Romance Novels and Seeing the Moon

September 29th, 2004

Once again, I find myself up to my neck in homework, school, band, and extra-curricular activities. Of course, I might not be so lacking in time if I didn’t take the time to watch my Escaflowne DVDs and Star Trek Voyager…
I wrote an article about urban myths for my school newspaper. One of the myths I dispelled was that the great wall of china is the only man-made object visible from the moon. I tried to explain this to my friend Pierre over the phone while I was also trying to watch Voyager and do my English homework so I ended up saying “You can’t see the moon from the great wall” which is obviously not true. I guess, despite all of my hopes and training, my brain cannot multi-task.
Speaking of Pierre, I had a dream last night that he started writing romance novels under the nom de plume Beth Robinson. I think all of my friends did something strange, but I can only remember that. Weird.

Pierretree came Back!

September 21st, 2004

Yesterday, when I went in the music room to practice Ant, my Saxophone, someone I didn’t expect to see there was standing in front of me. It was Pierre!
He wasn’t due back from France until this December, but his grandmother drove him insane and he missed his friends so he came back on the next plane to Canada. I haven’t seen him since last December, when I went to live in England. Meaghan and I have to keep poking him to make sure he’s not an hallucination.

Swimming to Casablanca

September 19th, 2004

I did two things this weekend for the first time: I swam a Kilometre, and I saw Casablanca. There are so many famous lines from that movie:
“We’ll always have Paris”
“The problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.”
“I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship”
“Everybody goes to Ricks”
“Here’s looking at you, kid”
“Play it again Sam”
Although no one actually says that last line in the movie. It’s one of those mystery lines that has been invented after being repeated so many times. Just like “Beam me up, Scotty.”

Walk your Tuna, 2004

September 18th, 2004

Yesterday was the annual Walk-A-Thon, which I think means Walk-Your-Tuna because Thon is Tuna in french. The school makes the ninth and tenth graders go out and collect money for the student council that usually only has participants in grades eleven and twelve, which I find pretty ironic. After collecting the money, the ninth and tenth graders go on a 30km walk over a mountain all day. It’s famous for the mud, but the only year I went it was completely dry and it left me and Pierre with headaches, sunburns, sore throats and legs.
This year it did rain, and as tradition, they younger kids all jumped around in the mud and came back all brown and looking like swamp monsters. The Mud Room below the library actually lived up to it’s nickname for the first time in two years. I should’ve taken some pictures for the Gillis Gazette.

Blog party!

September 12th, 2004

I wrote my tenth entry a couple of days ago. That’s more entries than I usually write in a year!! I should celebrate or something, but I guess that wouldn’t be worth reading.
I wrote a story that is told backwards about a girl who gets her history teacher fired for giving her lesbian friend lower marks than the rest of the class. I think it’s a good story, but we’ll see what my english teacher thinks.

Walk the Dinosaur

September 9th, 2004

That is the title of one of the songs that I have to play in stage band. I had my first band practice with the alto sax on Wednesday morning. I’ve got it again Friday morning and Concert Band after school today. It seems that I’ve lost my ability to count time in music, but hopefully it will all come back with some practice.
I had 3 pages of Math homework and 2 pages of English last night, and on top of that I went and babysat the three little boys of my father’s colleague for three hours so that he could host the political science party. When I got home at nine, I was to tired to do the dishes and finish my homework, let alone practice my two instruments. It seems like between school, band, and all my other responsabilities I hardly have time for anything else. I’d rather be walking a dinosaur. And it’s only been four days back.

Moony Monday

September 6th, 2004

I just finished watching the remake of the movie “Freaky Friday”. It makes me wonder what would happen if my mom and I switched places for a day. We don’t have really complicated lives and I can’t really get embarassed because not many people know me in my school. Still, it would probably be difficult for her to find where my classes are in my massive labyrinth-like school. Then she’d just have to sit around and listen to my teachers talk. Then there’s band after school, but she already knows how to play the clarinet, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
Is it just me or am I a bit to much like my mom?

Back Amongst The Tribe

September 4th, 2004

I’ve survived my first two days back at school, in my native tribe. This semester I’m taking Physically Active Lifestyles (dumb), Career and Life Management (dumber), English 11 (very easy because I’ve read two of the three books we’re studying: Farenheit 451 and Animal Farm) Francais 436 (interesting and challenging) and Advanced Math 11 (should be challenging but right now all our teacher has done is preach to us about the joys of math). While other people my age might enjoy PhysEd and Careers, I don’t. They’re easy, and therefore boring, and if I’m bored I think the class is dumb and dumb classes waste my time. (hope the teachers of those classes aren’t reading)
Here’s some things I noticed on my first day:
1. The grade nines are still brats,
2. There are still a lot of preppies, and girls who try too hard to be popular
3. Mrs Killian survived her first year despite all of our predictions
4. The halls are still very crowded, and there’s always a couple having a conversation in the middle of traffic
5. they did some major renovations of the grade nine and twelve areas, and the classes there are now more roomy and air conditioned
6. The school is a bit more painted mural wise,
7. fitting in isn’t fun anymore.

Foreign Lands…

September 2nd, 2004

These sneakers that I’m wearing right now, I bought at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol, England. They have walked me through Amsterdam, Belgium, Prague, and all over Britain. But this morning they tread through the most foreign of all lands…

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

September 1st, 2004

Today is the last day of Summer. Tomorrow I go back to school, eleventh grade.
Yesterday I saw my friend Meaghan for the first time for nearly eight months. Earlier that same day I had a major haircut. My hair used to fall around my waist. Now it’s just longer than my shoulders. Here’s a picture of how much hair I lost: (not for those who are squeemish)
