Worst day ever.
Me and my partner had to present on three poems: Acquainted with the Night, Nothing Gold Can Stay, and Fire and Ice. We split up the poems so that she did AQWTN, I did NGCS, and we both did FAI.
Our presentation was going smoothly. We went from FAI to AQWTN, to NGCS. We only forgot to explain the slide design for FAI, but I figured that was okay. The we got the NGCS and the shiba started.
I presenting NGCS… but when I get to the fourth to last slide, I saw this HUGE chunk of writing from my explication. And then the last three slides were completely blank.
Why? ‘Cause when we were working on it, I had sent her an unfinished version and then a finished version of the NGCS ppt. Well she put both versions on her flash drive. And then she told Grunseth to open the wrong version. So there I was, winging it on my last three slides. And I panicked and a let a “whatever” and a few “like”s slip past my mouth. Shit.
After the presentation, I went up to Grunseth and told her that there were two versions of the ppt on the flash drive. And she just looked at me and said, “I asked you guys which version it was. I grade what I see.”
I already got a zero on a research paper. I needed the points.Because of this, I probably have a C in the class. Goodbye AP Rhet. Goodbye good colleges. I’ll just go to effing Mount Sac and become a effing burger flipper. Eff this.
Eff having to speak professional. Eff my partner’s carelessness. Eff Grunseth’s nonunderstanding (what’s the opposite of understanding?) nature. Eff my life.
And when I get home and go on facebook, I see a wall post from her saying how she’s so sorry for all this “poop” and how she’ll bring me a cookie the next day to make up for this. Seriously? A cookie won’t raise my grade. A cookie won’t get me into AP Rhet. A cookie won’t convince Grunseth to pity me. All a cookie will do is make me fat. And I don’t need that.
Can you take this more seriously? You ruined my grade.
AP Bio powerpoint @Preethi’s!
Finished super fast, then started camwhoring on her laptop and watching youtube vids of spring concert and glee. haha!
Sorry I kept falling asleep on you Preefy :(
May 20 and 21 (still catching up -_- )
SPRING CONCERT ♥
I loved this. So much. I love you all. I miss you all. Oh my gosh ♥
We started with our competition set. Oh man. Before the curtains rose on Friday, we were all behind the curtains crying and hugging each other. And then when we heard Ashcon announcing us, we hurridly wiped away our tears and ran to our spots. My voice kept cracking during our acapella ‘cause I was crying hahaa! It was so hard forcing that smile on my face when all I wanted to do was dissolve into a sobbing puddle and hug everyone… that didn’t make sense. Whatever. You get what I mean. Haha! :D But it was our last performance together. So I thought, you better put all of your heart into this and smiled like a crazy person and sang superrr loud.
I loved our 80s show the most (: …And my outfit. I looked cute, hehehe ^___^ LOL jk. HAHA! I wore this big bow I got at F21. Vickie helped me do my hair. It was just a side ponytail though. Vickie’s so freaking good at hair. Goddess of beautiful hairrr! ♥
Walking On Sunshine was fun. Our choreo was a bit stupid though since freaking Alexis choreographed it. She… doesn’t know crap. HAHHAA. I hated it when she was here.
The Way You Make Me Feel! One of my favorites! ♥ Dancing with Ashcon was really fun. I was super shy around him though. Too bad I didn’t get to know him better ): We rocked that stage though(:
America is the stupidest crap ever. We’re just pumping our fists in the air and shouting “TODAY!” HAHHAHAA. It was so stupid. The audience probably thought we were effing weird when we were in the aisles LOL.
Celebrate! I love this song. It’s so fun♥ I was in the aisles near the front of the stage(: I hate how barely anyone in Marquis knows it though. We went over it in class and practice! And it’s honestly not that hard to memorize -__- Oh well, they made me look good. HAHHAA jk … kinda :D I think I almost hit a girl in the face at “a celebration to last throughout the year” LOL.
