So Jenna and I spent the night together, trying to sleep but not being terribly sucessful. Granted, I slept better than last year. But you would think I would be the one to be woken up last, not the one waiting for everyone else, seeing as how I'm the oldest. Old habits die hard I guess.
Today was wonderful, I enjoyed watching everyone open their gifts. And I got the two things I'd been hoping for, but not sure I would get. Winter boots and a laptop!!! I've been needing one as my computer hogging has gotten worse from all my classes and since I'm graduating this year. I wasn't exactly expecting one for Christmas though!!
I think it's a very nice computer, not that I know much about computers. A little big for college life, but I like having a big screen. It's a hp. That's about all I know.
Thank you wonderful parents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The wonder of hats

I have a few, very cute hats that I wear during the winter. And yesterday, I discovered my new favorite use for the hats. To put all my hair up in it so that none is hanging out. Even though I look slightly boyish, it feels wonderful to not have my hair hanging all over the place. No wonder people get their hair cut short. If only I thought I look good with short hair...... but no, I like my hair long best.

Thursday, December 16, 2010


I have decided that I like my new blog format much better. Thank you blogger for having more than one format.
Winter break starts tomorrow after school. I can't wait.
I love breakfast foods, which is a good thing since tomorrow we are having a seminary breakfast and then the ward dinner-with- breakfast- food -Christmas..... thing. It'll be lots of fun.
I still have to do the majority of my gift shopping. And my homework.
I wish it would snow. (I know, shocking coming from me. But It shouldn't rain in December. At least not this far north.) We need a white Christmas. How does snow the day before Christmas eve sound Santa?
I have decided that Jenna should become a dancer. She had her first recital last night and I was very impressed, even if I didn't like the song.
I can't wait until the news years eve dance. BreAnne is going to do my hair all cute.
A friend who owes me a drawing of Alex Pettyfer should draw quickly and give it to me.
And the guys who owe me cookies should remember, and then make me snicker-doodles, since they're my favorite.
I'm not really sure what the point of this whole post is.
Looking up, I see lots of "I"s. It looks silly.
If I don't post again, *theatrical cough*
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I decided I need a quick break from my homework. I've been doing it nonstop for three days. That's not entirely true, I have slept and had some yummy food. But the majority of my time has been dedicated to staying on top of some classes and trying to catch up in others. I don' t have any time to have senior-itis. So, I decided it was time to write another rambling post before I go insane. Or turn into scrooge. I was pretty close at school today.
I'm not sure what else to say. I have no witty thoughts running through my brain. Only sluggish longings for my bed and a little elf to come finish some of my homework for me. If only someone could do even just one class for me. Just my government final. And my stats project. And take notes on a book I have to read for a presentation. That would be nice. I can do the rest. Please? Anyone?

Saturday, December 4, 2010


If you love a cute story, please oh please oh PLEASE go see Tangled. It is the only movie I've ever walked out of saying I want to buy it. I am so in love with the story. GO SEE IT!
What else do I need to say?

Sunday, November 28, 2010


So I learned somethings about myself this week.
1.) I need a schedule to keep myself busy. Without one I crumble to bits and don't do anything. I will regret it later.
2.) My phone is whacked out. I didn't get texts sent at 9 am until like 6 pm, thus missing amazing sledding parties.
3.) I should have been an ice skater/dancer/ninja. I love ice skating and the elegance of dancing. And being a ninja is just cool. I've always wanted to have super fighting skills.
4.) I love the Princess and the Frog movie. Very cute.

Snow Day Number Two

The weather must love Nathan. It gave us a snow day, just for his birthday. The last no school day was technically because of a huge wind storm, but I'm counting it as number two because I can. Seeing as how we've had two days off in two weeks (both on Tuesday I might add) it makes me wonder..... how many are we going to have? It's only November.
As much as I like not having to sit through boring, time-wasting classes, I'd rather not have to make them up later. So please, not too many snow days.
Even though I love them.

