Yay...I'm finally home.

It's been a long day...starting bright and early at 9:30 when I woke up.

I sketched the Renoir with colored pencils...I think I mentioned that earlier. Then chatted online a bit.

At 3:15, I went with Eric and Goldy to buy food for the Production Party. Zach met us at Sam's Club and we got all the necessary items...cake, chips, soda, candy. Got back to school at 4:45-ish. Zach, Eric and I set up the cafeteria for the party, and we were done at about 5:30. However, call is 6, so I didn't have time to go home. I changed into all black (because it's my actual costume, otherwise I would have been a little more formal. boo.)

The show went well. Tons less stress. There were a few mistakes, but nothing huge, and the audience probably didn't even notice.

Strike went well also. This is when all the parts of the Production help to take apart everything. The band unsets and cleans the pit. The actors clean the costume shop and their areas of the world. The crew takes down the set, and cleans their areas of the world. Everything went pretty quick.

Production party was good. A lot of people actually stayed, which was impressive. Most parties are held at someone's house, but for STUNTS, because it's so varied and there isn't one cast, we contain it to the school cafeteria. Very good turn out. Yay! We kicked everyone out at midnight...because it was past curfew, so that Eric, Zach and I could clean up. (Also apparently in the job description....) There was a small group of bandies that stayed. I'm friends, or at least acquaintances with most of them, so we played some cards and stuff (Egyptian Rat Screw, Mofia and Zummi-Zummi) after cleaning, and Eric made us leave at 1.

After the final shut down of everything, I got out of there at 1:15. And now I'm home, and exhausted, and I was in a good mood, but now it's sort of blah. I wasn't going to open my PSAT results because I was in too good of a mood, in case they aren't good. But I could go either way right why not?

*scurries upstairs to retrieve ominous-looking envelope*.

Hmmm...89th percentile. Score of 184. Not bad, I guess.
Writing Skills=78%

Ouch. I need to improve my writing skills. And I want to, too...but the school offers no extra grammar courses or anything.

Ouch again. "Your pattern of correct and incorrect answers does not provide clear evidence about you specific strengths and weaknesses." I got that on both Math and Verbal.

It's things like these that make me think I'd do better in a math field than an english one...but then I realize that my B in Calculus and C in Physics suck compared to my A in English, B+ in History and A in Theatre. I just enjoy those more, so I'm better at them. Attitude is everything.

Okay, I'm sleepy. Time for bed. Good night everyone!

Christmas Tree: 15/50 Snowman: 0/50 Santa Claus: 20/50 Reindeer: 15/50 Mistletoe: 10/50 Star: 10/50

Take the What in Christmas Are You? test by webkin and aaronr!
Beloved</u> and do a page essay. I also have 4 Physics assignments from the week.

I have decided that if it weren't for homework, I would be happy all the time. This morning (well, 11-ish when I woke up), I was sitting in my living room with my parents and watching an American History for Kids game show thing, on the History channel, and I was completely content. I could have stayed there for hours. Then are started thinking about homework and it was honestly instant depression. To the point that I wanted to start crying. And had my parents not been there, I would have. Even now thinking about it, my stress level just sky rocketed and I have the unshakable feeling of dread in my stomach.

Just 5 more days....come on, Gail. You can deal with 5 days. That's nothing...

But I haven't done any Christmas shopping. Zip. Zero. Zilch. And I won't be able to this week, I have school, then Musical rehearsal, and homework. And a Chorus concert on Wednesday night. Saturday the 22nd will be my power shopping day. I'll need to get money from Mommy. I hate not having an income. I feel like such an independent....oh well, tax break for mama.

I have to go before I give myself an aneurysm in my back...I'm definitely tense now. Dammit, why do I do this to myself? Blah.

But I love Christmas *small smile?*

You've got to get yourself together....

Yes. Yes I do. Thank you.

Anywho...just came from Ci's. Her kittens are the cutest!!!! Miss Rose, the black one, is bigger, about Tigger-size. She's so precious, and adorable, and cuddly, and I think she really likes me. Yay.

JC is tiny. Like tiny-tiny. And he's all scruffy haired. And such the spazz....Hmmm...Am I talking about the cat or the Puppy? Ahahaha!

Sometimes I crack myself up. Whew *wipes forehead*

I actually got my Physics, calculus and history homework done before going to Allie's. Then we finished our French artist box (I finished my sketch later at Ci's. But it's done now. Took about 3 and a half hours, total. Yikes.) I got home, ate Chinese for dinner...yum, and went to Ci's. I finished my French thing and the rest of Physics there. I haven't done English yet. Guess the last 9 chapters of Beloved aren't getting read. *sigh*

Honestly, it's not like I'm being a slack. I would do all of my homework, but find me the frickin' time!!

I'm sleepy. Going to go do homework, then shower, then hopefully bed by 1. Yay five and a half hours of sleep. Blar.
