So i took the math part of the THEA..I walked to the classrooms and it wasn't how I expected it to look..the hallways were regular (though small), the classroom was regular..so what was I expecting? I guess I was expecting the classroom to have seats above each other (think stadium seats). Are colleges even like that, or have I seen too many movies?

I got my Latin AP test score back..baaaad haha

Today's Latin: natura appetit perfectum (nature covets perfection)

for your information, latin is NOT dead..and it doesn't exist?? where have YOU been?? if it didn't exist no trace of it would be here! haven't you ever heard people say "status quo" or heard of "summa cum laude"? english and other languiges comes from latin! sometimes i can figure out words from their latin roots. bands i listen to have latin in them and i like translating it..i like reading real latin from thousands of years ago..it's pretty amazing..go to rome and you'll find latin (and old churches too)..i like the thrill of being able to translate it. even movies have latin in them. latina est non mortuua!

Grandma (on mom's side) got in a car accident and broke her collerbone..I hope she'll be ok. Then today Ryan told me she's divorcing her husband Chuck and had an affair with her friend Jack (Cindy's neighbor) in London and she's gonna move there and marry Jack. I didn't believe him at first but dad confirmed it. Well I think she should divorce Chuck cause he's creepy..but she's hardly spent time with Jack (that I know of). She's on her NINTH marriage..should she really rush into marrying Jack like that??

Grandma and Grandma Hopkins (mom's side) sent me $100 for a granduation present!!! That's waaay generous haha

On Friday after lunch we drove to San Antonio (or near there). It stormed. We got to the school near 10:30 and the hotel at 11 something I think. We had to get up at 6 something yesterday...I went to bed at 1 something (as did the others in the room). Yesterday we took our tests (and I turned my photo for judging). This mottoes test was kinda easier than the one at area. After tests we hung out...I went to the auditorium and checked out the stage lights. There was also a talent show...one was a martial arts guy and did sweet stuff with a sword! There was also a juggler who was juggling an apple and plastic balls and she bit into the apple while still juggling! Whoa. There was a person dancing an Irish jig...that was pretty cool. And finally at 6 something was the awards ceremony. There was a MASSIVE amount of screaming so it was hard to hear. When the ceremony was finally over (too..much..screaming *melts into the floor*) Magister got all the scores of the tests, etc and I looked on the bus...and I got second place for my picture!! The pic was one of the Colisseum I took in Rome. So I can go to nationals if my school decides to go!! Who knew the pic would hold that fate haha? Aaaand today we drove home. Whooo for nationals!!

THE FATEFUL PIC )

Today's Latin: de nihilo nihil (nothing comes from nothing)

Tomorrow I'm going to San Antonio for Latin state competition! I'm coming back on Sunday

Today in tech theater for a reward of actually doing our work (apparently the teacher has problems with first period) we got to watch the band perform. I say near the front so I could see the stage lights better haha. The second band was symphonic band and the first song they played was AWESOME. There were even timpanis haha (thanks Dana *grins*)

Today's Latin: dictum ac factum (no sooner said than done)

This year's area Latin competition was sooo much more fun than last year...probably cause I actually have friends. We drove there and Emily and I looked at sights...when we got to Sherman there were these two AWESOME churches but I couldn't get a good pic of them. The school seemed kinda poor but they had A LOT of stage lights. We went to the auditorium for opening ceremonies and then took our tests. OMG mottoes was sooo hard! I hardly knew anything haha and I was sure I wouldn't win anything. Latin derviatives was better. After the tests I saw a room called the little theater and went inside and they announced Monty Python and the Holy Grail was gonna be shown in the little theater. Haha so we watched it and then had lunch and sat around for awhile. I brought the Movies in 15 Minutes book and people loved it. Then we looked at the art people made (some was really good) and then watched Anchorman...we walked in during the middle of it though. I need to see the beginning haha. Then we watched certamin (Latin jeopardy). Then we hung out some more and then it was time for the award ceremonies. I was freaking out before it started cause the stage lights were changing colors haha. I was sure I wouldn't win anything BUT I WON SECOND PLACE IN MOTTOES FOR LATIN 4!!! Wow I must be a good guesser! Now I can go to state for FREE! YAY! Then we drove home and I ate something and went to bed (it was 8:30 something haha!). And now for pics! I also took a video which I'll upload...it's funny haha

Emily (tech theater) said I should wear make up to school, straighten my hair, and wear tight fitting clothes and look "cute" *shudders* NO WAY AM I WEARING MAKE UP TO SCHOOL. And I'll wear what I want, thanks. I like being comfortable and tight clothes aren't. And my hair is fine too

Top ten reasons Texas winters aren't real winters:
The week before the "cool front" comes, you're wearing a t-shirt and flip flops
As soon as people hear the words wintry mix, they rush out and buy enough groceries to get through the Apocalypse
The use of the words wintry mix makes you believe that some sort of seasonal treat will be falling from the sky
The sand from the road that blows around after the ice melts makes you feel like you're back in the old west
1/8 of an inch of sleet falls and the whole state shuts down
No matter how little slow falls, the roads always manage to get icy, making you car feel like a hockey puck on wheels
All snowmen end up under two feet tall due to lack of resources
The kids who are outside sledding are doing so in recycle bin tops
People tell horrific tales of a light layer of frost that covered their car in the morning. They state emphatically and with wide eyes that they almost couldn't see through their windshield
All major networks neglect any other news story in order to cover the "tundra-like conditions"

We're translating poems of Catullus in Latin now...I like Ovid better haha

Today's Latin: circumit ad idem, unde profectum est, reveniet (what goes around, comes around)