Harry Potter 7 Part one

I went and saw this at the midnight release with my friends. Well, 12:10. The theater was having two showings. My parents thought I was crazy for wanting to go wait in line for longer than the movie's span on a school night. But, since I'm a senior (scary!) they decided to let me make my own choice about it. So I went. What teenager would miss out on that opportunity! It's a whole experience of its own to see a movie late at night.
We waited in line playing scum and munching on candy and ice cream. Not that you munch on ice cream. It was more like slurping ice cream flavored liquid after a while. But still yummy. The line grew behind us until the moment when the doors opened letting us in to watch the much anticipated movie. Our group hurried so that we could all sit together. We took up a whole row. A few of us promptly sat down on the floor to play Uno, one of the best games ever invented. We sang to a commercial too. It played 9 times before the previews started, according to a very annoyed friend. Our poor town is so small that it has only like 5 commercials. So every time you go to a movie its the same ones. This particular one has a catchy tune where a guy is surrounded my moving furniture, ending in a random smile/laugh close up of the guy. Strange. But entertaining to sing to.
Harry potter was a good movie, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had been afraid that it would end abruptly or on an annoying cliff hanger like Pirates of the Caribbean 2. I didn't like the next one anyways. But HP did a wonderful job of ending suspensefuly without making you want to throw your phone through the screen. I wonder if anyone has ever done something like that. It would be very entertaining, but only if it was at the end of the movie. I would be annoyed if they did it at the beginning. I doubt the manager would be as entertained as I.

Stormy night

Last night was very stormy. Strong, fast winds, rain, and I think hail. It woke me up actually. In my fuzzy sleep-deprived mind I wondered what would happen if my window blew in. At first I thought I would run out of the room and shut the door. But, wait, I realized all my things would be ruined. I love my books too much for that. So I imagined myself holding my blankets up against he broken window for the rest of the night. Strange thoughts, I know. This was running through my head at 2 in the morning.
I had just started to fall asleep again when a friend texted me. He was letting me know that he wouldn't be going to seminary the next morning (we carpool) because of the late night. I was annoyed and looked at my clock (don't ask me why.) my clock was dead. The power was out. So I set my phone alarm.
Five in the morning another friend texts and asks if my power is back on yet. I don't reply. I'm trying to SLEEP!!!!!! It's not working so well.
5:45 (my normal wake up time) I get into the shower and text her back. Yes my power is on, yes it is flickering. As I am blow drying my hair ANOTHER person texts me, saying that school is canceled. I run up stairs to the computer to see if this is true. Rumors and all. I open the laptop. Lights go off. Darn.
I sit around for a while, hoping its only a flicker and they will turn back on. Nope, they stay off. I text a few friends to see if they know if we have school. The only place I have service is on the fourth step of my stairs. No idea why. I get the no school confirmed and thankfully crawl back into bed.
6:30. I get text after text telling me school is out. Yeah. yipee. Who hoo. NOW LET ME SLEEP!!!!!
I eventually slept in until 9.
Oh the joy of texting.
Moral of the story: this is EXACTLY why I normally turn my phone off at night.

IT has begun.

Winter has started. We went to church this morning, a slight drizzle was darkening the sky. When we came out of church, it was completely fogged over. Yuck. I expect snow tomorrow.
But, this week can't possibly be a bad week. Because Harry Potter 7 part one comes out. AND I GET TO SEE THE MIDNIGHT RELEASE!!!!! I'm very excited. I'm going with a group of friends, we were lucky to get quite a few tickets. I can't wait.

Woolley life

Today we had Stake Conference. It was a wonderful meeting, the spirit was very strong. The visiting authority was very interactive compared to a normal story. He had the stake pres. call teen boys from the audience to read the scripture story of Meshak, Shadrack and Abindago (spelling is probably very different) and then talk about it a little bit. I did feel bad for the boys though, they looked very nevous. I started getting nervous myself, thinking he might call up some girls too. He had the stake president do something too along with his wife. It was a little bit of an unorthadox talk, but it was very good, he kept everyone's interest.
We spend the weekend at a basketball tournament for Annica's team. They played pretty well. Between two of her games all the kids but Annica (she had to stay with the team) went to see Megamind. It was a cute movie with a good moral, something that always surprises me a little seeing as how bad most movies are. I suggest seeing it to those who love a good cartoon.

