16 Reasons

Inspired by Nora's birthday gift to me, here's a list of 16 reasons why I loved today and my party.

  1. Tessa's foreign exchange student was the first person to wish me happy birthday on Facebook. Nivétha Guna!
  2. Was yelled at by Courtney when I arrived at school. She wanted to wish me a happy birthday.
  3. People in biology were psyched that it was my birthday. For some unknown reason.
  4. My whole Spanish class seemed to know that it was my birthday.
  5. The stuck up Cutaway people in video wished me a wonderful birthday. It's quite an accomplishment for them to look down from their perch atop their self made alters to wish an underling, like me, a happy birthday.
  6. The funny hallway incident that involved Matt and Zach. I just need to tell you in person.
  7. Maher came to the party and proceeded to scar Gretchen. JK, she's all good.
  8. Wendy was able to come and I think got along with everyone. Including me.
  9. Got out of watching the movie because of Tess's dad. Cake time!
  10. Got Schindler's List from Mikaela. You have no idea how happy this made me!
  11. Blew out all the candles, no boyfriends to worry about.
  12. Had fun playing in fire with Sonia and Mikaela.
  13. Had, by far, the best gift turn out ever. I could really tell people wanted to give me something great, and they all succeeded.
  14. Met Nora's kitty after everyone left.
  15. It started to rain.
  16. Mom and Dad are gone tomorrow so that means Cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Ah, what a wonderful life.

Btw: Here is the safety video.

What do those stand for? What are the letters above meant to say? Well A Very Potter Musical of course!

Today while looking at the Harry Potter Status day on facebook (it's gonna be May 2ed) I saw a weird post on the discussion board. It made no sense and I was sure I had never read about space ships in any of the seven books, especially when the quote was one that Draco Malfoy said.


"Now you're just being cute. I can't go to Pigfarts. It's ON MARS. You need a rocketship. Do you have a rocketship, Potter? Yes, you do. You know, not all of us inherited enough money to buy out NASA when our parents died. Look at this! It's Rocketship Potter! Star Kid Potter, Moon Shoes Potter, traversing the galaxy for intergalactic travels to Pigfarts!" -Draco Malfoy, AVPM. AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGG

So, I had no idea what was going on (much like you have no idea what I'm talking about) but being the person I am, I googled it and came upon an youtube video of the musical. It's quite amazing! Check it out right here --> AVPM

So, today I decided to google The Heathers. Meghan and Tessa are always talking about this amazing movie that they've seen, and Courtney and I just sit there not understanding anything.

After reading the plot outline on Wikipedia I was kinda' interesting/scarred. Who does that? Who kills people with out knowing it? Veronica (a.k.a. the main character) (a.k.a. the girl from Beetlejuice) must be very stupid.

Then I thought, hey why don't I look a some of the clips on youtube? Instead what I found was somebody had put the whole movie (in parts) online. I then clicked on Heathers Movie Part 6.

Fuck me gently with a chainsaw. What in the world are you guys watching?!?!?!?!!!?

Seriously, see for yourself. It's messed up.

Things to ponder about:
  • Carpooling with Mari
  • SAT or ACT
  • Summer Job
  • Birthday Party
  • Hacky Sack Kids (I heard Meghan)
  • Lack of car (sorry, I'm not getting one)
Goodness, I have way to much to think about.....

The Cure

After the past week I feel stupid for not trying it sooner. Just listening to Halo/Walking On Sunshine mix by Glee I feel so much better.

True, I'm supposed to be studying for my vocabulary test, but hey.

I miss people, staying at home is not good for me. Sure, I love my family, but I think they're getting on my nerves. I told Mom today that I don't want any presents for my birthday. When she asked why I couldn't think of any other reason except that I was annoyed with them. I didn't answer that way thought. I said it was because I didn't want them to spend money on useless things. It was kinda' funny seeing the look on Mom's face. I'll apologies later, but for now I'll pretend that my relationship with my parents is 'bad'. (that made me giggle)

You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime you'll find
You get what you need
Don't tell me not to fly, I simply got to
If someone takes a spill, it's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade

Antarctica Or Bust

I hate allergies.

