so we get another hour of sleep tonight!! i look forward to that!! i watched the original Psycho and Casper.... the one with christina ricci in it. i only got to see a little bit of it but i watched as much of it as i could. i haven't been to a halloween party yet and i haven't been invited to one either. maybe next year i should just through my own halloween party. maybe i should start earlier and have a christmas party or something. we'll see what i feel like doing. i might feel up to throwing a party. expecially since my dad finally fixed the spa pump.
i think my mom is seriously going to let us get a better internet. probably whatever is offered through time warner because they provide our cable too so i think my mom is going to go with the cable/internet/phone plan thing all through time warner. because right now we are going through 3 different companies. so i think we might be getting that installed this week if we get it because mom will be home. that is something to look forward to. last night i was up until 1am downloading the antivirus stuff. took me 3 hours. it was 29.9mb and you can imagine that on DIAL-UP!!! ugghh. and then i got up early to go help out at the jv invite. i trained someone on the computer. i am glad i did that because i am not sure if i want to keep going back. i mean i don't mind if ainsley is swimming but if i don't have a real reason to be there i don't want to be there. anyway we all know that a certian coach who i will not name hates me- if you really want to know ask but it really doesn't matter. i never did anything to her and she hates me. i hate people that do that!! i got a catalog from tomball today. so i have been looking at all the classes that they offer. they offer a lot more than i would expect. they even have a swimming pe class!! because everyone has to have a pe credit to graduate or move on from there or whatever you wanted to do. but it is a lot more than what i expected. my dad was trying to convince me that they let everyone in but i know for a fact that someone didn't get in. can you believe it? i can. because it is true.

halloween

yipee!! tomorrow is halloween!! anyone doing anything something special? ainsley is going to some haunted house tonight with the swim team. mom and dad are going out with some other parents so i get stay home by myself. yipee........ not much to say. i went to help out at the jv invite. that is pretty much it.

secret service

oh my gosh!!! i was just looking around at some of my friends blogs and i found this link on one of their blogs to this person's blog. this person had the secret service come to her house because of some things she had said about the president on her blog!!! that is so wierd!! check it out!! click here!

swim meet

so tonight klein had a varsity meet against elkins. it was at klein. but klein football also had a game. at every meet we always have 2 or 3 trainers there. we started at 6pm and the football game started at 7:30 pm. so i am sure you guys can figure out what happened from here. the stupid trainers left the meet early to go to the football game. but wouldn't you know it that something bad happened? yep!! you got it!! a girl fainted or something in the 2nd to last event!! and was there anybody there to help her? well there were plenty of us but none of knew what to do! that is why we have the trainers there in case something bad happens. but one of the people that trains the trainers come from the stadium i think but we finally got the girl up and everything turned out fine but what if something bad happened? that made me so mad!!! why couldn't they stay for 1 stinking more half hour? i think we finished around 8pm. all i know is that i got home about 8:30pm and i helped clean up a bit!!! gezz!!
well i am downloading some new virus scan software because i had put the virus scan stuff from the school on my computer in august but of course i don't go there anymore and i had only a trial version before that so i didn't have any virus scan software on my computer. i like the trial version that i had so i am buying the full thing and downloading it. it is McAfee. does anyone else have that or norton?
Ainsley swam pretty well tonight. she swam a lot better than she has in a while. she is thinking about switching to KA. she has been swimming with them for a few days and i think it has done some good already. brian who would be her coach there used to be a backstroker i think so i think that is good. but i am starting to think that it is a good idea. she needs to decide pretty soon so she can swim on relays at sectionals in febuary. because when you switch teams you are unattached for a certian amount of days after the last meet you swam at with your previous team. and when you are unattached you can't be on relays and when you score points it doesn't go towards the team that you swim with. in this case it would go to unattached-KA.
my mom is taking next week off!! yeah!! i am excited. instead of going to visit colleges today, my mom finished up some billing at work so she can take all of next week off instead of having to go in a few days. but we are going to go on some tours next week. we will probably look at cars too and search for a job!
tomorrow is the jv invite. i am going to work at it. and then sunday is HALLOWEEN!!! i am not going trick or treating or anything but i did put up decorations. then next week we get to put up thanksgiving decorations!! yeah!! then comes christmas!!!! i love christmas!! my 2 favorite holidays are christmas and thanksgiving. mainly for the food and then presents!! i know i am a greedy little person!!just kidding!!

