All Mixed Up

Have you ever had those days where it just feels like a different day? Different days have different vibes. Well all day yesterday I thpught it was Saturday...which means that today obviously felt like a Sunday. Fortunately, *today* is Saturday and I still have another day of weekend left. :D

I've actually had a very packed weekend thus far (which is pretty dang exciting 'cause I've been living somewhat like an old lady lately). Friday night I went to a dance party/birthday party for a friend of a friend. I got home sometime between 1 and 2am (That's late for me since legally I can't drive past 1am...oops :p) Then I had to be at work this morning. After that, one of my friends wanted me to drive her out in the country (Livy lives in the suburbs and says she needs wide-open I said I'd take her out on some of the back roads around my house). We decided to stop my town to walk around a little. We walked into a little Ice Cream shop 'cause ice cream sounded good, for some reason (generally I think the stuff is NASTY). Well, turns out this place doesn't except credit/debit, and neither of us had any cash. So we were just going to walk out and come back some other time when the lady gave us the cones and said, "Go ahead and take them. You can just come back up here and pay us whenever."
Say what? That is why I love living in a small town. I didn't know those people, and until today I didn't even know the place existed. Yet, they were like, "yeah, sure, no biggy, blah blah blah..." I'm going back up there with cash next week to pay them. It totally made my day. :)

Anyhoo, I had planned on writing a little more, but I'm so tired, it's not even funny. And I have Church in the morning so I don't even get to sleep in. Ah bien...c'est la vie

So, good night all! within the next few days I'm hoping to write up a movie review for "The King's Speech". GREAT movie. And I promise to start taking pictures of my life. I always hate reading blogs that don't have pictures...booooooring!! So I'll try to remember to take my camera with me and actually use it. ;)

Hello world. I'm back again...sorry for the unplanned absence. There has been so much going on in my life right the past few's crazy. Have you ever had those situations that are just crappy all the way around, that somehow manage to turn into something really good? That's what I've been dealing with lately. And to be honest, a big paart of it has been no fun. at all. But what came from all of this is incredible. I'm not going to go into details right now, just cause it's really personal...but life is good now, and I'm hopefully going to be posting regularly...but that's what I always say, and it never quite seems to happen. Third time's the charm, right?

So, I'm graduating in 31 days. WHAT?! :D I can't believe how fast time flies when you get old. I remember two years ago when my sister graduated two years felt like an eternity. In some ways it feels like just that. 2009 seems so long ago. I lived a different life then, always trying to change to please the people I was "friends". Then when I finally realized, hey, if they don't like who I am, they can find someone else to talk to...well, that's just what happened. Two years later, I see these people every week, but it's like I never knew them. And I'm okay with

41 days is the would-be day of my departure to Europe. I hadn't realized it was so soon. I have mixed feelings about that. Since we all know how I feel about travel, and the face that one of my best friends is going without me, it'll be hard watching them all board the plane sans moi.'s obvious that I wasn't supposed to go this year. :\

Apparently dear, old St. Louis has been the talk of several towns lately. Last week, we had a really bad storm go through that greater St. Louis area. A bad tornado came through and destroyed several houses, and did a lot of damage to Lambert. I live about an hour away from downtown STL, and during the whole storm, the sun was shining at my house. It's very rare that this part of the region gets a tornado that bad, and the fact that nobody died or was seriously injured is a miracle.

I'm sitting at Bread Co. (Panera to the rest of the world) "doing homework". I'll be honest, I have a hard time taking classes that won't benefit me somehow in life. Trigonometry is a great example of this. Now, I am by no means a 'good student'. I don't push all. I never saw the need since school just comes easy to me. my current GPA is 3.9. The only class I didn't have an A in was Chemistry (my grade was an 89). I'm not a over-achiever by any stretch of the imagination. However, I'm a perfectionist. I'm also very OCD. That 3.9 drives me crazy. Anyway, back to Trig. This class isn't hard. I understand that concepts. But because I don't see the point in taking it, I don't push myself to do a good job. I don't care about trig. I found out last week that I'm failing the class.
whoa. hold the phone. I've never failed a class EVER. Typo maybe?
Nope. It's true. My current grade is a 55%. Now, thankfully a big part of the problem is my homework. My teacher grades on completion, and doesn't take off points for late assignments. So, like any red-blooded American student, I'm very lax about turning stuff in. Now, that everything is caught up, my grade shoold go up to a C. The main problem is the quizzes. we don't have tests, so the quizzes are worth more than half of our grade. And they're short, so if you miss one problem, it costs you about 20 points. Normally, I wouldn't care. I mean, I'm NEVER going to use trig, and it's just one class. However, it's going to really drop my GPA. So, I don't know what I can do in two weeks to fix it...

Other than that, there's really not a whole lot going on in my life at the moment. I'm getting ready to apply at Community College. I'll probably do that next week. I'm so excited about college and just being out of homeschooling, I'm ready to not be around the same people with whom I have nothing in common. (yay for grammar nerd not ending a sentence with a preposition ;P) I guess that's all for now. Today is the perfect day to spend in Barnes and Noble with some chai tea from Starbucks :)
peace&love xo
