It's been so long since I've left an entry and to be honest I'm not sure why I'm taking the time to write anything right now. I guess I realize a lot of things are different. Even the girl in my icon is different than the girl that sits here now. I'm sitting on the couch with my mom now while she watches the Super Bowl. I really love my family.

I've done some stupid things this past year. I'm talking really stupid. Went through a bunch of meaningless boys that messed with my emotions. Lost one of my best friends on account of something I should have never done. Went through another phase of depression. But now I'm the happiest I've been in a long time. I finally gave my life completely to God and I find that everything is a lot more peaceful.

I'm in college now. Liberty University. Even though I live five minutes away from the school, I live on campus. I love my roommates so much. Abigail is from Atlanta, Georgia an Allison is from Rocky Mount, North Carolina (we're the Triple A room.) We just get along so great. I've met so many great, Christian people that have really helped me in my own faith. That was definitely hard to find in my usual public school setting.

I have a boyfriend now. His name is Mark. He's a year younger than me. He's one of eight kids and he's been homeschooled his whole life. Haha. So sweet. He's never had a girlfriend before me and I just like that so much. There's no games when it comes to him and for once in my life I trust someone of the opposite sex.

Anyway, that's my life right now. I don't know when or if I'll update again. But I miss the old days with you guys.

Ugh. I need to change that userpic of mine. That was a year ago! Say what?

I'm back from the beach unfortunately. I already miss it. And last weekend was my dance recital. Technically my last since I will probably never take that many classes again. Graduation was the weekend before. Graduation was surprisingly very not emotional for me. I don't know. I guess I wanted to get out of there more than I thought. However, I did cry at the dance recital. I love dance. Oh, and no more piano lessons... Honestly, thank GOD! I've been taking a long hiatus from it, however I've been getting back into it a little bit. Playing Beatles songs, though. :)Oh yeah, I'll have to tell you about Graduation night.

I'm sorry that this is coming out in random thoughts. There's a lot that I wish I could tell you about this year, but I don't know if I should. I don't know if anybody is even reading my journal anymore. Haha. Oh well. I would like to use it more, however.

Oh! I graduated as an honor graduate. Random thought, but I'm proud of that. Especially since I totally Senioritis-ed my way through that last bit.

The beach was very amazing. Much better than last year. I don't know why, but it just was.

I'm attempting to get a tan this summer. If you know how white I am, you know that this will be harder than it should be. Haha. I've been laying out pretty much everyday for like an hour. And today I went to the pool with Alyssa for like... five hours and I'm so sunburnt. It's painful. But sunburn = tan, right?

Oh my God. I can't even finish this entry now because this guy that I know just pissed me off. I'll update later hopefully.

Ohhhh my goodness. I am... I don't know. Stressed. Very very stressed. And it's been that way since my last entry 9 freaking weeks ago.

I had my AP Government exam last Monday and AP English exam on Thursday. Then I have AP Phsyics tomorrow and AP Psychology on Tuesday and then Guild Auditions for piano on Wednesday. Quite honestly, I've worked harder on piano than I have for school because I can't bs my way through piano. I've had to memorize seven pieces. And holy crap I need to work on my musicianship phases tonight. I will be soooo glad when piano is done with. I'm on the verge of hating it now. I really loved it at one time. Oh yeah, the piano recital is on Friday. GOD.

My graduation will be on June 13th. That's pretty close! I'm excited but at the same time, I'm going to miss some of these people that I probably won't see much. Like Josh and Sam. They've been good friends this year. Josh is going to college in North Carolina and Sam is joining the Air Force. :(

And I have a somewhat boyfriend. Haha. Matthew has been my best guy friend since forever and things have just changed for us. He asked me a week or so ago if I would be his girlfriend, but I was like ohmygosh I'm so stressed right now. So, we'll see what happens. He's going to be be four hours away next year. :(

So, I went to Disney World during my spring break. That was funfunfun! It was me and my mom and my sister and my two nieces. I got sick while I was down there, though. :/ I love Disney World! I think that at some point in my life that I want to do the Disney College Program where you work at Disney World for a semester. How fun would that be!? And I talked to my dance teacher Lanette and she said that she might be able to talk to this lady she knows that's in charge of staging down there... A dancer in Disney World would be beyond amazing.

