[ mood | tired ]

I haven't written in this thing in so long. How crazy..... Well i'm at home while everyone is at school and bored so I figured I would write in this thing. (yeah i'm that bored) So lets see.... I've graduated from high school with 26.5 credits and a 3.6 GPA. I've finally got my license and a car! So i'm pretty excited about that. I start BCC in January; full time student 12 credit hours and everything. And I got myself a job at the Melbourne Mall. It's this new girls sore called Limited Too. It's okay I get paid minimum wage though, so that sucks. ($5.40) But so yeah i'm doing pretty well as of now. I don't really talk to anyone from my school, but then again i'm not so sure I would want to. There were some "characters" at my school. But anyways, i'm excited for Christmas and everything. It's crazy though, i'm having a graduation party in uhh a week then Christmas and then my 17th birthday in January! So yeah i'm pretty lucky in that aspect of my life. I hope everyone has a most excellent Christmas!

   volcom! (hopefully it did it?)

    I have a BLUE shirt on this color at the moment so I guess I'll use this color as well! Sound good... okay done! Sooo it has been a while since I last put anything in here and i'm bored at the moment so I guess i'll just do this.

      I tried to go nighty night earlier but it wasn't happening! (unfortunately) A lot of things have happened or at least I think? This ummm "entry" as some of you so kindly refer to it as may be somewhat random but i'm sure you can catch on! :)

       Yesterday was Fathers Day!! Yay!!! I woke up at 8 AM! whooa EARLY! I went to church with my parents and met TJ there! (sorry if you don't know who he is too bad) It was okay.. not as bad as I was thinking. Then we all went out to Breakfast orr Brunch whichever you prefer at Dennys. lol... my philosophy on this whole brunch thing; once it's 11 o'clock you should order from the lunch section of the menu if its earlier than 11 go ahead with the breakfast! That's what I do at least. Then we went to my casa and had some r&r (rest and relaxation). But then back out to the mall so my mother could pay her Dillards bill and I could but a new wallet. Grrr i'm disappointed in Volcom. I bought a wallet 2 months ago from Pacsun and within 2 weeks it fell apart! It was a downer. Soo now I have an O'neill wallet it's cool but too many pocket things. I could get lost in it! But of course my mother can't go to the mall without buying something for herself so we (and when I say we I mean TJ and myself) were waiting for her to but her little skirt thing. But I had some laughs while I was waiting. Apparently my mother got some kind of comment from a man while she was "modeling" her little outfit to me. So she was all happy about that. OH! and she did pay her bill. Um then we went to Wally World! (Wal*Mart) and bought lotsa food for the dinner we were having. That wasn't as much fun because yea too many people for me. I think we were there for almost 2 hours! Then we went back to my casa and hung around. Then my grandparents and friends of the family came over to have dinner and socialize. After we ate they did the whole present thing. Then we went swimming. (watch out I may disgust you with my fat lol cover your eyes!!!) Around 9:30 or so we drove mister.TJ back to his casa. On our way home from there on the highway there was a bad accident in the left lane. A red SUV was totally flipped over!! I felt bad hopoefully no one was terribly injured?

      You know what I have come to realize though.... Is I have a terrible problem with remembering things. But it's only like a short-term type of thing. Like I remember something you said or did a week ago. But if you ask me to do something and I don't do it in 10 minutes I totally can't eveb remember you asking me! It's honostly pretty bad and it annoys me and i'm sure other people as well. Hopefully it will pass. Orrrr i'm just turning into an old fart at the age of 16. Anyways! Some people have been commenting on the fact that "I don't take like too seriously" Honostly now what kind of question is that? I didn't think life was meant to be taken serious? My thought were that it was supposed to be fun and enjoyable? But apparently I was wrong.

    I have been going to the doctors' a lot. For different things here and there. But we won't get into that. Right now I think I have a cold or something? I've been coughing and had a stuffy nose a lot.... My mother has me on these "herbal supplements" how hippie like! Damn those hippies!

