 ughhhhhhhhh.

I hate this. TAKS week is coming up. Here thats kind of the end of the final test for the year [for the teacher, we have separate finals, but we still take this big test]. Well usually they give us little homework during TAKS week, because it's the biggest test of the year and they tell us to go to be early and eat a good breakfast, thats how much they care. This year, however, every teacher decided to assign one of those projects that you have to stay up till 12 doing to meet the deadline even if it's the only project your doing at the time. Well i have THREE count them THREE. I have to 'book' a teachers convention in Atlanta for Communication Application, make a booklet, power point, and poster. Then for geometry we're re-building the Washington Monument, i'm the leader of that group so i have to do a little bit of everything. That means i have to help build a model, to size. calculate area and stuff, do a paper on the history, and figure out how much it would cost to rebuild it today. Ontop of all this i have to keep the group to geather, and i got two guys that plan to slack it all off. Finaly for english i have to do a report f Genocide for out WWII section. Don't forget i have to do this all while taking tests that decide which college i'm going to, along with my sister going to three different proms and my brother and dad going out of town to fix a water leak at our dear lease. 

It sucks, thats all i can say.

I wish i could just curl up in my bed and snooze till school is over. I think that may just happen seeing as i feel like i'm getting sick. Sick durring finals and TAKS perfect.

At least none of my plants have gone into sock over their moving into a new bed. I wish i could go to the park. i havn't gone in such a long time... T_T

dose that sound like a good title? i'm not so sure...

my back huuuuurts.

Anyway I transferred my plants! They outgrew their starter things so me and mater dug up a section of the garden area next to our house. It only had dead plants and clover growing into it so it was easy enough to clear out. we have the peas growing along the back, with the pumpkins, cantaloupe, and water melon rings growing down hill in that order. I took a picture of it with Carl, my camera.

these are the Jalapenos that are just sprouting up

Anyway i've had a good time since I last posted. We went to visit my Grandmother this Sunday, it rained all day and my plants nearly drowned. however it was pleasant  to visit my grand mother, we don't get to see her much.

I also saw how to train your dragon, a new animated movie that just came out this weekend. It's so adorable. If you like dragons that are cat-like you should see it.

Today Tsung, me and Chase [a freind] got into talking about polotics in Com.App. I would like to clear the air of one thing, because i'm not very good with government and history facts. A socialist is some one who thinks that the government should have influence in the economy right? At the time I couldn't remember if thats what the definition is or not. I would just like this to be cleared up because we all have to do a big project together and i don't want to be doing work with the two bickering with me only understanding half of what they say.

so that is it.

still thinking of a title

 I need to come up with an overall title for my journals, because it is bugging me that i can't think of a title for every journal.
Maybe it'll be based on gardening. I don't know. Is there a specific name for a garden journal?

Today was the Day of Silence, i participated as usual. I keep forgetting how long it takes to communicate by writing. At least my class mates didn't ragg on me again this year. Personaly i don't see my self as a lesbian, but most of my freinds are gay so i want to support their desicion. You should be able to  love who you want, guy or girl. 

The jalapeño bushes that my Mater and me planted sprouted the other day, i can't wait for them to grow into full blown bushes. I adore spicy food. My peas and water melons are ready to plant inside a real garden. Some of the cantaloupe  hasn't sprouted yet though. i hope it's ready by my birth day. Jacie, my freind,has her B-day right after mine, so i want to give her some as a present. Can anyone accept Cantaloupe as a bad present? maybey i should get her something else with it. I don't think my strawberries are doing to well. Mater says i've watered them to much. i'm not sure. I planted them late, i hope they grow. Tomorrow we are going to dig and plant a new bed for everything i've germinated.

needing to think of a title for my journals

 I feel like a slug.

   I'm still of the books splurge. i'm not purchasing them [who has the money these days?!]. However i did get bored of the fictional section of the school's library and move on to applied sciences. Imagen the discovery channel but you can chose what topics you can learn about. Did you know that in an island of Indonesia named Flores there was a race of tiny people around the time Australia was discovered? I'm not talking about an island of munch-kins either, they found a whole other branch of humans called homo floresienis that averaged about 3 feet, a little above a meter in feet. The dating of the bones shows that they still lived around the time humans started settling down in Indonesia and Australia. That means they had been in contact with humans for 30 years before they died off. Kind of makes you wonder if Faeries do exist.
   Lately I've been feeling down a little, i'm maturing a little [finaly] so I kind of feel like there's a gap growing between me and my freinds at school. Then a gain i don't really have any classes with them. Yeah i get to be the person who everyone knows but never sees because the stupid school system is bent on putting you in classes with complete strangers. At least i get to see my T at lunch. I've also made a new freind. Tung, he's a guy who transfered to our school in the middle/beginning of the year and he's really nice. I just wish i could understand his Asian accent a little more.
   I wish i was Irish; they have the accent. Not British, Scottish, or any other accent. Irish.
   So that's been my thoughts for the last week or so, however far back my memory stretches. 