codes/links

yeah!! i have learned how to put codes on my page here without having it done for me. like they just provide you with the picture and you have to put it on your page and link it back. but i have figured out how to do that. sorry if they all don't line up they all seem to like to just be right next to each other so it runs onto the the next line. or is it only me that it does this? anyway if you would like to be on my links list comment!!
yeah!! boston won last night!! st. louis didn't even have a chance!! i have been reading a lot lately. i am rereading the left behind series again. i don't know how many times i have read those books. the only other series that i reread as much as i do this series is harry potter. i can't wait until the 6th book comes out. that is what i want for christmas if it comes out before than. another thing that i want for christmas is the 3rd harry potter movie. that will give you guys a head start on christmas shopping if you want to get me anything. mom and i are hopefully going to look at some colleges tomorrow. i need to go look up about some tours so i am going to go now!!

this weekend

i am very tired. this weekend i was volunteering at one of fleet's meets. very long day. and it was all the way out at cy-springs. it is at the end of the world!! but they are actually starting to build neighborhoods out there!! but it takes like 45 minutes to get out there! but last night we went to this italian restraunt that my mom used to go to with some friends before she went back to work. it was so yummy.

Homecoming

Well it is official!! Klein SUCKS!!! We lost to klein collins 31-10!! can you believe it? well at least that was the score half way through 4th quarter. we left early because we were losing by so much. i might look in tomorrow's paper for the official score but i don't think it will change much. i saw a couple of people that i knew. i am going to be pretty busy this weekend because i am going to be helping out at a swim meet for most of the weekend. and it is at the end of the world. all the way out at cy-springs. yuck. it is like 45min-1 hour drive depending on the traffic.

ramblings

as you guys can see i changed the template. the last one started acting funny (at least on my computer) so i decided to change it. anyway i didn't like the dots in the background anymore. so we will see how this new template works out. i added more links to the links list. i had the worst time getting the haloscan commenting back up. every time i went to change something in the template it would change the commenting back to the blogger commenting. i don't really like the blogger commenting so that is why i have haloscan commenting. oh well. on the wall that my computer faces i put a whole bunch of pictures on the wall like orlando bloom and some harry potter. i can't wait to get a car. i need to find something to do. i really want start going to the gym again and by the time i have access to a car i don't want to go anymore because it is usually after dinner because everyone gets home at dinner time so we have dinner and then i am full and tired so i don't feel like going anymore anyway who wants to work out on a full stomach. but i would like to get a job or at least have something to do everyday. but i am still glad to be home. i play with the dog a lot and write people letters and surf the internet.

update

hey!! i haven't updated in a few days so i thought i should at least say something. yesterday we went to look at cars. we test drove a camry. it was a nice car. i hope i don't end up with the taurus. i wouldn't mind having my moms car because it has a cd player in it. i am reading the adventures of huckleberry finn. i like the book. i read it junior year and i am reading it again. i am also going to read the adventures of tom sawyer. i have never read it before. if anyone has a suggestion on good books to read please comment!!!

October 15, 2004

books and things

i finished 1984. it was good. i am so glad that life isn't really like that!! i am now reading the adventures of huckleberry finn and the adventures of tom swayer. i am also going to read the left behind series(again). i have lots of different books that i want to read. maybe i might post a list of books i am going to read this semester while i am not in school. i was proud of myself for finishing 1984.
ainsley has a meet in fort bend tomorrow. she is swimming the 100 im and 100 breast. not exactly her best events but ok. might be able to show coach that she is good at breast too. i think she is probably the best breaststroker on the team which isn't saying much since that is not her best event. oh well. the team stinks this year. ainsley and kirsten and maybe mariam and jayme are the team this year. that is not that great. we don't have it much better on the boys side but the fish might surprise us!! oh well.
not much is going on. i was looking on the CarMax website to see what kind of deals i can get on cars. so i looked up my ideal car which is a blue bug. i found a used one for only $10,000. i think that that is a pretty good price because it only has 50,000 miles on it. and only a '99. there was a picture and it looks in good shape and they are pretty new!! so i printed out the page and told my mom about it. well then she informed me that most likely my mom will be the one that will get the new car or at least the new used car and either ainsley or i will get the altima. i think that is a little unfair because mom just got that car less than 2 years ago. and andrew got to pick out his 2nd car after he wrecked his first car!! i think it would just be fair to let me get a car. but life is not fair is it? i had the initiative to look online and look and what do i get? a big lousy you are not getting a car i am thing. thanks a lot!!

October 14, 2004

internet

so my mom says that we can get the time warner high speed internet if they can give us better pricing. because we have cable with them so they might give us a good pricing on both of them together. but it is hard to tell because i can't find prices on their site. i will just have to look harder! anyway we might be getting faster internet!! yeah!!

October 13, 2004

my orlando bloom picture

hey!! in the mail today i got my copy of the signed picture of orlando bloom!! it is so cool!! i have put up some halloween decoration today. i love holidays. i watched home alone 2 today with ainsley and i can't wait till christmas. can't wait until thanksgiving too!! good food, good friends and good family!!!yeah!! cheers everyone!!

