Okay, I promised to post today and i will. I'm not sure what to post about, though. I already know what i want for christmas, and i know i'll get it. What will you get (or want to get) this year, and what holidays do you celebrate?
Today (or was it yesterday?) was Christmas Eve Eve. It's near Midnight (or past it) And I just pushed myself to the beyond to complete 200 squats! I honestly can't believe i did it, and i keep thinking it was a mistake. I will blog more tomorrow (hopefully)!

These are just some things I'm hoping to get for Christmas: an iPad, an iPod touch, miscellaneous nerdy tech junk, NO CLOTHES, iTunes gift cards, a Bamboo pad for my computer, a trip to far away, etc. Mostly just computer-type stuff. I know I probably won't get any of these things, but if I'm desperate I'll by myself a little gift. What about you guys? What are your lists and will you get me some gifts? Please?

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! I hope everyone is having a great thanksgiving, even though I don't believe in this holiday. I think it's just another excuse for Americans to eat all day and get a break off of work. What are your opinions?

I had the weirdest dream. I was in an apartment, and a woman there turned on a vacuum. I tried to turn it off, but I couldn't find the button. I unplugged it from the wall, but it didn't stop. Then I woke up. I was in a hotel room. I told a girl in the hotel who I seemed to know. She said there was no vacuum, but I could still hear it softly. Then I really woke up. I was in my room, where I had fallen asleep last night. I don't know who the girl in my dream was. Creepy, right? I had a dream within a dream! Does anyone know what a dream within a dream about vacuum cleaners means? Help!

I saw a Brandi Carlile concert recently and she signed my CD case and it was awesome! You should definitely check out her songs! She is an amazing singer with a great voice, despite her youth. One of my favorite songs by her is Before it Breaks. She is great!

Nothing. This post is about absolutely nothing. Actually, I do have one thing to blog about. My hair. I know it seems vain, but I'm really happy because I now have bangs and a flat iron. Now I will keep my usually crazy-curly hair straight! And my bangs are awesome, too!

For some strange reason, I like nightmares. They get my blood pumping and my heart racing. I like the scary ones, but I don't like nightmares where I try to scream but I can't. I hate not being able to do something, to fight back. I hope that never happens to me in real life.
I like dreams, too. Specially the ones where I can do crazy magical things. I know it sounds juvenile,but I wish I could fly. It would be completely awesome if I could. But, for now, I'll have to be contempt with dreaming.

I just had an Opus recording. Opus is a singing program for talented singers. You get in by invitation, then you record yourself singing and send it to a judge to see if you got in. I love singing, but this was a nerve wrecking experience. I finally did it, though, and I'm very relieved to get it over with. Now I'll be nervous until I get the results to see if I'm in or not. I think the waiting time is the worst part. It's even worse than not getting in. Wish me luck!

These are some TV shows I love: House, Bones, Leverage, Burn Notice, Glee, and occasionally Law and Order, but I don't watch it anymore. Music or musicians I like: Lady Gaga, The Killers, Avril Lavigne, Kesha, Peter Paul and Mary, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Kaiser Cheifs, and several others.
I'm watching Ocean's 11th at 1:18 in the morning. I've got nothing better to do, but this isn't sso bad because I love George Clooney and Brad Pitt. I also love how Saul calls Danny by his full name, Daniel. I will now go back to watching the movie and trying to get over my cold. It's not too bad, though.

This post will cover a lot! 1) I haven't been posting because I have been computer deprived for so long! But finally 2) I got a new computer! It's absolutely awesome!!!! I love it more than anything. The first thing I did on it? Post this post. :) 3) School has started again. I really wish it hadn't, because I want to be in Brazil. I got back fine, though, thanks for asking. 4) I've entered a photo contest, so I need a lot of photo ideas. A lot. If you got suggestions, please tell me! And that's that.

My computer broke down. It wont start. :( That's why I haven't been typing lately. But I will, I promise. Now, onto more pressing matters. During the time I was off the web, I went to Bahia! More specificaly, to an amazing hotel resort on the beach! But sadly. it rained all the time. I still swam, though. And tomorrow is my Birthday! I'm not so excited, though. To me, it's not a big thing. I really want presents, though!

