I finally have my baby!!! I got my iPad this morning! He's 32gb. His name is Braedyn, and he's perfect! I'm so excited! I've been messing around with it all day trying to figure everything out. As of now, there's really nothing that I don't like about it. I've heard a lot of complaining about the typing, but I haven't had any more trouble with it than a regular keyboard. I'm going to be buying the Zagg keyboard/case for it though, just so it'll be easier for writing papers and whatnot. One thing I wasn't too happy about was that it didn't even come with anything as a means of protecting the screen. Regular iPods come with that sleeve thing to protect the screen. So I don't know if I'll be taking out of the house before my case thing comes.

I've been crazy busy the past few weeks. Sorry I haven't been around. Blogging is kind of my stress-reliever. Maybe that's why I've been so cranky lately. my boss thought would be a good idea to give me over thirty hours this week. It's not really a bad thing. I definitely need the money. I just don't have time to work full-time. I'm a student. I can't do it all. I need a vacation. Since I'm not going to Europe now, I'll have to settle for somewhere a teensy bit closer. Is Ireland closer than France? My mom keeps promising that we'll go to Ireland with the tax return. I have a feeling that's not going to happen. Which is fine. At this point I'd settle for a good massage, ya know?

I'm just rambling now. Sorry. I'm really out of it. I keep thing about the double I'm working tomorrow, and I'm really not looking forward to it. I haven't worked a double in almost a year. Anyhoo, I'm not going to make you suffer through my randomness anymore. Have a good week, my loves! Peace and love! xo

Why can't I just Graduate?

Who would've guessed that graduating would be so complicated. Oh yes, it's so much more then just walking across a stage and taking your diploma. Especially when you're homeschooled. There's meetings, and photos, and voting, and activites. There's no year book commitee. Each person gets their own "memory page" and it's their responsibility to get it sorted and sent in on time. And each class has to vote on their own class color, verse, hymn etc. I thought that was the difficult part, but we knocked that out within a few hours at the first meeting. Now, I have to find at least a dozen photos of me with family/friends, doing activities I participate in (which is pretty much nothing--I really don't do anything like sports, or band, or dance, or anything like that). As if that's not bad enough, all my pictures are on my computer...that died. So now I have to find a way to get my pictures off of Facebook, which is proving to be impossible. So I don't know what I'm going to do. Oh and I have to fill out this sheet that has my favorite color, Scripture, song, artist, author, drink, food group etc. Honestly, who can actually pick a favorite song? Oh and by artist it means actual art. That wasn't too hard. I love impressionism so obviously I went with Monet. But other things like favorite pastime? Or Dream job/career? I can't even figure out what I want to do next week. There's no way I can pick a dream job! *sigh* Oh well... that's what I've been doing today. My mom told me today that if I want to take the ACT in February, I'm going to have to pay for it...$75. I don't have $75! I have to buy a passport. And find $1300 by February or I can kiss France goodbye...I haven't even kissed it hello! Which means I'm going to be working every chance I get.

Despite that, I have high hopes for 2011. I've been waiting for this year for at least 4 years. It promises to be the best year of my life thus far. It better not let me down.

Well, my break's over. Back I go. yay.

Hello my Loves! I hope you all had extremely wonderful holidays! Mine were quiet, but good. Relaxing. I'm sorry I haven't been around much. I could say I've been insanely busy. That's what it feels like. But thinking back to the past few weeks I haven't done anything. I've been busy with...going to Walmart. Doing Laundry. Reading. Things that are so mundane, but things that I just don't really have time for during school.

Okay, okay, I've been doing lots of other stuff too. I got to spend time shopping (the first time I bought myself new clothes in at least six months) with my best friend. I hadn't seen her in a while so it was good catching up and goofing off. I've been spending a ridiculous amount of time at Starbucks. See, I got $35 worth of Starbucks Gift Cards for Christmas, so now I don't really have an excuse not to go, right? Let's see...oh! I've been reading this really good book! It's The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks. I only have about a hundred pages left. It's just starting to get good. Unfortunately, we all know Nicholas Sparks, am I right? I mean just look at The Last Song, A Walk to Remember, Nights in Rodanthe, and  Message in a Bottle. Those didn't exactly have a happy ending. What is his deal? Whatever happened to "happily ever after"? So, I'm a little worried about the ending. But who knows? Maybe Sparks will redeem himself. Fingers crossed.

My computer officially bit the dust. I was using it the other day and it randomly shut off. I figured the battery died, so I got up and plugged it in. I turned it back on, and the lights came on for a few seconds, then it shut off. I tried several times. It's like it was mocking me, "yeah, I'll work for you. wait JUST KIDDING! Mwahahahaaha!!" That's what I get for not naming it...c'est la vie. On the bright side, I know have a legitimate excuse to buy my iPad, right?? I'll have enough for it in a couple weeks...but then there's the whole.. what about a car? and you're still going to Europe, right? You need to save your money! Sigh...I'm thinking about time travelling back to 2001...anyone wanna join me?

That's about all I've got for you. I'll be back. Ciao! <3