I've never much liked this holiday. I apologize to those that *gasp* at that statement. It's just an excuse for people to scare each other. I've decided I would much rather just go by myself a bag of peanut m&m's then go around dressed up as a pirate, or princess, or jedi. Even though pirates are really cool. Thus, my hatred of this holiday has landed me with the job of helping with my ward's trunk or treat's spook alley. I hope there are lots of teens who love Halloween there to help me. They can make it much more fun for the little children than I will be able to. I'd much rather help out with Christmas. I could dress up as Santa, I'd do that MUCH better than pretend to be a mad scientist. Wish me luck!

Amount of time spent on side writing project with friend last week: 15 hours
Amount of time spent on actually ELI last week: like 10 minutes.
Amazing how distracted I can get.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010


So a group of friends and I started this group blog together. And they all have blogs of their own now. It funny to me, but very cute at the same time. We're all following each other now and other such bloggy things. Blogs are just amazing things.
One of my friends just kept saying amazingly witty things today. She was on a roll. That, mixed with my tired brain, made it so I laughed all through lunch and gave my non-existent abs a good workout. Thank you for the work out. I could use a few more of those. I just love wit. Especially when people say things that sound like they belong in a book, but it was spur of the moment. It's just absolutely amazing.

Family Day

Yesterday was a very family oriented day. We went to some town (I have no idea what its called) and made apple cider. It is very delicious juice. What is the difference between cider and juice???? I have no idea. After that we went and raked leaves for the fun of it at the church. We didn't clean them up, just have a leaf fight. That was actually very fun. I'm glad we got to spend the day together.

School year blues

I have the school blues. I don't feel like doing any of my homework (not that anyone ever does) and it is soooooo hard to get up in the morning. I think its the cold. I haven't adjusted to it being cold yet.
But I've started writing again! I go on and off with being able to work on my story. Sometimes nothing feels right, I just can't write. But I'm back on track. Kind of. I'm not exactly working in the places I should be..... but at least I'm writing. And I am still working on my ELI goals, just not in the best order. Oh well. At least it will get done.
So I was going to include a homecoming picture..... but they aren't downloaded on the computer yet. And neither are my senior pictures. So, once again, like all my other posts, no pictures. Lame.

Monday, October 4, 2010


SO I went to homecoming with Tyler. It was quite fun actually. Of course the music wasn't the best quality, but we still had fun. We went to dinner before the dance then went our separate ways to get ready. I had a very cute black and white dress. I like it because I can wear it to formal occasions like a concert. And its just cute. I'll try and post some pictures later.
This week has only two days of school. Don't ask me why we only have two days. I don't question the logic, I just enjoy it. And I have no homework tonight. I haven't had that much this year actually. Except for my book which I am feeling a writers block about. My guess on the block is because I'm doing more technical revising and editing right now, and that's the part I don't really like. If I could write just one copy and have it turn out amazing I would totally be ok with that. I haven't done any real writing in a while, just revising here and there so maybe I'll just write a quick short story, or scene from a story. Just to get the juice flowing again.

The curse of youth

Being young isn't that bad. Except that taste and opinion tastes change quickly. For example my URL. Three years ago, (or however long ago it was I created this blog) I thought the URL was pretty nifty. It was about me, loving books, and easy to remember.
Now, I think it's cheesy. And too long. I would love to simplify it, shorten it, sweeten it up a bit. I'm not sure exactly what to, but something.
I set a goal for myself today. Don't punch (gentle punches. It's a thing I do.) any of my friend. In mock annoyance or flirting. I had to narrow it down to one guy in particular. I couldn't do all of them, it was too hard to remember. And even then I slipped up twice. Sad. So, I'm doing it again tomorrow to try to break my habit. I gently sock them waaaay too often. It's how I express myself I guess. They think it's hilarious to watch me try. I'm the silly one. And I'm ok with that. Except for sometimes. So, no more punching. Maybe.

