Confession Number Sixty-Four

I must confess...

... that I am extremely pleased with my ACT score. I took the ACT on April 4th and I found out my scores on Wednesday.

Wednesday, April 15th. School had ended. I had gone to my locker and then to the auditorium for rehearsal. We had a run-through of the show. I remembered at 2:40, 20 minutes before rehearsal started, that the ACT scores were being posted online that day. I grabbed Delia and we ran to the Media Center to get online and check. I sat down at the computer, logged on and opened the browser. It took me about 2 minutes to get logged onto the ACT website and t0 get to my scores.

At the top of the page I see...

I FREAKED. I was shooting for a 34 but told myself that I would be happy with a 33, but not a 32. I was soooooo happy. I yanked out my cell phone and called my mom. She was also very happy, of course. She told me I made her smile. :) I was so ecstatic.

I got off of the phone with my mom, and of course the librarian says, "Next time take your phone out in the hall. But I'm very happy for you. What did you get?"
"Oh! That's so good. Good job."

It went something like that.

So basically that made me really really happy. I ran back to the auditorium and was so happy. And I told Delia to not tell everyone and she, accordingly, yells "Justin got a 33 on the ACT."

It was great. I can get into pretty much any college now.

And believe it or not, I have actually considered taking the test again. I know - NERD.

Confession Number Sixty-Three

I must confess...

... that we fail at keeping this blog update.

We have had no time in the past two-three months because we have been very involved with our school's musicals and with schoolwork itself.

Now for a real confession...

I must confess...

...that I LOVE Adam Lambert! His vocal ability is unbelievable.

Delia can attest for this because one day after school I was listening to his version of Mad World while having a musical orgasm because he is so amazing. I kept shouting, "HE HAS NO BREAKS!" (Yes. I am very aware that I am a music nerd. I get it.) He has no trouble going through his breaks and he has such amazing control over his voice. The past two weeks that I have watched him, my jaw has just fallen to the ground. Both times my mouth hung wide open. I can't get over how amazing his vocal abilities are. In Mad World he sings a C. A C! How many guys do you know that can sing a C like he does? I know 0. (And yes, I went to my keyboard and figured out what note he sang. NERD!)

You should just know that I think Adam Lambert is amazing. He may not appeal to the masses, but he sure is the best singer on that show. He has set a new bar that is not surpassed by any of the other contestants, vocally. And I am sure that Delia agrees 100% with me.

Here is a link to his performance of Mad World.
