Winter Break!!

It's winter break!! WOOHOO! I was in much need of a break, and mine got sort of extended a week, since I was sick most of the last week of school. I swear, I've been sick more in the last three months than  in the last three years! I'm still sick, with what I don't know (my friends are all set on me having bronchitis) but now I've got these two weeks to rest!!! MWHAHAHAHHAH.
Our family decided that for Christmas, they wanted to do a cruise. On a boat. joy... I have a slight aversion to watercraft, no matter what the size really.  So this Christmas should be... interesting? Today, I must finish my Christmas shopping, and then REST.
Two weeks is a long time, and I think I'll get down to some writing in this period because I have barely written anything at all in the last like 3 months. Maybe I can post some of the creative pieces or something from my English journal. =D
Anyways, we have our Christmas tree, and according to tradition, we have named it. Last year it was Colonel Blimp, after the main character in one of my dad's favorite movies, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. I can't really remember what the year before was, but usually, they are after characters in movies or books or something like that.  This year, our beautiful tree (really, it is quite lovely) is named Mel a.k.a D.S Amelia Silver, one of the characters from the AMAZING, SENSATIONAL, SPECTACULAR, WONDERFUL, EXTRAORDINARY series from BBC, Waking the Dead. I love that show and I have wasted over 30 hours of my life watching it. What can I say, it's an obsession...
We only added one new ornament to our tree this year, a surfing Santa from Hotel Del Coronado.  None from India.
OH speaking of India, we are trying to figure out where to go with all the miles we earned from going to India. My vote goes to Spain, and then going to Morocco for a bit, to add two countries, and a continent.  But, like the little caption on our Christmas card (made by me, AHEM) who knows where we'll end up?

time flies..

I guess it's true to say that time flies.  It doesn't seem at all like I've had this blog a whole year plus like a week!
Around this time last year, I think I was complaining about my English teacher, and the dumb assignments we had in her class. Well, this time around in December, I'm loving my English teacher/class/assignments! We've actually read some good books, I found an author I liked, and because of the assignments, I was forced to find a book of my own, and I am ending up to love it!!
I'm kinda reading a lot of books right now, but that's ok, because I'm almost done with one, another is really easy, and I am enjoying the other two quite a bit.  The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde  is interesting, and I enjoy our in-class discussions/debates/tangents that we get on from one little question about the book.  Mary Reilly  is an easy read little companion to Jekyll and Hyde.  On my own, I picked up  The Reader at a little bookshop in Coronado (we had Thanksgiving at the Del Coronado), and am speeding right through it.  About a Boy, though, by far, is my favorite.  I find it poignant and funny, and sweet.  And true.  (also the movie is one of my favorites).
We just made cookies, 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies, and 3 dozen molasses cookies.  We're sending two dozen of each to my friends dad who is stationed in Afghanistan.  So I feel like I did my good deed this holiday season.  I donated 2 dollars to livestrong, and a lot of pennies to Pennies for Peace.
Rat dissection on Thursday!!

Ick. I'm sick.  Or rather, I was really sick, and now I'm slightly better.
I ate for the first time since Wednesday yesterday.  Threw up 10 times Thursday.  Almost threw up yesterday.  Dry heaved around 6 times Friday.  Almost passed out during softball yesterday.
I ran out of stuff to throw up.  It was gross. Throwing up is such an awful physical sensation. You all of a sudden start sweating, and then you get awful woozy, and then the gagging, the ewwwwwwwww. Stopping. Dropped my uncle off to get on his cruise today.  Everyone in the car was talking about throwing up.  I know for a fact that none of them has thrown up in at least 10 years. I told them to shut up, I might puke on them if they don't. They did. I can barely stand.  This sucks.  I'm slowly being allowed to eat. key word slowly. Blah.

my favorite ghost

His hands,
are your hands
If only in my mind
Their touch, 
if I forget,
if I close my eyes,
if I pretend,
it could be yours.

I’d not forgotten you,
and I don’t hate you,
as you seem to think.

In fact, 
quite the opposite. 
I miss you, 
and I love you.
He’s not you.

But I was scared,
so I killed this bond,
before it could grow,
and hurt me.
Now you’re gone, 
a murmur of
a rainy Saturday
in June.

You are gone.
You are not here.
You are not mine.
I don’t pretend you are.
I must forget this.
It was my choice.
But the problem is,
I can’t.

I can’t forget the ghost,
that lingers on during the 
end of that song
or turn away from 
once inviting curbs.
You are my demon,
my haunt that won’t leave me.
But please,
don’t leave me.
You are my favorite

I remember the first time I saw you
Standing in the grey, bleak day
Scrunching your face up every time
A drop of water hit you
Trying to dodge the drops
Trying to do the impossible

I remember that smile
That little curve of red
That stood out from the shades of grey

I remember smiling back
More of a grin really
Teeth showing
Lifting my head to the sky
Fingers spread out

I remember now
We all have raindrops to dodge
Impossibilities to do
We just need to remember
That a simple smile
Can get us through

i'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining (:

We are a week slash two weeks into October.  Can you believe it?  (i know i can't) 
We're right up on  that time of year.  That nerve wracking, nail biting, fist clenching

couple of weeks.
That's right.
MLB postseason.
I'm going to the game Thursday.  I went to the first game of the NLDS.  Painted my face.
It was pretty awesome.

