Look out ESPN

Got up and went tutoring today. I helped the kids write about the third day of Christmas they are writing a page for each day until the 25. All we did in my geography class was review, I was bored. Had lunch with the baseball boys, Stoltzy, and Coach T. It was enjoyable as always, but even better thanks to the tastiness of cafeteria taco dip, mmm mmm. After lunch I ordered and organized pictures for a photo journal I have to make. Then Ashley and I went to buy supplies and pick up my pictures. I came back here and chilled for the afternoon watching me some ESPN and hanging out with Chelsea and Nikkie. I got to announce the first game tonight it was exciting and I am a pro I can see myself on ESPN any day now. Our game on the other hand was not so thrilling. We lost by 30 to a mediocore team, not impressive. We were just off and they were raining threes like nothing. I started and played a lot, finishing with 4 points and a few marks in all the other categories. Coach Thomas was making me laugh in the 2nd half. I was out for awhile because we were losing by a lot so he kept giving me crap about Finchum, saying my husband was here. He is determined that we are going to get married and have a kid and name it after him. Never gonna happen. After the game we all ate pizza in the cafeteria. We sat around and talked to Bridgett, Ryan, and Mary, until our ever so early 11:00 curfew. I came back here plannning on going to my room but my friend Brittany is here from last year so I am just now getting in, oops. We were just talking in the hallway, so I'm good. I can smell myself and that's not good, shower needs me.

Maker of the Snowflakes

I took two tests today. A literature test which cramped my hand but was easy and a computers test I was not so sure about. I lost my disk with all my notes on it somehow so I had to wing it. Oh well I will survive. I found out that I got a 98% on my psych test though which is awesome. I got out of each class early today and throughly enjoyed it everytime. Spent time in Coach Wilson's office after class that is until Creepy Finchum boy showed up and we ditched her. She was not appreciative of that:) Practice tonight wasn't bad, we didn't actually run any sprints now that I think of it. That is definately a first for this year. We as the sophomores spent a lot of time laughing and just kind of messing around while our freshman kept getting yelled at for not knowing plays and screwing up. I don't know I enjoyed it, it was nice to relax and enjoy playing. Coach Thomas was back to his crazy self today giving me a hard time all practice just like usual. Weird thing is though he got sick on the exact same trip last year after eating at the exact same place, should have learned. After a light dinner I met Chels in the lab and we did homework. I successly plotted and tracked 12 hurricanes for geography class, only 2 more to go. Then we met the twins Ben, and Alex to go hang out at Steak N' Shake. We had a lot of fun like always. Came back here and decorated Christmas ornaments for a tree we are putting up in the lobby. Everyone in our entire dorm, boys and girls, had to make one it was kinda cool and very Christmasy:) We also cut out snowflakes, I made a whole blizzard. I have a crazy talent for snow flakes.Tomorrow we are hanging everything up. Well it is already past my bedtime and I have a game tomorrow, so bye.

I don't really like this day. It is sad and a little confusing at the same time. Today marks three years since I last saw Scott. Somedays that seems like forever ago sometimes it seems like a second ago. I don't get how I can't remember what happened yesterday but I can remember everything that happend on this day 3 years ago. I especially don't get this because I didn't know he was going to die how did my memory know to log all those details away. I just don't know, but I do know I miss him a lot and though it may get easier it never gets better. I made it to tutoring on time today, we read a story about a bear, bird, and tadpole, and it was kinda funny. I didn't do much in my geography class, learned about rocks how exciting. Lunch was dull and I spent the entire afternoon in my bed until the bus left. I just didn't feel like doing anything. I did talk to Kelsey on the phone for awhile though. Our game tonight was alright I guess, but we lost. We didn't play terrible but we couldn't make shots at all. I think I missed the rim completely on 3 of mine. I didn't score at all. Oh well I am over it. Dinner was an adventure Ashley and I ate with Coach Thomas and were entertained by some good stories and conversation. He was cracking me up all night long. That is until we got back here and I see him hanging his head out his truck puking. Yummy. We took care of him got him cleaned up and sent him on his way. Hopefully he made it home okay. Well I have two tests tomorrow and need my rest, so that's all folks.

