8 Crazy Nights

I am still working on moms gift. Me and dad got in a fight last night. I was so confused about homework I just got really frustrated and took it out on him. He may get sent home from work because they don't want to pay him overtime [he is a mail carrier]. I guess tonight we are going to grandmas to give Cortana her gifts. I just want everything to go alright today.
Josh's mom may not come to the show with us. She got in a car accident a few weeks ago so if she doesn't feel up to it, his grandma is going to come.

Working Hard Or Hardly Working

i have decided I am going to do something else for mom for Christmas. I am going to take all of her photos and make them into slideshows and just put them in her video folder on the computer. that way, she has them in another format all put together nicely. I am not going to get too fancy editing becuase she likes things simple. Plus, if her friends see the photos in that format they may want prints.
The first one is compressing right now. it is almost 26 mins long but I think i did a good job. =]

Day off

Oh jeeze. I have a day off kinda. I took all of my tests yesterday so my day is kinda free. I am still going to be busy. Another list is to follow:
type up homework for Composition 2
clean room
write out list of gifts
find pictures
sweep
redo Aunt Sandy and Autumns gifts

oh boy...

This time of year

For us here in our household, Christmas time gets super busy. There just seems like so much is happening. [prepare for another few lists, i seem to like them lately.]
Dad: gets home from work late because of all of the packages. [he's a postal worker] pro though: gifts from customers.
Levi: Coming home with Cass for Christmas
Cass: See above! [and they have cats now so I am an aunt to fuzzy little things]
Mom: Working crazy hours
Leah a.k.a. me: Has to put up tree [although dad most likely will.]

Now for the list of people I have to buy for
Mom
Dad
Levi
Cass
Aunt Jill
Nana
Papa
Joey
Jake
Cortana
Xander
Drake
Dom
Taylor
Anna
Grandma
That is just the list I get for now that we draw names on moms side and don't get any for anyone but the kids on dads side.
Nana and Grandma are bold because I have about half of their gift. We got them frames and I have to find pictures to put in them.

I kicked butt!

I only have to finish my final for my class and then all of my assignments are finished! I wanted to get them done before my subscription for Microsoft Office and such ran out. I hope I don't get in trouble for turning them in early. I just wanted to cover my bases. The final is a bit difficult but I can finish it soon.
Plus... tomorrow is Thanksgiving and that is always a busy day. People ask my why it's busy because we don't have it at our house. We had it at our house last year and it was crazy busy. We always go to nana's and papa's and then we go to dads side. Dad hosted his side last year [as i stated above]
There are only going to be 10 of us at Nana's tomorrow. Levi and Cass and down in Illinois for Thanksgiving.I get a bit frustrated when I try to contact that wonderful brother of mine because his sister-in-law always calls him brother. It's just a bit difficult because I feel like they have a better relationship than we have and I had 19 years with him in my life and she had 4. grrrrr.

Questions answered and Unanswered

I got feedback from the teacher. She told me I should uninstall the program but that seems a little difficult to me seeing as though it is just a free trial. Also, the trial expires in about 2 weeks. I am so unsure about what to do.
I finished a mini album this morning. It's just kind of plain and smile but I think it's cute. I have also prepped my pages for my flower mini and my butterfly mini. Mom is going to look through some pictures with me today so that I can hopefully make some copies so that we can have them Saturday.

More school drama

I wanted to get a jumpstart on homework but I can't.... I am supposed to make forms and reports with the form & report wizards on acess. There is one problem.... IT WON'T WORK! Yeah... this really sucks bad. I am not sure what to do. I have already posted about it though so hopefully i get help soon. A few of my friends have Access on their computers but I can't get to their houses.
Yeah today is going to be a long day...