School sucks.  Or, most of it does... I get so ridiculously bored, except in English. I like that class.  And the day seems to go on ffffffooooooorrrrrreeevvvvverrr. 
We are working on a compare and contrast essay in English, about different "cliques". you must interview random (or just people that aren't part of that clique) to get stereotypes of the clique.  Then you gotta interview people from the clique.  Then you gotta write an essay about it.  This is due the 20th.  I should probably get on that.  As much as I hate when teachers give you only one or two nights to do an assignment, I do a better job than when I get two weeks to do it.  Because I am a procrastinator .  OH which reminds me I have to do that long term math assignment. FUN!
But other than that, school is good (ish)

I'm kinda sick right now, it's kinda raining, and my dad is kinda at a meeting, and i'm kinda bored, and kinda have nothing to do.
AN OPPORTUNITY TO WRITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

have a great week!

i've severed some ties that needed to be severed. i've made amends with some people who i missed. and i've kept on top of my school work.
let's keep it that way.
in this past week that i have been grounded, i have been denied internet, except for the purpose of school work. it is pathetic, and i mean PATHETIC how reliant i am on internet/facebook/ichat/cell phone. P A T H E T I C. For the past week i've felt so disconnected from my friends/the world, it's ridiculous. and to think i get internet back only for this weekend really....
hopefully, i can start posting english assignments on here, but they might just be boring boring essays...

root for the dodgers, and have a great weekend!!

ok I didn't plan on doing this but I will because I know I won't ever get around to a super detailed post about India.

sorry for that long title.  but it summarizes what i am about to do. which is try to compress India into a post.  i am wishing myself luck.  (BTW sorry that the pictures are bad quality-- i dragged them off my album on facebook :D)
Still in New Delhi, we went to Humayun's tomb.  It was soooooooooooooooooooooo sooo sooo beautiful. The Taj Mahal was in part based off it's design.  The first double dome (i think that's what it's called) in India.  It's really beautiful place, sandstone, with a garden.  Also, we went to the National Museum. and the Craft Museum, which I like more than the National Museum.  A couple carpet shops (ergg) and of course, Professor Butt, who ensured that I will never forget that hand knotted carpets are in fact NOT the same as hand made.  We went to the Gandhi Museum, on the location of his martyrdom.  The stuff downstairs was really interesting, and the stuff upstairs was too.  But th
e stuff upstairs was a little trippy.  Like something from a sixties movie...but still interesting.  It was odd to be in such a peaceful place in the middle of New Delhi.
Flash forward through the super nice domestic terminal in Delhi, to hopping off the plane in Varanasi, possibly my favorite place we went.  It's a holy Hindu city, and also a holy Buddhist city I think.  It's one of the worlds oldest living cities.  It's considered a "small" city.  Small being a population of about 4 million. :D  It's a lot different than New Delhi, which is much more urban.  Varanasi is located on the banks of the river Ganges. The monsoon this year was bad, so the river was kinda down, but not all the way.  While we were there, there were a lot of pilgrims, dressed in saffron clothing, which has a special meaning, that escapes my mind.  Might be sacrifice.  They walk from their homes, and take water from the river, because it is holy.  A lot of people are cremated in Varanasi, because of its h
oliness.  There are two main crematoriums, and one electrical one.  The two main ones have around 200 crem
ations a day.  We took a little boat out on the Ganges, and made our way over to the crematorium.  The people there don't mind if you watch, you just can't take pictures beyond a certain point.  It was really...I'm not sure the word to use...interesting? I'm not sure.  The atmosphere made it so that it was macabre or morbid at
all.  Death there is treated a lot differently than it is here, so the dead bodies wrapped in their cloth didn't seem scary or bad.  They seemed more peaceful.  We took the boat back in, and watched the evening ceremonies, which are to honor Mother Ganges.  Those were really cool.  We were on the banks of the river, seeing the moon rise over the Ganges.  It was really indescribable.  We went out on the river again the next day, at around 4 in the morning, which was no biggie, since I was already up.  We then went to temples, museums, and a couple historical locations.
Back to New Delhi.  Into the car.  Onto the road.  Holding onto my seat.  I was told on multiple occasions there, by multiple people, that there is a say
ing in India that goes "to drive in India, you need three things: brakes, a horn, and luck".  SOOSOSOSOSOSO true. All the way to Agra, there were cars coming down the other side of the road, animals and people in the street, yadayadayada.  I fell asleep, woke up in the middle of the night, looked up at the spedometer, and saw the number 100.  I flipped out for about 10 minutes before I realized that it was 100 kilometers per hour.  Not miles.  Whatever- it felt like it.

