"Well that's not very nice to say!"

In about 45 minutes I am leaving for street drama on High and Broad Street. It should be fun.
There isn't a whole lot to update on at the moment. MAybe I'll have some more after I get back.

I was having a conversation with my friend, Rachel, yesterday where she was making fun of my friend, Aaron for using the term "Oh snap!", also just making fun of the term "Oh snap" in general. So I go "Uhhh... I say that."
"No, Rebecca. You are not an 'oh snap' kind of person."
"I say 'oh snap'."
"You don't say that."
So we finally decided that it was a stupid argument and left it alone.
So today I'm sitting there in the lobby, gloating to my friends about how I get to leave early and all that nyah nyah nyah stuff. Then I realize that I have left my preplan, which will let me leave early, at home.
All of my friends- "Oh snap? You don't say 'Oh snap."
It's fall again. Which means....... PEOPLE BREAK OUT THE CLUNKY SHOES!!I have on my Doc Martens, which I love. My dad asked me if I was glad and I said that although I love flip-flop season, I love clunky shoe season as well.
So as for my Agenda today. I have school, but I get out early. I am especially looking forward to (not) Parenting class today. We are watching *gag* The Miracle of Birth. Ok, I watched a movie similar to that last year, and those movies are only fun when CSG is sitting in the front row making commentary (probably because he is an idiot, but a funny one). So, yeah. Good times. Not. I am going to miss my Geometry test. I love that class. Why can't I miss Parenting instead? Why?

No, you are not seeing things and yes, that is Edward Scissorhands on my blog. I do not play with Edward Scissorhands. He scares me. I am clumsy enough that I do not need help get various cuts and scratches without his help.
Ok, ok. There is a point. I actually just needed a catchy title so that you would read one of my *snore* deep posts.
In the lunchline today, for lord knows what reason, my friend Liz asked me, "Why don't you cut your hair, Becca?" Well, I decided that this was a good time for me to try to actually reach someone with my beliefs instead of just using the generic "I'm Pentecostal." or "I don't think that it's right." or as my friends often like to interject for me, "It's against her religion."So I told her that it was in the Bible that women should not cut their hair. She didn't believe me. Well, I happened to have my Bible in my bookbag. So after searching, and searching and searching and searching and searching and searching (and well you get the point) for about 20 minutes I found it.
1 Corinthians 11
But any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled brings shame upon her head, for it is one and the same thing as if she had had her head shaved.
For if a woman does not have her head veiled, she may as well have her hair cut off. But if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should wear a veil.
5 A man, on the other hand, should not cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man.
For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;
nor was man created for woman, but woman for man;
for this reason a woman should have a sign of authority 6 on her head, because of the angels.
7 Woman is not independent of man or man of woman in the Lord.
For just as woman came from man, so man is born of woman; but all things are from God.
8 Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head unveiled?
Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears his hair long it is a disgrace to him,
whereas if a woman has long hair it is her glory, because long hair has been given (her) for a covering?
For some reason this didn't convince them all that much. But I did get them to listen to me, which was kind of nice. Oh and when I say them I mean that all the people at my table were getting into the conversation. Chelsea didn't believe that I had never cut my hair. Kirstin thought I was just retarded. Aymara and Liz were actually listening. Trying to prove me wrong, but listening. It was kind of cool to have my whole table having a conversation that wasn't about (as the one half of the table does) sex, drugs, or who was pregnant. They actually had a wholesome conversation for once. I honestly didn't know that that was possible.

A reminder that Street Drama practice is Saturday, September 23rd @ 10am-3pm @ TurnPoint Church in Groveport , Ohio 7718 Groveport Rd. , Groveport , Ohio 43125.
(Lunch will be provided.)
They lied. Lunch was not provided. So I had no money. So the pastor's wife from Hillsboro took me out to lunch. It was very nice of her.
The whole thing went great.
Read my dad's post about this here.

