A New Year!!!! [05 Jan 2004|05:09pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]


Ciao. Long time no write.

Well, vacation was ok. I got kinda sick with my tonsils & everything and I might have to have them taken out.

On another note, Flora Pia, my cousin from Italy came!! We had a blast! We went to the beach house in Miami, went to NYC for New Years! then went to Orlando for the weekend. We went to Old Town & this thing called Midieval Times which was a dinner and a show. Then we went to Epcot. It was cool. Fun times with friends & family.

Well now I have to go clean my room.

<3,
Amanda

ps. I got a 32 on my ACT's!!!!

Last night I found out that one of my old friends died. He was that friend that could always remind you of the fun times you had in fourth grade and cheer you up. He was our class clown. He would do anything for a laugh, and I mean ANYTHING! I knew that I could count on him for anything. He would come over just as a shoulder to cry on even if it was 3 in the morning. He was always there.... He was pulling onto the highway and his truck was ran over by an 18 wheeler that never stopped. It was on a hill so he had no view of the truck either.

Now I feel like I lost the one thing I thought would remain constant. I feel like reality is approaching so fast & I have no time to get ready. There is no manual to intruct how to live life and I wish there were.

On another note:

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN CREEK'S HISTORY, THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY BRAIN BRAWL TEAM HAS ADVANCED TO THE SECOND ROUND!!!! IT'S AWSOME BEING A PART OF A TEAM THAT HAS ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING!

I took this from Amanda Weiner. Thanks.

See, im not Orange! lol.


spearmint
You are Spearmint.
You are quick-witted and sharp. You pay close
attention to details and you can tell what your
friends are feeling. You are always the first
to understand a joke and you are valued for
your insight and advice. However, you
sometimes isolate yourself from other people,
afraid to share your own feelings.

Seeing family is fun.

[ mood | grumpy ]


I can't stand people who think they will become the king of the world after high school. I can't stand people who want to accomplish so much, but will end up bagging groceries for the rest of their lives at scummy grocery stores. I hate people who turn 18 and end up acting like kids more than they did before. I am in such a bad mood. I HATE my wisdom teeth. All 4 decided to come in at the same time. Damn them! I have to go have surgery over Christmas break to have them taken out. That is, if they don't kill me before than.

Well, I have homework in all of my AP classes. Study for a quiz in Chem. Start my applied Psych project. Hamlet test Monday for Eng. I hate school. I have to take my ACT's again in December I just need to get one more point to get 100% paid. Easy enough, I hope.

I still need to find out what a flower party is from Beth, but other than that...I am going to go try to sleep.

Nite. <3.

I have a wisdom tooth coming in. I'm not going to school tomorrow cuz I have to go to the dreaded Dentist to see if I have to have them taken out since I don't have much room for them. They hurt BADLY!

Thanks to the certain person who called me and made me feel better! *Muah*

I was on my way to type a Post-Lab for Mulvi but I got sidetracked....AP Chem just doesn't hold my attention very long...

I guess when it comes down to it...Being grown up isnt half as fun as growing up...These are the best days of our lives...The only thing that matters is just following your heart and eventually you'll get it right....:>

o and:

I wish you'd just punch the clock in its face...

so when we rule the world
we'll put it in a poll

to make an other day
one more like Saturday
so we can stay late..
all those in favor for running the work week short
raise your hand and say "yeah"
YEAH

Very inspiring:

ARE YOU A REASON,

A SEASON, OR A LIFETIME?



Pay attention to what you read. After you read this, you will know the reason it was sent to you! People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.


When someone is in your life for a REASON. . .

It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.



Then people come into your life for a SEASON...

Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons...

things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.



This is to show people you love them and to see how many people love you!!!!! Don't feel embarrassed, because only you will get the results.

***************************************

Work like you don't need the money.

Love like you've never been hurt.

And dance like no one is watching.

This is inspirational.

An exerpt from Anna Quindlen's "A Short Guide to a Happy Life":

Don't ever confuse the two, your life and your work. That's what I have to say. The second is only a part of the first. Don't ever forget what a friend once wrote to Senator Paul Tsongas when the senator had decided not to run for reelection because he'd been diagnosed with cancer: "No man ever said on his deathbed I wish I had spent more time at the office."

