play-doh in biology class

Yes, today in biology, we made models of the processes of transcription and translation out of play-doh. It was quite amusing. I hadn't played with that stuff for a long time. It was fun. We had to roll long strips of it into these thin, long logs. Yeah, so, I guess I'm going to go now, bye

Ring Pops and Oedipus Rex

I'm wearing/eating a ring pop right now. It's delicious. Strawberry. Mmm. I have to read Oedipus Rex in a few minutes. It is a Greek play written by Sophocles. It should be better than the History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides, which is what my classics class read last week, and was really hard to understand. I'm having fun telling people that I've read books like the Iliad, the Odyssey, and Thucydides. It sounds impressive. Yesterday I went to my sister Amy's book club. They are reading All-of-a-Kind Family by Sidney Taylor. I read it when I was about the girls age, and I loved it. It was so sweet to hear their take on the classics stories that I enjoyed when I was young. Well, I'm going to go read about Oedipus! Wish me luck.

I watched Rocky Balboa today. *Sniff* "Why is that sad?" you may ask, or even "Why does that matter?" well, I'll answer both questions. First, it's sad, because my brother-in-law Ben and I have been watching the Rocky movies one by one and we are now out of movies. (Rocky Balboa is the last) Sure, we can re-watch them, and most likely will. But the point is that now I have seen them all (except the fifth one, because he told me that it is stupid, and that he and his family don't watch it) and, well, it won't ever really be the same. Which, I guess isn't that sad. And next, it matters because they are some of my favorite movies now. I know they can be pretty corny at times, but Rocky is SOOO SWEET! He just says the sweetest, funniest, most endearing things. If you have seen them, then you probably realize that by me just saying that, it gave away which one I like best. Rocky II. Watch it and tell me Rocky isn't sweet. That's impossible.

welcome to the world of katie I started this blog, because I felt like I wanted to tell people who I don't get to see very often about what's going on with my life, what it's like in high school, and all that type of stuff. Hope you enjoy it.
