Ok, I’ve got this.
It’s March now and before you go complaining to me about the March Madness, I have my own problems. I have a weekend’s worth of make-up work to do, so I can’t really be too bothered to or say anything today.
I will be doing the Oscars and the Dummy Awards however.

Well, I hate February because not only is it the worst month of the year, it’s too short.
All the more reason to not like February.
What’s the point of having a super short month when the other months have 30 or 31 days in them. I can safely say that the next time we have a leap day, it’ll be February 29, 2016.
Anyway, since I spent most of the month in Sochi, I have tons of make-up work to do, so I won’t be doing too much blogging today. But I won’t leave you in the dust for too long, though.
Be on the lookout for the Oscars post, which will come this weekend.

Well, everyone, after nearly an entire day of sleeping due to the traveling (and dealing with the major time changes), I’m back!
After the Olympics ended in Sochi, it took FOR-FRICKING-EVER to get to the airport and then to board the plane. I’m just glad that cousin Laurette won’t be making it to my high school graduation; isn’t that a bad thing?
Who knows. It’s just one less relative for me to deal with.
Anyway, look for my next blog post on February 27, 2014.

Well, it’s about 8:00 am where you are, but here, I’m at the stadium getting ready to say goodbye to the Sochi Olympic Games. I must say that it was fun while it lasted, but now the games are over and everyone’s heading back home.
As for me, I’ll be boarding a plane after the ceremony ends and heading back home. I’ll see you on Tuesday.
But anyway, please look for me to talk about the Paralympic Games a few weeks from now, and I’ll be talking about the Winter Olympic Games, which will be taking place in South Korea in 2018 (by then, I’ll be 21 years old. Yay! I’ll be an adult!)
Look for me to do the Dummy Awards soon and I’ll be talking about the Oscars next Sunday. For now, I have to log off and get to the airport so I don’t miss my flight.

Well, things are winding down in Sochi, but it’s been great so far, wasn’t it?
In about a few hours, I’m going to be packing up my bags and heading home. I know you all miss me and you can’t wait for me to return so I can toss out a few Olympic-related memes.
For you, most of you will be watching the closing ceremonies tommorow and (hopefully) looking forward to South Korea Winter Olympics in 2018.
But before we end this, enjoy the Dutch’s speedskating win, the last of the ice skating, and the bobsled. I’ll be back tomorrow for the closing ceremony.
I have now realized that I’ve been out of school for almost a month. That’s because I’m watching the Olympics live in Sochi. But now, I’ve gotten a stern warning from one of my classmates regarding my prolonged absense. I will be publishing the letter in full so that you can all understand how he was. Plus you can have my reaction to the letter. )I’m warning you now, Philip, everyone’s going to find out what you said to me. Deal with your shame!)
Here’s the letter:
You think that just because your family comes from Russia that you can just skip a month’s worth of school and have fun in a country that hates gays for being gay? You are a sad, sick bitch who cares for nothing but her own interests instead of the interests of other people? Shame on you for leaving school and watching a bunch of people fight for a useless piece of gold.
And here’s my reaction to the letter:
You have a lot of nerve to be insulting me and my family’s decision to go to Sochi. Who are you to deny me the right to watch the Olympics live in my ancestral homeland? I’m ashamed to have known you for as long as I have and I certainly regret meeting you at all. If that’s how you want it, look forward to a beating as soon as I get home.
~yours for the bashing,
Well, that’s how one person feels about me and my trip to Sochi. I bet that 99% of you should be yelling at Philip for daring to slam my decision to go to Sochi. It wasn’t my decision to leave, anyway.
And if you claim to be gay, then I want nothing to do with you.
The rest of you can enjoy the Olympics. Let’s go Team USA!!!

I’m just checking in for a second time, only to realize two big things: slopestyle is now the official “it” sport, no thanks to the Americans who took over the contest. Go Team USA!!
Also, it’s kind of a sad day for Russia, as the big champion Yegevny Pleschenko was forced to pull out due to a debilitating back injury. It’s sad for him, to have come so far, then lose your career to a bad back. Hopefully, the rest of the team will pick up the slack.
And Shaun White didn’t capture the gold, which is sad. History is proving elusive, defying any and all attempts by our team to catch it. We can’t give up just yet.
Meanwhile, I’m banking on the women to pull something off in the ski jump. I don’t know who’s going to win, but I hope it’s someone from Team USA.
Let’s go, Team USA!!!

Well, the ceremony is now underway, and I’m the one telling you about it! But anyway, you’re not missing anything, so don’t worry.
But as the ceremony is going on, it’ll do you no good if I just tell you about it; all I can say is that you need to see it for yourself. It is too much for words.
I’ll be cheering for the USA team, so no griping about me cheering for the other teams. I do not support the gay athletes, however (Plus, I’m not too big on gay rights), and if you have a problem with that, then don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
Anyway, I can feel the excitement that is rising and I know that very soon, the Olympics are starting. I’ll get back to you all later on tonight (USA time) when you’ve seen the ceremony for yourselves.

Just because I’m currently in Russia doesn’t mean that I’m not telling you about the latest movies and such. (Well, the opening ceremony is happening right now, but don’t worry, you can watch it later)
Anyway, I have previewed the Lego movie (no thanks to Uncle Frank’s tablet, and all I can say is that it was a total letdown. There was nothing remotely entertaining about the movie at all and I wonder if this is the future of animated movies.
If animated movies are all disappointments, then I won’t be letting my kids watch them, no matter how much they whine.
That’s an hour and a half of my flight to Sochi that I’m never getting back.

I know I don’t blog so early in the morning, but I’m taking off for Sochi to watch the Olympics. I’ll let you all know how that flight went, seeing as I’m going to be spending nearly 10 hours flying over the Pacific Ocean. I hope that the whole debate over me staying in Russian for the weekend as opposed to an entire month was worth it.
OK, dad’s yelling at me to get off the computer so we can catch our flight. See you all soon!