     I want my license already! I hate not being able to do what I want when I want to do them. And being confined to doing one thing a day. It's ridiculous. I have a little over 100 days left until I can take "the test" lol! I just realized that I have a month and a week left of summer vacation before I have to go back to school. I go back August 2nd! Too early I think. I'll only be there for one course... Algebra II damn that subject! It sucks because now they have 2 schools one in Palm Bay and one in Rockledge or "Rot'ledge" And yeah since I live in Suntree I would have to go to the Rockledge one. And it's just a bummer because all of my friends/aquaintences are at the Palm Bay one. Sooo that basically means that I have to make new friends and it will be completely new teachers and setting! I'm not going to like it. I hate feeling like the new kid or the outcast it's just an uncomfortable feeling to me. But yeah the school I go to in general just sucks. I think.....

  A week from this Friday I leave to go on vacation in Orlando. Not too far but that's a good thing because I hate being in the car with my family for long periods of time. We'll be there for a week. We're going to some water park and canoing, and tubing. It should be somewhat fun. And sometime in August we're making the big drive up to Tallahassee to help my brother move into his apartment and what not. Hopefully this year we'll be able to go to more football games! Thankfully this is Rixs' last year there. (Chris Rix is FSUs' QB)(quarterback)  Yupp!!

    Well I think this is good enough..... It's a good information source of what's going on at the moment! So have a good morning/afternoon/evening/night!! (pick whichever one applies to you at the time!)

It Has Been A While Grass Hopper [21 Apr 2004|12:49pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Its been a while.... I'm still very angry wiht my parents for making me graduate in December instead of May. I'll have like 26 credits when I graduate, who needs all those extra things? And now my mom's convincing me to do Dual Enrollment at BCC. But I told her the only way I would do it is if she let me go to the Palm Bay campus so I could go with my friend Angela. So you know I would know at least one person there... Plus there are probably some other kids fromm my school there... who knows? So yeah I guess that's whats happening. Holy mother, okay i'm doing this SAT prep thing at some learning center thing and for one it is waayyy to expensive!! 700 DOLLARS!!!!! that is just crazy nuts! But yea they give you three SAT tests to see if you're improving and okay the first time I got a 770 (hahaha yea I suck, I know) and the second time I got an 810! So i'm proud I increased by something. I was afraid I was going to be the loser in the class that decreased. But it still makes me feel dumb because all the other kids are in the thousands. But on the other hand they've had like years to prepare and have been taught these things and me well not so much. Hah! This is going to be the first week in a while, that i've gone to school the whole week!!! I'm so proud of myself. I should tell everyone about my week lol. Okay Monday I took my last math test something like a Mastery Test. I got a 75 I could do better but I decided to just take it and roll with it. Yea so after that, I just sat around and talked to other people. And I did that very same thing on Tuesday and today! I guess i'm distracting others but I dont have anything to do because im basically finished with school. Yea annddd I fouund out some things at school too. I'm telling ya you dont go for a few weeks and you miss everything. Next Saturday my brother comes home for a LONG time. He's going to be on summer vacation. And I also have to get up all early and go to MI High to take my SATs! So yeahh..... Well I think i've written enough in this thing. I'm glad the school year is over. Well almost over lol. I need a new phone!

PS- OH YEAH! today my friend Ericsson brought Benoit balls! hah those thigs are awesome! lol you know what those things were used for back in the day.... If you don't, just look into it if you must. But yeah I had some fun with those things, just trying to swirl them in my hand.
OH! this crazy kid came back to school to get his diploma and I was scared. Because he would tell me some disturbing things that he wanted to do with me. So I tried to stay clear of him.

When you have nothing to do at school, my school can actually be fun!

