Happy Weekend, News, and a Couple Awesome Songs!!!


Sorry I haven't put up a new post for awhile. With the end of the year and ultimately graduation coming up, things are crazy!! So, today I just have some news and fun things to share with you.

Alicia (you all know she's my sister, right?!) and I won yesterday's match, 6-1, 6-2. Then today we also won and we bagelled (or donuted as Katelyn says *wink*) them, in tennis lingo, that's 6-0, 6-0! Next week I play with another girl, home, on Monday. This is also our senior day, since it's the last home match! That means that the underclassmen are supposed to do "something" for their seniors *wink* We'll see what they have up their sleeves...with my sis as part of them, there's no telling what they'll do!! Then, Alicia and I (probably) will be playing together on our away match Tuesday. That's the last match during the season. We will have play-offs the following week however, and Alicia and I know that we will be playing in that. Fun times!

School. Is. Crazy! We're hectic in the last couple (yes, only couple) weeks of school left. I have some assignments that I'm working on including a presentation on Cole Porter, a term paper on literary criticism and theory, and writing a commencement speech for my english class (while you're there check out this speech too!). The cool thing about the commencement speech is that we usually have 3 speeches at graduation: #1 and #2 ranked in our class and the president. However, the #2 and president is the same girl! So, we only have 2 speeches so far. Now, our principal is going to choose one of our speeches to use at graduation also! So, right now I'm in a competition of about 18. However, they might open it up more, so the number might go up. I am starting to really think about the approach I want to use, so that it's good. Maybe some of you had to present speeches at your graduation! Anyone??

Another thing that I really wanted to show you all was this video. This is one of my friends. This is her video audition for Glee. As some of you might know, there were auditions held to fill three, yes three, positions on Glee. This is her audition:

Keep Holding On

Glee MySpace Video

Isn't she AMAZING??!?! I love every opportunity I get to listen to her. Here's the link to check out more of the Glee auditions! Unfortunatley, voting is closed now, but it's still really cool to check out all these talented people! However, I still think Becca's the BEST!!!!

I hope this post made up for my lack lately!! LOL! I'm hoping to do posts a little more frequently or at least update you better! *wink* Soon *crosses fingers* I will be holding an awards banquet. So, you all can be super excited for that. Anyone have any food requests??? I'll be sure to get it *wink*

So, until next time, have a great weekend, relax, and happy reading!!


  1. Wow!!! You are a busy girl, Hannah! :) I hope all goes well with your final projects, speeches, etc! (And congratulations again on winning your tennis matches!)

    And I agree, your friend does have a very beautiful voice! :)

    I gave a speech at my high school graduation. I was our class valedictorian, and everything went very well. The other two girls who gave speeches did great, too! I hope your graduation is super fun and exciting for you!!!

    An awards banquet, huh? I would love some chocolate-covered strawberies! (To fully appreciate my request, just check out some of the posts/comments from food week a while back on my blog, as well as some posts/comments from a while ago on Cerella Sechrist's blog.) ;)

    Hope all goes well with your last couple of weeks at school! You're almost there!!! :D


  2. I must say, I'm insanely jealous of your friend's voice, it's incredible. She makes it look so effortless. I hope she gets one of the spots =) Glee is one of my favourite shows.

    Ahh grad time, it's a crazy busy time. My grad actually took place a month before school was done (which was weird), so it kind of sucked to graduate and then just have to go back to classes haha. But your grad day will have so much lead up to it and will go by so fast. Make sure to have lots of fun and take lots of pictures -- you only get one grad (college/university doesn't count haha).


  3. Congrats to you and Alicia! Awesome job winning all those matches! :D

    Hooray! High school is almost a thing of the past! ;)

    Becca is awesome -- I hope she aces the audition!

    I have another award for you:

    Bodacious Award

    Miss you! {{hugs}}

  4. Wow, Amber!!

    Class valedictorian.....what an honor! That's really cool *grin* I don't know if you checked out my links, but the rap speech is hilarious! Ellen really does a great job too.

    Chocolate covered strawberries, huh? A girl after my own heart....I love choco-covered strawberries!!! Seriously, good choice ; )

    Thanks for the well wishes, I'll be posting as much as I can!

  5. Okay, well, Meg, I've gotta tell you....I honestly don't think I have a bad voice, but it's NOTHING compared to hers!! LOL! I don't know if that makes me sound snobby or not, but lemme tell ya....she is truly incredible!

    Lol! That's funny that college doesn't count. However, I can kinda see where you're coming from. Once you graduate from college, you've already graduated once before. So, you know the routine basically. High school graduation is all new! We'll see.....

    Thanks for coming! I'll talk to you soon,

  6. I hope she gets it, but think of the odds....very, very, incredibly slim chance, but she definitely stands out in a crowd : D

    WOW! Another award, thanks a bunch! Another to add for the banquet *wink*

    Miss you too!! *hugs back*

  7. Congrats on everything! Your life sounds full and busy and happy, which is exactly what it should be :) Enjoy darling. (And I need to catch up on Glee!)

  8. Hi Julie,
    I'm SO mad we missed Glee tonight!! We had a tennis match over 2 hours away. So, we missed it and on Gaga night too!!! Ah well....what can you do?

    Lol, yeah I guess it should be....

    : P

    We'll see how life goes...I'm sure it'll keep going on! Lol!
