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.

Yesterday is history, Today is a present, and both are a pain.

My Internet is a bum. Sigh.

Today was mostly devoted to finishing my civics newspaper project, which will be worth I think ten percent of my civics mark… I think… Eh. Either way, I’m almost done.

My dad’s going on a business trip this week, so I get to spend a week with my mom. and sister. and brother. all irritating. This shall be a week of confinement in my room, only leaving for school, and nourishment. He’ll be back Friday to over see the fixing on our highly vexing internet. And then Saturday is All Hallow’s Eve. Wee~~ Candy~~!!

I’m dressing up as my sister. I just need to wear colours and put a clip in my hair, and BAM. I look exactly like my sister. We aren’t twins, but we look close enough to be.

Currently: Pasting newspaper articles in my ‘political scrapbook’

Reading: Ressurection… well, attempting to again.

Listening to: Disturbia by Rihanna

 

Because of dumb Internet, I couldn’t post yesterday. It had flashed on for about five minutes and then turned off… This was yesterday’s entry, a day late >.>

Today was an average Saturday. Piano in the morning, lunch, and then homework, homework, homework. Dinner fits somewhere in between, but you get the idea.

I have to finish a history essay, first draft, by Monday, study for a math quiz I’m bound to fail, start my oral presentation for the first week of November and complete my civics newspaper project for this coming week. I have yet to find a reason why some people think school is fun. I just don’t get it.

On Monday, we’re getting our mentees, and I am feeling sorry for the poor kid who’s stuck with me as a mentor. I’ll be no help whatsoever for him or her. Good luck kid…

Currently: making a small dent in my history essay

Reading: my history textbook…

Listening to: No Boundaries by Kris Allen

Internet, or no Internet. Which would work?

Yesterday, I wasn’t able to post, to my dismay. My internet was being a bum and didn’t want to connect. I would blame it on the company, but they’re already blaming everything else on earth for their problems, so I think I’ll wait for the issue to come up on the news.

Yesterday was my math test. And I think I did pretty well. Now usually that would be considered a good thing. However, last time I had thought I had done well on a test, I had failed…. epically… so right now, I guess you could say I’m on the fence of failure or passing.

Also, I have a history essay to complete. Now normally, I wouldn’t care about something that’s main point was to write about something, but it’s history, and the themes aren’t the most thrilling. Which brings me back to that issue, where you give me a subject I hold no passion to and tell me to write about it. Well, I can only do so much before I run out of less-than-enthusiastic passion.

Currently: Hungry…

Reading: My sister’s keeper. (well the book’s mine, so I feel no obligation to rush through it…)
