Ah, I haven't started school yet :P Next week though off :/ I still have no idea what colorguard is, but I'm glad you feel like you're accomplishing more in it! :D I've been trying to get back into dance. Thursdays and Saturdays especially are so long and tedius and I have to understudy for this dance and it's so fast and like I can't comprehend it. Meanwhile Shypaw sits outside eating a snack. She gets to skip her understudying :P It's only had one rehearsal but like, oof :P
Ahaha lucky enjoy it while it lasts! Colorguard is those flag twirlers that accompany the band, but there’s also a lot of dance involved (you would probably like it because of that haha) and we spin other stuff, most commonly wooden rifles and sabres. In my show this year, for one movement we’re in the 1700s, so we get to spin parasols! It’s really fun :D
Actually, after I posted this, I worked on a rifle toss that i’ve been having trouble with and I got it! I am not consistently catching it well and my catches aren’t strong yet, but it’s really good progress!! Also we do tosses on both left and right and we’ve learned the left toss but not the right, so I taught myself the right toss and I sort of have that too which feels really good :D
ooh have fun with that! Yikes I definitely know how that feels. I feel that way with colorguard a lot, especially during the summer practices when I decided to try spinning with the advanced rifles. (That didn’t work out very well :P) the good part is you’ll be all the better for it! Good luck! Why does she get to skip? At least you’ll have that much more experience dancing at a higher level :)
I would like, trip on something without a doubt. I am so clumsy(it runs in our family. My grandpaw has like 100 stories which all end with him in the hospital. It's a miracle he's still alive today) so like, I'd fall and then hit everyone else and then yeah show's over :P
It always feels so good when you get something right :P Dance is a lot like that, you just have to keep trying and yet you still won't get it 100% of the time :P
She gets to skip her understudying because the dance she understudies always has rehearsal during the dance she's in. So she's just really lucky basically. And last week during my understudying two of my friends joined me, but one especially is saying she isn't going to understudy with me today so like I'm panicking because like I mean I'm friends with the other girls but like ughhh I have a feeling the two of them won't be doing it today. That's the one thing I don't like about my friends, they don't know how to make a good impression :P
Honestly same I feel like I’m 100% more clumsy with equipment and it just slips out of my hands literally all the time :P you’d probably be great at the dance part though! Your grandfather sounds like he’s had a very interesting and eventful life :P
That’s bad planning what if they need her? : P you’ll be better for it! I know how you feel as it’s scary I’m sorry but honestly the best you can do is go and do your best and try not to worry. You can only control what you do, not anyone else.
My grandpa had like, an aneurysm like a few years ago, and they thought he'd never be able to walk or talk again. He walks fine, and he talks all the time and you can't get him to shut up :P
Yeah, but I undestand why because the dance she's supposed to be understudying belong to a teacher who has to leave soon(She's having a baby!!! :D ) so they're probably trying to squish it in. But in just over a month there will be a day I get to leave early and she has to stay to understudy ;) And I'm about to get out of understudying too soon. But I think both my friends are going to be ditching me now :/ But Shypaw is so mad about it because it's actually pretty important so she's going to ask Ms. Strongheart if she can understudy as well. :P
Haha is he like... secretly immortal or something? Or a magical healer? XD seriously though, that’s incredible! Let him teach me his ways :P
I mean that had some sense to it but I still don’t get why they would choose her when she has another class at the time. That’s really bad planning bc what if she’s needed? Then she doesn’t know the dance and that would be bad :P That’s something to look forward too! So understudying is just something you can just leave when you want to? I’m sorry about your friends, i’ve been in that situation so many times so I know how you feel haha. But luckily you’ll have her!
Probably because it was the only way to split us up, and it needs to fit in during a specific time slot :P Idk, I just think it's unfair because she always gets it easy :P Understudying isn't required, but it leaves and extremely good impression. You don't have to do it if you have a lot of homework or something, but especially during the fall they want you to do it because everything is just hectic.
We have only like, 3 hours on Thursday, and 2 hours on Saturday for rehearsals, and in order to fit in every dance on the schedule some will have to overlap :/ But they have other understudies for that dance though.
