I wish my mind could puke.

I found this in one of my old journals. I wrote it on April 5, 2007. I can still relate to some of it today. It's not very well written, but it made me smile a little because. . . with growing up, and living in a new place, and getting ready to go to college, and doing clogging, and choir, and drama, and being in a family I still know the feeling. . :) That's all.

I wish my mind could puke

I just wish my mind could throw up.
It's way too full!! If it could throw up,
it would feel so much better.

I have so many thoughts. I. . . I don't
even know what to do with all of them!

They're running and screaming,
kicking and biting.

It makes me sick.

I don't know how to control all of these
confusing monsters. They make me feel
joy and peace one moment, and lost
and befuddled the next.

If my mind could throw up, I could
expel of of this confusion and have
a new slate.

I wish. . .

I wish my mind could puke.

Jerome Prom

Needless to say... I had an enjoyable time at the Jerome Prom on Saturday. :)

My date picked me up at lunch time, my group met at his house, we ate pizza, and then we played kickball and capture the flag. Way fun :). Ha, when he took me home that afternoon, he almost gave me a hug goodbye. It made me giggle a little bit. I got home at 2:27 PM, then got ready for the dance. Monica, my cousin, was a lifesaver and she helped me curl my hair! I was so glad she was able to be there to help me out. :) My date then picked me up from my house, we went to the grand march (where we're introduced to the town in our fancy clothes at the high school) (weird), dinner, the dance...where we danced and danced and danced and danced and danced and danced! It was fun! Oh! Don't worry, he did give me a hug when he dropped me off that night.

Sorry, I don't have too many details, call me or something if you want to know more. I do have a picture! But... no one in my family took pictures, so I only have what was on my school website, and... my date isn't even in the photo... Sorry!


Thank you, Monica, for helping my hair work! :)

*Sigh!* :)

Today, was a good day in the life of a 17 year old high school girl with brunette hair who's name is Becca. :)
I'm not going to lie. . . It started off rough with some poor communication between her and her parents...but they cleaned up the mess and things got better.

Good parts of Becca's day include. . .
  1. She got to school like. . . 15 minutes late, and her teacher said, "Oh, don't worry about it."
  2. That happened, because a good friend was a peach and passed on the message of Becca's lateness. (Good thing her teacher also thinks Becca is a great girl and student!)
  3. In 2nd Period, Speech, Becca and another friend had a jolly time playing Harry Potter, watching other people's speeches, and being silly girls.
  4. In 3rd Period, Becca completed and handed in her 7 page research (senior) paper! *Phew!!* That was a hearty weight off her shoulders!
  5. At 12:30, Becca went to the dentist to find that she has perfect teeth! Hallelujah! There have never been ANY cavities in her permanent teeth!
  6. After going to the dentist, She got to go to Gma's for lunch! It was a splendid visit :). Grandma gave Becca her favorite drink. V8. Yum :). Grandmas always know what will make a girl's day. Becca also got a hug, and a good chat. :) Splendid.
  7. When Becca got back to the school, she got to talk to a cute boy. They got to laugh together.
  8. Becca had an intense dance practice for the musical. It was a great workout, and very enjoyable. It's also fun for her to see some of her favorite Jeromie Homies.
  9. After play practice, Becca got to go to mutual with some great girls!
  10. After mutual, she got to come home and eat frosting with pretzels in her mother's gracious company while watching American Idol.
  11. Becca just feels good today :)
  12. She'll top of her day with a scripture study, and a splendid sleep!

*Sigh!* What a great day for this 17 year old high school girl with brunette hair who's name is Becca. :)

Throw up.

I got new shoes today.
Fancy shoes.
They cost $47.
THROW UP!

I walked out of the store, and almost wept.
I've never paid more than $30 for shoes that weren't running or clogging shoes.
This is a very new thing.

I had to call Mary for therapy.

She said it was okay because...
They're shoes I'll be wearing at prom.
And to church.
All the time.
They match all my skirts.
They'll match my clothes for a long long time.
They'll be worn till they're dead.
I don't have any other high heels.

They're a shiny cream color.
They're the firs pair of high heels I've ever purchased.
Throw up.
They're cute.

Ugh.
High heels.
I'm cheap.
Good thing they're cute.

Typical. . . :)

I was rummaging through my room the other day when I found this photo. . . :) I laughed for about seven minutes. When being scanned into our computer, our hands got cut off, but just so you know, Mary is holding my wrist. Typical. :)

Mary has always been one of my very best friends. She's been with me since day one. (Or two...but who's counting?) Whenever I need a friend, she is there. We giggle, we argue, we play, we cry, we dance... :) Sometimes, we're practically the same person, and it's a little creepy... Ha, that usually happens because... I just copy her. A lot. Mary is really an inspiration to me. She shines brighter than anyone I know. I get a pretty hearty amount of my light from her.

Dear Mary, I love you. :)

Mother Teresa's Final Analysis

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
...Forgive them anyway!

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
...Be kind anyway!

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
...Succeed anyway!

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
...Be honest and frank anyway!

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
...Build anyway!

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
...Be happy anyway!

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
...Do good anyway!

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
...Give the world the best you've got anyway!

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

After giving my speech for a class, a girl asked me if I had ever read Mother Teresa's Final Analysis. I hadn't. . . but today, I did, and it is splendid. :)
