#6) Three Shows, Soon to be Four: I have always been very involved in the drama department. This year, I was in a total of three shows, with a fourth just now starting up. In, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum the cast all formed a tight bond. I got to form a relationship with all of the seniors as well as cast members of all grades. The show was so funny, and we all had a great time putting it on. It is definitely a show I will always remember. In, Seussical the Musical it was a new experience. It was the first show we did with our new director. The cast was larger, and the show was different. However, the more we went to practice and performed the show, the more fun it got. I made many new friends and have many memories. And the last official show was, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. It was the production put on by Playtime Poppy (see other blogs). It was great fun and was a show I will never forget. This is because I had laryngitis and bronchitis during our shows, but I managed to pull it all together and help make a great show! I am now starting to have practices for Harvey, where I will be playing Veta Louise Simmons. I am very excited and it will be a great way to start off the New Year!
#5) Go Pack Go: What a great year it has been to be a Packer fan! I get a lot of grief for rooting for the Packers in a Viking-Bears zone, but that doesn’t stop me! I am a true Packer fan, unlike half of the nation that jumped on the bandwagon when the Packers started their GREAT season! I started being a Packer fan the summer of 2010 when I went up to Green Bay, Wisconsin. I got to see them practice and from then on, I knew they were going to be my team. Also, part of me just wanted to be an aggravator. I knew my “new” team would get on my stepdad’s nerves because he is a Vikings fan, and it would also get on my dad’s nerves because he is a Bears fan! I have remained faithful to the Packers since then, and let’s be honest- who wouldn’t!? Let’s hope they keep up the good work! Go Pack Go!!!!!!!!!!!
#4) First College Visits: I have been receiving a lot of information from colleges for a long time now. However, being a junior in high school, looking at colleges has been more than just receiving information; it is about actually getting on campus. In 2011, I started my college visits. I went to Cornell College and St. Olaf College. This was an interesting experience. It made me REALLY look at the college and it gave me the opportunity to learn what I wanted and didn’t want from a college. I can’t decide what college I want to go to by just visiting two. In 2012, I know I will be visiting more and more which will help me to make one of the biggest decisions of my life! (535)
