My room = Sooooo being painted right now

I've been wanting to get my yellow-cream/excess dirt coloured walls painted for a while now, and it is finally happening! I moved out of my room, and my laptop is currently residing on the dinner table. So I might not be on as much. But, the room is gonna be bright red, with a high-gloss grey in my nook, and maybe one wall that is mottled red and other colours. I came in this afternoon, and it was pink. Thankfully, this was just the primer. But I didn't mind the pink that much. I'm really excited about the painting though, and possible redecorating too!! That's one of the more girly things about me.

In other news, school is as busy as ever. It's weird, but one of my favourite classes right now (besides Humanities) is math. I think it's because we have a good teacher, but it's actually kinda fun solving all the cute little problems. I've never had that much fun in Polynomials! I'm having some trouble and procrastinating a bit in Humanities though. We're doing a lot of stuff that interests me. But a lot that doesn't. Of course, I'll have my work finished up and stuff by Monday... but still. In Science, I switched back into Science 9, because I'd rather focus on my other subjects and not have to do a whole bunch of extra work in science, which isn't my fav. My science 9 teacher is pretty awesome though. He wears glasses and plaid shirts, but he also really likes punk rock... We had him last year too, although this year he's claiming to make us work harder. So far it's been pretty easy though. Last night was "meet the teachers". I love these things, cause I can guide my parents around and see what teachers think of me, and check if they are fake in front of my parents. First we came to my humanities teacher, who my parents really like. He seems not to really mind the fact I raise my hand a lot. Then we saw my science teacher, but my brother's science teacher was in the same room, so I came in and talked to him while my parents were talking to my brother's teacher. Problem is, when they were finished with James' teacher they didn't have a lot to talk about with my science teacher, cause I already talked to him. After that we saw my math teacher, my parents were nervous about me going into the room because my brother's math teacher (who I had last year) was in there too. They didn't want her to know I was his sister, in fear of soiling his reputation. I still went in and talked to my math teacher, who my parents have met before. I think I tired them out in the end though. Oh well, I still love "meet the teachers".

Tomorrow I'm going to the Chili Pepper's concert with a friend. I'm looking forward to it, though I feel like a bit of a concert poser, for not having any of their CD's. Oh well, it'll still be fun.

Ahh teachers. It freaks me out that there are people far younger than me, who are responsible teachers.

Well... not all are completly responsible, but I have quite a few young teachers this year. The thing that freaks me out about teachers is that they shop and eat food and have kids and stuff... haha, that's awful, but it's always weird to see your teacher at Safeway.

Ohh, a red room that just sounds like fun. I hope everything turns out to your liking.

Have a blast at the concert!!!

The first couple coats are already finished, and it looks really awesome! Basically, the main colours are red, white and grey. Most of my furniture is white, and it looks very good with the paint on the wall. It should be done by tomorrow or Sunday!

Thanks Allison, it should be a lot of fun!

Evelyne said...

wow, your new room will be awesome... hopewe'll see some pictures when all the painting and decorating will be done!

Hope that the concert will be fun!

I will totally be taking pictures! Too bad I can't show you some "before" pictures or anything.

Thanks Evelyne!

My bedroom is red too, sort of a browny red, with brown and sage green trim. Only it's been that way for about 8 years now and I keep thinking it's time for a change, but I still like it. I've got sort of a cottagey thing going, with lots of pine picture frames and the pictures, now thatI think of it, are of photos from Muskoka.

Your room sounds amazing!

We're going to the chilis too, but didn't get the company seats so we are up in the nosebleeds. I'll keep an eye out for you (amongst the 86,394,983 other people).

Those colours sound really good, Barbara. My room before was kinda ugly walls + messy band posters and mismatched clothing and furniture. The cottage-y theme sounds really nice, It would be good to escape to earthy colours and Muskoka pictures after a hectic day.

I'm actually not sure where the seats are, I always end up with crappy seats at the 'dome. Except for the Who concert this October. You never know though, I might see you amomgst half of the entire city!

haha "Amongst".

Barbara said...

lol a concert poser...Have fun!
Your room sounds like it's going to turn out great. post pics befoe you 'move back in'.
You are so lucky you have a good math teacher, that seems to make all the difference between a student who loves math and a math-a-phobe. I failed grade 9 math due to a bad teacher...

hilary m. said...

It's looking really cool, Barbara! And there's only two coats. I'll make sure to post pictures, although there's a little dresser/bed/bookcases shrine in the middle of it.

I couldn't agree with you more about that. Last year I had a not-so-good (or enthusiastic) math teacher, who really didn't like me. Now I actually feel like I'm enjoying math. I don't think I want a career to do with math, but doing math a year ahead is kinda fun.

Your room sounds great! I love redecorating, too... it is fun :)

Sounds like school is going ok, which is always a good thing! Math at my school is good, mostly because Nic can make me laugh hysterically about the Principal getting locked in a supply closet and the teacher doesn't really care :P

Have a good time at the concert! Sounds like fun!

hilary m. said...

Haha, I love it too Becky!

Hmm. Principal in the supply closet. Sounds funny! Or principal isn't too cool... he's a bit condescending, I don't really like him. I have a couple people who make me laugh in my math class too...
