Happy (early) Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving tomorrow! And if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope that you have a nice day off from school. :) And if you don't live in the United States, have a huge meal for dinner anyway.
Personally I have nothing against this holiday, though it usually isn't very enjoyable to me. Family parties are definitely something that I try to just endure. I'd much rather just spend the day off doing whatever I want (like reading). I'm actually going to three Thanksgiving dinners, none of which except maybe the last one, I'll actually have a good time at. Sigh...
Well, have a wonderful holiday!

I went to the midnight showing of Twilight last night. It was so stupid because we didn't even get to see the movie until 12:15, because they had to do some promotional fashion show right in the middle of the theater beforehand. It was lame. Though I think that all the boos and the chanting of "start the movie!" made them finally realize that this crowd was in no mood for that and that they should start the movie already.

And right now I'm so tired, that I really can't sort my opinion of it into anything that is coherent. So I guess I'll give it later.

Now I have to go to school...Bleh. I hope I'll be able to stay awake.

The Poem I Chose

I was looking for a poem to memorize for over an hour yesterday! Sadly, the teacher said that we couldn't do The Road Not Taken and none of Emily Dickinson's were long enough. Sigh. So my older sister suggested that I do this one:

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a croud,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed-and gazed-but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Today was a good day. I got my first quarter report card today. A lot better than I thought it was going to be. Plus, I got my letter of acceptence into NJHS. Plus I got a ninety-five on my biology test.
Finally, school is actually going okay after it stunk for a really long time. So that's why I finally have a weekend of peace where I don't have to stress out over anything. Yay!
But I actually need help with a couple things, and some suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First, does anyone have any suggestions for a poem I could memorize for my English class? It needs to be at least twenty lines, and since I don't read much poetry, I have no idea what to do!

Second, I'm doing book reviews for my school paper, and I need ideas on what books I should do. It needs to be YA, something that appeals to all types of readers, and is school appropriate. I'm lost on this too, so I would love recommends.

So any type of suggestions at all on any of these would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Does this mean I'll post more?

I got a new template! Maybe this will help motivate me to post more. I have to admit, there are no excuses. I can't say I haven't had time. Because I have had time where I could have made a short blog post. I've just been way too dang lazy. So I promise, more frequent updates will be coming. Though they will probably be short and sweet like this one.

More later (seriously).
