Under Your Spell



It's 7:30pm, my balcony door is open and the star curtains are blowing up and out but the air coming in is hot hot hot and makes the room even hotter.  But I don't really care - I feel trapped with the door closed.  My iPod is on random and this song by the Smashing Pumpkins is playing.  One time I went to Little Rock to visit my grandmother and a boy who played this song in his car over and over and over and over that weekend, so now every time I hear it I think of those few days, the sun when it's golden, and this song on repeat.  I always wanted to think he was playing it for me.

I'm devising my fall program schedule for girls in 6th-10th grade, and it's still amazing to think I get to pick what extra-curricular clubs to offer.  In high school, I was a member of at least fifteen clubs - I'm perpetually interested in everything (but never fully invested in anything).  So far, I'm settled on:

  • Girls Rock Camp
  • Film Making
  • Model United Nations
  • Cooking
  • Photography
  • Sewing
  • Roller Derby (Derby Brats)
  • Taekwondo
  • Theatre
  • Yoga
  • Science via a Sea World grant program
  • Girls Sports League

plus a few mandatory things like leadership development programs, technology, and similar concepts.  I can have five classes a day, and since this is the last year of the grant cycle, I don't have as much money to spend as I did last year, so I've got to pick some lower budget programs.

When you were in school, what was your favorite club or after school activity?

Whoa, I would've loved going to your school growing up. When I was in high school, I was really into Latin Club, Chorus, Theater, Mock Trial, as well as some other activities outside of school, such as Venture/Sea Scouts. I would've loved Photography, Sewing and Roller Derby!
