I don’t think we realise just how fast we go until you stop for a minute and realise just how loud and how hectic your life is, and how easily distracted you can get.

This week was long. And really that’s the best way to describe it. Why is it that the first half of the school year practically disappears before our eyes, but the second half moves at a snail’s pace? You could see on the faces of my fellow classmates that I was not the only one who has felt the severe shift it pace. Eyes look hollow, cheeks sag, and everyone walks like they’re zombies. In the words of a friend in my history class, everyone is so used to staying up ‘till six and sleeping ‘till noon that we can’t handle the early mornings. I’ll just be glad to get my semi normal sleeping patterns back.

There is both sad and happy news floating through our school hallways. One of the most perverted and twisted guy’s in our grade is switching to online school starting after the end of first semester. Girls and boys alike rejoice at this discovery. But on the other hand, one of my close friends is also going to be homeschooled in a few weeks. Apparently, he got caught not only dealing, but smoking Marijuana the Friday before Christmas break. I don’t know how many times I’ve tried to get him to stop this nasty habit; not only for his sake, but for everyone around him, but her just refuses to listen. His parents, of course, flipped out and are convinced that the school is to blame. What sucks more than that is his parents are so strict that he has no cell-phone, no email, technically he’s not allowed to have a facebook either, but he made an account without their knowledge, and they would freak if they knew that he was even friends with girls, so I have virtually no way to keep in contact with him. My only hope is that this seclusion will have a positive effect on his attitude toward drugs. There are other, more tragic news yet, but I will not put that here for the sake of the friend it pertains to.

Aww yes, well if I thought it was a busy week last week, this week is going to be even worse. The end of the first semester is next Thursday I think, not sure though, and so the play for my drama class is on this Thursday at 7 and I have to be there at six.  So on Tuesday and Wednesday I have to rehearse from six to nine pm. Which means that I have two hours in between that and when I get home at four to do my homework, eat, shower, and do my hair. O_o I have a feeling that either my hair is gonna suck those days, or I’ll be delaying half of my homework until morning. More than likely it will be the latter. Then on Friday we perform the play for the entire school during 2nd and 6th periods. In English I’m going to have an essay to write, and in math I have a major test, plus all the studying for next week’s finals.  Also, I have to do a debate over child labor in history and my teacher thought I was the best one in our group to do two things, so not only do I have to argue against someone, but I also have to create a closing statement in five minutes. *hyperventilates* I hate public speaking.  So basically, I will be getting absolutely zero sleep.

What have I done this weekend? Writing, writing, and more writing. I wrote the first draft of that essay, I worked a little bit on adding to Out of the shadows, and editing the first fifty pages of that for my CW final project. I have my cover picture for that book too!Out of the Shadows Cover

Oo, and then I also came up with an idea for my next novel! I can’t wait to start working on it! Yes, and last night I watched two movies with my sister; Date Night (Hilarious, thrilling, awesome) and Flipped (Sweet, funny, romantic). In other words, they were both really good.  My new favorite song (I forgot to mention.)  is Raise your glass by Pink.  It is awesome!  And last Sunday my mom cut my hair so that I have bangs and…….. hold the drum roll please…….. my dad actually liked it! I was shocked, he has never liked bangs before.

Basically I won’t have time to post until next weekend. That is unless I can get on during one of my sleepless nights. *sigh*

So until next time, thanks for reading and Keep on dreaming &*)
