Michael Jackson.
Is dead today.
June 25, 2009.
He was 50.

Please, a moment of silence as we remember the accomplishments of the King of Pop.

Billie Jean. Smooth Criminal. Beat It. THRILLER.
The Moonwalk.
Over 750 MILLION hits sold.
13 NUMBER ONE singles.

And I can't believe how badly everyone judged him. We don't even know for sure if he did all those things that he was accused of, and even if he did, there are PLENTY more people who have done far worse things and not been punished at all. Apparently, when he was supposed to have an interview a couple years ago, he canceled last minute. The Interviewer went to his hotel, and found MJ on the couch in a fetal position with the blinds closed. How can people stand to judge someone so far that they are afraid of the world. Scared of what will happen if they walk outside.

Now we bow our heads in sorrow as we remember the King of Pop. He will live forever through my, and plenty other fans', headphones

Counselor: STEVE!!! :D He's duper awesome. He's a vegetarian. what an inspiration. He plays like tons of instruments (his day job is playing and teaching some). He's really funny. Glad I got him. AC is Charlee. She's cool, don't know her well. SHE WAS IN PRINCESS DIARIES II AND STILL GETS $ FOR IT. (she knew the director).

Group: All 13 are senior outpost, i'll try to name all of them
  • Ally Thornton
  • Hannah Leis
  • Lena Novak
  • Shannon Kennedy (something like that)
  • Yari Something
  • Will Gifford
  • Me
  • Maya Dunn
  • Macall Conroy
  • Josh Something
  • Joe Something
  • Richard Something
  • OH NO I FORGOT THE LAST ONE D: i feel bad
Noah ain't in my group, he's in Bristol's (she is super awesome too, she was my bus driver 2 years ago. She drinks like two red bulls every day) I kind of feel bad for him, he has like NO friends in his group. lol.

We played RUN THE GAUNTLET which is a game involving foam dodgeballs and cones. Two teams, one throwing team, one running team. The cones are put in two lines to form a about 7 foot wide column. The runners run through the column of cones while the throwers pelt the dodgeballs at them. Obviously, the goal is to not get hit, but there's a catch. Even if it bounces or rolls, and hits you, you're still out. If you touch the ball, you're out. Epic. Fun.

We found a fort. Its...THAT way. -points in all directions-

Bus route Mon Wed Fri is pretty okay. consists of:
  • Me
  • Miriam Baha
  • Sammy something
  • L...something
  • Izzy (Isabella)
  • Ella
  • Liam
  • Alexander
  • Little Kid who i don't know their name

I can't have front seat this year cause Miriam has first priority for shotgun cause she's a JC. Darng it.


It's so weird seeing former group y'rs being JC's and like pool staff. And Gary, an SC. crazy pants.

begins: tomorrow at 8.
driver: Brian (i think he's a newbie to TSC)

Seems like a lot of the older counselors have left to begin their lives, meaning tons of new counselors this year. I really hope i get Steve--one of the guys who have been their for like EVER. He plays like a ton of instruments and he's really cool.

movie rating: Food Inc.
This is one eye opener. It's motto: "You'll look at dinner the same way again." This movie told the story about how industry is making food, bigger, faster, and cheaper, which is killing us (the buyers) slowly. It showed secret cameras placed behind the scenes at meat slaughter houses. It told the story about how most of all the foods we eat are just re-assembled versions of corn, and how even the meat we eat eats corn (cows and stuff aren't supposed to eat corn--they are supposed to eat grass, and corn helps spread horrible diseases like E-ColIi)
The film lived up to it's motto, i will never look at food the same way. I am actually considering becoming a veg head :D

watch this movie. be shown the life behind the curtain hiding the horrible things being done in the food industry.

Get Back

Demi Lovato.
The cheesy (and by cheesy i mean smiles a lot. heh, remember the indian in dances with wolves named smiles a lot?) Disney teen pop sensation. She's an actor and singer. And most people I know don't really like her. Those people are so biased.


Lemme tell you something.
Demi Lovato is pretty much the ONE disney star i actually admire.

She sticks to her morals, has great talent as a music artist, as well as a singer, and most of all HASN'T BECOME COMPLETELY CORRUPTED AND SELF ABSORBED BY THE STARDOM. I mean seriously, i couldn't even compare her to Miley Cyrus, who is so vain and careless.

Also, Miley even made fun of Demi and Selena (selena is pretty okay too) in one of her web shows. Seriosuly, that tells you how nice Miley and her like 30 year old "best friend" are. Anyways Miley didn't even mention "Mandy (if that is your real name)" in that song See You Again when she's like "My BEST FRIEND LESLIE says she's just bein' Miley"

Also, Miley's music, EXCEPT FOR THE CLIMB WHICH I'M PRETTY SURE SHE TOTALLY DIDN'T WRITE (like she has the brain power to), is all like crap stuff that once again, she didn't write. "Everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days." God she's stupid.

