Last Wednesday, my school held a Gala & Award show. I’m a bit upset that I got there pretty much at the end of the ceremony because I was stuck in never-ending traffic :[. I won 3 awards: 2 trophies for MVP in basketball & Honor Roll/Best Class Average in Grade 11 and a certificate for my co-op program. I didn't get my moment of shine on stage but it's all good. I'll be sure to be on time next year...that's if I am nominated again, lol :D. Enjoy the flicks!
My school’s graduation was last week and all my Grade 12 friends spent their last moments in my school’s auditorium. I was the soundGRL/techGRL for the night and I had to make sure everything was running smoothly. I took lots of pictures and it made me excited for my graduation next year! Take a look.
Where am I? Behind the lens.
Kiran always complains to me that I never blog about her, lol. So today in English class, she came up to me & said:
Kiran: Karla, today should be the perfect day for you to blog about me.
Kiran: (she gives me this face) -_-
Karla: Ohhhh yeaaah, it’s your birthday! Let’s take a picture in the hallway before I leave for work & I’ll blog you! (ll)
I just wanna send out a special birthday wish to my good Indian friend Kiran. We’ve been going to school together since we were 13 & today she turned 17. I love her with all my heart and she’s as brown as she can be. I’m jealous that she gets to have to Driver’s License & car before I do. But its all good, that means she can be my chauffeur. Dear Kiran, je t’aime <3
(Notice the blackberry in one hand; school books in the other, lol)
I’m the type of girl that doesn’t go seek for artists and I usually don’t buy it if you’re telling me: “Yo Check Out My Shit Yo”. I rather get put on by an individual who’s music opinion I value. I still keep an ear open to see who has the biggest buzz or who NewMusicCartel is pluggin’ the most. I’ll also see who’s name comes up on Twitter a lot & take a listen. I just hate to get bombarded with music, especially if it’s shitty. Fair enough right? Anyways, I was working on my English Essay on the Iliad and I tweeted this:
Someone link me to a dope mixtape I can vibe to for the rest of the evening while I work. And you better not send me your own shit lol.
My lovely homie Quentin from Fab5 Ent sends me a link to Wiz Khalifa’s new mixtape Flight School. I’m not a big fan of the auto-tune songs on these because I don’t like auto-tune in general but the other songs are bangers. I’m glad Q sent this. Now I can productively work on this essay that was due today =/. Oh, and the artwork is dope.
By the way, my wisdom teeth are growing in right, and shit’s a killer. My gums are hurtin’. My ears are hurtin’. My throat is hurtin’. My head is hurtin’. My jaw is hurtin’. My lungs are hurtin’. I just popped a pill of pain killers; shit better kick in quick.
Anyways, enjoy the mixtape as I am.
So while I’m not out hustling, I go to a place called highschool. This semester I only have two classes: English & Marketing. So in English class, we are reading the book “The Iliad”. My teacher gave us a little work to do; we had to write our own sonnet but it’s not as easy as it sounds! It had to be written by using those old English expressions and stuff.. All thats Shakespeare-like talk. We also had to pick a scene out of the book & base it off that. So this is what I came up with. Don’t laugh! I procrastinated on doing this and kind of rushed it. I think it’s cool but ehhh. Thy, shall, thy, caca, poo poo.
Sadly thy father is now daughterless
To solely capture, furthermore take,
It is reckless to be in this tough mess,
And where his soul; is yet in vain to shake.
Were once named Chryseis and Briseis couplet
Longed to Agamemnon and Achilles,
Already hated them although they just met,
Feeling vengeful like patterned buzzing bees.
Gratification doesn’t always work,
Thus said a second plan should be in play,
Enormous ransom returned with a smirk,
Broken down in several pieces of clay.
When done for; there is no where you can go,
Although you can give thanks to Apollo.

Yay? Nay? I should become a rapper right? Naw? Alright.
