Well, the summer is really flying by. I can't believe it's almost time for me to go back to school. Well, sort of anyway. I head back on the 16th of August which is rapidly approaching. Unfortunately August 6th is approaching even faster which is when Mike leaves for the Adirondacks. *sigh* He is an environmental biology major and Houghton has a program in the Adirondacks. He's really excited about it. I'm trying my best to be excited for him...but, it's obviously a little difficult since he's going to be gone for a whole semester. Oh well, it's only a few months...I can deal.

So, I'm still working at Tom Wahls. Fun fun. Sometimes I don't mind, and sometimes it's just plain horrible. I can't decide if I want to continue working there next summer...I probably will. I'll probably be there until I finish college. And hopefully no longer than that. I would be horrified if I was still working there when I graduated from school. Of course, now that I've said that I know that I'll end up working there, but whatever.

I would just like to say that I really don't like money. It's too much of a pain in the butt. What happened to trading furs??? I mean really...life was probably so much easier then. Well...maybe not. Anyway, the point is that Houghton College is frickin' expensive and I may have to end up taking a year off in between my sophmore and junior years in order to make some money. *argh* I hate loans...I really don't want to take a year off...I'm not even sure it will be helpful. I don't know- I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Ok,I have to work at 8:30am tomorrow and I'm tired so I'm going to stop rambling and go to sleep. Good night.

I'm not even going to bother mentioning that I haven't updated in quite some time. :)

So, this semester is pretty awesome. I am loving it. I'm taking a lot of education classes and they are great! The teachers are absolutely amazing. They know exactly how to teach; the classes are so much fun. This sounds really dumb, but sometimes you really do forget you're learning because you're just so involved in the class. And then you take a test and you're amazed that you did so well because you didn't really study that much. But, they're just such great teachers that it seems easy.
My classes that aren't education ones aren't terrible either. I love my POW teacher. He's so funny. He's like a grandpa. Mike took it with him as well and he loved him. The professor still sends him Christmas cards and talks to him all the time even though Mike only had him for his first semester freshman year which was 2 and half years ago now. I think that's so awesome. Western Civ is as boring as ever and now that I have it at 8:00 in the morning it's even worse, but oh well. I guess I can handle one bad class. :)
I'm going to be an RA next year. I'm pretty excited about that. A little nervous too. I'm going to be in charge of like...16-30 girls. *yikes* I think it'll be fun though. And I know most of the other people who are going to be RAs as well. We'll have a blast together.
Michael and I are still going strong. :) We have our ups and downs (college can put some stress on a relationship) but I still love him. <3 He's going to the Adirondaks next semester though. :( That'll be a little rough. Probably good for the relationship though. We haven't ever been apart for a large amount of time and I think that you almost need that. I'm not looking forward to it, but it'll be all right. It's only a semester. :) Well, I would love to continue on with my very interesting stories, but I've got a paper to write. Until next time.

1/9/06 04:21 pm - It's been a while...a very long while

Well hello there everyone. I have this feeling that no one will be reading this. Of course, that would be my own fault since I haven't updated in MONTHS. Oh well, what can ya do?

Anyway, I am back here at college for my second semester and I am loving it. This has definitely been one of my better life experiences so far. And, I am really looking forward to this semester in particular. It should be a good one. I have a lot of classes that I am excited about which is always a good thing. 

Break went well. Basically I worked....a lot. But, eh, whatever. I need the money and it wasn't too terrible. Not as stressing as being there 40 hours a week for a year. Not even close...I also got my ears pierced and we also got a puppy and let me tell you- she is ADORABLE. Freakin' adorable. Her name is Molly Mae- not my first choice, but since I'm not the one cleaning up the poop-I am not the one that gets to name her. Irene would be the lucky girl that has that job. Ha....

You know, for not having told you people what's been going on for the last few months...I really don't have much to say. I'm sure that a lot has happened but do you think that I remember? Heck no! Oh, I got my ears pierced. That was pretty exciting. I'll probably be getting second hole here sometime soon. That'll be pretty sweet.

As for the love life- Mike and I are still together (yay!). No ring yet though! A million people have asked me that recently...I'm not sure why. But yes, just so you all know we are not engaged...yet. *wink*

I've basically decided that buying books is a HUGE rip off! Last semester I spent over $300 on my books and do you know how much I was able to get back?? 15 FREAKIN' BUCKS! Grrrrrrr I was not very happy about that. Oh well, at least this semester my books only cost about $200. That's a little better. And, <EM>hopefully</EM> I'll be able to sell them next year. That would also be nice. Very nice indeed. *Sigh*
 
Well, I'd say that's about it for now. I'm going to go find something to do...maybe.

ps. Classes start tomorrow. :)

7/15/05 10:44 am - Nothing to do today...I love it :)

*sigh* Work has been getting to me lately. It's stressing me out quite a bit...I just keep telling myself that it's only a few more weeks though. So, I think that I'll make it.