Ran around a lot

The morning started out normal. I had breakfast and all of that good stuff. Dad and I left at about 11:30. I attempted to eat a sandwich I made but it just didn't taste right. Prior to that, we found out that one of our cousins passed away. When grandma called, i could tell it in her voice. He was my grandma's 1st cousin. Anyways here is what we did:
Post office: mailed package to Canada
Pharmacy: picked up dads and my perscription and got a free candle [they had a customer appreciation thing]
Library [got 9 to 5 the musical soundtrack, Love will keep us together [book], and The OH in Ohio
Credit Union: put refund check in savings
Blockbuster: got Leap Year, 500 days of Summer, Fame, and Post Grad
Taco Bell/KFC: had lunch
Oil Change: only took like 10 mins
Aunt Sharon: bought 2 skirts and 3 pairs of pants 2 pairs of jeans 1 pair black pants
Office Depot: got mouse and envolopes
1st place for water softener salt: not successful
2nd place for the same: see above
Aunt Brenda's: they weren't back from running arrends yet
Home Depot: see a few posts up
3rd place for water softener stuff: no longer there
Back to Aunt Brenda's
Out to dinner with grandma and Aunt Brenda
Home
We didn't get back until 8:30 I am a bit tired but it was nice to get out to do stuff
I hope I get to go to Aunt Jill's because I have homework to do on her computer this weekend

Busy next few days

I didn't get to write yesterday! I was up in my room getting stuff around for the crop on the 20. It takes me a while to find all of my stuff so I am prepping a week early. I am going to go upstairs soon to reorganize the reast of my stufdf and maybe move furiture. I can't really move much of it but thats alright.
Tomorrow me and dad have a lot to do:
go to library
Post office
Credit Union
Aunt Sharons to buy some clothes
blockbuster
and grandmas.
yeah.....
plus the water treatment guy is going to come and fix something. for some reason, the water has been turning purple sometimes.
Dad also had to get the side of the van fixed... oy.

Frustration and Shopping

I slept through the night without waking up at weird times. I didn't go to bed until 11:30 because I attempted to watch Conan. It was good but I was just too tired to watch.
As I type, I am yawning, feeling the effect of sleeping from 11:30 until 6:15 this morning. I am glad I got up early though because the roofers got here at about 7:30. yeah... I think they will be done today but I am not sure. I was planning on taking a nap but I don't know if that will happen.
I think im gonna need a nap because of not much sleep plus today at 4 we are going into town to go shopping and then see Grandma. I am going to try on stuff Aunt Sharon set aside at the consignment store she works at. I may pick up some other clothes too if they are cheap. After grandma's, we are going to go to blockbuster and I get 5 movies for my birthday. They are running a 5 for 20 deal right now so im pumped.
I need to get around the 30 dollars for mom by the end of the week. The difficult thing is she isn't going to be home today. I also need to have her put my refund check from school in my account. It's a joint account with her so she can put it in for me. I hope she will. =]

Accomplished!

I feel very productive today. Although I am still in my pajama's. I am most likely going to stay in them all day. I will explain why:
Daylight Savings is mesing with my head. I went to bed at about 8:30 and woke up at 11:00, p.m. that is. Then I took a shower for some reason. I wasn't feeling too great, I just felt gross. So after the shower came about 2 more hours of sleep. I woke up at 1 a.m. to our neighbors dogs barking like crazy. I turned on a movie and went back to sleep. Then I woke up slightly at 4:30 and it was pitch dark, as usual. Went straight back to bed thwen and woke up again when I heard mom downstairs putting away dishes.
So... if I did not say this in an earlier blog, we have a mouse... or maybe mice. We have set out poison 3 nights in a row and it has all been eaten. So i am kind of freaked out about being here alone. When I got up to take my shower I felt dirty like one had crawled on me which I know was just in my head but still. At least one of them should be dead by now. They aren't attracted to the sticky traps which surprises me. But anyways,
I woke up at 6:30 to start my day, ate breakfast, checked e-mails, watched about 10 seconds of tv, and then started crafting again. I couldn't help myself. At 8, I called the dentists office to cancle my appointment for today. Mom wouldn't have been able to come get me.
I took two tests and got 95 on one and 94 on the other. yay!

