You know what I love about summer?
I can stay up late reading a book that I had every intention of finishing tonight, but decide to go to sleep just because I am tired. Not because I actually have to wake up for anything tomorrow.
That and the multiple possibilities of a wide-open day.

Dear Mom and Dad,

Okay so here's the deal. Well, it's not so much of a deal as it as request. It's already 2:00 in the morning and I never remember to discuss this with you during the day so here it goes: I would like to go to West Virginia to see Katelynn sometime in June. I know we already have the trip to Idaho which will be expensive and I'm planning on going to California in August, but forget the money stuff for one second. I haven't seen Katelynn in over 2 years. We would never find a way to see each other during the school year because we've never had breaks at the same time. She wants Andrea to come too and the three of us haven't been together since that summer they came to visit us here. I really want to see them and all I can say is "please". Support from others would be greatly appreciated right now (Ann that means you--please take my side).

Cordially,
Mary Kate

American Idol finale on tonight! I desperately want Jordin to win because I have loved her throughout the competition. She sang one of my favorite Martina McBride songs and she always looks beautiful. And she's only 17 years-old! Mom is bitter about Melinda being voted off last week, so I think she doesn't want anyone to win.

Let's Pack Up And Move To California!


ok... so let's not "move" there, but my friends and I are planning a trip! We've planned it in almost one night. It's going to be me, Sava, Katie Stansell, and Eryn. The middle of August seems to be the best time to do it... right before school starts. We're driving to San Diego, LA (Malibu), San Francisco, and the Grand Canyon. We know people along the way to stay with and the only place we're alone is San Francisco. If you have any suggestions of what to do in any of those places let me know! We're very excited about it...

Garden gnomes are funny. Why do people find them to be great lawn decorations? I think they're creepy. Although the people who use them tend to be greatly entertaining. Maybe we should get one. or two.

Corinne Bailey Rae- Put Your Records On

Happy Summer Everyone!


Put Your Records On
by Corinne Bailey Rae

Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don't need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon so sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we've got it wrong, but it's alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don't you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair-do.

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it's alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Twas more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Oh, you're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Move Out Day.... sad

Tuesday, May 08, 2007

I'm in the midst of finals. They're not too bad. I don't really have any hard classes (academically hard). I hate communications but that is for other reasons! I'm going to be sad to see everyone leave. They're all excited about going home while I'm not going anywhere. I see my family all the time and I'm home often. It's going to be weird.

I just wanted to add some pictures of some of my friends here... enjoy!

I'm really staring to feel like school's almost over. Crista's already moving stuff out, so our room is slowly emptying. I've finished all but three major things for my classes. I have one presentation to give (not a speech), a quiz, and a test. Next week I only have three finals and then I move back home. What am I going to do for the rest of the summer?
