A Tribute

In Loving Memory of:
Finn (Finnigan) the Fish

Although we didn't know each other long... (12 days to be exact)  I still loved you...
You weren't even around long enough for me to get a picture of you.
And even though I've had fish before, you will have a special place in my heart.  Right there next to Snowy the Hermit Crab, and Gerald the Duck.  I hope your ride on the great big Sewer Line Coaster was a blast!

Finnigan the Fish died today of unknown causes.  He was a good fish and never jumped out of his bowl.  He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.  May his little spirit rest in peace.

Currently: I am. I want. I'm not.

I enjoy doing absolutely nothing but no longer than an hour or two at a time... :)
I recently rediscovered my love for home grown string beans.
I can't work on one project longer than an hour at a time.  I have crafting ADD.
I got a pet fish.  His name is Finn.  Finnigan for when he's in trouble.
I buy shoes too often to ever wear them out.
I constantly slip off into daydreams.
I love writing what I want.  Not what I'm told to write.
I'm excited  for football games and pep rallies and fall leaves and jackets and pumpkins.
I'm adventurous.

I want to travel.  There's a very large part of me that wants to do nothing more than take off on a grand adventure.
I want a dog.
I want to witness a major historic event.
To play the cello.
Summer to never end.
To live in a grand old house in England.

I'm not a wonderfully good person.  I'm not a horribly bad person. I'm me and there's pretty much no other way to describe it.
I'm not especially fond of unhappy people.
I'm not excited for tests and projects and deadlines and papers and teachers.
I won't do something I know is wrong, or stupid.
I positively do not, will not and never will like seafood.
I'm stubborn.  I won't give in easily.  Sometimes I won't give in at all.

That's what I am.  That's what I want.  That's what I'm not.  How about you?

So Close...

I have one more day of school.  

O. N. E.

This little tidbit of information is better than the sun shining all day long for once (Which hasn't happened in a very long time.) 

Since approximately five months ago, a lot has gone on.  A lot.

Well, let see I:

  • Took my 1st AP Test.  Ever. It sucked.
  • Went on my 1st date. Ever.  It rocked.
  • Went on my 2nd date.  It rocked too.
  • Passed all of my classes (And with a little persuasion of one or two teachers I'll have a 4.0!)
  • Became horribly addicted to naps.
  • Became even more of a procrastinator.  :)
  • And more, but I can't exactly think about it right now...  So onto pictures!
And since I'm lazy and I really don't want to scan a picture onto my computer, I've only got pictures from the second date.  But it was a blast, so here ya go.

Meet Trevin.  He's pretty Freaking Hilarious.  And he makes a great date.

Meet my Morp (Backwards Prom) Group.  We pretty much had a party.

Meet Bronwen, my AP Euro Textbook buddy. (P.S. This class is over!)  We pretty much had a party there too.  Oh, and Audrey's arm there in the left.

Well, that's it for probably another 5 months... Which might not be so much of an exaggeration...

Welcome to 2011.  I hope you enjoy your stay here for the next 364 days. I know there will be tears and fears, joy and stress, hope and sorrow, meetings and partings, new friends and old.  But hey, that's just life.

11 goals for '11
  1. Wake up earlier on the weekends.  Maybe this way I'll be able to actually accomplish something on Saturdays.
  2. Stay more organized. I love having a clean room, but it's a struggle for me to keep it clean longer than a week.  Let's try for at least two, yes? Yes.
  3. Less computer time, more non-procrastinating time. This is a huge goal for me, seeing as how I am the biggest procrastinator on the planet.  This list you're reading right now?  Also procrastination.  YUP!
  4. Become better friends with my brother.  Why the shocked face?  I want a better relationship with my brother, and become better friends before he goes on his mission.
  5. Write in my journal more.  If you were to read my journal right now, you might see one entry for every month.  Maybe.
  6. Read 11 Classic novels. I'm not talking Pride and Prejudice or A Christmas Carol, real classics that I normally struggle to get through.  Wish me luck!
  7. Learn to play the accordion.  Yes, you did read that correctly.  The accordion.  I've wanted to for a while, I just haven't actually done it.  Just, you wait, by December I'll be serenading you with my inspiring talent.
  8. Be optimistic. I'm not saying I'm the most pessimistic person on the planet, but I'm definitely not the most jubilant, that's for sure!
  9. Save money. I'm definitely not good at saving money, so I'm going to save, not spend.  I just have to remind myself of that every time I see a really cute pair of shoes or want a new book.
  10. Be more daring and adventurous. No more quiet, scared fearful of what others think.  I'm ready to take a chance on something and have a possibility of it not turning out so well.
  11. Be satisfied with what I have.  No lie, this one's going to be hard.  Everyone I know wants something more than they've got, so my goal is to make the best of what I have.
So, that's my list for this year, how about yours?
