I have three class as the local community college and they take up a ton of time. I have news for those of you out there who don't know this already: Never take and English class and a Math class at the same time in college. It is a time sucker. I really, really like my English class. My prof. is so funny. I am also taking study skills 101. Class starts everyday with a useless fact and a stupid joke. Today's useless fact was that people who live in the city have thicker nose hair than those who live in the country. There were some very disgusted girls. I thought it was funny. I also have Math 97 because I scored too low on the compass test to get into a college level math class, but then again I also suck at math.
Seeing as I am taking English and Math at the same time I have hardly enough time left after homework to do anything fun. Like writing my blog! *shakes head* I know, it's very sad. I will also have a job soon. I have orientation for work tomorrow. I think work will be fun and I'm going to be working with at least one person that I know.
Now, the part that most likely caught your eye. My ex-boyfriend. I haven't seen him or talked to him since he graduated from high school in 2007. But oh wait! We go to the same local college now and I saw him today. My heart started to beat faster and I was panicking on the inside while I talked to him. I kept my cool on the outside, just like and Aes Sedai from the Wheel of Time series. It was a short conversation, but it left me all brain scrambled the rest of the day. Sounds great, huh?
So, college is awesome (except for the small possibility of running into my ex again) and I love my classes, excluding the homework. I think this school year is going to be fun.

Twilight (the movie) is now scheduled to come out on the day Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was to come out. Yes, I am also a hard core fan of Twilight, but Harry Potter will be foremost in all of my books and movies. They are my favorite and I have been following Harry's story since fourth grade.
I know, I know I'll just have to accept the fact that I'll have to trade my greatest love for my second greatest, but it just isn't right in my mind. Now my count down is seriously screwed up, for both events!!
How could you do this!? Why, WB, why? I feel as I just found out my birthday was going to be a year late. How could they do this? Do they really want one of the biggest fan bases against them? Well, probably not, but maybe they weren't thinking that...Maybe they weren't thinking at all. Just like all the other movie/tv companies. They just don't think. Don't even get me started on CBS and Moonlight. *shakes head*
I am just so sad.

Lisa, I just want you to know that I love you. You have helped me through so many things and I love every little thing you have ever given me. I will miss you, but I know that you are in a better place with the ones you love that had gone on before you. I just want to let you know that Suzie misses you everyday and still looks around for you when the door opens. I love you very much and I'm sorry that I never really said it to you before you passed. Hugs and Kisses.
Now, on July 29 was the funeral mass, yes, she was Catholic, and her mother was dressed so strangely. *shakes head* There is a reason we call her Crazy Cathy... But the night before at the Vigil, Crazy Cathy had this long shawl on and seriously looked like a witch. It was a little frightening. At the funeral she was wearing, I really don't know what, but her granddaughter said that she needed a shawl, and I leaned over and said, "Then she would really look like a witch." We had a good laugh over that.
Once again, I am living through history and I will not be able to participate. Breaking Dawn is coming out tonight at 12:01 and I won't be able to get it until tomorrow afternoon at the latest. It sucks, because I wanted to go to the midnight release and I have found myself on a trip and not able to go. The same thing happened last summer with both the Harry Potter movie release and the Harry Potter book release. It really is suckish. So now I shall pout until after midnight and know that my friends have the book before me.

Sounds exciting, doesn't it? My thoughts exactly. *shakes head* Fire watching is exactly what I did last night. The fire burned about a 1/4 of a mile while we watched a certain part. Other parts were further because the wind was blowing really hard. Let's just say that the people who have very expensive houses on the top of a near by ridge were getting a little worried. *laughs*
So far the only evacuation notices are at a level one. There are only three levels: one, two, and three. One is stay alert. Two is start packing up you valuables. And three is get the hell out.
My prayers are with everyone who is close to the fire. I hope that the firefighters stay safe, the families in danger stay safe and that everyone keeps a cool head. Two of my friends live close to the fire and are on evacuation notice level one. Also my uncle works for the forest service. He quite often is called out on fires. I just want everyone to stay safe and out of harms way.
Anyways, you now know what hicks (just kidding) do for fun...They watch wildfires!

