Talent Show

Today was the school’s talent show, but I’ll get to that later.

Business, I think our teacher is seriously starting to hate the class. He seems kind of angry all the time now, as if he’s ready to blow up in a second. I don’t blame him though. In our class there’s always like only five people who answer, and then he seems to not like two of the five. Plus, people are always talking and stuff. The problem is, he’s really nice, and people take advantage of that. Oh well, I can’t control em, and I’m not going to try… as much as I like him as a teacher, I also like that I’m not really hated by anyone… well almost anyone…

Biology, we had a quiz and then… what did we do? Just like talk? Oh wait. We got an assignment for some debate about the ‘Planet Earth’ movie we watched yesterday, which I had fallen asleep whilst watching it.
Great…

So Talent Show. It was … interesting.
First up: NV cheerleaders. Lots of kicks and dancing and pyramids.
Next: Some girl singing an original song, it wasn’t too bad…
Dance Crew Time. Some Filipino group danced, and they were pretty funny.
Then my friend Anna’s brother performed a long arse piano piece. That was so boring. I’m sorry, but seriously…
Two guys performed a song (instrumental (piano and drums)) called God Knows.
Then a girl sang ‘I’m Yours’ by Jason Mraz
Followed by another dance group that did a dance in another assembly with the song ‘So Dope’ this time with Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’
M (another friend… kinda… again) sang ‘The Climb’ by Miley Cyrus. It was good (the vocals) but the dance was so … well… yeah… she shouldn’t dance, let’s just say that…
Then a girl dance crew, all asians, they were good. Guys loved them -rolls eyes- pigs.
After, R and D (two guys that are friends (kinda) of mine) played some song on electric guitars. They were REALLY boring… It sounded like they were at a funeral or something… Then for one second, they had a interesting section, and D flew onto his knees as if he was a heavy rocker… it was…. pretty boring. I’m sorry to say…
My (kinda (again)) friend A’s brother’s girlfriend played a piano piece. I liked her performance because it was a song that I’m currently playing : Le Coucou. Funny name, but annoyingly easy but complicated song. Yeah…
Then an Asian girl sang ‘Love Story’ by Taylor Swift which wasn’t bad, except for the chorus…
After, some kid played a guitar solo kind of thing that was really good, but his amp was pretty low, so that kind of killed it.
Then my friend O sang ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’ by Beyonce which was really good, but kinda dragged on…
Lastly, the teacher’s did this whole band rock and roll thing again. It was really awesome.

I think there were a few I missed, but knowing me I’ll never remember until I’m reminded.

Also, today, after school, I watched the Oprah Winfrey Show : Twilight Saga : Eclipse
So she had Rob Pat, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, and Dakota Fanning on. Rob was pretty funny, and he spoke the most. I know that a lot of girls are obsessed with him, but I don’t get why. Other’s hate his guts. Again, I don’t get why. He’s not the greatest looking person, but he’s not the worst person out there. He’s not bad with things like interviews, but you’ll never see me drooling over him. It’s not him that everybody loves and hates, it’s his character. I just find that dumb. I’m sorry, but seriously, this whole Twilight thing is out of hand. Through the show, Oprah showed clips of Rob Pat going around to stranger’s houses where he’d knock on their door, and give them tickets to the premiere of Eclipse with Oprah. All of these people were fans of Twilight, and even more obsessed with Edward Cullen. It’s crazy how these people are so obsessed about this series. It’s not that godly. Sigh.
Then TL went to a Sorority House on a university campus, I think. All the girls were obsessed with him, and when he walked into the room, they all like spazzed. Crazy obsessed people…

Best series: Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare or Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (for the supernatural obsessers. Go read those, and you shall toss Twilight out the window. Seriously…)

Two Days Left

Two more days of freedom, and then back to school we go. Oh well, it was fun at least.

Yesterday, I went to Yorkdale, and we spent two hours in the Bay shopping for a suit for my dad. What a waste of two hours. Then after, we got five minutes in Indigo, and then we had to go, because my dad had to go get his hair cut. That was probably the most boring trip to Yorkdale I’ve ever had. Sigh.

So my actual Internet is kind of..used up. So if I don’t post (like yesterday) you’ll know why~

I watched How to Deal yesterday~ It was good. The movie was a mix of Sarah Dessen’s books This Summer and Someone Like You. The screen writer was able to mix the two together well. Granted, it wasn’t like crazy like Harry Potter, nor was it enlightening and amazing like Avatar, and it wasn’t about sparkly vampires like Twilight. But it was pretty good overall.

Yesterday, I also watched the Grammys. I loved the performances so much. Pink’s performance was awesome. She was singing while being pulled up on a piece of white fabric, and in the middle, she was dipped in water, which she sent flying over the audience in a fountain at the end of the song as she spun downwards back onto the ground. Taylor Swift was able to walk off with many wins, including the Album of the Year award, winning it over Beyonce and Lady Gaga. Beyonce’s performance was good too. She was singing If I Were A Boy. I love her dress in the performance~~ Lady Gaga opened the show singing Poker Face, and then another song with Elton John. As always, her performances were creepy and yet great.

Also, last night, they did a tribute to Michael Jackson. They showed a part of his movie, This Is It, and they sang with him, in a way. Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Usher, Smoky Robinson, and Jennifer Hudson all sang with Michael (his voice from the movie). The whole tribute was introduced by Lionel Richie, who had co-written ‘We Are The World’ with Michael years ago. The tribute was touching, and after his children came up to the stand to thank the audience for the Michael’s award.

This year’s Grammy’s was definitely one that would never be forgotten.

Winter Break Begins~

Yeah~! Winter Break is finally here. ‘Course there’s still work to be done, but at least schools on hold for a while.

Today was totally fun, and… free? Well, in first period History, our teacher was late, so another teacher filled in. all we did was chat, since there were only five people in the class~ Then in second period, Careers, my teacher let us talk and do as we pleased, so I happily finished Blue Bloods, and I have to say, the book is awesome. Not cliche, and not too out there. I enjoyed it a lot, so now I need to find the second book to read… In fourth, or well… third period, we just ran around the class taking pictures, drawing on the board, and chilling. It was hilarious some of the things my friends did. Then in last period… or fourth period? Our school counts lunch as period three, since some people have classes at that time, and so it’s a little confusing. Well, anyways, in math we just ran around the school, exchanged gifts (well I recieved, but I’m giving after the break ^^) and our teacher was surprisingly nice today, so she gave out chocolate and let us play cards, and draw all over the board, and run around to other classes. It was a fun day.

Later on, at 11:30? :40? somewhere around there, the Holiday Assembly started. It was pretty cool, even though some of the performances were the same as the ones from Destination NV. They did the study hall skit again, but I think it was better this time. It’s basically Quest Crew (america’s best dance crew season 2//so you think you can dance) but high school kid version. It was fun~ They also did a skit about the true meaning of Christmas which was good =) A few people sang, but I think my favourite perfomance was the teacher’s performance. First the male teachers did this kind of rockband thing, where they all play instruments and one female sings, so they did two of those, and then the female teachers came out and danced to Single Ladies by Beyonce. It was really good ^^

My favourite student performer was this girl who sang Fireflies by Owl City, she did it really well, and then everybody brought out their cell phones and started waving them back and forth. The whole assembly was awesome~

Currently: Just chilling. Finally~!!
