Ooohh... Blogger is all new looking. Not that you can see.. but take my word for it :)
I'm finished with school except for exams!! Woo-hoo!
I am happy to announce that Elijah's hair is successfully growing back. You can see him in all his glory here
Last Sunday was Seva's birthday party at Six Flags and it was so much fun! I completely overcame my fear of rollercoasters. Yay! Hahaha at one point Katie and I were on the "Mind Eraser" and we sang the national anthem through the whole thing and it was fun :D. "And the rockets red glaaaareee!!" Ahahah.... good times. I ate too much homemade icecream which was reeeeallly good (one scoop chocolate brownie and one scoop peanutbutter) but made me sick to my stomach, so I didn't go on the swings :( or the little twirly thing.. but I was good by the time it was time to go home. Sorry for the run-on ><. Anyway.. that was so much fun, thanks for inviting me Seva!
Today was graduation and the orchestra went to play. It was lots of fun, I sat with Mary, Meg, Sarah, and Jordan and we had a grand old time. Jordan lived in England for 4 years and he had an accent and he's so cool!! I always feel so conceited when I'm talking about England. Like I think I'm better than everyone else just because I've been there. I don't know. Whenever there's someone who's from there or lived there or has been there, I always HAVE to have them know I've been because I love talking about it so much. So I feel stuck up because.... I don't know... It's annoying though because I love to talk about England because I love it so much, but I feel conceited when I do. Anyway... I want to go there now *_* So.. back to graduation. It was lots of fun.. except for the playing Pomp and Circumstance for 20 minutes while the graduates walked accross the stage. Jason and Rama both had really good speeches. Very inspirational and thought provoking.

Your MONKEY DAEMON represents a nature that is
admired, detail-oriented, and full of
curiosity. Some people might call you self-
absorbed. You like to plan ahead, and hone your
various talents to perfection.
What Animal Would Your Daemon Settle As? brought to you by Quizilla
I want a Daemon soooo much! If you've never read "The Golden Compass" and its trilogy, you are missing out. They are so good!
Those questions were hard.... I hate choosing *_*
Katie finally got Emily and me to see "The Ring". They and Rebecca came over and we ordered pizza and watched it (the movie, not the pizza). Te people at the pizza place talk too fast. The first time I called I thought I had the wrong number because I heard "Hi, Holly's Ski Hole". The second time I called I realized they just talked to fast and the lady had actually said "Pizza Boli's, how may I help you?". Anyway, "The Ring" was OK. It wasn't that scary considering I didn't look at any of the rotting faces. (Thanks Katie, I trust you now :D) Break: I'm listening to "London" by 3EB and I really want to go...
I went to bed at about 11 and I was fine, but then I woke up at 12 for some reason and didn't get back to sleep for a while. My nerves were on edge from the movie, I was hot, and I was soooo tired. I had been tired all day. I timed my heart rate (because it felt fast) and it was 72/min. When I woke up this morning it was 59/min. I think it was a combination of my nerves and the heat. It was really annoying, but I finally fell asleep listening to country music, which is really calming.
All that's between me and summer is these two poems (well, and exams) and it's so stupid... I should be able to do this, but I can't even sit down and try, I'm too scared of failure. I realized I really need to study for the Algebra exam. And the Spanish one. And Biology. And NSL. Yes, that's right, the sophmores have to take the county AP NSL exam, even though we took the AP exam in May. Ms. Muehl doesn't even teach AP NSL, she teaches AP Government and Politics. Although they might sound the same.. they aren't. Oh, speaking of AP Gov, we're having a bagel breakfast party Monday. I can't wait.. they're from Panera! Mmm....
OK, I WILL write my poems today. They WILL be good poems. They WILL they WILL they WILL......
Mood: Strange....frusterated, in a calm, indiferent way....

