So... [Sunday,

@ 8:41PM]

I have made a bit of an absence, eh?
My excuse as of this moment is that I'm sharpening my blogging skills. I want it to be good when I post so I am trying to become better at it. Practicing meaningless blogs on myspace.

Yeah, yeah, that's it. ;D

I promise I'll be back off and on.
School's almost over and I'll have way more time over the summer.

Oh yeah, I am going to see Hellogoodbye live this Saturday!
Theeeeennnnn... in July, I am seeing Anthony Rapp live! Shut up, I am too. :O

According to G4 on tv, it was just a rumor about Emma Watson leaving HP. She isn't, as of my knowlege now. She will be coming back in the last movies.

Yay!

Bad news for HP fans.
If my sources are correct, Emma Watson is plotting to murder Harry Potter. Not literally, but it sounds worse when I say it like that.

So here's the low down. Emma Watson turned down the contract to appear as Hermione Granger in the last two Harry Potter movies.

I really don't want this to be true. But, I don't think it's nice if this website is lying to me.
So, here are my sources: 

-> Hollywood.com -  Watson Turns Down Contract For Final Two 'Potter' Films
-> Newsoftheworld.co.uk - I Quittich!

If you find any other explanations, it'd be great if you could send me the url's you find.

Also, if this is true, best wishes to Emma Watson.

On the good side though, I read that Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint are a go on the last two films.

Woooooahoho.
Busy/yucky week-ish.

We took the ACT and some Michigan Standardized test, called the MME (Michigan Merit Exam).
I'm so sick of filling in bubbles. Yikes. The first night after we took the ACT (day 1 of 3), I'm pretty sure I had a nightmare about it. Filling in the bubbles, sitting in the chair for endless hours, and so forth. On the plus side though, we got out of school early, us Juniors, I mean. The first day we got out around 1 pm. Which brings me to my next point:

Car got stuck in snow stuck in drive way.
Mom got it out.
Car, stuck in drive way again.
This time, not so easy.
Mom try to drive out.
Doesn't work.
It's cold outside.
Tries to shovel it out.
Doesn't work.
Still very cold.
Gets a truck.
Pulls it out.
Yay!
Tries to pull it out further.
Oops.
Hits the car.
Back left side is dead.
Kourtney can't drive to school with broken taillight.
Uh oh.

So then I had to drive this yucky car for this past week, but at least I had a car. This car was extremely loud though. And hard to drive. When I finally got my car back yesterday, it was beautiful. My car was like heaven to drive. I missed it so. So much, I could have wrote a poem the moment I set my eyes on it.

Nextly, I'd like to talk about the Blood drive.
Did I mention I gave blood? I was nervous beyond nervous but I did it. *thumbs up* I felt very very very sick afterwards, but I probably should have eaten more than poptarts, french fries, and a cookie before hand, eh?

Hmm. That's enough update for now.
Later days.

Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show!! [Sunday,

[ mood | El Oh El! ]

YouTube's a fun place, I tell ya.
I'm a member. I don't post much there (I have one video so far). But who ever thought up YouTube had a pretty good idea, I think.

Anyway, this brings me to my one and only point.
I found this video today. It's among those that aren't for everyone, probably. It's a video for those who just want to laugh at stupid things. Hmm. I may not be explaining this too well. Well, watch it anyway. But don't blame me for making you do it. Because I didn't. It made me laugh out loud though and I wanted to pass the glee onto you! :D Hip hip hooray!



If you wanna see a few other pointless videos that I found, head on over to my profile:
http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=LastYearsRent
There are also a bunch of Rent and Avenue Q videos that I saved there. Plus my one video, which is like a rent slideshow. Yay!

Peace out.

"This is a party without the people. This is a show without the sound." [Wednesday,

[ mood | cold ]

I think there's something wrong with me, but I don't quite know what it is.
Uhh, I hate school... but that can't be it, can it? Doesn't the majority dislike the learning area? Maybe. I just know that I dislike it. I wonder why, because, I mean, I get good grades. Hmm.
Anyway, I just felt like crying earlier today. And I got real irritated right before it. My mom thought so, hence why she asked "Something wrong?". Maybe it's just because I'm a bratty girl. Hmm.

On a funner subject, I'm watching Extras. Ever seen it? It's on HBO and British people are on it. Yay! :D Ricky Gervais is in it. He's this British funny guy. Hoopah!

*takes deep breath in*

I guess I don't have much else to say. I'll hopefully get on tomorrow and catch up on posts, my friend page, and shtuff.

Oh, today is the one year since Rent came out on DVD. That's when I first saw it. Since then, I've been to the Broadway play. Hooray!

Drop me a line, maybe. And I'll drop you a line.