And then there was prom! Prom was really no big thing last year. Like, I kind of hated it. And this year was such an improvement! Matthew asked me to the prom, but by that point me and my girlfriends decided we were going to be dateless because that's what's up. This other weird creepy guy also asked me and I said no. I loved my dress! And it didn't rain this year. The people in my group were awesome. Dinner was great! And we all danced this year. It was just so much fun. After prom was kind of the same as last year, but Matthew was there. :)

I've been working hard in dance too. The dances are getting there, but we still have a lot of work to do. The recitals are June 19th and 20th, so that gives us little over a month. I'm sad, though, because my bff Sarah got really caught up in school this year and wasn't able to come to class much, so she decided to not be in the recital at all. :(

Speaking of, I went to Sarah's house last night! It was tres fun as it always is when we're together. We watched JONAS (this show is a lot better than I expected!) and parts of movies and then we decided at 1:30 in the morning that we wanted to go to McDonald's. So, we did. And there was this car behind us at the drive-thru and they turned the music up really loud and this girl got out and started dropping it like it's hot. It was really really funny. The drive-thru lady looked out the window and was like "Crazy fools..." I stayed at her house until 3:30 and then came home and passed out.

Senior awards are this Thursday! I'm excited for that. Then there's Senior day and the Busch Gardens field trip. There are things to look forward to. I can't wait. :)

Ahhhh. Ok. Let me go do some more of this crap. I miss lj. Hi guys. :)

P.S. Ohhhh yeah! This summer I'm going to see two Jonas Brothers concerts, the American Idol concert, and a festival in New Jersey where Coldplay is the headliner! I'm super excited!

Whoa. 8 weeks since I last updated? Yikes.

I'm 18 now. I feel like I've changed. Not since turning 18, but just this school year in general. I'd go into details, but I don't know. It's not necessarily for the better... I've done some stupid things.

I need a good song for this video I'm going to make for Jenny. Just a song about friendship.

I've been using Crest White Strips. They work! You should try them if you're interested. It's suppose to last for 18 months. That's quite a long time.

I found this necklace the other day that my dad gave me in like 6th grade. It's beautiful. I love it and I'm going to start wearing it more often.

I want a haircut so freaking bad! But I'm not going to but it because I know that I need to let it grow for the dance recital. But the more I look at it, the more I want to just chop it all off. It's funny because this time last year I had crazy long hair and I didn't want to get it cut. I realize now what a hassle long hair is.

Yesterday and today were snow days. So so wonderful. I wish the rest of this year until June 13th would be a snow day.

Dance songs!
Tap - was going to be Headstrong by the Vitamin String Quartet, but we're going to look for another song by them with a slower tempo... I still need to make a CD for that.
Jazz - Pink Panther (this is going to be so cute! I'm a detective.)
Ballet (Wed) - The Snow is Dancing by Debussy (This is in my piano book...)
Ballet (Thurs) - I actually don't know the name of this song...
Pointe - Ugh... As many times as Mrs. Sanders has told us the story, I should know the title of this song. We're muses, though.
Solo - Bella's Lullaby by Carter Burwell (this is in Twilight... which most people know that I think is stupid, but this song is really pretty--you should listen to it.)

Piano is killing me. I have Gold Cup Festival this Saturday. I just barely have one of the pieces memorized. I can't even get a gold cup this year, so I don't know what the point is.

I've moved up to number 25 in my class. Woo hoo. Still an overachiever at heart while everyone else slinks into senioritis. Funny thing is, is that I've known where I'm going to college for a long time now. I really haven't needed to try, yet I still do.

I have a prom dress now! It's soooo pretty. Jenny ordered two dresses and she picked the one she liked best and then she said that I should try on the other dress and I did and we love it!

Tell me what you think. :)

I saw the 3D Jonas Brothers movie on Friday night! Sarah and I almost got to actual concert hysteria, but nothing will ever exceed that. It was a great night.