I've decided, after this past week, I will hurt the inventor of allergies.

You all now know why I hate spring, because it's lovely allergy season. Why must my birthday month fraternize with the enemy? This is not just oh hi spring I really don't like you. It's more like I hate you.

I was feeling a bit better this morning because of this new allergy medication I got, (which was why I wasn't in school) but I started feeling bad again during the afternoon. I ended up not going to Austin's (Ragan's younger brother) birthday party. There was lots of crying involved in the car, while on the phone with Nora, in the car again, in the garage, and in my bedroom where I was held tenderly by Gretchen. (she was simotaniously playing the Sims 3.....)

The day was going badly until I watched the 2ed season finale of NCIS with commentary. Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, and John Kelley. (a.k.a Tony, Abby, and one of the shows writers) Ah, it ended on a good note.
Don't you think Timothy McGee kinda' looks like my dad, in a way.

Letters Home Part 2

Dear Hannah,
Darling, we have so much fun on the bus! Sadly today I was completely killed in the voice department and you had to uphold a one sided conversation. The good thing is, just like with Courtney, I can sit in silence with you for hours and not feel agitated. That is a rare thing to find in a friend, a rare thing indeed.

Dear Mikaela (a.k.a the newest member of Mr. Wevers Science Class),
Yes, his room smells, a lot. If you would just see some of the things he does in there, it would give you the shivers. The creepy thing is that he's dissected a bear on the tables a long with a cat and a few other wild animals. I guess I'm just used to the smell, but when you brought it up man could I smell it! Also, your little Madeline post was the best thing in the whole wide world! I adore (and always have) Madeline. I have the little doll and books and everything, oh! So cute! (also, if you're having trouble finding me a gift, think along the lines of a special move we were talking about, one I've never seen.....)

Dear Tess,
I loved the skirt you were wearing today. I have the same one, great minds think a like. Also, are you coming to the party? I think I might have asked you, but I can't be sure.....any who! OMG! Did Courtney tell you that Hannah, myself and her watched Breakfast At Tiffany's? They both loved it (duh!) and It reminded me of when I first watched it with you! If only you would have been there to watch you favorite movie with us!

Letters Home

Dear Meghan,
Your sweatshirt is quite comfortable, I received a lot of complements today. Either the people complemented me or they were confused because I was wearing both of your shirts. Mom and Gretchen both told me they didn't remember it. Mom (before I explained everything) stood up for you and told me to "give it back to Meghan". So, gracias!

Dear Courtney,
Been there done that. Don't get caught up in it all, I'm very happy for you, but I don't want you to....Ferris Bueller says it perfectly: If this keeps going on, the first girl he(she) sleeps with he's(she's) gonna marry. Also, I think you'ed like this poem: Love many, Trust few, Always paddle your own canoe! It describes you in three lines. Lastly, you're horoscope says: your best day ever will be on April 30th 2010.

Dear Tessa,
I really enjoyed your little post, so that's why I'm copying it. But think of it as a complement. Man, I miss you at lunch. Were talking all about Hitler now....great lunch topic.....oh what joy! I have recently become obsessed with the little ë things so much to the point where I am day dreaming about how I could make my illegitimate kids names work with it. Yea, I need help.

Dear America,
This remind you of anyone?

A Creepin'

After debating for a long while I told myself to just screw the note and leave.

I had walked in on Mari taking a nap in her room (In my defense her Grandma let me in!) and all I wanted were the props I had brought over on Monday for filming.

Five minutes later (five minutes long then needed) I started to hoist the two bags and tripod into my arms when Mari awoke.

Okay, have you even taken an afternoon nap? When you wake up from them you're kinda' groogy and not quite back into the real world, well that's what Mari was like.

