I know I haven't written in my journal for a very long time, so here's what I haven't been able to write since now:
I turned 17 on Jan. 16th and I didn't have much of a celebration til that evening, when my dad and stepmom (Maria) stopped by. We had some homemade cake (Grandma Gloria made a delicious pineapple pudding cake- very healthy, but still good). Earlier Great Grandma Nina had given my $20, and then (w/my dad present) Grandma Gloria gave me a quarter collection. It was that lovely "First State Quarter's Of the Unites States Collectior's Map". It had all the quarters in the rows of 1999 to 2004, but 2005 was missing Kansas and West Virginia, and (of course) 2006 was totally empty. But now I've got the 2005 spaces filled and one of the 2006, too. It's Nevada. I like it because of it's wild horses on the coin. I also like Kentucky's, b'coz there's a horse on it, too. =) lol.
I didn't get a gift from Dad or Maria, but Daddy asked me if I wanted one of his craved plaques. I did, so I requested a nice "Home is Where the Heart is", cuz to me that is soo true. But I don't know when I'll recieve it. Knowing him, he might forget, but I don't know if he'll do it soon (or if he's done it yet) cuz I don't know how much time he can spare right now. Oh well. We'll see...
Jan. 21st I enjoyed my Sabbath rest as I went to church and saw my friends, I even participated in the sermon (turning pages, reading the passages, singing all the songs). I sat by Scotty (pretty much) "all day", in Sabbath School, during the sermon, and during lunch. Then I enjoyed getting to know four ppl by doing a fun "game" b4 we (everyone present) talked about the plans for the seminars in May.
There was no time to go on a hike that day, but I didn't mind, cuz I was going to see Amy (one of my friends) in a school play at CAA (Columbia Adventist Academy). I got to see Rachel, her mom, Amy, Felicia, and also Talya. The food was good (tho I didn't like my alfredo pasta...too vegan 4 me!) and the play was fantastic! It was sooooooooo hilarious! =) lol. Any was a crazy, Peta fan, hippy girl w/an anger problem. She had a hard time not laughing at times- she'd have a perfectly good glare, but then she couldn't help but grin (once). It was very funny and I really enjoyed myself!
It was about a group of kids in a class for "those who need help w/problems", trying to keep their teacher and their class coz some laides were going to come and "inspect" it to see i it was worth keeping. There was a preppy girl, a boy "so full of himself" a girl who "took" ppls "personalities" or, um, acted like that person (Jane mainly "took over" her teacher's style and, the funny thing was, she didn't know it!), a boy who talked too much and too fast, then Amy, and a new guy )he had trouble w/speaking right in a big group). I'm glad Jim recored it coz it'll be fun to watch it again! =)
I also got to talk to Rachel, Amy, Donna (their mom), Jim (their dad) and Felicia and Talya. And b4 I left Amy gave me a friendship keychain and a pic she'd drawn. I had a great time and I'll never 4get it! =) lol
I spent @least 4 days at my mom's-Jan. 24-27th. It was the first time I'd seen their new apt. and I really liked it! There was more space and more room. Zach had his own room, too. And I enjoyed my stay. I checked my email every chance I got. I remember spending, Wednesday w/Mom (practically all day), and we went shopping. I bought 2 pairs of jeans (with Mom's help) , and she also bought me a locked journal and a big, ringed notebook.
While there I borred the Relient K cd I'd put on hold @ the library. I liked the song (I think called) "Marylan Manson Ate My Girlfriend". I hadn't heard it b4 and I thought it was funny, but it had some truth to it. Expresses how I feel about my brother and his "faith".
