Random Post {by a rather random girl}

Sometimes I feel as if there are just so many things going on in my life that it's hard to make a separate post for each of them! So I've condensed it to this one, longer, much more random one.

What I'm Reading:
A few days ago I started reading this great book called Deadline by Chris Crutcher.
I'm not done with it yet, (even though I'm dying to find out what ends up happening) but I already love it! Highly recommended.
Next I'm starting Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac (which is kind of an oxymoron...) which is by the same author as the book Elsewhere, so it should be a good read.

What I'm Writing:
Well, I'm gearing up for NaNoWriMo, which amazingly, starts in only nine days! Eeeep!
I have the basic ideas down for Troubled Waters, and pretty much have the characters figured out, so as long as I'm not loaded down with homework every night, I should be fine. I think. I hope.
I did attempt some cover art though and I'm pleased to show you the result:



So How's School?
School is....ehh. The past couple of days I've had (no joke) 3(+) hours of bio homework. Each day, and that's not even mentioning all of my other classes. AHHHH! Band's been fun, except for the fact that our teacher has only worked on this one (really boring) song for the past five rehearsals. In English we're reading A Midsummer's Night Dream (and Elránia is envious), In French it's pretty boring because we're re-learning everything we know, and in World History we're studying Neanderthals and the Stone Age. The worst parts? Gym class we're playing football. (Yes, FOOTBALL) and in math we are working on geometric proofs. Really, my life would be a whole lot better if geometric proofs just left.

Other Activities:
Well, there are only a few days left of marching band! *sob* last years the season seemed to go on forever and then this year the time simply flew by. *sniff* We still have two shows left though, one tomorrow, and then the following Saturday is finals. Really exciting! Because marching band takes up so much time I haven't been able to hang out with my non-marching band friends much, so I'm really happy that I'm able to go hang out with Elránia tonight :)

My Plans Regarding The Next Few Days:
Today: School, math test *cue scary music*, and hanging out at Elránia's
Tomorrow: Marching band show!!!! (Plus we're playing at the home football game!)
Sunday: Church, and the big pile of...h...o.....m....e...w....o....r....k I'm going to be handed today and not have time to do until Sunday. Yay.

Why did Elránia delete her blog?

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is great! *Almost* as good as Elsewhere. Marching band tomorrow! We better get 5s....