Yeah. Technically, for company we only need to do the core classes(ballet, modern, jazz) and one extra class(pointe prep, pointe, lyrical jazz, or the workshop) but everyone does all of them :P (except you only either do pointe prep or pointe because there's no point in doing both :P ) So yeah, everyone chooses to be going all over the place all the time :P AND they have pre proffesional too which takes up more time than anything else I think, but I didn't get in so I don't have to do that yet ;)
Only the company rehearsals fit into those five hours. The rest of our classes are spread throughout the week, each an hour long. Ballet is twice a week :P For example, I have modern, ballet, and point prep on monday(with an hour break) on Tuesday workshop, wednesday my second ballet class, Thurdays I have a 45 minute long littles hip hop class I help teach, an hour break, and 3 hours of company. Friday I get a day off :P Saturday I have lyrical and jazz, a fifteen minute break, and then roughly two hours of company. Pre proffessional goes over the process of becoming a professional dancer. So I think they learn anatomy, how to choreograph, and stuff like that to prepare for life as a dancer :P
Ohh I see, that makes more sense. That’s a lot! What does company mean, exactly? I keep thinking of the company in a musical but that’s probably not it :P you teach a class? That’s super cool!! How is that going? Oh hmm that sounds pretty neat. Is it a popular class?
It's basically a group of the more, skilled/passionate dancers and it basically gives us more dance time and times to perform and dance with kids we wouldn't otherwise dance with. All the kids are like 7-9 in age and so like... There's some that are just... Rude :P And some that don't pay attention and only 3 weeks with them is still hard cuz I don't really know their names, although I know a few from last year :P Well, you have to be level 6(second highest level) in order to audtion for it. Basically, someone else that isn't from the studio comes and watches you and rates how you dance and gives you tips and stuff(all in an email, not face to face, luckily) so I just went in, danced and failed, and then went home and got my score. :P Shypaw and I were the only level 6s to try out and the only ones that didn't get in, but we both got 4 out of 5 for maturity :P So not just anyone can take it :P
Geez wikia really likes not giving me notifications again I’m so sorry :P
That sounds neat! That sucks I’m sorry but hopefully they’re not all horrible. Do you like it? That sounds terrifying, but also pretty helpful. Are you gonna try again? Congrats! Overall sounds pretty fun :D
The three of the kids from the class last year that I know are pretty lowkey, and a few of the other kids are very mellow, but then there's always one or two that just don't behave :P I might try again but it seems to have a lot more hours of it than I thought and Idk if I'll actually be able to cope :P But we'll see :P
Okay that’s pretty good I thought it was all of them :P hopefully those couple difficult kids get better! You shouldn’t push yourself but also it sounds like a pretty good opportunity! You don’t have to decide yet :)
Hopefully. In roughly two hours I'll be in class with them so hopefully they behave more today. :P It's kinda awkward because one of the behaving kids is my friend's little sister :P Yeah, but I have plenty of years to eventually try it. My gut just tells me I'll probably be miserable. So far this year I've been enjoying my afternoons of BlogClan :P My mom even said that I don't have to do it if I don't want to yet.
I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I'm an adult. I'd like to teach dance or something. But I've always had an interest in something to do with making movies but I don't know what I would want to do with them :P But my mom said you can make good money being a manager of a fast food restaurant so like that's a possibility if all goes downhill :P I don't know, mom doesn't expect me to know what I want to do but it seems like everyone else thinks I should have it all figured out. :P
Ah yikes well by now you’ve already had your class so how did it go? Oof that’s awkward but at least she’s behaving!! Some of my friends’ siblings are super nice and that always makes things easier and less awkward. Although my brother isn’t like that at all so I feel bad for any of my friends that have to interact with him :P I have a friend who’s a year younger than me (he’s 2 years younger) and they had 1 year together in band before she met and befriended me. Apparently he scares her :P I don’t really know how to react to that :P
You should do what you want!! Hopefully either way you’ll have a good experience :) and yeah, BlogClan time is always super fun!!
That’s really neat! You absolutely don’t have to decide now. I’m looking at colleges and a lot of people say you don’t really have to know until you finish your general studies, so that’s 2 years of college you don’t need to know. I also want to work in the TV/movies industry, wouldn’t it be really funny if we ended up working on something together? :P people do kinda expect that but it’s really dumb. Most jobs you don’t get any sort of trial run before you have to choose, so how would you know for sure?
