Hey. It's Thanksgiving and it's not really a party. I had plans to volunteer at the Scera at the exact same time as my Thanksgiving lunch but my plans have been ruined and now i am stuck at home with my crazy family all packed around a table with a dead bird on top. Hooray for Thanksgiving. Honestly i hate Thanksgiving almost more than anything else in the world it's just an excuse to get your family together and criticize as many people as you can, it's like a game; a game that only my grandma can win because no one but my father dares to talk back to her. And when my family isn't criticizing each other we are criticizing something else. In my family it's just easier not to show up to family things and risk becoming the target of the meal, which i feel i have been for the last few, it always starts with a sibling saying how are you and then i reply with ehh because i would really rather be just about any place else. Then my Grandma gets on me about how i never smile and then she just goes on and on about how i am a depressed bum that never smiles and she tries to get a smile out of me which only makes it worse and then we start to eat and my grandma always says something about what i am eating she'll tell me that i need to eat everything that is on the table and every time we get in this huge discussion about me being vegetarian and how i am crazy because meat is a privilege and i should appreciate it and things like that. Then there is usually a weight comment thrown in somewhere and i want to smack her. Luckily she hasn't really seen me so far today so she has just been going off about illegal immigrants and Mexicans which makes me even angrier than her going off at me so this is just awesome. So i hope your Thanksgiving is awesome cause i know mine won't be. On the plus side next year i will live in a dorm and i can just order a pizza and it will be a party. Any one wanna join me?
Random note for the day: Who came up with the word gobble? Why is that the word used to make a turkey noise and a word used to describe eating? Gobble. It's such a weird word.

So as you know i am a procrastinator so obviously i have gotten a ton of this done. I have actually gotten started so that's good. I am in the Nutcracker for my creative project and that will go until mid December ish so until then all of my weekends and free time is gone. i have taken the ACT once and i have yet to start preparing for the one next month. I have gotten acceptance letters to two colleges so that is good but i don't really want to go to either of them so i am hoping that i get into the one that i am applying to right now. I was going to have a school wide canned food drive next month for my service project, but the elementary school beat me to it so now i have no idea what i am going to do for 30 hours of service and i have yet to start working on my research paper. And best of all i still have to take classes on top of all of that and let me tell you it's a really party epically since i am taking 2 science classes and 2 math classes and i don't really know what's going on in those and i have a psychics test tomorrow morning and i am not prepared at all and i am currently failing that class so right now things are going real well for me. oh and Pre-Calc makes me want to cry. my mind is shot. i have brain goo coming out of my ears.
My body is shutting down, i can feel it. I have been spending all week in school and then i been going to rehearsal for nutcracker which really wears me out and makes me so stressed that i can't even sleep and thank goodness there are only two days of school this week but wait, the first nutcracker performance is this weekend so i get to spend 3 whole days of the break working on/preforming and the one day that i don't have to do nutcracker stuff is thanksgiving which is the holiday that i would like to shoot upside the face for so many reasons the main two being the fact that i hate the food and i am no fan of having my giant angry family crammed around a table arguing with each other... i hate Christmas for the same reason. I hate it so much that i am trying to work on Thanksgiving so i can avoid everyone. wow, aren't i just a little bundle of joy?
so this is me officially declaring that, one, i HATE Walden and i can't wait to leave the school and just about everyone in it, two, that Thanksgiving is terrible and three, i would like to shoot myself so if you have a gun can i borrow it?? please?

So i was playing with my dear friend Chance today during 3rd period and he decided that he wasn't on my blog enough so i am going to write an entire blog about him!! His response to that: "1. I am boring so you can't write that much. 2. I forgot. Oh wait! That's a lot of dedication. 3. Well, i don't have a third one but if i did it would be good."

Philly!! Hooray! Shi, Drew and i got there around 1 went to visitors center, where i got my mom cook book in hopes that she would make some of the yummy looking things inside. Then we all headed over to the liberty bell and i was surprised at how small it was, i guess for a bell it is big but i was expecting something hugetastic, but what ever, old bells with cracks in them are cool. Then we headed over to Benjamin Franklin's house, which wasn't really his house it was like a frame of his house and there were random quotes all over, and when i say random i mean it! They were way dumb like as if he was on crack or something there was one that was like i went shopping and got something for ten cents and my maid walked down the stairs. Really? Why are those all over the place? No one wants to read that! We want inspiring things to read! Either way i managed to get a kick out of it. Then there was independence hall, which was alright. And last but not least a duck tour which it a driving/boating tour, it was hard core!
Sunday June 28:
Woke up and went to church, what a surprise. Then the botanic gardens, which is Shi's favorite, i thought it was okay, flowers are cool things, i really enjoyed breathing there it felt so good!! We went home and watched meet the fockers, and i honestly could have lived without seeing it, the first one is way better. Then we walked around outside and called it a day.
Monday June 29:
Last day! Crazy right? I thought so. So i woke up packed, showered, ate, you know the norm then Shi was like so i have some clothes that you should have so i took them and i came home. End.

