Since I’m still in high school, I live with m y parents in the house I grew up in. My room I’d previously painted with them when I was around 5 or so: pink, white picket fence, flowers, starred ceiling, the whole nine yards. A little while ago, though, I got really, really tired of it. I gathered some ideas, colors, authentic (and real) nautical artifacts, like maps, lanterns, etc., from my uncle and aunt, and voila! A completely marine-themed room. Blue-grey with white trim and ceiling, large paintings and maps on the walls with a real ship’s wheel, and a lighthouse in the corner. I love it! It was totally worth doing.

How I did it: I had taken dance classes as a child, especially ballet, and I'd been brought up with having good posture. I quit around age eleven or so, and after then it declined. My avid golfing didn't help, either, and at 15 I developed scoliosis (quite suddenly, mind you). Thankfully, it's not that difficult for me to stand relatively straight, but my scoliosis is only ten degrees and only barely adjusts the levelness of my shoulders.But!I found if… Read how I did it…
My speaking voice is very alto, and if I say something sarcastic, I could easily pass for a man. I hate it. I basically just want to make it more dynamic and use more tones and pitches when I talk. More buoyant than just a log. (I’m tired, the imagery is awful.)
I usually go through a period of slacking off almost 90% in third quarter… I really don’t want to do that this year, especially with the several AP exams I have to take. AP World History is my most difficult subject and I’m determined to get a 5 on it. (Let’s also hope the new school year enthusiasm doesn’t die as fast as it usually does… Or die at all.)
