But the History Day competition worked out well! Remember how much I was complaining about History Day and how my laptop crashed and blah blah blah? Weeeell, I got first in my room at regionals! So exciting!!! That means that I get to go on to state with my documentary and compete for a chance to go to Washington DC for nationals. This is exciting, I never win stuff like this.

Turtles are awesome.
Went to the Japanese tea garden on Sunday, but I haven't had time to get on the home computer until today. I really wish my laptop would let me upload pictures because that would be so much easier, but it's stupid and won't.
I really like the tea garden, it's on the side of a really busy road so you can hear all the cars and planes when you're in it, but it's so pretty. My mom and I expected the cherry blossoms to be in bloom since they are everywhere else, but they're not. Dang. I guess that just means that we have to go again! :D

HOLY CRAP! This took me forever to edit on photoshop. I changed the effect to look like a vintage lomo and then put the two pictures side by side. I really don't like photoshop, but I have nothing better to do.
Not true, actually. I should be doing homework.
But anyways, we had a booster auction tonight for school and I was selling raffle tickets. The theme was 50's, hence the totally awesome dress and shoes. The dress is my friends, shoes are mine. And btw, that thing in my hand is a star, sorry if you couldn't tell.
My brother and I are so cool.
We had dinner with the fam at a sushi restaurant and we noticed that we could see our reflections in the side of the belt with sushi on it, so of course we had to take a picture. It actually could've been kind of cool if I had my real camera with me.

I'm sick of wearing you. Go away.
Actually, no, I like these shoes.
Bleh, finally all caught up with uploading my pictures. I'm realizing that photography is kind of like a sport, if you take a break from it then when you come back, you're out of shape. It's kinda hard for me to take a technically and visually appealing picture right now. I blame laziness.
On the way back from Idaho :)
We wrote a song on the bus about Idaho and what an awesome time we had there. The guy that I was sitting across from (our guitar player who came up with the idea for a song) had been sleeping, and then he woke up and started drawing on my hand. After a while he was like "I ran out of things to draw..." and went back to sleep. Personally, I like it. I'd totally want to get an actual tattoo of this.
Well this pretty much sums up my day.
Hanging out in a mall for lunch while we were all wearing our concert clothes. We wandered into a Payless Shoes store and my friend decided to be a secret agent, complete with his suit, sunglasses, and a white pleather purse.
This is so hot my eyeballs are burning.
And so begins the long chain of crappy pictures.
My story behind why they're so bad: I took a trip to Idaho with the jazz band. Idaho, that's bad enough, but with the jazz band? I had no time to take any pictures, and I was ALWAYS wearing pants and jackets without pockets on the trip so I couldn't take my camera anywhere. Most of these pictures are gonna be from my phone because I really didn't have time to do anything else.
Was this the right picture for the day? Ugh, I don't know, it was too long ago.
Frick, I have so much catching up to do. I haven't uploaded any pictures in forever, but I have been taking a picture every day! Argh, why did I wait so long to update?! Now I have to go through and figure out which pictures are from which day, but I'm probably NOT gonna do that. So for the next few entries, the pictures might not be on the right day, but I did take a picture every day.
