I Have Failed

Obviously, I have failed at blogging. I've been doing a 30 day blog challenge, but since I have failed at that, I've  decided that I'm just going to stop doing it. So, instead of doing one of the challenges, I'm going to start doing the "Quotes of the Month" every month. These are just funny and random quotes me and my family say. Here they are... 

Quotes of the Month!

 "You just have to go back to the giant guy, and get some soup!"-Jill

Jill: "I don't even think I can cheat at this game to let you win. This isn't Candyland."
Grace: "Oh... Wait, what?!"

Dad: "Does Snickers like grapes?"
Grace: "No. She walks around with them in her mouth trying to like them, but then she just spits them out."

Grace: "Oh! It says the Parting Glass, not the Farting Glass!"
Mom: "Yes. It's a glass that you can collect your farts in, and you can share them with others. Apparently there's things I haven't told you yet!"

Jill: "I'm craving queso dip."
Mom: "......We have alfredo sauce!"

 "That would be better than being cooked inside a human pita pocket!"-Ty

"END OF DAYS!!!"-Mom

Grace: "What did you say that was, Ry? Oocu?"
Jill: "The evil Voldemort chicken?!"
Ryan: "It was UCCU!"


"I just licked the flashlight."-Grace

"I am really convinced that Snickers can read my mind."-Grace

"I really want to eat that beaver. Go sit in that post it note."-Grace

"You can smell the clown?!"-Mom to Jill

Day 12: Describe a typical day in your life

My days go a little like this:

      First, I wake up grudgingly at 7:00 to the sound of my alarm clock that makes me almost think a bomb is going off, because it's so terrifying. Second, I go into the bathroom and brush my teeth and put my contacts in. Then, I go into my mom's room and watch the news for about 15 minutes, and then finally go get dressed, which takes me about five-ten minutes to do. Then, I go into my mom's room again and watch the news and eat breakfast. After that, my mom does my hair while I'm on Instagram, Snapchat, Tiny Tower, and Twitter. Then I finally go to school.
My school schedule:

8:00-9:00--Language Arts
9:00-9:30--History (Feels like an eternity)
9:30-10:00--Specialty (Mon. Art, Tues. Music, Wed. Library, Thurs. P.E.)
10:00-11:05--Language Arts
12:25-1:00--Language Arts

After I get home, I usually get on the computer and do the following: Check my e-mail, blog, and do Buzzmath. Then, I actually do my real homework which is math pretty much every day. After I finish my homework, I watch T.V. until my mom gets home, and then we have dinner. We have scrambled eggs on Mondays, but the rest of the week, we have something else. Then, at the end of the day, I take my contacts out, brush my teeth, and my mom reads Harry Potter to me. (We're currently on #6) And last, I go to bed.

Day 11: Describe a few of your pet peeves.

You probably noticed that I skipped #s 9 & 10. # 9 was: What defines you? I didn't want to do that one, because I couldn't think of ANYTHING to write about that. I thought for about 15 minutes about it, and I couldn't come up with anything. # 10 was: Describe your most embarrassing moment. I can think of plenty times I could talk about, but I did not want to write about any of them. :) So, I'm going to skip to # 11. This might take a while... :)  

1. I absolutely hate it when my family leaves the leftover time on the microwave. It's not because I can't see the time, I just absolutely hate it for some unknown reason.
2. I hate it when, at school, I walk into the bathroom to check my hair or something, and five other girls are in there either talking, or checking their hair too. I just think it's really awkward, because I just walk in there for three seconds and then leave.
3. I hate it when, for example, my family leaves an EMPTY pizza box in the fridge, tricking me into thinking there's pizza in there. Then, when I go to open it, there's nothing in there.
4. I hate it when, in my Irish Dance class, people don't dance to the beat.
5. (Last but not least) I hate it when people at school don't push their chairs in, because I either trip over them, or I have to climb over their chair to get across because they're standing in front of it.

Those are some of my pet peeves. I have what seems like billions more, but I don't think I could type all of those down "quick". :)

Day 8: What are three passions you have?

The three passions I have, are Irish Dancing, my family,( I can't think of anything else I'm passionate about so I'll just say texting.)
     One of my passions is Irish Dancing, because I love to do it.:) I don't really know why I love to do it. I guess it's just in my genes.
     I love my family, because, well they're my family! I love them with all of my heart, and I don't know what I would do without them. I'm like the car, and they're like the engine, they're the ones who keeps me going every day. (Great simile, huh?:P) They always help me, and they're always there for me.
     I know that texting doesn't really count as a passion, but I couldn't think of anything else that I could write a paragraph about.:) I hate texting on real phones. I can't explain it, I just prefer to type on an i Pod. Sometimes I text so much, my thumbs hurt really bad afterwards! This may or may not be true, but I think I've texted so much, that I could probably text at 35 WPM. I can't tell if I want that to be true or not.:) Those are my three passions I have.

Day 7: What is your dream job and why?