Farewell for now,

February 19th, 2007
@ 7:30PM]
[ mood | tired ]

In the next couple days I shall be posting several batches of icons, I do believe.
I made a bunch over the past week which include Ewan McGregor movies, Rent, The Office, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and maybe a few more topics of thy interest. They range in style. I enjoyed making them.
So, today, I decided to post a few. So here ya go.

Tasty teaser:

- young Obi-Wan from Star Wars (2)
- Down With Love (8)
- a flowery icon from Big Fish (1)

1. Please, to the max, credit me for my icons.I adore several of them and I would hate for them to go to a bad adoptive family who doesn't want to tell it who its real mommy is. Just put [info]gc4eva_89 in your userpic section. It's that simple!
2. Maybe leave a comment if you take any, please. I like to know which of my creations people think are yummy.

"C'mon Lois hit me. Beat the crap out of me." [Sunday,
February 11th, 2007
@ 8:50PM]
[ mood | tired ]

I'm not so hot at this updating thing, I can see.
I really like updating, but I just can't think of objects of awesomeness to talk about to make this a superb blog.
I'll continue though, making pointless posts, and repeating several things over and over again.
It'll be fun.

First note of business, I made some icons these past few days. It was a good way to get my mind off of stupid things for a little bit. I'm going to post them soon. I made a bunch of Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge, Down With Love, and Big Fish), The Office, some Christian Bale, and some Rent. Plus a few other random things. If there's any other subject of lust, adoration, or amusement you'd like to see in 100x100 icons, just let me know and I'll have some fun with it. ;)

On another note, it's nearing Valentine's Day. Not that it really means anything to me. I like the heart shape candy though. :D I saw some weird ones yesterday. They said stuff like "GO HOME" and one said "AWE SOME" which I figured out that it was awesome, but since it was on two lines, I thought it meant awe someone... err something.

On a less happier key, all day today, I've felt that people don't want to listen. This didn't make me feel a state of importance, that's for sure. My mom is the only one that really listens in my family. I hate that some people don't even pretend to care. Some people don't look when I talk, while other people just repeat the same thing over and over, pretending they heard, but when asked about the subject, they are clueless. I'm not trying to sound like a divine figure that everyone must care about. I just want to feel a slight sense of importance.

Let's talk about something fun now. I saw Epic Movie last night. I went in with low expectations, and I laughed my butt off throughout the whole film. I would love to see it again. There were so many references to things in popular culture. Like MTV, and such, Paris Hilton, Borat, K-Fed, and fun movies! Yay! If you saw it and wanna talk about it (hehe) just leave a comment.

Well, over and out.

I Can't Do This All On My Own. No I'm No, I'm No Superman. [Tuesday,
January 30th, 2007
@ 11:03AM]
[ mood | sick ]

Uggggh.
I've stayed home sick Friday, Monday and today.
I'm sort of scared to find out what I missed at school. I'm gunna be a tad behind, I bet. I'm missing our first read-through of our play in drama. I'm an extra, so I'm probably not missing much. I don't know what we're doing in other classes though. I can't remember what we were learning in Algebra 2... or French. I probably missed a bit there. In Web Design, though, I bet I could catch up sort of quick. We sort of go by our own pace, but we do have due dates and stuff, but we read through the book ourselves and stuff.

I have pictures of my Moulin Rouge that I made out of graham crackers and frosting for French class. I'm not on my compy, so I'll try to post those soon.

What else could I type now that's worth posting?

Uhh....

Scrubs is on next. Yeah, I like Scrubs.

Oh, I saw Little Miss Sunshine the other day. I liked it. The lessons that I got out of it was that family is important and good things don't always happen... that's life. 

Well, I'll stop ranting now and post more when I something more interesting to say. Goodness. (Or just when I get bored or something.)

Until next time,
Kourtney

Drama in drama! Plus, Bonus rantings about school. & Guess what we did in French! [Wednesday,
January 24th, 2007
@ 6:02PM]
[ mood | tired ]

Sigh.

For some reason, lately, I've been hating school.
My mom or someone will ask me how well my day went and I'll say "Nothing spectacular happened..." or "It wasn't good... it wasn't bad."
I just can't stand it.
I'm not getting bad grades. Sometimes though, I feel bored, tired, or just annoyed with the system.
I hate getting up in the morning for it. BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP and I hit the alarm off. Recently, the first thought that pops in my head is something like "I have to go to school again? Why can't we have a freaking snow day already? I hate school..." and so on and so forth.
I wonder if this is how every high schooler feels now. Because I've been feeling this way for a bit already. And by the time my Freshmen year was over, I knew that I loathed the high school experience. I wasn't beat up or anything. Things just aren't fair, and I don't get it.

