Sundaes on Tuesday

Three days ago, I had an orchestra concert. We played (in order)
• Prelude and Gavotte
• Pink Panther
• Dancing Basses
• The One Bow Concerto
• The Moldau
• America the Beautiful*
The first piece was Prelude and Gavotte. The prelude was a slow part while the gavotte was a fast and lively part. Pink Panther is just like it sounds. Dancing Basses features the basses. The One Bow Concerto has 3 soloists at a time. But the soloists must share one bow. The Moldau is probably the hardest piece (and the best). It is slow, then fast, then slow, then fast. America the beautiful was beautiful. But after that got done, we got to eat sundaes (whoo!!) with lots of toppings.

*America the Beautiful was played with the High School.

How I Appreciate my Mother

   Dear Mom,
 I think that moms are one of the greatest things that God gave us. These are the things that I really appreciate about you, mom. I think that you look pretty when you go on a date with dad and you are dressed up fancy. I think that you are nice when you get us something somewhere. I think that you’re awesome when you cook my favorite foods. I think that you are unique when you play Lord of the Rings on the Wii. I think that you are helpful when you got me some shoes yesterday. I truly love you with all my heart.

Tragedies vs. Comedies

The question that I ask myself today is do I like tragedies or comedies?

 Allow me to backtrack. About two weeks ago, my mom started reading Shakespeare plays with me. So far we have read Taming of the Shrew, Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, Hamlet, Much Ado about Nothing, King Lear and The Merchant of Venice. If you haven’t read these plays, Antony and Cleopatra, Hamlet, and King Lear are tragedies and the rest are comedies.

Truthfully I like…both.  They both are funny and interesting. I like the cool duel that Hamlet and Laertes had. I like Merchant of Venice for Shylock’s weird bond of one pound of flesh (maybe he’s a flesh collector). Anyway, those two are just examples of what I like about the tragedies and the comedies.

What I Want To Do This Summer

     In twelve days, me and my siblings will be out of school. This summer I want to:
• Write a Book
• Go to the Pool
• Go to the Skate Park
• Win a true Starcraft 2 game
• Etc…
I want to write a 25,000 word book. You may say that it is easy, but it is somewhat hard. I’ve also have no idea what I’m going to write about, but this is going to be a whole summer project. I want to go to the pool at least 15 times. I also want to get Kirby and Elliot to at least go of the diving board once. I also want to go to the new skate park at least once or twice. I want to win a true Starcraft 2 game. If you want to know why, I will tell you. Over the past month, I have spent two weeks playing one Starcraft 2 game a night. I lost all 12 games. Anyway, here are just some of the things that I want to do this summer.

My Violin

Four years ago, I started to play the violin. I thought that it would be fun, but it turned out that I might not want to play it anymore. But like many other things that I like at first then despise it then like it again, I have grown to like my violin. Now I have stuck to violin for four years and I love it now. It is very fun to play and to rush through the notes as if they were wind gusts. It is also fun to play solos and parts that only you get to play. Playing violin is so much fun. If you can, try to play the violin. If you are unable to play the violin, then listen to violin music and see how exciting it is!

The Next 13 Years of My Life

I've been 13 for a week...and here's a "bare minimum" list of things I want to get done before I turn 26.

• Pass Driver's Education
• Pass High School
• Pass College
• Get a House
• Stay Single????
• Move Somewhere
• Get A Car
• Get A Job

If I plan to get a car, I have to pass Driver’s Education.  I want to get a Mustang if I can.  First though, I have to pass High School and College.  I want to go to Iowa State University.  After I get done with school, I want to get a job and a house.  I might get a wife or I might stay single. That is undecided yet. I want to move to Hawaii or California or maybe even out of the country. Anyway, these are just some of the things that I would like to do.

My Birthday

 On Monday the 23, I was finally a teenager.
 I love to play games, soccer and many more.  I also love to bike, eat, and watch movies, listen to music, golf and many many many more.
 I like to play Starcraft 2, Munchkin, Axis and Allies and more. I like watching the History channel and the Military History channel (Fine, I might be a geek, but it has some pretty cool stuff on there). I like to eat pizza, Mac and cheese, bread, Tator Tot Casserole. I like to listen to Flo-rida, Cobra Starship, Maroon 5 and Adele.
