+Harry Potter+

So I just started reading the Harry Potter books in like the end of November. I am now reading the last and sadly the final book, The Deathly Hollows. Well today some girl who has already read the book starts babbling off the names of all the characters who die which really ticked me off! Thank god I wasn't really listening to her or else I would have probably murdered her! I read another chapter a few minutes ago and cried when one of the characters died though Im not going to tell u who in case you are one of the people who haven't read the series yet! The books may be long but they are really good and I do hope that someday you'll read them if you haven't already.

I can now understand why J.K. Rowling is the second richest woman in England. Her books are fantastic and she's an amazing author!
In case you are wondering, here's the list of the books I liked in order:

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone- Sixth favorite. Sure, it introduced me into the Harry Potter world but honestly I thought some of the later books were better.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets- Fifth favorite
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban- First favorite! It actually introduces one of my favorite characters in the series.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- Seventh Favorite.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix- Second Favorite. A lot of people say this one makes Harry seem emo which is kind of true considering a lot of kids have never been through the 'dark teenage years' but if you ignore Harry's constant emo-ness the story by itself is great and this is where a certain crazy death eater comes into place.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince- Third favorite. Everything about this kept you on the edge of your chair while reading!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Fourth Favorite but sadly the last book. =( I don't see Rowling making any new additions to the series, but we'll see.

I'm not sure who my favorite character is because I truly like most of them. Bellatrix is awesome, but I think I only like her because Helena Bonham Carter plays her in the movies. Hermione is the type of person I'd want to be. Luna is awesome and pretty quirky as well. Lupin is probably my favorite teacher, but I also really like Snape. Dumbledore is amazing and wise and whenever he appears you just know everything is going to be okay. Umbridge is horrible. Lucius is terrible. Draco's a snotty little brat. Voldemort's pretty sucky as well. That's all I have to say about this for now.

Have a nice day!!!

School RANT!!!!!!!!!!!

Well this week was fun (major sarcasm). Lets see on Thursday I had this weird British sub teacher who was all like "Hurry children we musn't be late to my class! Tallyho!" And I'm pretty much getting ignored by all my teachers for reasons unknown! Here's how basically all of my classes went;
Me: Mr./Mrs. _______ I have a question
Teacher: *Just whistles and walks away.*

Then this Friday I was actually having a good day until POLITICS CLASS! Yeah so my teacher is all like READ ALOUD THE LAWS YOU WANT CHANGED AND WE WILL BE SENDING THEM TO THE SENATE .... or something like that. Yes, because the senate is going to have time to read through a bunch of laws a bunch of high schoolers in nowhereville Michigan want changed. It's not like they have anything better to do!

So I read my aloud and the two laws that I wanted to change which were the legalization of marijuana usage in hospitals and the right to bear arms. So after I read them some jerk in my class starts freaking out over how EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO USE AND GUN DURING HUNTING SEASON and some other stupidity and my teacher is all like ITS NOT YOUR LAW! (technically it's not MY law either, I'm just writing down these things for a grade.) so then this kid goes on a rampage about how he didnt say anything (which is true, he pretty much SCREAMED IT) and blah blah blah and to "just ignore it." So Im just like "No I would really like to hear your opinion on these issues so I can get another viewpoint." and he didnt  have anything to say after that so obviously hes an idiot.

But anyways after that we're typing our laws up on the computers in the library and I raise my hand to ask something;
Mr.__________ I have a question!
Me: Oh. okay....

5 minutes later he never comes back and helps me despite the fact that my hand was in the air. Whatever. I figured it out. Yeah too bad my school doesnt have atleast one teacher to help me when I need it but are always there when I understand everything! But I'm getting all A's so its good.

Im also in choir and we had a concert this Friday where we sang to the elementary students songs that were completely mellow and not jazzy. The most fun songs we had were ABBA and those really werent that fun and I doubt these kids have ever even heard of Abba let alone a Fernando before. But the day before the concert my teacher finds it to be a WISE idea to switch places with this one girl in the middle row (and Im in the front center because I'm only 4'11) and she never even gave me a reason as to why! Apparently she couldnt hear the girl who I switched places with so she switched us. I wouldnt really have minded so much if the girl wasnt like 5'7 and if I wasnt put next to the two worst singers in class who throw off my pitch but the concert I guess went alright. Maybe she just switched me because I was the only one she could hear in the front row which is doubtful.  I really don't know but there must be a reason for her doing that. Anyways I'm off to go get my dog from outside! See ya!

So it has been raining since Friday. The town I live in is completely drenched with water and I don't live anywhere near an ocean or have any boat so this is actually very horrible considering today is SUNDAY!  I have soccer practice today at  6 until 7 and my dad just calls 10 minutes ago and goes HA HA I'LL SEE YOU IN A BIT AT PRACTICE! Man this did not make my mom happy at all! She used some very choice words about how stupid it was to have practice today and I cant say I blame her, although I do love my soccer people! Well I got to go considering I'm about ready to get pneumonia! Give me happy thoughts while I'm out there drenched and you are in your warm houses laughing at the idiots out in the down pore!
