Well i do of course. I live in a pineapple. I live in a fantasy world in which i live in a pineapple among the people of bikini bottom along with the jelly fish. I eat krabby patties everyday for breakfast lunch and dinner and i live a happy life. Mr Krabbs is my boss and i flip patties for a living. What more could a person ask for. Well i have an answer to that as well, a real life. A person can’t be happy all the time and a person can’t go through life doing the same thing everyday no matter what the circumstance. Patties are nice and all but i get bored, i know you would never suspect that. But ‘m a sponge, what more can you expect.
I’ve realized that there is a lot of stuff that i don’t understand, Like the fact that our country is SUPER in debt but we continue to give away money left and right and spend it on things that we really don’t need. WE were talking about this in my US History and i was getting so frustrated. It just doesn’t make sense you know. My emotions have really been toying with me lately, i feel like i pay too much attention to certain things and that i just maybe allow myself to be to sensitive towards things. School has been going really good though, i’m keeping my grades up and been being happy and everything. Math still hasn’t been going very good.
We’re reading Frankenstein in English and i’m really loving it. I;m way ahead and will probably finish it this weekend. I love english, especially because we played Ultimate Frisbee this morning instead of doing anything productive. It was a lot of fun, and i got a lot of excersize and though i froze my ears off i really had fun. Our team won 5 to 2 and i scored at least one of those points! Which is awesome. I didn’t know i was any good at Ultimate Frisbee but i really like it.
Well my head kind of hurts and i’m cutting it kind of close with posting this on time but i did it either way. Will post again on monday, and this makes a full week of me posting every day! An accomplishment if i say so myself. Thanks for reading.

As i walk down the school hallways i can’t help but think of those that aren’t fortunate enough to b e able to go to school. Some people can’t even go to school and here i am complaining about being here. Summertime, i’m ready for summer time. When i can go and sleep beneath the yellow stars and smell the fresh cut green grass. Bike pedals beneath my feet, my heart pounding in my chest. Being an athlete is my thing, i live for the adrenaline. I live for making the blood pump hard through my veins and arteries.
I have no one to live for so why not live for myself. tell me, have you ever felt that? If i keep my heart strong maybe it will prevent it from breaking.
I’m sure you’re wondering why i feel this way? Well at one point i fell, fell flat on my face for a boy who was perfect in every way. He was nice and a gentleman and handsome, but i, just wasn’t his type. He cared not for me and no matter how he ignored me i still kept falling. My heart continued to be crushed by my minds weight and i thought that my heart would no longer beat in my chest. I had to do something so i turned to extreme biking. It gives me the rush i live for. Tell me you don’t feel my pain?
I’m only my best person, sure i fall too fast, but what is a small town California girl supposed to do? I’ve never known any better. I’ve never been out of the state. Me, i’m just a 18 year old lonely female who doesn’t know what to do with boys. My name is Sophie.
And the story of me you will never know. For i, i am living but not still alive. My heart is beating but i don’t feel anything.

Fleaking amazing!!! 🙂 I’m so excited. Sure i was still kind of hoping for it to be on Russia and that the book would be Tolstoy ya know. Yeah. But i’m still excited about this!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 OH NEXT YEAR IS GONNA BE GREAT! SENIOR YEAR WOHOOOOOOOO!!!! It’s closer than i realize. I’m really kind waiting for it to hit me that i only have like 3 months left as a junior and then i’ll be at the top of the food chain. Hehehehe.
Here goes my first day of writing fiction.
Routine. Routine. Everyone has a routine don’t you know. Some of us sell flowers in the streets of London and others of us live in America and go to school each and every day in hopes that it will lead us to a place where we can make the most of ourselves. College is what we strive for. I’m not saying anything about the people of London, for they are smart too. Everyone is smart. Some people more than others .But i as a young person i know not who those :”smarter people are”. Tell me. Are you smart? I feel as if i am smart. I am sitting here in this town full of robots i think to myself, who is smarter them or i? I have a brain and skin and i feel touch but they, they know everything. Who is smarter they or i? How do i know if i’m even living at all. For all i know i’m just a piece of fiction.
