Lets see, where do i start?

Well...it's summer. July to be more specific. My Dad has a blog. Said I should start one. Why? Who knows. Probably cuz I never write in my journal. Then i saw Celeste had one. So blogging must be cool then, right? So far this summer...I have lots of homework. Honors English and AP U.S. history. Why did i take these classes? I have no idea. Haven't done like any of it. Have only read the first ten chapters in Grapes of Wrath. Haven't taken notes. Not even started on my essay for it. Haven't even attempted to start memorizing the presidents and their years in office. Lets all just say this together...I'm screwed.

Only nine more days until my birthday. Sixteen. Ugh.

Now lets see. What have I been doing this summer? Hanging out with Manilla a lot. (That's Christelle for those who don't know) Made some new friends : Taylor, Paige, Trevor, Shyanne, Katie, Olivia, Teal...New friends are always a good thing. Albert, Ryan, Ryan's little brother, Becca, Zach, Lindsay and I went and saw Batman the other day. Such an awesome movie. I've been hanging out with Tina lately also. She's crazy. I love it. Last night Tina, Ashley, Nate, Bell and I hung out at Tina's house. Then later walked over to Kevin May's house and he joined our party. We just sat in the street and shot Ashley with the air soft gun. I shot Nate in the ear...ooops. I haven't really hung out with any of my Murray friends. I miss them. Especially my senior buddies. I guess they are now my graduated and free buddies. Celeste called last week to invite me to play frisbee!! Couldn't go :( I had already promised Becca that I would go to the pool party with her. Haven't seen Celeste in FOREVER! For sure miss her. She makes me laugh.

I wish my family was a vacation family...but no we aren't like that. I get shocked looks when i say " No i have never been to lake Powell." I think the last time my family took a road trip some where was when we moved to Colorado. The 24th of July is comin up, so almost all my friends are gonna be gone on vacation. So I'm alone. Parker is going to snake river and then bear lake. lucky. Heather will be in Washington. Emily is going to lake Powell. Kortney is goin off to some family vacation. Shan is going boating. Not sure what Tyson is doing, but its not like he ever hangs out with me any way. But at least Manilla is stayin here. And she doesn't have work so maybe I'll tag along with her where ever she goes. Her family likes me so that's a good thing. Her family is awesome. They make me laugh.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm focusing on courage right now. It's what i don't have at the moment but need to obtain. Because honestly, he scares the crap out of me.
