It's Here, It's Here

Summertime is here!

Time to relax!

Time to read!

Time to go to the river!

Time to enjoy!

Time to do stuff I've been putting off!

Time to do nothing at all!

At least for a few weeks. Then, for me, it all starts up again because I'm taking a few classes this summer.


And it feels good! Better news- Matt made it through this semester. Now that feels good!

Movies This Summer

There are some BIG movies coming out this summer and I want to see them.

Will be there to watch:

1. Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End- Who wouldn't want to see this movie? We have Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp. But honestly the first two movies were GREAT!

2. Ocean's 13- I really liked the first two movies in this series. I like the movies that keep you guessing and you have to figure out how they did that.

3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix- Hello!?! Harry Potter!! I have a feeling I might be at the midnight showing of this movie.


4. Nancy Drew- I saw on a list that there was a Nancy Drew movie coming out. I tried to click on it to see what it was about, but another movie popped up. I have no idea if it is based on the books or not.

5. Shrek 3- I saw the first Shrek and did not like it at all. I did not watch the second movie, but the commercials I have seen for this one look ok. We'll see...

6. Spider Man 3- I saw the second Spider Man movie, but have not watched the first one the whole way through. It looks ok, but we'll see...

There are also a couple of books I want to read. Well let me rephrase that... I want to read a couple of books. I might just go to the library and just start checking them out. Right now my dream is to get a good book, hop in the boat, and read while floating down Current River. Ahhhhh....sounds good! We also need to add in some Oreo cookies and Mountain Dew into that dream.

I know I post alot about my school and classes. Even though this post is about school, it is something a little different. In just two and a half weeks I will be a senior in college. I will be entering my last year of classes and this time next May I will be gearing up to accept my diploma from SEMO. Wow... All of this hard work, headaches, and gripping. I am finally about to make it. So excited. Very excited.

I am very glad it is Friday. This week has been tough, really really tough. I have been trying to catch up on assignments and stay caught up. You know, that is a very hard task. For everyone out there who is in school- Don't Get Behind on Homework! Don't be a Procrastinator! If you do it when it is assigned, you will be much better off in the long run. I promise. I am speaking from very very much experience.

I hope some of you enjoyed my 90's thing. I have a couple more about being from Missouri and from a small town. They are really really funny because it is all so true.

Have a good weekend! I will be working on homework and helping with the softball tournament tomorrow! Hopefully it won't rain too much.

I'm A 90s Child Yo

This is for all you cool cats who lived through the 90s and remember most of this stuff! Hopefully it will make you giggle.
You're a 90's kid if:
You can sing the rap to "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air"
You remember when Kurt Cobain, Tu Pac, River Phoenix, and Selena died.
You remember when it was actually worth getting up earlyon a Saturday to watch cartoons.
You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.
You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books.You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence...Not...
Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? was both a game and a TV game show.
Captain Planet.
You remember when super nintendo's became popular.
I've fallen and I can't get up"
You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates
Two words... Trapper Keeper.
You wore socks over leggings scrunched down"
You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell"
You played and/or collected "Pogs"
You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere
You watched the original Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles
Yikes pencils and erasers were the stuff!
All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.(pencils.notebooks.binders.etc.)
You remember when the new Beanie Babies were always sold out.
You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.
You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"
You know the Macarena by heart.

When we were younger:
Before the MySpace frenzy...
Before the Internet & text messaging...
Before Sidekicks & iPods...
Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX......
Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night.
When light up sneakers were cool.
When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.
When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.
When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.
When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.
When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.
When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back.
Tag.Get Over Here!!!! means something to you.
Hide-n-Go Seek at dusk.Red Light, Green Light.Heads Up 7 Up.Playing Kickball & Dodgeball until your porch light came on.Hopskotch.Slip-n-Slides.Tree Houses.Hula Hoops.
The annoying Giga Pets & Furbies.
Running through the sprinklers.
That "Little Mermaid"
Crying when Mufasa died in the Lion King.
Happy Meals where you chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car.
Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car.

Or what about:
Hey Arnold.
The Secret World of Alex Mac.
Ren & Stimpy.Double Dare.
Rocco's Modern Life.
Wild & Crazy Kids.
Clarissa Explains it All.
Salute Your Shorts(CAMP ANAWANA)
Are You Afraid of the Dark?
The original cast members of All That.Kenan & Kel.
Magic School Bus.
Legends of the Hidden Temple.
Hangin with Mr. Cooper.
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.
Class field trips.
When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.
When you begged to go to McDonalds for dinner everyday.
When Toys R Us overuled the mall.

Go back to the time when:
Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'.
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming 'do over!
''Race issue' ment arguing about who ran the fastest.
Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in 'Monopoly.
'It wasn't odd to have two or three 'best' friends.
Being old referred to anyone over 20.
A chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery.
Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.
It was a big deal to finally be tall enought to ride the 'big people' rides at the fair.
When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.
When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.
Another Baby Sitter Club and Little Sister (Karen) book came out and you put your name on hold for it at the library.
When Aladdin was new, before the trilogy was complete.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappearWho would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!!

I hope you had time to read through these because if you are anything like me, you remember 99% of them!

It's been so long, I forgot to add....

I Don't Know what to Title This

It has been awhile since my last blog, but honestly I can't think of anything that has happened in my life. Well there has been school, but school is blah blah and it already stressses me out enough. Oh I have thought of something. Saturday night we had our meeting to plan the Springtime in Paris Gala. Going into the meeting I still was not for sure what my role would be, but I knew I wanted to be involved because Ruth asked us to. I am now sure what I am doing and that part is a secret. This gala is for all the women at our church, but mostly for the older women who don't come to the JOY meetings. I think they used to do this for them but haven't in awhile, so this gala will allow them to come out and get a really really nice lunch and some funny entertainment. I am really looking forward to it because it is something different for us to do and by that time I will need some entertainment besides an Educational Psychology book.

I Can Show You with One Hand

What can I show you with one hand? How many weeks we have left of school! I have officially made a list of what I need to do before the end. This list is allowed to be modified, because I had to add more during class tonight. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to mark off items on my list. Since we have SO MUCH stuff due before the end of the semester, this list allows myself to try and stay organized. I also have to add Matt into this organizational list. He is really lost and we have to try and keep him caught up. Well, we need to catch him up first, then keep him caught up.

I enjoyed my Easter break very much. Friday night consisted of dying Easter eggs, spending time with Alicia, Garrett, and new friends met at the Thornton house, and spilling Mountain Dew on my pants. Saturday consisted of cleaning room and going back to Thornton house to watch the Passion of Christ. Sunday was Easter! I went to church, went to eat lunch at Grandma/Grandpa Thornton house, hunted Easter eggs, and then went home to take a nap. I tried to do homework, but I couldn't make myself. I have been getting homework done this evening while sitting in class. hehehehehe! :) Maybe that's why I'm so lost and I'm not for sure what's due next and when.

3-2-1 Blast Off!!