I have not posted much lately but starting now i will begin to post more. I’ve decided that on tuesdays and thursdays i’ll write a good blog post and that on mondays wednesdays and fridays i’ll write 100 words of fiction And i’ll switch off every week. Starting next week monday i’ll write fiction, etc.. I’ve still been writing every day but it’s just not been online. I write stuff down when i have free time in class. Sure most of it ends up ripped up in the trash so that no on will ever read it but i have been writing either way. I feel myself growing as a writer every day, just as i feel myself growing as a musician every day especially after the Regional Orchestra Festival. My shoulders still hurt from the 16 hours-ish of practice but this morning when i went to play in orchestra i could feel that my vibrato was improving and i could do it more efficiently and without shaking like i did so often before.
Regionals was so fun, Mr. Alverez is so awesome and i learned so much. It was really a lot of fun. I really like Round Valley. Still going down there to the high school i find that the story of the Ulrich family tugs at my heart. If you don’t know the story you can take a look at my blog entry i did about it after it happened. https://jojolindsey.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/644/ . The story pulls at my heart, especially after going there a year after i went there last year and seeing everyone is going on like normal, though everything has changed. Maybe i’m just over sensitive to those types of things.
I sat third chair in the Regional Orchestra and though it was not the first chair i was hoping for i still had fun. I found out that i might be able to do the WMSO “Music Is…” concert! Which is super exciting! Out of all the concerts i’ve done for symphony the music is concerts are my favorite. I love playing for all of those little kids and knowing that as a part of that group i might just inspire someone to take up music, or love music more than they already do. It is a WMSO Music Is… concert that inspired me to love music. I remember sitting in that audience and thinking, “I will never be good enough to be in an orchestra like that. They’re so talented and amazing and i’ll be lucky if i’m ever that good.” I was in 5th grade. I remember about a year later listening to the radio and hearing someone come on and say that the symphony is looking for viola, cello, and bass players and just wishing that maybe one day i could audition. That maybe one day i’d be old enough and talented enough to join that group that inspired me so much.
Three years later i auditioned, and made it. Literally all of my dreams came true. I was a freshman in high school. I was only 14. That symphony has made me who i am today, and i wouldn’t be half of the player that i am today if i wouldn’t of auditioned back in 2008. I made friends, and i met people that i will never forget. I’ve done like 14 something concerts with the symphony and it’s amazing and i love it and i hope to play in that symphony for the rest of my life.
I’m considering doing script frenzy in April. It could be fun, i’m not exactly how to write a script or what i’d write it about but i think it could work and i think it could be fun. 100 pages of script in 30 days. Or i’ll just write another novel in april, that novel being the second book to the woods of segesse that i have still yet to really make any progress on. Yeah i think i’ll do that. Or i’ll write the screen play for the woods of segese. haha yeah right. Well this feels good, blogging again. Yes i’m happy to be back. Writing feels so good.
IF i think of anything else i’ll post. I”m off to watch criminal minds. Well actually i’ve been watching criminal minds this whole time but i’m at 713 words and i think it’s time to finish writing and finish watching my show. I think they just made a breakthrough.
Love you guys,
Reporter Lindsey signing off. 🙂
So I don’t know what has been up with me lately! I told myself at the beginning of the year that i’d write a blog post every day and write at least 100 words of fiction every day. Now here we are nearly half way through the second month of the year and i haven’t written a blog post in nearly a month. I have no excuse. I have a laptop and can blog virtually anywhere with wi-fi. There is no reason for my lack of blog entries except the fact that i’ve just been plain lazy. I was supposed to be eating better and getting out more and keeping up with homework etc. etc. … But i Haven’t. And i appologize. Starting now i will start writing at least three times a week. I know it’s not every day but it’s better than nothing. It will be less demanding but still rewarding. Maybe i’ll write a blog post on monday, wednesday, and friday, and write some short fiction on tuesday, and thursday or visa versa. Sound good? k. Thanks guys for being awesome.
