Over the past three weeks, I have read the entire book, Anthem, written by Ayn Rand and 137 pages of Best Seat in the House written by Allen Rucker.

I am so sorry that I haven’t been able to come on, write, update the website, write the overview, or finish up the meeting slideshow, but I will get it all done some time…I have just been so consumed with homework, babysitting, band things, etc. I really hate how busy this school year is keeping me. I have no time to myself because I do homework from the moment I get home all the way until I go to bed, and even then, I usually don’t have it all done…As I said before, when I have the time, I will most likely cook up a rant.

Week 48

Dude, I have been so busy, I didn’t even have the time to do a Check Up! Seriously, I didn’t mean to miss it, and I did remember it, I have just been so swarmed with life and stuff that I haven’t been able to do much of anything else.

This also means writing, so this week from November 18 to November 24, 2007 I only managed to write a total of 2,515 words. Most of it is on my third chapter of The Club which I am still working on.

I officially decided last night that this school year is the worst I have had for a few reasons. The bell just rang though, so I have to return to my busy life. Maybe I will have the time to type up a rant later on…

This week from November 11, to November 17, 2007, I wrote 1,352 words on Magic Pens and 3,020 words off to make a total of 4,372 words.

I read the last 65 pages of The Grapes of Wrath written by John Steinbeck, but then re-read 206 pages again making a total of 271 pages.

I’m sorry that I didn’t do more than that, but I was really busy and was once again bombarded with a lot of homework.

I will be posting a meeting overview of the meeting once I am finished typing this up, so look for it soon.

Oh, and I also read like 20 pages or so from Timeline written by Michael Crichton.

Week 42

Yay for me…I wrote a total of 3,628 words from October 7 to October 13, 2007, and that’s only because of the research paper for English class. 🙁

I was so swamped with homework once again. Seriously, what is frickin’ up with this year!? Gah, I have been doing homework from 4:00pm (when I get home from school,) until 10:30pm, (when I go to bed,) every single school night! That’s just not right…I haven’t had time for anything lately, and I am just so stressed out.

Week 41

"Timeline" by Michael Crichton

“Timeline” by Michael Crichton

Once again, I was consumed with homework and I even got a new and better notebook for my handwritten Spanish dictionary for Spanish class, so I was working on converting the 80 pages of Spanish words over to the new notebook. I’ve only gotten 30 pages finished so far.

Anyways, this week from September 30, to October 6, 2007, I have written only 364 words.

I also read 36 pages of Timeline written by Michael Crichton.

Week 40

From September 22, to September 29, 2007, I only wrote 171 words.

Go ahead, stone me…

I also read 46 pages of Timeline written by Michael Crichton and a whole lot from many different texts for a research paper I am doing. I do, however, have a lame excuse as to why I didn’t write much this week…

Last Monday, my science teacher, Mr. Spooner, gave us a project to show comparisons of humans to animals in either a video or a live presentation in front of the class with a posterboard. He didn’t give us a syllabus until Tuesday or Wednesday, and the project was due four days later on that Friday. I created a video presentation, and I spent 14 hours making it. Although I rushed it, I spent all my time on the project, not having any time left over for my other homework, anything fun, or anything else. Mr. Spooner was very proud with my project, though, and I got a 50/50 on it. 😀 Anyways, here is the final project…

If it doesn’t work here, watch it on the YouTube page, here!

For my project, I drew this sabertoothed cat and could only use 29 seconds of this 3:21 video, (which actually took my an hour to draw in real-life.)

Week 39

"Timeline" by Michael Crichton

“Timeline” by Michael Crichton

I also read 45 pages of Timeline written by Michael Crichton.

I really want to redo some of my webpages, which would make me want to rewrite the stories too, but I have too much other stuff to do right now. 🙁

Week 38

I bet you anything this word count will be low…

Let’s see, this week from September 9, to September 15, 2007, I wrote a total of…let me calculate it…610 words.

Yup, I was right…pathetic. To be honest, there were many times that I sat down to write, but nothing came to me…It was late at night, the lights were off, my music was on, I was in “the zone” but nothing…I always get into writing moods after seeing a really cool, well though-out movie and I watched Unbreakable by M. Night Shyamalan and I always get into a writing mood after seeing one of his movies. He is one of the coolest writers, even though it’s movies, not books. Anyway, I also saw Surf’s Up, loved the music so much and looked it up online only finding that it was composed by Mychael Danna, but couldn’t download it and it’s not being sold. Darn it! Well, I was listening to some samples of it which also wanted to make me write since it’s such awesome music.

So, reading…I read the last 75 pages of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, 45 pages of Timeline written by Michael Crichton, and 90 pages of Type a Little Faster, Volume II: 2006-2007 by the Minot High School Magic Pens. 😀
