today was a very good day! i made a slew of matzah ball soup which my family loved and i downloaded so many awesome songs on itunes. i also talked to a lot of friends which makes me happy :-) and then i realized 2 more months till my birthday and liscense.

i feel like i'm really starting to become independent...

i love making lists of stuff to do and actually finishing everything and then eating a big bowl of rocky road ice cream.

alrighty, back to my spring break

i've been trying to update this thing the past couple days but i get distracted halfway into it or i'd have to go do my homework. so anywho, this past weekend was truly awesome. i left school at noon on friday and got some lunch with my mom. came home, packed more, and then went to temple. on the trip to orlando i sat with alex and we threw things at rachel and watched spiderman 2 =) i was roomies with rach, alex and kendall. we had services on friday night and came back and did some programs and such. saturday morning, woke up like 10 minutes before we had to be down for breakfast and my eyes were bloodshot from trying to get my contacts in. so then services and then mgm studios. mgm was really fun. i'm proud to say that i went on tower of terror with the help of rach, cantor, david and glenn. haha. so then on sunday we woke up earlyyyy and then we went to give kids the world which is such a truly amazing place. it's a resort for kids with life threatening illness to go with their families and have a week of just plain fun. it's completely free of charge and the families get tickets to theme parks. the village was so nice. there are villas for the families to stay in, ice cream parlor, castle used for arts and crafts, gingerbread house cafeteria, a carousel and so much more. there werent many families here then since i think that was the day they were all leaving but the kids that were there were just so adorable and precious. henry landworth (founder of give kids the world) is such an extraordinary person. all in all, it was such a great weekend!

monday: my interview. i really can't tell if it went good or badly but we wont find out if we're in until april which is also when jen finds out from cornell. she got into uf. i went to barnes and noble with kristen after school. i'm addicted to highlighting, hahaha.

today in cooking we made french cinnamon muffins and strawberry bananna smoothies. i was head chef but i dont know, they didnt seem very good. in algebra 2 i've been getting really good grades on my quizzes, yay! jen and i got home extremely early today and i took the most horrible nap of life. i had the worst dream. it was confirmation retreat weekend and we were leaving mgm and the bus had left me and a couple people so we start walking onto this little highway and someone runs up to us saying that there was an ex-con/murderer on the loose. so i start freaking out and running while the others are just walking and the murderer comes up and passes my friends and comes up to me. i'm crying and he starts gagging me. and then the friday before we had left i had confessed my love to some random guy and then he saw a slutty girl walk by and he chases and confesses his love to her. did i mention this was happening at the avenues? yeah...so, what a great dream. it was really scary though and i ran to my mom and told her and then i told d miz.

no school for me tomorrow! i'm going to tampa + orlando.

i think it's pretty cool that the superbowl is here minus the load of traffic and horrible weather. ok, time to finally go pack!

so back to school we go...

cooking, algebra 2, spanish 2, world history
i liked last semester a lot better i think.

lindsey is in cooking with me and today we explained menopause to these guys at our table and it was one of the funniest things i've heard in a while. algebra haha, i'm definitely scared of my teacher. spanish, i have the same teacher but she's changed a lot. she's definitely become strict and actually making us do our work! haha. last semester we all just slacked off and it was great. but this class is so different. none of the people from last semester are in it really. and then after that is sas which is practically non stop laughter.

monday, someone hit jen and i. i'd never been in an accident before.

oh, and i think i may be getting my bike ride on saturday!

my throat is killing me from all this acid reflux. i really need to go see a doctor

i don't want this break to end. winter break has been amazing... honestly... the best one ever. i love seeing all of my friends and such! meet the fockers last night with lauren and kristen which was lots of fun. i've also hung out with rach a bunch.

i really want to go on a bike ride. like a 10 mile ride like we'd do in amelia. any takers? mmmmm

i put metal in the microwave and now i know that it's NOT the greatest combination and sparks and fire come of it. oy to the vey.