Okay, so we went grocery shopping a pretty normal Saturday thing, until we went to the most ghetto grocery store i have ever been to in my life, at first i was grossed out because it all looked pretty dirty, that was until i saw a kinder bueno, for those of you that don't know what that is, it is pretty much one of the greatest treats in the world and you can usually find it in the candy isle, unless you live in Utah because there is hardly any international food there, well anyways when i saw this kinder bueno drew said he would buy it for my and right then that ghetto store became the best place in the world. After going shopping, we, the three amigos went to check out the world war 2 monument, but drew couldn't find parking so he dropped Shi and i off at the monument and we met up with him down at the Lincoln memorial where a strange polish festival thing was going on. On our way back to the house we stopped at blockbuster and rented meet the parents which i enjoyed a lot and i am sure a lot of that enjoyment had to due with Robert De Niro reminding me of my father.
Sunday June 21st:
Sunday was pretty chill, we just went to church and then came home and ate dinner with Johnny and Andrea
Monday June 22nd:
I headed in the city all by my self in hope of seeing the holocaust museum before it was crazy packed full of people, but when i got there it was still closed and i had an hour to burn so i went to the Washington Monument and back to the WW2 monument because when i went the first time it was packed and i didn't have my camera. I still had a half hour but everything else was pretty far from the museum, so i just headed back and when i got there i found a line that had started forming at like 7 so i felt like a moron that i didn't see it the first time. Luckily i was only like a hundred people back and i was glad i didn't waste the rest of the hour messing around in DC like i had planned to. When i got to the front of the line i was able to get the earliest ticket since i was a party of one and i was able to go straight in which was very nice. Then i went in and got this passport thing and then you go up in an elevator where you pretty much walk through history, this museum was done really well and i enjoyed it but i was kinda hoping for it to be quite a bit more graphic then it was. After spending 4 hours in the museum i went to eat at a veggie place my mom recommended to me. Then my Dad called and we talked for a while and he said i should go down to the Daughters of the American Revolution Building and register to become a member. So i walked down there and i was the only person there and it was really creepy so i left and i went and chilled in a park across the street. I had just started to read when some singing African came up to me and started talking. I was kinda freaked out and his English wasn't that great and he kept mumbling in french and i was really confused, but we talked for like a hour and then he left. I decided that i was going to go to the other side of the mall just in case he decided he wanted to come back and chat because i was very done talking to him. When i got to the other side of the mall i saw the Vietnam and Korean War memorials which were pretty cool. Then i had to walk to Andrew's work which was like 15 blocks away. It was a party.

Friday June 12th:
I flew to the DC airport where Andrew picked me up, then he drove me down to the new Shi/Drew homestead where we met up with Chunky and Eric. I hadn't been at the new house long before Andrea and her kiddies showed up with dinner. Then Andrea took me back to the current living space of Shi and Drew, where I sat on the computer and facebooked until Eric, Drew and Chunky were done working on the house for the night and came home to That 70's Show and ice cream.
Saturday June 13th:
The boys got up bright and early, Shiloh and i slept in. The we went to the house where i knocked out a wall, which was a complete blast!!!
Sunday June 14th:
Eric headed home to Utah and the rest of us headed to church. After church Chunk, Drew, Shi and I went to the FDR and the Jefferson Memorials which were okay, they had some cool quotes and lots of water. Then we went back to the house and ate some ice cream and watched some SNL clips and Andrea came down and talked to us.
Monday June 15th:
Andrew and Shi went to work, Chunky and i checked out downtown, starting with the Capitol where we expected to get a super private tour that my father set up, but things didn't go the way we planned and we were thrown into the crap public tour. Then Chunk and I headed to the library of congress where we saw The Gutenberg Bible, it is one of three perfect copies on vellum in the world. Chunky was very excited about this discovery. P.S. the library of congress is BEAUTIFUL you should check it out. Next Chunk and I took the Metro the the world bank cafeteria where we had some insanely delicious food. After eating Drew told me about the world bank and i am a little in love with there cause. Then after Chunks 3rd bathroom break of the day we headed back down to the mall to check out a Smithsonian. We ended up going to the American History Museum for the rest of the day and only managed to see 1/3. That thing was crazy huge! That night at the house there was a little drama, it was all good though, no one died, but i am sure we all thought that some one was going too.
Tuesday June 16th:
Amy, her daughter, Andrea, her boys, Chunk and I went to the East Art Gallery, where we chased after children and saw minimal art, but paused in the cafe to have some early morning Italian ice cream. When we came back home Amy and her daughter left and Chunk went to do some last minute work on the house before he left that night. Chunk left in the afternoon and then i realized that it was going to be much quieter with out him and i was going to miss him dearly. When Andrew got home that night he introduced me to a show called arrested development and i love it, i am currently on episode 16 just in case you were wondering.
Wednesday June 17th:
Mwahaha i slept in till 1:30 in the p.m. and then i walked to the local library which was very small and i got a book on DC so i could figure out the things that i want to see.
Thursday June 18th:
Once again i slept in but only till 11:30 this time then i hung out with Johnny who was determined to entertain me some how so he decided to take me and the boys to the Iwo Jima memorial in the pouring rain, this was a very good adventure and this also became my favorite memorial. When we got back James who is the oldest child of Johnny and Andrea decided that he wanted to play with me, so we watched some stoybooks that were turned into movies for a while, then we colored and played the alphabet game. It was a good couple of hours.
Friday June 19th:
Since i am visiting Shiloh who is one of the greatest shoppers of all time, we went to the mall where she took me in to her favorite european store, H&M, and well, i fell in love with it, sadly i only got two things and i wish i got more but oh well. Then we went to blockbuster and rented Iron Man, which i didn't really know much about, i knew he was some sort of super hero but that was it and i can now say i know more and i recomend this film.
End of week one.
Stay tuned to hear about the rest of my adventure!

