I'm racking my brain, thinking myself back to that third row desk in subbie science. What were those unforgettable phrases I'm now forgetting? What was it that cracked me up for days in U.S. History?
You know what I'm talking about, of course. I'm working on my senior quote section for the yearbook.

October is just around the corner, which means that I only have 3 more months of poetry left to write. I calculated the number of days left, and I just have to come up with 93 more poems and then my year long project will be complete.

As excited as I am for legitimately good upcoming movies like "The Rum Diary" and "Anonymous", there are more than a few films that I'm less eager to tell people about. I'm writing this blog as a way of calling out reviewers like myself that pretend that they only watch the classiest of classy movies.

I admit it--I've never been a particularly concise person. I like to talk and, consequently, talk very much. Sometimes I talk about interesting things, oftentimes about uninteresting things, but always about something; just ask anyone who knows me, and they can surely testify.

I am a Gleek. Urban Dictionary defines a Gleek as: "Anyone who is obsessed with the television show Glee may call themselves a "Gleek".
I definitely fall under these Gleek requirements. Therefore, two nights ago, Tuesday, September 20 was one of the best days for me in while. Why, you ask? The Glee Season Three Premiere, of course! The premiere was entitled "The Purple Piano Project."

If given the opportunity, would you jump at the chance to be able to create food without making or paying for it? Well, I certainly do. Do you know which organisms are able to do this incredible feat everyday? Green plants. And this is why ever since I have taken biology, I have always wanted to be a green plant.

As I browse through the cross country roster, I keep asking myself why people would choose cross country over soccer. It seems an obvious choice to me, but evidently other people don't feel the same way.

WHERE DO YOU play Whiffle ball? Your grandma's backyard? Your neighborhood park?
My family plays Whiffle ball in our house. Not the actual house we live in, but the house we're building about fifteen feet in front of the house we live in.

When Labor Day was first observed in September of 1882, it was hailed as a way to celebrate the triumph of unions. It was widely supported and was unanimously passed by Congress amid overwhelmingly positive public opinion. But today, 129 years later, unions are being destroyed and the once great holiday has devolved into a three-day shopping weekend.

Last Sunday at Espresso Royale in Champaign, I found a $100 bill on a chair. I initially wanted to move outside for a change of scenery when I saw the bill on the chair I was going to sit in. I picked it up and to my amazement realized that someone, somehow, had left a $100 note. It must have been somebody wealthy, right, because who else can afford to be careless with $100?

The end of this, my Junior year at Uni High, is a pretty big moment for me in my life, but it's hard to fully comprehend how close to the end I really am.

To be honest, this blog topic took me a while to think up. The creative juices just were not flowing. At first, I contemplated writing about my plans for this summer but a couple of sentences in, I realized I have no plans to speak of. Then fellow staff writer Jefferson Fu suggested that I write about his life goal of one day turning into a plant and being able to photosynthesize.
