Hey there, it’s me, Julia. I’m alive, don’t worry! I’ve been very busy with school; thank goodness it’s almost over (Not that I DON’T love you, school! Don’t get me wrong!)! Today’s post is a recap on the French Open. Now, usually, I would be having so many posts throughout the whole open, but this is going to be like a mix of posts mushed together! That’s gotta be interesting, but I’ll give it a shot!

I was very disappointed this French Open… I think I cried more than Roger Federer when he lost!

Not even my magical skills could save him against Robin Soderling! But, in all seriousness, Roger Federer lost, and there was nothing that anybody could do about it. This time, though, Roger was in one of the worst situations to lose: against somebody that he has beaten 12 times in a row… and in the quarterfinals. If Roger had lasted one more match and lost in the semi-finals, he would’ve been a straight Grand Slam semi-finalist for exactly 6 years in a row. That’s like eating the same thing for six years in a row… or listening to the same song for six years in a row. OK, those are bad examples, but you get the point: that would have been a big milestone for Roger.

But, the good thing is, it will take somebody FOREVER to beat the record Roger Federer has reached. It will take somebody exactly 6 years to even beat his record! Which would have to be somebody with a great potential… or somebody that’s not from this planet.

Roger said about his semi-final appearances, “They all come to an end at some stage–you hope they don’t, but they do. It was a great run.” He fooled around, saying,”…now I’ve got the quarter-final streak going, I guess.”

Robin Soderling advanced, eventually making it to the finals of Roland Garros for the second year in a row. His opponent wasn’t a stranger. Rafa Nadal, who lost to Soderling last year at Roland Garros, would play Soderling a second time in the finals. Some might call it revenge. But Nadal said that he wasn’t out to seek revenge on Soderling. Some might think otherwise.

The match wasn’t a hard one for Nadal. He either really wanted to get revenge on Soderling, or plainly was just playing very well. He beat Soderling 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 to get his 5th Roland Garros trophy.

Nadal seized the number one ranking from Roger Federer with this win. Brad Gilbert fought that Roger Federer would be the year-end number one. Darren Cahill thought Nadal would be. Who do you think is right?

Short Sleeves???

Short sleeves? In the winter??? With snow on the ground? Weird kid… But GUESS WHAT?!?! Today tennis starts again! So, therefore, I am wearing my Life is Good tennis shirt!!!! Hip hip, hooray!

Oh, and many of you have asked how I was doing after the teeth pullnation. (Well, not really, but it’s nice to pretend!) Here’s a picture of the holes in my mouth! You can see the bones in my gums!!!

I can’t show you the last tooth because it’s really hard to get to, if you know what I mean!! But, anyways, I have to go in the car in 12 minutes! And I still have to put my hair up in a ponytail, which I CAN’T DO AT ALL!! My mom always puts it up for me, and she went out shopping for things for my bathroom! (I’m getting a new one…) My next post shall be…. THE ADVENTURES OF JULIA AND THE NO-GOOD PONYTAIL THINGY.

Peace out!!!!

Ah!!!! The J isn’t in the middle anymore over my desk!!! Sorry, that was random, really something I just noticed. This is ANOTHER update thing, I guess. Or let’s call it another about me thing, only with really random things.

1. You really wouldn’t guess it from here or my videos, but I’m a REALLY shy person!! In school I’m really quiet, and one year in ballet, I got an award for being the most quiet person there! They said that they never heard a peep out of me, even when they asked a question!

2. Science and social studies are my least favorite subjects (sorry to my teachers!!), but I am doing REALLY well in Social Studies! I have an A+!!! And in science I have an A.

