Just a short post today. For some reason, I'm exhausted. I have no idea why. I'm hoping to go to bed early. We'll see how that goes. I'll probably accidentally read longer than I should. Has that ever happened to you? When you're so absorbed in a good book that you say 'one more chapter' over and over until you realize how late it actually is? Okay, that was off topic. Anywho.....
Drama club has started up again at school. Peter Pan is this semester's play. I tried out for Wendy, but, unfortunately, I didn't get the part. Honestly, I didn't really expect to. Instead, I'm the maid. I actually have lines this time! Well, only two, but, hey, beggar's can't be choosers. ;)
Today I had a piano contest. I did really well, better than I thought I would. The ranking was divided up into three divisions, one being the best and three the worst. I was ranked in the first division! Woo hoo! :D I was really proud of myself. As I prize I got this little green medal/brooch thing.
Ash Wednesday will be here in a couple of days and I've finally decided what to give up for Lent. I'm giving up Biggest Loser, dessert, and chocolate. Now, you may be thinking, Biggest Loser? What kind of sacrifice is that? It is a very serious sacrifice to my mom and I. We sort of have a little bit of an addiction with that show. It's what I look forward to every week. Giving it up for 40 days will be hard. (For those of you who watch Biggest Loser, Danni's my favorite contestant.)
See what I mean? Random ramblings. I'm so sorry you're having to listen to me right now, but it's hard for me to go days without a post. All my creative energy has got to go somewhere, right? This blog is my outlet.
I'm hoping to make red velvet cake balls this week. Oh, my mouth is watering at the thought. Hopefully I'll have the recipe up before Valentine's Day, but we'll see how busy the week is.
Okay, I'm almost done. I actually have a question for you guys now.
So, as my blog has been gaining popularity, I've been wondering more and more about what you guys want to see on the blog. More recipes? More of my thoughts? More on my writing? Really, it's up to you. Tell me in the comments and I'll see what I can do. Have a great week! :)
These are all on my list to try at some point. Except for the red velvet ice cream. I made that tonight and it was delicious! Make sure to add quite about of sweetener, though, as it's really tart.