thats it for now but i just had to say that if your ever bored i have to suggest either playing hearts online (i'm addicted!)or going through your parent's cd collections. i found some pretty awesome music tonight!

oh and be ready for a new years update!

i'm very excited for this break. i'm extremely sick of the repetitious events of my everyday life that i'd like to call school. so anywho these 2 weeks will do a kid goooooood.

tonight was a whole bunch of fun. wow. a to the l or adam and also kristen came home from school with me and we did some cooking and got ready for the party over here. lauren, joey, andrew, patrick and ashley came over. played twister, ate chicken wings and awesome punch and watched The Ring. ok, no matter how many times i watch that movie i am always terrified. it was a very good night with gag gifts galore!

this past weekend I went to the fabulous izzy's party which was cool. rachel picked me up and we went cruising around the bolles campus and then went over to isabella's. i got to see my favorite twin of life ellie!

i think I did pretty good on all my finals. i had one of them yesterday and three today. chemistry and English really mattered cuz they will decide if I get an A or a B. lets see how all goes tomorrow.

I'm tired but can't fall asleep. Today was rather eventful though. I went to school and did all that crazy stuff. I found out that I now have a B in Chemistry. Weiss went over classes we could be taking for the next 2 years and I decided that I would like to take AP Chemistry. Third period I did my English homework and talked to Jessica, Ali and Ross. We left during D Lunch. I talked to Kristen, Andrew, everyone else. I came home and slept for a little while and went to Dr Tillo's. I was really freaked out about the shots from what people said. And yes, they did hurt. But its over and I'm happy and like this whole numbness thing. Haha.

Only a week left till Winter Break. I'm not sure if I'm going anywhere yet because my sister really wants to go up to Ithaca, New York to visit Cornell. I hope we go cuz I love the Big Apple!

Yesterday was my last Jew school this year since I'm most likely not going next week because of finals. Cantor did yoga with us haha. Wow, it was really funny though because my rug squares wouldnt stay put. Izzle wasnt there but Rizzle was! In second hour we're doing this Partnership 2000 thing with Isreal that is actually pretty interesting. High schoolers from Isreal wrote the kids in my class letters and gave us presents and we wrote them back. I got a guy named Almog who's 14 and he sent me a Jewish Star and gelt. No idea how the gelt lasted in the however many hours flight though.

Ok, enough about me. How's your life going?

This winter is dedicated to learning how to walk in heels without falling. I'm sick of my jeans fraying at the ends and being short :-)

"We'll deal with tomorrow, tomorrow. But tonight, tonight will be magical."

Today was a lot better then yesterday in so many ways.

Hanukkah begins - Tuesday at sundown
Procedure - Thursday

Jennifer went to Subway during 2nd period today and brought me back Subway + chips! I definitely gave her and Mrs Jaxon big hugs.

Adam and I are having a very long conversation one day this weekend and I'm mucho looking forward to it.

Someone, anyone, come over tomorrow night since they're gone.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and you and you! I'm watching the parade right now. My family absolutely loves the balloons and floats. The moment Santa comes out just sets you into the holiday season which I'm absolutely in love with. I've always wanted to go to the parade and maybe if Jen goes up to Ithaca then we'll be able to go! Last year I remember how we drove all morning to Clearwater and I'm watching the parade with Jennifer in this little room with another girl named Paige. Since we were traveling there was no time to make the meal so Thanksgiving was on Christmas for us :-)

In honor of Thanksgiving:
I'm very thankful for all my friends - good and bad this year. I'm thankful for my family and everything they have given my the past 15 years. I'm thankful for my faith. I'm thankful to live in a great little town thats holding the Superbowl next year! I'm thankful for sweatshirts and sweatpants and Target. I'm thankful for sleeping until noon. I'm thankful for random hugs and kisses. I'm thankful for laughing. I'm thankful for seeing my family. Lastly, I'm thankful for you!

