Playing: Come Dancing-The Kinks
Ok, so I haven't been blogging as actively as I would like because Biology is taking up much of my time. We're dissecting a fetal pig in class and we have to do these Human Trivia Questions for homework. There are over 150 questions and I don't know when the due date is, so I'm going to do 10 questions a day. Yay for not procrastinating! Also, my Geometry teacher is so funny! In class he was teaching us Euler's theorem and then he pointed at a drawing of the mathematician and said, "He's one of those dead white guys on my wall over there!"
This weekend was pretty good, though. On Saturday, I celebrated my very good friend's Confirmation. My family went to their house and celebrated with his extended family. We had a great time and it gave me a great idea of what I should expect next year, when I'm confirmed. Last night, my brother watched Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Adventures with me. We got through 6 episodes. How mature are we? VERY MATURE! We did is more because I watched it, when I was little. It's so cute and guess what? It's from the 80's!
Winchester Mystery House in San Jose from almost a month ago. I visited it before I preformed for History Day. (The way I talk about History Day, you'd think it was all I do in my free time.) When you walk in, you're greeted by cheery pastel colors and calliope music.
We're allowed to take photos from the outside, so look at how amazing this house is! It was an expanding mass, kind of like our universe! The architecture is quite beautiful, really, and you all know how much I love looking at pretty buildings...
If you're not into the creepier side of the Winchester Mystery House, I suggest spending your time outside, exploring the gardens. The gardens are stunning and you can look at all the pretty stained glass from the outside. It was such a nice distraction from the competition, but it was extremely expensive. It costs $30 a person! There are 3 tours, so there are cheaper options. Also, be warned, you aren't allowed to bring food or drinks inside and the food there is really expensive! It's really rather lovely. It's nice to imagine what it would've been like, when Mrs. Winchester was alive.
Have you gone through Confirmation or has anyone you've known gone through it?