Now something I stole from swannishs_epee

It's nice to be relaxing. Sunday morning, my mom, Tori, Marcy, Skylar, and I went to North Carolina to see my brother, Stephanie, and the kids. It was really hectic. But it was nice to get away and there were a lot of random, funny moments.

-Tori and I both noticing how Skylar was so freaking loud on the way down there, but neither of us had the strength to say anything. And when all of this was happening, "You Talk Too Much" by Run-DMC was playing in my iPod.
-Walking across the parking lot with Skylar at Wendy's and her saying "You just stepped in oil." Everything was slippery inside. Then when we were leaving, I said to Tori "I stepped in oil on the way in." And she said "How did you know you stepped in oil?" And I said "Skylar told me..."
-My mom saying "I think there's view of a field on this side" when we got into the hotel. When we opened the curtain, it was someone's backyard.
-At Zach and Stephanie's house, Tori got a glass of tea. I said I was going to go out to the van to get a bottle of water and Tori came with me. Tori poured her glass of tea in the bushes and poured a can of Coke from the cooler into the glass instead.
-Tori sitting in the armchair and me sitting on the couch while I text her to look at the golden retriever angel they have on top of their tree. Hahaha.
-Marcy telling me to add something to my memoir and Skylar saying "Memoir. That's Spanish for memory."
-Tori had put her cell phone in my bag and I had my camera in there as well. I had my phone in my hand and I went to get my camera out, but pulled Tori's phone out instead and had two identical phones in my hands and I was so confused for a break moment. I said "What... the heck?" Tori saw what I was thinking and she started to crack up at me.
-My mom, Tori, and I watching the Elmo my mom got Davis and Allison as it was telling a story. Everyone else was somewhere else for some reason. Elmo is supposed to have a little stool with him, but it wasn't there at the time and he went to cross his leg over his knee and fell over and just sort of opened his mouth and laid there. I looked at my mom and Tori who both had "wtf?" looks on their faces and I just cracked up.
-Most moments when Stephanie, Mama, Tori, and I were playing Taboo.
-When Tori was typing things on my cell phone late at night and typed "I.Marcy my name is NAPKINSPI :) BRING ME TO YOUR PLANET." and "E.hugsy is my pic. Partner in crime buddy. You can.t imb elf this. Th4r right." I almost peed in my pants.

Jenny and I saw Eagle Eye last night and then I spent the night at her house. We watched Moulin Rouge. I had never seen it before. I really liked it. :)

Now I'm going to get some things done that I've been meaning to get done. Yay.

Long time, no see. It's been more than a month! And what a crazy month it has been.

I made it through the visitation and funeral, as well as the rest of Thanksgiving Break. I just felt weird most of the time. I'm so glad my family was there. Being with them made everything seem ok. Especially Tori. We got close through this situation, I think. Granny is by herself now. My sister, Tori, and Skylar are going to move into the house next door to her so they can take care of her and everything. My Grandaddy hasn't written a will, so now everything with that is all messed up because so-and-so wants this, but whatsherface also wants it too. I don't want anything of his. Just little things that meant something to me, but not a car or anything. It's not that big of a deal. :/

We celebrated Thanksgiving at our house this year because it would've been weird to have it at Granny and Grandaddy's house. It was a lot of fun. I love Davis and Allison so very much. I'm pretty sure we're going to have Christmas here too.

I also got involved with a jerk. Glad that's over with.

I've been SO tired. So so so tired. And it's because I've had to stay up until 2 or 3 every morning trying to get my homework done. All I think about these days is sleeping. I've been doing homework-type things since break has started, but now that Christmas is here... forget it. I don't care if I've finished it or not. I'm not doing anything else.

We just read Heart of Darkness in English. It was ridiculous. We were all like "..." through the whole thing. Ms. Wright really is an awful teacher. We have to read part of The Awakening over break. I actually read it. No help from Spark Notes. And I enjoyed it. I think she purposefully chose a girly book this time around. We needed it.

So, this is how break has gone so far...

