Guys, Guys and More Guys!!!
That's so great your time at Six Flags and weekend went so well! That sounds like so much fun!! (:
Thanks :-( Yeah this year hasn't been so great for me so far but one piece of good news...after even MORE confusion and complication my schedule DID get changed and I got to switch into that other history class. My guidance counselor just emailed me a few hours ago to say she switched me so I haven't actually been to that class yet. But when I was in the library the other day this senior guy who was sitting next to me told me who the best teacher was for the class I was trying to switch into and I got him so that's good (: I'm a little worried about being in a CP class for history because usually the kids in that are more the "messed up/going nowhere" crowd...but I honestly feel with Algebra II and Chem..taking an easier level of history will lessen my load a lot.
But yeah my guidance counselor was SO not nice about this and neither was the secretary in the office..I don't get it I mean I was being totally nice and polite to them even tho they were making my life harder...oh well. At least that's all settled.
Yeah you are totally right..my mom always says that good things and experiences only come to people with a positive attitude so that's just what I'm going to have to have now. Everything's far from perfect but it really could be worse. Plus we both HAVE to have amazing junior years..nothing can get in the way of that lol
So MY LAPTOP FINALLY CAME YESTERDAY!!! I haven't had a chance to set it all up yet but it's pretty awesome (: I love how the keys light up and I love the pink color I got, so that's really good (:
Plus it will be a place for just MY things finally, which is great too!
And yes I am really excited for our labor day parade/party too! We sorta got cheated out of it last year because of Hurricane Irene..so our whole town is extra pumped! :-D
Oh and tomorrow I'm going to Splash Down again with my dad and sister so that should be fun too (one last summer memory *tear*) :-D
I actually haven't had hardly any homework yet..and what I have had I have gotten done in my frees. That is my goal for this year, to really use my free periods wisely and get as much done as I can so that I'm not up working all night (like last year) lol
Omg yes being upperclassmen is just amazing! I didn't think I would feel any older since I am as tall (or shorter) then most freshmen :p But I do..and we don't need library passes anymore and we get free periods..and it's awesome!! Plus getting to show all of my friends (that I made in camp last summer) who are going into 9th grade around and helping them to adjust feels amazing because I remember being the lost little freshman like it was yesterday :-D
I'm positive you are going to have a great year!! (: It's great you have a positive attitude about it going into it..I sorta did but I'm never overly thrilled to go back to school lol Honestly I think being optimistic is so key and something I still really need to work on.
Thanks so much, I hope it goes great for us both too. Let's promise eachother right now that no matter how bad our classmates, teachers, busses..ANYTHING is, we will find away to look past it and make the year great anyway!! (:
That was SO sweet of the doctors and nurses at the hospital to show their appreciation for you in such kind ways! They sound so nice...and that volunteer job sounds like it was an amazing experience (one I wish I had lol). Will you return to work there?
Oh awesome have fun this weekend!! (:
Do you know what you're wearing on the first day of school? (:
maggie183 on 8/31/2012 8:37:20 PM
Ok so I wrote back last Friday and then again on Sunday..both times it didn't post :-( And then I've been super busy with the start of school since then..anyway SOOOO sorry this is almost a week later lol Sooo anyway how was Six Flags?! I am beyond jealous that you are still on summer vaca, I hope you are having fun and soaking up your last week of summer!!
School has NOT been going well for me, sadly. My classes are all really bad (ok except for child development..yeah thats about it) :-( I have really bad groups of kids and then my teachers aren't great either. And then I get home over an hour later then last year because of being the last one off on my new bus :/ It's all just been SOOOO bad :-( I'm trying to switch to a lower level (CP) for history because I got the hardest teacher and honestly I'm not that great in history and I just feel like in order to succeed I would do better at a CP level. But my guidance counselor is being SO unaccommodating about everything. My parents are so mad about this, they are like "why is it an 'unreasonable request' to ask to switch to a lower level class'"? Omg, honestly I have had it with my school right now. Oh yeah and no classes with the guy I like for the 3rd year in a row too...soooo could this get any worse?! Sorry I'm being SO pessimistic, I'm probably depressing/annoying you..lol Maybe it will get better somehow.
Sooo lets see..happier topics...oh yeah my laptops supposed to be delivered tomorrow!! YAY!! (:
It shipped way before they predicted so that was great!
So what have you been up too? I REALLY hope the start of school is much much better for you!!!
maggie183 on 8/29/2012 7:26:43 PM
Good for you Um summer was good except I worked a lot so it kind of wasted my summer but I made a lot of money so that's good. And it was a short summer but oh well nothing I can do about it now. Don't you go back Wednesday?
topchef88 on 8/25/2012 7:34:42 PM
Yeah I am the exact same way! It's like all of the grades my sister has been in before have seemed like so long ago for me and she seemed SO young. But now that she's in 8th grade..it's like I could never look at 8th grade as young. I remember it SO clearly it feels like yesterday and we definitely weren't young in 8th grade. Haha, I actually started crying last night because it just suddenly struck me as so sad that she was going into 8th grade and that it has really been 3 years since I was that age :-( My sister always has the best luck when it comes to school and schedules too it's INSANE! She got all amazing teachers (none of which I had but I know from my friends) this year and her two best friends have every single class with her but one. It's like HOW does that even happen?! And yet she's not excited for school..she's like "I have a feeling this year isn't going to be a good one for me and that you are going to have an amazing year" (to me) lol And I'm just like "alright well that makes absolutely NO sense but I'll take it!" :-D
Yeah that makes total sense, you would really need to have a job or SOME source of income in order to pay for gas so I think that worked out for the best for ya
Yeah my sisters school gives them their supply list in the summer too..I guess that's more a middle school thing because in high school it totally depends on your class/teacher for what you will need.