3. The title for this post has a funny story behind it. Last night at dinner (my brother was at his “girlfriend’s”, tehe!! Sorry Jake! It is obvious! You’re ALWAYS at Winnie’s!) my dad told me he was going away to Germany and Davos in Switzerland (he does every year) and he said that my mom was going to bring in her husband and her other children while he was gone!! So, I responded, “Oh, I can’t wait to see Sally again!” He smacked me with his napkin…

4. Taylor Swift is my favorite singer. My favorite song by her is Our Song or Breathe.

5. My favorite tennis player is Roger Federer!!! (Bet you didn’t know that! Tehe…)

6. My nicknames are JJ, Jules, Jul, Julie (I HATE this one!), Julianna (Although this is not a nickname, it’s a full name. BUT it’s NOT my full name! My full name IS Julia, I assure you!). There’s actually a funny story behind the nickname Julianna! So last year I made up that I had so many brothers and sisters because my math teacher had us do this survey about people in our family. (something about the first three numbers that popped in their head from 1-2 or something… and I told my friend that I didn’t have 4 people in my family to ask… I only have 2 because my brother’s never home! And you know, I wouldn’t call him to ask him a question because that’s weird. He would most likely get annoyed… this is a really long parentheses… and now I will end it…) What was I saying again? I bet you forgot too, because I forgot!!! Oh yeah, and I made up names for everybody in my family! I had an older sister named Juliet and she was married to Romeo. She had twin boys named Jeremiah and Jeremy. Then Jake was a triplet with Jacob and Jakemire! And I had a twin named Julianna (To my comm arts teacher: SHE is the evil twin!!! hehe… I am just the innocent one that just happens to get in trouble every time SHE opens her mouth.) and a little sister named Julie who just HAPPENED to look EXACTLY the same as I did when I was five!!! Coincidence???

7. Last night for dinner I had the equivalent of 2 servings of mashed potatoes!!! Which, of course, was all I had for dinner! (Do you REMEMBER why? Need I explain MORE of that painful, painful memory that will forever hold a scar in my heart? Boy, I am DEEP today…)

8. Here is a picture of my brother and me when I was just born! It’s EXTREMELY rare because I took a screencap from a video of us!

My dad told my brother to make a funny face at me to see if I would laugh! And Jake said that he fed me sometimes, and my dad seemed so proud of him! He said, “You do, Jake? Wow!” He was SO cute when he was younger! Oh, and Jake, if you are reading this, it’s not like you’re not cute now, it’s just… oh never mind.

9. Here’s an awfully strange picture of me!!

It’s from a video and it was at the start of it! And then I just suddenly burst up and screamed into it… tehe, I secretly still do that!

10. I haven’t changed my white board since August… or was it September? hehe… That’s going to be a pain to erase!!!

11. My friend just called inviting me to her birthday! And she also said how sorry she was about my teeth getting pulled. That was nice of her. 🙂

12. I have to go take a shower now… blech. Oh, that reminds me!!! (Oh no, here we go again…) My dad last night he was listening to his radio thing and he said blech! He told us how he first pronounced it like ble-ch with the ch sound, when it’s supposed to sound like a k!! Hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe (Wow that’s a lot of fun!!!)

Sorry for what I am about to say (I love that site with all of those goodbyes!!!)

No more of you. SHOO, SHOO!!

Enjoy the video! This is all how my afternoon went downhill! I still haven’t eaten because everything’s STILL numb! Oh why me? I was a happy girl before all of this!

And before, I drank some water because, well, I don’t know, I was thirsty, and it was really cold! It hurt one of my gums SO bad that I was actually crying! (I cried I think for 5 minutes. My dad even heard me from his office and came out to comfort me!!) I didn’t take a picture of that for you… because, well, nobody likes a picture where someone is crying! (Or do you???) I don’t think you want to see me in pain/agony!!! Nobody wants to see that, because when I’m in pain, I cry really hard!! (There goes one of my secrets… I don’t really care though)

The bleeding STILL hasn’t gone away!!! When is it going to stop! My whole life depends on it!! (Well, not really, but the whole happy part of my life does)

Sorry for this goodbye, but it’s from the site again!!!

So long, and thanks for all the fish, whatever that means.