Saturday: Christmas piano recital (bleh), new cell phone (LG... still feeling iffy about it; I miss my razr), shopping, and my mom getting sick so we had to come home early

Sunday: skipped church because mom had been up all night throwing up, Church Christmas party (we played dirty Santa and I got the exact penguin salt and pepper shakers that I saw at Target that I wanted), visited Sarah at her new job at Smoothie King

Monday: mom got sick again and had to miss work

Tuesday: I tossed and turned that night and woke up feeling weird... I thought it was my turn to start throwing up. I got out of bed and thought I would put up my hair just in case I did start all of that mess. When I finally got my hair up, I was really dizzy and I stumbled back a little bit and landed on my bed--my heart was racing, I couldn't breathe, and I broke out in a cold sweat. I thought I was having a heart attack or something. So, I ate some crackers and drank some sprite and that was about it for the whole day. I just laid on the couch and felt like crap the whole day. I also took a two hour nap and then I went to bed pretty early that night too. I don't know what was wrong with me.

Christmas Eve was good. I woke up and watched Miracle on 34th Street. Then I got dressed and watched the Duggar marathon on TLC. I love that family. :) Tori, Marcy, and Skylar came over at 6:00 and we had dinner and opened presents and then we celebrated Skylar's birthday (Christmas baby... bleh.) And now I'm here.

Some of my favorite things that I got are Run-DMC shirt and Beastie Boys shirt (matching with Sarah!), Wedding Dash (very fun game!), a beautiful picture made by Katie, Victoria Secret's perfume (from Mrs. Davis, my 3rd grade teacher), Johnny Cash CD, Michael Phelps book, a pop-up book about how to find flower faeries (it's so pretty!!), and a limited edition picture of A Hard Day's Night with actual film from the movie in it. So cool!

I mentioned Mrs. Davis a bit ago. I like being at the elementary school again. I love those kids. I've made a special little friend named Hellen. She's a sweet little Asian girl. I was walking in the hall with her the other day and she was like "Where are you going?" And I said "I have to go back to school." And I made a sad face. And she said "Nooooo." And I said "I know. Believe me. I'd rather be here with you than down there." And she said "When you go to college next year, can you still come to see us here?" And I said "I'll see what I can do." I would just love that. To be able to chill with kids for awhile. I also got to see a lot of my kindergarteners the last week because I was helping Mrs. Davis decorate in the cafeteria. Love them. :)

Well, I should've gone to bed like... hours ago. I was going to wash my hair and all that, but that didn't happen.

Thank you to those for showing concern in my time of need. I really appreciate it. I hope you're all doing well this holiday season. I read what you guys are saying, I just never get to comment all the time. Have a very merry Christmas! :)

My Grandaddy passed away last night. Blah.

The visitation is on Tuesday. The funeral on Wednesday.

There must be something about November. Friday was my one year anniversary of the wreck.

We gots a new president, yo. :)

I am disturbed by the people in my town, though. They are either very "conservative" or very "liberal." I guess I fall neatly in between. I would've been happy either way. I just want someone in the White House who will actually do something, you know? Anyway, tomorrow should be interesting. We can all go back to regular life, right?

It's fun to witness history, though. I will admit.

Ah! Ah! I started looking at old entries and the entries on this front page go all the way back to last school year sometime. I don't know why, but it boggles my brain. As hard and as tiring as school is, I really like it this year. I have fun for the most part. I feel like I've finally become outgoing, you know? So, now when I think about graduation, I become a little bit sad. There are some people I really enjoy seeing everyday. I know college will be a different and good experience and all that, but there's always that comfort of having the same people in the same types of classes with the same types of teachers. Aw. Growing up sucks, doesn't it?

I got another haircut today! I don't know why, but I was going crazy with the other one. It was just getting so long. I don't think I'm afraid to get a haircut anymore. Anyway, I pretty much have side bangs nows and I really like it. I'll post a picture as soon as I have one.

My Halloween was freaking boring this year. I stayed at home and that's it. I just stayed here. And did nothing. Better than last year, though. I studied for a text last year on Halloween. :)

The downside to my Psychology class being online is that I get distracted up the wazoo everytime I try to do work on there. From Facebook to last.FM to iTunes. It never ends. Hahaha.

