Breathe the fresh air.

I am down to taking 3 finals and I am finally relaxing,

In my state of relaxation I have really noticed how silly for me to have a blog is. I have all of these thoughts in my head about matters that are possibly not for viewers of all ages, and I can't write them. so what is the point really? I just write about that happens on a day to day basis, and yes that may be good but it isn't what is really in my deep down being wanting to come out. So, do I do this simply to please those who live far away and want to read about what my day is like? or do I disregard the fact that some people read this that wouldn't appreciate my thoughts and write them anyway? I don't know.

_much later_ so, Al Jones stopped in tonight, that was a pleasant surprise. I am a little saddened that I will be leaving a month after they (The Jones people) get here. I enjoyed our conversation much, although, he didn't give me much credit for all of the noble things I have done lately. oh well, I guess you win some and you lose some.

This afternoon dad and I went for a bike ride "Around the block", I remembered quickly why I love where we live. we rode down the to old creek and talked about dead black dogs... or something like that. it was great. the smell of fresh honeysuckle filled the air. it was amazing.

my thoughts are a little scattered since I waited a while to finish this, maybe one day I will write about what I really think...

One day.

heres what I think.

I hate when people write in all caps.

HandShakes & High Fives

I am sitting here trying my best to study for my Computer Applications test but my mind will not focus for me.
Today I am carried away with thoughts about the peculiarity of people. D and I had a strange conversation after school today, one that consisted of "Handshakes & High fives" (which is also going to be the title to some awesome song I will write some one steal that!). I don't get him sometimes, but I am sure he doesn't get me most of the time. (does anyone really?)
I am also bothered by the fact that I can never really seem to come up with interesting things to talk about, for I do enjoy writing about things that other people find interesting. oh well.

The end is near.

I am finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel! I have only one week left of regular school classes! (that is 4 days). And to my complete surprise, many of my teachers are going way easy on the exams.
Today I had barely prepared for my biology quiz and I walked in and was talking with the guys and our teacher told us we would have 15 minutes to study, but we all got into a conversation on who knows what. she got us to clear our desk and do all the stuff we usually do before quizes and then she told us to write our name on the paper, number it 1-10 and write 100 at the top. and that was it. we all just got 100's on our list quiz. I also found out that in order to pass that class with a C I would have to make a -47. and in order to pass it with an A I have to make a 51. and I am exempting the Final, but I have to take the lab final. I am happy about that.

With the end of the semester days away I am feeling the dreadful yet glorious feeling of 'a new chapter' in my life. I am a person who doesn't like change, yet love it when I adjust to it. I don't want to leave the days of walking from class to class with my dear friend and eating crackers from my teachers office and the long walks to my car with my friend by my side as we laugh and talk about whatever events had just occurred. yes, those are the days I will miss. but I have to remember that even though I am 'moving on' there will be so many great things to come!....right??
I went to Montevallo with mom last Friday and got myself mostly squared away for the fall. We met with the head of the art department and also the head of admissions. I felt that we didn't learn much, but mom said we did. I said ok.

The thought of moving away (even though I will be close to home) makes me really sad. (minus the part about I won't be home to get in trouble or anything like that). I am thinking I will be calling my sisters more often than I do now...I am sure that will like that.

oh oh! and I also found out that I will be able to graduate with my bachelors in Art in December 2008! (1 and half years). I am excited about that. and I will have my associates in...a week! yay.

Al Jones- I will be calling soon. I have been very productive. you better be working on your end of things!

Hubba Hubba

I have learned over the past few month that as I drive I should maybe be not so aware of my surroundings. here is why.

Now this isn't the exact reason why, but it has a lot to do with my reason.

A couple of weeks ago I was driving home from Wallace. totally minding my own business. I saw a woman in the distance walking to her mail box. nothing unusual there, but then I thought
[wait...does she have pants on??]. surely this woman walking out to the street to get her mail (on a busy road at that) would not go with out pants!!! [I must just be seeing things]. I got closer...
the woman was...large. [no way!!]...I get closer. [NOOO!!!] The woman had NO pants on! all she was wearing was a t-shirt!!!! (and underwear) but that doesn't matter, because she was large! and pant-less. I considered myself mildly scared.

so- I recovered mostly from that. and then another incident occurred. I was going to the church for practice, and I really needed to use the bathroom. I walked back behind the stage to where the bathrooms are, and quickly flung open the bathroom door (because they are slightly heavy, I pulled with force). to my surprise, there was a COMPLETELY NAKED 40-something man standing there. needless to say, I screamed, he screamed, I ran. I found out moments later that this man had just been baptized and was changing! Larry B. said I should have said "Hi! welcome to Harvest!" or better, he said I should have said "How's it hangin?" I was SO embarrassed. and I do not get embarrassed easily. I just don't understand why someone would not lock the door when they are changing!

I won't ever open a bathroom door without knocking again.

-Love me

In a moment of updating thoughts.

For people who actually read this (Jones people, Sisters)

If you haven't heard yet, I received the Presidential Scholarship to the University of Montevallo. It is a 3,000 dollar renewable scholarship.
Also, I have been asked to be the youth intern at the church for the summer! and I am so excited about that!

The semester is almost over (17 school days plus 2 days of finals)!!! I will have my associates in May and be finished with Wallace for good! and so far, I have high A's in all of my classes.

My two little babies are doing well, Tiger got bit by a snake a weeks or so ago, but he is on the mend. Ellie is getting into things as usual.

I will post pictures after dinner. :0)
