We’re going to ignore the fact that I’ve been MIA for around seven months and move right along to the main topic of this post: geeky musical analysis and personal reflection. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but sometimes you just get a little burst of motivation, you know?
Legally Blonde: The Musical. What a classic. You may have seen the romance/comedy movie starring Reese Witherspoon, but if I’m being honest nothing can really compare to the fluffy, energetic musical. It features such masterpieces as Omigod You Guys, Chip On My Shoulder, and Take It Like A Man, which is the potentially the best makeover song I’ve ever heard.
Before I over-sell this musical and set your expectations way too high, let me give a bit of background.
Why hello there! Haven’t seen you guys in a while!
This last year has been a lot. New school, new house, terrifying pandemic- writing blog posts has been one of the last things on my mind. Motivation for pretty much anything has been hard to come by.
But that all changes in this exciting revival of Evelyn Posts Stuff! More posts are coming this school year. Probably. I aim to post at least once a month, but that’s probably a little ambitious considering my current levels of inspiration.
I’ve got some ideas and hopefully with the arrival of Grade 10 I will also have some motivation for things that are not just lying in bed and watching weird minecraft videos.
Let me preface this by saying that my sister requested this post. This was not my idea. I do not take responsibility for any stress or trauma caused by the content of this post.
As you may already know, Amy is my sister. She is pretty cool I guess. I bit weird, but still cool.
Amy and I are relatively close. We do bicker occasionally about stupid stuff, but other than that we generally like each other. We are quite different though.
Also, I am very proud of the Featured Image I created for this post. I hope you like it. It made me laugh.
Recently, I did and online summer camp with my cousin, Isabella (Izzy). We learned all about Stop-Motion Animation. It was a lot of fun!
A bit of backstory: Izzy, my sister Amy and I very much enjoy making movies together. We have made such classics as The Super Sisters, Yummy Cookie, Shopping Spree, and The Punk Princess, among others. When this camp came to our attention we jumped at the opportunity. Unfortunately, Amy had another engagement and was unable to participate, so it ended up just being Izzy and me.
It’s been a while since I’ve written on this blog. I’m working on a completely unrelated post at the moment, but I felt the need to address the changes that will be happening. And also apologize for the entirety of the last term.
I think this will be a bit of a shorter post, but you never know. I could end up my longest one yet. I probably should structure my posts better. Oh well.
Once upon a time there was a comparatively small girl named Evelyn. Evelyn was shy, anxious, and a bit naive. Flash forward a year, and here she is now. Still shy. Still anxious. But very much more enlightened.
Time for tPOLs!
It’s the end of the year, and the time has come for PLP to present us with our final acronym. (Actually, we are presenting the acronym to PLP. You know what, whatever.)
Another late post. Great. Evelyn+Homework=Late Blog Posts. Oh well.
Week 7 of the Student Blogging Challenge is all about emojis! Fun! I wrote another emojis post last year, too.
I can’t believe we are on week 7 already. Well, technically we’re on week 8. I’m just late, as usual.
Ok, I’m going to stop talking about that now.
Emojis are fun. I use them all the time when I’m texting my friends, my grandma, and even writing blog posts! Especially my grandma. She loves heart emojis. Hi Nana! ❤️😍
That, however, is irrelevant.
Welcome to this post about school! That is the subject of the Student Blogging Challenge Week 6. School is fun! Let’s get into the post.
What was that intro. Yikes.
I go to high school. It is a pretty small school, with only about 500 students. I am in a program called PLP.
I don’t know what my problem is. I can’t write anything remotely interesting today. My brain has been fried by all the storyboards I have to make for homework. Oh dear. I’m a mess.
Let’s try again. How about we talk about PLP. What is that, anyways?
This post is late. I apologize.
The earth is very important. We live here. We get our food and water here. We play and work and talk and walk here. We are born here and we die here.
This all may seem quite obvious, but if so, why are we killing it? Why are we spewing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere? Why are we dumping plastic into the ocean? Why are we cutting down entire forests? And why does this keep happening, even through all the warnings from scientists and climate activists around the world?
Week Four of the Student Blogging Challenge is upon us, and the theme is Free Choice! This is very exciting, but also rather daunting. I have a hard time thinking up what to write about.
Last time I wrote about my dog, Barley. If you read this blog a lot, then I’m sure you are very familiar with Barley and have seen many random photos of him. You can scroll to the very bottom of this page to see one now.
That is not relevant. Right now I’m just stalling while I try to think of an interesting topic. I’m kind of unprofessional that way.