I have just been Little Miss Optimistic these past few weeks. I don't know why, but I just feel happy and blessed. I hope it never ends!

I'm afraid I'm becoming some kind of boy crazy teenage girl. I don't know what it is, but this year I have just been all about the boys (well, for me anyway... haha). I'm afraid that I'll start relying on their attention for self-worth which is sooooo not what I'm about. So, I won't let it happen.

I've been officially accepted to Liberty. Yaaaay. :)

I am so ridiculously tired. I got to bed at 2 AM everynight. WHAT THE EFF IS THAT? I need to stop getting distracted. I'm so bad at computer work.

Hello ladies and gents.

Well, crap. I can't believe that October 9 was last week. This week flew by! I'm not complaining, though. I'd rather have it fly by, honestly, than drag on.

I've just been on an emotional rollercoaster this year. I guess that could be one reason why I don't update as much. I'm not the type of person to artciulate my worries and concerns when I have them. I just bury them deep inside and try to forget them. I feel ill when I think about things sometimes. I know it's something I need to work on, but really... is it better to discuss those types of things? I haven't decided yet. It's all silly, really.

Yesterday and today were just so miserably tired. I can't sit down anywhere without closing my eyes for a little nap. This sleep depravation has resulted in my ISP returning. For those of you who don't know, ISP is isolated sleep paralysis. Its when you brain wakes up, but your buddy is still in the sleep mode. It makes me feel like I'm suffocating or drowning or something is resting on my chest. I can't move--I feel paralyzed. It's really scary. I usually have it during naps and stuff because I fall asleep in the computer lab a lot or at my desk. During the summer, I started to have hallucinations with them. Nothing scary, but like I'm having a conversation with someone. Then I wake up and I'm like "????" I just need to go to sleep earlier! UGH!

My College For a Weekend visit was very pleasant! I loved spending time with Sarah. She made everything so much fun. I think we started to go crazy around 9:30 on Friday night. Then we stayed up until 5:30 in the morning and slept until 2:00 in the afternoon. Haha. No wonder I'm all messed up.

This year I've been listening to music life crazy. Just crazily listening to it all. Ok. I want to tell you all the songs that I just can't get enough of lately.

Oh, it has been so long. I have just been on the go all the time. I like it, though. School has actually been pretty fun this year. I've adjusted and I really like it now.

Physics is always fun. I feel like Mr. Templeton really does have my back. He helps me a lot. The guidance office is nice. I like to wander around the school and talking to Sam can be fun too. Sometimes I go back to Physics and get help. I pretty much do whatever I want and I really do feel like a senior. Haha. Enrichment is good. I'm able to go to the library everytime to get things done for Psychology. I feel like I spend a lot of time in that library. It's been helping me to get things done. When I'm not talking, of course. Psychology is pretty fun too. Our last module was about neuroscience which is just ugh to me. We're in developmental psychology now, though, which I love. Teachers typically have to study that. :) Lunch is a lot better. Jenny has first lunch for a month and it's like 9th grade all over again. Awww. The elementary school is nice. There's a few little girls I always talk to while I'm up there. Kaylee and Hellen. They're so sweet. Sometimes I doubt whether I really want to be a teacher, but then something always happens that reaffirms my path to that career. Government is soooo boring. I mean, I love Mrs. Frazier and I've been all up in the politics this year and I'm trying to learn and be interested, but it's not my thing at all. And we're starting Congress now. Ugh. I've been trying to go to bed early just so I can stay awake in that class. It doesn't work. English is the funniest class ever. Darnell is a trip. Everyone is a trip in there, really. My sarcasm just pours out in there.

I've been sick the past two weeks. I even lost my voice. It's still a little raspy now, but much better. I never get sick!

Last Saturday I went to King's Dominion. It was so much fun! Alyssa came with us and our church group. Alyssa and I went around wiht Justin and Buddy Lee the whole time and rode all the wonderful rollercoasters. That's also what contributed to the voice loss.

I'm going to College For a Weekend at Liberty this weekend. I'm really excited! I'm going to stay with Sarah! No school Friday or Monday! Four day weekend!

Ok, I have dance. See you later kidds!

