i was told that kite flying's for lovers

it's that time again.

I know that I've posted this photograph a few entries ago, but I needed to post it again, because my hair is like this today! My camera is dead, and I need to go buy new batteries. One day, try to do this to your hair!

I'm reading Anne of Green Gables again, and I've realized, again, how much I love it. I relate to Anne so much, and it's such a lovely read.

At least once a week, I take a walk with Beverley (, and today our walk lasted almost 2 hours. We were at a park at one point, and a little boy, about 5 years old, was trying to talk to us. He had run across the street(without looking both ways before crossing) wearing a orange and navy blue winter jacket, and was trying to get into the park to talk to us. He was holding toys, and books, and he was saying things, but it was difficult to hear him since we were ways away. He tried to get past the chain surrounding the park, but he was too short to step over, and too weak to pick it up and go underneath. We were giggling about his cute factor, when a woman came out of the house and ran across the street to the boy. I'm assuming she was his mother. She picked him up and began to scold him, and I felt so sad, I just wanted to hug that kid forever. She brought him back home and I looked at the door a minute later, and the little boy was looking out the window sadly.

In my Drama class, we are currently doing monologues. My monologue is about a girl named Karen who has an eating disorder. I have to have it memorized and perform it by Friday, and I'm not sure if I'll be ready in time. Any tips for memorizing?

Remember how I told you about that solo in Vocal Jazz? Well I got one of them! I'm glad. Emma, ( has a solo in that song that has more or less the same tune, and I'm glad that she got one too. Thank you everyone, for your support!

I am currently listening to That's How You Know from the movie Enchanted. It is so delightful, if you haven't seen it, you probably should! Take my advice and see it, and love it. Tomorrow is my dance recital, and I'm going to get to do my hair up in a fun way! This post has a bunch of pictures, mostly of 'hairspiration'. I got the photos from various sources. I'm off now, to eat some torte and watch Annie! Have a great end of the month!

there's nothing we can do, just wanna be with you

I went on a nice walk today with Beverley(a-bev-blog.blogspot). We walked a fair amount, and we stopped in Walmart! There was so much Hannah Montana merchandise, it was insane! I bought a Hannah Montana guitar shaped hairbrush. I couldn't help myself! I also bought a copy of NYLON magazine, the special anniversary issue! I haven't finished it yet, but I'm hoping to read it tonight after dinner.

Stefanie(accordingtostefanie.blogspot) and I had a photo shoot, and most of the photos in this blog post are from the photo shoot that we had. We both had a lot of fun taking pictures with each other. I felt like a princess standing on top of a giant cookie!

I was reading old journals from the second grade last night. My mother teaches grade two, and she said that my writing was very developed for a child of that age. Remind me in the comments to post some small snippets of what I wrote, because some of it was very funny! I might use the new scanner I got to scan a few of the pages. It is so interesting to read old things that you wrote, and felt. I mentioned food so much in my journal. I haven't changed one bit.

Did anyone see the Hannah Montana movie? If you have, tell me in the comments what you thought..but don't give any of the plot points away! I want to know if it is worth seeing(even though I'll end up seeing it anyways). Or, just leave some movies you think I should see! I love watching movies.

I am in a vocal jazz group at my school, and we are singing the song Everybody Wants Ya by S Club 7. I used to listen to them when I was younger, and I'm ever so happy that we are singing that song in vocal jazz. I want a solo, wish me luck! Even if I don't get one, I'll have tons of fun singing it. You should check it out if you haven't listened to it before.

Someone called me beautiful today. I think that was the first time I've ever blushed in my life. I never turn pink. Ever.

I made a tumblr account, and it is a picture playlist site. I don't know how much I will update it, but I like it! (seeyourvoice.tumblr)
My friends and I wrote a parody of a song and we were going to record it and give it to a certain fabulous Improv team that is going to be going to the CIG(Canadian Improv Games). Unfortunately, the microphone wasn't working with my computer, so we didn't end up doing it. I hope I can find another microphone in the near future.
My friend Tatiana(discoveryourstory.blogspot) went on a trip to Mexico, and she brought me back the most darling bobble head turtles ever. One is named Travis, and the other is named Sienna.

I want this.
Have a good weekend, everybody, and thank you for reading my blog!
P.S. If anyone can guess where my title is from, they get an imaginary cupcake!
