things are changing...
June 09 2006
Things are changing in my life so much right now. The big thing is friendships.... I have been hanging out with the same person almost every night for the past 2 weeks.... don't get me wrong..this is my best friend in the whole entire world and i love her...but i feel that i am almost loosing all of my other friends at the same time....My mom asked me about someone the other day and i was like man..i honestly don't know.... I haven't talked to her in a while... It is weird....we all have new friends and jobs.... i miss all the times that i had with my girls.... now, it seems that whenever one of us is free, the other has something to do. I miss all the free time that we all had in highschool to hang out with each other..I miss doing random things at random times with everyone. I hate that when i left for school i only had a few close friends. I barely even talk to those few anymore... I look around and at UTM i have a few close friends there....But none like the friendships i had here... Don't get me wrong, i love hanging out with all of my adpi sisters, and i miss everyone of them so much this summer already, but man.... i stop and think about all of the friends i had in high school and i wonder where it all went? Was it my fault b/c i just didn't try and keep in touch? But then i think, wooh....friendship is a two way deal...they haven't tried to call me at all these past year either. or even since we all got out for college...I don't know..just had to get that off my chest...
June 03 2006
So the house that i was talking about in the last post didn't go through. After letting my parents look at the house Jessica and i decided that we wouldn't get it since they didn't like it. So after one of my exams i went back to my dorm room and went to work on finding another place. After only 15 minutes i called a place that we had tried before and talked to them. They said they had 2 apartment complexes in Martin that allowed pets..... So jessica, Nathan (jessica's boyfriend) and I went to look at those and fell in love with one of them that is right off campus..So we went 2 days later and payed our 1st payment on it!! So i will be living in an apartment near campus...I am very excited..I am going to move in some of the stuff that my sister is giving to me from her apartment in martin next weekend....
But yeah..I hope everyone is having a great summer!!
May 05 2006
So...After looking for about 3 weeks for a house in martin for Jessica and I to live in, we finally found one today!!!! I am soo excited about it..It is not the absolute best that I have seen but it allows pets, it looks good on the outside and on the inside except from the mess that the boys who live there now have made!!! But i am soo excited!! We are putting a lease on it tomorrow!! WOO HOO!!! I am very excited!!!!
Finals are this week!! I am a lil stressed about it but I am doing good... I have 2 down and only 2 more to go....So we will see how everything goes!!!!
Well i am gonna go!! I hope everyone has a great day and weekend!!!
April 15 2006
Well...It has been a while since i have written on here.... I am finally done with all-sing!! THANKFULLY!! It consumed my life soo much but i have to admit i made some really good friends and i did enjoy it!!! I went straight from All-sing into softball..But it looks like i won't be playing anymore!!!
Here is the story incase you haven't heard it yet:
Monday was our first game of softball..I was super stoked!! I hit the ball and ran to first..Little did I know that the bases were higher on this field... So i kinda rolled my foot...Well i didn't say anything and just kept playing!! Then on Tuesday I went and got a brace to wear....Did the same thing that night..Just not as bad b/c i had the brace on. Well..I just continued to wear the brace b/c my foot kept hurting...So i was like well i will just wear it until it stops hurting...Then just wear it when i play softball!!! Well....I am putting things up in my house yesterday and was going back to the couch when i trip over a hairdryer cord and fall!!! I couldn't get up b/c my foot was hurting soo much...So i just pulled myself up on the couch.... Well i called my mom and told her what happened..She laughed!! LOL!! Then she told me to hop to the kitchen and get an ice pack and prop my foot up.... I was really upset b/c i thought that i wouldn't be able to go out for Dena's surprise birthday stuff!!! But luckily my sister had brought home her crutches and I had to use those last night..Got up this morning and was a lil sore... But I went to work...I was hurting really bad when i came home so mom took me to a walk-in clinic..We had to get an X-RAY on my foot...It is not broken... but the doctor said that it might be bruised muscles and tissues..or it could be sometype of fracture that just isn't showing up...
So b/c of this i am on crutches for the next few days... NOT FUN!!! I already hate them..but for me to walk around and not hobble i have to use them...BOO!!!! I don'tknow what i am going to do since i live on the 3rd floor of my dorm... it will be interesting when i get back!! HAHAHA!!! Well i am gonna go to bed...Gotta get up for easter in the morning..I hope everyone has a great easter!!!
