We're moving to a one bedroom apartment. Me, my parents, and our two cats. One bedroom.
Because it's cheaper, and times are bad, and even though we're meeting each month's expense with no problem, my parents would like to save more. But thats not the big reason.
When all of this was explained to me, the reason that was given for doing this? I've decided I want to go away for college when I graduate.
I'm in the middle of my Junior year of high school now.
BUT FIRST! My tomato plant. Because its been almost a month and it's still alive and I love it so. I think I might actually get cherry tomatoes from this, too, as long as I don't forget to water it *cough*

( Room! I hope my camera skills didn't fail too badly )
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on ...

I actually got to meet as well as see several actors (Colin Baker among them), and what surprises me is how nice they all were. It's as if they are geniunly happy to have fans come up and talk to them. I even managed to get a few autographs! MJ was nice enough to let me hang out with her and her group during the whole thing, which I think made things infinetly more fun. Had I been alone, I would have probably spent most of the time panicking. We even went up to her hotel room and played both D&D and Beatmania, which I think oves me up a few steps as a geek~
I was feeling sort of icky when I went to bed last night, and woke up completely sick. At least there's no school for the week?
Classes were pretty relax; watched a video in English, had a test in Math though, which I think I did well on, and had a party for science. Best of all though, we had a Jazz band come in and play for us during Band class. They had a base player, and he actually let me pluck the base! I was so ridiculously excited; I'd forgotten how much I missed playing cello. Tom, the base player, showed me how the fingerings are different between cello and base, and when I was standing there plucking he told me I had good form hand-wise.
I hated that I ended up having to run off to class to avoid being late, but talking with him and the drummer (Willy I think? He's an old friends of Mr. E, our band director, from his drum quad days) was really worth it. Might even be considering Jazz camp for the summer.
I am horrible at those, unfortunately. But! I do figure that if I split my work evenly over the day/weekend, I will probably get more done than if I just lazy around today and overwork myself(or not, unfortunately) come sunday. This means I have to actually start said things, which would be made much easier if it was done Friday. But Friday was game night, and I did not feel like arriving from freezing on a bench outside to take notes on on of the most corrupt political periods in US History.
On a non-school-related note, I finished Life on Mars yesterday! It was...well I cried at the 'ending'. But definitely a series worth watching if you get the chance.
More than anything, this is a post to say I am still around! I've been really busy with school and such later, which is why I haven't updated in......forever. Hoping things will get less hectic soon though, so I can go back to properly keeping up with things.
Also, to make this an actually worthwhile read, Random Fact time~
King Richard the Lionhearted(the one who's evil brother John takes over the throne while he's away in every Robin Hood thing ever) was French, never actually set foot inside England because he was off fighting the Crusades, and also happened to be gay. Now I just want to figure out if he was the I, II, III, etc.
It's not that I've forgotten about it, I am keeping up with my f!list and reading everything, but I never really get the urge to post about things.
School does start tomorrow, and I'm nervous as hell because at this point I literally know no one there, move and all. I'm not even sure about dress code or the like, so I'm just sticking to a white shirt and jeans; the standard. I'll also be taking my sweater, just in case.
I'm not familiar with the style of classes, the weather, the people, anything. And it's freaking me out; I just want to get the first day over with so I can move on from there.

I finally bought my Skullcandy headphones; I couldn't find them in green, but I did find them in black and have decided they look awesome~ I've also been listening to Cold Play's Viva la Vida on repeat lately, which is sorta weird because normally I'm not a huge fan of the band, but I really like their song.
I've been playing around with the video camera too! It's not that hard to get used to, and actually kinda fun, so I'm thinking of starting on the video tomorrow.
I'm making an effort to not be in the house as much and be a little healthier, so I'm trying to go to the gym and just walk on the treadmill for twenty minutes a day. I don't always make it, but I've been keeping it up. Eating healthier, however, is a whole other issue because I have such a sweet tooth. Doesn't help that there's a chocolate cake in the house right now.
In other more random news, I bought new shoes~ ♥ They're converse, and they're two-layered, one layer brown with white laces, the other green with matching laces. They're the most colorful pair of shoes I've owned in a while, and I like them enough to just want to go out and wear them. I'm also planning on getting green skullcandy headphones soon, and not just cus they'd match the shoes.
Oh, and Brittany; dunno if Dale told you, but I'm sort of not sure where my phone is right now, which is why I haven't answered calls. Promise to call you as soon as I find it~
California is...nice, actually. It's a lot colder than Florida, but in a good way. It's sorta weird though, looking out the window and seeing mountains and not a single cloud i the sky; makes for a very pretty scene, but takes a bit getting used to. It's boring at the apartment though, now a bit less that I've got my comp back; there's very little to do besides sit around or go out on errands; the downfall of not actually knowing anyone on this side of the country. Upside though, is that I've picked up this series called 'Brothers & Sisters', and I've been renting the DVDs and watching it with my mom.; gives me something to do, plus nice family bonding time.
And because you I am obliged to mentioned this; I watched the season finale of Doctor Who today, and loved it like the good little fan I am X3 I guess once I sit down and rewatch it without all the emotional attachment, I'll find plot holes and all that. But for now? I'm happy and giddy and giggling every so often, and I like things that way~
I can sum up my packing experience in one word; annoying. Waaay to many things to pack and organize, not enough patience on my part. You'd think I remember this when I'm buying new things, but it never occurs to me. On a happier note; I watched the new Doctor Who episode today. Sucks that I'm going probably have to wait a bit to see the finale, but just more to look forward to~ On that note...
*cough* That is all.
