Parktown Politics

For English, on the topic of fairy-tales, we had to make little TV show interviews for our class. On the whole it was funny, but what added to the hilarity of the situation was that, since we had to choose an existing character and bring them to life, some people were placed in odd situations. For example, I was Gretel from Hansel and Gretel. Then, a friend of mine played the witch that Gretel kills in an oven. So, basically, I pushed my friend into an oven. Another hilarious example was that my friend Claudia played Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. Then, another girl played the prince that Cinderella married who was now divorced due to Jack stealing Cinderella away from him/her (just for context, I am at an all-girls school). When she said that we all looked at Claudia and she just shrunk away into her table, seemingly guilty for something she hadn’t done. So that is the politics of my school.

I am finally expanding my social life by about a centimetre. I am having a sleep over with my friends, but nothing all weird and girly like one would expect. Rather, we are going to chill in the lounge and watch awesome movies. I’m really excited. Unfortunately, I have SO many projects to complete/work on before then.

I am glad to say that we have ordered the Chameleon Circuit albums from DFTBA records and I am waiting in hope for the day to come. Since I ordered it over a week  ago and the orders out of the USA take between 14 and 30 days, I have less than a month now before I see the CD’s, a Still Got Legs T-shirt and a DFTBA wristband. Yay!

Oh, by the way, I’m currently writing a book. I think it’ll be great, when finished, whenever that will be. It’s called The Secret Diary Of A Spontaneous Shape-Shifter. So excited for it to be finished. But no spoilers just yet.

I am currently reading I Am Number Four and as good as the story is, the writing is not that good. I always love a good Sci-fi, but lets be realistic now. A planet 5 times smaller than Earth has huge people larger than humans and their planet is twice as big as the main characters home planet. Oh and apparently, this author does not realise how BIG the universe is and seems to believe that there are only 18 life sustaining planets in the ENTIRE universe. C’mon, let’s be realistic here. How is that possible? But besides that, I think it’s quite okay and it’s an easy read. I definitely won’t recommend it to someone who is looking for a long, challenging read though. 

That’s it for this evening.
4 days to the next episode of Doctor Who. The previous two have been great, by the way.
