A Day at Youth Theatre School

That my friend is a Christopher Turk burn delivered with grace and fierceness.

This is the reason I've been having to cancel plans with a lot of you guys this month. I've fondly been calling it "school" because it's too hard to explain in a quick text. I know, I know, who wants more school?
Let me be clear though, the only school worth going to in the summer is theatre school!

Wham! Bam! Slam... Poetry

Warning: major fangirling ahead. Reader discretion is advised.
I can't even count how
 many times I've watched that movie anymore.

I really love poetry. I mean I have an entire board dedicated to it on Pinterest, it's maybe a third of what I post on Tumblr, and practically everything that fills all my journals. You think I'm kidding, but I have at least eight journals that I can just pick up and start writing things in for any situation.
If you're wondering, yes that is a cowgirl riding a pony on the American flag.
My childhood was memorable. Not to mention I can't even unlock that journal.
Now if I'm going to be all informational and maybe a bit educational I have to throw in a definition here and there because you all probably know that...
ˈpōətrē,ˈpōitrē :" literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature."
Because who doesn't know the sophisticated and wordy definitions like Google off the top of a hat! How many of you know what slam poetry is though? You may have heard of it here and there, seen a few videos like the ones below, but what is it really?

The Many Summertime Struggles

I realized that my summer has already hit it's Midsummer Night minus the whole dream thing. It's the middle of summer, and I'm in a little bit of a crisis. Oh yeah, did I mention that it's July and that high school resumes it's session in August?

Just breathe, just breathe!

I'm not freaking out. I promise. Maybe that's a lie, but hey with my schedule I have a little bit to be worried about. Let's just say the word "honors" pops up by most of my classes, along with the word AP for a few. So I'd like my days to remain class free for as long as possible. Whether that be a month and some leftovers.
Oh barnacles...
So I thought, what else should I write about than the good, the bad, and the oh so interesting summer I've had so far? Recap time!!!

Grace's Guilty Pleasure: Gossip Girl

Okay. I lied, this post isn't going to be about school things related to my 10th Grade Honors English Assignment for the summer. It's going to be something that's a bit more... prevalent in my everyday life...

Camp Totally Rad

I haven't been too punctual recently, but trust me I have the greatest excuse any teenager can say during the summer... I was at camp. No, no, not the one's I'm working at Egyptian or Swaner, but me physically being a camper at a summer camp. Not only was I staying there for about four days, I was also staying overnight.

Where was this lovely experience taking place you may ask?

Oh maybe just the best place ever...

My Two Year Streak

You may or not still be reading this blog, but if you are... Congratulations! We have made it to summer vacation together! In honor of this mystic occassion, I have inserted this beauty for our intellectual pleasure.

So much greatness in only fifty-seven seconds. I personally think that Phineas and Ferb has one of the greatest theme songs of any children's show in the modern day. But that is not my point!
My point of all this... is to prove something along the lines of these gifs to you.

I am a clumsy person.

 Since it is nearly summer, I feel that a list of summer goals is in order. Not to mention... Did I even tell you what I was doing to spend my time in the sweet Utah heat? (Ha ha yeah right, more like dry abysmal drought)