Bleh. Second week of school down. It was only 4 days long and it felt like freaking forever. Dance also started this week. The schedule is ok, I guess, but I'm getting really run down already, which is concerning.

Physics = still pretty easy, so far
Guidance = I like it now, minus if I have to run a lot of things to a lot of classes because that makes my body hurt
Psychology = whoa, a lot of things to do, but I love it
Lunch = better
Elementary School = it's not the same
Government = bleh
English = whaaaaaaaat?

I went to the football game last night. I'm so glad I can actually function properly in the normal world. Haha. But I really am surprised that I had fun. I usually hate these things. We lost. Whatever.

So much homework today. It's all I've done.
MESSAGE

[08 28 08]
So far, Senior year has sucked. Haha. And I'm pretty sure all my classmates agree with me.

Physics is nice. I love Mr. Templeton. He lets us just chill and we're reviewing right now, so there's nothing new. He let me and Josh sit in our same seats as last year, thank goodness. I don't really have any best friends in there, but it's still fun.

I was supposed to be Mrs. Edwards student assistant this year, just like last year, however they've put me as the student assistant for the guidance office. That means I just sit there doing nothing until they give me a note to take to a student. It's not too bad, though, because Sam is the student assistant in there too at the same time. So, we can talk or we do homework or sleep. I got a little nap in there today. I'm still upset about not getting to help Mrs. Edwards, though. Guidance never told me they were going to make me a Pioneer Pal... Apparently I'm eventually going to help 9th graders. Oh goodness.

We started this thing called Enrichment this year. We have it on Tuesdays and Thursdays and it's supposed to be like study hall. Basically I want to die in there. I have the special ed teacher and I have no one I know in my class. According to the rules, we're not allowed to put our heads down or sleep. What the eff? And we have to be silent. And we can't go to other teacher's classes unless we're requested by them. It's so stupid. I'm the only senior in my class.

AP Psychology... Hahahahahahaha. Katie, Tara, Matthew, and I are the only ones doing the AP Psych. Adeel and Ben are in there do AP Chemistry at the same time and Timothy is doing AP Art History. These virtual courses are just strange. It's so weird to talk to a teacher on the computer. And we just have no idea what's going on. And we're supposed to have a textbook, but we don't. Oh gosh.

Lunch has been a big mess for me this year. I went to 1st lunch the first day, 3rd lunch Tuesday and Wednesday, and 1st lunch today. Both times I went to 3rd lunch they ran out of food! Anyway, I have Elementary Assistant for 5th period and Mr. Johnson, the teacher in charge of it, wanted us to go to 3rd lunch. But there are all freshmen in there and like I said... they run out of food. So, we convinced him to let us go to 1st lunch.

Elementary Assistant is all right. I saw some of my kindergarterners the other day. Awwww. I miss them. Mrs. Davis, my old 3rd grade teacher and the teacher that made me love math, requested me. I love her, but the kids aren't in there half the time because they have lunch and recess and it's just not the same. Whatever.

Government is ok. We haven't gotten to the good stuff yet, I guess. We're just on the Constitution. :/

AP English is funny. Ms. Wright is just so lol. Darnell is in that class and I just think he's so funny. I mean, it's a long story... Anyway, that's a big ol' class. It's fun.

Anyway, I feel like dying at the moment. I know that it's just beginning of the school year blues. It feels like 10th grade all over again. I really should have no expectations for anything because that's when it sucks. Ugh.

Well, it's the last few days of the summer and I think I'm taking it like a man. I'm ready for this year to start for some reason. I need social interaction again. And I need to dance. I miss dance so much more than I thought I would. All the past summers, I've had time to dance and stuff, but not this summer. I have the creative energy flowing through me. I made up like... half a dance last night. I even wrote it down (the best I could anyway...) so I won't forget it like I usually do. Plus, I like that sore feeling I constantly have during the school year, as sick as it sounds. I like to know that I'm working hard. I've been running this summer, but running isn't really my thing. At all.

I'm watching Across the Universe at the moment. I just love this movie. I know a lot of Beatles fans don't like it because they think it's too Hollywood-ized and all the little teenagers are going to "like" the Beatles now. Haha. I just like the music, the story, the characters. I don't know.

