An Enormous Plethora of Things

See, I hadn't blogged in a week, and then I decided to wait until a certain date, and then I was denied access to the computer for a bit, and then I was busy. Now, I am not busy. Miraculous day!

I dyed my hair red! This was the "certain date" I alluded to, two Sundays ago. Behold:

Isn't it lovely? Not my face, since you can't see that, but my hair. Just recall that I was blonde beforehand...and also, looking at it, that the lighting in my office isn't exactly superb. But, it is red! Hurrah!

What else has happened? There's so much to catch up on! Last week, I recieved a 5.5/40 on. If math isn't your strong point (apparently it is not mine, either), that's about 14%. I think there comes a point when it is beyond failing. Alas.

Often, when I don't blog for a long period of time, I find my writing clumsy and ill-worded. I just don't like how I write. I haven't written very much--blog or otherwise--in weeks, and now everything I write seems awful. I'd rather just...go do something else.

Hopefully that will change soon, because the second semester has started at my school, which means CREATIVE WRITING! I know so many people in that class, including Lauren, Maia, Kristen, and Tiffany. I also know some other people, though I'm not really friends with them, like Weslie. I think it's safe to say I don't really like him anymore. I haven't spoken to him yet, so I don't imagine my liking him in the future either.

Of course, with the new semester also comes gym. Two of my gym buddies from last year are in my class, which is wonderful, though nothing will ever compel me not to despise gym. We're playing volleyball again.

Last Saturday, I went to the mall with Lauren in hopes of finding a dress for Cotillion. I didn't find a dress (although I did find a lovely leapord-print prom dress which naturally I had to try on). I did buy a belt, though, so I suppose the trip wasn't entirely unsuccessful! Also, it's always fun to hang out with Lauren. She didn't buy anything, either.

Tomorrow is another meeting of Quills and Keys--my and Maia's writing club, if you forgot--AND a meeting of Model UN. We're having the meeting a day early because the next conference is this Saturday. My country and topic are actually really good--India for Water Rights--so I'm determined to do well. Aaaaand, maybe talk to Angola again? :D We'll see! Also, I ordered a very pretty dress for the conference, which I'm super excited to wear.

I think that's all for now. I'm off to do my Creative Writing homework--I have to write a poem about myself!

Saturday, January 14, 2012


I write to declare that yes, I am still alive. Having been MIA for two weeks, this might have indeed been a question.

My day has thus far consisted of not doing homework, not doing Model UN work, not doing work, and playing the Sims. On Thursday, I received my committee and country! I am: Water Rights, and India. I'm excited, because India is actually relevant to the topic. Ohhh man. Kim is also in my committee, which is cool. I intend to be super-duper prepared and fantastic at this conference--and no, it has nothing to do with Angola. I don't know if I ever mentioned this, but I added him on Facebook (Kim found him, like, two months ago) and he never accepted my friend request! Ah well. Fingers crossed that he's miraculously in my committee again.

I ordered this dress for the conference, and have thus far spent undue amounts of time staring at it online and checking the order status. Oh man, I want this dress to arrive. The order status estimates that it'll arrive next Monday, but I'm hoping that the Magic Gods of Dressdom will smile on me and make it show on, like, Wednesday. Isn't it pretty? :D

I have the perfect shoes for the conference, but they're about four inches tall and I, being a fail, cannot walk in them. Fail fail fail. Also, even if I could walk in them (which I can't), would it seem like I was trying too hard? This one girl wore ridiculously high shoes and she looked, well, ridiculous. I don't want to be that girl. No one wants to be that girl.

Were I the responsible and proactive type, this weekend I would: write an essay on Caracalla early to get extra credit, actually do my chemistry homework instead of staring at it for a little bit, sniffling, and putting it away, and begin research on water rights in India. I don't know what it is with chemistry this year, but it's basically scooping up my brains with a spoon and then laughing at me. I still have a B, even though I got a 72 on the last test, though, so I'm happy about that!

Of course, right after we finish a big project in biology, we start one in chemistry. Such are the woes of doubling up, I suppose. The biology project, my and Kathy's video on meiosis, turned out very well! See it for yourself!
Oops, I was GOING to do that, until I realized that it contained both of our full names in the credits. HAHHH fail.
^ That took over fifteen hours and 700 pictures, thank you. It amazed me that some people had less than 100 pictures. Anyway, I hope your enjoyment of it is inversely proportional to how much we hated making it!

So, my dress for the conference is taken care of, but I still need a dress for Sophomore Cotillion. I love red dresses and white dresses (not red and white, though, heavens!). I'm probably going to go to the mall at some point, hopefully with Lauren and Shari in two weeks. And maybe before then! Who knows? I want to do something this weekend, it being a three-day weekend and all that.

How has everyone been?
