My mini-vacation is over now. I got to do a lot of things.

  1. I gave a speech on vocations to the YLI. I didn't finish writing the second half of the speech, but I knew what I wanted to say, so it came out pretty well. Everyone liked it, anyway.
  2. My sisters and I met up with our aunt, who just returned from Singapore. This is the first time we've seen her all year.
  3. I took Snickers (the dog) for a lot of walks. I now have dog hair all over my clothes.
  4. I watched many episodes of Big Time Rush, which is now my favorite show on Nickelodeon. If you haven't seen it, it's a funny/random show about a band that's trying to produce their first album. I really like it, but I tend to mute the show when they start singing.
  5. See all the people at home for the first time in two months.
  6. I read a book from start to finish.
  7. I came really close to finishing Super Mario Galaxy 2.

However, there are also things I didn't get to do, such as...

  1. Play piano.
  2. Draw a picture. I have Rough Draft #1 of the picture done, so I need to hurry up and finish Rough Draft #2.
  3. Record something with my friend Paul, due to technical difficulties (ie. no sound).
  4. Get in contact with my friend who is near-impossible to get in contact with.
And tomorrow, I go back to work. I get to start off with all the work that piled up in my absence. Before I left for vacation, I called seven people and asked them to deliver their reports to my office; hopefully, they've all done so.

You got quite a bit done, nonetheless, it seems. Wrote and delivered a speech, read a whole book, almost finished a video game, among other things. That's doing some fast work!

Wow, you must be really busy.

I really like to watch Big Time Rush, too, but their singing isn't too good. I really like it because it's really funny and random, like Ned's Declassified, considering the shows have the same producer. So I enjoy watching the show, but their singing? :p
I've been doing absolutely nothing. I've been reading, and going on the computer. That's pretty much it..

Aww, you were gonna record something with Paul? If it's Paul from the GCDotNet channel, I love that guy! :D The walkthrough that you, Paul, and Nathaniel did for Super Mario Bros. 2 was really funny!

Hey, well their singing is better than the Jonas Brothers. In my opinion.

Hey Michael, I just found out that today is the Wizard of Oz's 71th Anniversery.