Yea, so i'm working on this whole updating everyday thing. Even if nobody cares to know, I figure it will give someone in this world something to read. Anyways... this is what I know this far;
*Grampy is living with us for a while
*We've got 11 people coming for dinner tomorrow
*Have to get up early and go to church
*Have SAT prep on Tues. Weds. and Thurs.
*Need to finish my math units by Thursday (no later)
*Need to finish my Spanish II no later than April 31
*Dad might be moving to GA for a year
*Eric(brother) is coming home May 1st for the summer
*Have to finish re-modeling the office and Grampys room
*Need to look into Florida Medallion Scholarship before SATs and Graduation!
*SAT date May 1st
*Have to find a job for summer before the end of April
*Have to start saving money for car insurance and college expenses
*Ginny comes into town from NC

With all of these things to think about and to act upon it doesn't look like i'm going to be having any free time to myself anytime soon. Hopefully things will get better once everyone is more adjusted to these new situations.

Have you ever just had one of those days or nights where you just sit around and think about stuff from a long time ago like 3 to 4 years? I find myself doing that every now and again. I find it to be somewhat odd simply the fact that I can remember it all. I mean I have a hard time remembering what I did just yesterday so it honestly is a mystery to me. I think some of it may have to do with the fact that many people get in kind of a contemplative mood towards the end of their school years like relfecting on the year the good or bad. I've realized that for some reason all the people I've had as friends don't stay my friends. I can't figure it out. Not to sound concieted but I honestly believe that i'm a good person and i'm not self-centered or selfish.  It seems I have really good friendships for a year or so and then one thing happens or something new comes into someones life and they just drop me like a fly. I then become the person that they talk to whenever they have a problem or they don't have anyone else to hang out with. I've turned into the last resort in a sense. And to be honest I'm extremely sick and tired of being that way. But because i'm too nice to say hey you know what I don't want to listen to you blab on about your life and your problems so just shut up. That's just not me. I guess what it comes down to is I feel like people take advantage of the fact that they know they can talk to me and I will always be there to listen. But there have been some people in my life that totally take it to a whole other extreme. Like they'll call me and tell me oh i'm so worried about so and so or i'm so mad or im having relationship problems and whatever and talk for an hour and then once I say one little thing like yeah I remember once that happened to me there like oh well hey I've got to go or something like that. It's like once the spotlight isn't on them they don't want to talk and or listen anymore. Which I think is complete bullshit! (excuse my language)Many people tell me I should just be tough and stick up for myself and the second I start to be like that nobody wants to talk to me because all of a sudden im being a bitch. Just because i'm starting to act more human. Like they way I used to be before I was too perfect in a sense. Not "perfect" because I know that no one is perfect. But like nobody ever saw me be angry or sad or pissed off just happy and making people happy. And I was always giving and helping others. But the second I stop being that way they think i'm a bitch because they got so used to me being "unreal" if you will. I don't know... I'm starting to think that when I get older i'm not going to have any old friends to talk with and share stupid little memories. Either that or all the friends i've had will no longer be and the friends I will come to know are the ones from College. I'm just so unsure of things at this moment. I guess I'll have to wait and see. This is meant to offend anyone and isn't directed to anyone imparticular so please do not take it personally it is not meant to be taken in such a way.

P.S. My granfather is back inthe hospital for the third time. The poor man hasn't been out of the hospital since Jan. 15! we're going on 3 months!

