i guess i owe you this.
Yeah, sorry guys. i know i completely owe you all a decent update. Here is the news for last week....
a lot of ickiness happened. sadly none of it is really resolved. Good part- shannon is not mad at me for what i did. but she kinda did a 180 on me which makes me a bit forlorn. Whatever. i'm becoming waaay too good of a liar for my own liking. And omygosh . i have lost like 12 million things lately... my headphones and CD player, my cell phone, 10 bucks, my nirvana book brittanie returned to me, and brittanies Radio Head the bends CD. now the book and hte cd i think i left in locker room... and i hope to God that i find everything. because if i don't... Lord knows it will be hell to pay. Let's see... any other good things?? Tuesday was SICA novice tournement at Oak Lawn HS. so that was cool. me and brianna didn't really do too well... but come on, a tournament on a tuesday??? i really don't think so (in the words of my friend jillian) so yeah. denis and josh came to watch us in our second round, got yelled at by a judge. It was great... except that theyw ere getting us into trouble.. still denis looks to cute to be mad at. Oh, yeah... i'm madly in love with denis (only one n!) which is crazy... he's a senior and im freshman (although he thought i was a sophmore) I think im joining the newspaper... and ill have more updates on all that later. I do S.O.S now. which is special occasion speaking for the speech team. You write a speech and infuse some sarcasm into it... needless to say, sarcasm is my specialty! lol. Its all good.. nothing else of note has really happened. OH WAIT! it SNOWED yesterday!!!!! hahaha. great packing snow... great snowmen. life is grand.

liz<-- i am thankful that holidays come only once a year! lol. ::giggles, DENIS!::

so you feel lonely?
so this is how it feels to be normal?
in the fast lane, waiting for the slow train
to pass you by.
give your life a shot at redemption,
youll be hard-pressed to swear not to mention.
all the things they've been dying to know.
since the downward spiral began to grow.
hey its time to show them what you're made of.
keeping things underground, like teenage love.
forced under the surface,
sure is a surefire way to replace.
everything you're missing out on.

hey gang. everythings fine here. im in love with denis. hahaha. hes a cute senior. my mom bough industrail size soy sauce?!?! yay!! and all is well. had some roungh days fill ya in later!

liz<-- did anyone notice that christmas-itis is the devil? (thats when christmas season starts before thanksgiving)

making me want to make out
out of
sheer despration

hey all.
mondays aren't too great, and i realized that this morning.. and then i realized that its tuesday! i love that, when you forget what it is. hahah. like mini-summer feeling. So day... what did we do... ah, yes. ASTINANCE VIDEO! homeroom. ppsssh. they definately should have charged admission for that one. it was so funny. but at the same time i don't see where a public school gets off telling kids not to have sex. I definately believe in a safe sex talk.. but public school really shouldn't be like... no sex... it's bad! but hey whatev... im not into sex. lol. whatev... the funnest way to say w/e. L O L : ) okay so whatelse was there.... ? english we had another sub.. realized that abbby still likes dave and wants to go out with him again... unfortunately, she was shut down. ooooh damn! lol. bio... of course i looked like a nerd-o and a half infront of ryan. i don't know why he has that effect on me. he just comes off as... so laid back and way cool you feel "intimindated" (psh hahahaha. joshua!) okay before i go on i think i need to tell you something about the cooless of the west family.-- kevin is the oldest. he's in his 20's.. in college, a speech judge... mad cool right? haven't reallyt talked to him.
ryan--gorgous! in my bio class. generally awesome. He heads up Timothy's Stand with seirra. totally Christ centered kid. i think thats extremely attractive. ; )
josh- my age. cutie but too shortie lol. no, josh is nice but i feel like he feels restrained by his brother over bearing religiousness. i dunno thats just my phsyco-babble anaylsis crap talking.
jenny- 7th grade little sister. josh made up this elaborate story about how i told her i liked ryan when i was helping her with band. only problem is that i never met her and i know i wouldn't go babbling about liking her brother in front of her. . . josh, what a card. im just joooking. lol.

okay enough of that. yesterday i hate to fill out a form for career day and i realized that i really have no idea what i want to do. I mean i really wanted to be a band director but im quiting band so i guess that;s kinda done. i just feel like without clarinet im nothing. that's my "thing" that's what i do... and now i don't have that. or at least i won't soon. so i signed up for journalism becuase i guess i could be a writer. but i think i might be cool to be a therapist... i dunno. might to straighten out my own issues first right? lol. so any suggestions for a career? hit up the posts.
speech- going well. brianna and i are definately butting heads a bit lately . infact, she sent me this grusome email about how poorly we did on saturday. i was a bit snippy with her at practice today... so im not helping making the situation any less uncomfortable. . . i just cannot wait to be in a solo event. I think im going into S.O.S (special occasion speaking) you take serious topic and toss some humor in. sarcasm... its a subtle art. I have to miss the next timothy's stand because i have a big novice tournament... nerves. soo yeah!!
ooh i also realized that chris is okay.and dennis is a cool cat. ellens coming over tommorrow. updates later!!

liz<--ryan:i thought vancouver island was somewhere int he baltic sea?
me: do you know where the baltic sea is?
ryan:no, by california right?
me:ryan, thats the PACIFIC OCEAN!
ryan: you look at me like that again and ill stab this pen through your face woman!

