I am super behind on NaNoWriMo. I am barely at 15,000 words, and in order to keep up with my word count, I have to go and write about 2,000 words a day to reach my goal of 50,000! The reason behind this is not because of procrastination, but because of activities that I did over the weekend, and I have to conclude it being one of the best weekends I have had this year.

engineering camp were there, including my friends Sabrina and Kristina-- who are both amazing flawless ladies, by the way. :)
Afterwards I made it on time to musical theater performance class, and as a reward for working so hard, all five of we students that were there that day ended up doing a bunch of improvisation where we acted like preppy cheerleaders at a surgery and did a whole bunch of different scenes. The two youngest in our class, both fourth graders, did skits that made me crack up so much.
I wasn't sure what would happen. I texted my friends frantically the evening prior to Sunday, who some were going to see Dracula Untold. I had mixed feelings about watching that movie-- mainly because I watched the trailers it was too intense for my taste. (If you place that and another horror film trailer together, you get a"I-am-terrified-to-my-seat" feeling.) By then I told my parents it was okay if we went shopping in the area where the pizza party was going to be held at, until my friend Kristi called me! She and I made plans within an hour to watch Big Hero 6 in another theater in town (which was super close to being sold out).
We all laughed at the trailers, and smiled at Winston in Feast. During the entire movie, I felt delighted. I laughed, I cried, and I can totally feel the relationship between Hiro and Tadashi, along with the metaphor Baymax represents. The little girl next to me kept buzzing to me and my friend the entire time, and it was cute.
(P.S. Blogs by Kids, which I have been following since about a week the blog was created-- yes I get around on the blogging community a lot-- featured me, which you can read here! If you all want to meet bloggers by other kids and interests as you, that is the place to be!)
