Well, I sure haven't written on here for a while. I really don't know what to say, except that I just realized this morning how long it has been and I was sort of drawn to make a post. I'm a little bit guilty, for being such a bitch to Brenna, but it made me so angry that she wouldn't give me a ride that would take less than 5 minutes to Amanda's house. She made me walk, and it was really crappy weather outside. The only plus side to the whole thing was that the birds were singing and I saw a woodpecker hammering away at a tree. But I was pissed the whole day, and Mom thought it was a little weird that Brenna refused me a simple ride as well. Whatever. The whole thing's over with.

I really feel like I need to stop procrastinating. Mr. Ingram, my global economics teacher, is really piling on a lot of work, such as a HUGE project that none of us had enough time to do (what with work from other classes), and I had to scramble to put everything together in time. The essay itself was late, because I finished it after school in about 30 minutes and emailed it to him. Also, he just assigned another supposedly "easy" project about our local surroundings that I personally deem pointless. Mrs. Olson (honors English) assigned a literary circle project, which I don't have time to do either. I will thank the stars when this year is over and I can just have fun.

Dad took me driving yesterday in a school parking lot (there were no people there, it was the weekend). I was really nervous, and I'm really bad at simultaneously steering and keeping my speed where it's comfortable. I did alright though, except for a few jerky stops where I underestimated the strength of the break and almost sent Dad careening through the windshield. Overall I did pretty good, and I hope he takes me out again today. Speaking of learning how to drive, Mom and Dad signed me up for the local Driver's Ed class, taught by the school. Both Cory and Brenna took it. It's heinously expensive, however. It starts on June 1 and goes through June 5. Let's hope that I don't kill 10 drivers (or pedestrians) between then.

Well, yesterday was eventful in every meaning of the word. Apparently I left a package of grapes on the counter in the morning when I was in a rush, and Simon ate them later in one of his mischevious escapades. When mom picked me up, I knew there was something wrong because she had that stern, disappointed look on her face. She quickly informed me that Simon was at the vet. That's when my heartrate really started to kick into high-gear. Not my little boy!!! We went to the vets office, but he wasn't there; brenna had gone back to the house with him because he was fine. I was so relieved!!! It's so funny though, because the grapes made him have diarrhea, so they had to shave off his bottom hairs!!!! It looks like he has a reverse butt Mohawk. I thought he just had spotted fir, but I've recently learned that he has actual spotted skin!!!! :-D
All in all it turned out fine, but I still got a good scare from the situation!!! I certainly won't be leaving anything out on the table again......

Well I am updating this blog from my new apple iPod touch. It's a little hard to type on but I know that's only because I'm getting used to the smaller keyboard. I really like the Internet on it. I like how I don't have to deal with the crappy mobile versions of web pages. This is REAL INTERNET. I never really thought that there would be a fully functional web surfing device the size of my hand. I live it!!! Right now I have no regrets about spending my hard-earned 230 dollars on it. Yeah, I couldvr spent it on something else, but that probably wouldve been something like clothes. And I don't want to be like the preps at school who blow all their money on Abercrombie and Fitch merchandise which is terribly overpriced. Phooey!!!!! I'd rather spent my money on a charity benefiting animal abuse causes it homeless people. Well, my thumbs are getting really tired, so I'd better get ready for bed. :-)