I'm so happy about this 4 day weekend except for the Chemistry Lab we have to do which I'm not too thrilled about.

Throw the turkey in the oven, crank up the Christmas tunes and goooooooo football!

It's been a pretty dreary day today. I woke up at 10 and Rachel called and we went over to Perkins to eat breakfast and she took me home. The rest of the day I spent lounging around the house, drinking hot chocolate, doing homework and watching the 7th Heaven Marathon on ABC Family. Pretty boring day. I'm glad that we have an upcomming 3 day week and that I dont have to travel anywhere for Thanksgiving :-)

Friday, had a couple people over for a spur of the moment thing. Kristen, Ashley and JP came over, talked for a while and went to Krispie Kreme. Kristen slept over. Saturday I ran about a million errands with my family but atleast I got to drive! We're redoing our kitchen so we had to go to a bunch of places on Phillips Highway and also went to the mall.

Oh yeah...I'm happy.

This weekend was ok. Just ok. On Friday Talia and I left during A Lunch and her brother took us to Tropical Smoothie and then to the Center. We were supposed to leave at 12 but the bus didnt come till 1:30! Delta, Talia and I walked to the gas station to stock up on food. We had to pick up the Gainseville kids and got to the convention late. There were services and then dinner and then we did group things/mixers. This kid Bryan came up with the greatest pickup line - "I gotta Goetz me some Amy" Haha. We stayed with the past president who is very wealthy. They had a touch screen remote control with HBO On Demand, Cinemax, STARZ, seriously...everything. And also an 18 month old daughter that would wake us up by screaming/laughing at 6 AM and a 6 year old son who is oh so adorable. Saturday had 3 services and some other stuff. That night all the kids went to this local ice skating/laser tag place. Today we got to shul and had services and had Einsteins Bagels!! We left around 12 and had to bring the Gainseville-ians home. The person in charge of us wouldnt let us stop anywhere to get snacks or drinks so all of us were pretty thirsty. We got home around 5 and brought Talia home.

I was talking to my dad earlier and he had said if we were to move again we'd look at Tampa. Seriously though, I'm in love with that city. I really think that after college I would like to move there but in my mind I'll probably just end up back here. My parents and sister were in Tampa over the weekend too but left Saturday. They visited USF and didnt like it. I kinda wish I was with them though just because I really like Tampa and didnt get to go around the city like I have before. It's so different from Jacksonville which is one reason why I like it so much.

There was a cruise ship in the harbour right by where our host family lives and it made me sad looking at it. Aah cruise memories!!

Ok well I want this week to be a good one!

It sucks getting up at 5:30 every morning for school and then waking up at 9 on a day that we have off. Anywho this week has been good. Get coffee, go to school, soccer, home.

I think I sleepwalked the other day. It was hillarious. I was taking a nap and I get up at 6:50 pm and I go out to my mom and I keep saying "It's time to go. They're here. We have to go." Mind you, this all happened on a Tuesday Night (Hebrew High is on a Wednesday.) So my mom is like "Go where?" and I start getting frusterated so I make this angry face and accidently spit on her and run off and go back to bed. My parents wake me up for dinner and my mom says "AMY? What happened earlier? Why'd you spit on me!?" Haha. I guess it would be funnier if you heard it in person but I vaguely remembered what had happened but no way would I spit on my mom.

Oh, and I'm a traitor to JAFTY. Oops. Last night was Hebrew High and David and Jason put a Traitor nametag on my head and didn't let me talk. But I am a rather bad JAFTYite. I think I've been to only 1 or 2 things. The USY convention is this weekend though and I'm very excited. Talia and I are going to school for 1st and 2nd period and then leaving and going to 3 Sisters and Tropical Smoothie and then to the Center.

Today Kristen, Talia and I are going over to JP's to play Halo 2. Ok, bye LJers.