We checked into out hotel in Agra around 9 hours after we left New Delhi.  I deci
ded to order fried rice, and my dad ordered
 paneer.  I had had paneer in other restraunts and it was ok.  This stuff my dad got, I might have puked a little in my mouth when I saw it.  Too bad my dad has never mastered my technique of making it look like you loved the food you actually hated.  It really works.  He got a little sick.  But not too bad.  ANYWAYS.  The next morning, we got up, and went to the Taj Mahal.   WOAH.
So, everyone has seen pictures of the Taj Mahal, and heard of it's astounding beauty.  Ok. The pictures, the descriptions, they don't come anywhere near the truth.  I was literally left speechless by its beauty.  Me, speechless, that is qui
te a task.  It is such a beautiful building, with the gardens and reflecting pool.  Only bad thing was the breeze (that OH SO AMAZING breeze) rippled the water in the reflecting pool, so you couldn't see the reflection.  It's just amazing and wonderful and breathtaking and.... great.   After that, we went to Agra fort, which had some seriously cool stuff.  But my dad has a terrible fear of heights, and almost got a little sick in one
of the towers.  But that's ok, I liked it.  :D
Onto Jaipur, the pink city.  The hotel there was super nice.  Had a really big pool.  :D
First, we went to the Amber Fort.  My method of transportation: elephant! That was one awesome ride.  I really liked it.  But then, after, I felt bad for the elephant, because it was hot, they wanted to go sleep, and the elephant drivers or whatever they're called, kept hitting their heads with bars.   But still, it's an experience I'm glad I had.  In the Amber fort, there were some awesome rooms, especially the mirror room, where the walls had mirror on them.  I liked that.   City palace was also cool.  We ate lunch next to th
e Maharaja.  or he ate next to us, cuz' we were there first.  That was cool.  We also bought a bunch a pictures, which we got framed, and I might take pictures of the pictures and post them.  Maybe. If I'm not too lazy.  We went to another fort, possibly called Jagra (not sure-can't remember-don't feel like checking) fort, where there was a HUGE cannon, fired once, and a hella lot of monkeys. They were cuties (:  At some point in this huge fort, I lost my dad.  I spent about an hour walking around the fort, end to end, 3 times, in 100 degree heat + humidity, with no water because he had the bag, to look for him.  I swear I almost hit him when I found him.  We went to the monkey temple, which was SUPER DUPER cool. Because of the monkeys :D  I got to feed monkeys!! They took the food out of my ha
nds!!!!!!!!  We went to the Maharaja memorial, which was really cool, because it seemed kind of forgotten.  It was really beautiful, but seemed a  little abandoned.  I liked it.
We hopped a propeller plane (EEK I HATE FLYING SO MUCH) to Udaipur.
Udaipur was by far the smallest city we went to. Not even a million people.  Lazy little town.
We stayed at the Lake palace, which was the summer palace of the Maharana of Udaipur, now converted into a hotel.  A really nice hotel.  REALLY nice.  My favorite pictures of that hotel aren't on my computer at all, so I can't post them, but it was really beautiful and peaceful and relaxing.  It's in the middle of a lake, and you have to take a little boat to get out there. So cool.
We went to the Monsoon Palace, which is on top of a huge hill, and you have to take a really really windy road to get there.  I have no fear of heights, but that drive was a little scary.  Once you got to the top though, you got a great view.  We also went to the city palace, which was the Maharana's winter home, and where the Mah
arana currently lives.  That place was really cool, so great rooms with mirrors in the walls, stained glass, great views.  So beautiful.  By this time, the schalazium (it's a stye on the inside of your eye) in my eyes was really bad, so we had to go back to the hotel, where I moaned and groaned about it.  It was really bad.  Hurt.  Still hasn't quite gone away ):
I was sad to leave Udaipur, and even sadder to leave India.  But we had to, and took the long flight home from New Delhi to Chicago (we got delayed) and I watched Wolverine, 27 Dresses, and Star Trek.  I watched Star Trek 3 times.  We arrived in Chicago before customs opened, so we had to stay on the plane for half an hour, until 5 AM
.  We rushed through that, and ate fast, and then, the flight back to LA got delayed 2 hours.  Whoop-dee-doo.  Back to LA, that flight seemed a lot longer than the 4 and a half hours it was.  Got home.  Went to sleep, after over 48 hours awake.  Got up at odd hours, attempted to get back into the swing of things.  

