My Dear Stalkers,

Today was the day of the drama competition. I was in an ensemble scene and I had a monologue. For our ensemble scene we did really really well. We made it to state! Yesss!! After that we all went to lunch and then practiced our scenes. You would not even believe how scared I was. That's why it so great to have my friends there. I was almost going to tell Cam that I didn't want to do it because I was so scared. Camille and Cody were really awesome and put up with me and told me that I can do it. I went into that room and preformed my mono as if I did it a million times in front of people. between you and me; every time I preformed it I did it a little different. But I acted like thats exactly how it was written. It worked. I was qualified for state but didn't get in. Oh well better luck next year. I am excited. Camille's duo scene made it though! I am so proud of her! and Cody's duo scene made it runner up. It's so great! I can go watch theirs. The bus ride home was really fun as well. I was having a huge debate with the guys. what about? about how I think that guys are more complicated than girls are. Don't think so? why? I think I have a pretty good argument, but I guess that's my opinion. Anyway, I must bid you Adieu.

Holy Festival of Colors Batman!!

My Dear Stalkers,

Yesterday was the Krishna celebration. Holi or Festival of Colors. It is where they celebrate a new year or a change. I honestly had no idea what to expect. I went with my friend Tippe, her boyfriend, and her roommates. (they are all in college) . Anyway, when we got there we were covered in colored chalk. People that we didn't know would throw it on us and laugh. It was all in good fun though. There was lots of dancing and crowd surfing... whats that? did I go crowd surfing? psshhh... sorta... I didn't mean to though! These guys thought it would be funny to just pick me up and pass me around. I got dropped. On my shoulders, ouch. But my friend got a picture of it. But crazy things happen when your around 15,000 people. It indeed was a magical adventure, It gives insight to other religions. Today I decided to sit down with a shoe box and write down things I want to remember, I am putting the shoe box in my closet and I'm going to keep adding to it over the years. A long time from now when I am in a really good place I am going to open it up and figure out the questions or concerns I had.... Does that sound like a good idea? Or is it kinda cheesy? Oh well. . .

An almost non-forgetable Friday...

My Dear Stalkers,

Have you ever met someone that has a similar thought process as you? The same ideas as you without discussing them beforehand? Well, I guess stuff like that happens right? Probably not. So this is my explanation to those previous questions. Today every Socratic Seminar class had to start writing their Sci-fi story. I decided to write mine about the future. In this future there is no agency and so a kid named Brian decides that he wants to be able to have agency. That’s all I got so far. So anyway drawing it back to the questions at the beginning. My friend Cody is not in my class, he is in the period after me. He asked after school what I was writing about, I told him and turns out we have the same theme; agency. It’s just crazy. Who knows how things like that happen. I guess great minds think alike. Anyway…

The other day remember how I explained that my choir had a good chance of making it to state? Yeah well… I was so right! We made it!! We were all super excited! We totally deserved it, we worked hard and sounded awesome. We got 1’s from both of the judges (one is the best you can get and 3 is the worst). But enough about me tell me about yourself..

You’re loving Stalkey,

My doggy >


My Dear Stalkers,

Today (Wednesday the 24th) I had my choir competition! yay! But, they lied. The drive was only about an hour, not 2! Anyway, we were the first school to go I was nervous as heck! as well as everyone else I'm sure, but hey this is my story. . . (5 hours later, no joke) So I had an ADD moment for a while. I just want to interrupt my awesomely amazing story to thank my 2 awesome friends, Camille and Cody. They are making my sophomore year all worth everything! You guys ROCK! Okay... anyway back to my choir competition... So, we walked on stage and sang as awesome as we could! We.. sounded... really... really... great!! Cam (teacher) said that if we don't make it to state then he would be seriously surprised. SCORE! So we went and watched the orchestra play in their region competition after that. They were also amazing! They made it to state! All in all it was a really awesome but tiring day... We got back to school and I performed my monologue for Camille, Abby, and Mandy. I am so nervous but I guess ill have to get over that one. I know, I know, your thinking "Ally nervous? pssh no way." and now your thinking "What? how does she know what I'm thinking?!?!". I am that awesome, I know exactly what your thinking. Anyway to answer your first thought, yes, I am nervous, its just scary okay? I don't wanna talk about it. Geez you would think I was just writing for everyone to see. Anyway... That's my exciting day. . . Lets see what tomorrow holds shall we?

Wish Me Luck!

My Dear Stalkers,

I am having kind of a stressful week.The term ends on Thursday, Fun stuff. What does that mean? It means grades come out. No, I am not worried, I tried my best and that's what counts (to me anyway). Tomorrow will be the most stressful I think. No, I don't have a final. No I don't have to give a presentation. No, I don't have a paper due. Okay stop guessing your bad at it. I have a choir competition. Almost all day. We are going to be gone from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM. so, I miss more than half of school. But I think we can do a good job. After region is state. Then we own. Yes I have it all planned out. It's GOING to happen, whether the judges agree or not. Lets hope they do or it will get tricky, you know with all of the inexperienced people. They can't possibly learn all of my ninja talents in one day! . . . Anyway, regardless we will do great! Our Choir is sounding really great! I'm almost sure we will go far.

Your loving Stalky,

This is madness! MARCH madness!

My Dear Stalkers,

Oh my goodness! Have you ever seen people so competitive over a game? Well, it's March, so therefore the NCAA basketball thingy is on. I watched some the other night, didn't think I'd get into it that much. But guess who was playing? New Mexico State VS. Michigan State... who did I root for you ask? the losing
team... New Mexico State... 70-67. *sigh* but you are probably thinking to yourself "Ally why are you rooting for New Mexico? You have only lived in Utah and Hawaii, right?" WRONG! you see my fellow followers, I was adopted, and only a short time ago I found out that my birth father graduated from New Mexico, and I was born there. Crazy huh? So naturally I am going to root for them... anyway, So again today (3.20.2010) I got sucked into watching basketball... BYU VS. Kansas... again the team I rooted for lost... 72-84.. wow. Why did I root for BYU you ask? wow, you ask a lot of questions... It is because that is the school I wish to attend 2 years from now.
That was not the only thing I did today. I'm not that lazy! So today I woke up went to ACT prep from 9:00AM-11:00AM and from 11 till 2:15 I had play practice. It was loads of fun. I actually am really enjoying ACT prep, mostly because I have a couple of friends in there: Cody, and Strom. Although we did do math today friends make it all the more enjoyable. Drama practice was also extremely fun. Camille my other friend is in the play with me. so much fun... again with the questions? If you must know, the play is called "Check Please". Its really funny. It's like two different casts put together. There is a guy and a girl, they never interact until the end. They are both at 2 different tables and keep switching perspectives back and forth. Each on horrible blind dates. oh my goodness you must look it up!My part is a girl named Pearl. She is a kleptomaniac (someone who steals everything). I am on a blind date with Austin and stealing stuff the whole time.

Wait. I guess before we start you should get to know me a little better. So here are things about me...

I started this blog because my friend Camille told me to. No, I don't give in to peer pressure if your asking. I am just up for anything new and exciting. My favorite color is blue,(HIGHLY important) I love reading, listening to music, hanging out with friends, and photography. I'm sure that there are lots more things that I enjoy bout I cant think of any at the moment... So here are some things I dislike... people touching me with their feet,(oh my gosh if you do that I will go ninja jedi on you) lame music, and People that judge.

Okay now that you know a tad bit about me lets start our adventure shall we?