OMG THAT IS INSANE! My sisters birthday is April 13th..they are so close! Wait so I'm a month older then you and your sister is like less then a month older then my sister...wowowow lol
Yeah I know!! I wonder if we were both at the doctors at the same exact time..I kinda hope we weren't because I would be REALLY creeped out if we were :p
Aww I HATE shots! I do NOT do good with needles they make me so lightheaded that I have to lie down or else I faint :-( No luckily I didn't need a shot..I actually haven't needed one since I was like 13, they said like after your 13 year old physical it's more optional or something..idk lol
I'm sure you will be able to find a job next summer! And what you did this summer sounds so great and valuable too
OMG so yeah, this laptop thing is driving me CRAZY! There was all of this confusion with the bank and I had to get my money onto my moms credit card and we kept like forgetting to go to the bank because we have been so busy. Even tho this has totally been like top priority for me. And so we finally got that all worked out and then my mom realized she shouldn't let me make such a huge decision like this by myself and so she decided she would ask her friends husband about the model I was looking at because he is an EXPERT on laptops and technology and stuff..like he does it for a living. So she kept forgetting to call about that and then finally this afternoon I like cornered her and was like "I'm sorry but you HAVE to call your friend this afternoon or else I'm just going to buy it because it got great reviews and I have been waiting for like a month". And so she called and got a hold of him like 2 hours ago and he said it's a great laptop and he recommends it (yay!). So now all systems are go..I'm actually going to order it tonight..funny you brought it up!! It's not even going to ship until August 30th tho because it's back ordered (SOOO bummed). But at least I'm ordering it! Soo yeah, sorry I doubt you wanted to hear my life story..lol
Other then getting supplies I am prepared! Mentally and clothes-wise!! haha I mean I'm sad summer is ending but I am ready to go back too..which is good because as of today school starts in exactly 1 WEEK!! AHHHH! I hope my sisters right and this is an "amazing" year for me! lol I hope you have a great year too!! (:
maggie183 on 8/21/2012 7:40:03 PM
Haha that's so funny! I've never heard of that movie..I'm not big on scary movies lol
That is SO funny we were both obsessed with Hannah Montana during the same year!! I got all of her books, watched all the episodes, had all the cds (knew all the words to every song)..too!! And everyone (boys and girls) would make fun of me for it all the time..and still do lol
I never got to go to one of her concerts tho..I saw that movie of her concert in 3D in the theater but that's about it :/ lol
And yeah I know EXACTLY what you mean! Kids now a days are into such bad/more mature things..it's crazy! Like the kids I worked with at camp..I mean almost all of them were totally innocent but there were a lot of them that were like 8 years old and would sing SUCH inappropriate songs. It's like when I was 8, I didn't have access to that kind of stuff lol I think the things we liked when we were younger were much better and more appropriate for our age..kids are trying to grow up to fast nowadays. Like to this day I don't like watching super inappropriate or shocking things. I 'd never watch Jersey Shore..lol
I would do anything to be younger again too! I know EXACTLY what you mean..I don't want to get ANY older! 16 even seems to old. I feel like I'm always going to be a 13/14 year old at heart.
That is a fair/nice deal your parents came up with about getting you a car..it's nice to just know you are going to get one eventually!
That's awesome! I'm pretty much finished bts shopping too. Although I actually haven't really started my supplies shopping..I got a few things but I won't really know what I need until the first day. I hate that tho, like the afternoon on the first day of school is SO jam packed. You have to get all of those various permission slips and welcome letters signed (I never fail to loose one or two throughout the day and then find myself in a super stressful situation that night) and join the mob scene at the store to get all of your supplies.
Yeah, that's awesome I hope you have fun at Six Flags! Six Flags is in Massachusetts right?
Aww that's awful you got SO many mosquito bites! That is never fun..they are SO itchy!! At least it was worth it, since you had a fun time! (:
That is SO weird that your sister just got her braces off..and she is the same age as my sister!! We live like identical lives..almost lol I wish we actually knew eachother..I just know you and I would be such good friends and your sister and my sister would be friends and we could all hang out all the time..haha :-D When is your sisters bday? That would be SO funny if it were close to my sisters because you and I have bdays so close! lol
Actually I don't skate, just my sister does. I just go to cool off and watch the skaters which some of them are SOOOOO talented you wouldn't believe it! I have to be honest tho that I probably couldn't skate to save my life :p I used to go skating all the time with my family but I still could never get the hang of it. Something about balancing on thin blades on a sheet of ice and then attempting to move..idk its not my thing lol
That pizza party at the hospital sounds like fun, why wouldn't more people go?! That's SO cool you did that this summer, my bff volunteered at a hospital last year and it sounds like such a cool/important job. Plus, idk why but I always have loved the atmosphere of hospitals. Like when I'm inside one I feel so safe and taken care of.
