I am Dougs Wednesday guest this week! If you want to check it out, check out his blog. :D
(For the time being, I am trying to not use/take out all apostrophes from my posts due to coding problems my blog is experiencing, so please; excuse improper grammar and punctuations. :))
Clear The Road! The Bookworm is 16!
Well, you can delay clearing the road for a while; your cars are safe - for now at least until I get my permit :D I am now 16. Yeah, you heard me; I have been around for 16 long years.
I know that all you bloggers out there are going to get an eyeful of Happy Birthday to the Twins posts knowing my
crazy Pez family. Gotta love those guys. ;)
Greetings From Mexico!
I wonder how long it will take for everyone to realize I´ve posted :D I am using a Spanish keyboard to type this post, and everything on this computer is Spanish (Including this site and spell check) so bear with me. I´m in Tepoztlan right now, and having a blast. Mexico is a very lovely country, and I think I actually perfer the weather here; it´s hot, but not humid, and whenever it rains, it´s always preceded by a great deal of thunder. I miss being in the states,(yes, the states. I accidently started using this phrase after hanging around with the Canadians that are here too much.)but I really do like it here. I miss the internet though. :P Maybe I´ll post some picture when I get back ;)
Goa´uld says hi.
Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, Off to Disney I Go!
I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted in… forever. I guess there really isn’t any excuse for it. (I may be busy, but I’m not THAT busy :P) Well, Goa’uld and me are off to Disney till Wednesday for our marching band. We get to march in Magic Kingdom, and everyone’s REALLY excited. :D When I get back I’m hopefully going to get back into the habit of blogging more often. I might to a review for V for Vendetta later on, and I KNOW I’ll eventually do a review for the game Kingdom Hearts II, which was AMAZING. Goa’uld and me basically spend every last moment of our free time for a little more then a week beating that game, but it was worth every second. :) Now we’ll have to wait several MORE years for the third installment to come out. –sighs- Oh well. I’ll also be sure to give you guys a post once I come back from Florida. ;) Hopefully I’ll start up the Quote of the Week again too…
Quote of the Week- Teachers
The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book. -Author Unknown
Question: What makes a good teacher? What should or shouldn’t a teacher be like?
(The reason I am doing a teacher quote this week, is because our Western Cultures teacher just quit his job, and now we have a new teacher. Also, our German teacher, whom everyone adores, has announced that she will be retiring at the end of this year. PLUS this year our class is the first to have the new 9th grade English teacher. With all these new teachers, it got me thinking, what should a good teacher be?)
Quote of the Week- Presidential Quote
Since today is President’s day here in the U.S, I simply HAD to do a quote from a president. :P
"People talk about the middle of the road as though it were unacceptable. Actually, all human problems, excepting morals, come into the gray areas. Things are not all black and white. There have to be compromises. The middle of the road is all of the usable surface. The extremes, right and left, are in the gutters."
-Eisenhower, Dwight D
Question: Would you agree with this? Are all problems in the gray areas? What exceptions to this rule are there in life? (What things must be either all black or white?)
(As a side note, I apologize that my posts look all funny and littered with symbols and such. I'm trying to figure out what's causing it, and hopefully it'll be fixed soon.)
Quote of the Week- Happy Valentine's Day
Love means nothing in tennis, but it's everything in life. ~Author Unknown
(Heh, Tennis Humor. :P)
Well, Since it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow… I thought I might give a try at a “love” quote. The reason I chose this quote was since this is the first year really that my group of friends has really discovered the ‘dating’ world. We’re young, and we don’t quite get the whole “love” thing yet… but still I’ve heard my friends use the big “L” Word to describe a relationship they’re in… Then there’s the annoying situations my friends get themselves in where they say the “like” so-in-so, but when the ‘man or women of their dreams’ finally returns the feeling… they tell me that they think they don’t ‘like them like that’ anymore, leaving them in a rather awkward position. Plus, I know a few 6th Graders
who already have steady boyfriends.
So, my Question is this: Can people my age (High Schoolers/Middle Schoolers.) Really understand the true meaning/concept of real love?
