Saturday morning I woke up and went to the farmers market with my friend Tess. We picked out ingredients and went home to create our own Backyard Bowl! If you don’t know what that is, it’s a resturant that serves these delicious fruit bowls. at the bottom its like a smoothie, with acai berries and other healthy things, then you add strawberries, bananas, blueberries and honey. Ours was amazing and we couldn’t even finish the whole thing!
After this we hung out and went to the skate park with our Penny Boards. I can’t skate at all but I was determined to learn.
Here i am waiting to go skating.
Isabella and Graci joined us and we ended the night with a sleepover and a pizza picnic on our yard with our parents… it was really fun and its starting to feel like summer!!!
Gabe on the roof… lookin’ like a Calvin Klein model;)
Lately in class we’ve just been working on our final project and they give us 3 classes to work on it so usually we work hard in one class and then just chill during the other classes. After working on my project during second period on Friday I was walking to third when I got a call from my friend Gabe.
him: “McCailey! Let’s go to the beach!”
me: “Gabe! Let’s go to the Coral Casino!”
The Coral Casino is a pool club right on the beach which I am blessed to be a member of. And there was no way we were gonna be trapped in a classroom watching movies on such a beautiful day. As we chose our lounge chairs on the top roof we made friends with our waitress and it just turned out to be such a relaxing day. We ended the night with a BBQ at Gabe’s house and a movie in my friend Sam’s movie theater.
Oh! And I got stung by a bee and my finger swelled up and was 3x larger than normal!
I have generosity beyond compare! You can always count on me for forgiveness. Eventhough I may not always apologize. I’m the perfect person to hug if your having a bad day. You can cry all you want with no questions asked.
I am a believer. I believe in my heart. I believe in myself. I believe in my choices.
I am many things. And at the same time I’m not. Under all the things I am, one will never change. Whether you like it or not…. I am me.
I am anything and everything. I have sides to myself that I haven’t even discovered yet. I am always learning. Always growing. Always Changing.
I am a country girl, riding horses during the day and strumming my guitar into the night. I am the city girl, who loves the buildings and the sleepless people. I am the quiet girl, who doesn’t know what to say or do. I am the showstopper, who can’t get enough of the spotlight. I am lazy, I’ll admit, but only if I don’t like what I’m being forced to do. When when I do, there is no stopping me. I am a secret keeper… I like to bottle things up and throw them away…. I like to pretend I’m someone else. Someone brave. Someone strong. Someone I’m not.
This whole week in Biology we have been dissecting once living beings. We started by slicing open the heart of a sheep and the next day we removed every layer of its eyes. I wasn’t too happy about either of these because the heart was just fatty and gross and the eye kept excreting questionable liquids everywhere. The back of the eye was cool once we had taken everything out, because it was all colorful and looked like an abalone shell. Yesterday we were faced with the challenge of dissecting a rat. That’s right…. A RAT! wellllllll Challenge Accepted! Olivia, Haley, and Maddie were in my group, but Olivia and I ended up doing all the work because the other two didn’t even wanna get near the beast hahah. I’m not complaining about it at all because to tell you the truth I actually really enjoyed this project. First we had to skin it, and while Olivia pulled back the skin I would very carefully cut it slowly peeling it off. Sounds gross huh? Well we did our rat sooo well that Donny (our teacher) made the whole class crowd around just to admire our good work! It was a pretty proud day for us and I even named our little buddy, Frankie! hahah unfortunatellyyyyy Frankie is now in the trashcan but it was good while it lasted!
Sooo um last Friday a whole group of kids from the MAD Academy went to Leadbetter beach to help clean the trash and make our world a better place. After a quick inspirational talk we got into groups and put on our rubber gloves. Taylor grabbed us a trash bag and we started down toward the beach.
As we picked up small things like cigarette buds and candy rappers we made small talk and hyped ourselves up the the party I was throwing later that night. We hurried through the beach asking people who were tanning if they had anything to give us.
All in all my group collected 4 pounds, which is pretty good considering it was all small trash. We chatted a little longer than all dispersed with the usual “ill see ya later”!
From there, Rosie, Sabina and I hopped in the car to go grab dinner and decorations for my party. It turned out to be a great day and we actually had a ton of fun cleaning up the trash. So if you ever see even a little piece of trash lying around make sure to do the planet a favor and throw it away. CYA!
Hey Everyone! I’m emailing all of you, because all of you have shown interest in being a part of the summer teen showcase that we are putting together. It will be student directed, which means that Janet or any of her staff will NOT be involved with directing. meaning neither Janet, nor any of her staff members will take part in the show. It will be completely student directed. This show is an all broadway showcase which means all broadway music, as long as it’s appropriate because we want families with young kids to be able to come. (i.e. don’t choose the song “dance 10 looks 3″ from a chorus line.) The show will consist of only Broadway songs or approved “off broadway” songs. (you dont need to explain. If they dont know what songs are appropriate then they shouldn’t be in the show haha) We have a few songs already chosen as group numbers and various duets and trios, but if you have any suggestion of songs or just songs that you are dying to perform, let me know! Us (the students) direct it, which means, for example, if (Us direct it… Really?!) Since we won’t be having help with this program you will be requires to help out with your own choreography and staging. If you would like to submit a solo, then you would get to stage or choreograph your own solo, unless you want help from someone else.
The rehearsals for this show will only last for about two weeks,starting June 8th. which means that you will need to commit and attend all of the rehearsals. Mondays through Thursdays rehearsals will be in the evenings until 8, and Fri-Sun rehearsal times will vary based on how much we have done. We are counting on you to get together with whomever to rehearse on your own time. For group numbers we will be rehearsing at the Adderley studio. (A more exact rehearsal schedule will be sent once our cast is more finalized. The ENTIRE day of JUNE 19th we will be at the theater with our dress rehearsal in the morning and two shows later in the day.
ALSO, there will be no tuition to participate show! 😊 BUT if you participate you will be required to help raise money for the rental of the theater and rehearsal space. There will be various group fundraising activities that we will do in order to put this show on! 😊
Please respond whether or not you will participate ASAP (preferably before Wednesday May 15th)
AND, if you decide to participate, please also send any song ideas or fundraising ideas!
Contact if you have any questions!
