At my school, we are doing the musical version of The Whiz. The Whiz is a spin off of The Wizard of Oz, and I have yet to see it. I absolutely adore stage crew, and everything about it, and so, when I heard that we were going to be doing a play, I immediately volunteered for stage crew! I am, I think, the only older kid to want to be only in stage crew, and not in the actual play. I have previous experience in stage crew, so I was hoping that the directors would choose me to be head of stage crew. They did!!!! I am so happy!!!! I am now officially head of stage crew!!!! Even though I know that this will be a lot, I am going to give my all and make this an awesome musical/play!!!! In my last post, I talked about stress, and the many things that were stressing me out, but then my dad gave me a pep talk, and now I am a lot less stressed! I know that this might (aka will) add more stress to my life, but I really don't care! I will deal with it as it comes!

I am under so much stress! I have major tests soon, that will affect my academic career, I am starting to feel the social pressure, my friends are kind of acting weird, etc. Some people say that stress is good for you in small doses, but this is not small! My only escape is reading or talking or something else of that same sort that takes my mind off of it! I cannot escape it!!!!! I have just recently become not afraid of my mother, which is slightly a good thing, but it just adds more stress and pressure to my life, because she keeps on getting mad at me and when I would usually have a wave of fear, I now feel nothing. I have no fear, no anxiety, no nothing when she is mad at me. It is shocking! I am going to be so glad when we get into Christmas break, 'cause then all the stress will probably be gone!

Phantom of the Opera!!!!! I am now wanting to read Phantom of the Opera!!!!!! But sadly, I am reading a book called The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms! It is an awesome book!! I recommend to anyone who doesn't mind being kind of confused in the beginning!:) It is about a girl who just got summoned by her grandfather who is ruler of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms! He wants her to be his heir! But unfortunately, there are some nasty cousins who also were named heir and heiress, and they will do anything to get the throne. And I do mean everything! ;) I will not reveal the ending! eventhoughIdonotknowtheending...... Hope you will read it!!!!!!

I am still stuck on Romeo and Juliet, it is the weirdest thing! (sigh) I love that story! I am guessing that is from watching Gnomeo and Juliet... That movie was the best thing I have seen in a while! Some people might say that it is to silly, but truly, it was made as a joke of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet! So, HAHA! Thank you Claire for getting me into this stuff! I have one request.... *shuffles feet* will you all watch or listen to crocodile rock with Nelly Furtado? Just once! If you don't like it, then blame me! If you do.... THEN AIR HIGH-FIVE!!!!!!!! 'Cause you are my newest friend! Welcome to the club!!! Once again..... THANK YOU CLAIRE!!!!!!!!!!

I once saw a lone, red rose in the middle of winter. Well, some of you might say, that accounts for the background. We are doing a name project in English, and for my new name I chose Quynh. It might sound weird, but the actual meaning is night blooming flower. I love it! Its origin is Vietnamese. So if you want to choose a new name, put it in the comment section. I would love to see it! So......... what's up? Nothing's up for me, just working on homework. Thanks for asking anyways! You know how I am reading Romeo and Juliet? Well, there are 2 things. #1 I am finished reading it. It was awesome! #2 Juliet means youthful, downy and Romeo means from Rome, Italy. Isn't that cool??!!!!

I love penguins!!! There are 17 types of penguins!! That is more than all of Katie's after-school activities!!!! Ooh, Katie, I am sorry. :( Penguins were my favorite animal at one time. Actually for a long time. They were my favorite animal since I was in preschool! But now my favorite animal is the corn snake!!! Corn snakes are scarlet, red, orange, golden yellow, yellow and they have black eyes! But back to the penguin subject..... Penguins live near the Equator, did you know that? The only species that live way up there are the Galapagos penguins. As from their name, they live on the Galapagos Islands. The only other species that live not in the antarctic, are the African Penguins. They live on Africa! (duh)

This is my first blog so it might not be as good as you expect so you might want to lower your standards a little bit. I am currently reading Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet is about two star-crossed lovers whose families are fighting and they are barred from each other. In the end, Juliet pretends to kill herself (that's just sick) and then Romeo, upon seeing her, really kills himself, thinking her dead. When Juliet wakes up, she stabs herself out of grief. Nice story, eh? My nest blog will be on something totally different, maybe frogs or something..... SO STOP BOTHERING ME ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!
