Ok ok ok

One of these days I will get back to posting everyday, I just have to get there! I am going to a raider challenge this weekend and I think I am actually competing this time. one word...........YYYYAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!! Drill Team practices should start within the next two weeks.... AWESOME!!! I am planning on going out for Unarmed Reg, Armed Reg, Unarmed Exhibition, and maybe even Color Guard. It seems like it will be alot, but I am prepared. I also joined my schools FEA (Future Educators of America) I think I will be the photographer for it which will be cool. I also am applying for the S2/4 position or the assistant which ever the new instructor decides (if I get the position). On the 5th of November I get to be in a fashion show for a local clothing store which ought to be fun.
My brother and I have taken to doing the dance of the cards and dress, because the cards still have not arrived and the dress keeps going on backorder. The dance goes something like bow up bow down while jumping and saying ay ay ay ay ay oh ay ay oh!!!! lets hope it works.
Anyways, I think thats everything so... Bye.

Only took how long to figure out where they hide the Show Title button..
Well the Cadet Challenge was this week and I did the mile in 8:30 .. shaved 45 seconds off last year, and well, ok, I could have done better. Brother got 7:20 something. Battalion Commander was at 8:01 and I was in top 5 in my class period. ( want to say I was 4th, but not certain )
Studying for the ACT's. Not as hard as people make em out to be. Well, ok, let's be honest, I haven't tried the math part yet. I'm gonna take them Dec 10th.
Knitting slow today. Play practice tonight ( School is doing a watered down, edited, shortened version of Midsummer Night's Dream ) I'm not in it. Drama doesnt interest me, but I like to go watch the boyfriend, he is Oberon. Hopefully finish a pair of black dress socks tonight.
Need to add the panda to my photo album.
Well, off to watch my school .... errr... um.... butcher Shakespeare.
Peace , Love and Rib Eye Steak

Bad Blogger !Sheesh, ok, so, I could say it isn't my fault, but it is.Things have been crazy. I am prepping for the ACT's with S3, I had my birthday party ( It was awesome ! ) I did 3 parades and a Football game the same weekend as my party, and we got our new AI. We chained him to the desk his first day at the last period so he couldn't leave. Captain gave him a pillow and blanket, Mom gave him a Teenager survival kit that had pain reliever, tums, grecian formula, a coloring book, and relax cd's and a bottle of relax bubble bath.
I am knitting a panda bear sleeper for a friend's new baby. Almost done, seems not going as fast as usual, but that's probably lack of time. I wanna buy a bag of the Creme Brulee on sale in the back cover of one of the catalogues I get, but OOPS, can't remember which one it is. Want to say it's knitpicks.
Boyfriend grounded for not cleaning room, big "brother" ( best friend ) broke up with girlfriend.
Gonna send my SP her first prezzie next week, was gonna do it this last week but I barely had time to eat. ( sleep?? What's sleep? ), So it's decided.
Raider's is going ok, Drill team ( YESSS ) should be starting soon, and I quit flags for marching band. ( just wasn't fun anymore )
Think the brother's and I are gonna go visit our old AI at his new school Friday since we don't have school. ( We get a lot of "Inservice" Days and "Early out" Days.
Well more tomorrow.