It's Tuesday, Today I know that

My morning got off to a much better start today. Began with a little waffle breakfast then off to lit class for only 15 minutes that was nice. Spent my free time in Coach Thomas' class with Ashley shooting the breeze. Nothing like some good bonding. Then it was off to computers which was pretty nonplussing today. Lunch was a delightful slice of Spinach,Bacon,Chicken pizza. The cafeteria makes a mean chicken pizza. My pysch test went suprisingly well today or at least I think. I found myself knowing most of the answers and being familiar with the terms which is shocking for one of Mrs. Knopps tests. Hopefully my grade reflects this wisdom. Since I got out of class once I was done with my class I hung out and talked to Coach Wilson in my free time. After a light relaxation it was off to practice. It wasn't bad considering we play tomorrow, but we did run alot for the day before a game. My knee paid for it though it has been bothering me ever since we came back from break. Trainer Joe says I have something with a really long name, but it's like tendonitis, kinda painful. I think once my shoulder went my whole body felt like it needed to follow suit I am not appreciating it. After practice I went with Amber and the girls to Jay's game in Rochester. They lost the game but we talked life and got a lot of issues solved and confronted, which I have to say feels good. But now I must go to bed.

What day is it?

So my day got off to a rough start. I rolled over this morning to discover it was 9:00, I tutor at 8:30. I had reset my clock in pm after plugging it back in, needless to say the alarm then did not work correctly. I was really struggling this morning. I could not for the life of me decifer what day it was, what time it really was, or what classes I needed to go to. After much deliberating I decided that I had class at 10 so after calling the teacher I work for and apoligizing I plugged in my hair straightner and decided to sleep a little more, setting my phone alarm for 9:35 Next time I roll over and look at the clock it is 9:45 I apparently did not hit save on my phone alarm. I then thought I would hurry and straighten my hair and run to class. Only all I did was plug in my straightner I neglected to actually turn it on. I made it to class right on time and a little frazzled, but I made it. I went to a quick non tasty lunch. Then went to sleep until practice I was dead tired for some reason and had a slight cold from practicing in the arctic. I woke up feeling dramatically less stressed and a lot better. Practice was decent, lots of running which is always a thrill. We decided today that Coach Thomas looks like Woody off of Toy Story when he makes a certain face which to me is kinda creepy because I have a that exact look on my Toy Story poster. Dinner soon followed which was not good either then it was off to the homework races. I had a drama paper to do for tomorrow and 3 pyschology study guides to do for my test and you better believe I mastered them all, with some spare time for a Wal-Mart run. Go me!

Practicing in the Arctic

Alright here goes the weekend round up. The wedding Saturday was very nice. It was a very pretty wedding and reception. It was nice to get to hang out with some old friends and just have fun dancing and talking. Creepy Finchum boy followed me around the whole time he was there but to my pleasure he left before the dancing started, so no slow dance:)I got to spend some time with Jay, Amber, and the girls too which I enjoyed. I haven't seen them much this year and it was good to catch up. We left the reception after one we helped clean up and tear everything down it was thrilling. I got to bed sometime after 2 and woke up at 8 this morning to go to church with Matt. I was tired but it was a good service and once again great to see friends from home. I then went to Sunday school because Toby was teaching and he wanted me to. I really miss him when I am at school. I told Matt goodbye went home and ate lunch then headed back here. I actually put away everything I took home which is a first for me, it usually sits on the floor for a while. Practice was alright, the gym was freezing cold, I swear I got frost bite. The heat definately was not on, but don't worry we did plenty of running to warm up...except not even that worked. After practice I walked with the twins to Jimmy Johns for dinner, yum yum. Night entertainment consisted of Brother's & Sister's at Mary's such a joyous occasion. Well I need to go catch up on some sleep so I am outskie!