Friends and Ipods
March 25 2006
so i have to say this has been one of the best weekends in a while.... I came home b/c I had a friend in need of my company!!! I got home on friday at like 3.... It was a crazy and wacky drive down.... Sorry Dena for bein CRAZY..lol!!! Got home and just sat around with Beau(my sister's dog that was her for a day) for a while. Then I went to eat with Dena and Rachel..had fun eating and just talking..then we went to Wal-mart where we usually go when we are board and we just looked around..I got some funny stuff....Then we went to rachel's house where we called Patrick and got him to come over and hang out with us.... We all sat around and played Phase 10 and just had a great night!!! i miss nights where I can get with my friends and hang out whenever I want........
Today I got up and went to Hickory Hollow with my mom and sister... then we came bac back and ate with my dad...That was yummy....went home and packed lauren and beau in the car to leave...then after they left we went to the batting cages to see if I could hit some slow pitch balls...it was soo weird considering i went from Coach-pitch to Fast pitch..I have never played a day of slow pitch in my life until this coming spring for ADPi..It is gonna be pretty crazy!!! Then we ran a few errands...Came home and starting making a few things to take back to Martin with me... My Aunt Kristie and her family came over and we all went out to eat at CHILI's...YUM!!! Saw rachel there.... that was fun!!! I went and sat with her for a while... Then we saw Aunt Kristie and them off....Then we went to Electronic Express where I made my first big purchase since my dvd recorded this past summer..I BOUGHT MYSELF AN IPOD NANO...I am ubber excited about that one..My sister thinks I am stupid what whatever..I have my reasons for getting one....
well i am going back to martin tomorrow morning for a ceremony that my sister has for being a smart kid..lol!!! I also have a history test to study for tomorrow..it will be interesting..also i have meeting!! Tomorrow and the next few weeks are going to be crazy....
Bye bye!! I absolutely love this girl to death!!!

So I am at home for the weekend...Well not really...I went home and then about 3 hours after running around to appointments and to Verizon..I left to come to Chattanooga... I am working the Wrestling Tournament for TSSAA!!! So that is good..That means I can actually go and and buy some food that i might need for the next couple of weeks..lol!! But I really wanted to go to Union to see Ashley preform in her thing with ZETA tonight!!!! But I just got a text message from here saying that they won so I am extremely proud of her!!!!!!!!!
But yeah...So there is a chance that I could get stuck in Chattanooga this weekend!! HAHA!! It is supposed to snow and get bad here tomorrow morning...which kinda sucks b/c who knows when i will get back to tha boro and then have to turn around and drive back to martin!! BLAH!!! But whatever!! It is just go dto be home!!!!

God works in awesome ways!!
January 19 2006
Wow...so all I have to say is that God works in such amazing ways!!! Last night I just broke down b/c things have just gotten to stressful and everything just came up last night!! I was just having to pray about it all and know what God will talk care of it all..And then today around noon I got a text message and it was said "hey girl...you have been on my mind lately and I just wanted to know if there was anything that you wanted me to pray about for you?" How amazing is it that God told one of my best friends that i was having a hard time!! It was soooo amazing!! Things today were better!!
I kinda feel like someone is trying to slowly come back into my life and that the Devil is trying to tell me to put my heart back out there so that he can just take it and hurt it again!! But I know that this is not the right guy for me b/c of past experiences with him. I just have to keep praying about it and know that I have awesome friends there for me and my Boy survival BOX!! LOL!! Thanks Dena!! But yeah...
Well I am almost down with the first week of classes...I didn't know if I was going to like how my classes are set up and some of the classes that I am taking but after dropping one I feel like I have a great schedule!! I really like my Sociology class that I have with Katie and now I have History with Jessi..Which is gonna be pretty awesome!! I am pretty psyched about that one!! Only bad part is that I am going to have to compete with her for the best grade!! But ohh well!! She will help me out in the class..I HOPE!! LOL!!
Well I am gonna go! My 8 class was cancelled but I still hae my 9 and 10 oclock ones!! So I will try and write more later!!
