In A Relationship
July 10 2006
It started out as a normal day. Hanging out with my friends, looking back on the fun times and looking forward to the future.
Then in a rush of madness, Tim turned.....Crazy and Uncontrollable.
I ran for my life, but I decided i had to show him who was boss and stand up for myself. So...
I killed him. It had to happen. I couldn't bear the verbal abuse any longer!! Those days of Tim & Emily, friends with pop tarts and silly putty are now gone.
Don't hate me, Tim! you kno it's funny.
**Oh, yeah, and Tim's not really dead. It's just part of the story. He comes back in "My story 2: It's Not Over". So look for the sequel!! And yes, i know, i have a overactive imagination.

i realized that my new life has started today as i said goodbye to heather. (but she'll be back in 4 months). i'll miss her, but right now i just want to be sad for a while. Cayla turns 18 today (yay!!) . and my own birthday is a few weeks away. MTSU Customs is Fri/Sat, and i'm in a whirlwind of work, previous engagements, and little sleep. Life moves on past graduation, but yet my smile won't fade.
I shouldn't be sad for it being over, i should be glad it happened.
And i am. I'm just sad for a little while...

So my little baby brother was promoted today. Yay.
cheers to Nathan.
there were a couple of Oakland Kids in there, watching their siblings graduate too. And Mr. Duke gets up to end the ceremony, and totally irrelevant to anything he was saying, someone yells
needless to say, I tried not to laugh. I mean, honestly, I know it was tacky, but it was SOO funny. My mom was so mad because i couldn't stop laughing. And all the other parents were really upset too, but Griffin, Meredith, Kyle, and I (scattered throughout the gym) were all laughing. I took one look at Meredith and grinned from ear to ear. And Griffin said he started laughing, stopped and was like, "hmm, no one else finds that funny....."
what a good laugh.

No one ever signs my yearbook. Not in the past 4 years has anyone signed them because we get them so late and graduation practice this year was just too crazy!! So leave me a yearbook worthy message, signing off the past four wonderful years. <3 emily

April 29 2006
so i'm sure if you are a senior or close, today's topic is prom. well, duh, i'm excited, its the senior prom. but this is a different subject.
This is my advice, my plea.
~~~>be careful!! we loose a senior every year, due to a mistake they made or someone else made.
I'm being dead serious. If you read this, obviously we know one another and that makes us friends. (hence, i care about you!)
I beg you all. Don't become a statistic.
Be careful, have fun, and enjoy a memory that you'll keep a lifetime!

hey, so i wrote this today, see what you think.
The wedding march started and she entered the room. Her hair was swept back in playful curls and her unique hazel eyes made her the most stunning that he had ever seen. This was the gorgeous girl he fell in love with when they were only kids. He had said he'd marry her and she only giggled. She had never taken her best friend seriously when he said he'd love her forever. Now the wedding day was here.
He met her glance halfway down the aisle and locked eyes with her. They smiled at the same time as she made her way to the altar. That smile was what swept him off his feet every single time he saw her. Now she was standing before God, the crowd, and the man she'd be with for the rest of her life, professing her love. Before he even knew it happened, the "I do's" were said and the couple was introduced as man and wife. There was that smile again, as the wedding party walked down the aisle.
At the reception, he watched her from across the room, laughing with her friends and greeting other guests. She browsed the room, looking for someone to catch her eye. Of course, he looked at that exact moment she did. He could always read her thoughts. That's what made them a perfect pair. He tried to mix and mingle among the wedding guests, but he couldn't take his eyes off of her. A slow song came on, their slow favorite song from childhood, and he couldn't stand it anymore. He had to dance with her. He parted the crowds to take the woman he loved by the hand.
"Excuse me, ladies, but do you mind if the best man borrows the bride for one dance?"

i've decided that i'm going to write a story.
the one of senior year. with the drama, cap and gown orders, fights, relationships, secrets, stupidity, lies, smiles, disappointments, triumphs, laughs, crying fits, random trips to whoknowswhere, bonding with people i barely know, pictures galore, and that little moment at the end of the day where i lay my head on my pillow and thank God he didnt pass me up on learning experiences.
"Welcome to the Fall"
I came back to school yesterday about 2:30 and sat in the theatre. watching everyone run around painting this, fixing that, explaining how this and that works. alone in the theatre audience. and it took everything not to cry.
my role has changed from the actress to the audience.
April 14 2006
you jump, i jump, right?
i want the romance, i want the connection, i want the secret story.
i want to risk it all to save the man i love. to brave drowning, tempt death at the very least for him to hold me one last time.
and the vivid memories that live in your head for the rest of your existence, holding on for dear life the one that you'd give your life for.
taking his name, holding his memory, keeping him in your heart for eternity.
and hearing the music fade in as you know you are in complete and honest love.
i want a titanic romance....

if you have only known me for a short time, you missed some of the best years of my life. and i realized about 20 minutes ago, i miss them too.
K-7th: My glasses, no makeup, & my ponytail were me. Oh, and my braces were a Lovely addition in 7th grade.You barely saw my face because it was always wedged in a book and if you did see me, i was talking constantly(what a change!). Drama consisted of someone tattling on another or who broke up with who in the "going out" phase.
And now. after the contacts, makeup, and straighteners...the catfights, the boyfriends, the **** i deal with,
i enjoyed today. The day of the PJs, the ponytail, and glasses. the day where i didnt need television entertainment, I read a book. and if you didnt know i dread May 20th like the plague,
you don't know me at all.
*e-$*<~thanks to someone who makes me laugh.

a thought hit me today.
if someone from my community can make it big, why can't i? i love the medical field, you know, but we all have that little, hidden dream. Mine=anything musical, acting related, or just showbiz in general. i mean, i know i couldnt even get the lead in the school play, but something Griffin said one day stuck with me.
Michael Jordan was kicked off his high school basketball team.
that thought sticks with me.

the term "drama queen" was a joke.
i don't like fights, i dont want them. I ABSOLUTELY hate DRAMA!! I just want to go back to the normality of freshmen year, with just us. Friends, back to back, always there for one another.
and then it hits like a ton of bricks.
People make choices, and do what they wanna do.
