I have learned that in order to truly appreciate a white Christmas you need to come to somewhere like CA. Just yesterday my grandmother was talking to a little boy and mentioned the lack of snow. He told her that when they wanted snow, all they had to do was go to the mountains. The mountains are and hour away! My aunt Cathy (that's who we're visiting) likes to say that in California the snow knows where it belongs. Well, for me this is the first green Christmas I've had in... what... 5 years? Maybe more... WOW...

American Coins

Ready for a funny story... here goes.
For the past year my mom has been gathering all of her change in a Christmas Jar to give to someone in need. Well, today we were counting it and, noticing how many quarters there were, I decided to see if I could find all 50 states. Well, after 1 hr. 30 min. of searching through all those coins TWICE, I have uncovered all of the fifty states, except for Arkansas. I am mad.

The funny thing about Thanksgiving, is that no matter how much goes wrong, from pumpkin pies that take 3 hours to bake to a turkey that got a bit too well done, you still finish off the day with a smile.

It has been decided that e=mc2 is really eggnog=macaroni & cheese2. Oh, and the proper way to say taco is thaco. Yep, I love group Chemistry tests.

Time can be so annoying. I'll be looking at my watch waiting for something to load and think "one Mississippi... two Mississippi... three Mississippi..." and feel like each second takes forever. Then that night I'll look back at my day and say where did all that time go! Time is so deceptive.

1) Admit to your brother that something he did scared you. If you do he will never stop.

2) Bake an Apple Pie the Saturday night before Fast Sunday. Waiting all day with the prospect of pie makes it twice as hard.

3) Put off Cornell notes. DEATH!

The fascinating thing about humans is that when life gets too hard, they just sit down and cry. After a few tears they realize that they don't feel any better; so they cry some more. After that, when they still don't feel any better they realize that all that will help is standing up and moving forward. I suppose there are some people who can skip the tears steps, I just wish I was one of them.

Going through life, I've noticed some trends:

1. Whenever your parents try to get you to clean your room when your little they always say that once you get started it will be easy. They're also always wrong.

2. When you go to the doctor to get your first shot the doctor tells you that it won't hurt a bit. By the time your second set of shots come around they stop telling you that, because you know the truth.

3. The PE coach says that the more you run each day the easier it will get. The problem is each day they make you run further, eliminating any relief the 'getting easier' would give.

4. Now, taking all of these into consideration, when adults tell you that 'high school doesn't really matter as long as you get good grades' should we believe them? I DON'T THINK SO!

Drivers Edd *Instert Eye Rolling Here*

Definitions of Drivers Edd:

1. A class that's true purpose is to see how many teenagers are capable of staying awake through movies specially designed to put them to sleep.

2. A chance for whoever chooses to be the teacher to freak out students by suddenly putting on the chicken break for no apparent reason.

3. Proof that the state doesn't trust parents to teach their children the basics about driving such as: when there is a person in front of your car, don't run over them!

4. The most boring class ever invented.

The Way to Live

Work like you don't need money,

Love like you've never been hurt,

And Dance Like No One's Watching!

Best Quote Ever

If pro is the opposite of con, then what is the opposite of progress?

My Philosophy

Everyone's heard the saying 'if life gives you lemons make lemonade'. Well the truth is, there are a lot better better things to drink than lemonade. Apple juice for instance or just plain water. Personally, I actually enjoy the lemon juice itself. You need so much less of it to get so much more. Isn't that what life is all about, taking the few precious moments you've been given and getting as much as possible out of them? So, in my world, if life gives you lemons, get all the juice you can out of them; and if that's too much for you, save some for later.
