Information Overload

13 Aug

So sorry it’s been practically FOREVER since I posted… Fail on my part. I’ve been busy.

 

Well, my summer is basically over. On Monday I return to school…….Duhn duhn duhn! I’ll post up my schedule later, once it’s set in stone and whatnot. 😉

 

 

 

Fiat 500 presentation in Turin

Really, not much all that interesting going on. I’m ready for school and pretty darn excited! Oh, I have found out that I think I want a Fiat 500 for my first car. They’re inexpensive for a car, and they’re super cool. Check ’em out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have done a buttload of drawing though…so here’s a little art dump:

 

 

 

 

Oh, one more thing; I think I’m scrapping the Quorra costume thing. It’d be too much effort. I think I’m going to just buy an original Star Trek dress thing, and then wear some leggings with it and borrow a pair of boots from a friend. Much easier. 😉

 

Well…That’s all for now! Promise to have a bigger update when I have more news… 😛

 

God bless,

New Podcast!

27 May

Finally! Sorry for such the long wait.

 

School’s Out!

25 May

Finally! It took so long. But today was officially the last day. That means that summer is here! I have a somewhat busy summer planned, between taking an online course so I can take French next year, to going to Alabama to visit relatives. But, it should be fun!

I’m also planning on entering a local kids/teens film festival, and I’ve already started brainstorming for it. I’m hoping I can get a friend of mine to let me use their video camera, because the digital camera I use for book reports is okay for school things, but not bigger things. I have two ideas as of yet, one drama/sci-fi idea and one (quazi-) romantic-comedy. I have a couple of friends who I’d like to have read some lines and then cast them in. I’m very excited about it! It’ll be a great summer project.

I’m going to try and get back to posting AT LEAST once a week, hopefully more.

Well, that’s about it!

God bless,

Happy birthday to meee…!

15 Apr

Woo! Birthday time! 😀

Today was a good day. Busy (a bit boring at times due to upcoming CSTs), but good. I think I’m having another allergy outbreak or I’m getting a bit sick from being too busy, a bit stressed, and not sleeping well, but I’m still doing pretty good. 😉

I really don’t have much to say today! I got nominated for an award today, which was nice, and in about an hour I have to go back to school to start setting up for my school’s talent show. I will try to do a podcast tomorrow or Sunday, whenever I have time and am not too tired.

Till next time,

Agent M

Sorry Guys!

12 Apr

Yeah, I had to cancel the podcast for last week. Sorry! I was watching a documentary movie with my mom Friday night, went to a parade and then church on Saturday, and I couldn’t get on the computer most of Sunday morning. :\

 

I’ll try to make one this week, but if I do, it’ll be out around Saturday or Sunday. As I’ve previously said, I’ll be super-duper busy this entire week because of my school’s talent show, so my schedule’s pretty jammed from school stuff alone, not to mention extra-curricular (Ie: Blogging) activities.

 

Well…I really don’t have much else to say! I promise to try and do another post soon. 😉

Been Busy Again

6 Apr

Yes, it seems that in school, when it rains it pours. I’m using an analogy here (of which my English teacher would probably be proud) because it seems that projects never come one at a time…But rather, which a bunch all at once.

 

We have to write a persuasive speech for English. I actually enjoy public speaking, (Why else would I do a podcast?) but I don’t really like talking in front of my classmates. Because I know that a lot of them will disagree with me and a lot of people don’t particularly LOVE me, and I’m very nervous because 5% of our grade is based on if over 75% of the class (25 kids out of a class of 33) think you had a good speech. Gulp!

 

Now, normally, I’d be cool with that. We have a few weeks to do it, and it’d be fine to do some research and then write the actual speech.

 

But…

 

I signed up to write a speech for extra credit. They have this big thing at the end of the year with parents and kids and stuff and you can write a speech for it. I love writing, and speeches are fun, so OF COURSE I signed up! It’s due the 23rd, and it’s the 6th now, though, so I have a good bit of time. It only has to be about a page long. Buuut, my persuasive speech is due around the same time! Eeep! That and although writing a persuasive speech has its difficulties, but I want to write a funny speech. And that’s its own problems.

 

And I’m not done yet! But I’m actually pretty excited for this:

 

We have a book report coming up! 😀 I LOVE book reports actually. I’m a freak. It actually hasn’t even been assigned yet, but it will be next Monday. I’m going to do the Sherlock Holmes book, “The Valley of Fear”. It sounds interesting, from the synopsis I read on Barnes and Noble.com, but a bit graphic. But I always do love a good Holmes book. 😉

One of the projects we can do is make a movie for it, and I think I’ll be doing that. My birthday is coming up pretty soon, and I really want this Animation program called Anime Studio, so if I do get that and I get good at it, I’d really like to do an animated movie thing of it.

 

Speaking of which, this program (Anime Studio) looks SUPER cool! You can draw and animate things really easy from what I’ve seen and read, so I really, REALLY want it. I think I might try and do a podcast or something with it. I’d also been thinking about trying to animate a short or something based on one of my (many) story ideas.

 

Anywho, I have a bit of an interesting story to share:

 

So, in the auditorium at our school, there’s this tiny little closet with all the the sound stuff, a ladder that goes up into various rooms in the roof, (It’s super creepy from what I’ve seen. I haven’t ever climbed up it, but I’ve looked up there…scary) and some of the lights are up there and there’s even a time-capsule from 1984 in there! The closet, though, has a TON of random stuff in there. Like lizards. And beetles. And a football. And “Man o’ War Marine Varnish.” And old makeup remover. And a buttload of old paint.