It was an amazing trip, and if given the chance, I would definitely go back.
Have a great Sunday, and a wonderful week :)

New Delhi Part 1

After around 24 hours of traveling, no sleep, and pretty bad airplane food (better than usual though...), my dad and I arrived in New Delhi, India.  I was ready to collapse the moment I stood up.  We exited the plane, and made our way through baggage claim, and found the man who was to take us to our hotel.  To do this, you exit the building, and go outside.  The first thing that hit me was the smell.  It just smells different there.  Not in a bad way, like even in clean places, the smell is just different.  It's kind of a thick smell, a crowded one.  The second thing that hit me was the heat.  It was around 9 at night, and oh my god, it was around 90 degrees farenhight.  Yipes.  The last thing that hit me was the pollution.  Coming from a pretty polluted city, I didn't think that the pollution would bother me, but right away, my eyes started watering.   I mean, I got used to it, but it was just a constant thing.
We went to out hotel, and after showering (I hate the feeling of not being clean....eww) I basically passed out on my bed.
Waking up at around 4 or 5 in the morning the next day, we were out of the hotel to explore at around 9.  Mistake.  Nothing is open til like 11, and we went walking without water.  I hardly ever sweat, like I can play a 2 and a half hour softball game at catcher in 100+ heat, and barely break a sweat, but within 10 minutes, I was dying.  Also, exhausted still from travel.  Back to our hotel we went, and back to bed I crawled.
The next day in New Delhi, we had a guide and a car.  We headed off to Lal Kila, the Red Fort.  This place was immense.  The walls towered above you, and once inside, gardens spread out in front of you.  I could just imagine what the Red Fort had been in its day, even grander than now.  I wish I could tell you more of the history that the guide explained to us, but I just can't remember.  I really, really wish I could, but I can't.
We left the Red Fort, and headed to  Jami Masjid, the largest mosque in India.  To get there, we walked through the market, Chandni Chowk.  It was fascinating.  I don't know if you have seen the Harry Potter movies, but it looked kind of like Diagon Alley.  The picture I put with this post is from there.  The movement, the life, it was just so full of it.  Once we got to the mosque, it was quite different.  It was quiet, peaceful.  As I don't wear a burka, I had to borrow one from the mosque, as did most/all western women.  It didn't have the head covering part, and the only reasons I detested wearing it, were that it was my three least favorite things in clothing : 1. Pink. 2. A dress. 3.  Flowery.  Aiaiaiaiai.  A nightmare come to life.  ANYWAYS. Jami Masjid is the largest mosque in India.  I can't remember the number of people that can pray there, but it is over 30,000 I think.  It is a really beautiful building.  I would post more pictures with this, but I just got a new computer (YAY) and I am not uploading all of my 2,000 some pictures from India onto it. But it was beautiful, set in Old Delhi.

I'm not one to write long posts, so I will end New Delhi here, and do a part II soon!
Have a cheery weekend!!

Not much...

Not much new here...
Fun all-nighter at my friend's house the other night, with 2 of my friends, and her brother and his friend.  Jack-in-the-box at 1:30. Starbucks as soon as it opens; doesn't get much better than that (:

At the moment, I am packing for India.  We leave Monday. 
Later, I am going to a triple feature of Indiana Jones with my daddy at the Aero theatre.  That'll be fun.   I hope I can post from India.  If not, I am pretty sure I'll have a lot to say when I get back!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Harry Potter

Not exactly true to the book, but still, it was good.

See it.


Friday, July 10, 2009

you know i love you so (:

My favorite song. I love it. It has been stuck in my head all day. It didn't bother me one bit.

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do


Have a wonderful weekend.

ah.  I am SO TIRED. SO SO SO SO SO TIRED. LIKE DEAD TIRED. I am ready to collapse.  ARG.  Why?
This week, I did UCLA Softball Camp.  It was, in a word, awesome, but I am so exhausted.  This is ridiculous.  It was so fun.  I improved a lot.  My team was 'The Thrillaz' (MJ R.I.P) we were good.  Coached by Peanut, and Dana.  We rocked hard.  But seriously, this camp was bomb.  Jelly Sleber, Nikki Williams, Lisa Fernandez.  WOOT. Then Reese Witherspoon dropped by.  People freaked.  I was like big deal...
But it was an amazing camp, lots of memories, not much sleep.  We got yelled at for trying to have a party, I hit a triple off the wall at Easton Stadium, and our skit was great.  My friend that I went with, her skit was pretty funny.  Or at least she was.  Also, at the end of the skits, Puppy told a bunch of coaches to go do the stanky legg (at our team's request).  The coaches and a couple of players went up and did it.  It made my day.  
I got sunburned,  I have blisters on my feet, and bags under my eyes, but it was great.  Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July.

Family Decay

ehh. Posting it hear cuz it's the only creative thing I have done this week. It's ok... Not great thoughh

You left us.
That's it.
I'm not coming back you say.
Not even a backward glance
at the faces of the children you fathered.
None at all.

You left us here to decay.
Slowly it happened.
Slowly we fell apart.
Came undone.
Rusty in the ways of love
Scared to hold close
To something
For fear it too would leave us.
Leave us here broken.

The decay wasn't right away.
At first, all was fine.
Except for the the long nights
Full of hidden tears.
But soon.
But soon we slipped into
Our own little pathways.
We stood separated
A family no more.

Now we are decayed.
We are rusted.
Unable to love.
For the love that was ripped away.
Leaving us.
Leaving us here, scarred in ways
You will NEVER know.