Overall the guys aren't so bad. I know most of them already. But the new guys are getting picked on. *shakes head* The newest guy is very nice and willing to help, but is slow. Not mentally slow, but physically. They were picking up empties and the person driving the tractor sent the newbie over three rows of trees to pick up a stack of empties. There was also talk of tying him to a tree. I sort of feel sorry for him. Not to mention that I think he is cute. Well so does the 11 year old I'm watching. *rolls eyes*
I never want to see cherries on a conveyor belt ever again! I still feel the motion of the belt and see the sea of red Attica cherries. *shakes head* It was horrible! I feel bad for anyone who has to sort cherries - or any fruit for the matter - for every day of the week, because it is their full time job. It sucks and I hate it!

For one Sand ponies only have four legs, while pilkas have six. Sand ponies live in the desert and are built for speed and heat. Pilkas live further north and have shaggy hair. They are fast, but they aren't built for the desert.
Anyways, in the newest Droon book, you run in to the Snitchers. The Rat-Faced Snitchers. Of Zoop. And these Snitchers ride Sand ponies. One particular Snitcher - the lead Snitcher for that matter - is riding a Sand pony. I mean the picture in the book even shows him on a Sand pony.
Here is what is said.
"A single Sand pony stepped forward." That's the leader (his name is Captian Plundit) confronting the main characters. The next thing you know the book is saying, "Captian Plundit stood on his pilka's saddle." And, "Even standing full height on the back of a pilka..." "The robber leader was small, but he proved to be a very good pony rider." Then later, "Plundit's Sand pony stood in the passage ahead, stamping lazily on the floor." (All of these quotes are from The Treasure of the Orkins by Tony Abbott)
Now you can see that there is a problem. *shakes head* It was a great book and that is the first mistake I have found in all 37 Droon books that are out. It caused my friend and I a lot of good laughs.
On to other non important things, I have another babysitting job (not the same girls as last year...thank goodness) and I also have a part-timeish cherry sorting job at the "family" orchard. The family I work for has an orchard that I worked in two years ago...I didn't like it. I mean there were cute guys, but you know how guys are when they are together and you are the only girl...Or maybe you don't...In other words, let's just not go there.
The oldest girl I watch actually works in the orchard for her grandfather, stacking lugs (my old job). Lugs? What are lugs you say? You know when you drive past a cherry orchard during cherry season and you see those orange box things at the bottom of the tree. Those orange box things are lugs. The pickers put the cherries in the lugs, the swamp crew weigh the lugs, then dump the lugs in to bins (those big fruit bins you see on the back of semis and at fruit sheds. Sometimes they are white or red, wood or plastic.), and I would pick up the empty lugs and stack them in stacks of 12 or 11...it depended on the year. It was loads of fun.
Seeing as the oldest girl works in the orchard, I then have to either sort cherries or watch the younger girl (both of which are loads of fun too). As you can see I'm just having fun all around!

Nice picture huh? This was my hair all done up nice and pretty. I loved it. (Many thanks to Jen's Mom!)
Prom was great! I was in a gorgeous dress and I got to wear high heels, which made my about 6' tall, but that is beside the point. I had a great time with my friends and I wish that my senior year doesn't end next week.
Now, babies on the other hand is a little more strange. There is only one baby in question and that is my English teacher's baby girl that she had on April 13, 2008. She is the cutest thing ever and I got to hold her today! She is so little and so precious and I enjoyed every minute of it.

First things first. I am almost done with my senior year of high school....Thank God! This year has been crazy. From advisory to our stupid senior project (one word: tri-fold) and between not having a place to eat at lunch this year has rocked! *sarcasm noted* And I even had a meltdown...In front of my whole Spanish 2 class (okay, so there are only 16 people in my Spanish class...jeez).
Second, a close family friend, who has had cancer, now has cancer in their brain. I'm praying for them but even I know the end is near. I just have to be thankful for all the good times I have spent with them.
Third, I just had the best weekend ever! My cousin was over at my grandparents house and I got to go and see her! It was so much fun. We went to Prince Caspian together and (warning!! spoiler alert) we both agreed that Susan and Caspian should not get together! And the added battle scene was totally unnecessary, even if it was awesome. Other than that the movie was great! We also spent most of Saturday night watching You Tube videos...Salad Fingers was quite interesting, but not needed, if you know what I mean.
I also introduced Twilight to my cousin and hopefully she will try and read the book and become as hooked as I now am. The only sad thing is that they aren't filming the movie in Forks...I have acutally been there and I find it a little sad that they couldn't have at least gone there for some of the movie.
My friend and I are going to see Prince Caspian tonight for only a dollar! I can't wait to see it again! It was so much fun the last time with my cousin and I really do enjoy seeing hot males on the big screen...LOL!
