Just venting

I have been wanting to vent about this for a long time to somebody and I decided my computer is the only place that I can really let it all out on. There are some really rather rude people at our high school and it's really starting to make me mad lately that some people have to think that everything revolves around them and has to do with them. They have to get into everyones business and make fun of things that everyone does. It's really not very cool and people really don't like it. They just need to get back to their own lives and mind their own business. Other peoples decisions do not affect you and you don't have to obsess over drama. Now that I feel a little better, I would just like to say that I love my friends. Even though I may be a total *&#^$ sometimes to them, I need them in my life and they're the greatest. I don't know how people say that they can go their high school life without girl friends. Who are you going to go to the mall with and talk to about your problems and get your nails done with? Guys are definately not going to want to do that with you. They only wanna be "chill" with their friends and act like their cool. Don't get me wrong, guys are fun to hang out with, but not to do girly things, they hate that.

Sometimes people need to move forward with their lives and forget some of the past. The things that you have done before will always be with you and they wont go away, but you can forget about them. I know several people who have made mistakes in their lives, including myself, but we have to move forward and forget about things that we don't like.

As I'm sitting here drinking my daily morning orange juice, I'm thinking about how I can make my life better for the people around me and myself. I know I may not always be the best friend or the best girlfriend or the best daughter, but I can try to be the best I can be and try to make everyone happy.

Here is a funny video now that everyone can enjoy!

That's all for now my fellow bloggers.

Sooooo I just got back from chiii town and I was totally and completely blown away by the Blue Man Group. It was totally awesome. The show was really funny yet cool at the same time. These blue guys made music using many different items and made it look cool. They played the drums with different colored paints on them, they played tubes and when you moved the tube, it made a lower or higher sound, and they had a backup band that would add in at times to make the fun even better. There was one part where they had a screen and an announcer telling the audience how to "rock out" at a concert. It made the entire audience head bob, fist pump, throw their hands in the air, and scream super loud. The blue men couldn't talk and acted like they didn't really know any common sense, which made it pretty funny. They also had volunteers from the audience which they picked, so I'm not quite sure if they were planned or not. At the very end, they went and pulled toilet paper across the entire audience while they went back up on stage and jammed out. It was really fun and everyone was freaking out. They had this little camera that they would bring around the crowd and put it in people's faces and show them on the big screen. The people sitting in the front rows were given poncho's to wear if they wanted to because the guys would throw paint around and shoot things out of their shirts.

Here is a video of a different Blue Man Group show but they did basically the same thing!

I would love to go back again to another one someday with a bigger audience and see how they respond because I'm sure that with an audience of showchoir people, there was a lot more cheering and freaking out than usual. Also, I would like to see if they do the same things or if things are a little different than what we saw.

That's all for now my fellow bloggers!

I wish this would last forever

So I'm sitting here on my couch watching The Price is Right and it is 10 am. I just woke up and I can't wait to see what today brings. Spring break is reminding me of summer a whole lot and I wish that is was summer already. But we don't get out of school until June 15th now I just learned. That's almost a whole month after when we were originally supposed to get out of stupid school. Its because of all those snow days that we had this winter, but I guess they were enjoyed while we had them. I just wish they would make them up throughout the rest of the school year on the days when we're suppose to have no school that is scheduled. In the summer time you can wake up whenever you want and usually people have later curfew's. You don't have to worry about doing homework whereas right now I'm debating on how to start my research paper and I have worksheets that are due the next week we get back. I would rather just sit here on the computer and not do any work.

I did discover this website though that totally made me cry when I was reading it. It's called and it gives real stories about people who love each other and do cute things for one another. Some of them are about old people who have lost their loved ones but still show their love for them in some way. I was reading these and I totally cried my eyes out. I'm such a sucker for romance. I could seriously sit on that website all day and read the entries that people have written.

But I guess for now I will start on some of my homework that is due next week.

That's all for now my fellow bloggers.

Spring break is in 2 days! Finally! I'm so ready to have a break from school and just be able to relax and have fun with my friends. I'm also excited that our show choir is going to Chicago at the end of spring break to compete against some of the best groups in the country. We're kind of nervous but everyone is excited and eager to get out there and do our show. We're going to get a lot of free time on Thursday when we arrive to go shopping for things that we want and then we get a chance to go and see the Blue Man Group and go out to eat with our friends. On Friday we compete with our choirs against the other choirs that are there. 2 of our choirs are going to this competition. Our top choir and our second choir are both going to compete. Then at night we're going to a night club called Excalibur where we're going to have a dance party and play games of pool and such. Then Saturday is the big day of show choir. Our prep group is competing in the morning and then it's our turn to get ready and perform our hearts out. We're hoping to make finals but this time we don't know for sure if we will because there are so many other groups that are fantastic. We just want to do our best and be satisfied with our show no matter what the placement is. On Sunday we will head back home and get ready for some more school....but we don't have to talk about that right now because I'm too excited that we're not going to have school in two days! The temperature has been getting warmer the last couple days and it's reminding me of summer and I really wish that it was here right now!

Secret places?

So I'm sitting here in the computer lab trying to think what to blog about and I look up and see this little door above me that obviously leads out into the foyer underneath the stairs. But it got me thinking about the other little secret spots thruoghout the school that the students don't know about. There could be hundreds of little spots that lead to places we have been to or places that we didn't even know exsisted. Teachers probably know about these places and probably go to them when they need a break from students. But what about the kids? Where do we go when we need a break from teachers or other students who are bothering us? I seriously would like to know about these little hiding spots, if they even exsist. It's really bothering me now.