Back from Disaster Relief Trip with ADPi
January 14 2006
New Orleans was amazing!! I had such a great time with my sisters!! We ended up staying in a homeless shelter on the 6th floor..And the steps were super steep but it is okay..I have a blast!! We got to work on 3 houses... 2 the first day and then 1 on the last 2 days.... The first 2 houses we just cleaned the back yard of the first house and then the second house we cleaned out the inside and then did some work in the shed and the yard behind and beside the house. Then on the last 2 days we stripped out the walls and drywall in a house and took out all of the furniture that was destoryed by the storm. I got closer with some of my sisters!! It was soo much fun!! i am really glad that God told me to go and help others out. I might try and put pictures up and show ya what we saw later on when i get them off of the camera. The last night about 6 of us girls and the dad that went with us went to Burbon street and hit a few bars (no i didn't drink anything) and just danced at a few of them and just had fun. We then went to Krystals and ate at like 11:30 and then went back to the shelter to sleep!!! Came home yesterday from there and it was about an 8 hour drive. Went to Amy and Jordyn's apartment to pick up my dad from dropping amy's car off and then we headed to Paris to see my Granny and Pap and then we came home..So I was in the car for about 10-11 hours yesterday..not fun at all!!! but yeah..
This trip was something that i needed to get my mind of some things and just help me get focused!! I am still struggling with my relationship with God but it is getting better. I know that I have Him along with some pretty awesome friends to help me get through it all..
Went to Fuji tonight with my family to celebrate my mom's birthday!!! That was fun!! Then I went with my sister lauren to her mother-in-laws house to visit her and pick up beau and then came home and just relaxed... got to hang out with Dena today and hanging out with ashley tomorrow!! then back to school on monday!! starting a new semester!! Wish me luck!!!!
Well i am off to bed!! church is in the morning!!!
January 07 2006
So...I leave tomorrow to go to New Orleans!!! I am going with some of my sisters of ADPi to help with Katrina Victims... We have been trained by the Red Cross and are going down to gut out houses... WHATEVER THAT MEANS....
What is this going to have in store for me?? I have absolutely no earthly Idea!!! For one I am scared b/c I am going to the center of it all...The place that got the worst hit from Katrina. A place that needs so much help, but yet isn't getting enough from those who have already gone down before me. I am excited tho. I know that this next week I am being put in a position where I can see what i take for granted everyday. I will see how much i have and how little these people now have b/c of this horrible tragedy. We are having to wear jump suits so that we don't get contaiminated and mask to keep the bacteria away. HOw scary is that..... I also know that God is going to show me something!! How amazing is that!! I know that I am going somewhere that God is leading me!!
These past few weeks haven't been that good for me!! I have tried to be happy just to make others not see the hurt. Only a few know exactly what I am going through...And I honestly don't know what I would do without them!!! But it is stupid petty things that I am upset over compared to what I am about to see!! God is going to show me things that I need to see to realize that it is all just stupid and I need to get over it!!!
I just ask all of you to pray for our group going and ask that God shows us a lot down there!! And for all of us to be safe and stay healthy!!
I will write when i get back!!!!

Well I am home...I came home with Dena yesterday!! she came home monday night and got up yesterday morning and drove down to martin!!! We ate some Chinese and then just hung out..i went to Bio class and then we took a walk around campus for her to see it!! Then we left and came back to tha boro! it was a fun trip back!! LOL!!! I showed her some of my SWEET moves!! LOL!!!! HAHAHA!! Got up this morning and got ready to go eat with my mom...Then we came home and put up the Christmas tree and decorations... and then i just kinda hung out here at home.... Tomorrow I leave to go back to west tn for Turkey day with my Granny and Pap and relatives..Then we are going to go shop in Memphis friday and then saturday we are going to go to my other Grandparents house to eat there!!!!!
tonight was fun!!! I got to see my 3 best friends in the world!!!!! Rachel, Dena, Ashley, and I all went to Marble Slab where we got to catch up with each other and just hang out!! Had a lot of fun and then Nate came which we have some fun there with him to!! But yeah!! It was great for us all to be back together..I can't wait till Christmas Break where we all have around a month to spend together!!!
So tomorrow is Thanksgiving....We give thanks on this day for everything that God has given us..These last few days I have seen a lot.. 2 people from UT Martin have been killed in just the past 3 days.... 2 people.... I saw one of them the night that he died... Right before thanksgiving..It is soo hard to think of what the families are going through...to know that they have to spend thanksgiving trying to decide when to have their son/daughters funeral. I don't think that I could deal with it...
SO I ask you..Please pray for the families of these 2 people..I think that they are going to need it during this time!!