Obama came to Lynchburg yesterday. My mom was going to try to get tickets, but they were all gone within hours. It's really cool. I would've loved to hear him speak. I would love to hear McCain as well. It would help with Government this year. My goodness.

I went to registration on Tuesday. It wasn't even really registration. You basically just went and talked to your teachers and I've had all these teachers before (thank goodness, to be quite honest.) I'm really excited I took AP Physics this year. We're going on a field trip in November to see a Shakespeare play and we're going to Busch Gardens again. Yay! Mrs. Frazier's class will, of course, be good. She told me how proud she is of our grade. She said we're one of the best senior classes she's seen in a long time. She went to go see Obama! Lucky her. I'm excited to have Ms. Wright again. She was my English teacher in 9th grade. I forgot how wonderful her humor is. It think it will be better to have her now that I'm older. I talked to Mrs. Edwards and apparently guidance moved me out of the student assistant program and moved me into some 9th grade help program. Um, I already have the elementary school kids. I don't need the 9th graders too. Anyway, she told me to just tell Dr. Laughn that I want to help her. Haha. I'll put together these Biology kits. Woo hoo.

My Psychology teacher just called. I have no idea where he's from, but he's an awkward little man. Haha. He went on and on and on and didn't even say anything. But he seems nice. I think he said his name is Mr. Matson. Maybe? He was like "The most important thing is that you don't ever feel awkward to contact me." Ok. You're making it awkward by saying that. Goodbye.

Oh yeah! I got one of the senior parking spots. It's the top 35 seniors. I'm #29 and Jenny is #30. Yayayay. It's funny because the #1 spot is the absolute worst parking spot. It's so far from the front door. My spot is good! Haha.

I had senior pictures today. Let me tell you, it's extremely awkward. I had to take off my shirt to put the drape thing on and I felt like I was hanging out all over the place and the boys were all around. It's over now. Thank goodness. I'm going to get my casual shots with someone else. I'm glad I made that decision.

The American Idol concert on Sunday was a lot of fun! It was so nice to spend time with Jenny and Mrs. House. The trip down there felt really short and we talked a lot. I don't really like Charlotte at all compared to Greensboro, where it usually is. It's like, an actual city and there was no parking lot for the place, so we had to park on the side of street. I'm not fond of the city, I don't think. Anyway, we walked around in a big ol' circle and finally found the arena and a place to eat. Our seats were good. However, the man in front of us very rudely kept turning around and told us to stop screaming. Mrs. House finally talked to him and told him to turn around. Haha. I don't like being talked to in that manner, though. What did he expect when coming to a concert? He acted like we were the only ones screaming. Whatever, old man.

I'm very tired at the moment. I think I'm going to go run. I will feel better then.

Holy freaking crap. When did it become the end of the summer? This is upsetting! Summer felt like it was three weeks long. I mean, I'm not as bummed as I am in past summers because honestly I'm used to it by now, but still. I have no idea what to expect for this year. I mean, I know it's not going to be easy as pie, but... I'm just concerned. That's all.

I got my schedule in the mail yesterday. This is the first time they've ever sent them out in this way and I'm glad about it. I hate getting the schedule at registration when everything is so chaotic. They're been real nazis about schedule changes and stuff this year, which I can understand, but still... Some people don't know how things are going to work out for them. Anyway, then is what my schedule looks like:

01: No First Period
02: AP Physics - Templeton
03: Student Assistant (I'm think I'm going to have Mrs. Edwards again, but I'm not entirely sure about that one.)
04: AP Psychology - Meadows (This is actually a computer course, so no real life teacher. Thank goodness, to be quite honest.)
05: Elementary Assistant (Haha. You know how I felt about this class.)
06: AP Government - Frazier
07: AP English - Wright
08: Enrichment - Koenig

The Enrichment thing is new for us. Basically it's study hall and it will be between 3rd and 4th period every Tuesday and Thursday. There are a lot of people complaining about it, but I don't see anything wrong with more time to get things done. I'm all about that.

