Vactioning in the house

Most of you know that I'm not at all a traveling person.
But Friday, after we had our carpets cleaned, we packed and
drove 4 hours to my grandparents house. Friday night our whole
family slept out on the deck (on mattresses, of course) It was a pretty warm night
and we could see the stars and listen to the crickets churping and the watery music
of their little pond.
Saturday morning, I helped my grandma make a huge, scrumptious breakfast of buttermilk
pancakes, sausage, and eggs. I was still full when lunch came when we made home-made
macaroni and cheese.
The whole vacation is going fine except for one thing: I'm bored most of the time. There's no one
to talk to except for my siblings who are off playing dressup and make-believe or my parents who are napping on the couches or reading all day.
So I just go on you-tube and before you know it it's 11 o'clock at night!
Tonight after dinner my family and me are hittin the road and traveling back home, where we're going to un-pack, cool-off, get a snack here and there and get back in the car and head for lagoon.
I Love Lagoon! The last time I went was several years ago. I remember my favorite ride was
"The music express" which must have been a baby ride. But I can't remember. I'm going to try and go on all the scariest rides EXCEPT for 'Wicked'. I heard that there was a meaning in it's name.

"The Call" by Regina Spektor

Have you ever heard that song? If you've seen "Prince Caspian"

Then you would've heard the song at the very end called "The call"
by Regina Spektor. Well, I searched on you-tube and found it.
It has all the lyrics and everything if you want to sing along.
If you don't know what "The Call" was, remember when Peter,
Susan, Edmund and Lucy leave Narnia for the last time, and they look
out over all the Narnians waving goodbye, and then this sad music goes
on, and they appear back in the train station and that one wierdo says
"Aren't you coming, Phillys?" (Lol)
Well anyways I found it on youtube. If you want to listen to it,
Your fellow hobo,

Gummy Galore

So I guess I've always had a passion for gummy candies. But lately I've
been totally obsessed with gummy candies.
I wish that I could eat these every day!

I've read this book...

So I'm reading a really good book called 'Twilight' and it's by Stephenie Meyer.

It's about a 17 year old girl named Bella who falls in love with a vampire.
The movie is actually coming out this November. (It used to be in December,
but it was moved up 3 weeks)
So this vampire that Bella falls in love with is named Edward. As he is a vampire,
he never ages. He's been 17 for 90 years or so.
Here is a link to watch one of the 2 trailers made:

Read the story. Imagine the ending. Go to the 'comment' page.
Write me the end of the story.

Here it is.

No one goes down the far left hallway anymore. Not since that happened.Because people are scared of what is behind the silver door. The silver door is the only door down that whole hallway. When you lookat it, goosebumps automatically form on your arms without your noticing.A faint green light glows from the crack under the door. No one dares enter that room nomatter how heavy the circumstances.Because people are scared of what is behind the silver door.

My favorite things

My favorite quotes from Tuck Everlasting

"What we Tucks have you can't really call 'Livin'. We just.....are. Like
rocks stuck on the side of a stream. You don't need to live forever, Winnie.
You just need to live."

Tuck Everlasting

Ok. So I just watched the most AWESOME movie last night

called Tuck Everlasting.

It's about a family of 4 back in the 1800's. They have been

traveling all day so they stop by stream of water and drink

from it. Then they continue on their way, find a place to settle,

build a house, and start living their lives like they should. But

then wierd things start happening.

Jesse, the youngest, (17 years old) falls out of a huge tree and

breaks his neck. But then he stands up, really confused. Not dead.

Then the father gets bitten by a rattlesnake. He doesn't die.

Miles, the oldest, (25 years old) gets shot. He doesn't die.

They're all fine.

Soon they figure out that the water that they drank at the little

stream that very hot day made them immortal.

So they hide out in the woods for about 100 years, never aging.

Soon, 15 year old Winnie Foster stumbles upon Jesse in the magic

woods and requests a drink of water.

Miles and Jesse kidnap her to tell her the truth about the stream

and why drinking from it is a bad idea. That maybe being

immortal is more a curse than a blessing.

So Winnie and Jesse fall in love and yeah I just gave the whole

thing away, didn't I?

It's a 10,000,000,000,000% MUST SEE MOVIE!!!!

Something wierd that's happening to my chin:

Ok. This is going to sound gross. But as after lunch I went
to the bathroom to rinse off my hands, I noticed that the
skin on my chin was peeling off. I don't know why! So
I peeled off the rest of the skin the was hanging off and
headed to my next class. But right now I'm guess-timating
that it's probably from my head-gear that I put on every
I got my headgear last Monday. I have to wear it every day
for at least 11 hours.

I'm finally starting to get the hang of where all my classes
are. It's convenient where my locker is postioned.

A-day agenda!

6:30 am: Wake up, brush teeth, get dressed, have breakfast.

7:30 am: Leave to walk to the bus-stop

7:45: am: Bus leaves.

8:05 am: Head to my A1 class..... Creative Writing w/ Mr. Chappell.

10:35 am: Go to my A2 class.... Utah History w/ Mr. Tom

12:00 pm: Go to my A3 class.... CTE w/ Mr. Myers.

1:30 pm: 2nd lunch.

The rest of the day.... Orchestra w/ Mr. Beck!

You've probably noticed that all my teachers are men.

I'm an Orch Dork. It's OK to be jealous.

I'd have to say that my #1 favorite teacher in Jr High would be
my Orchestra teacher, Mr. Beck.
Let me describe him to you.
Very very very very tall. About 6 ft 9.
Dark hair, long neck, and EXTREMELY funny. I leave his
music room every A-day with tears of laughter still streaming
down my face. I don't think I would still take cello if I had
a strict teacher.

A little story I wrote:

It was 11:45pm on a cool September night.
Mary wanted to get her last hour of exercise in
before family vacation. She drove up the canyon
to a nice paved bike trail and started her jogging
right there.
She jogged once around the golf course than she
headed back to her car. As she came around the
corner and saw her car parked 100 yards away,
headlights swerved around the corner and headed
right towards her. She moved off to the side, but
it did no good. The drunk driver wheeled to the left
and hit her, not running her over, but trapping her
between the front of the car and a tree trunk.
She died that night.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Hello! And welcome to my very very very first blog. I'm so excited!
My name is Becca. Here is a little bit about me.
I've always loved working with words, such as writing novels, reading
books, doing wordsearches and crossword puzzles, unscrambeling
words, and that sort of thing. I love English classes and Creative Writing.
At the end of 6th grade I got a certificate for being the "Best Author"
in 6th grade. I know, I'm bragging a little. But I really did.
I will be happy to post some of my stories on here for those who really
like to read my stories.
