Last Monday when the Blog-A-Thon first started we were talking before my fifth hour class and she seemed so excited for it. That excitement made me excited and, it seemed, even Courtney excited. So, thanks for being your happy lovely self.
Congratulations, go ahead and put this lovely award on your blog.
In the post she compares others thoughts on love and hate with her own. Through this she is able to come to a conclusion that satisfies her own thoughts, truly deeply thinking. "We all carry hatred within us, let's not pretend otherwise." Her words are almost shakespearian with double meanings and a poetic flow leaving you wanting to read more.
Congratulations, go ahead and display this lovely award on your blog.
Each and every picture she post (which is a lot) is perfect in their own way. Especially when doing the prompts she was able to find great pictures that fit perfectly. An accomplishment that is quite hard to come by.
Congratulations, go ahead and display this lovely award on your blog.
This post was my personal favorite because of the picture, it just makes me laugh each time. But it wouldn't work with out the words she put with it. "another negative aspect of my mom's cooking skills, she's a weensy eensy weensy meenie miney moe lover full of herself."
The words she spews show us how much she really loves food. Both of her parents have distinctly different cooking abilities, her dad thinks he can cook and her mom almost was once on at TV cooking show. Perfect, just perfect.
Congratulation, go ahead and display this lovely award on your blog.
In her post she list many different things about her life that she love and that she hates. The most meaningful is "i hate being told my dog has some sort of incurable, very painful stomach cancer. i hate hearing that surgery is not an option because it's too close to her spine. i hate the way my mom told us. i hate her dramatic/immature nature. i hate knowing Ally has maybe a year left. i...hate it."
Her simple (but precise) words show you how much she loves her dog, but hates what's happening to her. Just what I was looking for with the prompt Love and Hate.
Any who, I want to thank everyone who participated in the Blog-A-Thon and give each of you a little gift.
This is a blog trophy of sorts that you can display on the side bar of your blog (or anywhere) by adding a picture gadget. This award goes to anyone who participated in the past weeks events.

That is something I use to define myself. We learned about it last year in AP, we define ourselves against certain things to see what we are not so we know what we are. I don't remember the word, but the definition stuck with me.
To be an European for a day would be interesting. So many accents to choose from and plus you are loved by Americans no matter what. Say something with that accent and you have them, seriously, at hello.

Today's prompt is titled Doctor Who, which really just means what type of doctor would you want to be if you could be any. You already have a super smart brain and money is no object, so what kind would you like to be?

I can't wait for this summer, and the book I'm reading right now is not helping my school blues.
I also can't wait for video tomorrow. I wrote the whole script tonight and I'm kinda' pumped. I hope the rest of the class likes what I did.
Most of all I can't wait until Courtney get's back. I really enjoyed our talk/water fight yesterday.
What do you think the future will hold? What will you do? You get a chance to predict the future, what do you see? What don't you see?
What does that word, future, mean to you?

Where are the tripods? Can I sign this out? When are we going to start? What's the new project? Can you show me how?
But when were in our own little groups, doing our own little thing (such as planning the next project) we need to ask questions.
What do we want to go for? Who will be in it? Who's gonna film? Can we check out a video camera? Do you want to edit? Does this make sense?
Especially when editing, questions arise.
How do you set a scratch disk? Render? Where did my project go? What did you save it as? How can I make this move? Where did you find that video filter? How come it won't import? Do you like this? Where is the voice over button again? What if I want to change the color?
Today, we started a whole class movie as our final project for the year. Mary came up with the idea and Mrs. Drew just rolled with it. Then she set us free.
Who's gonna be the director? Me?

Maybe the real question here is, do either of them cook?
Or maybe there is a underling women vs. men problem here. Do you think women have it worse then men? Do you care at all?