Sorting things

I am sorting stuff I am going to take to the crop. I have to get pictures printed within the next few weeks. Well... week. I want everything prepared before the week of the crop. I am super excited. Most of the projects I am going to do are partially finished. here is a list of what I am going to finish:
Paper Towel Mini
Anna's 1st birthday Mini
Hanging Picture holders for Autumn and Aunt Sandy
Really, all I need are:
pictures
Eyelits
Clasps
rope or chain to connect the hanging frames.

I am going to see if I can get some stills of the boys for Niki's pt mini. The paper is already on them. All they need is pictures and eyelits so they can be connected. I need clasps (circle rings) so I can put the pt minis done nicely.

Saturday, November 6, 2010

I didn't get it

I called the coffee shop and they have their starting staff already. They say they may call me in the near future which is exciting.
I already turned in all of my homework and did all of my reading. I am worried that my Microsoft subscription is going to run out. I'm worried that I may not be able to complete my class.
Sorry that my writings are so short I just have so many tiny topics to talk about.
Someone came and dropped off a garbage bin so that they can trow our roof away! Yay! [not really.] Hopefully, we may be able to throw away things from upstairs that we can't recycle. Since Levi has known the roofers daughter since grade school maybe they will let us.

Friday, November 5, 2010

Urgent! Help! Only 3 weeks to LIVE!

Still waiting

I am so nervous. I didn't get a call yesterday. If I don't get a call by 1 p.m. i am going to give them a follow up call. They did let me know that they will be hiring again soon before I left to go see mom yesterday. I called Aunt Sharon yesterday to have her set some pants and belts aside for me. No matter what, I need to get some new pants and stuff for interviews or work.
Dad told me that we have a mouse.i guess it was roaming around last night. I don't want to run across it. I hope he gets some sort of trap or something today. I mean, I hate the poison stuff because i always have to sweep up the rest but I have mice.... That is one thing I hate about living in the country.

Thursday, November 4, 2010

It went...

It went well. Mom dropped me off at 8 a.m. even though my interview was at 9. I walked in and asked if I had to fill anything out. The guy I talked to on the phone was there so we did my interview then. I was done by about 8:20. We covered a lot of stuff. I got a ride from the other manager to meet mom at the elementary school. She helps with Kindergartners 2 times a week. I helped out until we had to leave at 10. They were cute kids.
After we came home I did some homework and now I am just updating yall. I am most likely going to take a break from homework to write a bit but I hope to have all of my homework finished by tomorrow night.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Second post in one day

Okay so I have big news:
I HAVE AN INTERVIEW TOMORROW! At 9 a.m. I have an interview for a coffee shop. I am pretty jazzed. Many of you may not know this but... i love coffee! Coffee is amazing. I no longer drink caffinated coffee but decaf is pretty awesome.
The manager called me and said he had an interview time open at 9 a.m. so i am going to have it then. How many times ave I said it is at 9 a.m. That means i have to get up before dad leaves so I have enough time to get ready. Mom is going to drop me off at about 8 maybe. I only filled out the online application which means I may have to fill out more paperwork so going early is okay. I wish some of my friends lived in the town where I am having my interview so I could hang out with them but no such luck

No longer doing NanoWriMo

Too much is going on right now for me to do Nanowrimo. I need to do a lot of things including finding a job. I did start selling baby hats at a local store but I haven't sold any.
I am going to check with some friends and see if where they work is hiring. Dad is most likely have to go to the Secretary of State today. If I feel up to it... i will possibly go so I can get my state ID.
I kind of broke down again last night. Dad keeps saying that I am using him as a crutch. If I didn't have to I wouldn't... trust me. Before the accident I felt like I was kind of Independent. Well i guess not since then dad had to take me everywhere because I was 14 but I could go in stores without panicking or I would go to football and basketball games by myself after he would drop me off.
People have told me to write out everything and I have but it's not like it's something I can get over. I have written about it in some many different ways... oy vey. I have a lot of things to do today.
Homework
Transfering numbers to my new phone
laundry
getting ID?
maybe taking the test for my permit
Finding a way to get my medicine.