My teeth!!!! They’re gone!!! Enjoy these snapshots (I’ve always wanted to say that!!) of me after it. Well, actually it’s still after I got my teeth pulled, and I can’t eat for a couple of hours!!! The only good thing about it is that I missed square dancing at school! (Although I’m in an all girl group) So don’t enjoy! (No seriously, if you enjoy them, then I’ll… well I don’t know what I’ll do, but it won’t be good!!)

^ That’s me saying, “Smile power!” (That’s what it says on the tooth case, but I really don’t agree with it whatsoever!

^ That’s me thinking, OH NO, my teeth!!!

^ That’s me thinking, This gauze is REALLY uncomfortable!!

^ That’s me thinking, Ew, my mouth feels gushy! (Even my lips feel all gushy!!!) I’ve actually already had teeth pulled but I hate the feeling no matter how many teeth I’ve gotten pulled!

^ This is me thinking, This side hurts SO bad!!!

So, I hope you didn’t enjoy them!


As of 3:22 pm, these are the new things that happened to me:

^ Me thinking, Wahoo!! New gauze!

Ew, OK, so the old gauze was SO bloody!!! And it fell on the floor, and the blood went onto the floor!!! Gross Lactose! (I don’t know, it rhymed with gross!)

So I’ll see you guys… (pulls “cool” glasses down) LATER.


Excuse my caps lock. I was always taught not to use caps lock because it’s not polite or something crazy like that. But anyways, hate these pictures as much as you want!!!

^ Me thinking, I’m SOOOOO hungry!!!!!!!! I can’t eat for a while and I haven’t eaten since a while! And I had delayed lunch today and I didn’t get to eat a lot!!!! I got to eat half a bagel and a yogurt. I usually have a little more. It is now 3:41 (I can’t go a long time now without blogging) and I can’t survive! Speaking of surviving, here is a picture of me pretending to act dead:

Sorry it’s not a great dead picture! I’m not at my best today… can you see why? I hate blood!! Especially coming from my mouth!! Once you think about it, isn’t it really weird how blood can come out of your mouth? I mean, you’re swallowing your own blood!

I’m OUT!!


OK, I am BACK and soooo NOT ready to PARTAY!!! Here is a picture of me when I’m thinking: I can’t feel anything when I’m scratching my face!!!

May your teeth never be replaced by freshly ironed wool socks. (Okay, I seriously have NO CLUE what that means!! I got it from this site for different ways to say goodbye! If you have ANY clue, PLEASE tell me!!! I just thought it would be perfect in this case because I am talking about teeth… tehe) Anyways, may your teeth never be replaced by freshly ironed wool socks.

So, I am doing this project in Comm Arts where you have to make a commercial/advertisement or a product of your choice. So, I took some pictures of myself for it, and really didn’t feel like putting it on a memory stick and transferring it to a school computer. That’s why I am putting the pictures here (which I’m kinda not happy about, but it’s better than doing all of that work :P). So, here come the pictures (and I just spelled pictures wrong the first time…wow)!!!!

“Only two?” you say. After that long speech, I’m sure you expected more! Just for your fun and entertainment (clearly not mine), I will show you some pictures nobody has even seen before (except for the one and only ME, of course)!!!!

^ The first picture that I EVER took on this laptop!!! I got this laptop for graduation in fifth grade (I got ALL A+’s!!!!) and that was the first picture I EVER took (did I say that enough?)!!!

^ Well, my dad has seen that one, so technically I didn’t go by what I said.

^ Showing people what I looked like without glasses… but the funniest thing is, and you’re going to laugh right here, is that I NEVER showed these pictures to them!!!! Ha Ha HA HAAAAA!!!!

^ This was a “blooper picture” for the post about me being sick in bed. Haha, good night Julia!!!

3. Some Wii games, including a tennis one (Yay!!), an iCarly one (I LOVE that show!!), one called Sing It which has a lot of Disney Channel songs, Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader? (tehe… I would HOPE so by now!), and yeah, I think that’s it. 🙂
