the very first day of school.

August 11 2005
the official ending of summer.
i got to drive to school and then out to eat.
which isn't that big of a deal to anyone but me.

i think my classes this year are going to be good.
except for the fact that i have 2nd lunch and we don't get to pick our lockers.
however, i got lucky and got friends in all my classes.
and you guys are probably wondering, "who is he this time?"
but a good mystery never hurt anybody.

but all in all, i'm looking forward to this year.
and best of all, my mom isn't making me get a job. or well, not really.

goodbye summer.

August 04 2005
so this summer is almost over.
which is kinda scary, because it flew by.
and yes, time can fly.

i've learned a lot. this summer had its ups and downs.

i learned how to drive, how to cope with "strangers" in your home, how to mambo with the best of them, how to make new friends and keep the old, and ultimately, how to let someone go.

i wouldn't take this summer back for anything.
it was just that great.

"The small things of life were often so much bigger than the great things...the trivial pleasures like cooking, one's home, little poems especially sad ones, solitary walks, funny things seen and overheard."


August 01 2005
so i am feeling a lot better.

and today was a nice break from it all.
sometimes you just need to get out of the house.

i love you guys.
very, very, very much.

everything changed in a day

July 29 2005
my older brother has come to live with us.

this is the first time i have actually talk to the guy in 4 years.

it feels like a stranger is living in my house.

i don't know if i should be happy or well, not.

all of this is one big mess.


July 25 2005
i have nothing to talk about. for the first time in a long, long time i am speechless.

" God gave us memories that we might have roses in December. " -James M. Barrie

" Normal day, Let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, savour you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face into the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky, and want, more than all the world, your return. " -Mary Jean Irion"

In memory everything seems to happen to music. " - Tennessee Williams

a job.

July 18 2005
working for mis padres is just not cutting it anymore. that really stinks.

so now i have to go out in the real world and find an after school job.
i thought my own little world was nifty, that was until my mommy stopped giving me money.

my first pick- boys and girls club.

wish me luck.

oh, i think delta should go and do something before dana leaves, again. POOR DANA!
if you are not a member of delta, the coolest thing since sliced bread AND cubed ice, you are just not cool.

so what is everyone doing thursday around lunch???

come hula by the pool-a

July 15 2005
... i just hope it doesn't rain.

that would be bad. really, really bad.

for my birthday i would like... the moon and a couple of stars and an expensive foreign car.

that would make my day.

the best day in the world.

July 13 2005
my sister "woke me up" at midnight to sing me happy birthday.
my stepdad wrote "happy sweet sixteenth" on my mirror in makeup.
and my mom left a stuffed pig and a birthday card on my steering wheel in the morning.

that + i finally have my license.

i cannot wait till saturday night. and thursday morning.

life is beautiful.

happy birthday to me!

July 11 2005
sweet sixteen and, well nevermind.

i am thinking of staying up till midnight tonight and ring in my birthday with fireworks and a giant ball dropping in my living room. however this is completely unrealistic.

best of all, i don't have to take my driving test. driving school was good for more than just one reason...

and you know what else i actually feel older.
how magical.

my first night back home...

July 03 2005
was a blast. probably the best girl's night out i have ever had with two of my favorite peeps.
"Your going to make me lonesome when you go..."
from lying mood rings, to singing into screw drivers, to listening to the same wonderful song at least 6 times in a row,
we had lots of laughs and gallons of fun.

so yeah. the fourth of july tomorrow. have a good one!

home sweet home

July 02 2005
so i got back yesterday. i miss destin, but i am very happy to be home. very happy.

so yeah, i want to do something tonite, after all i did miss you guys. how does starbucks sound.... maybe around 5 or so?

sand. sun. and lots of fun.

June 28 2005
so i'm sitting here by the pool in the most beautiful beach house in the world getting ready to play pool volleyball. yes i am in heaven, or somewhere close to it.

i have enjoyed boogie boarding, a glass of wine, a cigar, i've spent more money than a gal my age should, i have jumped in the pool... fully clothed, and rediscovered my country roots and my tan.

soon i will be sky diving and shark fishing with the best of them.

but i'd be lying if i said i didn't miss you guys a little bit. i'm coming back on friday.

see y'all then.

edit : i went dancing tonight with my cousins. i will now be able to teach you guys some new moves when i come back.

hives are gone.

June 23 2005
and i am leaving for destin tomorrow night.

good news: the pool is up.
bad news: nobody can swim in it until i come back.

so here is adieu and much love.
i will talk to you when i get back unless there is a computer in the house we are staying in. then i will get to talk to you when i am there.

i cannot wait to make sandcastles, and swim, and do all the other stuff you get to do while you're in flordia.

never take something you're allergic to.

June 22 2005
a very very very bad case of hives.

two different shots and a blood test later and it still won't go away. my mom is threatening to take me to the hospital.

it gets worse.

i'm leaving for destin in two days.
i must be the luckiest person in the world. or that might be the drugs talking.

love is in the air...

June 17 2005
but who?

one of the many great mysteries in life.
one clue though... most of you don't know him.
but, you guys would like him, too.

mmm, picnic.

June 16 2005
so yeah a picnic tomorrow sounds really good right about now...

good way to spend an afternoon with aimee and me.

not really sure about the particulars but just
call me if you wanna come.

i hate lazy.

June 15 2005
i am the laziest person in the world during the summer time.

and i hate it.

not summer time but being lazy.
i have even resorted to washing my laundry and cleaning the entire house.

next time you see me i might be insane....

they're bulding a pool though, so pool party at lauren's house!


June 10 2005
last day of driving school.

lots of new friends, and minor accident, and a bunch of ping pong.
that pretty much summed it up.

30 hours later i am a better driver.



June 08 2005
so while eating ice cream late last night, aimee and i compiled the ultimate list for summer. as you can imagine lots and lots of fun.

1.Go skinny dipping. We don't know where or when, but that's what makes it fun.

2.Stay up for a whole 24 hours. this goes without exclamation.

3. Have a massive food fight.

4. Try all 31 flavors of Baskin Robins ice cream.

5. Watch the complete series of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter in one sitting.

6. Try everything on the Starbucks menu.

7. Create our own full length feature film about our summer.

the last two are super confidential, and all in all just a big secret. so you probably wouldn't want to know anyways...


June 06 2005

so all the cool kids (i.e. aimee and me) are going to be at starbucks tomorrow night @ 6.

then we will be going to the fair or the mall, depending on the weather.

any questions... my number: 481----6423

come or die.

love you guys!
