In case you're wondering, no. I didn't go anywhere exotic or adventurous for spring break. However, I did to Chicago! If you don't know me, I LOVE CHICAGO, and to top it off, it was practically summer down there! The journey home, however, is a completely different story.
We started from Chicago with sunny skies and a pleasant breeze in the air (this was around 1:30 pm). We had been driving for a while when a series of unfortunate events ocurred. At about 4:30 pm, we hit a traffic jam on a single lane road that went on for at least five miles. That was loads of fun! We probably started driving at a normal pace again at 5:30 pm. Shortly after, Mother Nature began to have other ideas.
The skies suddenly became overcast with dark clouds and it started to pour. If that wasn't enough, hail the size of what sounded like golf balls began to pound down on the car. Lovely. We could no longer see the road and pulled over under the nearest bridge. It finally cleared up after a while, but we were shaken up to say the least. We reached home much later than we had planned and I got to sleep in on monday morning :)
Speaking of crazy weather, when will it be summer already? I'm tired of this fluctuating weather!
Guess what? I found out my neighbor's dogs have rabies that is supposedly harmless to humans. Yippee!
Good News & Bad News:
Good: I got a 'SUPERIOR' on my solo for the solo/ensemble contest! You could say I'm pleased with myself, as it is the highest rating. I was slightly worried that I wouldn't do so well because the judge was known to be a tough one, but I'm definitely happy with the results.
Bad: I have an inflamed tendon in my left knee, causing me to have trouble walking without limping. Even worse, I have a dance performance tomorrow that I'll barely be able to make it through. Yay!
SHOCKING FACT: Iron Man 3 is being made by Disney and without the direction of the amazing Jon Favreau. Okay, so maybe it isn't that ground-breaking, but for an Iron Man fanatic like myself, this stuff matters. I don't know how I feel about it yet, but my expectations are definitely lower.
It's officially prom season!! My favorite things about it: the cute ways of asking and the dresses! Just the other day, in our school's parking lot, I saw the cutest idea ever. The boy (who shall remain nameless) had decorated the girl's car in colorful post-its, and the windshield had a huge 'PROM?' on it also made of post- its. The boy was pacing around, waiting for the girl, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Oh, I almost forgot; she said yes! :)
Lynxes are so cute!!! I definitely need a pet lynx.
Since we're talking about cats already, did anyone know that mountain lions, pumas, and cougars are the same thing?
Okay, so this week's playlist is slightly different. The songs don't go very well together, but are definitely worth listening to!
I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break!
