We all see different scary stuff. Some of us find bugs scary. We might think that a specific movie, TV show or game is scary. We also might think that children are scary. We might be afraid of many different things. However, time had passed and I all of a sudden like seeing horror related stuff. Now that I am more grown up, I now know that not everything is real, such as demons, ghosts etc. But I still felt a little skittish when some sort of scary thing pops up.
Throughout this year, I started seeing more and more horror stuff, specifically games, and I actually grew a liking to them. I never thought that a little fragile person like me would actually be fascinated by the idea of demons and ghosts. I don’t believe them, but I honestly think that the creativity that people put into these games, movies, shows and especially stories are outstanding! Getting a little scared from either a jump scare or a plot twist in a spooky story is almost a little exhilarating. That’s all I wanted to talk about. See you later.
I got this idea from a video, so I just decided to make a blog post about it since I don’t have anything else to say. My pet peeves are mostly small. One pet peeve of mine is when people would mis-gender me. I honestly don’t know how people can mis-gender me, because I am clearly a boy, even my voice has gotten lower so they can’t use that in their defense. In 6th grade I had long hair and I got mis-gendered a lot but that was fine since I had pretty long hair. However, in high school one person asked me if I was a boy or a girl, for literally no reason. I didn’t have long hair, and my voice was ok. So I had no idea why this happened but I was just so annoyed at him that I just said, “I’m a boy” and walked off.
Another pet peeve of mine is when people would keep on commenting on how short I am. I’m not joking when I say that literally maybe 30-40% of my high school would just give me looks and tell there friend, “That guy looks really short”. Like, oh yeah, I definitely didn’t know about that when I was in 5th grade, yeah ok, genius. And there are many times where someone would ask me how old I was, and when I would tell them my age they would always say that I looked like an elementary schooler. Like I didn’t know.
One more pet peeve that I have is when studying and/or work has to be done. I have 10th grade to look forward to, so that means I have to get ready for 10th grade, while everyone else relaxes, I have to be looking at Geometry and seeing if I know about transformations and that parallel lines are two lines that never intersect. That is all the pet peeves
Even though it has only been 2 weeks of my summer, I want to make a review because the week that I am in now is really boring. The first week of summer was fine until my dad told me that I had to practice Geometry over the summer. I already knew the basics of Geometry so I honestly felt like I didn’t have to. Also it is summer and for me I honestly don’t want to have to do any sort of work that involved school because I want to relax, and my family always said that I will have time to relax when the big truth was I wouldn’t because doing more school work was not relaxation. But enough about school. The next thing is hanging out with my friends. I was only able to hang out with my friends once last week and of course this week, I can’t because of Covid.
As I am typing this, it is getting hotter and hotter and I honestly feel like not doing anything school related because I can’t stand it with math. Anyways that’s all I wanted to say. So my summer is going, alright I guess.
I haven’t written for another day and the reason why is really simple. A lot of stuff has been happening. First of all let me tell you about the graduation ceremony. It was Sunday and it was time for my sisters graduation. This was really happening, my sister was going to finish school for the last time! That is, unless she decides to get her masters, but who knows. Anyway, when we got there, we were walking to find the line and we did. The line was so long, it went almost all the way across the field, apparently something happened so they had to redo the entire line. We waited in line until more of my sister and my friends arrived. Then it was time for my sister to get her degree. As soon as the speaker said my sisters name, our friends and I started shouting and screaming and cheering. I honestly give myself the award of probably being one of the loudest and obnoxious people for that ceremony, I have video of it and it literally sounds like I was whistling. After that we all went to a Thai restaurant and then had a good nights sleep.