     My dream job is to become either a mom, a scientist, an author, or a teacher. I want to become a mom, because well, I love kids!
      I want to become a scientist, because I love science. I love doing experiments, and learning new things every day. If I become a scientist, I'll have my lab overfilled with papers and new ideas for experiments. My favorite thing to learn about science every day is probably either microorganisms, or heat. The phases of the moon seem to kinda bore me, but I still like learning how the moon reflects off the sun, and that's how the moon phases are made, stuff like that. Those are really the only things we've been talking about this year. I don't remember anything about science last year. :)
      I want to become an author, because I love to write! I have tons and tons and tons of ideas for books that I'm planning to write. As you can see, I have a blog because my teacher recommended that I get one so I can practice writing in front of people, and that I'm a really good writer. :) I can't wait to get one of my books published some day!
     I want to become a teacher, because as I said before, I love kids! I really want to teach 6th grade, because teaching in k-4th grade is boring because it would be really easy. 5th grade is a little bit hard, but 6th grade is harder. And I would want to teach Language Arts and Science.:) I also really want to decorate my room. I don't have any specific ideas for how I'll decorate my room, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be awesome!:) That is why I want to be a mom, a scientist, an author, and a teacher!

Day 6: What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

The hardest thing I've ever experienced, is math. I do well in science, language arts, and history, but I don't do well in math. At all. I get things like multiplying, division, interests, stuff like that. But Im not at all good at percents, proportions, etc. I do think its kinda think its weird that I'm good at interests, but I'm terrible at percents. My math teacher set up this website for us called BuzzMath. It's really just like online math. He puts math problems on it for us and if we get 100%, we get a gold star, and if you get a lot of gold stars, you could bring your grade up to an A. I currently have a B.;( I wouldn't say that I suck at math, but I'm really bad at it!:) That is the hardest thing I've ever experienced.

Day 4: List 5 things you would tell your 16 year old self if you could

1. DON'T DO DRUGS!!!!!!!!!!!
2. Remember to convince mom and dad to get you an orange slug bug convertible with eyelashes, and have the license plate say gracbug.
3. You need to bring Instagram back!!!
4. Ask her if she knows what an iPod is.
5. Ask her who asked her to prom.

I think this challenge was meant for grown-ups, so I think they would say like, "Why did you get that perm???" But, I'm 11, so I can't really do that. :)

Day 3: What is the greatest amount of physical pain you have ever endured?

The only greatest amount of physical pain I've ever endured, is when I smashed my middle finger in the door a week ago. I was outside getting a snack, and when I closed the door, my finger somehow got stuck. It seared with pain for about 10 minutes. It was the longest 10 minutes of my life. I went upstairs and got myself an ice pack, and, because our family is crazy, we don't have any real ice packs in our house. So, I had to get a sandwich bag, and fill it with ice. That took about two minutes. By the time I went to bed that same day, ( four hours later) it was still throbbing and I still couldn't move it. But, now it feels better!:P I may have had more severe injuries in the past that I don't remember, but I think that's all I remember!:P

Day 2: Describe three legitimate fears, and how they became fears

1. I have a fear of Halloween night. Well, I only get frightened when the Grimm Reaper is holding the bowl of candy, when you can see a faint smile on him under the mask, and when his hand is on the edge of the bowl. This became a fear about two years ago. I was dressed up as a Hippie, and, not to brag or anything, I looked pretty fabulous. :P I was Trick or Treating with my friend Paige. Here's where the Grimm Reaper comes in. As I said before, the Grimm Reaper was holding the bowl of candy, I could see a faint smile on him under the mask, and his hand was on the edge of the bowl. I must've saw a black cat cross the road or something, because every single person that put their hand in that bowl didn't pee their pants. ( I didn't really pee my pants, but I was close to it!) So, I walk up the steps, and as I was putting my hand in the bowl, he grabs my arm, and SCREAMS RIGHT IN MY FACE. I couldn't breathe after that! Then, an 8 year old comes up, grabs a piece of candy, and just skips cheerfully off into the night. I'm really surprised that I remember all of that, because it was two years ago!

Hmmmmm.......... I think that's the only fear I have. Yes, I do have Arachnophobia, Glossophobia, and Phasmophobia, ( Fear of spiders, speaking in front of people, and ghosts.) But, I don't think that there's really a story to why those are my fears. Spiders are just really creepy, I'm shy and don't like speaking in front of people, and yes, I know for a fact that ghosts aren't real, but they still creep me out! :P

Hashtags #

I just got an i Pod 5, so I also got an Instagram. And because I got an Instagram, I started Hashtagging. I didn't realize how much people love Hashtagging. I saw one girl with 30 Hashtags! The most I've ever posted, is about 6 or 7. Here's a really funny video Jill showed me. :)

     Before you watch this, I would suggest not watching the part when the guy comes through the door near the end. He says a bad word, it bleeps it it out, but I still wouldn't suggest watching it.:P

New Blog!

        Hey! This is Grace, and I finally have a blog! Let me tell you the story about how I got one. My mom and I were at Parent Teacher Conferences last night, and we started talking to my teacher about Language Arts. She said that I'm a really good writer. I can't argue with that!:) She starts talking about how two or three other people in my class are really good writers too, and that the grammar packets she's been giving us are way too easy for us. So, she said that she's going to try to rent the computer lab for us so we can do a little advanced English. She also said that she wouldn't be surprised if I published a novel by Jr. High! So, she said that I should have a blog so I can practice writing in front of people. So now I have a blog! :)