Oof :P My friend like. 12 and her sister is like 9 I think :P But her sister is really nice and innocent but like I always get so awkward talking with anyone, especially little kids so it's so awkward ugh :P
My mom thinks it might be a good idea if I went to like a community college first, which I think might be good to start with before I'm thrown full force :P But then I still won't have any idea what I'm doing rip :P Seriously though if we both go the movie route we should definitely keep an eye out for each other :P
Oof same sometimes it feels like there’s a different set of unsaid social rules for kids??? But sometimes there isn’t?? It’s a little nerve-wracking. Usually I just try and talk to them like I’d talk to people my age bit that doesn’t always work
Yeah that’s definitely a plus!! You have a while before you have to make a choice so be open :P it’s okay to not know what you’re doing, i don’t think anyone does. I certainly don’t :P just do what’s best for you at that time. You might change a between now and then, so it doesn’t really help to worry rn. YOU could always look up colleges and stuff like that. We totally should! It would be really funny if we know we’re working on the same movie but not who each other is lol. It would be like one of those miraculous ladybug fanfics :P
I'm not allowed to look up stuff by myself rip :P Except we sorta know what each other look like from BlogFics and stuff(hair and eye color) so like... We could just go around saying BlogClan memes to people who fit the descriptions until we find each other :P
My mom’s the same way with computer restrictions but honestly it’s not like you’re looking up anything bad so idk why she’d be against it. You could always look it up with her? Idk it’s awkward though
I would just go around asking people if they’ve read Trailing Stars and then end up with a bunch of coworkers wondering what the heck Trailing Stars is :P
It’s a French cartoon that’s really good but also kinda horrible :P in the show these two classmates are also secretly superheroes and they’re crushing on their alternate identities but they don’t know it :P in fan fiction, when it’s a non-superhero AU a lot of time they’ll have a similar scenario where the two people know each other through alternate personas and sometimes try to find each other :P there are a lot of awkward shenanigans (tm)
Yeah we just have to ask before we look stuff up and then that would lead to awkward stuff :P
Oh jeez :P "Have you read Trailing Stars?" "..." "Never mind then" :P
Do they also just hav masks that cover their eyes??? :P In like, Henry Danger and Thundermans they always do that and you can clearly tell who it is with the mask on but nobody ever figures it out :P And I get it's so the kids can tell but still It's laughable :P I was so glad when they made Charlotte smart enough to figure it out :P
Ohhh man I’m so sorry I thought I already replied??? I was just thinking hey it’s been a while since Blue responded and it was me who wasn’t responded haha I’m so sorry
That makes sense but also I don’t think it would be that awkward since it’s nothing bad??? It’s still a little awkward though I feel you it’s totally up to you
I wonder how many people would end up looking up Trailing Stars and being like “??? this is a collaborative Warrior Cats Fanfiction from years ago your reading taste is... questionable” :P
oh absolutely!!! Marinette/ladybug literally has the EXACT SAME HAIRSTYLE but no one recognizes her! Chat Noir/Adrien gets a pass bc his hair and eyes are a little different but really they should be able to figure it out. I hope they make someone figure it out because the gags got old and ridiculous fast but knowing that show I doubt they will. The thing is it’s episodic and the episodes air in production order so they try to add plot but they can’t really and it sucks
Also HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY I typed it out in my original message but it never sent :(((
Hahah yeah I wonder if it’ll still be up and running then! I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t, but things change. It would be so funny if it is and someone comments “hey what is this I got asked if I read the fanfiction on this site at work????” or something omg but so awkward
Me too!! It would be weird though, would new kids keep coming to the blog? Would it end up as this multi-generational giant friend group? Or would people slowly stop coming and it would end up like a parent-aged friend group? The possibilities are wild :P
Me on instagram be like: *posts picture of cat* *likes picture of cat* *likes picture of cat* *likes picture of cat* *likes picture of bunny *likes picture of cat*
I mean, I know a lot of wonderful kids’ shows that do a great job with plot and changing the status quo. The weird way it airs and the fact that it’s episodic do get in the way, but at the end of the day it is really stupid. I’m not the target demographic though obviously :P