Don't ever forget the words on a postcard that my father sent me last year: "If you win the rat race, you're still a rat."

Or what John Lennon wrote before he was gunned down in the driveway of the Dakota: "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

That's the only advice I can give. After all, when you look at the faces of aclass of graduating seniors, you realize that each student has only one thing that no one else has. When you leave college, there are thousands of people out there with the same degree you have; when you get a job, there will be thousands of people doing what you want to do for a living.

But you are the only person alive who has sole custody of your life. Your particular life. Your entire life. Not just your life at a desk, or your life on the bus, or in the car, or at the computer. Not just the life of your mind, but the life of your heart. Not just your bank account, but your soul.



Told ya so.
Mulvi read this to us for "Workshop Wednesday!" lol

2 Thoughts| Think About It...

[19 Sep 2003|04:44pm]
[ mood | sick ]



Everyday that passes by,
There isn't a day I wonder why.
What we are or was way back then,
Makes me wonder what we might have been.

How could we go from friends to something other.
Then acting like we don't know one another.
Did I ever do something wrong?
Or was it you all along?

Wondering and waiting.
Kept my heart aching.
Soon I learned that it wasn't meant to be.
And then suddenly you came back to me.

I was just standing there that day.
Then you came wondering my way.
I wasn't sure why.
But you came by to say hi.

So now I'm not sure how you feel.
But I know how I feel must be real.
Being confused isn't new.
But I know that I want you.

Everyday that goes by,
I often wonder why.
Why do you act the way you do?
If you like me too.

I don't know what you want yet.
But I feel as if I'm your puppet.
If you only knew what I'd do.
I'd do anything to be with you.

I know there must be more than a friendship here.
So please tell me what I want to hear.
Tell me how you feel.
I know it's real.

****************************************

People who are sick write good poetry!

If you are reading this and I want you to know this is how i feel.

Freedom isn't Free!

I watched the flag pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil
How many mothers' tears?
How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No, freedom isn't free.
I heard the sound of Taps one night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant "Amen,"
When a flag had draped a coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn't free.

Does anybody know another way to spell awsome? I do! ORLANDO! (specifically UCF!) Me, Jason, Mark, & Melissa went to go bring Mark back to UCF. (Poor mark his brother took his car to NC for the week! lol) Anyway. We toured the campus then went to a party after the game (UCF won by 4) it was awsome! I want to go to UCF next year! lol.

[11 Sep 2003|10:59pm]

I have a HUGE second degree burn on my arm, I had to go to a BC NHS meeting till 5:30. Jason wasn't able to chill so we could keep each others minds off the whole lost family thing. It is September 11th. I don't feel good. I have to go take my Senior Pictures tomorrow. My arm hurts.....I am rambling...I wish the calendar would just jump over September 11th so I wouldnt have to remember.

the unknown [08 Sep 2003|06:36pm]


Some people are into Harry Potter.
Some people are into the college scene.
Some people are into writing.
Some people are into singing.

Some people are into the unknown.
Right now thats where I fit in.
If some one knows where I fit in please let me know!
thanks.

Ok.
New plan.
No chorus.
No Yearbook! <~ yeah!
Student Council instead.
I have been recruited!
Its kool.

My first day was not to bad, but we do not have lockers and that sucks. I already had AP Chem homework, it was 30 pages, easy review stuff. No big deal! Any way, Miller and Schoen were pretty cool. I shall like my school year this time around. All because the beloved YBC stands no more in my heart.

NITE PEPOLE!

Amanda


ps.
Holly if you want info call me. It is quite funny! lol

I can not wait to go to college. Everybody I know is going. My two cousin's are in their second year; one at UCLA & the other at St. Johns. Raquel is going to Harvard & Joe is going to Yale. I just want to go to Barry, or UM. Is that so unreasonable?

I guess I will just finish Jane Eyre, and high school, and see where things go from there.

Ps.
Holly commented on my journal, which was weird. I thought she did not care for what I had to say. O well.

Shout out to Beth! lol