Tree Shopping

What has my day consisted of? Well let me think. Justin and Grandpa went and got my car from the Browns this morning. It apparently started without problem and I am retarded, my bad. Got up this morning to go cut down our Christmas tree. We picked the first tree...Mom made us ride the tractor around the whole farm. Wanted to give Kaho the full experience, we spent the free time making fun of Mom. Came back here and watched Home Alone, a definate classic. I also did some of my homework, the assignment that involved the least effort. Then I went to Darci's to try on some shoes for the wedding tomorrow. High heels and me could be a disaster. Sat and talked to Aunt Kathy for awhile. Ran home for dinner and then went out to watch Brent's basketball games. They won both their games it was thrilling:)A lot of kids from my class were there so it was nice to sit and talk to them. Especially Matt and Ryan, those boys crack me up and I miss them at school. They are good friends to still have around. After the game I came home and ate a pizza and it was good. Then I watched the Santa Claus 3 with Justin and Kaho I am always up for a Christmas movie. Tomorrow I have Michelle and Drew's wedding which could be very interesting, here's to hoping it's at least not too cold.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everybody, even though I saw most of you today:) We had a good day I always love the Holidays getting to spend time with my family and just hang out is always a blessing. We did have an exciting time today though as my car broke down at the Browns and we all traveled Griswold style home in Kale's car as the entire family laughed at us from inside. As it is Thanksgiving though I think a little thankfullness is in order.

I am thankful for my family and the support we give each other.
Spending time with my cousins reliving our childhoods and laughing at each other.
My uncles who I can always count on for a big hug and to make me smile.
My aunts who are some of the strongest women I know.
The new babies in our family who melt my heart.
My brothers, whom, even though they annoy me, make my life complete.
My grandparents who support me no matter what.
My friends who take me as I am.
My Coaches who everyday try to make me the best person I can be.
College and the chance to make something of myself.
Playing sports and the outlet they bring into my life.
My church and the safe haven it is no matter what.
The people who for some reason care about me and are great examples in my life.
The fact that I always have enough food, clothes, and warmth to not need.
The chance to help others.
Hurt because it reminds us of all we've lost and that we need God.
And most of all love, because without it we are nothing and for it we are saved.

Break Time

I am tired yet I am still awake. Makes sense doesn't it. I could not get to sleep last night, I don't really know why because my body was exhausted and aching. Tutoring this morning was good I helped the kid do Thanksgiving projects and we had a lot of fun. I did nothing in Geography today just chilled. My teacher is also our basketball announcer he kept telling us how bad he felt, like it was his fault. We got a lot of that today from the teachers, I think they feel bad because they know first hand how out of control some of our kids are. Hung out in Coach Wilson's office for a little while. Coach Thomas was still down, but honestly they haven't shown much confidence in us so it is almost nice to see them so upset for us. Everyone was pretty subdued today due to the game, lack of sleep, and run down bodies. There could be some big repercussions because of what went on last night, including us not being allowed to have home games. Lunch was alright but we did have my ever favorite Chedderwurst. Then after some quick goodbyes and packing I headed to Morton. I went to see Sam, Josh, and Clay since they aren't coming to Thanksgiving. I missed them so I am glad I got to spend some of my free time with them. The rest of the night was spent with Grandma. I got my haircut, put up her Christmas tree and decorated it, took her to Pekin, did some shopping, and ate at Applebees. I must say my tree decorating skills are top nothch I am pretty much an Elf. I am staying at Grandma's tonight and am now forcing myself to go to bed. Hurray for Thanksgiving!

Idiot Crowd

I can't even remember what happened today the night has just been too frustrating and let me tell you why. We had a game tonight against the best team in our region. All week long all Coach has told us is how good they are and how we really don't stand a chance. She told us before the game that if we played 110% we could maybe stay within ten. Flash forward to the game. We played awesome, we were tied pretty much the entire game. Our defense was great and we were hitting shots. Everyone was playing really hard on the floor. We go into over time. At the end of over time we hit a last second shot off a steal to go up one. Our stupid crowd runs on the floor even though there are .7 seconds left. The crowd gets a technical and Lakeland shoots freethrows to win. We were all really upset, Coach and Coach were yelling at the crowd. Coach Thomas punched the fridge and dented it, Coach Wilson was livid. The crowd cost us a huge region upset because of their stupidity. We think we got the kids on tape so they will be kicked out of all sporting events and some might get kicked out of school. I played pretty much the whole game scored 8, had about 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and four steals. I got smoked in the right shoulder and had to come out for a few minutes because my arm went numb, it just hurts now as does the rest of my body. After some angry moping in the locker room we went to eat at the caf with Percella, Tamar, and little Tamar. Babies always make things better. Then Nikkie and I went over to Ben's to hang out and watch the Illinois game. Six a.m. practice has been cancelled what a lovely Thanksgiving gift.