I honestly haven't seen "GOOSE" in a while :P I still literally have no clue why or where it began. :P Same as foos, and honestly all of the blogmemes :P
Yeah. I mean, I get it for like, shows for like, little little kids, but like Henry Danger and Thundermans are more directed towards olderish kids so like you don't need it to be dumbed down that much :P
Juni does honestly juni what other forbidden blogclan fun facts can you tell us
This is one of the extreme examples, but there was one episode where one of the antagonists whose whole gig is making up ridiculous lies that everyone believes lied to the class to ruin the protagonist’s life and steal her friends. The protagonist has been referred to before as the class’s “everyday Ladybug (the superhero)” and they obviously love and respect her but as soon as the new girl with crazy tales came around they all just turned on her??? And her best friend is a reporter who values getting real stories but she immediately didn’t believe her best friend because this random other girl bribed her with wild stories about ladybug :/ And like aside from that the class isn’t stupid??? It was just really dumb lol
Yeah it’s really annoying :/ miraculous ladybug does a lot of show not tell, where they’ll say “Chloe’s a better person!” “Alya is a good friend!” “Ladybug secretly loves Chat Noir!” but they don’t actually show a lot of it... that’s a big no no in writing
I know it sounds like I’m trashing the show it does have its good moments but it also has some seriously glaring flaws :P
Yeah, I get that :P It's super annoying :P Like, I was reading this one book recently, and there was a ship I really wanted to happen, but she never outright told us that it was actually happening and she ended the book without telling us whether it would happen. :P Then I went to her website and read that she tried to imply things a lot instead of just telling you and I was like, "Yeah. I know" :P
I actually quite liked that she hinted around at it a lot, because it wasn't an obvious ship and probably had many flaws but I shipped it anyways and she hinted at it enough that I think it was quite obvious in the end :P
It's called Incarceron! It's also got a sequel called Sapphique. Just two books, but it's really good! It's actually the first book series that I've read(on my own) that's like, the type of books I realize now that I like, if that makes sense :P
Sorry I remember replying to this??? Or at least reading it. Guess I didn’t :(
That definitely makes sense! It’s better than just telling the audience that romance is happening and not showing it at all. I’ve seen that done badly though, but I’m happy to hear it was done well!!
That’s neat!! I haven’t heard of it bot I’ll go look it up on Goodreads now :P I love those titles they have such an auditory aesthetic if that makes any sense :P Sapphique is so fun to say! It kind of makes sense? I feel like I get it but it could mean something else :P
It's really good! There are few cuss words, and a few times it mentions implications of stuff if that makes sense :P But it's soooooooooooo good :P So basically, all my life I've read books about fantasy and magic and stuff. And I've enjoyed those but I always felt there was some sort of other I guess "genre" that I needed to read. Then we read Maze Runner and I was like "THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR" and so I asked my mom if there were any books that had the same sort of feel and she got me Incarceron :P
Okay I don’t mind cussing and implications are usually okay. I’ll definitely give it a look!! I’m going to a bookstore tonight and it’s really expensive (I’m going to see someone talk not buy books :P) but if they have it I’ll give it a look!!
That makes sense! I really need to get around to reading the second Maze Runner book :P Maze Runner is definitely really good. Divergent and The Hunger Games have a very similar vibe if you’re still looking, and there are a lot of other books that are in the same genre that I know!
Yikes I really wish I got notifications for this outside of wiki bc I never come on the wiki except for this and I think about replying but then I just don’t aaaaa
I didn’t get a chance to look at the bookstore bc I went to see someone speak and then I had to get home and do homework (ew), but I’ll definitely keep an eye out! I’ll try to go to the library over thanksgiving break ;)
I’ve only read the first book so idk what that is :P I feel like it’s fine as a stand-alone if you’re interested. My brother has the second book and I’ve been meaning to read it for a while but I don’t have a lot of time :P
I think Red Queen and Renegades are other books that are sort of like that, but not exactly
Oof making another reply that'll probably be a bit awkward but yay that's what I do.