Today, I have decided to go out to do some shopping. I want to buy some good quality charcoal pencils, and a sketch pad. I need a pad with good paper, though. My sketch pad only has regular paper. I prefer thicker paper. I have decided to start drawing and painting more. There is so much beauty to capture here in Brazil. Soon, I will be hitting the beach, and I want to paint a watercolor portrait of the waves. Wish me luck!

The song, Whiskey Lullaby, is a super sad song! I get teary just listening to it. It's about a couple who were broken up, and they became so depressed they killed themselves by drinking. I hope that never happens to me! If you have heard this song, tell me what you think of it.

I finally have internet! You may applaud. I am now in Campinas, SP. I was in Jaboticabal, SP, just yesterday. If anyone wants to track my progress, they may. I will do that myself. I want to blog much more these days.I have already spent fourteen days in Brazil! I love it here. What are you doing during this vacation?
I love them both! Tagxedo is just like Wordle, but with more features. But I think Wordle is easier to use. If you don't know what either of them are, visit these websites: www.wordle.net and www.tagxedo.com/app.html They are awesome! I made a Tagxedo. You can see it, but only if you click here =>linky link!<=!

I haven't been blogging, but sadly it's not because I'm having lots of fun. I am having fun, but I'm not blogging because I haven't had internet for a couple days. But, besides that, everything is great! I've already visited a school here. It's very different from school back home. I'm still not homesick, though. I'm holding on. I hope to have a lot more fun while I'm here!
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
I will now be writing about my trip to Brazil. I go every summer, to visit my relatives and enjoy the beach. I will be staying for almost two months, and hope to blog at least once a week. I won't have a lot of time, though. If I don't blog a lot, it means I am having too much fun. I hope there are people reading my blog. If you are reading me, send me a message, or maybe just a sign. Please?

I think some school projects are just plain cockeyed. Why is it that all kids seem to have a level of maturity that no teacher can ever reach in class? And I know no one in my class thinks the project we're doing is mature. Gosh!

I just listened to Concrete Angel. It makes me cry every time I see the video. It's so sad. I can't believe kids get so abused, but sometimes they do. It is so sad. I think Someday I'll do something to stop this. I hate to sound like spam mail, but if you are reading this you must donate at least one dollar to a child neglect/abuse center near you. NOW!

I have been doing SO much homework these days. This is my make up post/punishment for not posting recently. So the rest of the post will be in Spanish. ¡Lo siento tan para no escribir recientemente! ¡Doblo promesa de escribir más pronto! ¿Usted me perdonará? ¿Por favor? ¡Gracias tanto si usted dijo sí!