WOW! I would have to say, it's been a while since the last time I wrote in this journal thingy. But I guess that could be a good sign, because that shows that I don't think that this is my life, which it's not. But yeah anywho..... I can't really catch everyone up with all the details because to be quite frank I don't remember much. I'm 2 credits away from graduating; 1 Spanish II credit and 1 math credit. I'm almost out of school! Thank the Lord. Being at the school had to have been one of the worst things in my life thus far. My Spring Break reakky sucked, I was stuck doing my homework all week so I could meet the stupid graduation deadline. And then the one day I decide to go out and do something I get a friggin' injury. I somehow tore a few little legements in my leg. But thankfully I didn't need surgery the DOC. said that it should heal on its own with wearing a brace and continuous PT.(physical therapy) Through all of this you could kind of say that I have been alienating myself from other people because I seem to get somewhat distracted when I start to get involved with the "hanging out" aspect of things. And as many people have pointed out to me I don't have time to get side tracked if I want to graduate. And  I've got some pressure as it is. I've got teachers and some prinipal lady continually telling me that they don't think I can graduate this year and my mother telling me "I've paid for your cap and gown which might I remind you was $70.00 so you're going to graduate because your school won't refund that money. " But they're convinced that that in  itself is no pressure.hah.... I think not. But whatever im going to get all my crap done so I can get out of this hell they call high school. And then i'm off to none other that Beer Can College!!(BCC) Im extremely excited about that one! (NOT) I've started to go to this SAT prep class thing I've got to got 3 times a week for 2 hours a day working on math and verbal. I went once thus far and its boring as hell! Not to mention they totally mis-lead you when you sign-up. They tell you they give homework but its only 5 problems. Well.... to my surprise yes they do give out homework but its more like 5 pages! I thought to myself "this is worse then regular school!" But whatever i'm going to do it because if I dont my moms going to shove the fact that she paid $500.00 for this and that I somehow owe her. Thats kind of how she always is. Always wanting my to succeed in things more so athletically then academically and when they shell out money for surgery x-rays tutoring school and what not and I don't follow through they use it as a black male and to make me feel guilty. I dont know. Can't wait for May 1st to come because then I can take the stupid SAT's and no more school and just me being a bum until the fall semester at BCC. Excited about when my brother gets here because he's cool and we get to do cool shit and hang out and just be cool. Well this had been a whole lot of typing and I have to go to stupid PT and then even stupider SAT prep. Oh yes and I am off my soap box now!

I don't love the world right now.

I Miss My Old School! :( [11 Mar 2004|12:35pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Cocoa Beach rolls into final

Minutemen run over No. 1 Pace

LAKELAND -- Cocoa Beach's boys' basketball team walked into the history books Wednesday and on their way, the Minutemen kicked defending state champion Miami Monsignor Pace to the curb.


Cocoa Beach’s Braxton Williams, left, tries to block the pass of Monsignor Pace player Ian Gibson during Wednesday’s Class 3A semifinal game at The Lakeland Center.

The Minutemen, making their first trip to the Final Four since 1975, demolished No. 1-ranked Pace, 62-31, in the Class 3A state semifinals at The Lakeland Center and earned a berth in the championship game for the first time in school history.

"We're pretty excited right now," Cocoa Beach's veteran coach Mike Gaudy said. "We've just done something that's never been done before at our school. Right now this is the most fun I've ever had -- seeing these guys here getting ready to play for the state championship. It's been a goal from the beginning, but it's hard to believe it's happening."

Ranked No. 2 in Class 3A, the Minutemen (28-2) will meet St. Petersburg Catholic for the state title at 3:30 p.m. on Friday. The Barons (29-2) and ranked No. 5, defeated Havana East Gadsden 66-55 in the other semifinal.

Cocoa Beach's triumph against Pace, which won three state championship since 1996 and 19 of its last 20 games, was pure domination. It left Spartan coach Mark Leiberman wondering if the nightmare would end.

"I'm waiting to wake up in the middle of the night and find out it was all a bad dream," he said. "Nothing went right for us from the beginning, but you have to give credit to Cocoa Beach. They did everything right. Their kids are tough."

The Beach kids did it just the way Gaudy drew it up. They were patient in their half court offense and defense and they showed great composure.

Pace came with relentless full-court pressure from the get-go, but point guard Braxton Williams frustrated the Spartans by getting the ball up front and the Minutemen passed and passed and passed until they found somebody open for a shot.

"I have a blister on my foot for the first time in three months," said Williams, who had 15 points and five assists.

Said Gaudy: "We've been very lucky because every team we've played in the region played just like Pace did. We've seen the same style and we've prepared for it in practice."