My life is pretty lame these days. All I do is work really...how exciting. Oh well, again, it's only for a few more weeks...I'm starting to get nervous about college. I'm all worried that I'm not going to get all the paper work in or that I'm not going to do my loan right or something and then I'm not going to be able to go! However, I think that's really just some sort of paranoia...so I should be ok. *grin* I got my room mate's name in the mail yesterday. She's from South Colton...I'm not really sure where that is...her name's Hannah. Hopefully that works out ok.

I got a new mug at Starbucks yesterday. I collect mugs. I always buy them at Starbucks when they're on sale. I, however, did not buy this one. Mikee bought it for me. He's a sweetie.

Yeah, so basically my life's so lame that I don't really have much to update on...oh I know. I got the wire taken off of my bottom teeth the other day. My mouth is now officially metal free. Very exciting. I have to wear this clear plastic thing that is perfectly shaped to my teeth. It's kind of cool. I only have to wear it at night which is nice. With my retainer and my shell in I sound very interesting to say the least.

Alright, I'm outta here. Micheal is coming over soon so I should really take a shower...I think I smell...:) Peace.

6/28/05 10:40 am - So much to do and so much time but no motivation to do it

Yup, that's basically the story of my life. Well, not really. But, when I do have time I don't really want to spend it doing things that need to be done. ..

Anyway, I haven't updated in a while. Not that that's abnormal for me. haha So, what have I beedn up to? Well, work (as always). My hours at Wahls were raised...not to mention my pay was raised. That's always nice. As for Heritage....I think that I'm quitting there soon, but I still haven't decided. Well, I know that I'm leaving there in like August due to school, but I haven't decided if I should go back on breaks and next summer and all that. I'll have to see. Dance is over with so I'm not teaching there anymore. That's kind of a nice break. So, I'm slightly less busy than I was in the fall...but not much.
Um...our church moved into it's new building. It's pretty cool. It's also kind of weird though. Everytime I go into the sanctuary I'm like "I used to play basketball in here". It's slightly strange. I wasn't even there for the first service that we had which was kind of sad. I was in PA with the Humphrey's so we all missed it. It was reallhy sudden though. Like two weeks before we moved Pastor Mark was like "We may be out of here as soon as a month from now" and next thing I know we're moving out. We found out on like Tuesday that we had to be out by Thursday. That was interesting. Everyone pitched in though. I couldn't help because I had to work but I wish I could have. The most I've done around there is painted one wall. That was fun though.

The next exciting thing that's happening in my life is Houghton. I move in August 26 :) Very excitied about that one. Other than that I'm just waiting for summer to be over...hm...never thought I'd say that. haha Anyway, I need to run to Wal-Mart so I'm out of here.

I finally figured out the comments things! Yay for me *Grin*

6/5/05 01:06 am - He looks so cute when he sleeps :)

Mikee is asleep in my bed and he just looks so cute. I hate to wake him up...of course...if I don't wake him up I can't go to bed. That could be a problem. :-/ I suppose that I'm going to have to wake him up then.
Gees...I'm very hungry, but I'm not going to eat because it's 1:00 in the AM and it's very unhealthy to eat at this time. So I guess I'll just have to wait until I wake up in the morning. Alright, I'm out. :)

People make me so mad. We're so stupid. You see some of the decisions that's people make or that you yourself make and the only thing that comes to mind is "How dumb can you be?". We're so selfish. We make all of these choices based on what we want and what we feel with absolutely no regard for others. It disgusts me. I am including myself in all of this by the way. But, it really does and I have to say that it seems to be much more apparent in certain people. And parents really piss me off (not necessarily my parents), but the ones that make all fo these decisions that they think have little or no effect on their children, but really they're basically screwing them over for life. It's so horrible. It makes me very angry.

Anyway, that was my little tangent. That isn't really what I was planning on saying when I thought about updating...there's just things going on around here that are upsetting me...not to mention others. But, yeah, I was going to say that it's very depressing when you look back at where you were and then look at where you are now and instead of being like "Hey, I've grown and matured and really just come a long way." You're like "Wow, how did I end up here? When I was back there looking ahead this isn't where I saw myself." Lately I just feel like I've regressed in the past year or two. My life was going in a good direction and I have a good relationship with God not to mention with others around me and now I feel like I've taken quite a few steps back. The annoying thing is that I can't even pin point a place where I can say "Oh, there it is. That's where I made a crappy decision. That's why I am where I am." There's just all these liitle things that seem trivial at the time, but I guess when you add them up they're not trivial after all. And now I'm stuck backtracking and then trying to get back to where I once was...even though by now I should be way past that and have moved on to "bigger and better things." Whatever that means...It's so frusterating...