Ryan's Home!

I haven't posted because the internet has been down all weekend. Saturday we had a game we lost in OT after being up 20 points at one wasn't pretty. Chelsea got hurt they thought she broke her leg, the ambulence came and got her. Luckily we found out it is just really sprained. Saturday night was spent taking care of Chels and hanging out and playing SIMS, good times. Sunday was spent working for a food drive at Walmart collecting food for the local food pantry. It is part of our Honors project. We collected enough items to fill a 12 passenger van, it was cold out but it was awesome to get that much stuff. Sunday night I went home to Church to see Ryan. He had just flown in that morning. We hung out at youth group, it was nice to see the kids and Brent. Then Ryan and I hung out at Lys' with her and Ryker for awhile. It was great just being able to hang out with Ryan I missed him a lot. Today has been okay. Tutoring and class were decent nothing thrilling. Practice was crap today though just for the mere fact that Coach was flipping out about everything. I think it is good we are getting a small break from each other everyone is on edge. Tonight we went over to Ben's room to hang out, Alex and Beal came over too. It was a lot of fun minus the fact that Finchy is Ben's suitemate and invited himself over and to Steak N' Shake with us too. We could have done without that. The rest of the night was spent chilling with Mary on duty always enjoyable. It is 12:15 I still need to shower...

Friday Fun

I just got back from Atlanta it was a grand old time. I went to Jay and Amber's to help Michelle with some wedding stuff. We made 420 name charms for toast glasses. I went to see Paige she broke her elbow this week and is in a bright pink cast from shoulder to fingers. It should look lovely with her flower girl dress next weekend. The day was alright. Tutoring was good this morning, we played a word match game it was fun. I took another test in Geography this morning I was done in ten minutes, it was a struggle. Then I went and hung out in Coach T's office we popped all his birthday balloons and threw them away, they've only been in there for a month. I visited Student Services afterword to see my favorite ladies got some nice hugs. I went to the lunch room then for two hours, I enjoyed some light conversation with my beloved Stoltzy, Coach T and the baseball boys. I then had a nice afternoon rest before practice. Practice was alright I guess, Coach has just been bugging me all week she has been riding me about nothing and it's just getting frustrating. At least I had Tony there to make me smile sometimes. Dinner was good, I had some roast beef and ketchup tasty. Then it was off to ATL. Now it is off to bed for my 10:00 am. bus.

On the Go

Crackers with PB & J are yumalicious, the perfect after swimming snack. I had a pretty on the go day. Started off with some class, how I love class. I was a little hyper all day. We finished reading a play, it was actually enjoyalbel Tennessee Williams, I even read some out loud in class. We got out early so Ashley and I went to visit Coach T for some nice morning conversation and laughter. Too much fun. Computers class didn't last long and I payed attention for none of it, oh the model student I am. The teacher asked us if we had had a lot of sugar, the answer was definately yes. Lunch was quick and uneventful two grilled cheeses and out. Another great psychology day class was cancelled so GLORIOUS! Spent my free time turning in my time sheets and running errands, and visiting Mr. Grunder to beg him to announce our basketball games. Then we went to chill in Coach T's office for awhile, he throughly enjoys our company no matter what he says. Practice was meh, I keep getting put on the bad team in scrimmage which is frustrating but I am trying. We ran a lot once again for stupid freshman decisions of the court. They are killing me. Then Chelsea and I went to the Rec with Coach Wilson to help put on a basketball clinic for grade school girls. It was a lot of fun playing with and teaching the kids. Came back here to a nice suprise, Percella and her son were here. He is soooo cute we were eating him up. I decided to go swimming with the softball team tonight which was delightful but I am kinda tired now, this could be a good thing maybe I'll get some sleep.

No School!

