The Teenage Drama Queen's Journal
|Jun. 15th, 2005 03:29 pm|
I haven't written in here for SO long. Life's been hectic (which explains the n month delay on my story posting).
School is really awful, but I have good news. Instead of doing the Israeli version of Regents--which are bad enough for the people who've been born here and speak the language--I'll be doing this thing called ICS, which basically is a correspondence school where you get an American high school diploma.
Today and tomorrow are our last days of actually learning, and then we have a week of trips (a TOTAL waste of time) and doing things like volunteering at places who give food to poor people, like packing boxes (not a waste of time), and Thursday is our last day of school! YES!
My fifteenth birthday is on Monday (June 20). Unfortunately, since I skipped a grade, all my friends have already turned or are turning 16, but whatever. I'm used to it.
I have a lot of things I want to do this summer. We have a horse named Pocahontas and we are getting another, so I'll be riding a lot and taking lessons. I also want to learn guitar (I've been sort of teaching myself but I'd love to have a teacher. A girl in my school offered to teach me, so that's good). I'm planning on running a three-week camp with my friend for 6-year-old boys (I think I'm suicidal). I'll be working on the ICS, I want to learn HTML, and I'm writing fanfic (of course).
Speaking of fanfic, I just finished a story I've been working on for 2 1/2 years called Dreams to Dwell On, which has been mostly betaed by Kelleypen, so I'd like to thank her here, publicly (well, as public as this is). Thanks, Kelleypen!
This is long. Gotta run!

Hi. I'm in computer class, and I'm bored. I need to find some good fanfic!
I just want to pay homage to kelleypen, the sweetest lady. She really made me feel better with her reply to my post last time. </span>

My school sucks. I'm definitely switching in the near future.
I know I haven't written in a long time, it's just that my parents are being obtuse. They don't want me to go on the Internet anymore. Right now I'm in computer class.
Elsha, PLEASE upload Inevitability! I'm dying over here!
I don't have anything else to say.

Hi. I don't have much time, so I just want to say a few things.
I won't be able to post so often because my parents are starting to give me trouble about using the internet.
Also, we won Color War because they recounted the points and it turns out that we had seven more points than the other team! Go Roots!
Elsha posted the chapter that I've been waiting for since the end of Discoveries - when the adorable couple finally admit to each other what they wouldn't admit to themselves! Go Elsha! And post the epilogue soon!
Important: Whoever wants Elsha to continue writing after Disavowals and so on, please leave a comment to that effect. Then I'll send all of them to her and we'll take it from there. Her stories are the highlight of my week!
Production is in two weeks!!!!! AAAAARGH! Wish me luck!
Have to fly,

Hi, sorry I haven't written in a while. My two friends are reading this over my shoulder, so pardon any frustrated exclamations.
It turns out that WE won color war! Ha! So there, stupid old fruits! (Fine, Debbie, I didn't mean that!) But it's so OBVIOUS that roots are better.
I really have NO IDEA why we won.
I'm in computer class right now, and I'm strictly not supposed to be on the Internet, so if this is abruptly cut off - you'll know the reason why.
I have sent the continuation of my story to kelleypen and she WILL beta it within the next month. Please?
And Elsha has Internet again!!!!! Hooray! Now I can FINALLY find out what the hell happened to those two! You know, it really frustrates me when I have to WAIT for a chapter (miss_celestine , this is for you too!). I'm way too impatient. Oh well, one more thing I have to work on!
Dance is coming along swimmingly, but seeing as we have about two weeks until the performance and we haven't even practiced with the whole cast yet, you can understand why I'm a little worried. We ARE doing it with the whole scene tonight, though. Thank goodness.
School is as stupid as usual. The principal is DUMB!
A girl came today - she's moving this summer and might come to our school. She seems nice.
I think I have to sign off now. A late VERY HARRY VALENTINE'S DAY TO YOU ALL!

Okay, Color War is over. Finally. I'm SO glad.
We lost. The other team won. But I'm glad. My three best friends were on that team, and Sarah and Debbie have never won color war before, so I'm happy for them.
I really have to dash, I have to babysit, so maybe I'll write later!Leave a comment

ATTENTION! IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANY MORE ABOUT THIS RIDICULOUS COLOR WAR, SKIP DOWN A BIT! AND IF THIS POST IS RANDOM, DON'T SUE ME!
Right. Now that all of you color war haters have been placated, here it is. We finally managed to get a dance! It reminds me vividly of an aerobics routine, but - who am I to complain, when we finally have one?
Of course, the fact that the two best dancers in the school are on the other team might help this complaint along.
Can you tell I'm obsessed with dance?
Unfortunately, we are holding the color war presentations tomorrow night from 6:30 to 10. The unfortunate part is the fact that me and about six other girls will be missing the dance practice for our performance in FOUR WEEKS, and we've barely gotten through half the dance!
Okay, Bec, calm down. Take deep breaths and think happy thoughts.
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ MY HAPPY THOUGHTS, PLEASE SKIP DOWN A BIT.
My baby brother. Friends seasons. MY friends. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...
Whatever. I am feeling very annoyed.
For those of you who are reading my story on SQ, Dear Diary, I should be getting the chapter back from my beta tomorrow, and uploading it on Sunday. It may not appear until Monday, though. For those of you who are not, please do and review! It really boosts my ego. Here's my author's page. http://www.sugarquill.net/index.php?action=profile&id=1051
And I'm sorry if the chapters aren't consistent. First person, third, and so on. It's just that I want to show it from different POVs!
If I'm rambling, I'm sorry.
Also, I'll be posting another story soon, one that kelleypen has pre- betaed. Thanks, Kelley! And what did you think of my picture?
How do you make links to documents in LJ, like when people post links to their chapters? And how do you make a scrapbook?

Well, we had our first day of color war - preparing our dances, badges, etc.
And it isn't fair that the best dancer in the entire school is on the other team, along with her sister, another amazing dancer, who also happens to be one of my BEST FRIENDS!
And now MY Gmail isn't working - it says it's invalid - I don't know if it means the password or the username! Growl.
Something interesting (sad?) - I am now an official Harry Potter official.
I took about ten mega-advanced quizzes on Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and books vs. films, and I got 100 on EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. If they call that advanced, I shudder to think what easy is!
Anyway, I have to sign off.