OMG wait you had a doctors appointment today?!?! SO DID I! This is SO freaky..we have like everything in common and I swear I haven't made one thing up! haha
Going to the beach with your best friend sounds like so much fun! I wish I lived close enough to a beach to go with a friend! The closet beach is like an hour (maybe more) away and it's not even a very good one..there are A LOT of jellyfish. So I always go to your state ;) lol
Haha no worries my messages are always long too and I love long messages (:!
maggie183 on 8/21/2012 12:38:17 PM
Well at my school junior year is supposes to be the hardest but the school right next to mine it's sophomore year. So yeah just go in with a positive look
topchef88 on 8/20/2012 5:02:24 PM
Yeah, my towns labor day parade really is a lot of fun! We have pictures of when I was like 1 years old watching it..gotta love traditions lol
Yeah exactly, it feels like a farewell summer party..which is sad in a way but we have all these kids at my house and we're all like talking about school and our schedules so that makes it fun
Oh that's cool, maybe you will convince your parents to go! lol If not, it's still nice to have a day off from school..oh wait you won't have started school yet..I'm SO jealous!! lol
I was in Bristol a few months ago..it's so awesome how we live so close that we like know about the places eachother is talking about :-D!
That's so sad, I really hope you get to go to a concert soon!! We have this really big concert stadium/excel center in Hartford CT, so that's how I get to go to a lot..almost all bands/artists come here. Does your state have a place like that? At least you got to go to a Hannah Montana concert..lol When I was in 6th grade I would have given the world to go see Hannah Montana (I was a tad bit obsessed which my friends and classmates always so kindly remind me of :/ lol) I went to a Miley Cyrus concert in 8th grade but she wasn't Hannah anymore and by that point I didn't even really like Miley anymore..haha
My dads like semi allergic to chocolate! That sucks :-( It seems so hard to like love a food and THEN find out you may be allergic :-( At least I have no idea what nuts/peanut butter tastes like so idk what I'm missing out on lol
Yeah I thought that was the policy everywhere too..but this is what my mom found out. Alright I'm getting skeptical now, as soon as I finish writing to you I am DOUBLE checking this haha
And no sadly there is no possible way (unless I win the $ or something) that I am getting a car. My parents definitely do NOT have the money and we don't have any old cars that nobody drives anymore that we could fix up..like oh so many of my friends do. It's crazy, like EVERYONE I know are getting cars. I live in a wealthy town tho so I guess it's to be expected but it makes me so jealous!! Like what I would give to drive to school and leave my bus days behind me!! Are you getting a car?!?
Thanks, my weekend has been pretty good I didn't really do anything yesterday but today I went to the mall and did a pretty great job (if I do say so myself) bargain hunting for back to school (: I found the most perfect jeans at American Eagle..I always struggle finding jeans and they never end up fitting just right (I'm short so that's probably the problem) but I honestly think I found that perfect pair (: So that's good..those cost me $30 but it was worth it .
Are you still shopping for back to school clothes? Do you know what you're wearing on the first day? I'm still debating..lol
I'm not sure when I'm going to splashdown..I think it may be the weekend after school starts. My dad and sis are all into the idea of having one last summer event to look forward to after school starts. Me..I think it might feel a little sad/out of place going there after being back at school but I'm not going to complain because it's so nice of my dad to spend the money to go twice this summer. We usually just go once.
That get together sounds like so much fun! Did you watch the hunger games outside? That sounds SO summery..a bunch of friends sitting around a fire on an August night..SO fun!
I hope your softball banquet wasn't to boring!!!! What are your plans for the week (besides six flags on friday..that sounds awesome!)? I don't really have much of any actually. My sister gets her braces put on tomorrow..I'm SO glad to be done with that!! I had braces for over 2 years tho back in middle school :-(
And yeah that's about it..just hanging at the ice arena a lot of the time. Oh wow I never told you my sisters been taking figure skating lessons for over a year now and she's trying to make this competitive team for this year. The tryouts are on our first day of school (Aug 28th) so she has to fit in a lot of practice time. I usually go too because on hot days being in the rink is really nice
Well, I hope the few hours left of your weekend are GREAT too! lol
maggie183 on 8/19/2012 7:43:32 PM
I know but I am really happy because even though I still haven't really done any I got an extra date becuase of some textbook problems other kids have, it made my day becuase it was too much for one night Thanks! I hope you don't either
topchef88 on 8/19/2012 6:25:57 PM
I bet you it is And yeah I just keep getting more work :/ Hopefully something will get better. Thanks though
topchef88 on 8/18/2012 6:06:22 PM
Haha exactly! Wow you are SO lucky you go back after Labor Day! Does your town have a labor day parade? I know most don't but it is this HUGE thing in my town (actually I my street haha) I live on the main street in my town so basically my entire town (which is pretty big) gathers on my street to watch this parade which is like 3 hours long. It's really fun tho because ever since I was little my family has had a huge labor day party where we serve breakfast, lunch and have our house open for most of the day. So my friends come and LOTS of other people and it's really fun It's always nice to have something fun to look forward to at BTS time ;)
I'm totally with you!! We only have 2 mores years of school, gotta make it count
Aw lol I go to A LOT of concerts mostly because my dad is pretty obsessed with them hehe He grew up going to concerts and went to them all the time when he was a teenager so whenever my sister and I like a band or artist he gets tickets. My mom on the other hand hates concerts...so it's a thing we do with my dad.
But yeah I know what you mean, idk how my dad finds the $ for all of these concerts because they are EXPENSIVE!! It was so awesome last summer when he realized he had a connection with someone in charge of Selena Gomez's tour (or something like that) and we got 2nd row seats and got to meet her/get our pictures taken with her!! It was like, something like that NEVER happens to me it was awesome! I wish I could show you that pic..actually I came out pretty horrible because it was like in the middle of a heat wave and we had been waiting in this line outside for like 2 hours so we were all sweaty..but whatever its still an amazing thing to have done, and I'm really grateful
Ugh that sounds like such a bad situation with your friends house! Because it's hard to like say it's the smoke that's making you cough without insulting them. That happened to me with my old piano teacher lol I'm sensitive to cigarette smoke, my mom is like FULL BLOWN allergic tho. Like her throat will close up if she's exposed to it.
