Long Time No Blog

So, it's been a long time, eh! Sorry about that, I've been very busy. Senior year is supposed to be our slacking year, but no, not me. I have to work nearly everyday, I have to study for Advanced Placement Government, and just general ickyness around the house and school.
But the money saving for my Mac is going well. I have $408, and I'm getting $25 more for taking a survey on Saturday. I've just decided to take all the money I get for graduation gifts, combine it with my Income Tax returns and go from there. I'll hopefully have enough by the time I have to go to college.
When I haven't been working and doing homework, I've been spending more time with my family because I know my time with them is getting shorter. So we've been watching movies together. So far we've seen The Prestige, Flushed Away, The Holiday, Over the Hedge, Happy Feet, Madea's Family Reunion, Casino Royale, Lucky # Slevin, The DaVinci Code, Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties, and The Omen. Those are all the one's I can remember right now.
And, because the school requires it, I've been reading a lot more. I like to read, but they require us to take a certain amount of tests before we graduate.
This increase in reading isn't bad, because now I'm writing more. I'm writing at school (cause it's one of the only places I can get a chance to write). Yes, I'm writing again, and it feels so good! I'm taking what's already written and planning out the whole novel from there so I don't hit a wall and get stuck. It's going smoothly, but the story as a whole feels like it's gonna be a whopper, because I've got a lot of it planned out, and the adventure that I planned my characters to go on has barely started.
Well, that's all the updates I've got so far. I'll try to post more often so you guys aren't hanging on your seat with suspense, ha ha.

That's an urban legend about the "slacking senior year." My senior year was my worst -- I hope yours is better for you.

Ha ha, I figured that out the hard way. My Senior year isn't my worst, because nothing can top the nightmare of Chemistry *shudder*, but it definately ain't easy. Thanks, it's almost over anyway, then...freedom!
