Youtube and the Apple Fest

And it's been a week since my last update yet again! I hate how I keep saying I'm going to update more often and then don't.

I'm also mad at myself because I haven't updated my Avatar fanfiction (which can be found here) in about two months. I've worked on it since then, but I haven't even worked on it in about a month. The chapter I'm working on is when the main action starts happening though, so I want to get it just right. If you read my story, a very important character is about to make their first appearance in the story. I've for shadowed it in earlier chapters, so you may have figured out who it is.

I've started posting videos on Youtube since my last blog. You can find them here. I'm not sure how often I'll post videos, and the two videos I have up now aren't that great. Please subscribe anyway!

I turned in my Beta Club dues in Friday, so I guess I'm officially a member of the Beta Club now.

Today, Regina, Summer, and I all worked at the Apple Fest (a local festival here) for Key Club. We were in the kiddie games area. Summer and I worked at the goldfish booth for a while, but we ran out of goldfish. Then, we ended up working at a paint spinner thing. Basically, we put a paper plate on this thing that spun around really fast and the kids squirted paint on it to make designs. I have paint all over my hands now.

There was this lady selling really nice baby dolls that she made herself. The cheapest are $100. Summer, being 15 and still obsessed with baby dolls, went to her booth to stare at them at least five times. She talked her dad into buying her one, and she texted me for probably a few hours asking me all these questions about what she should name it. It's a little scary how much she's obsessed.

I'm probably going to see Toy Story 1 and 2 in 3D tomorrow! I'm so happy! I though for a while that I wouldn't be able to see it! No one in my family would go see it with me either. Summer said she'll go. I don't think she cares about the movie at all. She just thinks it's cool that there's an intermission.

I really want to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs before it's out of theaters too. There are a couple of other movies I want to see, but I'd be fine to wait until we can rent them or see them on TV. They're all getting bad reviews anyway. Of course, The Time Traveler's Wife got bad reviews and I really liked it. Who knows.

I just saw the teaser trailer for Toy Story 3 the other day. I'm actually really excited about it even though I don't really like the other Toy Story movies that much. (Yet I'm excited to see them in 3D tomorrow... I'm an odd person. Or a really sentimental person who wants to see a movie I watched when I was little in the movie theater and in 3D. Either way, I'm still odd.)

I actually haven't mentioned this to anyone or even Twittered about (shocking I know), but I watched the first episode of Naruto last night. I'd only ever seen a few minutes of Naruto before, and from the way people in the Avatar fandom had talked about I didn't want to watch it. They hadn't said bad things, it was just the way they described it made it sound like something I wouldn't like. I hear about it in the Avatar fandom all the time, and now that I'm a fan of Ouran I hear about it even more. I decided to at least watch the first episode. I'm going to watch the second a little later tonight. I'm not really into it right now, but the first episode kind of intrigued me.

*There are spoilers for the first episode of Naruto and the seventh Harry Potter book in the next paragraph.*

I find the fact that Naruto has a demon inside of him. Since I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, it obviously reminds me of Harry having a piece of Voldemort's soul in him. There's also the fact they're both orphans, but that's a really common thing in stories. Since I hear about it all the time, I already know some things that are going to happen. I don't know it I'll watch all 220 episodes (and that's just part 1) or not, but I am at least a little interested.

I think that's all I have to say although I do feel like I'm forgetting something. I always do when I write one of these.

And I am forgetting something. I wanted to mention my speech. On Monday, I give my final speech in speech class. It could be on anyone or thing we wanted, so of course I chose J.K. Rowling. If you follow me on Twitter, or I may have even blogged about it before. I always have a problem with getting under the time limit in my speeches. I practiced this speech today, and went almost twice as long as I was supposed to! Now I have to cut the speech down. I feel like everything in it is important though. I guess that's the problem with talking about one of your heros, you want everyone to know everything about them. Hopefully, I'll be able to cut it down.

I also have to dress up for this speech. I'm not looking forward to wearing dress clothes all day at school on Monday.
