Nothing was wonderful today.
Today just feels flat and gray.
Must be the weather.

expressing myself
through dance and art
in what I say and what I sing
how I hold myself
in what results when my pen touches paper
and when words flow from my mouth
how I dress myself in the morning
and how many holes I put in my face
how I use the space I fill
I will make known what goes on inside my head,
by expressing myself.



Hmmhmmhahahmm. Procrastination takes many a form. Mine comes in the shape of 2 pointy blades with handles for the forefinger and thumb. I don't think I know anyone who cuts their hair just for fun.
I can't believe how late it is already. I'm back from Valdez, it was...wow. The mountains there are just SO AMAZING. I never get over it. A little snowboarding just for fun, a lot of yummy food, and trying to maybe learn a word or two in Portugese from Andressa, a student from Brazil.
Today I made good progress on the montagnes des maths, and now I'll do a little reading for English,
which is nice, have-a-cookie-and-let-me-rub-your-feet homework that I don't mind doing. The subject of the book isn't so cheery, an eye-opening exposé of the toils of a slave girl with a perverted master and dreary conditions for her family. Riles anger from the acid of the deep stomach-area. Am in a good mood despite looming prospect of school in a few hours.
Love love.

All That Jazz

So I just watched Chicago, and I'm all caught up in the glitzy 1920's. The music and singing...I'm usually not much for musicals but after watching this, I really want to get all sparkled up and sing my heart out on a stage. Hee.
Recent events: Staying at Ava's G-parents, learning to crochet (slowly, frustratingly), tons of homework etc, and wriggling with excitement for Thanksgiving-Valdez trip next week. I took some inspirationg pictures out of books I got from the library...

at last

Oh, what a wonderful day it is today. Snow is covering the ground, its quiet and bright white and thick. Hm, well, here's some pictures.

This is the week to stay at Ava's grandparent's with her, beginning Wednesday. I'm so very excited. I wish school was not a part of it though. I wouldn't mind spending all day playing music and sewing/learning to crochet hats and drawing/painting and playing in the snow. Lately I've been spending a lot of time at the library, watching movies, reading Sherlock Holmes, painting, and drinking lots of tea and eating lots of toast.