My blog has been feeling neglected. ("Awwwwwww, I'm so sorry blog! It will never happen again.....at least not until I have play practice, an essay due, and a sunday school lesson to write.......") Well, anyway, not a lot of big things have been going on, but the little things add up.
My baby project ended on a medium note. I ended up getting an 85% due to the stupidity of my teacher. Long story, don't ask. Turns out that my child of colic HAD been set on hard as I suspected. Wonderous, huh?
I love my Geometry class. I have an "A". It's going great. It is definately my favorite class.
On Sunday, I was at Mt.Vernon church again. Singspiration was that night. I just went, not expecting anything, and that morning, my best friend, Erica, came up to me and said "I have a proposition for you."
"Well, Hello to you too."
"Hi! Anyway, I have a question."
"Ok, me and Uncle Chris were supposed to be doing something for Singspiration tonight, and he backed out. So I saw you and wanted to know if you wanted to do one last duet before you move away."
So, I did. We were going to do "Alabaster Box" and just sing it. So then at the last minute, her mom and my grandma decided that it would be a good idea to sign it too.
So I had about 15 minutes for Erica to teach me the sign language for the whole song.
It did go well though. If I do say so myself. But, you better believe that I had my eyes on that monitor in front of me on the platform the whole time to see what she was doing to make sure I was doing it right.
Last night was my first rehearsal for "Wizard of OZ". It kind of rocked. The cast is great and I had a blast. This performance is going to be so fun to work on.
Oh, and for those of you going to General Conference-
On Thursday at 6 PM, at the Ohio Union Building on the OSU Campus, come see me!!! I'm going to be doing Street Drama with Bro. Howi Tiller. I have practice this weekend. They are also working on getting us into the City Center Mall on either a weekday or on Saturday. I'll keep you updated on that.

Another cool thing that happened today. I got my new baby. His name is Jack Michael. He cried all through Spanish, but he's slept for a while since then.

"Well, I thought my schedule was full."
"Well, what do you have 5th period?"
"Spanish 3, ma'am."
"Aww, man. I really wanted that voice of yours to work with!"
*blinks* Ummmmm....oooooooooooooooook. I'm assuming that when you hack at the end of an audition and you are still told you have a nice voice, then it's a good sign. So then on to the monologue. It's a comedic monologue and I preformed it for probably 6 of my friends today. It went awesome. The auditioners were laughing very hard. I called my dad to come pick me up. I told him about the audition and said that there is absolutely nothing that I would regret. I also told him that no matter how well I did, that I didn't think that I would get Wicked Witch of The West. He said that on the bright side, a good audition could be the thing that keeps you from getting something along the lines of "Female Munchkin #6". I laughed about that line all afternoon.

by) is to be an event coordinator. So I was looking through the book last night and it was talking about choosing engagement rings. I said something to my mom about wanting the kind of ring shown to the left, a pear diamond with baguettes. My moms reply?
"Well, I'm sure if you ask him nicely, he will by you a pear and some baguettes."

Ever since then, every year I have had teachers tell me that this is going to be the one landmark event that my kids and grandkids are going to ask me about forever, kind of like Pearl Harbor, Kennedy Assassanation, and the Challenger. I just hope that I never forget.

So, anyway, on to things that I KNOW are awesome. My church in Minerva hasn't baptized anyone in 2 1/2 years, since April of 2004, which is about the time that the poo hit the fan, so to speak. Soooo, my dad met this woman online (wow that didn't sound right) through his blog that was looking for churches in Minerva. Her husband visited our church this week. My dad went to his house yesterday afternoon to do a Bible Study and the guy is getting baptized on SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, needless to say, we're all psyched. It kinda rocks.
Ummmmmm.......what else is going on..... later today we are going to my Grandpa's house. I get to see my Uncle Mike, who I haven't seen in forever. So, anyway, have had a busy weekend so I should catch up on some of my mounds of homework.

- What is it?
- History of
- Careers in
- What classes to take for a career in
- Interesting facts
And it isn't due till October and I am almost done. Wow. I'm obsessive about this stuff.
My first class in Honors English was a little interesting. I have a lot of paper work to catch up on. After lunch I have my new history class and my NON-STUPID math class. And as if my schedule wasn't screwed up enough already, we also have a prep....errr... I mean PEP rally this afternoon, meaning that the period lengths are a mess. ARGH! Well, I better go now. Bell is going to ring for Biology momentarily. I have a test today. I am sure I am ready for it, but wish me luck anyway!
