Lots of Updates!!

Hi Guys!!! sorry it's been so long. I forgot to post after the talent show and I've been really busy with school. seeing as there's only about a month left, we are all working really hard to get it all done. Anyhow, backing up to the Talent Show, I didn't win (a girl i didn't know did, she's a dancer) but i got an extra oncore of my song, to honor my mom. it was really nice. and if you were wondering about Mia, she's fine now. now FYISA is going to host a Spring Fling dance on May 13th. it seems like the Winter Formal was last week and now it's time for a Spring Fling. for a school that was hesitant to merge genders, they sure are hosting dances. (although, of course they wouldn't dare do a prom for the older grades ;)

Explanation

the thing that i cut off at the end of my last post was that i realized that the actual date my mom died was April 8th. Which is the date of the talent show this year. that's really hard for me to think about. That's why, I think I am going to preform Taylor Swift's The Best Day for the talent show in honor of my mom. sorry if i dissapointed you guys, but that is what i am going to do. the winner of the poll was Firework by the way

Random Post

Wow, It's been awhile! this is kinda an update post, and kinda just a post of randomness. like this random fact: I FOUND MY GLASSES! I know you guys never knew they were lost (or even that I had them) but they've been missing since early-mid september, and I was getting mighty tired of needing to use my contacts without a choice.
in other news, we are no longer competing for chior, when we lost badly last time, we were disqualified from the next compititions. the school is having a talent show on April 8th and Mrs. Yati wants us all to partcipate in a solo, duet or trio, plus we are doing a group number. I am going to do a solo but I can't decide what song to sing. I am torn between Firework by Katy Perry, Live Like there's no Tomorrow by Selena Gomez or What Love Really Means, by JJ Heller (click here to listen to a sample) I am going to put up a poll, so please vote. this reminds me of the last talent show I sang in. It was about the same time as this one, and I sang a brand new song I had written about my mom dying two weeks earlier. which, now that I think about it...Nevermind, it's too sad to think of now.

Moving In

ok, well if you didn't read Mia's blog post about us boarding at FYISA, let me recap. our mom called Meline a couple weeks ago and told her that she wanted us all to start boarding at my school, Follow Your Inner Star Academy. all of us, Josefina, Amanda, Felicity and Lanie along with me and Mia. let's just say the weren't very happy about it. anyway, they agreed to go only if they were all together in a room, so the four of them got a 4 person room. Mia put in a room request and I remembered that Meghan had an extra bed in her room after her roommate switched schools over Christmas break, and decided to room with her.well, we moved in Sunday, and it isn't all that bad. i also realized i forgot to tell you about our choir competition Sunday.well, we didnt' do so good. Kade had a sore throat and couldn't come,so I had to do our duet with a boy named Jackson. unfortunatly, he didn't know song well enough, and combined with some other things, we placed 8th of 10. it obvously wasn't so good. we arn't sure when our next one is yet, but when we do, I will be sure to tell you

Winter Formal!!!

Hey guys! I just got back from the Formal and it was great! They decorated the gym to look like a real winter wonderland, with white fluff on the edges of the dance floor, and paper snowflakes hanging from the celling. it was really nice getting to know Anthony. he's a really nice guy, a little nerdy, but he has a sweet heart. he got me a corsage and everything! it was so sweet. and, Arron and Jake confessed that they have had crushes on Meghan and Tabitha since November. we all had a ton of fun dancing, and when they played Don't Stop Belivein' the whole choir went to the front and started singing! it was tons of fun! I won't tell you about Mia, she is going to update her blog when I'm done

Dress Shopping

we had a snow day today so Meghan, Tabitha and I went dress shopping! we origonally were just going to use dresses we had, but then we all got dates, so we decided to get new dresses. we tried to get Mia to come, but she wouldn't. I hope she decides just to suck it up and go, date or no date. but Iam not going to put it past her.... she claims there is somone she wants to go with, but he hasn't asked yet. I told her she should just ask him, but she dosen't like that idea much. but it's getting down to the line, the dance is tomorrow night. anyway, we went to the mall dress shopping and had so much fun! we spent ages in every store, pouring over every dress and trying on the ones we liked, and the ones we thought were funny or hidous, just for the fun of it. it ended up being really hard to choose, but Tabitha got a pink short sleeved  knee lingth dress, Meghan got a royal blue mid shin lingth dress with sheer long sleves. i finally settled on a floor linght purple dress with spagetti straps and a layered V neck. it looks soo pretty!

oh. my. gosh.

I got asked to the Winter Formal!! so did Meghan and Tabitha!! i got asked by a boy named Anthony. he is in my Science and English classes. he is quieter, but seems really nice. Meghan and Tabitha actually got asked out by Arron and Jake!! yep, when they said they had girls in mind, they actually said it to the girls they wanted to go with! now we all have dates. I'm going with Anthony, Meghan is going with Arron, Tabitha is going with Jake, and Kade is going with Alexis. the only person i am worred about is Mia. she said she would think about going stag with us, but since we are no longer going stag, unless she get's a date, she won't go. she says there is a person she wouldn't mind going with, but that he is also the type who would probably have a girlfriend. I told her that you never know, maybe that girlfriend he looks like he should have, is really her in a week! but she dosen't seem to belive me.........

Winter Formal

Hey guys! today was our first day back at school, and they announced that they have decided to hold a Winter Formal! in the announcements today, our Co-Principal took over for announcements and told us about it, but, of course, he did the whole "we wern't sure about encourging boy-girl relatons like this, but we decided that you would enjoy it." he needs to loosen up. but at lunch, of course we were talking about it. Kade is obvously going with Alexis, and Jake and Arron said that they have girls in mind they want to ask, so Tabitha, Meghan and I decided to go stag together. that is, if we don't get asked out by then. i am just planning on going alone. not that i wouldn't necessarly say no to anyone who asks, but i can't think of anyone who actually would want to go with me.

poor Lanie!

hey guys, Lanie has had a really bad day, and i feel really bad for her. Lanie just got news today that is is retired. she hadn't realized it and is now really upset. later this afternoon, she got a phone call, this is what i heard

"hello?"
"what?"
"but-"
...............
"I will have to think about it, thank you"

at this point, she was holding back tears that came spilling out as soon as she hung up.
"what's wrong?" all of us girls asked
sniffle "m-my family d-d-died"

"What happened?!"

"they were in a c-c-car crash"
sob

"Lanie! that's horrable!"
"oh, Lanie i am sooo sorry for you!"
"they said i have a choice, i can go and live with my aunt Hannah, or i can be adopted by you guys. I told them i have to think about it. they also said that my father didn't die on impact, he died this morning, and when he knew he was going to go, he wrote me a letter that should be here in a few days."

then she went up to her bed and sobbed. we let her go, she needed to be alone for a while.

like Lanie said, the letter will be here in a few days, and when she decides what she is doing, i will update you.