The feeling of the grass between my toes and the smell of wet asphalt. My body feels like it's swimming, the air is so thick I would need a butter knife to cut it.
A rustle from behind me makes me jump. Turning I make more noise then I wanted. The squirt gun is raised above my stomach and a crack allows water to flow slowly down my arm and tickle my arm pit.
The shock from the instant cold temperature freezes me, but only for a second. Soon I'm pumping and firing back at the opponent. My eyes sting from the water dripping from my hair and soon I'm forced to close them.
Blurred vision allows me to see my teal toe nail polish and purple swim shorts. The oncoming water ceases and I take the minuscule amount left in the super soaker and let it cascade over my head and body.
The last few moments outside are wonderful I love them, walking into the ice frozen house soaking wet is what I hate.
This one is pretty self explanatory, what do you love and what do you hate, or who, or really another way those two words can be applied in this situation. Anywho, I'm looking for the best 'off the bat' post today so, maybe a prize will be in store for somebody!

So, being the person I am, I have come up with a solution. A blog-a-thon! Doesn't that sound fun?
Who ever wants to participate can, but once you start you have to make a pact to not stop. This is a pure self promise thing. I'm not making anyone sign on the dotted line. Just if you're maybe kinda' interested comment below.
Now the fun stuff. Each day for a week I will give you a word/phrase/topic that you will have to blog about. You can be creative as you want, but the idea is to make blogging fun again.
For example, say on Monday I give you the word Panda. You could write a pome, post pictures, tell us your opinions on the animals, or even give us the link to the Snapple commercial the pandas are in.
I will post the list this coming Sunday so you have a heads up for the week and the contest will go from midnight on the 23ed to midnight of the 30th. Start as soon as you want on Monday, I'll be blogging along with the list too, but I won't officially be in the contest.
Aside from the feeling of a job well done I will also be giving out prizes that the winners can proudly display on their blog sidebar, or can totally forget about.
Sign up while your thinking and keep checking in!

"You need to put the shoes back on!"
"You need to put your stuff back in your house!"
The good thing that come out of this whole ordeal was that we won 500 dollars. It was some lottery drawing that everyone is a part of if they hold a garage sale. The guy (and his whole family) came over just a few minutes after Christina arrived to start our Spanish skit.
Then we found out we could chat on google doc with Lauren (who couldn't get together with us)
Finally we saw an amazing blue bird that had a very pretty pattern on his back.
Just like Christina said, "These things come in threes."

Barney: Please... vacation romances have an expiration date. Gael's got a 'best if banged by' sticker on him. Once your romance starts to stink, you'll dump his ass down the drain like sour milk, and go back to being "unevolved Robin", the one we actually like. Back me up here, Ted.
Ted: I'm just happy Robin's happy.
Barney: I'm telling you: Within three days...
Lily: Oh, here he comes-- switch to big words.
Barney: Within a triad of solar periods, you'll recognize your dearth of compatibility with your paramour and conclude your association.
Robin: My journey was transformative, and I reassert my commitment to both the aforementioned paramour, and the philosophies he espouses.
Gael: What are we talking of? Baseball?
Barney: This is all going to return to masticate you in the gluteals. Support my hypothesis, Ted.
Ted: I'm just jubilant my former paramour is jubilant.

English 10E (5)
Creative Essay - Dead Man Walking
Up the elevator I went and down so many corridors I was sure I wouldn’t be able to find my way out. Then one of the doors opened and I sat in a room smaller then my cell for what seemed like hours. Finally the door opened and in stepped special agent Cayman Reed Way.
“Liam Yorson, it’s been a long time.” He gave me a smile and from behind his back he produced a small leather scrap book. My scrapbook.
“Where did you get that?” I said, making sure to sound scared.
“I’m willing to cut you a deal. Give me the location and I won’t burn your book.” Way then took out a lighter and tried to start it.
“You can’t destroy state evidence Way, we both know that.” I smiled at him and before I knew it I was up against the wall and Way was right up in my face.
“Tell me where.” His breath smelled like stale coffee. The side of my head felt cold and I saw his gun pressed up against my skull.
“Never.” I whispered and closed my eyes. I felt his arm as he pulled on the trigger.
Way started laughing. “You think I would throw away my whole career just to kill you? No, I’m gonna’ see you fry. You should have gone with the lethal injection instead.”
A loud noise echoed through my head and it wasn’t until I was halfway down the hall way that I realized it was my own scream.