She had an imprint from the pillow on one side of her face and her eyes were squinted from either the bright light or because she couldn't believe I was really standing in her bedroom.

L: ummm....hi your grandma let me in
M: ....
L: i was just grabbing my stuff you know this isn't the weirdest situation i've ever been in
M: ....
L: well i hope i didn't wake you up just go back to sleep
M: ...okay

Then I walked down the carpeted stairs, out the glass door, and back towards my house.

Need Something?

Walking up the sidewalk reminds me of my childhood. My theory is that everything changes except for the Spevak's House, and because of my anti-adaptable outlook on life, I love that house.

People tend to be surprised when they find out we live right next door. How else would two totally different people remain such good friends? Mari and I joke about our houses a lot. I could be in my bedroom and in less then a minute in hers, but we always tell each other to bring a snack along during our long walks to and from.

But the best part about the house is what's in it. The outside can look a little disheveled and Dad is constantly whining about their boat, but once inside it's like you've entered Narnia.

If you can't find something, go to the Spevak's and you'll find it. Believe me. Need a huge sombrero? They have it, even though none of them have been out of the country. How about a masquerade mask? Take your pick, they have tons. Looking for an oil lamp? Just ask and they'll provide.

So, today when I walked into Mari's bedroom all the worries from this week washed away. Especially when I heard Mari snoring and that my friends is a whole other story....

Video Phone

"How am I supposed to get out?" I ask Mrs.Drew once Kelsie, Jordan, and Bailee are finished making the room into a makeshift classroom.

She laughs, and by what she's told me during the past fifteen minutes, she needs it.

I resort back to my old ways. Pushing my backpack off the chair I use it as leverage and hoist myself up onto the table. Everyone watches as I make my way down the two tables and lightly jump off the end.

"Carefu-" Bailee can't even get out her warning before I hit the carpet.

My thoughts are far away from the classroom now. I'm on a mission. I need a kleenex.

I'll Tell You

What I Want What I Really Really Want

Normally I'm opposed to telling people what I want for birthday's or Christmas, but what am I supposed to say to the age old question: What do you want?

Hannah and I had a conversation about this on the bus awhile back. We both agreed that making a list made us feel selfish and that if a person gives us a present without having to ask what we want means so much more.

But, because people have asked, here's my list.

  1. Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult (I believe that Hannah has already called dibs on this one)
  2. ipod cover (I have an ipod classic, like Meghan, and something to protect the ipod and if it has a holder/belt thing, even better. That way I can hook it to something while I run. EDIT: I was told to write that someone has claimed this one.)
  3. Glee season one part one DVD (it's cheep at wallmart)
  4. gift cards (not a huge fan of them, but if you must Target and Border's are a safe bet)
Now, I promise that I will not (under any circumstances) look at the comments under this post, so call things or discuss things over blog comments and what not....

And I will not think less of you're gift if it is from this list. I promise.

I don't mean to creep on people's houses, I just happen to jog past them. When I made up my path (which is 1.6 miles long) I just wanted to jog on streets I knew, you know, incase I got lost.

I had walked by Courtney's and Meghan's house without so much of a peep. Well, I never see anything going on at Courtney's. One time I saw Molly standing in the doorway at Meghan's house. Tessa's is usually quite too.

Until today.

I had my fist run in with her. Well I guess it was more a fast walk and it was with Zoey more then Tessa. I was walking, jamin' to my tunes, when I see Zoey on her leash and it takes me a second to realize Tessa and Christian are lounging out on the step. I say a brief hello, pet Zoey and then I'm off.

It was nice seeing you Tessa.

Do you sing in the shower? I know for a fact I do and (for me) it's not whatever I happen to have on my mind at the time, instead I have specific songs I sing. Don't ask me why, it's just always been like this.

Songs I Sing In The Shower
Gretchen recently snuck in on me singing in the shower. I about fell over when she started clapping after my rendition of Reflection. Eh, at lest she didn't boo.