What was next? I don’t remember. I’m just gonna say Let’s Hear it for the Boy. MY FAVEEE♥ besides Smooth Criminal, The Way You Make Me Feel and Thriller :D I’m like, dead center AND in the front. That’s a first :D I love dancing all cutesy like. HAHA! I loved our ending pose. Me and Brittany made a heart and Camille in the back posed in the middle. Super funsss♥
MICHAEL JACKSON MEDLEY! ♥♥♥ I loved it! …Except for Beat It. Alexis. Can’t. Choregraph. She pretty much ruined that song for me -____-“ It’s just three clumps of people pulsing, a select group of people dancing, more pulsing, a few seconds of choreo from the mv, more pulsing, and then us doing the bodyroll thing from the mv, and weird punching things. Transitions were super bad. We looked like one big MOB of people. Aimee fixed it a bit though. After Beat It was Thriller! ♥ I didn’t like everyone wass SCREAMING in the transition though. Zombies don’t scream high-pitched screams at the top of their lungs. They like… moan. HAHAHA! Idk how to describe it. A few screams are okay, but everyone should not be screaming. Whatever, it’s not that big of deal (: I think Solitaire should have danced the little dance thing Marquis did during the song’s opening too. I liked the head jerks :D I just loved this song. And then it was SMOOTH CRIMINAL♥ If I had to pick my favorite favorite favorite song, it would be this one (: Only one thing pissed me off. The guy in front of me (no names!) was not into it AT ALL. And he didn’t even know the choreo. I knew it perfectly. Foo, you be blockin’ me from the audience! You should AT LEAST know the right time to switch feet and crap like that. I wanted to ask him to switch spots with me SO BAD. But then I felt bad ‘cause he really likes choir ): asdfghjkl. I loved the ending pose. One person would lie down and hold another person’s legs, who would then lean forward. Supah cools 8D Acker was the one holding me so I was scared he would drop me. But he actually reassured me. I guess he’s not that scary. HAHAHA! Yayy, super fun (:
Then it was Don’t Stop Believing! I really wish Breitag didn’t take out the “da da da”s ): Those were what made people think, “GLEE!” But whatevss. It was all good (:
Then it was Wind Beneath My Wings. Oh shizzles. On Thursday I was giggling because none of us knew the words. But on Friday… I was singing so loudly ‘cause I was trying not to cry. But then once the song ended and I hugged Simone, they just started pouring down my face.
I love you all. I miss you all. There will never be another Marquis like this one :) ♥♥
…Isn’t it funny how everyone on tumblr is in Solitarie, not Marquis? HAHAA! Whateverrss. Karen will be joining me next year! ♥
THIS IS A CATCHUP POST.
I hate being behind on tumblr. It takes so long to catch up. And because of my OCDness, I have to post in chronological order. I want to post about senior circles and the spring concert already! ): And to make things worse, I had finished typing this blog and then firefox decided to crash. So here I am retyping this shiba -__-
Warning: This is gonna be superrr long!
Best day ever♥
I was really excited ‘cause I hadn’t been to Disney since… elementary school O__O
Got picked up with Vickie, Vivian, and Jessie at DBHS by Lin. When we were going into the parking space, there was this family in a van in the lane next to us – two little girls, another girl around our age, and a lady. The two little girls were just staring at us. So we were like UHH O__O And then Lin waved to them and they started cracking up. LOOLL. And then we noticed that their plates were from South Carolina! Aww, they were all vacationing here. Sho cutez ^___^ Then they were directed to a parking space next to us. So when we got out, the mom was like, “Can you take her (the oldest daughter) with you guys?” ahahaha! They’re so nice and friendly. I guess this was the Southern hospitality Watkins mentioned in class one time :D We saw them a few more times, but we were never able to get a picture with them ): I love our SC friends!
Well, we bought our tickets and went in! While we were walking on Main Street, we hear, “Fellow friends! We meet again!” We turn around and the oldest daughter is waving at us. Their family’s riding the leedo horse carriage ride things. Haha! So cute :)
We went on pretty much everything – Haunted Mansion(x2), Pirates of the Caribean,Big Thunder Mountain Railroad(x2), Pocahontas Canoe Ride thing, Splash Mountain, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Indiana Jones, Alice in Wonderland, “It’s a Small World,” King Arthur Carousel, Mad Tea Party(x2), Matterhorn Bobsleds(x2 or 3), Snow White’s Scary Adventures, Innoventions, and last but definitely not least, Space Mountain(x3). We ate chowder and gumbo at Royal Street Veranda. I had clam chowder. It was DELISH♥ Also bought a frozen strawberry lemonade cup! I LOVE FROZEN STRAWBERRY LEMONADE NOW. It was so good! ♥I wanted to go in the Enchanted Tiki Room, but they didn’t want to. Called it lame. I happen to like colorful tropical birds singing catchy songs :( “In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room!” :D
First we went to Space Mountain. Rode that two times. Then Jeff, Taehong, and Evangeline joined us.. but T&E went off by themselves so Jeff just stayed with us so he wouldn’t be third-wheeling. Asdfghkjl. I don’t want to blog about each individual ride and I doubt you’ll want to read about it. So I’ll just blog the important stuff :)
Haunted Mansion. HAHAHA. Oh goshh x] We were standing in line and one of the workers, Kristian, was there too. He looked dead. And mean. Like, there was no emotion AT ALL. And Jessie was like, “HI KRISTIAN!” And he just slowly turned around and gave her the death glare. HAHAHHAHAHA! In the ride, we were SO OBNOXIOUS. It was kind of embarrassing. We were those annoying teenagers you wish would shut up. Vivian was taking pictures with flash. We were talking and laughing loudly. Jessie wished for a cute prom date for next year really loudly at the part with the lady’s head in the crystal ball. Jessie and I imitated the cawing birds loudly. On the second time, we were scared Kristian would pop out of nowhere. So when a ghost popped out from behind a tombstone, Me and Jessie SCREAMED. Hahaha!
