That's party of why I'm happy, but not the biggest reason. I don't want to post about that yet because it's not quite for sure. Stay tuned.

I must be all grown up now. Last time I got a shot I got a Snoopy bandaid. This time all my bandaids were brown. How sad.

"Don't wish, don't start... wishing only ruins the heart"
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in"

2. Ever since I got rear ended several weeks ago I get a bitter taste in my mouth any time something startles me. Is that weird?
3. A large group of my friends left me today to go to Europe. I'm working on forgiving them for leaving me to work my ENTIRE spring break. One of my managers had surgery today, so I'm working extra to fill in for her next week. Joy. If you are my friend and you ARE still in the country, talk to me.
4. I went to Lisa's dance and choir recital today. The choir was pretty good. The dance part was extremely long. There were three groups who basically just had a half hour class (each) in front of the audience. The teacher is an older woman who has very skinny legs and wore a green, turtle-neck leotard that zipped up the back, and black leggings. I had never thought about it before, but I am now of the opinion that love handles and leotards do not mix. This teacher has been teaching dance for a long time. From the sound quality of the music, I would guess that she's been using the same cassette tape for as long as she's been teaching. (Fortunately, she seemed to be a very good teacher. Even the 3-year-olds knew what they were doing, even if their dancing wasn't as graceful as it will be in a few years.)
5. The church where this recital was had an espresso cafe called "Wholly Grounds." I found this very amusing, although the rest of my family didn't appreciate it quite as much.
6. I graduate in 43 days.
7. I like that my new purse is big enough to carry a notebook in. Now, providing circumstances allow, I can write down my observations as they occur rather than storing them in my brain and more often than not forgetting about them before I get to my journal.
8. I do not get to sleep late a single day of my "spring break."
9. "Remembering, everything, about my world and when you came. Wondering, the change you’d bring, means nothing else would be the same. Did you know, what you were doing, did you know. Did you know how you would move me well, I don’t really think so." (stuck in my head)
10. I'm going to see a for real Broadway show at the Aranoff! It's not Wicked, but I'll settle for Les Miserables. I really have tickets this time. No more "someday, I hope..." : )
11. And that's all there is. There isn't any more.

PLZ GO TO MY PARTY
THE BiGGEST PARTY EVER iS WHEN YOU GET THROUGH THE GATES OF HEAVEN BECAUSE YOU'LL BE LiViNG ETERNALLY WiTH GOD!!
98% OF TEENS WON'T STAND UP FOR GOD...
REPOST THIS iF YOU'RE ONE OF THE 2% WHO WILL
Jesus also said if you deny me in front of your friends i will deny you in front of my Father
repost this as "Go to my party"
Somehow I don't think that when Jesus said that he was talking about filling email inboxes and message boards with spam. My goodness, people.
Or this one:
DO NOT OPEN IN FRONT OF PARENTS...5 PPL ACTUALLY GOT KILLED BY NOT SENDING THIS PIECE OF MAIL.THE CREATOR OF THIS MAIL HAS A PROGRAM THAT WILL TRACK DOWN UR ADDRESS. WHAT DO U HAVE TO LOSE? UR LIFE. PLZ REPOST! THANK YOU AND HAVE A MEANINGFUL REST OF YOUR DAY
Sorry, but because u opened this you will die in 3 days. sorry. the only way you can reverse this is by reposting it within 5 minutes. good luck
By opening this chainmail u have been given bad luck for 2 months. If u repost this message then the bad luck will turn good.
Here are the rules.
Give the bulletin a name that has nothing to do with a chain letter because this letter is a trap. The more people that you trick, the better luck you get
It's a bit too late to tell people not to open it in front of parents when they must have already opened it to read the order! Also, if opening this without reposting in 5 minutes means death, why bother with the 2 months of bad luck?

The Game: The first player of this game starts with the "6 weird things/habits about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a blog of their 6 weird habits/things, as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read yours.
1. Sometimes, when I can't fall asleep, I imagine that I'm sleeping in a different places, such as a log cabin or an igloo.
2. I keep a collection of articles from newspapers and magazines and websites and such in a binder in my room.
3. I fell off the stage of the Finneytown PAC a few months ago and now I have a genuine fear of the edge of the state.
4. The way to my heart is through jelly beans. (Ok, it would take more than that, but jelly beans help a lot.)
5. I'm playing in a string quartet for a harp concerto at the May orchestra festival. My highest note is two F's above the staff, which is absolutely insane.
6. I should be doing my literature homework right now.
I tag (can I only pick 6?)... Mae, Caitlin, Brandae, Kelly, Christina, and Jane.
Looking for Patterns in Static
The rest of the morning was so surreal. We got out of orchestra early and I walked with Becky to the office to sign in (she has senior leading first bell), like I do nearly every morning. Walking through the halls was incredibly unsettling. It was dead silent except for the sounds of crying. Everyone was scattered in little clusters trying to comfort each other or just sort of staring into space. The grief in the air was almost palpable and completely overpowering. No one was moving quickly, so I couldn't either, but I bit my lip until it throbbed (again, trying not to grin) and would have run out of the building if I were able.
I had always thought it kind of odd when someone, especially someone young, would die and suddenly everyone would act like their best friend had died. I think I understand that a bit more now. It's incredibly affecting when a person one has connection to dies, especially if the person is young. It's affected me and I'd never even heard the name Chevis before 7:30 this morning.
It's weird how things don't stop after things like this happen. It feels like there ought to be a world-wide hiatus or something. But there's not. I just got called to come into work early. The cycle goes on.

10 Things That Should Be Outlawed:
2. Reading over people's shoulders
3. Overuse of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!
4. And question marks?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!??????
5. And, commas, which, I too, am sometimes guilty of
6. Those tank tops with one strap
7. Purse fashion. Purses should be made to last forever so that they never fall apart and I never have to buy a new one. As it is, purses are very cheaply made (at least the ones in my price range) because fashions change so often that most people change purses... a lot more often than I do.
8. Music with screaming in it ("screamo" or anything else)
9. not replying to emails that expect a reply (especially if you are a Cafe leader)
10. Letting your dog poop in other people's yards. Even if you clean it up.

The clock says 10:51, but I know that unfortunately soon it will jump an hour ahead and an hour of my sleep will be gone. Phooey.