Do you still go over that friends house?
I've tried so many allergy meds but none of them have really worked..but I'm gonna be trying this kind my doctor recommended so hopefully it will work! I have SO many allergies tho so I'm used to it. I'm allergic to nuts/peanuts, cats, dust, pollen, raw carrots..yep lol
I would give anything to get rid of my nut allergy tho, that is the worst. My whole life I've had to ask about the ingredients wherever I go and a lot of the time just not be able to eat things (like bday cake at partys)..ughhh.
Omg I could NEVER forget GL either. I vow to never forget it! lol I should like become a mod or something, this site is like my life :p
Wow that's weird Rhode Islands driving policy is so different from CT! Yeah, I hope I will feel ready and prepared within 4 months. I'm gonna try really hard tho!
That is SO awesome you are taking your road test so soon! I know you will do great, you've been practicing and working hard on that for a long time!
Sooo yeah..there was something else I was gonna say but now I totally forget what it was :p (happens to me a lot)..hope you're having a fun weekend!! (:
maggie183 on 8/18/2012 1:09:00 PM
Oh I forgot to answer your question..I can get my license in December because I'm taking the maximum drivers ed class..30 hours. So I can get my license within 4 months instead of 6
maggie183 on 8/16/2012 11:21:35 AM
Yeah, so many people on GL have gone back already! And I thought August 28th was early..lol Well actually it IS early for my town, we usually go back at the beginning of September (actually we ALWAYS do..what gives?!) :-D
Yeah same here, I've actually ALWAYS had a negative attitude about junior year. I think because when I was younger my babysitter was a junior and she would rave on and on about how junior year is the hardest of your years of school and how bad it was and everything..haha She was really nice I don't think she was trying to freak me out..I was only 10 but that always stuck with me haha But anyway now that I'm actually STARTING junior year, it's like I'm ready for it you know??
OMG YESS that will be so fun talking about prom dresses!! I am SO excited for prom..I just really hope someone I like asks me!! But I have a good feeling about that and this year ;)
Yeah I heard Taylors new song yesterday morning! Haha I had the radio on in my bedroom and the dj announced that he was playing Taylors new song and that she had a new album coming out and I started freaking out and turned the volume up so loud..I totally forgot that it was like 7:30 in the morning and my mom was still asleep..oops lol Anyway I am SO excited!! She is my all time favorite singer! Did I tell you I went to her concert during her Speak Now tour in June 2011? It was so fun (: And I agree..just the name of her new album "Red" does NOT sound like her typical stuff.
Omg that all sounds like SOO much fun!! (: I don't know that group..I'm gonna google them tho haha
As of now I don't have any plans for the weekend..my bff is coming home from her 2 week vaca in Alaska late tonight tho so I'll probably be doing something with her. Actually I think their family might be having my fam over for dinner because my sister and I have been taking care of their pets and plants while they were away and they mentioned that we could all get together so they could pay us..lol The only down side to going to her house tho is that I am SOOO allergic to her cats :p I'm allergic to all cats but I have never met cats I'm more allergic to then hers which is AWFUL!! Everytime I'm at her house I'm sneezing my head off and having an asthma attack :-( haha But my moms going to get this new kind of allergy medicine for me to try before going there so hopefully that will work.
Oh and I feel the EXACT same about GL..whenever I'm upset or have had a hard day this site NEVER fails to cheer me up! Its just such a nice community..I can't IMAGINE not going on this site. But I guess at some point u have to be to old for it..aw that's sad lol :-( We have to exchange emails when we stop going on here!! I can't imagine leaving this site before the end of high school tho..I just love it to much! And the friends I've made on here are ahhhhmazing ;)
maggie183 on 8/15/2012 6:17:45 PM
Was it from the dream out loud line? haha becuase that's where I got mine from! Haha, I just had my first day of school today and it was the worst and I got some of the hardest teachers and have so much work already
topchef88 on 8/13/2012 8:09:32 PM
Yes it's a promise..we will work hard and succeed in 11th grade! woohoo! lol
Wow yeah that does sound stressful to have so many things going on last year! I don't have much after school planned for this year except this club I'm joining at my school (Future Teachers of America), drivers ed, tutoring once a week...that's about it ;)
Ikr I can't believe they let you post the name of a town and I've tried to like a million times and its been deleted everytime! I noticed other people got away with that also on here..so I guess it's just me :-(
Yeah I've thought of that!! It will be SO cool talking about the colleges we are applying too and be like WOW we've been talking on GL for like 4 years! Awesome! When did we meet eachother on here..was that 9th grade I think? And yeah I think it's so fun having an online friend!! My mom of course is totally against the whole talking to people you don't know online thing but this isn't really like that because this site is so safe
Yeah this year has some major good things to look forward to! Prom and drivers license!! YAY!!! (: I get my license in December since I am doing the maximum hours of drivers ed.