H2O Madness

As my fb status says *clearing throat* positively, absolutely, NEVER drink a liter of water in under a minute again. EVER. ITS A HORRIBLE, LIFE CHANGING IDEA. I had to go to the bathroom like three times after doing so in less than 90 minutes. And my stomach hurt.
Lesson for the day: don't forget you need to empty a water bottle for class and then remember during the few minutes before class starts. Or ASK what you are using the bottle for. Because we never ended up using them. We don't need them yet.
That's just my luck.

A late Mockingjay

I promised a book review of Mockingjay, sorry it is so late. Now that school has started I am extremely busy. I finished the book quite a while ago, so lets see how this goes.
I thought the book was a very good ending. The author ( I can't remember her name) is a wonderful writer, and whoever Katniss would have ended up with I would have been satisfied with. She's just that kind of writer. I was very sad about all the characters that died, some of my favorites were killed off. But I appreciated that she didn't end the book with an "and they all lived happily ever after". Because no one would after what Katniss had experienced. I'm glad the author didn't make everything all better, she made it realistic. All of Katniss's breakdowns would have happened to any one after such an ordeal. And I have to say I loved that she wasn't a perfect, happy, nice person. She was a real person with real struggles and faults. I loved that Coin died too. I didn't like her very much. The only thing I can think of that I didn't like was that Katniss let her kids play on the group grave. Even though the children didn't realize what it was I would have been too disturbed to let my children play there, knowing old friends were under my kids feet. That's a little creeepppyyyy.
I've been feverishly working on my book since school started. I have a hard time doing my homework I slave over it so much, actually. I just really, really, really, really,really like to write. Especially Gray Eyes.

120th post

I have to say, I don't find it easy to come up with a title for my posts. So I just made this one the post number. Nice and simple. School has been....... school. It's going to be a lot of work, but hopefully I will feel like it's worth the effort. And that at least some of it will be fun. For one of my classes I might be able to include my book reviews as part of it. We'll see. I'll be talking about Mockingjay (last Hunger Games book) as soon as I finish it. Luckily I have a really amazing friend who let me be the first person to borrow it after he finished. Thank you Darrell!!!!!!! I'm very excited about it.

Sunday, August 29, 2010


So, school starts this week. It's crazy. I didn't realize until tonight at the seminary kick-off how much I missed my friends. Like, really missed them. How did I realize this when I hadn't all summer? I felt really flirty and hyper. Pretty big sign there. I'm glad I have so many amazing friends. They are all just really amazing people.

The First Book Review

It has begun. I will, in a few moments, write my first book review for my blog. But before I do I have to mention something else for a moment. Blogger frustrates me sometimes. I can not remember for the life of me how to change font colors and such, and I can't find it any where. So, if someone could kindly comment and remind me I will love you forever. (I would love you forever anyways, but I'll love you extra much.) So here it goes......
The Fetch by Laura Whitcomb. It was...... interesting. It is a book about a Fetch (a being who takes the dead souls to heaven) named Calder who messes up the natural order of things by entering the world. He ends up in the middle of the Russian revolution and ends up trying to save Anastasia and her younger brother, Alexis. Ana (what she goes by in the book) and Calder end up falling in love. Surprisingly the romance is not emphasized very strongly in the book. The story is more about the fallen Fetch saving the two Russian children. It wasn't my favorite read, but I did enjoy the book. It is about 360 pages so not a terribly quick read, but it's a good book if you want one to skim through.Truthfully, it isn't a book that will stick with me. It is slightly entertaining, but not life altering.
There you go, the first official book review on my blog. Aren't you proud of me?
p.s. I tried to upload a picture of the book but for some reason nothing would work. I tried quite a few times with different pictures. Sorry!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010


