Antihilleration - The removal of all hills in a surrounding area.

Me and my greatest girly Makaila were studying for our up-coming Social Diploma and we were reading each other sections about various wars and all that jazz. Makaila is a frenchie so English reading sometimes gives her a struggle. She was reading me an important tid-bit from my English Social text book and it came out like this:
Germany's central army group fought its way across Ukraine engaging in major battles of "antihilleration".
Really, they were battles of annihilation. But I think the removals of hills is a much more peaceful way of going about crossing the Ukraine. If I burst out laughing during the exam you can bet it's because the word annihilation came up.
Thanks Emm for making studying tolerable. Much love (=

The cassette portion of my dad's stereo conked out so I no longer have a way of switching CD's to cassettes unless I go buy a new stereo for lots of cash, which I don't really feel like doing. So I guess I'm stuck with only the oldies that came out when it was normal for people to listen to cassettes. I can live with that. It's going to be a summer of garage saling for old tunes for me!

If the Tooth Fairy still visited soon-to-be eighteen year olds I'd be rich!

My dentist wants to cut out my four wisdom teeth.
The date for this is the 7th.
This means no Taylor Swift concert or Calgary Stampede for moi )=

Wal-Mart should die

Fact 3) I have a hard time finding magazines that I like cause I don't want to read about Lindsay Lohan or 99 ways how to look like her.

Wal-Mart often gets different, non-mainstream magazines.
I always get hooked on them.
Then Wal-Mart stops selling them.
I'm just going to start paying $100 at the begining of every year and get subsrciptions for them all cause it does get rather annoying.

I just want to sparkle for a moment*

New buddy

I have decided that I want to get another chameleon. I had one a while back and it was by far the best critter ever!
I want a different kind this time though. Last time I had a meditteranian and it was shades of green and brown, I want something more non-neutral this time.
I was looking at some different types of panther chameleons and these are some I came across.Sambava
Nosy B
Red Bar Ambilobe
Blue Bar Ambilobe

Blue Bar Ambilobe
But then I saw this guy randomly on google images not a website and I like him the most of all...
But of course I have no idea what kind it is so buying him will be a struggle.

Well, it's been a gong show

This is it. I'm done. The end. Fini.
These past thirteen years have been:
Hectic and fun filled.
Stressful and a great teacher of resilience.
Filled with drama.. of every sort, good and bad.
Filled with tears and laughs.
Heart breaking and heart warming.
A journey of:
Making friends, loosing friends, and rekindling some lost friendships.
Great memories and times we wish could be forgotten.
Proudness and regrets
Failures and accomplishments.
Understanding and misinterpreting.

I now know what the importance of school is.
It is not to learn about trigonometry or the industrial revolution,
it is not to get us into the greatest of universities,
and it is not to give us a permanent grade based on one final test at the end.
It is about having the experience,
to interact with so very many different individuals,
to learn through our own experiences,
to create bonds with people that we never would have know otherwise.
It is here to teach us how to connect and accept,
how to grow positively,
and how to say good bye,
or realize who in life is too important to let go of.

It is a relief to finally be done and free. And to begin building my life the way I want it to be.
But even more than that it is sad to see it go.
It took me an hour and a half to leave the school today, and I literally bawled the hardest I have in probably a year the entire time.
My eyelids are puffy,
my cheeks are red,
my nose is running beyond belief!

There were so many people that I would have liked to say my final goodbyes too but they all left so fast.
Most of them I'm sure I will never see again.
And many people that I don't think will never know that I will miss them.
Even though this whole ride has been a gong show, I wouldn't trade a day of it for anything.

S'long SOCIAL STUDIES! We're through!

I'm pretty sure I just kicked that diploma's ass!

I bought myself a water proof iPod case today.
That way my nano could stay safe while floating down the river this summer.
When I got home I realized it was sized for the new nanos, and I own an old.
But I shoved that beast in there anyways... It got stuck.
I had to cut it out.
What a wait of four ninty-nine.

Worth the crazy high prices of Galaxy Cinema

I just watched Up in 3D and I was very impressed.
Sure the movie was great, more like excellent, but those glasses!!!
They aren't hardly-what-you-could-call-cardboard/thickish paper.
They don't make you dizzy after 30 second of wearing them.
The don't have that flimsy filmy Saran wrap for lenses.
They don't even have red and blue!
They just look like regular specks!
But sweeter.
AND we get to keep them!
I think I'm going to wear mine on a regular basis.