But Demi's music is actually really good. I know i'm going to have a bunch of people laugh in my face and say something like "HAHA YOU LIKE DEMI LOVATO'S MUSIC HOW LAME" but really, try listening to it. It ranges from sad hearfelt songs (with actual depth unlike miley's crap) all the way to loud "disney punk rock" music about how she doesn't want to turn into a star, and how she's still a normal person (who wears her converse with her dress. heh, great line)

I hope this little blog changed your mind about this star. If not, listen to her music. I GUAREANTEE that you will think it's better than Miley's "music." Hearing her music changed my mind, hope it changes yours.

SUMMER (sucks)

Summer. Fun in the sun. No school. Always with the friends. Running on the beach. Vacations to tropical islands. Yup, living the good life.

Not for someone named Liana Kindler.

Summer, so far, for her is like this. Wake up at 1-ish in the afternoon. Lay around until about 1:30. Get up and have some breakfa---lunch. Slack off (surf the web, watch tv, etc) until about 11. Begin F-R-E-N-D-S marathon. Go to bed around 3:30 AM. Repeat.

Let's face the sad truth.
Summer Blows.

Seriously. I haven't seen anyone other than Libby (WHICH WAS REALLY FUN BOTH TIMES.) or the fam bam since grad night. How pathetic. Well I'm duper excited for FNL tomorrow, even though it'll probably just be me, Libby, Kirstie, Umi, and Lauren. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers. :P Just kidding, you guys are frigging sweet.

Camp starts this coming Monday! Whoo hoo! I guess I get to be a smidge more social than I am already (haha, me. social.) Pretty excited to see everyone again, its been like a year. Don't know who i'm gonna get as a counsler (hopefully Steve or Christina). Nervous but excited (LIKE AT GRAD)

Saturday (yes I do know that this is totally not in order at all) I got a trumpet sectional meeting for marching band. Yes, that's right bring on the feather bucket hats and the uniforms! Well not really, but we're going over some basics and the music at the section leader's house. I feel kind of bad for putting everone through this huge hassle. But, sometimes camp gets in the way of important stuff (like band camp). I am actually sort of sad to miss band camp. Gosh I'm a nerd.

Oh jeez i just realized something.
I'm a freshman.
Oh man.
High School.
New Meat.
Fresh Start?

Oh Lord, save me now.

Sorry for this being really late.

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of the night in June
I Didn't know much of love, but it came too soon
And There was me and you, and then it got real blue
Stay at home talkin' on the telephone and
We would get so excited, we'd get so scared
Laughing at our selves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

Dear Vitamin C,
Your sappy lyrics made me tear up on grad night. Thanks. I think the DJ was trying to kill all of us in the room. I'm surprised that the whole room didn't burst into tears. I mean, it IS the end for a lot of us. Like for Libby, it was the last year, no, the last few moments, that we were going to be students together. Also, what convinced you to write this song anyways? I mean, you guys probably didn't even all go to school together.

Sincerely (or at least until next graduation),

Ok, grad was too important to skip out and blog about it like two days later, so I’m doing this blog prior to posting it on word (it’s 12:46 and the wi fi is off, which means no internet, ergo, no blogging). Grad was fun-ish. As I told Andrea, I was nervous but excited. Dress. Felita and Libbz had the same one. Oh well. Felita’s was a bit more awkward though, she sat DIRECTLY behind me. Doug and Alyssa screwed up their oratoricals COMPLETELY. oh crap, my eyes are getting all drifty, which means I need to sleep. FINISH TOMORROW(or not)! –pause at 12:50 for sleep-

OKAY WELL NOW...VERY LATER (as in not tomorrow) I gotta finish this blog. Grad ceremony was really long and really short at the same time. It seemed to go pretty quickly, the oratoricals dragged on and on. Nate and Sean's speeches were really good. Carrie's design was nice. McG's speech was decent. Asian guy's speech was hard to understand and slightly forgettable. The diplomas were trés lame. Like, they were smaller than the certificates. The water bottle cantene thing was....HEY SCHOOL WHY COULDN'T YOU HAVE SPENT A LITTLE LESS MONEY ON WATER CONTAINER THINGS AND MORE ON LARGER DIPLOMAS?! Oh well, i guess its nice. I'll use it at camp. PS WHERE WAS DOWNEY? and i never got to take my picture with dr. mcdaniel and angee and lauren.

