2 Adults, Disneyland OR California Adventure for New Years Eve?
This is a lot like asking whether to have the lobster or the prime rib at Napa Rose. Both will be fully awesome. Disneyland will have midnight fireworks, as well as a DJ in front of the castle. DCA will have a World of Color Show and similar activities. Here is the summary of info from my spies at mouseplanet.com:

DCA is also planning three areas with live bands:

Tim Gill All-Stars swing band – a swing band, performs in Carthay Circle
The Kelly Rae Band – provides country music entertainment in Cars Land
Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney is also hosting a three-course dinner package, which includes party favors, unlimited soft drinks, and a midnight champagne toast. Contact Disney Dining at at (714) 781-DINE (714-781-3463) or email email@example.com for more information.
If you want to celebrate New Year's Eve at the Disneyland Resort, we strongly encourage you to plan ahead, as the weeks surrounding Christmas and New Year's are traditionally the busiest times of the year. Try and avoid exiting either theme park, since it is not uncommon for Disneyland to reach capacity and for park management to enact crowd-control restrictions that at times can include halting park entry. To celebrate New Year's Eve at the resort, pick either Disneyland or DCA and stay there; between crowds and restricted entry, park-hopping may not be a viable strategy, especially at night. Most importantly, remember to bring extra patience along and to enjoy the evening.
I can't decide what class i should take?! French or Visual Arts Class! PLEASE ANSWER!!?
First: chill. It's only high school. Think of it this way. When I was a freshman in high school, I took French and choir. I took French until my junior year, and in my junior year I also took art. And then I worked my ass off and took art four and AP art my senior year. My teachers let me skip a few levels.. Now I am an art history major at in college. I wouldn't be doing nearly as well if I didn't have a background in French.
What I'm saying is, you're going to have time for it all. And you really can take both, just maybe not in one year.
BOA Honor Band of America marching band in the rose bowl parade?
I was part of the Honor Band of America in the Tournament of Roses Parade & it was a phenomenal experience that I will never, ever, ever forget to this day. Since Honor Band of America will perform in the 2013 Rose parade, I'd suggest you start looking for an application starting fall 2011 & the instructions should be there.