This topic reminds me of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe when the children find a secret closet that goes into Narnia, but it only works sometimes. Sometimes I think about going into these doors along the side of the hallway that nobody ever sees anyone going into, and seeing if there is a secret little hideout spot for someone to be.

I know there are a lot of places around this school in where some students have never been, but I have. Like inside the kitchen, in the green rooms, the teachers lounge, and others. It's kinda weird being in these unfamiliar areas where mainly teacher are supposed to be, but it's kinda fun as well. When we had the Protege lockin last year, we got to be in the school when all of the lights were off and we walked around the hallways and by the classrooms. It actually got pretty scary and now it makes me wonder if those secret places are actually really scary. I'm gonna stop before I start sounding like a total maniac though.

That's all for now my fellow bloggers.

Washington, I obsess over you.

JAI HO! Washington's show choir does this song and ever since two weekends ago when we hosted our own showchoir and got to watch them perform, this song has been stuck in my head every single day. They won our competition over one of the top groups in the nation and usually, they aren't that good. But this year their show consists of some good songs and they perform it really well. I just don't know why this song has been stuck in my head for so long. Why do songs get stuck in your head even if they aren't the most appealing? Even this song, I don't know any other words except jai ho.

Here is the video on youtube of them doing this song. I've probably watched this video ten times and I want to see them perform again because they put so much effort and emotion into it. Their ballad this year is also really cool to watch and listen to. At our competition the guy singing the solo won best soloist and he is really amazing.

They also do a Michael Jacson mix which is pretty cool as well. The guy in the middle at the beginning kinda dancing around like Michael did was really neat and totally got my attention. I was a judges assistant for the finals and so I got to see it from the perspective of the judges and hear what they were saying about the rest of the groups. It was pretty funny to hear some of the things they have to say. It totally made me wonder what they say about us when we perform.

And if you wanted to watch our show it's definately on Youtube as well but you can look it up yourself:)

That's all for now my fellow bloggers!

Disney part 2

So I blogged about going to Disney World with dance team and I explained about how we competed there. But the post would have been way to long if I would have kept going and explained the whole next day. 5 of my friends and I all got to go around the Disney parks and do pretty much whatever we wanted

We were the first ones on the dance team to wake up that morning. We were up at 645 walking down to breakfast in the fresh Florida air. At 8 we took the Disney shuttle bus to the Animal Kingdom where we wanted to ride one ride and then move onto our next park. We arrived at the park and started walking toward our destination taking dozens of pictures along the way. We got in line for the ride and just as we stepped into the seats and put our seatbelts on, we were told to get back off because there was a problem with the ride. We waited for about twenty minutes for them to fix the ride because we were literally the next people in line, but they didn't fix it and made everyone exit. We were pretty upset but we went on a little kiddy ride and it kinda made up for it. We went back out the entrance to the park and went on to our next park, MGM Studios.

This park is all about the shows and music of Disney and we had already been here for a little bit to compete on Saturday, but we wanted to ride the big rides of the park. We went to the Rockin' Rollercoaster, which is said to be the best rollercoaster in Disney, and waited in line. It was still early in the morning, so the lines weren't to long. We got right on the ride and it was by far the best ride ever. So we went on it again, and it was even better the second time. Then we decided to go to the Tower of Terror, where you get dropped and picked back up like you're in a hotel elevator. When we left the ride, there was this strange lady who obviously worked for Disney, who was dressed up in makeup and costume and started to talk to us. Eventually she found out we were there for the dance competition and asked us to teach her a dance, so we picked the macarena. Other people who were at the park started to join in and video tape us. It was actually really fun and I'm probably on some random person's home video from Disney World! We told the lady we needed to go and we went back to the buses and hopped on one to take us to Epcot.

At Epcot, we got fast passes (tickets that tell you a good time to come back and ride the ride and gets you in the front of the line) for 2 rides that we wanted to go on and went and explored around the park. We found some characters and took our pictures with them. Then we went back to the ride called Mission Space where you sit in a compartment that feels like you are a pilot of a rocketship that is going to Mars. It spins around and kinda feels like the silly silo but way way way way worse. Then we went to the Test Track which is where you get into a car and it takes you through all these tests like you are a test dummy. It makes you think you are even going to crash! Once we got off the rides, we went to the different countries that they have displayed in Epcot. We ate some Chinese food and got pictures and souvenirs from France, England, Japan, Mexico, and many other countries. By that time we were really tired, but it didn't stop us, so we kept going on and went to the buses to go to Magic Kingdom.

Magic Kingdom is the place with the huge castle and a bunch of little kiddie rides. We went to the two main big rides and got fast passes to come back later. We met some characters and went shopping for things to bring back to our friends. Then it was time to go to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which is a rollercoaster but it was really lame compared to the other ones we had went on that day. Then we went over to Space Mountain, another rollercoaster, and it was really fun. It's in the dark the entire time and you don't know if you should put your hands up or not because you feel like your hands are going to hit something. Its a big long maze. Then we did some more shopping and watched the fireworks over the castle and went back the hotel.

It was such an eventful day and we got through 4 days of parks in one because that's all that we had! Of course we didn't get to experience everything, but we gave those who hadn't been there an experience to remember.

That's all for now my fellow bloggers!
