Well, my coach gave me a candy bar for my bruise. I forgot when I was typing my last blog entry, but she said that if I got a bruise she would give me a candy bar. It was a very yummy Butterfingers. The green is finally starting to show. The grass is green and a few flowers have bloomed. But only a few trees are getting blooms. I think we don't really have a Spring here, but that it goes straight to summer. We had stake conference today, and that was really good. The Stake Presidents talk was really good. He's a doctor, and he really incorporated that into his talk.
We are doing our standarized testing this week in school. Because of this the school is trying a new schedule. I really like it and its a lot like my old schedule in Colorado. We have our first class of the day every day for 70 minutes, then our other classes every other day for 90. We have one lunch period instead of two, and don't have to be in the cafeteria. We can also be in certain classrooms to do home work or the gym. They have half of the bleachers set up where you can eat and talk. Me and a friend of mine often just sit there and eat our home lunches instead of going into the cafeteria. It gets very loud and crowded and hot in there.
I can't wait for this summer. I'm saving up for a lot of books. And I'm hoping to get a job. To help pass the time and to earn money for college, clothes and other important things. The most likley job I'll get is a newspaper route

Its been a while since I've written. Softball has kept me really busy. We aren't the best team. We've won only one game and the seasons almost over. But hey, we are improving a lot. Friday at practice someone accidentally hit me in the leg with a softball. It hurt really bad, and now I have a big purple bruise on my leg. OUCH!!!
Jenna got babtised this Saturday. And I went on a youth temple trip that day too. So I had a spiritual high yesterday. It was really nice. I really needed that temple trip. My life is really stressfull right now. I'm home practically only to eat breakfast, do homework and sleep. LOTS of fun (sarcastic voice). I'm kinda ready for softball season to be over so I'm not so tired and I can actually see my family. I have even started dreaming softball. Not cool. I love the sport, but I do NOT want it taking over my life. At least the seasons close to the end.
I am very excited about my grades right now though. I have a 4.0 for the first time since 6th grade. I've always had at least one B instead of all A's. Usually its math. I hope to keep it that way. It shouldn't be too hard seeing its the last quarter before summer!
Ohhhh, I can't wait for summer! Its all I can think about. I'm going to EFY with my friends from Colorado. I'm meeting them in Las Vegas, spending a few days with them then going to SLC on the same plane w/ them. I can't wait!! I just need to get some summer clothes, including a swimsuit. I've probably outgrown all my capris and I didn't have that many shirts at the end of last summer that fit me. I should probably do that while there's still good stuff in the stores....