And yeah I was mad at my mom at first like "WHY COULDNT YOU HAVE REMEMBERED TO MAKE THAT CALL?!" But then I was ok about it because it did turn out for the best since my friend and I can take the class together now
Yeah I'm so excited to get my laptop! I can order it on Wednesday after the paychecks and money goes through at the bank and I put it onto my moms credit card to order online..it's sorta a complicated process lol
That sounds like SO fun for the rest of summer! I've actually never been to six flags believe it or not :p
I don't have any HUGE plans..basically just going to Lake Compounce this week, going back to Rhode Island for the beach one more time, my dads taking my sister and I to Splash Down Beach in NY again..actually that's pretty good :-P
My two best friends are FINALLY getting home from their vacations towards the end of the week so hopefuly I can do some stuff with them the next week (aka the week before school ;() One of my friends has been on a 2 week cruise in Alaska and the other one has been on Myrtle (idk if I spelled that right) Beach in South Carolina for 2 weeks.
Soo yeah that's about it!! Omg so the bus routes were posted today..it's so sad my bus situation for the year is horrible! Idk if I told you about this but my town used to have privatly owned busses owned by the drivers in my town. It was that way since Kindergarten and we all know the drivers names and have been on the same busses since we started school. Then at the end of last year the pta or whoever realized that our town could be saving so much money if we hired a bus company. So they fired all of the drivers in our town which was SO sad because they all lost their jobs and we LOVED them!!
I was SO used to my busses and it was great. My morning bus driver was SO nice, I was the last one on and he played great music. My afternoon bus I was the first one off because my driver let me get off across the street from my house where this other kid in my grade got off. I live on the main SUPER busy street in my town so no driver is going to let me do that now. I have an HOUR long ride in the afternoon (LAST ONE OFF) and the bust routes totally changed which is sad ;( SIGH. Hopefuly I have better luck with my schedule..right now I have AWFUL teachers but I'm going in next week to change it, FINGERS CROSSED that that will go well! 2 mores week until school..I'm more nervous then excited now, but hopefuly it will be a good year..with good teachers/classes for both of us!!
maggie183 on 8/13/2012 1:16:00 PM
Oh my gosh my favorite shirt is from her line, it doesn't even look like it though. It's weird becuase most of her stuff is kind of the same but the one I got is this really light pink shirt with a line of ruffles down the front and it's kind of big so you tuck it in and pull it out a little. And it has these super super tiny flowers spaced out. I don't know it kind of sounds so ugly here haha but I love it
topchef88 on 8/11/2012 8:05:48 PM
Yeah I know what you mean, I hope you can find a job too! (: And I know I am SOOO nervous for Algebra II...even tho Geometry was really super hard for me..Algebra I was worse, so this will NOT be easy. But I just have to stay organized, focused, practice a little every day and get help when I need it and hopefully I can stay on top of things enough to do ok. The only nice Algebra II teacher at my school (he isn't even THAT great) gives lots of pop quizzes tho, so it's sorta trade off..idk if I want to be in his class or not. At my school if you make an appointment with your guidance counselor in the summer you can basically pick your classes..I'm going in, in a week and a half but I need to like have in my head what I want before I go in.
Wow you're schedule sounds really interesting, digital photography..I wish my school had that! And CPR..let me know how that goes lol
Yeah, I'm going to .. next week now. That's awesome!! Wow New Hampshire, that would be quite a drive from my house..I NEVER go there. I don't even know if I've ever been there...I've been to Vermont so probably lol
Woah you wrote the name of a town and they didn't delete it!! I'll give it yet another try saying the town I went to in Rhode Island..it was called .
Awesome, yeah I can't wait to hear about your NY trip! Aww that's to bad your sisters team didn't win :-( If they played their best they should still be proud tho (:
Yeah ikr! My friends don't even have this much in common with me. My best friend has the most in common with me out of all my friends I would say but our personalities can be so different and we really aren't THAT similar. We just share some of the same interests..actually not even that many come to think of it haha
Yeah I wish we knew eachother! And yes I have one younger sister whose going into 8th grade and then I have my half sister who is 5 months old. But I still say I have one sister because, half sisters and my dads family is just so separate to me. I mean it's my family in a WAY but I'm not close with them like I am with my mom and sister.
Nor do I see them NEARLY as often.
Are you excited for school to start? Oddly enough, I sorta wanna go back this year. I'm just getting so bored..but I know once school starts I'll be wishing for summer back in no time so I'll appreciate what we have left!
Oh so I forgot to tell you that I couldn't take that drivers ed class because my mom kept forgetting to call and then when she did it was all filled up :-( But it actually turned out ok because I'm signed up for the class that starts September 11th, and most likely I will be taking it with my best friend who turns 16 on September 12th.
I guess that's it..1 week until I get my laptop!! This is really endless waiting for my last paycheck to come in the mail lol But most likely by next Wednesday I'll have it so that's good. I have to order it online tho..which I wish I could just get in the store but the only store that carries it (BestBuy) near me charges 200 more dollars then if you buy it from the Sony store online.
Sooo what's new with you?? (:

nothing much really. just a lazy summer. i've been reading for school and i'm trying to find a small pet puppy i would like. i think i'm probably going to go with a morkie <3
myfatsquirrel on 7/31/2012 8:26:35 PM
Ikr, having friends is SO key in so many different situations. It just makes everything so much easier plus more fun :-D
That opportunity to work at that camp sounds awesome! And the fact that you have a connection with the person that runs the camp, definitely helps your chances! Plus it would be so fun being at the same camp as ur sister (I think anyway lol) My sis is gonna intern at the camp I work at next summer too..well she's going to go for the interview..we'll see lol
That's so great, you must be really smart I'm more of a half honors half cp kinda girl ;) haha
Yeah, math is my hardest too which I think I told you about....I am sooo hopeless it math, it's really sad. I started going to this tutoring center in my town at night once a week towards the end of last year tho for math and that was really helpful. My tutor was soo nice..my moms going to sign me up to go to her once a week as soon as school starts. The math teachers at my school are pretty bad, so I need like at least weekly help in order to keep up. Yeah I know my classes..not my teachers yet or schedule tho. I'm taking CP Latin, CP Chem, Honors US History, Honors American Lit (english), CP Algebra II and Child Development 2 (sooooo excited for that!!)