Fact 2) I like the rain

Thank you Lily Allen for saying it like I never could have.

This is for all of those who I won't miss after I graduate.
Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much.
Cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew,
so please don't stay in touch!
Most of you I do actually like though. But a select few deserve this.
^whole song^

85% of my memories came from something that ends Wednesday at 11:30. Forever.

So today was the last Friday of high school. Ever. Only three days left and then life completely changes.
I bought my grad DVD today and watched it and I am really going to miss a lot of these gals and fellas.
I realized that in this last month, I have talked to so many more people than I normally do. It's like now that we are so close to never seeing each other again, we all become good friends.
The cliques all seem to fall apart, or rather, open up in this last tiny tad of high school.
I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but it's really a shame that it is only happening now.
Why couldn't all of high school been like this

Au revoir PM, you'll be missed.

Today we had our final presentation of The Puppet-Master. And I think, due to all the mishaps, it went quite well. We had to hunt for costumes that had been left in the washer, improv the lights AND sound because both cue sheets were conveniently misplaced, and a few lines were forgotten but thankfully corrected without being noticeable to the audience. Everything worked out in the end though, and all in all it was a pretty fantastic show, which is saying a lot cause it was definitely the worst performance we've had. I'd also like to congratulate The Still Alarm on their final show. They as well, I believe, had a couple small dilemmas such as missing props but their cover ups only added to the great comedy of it all, so certainly nothing to be regretful of. I'm sad to see the show come to an end. I'm going to miss having something like that to proudly work on and I'm certainly going to miss my cast, but it was a jolly jaunt, and it brought some great giggles and many memories. Good luck to the next folk who challenge it.

Good feelings

I love those little things that people say to you that just make your day.
When people don't even realize how happy it really makes you, they are just honestly saying it, because that's what they truely feel.
I directed a play in my Theatre Tech 35 class (we do the directing, lights, sound, and stage management for the Drama 30 class) and I am very happy with the outcome of it. I am very proud of how it turned out. That show was my baby, my life for 2.5 straight months. But I didn't feel like anyone really appreciated it like I did besides my co-director.
I had asked another of the Techs, who was running our sound for the play, if he would be willing to come early today before school so that we could have a rehearsal before our next performance. I really didn't think he would want to because he had missed almost the entire drama class yesterday because he was tired. (I later learned that he had not slept the entire night before, so I find that to be a pretty good excuse and a good reason not to want to come to the school an hour and a half before school starts, just to sit in a booth and slide some sliders, and play some players.)
But his response to me was not in the least what I had expected.
He replied: "The Puppet-Master was one of the few plays I actually enjoyed. I'll forsure be there."
This, to you, may not sound all that great but, to me, it was.
I can't exlain why, just something about it made me smile from ear to ear. And it keeps flashing back to me, keeping me in a good mood throughout the day.
So thank you Mr. J.E. for brightening the day a tad and making me feel confident about this play, even if you didn't realize you were.

Never eat crackers from kids named Mike.

Today in English class I was eating some crackers from a box that a kid a couple desks over had brought.
About three minutes after I ate my last cracker from my handful, he came over and placed this <--- little guy on my desk.

"I found that in my cracker box."

"Hopelandic" vs English

I was recently listening to a song I really enjoy called Hoppipolla by an Icelandic group of fellow's named Sigur Ros, when I realized that I really had no idea what the song was about.
So I searched the lyrics on the internet and this is what I found them to mean;


Spinning 'round and 'round
Holding hands
The whole world a blur
But you are standing
Completely drenched
No rubber boots
Running in us
Want to erupt from a shell

Wind in
And outdoor smell of your hair
I breathe as hard as I can
With my nose

Hopping into puddles
Completely drenched
With no boots on

And I get a nosebleed
But I always get up

And I get a nosebleed
But I always get up

And I STILL love this song, maybe even more now (=
And to top it all off, even though the band is Icelandic, this song is not..
They made up their own language for this song.
They call it Hopelandic.
Props to Sigur Ros, keep being original.

Kick off

Well now, I'm pretty excited to actually start a blog. I've thought about it for awhile now, just never actually did..
Fact 1) I procrastinate.. majorly.
I haven't got much to say tonight and it's gettin' late so I will leave it here.
And maybe I will return, we'll see how this goes.
