Hermione: I've given up trying to make friends with her.
Ginny: I don't like her - too weird.
Neville: Still doesn't know who I am.
Fred and George: She doesn't notice if we drop a dungbomb in front of her nose.

Harry Potter, CLEP, and some other things.

hi people! I'll start with the happy stuff. I find it harder to go from sad to happy than from happy to sad.
ok, so I saw Harry Potter, and I think its one of the best movies I have ever ever seen. it was so good! and it was really really funny. :D I would definatly reccomend it. it was also very like the book, like I knew exactly what was going to happen, because it was so like the book. awesome, right?!
ok, so I didn't pass the CLEP. oh well. too bad. I got a 47 but I needed a 50. my mom wants me to take it again, but I don't really want to. I already have highschool credit. yes, it would of been nice to have college, but the next time I could take it is in January, and I would have to review a lot, but this winter I am going to be taking AP American Government, and that is going to be a tricky class. (AP is another test, its highschool credit which can be transferred to college.)

oh, and btw, for all the people out there who have a someone dying, I'm sorry.


ok, that was random, but I was just thinking that if I read someone's blog, and it said that, and I had someone I loved dying, I would feel a lot better reading it. :)

some secrets that people may not know about me.

this is kinda a reply to Cherry Diva's pssst, I have a secret! post.
ok, here goes.
I haven't read, or watched twilight, and I don't want to.
I don't have Twitter, MSN, facebook or Windows Live Messenger.
before all my friends started being obsessed with Twilight, I didnt have a clue who Robert Patterson was. I have no idea which Jonas Brother is which, Most of my music on my Ipod none of my friends have ever heard of, I have never ever ever fought with any of my friends (most of them think thats really weird.), my last birthday was fifties themed, I don't know hardly any celebritys, but I can name the authors of my books, i.e. the BFG, Roald Dahl. Fable haven, somehting Mull. Dealing with dragons- Patrica C. Wrede. lots of people think thats weird. My favorite type of math is long division, multiplication by two digit numbers, and figuring out what X is. I am so happy when I get something figured out. I'm kinda considered "the drama freak" person when we do plays, I am the tallest person who is in casts when we do plays, my favorite computer game is Pirates Of the Carribean online, which like, none of my friends had even heard of until I told them about it, and I hate Webkinz. lol, I think thats good enough for everyone to know. I hope Cherry Diva feels better now.

ahhhhhhhhh.... ONLY TWO HOURS TILL I TAKE THE CLEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will make sure to alert everyone whether I passed or not, when I find out!!! I am so scared!! I wish I could be calm like Linda, "Chill Angela, you will do fine"!!! omigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigosh!!!!!!! and its over an hour long! 90 min. to be exact, and it has 120 questtttttionnnnns!!! omigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigosh!

Harry Potter!!

ahhh!! run away run away! tomorrow I take the CLEP, and I am so nervous!!! also tomorrow we (my family and I) go to see Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince!! if I pass, its a reward. if I fail its a consolation prize!! so either way its a win win win lose! lol, so I guess its not an either way, is it. oh well. :D so, I have made all these flashcards today, and I can answer all of the them correctly, but chances are none of them will be on the CLEP!!! ahhhhhh, I am so nervous! my friend Linda has been trying to help me, but its not working! (sorry Linda.)

omg, its 11:11 AM!

ok, other than that...
yesterday I went to diving, and had an awesome time. I GOT TO DO BACKBENDS. :D
then I went to swimming, and fifteen seconds after I got into the water, the lightning detector went off, so we had to go. :( it was the last swim lesson too, so basically we missed it!! *sob*
then I went to Katie's birthday party, yay. :D it had already cleared up, so we got to go tubing. yipee! lol, mostly it went like this:
Linda, Abigail, and Liz would go together, and then
Katie, Madeline (or sometimes her sister Victoria), and I would go together. lol, it was fun.
except the music was to loud. I dunno how people can stand really loud music. Madeline and I were talking, and we were literally yelling to hear each other. ugh.
then we went home, and I made two posters for the CLEP, which is on tuuuuuuessssssday... AHHH!
yup. oh, and I wanted to share this link with you peoples, its really cool: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/glenn/technology/warp/ideachev_prt.htm
I got it from a friend of mine, and I think its really kinda neat.

things and more things, and, yep, you guessed it, even more things!

hi! today is my dad's 40th birthday!!!!! yayayayayay! lol. So, so far my day has gone like this.

7:45-wake up. got up to late to help decorate dad's chair. :( *
8:15- eat breakfast with my family. really yummy pancakes. yay!
8:30- Dad opens presents! he got (a) a picture from Ken. (b) a new and improved mouse trap (by my sister Christina) ** (c) a new Christmas coffee mug (from Christina) (d) a new popcorn popper (e) popcorn sprinkles (f) a bunch of popcorn.
8:35- went downstairs and got into swimsuit.
then I checked people's blogs, and decided to post.

*our tradition, is to decorate the birthday person's chair before they get up. this was started on one of my birthdays, which I couldn't have my party on my birthday. (it was the first one for me that I couldn't have the party, on my actuall birthday, so I was very upset.) so I got up, and my chair had balloons and streamers on it. that was one of my best birthdays ever.

** I am almost completely certain that Christina is destined to become an evil queen or something like that.
it was a plastic box, with PUSHPINS stuck into the bottom, and Chris is like, they step on the pins and DIE!!!
ahhhhhhhh, run run run run awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy!!!!

Happy Fourth Of July!



yes, I know, this is a day late. lol.




On Fourth of July, 1776, The Declaration of Independence was signed.




Of the 56 signers: 17 lost their fortunes, 12 had their homes destroyed, 5 became prisoners of war, 1 had two sons imprisoned on the British starving ship Jersey, 1 had a son killed in battle, 1 had his wife die from harsh prision treatment, and 9 signers died during the war.


from American Minute by William J. Federer



To celebrate the 4th, my family grilled (yum yum), we watched the first third of the first National Treasure, (really, really REALLY GOOD.) and we watched fireworks. They had particuarly good fireworks this year, I don't know why. They were really pretty though. sorry, I didn't have a camera, so I couldn't take pictures. D= it was fun though. =D