October 11, 2004

job

well i have applied to 3 different places: Randalls, Krogers and blockbuster. i hope i get a job soon. and you know what is interesting is that all 3 of them you can apply online!! so i did that for randalls and blockbuster. i did the krogers application there because they had a desk with a computer so i did it there anyway i didn't dress nicely to just come home and apply online. but i guess most places you can apply for a job online. oh well.
i had a really weird dream last night. i was at college but it was all different. anyway i was in my dorm which was really different because everyone stayed in this big room and you had a bed and a desk. anyway it was the weekend and annie comes to visit me!! i was so surpised. then hilary duff and frankie muniz come to visit me! then my computer went freaky on me and everyone left. so after i ficked my computer i went to look for everyone. and to get out of the dorm you had to swim across this pool. then i found hilary and frankie at a restuarant. then i woke up. weird dream. don't know what it means. oh well.

random things

ainsley took the sat this morning. she said it was hard. hope she got a good grade. i found a disposable camera the other day when i was finishing unpacking. it has 12 pictures left on it. maybe i will find something to take a picture of. i am still trying to find a college that i could take a correspondence class with. i am somewhat leaning towards texas tech-mainly because i have taken a correspondence course with them before. we will figure it out soon. still cloudy. the power went out yesterday for really no reason at all. usually it goes out when it is raining really hard out but it was not even drizzling out. it was a little cloudy but that was it. anyway it came back on in about an hour. still haven't heard from randalls. ainsley doesn't have school on monday so i am going to take the car and go apply to a whole bunch of different places. might even go talk to the people at randalls first. see if i could have an interveiw on monday so i turn up for an interview all hot and sweaty from walking up there. i will have to look for a bike rack so if they do i could ride my bike to work. i don't think i will get so hot and sweaty doing that and i will get there faster. anyone selling a car for somewhat cheap? comment or e-mail me!!

October 07, 2004

so when i was talking with my mom today, she suggested taking a correspondence course. sounds like a good idea. need something to do until i hear from potential employers. not that i haven't been doing anything. i am cooking tonights dinner. and i am going to make a cherry pie!! this summer i found that i really like to cook. actually i liked to cook before this summer but this summer i actually made dinners for my family. that was something i missed when i was at college because you couldn't cook your own meals. you could warm stuff up in a microwave that everyone has to share but that is pretty much it. no fun to that. and it has been raining out so i can't really take my dog for a walk. i like doing that too except for when it is really hot out but in general i like it. it is a form of exercise. i need to start going back to 24 hour fitness. thank goodness my mom didn't cancel my membership!! maybe once i get a car i can go during the day when no one is really there so i can use the machines whenever i want and in the order i want. because oround 5-6 pm everyone that works during the day comes to work out and it is really busy so sometimes you have to wait for a machine. while i was at school i actually lost like 5-10 pounds. but most of it was from stomach aches......if you know what i mean!! and i am sure some of it was from walking too.
i am sorry for being so mean in the last post. i was just tired of everyone saying the same thing. i know you guys were just trying to help.

October 06, 2004

i don't think i should have to explain why i left. it was MY CHOICE!! i am pretty much incapable of trying to explain my feelings. anyway.....i did not have that much homework. the professors pretty much expected you to read the chapters that they were going over. it does not take that long to read that and then maybe review it before the test.
well i am glad for the many comments on the last post. let me say something in response to them: i know college is the best way to learn how to live away from home. but i have many years to learn how to do that. and when i get a job that will occupy most of my time and thoughts. i may even be lucky to live close by to be able to see my family often. i am just not ready yet. i know birds pretty much push the baby birds out of the nest to learn how to fly. but we are humans. i am not exactly ready to learn how to fly yet. maybe in a year. just not right now. get off my back.

Rerun
You are Rerun!

Which Peanuts Character are You?
brought to you by No comments:

i am home!!

well i got home last night. today i am unpacking. i have already put in an application to work at randalls. the question is when i get a job how am i going to get there? because my mom told my sister that she wouldn't have to share a car with me. if anyone is selling a car call me!! i don't care if it is the junkiest car in the world.....i need a car. it feels good to be home. i wasn't ready to leave home. i was ready for college just not to live away from home. do you understand?

October 04, 2004

i going home!!

well i coming home. i am not quiting. i am going to look for a college closer to home. but for the rest of the semester i am going to hopefully be working at randalls. i have already applied. last time i went home i saw that they were hiring so hopefully it will work out. making some money. i hope you guys aren't disappointed. i am happy. this is the right thing to do at the moment. i did go to the counseling services that they have here. they made suggestions that i don't think i could do at the moment.