Went to islands with Noah and his mom and the family. Our waiter was kind of weird. He used the word radicle. I ordered the maui (his suggestion) and it was yummy. TV with laker game was really far away, so Noah, being the lazy bum he was, wasted 99 cents on a phone app. I think in the end they tied (?) Or they won. YEAH THEY WON. Drove Noah over there.

Grad party was okay. After going to about 23 of them last/this year, nothing is really exciting. Pictures we took were funny. Nate asking Eden to dance and her responding yes not knowing what she was agreeing to was priceless. (and no they didn't dance) Running around with Nate through the crowd of slow dancers DURING GRADUATION SONG (WAAAHHH) to look at all the people slow dancing and rate them was priceless. Blackjack. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. Blackjack wouldn't let me freaking leave. Every time I tried to leave by putting all in, i ended up getting like a 20 or even a blackjack. I'M TELLING YOU IT WAS RIGGED. haha. I was actually oddly exhausted after and fell asleep right after doing that little paragraph blog. Graduation song went on. People slow danced. Nate and I did our "run through crowd and see everyone slow dancing." Song ended. People abandonned the teeny tiny dance floor. Doorway got clogged. Me and friendsies stayed and talked a little. Gave chunkie a hug (which never happens) Left when everyone was done saying goodbye. Libby drove me home. Almost hit a creeper cat.

Today is grad. And the last day of middle school. And Lindsays birthday (more on that later on).

1: a mark on an instrument or vessel indicating degrees or quantity ; also : these marks
2 a
: the award or acceptance of an academic degree or diploma b: commencement
: arrangement in degrees or ranks

Today's graduation will feature the SECOND definition of graduation. Oh jeez. Graduation. The end of middle school. I can't say that I'm 100% excited for high school. I can't say that I REALLY want to leave middle school. These three years that I've spent here I have taken for granted, and now, now, its over. The passing period Natelborg runs, the Wind Ensemble with Dr. McD, the annoying cafeteria lady with the glasses and high pitched voice that never lets you get away with anything, coach yelling at us to get our socks on, the timed runs. All of these are now just a memory from a distant time. Even though there were many horrible, boring, and horribly boring things, I will miss it very VERY much. The friends I've made here are pretty much the biggest bomb on the entire earth. I am SO SO SO SO SO SAD THAT LIBBY IS LEAVING US :[ I can't imagine school without her random-ness. So, yeah. Its the end. Not even the beginning of the end. The plain old end. But on a brighter note, every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end. Who knows what's in store at the good 'ol high school? I'm looking forward to all the adventures to come at SMHS. I'm sure it'll all be fun.


Lindsay's bday--
I got her present and her card. I hope she likes them. I am so trying to send her a text at 9 and if i forget i will be very angry.

More on grad later (seeing that it hasn't happened yet) I'm sure it will be a complete sob fest. I made a bet with Eden for 10 bucks that she'll cry. Imma win myself ten bucks today. hoorah. I can't believe its the end. June 11, 3:14 (OMG ITS PI) PM, Pacific Standard Time, I can't believe a year has gone by so fast.

Okay, so i'm gonna do movie ratings now. SPOILER ALERT FOR UP. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Up was pretty freaking amazing. It had all good elements of a movie: Good Plot, Sweet Ending, Good Humor, Sappy Lines That Make You Tear Up, Sad Parts, And Evil Villan, AKA GPSEGHSLTMYTUSPEV. Confession: I cried in the very end when Old Guy was like "And I'm gonna award you with the most special badge ever, the Ellie Badge" and puts the grape soda pin on him. I teared up in the aging montage too. I am pathetic. I love Doug, he is so funny and i loved the part when he knocks on the door and was like "I was hiding under your porch because I love you" I was like AWWWWW. The whole theatre was like Aw. In a rating of 1-10 1 being crap 10 being amazing i give it an 11.

Ranting For Today
OMG I FREAKING HATE HATE HATE LITTLE CHILDREN WHO TALK BEHIND YOU AND THEN THEIR PARENTS DON'T MAKE AN EFFORT TO SHUT THEM UP. There was a little Mexican girl in back of me with the most annyoing high pitched voice on the fracking earth and she was like narrating th e whole thing. UGH I WANTED TO TURN AROUND AND SAY SHUT THE #$%@ UP OKAY!?!!! I think I actually whispered that under my breath about the 3436195732048 time she squeaked something. I had to turn around and glare (which couldn't be seen due to the 3D glasses) like a million times. I wanted to strangle her. And in this like super sad part that was all quiet there were all these little kids talking their fracking heads off. ugh.

So right now, the Tonys are on and they are having this part remembering important peope of Brodway who have died. Mom from parent trap (Natashia Richardson) was on in it and i was like AW YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE DIED.