That preparation drove the Spartans bonkers.

"We couldn't dictate the flow of the game and the tempo of the game which we're used to doing," Leiberman said. "Our pressure full court wasn't working and we weren't getting turnovers for the shots we're used to getting."

But the Minutemen were getting shots and it was all because of their style of play.

Gaudy, who brought 10 Cocoa Beach girls teams to the Final Four but won only one championship (1988) said he learned something from all those trips.

"With the girls' teams we were always full court, man-to-man, in-your-face pressure, but I noticed that didn't win many championships," he said. "And I noticed the teams that were winning championships were playing half court, so that's what we went to this year."

"We knew if we passed the ball, we would have the open shots," said senior guard Carl McNally, who led all scorers with 18 points.

And if the Cocoa Beach offense was effective, the defense was even better. Held to its lowest point total of the season, Pace totaled only 18 points the final three quarters.

"I thought we played hard for 32 minutes and defended well the entire game," Gaudy said. "We made only 14 turnovers against a lot of pressure and we shot very well (59.5 percent)."

Pace, on the other hand, shot only 26 percent from the field and committed 21 turnovers.

Cocoa Beach led 19-14 at the end of the first quarter, but took a comfortable 14-point cushion at halftime after outscoring the Spartans 13-4 in the second quarter.

"I wanted to just play on and not have halftime," Gaudy said. "I was scared to death they would make a comeback."

The Spartans tried, but it was feeble effort. The closest they could come in the third quarter was 11 points and when Cocoa Beach withstood the challenge, it was lights out in the fourth when the Minutemen had a 21-7 margin to pile up the final 29-point cushion.

Gaudy finally removed the last of his ironmen top seven with 50 seconds to go and the scoreboard reading Cocoa Beach 59, Pace 32.

"That was the first time I felt comfortable the whole game," said senior Tim Haars, who had 14 points including two crucial 3-pointers in the opening quarter

Congratulations!

Grammar Fuhrer
You are the grammar Fuhrer. All bow to your
authority. You will crush all the inferior
people under the soles of your jackboots, and
any who question your motives will be
eliminated. Your punishment is being the bane
of every other person's existence, because
you're constantly contradicting stupidity.
Everyone will be gunning for you. Your dreams
of a master race of spellers and grammarians
frighten the masses. You must always watch your
back. If only your power could be used for good
instead of evil.


What is your grammar aptitude?

Gatorade is Good! [05 Mar 2004|01:50pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

HELLO! HOW IS THE WORLD DOING TODAY? GOOD?, WELL THAT'S JUST SWELL.  THIS MORNING I AWOKE TO SOMEONE RINGING MY DOORBELL! GRRR THAT MADE ME A LITTLE UPSET. BUT I SUPPOSE IT WAS OKAY SINCE IT WAS ALREADY 11:00.... BUT YEA SO I GOT UP TO GO SEE WHO IT WAS AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW, NOBODY WAS THERE!! BUT THEN I PONDERED ON WHO IT COULD HAVE BEEN AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,"IT WAS PROBABLY THOSE  JAHOVE WITNESS LADIES" FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT THESE LITTLE WOMEN DO(HA THATS A BOOK NEVER READ IT BUT I KNOW ITS A BOOK) THEY GO AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH THESE LITTLE PAPER BOOKS WITH INFORMATION ABOUT GOD AND CHURCH AND WHATS WRONG AND RIGHT...AND THEY RING YOUR DOORBELL AND TALK TO YOU FOR A GOOD 10 MINUTES ABOUT IT. IT'S KIND OF A WASTE OF TIME SEEING THE ME NOR ANYONE IN MY FAMILY IS A JAHOVA WITNESS!!! BUT THE LADIES USUALLY LEAVE THE THINGS IN THE DOOR AND I OPENED OUR DOOR AND NOTHING WAS THERE SO THEN I WAS A BIT CONFUSED AS TO WHO OR WHAT COULD HAVE RUNG MY DOORBELL? AND STILL TO THIS VERY MOMENT I HAVE NO CLUE AND I SUPPOSE I WILL NEVER FIND OUT... LOL

