I'm going to try to post more


I really love looking back and seeing what I've posted, but I got sad when I realize I've barely written at all this year. It's that junior year, man...killing ya. So I'm going to write more for posterity. Also, it's this or SAT chemistry practice test, so yeah, this.

Two more exciting things that have happened:

I got a Kindle for my birthday! From my uncle who I wasn't expecting a present from. Yay! :D He also gave me a book: "A Short History of Nearly Everything." I really like my Kindle.

I don't know how I forgot to mention this. A lot of you already know, but our forum The Lakehouse was featured in the latest issue of Star Wars Insider! Star Wars Insider is THE official international Star Wars magazine :DA huge thanks to Ms. Franklin who wrote about us for Bantha Tracks. The article made me realize we have come full circle and makes me tear up whenever I think of it. :)

Long live the legacy! :) Studying more, just trying to hold out until Saturday.

Crowns!

I don't even know anymore.. Everything has changed so much. I understand what junior year hell is like for everyone now, even though it's probably toned down more for home-schoolers. :)

Still alive! God has done so much for me in the past couple months. It's truly been the best of my life so far, even though it's been more stressful and worrisome than ever, and I haven't had time to blog(so many spammers lately!) or go to dance.

At my girl scout GAM competition, we got the same(high) score, place(third!), and pennant(Clipper!) as last year. Which is amazing, and I had a lot of fun. We had a really good sea shanty(song) which we worked hard on, but we got the same score as last year when we basically made up the whole thing last minute. Which we were pretty upset about but oh well.

I was really happy when I got my SAT score back! I studied really hard and got 2260 on the first try, so I won't have to retake it. Got an 8 on the essay though.....wrote about Jane Eyre, Speaker for the Dead, and Animal Farm. I probably should have picked more diverse examples and not sounded like I was barfing up english class with some random anthropological science fiction thrown in.

Unfortunately, I realized that I had SAT subject tests the next week and I had to take them. I was originally signed up for Math IIC and Chemistry. I've been studying math really hard the past couple days, but yesterday I decided that I wouldn't be ready to take the test on Saturday. I really want a 800 so I need to study hard. It's easier to get an 800 on Math II than on the regular SAT math. Well, the math itself is more difficult, but the curve is easier. You can miss 8 and get 800, whereas on the SAT missing one will set you back at 780. So about 11% of Math IIC'ers get an 800. I SHALL BE ONE OF THEMMM. So I'm taking that in october, and taking Literature on Saturday instead. Last...test...then I shall be freee

Went shopping for my workout room renovation project! Hopefully I'll get that done this summer. It was funny because we went to home depot, where everything was $$$$$$$$ and then we went to a home improvement resale store and everything was so cheap and we found some big mirrors(attached to mirror doors :/) for like $10 when at home depot it was $60 and lol. Someone on craigslist also is going to sell me her treadmill for only $25 which is really good cause I still need to raise money.

Hopefully, I'll also get to work in the biology lab and psychiatric ward of UCI this summer on science research, which is exciting! Slogging through paperwork now.

This song is addicting. Showed it to my cousin and he said it was freaky...he should be glad I didn't show him the actual video for the song which creeps me out even more XD.

The last day I will ever study for AP Chemistry


is today.

It is a beautiful feeling!!!!!!!
AP Chem has literally(not literally) consumed my soul and it is about to be over!!!! (except for one lesson and a test on organic chem but psssshhhhh who cares about those)
although also FREAKING OUT because the AP test is tomorrow. Like whoa.

The test has an extremely lax curve, 65% is a safe 5 and 50% is a safe four. Aiming for one of those.

Also I took the SAT yesterday! I think I did pretty well, can't wait to get the scores back!

Got to go study now!
