Youtube… Wednesday?

I am seriously in love with this video. Go watch the one on public transport too.

(Sidenote, I’m now thinking in British after watching like, 10 of his videos. Yes, this is normal. It happens after charlieissocoollike videos too)

MONOCLE.

Until next time, Em 🙂

I love the holidays…

Today we got/gave secret santa gifts and ermahgerd I love my secret santa so much. I got like 5 bags of candy/oranges/tea/deliciousness. Plus two of my friends were giving gifts to our friends so I got a(nother) bag of candy and some cake decorating tips 🙂 Woot woot time to decorate some cakes!

Also, my grandparents came today so we pretty much sat around watching the Polar Express (that is one scary movie… it’s like a roller coaster. I remember when it first came out and I wanted to see it in IMAX 3D… wow) while I knit a catnip mouse for my friend. Yep. Typical night in the Em household.

so cute

so cute

Also, Zia showed me this super cute page… be warned. It’s pretty hilarious.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Youtube Tuesday #3

Today I have to share with you a super-funny video that really speaks to me (okay now I sound crazy. Moving on.)

It’s called “Tumblr Lessons: CUTE MESSAGES” and I actually stumbled upon it because it was on the sidebar of a math video that my teacher sent me because of the current snow day. So, yeah. Totally unrelated video… but it still shows up on the sidebar.

I was laughing throughout the WHOLE video. I didn’t know spelling errors bugged anyone else as much as they bug me… her asking “do you actually go to English class?!” is something I have definitely said before. Cough cough.

And a second video… by the same person! This one also really speaks to me (crazy person talking again.)

It’s called “Being Blind SUCKS” and I can totally relate with her. I am nearsighted, farsighted, and have astigmatism. Bleh. Anyways, if you have glasses like me (since I was 1 or 2) then you should go watch it. Or… even if you don’t. Just so you know the pain we glasses-wearers go though every day.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Overzealous Play Rehearsals

This afternoon, my friend was fetching a camera from my yearbook instructor’s office to take pictures of the school play. This sounds like an easy task, but apparently it wasn’t.

My friend came back into the yearbook room (across campus from the yearbook instructor’s office) limping and proclaiming “I think I twisted my ankle…”

How does one  react to this?

Especially when one’s friend looks like she is smuggling a tangerine into her tights (because of the swelling).

And you know the funniest part?

She twisted her ankle by walking down stairs and stepping on a wrong step. Not exercising, or anything exciting like that. Nope, walking down stairs.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Welcome to IB, people

Have you ever heard of the IB? It stands for International Baccalaureate (when I tried to spell it Bacchauloriate, it said I was wrong and suggested “Chateaubriand” as a replacement…), but people at my school swear it stands for International Bitch-Slap. And I completely agree.

I knew Junior Year was going to be harder than Sophomore Year… it’s pretty obvious when you look at how my Sophomore  English teacher grades (you could say the sky was blue and he would say “that is a great observation”), and how the Junior English teacher grades (I don’t have her yet, I switch to her half-way through the year; if you’re lucky you get half your paper covered in red pen. If you’re not lucky… the whole thing is covered)

Seriously, though? I just got an International Bitch-Slap right in the face…

I used to like math class (I still do… just not IB)… then came the first test of the year. Financial Math. I thought I did pretty good, and then we got our tests back. Our teacher told us that the class average was 75%… and let’s just say the school average is around 95% ON EVERYTHING. Our teacher also said that 75% was a good grade, that it’s average.

We all freaked out, thinking, at our school, 90% is a “failing” grade.

And then our teacher told us how she converted our percentage grade to our “IB grade”… by the way each problem is worth 2-6 points, 1 point for Method and 1 point for Answer for each part of the question

1. The test is out of 50 points. Let’s say I got 27 points right.

2. First you multiply the score I got by 2 to get my percentage (54%)

3. Then you take the square root of that percentage (7.35)

4. Then you multiply that by 10 (73.49)

So in reality, I should have gotten a 54%, but I got a 73.49% instead… great.

After that terrible class (which consisted of 2 long note-worksheet things that took 90 minutes after the terrible test results), I had English. AKA the worst class ever. We’re reading The Metamorphosis right now, and let’s just say that book sucks. So we were writing our essays during class (it was assigned one week before it’s due – Junior year for you), and I forgot my book at home. So Lana and I e-mailed back and forth funny things, like this book, which is a journal for your cat. I about busted a gut while reading the description. The company also makes a Jane-A-Day Journal, where a Jane Austen quote is featured every day. Pretty awesome.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Only at my school…

So get ready for this. Get your headphones out and get ready for a lot of laughing. Now go watch this video. During lunch, my friend asked me if I had seen it, and then she started singing it… let’s just say I almost pissed my pants. And then she showed me the video, and it got worse. Then right before class started (during lunch) my friends and I went into one of the classrooms and watched it, and when the teacher came in we were all laughing and shut the laptop really quickly because let’s just say… it’s not teacher-friendly (don’t worry though). And then he ran over to the laptop and tried to open it… only at my school 🙂

Also, my band seating auditions are tomorrow… so nervous!

Here’s the songs I’m playing

Delibes, March and Procession of Bacchus – 1:29 is my favorite part

Beethoven, Symphony No. 1, Allegro Con Brio – 2:06 is where we start

Handel, Largo – So slow

Until next time, Em 🙂
