Entertainment Overload

Crash! Bang! Boom! Splash! Flop! Pow! Kachaw!

I'm back!!

I don't really know how long it's been since I last posted, but it feels like it's been forever. I know a lot has happened since the last time I wrote, and I feel like I have an overload of information to pour out on my dear blog. Of course, I don't actually want to have this mega-long blog post with too much information to keep up with. So I'll try to narrow it down.

I'll skip the graduation fiasco, since I'm sure I'll mention it again once I actually graduate.
I'll also skip the exciting guy drama, since, well, frankly, I just don't want to talk about it.
I'll skip the SAT and the practice and the fact that I cannot stand bad grammar and SAT is full of it!
I'll skip Catching Fire and Ender's Game and Book Thief and Hobbit that I'm so excited for.
I'll even skip Thanksgiving and Korean food and too many sleepovers for my own good.

I think the most exciting event was our Junior/Senior trip to this little village called Atepec.
Our school always lets the Juniors and Seniors fundraise throughout the year so that at the end of the school year they can all go on this big, awesome beach trip. I'm graduating early, though, and another girl is leaving in December, so the class all agreed to set up a semester trip apart from the end of the year beach trip.

We headed up to the village, all ten of us (or are there eleven? Massive class anyway, huh?) and spent the weekend playing tons of board games and card games and group games and laughing until our stomachs hurt  so badly that we could barely even keep laughing.

We hiked down to a field overflowing with sunflowers and a cool little river hidden by bamboo and 'nispero' trees. We played hide and go seek and camouflage and sardines in the backyard at night, and only one girl twisted her ankle and touched one of the poisonous caterpillars. We all got some scratches and some cactus thorns, though.

At one point, I recorded the conversations going on because everyone except for me was involved in either a game of Risk or Chinese Checkers. I got some interesting sentences and conversations.

"Everyone was really close to me!"
"Your troops are like Shamgar!"
"It will be your face going into the toilet, then."
"I'm going to Congo to kill Ben!"
"I have nowhere else to go." "Heaven! You can go to Heaven!"

There are definitely more, but these are the ones I can remember of hand. I'm laughing just remembering.

Hopefully I can update again soon; I'm about to begin writing Draft 5, and I am so excited to get on to the second book in the Shadow Series. Ah! I can't wait!!

(I'm not sure why the pictures aren't working. Hopefully I can get them up before too long.)