I am working on being more frequent in my posts. So thanks to Grandma I have finally looked at my cousin's blog. And my observation: she is much more interesting to read than I am. I find that this blog is me just gabbering on about the day to day things in my life. Because honestly, I don't think I have anything truly interesting to say. So, after looking at her blog I tried to come up with something interesting to write about. Something besides what happens in my daily life. I decided that I might try two things, both of which are very cliche Kelsey.
(1) Write short reviews on books I have just finished reading and find worthy of giving a review about. Or not so worthy. (I'm hoping this will get me on more often. We'll see.) (2) post about my progress in my book. I haven't ever really talked about it on here. But I find when I talk, or I guess in this case write, about it then I get more motivated to work on the story and it get's my mind juice flowing. Nice phrasing there. Mind juice. I've never said that one before. So, I might occasionally post a small portion, a paragraph or so of my story. Or complain about my struggling with a character and how they have no depth, that sort of thing. And maybe I'll find a background that I just fall in love with one of these days too. I've been trying to find one, and many of them are very cute, but they just don't quite..... fit. So I'm still hunting for the perfect background. I may never find one, but I hope I do! Presentation is very important to me, being artsy and all.

September first

It's the dreaded day, the one that is just over a week away. September first, the first day of school. Also my last first day of public school, my senior year. Scarrry.
So I just spent the last week at EFY with a friend. It was so much fun and I came home on a spiritual high. I'm so glad I could go, and that I went at the end of the summer. That way I can hopefully use that high to help me when school starts. Everything will still be pretty fresh. I made some really amazing friends and I'm trying to still stay in contact w/ them. Dad came and picked me up on the way to a cousin's reception. The wedding was army themed, something I wouldn't pick for myself. But they did a really good job of making it cute and hard core at the same time. It fit the couple. Congrats to them!
Oh, and Grandma: can you email or facebook or somehow tell me Marissa's blog URL? I can't remember and I want to make sure and actually look at it now. Thanks! :)

Summer Busy-ness

I have been very busy this summer and it's just going to keep building. This next week is girls camp and I am very excited and slightly nervous. It is my last year of camp and my first as a YCL, so I don't really know what I'm doing. Last year would have been my first year as a YCL, but because of the trek we didn't have girls camp. So all our YCL's this year have no clue what they are doing. But thats ok we'll have fun anyways. I'm glad I'm getting a week off of work, even though I don't get a full week. We get back on friday and I work on saturday.
The first weekend of August we have a multi-stake youth conference up in Spokane. I'm excited, I think it will be lots of fun. The sunday afterward a friend and I are driving to Rexburg ( how do you spell that?) for EFY. After EFY I am getting picked up as my Dad goes down to a wedding reception in Utah. So I'm not going home for a long time. After that school is almost here! I'll be a Senior, which is a very scary thought. I've been working on scholarships a lot this week and I hope I can make some good money. I could really use it, just like everyone else trying to go to college.

Thursday, July 1, 2010

You know, you would think I would have gotten better at posting since it's now summer. Apparently not. Lora and her girls came to visit last week and that was LOTS of fun. She taught us how to make these really adorable cloth flowers. I took no picts because blogs take forever to load picts and didn't think of facebook. I'm just no good at pictures. Too bad, because my favorite part of other people's blogs are the pictures.
This week Grandma and Grandpa Woolley have come. I was sick the first day so I didn't see much of them. Luckily it was only a 24 hour thing so I'm fine now. I had to work today so I didn't see them much but tomorrow I am spending the day with them so I'll make up for it.
Surprisingly enough I am liking my job for the most part. It is boring when it gets too slow, but since I'm getting to know people that I work with it's not as bad. There is one particular person that I haven't gotten along with since I moved here and now I work with that person. I have decided to try to become friends with the person. Hopefully we will at least not feel weird around each other by the end of the summer. We'll see.
I have to say (because I'm so proud of myself) really quickly that I went on a 2.5 hour bike ride a few days ago. And I was able to walk around the next day. I'm impressed with myself. Little Kelsey Party!!! (WHOOOOOO!) k, I'm done. :)