I messed up my computer some how it is going psycho. Even though I had no class today I still had to get up at 8 to go tutor. The kids were a little crazy but we made it through. I came back and took a quick rest before practice at 11:30. Practice was okay I just haven't been feeling it this week, it feels like we are playing in slow motion. Don't worry we still got plenty of running in. When practice got out the caf was closed so we went to Steak 'N' Shake for lunch, mmmsies. We then proceeded to go to the laudromat, first time ever. Ashley had a lot of blankets to wash so apparently this was easier and since none of us can go any where alone all five of us went. We hung out and made signs for our Honor's Project food drive on Sunday. Came back here and ended up in Student Services for a while talking to our favorite people and playing with Coach Thomas' little grandson. It was fancy Thanksgiving dinner night in the cafeteria it was pretty yummy. Ashley and I went on a dinner date with Coach Thomas and Ryan because they asked us too. I love them and it was an entertaining meal, I laughed so hard I was crying. After a quick shower we all went to watch the boys basketball game, it was packed. Alex and our friend Beal from LincolnLand came to watch with us. We won the game by alot and then went to Taco/Chicken to chill for awhile. That is the events of my day, the end.

Movie Night

I have come to the conclusion that I eat entirely too much. I always have to have something in my mouth and if I don't I chew my nails. I have issues:) Had an alright day today. Started off the morning with a visit to Coach Thomas it was neccessary I hadn't seen him in three days. We enjoyed some good story time. Classes weren't too bad today either. We read the "Glass Menagerie" in Lit I kinda like it. Only had a few projects in Computers class. Lunch was nasty and the normal crew wasn't there. Pysch was even good today we didn't take any notes it was all discussion and we got out early, awesome. Practice was okay. We didn't touch a ball the whole time, we just ran, jumped rope, did lane slides, and leg lifts. Still it only last one hour so it wasn't bad. After practice we hung out in the locker room for a while bonding with the freshman then we ate dinner with them. We are trying to get closer I can't help but think that will help us on the floor as well. Then Kelsey came down and we went to BYOB at the movies. We saw Fred Claus, it was no Elf but it was still good and the popcorn...magnificent. When the movie got over we just hung out and ate some pomegrante delightful. No class tomorrow funny thing is I have more to do on my off day than I would a day at class.

Late Start

This is probably going to be unorganized so prepare yourselves. My alarm did not go off this morning, great start. I woke up ten minutes after I usually leave for tutoring, I was in a hurry and running behind. Luckily I can operate under pressure I was less then five minutes late and no one noticed. My class today was review, no sweat. Went to lunch in a monsoon it POURED here today my pants were soaked through. Lunch was cold but fun my usuall crew was back for entertainment. Practice today was a joke. Coach Wilson couldn't talk over a squeak and Coach Thomas was home with Ryan who was sick. Our freshman thought that just because Coach couldn't yell we didn't have to work hard...wrong. We will definately pay for it tomorrow. Two of my teamates got into a fight partly words partly physical. It was a frustrating waste of two hours. Spent some time in the library tonight just because my friends went, I sat and messaged some friends on the computer and I read my play for class. Ash and I called Coach T we figured we ought to bounce our days off each other because he got so worked up when we didn't last time. Hopefully he'll be back tomorrow, he puts some laughter into any day. Hung out with Mary tonight don't worry she loves our company:)

Lovely Sundays

My day has been pretty....well nothing...and that is exactly the beauty of it. I think I rolled out of bed around 11:30 today maybe because I didn't go to bed until after 2 but hey what can you do. Went to lunch with Ashley it was the first time she has been out of the dorm to eat in about a week. We are making big steps back into the healthy world:) Lunch was alright, I downed me some pancakes. Then we went to Walmart where I proceeded to purchase myself four more pomegrantes, I cannot fight my temptation they are too good. Came back a few minutes into the Packers game of which they were leading. The Pack then continued on to destroy the Vikings by way of some glorious play by Brett Favre. Ah the beauty of yet another 300 yard game and a lovely 8-1 record. Did some laundry in between there stupid dryers I used didn't work so I had to pay double to get my clothes dry, ugh. Still had some time before dinner so I made the lovely slide writing thing you shall enjoy below. Dinner was nast, I had a brat but I think it was old. Sat with my friend Kyle, yet another baseball player, and enjoyed his company. I am liking hanging out with those guys this year it is nice having new friends. Tonight was spent at Ashley's dorm while she was on duty watching the ever engrossing Brothers & Sisters, this weeks episode was especially dramatic and especially entertaining. You know what I really need to do? Shower...she gone.