GAAaaahhhhrrrrroaisdfjakds.... I have to write two free poems for tuesday and I want them to be good, but I can't think of any ideas. All my ideas are corny or just not ideas. I could write two corny poems, but I don't want to, I want them to be good.... I also want to go to bed and read my book, which will leave me poemless on Sunday night, and writing two stupid, cliche poems on Monday. Bleah.
I went running with Halley today and I'm really tired; not mentally, but physically. It was a good run, we did the Clemente run backwards (not like anyone would know what that is... but it goes past Clemente) which was really hilly and tiring. It was hard, but I feel accomplished. I'm pretty sure I'm going to do cross country next year. It really appeals to me. It's very balanced between the team and the individial, plus I really want to see what I can do in distance.
I think I'm just going to go to bed. I feel like... I don't know... I'm so frusterated about these poems. I don't want to feel like I need guidelines, I want to be able to write on cue, whatever comes to mind, and write it well, but I can't. We're so trained to write by prompt, we always have some kind of guidelines. Now we don't and I'm lost. >< Bah...

Harry Potter makes me a Happy Person
HP fans, read this..
"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by J. K. Rowling, the fifth in the bestselling series, has been scheduled for release on Saturday, June 21, 2003.
As Harry enters his fifth year at wizard school, it seems the bonds "of friendship and trust" have never been more sorely tested. Lord Voldemort's rise has opened a rift in the wizarding world between those who believe the truth about his return, and those who prefer to believe it's all madness and lies -- just more trouble from Harry Potter.
Add this to a host of other worries for Harry...
A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey
A venomous, disgruntled house-elf
Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
And of course, what every student dreads: end-of-term Ordinary Wizarding Level exams
...and you'd know what Harry faces during the day. But at night it's even worse, because then he dreams of a single door in a silent corridor. And this door is somehow more terrifying than every other nightmare combined."
Ron is the keeper!!! New Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher! And I HAVE to know whats wrong with the door!! MUST.....HAVE.......BOOK!!........

I want an LJ. I want an LJ with a good name. I want an LJ with those happy little faces that illustrate your mood. I want an LJ that people I don't know read and enjoy, like I do with LJ's of people I don't know. I want my biology homework to be done.
My dad deleted Kazaa from our computer because he heard there's a virus going around through it and he is still scarred from the last time we got a virus and it deleted all of our pictures. I don't blame him, we had 3 years of pictures gone, some of them very important, such as the ones of my uncle who recently passed away, and I don't want that to happen again. But I do want Kazaa back... because that's where my music comes from. I have recently been introduced to some new bands/singers and now I can't further explore their music because I have been cut off at the source. If I had money I would go out and buy the CD's, but I don't have money. If I had time I would get a job in order to earn money, but I don't happen to have any time because of that little inconvenience we like to call school.
I can't wait for summer. Here are some things I want to get accomplished this summer:
1. Start teaching myself the guitar from the "Teach yourself to play the guitar" book I have.
2. Become a better artist (drawing wise).
3. Do regular distance runs with Halley and Cara (and Nancy if she wants do, but she doesn't tend to like distance runs).
4. Run a 5k.
5. Read "Fast Food Nation", "Little Women", "The Salmarillion" and some other books I can't remember right now.
6. Start regular riding lessons again.
7. Have an Elijah movie marathon.
6. Go to an amusement park.
7. Run in the rain.
8. Swim in really cold water (which I will be sure to do in Maine).
9. Meet someone new.
There's plenty more I want to do, but that's all I can think of right now. OK, back to Biology homework.

It is now 8:00 and time for the penguin on top of your television set to explode
WHAT TYPE OF WILD CREATURE ARE YOU? (New Pictures!)
brought to you by Quizilla
Penguins are so cool!! My neighbor is obsessed with them, he draws them all the time. He's actually a really good artist.
We had HSA's this week so I got to sleep in Monday, Wednesday, and today, Friday. Right now I'm watching TTT and eating peanut butter and jelly... and it makes me happy! So...I won't write any more right now, maybe this afternoon.
