My sister is pregnant again! I'm excited for her and I hope that she doesn't have any complications this time. I'm also excited because I get to see her in three weeks. She's graduating so the whole family will be in Washington. Should be fun. I only have about a week of summer school left. I can't wait to be done. Eddie graduates on the 26th. Finally he can come home for good. I'm happy.

Took my last final this afternoon. I feel liberated. Summer school class starts Monday, but it is a philosophy class with Blackburn and I love that guy. His classes make me think. Thinking is good. I work a lot this weekend, but it pays for gas which is almost $4.00 a gallon. Ridiculous. Also ridiculous is the fact that I haven't blogged since March. I'll have to do it more.

It's Official

So I decided that I'm changing my major to Interdisciplinary English and Psychology. I'll still graduate at the same time, which is amazing and then I just have grad school after that, but I think I'm at a point in my life where I can handle it. It was a good decision to make too, because I felt so tired with English and I have always loved Psychology much much more and lets face it, I really don't like high school students all that much. Kids I love. So I want to be a School Psychologist and I can't wait til next semester when I have my psych classes. And you know what else I can't wait for? Spring Break which starts tomorrow and I am soooo happy about it. I need a rest. AND my 21st birthday is on the 25th of this month. So excited. Life is peachy.

People are mean to me this week...

Ok so this time I had a woman accuse me of lying after being horribly embarrassed. I'll explain the story. So I was super excited to wash my truck in a car wash because I rarely go to them and it's kinda fun so my friend Samantha was with me and we pull in line and we are waiting. All the while I'm really excited (this might be my problem in the first place, perhaps I should just be un happy so that I don't get so disappointed) and after waiting about 5 minutes it is finally my turn. So I get up there and I try to put money in the machine and it won't take my money. I have the most crisp $5 bill and it refuses to take it. So Samantha tells me to try putting a dollar of quarters in it first. So I put a quarter in and it blares out super loud, "COIN ACCEPTED" Great now everyone in the whole vicinity knows that I'm putting coins in this stupid machine and it says that for every single quarter. So I get a dollar in it and I try the $5 bill again and it still won't take it so I try a $1 and it won't take that either. So Samantha says just get your change back and we'll go pay up front. So I try to get the change and it won't give it back to me so now I'm all flustered and the people behind me are wondering what is taking so long and so I just pull out all the quarters I can find and I put them in until it gets to $5 and all the while its blaring "COIN ACCEPTED". Ok so all is well besides me being horribly embarrassed. It takes the coins, I'm moving into the machine and I go too far so it says back up. So I am backing up and it keeps telling me to back up like I can't just back up to where I was supposed to be its just broken. So by this time the people behind me are out of their cars and they go the machine and call for help. So the lady at the gas station comes over and she tells me I have to pull around and explains that once you go too far you can't back up. Well then why does the stupid machine have a back up sign?!?! Ok so the embarrassment doesn't end there. You would hope that it does, but it does not. Gas station lady tells me she'll give me a voucher. So that explains why everyone else was so fast, they weren't trying to pay in cash, let alone quarters. So I'm waiting for my voucher and she's taking awhile so I walk over to her cash register and she's like this says that you didn't pay. I'm about to laugh out loud at that statement because I payed in the most embarrassing way and so I tell her, "well I paid and I had to do it in quarters because your machine wouldn't take my cash" and she looks at me like I'm crazy and says "you paid $5 in quarters?" and I'm like "yes because it wouldn't take my cash" she still doesn't believe me and says, "you really had $5 in quarters? That's like two rolls of quarters"
umm exaggeration statement of the year award. "Yes".
gas station lady: "That's twenty quarters"
me: "yeah $5"
GSL: "You had twenty quarters?"
GSL disgusted voice: "Well if you really had that many quarters you shouldn't have put them in the machine you should have just paid here first, but here's a voucher"
Me ready to cry: " Ok, Thanks"

Moral of the story:
1. Don't EVER pay in quarters even if the machine accepts them because you will be ridiculed for it and no one will believe that you did it.
2. Don't go to car washes where they have a "BACK UP" sign because it's pointless.
3. Shell gas station lady in Rancho San Diego is mean.

Preggers News...

So my sister is pregnant and I am so super excited that I just want to go fly to her and squeeze her. She's about 5 weeks along and she and the baby are ok, but she's been having cramps for about 3 weeks now so prayer is much appreciated. My whole family is already just in love with this baby that God is forming and to hear her talk about it is so stinkin cute. She told me the other day, "I just love my baby. I know it's like the size of a peanut, but I love my peanut baby."

In other news, school is in full swing and it's alright so far. Ethics class makes me feel crazy and out of whack because our teacher drills us with questions that none of us can answer to his satisfaction. The first day he asked us to define what is good. So lots of conversations like that every time that class meets. It keeps my brain working. I also sit next to a kid with blue hair that people call Sweezy like Sneezy with a "w". I just like to refer to him as blue hair guy. He's very nice and his voice reminds me of Tim Gunn on project runway except a little less homo.

ummm....yes and I miss Marisa. I think a lot of things in my life changed when she left and one of them being that I stopped drinking Chai Tea. It's like its a sacred bestest thing and I don't blog. So yes Marisa I miss you and I miss the summer with Capernwrayers. Specifically Janice and Courtnay. You two are the sweetest girls ever.

I love you guys.

I have a Tundra!!!!

This is what my truck looks like except in white. But otherwise it is exactly the same. And it only had 29,000 miles on it when we bought it so it's like brand new. I love it.
