Today was the day I actually went to see Pirates. It was not as good as the first one but I still liked it nonetheless. I've hung out with a lot of friends from school lately, so that's really cool. I love having things to do! I just need to make sure not to lose touch with anyone, because that happens really easily.

The Classic is in just a few days, AHH! I am sooo excited and soo nervous. I know I won't do too well but like I said, just qualifying is an amazing accomplishment. And there will be a lot of amazing gymnasts there, I can't wait to meet them all! I bet I'll be nervous and giddy around some of them. But then again, maybe the people who would make me nervous won't be there because they're already qualified to Nationals. Who knows!

Ahh! A lot has happened lately! I QUALIFIED TO CLASSICS! :) At the Gaithersburg meet, which was the last possible chance to qualify... and I did it! How cool is that? My first year as a really competitive elite and I made it to Classics! I am so excited about that! I know I probably won't do too well there because I'll be up against all the best, but it is still a pretty nice accomplishment if you ask me! It was more than I had hoped to achieve this year, so that absolutely rocks!

In other news, I don't really have any. I've been seeing my friends a lot, so that's fun. And the new Pirates of the Caribbean comes out today (so excited!) and I believe I'm going to see it tomorrow. Hopefully it's as amazing as the first one!

Ok, that's about it for now :)

Today was my first day off from school. It was kind of bittersweet, because it was nice to have all that extra time to do gymn stuff, and other stuff, but I also missed my friends. But none of them live too far away so it should be alright.

Rissa's suprise party is on Saturday, so that will be lots of fun. And I will get to see some friends there, which is cool.

As far as the boys go, I am still not sure. I still really like all of them, so I can't decide. And I ran out of things to say again.

Tomorrow is the last day of school which is both good and bad at the same time. Summer will be nice, but it is sooo hot all the time! Blah. Anyway, today Rissa and I went to get our nails done. It was fun, but I'm afraid mine will chip off really soon. But oh well, what can you do?

Unbelievably enough, I have nothing else to say now!

Things are going well. Yesterday Tyler and I went to this local carnival thing. It's like one of those traveling carnivals where there are rides and games and very fattening food. We went on some of the rides. He was scared of a bunch of them but I am fearless, so I went on all of them and sometimes he just watched. He won me a little stuffed duck with a red bow tie when I was on one of the scary rides, how cute! But then I dropped it in the bumper car and it got all dirty, but I still really like it. So that was a fun way to spend my Sunday afternoon!

Today after school and whatnot, Eileen took Rissa and I to Target to buy us each something. That was really nice! I chose this skirt... it's dark gray (the color name is "petrol"- cool) and its kind of ruffley and it has tiny little beads on part of it so it looks kind of shiny. It's hard to explain, but I love it! I saw it and I was like "wow, I have to have this" but there was only one, but it just happened to be my size, how perfect!

Rissa's 16th birthday is in two weeks, and we're having a huge suprise party! I can't wait, I know she'll love it. She wants a car but they are not buying that for her, becuase they think she'll just crash it, and they don't really have enough money to do that. BUt she is going to get a job I guess and then they'll help her pay for it. That's cool. And I'm really excited about the party!

And the best news of all... Mom is pregnant! She said she wanted to wait to make sure to tell me, but the baby is due in January... January 13th I think is the exact date. I asked if they have any names picked out yet and they said no, but that I am welcome to help them pick one out. So I am going to brainstorm what I want my future sibling to be named. So that is very, very exciting news.

And I'm done.

Today at school people got yearbooks. I obviously hadn't ordered one ahead of time but I made some good friends that I want to remember, so I went to see about buying one. They're $50. Yikes! I don't have that much money to spend! I mean, I do but I don't want to, that took me a long time to save up! But I am buying it anyway tomorrow, and hoping that someone will pay me back for at least half of it because they love me. But if not, I'll be ok.

Yesterday was 06/06/06 (obviously) and people were freaking out about it all day but nothing happened. I could have told you that. But I guess you can't reason with superstitions. It was kind of funny to watch anyway.

I started reading the first Harry Potter book today. Rissa lent it to me, because she is obsessed and has all of them. She told me she thinks I'll really like it, so we'll see. I read a little of it but didn't have time for much else.

After school today I hung out with Taylor, Tyler and Jessie. It was fun, we just sat in a circle and talked for a long time. It's so weird ot have crushes on three guys at once because it changes who I like the most. Like for most of the day I liked Bryson the most, and then when I saw Derek I kind of forgot about Bryson, but when I was talking to Tyler I liked him the most. Oh well, it's fun nonetheless. And in general, I'm just incredibly happy to have made so many good friends already.