YOU KNOW WHAT I FIND VERY UM UN-CURTIOUS IS WHEN YOUR PARENTS LEAVE THE HOUSE WHEN YOU'RE STILL SLEEPING AND FAIL TO LEAVE YOU A NOTE OR WAKE YOU UP AND TELL YOU. I MEAN I DONT WORRY ABOUT THEM OR ANYTHING BUT ITS NICE TO KNOW WHERE THEY GO. I DON'T KNOW MAYBE THIS IS JUST ME..... I GUESS I WOULD RATHER THEM LEAVE WITHOUT TELLING ME THEN WAKE ME UP IN THE MIDDLE OF MY SLEEP. I HAVE TO SAY THAT IS ONE THING I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT SLEEP...IS THE FACT THAT SOMETIME OR ANOTHER YOU HAVE TO GET UP. I SERIOUSLY LOVE TO SLEEP BUT THATS JUST BECAUSE OF MY HEALTH THING.... ITS LIKE IF I DONT GET ENOUGH OG SOME KIND OF NUTRIENTS I GET REALLY TIRED AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS SLEEP SO YEAH. A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST TAKE IT AS I'M LAZY LOL WHICH IN SOME CASES IS TRUE BUT WHEN IT COMES TO ME SLEEPING A LOT ITS NOT. BUT I NEVER FEEL LIKE I SHOULD HAVE TO EXPLAING MYSELF IN SUCH GREAT LENGTHS TO PEOPLE I KNOW PROBABLY DON'T EVEN CARE. BUT ENOUGH ABOUT THAT.

I REALLY WANT TO GO TO WARPED TOUR THIS SUMMER! THERE ARE A LOT MORE AWESOME BANDS THEN LAST YEAR....(IN MY OPINION)HOPEFULLY I'LL BE ABLE TO GO IF NOT SOMEONES DEFINITELY GONNA HAVE TO MAKE IT UP TO ME. LOL NOT REALLY THAT JUST MEANS I'LL GO NEXT YEAR I'M SURE I CAN HOLD OUT UNTIL THEN. YOU KNOW WHAT SUCKS THE MOST... IS WHEN YOU GET SOMETHING STOLEN! HERE'S THE SCENARIO EVERY MORNING WHEN I GO TO SCHOOL I LISTEN TO MY MP3 PLAYER BECAUSE MY DAD AND I CAN NEVER AGREE ON SOMETHING... AND THEN WHEN HE DROPS ME OFF I LEAVE IT IN HIS CAR ON THE DOOR.(YA KNOW HOW THERES LIKE A LITTLE HOLDER THING ON THE DOOR WELL IN THERE)  AND THEN WHEN I WENT TO GO GET IT OUT OF HIS CAR A COUPLE DAYS LATER SO I COULD LOAD NEW SONGS IT WASN'T THERE. SO WE LOOKED EVERYWHERE FOR IT AND IT COULDN'T BE FOUND. AND SO WE CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT SOMEONE STOLE IT BECAUSE MY DAD DOESN'T EVER LOCK HIS DOORS.(WELL HE DOES NOW) SO MY MOM IS GOING TO CALL THE INSURANCE COMPANY TO GET LIKE A REFUND THING ON IT SO I CAN BUY ANOTHER ONE. SO I GUESS EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY.  LOL I'M UNDER THE IMPRESSION PEOPLE LIKE TO TAKE THIGNS FROM ME. WHEN I WENT TO COCOA BEACH I GOT SO MUCH STUFF STOLEN FROM MY LOCKER(S) LIKE MONEY SHOES CLOTHES WALLET CELL PHONE PERFUME C.D.'S C.D. PLAYER LOCK? I MEAN GEEZ THATS A LOT TO GET STOLEN!! AND NOW I CAN ADD AN MP3 PLAYER.LOL OH WELL I'M NOT GOING TO DWELL IN THE PAST.

