What do I want to be when I grow up?

I want to be a successful, published author and some other career having to do with biology and possibly technology. Ideally, I'd want to be both at the same time, and I hope that dream is not too quixotic. I've already started writing stories that I'd live to get published. Publication is a far ways away, still. Even know, I know that some people will put my story on the banned book list and expurgate my books from their school for "witchcraft" and "blasphemy" if/when I publish my book. Really, people need to remember that it is in fact fiction.

My favorite actress...

My favorite actress is Katya Lipovesky! This is because she’s my stage mommy! It’s really harrowing that she’s going to college next year because I won’t see her anymore then! (NOOOOOOOOOOOO T.T). I hope our Mommy-Son relationship will be immutable forever!

What do I think of the open gradebook?

I like it because I can keep track of my grades better. I don't have too much of a problem with my mom seeing my grades, as I tell her if I mess up tests anyways. I'm not sure if she even looks at the gradebook anyways. I can see how it would totally mess up other people's lives because they beguile their parents into thinking they have As when the kid is really failing. Some people might think that whoever thought up gradebook was a callous person since gradebook can ruin people's lives if they don't have good grades. I feel bad for those kids whose parents are tiger moms and mess up a bit and their parents come down on them.

If I could drop one class from my schedule...

It would probably be history because I vehemently dislike history in general. It also takes up most of my time. I will definitely not abide history my senior year. It's got to go then!

Macbeth's Curse

  • Where did this curse come from? 
    •  Shakespeare included a witches brew in his story, and the people who did witch-practice were not amused. They supposedly cursed the play so it is very unlucky and bad things happen to it. You're not supposed to say the plays name in a theater.
  • Which ones were the most shocking from the list of terrible things that happened during the performances of Macbeth?
    • "1937 -- Laurence Olivier took on the role of Macbeth. A 25 pound stage weight crashed within an inch of him, and his sword which broke onstage flew into the audience and hit a man who later suffered a heart attack. In addition, the director and the actress playing Lady Macduff were involved in a car accident on the way to the theatre, and the proprietor of the theatre died of a heart attack during the dress rehearsal."
    • I think it's one of the most shocking because it had a lot of deaths or near deaths in one production.
  • If you had to avoid the curse, which strategy would you use?
    • I'd say, "Thrice around the circle bound, Evil sink into the ground." This is because I don't swear and if it's not outside, I'd rather not spit.
  • Do you believe that there is a curse? 
    • No. This play just has higher risks of injury because of the swords. The people who watch it, at least in the olden days, would reasonably do as they did in reaction to the play or what the actors did. It's an old play, and as the years go by, unfortunate events are going to crop up. You could say that in our middle school, the mics cut out, so there's a curse on the play if other unfortunate things happened to other people doing the play, but it isn't a curse.