Pcoahontas Camoe Ride. There’s this worker there named Anthony with the most beautiful green eyes. So dreamy. He wears moccasins too. I think that’s so cute, even if they’re part of his Pocahontas-y costume :D♥♥
They changed It’s a Small World SO MUCH. The dolls look newer. And it seems longer than I remembered from way back when. It takes you on a journey through all the continents. It’s cute. I like it (:
Snow White. That witch is so freaking scary. Holy mother effer. They all warned me she was scary. But I still screamed. ‘Cause when you first see her, you see her back. And it was her queen form. So I thought, ooohh, pretty! And then she turns around and you see her grotesque witch face smiling creepily at you. OMG. And guess what? I was on the side she turned to. HAHH. Just my luck. So I screamed so effing loud. HAHHA.
King Arthur Carousel. Merry-Go-Rounds are so relaxing. And they’re perfect for scoping out cute guys. HAHHAHA
I blew out Vivian’s ears on Splash Mountain. My badddd .__.
Pixie Hollow is the cutest place to have a photoshoot. Next time I go to Disney, I HAVE TO take 1203571093294907 pictures there (:
Innoventions. We spent so much time in the kitchen blasting Taylor Swift songs and singing along. HAHA! And then this employee comes out from the emergency exit and looks at us. And then the first thing he says is, “WHOA. ASIANS. MY PEOPLE!” HAHAHA! So we took two pictures with him and promised to add him on facebook (we did) HAHHA! His name’s Ricky Trann with two Ns(:
Space Mountain. We rode that ride three times. It was my first time riding it. Screamed my lungs out. Apparently, on our second time riding it, Vickie had yelled, “Angela, shut up!” HAHA -___-“ It’s so scurry D: But it’s fun (: I could never figure out where the camera was, so I was always screaming in the pictures. LOL. The third time we went, it was at night. The fireworks started going off while we were in line so I had to duck to be able to see. It was so pretty♥ I wanted to be able to sit under a blanket and watch them explode above my head though ): Well, at least I got to see it right? (: While waiting in line, Lin and Jeff had a light saber fight in the middle of the little clearing thing the line goes around. And then a worker broke it up HAHHAA! Such nerdsss -__-“
Oh, and did I mention I saw PETER PAN? ♥♥♥♥ Not close up though ): I saw him in the parade. He was on the top of a float with Wendy. SHO CUTE ^______^♥
Oh and Lin proposed to Pocahontas b/c she’s SO PRETTY. He got down on one knee and gave her a flower. haha! She was like, “You are so kind, but you must speak with my father. He only chooses the bravest warriors” LOOLL
Disney was sooo tiring. My feet hurt. It was a really good day(:
I saw an old Catholic priest being helped up the church steps by a young man.
At the top he turned to the young man and said “God bless you.” The young man smiled nervously and said “I’m Muslim.”
The priest smiled back and said “Allah bless you then.”
Their religious tolerance GMH.
Tolerance makes me happy♥ ♥ ♥
We need more of it in this world.
I have so much to catch up on! Starting from the dance concert on the fourteenth.
Can I just say that I effing loved the duet Clay and Kelley danced? It was called Off the Rails. OMG IT WAS THE CUTEST THING EVER!♥ I cried ‘cause it was so freaking cute. Did anyone record it? GAHHH. I want to watch it again. It was so good. And cute. And just. Ohmygosh.
And I loved every single dance Jeremy Calimbas was in. HAHAHAA. He’s so freaking good. I feel like a creeper for saying this ‘cause I don’t even talk to him, but whatever. He’s just so good at dancing. It makes me feel all giddy. Hahaha! Musikility (Swag Overload) was the beesstttt! And Jeremy’s brother is the cutest ever. Every single time Jeremy got on stage, his brother shouted something like ‘YEAHH, THAT’S MY LITTLE BROTHER!” Ahhh, so cute♥ :D
And dude. Olivia, Kaitlyn, and Briezy are AMAZINGG together.
And I understand why every single guy loves that freshman Kylie Montoya. She’s a cutie. And she’s an amazing dancer. Holy crap man.
Let Me was amazing. I’ve always loved that dance. The music, the sharp movements, everything. hahaa!
Purgatory. Just wow. Raymond is extremely talented. WOWW. So is Hayley!
Fireflies danced by AMDC was just love♥
Watching people dance well makes me feel awed and jealous at the same time. If only I could do that… ):