That's my first semester schedule and then I have gym second semester....I really wish I had that first like I did this past year. I like getting it over with lol
Omg, we didn't go to Lake Compounce either. My stomachs been bothering me all day..my bff is sick with some stomach thing so I guess that's it.
Well..we both did NOT go to Lake Compounce on the same day!! woohoo! Lol..not as cool tho.
I hope you had fun at Canobie Lake! I've never heard of that..where is it?
I guess we will prob go to Lake Compounce at the end of the week or next week now..IDK :-(
That's great, you have lots of fun things planned for the rest of summer! Omg I've always wanted to go to Coney Island!! That's awesome..let me know what it's like there!
Yay that's awesome your sisters softball team did so well!! So she still has one more tournament this next weekend? Well, I'll be telepathically wishing her luck ;)
It's so cool how we both have one younger sister in the same grade! I can just see it if we knew eachother our familys would be such good friends we seem so alike!
maggie183 on 7/31/2012 7:27:04 PM
Sweet! Congratulations to them! I'm not sure. Sometime in September most likely. You?
Princess Keziyah on 7/31/2012 5:02:49 PM
Omg I have HAD it with comments not posting..this is getting soo annoying!
Anyway, yeah it was a super hard decision because I'm so indecisive too! But I feel like I made the right one. I went to their house friday, saturday and sunday night..so I've been there for them. They really are doing amazingly well tho. The daughter is only 12 and the son is 10..if I lost my mom at age 16 I would be so devastated I wouldn't want anyone in my house! They are the most social family tho so they know almost everyone in town..there house has been bursting every night..it's clearly not big enough for so many people.
Yeah working at camp was the best time..maybe you COULD work at one next summer! Tho I know those kind of jobs can be hard to come by.
Yeah I totally agree about drivers ed being at night. This way it feels like it's not interfering with my summer, plus I like being out at night anyway so it probably wont be such a drag.
I hate summer reading too! And I've never heard of either of those books lol You're taking AP english right? I'm just taking Honors so I don't have any assigned reading. Besides to read two books and take a prompt about them during one of the first english classes. But omg I have SO much math hw which I think is ridiculous because I'm just in CP!
BREAKING NEWS: I'm going to Lake Compounce tomorrow!! (: Are you still going? We weren't going to go because we thought we had to be over our family friends house again but then we just found out they are going to Cape Cod to stay with fam so we're gonna go! I know it doesn't really matter we're going on the same day, but it's still pretty awesome we'll be in the same place at the same time! Actually we are probably going in the evening because it's cheaper to go after 5 (my moms gotta jump on every single deal like that lol) so idk if it will be the same time.
I don't have any big plans for the rest of vaca except to hang out with friends, go to the beach some more and lake compounce..what about u??
maggie183 on 7/30/2012 3:50:28 PM
thanks! i probably will now;) lol so what have u been up to?
myfatsquirrel on 7/30/2012 12:33:56 PM
i'm still thinking about track though because track and cross country are both a little different.
myfatsquirrel on 7/30/2012 11:43:27 AM
Yeah I know what you mean. I'm a big family girl too. Oh that sucks about the losses but I'm happy about the two wins! Congrats to your sis! Good luck to her in the next game!
Princess Keziyah on 7/29/2012 10:34:52 AM
Yeah of course, I'm always here for you too!!
Sooo a weird turn of events took place last night: My mom was talking to that family and somehow it came up that I had to miss the last day of camp to go to the funeral..not in a blaming way or anything of course it just came up in the covo. And the the father (his wife died) in the family was saying really forefuly that I HAD to go to work today because it's what his wife would have wanted and that she believed that work came before everything else.
It was honestly one of the hardest decisions I have ever made..I was up soo late debating this with my two best friends. I was just so afraid that deep down they would resent me forever for not going. But in their religion after someone dies they have family and friends over for about 4 nights in a row afterwards and that is more important then the funeral...so I'm definitely going to go to all of those. But I went to camp..it seemed like what they wanted and it was something that mattered a huge amount to me..so I just went with that.
On happier notes camp-wise: today was one of the best days ever! Wow that sounds weird and bad to write considering everything that's going on..but it was great in a super sad sorta way! I got pictures of lots of the kids, and got to hug them all one last time which was just so vital to me lol Plus afterwards the interns all stayed for like 2 hours to clean up and it was so much fun. We had the most hillarious time (we really are like one big family)..it's so sad to say goodbye to the interns that are going into college and won't be coming back! ;( But yeah we did lots of group pictures, a high-five line and then basically all broke into tears lol Believe me when I say I'm counting the days until it starts again next summer!! :-( :-(
I know are lives are SOO similar it's crazy but in a really cool sorta way haha There is no doubt if we went to the same school we would be best friends..how could we not?! lol Awww I wish we went to the same school!! :-(
Drivers Ed is every night from 6-8. Sorta a drag but yes it will be great prep for my permit test. That sounds fun!!! And what book are you reading?? Wow, I haven't even started my summer reading..now that camps over I really gotta crack down ont that!
Awesome about Lake Compounce!! Yeah I'm still going but I think its going to be the week after next :-( We were going to go next Tuesday!!! Like I swear, it's penciled in on the family calendar and everything but now we have other obligations so it's gonna have to be the next week I think. But WOW was that close!
