Hit the road with me as I aim for gold

A Trip to the U.S. Capital

Some of you may know that this year is the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary. So, to celebrate, the Girl Scouts hosted the world’s largest sing-a-long in Washington D.C. on the National Mall last weekend.

Girls from all around the world came to enjoy the Girl Scouts anniversary and “Rock the Mall.”

Everybody did this thing called SWAPs. Basically what you do is you make a bunch of silly pins and trade with other girls. It seems odd, but it is really cool when you have a bunch of pins on your bag or shirt from Pennsylvania and West Virginia and Florida and North Carolina and South Dakota and- well you get the point. 

Everybody didn’t spend their entire day melting in the blazing hot sun on the Mall.  People went to museums and went to memorials. I went a few myself like the Art museum and the American history museum. We also went to say hi to Tom Jefferson and sup to Abe.

The nine hour bus-drive was absolutely AWESOME! I met a few new friends and we talked and talked about things that had no meaning whatsoever.

We went to the zoo, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, National Museum of Art, National American History Museum, World War II Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, and I think that’s it.

In my opinion, the best thing about this trip was my friends. Making new friends, chatting and talking with them, getting to know them, and so on.

Make new friends, but keep the old. One ins silver and the others gold.

A ring is round, it has no end. That’s how long I want to be your friend

Back at home, the fat cat seemed to get larger and they both were a bit skittish, but I think they missed us.

Working The Dreams

Hello, Welcome to Road2Gold!

As a Girl Scout, I recently began working on the Financing My Dreams badge.

The first step in achieving this badge is to explore dream jobs.

My favorite movie ever is How To Train Your Dragon by DreamWorks Animation SKG.

So, this being the case, I have always wanted to work for DreamWorks.

For this particular badge, you have to research the salary for the job of your dreams. I got an estimate of $50,000-$100,000. (I think that’s good, right?)

The second step in this badge was finding a dream home.

I aimed for a house near DreamWorks in California. I found this house for sale at a price of $430,000! My mom said houses in CA cost a lot. I can see that. The good thing is, the house is only a five minute drive away from DWA!

And for that badge, that’s as far as I’ve got.

In the past few weeks, I have really researched 3D animation and stuff like that.

The farthest I have gotten is Flipnotes on the Nintendo Dsi. They’re like animations that you draw and draw and draw (that sounds familiar, doesn’t it?) until you end up with a flipbook movie! You then can create GIF files on your Dsi.

But 3D animation is VERY different. It has more of a real life to it rather than just a drawing. It’s what you can do with those drawings and what they can become.

Every second in a movie can take a few hours with movement and background and other stuff like that.

It takes a lot of computers, codes, people, work, a cast, music, and lots of time to make one movie.

For instance: How to Train Your Dragon was released in 2010 and How to Train Your Dragon 2 will come out in 2014.

Well, I hope someday I’ll be able to do that stuff.

Road 2 the Road

Hello, my friends. Welcome to my Road2Gold!

Who thinks they have a busy life? You’re not the only one.

Unlike my cats, I tend to be everywhere in one day!

I’m a busy girl. I CURRENTLY do tennis (or golf in the summer), swimming, karate, dance, piano, Girl Scouts, and of course- school! Not always in 1 day, of course, but it does make for a busy week.

My life is also filled with friends, hobbies like drawing and reading, and now I can add blogging to that list.

So, I guess you can say I’m always doing something. Or always on the road.

Won’t you join me on my road 2 gold?

And tell me: How busy are you?