Two in a Row

It's one in the morning I am still up. My sleep patterns need some work. Our game today went well we won again but only by 8 this time. Still a win is a win anyway around it. I started and played a lot. I even had to be the point guard for awhile. I did well handling the ball and only had one turnover the entire game. I ended up with four points and a handful of steals, rebounds, and assists. I was feeling defense today. Our scorekeeper who happens to be my geography teacher was giving me crap before the game. He says I must like pain because I am always on the ground and diving head first after the ball. I have fun doing it, my body pays for it later though. I am pretty sore tonight. The night was spent chilling. One of my teamates from last year, Kellie, came over and so did one of our friends from Lincoln Lands team. We hung out in my room being dumb and watching Love & Basketball good times. We ate my second pomegrante it was delicious. Then I had Nikkie take me to Jimmy John's for some lovely late night dinner. Oh slim 5's are sooo delightful. The rest of the night I have spent relaxing watching a little Remember the Titans and talking to people on the phone. I know the joys of my life. The funny thing is I spent an hour and a half on the phone with Ashley who just lives across the street, we are dorks. Maybe if she wasn't infected with sick germs I would visit in person. No practice tomorrow, hopefully it's a non strenous day.

We Win

Got up this morning to go to class for all of 10 minutes. I had to take a quiz an open notes one at that talk about a waste of my time. I spent most of the morning in Coach Wilson's office watching Ali while Coach was in class. Oh the joys of beating a 7 year old in tic-tac-toe. Lunch was uneventful today I didn't get to eat until late so I missed my normal crowd. The afternoon was spent hanging out with Nikkie and Chelsea. We went to Walmart and then hung out at Chels house making a warm up CD for our game. We actually won our game, not just won but really won a 40 point victory. I think we scored more tonight than we did in our first three games. It feels good to finally get into the winners column. Coach T was telling me today that we aren't the worst team in the nation some team lost a game 104-13 and I think a win tonight moved us out of the bottom ten at least:) I started and played decent once again bringing in more rebounds and assists than points, but whatever works. We play again tomorrow lets see if we can make it 2 in row. After the game we had pizza in the cafeteria it wasn't good but I had fun haning with the team. Then I went and played in the student center with Ryan for awhile, I kicked his butt in shootout. I know another victory over a small child, I am soo awesome. Came back here and hung out with Mary for the rest of the night, she cracks me up. I even made a turkey for one of our bulletin boards...I know my talents are endless. By the way I got your card today Aunt Lynn Thank you!

Pomegrante Power

I need to go to bed but I am not, I procrastinate everything. Classes today weren't too bad. I got out of Lit early so I went and lifted in Coach T's class so I don't have to get up early tomorrow and lift. Smart thinking on my part, I am lucky that guy loves me:) I took a test in computers I was a little confused, hopefully not too confused. I got out early in that too which allowed me a nice leisurely lunch with the baseball coaching staff, interesting. Pyschology class resumed today and it was terrible as always, good times. Practice wasn't too bad tonight, but we still did a lot of running for the day before a game. Coach Thomas has found this tackling dummy thing and he brings it up to practice and beats us with it the whole time. He is enjoying that a little too much, but I guess it will make us better. After practice I ate dinner with the Freshman, I like them off the court they are funny girls. A quick shower after dinner and then it was off to Coach Wilson's house with Chelsea. We watched Ali tonight while Coach was at confrences. We had a lot of fun eating Halloween candy, playing Spongebob Life, and laughing with Ali. The confrence took about 45 minutes we stayed for 2 hours, once they let us in the house we never leave. We did steal a penguin statue out of Coaches yard though and are holding it ransom, well we will be when she finds out we took it, haha. Came back here and gutted my first pomegrante, it was quite the ordeal a couple kids came up to watch. No one knows what they are so my friends were all trying it. It was amazingly tastfully awesome. First home game tomorrow maybe we could win for once, I am not holding my breath. And now it is time for bed.