School is out

YES!!! Here ends our first week out of school. We got out June 9, or wed. this week. I am loving summer!!! The weather has finally warmed up and I think its done raining. We have not pranked back yet but ..... lets just say its in the works. I have a busy summer ahead and I can't wait!
Its crazy to think I'm a senior now. I keep telling everyone that. I don't feel like a senior. I felt like a junior, but not a senior. Its too old. A senior sounds way more mature than I really am.
I've been working in my own little garden plot a lot more this year. I have to say, I think its gorgeous. The vine that was there when we moved in is not only still alive, but flourishing. We have been doing lots of yard work this year and I am learning how much I love it. Our yard looks much better too.

Sunday, May 30, 2010


We got pranked back. Well, Katelyn did anyways. While we were on our way to a goodbye party for another friend the boys came and silly stringed her bedroom. I can't wait to get back at them. We have two weeks of school left, and neither of them is a full week. There are SEVEN days of school left. I'm soooo excited. I start work on the 11th. I'm not really excited, but I'm ready to have money again.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010


So a few of my friends have been planning this prank war with me to start with some of our other friends. They accidentally started it by stuffing Katelyn's locker with paper balls. So, today during seminary we decorated two of their cars like they had just gotten married. Oreo's, paint, cans, the whole deal. They even had their cars unlocked so we toilet-papered the inside of their cars. It was amazing. Picts of facebook!!!! The guys we pranked have been trying to get into our lockers, but can't figure out the combination. It figures, seeing as how they are designed to stop people from breaking in. It's so much fun. :)

Thursday, May 20, 2010

You can end now......

Ok, school should end. Like tomorrow. I feel like I'm not doing anything in school anymore. Last night for mutual we went and planted trees at the U of I. Lucky for us a storm rolled in and we got pelted. The wind was very strong and we were very soaked. We went back to the church for popsicles. Figures. In my licensed state I have driven to school 2 times this week. It is soooo nice, it makes me wish I had a car of my own. But nope, I'm being good and saving up for college only. No car for me. Unless a decent car shows up that's extremely cheep. Yeah, right. I finished my book tonight, but I need to type up the last two chapters or so. I should be doing that right now but I just wrote for an hour or so, so for the moment I'm done. I can't wait for summer!!!!

Sunday, May 16, 2010


Wow, only 17 (i think) days of school left! It's crazy. And I officially have my license now :D This weekend I drove the kids around to two parks and the library while mom and dad were in Spokane for their 20th. I got a little tan and we stayed out of the house most of the day. Double victory! I think summer is officially here for the most part. I had my first job meeting on Friday and start cleaning the pool this upcoming week. Not really looking forward to cleaning it, but I hope working this summer will be fun.
Its so weird to think that in less than a month I will be a senior. Its really scary actually. I so don't feel ready. I think everyone shares this feeling with me. My senior friends don't seem ready to graduate either! Ready to be done with high school yea, but not to leave. Looking back I realize that moving twice will make it easier to go off to college. I feel bad for the kids who have never moved, they have no idea what its like. This way I have at least had the experience of having to completely start over. I'm still not very good at making friends completely on my own, but I've done it twice so I can do it again.
My book is coming very close to an end. I am working on the last chapter, and I'm so ready to be done. I'm excited to be done so I can go back and revise, so it's hard to not rush. I keep having to tie up all sorts of things. If anyone loves to write the book The Art of Fiction is a great tool. I'm reading it to help me learn how to revise better and it's been very helpful. Not every single thing in it, but there are defiantly parts I've used. I suggest reading at least part one of the book. It's very interesting.

