Journal of 7-year-old Me

Recently I found a notebook of mine from 2001. I remember in elementary school we would be given time to write in our journals about anything. I found quite a few hilarious journal entries, but for now I'll start with one:

Translated, it says: "And my dad cot a fish about the size of my desk and half of a difrend desk. DESK!"

So I guess that's the ever-so-exciting life of a 7-year-old. And don't worry, I can assure you that my grammar, spelling, and hand writing has exponentially gotten better since then! (And I doubt my dad caught a fish that large...just saying.)

Life's Simple Pleasures #2

Relaxing outdoors on a beautiful day. It's 85 and sunny today and I have realized that some of my most relaxing moments are spent reading outside in a swinging chair under some shade, hearing the sound of the waterfalls in my backyard, seeing my dog sleeping in her dirt hole she keeps digging, and drinking some iced tea. What could be better?

7/24/11 - The Day I Lost My Friends

Yesterday was the day I finished watching Friends. I started this little quest of mine to watch all the episodes of Friends about two summers ago. I ordered the seasons on Netflix and would watch practically a disk a day in the summer and a disk a week during the school seasons. But yesterday it all ended when I finished the last episode of season 10. Friends is one of my absolute favorite shows! I was so sad that my journey was over, but every single episode made my day!

Braces for a doll?

I don't know why, but sometimes I will find an American Girl Doll magazine in our mailbox...I'm not going to go into details, but let's just say the wind magically blew the pages open and my eyes were coincidentally looking down at it...

Moving on, I saw a picture of an American Girl Doll with braces...why!? Why would someone want a doll with braces? I don't just made me giggle a little bit, and it made my day for sure!

English Problems

Okay, I know this video looks weird. And it kind of is...but it's very funny! I have no clue where it's from, but I found it pretty amusing. Enjoy!

When something pays off...

I received my AP World History score today...and I got a 4! Finally, some hard work that actually pays off. And if you haven't taken AP World History, let me tell you: I took over 300 pages of notes, both written and typed, built an ancient egyptian boat complete with clay people and the like, built a miniature statue replica of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, spent a minimum of 2 hours a night working on homework and studying, and much more work that would probably bore you if I went on. So let's just say, I am currently feeling like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I have nothing more to worry about this summer. So there you have it. A 4! YES!