I WROTE A LOT TODAY, AND THE DAY ISN'T EVEN OVER HOW AMAZING! OH WELL.. I'M WORKING ON UPDATING THIS THING EVERYDAY LIKE MOST PEOPLE DO.

Hi There [04 Mar 2004|04:37pm]
[ mood | tired ]

I realized that I never really have anything too interesting to say in this thing. I think its because I choose not to write about conflicts that I have with other people or certain kinds of gossip. lol the only thing I write about in this thing is my life. Ehh its horibble!~ Dude, like a couple days ago I talked to a old boyfriend I had like 2 years ago, it was really weird just because I didn't really know what to talk about and what not. But I don't think I will be his friend just because he seems to be so self-absorbed ya know? Uhh my brother is coming home from FSU tomorrow for his Spring Break the lucky kid.... But my mom said that I might not have to go to school that week so I can hang out with Eric. YAY! Dude I know most people hate their siblings er whatever but I love hanging out with my brother! He's so awesome. I mean other people may think differently but that's okay! Umm my Grampy is yet again back in the hospital! Gee I hope he gets better soon so he can be happy and full of life! Um we think he's probably going to live with us once he re-cooperates. So we will have to re-arrange our living arrangements or sell both his house and our house and buy one big house.... who knows? I think I am DEFINITELY going to quit soccer, it doesn't really do anything for me. I love the sport and the whole competiveness in it but i've been playing for so long. And i'm not one of those people who wants to make soccer their job otherwise i'd continue playing. So I think this weekend is going to be my very last weekend with having anything to do with soccer. School is becoming more and more strssful as the year winds down. I know that there are others that are in the midsts of taking FCAT, well I don't have that. But i'm trying to make the May deadline for graduation. I just got my "academic report" in the mail today and so far I have 19 credits. I need 5 more before May 1st er something. 10 weeks.....AHHH you have no idea how bad i'm stressing. Although I try my best not to show it because well that's just how I am, I don't show emotion too well. But the one thing I think that is going to keep me from my goal is my Spanish I and II. I need 2000 english to spanish words for my Spanish I credit and 1000 english to spanish sentences for my Spanish II credit. Too much!!! On top of all of this here are some other things I have to start looking for or thinking about... getting a job, taking my SAT's b/c I dont have time to do the PSAT's, enrolling in BCC to start the Fall semester, and wether or not I want to go to a University my junior and senior year or just get my A.A. or MBA in community college and go from there?! I think thats a lot for a 16 year old to think about. LOL some people dont realize that i'm graduating 2 years earlier then I am supposed to so....yeah! Have you ever had a friend of friendS that liked to joke around with you but it was more like they made jokes about you and thought it was funny but then followed up to say,"i'm just kidding geez" Yea, well I realized this week that that really bothers me for some reason. I just don't find it to be very amusing but I guess its something I'll have to get used to. I watched RADIO today, that movie makes me cey and i'm not saying like pull out the freakin' tissue box i'm just saying it makes my eyes like water over. But i've found that most of those "based on a true story" moves usually do that to me. Like Remember The Titans did that to me too. But those are the only two movies thus far. I know i'm definitely not one of those chick flick type of people either they disgust me. I like the Disney movies though, what can I say I guess i'll never grow out of them. I went to go get my shoes today (Nike Attest) but that didn't have them in the right size so that kinda bummed me out. Well this is a lot of stuff for one day so I think this makes up for the days that i've missed... Oh! I think I might get to hang out with my pal Heather this weekend, I haven't seen her in like 3 weeks!!

My inner child is sixteen years old today

My inner child is sixteen years old!


Life's not fair! It's never been fair, but while
adults might just accept that, I know
something's gotta change. And it's gonna
change, just as soon as I become an adult and
get some power of my own.
