Since I know you all want to buy candles from me, I thought I would tell you the scents/colors!Applejack/dark green Mom’s-apple-pie/red Banana-nut-bread/yellow Blueberry-cobbler/dark blue Buttercream/cream Cappuchino-Brulee/brown Carrot-cake/ dark orange Cinnamon-stick/cinnamon Cucumber-melon/light green Hazelnut/dark orange Honeydew/light green Honeysuckle/yellow Lilac/Violet Mulberry/burgundy Peaches-n-cream/peach Plumeria/plum Pumpkin-spice/dark orange Raspberry-delight/burgundy Snickerdoodle/dark yellow Strawberry-shortcake/strawberry Sugarcookie/ivory Summer-rain/royal blue Vanilla-crunch/peach Watermelon/light redNow do remember that Christmas is coming up. You really can’t go wrong with candles. With such a variety of scents and colors you can match a candle to anyone’s personality. It is for a good cause too, my church!Okay, enough of the salespitch.I got ready in 9 minutes this morning. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. It is getting harder and harder for me to get up in the morning. I don’t think it is the mono though. I am pretty sure that I am over that. I hope over our long break I can get caught up. I watched Gilmore Girls last night. I’m happy that Rory and Jess are together. I think Luke and Lorelai have feelings for each other. They should get married.YAY! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I never thought about how much I love this holiday until this year. I love seeing my family and eating turkey. i even still sit at the kid’s table. But I love sitting there! My cousins Jack, 5, and Sierra, 1, are my favoritest people. Jack is so cute and he always has gobs of energy. He is the reason I love getting together with my family so much. I really need to organize my room. Do you think having my mattress on the floor is adding to my back pain? I think it might be. For Christmas I decided that I am asking for 2 bearded dragons. I love lizards and these are my favorite kind. They can live up to 10 years. I would name them Rico Suave and Jose Cuervo. If there was a girl I would name her Phoebe. But I’ll probably get 2 boys. The vets say that they do fine if they live alone. But how depressing is that? I’d much rather be with a buddy that alone all of my life. If have any better names for them, please let me know!I ate at Damon’s last night. It’s kinda weird eating at a place when you know what the kitchen looks like. I work Friday and Saturday. I think I will pick up some shifts around Christmas. Or I could sleep in every day. Maybe I can train in on bussing and do that once in a while. That would be kinda fun. I’ll ask Angie.My two favorite letters to write are k’s and z’s.I think I am going to write a mean letter to Ms. Marthaler (my old band teacher). She is being mean to me and ignoring me. That’s not a good feeling to have a teacher ignore you. I was always there when she needed me to be. I did everything she asked of me, but now she is mean to me for no reason.I wish I had a $1000 shopping spree. I could use some new jeans and stuff, but I don’t want to spend my money. I need it to buy Christmas presents for people. I really don’t want to buy Christmas presents this year. I guess I’ll just do simple ones. I know what I’ll get my aunt and uncle, but that’s it. Who knows what I’ll get Jon. I am out of ideas. Any suggestions?So another week of school is over. Next week I will come back and do the same ol’ routine. I’ll barely make the bus, try to stay awake, do my work, and go home. This has been going on for almost 12 years now, with one to go. Then it’ll be off to college. A fresh set of faces, new classes, new teachers. But where to go after college? The next few years of my life are laid out, but after college I’m clueless. I really have no idea what I am going to be. This kind of troubles me. There are so many things that I am interested in, but yet, no idea as to a profession. I guess that is okay for now though. Who knows, maybe I’ll just be a stay at home mom. I would like that. I’d get to be with my kids. I’ll major in something… who knows… who knows.For Christmas I want 4 things:~2 Lizards~Dr. Martens~Palm Pilot~Cell phoneSpendy eh? But that’s really it. There really isn’t anything else that would be useful to me. Of course, those things are expensive, and my family isn’t rich. I guess these are things I’ll have to save up for on my own.Have a happy Turkey Day!
So math class is by far the most boring class ever. Most of the stuff I am learning will never be useful to me in the real world! Believe me, there is a chart on the wall that tells me so. By the way, if you are a waitress, you don’t even need to use a calculator.Last night I watched Everwood. That show is making it all the way up there. It has even passed up 7th Heaven. Everwood is such a good show. So Nikki has quit Damon’s. I now work there all alone. Oh well. I think I can handle it. But I am super happy for her new job at AE.Tomorrow is Jon and my four month anniversary. Yay! He is going to come over and sit in th ehot tub. Oh and tomorrow is also when I can kiss my boy! WOOHOO!Mark Matlock is coming up! You all should go. You know what else you should do? You should buy candles from me. It is to support my church, so it is a good cause.It would be cool if I could just write on the computer. Like on a pad of paper, but it goes into the computer. Then everybody could see how messy my handwriting gets.It would be really cool to be a mermaid. I’ve always wanted to be one.I think for my prom dress, I will have someone make it. Would it be tacky to wear the same dress this year to Jon’s prom and next year to mine? Only Jon would know, but hmm…I need a manicure. I keep picking at my nails. It isnt good.I don’t think anyone could read my handwriting at this point. I wish I could sing. Then I would try out for the musicals and and sing in High Praise. But I wasn’t blessed with that.You know, I have a pretty awesome set of friends:*Jon is a great boyfriend. He really cares about me. He is super sweet and he treats me very well. I can’t imagine anyone better for me.* Justin is wonderful. He is always there for me. He is great to talk to and helps me through a lot of problems.* Nikki is a fabulous friend. She is much more than just a friend. *Wink wink* Nik is great. I can talk to her about whatever.All of my other friends are great also! I am pretty lucky.Well, I shall go do KC stuff. Bye!