Speaking of medicine, people have also told me I may have to go on Anti-anxiety or Anti-depressants. the thing they don't understand is that when you have epilepsy, it can take a while to find something that works. Also, some things could cause me to have seizures.
As I stated before, the job thing is also on the list.

Happy Halloween

It's Halloween! =]
we are going to Nana's for a birthday dinner for her. She turned 83 on Wednesday. I feel kind of bad though because none of the other grand kids get birthday parties but since my birthday is 2 days before Nana's, its kind of like a party for me too.
I haven't read my second chapter for my class but I think I will be okay. I am going to take 2 tests at Aunt Jill's if we get back before trick or treating starts. They will be pretty easy I think. I may take my second book for my final test just in case.
I am finally wearing makeup today... the only part that didn't come out well was the mascara. it's kind of clumpy but I fixed it. Nana likes it when I wear makeup so i did. =]
I am waiting for my batteries for my camera to charge. if they don't I will have to take some cheap ones. I will also take my charger so they can finish charging at Nana's
My camera has been acting strange. I may need a better one. So I may get a better one, a cannon most liekly. Or maybe another flip... So many choices. It's just the batteries work and all but sometimes I have to take them out and put them back in to turn it on...

Gonna be a bit busy

Today I am still cleaning the house. I swept the dining room and kitchen today. I don't know what I am going to do the rest of the day. I may just go upstairs and read for a bit or something. I have 1 more chapter to read for class.
Sorry for this update being so small.

Friday, October 29, 2010

I'm back

These past weeks have been kind of hectic. I got all of my homework done by Wednesday this week which was nice. I am uploading a few videos to youtube right now but I have more cleaning to do. I am focusing on my room today. I have decided to do a project a day. That doesn't mean just crafts though, yesterday, I guess you could say I had tiny projects. I prepped some projects while I organized things. Pretty much all of my stuff is now in my room.
Yesterday I:
Cleared my craft stuff from the table
Did 3 loads of laundry
took everything of mine out of the living room
took everything from the computer room
took care of recyclables
sorted my craft drawers
finished off 2 hats

today i am focusing on the rest of my room and vacuuming.

Home early

We came home early this morning. I think it was about 1 a.m. Dad felt kind of weird staying over. Levi, dad, and I are all that way kinda. It rained down there so the move was kind of crappy. The house is really nice.
I guess the weekend before we came, the boys painted the living room and got paint on the hardwood floor.
Cass and I went to Meijer and got beer and soda and chips.When she paid for the food I had to stand by the door because they have a policy I guess about buying beer when you are with someone who is below drinking age.
We got pizza for lunch. It was good warm but not cold. Dad decided to leave at 7:30 their time and I didn't fight it. I got to go on a nice walk with my brother before we left. I miss him lots!
I didn't get out of the car when we stopped for gas so I wasn't too comfy on the way back. We went to McDonald's and got drinks and burger king to get food. I got a chicken sandwich but didn't eat it all. I had to throw it out. I should have gotten a whopper. Oh well...
So we stumbled in at 1 a.m. and I went right up to bed. once my head hit that pillow I was out.
Woke up at about 9:30 this morning. I was irritated by some weird noise in my room last night. I think it was a bug or something... ehhh.
I have already taken a short walk this morning. I dropped off the treats for the boys and taked to Heidi for a bit. They are all grown up. -sigh- I am so tired though still. Heidi did make me a cup of coffee which was very nice. We figured out I have known them for 9 years... how nuts is that!?
I have to take my tests today. My birthday is tomorrow and I don't want to take any then. =] I may hang out with Aunt Jill tomorrow. I just need to get out of my house tomorrow. I don't want to waste my birthday!

