I finished the gears in GTT! And no help to never-there-partner. When I was doing science MSA's during first block on Tuesday, she did three of them. But today she was doing testing and I finished the rest, which was five! All by myself! We still haven't done the questions yet, but they're easy and due on Monday. I'm also done with all MSA's, and I'm going into all high classes next year. We got our course selection sheets, and though I'm still confused about the electives part, I've done all the important stuff done. All I have to do is have my chorus teacher sign the fine arts stuff.

I went to the Celtic Festival yesterday. I bought two rings to replace the one that broke in gym class. I also searched the Andrews clan tartan. I couldn't find Andrews, but I found Anderson, but they said that it was the same thing. I watched the Pyrates Royale and sang along, signed a petition to save Mattawoman creek, talked to some Vikings, met a guy who I thought was King Henry VIII (but was not, since he was Scottish), watched caber tosses, listened to bag pipes, looked at fancy knifes, and drunk iced teas.

Today I have Girl Scouts. I have to bring 20 pictures of me, which was hard because, who prints pictures any more? So I had to print out a bunch of pictures from facebook. Though I think I have way more than just 20 pictures. I'm sorting through them now. I'm going to make a scrapbook with them.
At school it was career day. I learned about the Department of Justice, Cisco Networking, and some dude on the SWAT team. After that in GTT we had to model different kinds of gears or something, and my partner is this preppy girl who's always off doing the morning announcements, or doing something for SGA or yearbook club or whatever. Today she must have been helping with the career day. So for the period I just sat about trying to figure out the darn gears. What sucks even more is that for every gears there's a bunch of questions. The whole thing: the questions for the gears, and the signatures approving the 10 models we're supposed to be building is due on Thursday. So thanks to the idiot I'm paired with, I have to make 8 models in two days. I shake my fist at the world for my unlucky fortune, my sore throat, and my allergies.

Today in Language Arts, we are reading A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's sad that this is the third book we've read in the class but it's the only good one. The one's we've before were Farewell to Manzanar and The Pearl. In A Midsummer's Night's Dream, I am Peaseblossom, just because that name is so awesome. Though I wish I got a big speaking part so I could pronounce words correctly. My experiance with reading Anne Boleyn books help greatly. I have four lines, and I quote: "Ready." "Hail, mortal!" "Peaseblossom." "Ready." Awesome, I know. There's also another line where me and the three other fairies Cobweb, Mustardseed, and Moth say "Where shall we go?"
Here's The Beatles playing the play-within-the-play

Sorry about how short that last post was. I accidentally hit send on my phone too soon. There were only six girls from our troop came camping, and since we were the older girls we had to help with everything.
On Friday there was pizza delivered, I helped make the salad. I spent majority of the dinner time behind in the kitchen, helping the troop leader resupplying the servers with pizza and throwing away empty boxes. There was something strange with the water since it smelled like sewage, but other than that, dinner was food.
Afterwards there was a pajama party, but I was just too tired and I didn't want to scare the little kids. My friends in my Girl Scout troop said I was speaking gibberish when I came out of the bathroom after brushing my teeth.
Since our leader was the cook she wasn't there to tell us what to do, so most of the time we wandered around. On Saturday we had pancakes, eggs, bacon, and sausage for breakfast. Since there were a whole lot of kids the food was the kind you microwave, except the eggs. Thankfully there was applesauce to quench my picky stomach. My troop had to clean up after breakfast, and I got so wet when I was cleaning dishes with this clumsy girl.
We went down to the amphitheatre to watch these two people from the Port Tobacco Players talk about theatre. Afterwards we hung out in our cabins until the older girls told us we were late for lunch. It was cold-cut subs and chips. We went on a walk to Trefoil Lake. Near the biffy we saw an old boat that we took a picture on. We found a trail near the biffy, too and took it, not knowing where we would go. It was a long trail through the woods, and I led the way following the red markers. After that we were so hot we splashed each other with water.
Two girls got into a water fight and ran off. Me and another girl hung around our cabin until one of the girls in the water fight came back and chilled with us. We realized we should be doing something by now, and there was stations going on, so we went to the stations they said we had to go to, which was mask making. My mask is total awesomeness, and after that we hung in our cabin again.
Later in the evening we did skits in the amphitheatre, and had hot dogs and hamburgers for dinner. I was crazily tired, so I read in my cabin until the girls in my troop said we had to be in the amphitheatre for s'mores or something. I spent a while there, until I was just too tired and walked alone back to the cabin in the dark. In the cabin when everybody else got there, we talked and threw marshmallows at each other. We laughed our selves to sleep. In the morning I was so glad to go home to take a shower and see Andelle (i <3 u), and blog about it =]

Last night for dinner we had strawberry shortcake. Also yesterday in gym they made us run around for nearly the whole class, so today I feel sore all over, especially in my legs.

I found out a way to make a blog post using text messages so I'm testing it out. Lately we've been having breakfast for dinner. Like last night me and mom ate sausage. Tonight we made potato chips, and I cooked bacon. Mom says I made perfect bacon on my first try. ^_^

My dad gave me 21 volumes of this radio program about the history of The Beatles and their songs. All. Of. Them. I even have two of them in German. So now I have about all their songs, and it's so frickin' awesome! Except I can't get it on my mp3 player because it's being a buttnut.

Today I searched the Other Boleyn Girl movie online, and 72 minutes into the movie, it stopped. -_- Not cool, man, not cool.
I tried searching the series The Tudors. I couldn't find season 1 episode 1, but I did find episode 2. Missing one episode is all it takes to not understand what was going on.
If I feel like learning some real stuff about the Tudors, I use the most awesome website ever: http://tudorhistory.org/

Turns out MSA's is most definitely not over. Eighth grade has to take the science MSA's. How dandy.
In other news, the results from the North Point STI programs are in *drumroll*
Which is just a fancy term for "never going to happen". But I don't really care, since I'm going to North Point anyway.
Here's a game that i'm addicted to: http://www.costlife.org/

Today in LA we were making covers for our short stories, and I decided to name my story "Summer of Haight." I cut out a peace sign to put on the cover, and my teacher walks over and asks, "Why do you have a peace sign?" I was about to answer when she said "Oh yeah, you're a hippie." "Gee, thanks."
