Man, It's been awhile! Lots have happened! The first and very most important thing is that I am going to HAWAII!! I'm so excited. There wasn't even a hesitation with the parents. I'm one lucky girl. Also, I am 85 dollars into it. only 815 dollars to go!
The science project I was stressed about, ya, I got all 75 points. I got up with my partner, talked for about two seconds, showed him our page about what we found and then he gave us the points. My stress was totally wasted! That darn man. It's still the subject from the devil though! Another thing concerning science, Last night the fam and I were talking about schools and what needs to happen to improve. I brought up the subject about my wonderful science teacher. I told them how he doesn't teach. He just tell and expects us to fully understand. (He's wrong by the way). My parents asked me if I was reading my text book out of the classroom if I didn't understand. Obviously I said no. Who does that? So, now I have to read my textbook before I go complain. Being the good person I am, I'm up for the challenge. Wish me luck!
I am in Holocaust world right now! We are starting to read The Diary of Anne Frank ( fun fact: Did you know that her name is actually pronounced ah-nn-ah? It is true) so we are learning about it in English. We are also learning about the Holocaust in German. We are watching the movie Jakob the Liar. It's about a Jew named Jakob who lived in the Ghetto. It's interesting, but also sad. Obviously because it is set during the Holocaust. I also finished this book called The Book Thief. It is about a girl who lives during Nazi Germany. Her mother can't take care of her so Liesel (the main character) Goes and lives with foster parents who later on hide a Jew in their basement. I cried at the end. A cool thing about this book is that it is told in the point of view of death. I highly recommend it. Finally, I watched the movie The Boy in Striped Pajamas. This is one of THE saddest movies of all times. I cried and cried. It's about a little boy who befriends a jewish boy in a concentration camp. Everybody I have talked to said they cried during this movie. So, beware if you are planning on watching it!
On a happier note, ONLY THREE MORE WEEKS UNTIL D.C!!! Cannot wait!

So, I have this friend who is part hawaiian. She goes to Hawaii almost every single year, and knows it like the back of her hand. Anyway, She told me today that she was going to go to EFY in Hawaii in 2011. She's like, "Sid, I really want you to go!" I'm like ok!! So, I might be going to Hawaii for EFY. I'm so pumped! She told me that her uncle works for the airlines and so he can get us first class tickets for only $600 dollars. It's still expensive, but for Hawaii, it's totally worth it! She also told me that we could extend our stay for another week and live with her aunt! Sun, beach, friends, church, and Hawaii. Who would possibly turn that opportunity down? I definately can't! There is just one slight problem. My mother might not be so kind as to allow me to go. So, I have come up with a few reasons why I Sidney should go to Hawaii :
- It's for the church
- I would be earning the $600 dollars
- I'm the best daughter ever!
- It would be the worst desicion EVER to not let me go
- I would get a good tan
- IT'S HAWAII!!!!
Cross your fingers the parentals allow it.....

So, basically, I'm trying lots of new things! I recently started color guard. It's so weird and so different. I feel like a paper back book laying face down in a pool of water. I'm absorbing all the many new and interesting (Lots of interesting things with color guard. Gay boys just to name one.) things, but I am completely out of place. I can very bluntly say that I hate it! The flag is seriously 6 feet tall. I'm only 4'11" I have come accross problems with these two numbers. The flag landed on my head the other day, and now I have a very big and very painful bruise on my forehead. Not very fun. An upside of color guard, though, is that my coaches are two gay men. It brings much laughter to the early morning practices! One of them, We'll call him Bob, comented on my hair. He asked me if I had cut it, I said no, and he told me, "Well it looks cute anyway." Oh boy! Not the most normal thing to come out of a boy's mouth. All I can say is farewell color guard you will be missed. uh, maybe not.