Friday, October 22, 2010

I love downtime

Not like I should really have any... I am just taking a few seconds to write something here quickly. I have been super busy with school, crafts, reading, writing, and planning the trip to see Levi and Cass this weekend. It's only going to be about 24 hours but its all good. I am so excited!
When dad comes home tonight, I will have to help dad put the coffee table and chair in the van. I will most likely put my big bag in the car and save toiletries for the morning. Cass called last night and asked what kind of cake i wanted. I'm not really picky but she wanted specifics. So as far as i know, I am getting a funfetti cake with vanilla frosting. I was wondering why she called though, I just feel like my brother should know what kind of cake i like.
School is making me go nuts. I am just wishing that I had more chapters to read so i didn't have to be in front of the computer all of the time. The teacher isn't very helpful but I have talked to a few of my classmates which is nice.
It is freezing in Michigan but we are trying not to use the heat much. especially since the heat just rises to the second floor. Most of the time when I am home alone, I don't go up there. my hands do get cold easily so here I sit in my warm hoodie and pj pants.
I am in pjs because im not gonna go anywhere tonight. I have to get everything on my list done and maybe a few extra things.
=]
yay for trip this weekend!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

The second week starts

I am almost through reading unit C but i am stuck at a part i wish i wasn't stuck at. I have to do Unit D as well as chapter 2 of a separate text book
This weekend we are going to go down and see Levi & Cass. Monday is my birthday so i hope I can do tests while we are down there.

Haul from Michael's & Joanns

Here is my haul video from last weekends shopping spree at Michaels and Jo Annns

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Oh boy...

So I told myself I am finally going to start my homework for my computer class. I am almost finished but there is a problem.... it asks for us to comeplete a memo but there is no memo template that will download to my computer. I think I know a way to get one but I am so confused!
The discussion topics finally worked yesterday but I only posted once so I have to post 3 times within the next few days. I have some more videos to upload.
I am so glad that I have rechargeable batteries because I went through both sets making videos within the last 24 hours.
I need to make breakfast or something.
Oh... I started writing a book, just a silly love story, but still. I am writing this bad boy by hand.
and I got Autumns coasters covered. I still need to find a way to attach and hang them but I can do that later.
Nana and I are going to go to a scrap-booking crop. Nana has no idea what she is getting herself into. I mean, I haven't ever been to one but I have seen... and she may get a little overwhelmed. I hope not too overwhelmed. Its nice though. it only costs 5 dollars without food and drinks. It is right in my Aunts trailer park too so she said she would bring us food. I don't think Nana will be able to last 12 hours but I may go until 9 or so. It starts at 10 a.m. and goes to 10 p.m. The nice thing about it being close to my Aunts house is that it takes about 30 seconds to get to where it is by car.
Mom was supposed to bring me a blanket to tie for Dominic for Christmas but she forgot it at Nana's
I am going to upload some videos to my youtube channel today. That is where all of the videos I post come from besides the short ones. I can upload those directly to the blog.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

I'm trying

My computer class makes sense now. I am taking a break from homework because I don't understand some of it. I wish I could e-mail my teacher but the school website is down. I would love to post to DT's when I have questions but since its not working I can't. I got in contact through facebook with one of my classmates and we have been able to ask each other questions.
I would try to use moms computer but it doesn't have the software on it. Oy... it is almost noon and I have been up since 6:30. I haven't done anything but homework today
Here is a project that i am working on. I am doing the second set, the set for autumn, today and then i will have to find a punch to go through the coasters so i can hang them.

Progress and a set back

Bus Law:
read 3 chapters
answer 3 cases
do a 3-5 page paper

Management:
read 2 chapters
Critical Thinking
Project & Teamwork assignment
2 Cases
Online assignment 1
Online assignment 2

Only technically 3 assignments left. doing them all today most likely. I did all my book work yesterday morning, well typing it anyways. My paper is about half done and I am going to finish it hopefully.
Yesterday, I got the news that an old classmate of mine died. it is kind of hard for me to even think about. she was found dead. that is all i can really say. she didn't do it herself most likely.

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Progress so far...

