Back Again

  Well, I am back yet again. Did you really think I would abandon this blog for good? I have a tendency to grow slightly tired with my writing and abandon it for quite some time. I noticed my last post was one about high school...


 I dove into high school awhile ago and I wish I could say I liked it. Maybe it's just the school. Maybe  it's just the stress. Or maybe it's the things I've gone through since I first started. Let's just say, I wish I could enjoy school.

I do have a lot of good classes though with amazing teachers. I've learned a lot from them and they've not only taught me the class, but they have taught me life lessons I know I will use later on in life.

It's hard being in high school because you just feel trapped in one place. I just can't wait to live my own life without people telling me what I should learn or shouldn't.

Goodness. I sound like such a rebellious, naive teenager.

  My yearnings to travel are incredibly hard to ignore. I want to see this beautiful world God has created for us. I don't think man was meant to stay in just one place. We were meant to roam around and explore.

Alright, enough rambling...

There's nothing extremely new with me. Spring break is coming up and I'm staying home. I don't necessarily mind it so much. I'll probably finish some service project type things. I've begun singing in my church choir and it's been an amazing experience. It's so enchantingly beautiful and I just feel so close to God up there in the choir loft.

However, I have one tip to all you parishioners at your local churches, please please please sing along.

High School...

   I am so nervous and excited all at once. I'll be starting a new chapter, and meeting new people. I'm scared, though. Luckily, no one from my school can read my blog so I might as well give you my thoughts...

Part of me loves school so much. I've met a lot of nice people, and I will miss them terribly. I love laughing with them, and ranting about books with them. That's the great thing about my "little group". We're all bookworms, so when one of us reads a book, everyone passes it around and reads it. I LOVE IT SO MUCH! It's just so much fun! And, I've met a lot of nice guys who I will miss when I go off to high school. I could call at least 2 of them my really good friends. They're very respectful, good guys.

Then theres the part of school I dislike. Half of the stuff we learn, I will forget. All this chemistry, alpha decay, beta decay, gamma decay, linear line function, slope and point formulas... Who came up with that?! Why must we learn it?! The teachers all say "We'll need it in the future.." I don't think I'll remember this in the future. Then they always say, "It's every day life things."

Since when do you go to the super market and have to figure out how many protons are in the blah... blah...

ANYWAY, rant over. That was basically my way of saying how much homeschooling rocks.

So, yes, I'm excited for high school. I feel so privileged to be going to a Catholic high school... Even if it is only Catholic by name. I think I'll have a better atmosphere there.

Here are a few pictures of me in ballet class. I used to be good at it... Now, I'm not good at all. But, I'm working up to it again.

All Hallow's Eve

 I am currently doing NaNoWriMo... How to describe NaNo? Basically it's a thing that writers try to do where you write a 50,000 word novel in a month... And it usually does crazy things to your brain. Side affects of NaNo thats happened to me, I've aquired an obsession of listening to Of Monsters and Men, Taylor Swift, and Imagine dragons when writing. I also tend to have dreams where I have urges to write, but I just can't. And, I can't write ANYTHING, but my NaNo novel :P It's pretty awful, considering I have a novel about a president who fools everyone and turns into a dictator, and turns out to ruin America... They never saw it coming... *cough*. Ahem. Sorry.

Anyway, since I cannot write... I'll post pictures of Halloween and such!

There's not much... But...

AHH! I've got writer's block!!!

Wish me luck on NaNo!

What Would I Be Without Friends?

This is for the couple friends I have that have stuck with me. There are only a few, but I go by the rule of: quality over quantity.
So, this is for you guys! I love you all so much!



Aubrey and Mary Catherine, you are my best friends.

Long over due post...

As I have said in previous posts, I am extremely busy. 8th grade is a lot more hectic than 7th grade, and I have been cramming for time.
It's gotten better. My friend that insulted my mother is not sorry, and she doesn't believe she is wrong, but I'm ignoring it. I really do like her.
I feel much less alone right now, except for the fact I am stressed.

I went over to a friend's house last weekend to have dinner and watch a magic show. My whole family went, along with other families that are some of our closest friends. It was great fun. During the magic show, I got called up to be an assistant. Let me tell you something, I HATE standing in front of people I know in small enclosed spaces. But, I dislike even more when their are certain people in the audience that I cannot stand to be embarrassed in front of. How I manage to act on stage, I don't know.
The magician was very nice, and very talented. But, I knew he was going to (somehow) make me embarrassed. He was the kind of person that seemed like he did.

"What's your name?" he asked, grinning.
 "Julia," I answered back, smiling and blushing all at the same time. He got this light in his eyes that made me think... Oh dear. He's a Beatles fan. He's gonna start singing Julia by the Beatles.

And, he did.

And, it was quiet.

And, I was blushing and soooo embarrassed.

And, nobody knew the song except me and him.

*sigh* Yeah, I'm not fond of magicians.

But, he was very very talented in magic. He gave me 3 silver dollars to hold in my left hand.

I held out my right, thinking he had said right. But, he said left and everyone laughed at me.

So, once I got everything figured out, he held up a 4th coin and made it dissapear. Right before he said the "magic words", I felt movement in the palm of my hands. I freaked out (thinking he was really magic) and opened the palm of my hand, and FOUND ANOTHER COIN!

I was astounded, and speechless. So, when everyone clapped for me, and I went back to my seat, I was still speechless.

The one thing I don't like about magicians is that I can never figure it out. Magic isn't logical, and I always tend to like to figure out tricks.

I guess I'll never know...

I try to put on a happy face every single day, but now its being more forced. Between friends turning spiteful, bad math grades, confusing science teacher, friends who just don't get it, and the stress of getting into high school, I'm completely stressed. I just don't know what to do anymore. Every single friend I make has turned horrible, and even insulted my mom, which made me see red fury in my eyes. I'm not even feeling close to God right now, which is breaking my heart.

Please, please pray for me!