Wow, sorry for being such a slacker lately with this. I just have been so busy or homesick (or both) and didn't feel like writing. Overall, things have been going well, and I think I'm more or less done with being homesick for now, but for a while I was having a hard time. I didn't want to talk to anyone, I just sat in my room and felt sorry for myself. But like I said, now things are looking better.

Competitions have been alright. I've been doing decently for someone who just became elite, but of course I would like to do better. I'd love to qualify to Classics, but I don't see that happening this year. It just kind of sucks because then I have to wait a whole year to have a shot at being on the National Team. I definitely wouldn't expect to make it this year, but if I keep working hard I might be ready like in the late winter or whatever, but oh well. There will be next summer.

An update about the friend situation. My friends, I would say, are:
Dina, Logan, Brittany, Carrie, Morgan, Jessie, Jess, Taylor, Dan, Derek, Lyla, Bryson, Tyler (we had to work together on a project and he's really cool), Steph (her locker is next to mine) and Caitlyn (she's on my bus). So those are the people I'd consider my friends. The ones I like best are Taylor, Tyler, Bryson, Jess, Lyla, and of course Derek. But to be honest, I actually have crushes on Ty, Bryson AND Derek right now. Yipes, I am such a girl. Thankfully they will never see this. And I know if I want anything to happen I need to make up my mind, but I'm having fun the way it is being able to flirt with all of them, so I'm good for now. But my best friends are Taylor and Tyler. And they are good friends to, so we're kind of like a three musketeers type deal. It's really cool :)

Ok, so that is about all I can think of. And I promise to [try to] write more frequently now.

I haven't written in so long, sheesh. I hate when that happens, but sadly it does. Tutoring ended on Friday. It's a relief to not be bogged down all the time with extra work, and I'm pretty much caught up so that rocks. Derek and I exchanged phone numbers and screen names! COOL! That means we will (hopefully) hang out outside of school! I hope he would be the one to initiate it but if I don't hear from him soon I might do it myself. I also exchanged info with Lyla and she actually already called me this weekend to see if I wanted to go watch a movie with her, so I did. That's cool! And there were other people there... so I am well on my way to making some good friends.

Speaking of friends, the people that I would consider my "friends" are pretty much those I mentioned before: Dina, Logan, Brittany, Carrie, Morgan, Jessie, Jess, Taylor, and Dan, as well as Derek and Lyla, and this other guy Bryson that I met randomly the other day. We bumped into each other (literally) in the library and just started talking. Coolness!

As far as routiens go... sheesh, do not get me started. I haven't really done much on them yet, which is hideous of me. I have vowed to do it very soon though. Wish me luck!

Bed time!!

I really like Gilmore Girls. It's a really good show. I shouldnt've asked for the DVDs of it because now I can't stop watching! Actually that's totally a lie because I barely have time to do anything as it is, but whatever. I still really like it and have been watching it a lot, but a lot by my standards would be barely at all by someone else's.

I will be done wiht the tutoring stuff at school soon. Kind of bittersweet, because it will be nice to actually be able to use that time to my own uses and not be behind, but I will miss the tutors. Except Jennie. But maybe I can talk to them outside of school and stuff, or hang out with them. I still want to ask Derek to hang out. Le sigh.

Other than that everything has been going well. Except for the routine creating process, because I don't have any done yet, so that will be a big project but hopefully I can get cracking on that soon.

La de da! Yesterday was fantastic because I got tutored by Derek. Le sigh. I totally have a massive crush on him. I was actually thinking about asking him to go out and do something sometime, but I'm scared that that would be too forward. Lucky for me, I'm not the type to have an issue doing that, so I probably will at some point. But I'm afraid it's a bad idea. I asked Rissa because she knows him better because they've been in school together for a while and she said she didn't think it wasn awful idea, but that he doesn't know me well so he might say no. Or that it might be awkward since he "works" for me. But anyway, I'm thinking I might like next week or something. Although I'm not sure how long the tutoring will last for. So we'll have to see.

Today after school we went shopping to get me nice shoes. I need them to be able to dress up for stuff. We got them at Payless so they were nice and cheap. Score! That is my kind of purchase!

Today I got tutored by Lyla, and she's really cool. I'm glad Lyla and Derek take care of 4/5 of the week because Jennie is not my favorite person, but Lyla is really cool! I think we could and hopefully will actually be friends after/outside of this tutoring issue.

Speaking of friends, I haven't really made any yet, which is sad, but I'm optimistic. There are a bunch of nice people in my classes (Dina, Logan, Brittany, Carrie, Morgan [boy], Jessie, Jess, Taylor [girl], Dan) so hopefully I can make friends with some of them. I just need to go up to them and talk. I am totally that type, I just haven't had much of a chance to yet, sheesh!