-hoping your life is better than mine.

So today was a really productive day, my Mater [mom] went to Home Depot and bought  pump for the fishes' pond in the back yard along with some stuff for my garden. I have to say my garden isn't all that much unfortunately. all I've been able to grow is some Radishes that have convinced my the soil in our back yard has steroids in it along with some bug-devoured spinach. i bought some peas, peppers, and some other seeds today at home dept. I'm going to start on them tomorrow with some starter pots and such. I also planted some strawberries today^^ i almost missed the planting season because I confused a memory from last year, but thankfully Mater didn't forget! i'm going to have to work tomorow for sure, happy easter!

Just something

 I Feel so accomplished lately, since the beginning of spring break I've real almost Seven whole books, and none of them are even close to Harry Potter.

First I read the 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th novels of the Stephanie plum series. always a good series for Teenage girls. The first one is Titled One For The Money, by Jannet eveonevitch of soething along those lines... they're a good series about a Lady named Sephonie who becomes a bounty hunter when she hits bankrupt. it's got some cute guys in it.

The Bloody Jack series, by La Myer. Where a Girl named 'Jacky' sneaks onto a British naval ship to escape death on London's streets. Set around the Louisiana Purchase time.
 
I recommend The Hunger Games  by Suzanne Collins. It's set in the future of the U.S.A., where after a big world The states are divided into 13 territories by the government. After a rebellion in all the territories, the 13th territory is destroyed and the other barley scape by. The new government reminds the territories who's boss by taking two kids from each territory every year to compete to the death. 

Well thats what i have been up to lately.

~Hope you all are having more fun than me

 I was searching for something to do, and i came up with this title. I was very disappointed when the search came up null. Sadly i must take ten whole respect points from the LiveJournal's users. If you happen to come across this in a similar way, please comment. [I need a little help with conquering the world] That is all. Farethewell.

POST SCRIPT/[P.S.]:
I do not have any thing against the smaller people, I have many smaller friends.

For those who worried, I didn't die

Sorry I have not been on for a long time. The internet cut out in my house. My Happy Aquarium on Facebook was in distress  so I got my self online to rescue them. [Da-dada-daaaa, Missy to the rescue!] Spring break is almost over, a week of being stuck at home with Harry Potter reruns has drained my batteries so much, I actually miss school. I keep having nightmares that I have a history project due Monday. But a quick glance at my "agenda" shows that during the time I pay attention in class, nothing was assigned. Call me a nerd if you want. All I want to do is get through school like the rest of you. I figure that if you do your work, school is shorter because you don't spend it in a lecture. My week has been, very unsurprisingly uneventful. though I have been in a visit the old songs/Saturday cartoon rush since I found out that the only kids channel we have is replaying the original Yu-gi-oh Series every Saturday morning. I forgot how funny the expressions Joey makes are.  ... that last sentence seems wrong grammar wise, forgive me.

So thats what life has done to me during the last few days, weeks... i don't believe it has been a full month but it is possible.
Have fun with your life.

Bean trees Entry #3

sorry, but i have to make this short Mrs. wakefeild computer is acting up.

I thought Been Trees was a realy interesting book to read, however i didn't like the ending. it would have been a little better if she went and visited her mother instead of just calling her. I also feel that the conversation with Turtle at the end was a liitle to cheesy, even for some one who likes cheese. However the plot is realy interestingi i enjoyed reading the book.

mphallard
I feel real sorry for anyone who's going into winter, but here it's finaly getting WARM which is a good thing because personaly i have never liked the cold.
Our theater class is almost done with our spring cleaning. usually we just straighten up the rooms, but this year our director decided to clean our all our unneeded props. The theater hasn't been this clean since it was built and empty. Sadly this also marks the end of the school year. i'm realy going to miss all my senior freinds, but we're finaly getting new light and sound equipment so Summer can come as soon as it wants to cuse our system is from the 80s, and i'm not joking about that. It has history. lets hope the decide to extend the loft instead of raising the roof.
