I am glad that my mom handles the loads of paperwork for our publishing company! Yikes! There have been so many finalizing papers, and I admit that I enjoyed putting my signature on two of the agreements. Who would have ever guessed a year ago, when I was scribbling words in spiral binders, that I would be signing print riders and excitedly awaiting ARCs for Grace: A Child’s Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery in just a few weeks.
Besides book excitement, dance is awesome this time of the year. Performances are coming up on Friday and Saturday, May 21 and May 22 at the Clark Center in Arroyo Grande for the Nipomo High School Dance Company. This show will be so much fun for me– I am dancing in 12 dances! The finale will be so cool… Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” 🙂 Sewing sequined neck adornments for our costumes today too. And on the 23rd of May, I will perform with San Luis Jazz at the Spanos Theater.
And then there is lots and lots to take care of right now in school. I am preparing for my A.P. Biology final tomorrow, and next week, I will take the end of the year special A.P. tests for World History and Biology. In Spanish II, my homework today was to write a letter (in Spanish) and burn the edges of my paper with a flame to make it look like it was written when Cinco de Mayo took place. All I can say is that it is always a good thing to burn first and write second!
