Chicago is a great place to visit, honestly....just not three to five times a year! Having family spread throughout the world does have it's advantages and I love seeing them all and hate to part when it comes time to come home but (and yes there is a but) I wanted to be home with all of my extra family (friends). Ah well.

I know it's late but Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed their time off school and the moments they spent with family and friends...including the hours you spent in scavenger hunt mode looking for the perfect gift for each person you cherish.

Okay I'm done writting...but I have one more thing to put here and if you don't show up you know I still love you.

People I miss Badly!

Hey all!

  Aren't breaks suppose to be relaxing, some what fun and....well.... a break? Who ever said that is just silly. Tuesday night I got my phone confinscated because my sister yelled at me and my mom thought it was the opposite (me yelling at Ali). that way. I'm not stupid you know? Anyone who has t-mobile knows that there is a "sims card" in the back of your phone that contains all information for you and you can transfer phones with no problems.


I gave her my cell phone and kept the sims card. Genious? No? Yeah well it was for like a half an hour then I found out I couldn't find my old cell phone to stick the card in. Fine then! But then again I'm sneaky to a point anyway and not defeated to easily. I waited until my parents were asleep then I snuck down stairs and got the cell phone (always in the same hiding place) and called a few people....and didn't call a few others (sorry Cameron!).

Here comes the bad part. bum BuM BUMMM! Dad found out so there goes the home phone too. Well that was only Tuesday. Wednesday opened a whole new can of worms. I had to travel around looking for a new stove (cause I broke the other...long story) and then wait until it came. On top of that I didn't feel good and Ali and Mom were at it again. Oh well.

Thursday I read in my room all day...happy thanksgiving...and had an over all blah day. I found out my internet is broken on my lap top and my computer guy went out of business so I'm basicaly having to sneak onto sites my dad doesn't like on his computer. Yesterday my dad woke me up at 5 in the morning and I never came home until about 11 last night. Zonked out without another thought.

And now here I am without a phone...a computer...and a social life.

Love you all!!!!

Food for thought

November 20 2005

I have holes in my top and bottom, my left and right, and in the middle. But I still hold water. What am I?

Give me food, and I will live; give me water, and I will die. What am I?

What goes around the world but stays in a corner?

The man who invented it doesn't want it. The man who bought it doesn't need it. The man who needs it doesn't know it. What is it?

Throw it off the highest building, and I'll not break. But put me in the ocean, and I will. What am I?

I run over fields and woods all day. Under the bed at night I sit not alone. My tongue hangs out, up and to the rear, awaiting to be filled in the morning. What am I?

What can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?

You use a knife to slice my head and weep beside me when I am dead. What am I?

I'm the part of the bird that's not in the sky. I can swim in the ocean and yet remain dry. What am I?

I am mother and father, but never birth or nurse. I'm rarely still, but I never wander. What am I?

As a whole, I am both safe and secure.
Behead me, and I become a place of meeting.
Behead me again, and I am the partner of ready.
Restore me, and I become the domain of beasts.
What am I?

I fly, yet I have no wings. I cry, yet I have no eyes. Darkness follows me; lower light I never see.

What walks on four legs in the morning, two at mid-day, and three in the evening?

What is it that, after you take away the whole, some still remains?

I have hands that wave at you,
Though I never say goodbye.
It's cool for you to be with me,
Especially when I say, "HI."
What am I?

You can have me but cannot hold me;
Gain me and quickly lose me.
If treated with care I can be great,
And if betrayed I will break.
What am I?

My tines be long,
My tines be short
My tines end ere
My first report.
What am I?

My thunder comes before the lightning;
My lightning comes before the clouds;
My rain dries all the land it touches.
What am I?

..: If anyone wants the answers to any of theses message me the riddle and I'll send you the answer!::.

Even if one doesn't want to come to terms with things that are uncontrolable, it is life to do just that. To the one who touched my heart....maybe it was at the wrong time.

My little sister found this...

This is for all my friends who have been heart broken or who are going through the hurt. This is to each one who knows the fear and doubt.....

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't suppose to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

On a much happier note life is wonderful no matter the hardships I go through. I have come to terms with the fact that life is life...we never know what things will be put in our paths and the best way to over come these things is to trust God and go head first into you all!


Bathing the Earth

I stood in the rain last night

With my most favorite Finace

How amazing it felt to let the water wash over you

Like troubles dripping away


November 09 2005

Sitting in the computer lab on campus doing just about nothing. I decided I didn't want to stay in my Human AnP lecture so here I be....talking on the phone with about fifty other people typing away around me.

Life is boring.

There is no chasm as deep as two who are one, yet are worlds apart. There is no pain so great as seeing the one you love hurt like the earth hurts when it does not rain. There are no tears so big as the ones that fall onto the pillow before a lonely night's sleep.

There is no love as great as that of sacrifice when it is selfless and unassuming. There is no love as strong as the love that endures beyond death. There is no love so pure as the love that is patient and kind.

There is no emotion so geniun as that of laughter when it is seen in a person's eye. There is no sensation so revealing as that of a touch, especially when one finds the person that touches their soul. There is no feeling so overwhelming as that of love when it is expressed for the very first time.

There is no war as powerful as the war fought inside oneself. There is no batter as scarring as the emotional conflict. There is no victory as joyous as that of one who has overcome themself.

It is said that the woman's place is in the kitchen slaving away as they cook for those they love...and sometimes don't other words family. I hate that saying and its meaning...yet here I stand, in the kitchen, typing away at my lap top while it sits next to the stove. And what else?!? Making dinner for my brother and sister but for Cameron across the city(ish) because his mother is out of town and--don't tell him-- he can't cook. Awe well.