5/30/05 10:28 am - Long time no see

Well, hello to everyone that actually reads this...which I don't think is very many people.

Well, I went to Welcome Weekend at Houghton which is like a little Orientaion thing. It was fun :) I got my laptop which I am writing on right now *grin* As a side note- Lael is dancing around on Irene's bed in her bra and underwear singing "Behind Hazel Eyes" bye Kelly Clarkson. Yes, you may feel bad ;) hehe just kidding Laellie! I love you!

Anyway, welcome weekend...it was cool. When we got there we had to register and all that stuff and that was kind of long and boring...then after that we had a little picnic then we went into the chapel and they welcomed us. After that the parents all went and did something and all the rest of us went out to Quad and played all these stupid games. They were those kind of games that are stupid but still fun, so that was interesting. So yeah, I'm going to stop giving you a play by play of that. I'll just tell you the jist of it all :) I got to sign up for all of my classes which was awesome. The earliest(I just re-typed earliest like 7 times because it didn't look right. It still doesn't look quite right) class that I have is at 9 and that's only 2 times a week :) My earliest class on Monday, Wednesday, Friday is 1:15 :) Super cool. I signed up for a class called Intro to Visual Arts...but I don't know if I really want to take it...I think I may call an dsee if I can take a music theory class...that would be cool. We'll see how that all works out.

I'm getting nervous about college these days-nervous and excited. First of all this will be the first time that I've ever gone to any type of school. Well, besides like visiting for a day or whatever, So that may be interesting to get adjusted to. Also I'm like terrible at making friends. It takes me a looooong time. Which, isn't always bad because then the friends that I do have are very good ones...but yeah, that will be interesting. I think that I'll be fine though. We'll see. Mike knows tons of people so I should meet people that way too.

Ugh, I am so sick of work. I work like every day and a lot of times I work at like 2 or even 3 of my jobs in one day. I worked 30 hours just on Saturday and Sunday last week...don't ask me how I even managed that one. I just keep telling myself that I need to money for college and I only have to work my butt of for a couple more months...*sigh* I can't wait to leave for college.

Alright, that's all for today folks. Catch you later.

I'm so excited. I'm leaving for South Carolina next week. It better be warm down there...that's all I have to say. My mom, Jenny, Mike and I are all going down there to visit my grandparents. I haven't seen them in such a long time. I think you start to appreciate people like your grandparents more as you get older. When I was younger I was just kind of like "Eh, whatever", but I actually miss them these days. So that's the new, exciting news for the moment.

Dude, I got a huge (well...for me anyway) paycheck this week. :) It was like 270 bucks. I worked like 42 hours at Wahls last week. Not to mention the hours that I work for !Impact and for Railroad Mills. Yeah, it was a tiring week, but it was worth it. College is so expensive...grrrr. I'm kind of getting nervous about college these days. Like, I'm super excited about going, but the money and the homework are starting to make me a little nervous. Hopefully I will be ok though...I think that I will be.

Hm, I can't think of anything exciting that's going on. Oh wait, yes I can. :) Tomorrow is my friend Melissa's bridal shower. I'm so excited. I haven't seen her in so long plus some of my other friends that I haven't seen in ages are going to be there. I went shopping for her present today. I got her some candles and stuff and some sexy lingerie. ;) haha It was fun. Hopefully she likes it all. I lost the invitation that says what colors I needed to buy for her...that was sort of annoying. Oh well, hopefully I did ok.

Alright, well, I've already run out of things to right about so I suppose I will be heading out. Ta ta

2/20/05 10:44 pm

Work is stressing me out a little bit. Today was especially a pain at TW...grrrr. Being a manager is a little annoying...but it's not too bad. Dude, by Thursday I will have worked 10 days straight...not cool. I'm so tired. :( Bah, oh well. I'll live. I'm going out with Nicki tomorrow and that is always a nice thing so I'm excited about that. We don't have dance tomorrow. I'm actually a little dissappointed about that too. I wouldn't have been, but we didn't have it on Thursday either. poop. Not like not having dance gives me a break anyway because I told Julie that I'd work Monday night. stupid me. Ok, this whole entry is just dumb...I should go to bed but I need to clean my room and I want to see Mike when he brings Henry home so I may just stay up. stupid me again. ok, good night.