Now for the COVID-19 scare. I got my booster 4 days ago, and as always I wasn’t feeling anything. I don’t know why but ever since I’ve been getting booster shots, I have never felt anything, the only time I really felt anything was just sleepiness. Well the day after the graduation ceremony, my dad started to have a runny nose, it was allergy season so we suspected that it was just some sort of allergic reaction. Well my dad actually got a bit worried and said he wanted to take a rapid test, so we took a rapid test and he is positive. He is staying in the room and of course he is social distancing. Well on that same day, I kept getting headaches and I had no appetite. All I did was lay down and sleep for the rest of the day. I was honestly so scared that I actually had covid, but then I woke up today, and I feel much better. I didn’t know why, but then I remembered! Remember how I said that I never got symptoms from the booster shots? Well yesterday was the day that I finally felt something, and now I am better than ever. Everyone, even though Covid seems gone, it really isn’t so please make sure to keep washing your hands, and social distancing for a bit.
Well, would you look at that, this my 100th post. Now, I’m not going to talk about how writing these blogs helped me, instead I’m gonna talk about a BIG event that happened literally yesterday, also this was the reason I didn’t make a post yesterday. Yesterday was the time for my sister’s graduation photos. We first had to go to Santa Cruz to her college apartment and get ready there. We also planned on going to the beach afterwards. So we decided to bring Ginger. The drive to Santa Cruz was really hot and long, so long in fact that I eventually slept. After reaching the apartment, we just relax, had some ice cream and just looked around the place. Then it was time to get ready. My sister really wanted us to wear white. Not white like all the way down but for me just a white buttoned-up shirt. We went to the college campus, took some photos and they looked great. However, for some reason I kept on feeling sleepy through out the drive to the places for the pictures. Of course that meant that I was dehydrated, so I took some water and I was good. After we were done, it was around 7:50 which means we couldn’t go to the beach. So after giving my dog food, we then changed out of our fancy clothes and got into casual clothes. My dad, mom, dog and I then went home. However, I started to notice that my dog wasn’t laying down and sleeping which felt odd, then later I see that she had threw up. We were able to clean and throw it away and when we got home, she felt much better. It was 11 at night so I decided not to write a blog post in the middle of the night. But here it is now! Soon I will be graduating high school in three years.
Amphibia, wow. Amphibia has surpassed everyone’s expectations. For anyone who don’t know about this cartoon show that has just sky-rocketed, then let me sum it up for you. Three middle school girls named, Anne, Sasha and Marcy, steal a music box that transports them into different places in a land called Amphibia. And if it wasn’t obvious from the title, this land is filled with Amphibians. We’re talking about frogs, toads and newts. Anne soon becomes a part of this family known as the Plantar family. There is a grandpa named, Hop Pop, a tadpole named Polly, and a pink frog named Sprig The entire show is basically where Anne tries to find her friends and get back to their world safely.
I really loved this series since it had great character arch and amazing story plots as well as an on-screen death. I highly recommend watching Amphibia, and if you have Disney Plus, then you can watch there! Now let me hop out of writing this post!
From title, you can see that I made a ventriloquism club. Well I did, back in middle school. In middle school, I realized that not many people knew about this strange act of performing arts that is called ventriloquism. I decided to make my own ventriloquism club, it was a good way for showing people a new performing art piece. The club wasn’t huge, sadly, but it did have my friends and my math teacher. However when the pandemic started, the ventriloquism club was starting to go downhill. People stopped showing up to our weekly zoom meetings and we soon didn’t have anyone coming to the club.
In 8th grade, my math teacher decided that instead of doing a ventriloquism club, we should do a performing arts club. So that is exactly what we did, and it was nice. Some friends came and gone and we ended up doing lots of games. But for me, I would always forget to show up for the meetings because it is Friday, which means I forget everything.
Ah yes! My school is finally over now I don’t have to worry about grades nor essays that I have to write. I don’t have to worry about quadratic equations, or how to find the area of a cylinder. And now it is time for a whole three months worth of fun! Summer for me had started yesterday and it has been great. There really isn’t much to do since my parents still have work and my sister is about to graduate college so I am stuck with doing anything that I want to. And I spend my time by watching YouTube videos. Ha! Who cares about making content when you can watch content! I really do need to finish my next video. Meh, I’ll do it tomorrow.
