Perks of Being a Wallflower

So, over the weekend, I went to see “Perks of Being a Wallflower” at the Rave. OH. MY. GOODNESS. I cannot even describe how much I loved it. Every time I see a quote from it, I want to cry though. It was so heartbreaking and then bittersweet. So, to sign off….

“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”

I’M BACK!

I am back, everybody! Mrs. Vaughn is thinking about starting a blog for my Pre-AP English 9 class, so I will be helping her set that up! On the side, I have a fractured bone in my hand, so this is very hard for me to type! I’ll try to post more later!

Storms and Power Outages Across the States Of Alabama and Tennessee

Dear Readers,

(wow. so formal)

 I’m sure that, by now, all of my classmates are aware of the major power outages and devastation across the lower US. On Wednesday, April, 27, 2011, Alabama set many new records for number of tornadoes, fatalaties, and devastation as well as many others. My house as well as many others are out of power and the mayor himself said, “Get out of town if you can.” Be careful! This is all terrible and school might not be in session until Wednesday at the earliest. :O This is a good time to read a book by candlelight. 🙂 We now get to see how everyone used to live and how much we rely on power. So, to everyone, remember our dusk to dawn curfew (bleck) and stay safe.

Happy May!!!!

Pi Day (3/14) Monday, March 14, 2011

Okay, so, next Monday is Pi day because the date is 3-14-2011 as in 3.14 :). For Ms. Miskelly, we have to make a post with an interesting fact about Pi. Here is my fact:

In the Palais de la Decouverte in Paris, there is a circular gallery dedicated to Pi. in 1937, it’s cupola (a small, dome-like structure on top of a building) was decorated with William Shank’s famous (infamous) 707 digits of Pi. 10 years later, the builders, along with the rest of the world, discovered that only 527 of them were correct.

Poor Shank 🙂

 I would hate to be him at that moment. Oh dear. 🙂

Well, happy Pi day!!

love, cailet (:

P.S. for a possible slice of pie, name the first 20 digits of Pi.

“Pies are round, not square!!”