Yeah we had super bad storm/tornado warnings last night and apparently a lot of our state was without power..just not the section I live in so that was great! IT was actually a lot calmer and better then they predicted for where I live. I really hope you didn't loose power!!!!
I wish I could tell you where I was in Rhode Island too...I would try again but I'm afraid I may get banned from the site or something if they have to tell me one more time that I'm breaking the rules..:-(
maggie183 on 7/27/2012 4:31:38 PM
i totally agree. i mean i'm not ready yet. like i said already-just entering high school and everything. i don't know if i'm going to be playing any sports. i started doing conditioning for volleyball, but then i quit because the team was really tough. my mom said i should do track or something, but i did that in 7th grade (well cross country) and i didn't like it. idk we'll see
myfatsquirrel on 7/27/2012 2:26:29 PM
Sweet! Well good luck to your sister with her tournament.! Not much. Most likely just be lazy. Hopefuly my dad's aunt will come see me and my bro this weekend form Atlanta and I'm gonna call my parents and older bro.
Princess Keziyah on 7/27/2012 11:22:27 AM
Yeah it is. So how's it going?
Princess Keziyah on 7/26/2012 5:12:32 PM
Thank you SO much, you're an amazing friend!! Yeah my family is coping with it all pretty well I feel like...I guess it helped knowing for so long that this was coming. My mom and sis definitively spent the most time with her and they are holding themselves together pretty well. It's my sisters best friends mom..they just went over their house to help with things. I feel so selfish being upset about missing camp at a time like this and I wouldn't be so crushed if I had gotten to say goodbye to everyone (especially the kids..most of which I may never see again). But my two bestfriends who work there promised to tell everyone bye from me tomorrow..so I guess I have to just move on from that now. *
OMG I know like why couldn't I just name a town I visited?!? I wonder if you live really close to where I was..that would be so cool! :-D
Aww yeah, softball totally deserves to be part of the Olympics as much as any other sport! That's frustrating! *
That's awesome about the movie theater! There's a movie theater on my street too...WOW I must have been totally spacing out before to not have remembered that haha It's like WAY up my street (I live on the main street in my town) so it's a pretty big and wide street but I can still walk to it! And yeah it's the same deal..really cheap, I think like 5 dollars a movie and they get the movies that have been in theaters like 2 months ago. WOW you can walk to so much!! So can I!! I can walk to BigY, CVS, this sandwhich shop, the library, the nail spa etc. Wow we live such similar lives!!
Idk, I'm actually sorta excited for drivers ed now that it's getting closer lol It's actually for 3 weeks for me tho :-(
SO anyway, ENOUGH about me what's up with u?? :-D
maggie183 on 7/26/2012 4:42:33 PM
The family friend I told you about who had cancer just passed away :-( It's SO sad, and I have to miss my last dayofcamp tomorrow to go to the funeral which is also beyond sad to me :'( Life is soo bad right now :-( Oh and sorry our computer broke so the space bar wasn't working above
maggie183 on 7/26/2012 1:48:04 PM
Sorry I can't tell you what part of Rhode Island I was in, it gets deleted when I do :-(
maggie183 on 7/25/2012 5:50:45 PM
maggie183 on 7/25/2012 4:12:06 PM
I know! She looked so pretty I liked how it was just classic and simple. And the color looked good on her, and they sang her happy birthday!
topchef88 on 7/24/2012 10:29:08 AM
Omg my comment got sooo edited again :-( I'm so annoyed lol
maggie183 on 7/23/2012 7:17:36 PM
Pretty good. My little cousins are here. They wanted to stay the night so we'll be having a sleepover again.
Princess Keziyah on 7/23/2012 5:11:56 PM
Omg $8 for a pair of shorts from Hollister?! I think I need to go shopping with your mom haha Yeah I used to sell a lot of my stuff on eBay that I didn't need anymore but I sorta ran out of things to sell lol I wish I had some other way of making $ during the school year.
For school supplies I usually go to Staples. There was actually this HUGE sale at our Staples at the beginning of July so my mom bought my sister and I like everything we need, then. So I'm pretty set with that I think
Yeah I <3 TJ Max, because they get all the designer brands for so much less! Like I got an adorable Juicy Couture jacket there for just 45 dollars!
I've heard of Burlington but we don't have one near my town. But anyway it was a REALLY fun day yesterday! We went to this balloon festival thing (it was actually to windy for them to do the balloons..my mom and sis were going to ride in one) but that was ok because they had lots of other stuff going on too like rides, games, food, shows..so it was all good And then we like went into different shops and stores in town too, it was really fun! Yeah I know, we live so close by!! It's awesome!
Soo what are you up to this week? It's my last week of camp SADLY ;( lol Omg I got stung by a bee at camp today..forgot how much that hurts haha
I swear there has GOT to be a bees nest on the playground at this camp, because everyone is getting stung left and right..:-( They really should spray or something in my opinion!
maggie183 on 7/23/2012 5:09:09 PM
yeah she's the best mom ever <3 oh Kroger is just my local grocery store! i guess there aren't some in different states. with me just beginning my freshman year, it would definitely be hectic if i would get a job. i wouldn't work every day though. just one or two during the week and possibly a few hours on the weekend...i don't know. my head hurts just thinking about it;)
myfatsquirrel on 7/21/2012 11:06:37 PM
Yeah it will be weird, but it's important for her to grow up and expand. At least she cares still though too
topchef88 on 7/21/2012 6:39:43 PM
Sounds fun! Sweet! Not much just got in from walking to the store. I'm gonna call my parents and older bro tomorrow.
