Well I'd pretty well consider it so. Valentine's Day is this month, so hey! Not that I'm really into the cupid stuff, I just like getting the chocolate hearts.
So, how's it been? I've been behind in my schoolwork and due to that, I have found my head too crammed to post. But now I'm all caught up and my brain is clearing. Things just haven't been my way in the school area lately....History is the Civil War, which I am good at that but it depends on how many problems are in the lesson or quiz. Like one quiz I had last week had over thirty-some questions...I can't take that. Bible is on the persecution of the Church. Language Arts is(thankfully not a lot of scary grammar) on writing tips or something. Math is easy(for once! Thank the LORD). And Science is....on...quite frankly at the moment, I forget.
Life has been fine. I'll be getting a new guitar soon so I'm excited for that! See, I've had my old one for about a few years now, and my music teacher says my fingers have pretty well gotten used to it(and I can agree to that), so it is time for me to get a bigger one. I've really progressed far in my music. I've gone from picking strings to strumming, which I'm still working on. It's fun, hard(with the fact I have to move my fingers around alot), and sometimes even easy. I think it's worth it.
I think my dog is upset. See, Pets Mart sent us a birthday coupon for her, so it means she turned a year older. Penny is now 5, but acts like she is still a puppy. I asked her how she liked being a year older and, being a grumpy dog, she groaned. Was it bad that I laughed? It's like she actually understood me. Oh well, I guess I can agree with her. The years go by so fast and the next minute you are actually grown up.
I'm upset to say I've progressed no further in my stories, except I am in the middle of yet ANOTHER one. I'm coming up with ideas every minute of my life. Sometimes I'm glad I have a second talent, that way I can succeed in that if the other fails. But I'm glad for night time! It gives me a while to think about what I want. Like I said before, I have no idea how I want to begin my stories. THAT IS ALWAYS MY PROBLEM.
On the subject of real life, well...things in my home have been...say...interesting. My brother is busy with college stuff and it's driving me nuts. See, he graduated High School last year. And now he is going to college this fall. He is also planning to volunteer at the summer camp I went to last year. Oh great...anyways, Dad is getting a new computer, which means he is going to move the one in the room to the living room, and that one is going to his church office. Sound complicated? Then you don't know my dad. He is excellent with computer stuff.
I don't know how many times I've honestly watched "The Hobbit" movie trailer. I have to wait until December for it to come out! I have the up-most faith in Peter Jackson to make this one good, as he did beautifully with Lord of the Rings which I am a big fan of. The cast looks great. And my sister(who read the book) says they've left out nothing so far, except for the fact of adding new characters and bringing back some of the old ones. And frankly, I'm anxious to see how it all turns out.
Yes, 2012 will be a year of great movies. The one I mentioned above will be coming out, then there will be the Disney/Pixar movie "Brave", and well...I really don't know any others. I just know that there will be a lot I want to see.
Well, I think that's all I wanted to say. I'll leave you with a video! YES! A video!
In honor of the best Disney film that was just re-released in 3D.