We are a ruin.
We are the decay of a fairytale.
A fairytale once.
A long, long time

Kickin' it Summer 'o9

So it's summer. A lazy time, for lazy people. Like me! (:
I haven't been very creative in the writing sense. I did make some candles though. Well, not the wax part, but I decorated the sides.
I saw Transformers, sadly, not at the midnight showing as I had hoped, but a couple of days later. And then again last night with a bunch of friends. One of whom is moving to Australia, meaning I won't see her for at least 2 years. But we had fun.
Tomorrow, I plan to see a movie with some friends. What movie, we can't be quite sure. But as of now, I am thinking we are seeing the Hangover, the Proposal, Year One, or something else (:
Currently I am kickin' at my house with a friend. We are watching X-men, and eating oreos with ice cream. Aahh. The joys of summer....


p.s. I took/edited the picture. Those are my feet (:

This week...

So I will try to be creative and write something later this week but for now, I will just give a rundown on life.  I guess. Or whatever topic I roll into.
I just finished the book The Mercy of Thin Air by Ronlyn Domingue.  It was actually pretty good. Not my favorite book ever, but I've read worse.  I think I am going to read Pride & Prejudice next.  From what most of the world says, it's a pretty good book.  
School gets out the 19th, and I couldn't be more excited. Honestly I couldn't.  Beach day is next Monday, and that'll be fun.  Since it's the end of the year, everyone is trying work out their differences, and become friends again for that potentially amazing summer.  I get a new computer at the end of the summer. Which is good.  Like really really good.  
No homework for the rest of the year!! I am sooooo happy.
like really really really really really really happy.  The other weekend, I got really bored and watched the entire Lord of the Rings Extended Edition.  ALL OF THEM.  But I skipped the Frodo/Sam/Gollum scenes in the second and third except for the ending part of Return of the King. I have a life.  Just not on days when I get home from playing softball.
OH! And last night, I hit a homerun at practice.  It was pretty beastly.  
Other than that, I really don't know what to say right now, so I will just stop there.  Have a nice night!

But I hung out with my best friend and two other good friends, and had a great time. We went on the log ride. 7 times. In a row. It was pretty beastly. We got soaked. No joke. We were sopping. I pretty much died on the ride back, because some stupid idiots opened the windows on the bus, and wouldn't put them up. And freeway air and soaking wet me don't mix. When we were back at school, we proceeded to Vons and got hot soup. It was a nice day.

Pictures of You (pictures of Me)

It was the best day of her life.
It had to be. Nothing was better than this.
It couldn't be.
She could taste the happiness in her mouth.
The colors of the day.
The cool blues, and passionate reds.
The sweet greens, and the energetic yellows.

The soft scents
The strong ones

Nothing could feel better than wading through
the cold waves.
A smile on her face
As he stood on the shore
camera in hand,
and captured this rare moment
of totally and complete happiness.

Last week or the week before, I can't remember,
I said I had some new stuff to post.
And here we are.
With no new stuff to post.
The dumb blonde in me came out for a little afternoon stroll when
I was at the house of my mother.
I had just typed some new story and poem up on her computer in my account.
And then posted here.
And then I came home.
And then I remembered that the writing was on her computer.
And then I smacked my head on the desk.

So I am going to come up with some creativity real soon, hopefully today.

I wish I could say the same for my week.
The only good thing about this week is that I made $58.

I am on the edge.
Honestly, one more thing, and the person nearest me
is gonna be running for cover.

So maybe it'll all be better tomorrow
But for today
This is the best I've got.

First Look at the Taj Mahal

Guess where I'm going?
I can't believe my dad actually listened to me..... haha
I am so excited and can't wait for this summer!
Our flight is booked but we don't really have any other info yet, so I don't have that much to say about that....

I reread The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Loved it again. Read Way of the Peaceful Warrior. It was OK. I wrote my extra credit essays, and thought about posting them, but they were rather mediocre. I don't know...
The second week of break was interesting. I had to go with my mom, and we went to Yosemite. I was unprepared. I was rather cold. I got into a terrible argument with my mom, and finally let years of repressed anger fly. Well, almost all of it. We might have gone off the edge of a cliff if I had...  ANYWAYS... I saw a bear.  Two actually.  That was cool.  

I did home plate umpiring two weekends in a row, which is cool cuz I got a $2 pay raise.  WOOT.  My softball team won our game on Sunday, though I could have played better... My dad told me that the coaches said at the board meeting that I had the best work ethic on the team and was one of the best players! That made my day!

The first day back to school was ick.  It was 95 degrees, and no AC in classes.  Luckily we are swimming, so no outdoors sports to make us all sweaty.  But the indoors classes sure did.  

Oh yeah, and I also went to the Dodgers home opener.  Our yearly tradition.  My dad and I joke that it's our one religious holiday in the year.  And if they make the post season...

Lately I've been on a super peppy movie streak, and the most recent ones I've seen are: Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima (Letters was better IMO) and lastly, the one I just finished watching, Downfall.  Feel good movies of the year...MOST DEFINITELY.  (not)

It's really hot, and my room is the hottest room in the house, so I've decided to sleep on the couch tonight.  I'll have fun with that...

Wishing you a wonderful Monday night and an even better Tuesday!