 

So, the choir teacher wanted us to clean out the room a few days ago. So, one of the girls on tech crew went in there, with me shining a flashlight for the majority of the time, and she pulled out things of paint to the other three outside the door. So, I asked the teacher what to do with all this paint, and she says to open them all up, see if they’re still good or not, and then ask the secretary what to do with all of the paint. So after the paint is gone through (With a small mishap or two), I go up to the office and the secretary says to go and put them into this little storage room behind the Drafting/Art/Woodshop classrooms. They were putting all the toxic stuff there, and it was going to be picked up later. I went down there with everybody yesterday towards the end of the school day and the woodshop/drafting teacher (Who is SUPER cool, by the way) let us in. We had to make two trips, but we ran out of time.

So the next day (today), the choir teacher tells me to go down to one of the science teacher’s rooms and get a cart for the paint. I go down there (followed by the posse), and into the scary little storage room with the carts. She says there’s a bunch of jars and stuff on the cart and to put that on the bottom shelf, put the paint on top, and put all of it into the toxic-waste holding room. I go in there with one of the boys on tech crew, and it’s all dead stuff in jars. OH MY GOSH, I could NOT pick that stuff up. It was SO gnarly!! There were dead fish and a snake and little sharks and a frog and pig fetuses and this octopus that almost made me gag. The teacher said they were in this preservative called formaldehyde, and they stopped using it because it’s carcinogenic, which means it causes cancer! So, it was pretty spooky moving all of those creepy dead things with the dangerous preservative AND all of the ancient paint and varnish and whatnot.

 

Before I go, I’d like to tell you that next week I probably won’t be able to post too much. 😦 My school’s talent show is next Friday, and they have a ton of rehearsals for it that week, and because I’m on tech crew for choir and I’m basically the only person who can do lights, (Well, everyone else on crew can do the lights, but they wouldn’t know how to do as much in-depth stuff as me) I was sort of made to volunteer for it. Which means that 3/5 days I’ll be after-school rehearsing light cues, and on Friday, I have to be at school from 5:00-9:30 for the show. On my birthday.

 

Well, off to go try and write some stuff for one of my speeches and hopefully the podcast! 😀

 

God bless,

I’m a Fail

28 Mar

Yeah, I never did a podcast. Sorry. 😦

 

I was SUPER busy this last week and was feeling a little under-the-weather, but I will try to get one out this week! 😀

 

I don’t have a whole lot of fun stuff to talk about today, so maybe tomorrow something awesome will happen. The one interesting thing that happened today was I can sort of do a round-off and a boy in my class started talking about a beetle today in science and it was hysterical. 😛

 

So…see you (hopefully) tomorrow!

Rain Rain

23 Mar

Came today!

 

It’s been COLD!! And it started raining right at 3:00 when I got out of school. 😛

 

But I like the rain a lot. It’s supposed to rain until Friday (It’s Friday Friday Friday…Gah have that stuck in my head…) and then stay cold until Monday.

 

I have a busy rest of the week! Tomorrow I have rehearsal for a play a class of kids is doing on Friday (Kickin’ in the front seat…) and then I’m going over to family friend’s while my parents go somewhere. Then on Friday (…sittin’ in the back seat) I have the play, and running lights for it means I get to miss first period (P.E., where we’d probably be playing dodge ball, so I’m not weeping) and a bit of the next class. After school I have a choir rehearsal. And sometime in the middle I have to write a light cue for a competition the choir’s going to on (Tomorrow it is…) Saturday (…after that comes Sunday, Sunday) which I don’t have to go to.

 

Hopefully I won’t have to postpone the podcast AGAIN, but I’m gonna be pretty busy… :\ I know what I think I’ll be talking about, but still, it all comes down to finding a quiet moment when I can record.

 

By the way, the comic I’m writing with Merlock, Star Trek: Nova comes out this Friday (Fun, fun, fun, fun)! Just another thing that’ll eat up my time. 😛 The link to the website’s in the blogroll, so if you could check it out, I’d like that. 😉

 

Well, gotta jet!

On the First Day Since Spring Break…

21 Mar

My true love gave to me,

A good bit of hooooo-me work!

 

I figured I hadn’t posted ‘just ‘cos’ in a while, and why not post one today!

 

So, today was the first day back from spring break. We had a week off last week (sorry for not saying anything about it!) and it’s always so hard to go back to school after any break. But today was fine; I had more homework tonight than I normally have (Geometry, Science, History, and English!) but I got it done. Except English. And that’s not due till Friday anyways. 😉

 

Over Spring break, I watched two Sean Connery movies! I watched “From Russia with Love” and “Search for Red October”. I only watched bits of the latter because my room was kinda messy and I needed to take a shower. That’s a good movie…I wish I had watched all of it. AND GATES MCFADDEN IS IN IT. WHAT. That Dr. Crusher for any of you people who watch TNG. I didn’t like her very much. Sorry. :\

 

Anywho, I also got a caricature done. It was really fun! I haven’t had one done since I was in 3rd or 4th grade when I went to SeaWorld with my aunt. I also redid my binder cover! This one’s a mish-mash of a bunch of different things, things in my room and on my desk and random things too. It has my name on it though, so I probably won’t upload a picture. 😛

 

Well… I’ve ran out of things to say! :T I’ll try and do another more interesting blogpost later in the week!

 

Stay hip,