Also i find it kind of rude when people start calling me the deased one or the illness and they won't let me do anything because i might contaminate something which will cause someone to die. Really though? Is that what is going to happen? I am going to go into the kitchen to get a glass of water and i will cough and now whoever happens to enter the kitchen next will slowly die???? Yep, i think you are right, that is what will happen.
that is the end of my swine flu rant.
thanks to all of you who don't do that and a super thanks to those that have brought me things to make me feel better such as smoothies or juice you are awesome :]

I love people who are like Chance, he reminds me of child because they are so simple minded and loving and the appreciate everything, he's also like puppies that's full of energy and fun and it's really hard to get bored around him which is a good thing. Thanks for the entertainment i quite enjoy it.
I love people like Kevin, sure he can creep you out sometimes because you can't tell if he is joking or serious but over all, he is one of the coolest people i have ever met because he is nothing like anyone else, he is his own person and i love it. He also comes up with the coolest and weirdest things, for example, the ultimate nerd shirt and he enjoys the strange questions that i come up with and that makes me a happy camper. Keep pacing Kevin!
I love people like Clark and Carlin, even though i am not really close to them any more they still give me hugs and send a smile my way and when i am feeling down they come and sit with me until i tell them what's wrong and they help me work through it. I love them with all of my heart.
I love people like Daniel Rollo, he has a clean sense of humor, he is crazy random, he is nice to everyone and he is super talented in the music department. He will be dearly missed next year.
I love people like Derek, sure he wouldn't hug me for like 2 years and i drove the poor boy crazy but he is the nicest person in the world and he has standards that he sticks to, there is no bending the rules for him and that's impressive. I love my open-minded work buddy.
I love people like Eric, he is the father i never had, he is there for me 100 percent of the time, he is protective, caring and loving and i know he would do anything for me. He asks me how i am doing almost everyday and each time he asks, it is sincere and that means a lot. I can't begin to thank him enough for how much he has done for me, he has been my life saver.
I love people like Jace, i don't really talk to him but i love him because he does something hardly anyone else in this world would do and that is take people where they need to go, it doesn't matter how well he knows them or if where they are going is on his way he just does it and it is the coolest thing in the world. Thanks for the ride.
I love people like Jenni, she volunteers for everything and she makes sure things get done. She is also a trooper, she can take on anything weather it be getting stung by a jellyfish or putting a dance together hours before it starts. Walden won't be the same with out her.
I love people like Lexie, she tells it how it is, and sure sometimes she is too blunt but it is far better then beating around the bush. Thanks for keeping it real.
I love people like Maren, she cares more about everyone then anyone i have ever met. She never says anything bad about anyone and no one says anything bad about her. She knows how to make people feel comfortable and open up and be themselves. She knows how to have a good time and how to write a good story. She will go far in life and i will always remember and love her as well as all the good times we have shared.
I love people like Tyler, he is insanely smart and he stands up for what he believes in, when he wants something to change, he makes it happen, or tries to anyways. He is also some one you can go to if you need a hug, help or both. Mr. T.C. is a crazy cat and i enjoy him.
I love people who are truly in love and happy with each other, like my siblings and their spouses. They would do anything to make the other one happy, they work hard at keeping a good relationship and they truly appreciate each other. I think more people should have a love like theirs. I am jealous.
So, how was that for a happy blog?
P.S. i need to get rid of my cat because she is an outside cat and people are complaining about her, which makes me angry because she isn't doing anything, they are just mad she is there, and so i have to find her a home asap or she will have to go to the pound and then if no one adopts her she will get put down! so if you can love her and take care of her i will love you forever!!

But really if you think about it, you will never need to be able to run and jump over things that are half your size and not only that but also being super speedy at the whole thing. Like really guys what on earth were you thinking? Maybe they thought that they were going to stick a bunch of people in the forest and who ever got out the fastest won 40 virgins.. oh wait that's when you die if you are a Muslim. So i really have no idea what this whole thing is about.
