Summer Fun

Hey, its been a while since I've written on my blog as my friend BreAnne (sorry if its spelt wrong!!) reminded me. We just got back last night from Parma for my cousins reception. I had a blast talking with people. I got to hear some really funny stories. It was really nice to get a way from home and not have any responsibilitys. I didn't have to do my friends paper route for a few days which was really nice. I did find out that I have to do the paper route in the morning on July 4th. It makes sence when I think about it, but that doesn't make me any happier. I guess I should be glad I don't have to do it all summer and find a sub for when I'm at EFY and girls camp. I would hate having a paper route as a reall job. uggg. Its not really hot or anything (most of the time) because the route is really shaded. It just gets kinda boring and its a long walk to and from my route. The main road I take to do the paper route was under construction when we left for Parma so I had to take a round about way to get to the beggining of my route. Hopefully it will be taken care of. Who knows.

Catching up

I had a really weird last day of school. I got the stomach flu. It was probably a mix of stress from finals, too much sugar and possibly partially raw sausage. So yeah, I was throwing up all day. NOT fun. So the next day I went in and finished my math final. It was really weird to go to school during summer break. I did good on it though. I got an A in the class!
I will never get used to Moscow weather. It SNOWED today. And its summer vacation. How weird is that. It snowed this morning then turned into rain. And whats even weirder is that this isn't abnormal. That is snows in the summer all the time here. One of my friends said it snowed on the 4th of July. Creepy. All I know is that I am never living this far up north again. Yeah, its pretty, but I like my seasons too much. I am ready for 80 degree weather, not 40.
I did manage to get a job though. Its not an ordinary job though. A friend of mine and I go and clean a person in our ward's house every tues. Today was our first day, and I had fun. I don't mind cleaning other people's houses (as Lora and Ian know :) ) and I was with a friend. She pays us 8 bucks an hour, which I think is really good. And for the next month or so I am doing a friends paper route while she's on vacation. Its in the older part of town, so the houses are all really interesting and all very different. And all the trees are really big and shady, so if it decides to warm up I have shade. But I am hoping to get my dad to drive me around if I pay him 50%. He already told me he would, but he doesn't know how long I'll be doing the route. I didn't know till today. So who knows how long that will last. I'm just really glad to be making money again so I can buy some books and clothes I've been wanting. And possibly a lamp to light up my very dim room.

i only have two more days of school, and I am way excited! I have my Math and English finals left and thats it! I do have to present a slide show, but thats a piece of cake. In all my other classes I'm not really doing anything. Watching movies basically because there's nothing else left to do. I mean, what do you do in band when you have no concert to prepare for??
This summer I'm planning on trying really hard to stay busy and active. I want to go jogging about 3 times a week and I really want to work on getting rid of my acne. I don't have it bad, but it still drives me insane!!
I also have a lot of books I want to read, so I need to save up the money to buy them. I would normally just check them out at the libary or borrow them, but neither option has the books I'm looking for. I will try to borrow some books to see if I can find any new authors I like. Right now I'm saving up for the last two books of the Green Rider triology. I got the first one for Christmas and fell in love. So did Annica and one of my friends. I have the money to buy them, its just a matter of actually getting my parents to sit down and buy them online, then paying them, then getting my change. (I only have a 50 dollar bill)
And I want to check out the swimming pool here. I didn't get to go last summer, so I really want to see it. My parents bought a season pass, so I don't think that will be a problem. The problem will be not going if its really lame.
I hope that my dad takes me out driving this summer too. He might be really busy, but I've been looking forward to it since Feb. when I was old enough to legally learn. Ohhhh, I'm so excited! Only two more days till summer!!!!