Summer also means going on vacation with my family, we are thinking of going somewhere but it is still undecided. Let me tell you, my family goes hardcore when it comes for traveling. And by that I mean that we have been to so many places. Italy, India, Disney Land, Canada, Las Vegas, Oregon, LA, Washington, you name it! I mean we haven’t been all over the world but we did go to many places.
Another thing about summer is the climate. My dog recently started sun-bathing everyday. She would just sit on the deck and soak in all that hot, light goodness. So I decided to do it to, and now I actually see the joy, of course soon it gets so hot you go inside and cool down. Let’s move away from the hot side and talk about the cooler side.
In the summer, when I was really young, we would always go to my friends’ pool, but now Covid happened. Covid, is honestly everyone’s worst nightmare! But sometimes it’s ok to not be able to swim, you can also cool down by eating a delicious popsicle or ice cream. I am a big fan of ice cream, my parents of course know this because 95% of the time I would always say if we could get ice cream.
Summer is amazing and I honestly can’t wait to see what is next for my vacation! I’ll let you guys know on what happens!
I think today I will talk about my dog Ginger! If you want to know how we got Ginger you can check my 90th post. Ginger is now 7 months old and as I am typing this she is barking crazy. My dog is a very energetic dog, she can be calm at times but those are the times where we actually have peace. Having Ginger has been a big adventure. Ginger was so calm and sweet when we got her from the shelter and now she is a living demon. Not that she is a bad dog, she can be good at times, but we still have training to do. I actually have a few stories that revolve around Ginger, here is a few.
One of Gingers’ habits is whenever somebody comes inside the house, mostly if it is a friend, she decides to instantly pee on the couch, and she always peed at the same spot, we always had to clean that up, until one time. One of my sister’s friends was coming to watch a hockey game, I had to hold Ginger back so she doesn’t jump out and run out of the house, while this happened, the friend came and Ginger tried to go to the friend but I was holding making sure she didn’t get out of the house, well I fell under her and she peed on me, and then I had to go and take a shower. But she is a puppy and she couldn’t control her excitement at that moment.
Another story that I have was when we went to Ginger’s first puppy class, we recently bought her a new collar in order to fit her little itty-bitty neck, but for some reason it was still too loose. We took the collar off to tighten the collar more, until another dog walks by, Ginger bolts to the dog but thankfully my dad catches her on time. My dog was actually nervous around other dogs but was fine with other people. Now she is great with both dogs and people.
One last story that I have was something that happened recently. Our neighbors also have a dog that would just walk in the garden, now my dog Ginger and that dog know each other. However, whenever the neighbor’s dog was outside in their backyard and Ginger was outside my backyard, she would immediately run to the gate and bark and jump, there was one time where the other dog actually growled at my dog because dog was being a ruckus.
Even though my dog can be a little bit of a pain, she is still a loving dog and is making everyone around her happy.
The musical for my school, “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” is finally going to be in production. As I have told you guys before, this musical has two casts groups. One is called the Good Griefs, and the other one, the Blockheads. I am part of the Blockheads. I am probably the youngest in that group besides one of my friends because everyone else is a sophomore or higher. I really love my cast group as well as the other cast group. Right now since we are almost in production. Us cast groups have to go our own separate ways. That meant we have to stop seeing each other in rehearsals. Sometimes we would sneak in and just say hi. With tech rehearsals, which means we will be working with the tech crew, we are told that we are staying till 9 PM.
You guys might be saying behind the screen, “Wait, Rahi, you did a play before, if there was tech rehearsals that went till 9, you have done that before, so why are you complaining now?” The main reason is because since the second semester had started back in January, I have started thinking of doing much more better at my studies. For some classes it’s working and some classes it isn’t. But I don’t want to fail all of my classes, cause I want to succeed, so I had to start focusing on studies whenever I had free period.
Now that that’s out of the way, let me tell you about the other cast group. The Good Griefs have to go to rehearsal everyday next week. On April 1st is when they will be opening. My theater teacher was also kind to my cast group and said that we got free tickets to the opening night. However, he is not being nice with the other group. I know we will find a way. I am very excited to act, sing and dance as the little bird, Woodstock. Tweet, Tweet!