Sunday, April 25, 2010


The busy end of the year-ness has begun. The dance my friends and I put together was this weekend. It was a total success, there were lots of people there and we received lots of compliments on the decorations. I am glad it's over, it was a lot of work. Almost every slow dance I asked a guy from Lewiston to dance and I met some really cool guys. It's too bad that I was doing all the asking though, I would have preferred to have them ask. The last weekend was as priest and laurel activity in Spokane.That was so much fun, there were lots of cute guys ;). None of them really asked to dance through. I did get asked to prom at the dance though.
Katelyn and I went up to get some of our guy friends from the stake to ask girls. We were kinda teasing them and harassing them to get them to dance. Well one of the guys holds up his phone to me. Its the kind that flips open and he had it open sitting in his palm. I didn't even look at it I just took it and said that he wouldn't get it back until he asked a girl to dance. Then I walked away. I came back a little bit later when I saw that he hadn't moved and was still talking to Katelyn. I started bugging him again and he told me, sounding slightly exasperated, to open his phone. I was confused but I did and what do you know, his wallpaper was a rose with "Will you go to prom with me?". I was embarrassed and we all started laughing. Of course I said yes.
All the Laurels in our ward got asked. I have to say I was surprised to get asked, I had never really thought I would get asked. I just never thought about it much really. But yeah I have a gorgeous dress and really cute shoes. The Prom is May 1st, this upcoming weekend. The weekend after is my AP test to see if I get college credit, then the weekend after I have a meeting to start training for my summer job doing concessions at the pool. The busyness never seems to end!

Catch up

Well we experienced the infamous spring snow storm this week. It has been cold all week and ended up snowing, I think it was the 2nd. Joy. I guess its good for the farmers, but its not fun for me. Although we have been lucky to have a very mild winter this year, something I am very grateful for.
We signed up for classes this last week and I realized that my senior year will (hopefully) be fun, but it still wont be very relaxed. I am taking an ELI which is an Extended Learning Internship. Its basically a chance to have a class on something not offered in the regular curriculum. You have two mentors; one from the school and one out of the school district. For my ELI I am doing my book, I'm very excited to have the opportunity for so much outside help. I'm actually starting it over the summer because there is no way I will wait until the school year starts to write again and I have to have at least 90 hours of work on the ELI. I am very excited about this and can't wait to finish my book! Who knows, maybe I'll start another one. I've found that writing is a very relaxing but mind stretching thing for me. I enjoy it but it makes my brain work at the same time.

ACT scores

So my friend got her scores a few days ago. So everyday I've been checking the mail for mine. Very impatiently I might add. Tonight after working out with Dad he kindly went out and got the mail for me. He came in and.... he had my scores!!! I had no idea what to expect but was totally suprized by what I did get. I got a 27!!!! I started laughing, I was so shocked. I think I was expecting something more along the lines of 23-25. I'm going to let myself brag a little bit. So in Reading I'm in the 99% for the nation, Writing 91%. Science is 85%. Math wasn't as good so that pulled my score down. I'm very excited, can't you tell????

Happy Weekend

I love weekends so much, it gives me a chance to sleep in compared to my usual 5:45. Yuck. I guess compared to most kids who have seminary thats not too bad. I'm glad our's starts at 7 not 6. My friends that aren't members think I'm crazy. Seminary is too amazing to miss. Not even for a million bucks.
I have a little project I've been working on and don't really have time during the week, so its nice to have a chance on the weekend. I carry it around with me almost everywhere and pull it out whenever I have time, but that's not often. I actually just started doing that recently, even though I've been working on this for a long time. I went about a year without ever touching it. One day I pulled it out and just starting looking through it again and decided to keep working on it. I would say what it is, but I'm still very private about it. Not many people have even looked at it. ( I hide it when I work on it) When I'm finished (NOT IF. I keep telling myself that.) I'll tell everyone about my project. But its kinda neve wracking to talk about it right now.
My ACT scores should come in a few weeks, I can't wait. The sooner the better. I'm very nervous about it still. My friend had me listen to this song my Owl City called Dental Care. I think it's kinda funny, everyone should look it up. (ESPECIALLY you Katelyn! It's your kind of song, even though you don't like Owl City.) I really enjoy owl city's music its good stuff to listen to when doing homework. Its slow enough that it doesn't take all your attention, but still fun to listen to when its not background music. The cool thing is it's one guy and he does all the stuff by himself. Its synthesised, but I don't mind, its creative music.