I wrote this diary entry while sitting bored in my math class. But I thought I would get a head start so I could update later. This weekend was pretty fun. My cousins came in, who I don’t get to see very often. So that was nice.On Friday Jon and I went out to dinner at Don Pablo’s. He picked the restaurant, and he picked well. None of my family ever wants to go there with me, but I love it. After dinner we went to the musical at my school. I enjoyed it a lot, and Jon got to meet Reed. I love going on "dates" with Jon.Saturday I worked during the day. I had never worked a day shift before, but it was pretty fun. Very hectic, but fun. Then I went home and hung out with my cousins. Saturday night I went over to Jon’s grandparents’ house for Thanksgiving dinner. All of his family was very nice. There were three little boy cousins there. "The cousins from Hell" as Sarah and Jon call them. I thought that they were very cute. All in all it was a good experience. Great food, great people, and a wonderful boyfriend.Sunday was sort of busy. Got up and went to church. Ashley headed off to Sunday school. Tina, Marcus and I hung out with the donut sellers – Ryan and Geoff- and Jon. The service was good and so was the band. After church we went home. Marcus and Tina left and I laid down from about one o’clock until four thirty. Of that time I think I only slept for one hour. When I woke up, I was crabby. Why? I have no idea! But I was. My dad made me run to Blockbuster which made me even angrier because I didn’t want to be late. I made it to and from Blockbuster in exactly 12 minutes. Then I went to church. There things were frazzled. Our room was taken…BRB- Taking a quiz.Okay back to Sunday. Everything was all a reck. But we managed to get started. We figured out sound to begin, but during a thousand people kept telling me to change everything. Luckily Justin was there to keep me sane. I then got semi-angrier when it was over becuase Anders and Jon told me basically that I suck at sound. But then Jon had to go and tickle me and made me happy. The nerve of that boy ;)Overall, my weekend was pretty good. So now I will post my schedule of upcoming events. Justin = work schedule just for you! Friday- 4tSaturday- 4tDecember 6 & 7- Mark Matlock= sign up and tell Derek I sent you!December 8- Youth Worship at WLC 7pmDecember 14- Brian Smith’s weddingFebruary 1- Starlight!!
Tonight Jon and I are going to go see the school play! I am really excited. I have a lot of friends in the play, and I can’t wait to see them all. We are also going to go out for dinner. I am making him decide where. Tonight is Friday Night Frenzy at church. You should all go! It will be tons o’ fun! School went fairly well. I am totally caught up in everything. My math teacher is kinda mean to me. I don’t think she likes me too well. The good news is that I understand everything in chemistry! That class is the only one I really care about. My cousins are coming this weekend. But I really won’t get to see them that much. Why? Well because tonight I will be gone. Tomorrow I work during the day (so come visit me!) And on Sunday I have church church church. My hands are really dry. Gross huh? I don’t know why they are, but they are. My grandpa called me the other day to wish me a happy late birthday. The weird thing is, I kind of forgot about him. He is my mom’s dad. My mom’s parents are divorced. He isn’t around all that much, but he never forgets about us. He sends us birthday presents and Christmas presents. We try to see him as much as possible, but things usually doesn’t work out. He is really a great grandpa, I just never see him. When he didn’t call me on my birthday, I didn’t even realize that there should have been one more person to call me. Both of my grandparents have remarried. My grandma’s husband is wonderful. I don’t even think of him as a step grandpa. My grandpa’s wife is nice too. I have never really called her grandma, I have only called her by her name. It is kind of weird. It must be super weird to have your parents remarry. Why do you think this entry is called notepad? Well, I will tell you. I am writing on the notepad of my computer. This way, I won’t accidently hit "Home" and change the site. I usually do that, and then it changes the window that I am working on and I lose everything. It frustrates me greatly.Well, I think I will go finalize the entry and get ready for tonight. I hope you all have a good evening!Song: Footloose
I sure haven’t updated in awhile! Almost a whole month. The duration of my mononucleosis. Mono sucks, but I am pretty much over it. While I am here, I am going to recommend this book to the world. "When God Writes Your Love Story." It is a fabulous book, and if you would like to borrow it from me, I’d be glad to lend it to you. So anyways, what else is new? Well I am 17 now. My birthday was on November 2. Woohoo! And last Sunday I saw the Newsboys for the 3rd time. Amazing as always.How are things with me and Jon? Fabulous! We are one week away from our 4 month anniversary. I sure do love him! And he has his back brace off now. I like hugging him and feeling him, not a big sheet of plastic. I’ve talked with Celeste lately. It’s nice. She told me that she sent me a birthday card with money in it. I never received it. So whoever stole it better give it back! Keep the money, I just want the card! I sure do miss Celeste. On Friday Jon and I are going to see "Footloose" at my school. I am really excited. Because 1) I love seeing my friends perform, and they are excellent. And 2) I love going anywhere with him. What else should I tell you? Well, I could tell you a lot…. But not all is for the whole world to know. I never got to say goodbye to PT. But at least I will get to see him at Brian’s wedding. I can’t wait to see him again. I really have nothing more to say. So goodbye!Song: Praise Adonai
