Something I realized today:

August 19 2006
Do not apologize for the things that you are not able AND willing to change, else you will have "apologized" so in vain.

It's Been a Long While

June 28 2006

Gosh, I haven't been on this thing in forever.

Nothing exciting going on at the moment.  I'll be leaving for California on July 3rd, for those of you that have been wondering.  Don't know if I'll be coming back or not yet.  At least not for a while.  I'll just have to see how things go with my family out there.  I'm going to miss you all so much.  But it shouldn't be too hard for me to keep in touch.  I'll keep ya posted!

Tired, but better

March 13 2006

Well, I went to school again today finally.  I've been feeling much better these past couple of days than I was all last week.  Thanks to everyone for the encouragement, the thoughts, comments, & prayers. :)  They've really helped me.  You guys are amazing.

I'm still feeling kinda icky, and I'm pretty exhausted.  But I made it through today so far.  And the encouraging fact is that I'm officially an adult today.  Yeah, I don't like making a big deal out of my birthdays, but I am glad that everyone legally has to let me be responsible for myself now.  Yay, no more strings attached!

Mononucleosis = Misery

March 08 2006
Being stuck at home with mono is not exactly my idea of fun.  Especially when the rest of your world comes tumbling in on you at the same time.  And no, I've not been kissing anybody.  blech.

I hurt!

February 28 2006

These headaches, they won't go away... ahhh!  3 weeks now.  I'm definitely sick of it.  :(   My head is in pain.  Yep, it is.

My thought for the day:

February 18 2006

You know, God doesn't have to explain science; rather, science is simply our way of explaining Him.

It all makes so much more sense when I look at it that way--at least I think so.

Time for me to update, badly

January 06 2006

Well, it's been a while since I've actually typed anything on here...  not much to say really.  Oh well.  Life goes on.  Things seem to be going pretty well though.

Wow, I just realized that I am really boring, and I really do have absolutely nothing to talk about now that I think of it.  hehe.  That's actually kind of amusing for some odd reason.  Yes, I'm weird, get over it.  Anyway, I got a laptop for Christmas.... yay!  Wait a second.... why the heck are the neighbors shooting off fireworks right now????  Sorry... random distracted moment.  Yeah.... so I got a laptop... happiness... maybe I'll be able to keep up with this thing better then.  Oh, and I went snowboarding in Yosemite in California....  I had a blast!!  It was crazy though.

Ok, that's all for now.

Oh, and Nemanja:  you better keep in touch with me on this thing now, since I no longer have 1st period with you, and I rarely ever get to see you now!  *frowns*

Well, I'll yackatchalata!!  ~Elaine

All because of Nemanja

November 18 2005

Alrighty then... here I am, and it's all Nemanja's fault.  lol, just kidding.  Well, it is actually.  So yesterday morning he was like, "Elaine, come here, you are going to sign up for a Phusebox."  "Oh, I am, am I?"  "Yes, you are.  Now type in your e-mail."  "Ah, and you're going to make me get a Phusebox?"  "Yes... and I am going to be the first person you invite as a friend on here.  And you must join the 'I love Nemanja' group... and also the 'I love Sparky' group... don't ask... you just must."

Thus began my introduction to Phusebox.  Let's see how long I can keep up with it.