Thursday, April 15, 2010


I just figured, por que no? Right.....

I like when Gretchen bakes cookies
like running after school
like putting the last period on an essay
like writing with pens
like correcting test in class and seeing that the person I'm correcting has made a mistake
like the way my eyes gloss over after I'v read a good book
like talking with Hannah on the bus
like not even knowing where were going for my birthday (you're just as clueless as me)
like walking in the dark with Deni, Gretchen, and Jack
like testing out my shoes to see if I can tap in them
like having an inside joke with my Grandma
like the way Nora's house smells.

I love the way I feel right after watching a good movie
I love finding things in common with people

I hate writing essays
I hate awkward lunches
I hate when Mom looks serious
I hate when Courtney sings along with a song she just herd for the first time
I hate that Nora's German (her only fault)
I hate that Gretchen has to sleep with a fan on
I hate commercials
I hate people who think they can be directors when they really aren't

"Truth, you see, is in the eye of the beholder." - Jordan McAfee (The Pact)

Avi is one of my favorite authors. He wrote the book Nothing But The Truth. I read it in fifth grade and was mesmerized by the quotation on the first page: Do you swear to tell the whole truth, the truth, and nothing but the truth so help you god?

I still think of that quote today. I have it memorized, word for word, and tend to find myself saying it under my breath every so often. I also think I'm very smart because the quote is the oath they ask you to take before you go up on a witness stand in court.

But, what I think really made me remember the quote was the quote underneath it. Does anyone say no?

My Hero!


I'm going to model a character in one of my award winning films after her.

"I don't want to be shot of he's the one to bring a gun to school!"

Today during A lunch we sat at our regular table and Tessa decided to be a good person, unlike the rest of us. She asked us if she could invite this guy to sit with us. He's in two of her classes and the poor guy was sitting by himself.

I felt like crap when she asked. I would never have the guts to do something like that, and Tessa does it in a way where she doesn't seem like a creeper who has to do all this charity work, instead she makes fun of Jews and then she invites people to sit with us at lunch.

Long story short, the guy respectfully declined, but I think he was flattered. Good Job Tessa, and thanks for the CD's!

¿Dondé? (where)

"Let's go to Germany!"

", hello, Nazis."

"Not all Germans are Nazis! Anyway, let's dance the polka, let's go to Russia!"

"Can you play the accordion?"


"You play the accordion and dance the polka."

"Oh, no."

I have some of the most meaningful conversations with Bliss. This one happened to be about where the secret destination is for my birthday party. So, where would you go for your 16th birthday party?

You Can't Catch Me!

The dream

getting up from my bed i dash around my room looking for my grey shorts, the ones i use for exercising, or at lest what i call exercising, not in the nora sense of the word. i don't remember the shirt i pulled on, it might of been my nike shirt. then after i situated everything i look out from behind my curtains and am met with darkness. i sadly have to wait until morning to go on a jog.

The reality

with my back facing my house i click play on my ipod and slowly start to jog my way down the street. i pass a father and son playing in the front yard and a guy tending to his grass. by the corner i have a side ache, the memories of many soccer games spent running with side aches flash before my eyes and i slow down to a walk. i guess i'll have to work towards running.

Do you think your dreams are messages that you or someone else left for you? Almost like an answering machine. I dream a lot, I guess my subconscious really loves to talk.

Per Request

This is for Tessa, and everyone else can suffer through it.

J'espère que vous pouvez comprendre ce que j'écris. Au moins ce n'est pas l'espagnol!

Bonjour mon nom est Liz, comment êtes-vous? Je suis bon. C'est la vie, c'est la guerre, c'est la pomme de terre. Et c'est tout ce que je sais.

Okay, if you really must know, just google translate it.

And some escargo (a.k.a snails) to make it more French!

Nurture is Nature

I log onto the computer right before I hop into bed and I see this:

i have an odd urge to suddenly bear children. and to name them after the characters i like in certain books.