Bus Law:
read 3 chapters
answer 3 cases
do a 3-5 page paper

Management:
read 2 chapters
Critical Thinking
Project & Teamwork assignment
2 Cases
Online assignment 1
Online assignment 2

The assignments in italics are finished but not yet typed. I have been cleaning my room and making piles of stuff. A lot of my old stuff is going to be donated to a place not far from here. All of the profits from that store bring funds to local festivals and such. For christmas for the little kids, I am basically going to be giving them hand-me-down type of gifts. I am making sure they are in good shape. I will make a video later showing what I mean. There are just some things I don't want to store that I think the kids can use.
I need to start wearing my glasses but I can't seem to wear them when I read or use the computer. it was never that way before.

Monday, October 4, 2010

The week begins

It is about 9 p.m. and at 1:00 tomorrow morning, my last week of Business Law and Principals of Marketing class begins. I have already written down all of my homework and reading assignments. Let me break it down:

Bus Law:
read 3 chapters
answer 3 cases
do a 3-5 page paper

Management:
read 2 chapters
Critical Thinking
Project & Teamwork assignment
2 Cases
Online assignment 1
Online assignment 2

Grr.... I think it would be much easier for me to manage my Management class if the assignments were turned in separately....

Sorrry I haven't written

I have been studying like crazy all week. When I wasn't studying, I was getting sick. Weather in Michigan is horribly cold this weekend so I may just finish my homework, tests, and paper. Then I am going to get started on constructing a mini album usuing paper towel and toilet paper rolls.

Dom's 1st birthday

Today is Domonics first birthday. Which means 1 month until I turn 19. He is the youngest out of all of the little cousins. If I can get some pictures I will post them. I will try to get video too.
Went to a coffee house last night with Josh & Jeff to see Meghan Tonjes. AMAZING! She is the first youtube person I have ever met. Plus, I didn't have a panic attack. At one point i did get really tired. It's not my fault I like going to bed at like 9:30... okay i guess it is.

Friday, September 24, 2010

Editing videos

I am puting together videos today while I write a final paper for my business law class. I need to edit videos not only for my blog but it is a good escape for me. School is gonna be crazy. I have to complete 22 months instead of the 14 they told me. maybe I understood them incorrectly. I may be going to hang out with Josh tonight. oh boy... long day ahead

Crafts from Monday


These are some crafts I made yesterday. I have to do homework all day. good times!

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Sorry

For the lack of blog yesterday. I was trying to figure some stuff at the house out. Also, I contemplated new crafts that I could try. I almost went to Aunt Jill's yesterday but it didn't happen. Dad wouldn't have picked me up until really late though and Aunt Jill deserves a break.
I started making knit flowers this morning. Here is how I did so:
1. picked out yellow yarn
2. used spool knitter

3. knitted 20-30 rows
4. wound it up into flower like pattern
5. stitched together with left over yarn
6. insert button in middle.

It didn't turn out too great but I found a different way to make them as well so I may do that.

Friday, September 17, 2010

More quilts

This entry is gonna be short again due to the fact that I have to do 10 homework assignments and research for a paper today.

First Quilt to show

Nana & Aunt Jill made me this for my high school graduation 2009
video
They made a few like it but they say mine was the prettiest. I have a feeling it is because of the yellow border.

Long time no blog....

Hey all!
I haven't blogged in a while. I have been super busy. The format, or subject matter actually, of my blog may be changing. I may use this just to talk about projects I do. This may include my knitting, scrap-booking, and other crafts. so I thought I would talk about how I got into crafting. I may also make a video about this on my youtube channel. I have been thinking about making a crafting channel for a while too. Let me know what you think!
I have been doing crafts for a long time. Ever since I can remember actually. I'm not just talking about crafts you make in school... My grandma and I hung out a lot together when I was a kid. We don't see each other as often as I would like anymore. I love her more than anything in the world.
Anywho, I think the first craft we did was stamping cards. My grandmother [or Nana as i like to call her] is very good at it. She hasn't stamped in a while. A lot of her stamps are from the early 90's until the early 2000's. it's fun now for me to explain clear stamps and acrylic blocks to her... oh Nana.
She has been crafty her whole life. She loves one thing the most it seems, sewing. I have quilt after quilt from her and I love them all. I tried to sew a few times and it hasn't really worked out. The machine kind of freaks me out. She bought me one when i turned 10 and I never used it. I do make pillows out of old tee shirts but she sews most of it for me. I do the whipstich part at the end, not very well I might add.
I have gotten into making ribbon flowers and I am trying to perfect that but it isn't going well. Oy!
Scrapbooking has been my focus these days. I have only made a few but they are fun. I tried to finish my first one in 9th grade and it didn't end well. I should have done a smaller one.
Anyways, I am going to go do school stuff and maybe a bit of crafting. good times.
Thanks for reading!

