Heyyyyy everyone! I'm sooooo sorry I've been gone for so long. I literally haven't posted in MONTHS! But if any of my amazing followers are still reading my blog, then thank you for not leaving me! :)
I love you all sooooo much.
I've been sooooooo busy, I can't even explain it. I barely have time to breathe.
But I just wanted to say...
I AM IN LOVE WITH HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!
I am totally, completely in love with my life.
There is nothing abut hugh school that I don't like. (Except Mrs. K, my biology teacher. More about her later.)
But seriously, I am SOOOOO HAPPY.
I have made soooo many new friends. Even people that I was in middle school with, but I never really developed friendships with. They are now some of my best friends!
I loooove Carolina, Becca, Carli, Destiny, Anisa, Megan, Eric, Lindsay, Rachel, Samantha, Rachel #2, Nikki, Mike, Morgan, Taylor, Caleb, Timmy, Brendan, and all the other amazing people that I am proud to call my best friends.(:
Although, I do miss my old friends :(
Krystal and Tiffany, mostly.
Krystal, if you are reading this, please know that I haven't forgotten about you. I think about you lot, and you will always be in my heart <3
You too, Tiff ;)
Anywhoo, one of the things I love about high school is the freedom. The teachers basically tell you to do something, and then leave you alone to do it at your own pace. They don't hover. No reminders, no check ups, no parent signatures. Its great :)
And there is SOOOO MUCH LESS DRAMA.
There is literally NO DRAMA AT ALL.
I swear, middle school was CHOCK-FULL of drama. I got so sick of it. But now, everyone has totally matured and grown out of that catty middle school phase. I love it. Girls and boys mingle together as friends with no gossip, jealousy, or backstabbing. Its GREAT.(:
But the best thing about high school so far, was retreat. Retreat is a little vacation/camp thing that all the high schoolers go on each year.
The underclassmen and upperclassmen are divided. We all travel in buses up to the mountains, to a little campground. The bus ride was amazing. I sat with Mark, Eric, Sydney, Zack, Mike, Noelle, Carolina, and Mia. We played a bunch of games, and told jokes and stuff like that.(:
Then we got to the camp, and took our suit cases and sleeping bags up to the camps, and then met in the Pavillion. Then, after we got out t shirts, we had 4 hours of free time before dinner and night games. So, I walked around with the same group of kids from the bus, plus Dylan, Anisa, Destiny, Mali, Victorya, Connor, Aaron, Becca, Megan, etc. etc. We explored around the woods, went to the snack shack and got sodas, and then discovered this place that we called Pride Rock. It was a huge boulder that you could climb and jump off of :)
Then, we went over to an abandoned feild thing, and found this GIANT hollow tube thing. Like the kind you see at construction sites. So we, being stupid kids, decided to have some fun with it :)
So we got the big, strong guys to roll the tube up the hill, and then we all crammed into it, and they said, "One Two Three, GO!" and they pushed the tube down the hill, and we ROOOOOOOLLLLLEEEEDDDDD all the way down!!!!!!!
It was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was the most fun ride I've ever been on! And we invented it ourselves! :D
But the thing was, you had to push your legs up on the front of the tube, and lay your hands on the back, behind your head, and PUSH PUSH PUSH! Because otherwise you would fall. And possibly fall OUT. I would know. It hurt sooooo bad. I have tons of cuts and scraped and bruises, but it was sooo worth it. If you were closing your eyes, you couldnt tell if you were up or down, and that would make you fall even harder. I fell once, and I was banging my head and kicking and slapping myself accidentally, and Morgan and Adrian were trying to hold me down because I was flying all over the place! Haha!
But anyways, after that we all went to dinner. The food was great too (:And after that it was about 9 at night, so we played Underground railroad until 11. Underground railroad is where everyone dresses up in black and runs through the forest from one point to another, trying not to get caught by the people stationed at specific spots throughout the run. It was amazing! I was with Dylan and Carolina and Mike, and I got separated from them, so I was all alone, and lost, about 30 minutes off in the wilderness. It was terrifying. I swear I heard howls.... anyways, I ran into Scott and Eric, and I was never happier to see them!!!!! It was so scary. Hahaha.
Anyways, after that, we all went back to your cabin, and feasted off Oreos and peanut butter until midnight :)
Then, we did the same thing for the next two days (basically) plus watermelon relay races, water fights, dodgeball, tree climbing, etc etc.
I loved Retreat.(:
So, hmm... lets think... other big news.... OH! I made thr varsity high school cheerleading team! Only two freshman made it! Me and Rachel! The rest are Juniors, Sophmores, and a Senior. We just cheered for the first football game of the season last night! I got to fly the stunts.(: It was awesomeeeee!
Oh! Also, other big news: The official newspaper for the state that I live in is doing an article on up and coming actors in the greater area, and they interviewed me!!! And I had a photoshoot! They dressed me up in a long, flowing gown, and arranged a set with an elegant little love seat and rose petals strewn across the carpet. They had me hold a red rose, too :) I felt like a princess!
Anyways, I have an audition today, so I better get going. But I promise, I will post more often. I'm starting to get back into the groove of things with school and stuff, so I'm a little less busy/stressed. So come again, for more on my crazy life! :D
Love you allllll!!!!!