Spring break. What a wonderful time of year. The weather is perfect, and all is right with the world.
Yesterday, I went to the beach with my best friend more like sister, and we played beach volleyball. Then it got 2 hot so we laid down on the beach and sort of went in the water. A phone call was received from my best friend more like sister's sort of boyfriend from Boston, and I took the opportunity to rub it in his face the fact that while we were lounging about on the beach in swimsuits in 80 degree weather, he was sitting on a bus in the rain coming home from his absurdly rich private school. And the fact that we have Manny. ;]
I was supposed to go to my friends show in Hollywood. But mi papa said no, too short notice and he didn't want me out at 2 in the morning in Hollywood. Oh well... he'll have more shows...
I think I shall take a bike ride to Venice tomorrow and meet some people there. Maybe get a Henna.
I will talk more about Henna some other time, and what it makes me think of and why that makes me sooo excited.
I must get back to supporting my boys playing is San Diego. They better beat the Padres. They must. I hope they win on Monday...
I love Russell and Manny!!!!!
 and btw the picture is photo credit to my best friend more like sister of me, edited by me!!
have a wonderful day!

No writing just blah blah blah

A lot of people are failing my science class, and my science teacher proposed that over break, if you would like to get an A on the notebook check that's worth a billion points, we could read and write an essay about The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and/or Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman.  The essays have to be about the book, some sort of response, but no specific rubric is used.  I have already read The Perks of Being a Wallflower,  and enjoyed it quite a bit.  I am going to read the other one, and write about both.  I am just not sure what to write about, because in English, we always have to write about like theme, character, blah blah blah.  So when given this little tiny bit of choice, I become stuck. Oh well... I will think on it...
Any ways... 
Today, some people came and did wrestling in P.E. and two students got to go as an example, and two of my best friends went up.  It was quite humorous and made my day (; lol
In my history class, my teacher was telling everyone to put an X on North Africa, and comes over to our table to make sure we are doing our work, because let's face it, my table is not the best behaved table in that class, and looks over one of my partner's shoulders (the one that got suspended for dealing) and points at his paper, and says, "That's Brazil *****" ahahahhahah.  Ok, you might have had to be there...
I am being kicked off the computer by an angry father, who just might break this laptop over my head if I don't close this in 10 seconds, so have a nice night!

The Innocent Can Never Last

***fiction with bits of reality***

I remember when Mommy and Daddy fought. I hid in the bathroom until they were done, and Mommy left, and Daddy was sitting on the stairs, head in hands, crying. I remember that's when Chris started going out with his friends, leaving me in the unloving house. I remember when Mommy came home, but left again, for good. I remember Daddy going to court. They gave Daddy full custody of us. I remember Chris saying that nobody had custody of him. I remember Mommy preaching to me. I remember crying to Daddy about it. I remember Daddy telling me to try to understand. Try to understand what she'd been through, how she'd sunk to the lowest of lows. I remember telling him I didn't care, that she should get lost and that everything was her fault. I remember waiting on the corner for Chris to pick me up. I remember him not coming, but I remember you waiting with me until 2 in the morning. I remember you yelling at him for showing up then, drunk and stoned. I remember him yelling at you for getting involved. I remember letting him. I remember the week Daddy went on a business trip. I remember that it rained and rained. I remember leaving the house full of stoners and drunks in the rain. I remember lying on the grass in the park. I remember falling asleep in the rain. I remember the way your hands gently brushed my face to wake me up and take me to your house. I remember the sweet scent in your room, and the smooth cotton on the bed. I remember how Chris didn't even notice. I remember when Daddy came home. I remember standing on the street, the wet street, waiting for him to take me home.

I don't believe in prayer, because I don't believe in a god. I believe in people, and that we can choose our own paths, and don't need a religion to guide us. I have nothing against people that are religious at all. In fact, I welcome that, because I love hearing other opinions, as long as they are not being preached at me. I have friends that are Muslim, Mormon, Baptist, Atheist, Jewish, Christian, Satanist, whatever. It's their lives, and they can choose to believe what they want to. It's not my problem. I don't pray. I hope and wish to the world.

The not-so-stolen kiss

Originally uploaded by la_sendi

Poem for English. It's ehh. Title?

I couldn't resist
Stealing a kiss
But then again,
It wasn't really stolen

Now I cannot deny
That I get lost in your eyes
But then again,
You guide me back home

So no way, no how
Is there anything better than now
But then again,
They say that love grows stronger

Not the greatest

Cherry Blossom Girl
Originally uploaded by Chrissie White

The world is odd, and I am mad, because my partner for a history project got arrested at school yesterday for dealing acid. Now I have to do the whole project by myself. I'm ready to blow, because my English teacher has wiped all the creativeness out of my system with this 1930s essay, and then she made my science teacher cry, and my math teacher is getting laid off. The drug bust at school yesterday was completely unexpected, because lately, they've been letting the pot heads slide, and were focusing on "cyberbullying". The school district, in partnership with the police, were watching the Santa Monica students activity and searching profiles for "cyberbullying" on Facebook. But there was a drug bust, and at least 5 people were arrested, and more were suspended/expelled. I'm in a bad mood. What sort of idiot would deal at school? On campus? My history partner, that's who.
On a lighter note, we kicked butt in our softball game today.
I might be able to kick the creativeness back into gear. I'll try.

oopsie daisies- did it again

bad habit #1: Procrastination

so much work.
so little time. 
way too much work.
we got our science teacher to complain to our english teacher about the work load
because the woman wouldn't listen to us
and she made our science teacher 
too much?
i think...
i have to write an essay in 30 minutes tonight.
and it has to be a good essay
and i am, to be frank,

oh well 
i can just fail......