Writing has come to a hault.

I am SO frustrated.... I am trying to write my book but I only got like one chapter in, so new plan... POETRY! I am going to write poetry and once I get enough together, I can send it to a publisher. Most of my poetry is all over the place.
I mean... each poem is about one specific thing but I don't just write about love, heartache, or happiness. I write about it all. Some of my poems are super short too. I mean, why didn't this come to me earlier???? I have been writing poetry for 8 years or so and i should have thought about this so much earlier!

It has begun!


I have started writing my book! YAY! I am so excited. It isn't going to be a big novel but it may turn out to be a young adult chapter book type of thing. It is going to be written in a journal entry format. I didn't know how I was going to write it and then I remembered what kind of books I liked to read when I was in you preteens and young teens. It would be a fast read I think. =]
I want to talk about books I love.... I have always loved Disney books and young adult books because I like quick reads. Really, thats what got me to write my book in the form I did.

So...


Levi got married. I am making him and Cass a wedding video. I was crappy at the reception. I just didn't feel well. Things were said to me that were not very nice that brought my mood down. I wish I could just redo that night all over again. I think it may have also been because I didn't cry much at the wedding and then at the reception, it just hit me. The picture explains what I did not want to see but oh well... my brother is amazing!
Cass's sister made a toast and talked about how close they live to her and i am not going to lie i was hella jealous. I have always wanted to be the "cool aunt" and I will barely get to see their kids/kid when they have one.
If Levi comes across this, I wrote you a letter that is coming in the mail... read it please. I'm sorry I was crappy. I love you!

Have you ever

Sat down at the table wanting to write something and ended up making a list of all of the stuff you need to do. I think with this anxiety it has caused me to not want to take time for me anymore. I just want to clean my house... which never gets clean I might add... I just wish I could sit down and write poems.... lots of poems. just get them all out and send them somewhere to get looked at ya know....

Snow Snow Snow

There is about 10-12 inches of snow on the ground. It is the perfect time to take some winter photos but I HATE COLD. I don't want to do homework though.... blah. Basically my whole day is going to be homework, laundry, and cleaning.... NO FUN

Tests freak me out

Okay so my 1st week of new classes is almost over.... I took my tests and got a 62 and a 65. Not so good. I thought Psychology was going to be easy but I keep getting terms mixed up. I am mad that my grade was so low in Entrepreneurship because I didn't have a time limit on that one. My assignment grades weren't that bad though. If anyone has any ways that I could keep terms straight let me know.... See, I've blogged three times this month. How awesome is that?
Oh and the Superbowl is tonight... I am conflicted... I like the Saints and the Colts, that's what happens when you live in Michigan and your football team SUCKS. Dang Lions.

Hopes and Dreams

Hey all!
Here I am again. I am trying to get back into the swing of blogging. It is hard for me though because I have been trying to write more of my thought and feelings and stuff with a pen and paper. Ya know... it just makes ne feel better. Like imagine those times when you are just filled with emotion anywhere from happy to sad and you just need to get it out. I feel like if I get it out on paper, I can feel it and it is tangible.
I am also writing my poetry again. I was thinking about writing enough that I could transfer it by typing it and possibly sending it out to publishers. I don't know how it would work because I wonder if they would take me seriously. I have always wanted to be a published author though and I thought to myself the other day, why not try. I have some poems on my computer already so I can just add to them. If I send a lot to a company, I think they could pick and choose some of their favorites and maybe publish it
-crosses fingers-
If you are still interested in any of the books I listed let me know. I will inform you when books no longer are available.