Not only does the post (titled Atticus and Adah) freak me out, but the comments are going to give me nightmares.

This all started on Tuesday. First hour I have math and some girls were talking about what they wanted to name their kids. To quote them they didn't want 'main stream' names. Well I vote they names their kids after an inanimate object and call it good. Heck, that's how the celebrities do it, just grab the thing closets to you and that's your kids name.

You should all know I don't want to have children. I really don't understand why more people aren't in my club, who wants to birth a giant watermelon. Oh, and what else comes out.....I think I might puke....

Then it reminded me of Gilmore Girls. Good old Rory and Lane!

First Hour: Math

I have absolute no friends in this class, so I creep on others conversations. Sadly today I heard this one girl say, "I feel like something really bad is going to happen today."
And if you all remember that same sentence started the worst day of my life two months ago. See post titled dear group.

Second Hour: History

I was unanimously voted to be the group leader, which I thought was very cool. The whole class thought I wold be a good leader of France.

Third Hour: Biology

Finished book work, which is a huge accomplishment.

Fourth Hour: Spanish

I thought I would be able to get through the day with nothing going wrong, but I cut my tung on a sucker, and I have to present a skit on Friday. Not cool.

Fifth Hour: English

Presented my poem, could of done better, but I think I got a good grade.

Sixth Hour: Cutaway (a.k.a. video)

Watched some funny videos. Kayla let me in on a really mean prank that she was going to play on Meheer. I kinda' feel bad for the poor guy. Sure I want him to go play in traffic, but Kayla was just being mean.

So, did I have a bad day? No, but I was paranoid.

Egg Ache

Gretchen made this......

I think I feel sick.

Open Delight or Pleasure

On Thursday, My life changed. I blame Meghan.

Sure, I had seen so many commercials about the new show Glee and Kayla and Meheer won't shut up about it, but I just didn't find it appealing. Then last week Meghan decided to start posting videos and one of them just happened to be about Glee.

One thing lead to another and I found myself asking Hannah if I could borrow the DVD. I don't think i've ever been so excited about a TV show, not even this years NCIS premier. Wednesday and Thursday night I really didn't get much sleep.

The best part, Dad loves it more than me.

Best quote: I could be wearing sunglasses and you wouldn't know I was looking at you're boobs.
Second best quote: That Rachel girl makes me want to set myself on fire, but she's good.

Not 'Hatin' On Meghan

Let me tell you about Meghan.

Unlike most of my friends I don't remember the day I met her. I know that sounds bad, but in truth it really explains who Meghan is as a person.

We went to the same elementary school and junior high, now the same high school. After becoming 'bus buddies' (along with Courtney and Tessa) I truly figured her out. Another words, there isn't enough space on any blog to fully explain to you what Meghan is.

Simply, Meghan is one of my best friends, and if I didn't have her I would have two betta fish killing each other, which I assure you is a bad thing. I would have no one to sit with on the bus, and I would only have half of my music on my ipod.

But most importantly I wouldn't have one of the best friends I could ever have.

So, Meghan, just stop over thinking and chill. I'm not mad and never was and Gretchen thinks you're cool.

Thursday, April 1, 2010

You Will!

Talking with Gretchen after school today we realized that we have a really good relationship. Sure, we get into little fights, but we'd punch anyone who makes fun of the other. So, for those of you who are thinking about 'wronging' me, beware. Gretchen packs a mean bite....or whatever the saying is.

Also, I'm thinking about telling her to get a blog. She had one, a really long time ago, and she knows I have one. Yea, she creeps on me on the computer. Any fest tonight. It was kinda' funny that Tessa and Courtney look so hurt when I told them about it were as Meghan didn't care when they pretended to shoot me.....

p.s. Meghan, Gretchen doesn't not like you. I asked her.

p.p.s Tessa, Kayla (my video partner) loved the Blue Van's song. I told her that you gave it to me.
