Hello Seattle

Posted in Random, Update with tags , , on March 11, 2010 by Samantha Rose

I am not actually in Seattle yet, and I have yet to leave for Seattle.  But I am very excited.  I woke up a little after six this morning and could not get back to sleep because I was so excited (and because I was soooo cold…but mostly from excitement.)  Of course, just as I was drifting off to sleep, my alarm went off and I had to wake up. 

I was supposed to pack last night, but I had a lot of homework to do.  I never packed.  So today after school I will be hurrying home so I can pack, go to the bank, and possibly the store.  This trip sneaked up on me, and I am not prepared at all. 

To add to my state of freaking out, I am pretty sure that I have a test next week in Earth Science that I am not ready for.  I have not studied my vocab and I have not really read any of the chapter.  Great.  At least I currently have a 102 in that class.  (The teacher likes to give extra credit on tests…) 

I am starting to become nervous.  Please pray that I have a safe trip there and back and that I fit in with the kids there.  I really do not want this weekend to just be two days of awkwardness.  That would be bad. 



Animal Farm

Posted in Books, Random, Update with tags , , , on March 9, 2010 by Samantha Rose

Yep.  In my English class, we are reading Animal Farm.  So far, I think it is a bit weird.  But, then again, I have only read the first chapter.  I already know a little bit of what happens though, because I asked Molly.  The story seems strange now, but I am trying to still have an open mind and give the book a chance.  This is hard, but I am doing my best. 

My Seattle trip is getting closer.  This morning, I had a bit of a panic attack because I said something about sitting with one of my cousins on the bus, and my mom said, ‘Oh, they are not coming.’  I freaked out.  They are probably going to be the only people I know on the trip, and now she tells me they are not going?!?!  Dad saved the day though when he told me that they would be there.  So now, I will know like, three people on this trip!  Yay!  =)

I woke up this morning to snow on the ground.  SNOW.  We had a week of nice weather.  And now winter has returned.  It makes me very sad.  I am ready for the snow to be gone and for the sun to show itself. 

New Moon comes out on DVD in a couple weeks.  I have yet to pre-order it!  I keep forgetting.  Last year, I pre-ordered Twilight like a month before it came out on DVD.  I am way behind.  This is not good.  *worried face*

Yesterday I walked down to the library to take some books back.  I was not planning on checking out any books because I just bought a couple new books a few weeks ago and I am still working on them.  I checked out books.  I just could not help myself.  They had a book on hold for me and so I took it.  And then I went back just to look at the books and I started grabbing some.  And now, I have a lot of books to read.  And I will not really have time this weekend to read.  I checked out Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, The Carbon Diaries 2015, Fire, and a vegetarian cook book.  (I have wanted to try being a vegetarian for a long time now, but I never know what to cook.  However, most of the food in that book did not sound appealing.  I think I can suffer through eating meat for a while.)  I have read Sense and Sensibility before, but I loved it, so I had to check it out again.  I have not read any of the others before.  As I do read them, I will tell what I think about them here. 

I am noticing that these posts are longer than what I remember writing before.  Maybe I missed blogging more than I thought.  Obviously, I have a lot to write about.  It feels good to be back though.  =)


Stupid Technology

Posted in Movies, Music, Random, Update with tags , , , , , on November 14, 2008 by Samantha Rose

Our laptop is perhaps the stupidest laptop ever created. It won’t recognize my Zune anymore, so I can’t put the much-listened to Twilight Soundtrack on my Zune. It won’t accept an internet connection, so now if we want to get on the internet to check our e-mail, we have to do it at one of my parents’ work-places or the library. I know we’ve gone without internet before, so why does it seem so hard now? Probably because it was just a part of our daily life for so long, it seems weird not to have it right in our house anymore. -sigh- So my posts will probably be not as frequent as they were at some point in time. (Maybe I can make up by making them extra-long. So, expect lots of words!!)

Twilight comes out in a week! A WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously could not be any more excited. Oh, wait. Yes, I can. I will be tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day….=) We’re hoping for a midnight showing at our theatre here. That would be amazing! I mentioned the Twilight soundtrack. It is awesome. There isn’t a single song that I skip. Rob’s song is amazing, though he kind of mumbles. But he mumbles really well! =) Paramore’s songs are amazing. Muse is amazing. Everyone is amazing on that soundtrack! (It’s also the first soundtrack to ever get number one on the charts before the movie came out! Go Twilight!) My birthday is in 9 days, and from my wonderful sister Marcy, I got a necklace. It’s got three charms, and they each have a Twilight-thing on them. One says OCD Obsessive Cullen Disorder Another says ‘Twilight Addict’ and the third says ‘Fanpire’. Very cool. They’re on the backs of scrabble pieces, which only makes it cooler! It’s a very cool gift. (I also have worn it every single day since I got it…hehe)

Tonight is Missoula Children’s Theatre. I think me and Molly are going to go to it. This year they’re putting on a production of Red Riding Hood. It’s always fun to watch.

Next week is my last week of art class. =( But then I go to reading with one of my favorite teachers, so it all works out okay. I’m out of gym class now, and I have Health instead. I’ve enjoyed having a break from the running, but it still seems a little weird sitting down instead of standing up during first period. =)

The Office was on last night. Funny as always. And, Jim and Pam didn’t break up! Yay! We all kind of thought they were heading in that direction, but then Pam came back to Scranton, and they are once again PB&J! (Pam Beesly and Jim)

Well, that’s all I’ve got to say for right now. Enjoy your weekend!
