Foreign Exchange Student (Japan)

Why am I even posting this when I have only one follower: my mom -_- jeez don't I feel famous. Oh well I feel like posting this because if I don't I might explode and that would be messy >_<

My little sister has always wanted to go to Italy and be a foreign exchange student. I always wanted that but I figured it was too much money so I never asked. One day my little sister was bragging that she was going to go to Italy (we reminded her that to go there, you need to know SOME Italian) and I mention how if I could go anywhere it'd be Japan. My mom said, "Would you like to?" and it sort of went like that.

Now I'm trying to get ahead in my credits by at least a year so I could have a gap year. However, I'm having my gap year in 11th grade so that's the year I'm going to spend in Japan. I'm really excited!!

But I'm going too far ahead of myself here lol. Anyway my mom found this really nice program called: rotary club. The Rotary has connections in 100s of countries. And they send you to anyone of those countries, you really don't get a choice. However, you can ask for a certain country. And by ask, I mean beg :P haha.

Anyway I have an appoint to go talk to Mark-sama who is with the Rotary Club. I hope so much that he'll accept me to go talk to the council. If that goes well, I have an interview and if it goes well again, I get to go :) I'm hoping SO SO SO SO SO much that it goes okay...

Wish me luck... uh... people. Like I said, there's only one person who follows me and that's my mom and she already knows.... Wow I really feel famous -_-

Poet at Heart?

My teachers keep telling me I'd make a great poet cause I'm good at rhyming (ever heard of the rhyming dictionary??). But poems are just plain easy and are a great way to get out of the stupid promt (I know I spelled that wrong) I have to write everyday in creative writing. I dunno. Check out a poem I wrote for Science. It had to contain at least 5 different 'weather words' in it. This took me like five minutes tops. Took longer to load up the computer and look up the definitions than to write it. My science teacher squealed with joy and read it outloud to everyone (inculding me there's 6 that's right 6 people in my science class) in my class.

Weather Poem:
Weather Words:
Fog- When a cloud is touching or near touching the earth
Climate- A long-term condition an area has
Dew- The dew is when the water vapor is collected at a certain temperature and becomes saturated.
Weather- The condition of the atmosphere is a certain place at a certain time.
Precipitation- Anything water based that falls from the sky.
Rain- A type of Precipitation
The fog covered all the grounds.
The climate was cold, so I wore a frown.
Although I couldn’t see it, I knew the dew was there.
As I brushed against a plant; the dampness was the least of my cares.
The fog grew thicker as I walked on.
The weather was worsening as I looked upon
The sky. I know that climate and weather aren’t the same,
I’m afraid I’m becoming less and less sane.
Precipitation hits me square in the face,
The rain touches me like an embrace.
I could not hold it in any longer.
The rain pounds and I wish I’m stronger.
I need to escape, I need to run.
Boy this isn’t fun.
Goodbye for now, I’ll see you soon.
Hopefully the weather will be better tomorrow you goon!
The rain saved your butt today,
But tomorrow you won’t be so lucky May!
I’ll win your heart just you wait,
If only you would take the bait…
I made it end quickly cause I wanted it to be over. I wanted it to end like the guy was running for his life or something more exciting but I didn't want the teacher to think I had problems or something (she's quick to jump to that). Cool teacher though, love her to death.

Weird things in the Past

I, randomly for a reason even unknown to me, was reading a couple of my mom's posts ( about me and my sisters Kay and Vi. As I read some about me, I just laughed. At times I was just making people laugh at me and my 12 or so answers and questions. But most of the time, people keep saying how mature I was for my age. Here's me at 13 being asked "What's So Great About Being a Grown Up?":
Lu thought for a minute, and then surprised me with her answer. She said, "I think the best part of being an adult is so you can prove to yourself that you can be independent and make it on your own. You can make your own choices for your life, and not have to depend on your parents. And just show that you CAN do it yourself."
I am even surprised at my answer. I mean, I always knew I was thinking that, yet it still surprises me.
I understand why people call me really mature for my age but it's not that hard. I just THINK. Nothing more, nothing less. I think before I act and I think before I say anything. It's not much, but it makes people look at me weird for my thought-through answer and my disinterest in falling in ‘love’ (YOU CAN’T FEEL LOVE YET!!) for some random guy at 14.