Good Friends

I got to learn about bats this morning wtih 2nd graders. It was interesting, I really love my tutoring job. The best part is I even get paid to do it. I kinda had a bad morning, I had a lot on my mind and was still just feeling a little run over. Geography class drug on but I got over it. I used my lunch hour to release my inner crap. It got me all upset but I felt better after I did it. When all my friends left Coach Thomas came over and sat with me, he didn't say anything he just sat with me and ate his lunch. I don't know why but it made me feel better having him there. When he left he told me to cheer up and stop looking so sad because we are going to be alright and life is good. He is right and a good friend. After lunch I came to my room and sat by myself for two hours doing nothing, no tv, no music, nothing. I just sat in my bed and thought things through and let stuff go. It was really helpful, Coach Wilson is always telling me to do that and today I actually did. She was also right, good thing I have Coaches who care. Practice tonight was alright but kinda hard. We did a lot of running, that always sucks, but I guess it only helps in the long run. Everything was full court and tiring but I feel good after a hard workout. When practice got over I went and got Ashley some food and drinks from the cafteria, she has the flu so I have to pick up stuff for her. I then dropped it off, from outside the room I was not entering her germ imporiam. Then I went to dinner with Chelsea at Rusty's it was a delightful dinner date:) Mom came down tonight as well we ran through Walmart and got some stuff, most importantly POMEGRANTE'S which are finally in season. I cannot wait to eat mine. The rest of the night has been spent cleaning my room, putting up laundry, and doing joy!

Right now I am a little I don't know...angry, frustrated, confused, and stressed. Not going to write about it on here but it just sucks. By the way this is post 300, crazy. Onto a non-overwhelming story, my day. I didn't have anything to do this morning before class so for the first time in months I actually got ready. My morning class was okay we are doing drama now so we are reading and interpreting plays which can be interesting. Computers was pretty non demanding as well so I enjoyed that. The greatest gift of the semester occured today, my psych class was cancelled. I can't even begin to describe how happy that made me. In my spare time I hung out in Coach Wilson's office with the teamates. I am sure everyone who has an office in her hallway loves us, haha. Then I went with Coach and Chels to shoot in the gym. I ended up shooting then doing drills and running for 15 minutes with 2 of our girls who had makeup practices. We didn't have practice today, it was nice to be off, but I think that will make tomorrow even worse. I chilled in my room and watched Cash Cab until dinner I learned a lot:) Coach Thomas called me at dinner he hadn't seen or talked to me all day and was apparently missing me. He was a little distressed without hearing my voice all day I guess. I love him. After dinner I went to Ash's room for a while and hung out she has been sick so I dropped off her work and filled her in on the day, always exciting. Tonight Nikkie and I got hungry so we went to Walmart for food. Good news that just came in. My teammate Percella had her baby around 9:30 tonight after about 26 hours of labor. She had a little boy, Tamar Jr., c-section but both are doing good. We are glad he is finally here. Okay well I need to do some homework.

Hyper DAy

Oh the adventures of my day. Tutoring went well this morning I just like spending the time in the classroom the kids brighten my day. My class of the day was class, the teacher has found out after recent tests that I don't really read the questions. I miss at least one a test because I just write down anwswers...oops. Then I went to lunch, for two hours:) I enjoy cafeteria conversation we have a good time, hanging out. In the two hours I was there I talked to Stoltzy, Coach T, the entire baseball team, and the student services ladies it was grandly. Came back and took a nice relaxation before the bus left. Our bus ride there was a funny one Chels, Nik, Ash, Cas, and I were all a little hyper and were laughing really hard the whole time. I don't know why but we were a bit rambunctous. Onto our game, oh our game. I started again but didn't play too overwhelmingly well one did. We lost to a team by 2o that wasn't even good. It was frustrating but I just keep hoping it will get better. We got Taco Bell for dinner it was awesome ohh I love me some Chalupee's as Grandma would say:) Can I just take a moment to tell you how out of control Coach Thomas was tonight. Oh my goodness. He made fun of me all night long, let me correct that, all day long. He called Finchy twice on the way home to give me a hard time to the point where Finchy met us at the gym when we got back. The man is crazy I did have him a little worried though at one point because I asked him why he didn't like me. So for the rest of the night whenever he made a crack about me he'd smile and say I love you. He's ridiculous. When we got back I ran with Ash to Walmart to get some medicine cause she's I am sitting here neglecting the shower. I must give in.

