Today I had my first day of Drivers Education. It went from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm. Too long! I am really happy that I'm doing it, and I appreciate that my parents are putting that much money into it, but it's not a joy ride to sit in a class for ten hours. With great power comes great responsibility, right? Haha. I took nine pages of notes today, all on signs, and traffic rules. And I'm only a third of the way through. Woot! Soon as my grades go up tho, I can take the permit test. There was a kid in DE today that has had his permit for almost a year now, and he said that the test was surprisingly easy, so hopefully I'll do well. What I don't look forward to, though, is the DE test I have to take on Saturday. It's 50 questions, and I can miss 15 to get a 70% passing score. -_-
It's really interesting how much I learned today, and it's interesting how many more details you notice while going down the road. Like the signs and the meanings of the colors on them. I started picking out bits and pieces, and thinking about how they would be applied on the drive home.
Geez, though! My head hurts!
I am going to have a new tradition- with every thing I post, I'm going to include a bunny pic of some sort. Be afraid. Be very afraid. MuahahaHaHaHaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

So for those who I haven't blabbered to, I've started ballet. I feel so prettty!
It's wonderful. (Above-That's me in my leotard! I was having an impossible time getting a non-blurry pic of me... Argh!)
Each class consists of barre stretches,
across the floors,
and port de bras (carriage of arms)...
(I suck at port de bras, haha.)
In June, we're doing a school-wide performance of The Wizard of Oz. I look forward to it- but I fear the thought of dancing on stage in front of people. I can just hope that I get much better by that time.
I wanna go en pointe- but I have to have two years of twice a week classes before I advance a level. That means I either will have to take another style of dance, or go to the Saturday technique class. It's all to build up the strength necessary to go en pointe... I'm not sure though. sounds a little intimidating- and I've heard it hurrrttssss!