How scientifical

As a fun assignment, our teacher let us make up our own elements, about us: what we "bond" with, what we are "reactive" with, and our uses.  Here is mine. ( try it! atomic number is birth month plus day: Feb 4 = 6 atomic weight is your birthday plus you favorite number: Feb 4, and 7 so 24.07)




This element bonds well with dark chocolate, softball, candles, music, particularly that of a guitar, soccer players, laughter and sleeping.   Blondeium is highly reactive with losing, getting up early, the Jonas Brothers, mean softball coaches that are obsessed with running, cooking, and being tickled.  This element is discovered 98% of the time buried deep beneath the covers of a comfortable bed, or working hard on a softball field.  Blondieum's uses are many, but its most common uses are helping small children play the game of softball, butchering the ancient art of making Mac & Cheese, and the comforting of friends that are in need

i'm such a nerd. but hopefully this will bring my science grade up. on my last test i got a 22/40. yipes.

the math of love

Ok, so in math, the whole school had to make "Acute Valentines" Get it? Like acute angels? Haha.
You had to write a valentine to anyone and use math terms in a logical and creative way.
Here is mine!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Love,
Whoever said "Opposites attract", obviously had not observed this equation that is you and me.  If I am x and you are y, the x plus y equals  us.  Our friends call this love irrational and think that it will reach its closure soon, but don't worry, my love for you is a hundred percent.   From the first time I caught you trying to evaluate the expression on my face, I could tell that our love would grow to be exponential. Your face and smile are only two factors of the infinite number of things that I love about you.  The probability of you and I, I would say, is very, very high.
Your Not So Secret Admirer <3

valentine's day

Originally uploaded by tonymadrid

I haven't written much in the last week, especially since my dad took my computer and grounded me. I really couldn't think of anything to write about, so I am just gonna write.

Where's your Valentine? you ask. I don't know, I say. Except I know exactly where he is. And that is not here. He is miles and miles away. And I know I sound pathetic for saying that. But whatever. I really hate Valentine's Day. Is that ironic, for someone to hate a holiday about love? I don't know. And the funny thing is, that this year, I shouldn't hate it this year, because my Valentine has a Valentine, and that Valentine is me. So really I am being ungrateful, hating this holiday and all, because at least I have a Valentine. Ok. Now I'm rambling, which is never good.
I think later I will post my math Valentine, because I have to go. The worst part about being grounded, I think, is that my dad makes me clean my room.... oh well.......

broken glass
Originally uploaded by cdw9

Well, I wrote something finally. Not exactly what I usually write, but I've been told to write about my emotions. So whoop-dee-dee. I wrote about my emotions.

You know that feeling, right? The one where you honestly couldn't care less if you chuck a priceless Ming Dynasty vase at the wall? The one where calling a person every swearword ever used and a thousand unused ones isn't enough? The one where you could punch through a thick wooden door? The one where you wouldn't feel bad about ripping your oldest teddy bear's leg off?
Come on, you have to know this feeling.
ANGER, for those who are a bit on the slow side. Fury. Rage. Outrage. Pissed the hell off.
And you know the funny part about it is, anger is more often than not induced by those you care the most about.

I am going to write a small follow up on this about honesty (the pros and cons)
The day before my birthday is a wonderful day to get in a fight.....

Honestly, I am swamped. I am not helping myself by doing this, but if I continued to work on school related BS i think I would crack a plate over my head.
SOO MUCH WORK. Ugh. I think I might've posted about this before, but it never hurts to reinforce. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. JUST DON'T DO IT.
Semester grades come out soon.
I already know I have a B+ in English. I might as well not go home...

Good Luck!

Barack Obama
Originally uploaded by baonguyen

I think that today, no matter what your race, religion, nationality, political party, you can realize that something tremendous has occurred. Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as President of the United States of America. In my opinion, (and I believe my opinion to be right) Obama is an amazing man. His words are so strong and powerful, they brought a friend of mine, a teenage boy, to tears.
"And so, to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and we are ready to lead once more."
In my community, almost everyone is a democrat, and most everyone is a liberal. Most of us have been utterly ashamed of our country these last few years. Today, I was, for the first time in a long time, proud to call myself American.  

The road ahead will be difficult, but I am sure that, yes, he can do it.  My best wishes to Barack, Michelle, Sasha, and Malia Obama.

