Well, sorry about that. I was getting a little carried away with the whole blogging thing. My name is Piper Diana Cassidy, and I'm one of two (three if you count Marigold's new doll, Felicity) new girls here at FMSG. I am so excited to be here... even though yesterday sort of came off to a bad start. As you all probably know, Nellie O'Malley isn't the nicest girl here. She's actually pretty nasty. She has this wanna-be friend, Rebecca, who does whatever she says, and together they cause chaos and havoc throughout the school. When we (and by "we" I mean Shannon, Felicity, and I) first arrived Nellie and Rebecca acted like we had some disease. They wouldn't come near us and they told us to go back to where we came from, which in my case is San Francisco, California. It was really mean and it hurt my feelings a lot. But, Madison, who was very welcoming, said that Nellie is rude to just about everyone who doesn't do what she says. And, from what I am seeing, that's pretty much everyone at FMSG.
Anyways, enough of that! Time to learn a little more about me. I was born in Malibu, California on March 13th. I was the first child my parents had had and they were thrilled upon my arrival. We were a happy family of three for four years and then my mom became pregnant yet again. Two months after my 5th birthday, Mom had her second daughter, Paulette Cassidy. I immediately loved my sister and we became close the day my mother came home from the hospital. But, sadly, financial problems took over my family and my parents fought day after day over bills, loans, rents... anything that had to do with money. A year after Paulette's birth my parents filed for a divorce. Paulette and I moved to San Francisco with my mom and Dad stayed in Malibu with our Westie, Coconut. I barely saw my father, maybe twice a year. By now, our family was split in two. Then, miraculously, Mom met a man named Harvey Johnson when I was 9 and Paulette was only 4. Harvey was a nice man and he treated my mother well. Paulette kept calling him "Daddy" since she had barely any contact with her real father. Eventually, Harvey did become her father figure. Harvey proposed to my mom on New Year's Eve 2009, almost a year ago, and Mom said "YES!". They were scheduled to be married in April, right after my 12th birthday and right before Paulette's 7th birthday. After the two "tied the knot" and went on a honey moon in Fiji, Mom realized she was pregnant AGAIN and this time with a boy! The baby is due in late January and Mom has been uber excited. Too excited. Since she was going to be so busy handling Paulette and my new brother she decided (with help from Harvey and myself) that it would be best if I go to an all girls' school where I could relax and have fun, rather than stay with them and be all stressed out over baby stuff. And that's how I got to here, Frosted Meadows School for Girls.
I know, I know, it's a pretty complicated story, but it's my story and although parts of it are sad, I'm happy how it has turned out so far. My mom and sister are happy, and so am I! That's all that matters, right?
Since you now know my complete life story I think I should tell you a bit about my interests and "personality". A lot of people describe me as an athlete since I *heart* softball and practically worship the Tampa Bay Rays. I was so mad when they lost the World Series, a year back. =( Also, I live for the beach! Growing up in California, that wasn't much of a problem, and now coming here to Florida I don't think it will be, either. I like surfing, but I'm more of a swimmer. I just love relaxing in the ocean and letting my cares float away...
My absolute favorite food is sushi, California rolls, especially. You just have to try those- DELICIOUS!!! My dad introduced me to sushi when I was only 3 so I'm pretty much an expert. As for my favorite color, it has to be a tie between green and bright, bright, yellow. Odd combo, yes, but super cute colors, in my opinion! Also, I have to say my favorite movie (don't laugh!) is Ace Ventura, Pet Detective: When Nature Calls. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!
So, that's me. I feel kind of weird letting out all my feelings and ideas on the computer, but, oddly enough, it feels sort of nice; like a weight has lifted off my shoulders! Thanks for listening to my endless rant. Bye!