Princess Keziyah on 7/21/2012 5:32:51 PM
Yeah I know what you mean, drivers ed seems a lot like school :-( At least you only had it every Sunday tho...that seems a lot better then every night!! How many hours long was it for you?
Haha I'll definitely let you know if I meet my soulmate in Drivers Ed ;)
Yeah I looked up that movie on IMDb, and there are so many well-known actors and actresses in it!
I'm definitely going to try to watch it at some point
OMG I actually didn't hear about that!!! What caused the shooting?? I'm going to look that up now..that is CRAZY.
Yeah I'm not going on any vacations this summer either and haven't done anything huge but I agree, I feel like I have been making the most of summer in the way that I have been having fun everyday
Um I keep in touch with the other interns sorta in the sense that we say hi to eachother in the halls at school and talk sometimes when we run into eachother there. Like I've become friends with alot of seniors at my school through this so I keep in touch with them. I wish there was a way to stay in touch with the kids tho!! I seriously become SO attached to all of them, that I'm SO sad when it comes time to say goodbye! ;( It's like during the summer they are like my best friends and then I don't get to see them for a year..so that parts hard.
That's great! OMG I want to go to your Hollister!!! It sounds NOTHING like the one in my mall which rarely ever has a sale and is SUPER expensive! :-( That is soo awesome, I would go back and make the most of that sale! I need new clothes..like I haven't bought anything new in forever and my moms like refusing to pay for back to school clothes for my sister and I this year because she thinks "we are old enough to use our own $ on things like that" plus both me and my sister had ways of earning $ this summer so I guess that just supports her theory. But it's so annoying!! And like every penny I earn is going towards my laptop anyway so it's not like I'm going to have a lot to spend. But my best friends family hired me to water their plants while they're on vaca next month so I guess I'll use the money I earn from doing that to buy new clothes for school. I definitely will be bargain hunting tho! haha
OH AWESOME!! We live soo close by! I love Rhode Island, my family goes to the beach there all the time during the summer! Well not ALL THE TIME since it's a 2 hour drive but it's the only beach we go to basically. It's so pretty there and idk Rhode Island just has a more summery feel to it then CT..probably because there is more water there. The beach we always go to is called Watch Hill..have you been there? I'm not sure what one we are going to tomorrow..I think it's a different one but I can't remember the name. I'll let you know after we go lol
I hope you get to go to NY tomorrow! We will both be taking day trips out of our states tomorrow hopefully lol :-D
maggie183 on 7/21/2012 12:51:08 PM
Ikr..well I tried to post a link to the laptop I'm getting on my last message so I get why that was edited out (even tho I think links should totally be allowed as long as they are to safe websites).
Yeah haha let me know what day you're going to Lake Compounce when you know..I'm still not sure either.
Thanks!! Yeah although camp has been a lot of fun there is definitely NO denying how exhausting it is and that its definitely a lot of work and time.
Congrats on being so close to getting your license! Yeah I hope I have a similar experience with drivers ed I was going to take it with my best friend who turns 16 in September but my mom decided that she wanted me to take it during the summer so that it won't distract me from school. And I'm taking it in one of the towns near mine because their driving school is supposed to be great and the one in my town isn't as good apparently. So I won't know anyone going into it but like you said maybe that's a good thing.
Wow that would be so amazing if I met some great guy at drivers ed..lol thanks for giving me some motivation to go! haha For me it's every night of the week from 6:00-8:00 for 3 weeks...SIGH I really hope there are some nice people there.
I've heard of that movie but no I've never seen it ..the title is so clever! haha I wanna see it now!
WOW today was insanely busy for you! How did it all go? Yeah I know what you mean, I like staying busy in the summer rather then just sitting around doing whatever. Like I like my summer to have some structure to it so it doesn't feel like just a bunch of endless hours to fill. Wow I can't believe we are at the mid summer point! Actually it feels like forever since I was in school so I can sorta believe it :-D
OMG that is terrible it sounds like that storm was VERY destructive to where you live! Apparently a lot of houses in my state were without power too but not so much my town. I can't believe the hospital you work at was struck by lightening. Everyone was ok right?
Yeah the storm was SO short here too but super strong with LOUD thunder and lots of lightening. Lightening came SO close to hitting my best friends house..and sister and I saw a huge streak like land in our backyard. It was pretty intense haha
Do you have any plans for the weekend? I was going to go to Rhode Island tomorrow to go to the beach and this festival thing with my fam but now I caught a cold so I'm not sure if we're doing that :-( EVERYONE (well almost everyone) at my camp is sick with the same thing right now. Like all my friends and I have a soar throat and cold..plus a lot of the teachers and kids..so not fun. But we might go there on Sunday if not tomorrow..I'm not to sick just sorta worn out so I hope I recover quick lol
maggie183 on 7/20/2012 5:08:24 PM
My mom went to Kroger and asked them when they start hiring. The lady said maybe 15. It would be nice to get some extra $ here and there but still.... Ok so I got movie maker working but now sims isn't! Ugh
myfatsquirrel on 7/20/2012 4:42:57 PM
Ikr? 2012 did a good job when it came to movies. Haha. So how's it goin?
Princess Keziyah on 7/19/2012 8:31:54 PM
Oh right "no posting links to outside websites"...lol I'm getting a Sony VAIO laptop tho: this is the model number if you wanna look it up
maggie183 on 7/19/2012 7:31:27 PM
He did an AWESOME job. Now I have to see the new Batman movie.