October Carnival

Another Dizzy Carnival Ride
Originally uploaded by Bluesmile:)

Prompt "Carnival"
Fairly pleased with it.  First non-poetry writing I've done in a while

October Carnival

"FASTER FASTER FASTER!" screamed Dylan.
"THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!" yelled Aidan.
"SHUT UP!" shouted Molly

TORNADO shot up into the dark October sky, and the rainbow colored compartments spun out to the sides. The speed increased, satisfying Dylan's demands. The wind blew past them so hard, that Aidan's azure eyes began to water, and Molly's blonde hair fanned out behind them.

"WEEEEEE!" screamed Molly, grabbing the two boy's hands, and reaching for the sky. Dylan released the popcorn bag he had been tightly clutching in his right hand, and it was whipped out of sight, down to the lingering kids below.

TORNADO turned, and the three teenagers slid to the left. Laughing, Molly fell on to Dylan, as Aidan fell on her. They swung back up, and suddenly, Dylan was falling on Molly, while she was falling on Aidan. As the colors whipped by, Aidan pointed with his free hand, to a bunch of seventh-grade girls who were giggling at the half-full bag of popcorn that had landed on a good-looking eighth-grader's head.

Soon, they were gone from sight. The ride began to slow, and Molly, Dylan, and Aidan stumbled off, the two boys laughing as she skipped around the basketball courts, tripping over her own feet. The two boys ran after her as she bounded up the steps of a jumbo slide, and went tumbling right behind her as she went down it. All three of them landed in a tangled heap at the bottom, shaking with laughter. As they got up, Molly planted a kiss on each cheek, and pulled them after her as she ran to picnic tables set up by the food stands. The trio collapsed onto the benches, and Aidan grabbed a new bag of popcorn off the tray of a passing couple. Dylan and Molly were giggling as they dug into the warm and buttery goodness.

"Let's go," suggested Dylan, after every last piece of popcorn had been consumed.
They moved over to the field at the edge of the basketball courts, and sank down onto the grass, looking up at the black sky, light by neon lights, breathing in the smells of popcorn and an October Carnival.

Elegy to Our Friendship

--- Beacause I am... Forgive me ---
Originally uploaded by ¸.•*J A B E Z¸.•*

The day seems so much longer
Without you by my side
Harder to take every blow
Every stab that wounds my pride

You were there to dry my tears
Face the things that I could not
Your smile chased the pain away
The way you went was so abrupt

So the day will be longer
A little bit less fun
But life is full of ones that go
And there are plenty still to come

Finally, my English teacher passed those poems back. FINALLY
There is another poem I might post, and I saw a picture on flickr that I thought was interesting and maybe, just maybe, my inspiration might be on the way back. ;)

almost there[:
beautiful song. his speeches are so beautiful.
"in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false, about hope"
he is a wonderful orator.
just remembered this video today,and have been looking for it to download.

have a wonderful weekend (i won't as i am still uninspired AND i have to go to my mothers)
almost there (:


Sunday, January 4, 2009


really, I want to write.  really badly.  I am just so ridiculously uninspired.  it's never been this difficult.  i am attributing this to the fact that i dislike writing poetry on the computer.  narratives, essays, fine.  i just really dislike writing poetry on the computer.  and writing it out by hand is turning out to be difficult, as I am right-handed, and my right hand is in a cast, thumb included.  it just makes writing a pain. but the cast is to be off soon (hopefully).  
it could be that i just don't feel very productive.  i got a load of new books for Christmas, but have decided to re-read the Harry Potter series.  I read book six, then seven, then one, two, and i am currently on three.  i started this 3 days ago.  
but my dad and i finished that Beatles puzzle, so that's something.  and i did hang out with my friends at the promenade in the cold for 5 hours.  but it was fun.  oh, and i was forced to clean my room.  that took up a couple days of break.  and i couldn't sleep last night, so i cleaned out the desk in my room.  still not going to use it though....
school starts again tomorrow.  i really don't want to wake up at seven.  that'll be the earliest i've gotten up in in 2 weeks.  the last week i've been sleeping past noon.

Happy 2009

Hugging the Earth

I love this picture. Don't you?
You know, like the future of the planet. Hope. Change. The youth. Us.

2009 should be a big year. It seemed like something more should have been felt when the second came that no longer was it 2008. But no. Just like any other New Year's, HAPPY NEW YEAR! was shouted, and then everyone wound down. I don't know. Just seemed like it should have been more, because 2009 looks to be a year a great change.
Oh well.

I have resolved to not make to many resolutions.
1. Write more
2. Study more
3. Don't run backwards

There we go.
I spent New Years Day watching the replay of the rose parade, thinking 'these things are so cool, but i am soooo glad my dad insisted i be here instead of with my mom, because she would have dragged me to this.' and watching the rose bowl.
And rereading Harry Potter and the Half- Blood Prince at the same time. Football isn't one of my biggest interests.
Feeling crappy again.
At least I didn't spend this New Year's Day in the ER.

Anyways, I wish you a wonderful 2009.
