My Time at Back Bay

My time at Back Bay high school will truly be memorable. I had both good and bad times at this school, but all in all the good out weighs the bad. When I first came to this school it kind of sucked because, In Irvine (My home home school) we had a continuation school, Creekside, that us high schoolers affectionately referred to as Crackside. we had all heard the horrid rumors that came from that school, so obviously I was nervous about Back Bay. However, the first few staff members I met started easing my fear for they were nothing but nice and helpful, when they handed me my schedule and told me where my class was located. My first period ended up being with Mr. Kovac, who further assured me that the teachers here were working with the kids rather than against them or, like some, not working at all. I also met one of my good friends in that class, Kayla weeks! Unfortunately she went home at lunch so I was left alone, and I would just listen to music. Even with being alone at lunch, after the first day I knew this was a good school.

Of corse, being here since the first day of last year, Lil' Kayla was not the only friend I made! After a while Tonia transferred into my science class and we bonded over our common interest in books, namely Harry Potter. Then Kahla transferred in a while after Tonia. It seems that most of my new friends have come in this year. and though some have left and we don't talk to them much anymore, I know I have had some great times with them while they were here.

When most students come to Back Bay one can only assume that their main goal is to get back to their home school, I was no different. From the time I was told I had to leave Irvine high my only goal was getting back, and until the this year I was thoroughly convinced I would be graduating from there. However, even if I did meet all the other requirements (having a way to get to the school and back, living in Irvine, etc.) I wouldn't switch back. This school was one of the best things to happen in my high school life. I truly feel this school is the best fit for me, and anyone lucky enough to go here should realize they have been given a gift, and use it wisely.

Even with all that being said, I am not sad to be leaving. I am, instead,  happy to have had the chance to be a part of a school that I feel actually makes a difference, rather than a cold, face-less, "normal" high school. Though I was only here for two years I know I will speak fondly of my high school for years to come!

My Summer 2011

We are down to eight school days now, the summer is getting ready to leap into full swing. Teenagers will flood the streets no matter where you go. So I should be thinking about fun summer plans with friends and long nights by the ocean and the bonfire pits, however, that's not what I'm thinking about. This summer is for more serious endeavors.

My main goal for this summer is to, finally, get my drivers license. I have had my permit since October. Me and cars do not mix very well though, so I am hoping to put aside a large chunk of time dedicated to nothing but driving each day. So, look out world, I'm going to be mobile!

Another thing I will be concentrating on this summer is finding a job. I'm not sure if it will be seasonal or something a bit more secure, but as long as I get a job and start saving up money for the coming fall, I don't care. Between my job and getting my license, you may ask "but how will you ever have time for any fun?!" but never fear I always have the nightlife and my disneyland pass.

But seriously, I assume I will be going to Disneyland quite often this summer. And because I live on Balboa Island I can go out and walk around at anytime of night with my friends. and go swimming anytime  during the day. I am also hoping a few road trips will be thrown in here and there. My main hope is that this summer is one I can remember as special.

Get Him to the Greek review


In the movie, Get Him to the Greek, The beautiful combination of Russell Brand (Aldous Snow) and Jonah Hill (Aaron Green) will leave you laughing for days! Aldous Snow being a cocky, strung out rock star and Aaron Green, just an average fan of Aldous, makes for an unbelievably funny story; Aldous Snow, once the biggest rock star around, writes a horrid song that, more or less, ruins his career. Ten years later, Aaron Green gets the opportunity of a life time, go to London and pick up Aldous Snow and get him to his comeback show at the Greek theater in L.A. However, with Aldous being such a party animal things do not go over as smoothly as planned. Now what you might not expect from a movie mainly about crazy parties and the life of a rock star is that it actually has some heart, it may be hidden under all the witty, absurd humor and the star studded cast but it is there. The movie is also filled with original plots, jokes, and songs that will be stuck in your head for quite some time. Originality is not something many movies have today, which just adds to the overall success of this film. Get Him to the Greek is defiantly a movie I would recommend everyone ( 17 or older) to go see!
