History, which I knew wouldn't be too bad since nearly all of my friends are in it. And my teacher seems really nice, although she can be kind of boring and can sometimes resemble a much less weird/creepy version of Professor Trelawney, I think a good class will make up for that.  Plus, I really enjoy history, I think it's fascinating. The way everything pieces together like one giant jigsaw puzzle, each piece holding its own tragedies, stories, and new beginnings.  It's so amazing to me.

Then last but not least was 8th period band. Oh band. Well since we had already had a week of band camp and 3 days until our 1st performance, we got right out onto the field, our director out on his microphone and we got straight to work on pregame and halftime sets. Pregame is boring, but for halftime we are playing Let's Get It Started and I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas and Glamorous by Fergie. It's pretty fun actually. The sets aren't to difficult and during Glamorous or section has choreographed a mini dance to do on the field, which should be pretty fun. Although band is lots of hard, annoying work and getting yelled at my our director, it is fun.

Well there you have it, my first day if high school in one blog post. I hope this kinda sorta made up for me missing so many days. SORRY! I still love you though if that counts for anything.

Until next time,

Back to School Already?

Hello blog readers!

So, this coming Wednesday is my official first day of high school. And I'm not excited. At all. I really don't like school. I don't like many people in my grade, I hate the pressure of always trying to do the best in everything even though I'm far from perfect and I don't like getting up early. Basically everything about school just plain sucks. Now do you see why I'm not excited to go back?

I went school supplies shopping today just to get the essentials before I got my actual list on the 1st day, and I couldn't help but cringe while picking out notebooks and binders. The thought of going back to school just makes me sick. And I know things are going to change a TON this year. The only plus? I get to make awesome binder collages of Harry Potter pictures and other stuff that makes me happy even on shitty days. This is how I keep myself motivated. I know. I'm a total nerd. BUT THAT IS A-OKAY WITH ME.

Sorry for wasting your time with a pointless blog, but I am NOT excited for school and needed to get my feelings out. So yes.

Until Tomorrow,

Bloggin' it up with Izzy

Hello! I'm Izzy and I have the pleasure of being a friend of Laney's. She has asked me to fill in for her today, I don't know why because I am not a blogger my any means, but I'll just roll with it, eh?

You know those "My Purse" videos where someone pulls all of their shit out of their bags and shows everything in them? Yeah? Okay, well I'm going to do that with my wallet because I realized how much shit I have in it that isn't money.

- 4 American dollars
-1 Canadian dollar
- a mint wrapper
- a red guitar pick (I don't play guitar...)
-6 quarters
-2 nickels
-5 dimes
-1 tooney (the equivalent of 2 Canadian dollars)
-1 looney (1 Canadian dollar)
-55 pennies (guys! I'm fucking rich.)
-2 hair pins
- 1 pack of small yellow post-its
-2 pencils
-1 pen (black ink. Yeah, I checked that for you)
- 1 "My name is..." sticker from The Unlimited Enthusiasm Expo wrock show at the Grog Shop in August '08
- a piece of paper with the name of someone I met this April so I could look them up on facebook
- 1 Meathead skiing sticker (It's shaped like a slice of steak with skiing goggles and a face on it)
-3 Mike Lombardo stickers
- 6 American Pride stickers (Spacious Skies, Grace, Blue Jeans, The South, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and Automobile)
- 4 Menchie's stickers ( Mookie, Sprinkle, Menchie, and the original face of Menchie with Cece's tumblr url on the back)
- a sticker of a fighter jet (my mom gave me it)
- a McDonald's gift card for one free small frie ( I got it at LeakyCon)
- 1 pack of rubber bands for my braces
- plastic wrap from when I opened Laney's Songs for a New Day CD
- receipt from my first Chipotle experience
- a Burger King receipt (cashier was Samantha according to this receipt)
- a receipt from Barnes & Nobles from May (for the book Who Was Harriet Tubman?)
- a receipt from Kennywood for a picture
- a receipt from Universal Citywalk for a chocolate frog and Sirius's wand
-a receipt from Treasure of Bali at the Royal Pacific hotel where I bought a Ben and Jerry Brownie Bar with Johanna

And that is all of the shit I have in my wallet. I'm sure you were all intrigued by that.

Thought: Some things are just doomed to be bad, but they turn out to be awesome. Like Dance Moms. If you haven't seen Dance Moms, it's not too late! The season is only 6 episodes in, so you should easily be able to catch up. These moms are priceless, and same goes for the dance teacher, Abby Lee. GO WATCH NOW.

Another thing that should have been bad by wasn't is this cover of Baby by Julia Nunes . Seriously, just go now. It's absolutely amazing and I haven't be able to stop listening to it on repeat. I'm not a Justin Beiber fan by no means, but this cover has made me love the song. It made the impossible possible.

And that is all for tonight. Thanks to Laney for wanting me to blog for her, and hopefully I didn't lose her any readers.
