Sometimes I struggle with being productive. But I think I figured out the trick. :) here's the story. I took on the responsibility of accompanying a piece of music for choir. I didn't get time to practice till about Tuesday. I thought it looked pretty easy so I wasn't too stressed about it. Little did I know... It's probably the most intense song I have ever tried to learn. So how do I get myself to practice? (More than I already have... Which has been about 15 hours this week...)
This is how.

A hard choice to make

Dear tatertotexpress blog,
I seem to have forgotten about you with my new blog... I promise it's not you, it's me. And my lack of ability to stay on top of this blog. New things are just so exciting... You know?
I promise I will make time for you too... I just need to figure out how more things I can tell you about. So I am sorry... Oh! Here is a topic. Lets give this one a go, shall we?

So the other day (Saturday) I found out one of my acquaintances (that I honestly don't like all that much...) was spreading rumors. Now I'm not one to make a decision right then and there unless I absolutely have to. So I thought about it for a few days. It was a hard decision I could have...
-smacked her
-freaked out at her for saying crap
-stood up for myself
-told a teacher
-try and talk it out with her
Really the list goes on. But what did I decide to do? Kill her with kindness. Because in the long run, if the people she tells believe her, they aren't really my true friends. And who looks worse in the end? The one being kind and putting up with the drama, or the one making the lies and drama? I think we all know the answer.
I will be honest, I am pretty proud of myself. That's not an easy decision. What would you have chosen?