October 03, 2004

me

i feel so alone.....why do you ask? my parents will not answer the phone!! i have called and left messages and everything but do they call back? NO!!!

going home

well i think my parents are pretty much ignoring me now. if anyone would like to move me out please e-mail me or call me or im me or whatever. your help would be very um....helpful. and i will give you $25 for your helpfullness

October 02, 2004

i am a big idiot

so why did i think a private room would help?? my reasons seem really stupid right now. now i have no tv, a longer walk to everything, i don't know anyone here, and it is too quiet. but at least i can sleep. i took a nice 3 hour nap today because i was so tired from moving last night and i still am tired. so i am going to bed soon. but i guess i just want to figure things out and the best way to do that is to write in my blog and i can have people comment on it. sorry if i scare you guys. i should be committed or something. but i need more structure in my life. i sorta liked how high school worked. you went to school everyday from 7:30-2:25 every day and then you went home and studied because you had all your classes the next day. here you only have classes only 2 or 3 times a week. not as much structure to life. you were pretty much told what to study in high school. here you have to figure it out for yourself. here school does not take up most of your time. i sorta want to go back to high school. even though i didn't like it that much but i like it better than i do here. at least i knew people and knew where everthing was and i lived at home and had a homecooked meal pretty much every night and i would see my friends everyday and i had a car. here i don't know where things are and i don't know that many people and not many i would consider friends, and what ever they are serving in the cafeteria you get to eat and they are only open at certain times and i don't like the gym here very much (i actually miss 24hour fitness!!) and the swim team practices during my classes and never even told me when the interest meeting was even when i asked!! forget this i am going home to my family and friends that are still there and hopefully i will be able to see friends soon that aren't there and access to a car and better gym and maybe even a swim team that i can practice with and maybe i will soon find somewhere that i would like to go to!! and i am going to make sure that is what i want before i say i am going to go there. i am going to visit the campus and talk to people and everything before i decide on where to go. so hopefully by monday i will have this worked out and i will know if i am coming home or what. but if i have it my way i will be home. hopefully i will really know by tomorrow. but i think i will withdraw anyway. check later to see what happens.

Home

I think I am going to withdraw on Monday. I would have already but reality keeps me grounded. Like how I would get all my junk home. I don't have a car with me so that would be a little hard. And whenever I talk about it with my parents they are like you are not a quitter. But I am. They say I can transfer next semester if I have good grades but that isn't going to happen. I probably won't get higher than d's considering my test grades. *hangs head in shame* that is why I would like to withdraw now and start clean next semester somewhere closer to home. Maybe U of H or something like that. I could probably even commute to U of H if I wanted too but my mom says that the drive is a killer which is probably true. But at least if I lived there it would be so much easier to go home on the weekends and maybe at nights during the week. Or I could even go out to lunch with my mom because it is somewhat close to where she works. So tomorrow I will pack up my stuff and see how I will get me and all my junk home. Hopefully one of my parents will come up and help but if they don't I think I might look into renting a haul truck or borrowing someone's car. We will see but of course in a perfect world my parents will come and help but we know that it isn't a perfect world because if it was I would totally adapt being here or I would have withdrawn a long time ago. anyway i was thinking about getting a job at randalls or krogers until next semester if i am able to go home which hopefully will happen but with my horrible luck i know my parents will be like stick it out. but i think i will stand up for myself for once and just do it. yes, i think i might just do it. no matter what myparents say.

lonelyness

well i have just spent my first night in my private room. i am really lonely. it is really quiet here. sorta miss sharing a room. at least there was someone there making noise and stuff but a lot of the time it wasn't at a good time. i miss tv. i don't have a tv in my room anymore. because i have a tv in my room at home and then amber brought a tv so i have had a tv in my room for a while now. but of course my parents won't let me bring my own tv up here but i don't know if i will be here that much longer...... there is nice one downstairs but if there are more people in there than just you than you pretty much have to watch what they are watching!!! this is really hard. but i got my wand!!! hehe!! i think i might watch harry potter today and practice wand movements and spells with them!!

October 01, 2004

room!!!

well here i am in my new private room!! i am very tired.....but i made it. i really haven't unpacked my stuff but since i am the only one in here i don't care. i am going to go to sleep and tomorrow i will organize my stuff.......again!! and i don't have to pay a lot extra i think they said $300 but they usually charge like $500 or something. they are giving me a discount because it is so far into the semester. hopefully i can make it through the rest of the semester!!

private room!!

guess what!! i am moving into a private room!!! yeah!!! it isn't here in todd but it is griffith!!! but i get a private room!!!! hehe!!!! next post from my private room!!!
