We're going to audition to be a part of High School Musical 4. And, boy, am I excited. And nervous. And really happy. Okay, I'm have a lot of feelings towards this, but hey, I'm gonna give it my best go and I'm going to love EVERY MINUTE.
And if you didn't know that they're doing auditions, you should go do it (btw, you need to be around 14 - 17, have the Disney Applause app, find a song that fits your vocal chords--only do a verse and the chorus--, and practice the script. More info about auditioning here). I've always wanted to be a part of Disney, it would amazing if Charisma and I were part of the cast. :3
School's going really good. I've got a A's in everything but science (I've got a low B which I need to start getting a high B.... because bad things are going to happen if I don't). I'm trying to get done with school around May 18th, which, if I do, would be GREAT. The only thing I'm having trouble with is my Geography assignment. I have to plan a dream vacation. Sounds easy, right? Well, I still think it's kind-of easy, but I've been hitting some bumps. I've got to plan this vacation down to the slightest detail and that's going to be really hard (mean finding pictures of certain places, I have to record the weather, the average precipitation, etc.). And my maximum budget is 10,000 dollars and the minimum I have to spend is 8,000 (keep in mind I can't go over budget, 5% can be spent for gifts/souvenirs and 10% can be used for food, while the rest must be used for hotel, airline tickets, car rental, etc.). You get the idea.
I'm still having my major writings block (wanting to write something, but avoids writing at all times, you can read my small post at My Writing Journey). Although, early this week I was able to write a small bit for a new story. That made me really happy. I'm actually really surprised that I wanted to write this blog post, because I've been wanting to do it for a long time now.
The site's that I'm using (apart from the first Learning Japanese):
- This is an online Japanese dictionary (which I tend to go to often) and I love it. It looks slick, clean (meaning that it doesn't look like your gonna get a virus and you won't) and has absolutely everything.
- Rikaikun/Rikaichan (depending on what browser you use. -kun is for Chrome and -chan is for Firefox)
- THIS IS THE BEST INVENTION EVER. This is an add-on for Chrome or Firefox (which I literally just stated...) and, what it does, is when you roll over any kanji, hiragana or katakana (if the hiragana and katakana are NOT in a sentence, I don't think it'll pop up anything), and it'll tell you the pronunciation and the definition.
- The Japanese Page
- Basically just like every other Japanese learning site. Has some good resources, but it's a bit cluttered (which, to me, always looks like it's going to have a virus), but it's not that bad. I've gone to the site several times and I haven't got a warning.
- Japanese Level Up (Jalup)
- This website tries to make learning Japanese into some role-playing game and it looks like a really good way to learn Japanese but I like more interactive methods of study... And when I really want to learn something, I don't have a lot of patience. Cause, I want to learn now.
- Japanese Lentil
- I absolutely love this place. I'm working on Words for Kanji - Top 25 with this site and it is so helpful. Repetition is truly your best friend when learning a new language, so this site is quite helpful. Once I'm finished (no one is ever truly 'finished') with learning the kanji, I'm going to try and give my hand a go at katakana.
