I just got a letter from Ariel!!!! She's my pen pal who was friends w/ Elizabeth b4 Eliz moved here and hasn't written to me in I dont know how long! Anyway, I haven't update in forever....so I'm going to try and squish it all into one little journal entry...
Thursday: Went to work, filed, duh, pondered how stupid the phrase "how are u" is. (I mean really, what if I said not so good? Do u think they really care HOW I AM? No, I dont think so! Ok, anyway! :)) Not much else that I can remember.
Friday: More sign language fun, altho Michael was being bad which is the first time I've ever seen him like that. I took pictures of everyone which I hope to have put up on my website eventually. Left my camera there tho. Then went to see Cats and Dogs w/ Elizabeth and Rachel (which is great cuz I haven't seen either of them in a while.) I really dont know if that movie sucked or not. There were some high points (the 3 of us laughing when no one else was) and the plot was good....I guess it just wasn't for me. Then at night, since Pete was so great (Pete, if ure reading this THANK YOU and I LUV YOU! and tell ure dad I luv him too.) and gave us rides, the guys (Eugene, Eric, Pete, and later Clark) and I went mini-golfing. It was fun, we went on the driving range, went on the course, and eventually ate ice-cream. (Altho mine had little blue things on it...very suspicious.) I also liked looking at the stars w/ Pete, he's a really great person. Now if only I could work on those PDAs....
Saturday: Made my teeth all shiny bright! In other words, we went to the dentist. Sadly, Emily, she did not give me any guy advice, but she did tell me a story about her blind friend married to his wife who couldn't smell. He went into the fridge and smelled something bad but couldn't see it, and she couldn't smell it but could see...quite enthralling. Went to church, went to bbsit the Smarths (4 dollars an hour, poo! But its $ all the same) till 2 in the morning. Oh, and somewhere in there I saw Eugene's band's website. Anyone who hasn't seen it yet:
www.listen.to/njok.com (I think)
Sunday: Went to the pool w/ Eesh for my sister Katy's b-day party. It was cool, altho her friends scare me a little (was I ever that young and teeny-bopperish?) I had a fun time, and later I saw Elizabeth there, which was great! Mucho amusement. Later that night I went to see Final Fantasy w/ Eugene. It might have been a good movie, I'm really not sure. When I was paying attention, I was confused. The animation was amazing tho.
Monday: Deaf school and then ::scary music:: driving lessons! AH!!! I am a BAD driver!!! My teacher, Mrs. Carol Brown, is an old, more or less easy-going lady, but makes me sooooo nervous! I could not even turn! And I ran over the curb twice and I'm just not used to how the car responds to how I turn the wheel or brake. She just says, you have to get used to it. I agree, but how do I do that w/o practice??? 6 hours is much too nerve-racking for me. But I did better on.......
Tuesday: I at least could turn the corners. I got my permit all ready, so I'm hoping I won't need more than 6 hrs like she said I might need. We haven't been on Route 10 yet, but I know we don't need to do that till the last day. (PLEASE dont make me go on Route 80!) My last day is tomorrow (thursday). I went to work as usual, where more ppl asked me "how are u" and I pondered some more how silly that question is unless u sincerely want to know the answer. Not much else, save for some of that sh*t from b4 coming back juuuuuuuuust a little. But not too badly.
Wednesday: Today! :) Not much happened today. Went to the deaf school as usual and it was disgustingly hot! No a/c!! :( But on the upside, one of our in-class caterpillars made a chyrsallis (yay! And I can sign that!) so maybe they'll become butterfly's b4 school ends. And Michael said the sweetest thing today. I asked hiim how he was (haha, ok so I'm a hypocrite) and he said "umm.....happy!" I thought that was the sweetest thing I have ever heard. I mean, who says that? Or more importantly, why don't ppl say that? I really love that kid. It's so sad that next week is their last week. I will miss all of my kids. :(
Oh! And! I finished Mists of Avalon!!! Finally! Good book, altho the ending was a bit sad and open-ended. Now I can watch the mini-series!
Ok, I believe u are now all up to date. I'm gonna go change my bio now (Emily, u'll appreciate this) and then read Arielle's letter. Followed by growing dread about tomorrow's last (I hope) lesson.
Hope to update later, if I dont crash tomorrow! (ahhhhhhhh!!!) DRIVING BAD!
