It’s Vacation!!

Hey. Well, my February vacation started a little while ago today, which means (probably) longer, more thorough posts, and I’m definitely going to do my best to get as much of Running written as possible. I actually don’t have a shit-load of homework to do over break, surprisingly. All I have is a Dos essay and to study a bunch for Spanish. Alright, sorry for the short post, but I have to go. I meant it to be longer, really I did, but I need to go now. Sorry! Bye!

Midterms Are Done!

Hey. So, I’m officially DONE with midterms! I finished my Spanish midterm about fifteen minutes ago, and I have to say, it was pretty easy (probably thanks to my index card that had literally every single vocab word and preterite ending on it πŸ™‚ ). But, thank you God! No more stress. Well, at least until I get them back and find out I failed one or two or five (yes, I’m already stressing). But, hey, I already found out that I got a FREAKING 95 ON MY GEOMETRY MIDTERM!!! Is that awesome or what?! Alright, I’m going to go try to type some more of Running. Sorry for the short post, but I haven’t typed anything this week because of midterms, and I really want to. Bye!

The Most Awesomest Song Ever

Hey. So I got home later then I thought I would, then forgot about this post for a little while, which is why this post is just getting up now. Anyway, I normally change my favorite song every couple weeks (just a fun fact- I don’t believe I’ve ever said that before). But my current favorite song has been consistent for a couple months now. I swear, I first heard it on Grey’s Anatomy, but I can’t seem to find any proof of that, so maybe I’m going even more crazier than I normally am. Anyways, wanna know what my favorite song is? It’s Gone Gone Gone, by Phillip Phillips. I can’t stop singing it, and it’s been stuck in my head for forever! Not that I’m complaining, because I love it, but it does make it hard to focus sometimes, though. Here’s a music video, with lyrics, plus lyrics at the bottom (I’m going all out πŸ™‚ ):

When life leaves you high and dry
I’ll be at your door tonight
If you need help, if you need help
I’ll shut down the city lights,
I’ll lie, cheat, I’ll beg and bribe
To make you well, to make you well

When enemies are at your door
I’ll carry you away from war
If you need help, if you need help
Your hope dangling by a string
I’ll share in your suffering
To make you well, to make you well

Give me reasons to believe
That you would do the same for me

And I would do it for you, for you
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.

When you fall like a statue
I’m gon’ be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Tell me what you need, what do you need

I surrender honestly
You’ve always done the same for me

So I would do it for you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone gone gone.

You’re my back bone,
You’re my cornerstone
You’re my crutch when my legs stop moving
You’re my head start,
You’re my rugged heart
You’re the pulse that I’ve always needed
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating

For you, for you
Baby I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
Baby I’m not moving on,
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long, long after you’re gone.

Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating for you

And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.
I love you long after you’re gone gone, gone.

Okay, I seriously got all of these lyrics right except for, like, literally two words. And by the way, the above lyrics aren’t mine. I copied and pasted them from here. But seriously, isn’t that song just AMAZING?! I LOVE it! It’s the most listened to on my iPod, I believe. Hang on, let me check…. Yep, it is πŸ™‚ Anyways, I have to go study for my final midterm- Spanish. Which I struggle with. A lot. So, if you excuse me, I’m off to go struggle some more. Bye!

You’ll Never Believe What Has Happened To Me The Last Few Days

Hey! So, guess what I found out on Friday? One of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Pereira (I think I’ve mentioned her before….), freakin’ DIED when she was 9!!! Okay, I know that sounds weird, so let me back up a bit. I was explaining to her how much I fucking HATED the ending of Allegiant by Veronica Roth (without the fucking, of course πŸ™‚ ) and she was like, ‘I hate it when books have bad endings, because it takes me so long to read them because I have basically no short term memory because I was hit by a truck when I was 9.’ I was like, ‘Woah, back up. You got hit by a truck?!’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, I actually died in the street, but they revived me. When I came out of my coma, I had to relearn almost everything, and I only knew my mom, not even my dad. I also had no short term memory, so that’s why I have to reread parts of books a lot to get the information to stick.’ This whole time I was slightly shaking as I thought how close I came to losing her before I even knew her. I was just thinking,Β What the hell! I was shocked, to say the least. I gave her a hug, and was like, ‘good thing you lived, since you’re so awesome.’ She was like, ‘aww, you’re awesome too!’ Isn’t that crazy?! Also, on a totally different note, I GOT A FREAKING 94 ON A SPANISH TEST!!!!! And I seriously SUCK at spanish! It was awesome, pure awesomeness!! Okay, I’m going to go write more of a new story I came up with. Maybe in an hour, you could check it out on Wattpad, if it’s there. It’s called Outcast. Okay, bye!!

P.S. Here’d the cover for Outcast:

Finals

Hey. So, I just took my Spanish final, the first of my finals. The thing that has me worried is that I’ve been out sick the last two days, so I missed A LOT of reviews. But I’m feeling pretty confident about this one. I knew almost all of it, I think. Anyways, when I was sick, my throat was killing me, and I had a headache and a fever of 100.3. It kind of sucked. Especially since I had to miss the last reviews for finals. And since I wasn’t doing that’s great in school before the finals or, as you know, on the midterms, I was scared about missing the reviews, but I couldn’t go in, obviously, cuz I was sick. Buy I’m going to get extra help from my teachers, so hopefully I’ll pass the finals. Bye!