The American Idol concert is this Sunday. I am very excited about this event!!! I love concerts! :)

Last night at dance, one of the teachers didn't show up. One of the moms came into the office and was like "Where is the hip hop teacher?" I called Lanette and she was like "She is supposed to be there." And I said "Um, well, she isn't." So, she told me to teach the class and I hit the panic button on the inside. Haha. I don't teach dance, I learn it. Plus, I hate doing anything spontaneously like that. I like to be prepared. I ran down and asked Samantha if she was busy, but she was going to the movies and Lucy had to teach another class, so I had no other choice. I taught the class in my jeans and bare feet. I don't do hip hop, though, so I just stretched them, taught them some of the basics of jazz, and then let them choreograph their own dances. Anyway, I will not be teaching any other dance classes anytime soon. I called Lanette back afterwards and she was really appreciative. She was also really pissed off. She said that the teacher will not be returning. Ouch.

Today Lanette paid me $270. Yeah, baby! She also wants me to do a Pointe solo this year! I've always wanted to do a solo! I'm excited I did this job. I feel more involved in the studio. For example, the last few weeks, I've been downloading songs and putting them on CDs for Lanette and I saw a note sitting on the desk where she's going to use one of the songs for a team dance. Yeah! Haha. It's the little things.

I hope you all have been watching the Olympics. I know 4 years ago they consumed my life. I just fell in love with Michael Phelps. I am rooting for him up the wazoo. I want him to get those 8 gold medals badly! Haha.

Where in the world is my life going?

So, apparently politics don't excite me in the least. I get so mixed up with all the details and complexities of the issues. Plus, it can just get so ridiculous. I'm working on my paper for Government, so I'm reading Obama's and McCain's issue statements and the sooner I get this over with, the better. I'm a little bit overwhelmed.

Besides that, though, I went to the Jonas Brothers concert on Wednesday. It was just so much better than the last time. Sarah and I went together. My mom drove us. I think everything that came out of our mouths that day was quottable. And we were in the 5th row! That is freaking ridiculous. Demi Lovato was wonderful. Avril Lavigne (puke on my face) was boring. The Jonas Brothers... I cannot even begin to explain the emotion running through Sarah and I during that whole shabang. They were SO CLOSE! Sarah and I are shotting for the 4th row for the next concert and meet and greet. Haha! In our dreams. I think we're still emotionally distraught about the whole situation. You know, that it's over.

Oh, and my camera decided to die like three songs in after the Jonas Brothers finally started. Ridiculous! Although my new camera is pretty amazing, so I got a few good pictures.

And I think I sweated from every pore in my body that day. Never have I been so hot. So much for outdoor concerts. Although JB did spray this soap stuff out into the crowd and being in the 5th row, Sarah and I were covered. We were like "wtf?" We were so sticky after that.

I'm going to do a meme swannishs_epee did. :)

Mmmm hmmmCollapse )

Sarah just left the house. We could be doing absolutely nothing and still have fun.

Hello everyone!

I had my driver's class on Saturday finally. I was for real stressing about that event. However, it was actually very nice because it made me realize that I'm not alone. Most of the people in there were my age -- about 17, 18, or 19. There maybe... five people that were over the age of 20. A lot of people were in there for tickets. The guy next to me was going 110 in a 60 mph zone! Great day! Haha. We had to go around and say why were in there. Which was nice. We were able to laugh about our mistakes. Oh, and Stephen's brother was in there, which was weird.

The whole day was soooo long. 8:30-4:30. I was getting so bored by the end. The teacher guy was really funny, although I could barely understand a word he said most of the time. And we were supposed to take a 50 question test at the end and get a 90 to pass, but he just made us go around and say three things that we learned. Thank goodness! So, this whole wreck business... I won't have to pay for it and it won't go on my record. Hallelujah. It's finally over.

I have nothing else to say. Very emotionally disconnected at the moment.

Well, P.S. My speakers are going crazy. It will be very soft one second and then the next second, it will be very loud. It's stressing me out. I don't want to have to get new speakers!

P.P.S. I started Life Of Pi and I reeeeally like it. It's very interesting. You should all read it.
