I'm eating cheese cake right now to help get myself into "homework mode". I doubt that will ever kick in, though. Apparently, if you have some snack to chew(healthy, duh...) it helps you focus easily. You know.... you need to eat breakfast to stay concentrated? Yeah, that's where that came from.
I read that popcorn is good to eat while working. Popcorn... yum. But I'm not hungry. Now now anyways(I just had cheesecake, remember?).
I am craving cheesecake. My dream right now . . . is to have this humongous slice of fluffy cheesecake swirled with brilliant red strawberry flavoring, topped with flawless kisses of extra dark chocolate. Mmmmmm......

Braces probably by the end of September!!!! Expanders... rubber bands.... and I forget what else. I have "small teeth" for a "big mouth". Kind, huh?
Check out my views up above! Not bad for someone who only got that in not too long ago. I should have put the date in.
Blogging has been easily accessible due to lack of challenging assignments. This might not happen to often. But then, it was the first day.
Changing the subject:
My neighbor is some young guy(hmm.. early 20's maybe?) who plays guitar and sings. He is awesome! I love the sound of guitar with pure voice, and I wish he would show the world his talent! He was singing Ticket to Ride(Beatles. Also, I hope I got the title right. Some how it just looks wrong to me). I wish I could tell him how marvelous he is, but I'm afraid he might me offended that I was listening to him. I guess some people make music for just themselves.
I love music. Who doesn't, right?
I'M GOING TO A JASON MRAZ CONCERT WITH A SUPER-TASTIC FRIEND IN NOVEMBER!!!! I am mega excited!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
Got to go... organizing time.

Tomorrow is the big-o day. The start of school. I might not be posting as much, what with assignments and everything. I'll try to take a few minutes everyday to update you, though. Definitely when braces come. :D
Wish me luck and everything.... :D

The Olympics are over with. Complete. Done. Fin.
I really enjoyed watching the spectacular events! What people can do with their bodies is incredible!
I need a new hobby!
Oh, yeah . . . school.
I watched part of the closing last night, and I must say, it was totally psychedelic!!!! I sight no one should have missed! It was truly live art.
I was quite descriptive last night! :D
It's going out on DVD!!! Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But... now it is over with. Complete. Done. Fin. :(
Let the record show: My nation came back loud and proud with the most medals! I am so proud. ;)
Congratulations to everyone else who has participated in these amazing 2008 Beijing Olympics! It was worth a million!
On another note, thank you to everyone who has given suggestions about my third colomn predicament. I really appreciate all the help!

I am getting braces. Boo hoo. :(
I got a haircut today! Woo hoo. :)
I had one inch trimmed off just to keep all the split ends off and everything even. I also added side bangs. Yippie!
At church I felt oddly at peace today. More than usual. I was just happy to be there(rare) and happy to be with other followers(even rarer). This is a good thing, right? To enjoy church?
I am jumping from subject to subject! ya da ya da da la la la. :D
About a week ago, after seeing Mamma Mia(sheer genius), we went to the park and gave the
squirrels some snackies. Would you like to see?!?!
I'm going to show you anyways!!!!
Aren't they just so adorable?
Squirrels enjoy peanuts! :D

You know how my blog has a sidebar on the right hand side? over here!! --------->
Do you know how I can get myself another one on the left side of my blog???

I painted my nails and they came out perfect! :D
I painted the base red. Then black and white flowers with Caribbean blue/green specks. It looks amazing. I'd take a picture, but I don't have any charged camera on hand. I'm going to try and keep this look for as long as possible.
Today I went to a pool party! Yay! Woo! Hoo! It is annual tradition with all of my friends. :)
I don't know what to say.
But... school begins for me next week :(
I probably won't be able to post as often. With homework and everything.....
I thought I should let you know. Just so you didn't think I deserted you guys.
One last thing for today:
If I could change one thing about myself, I would change my teeth. My yucky teeth into pearly whites.
What about you?
Have a fabulous time on this earth as our wonderful Friday afternoon continues....
OH YES! I AM GOING TO THE ORTHODONTIST IN ONE HOUR!!!!!! :(
I'll post more later.

WOWZERS!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D
Did you see what major catastrophic event just took place my blog?!?!?!
I used both striking and hyperlinking in the SAME sentence!!!!!!
Woah. Seriously. I know so much now I could teach a class.
And who do I have to thank for this lovely knowledge of
None other than......
Wow..... I am awesome.
I feel the power!
One more challenge for super smarties and geniuses!
striking thing and hyperlinking thing work for comments and other sites, too? Or is it just blogger? And, is there any other cool mabobs you know that you wouldn't mind sharing with me?
Everyone here ROCKS!
Do you want to know how I learned to HYPERLINK?
Check this out.....
It was thoroughly explained to me by . . . .
Holy crackers, did you see what just happened there?
In case you really aren't sure..... scroll over his name with the cursor.
There you go :D
I don't even know if that is a word . . . . . Do you?
Let us hear a round of applause for. . . . . .
I can rest in peace..... As in sleep... not the other thing.... :D
It is true.... that you learn a little everyday.
What have you learned?
P.S. I have another challenge for you super-smarties:
How do you strike through words?
P.P.S. I stretched already, but I think I'll stretch more.
I have something else to share with you: I am Comic Sans. I took a quiz a found off of Debs' Blog : http://debcarrs-daydreams.blogspot.com/
Grr.. anyone else know how to do that hyperlink deal where you just click on a word and it takes you to the link? I guess I'm no pro at blogging, yet. :(
Check it out!
You Are Comic Sans
You are a nothing but a big goofball. You're quite playful and fun!
You're widely known for your zany personality and your vivacious attitude.
To say that you stand out in a crowd would be a definite understatement.
Remember that you are overwhelming at times and that people appreciate you best in small doses.
Take the quiz and let me know what font you are!
Have a miraculous day!