I just wanted to thank you for your reply to my second comment on the Hug Page. You didn't know if it would help but it actually did. I know you probably don't know a whole lot about the situation(no one does really) but it's really affected me and I don't know the fact that you sort of figured out what it is made me feel better that you like, I guess tried your best to know the situation and help it?? I don't know it just made me feel a lot better and I wanted to thank you even though it was such a small thing :P
I'm going to end the awkwardess here before I do something even more stupid :P
hi ah gosh i can't sign in anymore for some reason?? i forgot my password a while ago but it was saved on my phone but now it's not anymore??? anyway i was trying to fix it but i've been busy. Honestly I'm really sorry, I left you hanging for too long :( but I'm just gonna leave this tab open for now to remind myself when I'm not signed in and i probably won't be for a while just so you know
it is now thanksgiving break, so I'm gonna go to the library! I'll have to fit it in with my grandparents' visit, but they can probably come and we can make it a whole thing :P
it DOES :/ I'm supposed to be doing an essay rn but I have no idea what to write. It's a personal essay, but idk how to write a personal essay in academic format. Also it's about your culture and my culture isn't really interesting haha
hahahaha that's always fun! I think I've already been somewhat spoiled? I remember reading about a major death but I forgot who it is :P maybe newt? but the thing is it's been so long since I read the first book that what I've heard about the next books isn't fresh in my mind anymore :P
ahhhh no problem I'm so glad it resonated with you!! This sounds cheesy but that sort of reaction is honestly one of the only reasons why I go on the hug page. Sometimes it's emotionally draining to look at other people's problems and even more so to try and think of solutions (especially when I have my own crap to deal with) so I don't always do it. I'm also not always good at relating to ppl and understanding exactly how they're feeling so that's really really awesome. I'm so so happy it made you feel better!!! You can always talk to me anytime, and I will do my best to get back to you a lot faster in the future :)
ah and sorry this is wavey if you didn't already know :P
also please don't worry about making things more awkward I have social anxiety so whenever someone doesn't reply right away I always get super worried (which makes me feel even worse about not replying to you right away I wouldn't wish that on anyone much less my good friend) so idk if you feel the same way sorry if i misinterpreted this but if you do that's not how it is! also you definitely didn't make things awkward, that was really sweet and I'm so so glad I could help <3
AHHHH I DIDN'T GET NOTIFIED FOR THIS(probably because it wasn't from your actual account)
Culture... I'd have no clue what to write rip :P
Heheheheheheheeheheheheheheheehe just read it :P
Yeah, I definitely get what you mean! Most of the time even if someone just replies to my post on there, it makes me feel 10x better. And the fact that you like, sort of knew what was going on and had something to say about it just really made me feel better.
Ah no worries <3 I know you're busy. The first few days I was like worried but then I realized that you weren't commenting on the Blog either and I was like "So it's not me. She must be busy." And then I forgot about it :P
That's ok!! I'm sorry for not getting back to you until now, I saw this about a week ago but I got sick and I'm right in the middle of finals rn :( should be working on a French presentation rn, but I can't focus. but it's not just you i haven't been on the blog either I'm excited to get back to it! I feel bad for ghosting you guys haha
tbh I was at a loss too! I wrote about Judaism and marching band :P they're both culture but not exactly what you'd think of when you think of culture :P I got it back the other day and I think my teacher liked it! I was a little self-depricating and she drew little smiley faces over those parts and I'm not really sure what that means :P
I'm so glad!!! Validation is so meaningful but it's so cool to go beyond validation. That doesn't happen very often. that kind of thing happens to me a lot too so I'm so happy to pass the torch & help you
Ok phew! Finals are almost over, so I'll probably be around a lot more over winter break. Or I might be watching nonstop movies :P but I'll probably be here. I'm glad you weren't stressing over it though that's probably what I would've done :P
Hi Wavey! I was wondering if I could help with the BlogClan Newsletter - I was thinking of maybe drawing a magazine style cover for it each month? You know, like the ones that kinda say what the issue contains and stuff :P I would love to help!
Psssst. Haven't been on here since June. oooof. I may be back for good, but it is going to take some time lol.. Last June I said I was making a probable comeback, but now is a more definte comeback. I am more determined this time around then back in June, so we shall see how things end up.
HEY!!!!!!! GUESSS WHO"S BAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'VE MISSED YOU!!!!! Also sorry for not telling you or anyone I was leaving. I forgot to be on here for a few days then it turned into a few weeks, then a few months. :/. Sorry. I may be making a comeback on her or maybe not, we'll see.