Well, I know it's been a long time, but I haven't forgotten about my livejournal account. I'm currently on the couch, listening to the serenades drifting from our grand piano; courtesy of mom. I'm also waiting in eager anticipation for the arrival of my recently-ordered iPod touch 2nd generation. I don't think it will come today, since it's pretty late in the day (deliver truck wise, I think), but there's still that little glimmer of hope that comes when you just want something to happen so much that you partially convince yourself it will, or it might, whatever the reality of the situation is. I just really want it to get here so I can try out the internet, download my songs to it, download the podcasts, etc. I am SICK OF WAITING!!! I know waiting for a deliver may not be that big of a deal to some, but I've never been able to handle anticipation well. Whenever Simon jumps up on the piano bench and barks at something, I hope it's the FedEx man. But strangely, I haven't gotten it today. I tracked my order today, and the tracking page said that it arrived in a town close to mine at 5 in the morning and was being sorted. Well it shouldn't take that fucking long! Grrrrrrr...... >:(
Well, on the brighter side, I still have 3 more days of Christmas Break left. Sure, it would be nice for it to be a bit longer, but a day without school is still a day without school. I have to get to bed early tonight if I'm going to be able to get up as early as I need to to get ready once school rears its ugly head again. It's already began to rear in my mind; three days goes by quickly. Lately I've been going to bed at around midnight, and that is definitely not going to work when I have to get up at 6 in the morning. But every night I tell myself I'm going to go to bed early, but usually on those days I wind up going to bed even later for some reason. Well, that is going to change, starting tonight. I'm a man of my word.... Mooo hahahaha!!!!!! Damnit, I've been thinking about the Dark Knight too much.
As I speak, Cory, Dad Cory's friend Max, and Max's dad are skiing at Cooper. Or, they might be heading home from the slopes. Whichever you prefer; they are without me, and I wanted to go skiing very badly. You see, Cory "didn't" know I wanted to go skiing, and therefore he didn't set it up so it would work out with Max and his dad. There wouldn't be enough room in the car, he said. I do agree rationally, but still, I did kinda want to go, since we probably aren't going to be going skiing with Cory, as he has to go back to college soon. I don't know; no matter what I do, whatever kind of activity, it doesn't seem the same and as fun as it could be without Cory there.
Well, I'd better go eat dinner and sulk somewhere else besides openly on the net. Goodbye, for now.

I haven't written in a while, I know it, but now I am, so stop whining. :) Mom and Dad signed me up for swimming lessons. I am kind of nervous, because most people that take swimming lessons are under 8 years old, and well, I'm almost double that. I'm afraid people will make fun of me. Well, PAH! I'll learn faster than all the little kiddies, anyways. So ha. They'll see me progress 7 levels while they're stuck at the front crawl stage. I've already taught myself how to swim pretty well, so I have a feeling that my swimming lessons will be more about getting used to deeper water and diving, and the like. :)

I think it's time I got a new userpic, don't you? I don't know why, but this one is getting surprisingly annoying. I'll still keep it though, for later. :)

Also, I started high school! It's not hard. AT ALL. There isn't as much homework as I thought. I thought I would be getting like two hours a class each night, but TOTAL, I only have to spend about an hour a day. It's ridiculously easy. But I bet it'll get harder, so I'd better bite my tongue.

I have a debate to spur. You know all those horror movies that use ghosts and unrealistic events? Well, we're not going to be debating about those. We're going to be debating about the ones that could actually happen, like the upcoming horror flick called "Untraceable." It's about a division of the FBI dedicated to tracking down internet criminals. They get a tip one day about a disturbing site called "killwithme.com" The person that made the site is a total tech geek and is untraceable, completely untraceable, even with the FBI's crime stopping gear. The site is just one page; just a streaming live video of someone getting brutally murdered, all synchronized with how many hits the website is getting. The more hits he gets, the more his victim bleeds, and the more pain the victim feels. And it's all on the video. And they CAN'T FIND HIM. And every effort they make draws attention to the site, therefore more stupid people visit it, and the more victims are getting killed, faster. Couldn't some lunatic watch that movie and ACTUALLY make something like that happen? There are already sites like that out there; there are some twisted people making some VERY twisted and disturbing sites. Why make a hollywood film out of something that will probably HAPPEN as a result of it? Maina, comment! I want to know your opinion on this too. Watch the trailer for the movie if you want, too, I don't know if I explained it very well. :) I'm not good at explaining things.

Well, enough of my rantings. I just don't see why Hollywood has to cross the line of actually being DANGEROUS.

