Mom In the HOUSE!

so this past THURSDAY or yesterday, however you prefer....was my MOMS BIRTHDAY (i won't disclose her hahaha)

but ya so being involved in sports and school sometimes sucks when it comes to not having a lot of time...especially when its your mommy's birthday....
see i was supposed to have a golf match ( which i later found out that the girls team got "sick" and so we just played six holes instead)
and my mom's co-worker was taking her out for it kind of all worked out...
but since i did get home a lot sooner than expected i went out and mowed the lawn...ya its that time of the year again....but our back yard isn't fully grown i didn't feel like mowing dead grass lol...and the fact that i was heading over to the marinis house to babysit so Ember could go to a primary meeting.....ya so i got home around 9 and then realized i still had a HUGE amount of homework....oh well i enjoyed some cake with my mom first...then headed to my room to do about two hours of homework....yay me!

well all my homework is done and i was super tired this morning, which doesn't put me in the best of moods...ya..but HEY its friday....there IS always a bright side to

well tonight i am taking my mom to the nail salon to get our eyebrows done..ya these beauties aren't i am headed over to my friends house for dinner....E~ward (a.k.a. elizabeth ward) came back from Washington State University for spring break and called me up so we are hanging out tonight...

tomorrow is basketball regional tournaments so i will be spending the whole day balling it up!!! hopefully we make it to the championship game which is at 3p.m. so if you are trying to get a hold of me contact my mom..because i will be BUSY!!!

NAV 101

so this week i was called down by Mrs. Huggler (counselor at WHS) and was asked to go to the Navigation 101 conference being held at the Hotel Murano...(fancy shmancy hotel) and go and present to teachers and staff all over the state who are trying to get the program in their schools. I was asked to speak on behalf of the portfolio and how using Navigation 101 has assisted me in my preparation for my senior presentation coming up i found out march 23!!!! can you believe it?!?!? i sure CANT!!!

wow so first off before i go off and rant about my portfolio presentation let me tell you how this conference went...

so FIRST off...we were supposed to dress up so i had to wake up at my regular time but today i had to actually get up and get dressed up fancy, not my usual t-shirt and jeans....( i have realized that i do have a "high school style" of my teachers said once that in high school all he ever wore was jeans and a hoodie...and i was like nah i dress up usually once or twice a week...haha not my senior year, its all about t-shirts and jeans...and a hoodie or sweatshirt!) kinda funny to look back and see that ...BUT anyways i wore slacks (ya i own those....haha) and a polo and i curled my hair and put make real i looked like a girl...who would of thought that it was possible?!?!? lol

alrighty so we got downtown to the hotel and walked in and BAM there it was...breakfast catered for us...can you say YUMMY??? cuz i SURE first off they egg and ham breakfast sandwiches..AMAZING and then they had...drum roll please....CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS!!!

these things were like melt in your mouth delicious...hehe

well i got up and had to speak in front of about 200 (give or take) people...kinda nerve wrecking ya i was shaking but got past that...and if ya know me i got really emotional during my speech and started crying and i even made some of my teachers and some of the other people there cry...SCORE! just kidding ya it was good....

Overall great experience and i enjoyed it and felt very honored to be asked to go there and present...

so my portfolio is coming up and ya i am SUPER nervous...ya besides figuring out what i want or should be wearing lol (totally turning into a GIRL) i am freaking out over what i should be saying and all....i am going for distinguished which would mean i have the chance to go for the 1000 dollar scholarship so that adds a lot of pressure....

i'll write back next week and reveal how i did!

Where does the time go?

so ya as you look at the title you might start freakin....BUT don't worry i'm not going to turn all sentimental and all that jazz...i am taking the road more traveled by seniors at this time of senior year....where did all that time go that i pictured in my head last october when i started applying for colleges and these cursed things called i swear it was just yesterday when i was telling my mom "i don't need to do that today, it's not due til March". Well here we are fifth day in march already. WOW baby! where did all my time to be lazy go :P

well little by little i am finishing up all my previously started scholarship applications, grrr i am just SO ready for those things to be OVER....if i have to write ONE more essay about my "college aspirations" i think i might stab my eyes out....ya i went there!

alrighty there is an upside to this rant...ITS FRIDAY which would mean that my portfolio is officially turned in (we find out on tuesday when we are presenting them, so come tuesday at ten o'clock..give or take a few minutes i WILL be freaking out, because i will either be presenting two weeks from that day or a i am keeping my fingers crossed that is the latter but hey knowing my luck lol)
Also seeing as it is friday...that means nate was at work so my mom and i went out and ran some errands before we came home to watch a we went and picked up my prom dress!!! it's all altered and i am super excited to show nate the extra we got cut so he can go pick out his tux....i am so stoked to see his reaction to the color :P but back to my story..i got to have a girls night and watch a movie with some chips and chocolate milk :) ya salt and vinegar chips with the cold refreshing chocolate milk just CAN'T be beat...hate to say it but it is pretty good....Cheetos with chocolate milk IS the best...but salt and vinegar proved a good runner up :D
So we watched Where the Wild Things Are, ya hmmm umm well i am definitely not a movie critic but i will say that it was an alright movie, i mean it was only an 140 word book, how good could the movie REALLY be? HUH? ya but nah it was cool....kinda dragged in the middle but overall i am glad i got to watch it... :)

tomorrow is saturday which is also a plus to today being friday...haha that means NO SCHOOL for two days....WOOT WOOT...but anyways tomorrow morning i will be waking up to go play some basketball and then hoping to come home to wash the car and vacuum it out and then off to the boy scouts fundraiser....BUT i will admit the best part of the day will be going to the fundraiser and getting to see NATE!!!! first time since sunday ( yaya laugh all ya want, go ahead roll your eyes if ya want to too) but hey going six days is a long time for us...yes we do text and talk but i like being able to see him in person too.... :)

well thats all i have to say for the time being...haha

i'll write later-ya don't fret it will come :)
