I'm exhausted and i still have over 20 pages of history to outline. That basically sums up my day.

I want it to be the weekend. Well, no, scratch that. I want it to be a weekend without speech team so i can SLEEP.

So I found most of my files. Then I had to wait for ages while they all reloaded onto my iPod. I'm still missing songs, which is pretty damn frustrating, but I don't have the slightest idea where they are, so i guess i'll just live without them.

I forgot to say earlier--I love my mom. well, obviously, but she is the greatest. So i'm pretty obsessed with this actor Matt Raftery and I see every play he's in around here and all that jazz. So my mom decided to write to him care of the marriott and ask for an autographed picture. She didn't tell me, but sure enough, what should come in the mail today but an autographed picture! *squee*

oh, and laura, which style mugglecast shirt do you want? I'm thinking I'll probably get the ladies cut, because the normal one will be HUGE.

My itunes is fixed, supposedly. Except that I'm missing almost 100 songs from my library! So now I have to go try to find them somewhere on my computer, because I like them. Yeah, i'm a little mad.

The speech tournament was, eh... I thought I performed really well, so I was quite disappointed when I didn't make it to semis. I was even more disappointed when I got on the bus, looked at my critique sheets, and discovered that I'd gone 2-5-2. and the judge who gave me a five, which was last place in that round (and it was the one round that i felt like I was actually better than other people) said I was great. Didn't give me any criticism at all. It's the week before regionals, dammit! I NEED to know what I'm doing wrong that makes me the worst in a room! So I'm pretty frustrated about that. I got some good comments from one of the other judges though, thank goodness. So I guess I'll just work on those this week and hope that my judges at regionals are more like the ones who've liked me, rather than the ones who haven't.

Now it's sunday night and I'm going to go to bed nice and early for once. My mom accidentally moved everyone's music somewhere where we can't retrieve it from, so I can't update my ipod until our computer guy comes to fix it. I'm pretty frustrated, because I had some new songs I wanted to get on my ipod, plus this means I won't have my MuggleCast for a while.

I had a lovely day off today. I slept in, then went to see The New World. It was really good. The cinematography was amazing, and the story was beautiful. I thought it could have been about half an hour shorter. About an hour in I sorta stopped paying attention and just was anxiously awaiting the first glimpse of the most amazing man alive (Christian Bale of course). He was great. I got to hear his English accent again! FINALLY. sheesh, took long enough. It's great that he can do such a convincing american accent, but they should just make all movies take place in England so he can use his English accent, becuase American accents are boring. well, normal american accents are boring. I like southern accents. Anyhow, after the movie, we went to Chipotle and I managed to eat a whole burrito for the first time. Of course, I'm not eating dinner after that. Now I'm just relaxing. Tomorrow we are so kicking ass at the speech tournament. I mean, if we could get first last week with finals to worry about, think about what we could do this week.

I'm done with the application. I don't think it's very good, and certainly not what they're looking for, but I had fun writing the essays. I pressed submit, then went to print the application and oh shit. I saw that on the date next to the "i agree to these terms and conditions" box, I had typed in 01/26/1988. MY BIRTH YEAR! oh my goodness... i must be tired

I want to practice the violin right now. It probably seems rather out of the blue, but I've been practicing a lot lately. For some reason, I just keep wanting to practice instead of do other things that I should be doing. Like homework. I keep practicing for an hour when I should be doing math. I guess there are worse things I could be doing though.

I love emma. And everyone else who isn't as obsessed with mugglenet as laura and I are. my shirt came, by the way!

While talking about what I would write my last essay on, emma and I had the following conversation:

martunibenuni: ok... i think i'll take laura's old advice and talk aobut stalking emerson
idanslikeapnguin: there u go!
idanslikeapnguin: oh emerson, now i remember who that is
idanslikeapnguin: nature, right?
martunibenuni: huh?
idanslikeapnguin: he wrote nature?
martunibenuni: haha! maybe, this is the other emerson
martunibenuni: emerson spartz, creator of mugglenet, object of my obsession...
idanslikeapnguin: okay you don't know it but i'm making the sign of the cross right now

Don't worry, i'm not actually talking about stalking emerson. Although, I actually had a conversation with my parents about stalking at dinner. We were talking about Christian Bale, and they were asking what I would do if I were at a job interview or whatever and someone mentioned christian bale. Then they called me a stalker! I have never even THOUGHT about stalking christian bale. goodness gracious! I was sure to tell them that stalking isn't a crime, it's actually the highest form of flattery. *points to icon*

Thank god my finals are over. Jessica went and found out what she got on her history final, but I've decided my week has been bad enough already. I don't need to make it worse by seeing my grade. My chem final was harder than I htought it would be. There were more factual questions than on the practice test, and I didn't know any of them. I think I got most of the questions I answered right though, and I feel confident about the reactions. well, except that I just remembered that I combined H20 and SO2 and got H2 and SO3, when I'm pretty sure the answer is H2SO4. Damn. The french final was pretty easy. I'm glad I studied. I know I got most of the vocab right (except I put "chercher" for to search... but I know that wasn't the type of search he meant...), and I only left one problem out of 181 blank.

Now I'm frantically writing essays. I have two more to write by midnight. I'm just hoping that the system isn't on Eastern time, becuase I'm probably going to need that extra hour.

I've now taken my history, calc, and english finals. The history final was impossible. There were questions on there about periods we haven't even studied yet! I think I probably guessed on about half of the questions, so I'm just praying for a C. The Calc final was really hard. I know I got some problems wrong, but I think that I have a shot at having done well on it. The English final was pretty easy. I'm just hoping that my teacher liked my essay.

Tomorrow I have chem and french. After the history final, anything will seem easy. I'm not at all worried about chem, and I just have to study french a lot tonight.