It all started when I drifted off to Dream Land....
It started with one dream, and then I remember thinking, "Hmm.. I think I'll start another dream while this one loads." Now, when I dream, ANYTHING is possible.... Then I began thinking of another thought until it developed into a dream. I repeated this four or fives times until I had a few dreams "loaded". I was able to think of one of them, and return right to that dream without anything having happened without me.
This probably is making any sense for you. But if it is.. DOUBLE HAPPY POINTS! :D
Let met try to break this down:
Pretend my dreams were like books. I would be reading four books at one time, reading a chapter here and a chapter there out of whichever book I wanted to read. And no matter which book I read, nothing happened while I was gone.
I had the POWER in my dreams!!!!!
Maybe I am just not the best at explaining..... :(
Aloha Aloha on a Thursday evening.

She moved not too long after that to a home only an hour away from us, but we hardly ever saw her. We came to visit her about two weeks ago(2 wks tomorrow), and they prepared a nice dinner with us.
The time with the pottery had been at least two or three years by now.
But when she took out the special plate she made and started eating off of it, she caught my obvious stare. She then explained that she had been eating off of our plate every single day since she made it!
And I believed her, too. She is not one to lie, and she said it straight to my face. Eye to eye. It's either she is telling the truth, or her lying skills have improved. I like to think it is the first one. If you have a different opinion, please keep it to yourself(mahalo :D). I like to think what I think.
I was impressed, I'll tell you that.
And in her room, there is a picture of us together. In my room? Not a trace of her...
Why am I telling you this today?
Because I found my piece of pottery I made, collecting dust, in the back of a cabinet, not touched since that day at the shop.
And, well, I felt bad. Guilty.
I do not like this feeling. So, I thought I would make up for it by dedicating this post to her.
Just so I don't end this post all touchy-feely,
I would like to let everyone know that I have added a horoscope widget to the very bottom of this page. So.. scroll down.... click on your sign....and see your daily horoscope!
Have a howdy, howdy, weekend!!

or slightly move the ends of your lips up.
or just sit there at the computer being all bamboozled on why in the world I would think that you would think that this is entertainment.
But I like it.
How appropriate, right?
Aww! Mommy's helpers!
Tee hee hee.
Now... feel free to say, "awww!!" as you take a look at these:
When was the last time you saw a licking lizard?!?
okay, okay. So you have probably seen this bunches of times and I have probably posted it several times, but I cannot get over it!!!
Howdy howdy on a Thursday afternoon.

Just thought I'd let you know.
Anyways, thanks everybody for playing my little game! I love love loved the results! I was so excited to see how motivated people were! And I was mentioned in two blogs!!!
MWAH HA HA HA!!!! OMG MOMENTS!!! :P
My life has been not very packed. I see friends, go places, and do stuff. But, in general, I never go "sky-diving". So . . . I make my own fun!!!!
Party in my head!
Dance to no music!
Spread the love!
Things that really get me pumped:
-boogie-ing down the hallway
-putting a long skirt on and spinning so hard that it flows and I feel like a ballerina
-making pictures out of the grooves in the ceiling.
-turning the volume off of t.v. and trying to come up with my own lines every time someone speaks.
-pretend I'm a model and walk down the hallway all cool-like.
-galloping and making horsey noises.
I hope I grow old, but never grow up. BIG difference.
Ha. I love doing wacky things. But I'm not "insane", per say. I am aware of people around me...
What do you like to do?
oh, yeah. happy hump day. WOOT!
Howdy howdy on a Wednesday morning!

WHICH DO YOU PREFER?
water or milk?
jeans or shorts?
cold weather or hot weather?
short hair or long?
books or television?
You don't have to answer all of these questions. You can pick and choose what you feel comfortable. But please answer at least one.
I thought I would try a more "interactive" technique on my blog.
Howdy howdy on a Tuesday morning!

I just wanted to thank everyone who bothered to say Hi, even if they weren't familiar with cameras(if lost, check previous post). Thanks to anyone who gave a little of input. But I think I have decided on the Nikon. Not for sure, though. My mom has a nice Canon, so if I am ever in a Canon mood, I'll just ask to borrow hers. Nikon seems like the right level for me. I'll let you know what happens.
Okay. We have been having ant issues. Really bad ant issues. I find them in my bathroom, shower, sink,kitchen, KEYBOARD(!), everywhere! We put out these very affective ant traps, which kept them away for a while. But new colonies just keep on a comin' in! It first began once summer started. Never had a problem before that. Is it just the season for ants and bugs?
Anyone have anything that might help?
Once again, if not, just say howdy. ;)
P.S. i HATE ants,
P.P.S. just so you know.

But then maybe, it was just me.
So read it and weep..
"The Saddest Love Note"
One night a guy & a girl were driving home from the movies.
The boy sensed there was something wrong because of the painful silence they shared between them that night.
The girl then asked the boy to pull over because she wanted to talk.
She told him that her feelings had changed & that it was time to move on.
A silent tear slid down his cheek as he slowly reached into his pocket & passed her a folded note.
At that moment, a drunk driver was speeding down that very same street.
He swerved right into the drivers seat, killing the boy.
Miraculously, the girl survived.
Remembering the note, she pulled it out & read it.
'Without your love, I would die.'
Now admit it... you must have gotten at least a little twang of emotion?!?!
If not... shame...
But you are still awesome. :)
