I'm a Delinquent

Today I was sitting in AP Java class at the end of the day and I get called down to my administrator's office, which can never be too good. So as I was walking down, I was trying to think of anything I could have done or any reason I would be called in. The only thing I could come up with was leaving school early too many times, but each time I had a note, so I didn't think that was it.

Well, turns out I was written up. Seriously? Somebody wrote me a referral. I had no idea. Evidence:

Well, apparently my bus driver wrote me a referral because I "was told twice to face forward but continued to sit with [my] back to the aisle and this is a safety violation". It was from October 6, and it is now the 28th. My administrator looked my name up and decided I wasn't the most pressing issue, because I am a good with NO discipline record and great grades.

My administrator didn't care at all about the referral. It was a waste of his and my time. He just dismissed it as a warning and it didn't get recorded on my file. He jokingly told me to frame it or scrapbook it. Blogging about it is better.

Please Hurry

This week will hopefully go by quickly. I have my to-do list already planned out. After I finish all of this I will be in NEW YORK on Saturday morning. With all that crap I have to do and going to school everyday, the week should go by fairly quickly, right? I'm hoping so.

I am the Ultimate Procrastinator

It is 100% true. You will probably never, ever meet someone in your life who procrastinates more than I do. In fact, right now I am using this blog post as a way to procrastinate. You see, I have a 2,000 word research paper on The Scarlet Letter due on Monday. It is Saturday night. I only have 400 words.


A lengthy but worthwhile exerpt from President Thomas S. Monson's remarks to the Young Women in their March 2009 General Meeting:

My final plea tonight is that you have the courage to stand firm for truth and righteousness. Because the trend in society today is away from the values and principles the Lord has given us, you will almost certainly be called upon to defend that which you believe. Unless the roots of your testimony are firmly planted, it will be difficult for you to withstand the ridicule of those who challenge your faith. When firmly planted, your testimony of the gospel, of the Savior, and of our Heavenly Father will influence all that you do throughout your life. The adversary would like nothing better than for you to allow derisive comments and criticism of the Church to cause you to question and doubt. Your testimony, when constantly nourished, will keep you safe.

Overall this was a good week. Parts were long, but it was great. Hopefully the weekend is good as well :)

It is Fall

Ryan had his preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch this week, which he loved. He went to Snead's farm and played on slides, rode on a tractor, and picked a pumpkin. As soon as I came home from school he wanted me to help him carve it, so I did. I couldn't say no to his cute four year old excited face.

Carving it up.

I made him pull out all of the pumpkin guts and seeds.

Us with the finished pumpkin. It is supposed to be "scary".

Life Savers

I make to-do lists like they are going out of style. For some reason I can never use an agenda--they just do not work for me. I forget to write things down and I really don't like having to look at 7 different days of the week to figure out what I need to do. To-do lists are my life savers. I make one at the beginning of the week with everything coming up. I am not the most organized person in the world, but these things help me. Here is my to-do list from this past week. I had a whole page and tons to do:

I love it when I finish something and then I get to cross or check it off my list. It's a good feeling. I am pretty sure I will make to-do lists until the day I die.

Where on Earth

Has the time gone? Really. Ever since school started up again, I rarely ever find time to update this thing. I didn't even pop in to say happy birthday to my mom or harrison on this thing. I am a slacker.

Recently, mom turned 41. FOURTY ONE. Dang, she is old ;). Harrison turned eleven. Suzanne's birthday is this week. Crazy. School is crazy too. I am tired of school and really want this year to be over. Fast forward, please? Thanks.

However, it is fall. I LOVE fall. My favorite. Too bad it doesn't last very long at all. Leaves are changing, it is pouring rain (bleck), and the temperatures are dropping. I love fall colors and smells.

Anyways. Hope you enjoyed this ramble-fest. It successfully distracted me from doing homework for a few minutes.

Oh hey. Here's a cool blog I found. Love it.
Check it out, folks.