Speakin' of fair/unfair. In drama, the other day, I tried out for a role in the class play. I wanted to be this girl named Bonnie because she later, along with a few other characters, becomes a superhero. I was very excited at the idea of rockin' out the hero look. We got to see who made which part today. And I didn't get it. I'm an extra. They play cheerleaders, disco dancers, and a few other parts. I'm not trying to be mad for not getting the part. But I think I might be. I know it's life and we don't always get what we want, but... it just makes me a little sad. The teacher said to the class today that, "... the roles were hard to choose. Everyone did great." Then she added the fact that "In some instances, it was so hard that we had to decide between two people... the senior then got the role. So seniority did factor in." I don't really see how that's fair. I mean, I sort of get the fact that seniors won't be here next year, so their only chance. But, maybe if you think about it, if they wanted a main role, they should have taken drama in a year eariler. It's their choice to take it so late. They had a chance to try out for a role and get it because they are good... not because they only have one chance left. I would also say now that people only get one chance to be in drama, so everything should be fair. But this is my second time around. I didn't fail last time, I just wanted to do it again. I like acting. So maybe... just maybe... I can take into account that I didn't lose the part because I suck at life. I can think I just lost the part because life ain't fair. Hmm. It just makes me feel better.

On a good, un-ranty note, last week in French we got to watch Moulin Rouge. I was so pumped about it. Madame (our teacher) kept pausing it, to take notes about it. But I was aiight, because it was fun to learn details about the night club and dancers that I didn't know.

For some reason, I feel a sense of "Yes, this sounds like a real post! None of those crappy posts that I post that just say 'Yeah. I hate school," because I actually explained my feelings. Feelings, ahhh, yes!

Oh, I watched High School Musical for the first time this weekend. (I know, where have I beeeeeen?) I liked it, and I bought the soundtrack. ;D

Catch ya later,
Kourtney

P.S.
I shall apoligize now if indeed my opinions offend you at all. I try not to. I try to keep an open mind, ya know?
I love ya.
Bye now.

In 2007, gc4eva_89 resolves to...
Spend more time with my icons.
Find a better food.
Pay for my animals on time.
Tell my family about scrubs.
Start a water fund.
Give up acting.
Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Oh, Africa, Brave Africa. It Was... A Laugh Riot. [Sunday,

[ mood | cold ]

So, I sort of declined on my postage rate recently, eh?

A few things happened since my little disappearance.

My phone broke due to water damage (fell in da toilet).
So I got a new one. It's niiiiiice.

I watched American Psycho for the first time, this weekend. I liked it! It was twisted and weir though. It was about a killer... yet, it definitely had a funny side to it. Christian Bale did a superb job in it! (I'm not just saying that because he's H to the O to the T, but because he executed his lines perfectly.) Jared Leto was in it too (30 Seconds To Mars). It's based on a book that I think I want to read. I watched the unrated version. Uh-oh. But it was good. *thumbs up* I don't know who I'd recommend this to... but I would recommend it... if I knew who to recommend it to, ya know?

New semester at school starts tomorrow. I'm taking drama again fer fun. I don't know if it was a wise choice or not. We'll just have to find out.

This week, I bought this new game called The Movies and you have a movie studio and you have to take care of your stars and make... movies. It's pretty darn fun.

I keep sneezing.
& I gotta go now to youth group.

Jean: What's that?
Bateman: Duct tape. I need it for... taping something.

First Official Post Of 2007 [Tuesday,
January 2nd, 2007
@ 9:40PM]

Welcome to my first official puplic post of '07.

It's now January.
How was everyone's New Year's eve/morning?
Every year I watch the ball drop in NYC, on tv.
This year though, I wasn't set to be home from vaca yet. But, to our surprise, we were.
So I had nothing planned, really, except to watch the ball.
And that's all I did.
A little depressing to say the least.

At school, we're starting to plan our future. I have the slightest clue to what I want my future to be. They (the school minions) asked us to write down 3 careers that we are interested. I went blank. After several minutes of 0_o and the constant "I don't know what to put!" to my friends, I wrote something along the lines of:
1)Web Design/Graphics
2)I've always had an eye for journalism
3)I want a unique job, but I don't want to work at a fast food joint.

Aye-yigh-yigh.

High school. Wow. I don't like high school too much. Food's not so good. Some teachers there are like woah. Take a chill pill, guys. I only have one more year after this. Then my future begins. What the crap do I want to be when I grow up?

I can't think of much more to rant on about right now, so this shall be my sign-off time.
I should really go to bed, since I couldn't fall into slumber mode until around one a.m. last night, after several hours of tossing and turning with endless awake-ness...

Ah, the first day back from holiday break was not good. I felt like c-r-a-p all day. I felt pretty uncool in the education area today. I don't know why. Does that sound stupid? I want to change that. I don't want to care about what other people think. (Unless, you know, drugs or drinking becomes a problem and they need to tell me that I should stop. Then... then I shall listen).

Signing off,
Kourtney