I shall return today, neverfear!

We're going to be leaving for Wyoming in two days!!! We're leaving on Friday, and I'm so excited! We'll get to see Grandma and Grandpa, and we'll also get to see Aunt Sandra, Garrette, and Monica. I wish we could stay for a month longer, though, instead of just a measly week. :( But I guess that's how it must work out. Aunt Sandra can only take two days off from work this year, so we'll probably have to save the best activities for those two days, like Yellowstone and Kayaking.

Alyssa will be there as well! I haven't seen my cousin for years, probably ten years or more. I wonder what she looks like now. I've seen Cade recently, on our trip last year (he's Alyssa's older brother). He doesn't look anything like what he did when I last saw him. He's more chubby, and I can't believe that he's the one that tore up a soccer field and got a girl in a car crash. He looks so.... innocent. But oh well. I can't wait to see them all, and that's the bottom line.

That's about all there is to say, so..... bye! :D:D:D

I found my cell phone!!!! I've been looking for it for weeks, and it was just in one of my pant pockets. I feel so dumb, because I literally almost turned to house upside down, but I didn't think of looking in one of the most obvious places till the very last thing. I feel like throwing fake flowers in random directions. :D:D:D I'm so happy, because now I can text Jared! I miss him, and he's moving. He is my best friend. And also, I'm done with my period!!! For now.......

I bet it's going to start up the day that school starts next month, with my luck. :(

Last night something really interesting happened. Simon got carried off by a bear!!!! Just kidding, but it was pretty close. I didn't actually witness it because I didn't get woken up to do so (I had earplugs in and didn't hear the crash Mom talked about in her account), but Mom told me the story in detail. Apparently she was sleeping and there was a huge crash. She looked outside her bedroom window, and there was a HUGE bear, the size of an elk, she said, trying to pry its way into the trash cans in Simon's chain link enclosure. Mom whispered to Dad, and that scared the brute off. He put his big paws on the fence, lumbered over, and ran away. There's a pair of huge huge teeth marks, or claw marks, on one of the trash cans, and the fence was bent way down by the weight of the bear as he tried to climb over. It's bent back now, but that must've been one heavy bear. He also made off with the makeshift hummingbird bath that Mom made. :( That makes me sad. Anyways, Simon almost got to the door and bolted out to see what the bear was doing, but just in the nick of time, Dad or Mom closed it. Thank God for that. I sprinkled baking soda in both of the trash cans and their lids so the bear doesn't get attracted to them anymore, and I'm going to rinse it out so the smell is completely gone.

I hope Brenna is getting me souvenirs. I really want something from a foreign country, because I don't think I've ever had something from anywhere outside the U.S.
Well, anyways, other than those little tidbits, there's nothing really to talk about. So... Bye!

After my counseling appointment today with Cindy, Mom and I went to Ross. God, I live for that place!!! I got a Buxton leather wallet for three dollars that is the softest blue leather I have ever felt, and it has polka dots on the insides!!! I love it. Also, I got eight pieces of other clothing including a pair of polo association shorts, l.e.i. pants, other pants that I can't recall the brand of, and shirts. I love this one shirt I got, where it's black but there is a grey pinstriped vest printed on that even ties in the back. It's awesome! I also got a midriff jacket that's cinched on both sides beside the zipper. It's black, and I had to work for a while to get it since it was ten dollars (that's a lot in Ross money), but I eventually got it. I can't remember what else I got. Oh, I got a bra and two make up sets that I'm not sure were worth it. I spent my own money on those, plus the wallet, so I'm not sure I spent my money wisely other than on the wallet. But oh well. I'm sure I'll put them to use at school dances and the like, where the lights are dim. ;) And maybe at prom.
Brenna's coming home on Friday from England!!! I'm so excited. Especially because I can't wait to see what souvenir she got me. I don't really know whether or not she got me one or not, but she better have, because she promised. Well, anyways, I'd better get to sleep.