Now it's (check's clock) almost 5:30PM. Now, I'm absolutely exhausted. And this is right after I took a long nap. Maybe there's more to this story than I thought. Either way, that was the worst nap in my entire life!
My conclusion to this experiment was: it was AWESOME!!!!!! I can't believe I stayed up for 24 hours. Now that I know the effects (i.e. slight drowsiness, sore eyes) I know what to expect from myself. Thus, I can stay up longer next time. Can't wait. But right now, I need a good long sleep. Keep following, but from a distance. Good Night!
I did it! I survived without sleep for 24 hours! Finally! Here are some interesting facts about sleeping: The record for the longest period without sleep is 18 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes during a rocking chair marathon. The record holder reported hallucinations, paranoia, blurred vision, slurred speech and memory and concentration lapses. In insomnia following bereavement, sleeping pills can disrupt grieving. Some studies suggest women need up to an hour's extra sleep a night compared to men, and not getting it may be one reason women are much more susceptible to depression than men. Feeling tired can feel normal after a short time. Those deliberately deprived of sleep for research initially noticed greatly the effects on their alertness, mood and physical performance, but the awareness dropped off after the first few days. Info from http://www.abc.net.au/science/sleep/facts.htm I did it! I'm so happy!
Actually, this was quite fun. I spent most of my time on YouTube, watching Who's Line is it Anyway?: Props. I'm still not tired. Maybe I'm tired and I just don't know it. 4 hours till noon. I think I can make it! I know I can make it!
I ended up not making a sandwich, but just having jello and yogurt. Ah well. So far, I feel completely normal. This might just be because I naturally don't need a lot of sleep. Or food. I don't know. It is a fun experiment, though. Sadly, the world will soon wake up. I liked being awake when no one else was. I hope to do this some other time, maybe for two days (48 hours) not just one (24 hours). That would be fun. I still have 6 hours to go, though. But, I might stop blogging, because I'll be around other people. I'll try my hardest. Keep tuning in for more!
I'm not really sure what to write. The pain in my eyes has gone away. Besides being slightly hungry, I feel normal. Nothing much happened in this past hour. Well, actually, something really embarrassing happened, but I don't think I'll blog about that. Maybe some other day. Ah well. I'm going to make myself a sandwich. See ya...
Something HUGE happened. Something that will blow your mind. I saw a spider. OK, it's not as big as you think, but I have arachnophobia, so it was big to me. Let's start at the beginning. I was lying in bed, on YouTube, when I felt a tingling sensation on my arm. I looked over, and I saw a HUGE spider (it was pretty little, actually) crawling on my skin. I freaked out, and had just enough sense to close my computer before I ran out of my room. After I calmed down I went on a mission to recover my computer, headphones, and charger cable. To make a long story short, it worked successfully. I then crept downstairs and am now sitting on top of the kitchen table. On top of it, not just at it. Needles to say, I freaked out. I'm going to make some tea. It has caffeine, to help me stay up, and it's not as acidic as coffee, so my acid reflux won't act up. Not it mention it slowly releases it's caffeine, so I don't just get a burst then a crash, but a slow awake-ness. Keep following closely, but not too closely!
It's 3AM, and besides slightly droopy eyes, i'm doing pretty good. I am enjoying YouTube, and all it's video's, and lovin' this experiment. I think I'll call it The Insomniac Experiment from now on. Wish me luck!
This is my second check in with my blogging peeps. It's almost 2AM, and I feel great. I just hope my pesky acid reflux doesn't act up tonight, because I'm not leaving my bed for pills until I see the sun. Like Kesha once said, or sung, tonight imma fight till we (I) see the sunrise (Tik Tok). So far so good, but lets see how things progress...
This is my second attempt at staying up all night. I will keep you posted every hour, hopefully. If I make this, I will be so tired. Only 11 more hours to go till noon. Since I woke up at noon yesterday, I can sleep at noon today. I wonder what my mom will think. Ah well...

I think fashion is sort of important. Not following all the trends, but at least having all your clothes match and look good. And I believe that fashion helps with self-esteem, and having lots of friends. I also believe in successories, which are clothes and accessories that make people like and/or respect you more. Going to a job interview looking like a drunk alcoholic will probably ensure rejection, while looking like a clothes model really helps you to get the job. Just don't put too much effort in to it. If you look over-dressed, you'll seem like a freak. And don't spend to much money on clothes. Have enough to look good, but not so much that you have an outfit for every day in the year.
The math I'm doing now is sooooo easy! I could do it with my eyes closed (actually, that would be pretty hard, considering I wouldn't be able to see the numbers). Instead, I'm doing it while listening to Paparazzi, by Lady Gaga. It's still easy. As you can see, I love the Lady. So cool...
I'm at Panera Bread right now. I'm eating a Frontega Chicken Panini, no tomato; chips, cooked in 100% sunflower oil; and soda, every type in the fountain. I love Panera. The soda tastes good, the panini is delicious, and the chips are heavenly. Is there any more a girl could need?
Tik Tok is such a good song. I absolutely love it! Not the lyrics specifically, but the lyrics and the tune. If you haven't heard it before, check it out at www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3Yp_gdAHHE. While you're at it, look up Kiss N Tell, by Kesha.

I just posted my first blog. This is my second. The incredible excitement is wearing off. It is almost midnight, anyway. I wonder if anyone has read this.Anyway, I'm just listening to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance, the French part. I absolutely love that part, even if I don't like the song as much. But I love Lady Gaga. I can't believe she's only like 27. She looks so old!
