Since Elementary School

This never occurred to me but, a lot has changed since elementary school. I know what you're thinking: "You're a little late on that, Hope... fifth grade was two years ago--- GROW UP!" Fifth grade may have been two years ago, but I can still blog about it.

A lot has changed since then.

My hobbies have changed. Cheerleading used to be my life, but now all I do is read American Cheerleader magazine every once in awhile, listen to my old cheer music, and email some of my old cheer friends. Gymnastics is what made me who I am, but things have changed and I don't tumble anymore--- but I plan on starting sports acrobatics in the fall, so my gym life isn't over. I never thought I would end up singing in Fine Arts, and I didn't think I'd ever get to be in the FAF band--- even though I only do BGVs, I didn't even know I liked to sing until last year.

My taste of movies has changed--- DEFINITELY. I used to love movies like The Notebook and The Time Traveler's Wife, but now I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE action films, like Walt Disney/Walden Media's "Prince Caspian": I know nearly every line out of that movie! I just have to work on my British accent!

My genre of music has changed. I used to always listen to pop music, Jonas Brothers, and Francesca Battistelli. Now, I listen to (mostly Christian) alternative rock, country music like Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, hard rock (as in Fireflight and Flyleaf... both are Christian bands), and yes, even Justin Bieber.

Yeah... I've changed a little. But the things that I don't think ever changed about me and never will are:

  1. My humor, MWAHAHA!
  2. My ever-changing obsessions.
  3. My ability to be completely sad one day and get over it the next.
  4. My ability to change my voice--- I can sing opera-style (but no--- not real opera... I only speak fluent English), I have my normal speaking voice, I'm working on the chipmunk voice, I can fake a British accent (well? Not exactly... working on saying "he bumped me" with an accent), and my favorite--- THE BODYGUARD MAN VOICE.
  5. The thing about me that infants hate. What won't change about that? That I still don't know what it is.
  6. My horrible acting. I would like for that to change, but I don't think it will.
  7. My love for cellos, violins, and violas and the overwhelming urge to learn how to use one of them.
Those are the seven things that will NEVER CHANGE about me. I love to make people laugh, because when people are crying, I'm not good at cheering them up. I write poems about them to make them feel better,  but I am not good at comforting people otherwise. My ever-changing obsessions usually are a sport, band, or song. My voice-changing thing... you gotta admit that's cool. That's one of my top talents, actually.

Now, the reason infants hate me??? WHAT IS IT???!!! I don't know why they hate me. They just don't like me. They cry the moment I pick them up or read a book to them. If I try to tickle them or high-five them, they turn away. Oh, poor me...