Valentines day and stuff

The results for the ACT take about 5-8 weeks. Its going to be a long 5-8 weeks. Today for V day the parentals gave each of the kids a small box of chocolates and we are sharing a big one. It was very nice of them. Last night they went on a date to some chineese place. Last night I had a dance. I love dances, I love to dance. Every dance I get told my one of my friends that I dance wierd. Whatever, I don't really care. I just love to dance. The guys were kinda lame and had a hard time asking. I actually danced with guys more than usual but I think thats because I asked guys a few times instead of not really caring. I went to Spokanne during the day and got a cute skirt and some skinny jeans. My first pair. I really like them. I almost got a bommer jacket, but because the skirt cost so much I didn't. I kinda regret it now because it was really cheap and I've always wanted one. Sigh. Oh well, I can survive without a cute leather jacket.
This winter has been very mild, I love it. It felt very springish this weekend. Its raining today, but yesterday it was really warm. I can't wait for it to permanatly warm up. I'm glad the weather changes because it would get boring to always have it be really warm or cold. But that doesn't mean I like winter. As a little kid I did but I do not like being cold. So bring on spring, I'm so ready!

I take the ACT this weekend. If I think about it too much I start hyperventilating. Ok, not really. But I do get nervous. No matter how much studing I do I will feel unprepared. So most of my studing has been done by studing for classes. I've done practice tests and done good on those. So I'm trying to not stress. The sooner that I'm done THE BETTER. So yea, my life has kinda stopped untill that is done. Sigh.....
That's pretty much all I have. I just haven't written anything in a while.

Finals are over!

YES! I'm so excited that the semester is over. Don't get me wrong, its been really fun. But I like starting over, a clean slate. I did pretty good on my finals, but not amazing. Except for my oral french exam, I got a 19/20!! I was so nervous about that. Especially since we had to do it in pairs. And, of course, my partner was a close friend and hes also probably the best in the class. It was very intimidating.

This weekend we are going to a bed&breakfast. It has an indoor pool that all the kids are very excited for. I don't really like swimming, but I'm determined to have fun if my parents are spending this much money.

Last night a group of friends and I watched the first two Borne movies. None of them had ever seen them before. I was flabbergasted!!!!! Those are some of my favorite movies. Most of the people I invited to come couldn't so it was a small group. But I still had fun. IDK about the rest of them, but I did. We were all pretty tired by the time 11 p.m came around. Finals can do that to ya. In a few weeks I'm taking the ACT. I'm nervous about it, and very ready to be done studing. And as soon as I'm done with that I have to start studing to get my licence. I've waited way too long. I could have gotten it back in November. I'm ready to be able to drive some places. I don't have a car to drive so I'll still be carpooling and getting rides from my parents. But I can drive to things like friends houses and mutual. It will probably make it so that my curfew is pushed back a little bit. :)

Post 101

K, thats cool. Over 100 posts. :) Its been way too long since Ive had the time to blog. My life has become very busy. Finals are next week and I am very stressed about them. I have two finals I am freaking out over, math and french. I can't wait to be done. And I'm taking the ACT in Febuary. I'm so busy with finals I haven't been really studing for that and its driving my parents crazy.
We haven't had like any snow this year, its been very mild. I like it. Its nice and easy to drive in. I still need to get my licence..... I think I'll wait untill after the ACT. I'm a little busy right now.
Tomorow after school some friends and I are going to Spokane to go see Avatar. Everyone going but me has seen it and loves it. Now you may be asking why we are driving over an hour to see a movie? Why, for IMAX 3-D. I have some friends *cough Dr. Crime. cough* who insist on seeing it in IMAX. So yeah. By the time we get home it will be about 11:30. Wow. Its going to be majorly fun though! I'm excited. But school tomorow is going to be really, really slow......
