Although it’s not QUITE as cool as yesterday ^^” Markus Zusak=my idol! He’s so young, and SUCH a good writer! If I could write half as well as him, I would be UBER grateful!
Today, we had another guest visitor: QUINTON AARON CAME TO OUR SCHOOL! He played Michael Oher in the Blind Side. I didn’t actually get to meet him (It was a thing for the Theater classes–I’m not in any Theater classes, so I didn’t get to go to his little clinic/talk thing TT_TT But I will be next year! YESS!), but my kid sister did! She got to HUG him, and he hugged her back!
Let me just say this:
He. Is. HUGE. And not, like, in a BAD way–he’s just SOOO tall!
But that wasn’t the highlight of my day! In fact, the highlight of my day was in Chem II!
We broke the law!
We took pennies, coated them with zinc, then put them on a hotplate. Because brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, we turned the pennies into:
We all thought we were alchemists! I was working with my friend and he was like, “I’ve got a golden penny!” Then our Chemistry teacher told us that it was Brass. BUT IT’S STILL AWESOME! ^^
Also, I’m super excited because I got THIS in the mail today:
YAY! ^^ I can’t wait to listen to it!
Also, we went shopping for shoes and jewelry for me to wear to Homecoming (Much to my chagrin and to my mother’s frustration–I am EXTREMELY hard to shop for!)–I was actually VERY cooperative when we were trying on shoes. I only complained once because the shoes were pinching my toes. I don’t like shoes! TT_TT
Anyway, we were looking for jewelry at Claire’s while waiting for our movie to start (We watched “Big Year”–it was good, but I don’t want to go off on another tangent ^^”) and I found a PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN LOCKET! I also found a really cool flowery locket with two charms: a purple bead (PURPLE! ^^) and a key.
But back to the Pirates locket: it’s shaped like a skull, and has a picture of Jack Sparrow inside. I don’t really have a crush on Johnny Depp or anything, but I do think he’s an AWESOME actor, and I look up to him! But the reason I chose the locket is because, on the other half, it says: “Always a treasure to be found”, and I really agree with that statement!
I personally think that there’s a good side to everything; there’s nothing that’s truly ALL bad, and there’s beauty to be found in even the darkest of times.
What would your ideal philosophy for life be?
Oh, and speaking of homecoming, I finally took a picture of my dress for you guys! ^^”
I absolutely love it! The picture kind of messes with the colors, but the sash in the middle is a royal-purple color, and the dress underneath is a light blue. Purple + blue + glitter = fabulous–for me, at least ^^”