Time's A'Changin

Time changes are confusing, it's thrown my whole day off. After a not good brunchel Ashley the twins and I came back to my room to hang out. We had rented We Are Marshall and were going to watch it. Well I forgot that my Packers were on so after realigning my priorites I ended up skipping the movie which they watched in my room and watched Brett Favre go to work in the twins room. I had already seen the movie so I missed nothing and gained a glorious second half comeback by the ever awesome 7-1 Packers. Go Pack Go. The rest of the afternoon I cleaned my room up, by the end of the week it is a pigsty. I also had to do my laudry three loads in just one week, I am out of control. Practice tonight was pretty non strenous and I was loving it. We did a lot of shooting drills and ran through offenses. Coach put stats up on the locker room board and I led in three of four categories, rebounds, shooting percentage, and assists. I was only lacking in turnovers, but that will improve. Still I was suprised to be leading anything, it felt nice. We had fun joking and just enjoying playing ball. We had lifting after practice and once it was over I had to run to my room and eat real quick before the ever awesome Brothers & Sisters came on. This leads me to an always favorite Finchy story. Ashley was on duty so we watched it in the lobby, he randomly came over. He sat on the edge of my chair the entire show and kept moving closer and closer to me, Ashley said he kept putting his arm behind me on the chair. He walked me back to my dorm and asked me if we could sit together at Michelle and Drew's wedding I told him I have a lot of friends from home coming and would sit with them. I just don't know when he'll stop trying, I am waiting. We play in Kewannee tomorrow so I need to get some sleep.

Roadtrip Return

Our first overnighter was a lot of fun but in a basketball sense not real successful. The ride down was a long one, we watched movies, colored, and played with the kids. Our first game was not pretty at all we lost 92-50 and that was with a decent second half, I can't even begin to describe the ugliness of the first half. I started and played quite a bit but didn't do overwhelmingly well, 4 points, a few assists, and five or so rebouds. The night back at the hotel was fun. We ordered pizza hut and hung out in the lobby. Chels, Nik, Cas, Ash, Carla and I got conjoining rooms and had a good time. Woke up in the morning to watch the kids swim and eat some breakfast. Then spent some time watching ESPN with Coach Thomas. We checked out about 12 and didn't leave until 1 we and the lobby were good friends. Our second game of the weekend was an improvement which at this point is all we could ask for. We played a lot better and only lost by fifteen. I actually played pretty well and almost all of the game, scored only 4 points again but accounted for most of our assists and a lot of rebounds. I also ripped off half my big toenail, got smoked in the shin, and just over all got a little beat up. But improvement is good. We ate at Subway afterword which was good. Coach Thomas was going at me again, we were going back and forth between tables and he was making fun of me, these people kept staring at him like he was some big jerk. We then had to explain to them that it was okay that's just how we are, it's a weird relationship but it works. He was all over me all weekend first thing in the morning to last thing at night. The team decided they like this though when he bothers me all the time he leaves them alone. I could care less I love the guy anyway around it. I was the child wrangler the whole way home two kids on my lap for three hours, kids are funny. We got back here and were starving so we hit up some Taco/Chicken to eat while we watched Reign Over Me. Good movie but really sad, still decent flick decent weekend.

Pre-overnighter baby

I am attempting to go over my notes for a geography test is not working so well. My friends and Fresh Prince are distracting. Morning practice was non challenging just run throughs, breakfast was non good, and class was non interesting. I did get out 20 minutes early from psych though which was the most amazing gift ever. Coach Thomas was driving me nuts all day long. Everytime I would walk by he would ask me if I knew the plays yet. We were fighting about the difference between knowing and remembering something. At practice everytime I would do something right or wrong he was riding me. I then engaged in a highly entertaing back and forth dialog for about an hour with him during practice. Even when he's dumb he makes me smile. Practice was decent, our freshman are still struggling with the concept we like to call team, but hopefully this weekend will cause some progress. Ali and Ryan were pretty funny, they were loving us for some reason. I must have got 100 hugs today. They are so excited to go on the basketball trip tomorrow. I ate dinner with our freshman, I like them I just wish they could see what we see on the court. Then I came back here and chilled for a while accomplishing a lot of nothing and loving it. I walked to Jimmy John's with the twins when they got out of class and hung out. Softball was swimming too so I made a grand appearance there to see teamates:) We leave for a weekend trip to Freeport and Dixon. I love overnights so hopefully this turns out to be a fun weekend. I will be back Saturday night with an update.