:: Music: fallout boy

oh boy oh boy oh boy, sure did turn out to be a great day.
so here's what happened during study hall. its kinda song/poem.

thank You for making me
and showing me its okay to me.
exactly the way i am.
because i know that i am. training for eternity.

by living i'm dying
but by that im not implying that i'd rather not be here.
to live, i know i have to give my life away to You.
Your death for me was priceless and from it You left me, sinless.
now i know this all seems a bit easier said then done
so give your life away
just do it slowly.
day by day.
and i swear it won't hurt, it will leave you alot more alert.

refrainish part:
so thank You for making me,
and telling me that its okay
to be me,
exactly the way i am.
and its all okay.
becuas im training for eternity.

i know this is the first time in a long
that im okay with feeling alright.
seeing through these smoke and mirrors makes me see my life alot more
im seeing Your plan for me, and finaly im realizing that with Your help i can.
i will live for you. and see past
all my insecurities.

refrainish part.

i am who i am and for its worth im okay with that.
im giving away all the things i bottled up inside.
thanks God, for letting all this slide.
i know the best choice was the one i made for You.
so right now im really being me
only made stronger with You.
So i guess today everything is going to be okay
because im training for eternity.

refrainsh part.

liz<-- yeah. that was my day. that was a fire drill today too. mad cool.

life can't be this terrible looking in from the outside.
i started crying again for no reason at all. just like started cutting again. for reason. i really feel like ruby doom and gloom lately because im just not as "cool" as everyone else is these days. im like not enough of ms.suzy high school. im having more mood swings then ever and im just blaming them on being a 14 year old girl.. its in the job descrpition. I just feel like i need to get my act together and stop crying and junk.i feel lately that im not religious enough to hang out with hard core christians and not normal enough to hang out with the normal kids. I just want Jesus to be the main focus again... and be a good kid again. and feel normal again. and not hurt myself anymore. i wish i came from one of those really neat christian families. i mean don't get me wrong ther is nothing wrong with my family ... they are exactly how they've always been and thats always worked out well so im not complaining. im just ... commenting on irony. rawr. frustrated. sorry. ill gonna go gang. ill check ya all later. lol

yeah i know. its been quite sometime.
This entire journal concept seems really pointless as of late. I have no time to be online let alone update my journal. Halloween was terrrible... but my costume was awesome... but other that it wasn't too good. Today there was a speech tournie.. me and brianna did a dramatic acting duet... and it was okay. We've only been working together for a week so all things considered we did well. Okay well right now i have to go... im going to renees 15th b day bash. i will most definately try my hardest to update more often. Haahahaha. later gang

:: Mood: at least im still living.
:: Music: the wind blowing my hair.

i know what they say... a promise is nothing like the real thing.
Okay so i told you i'd tell you how my first day went..... well here's the synopsis of the first week. if you haven't already guessed the homework load is atrocious. It's nto too bad ... but secretly i know that changing schools couldn't make me happy. Somethings wrong with me, yet i refuse to become oen those drug dependant teenagers. that would scare me to peices. Alright... here's the schedie--
HON. ENGLISH-DRISCOLL... this class seems alright but for some reason heather thinkst hat ms.driscoll isn't going to like me. i tend to agree. we're currently reading Night by Elie Weisel. it's about the holocaust it seems pretty okay.
BIOLOGY- MR. KEARNEY what were they thinking putting me in this! it's an all sophmore class... but mr.kearney is pretty cool. he assigns alot of projects which definately helps your grade. i her his tests are hard though.. that scares me. Im making up a bunch of hte projects i missed in the past few weeks.. its going to take me a whle to get used to this class.
GYM- MS.MADDEN. we're swimming right now.. and ive got to admit it sucks but its not that bad. I have a lot of funny swimming stories ill share later. But i feel like helen keller during swimming... i can't wear my classes so i can't see and i barely hear with all the splashing and the echoing. its crazy. but like i said.. for some reason it's relaxing.
HOMEROOM- i don't know my homeroom teachers name. on tuesdays we have juniors come in and talk about... stuff. like this tuesday was sterotyping.... dave cermake (yes tims brother) is one of our leaders.. HAHAHAHA.
LUNCH- well.. .the cafeteria is definately not mcauley's not by a long shot. but its okay.... its really cheap though which is AWESOME. lol. i sit with amy,sean, sean,jeremy, jenny maxwell,teddy atwood and megan castro.
ALGEBRA-MRS.BARTH. mrs.barth is cool. her tests are hard. i sit next to a kid with really strong cologne. all in all its not bad. right by my locker convient.. and fine.
STUDY-MRS.BEAN. its study it sucks. its far away frome everything nuff said.
SPANISH-MRS.JANAS-okay here's where my real trouble is. first of all, senora zeilner didn't teach me anything so im waaaay behind the class. It's really hard... i sit next to some junior kid who thinks its funny to call me a pot head. Jon Kenellos sits behind me and alex odonnell next to him. oh yeah, marissa's in that class. so yeah, this is definately my least favorite class. and mrs.janas has the MOST annoying voice.. EVEr. she over pronouced spanish words so obnoxiously i want to slit my wrists. Okay well. later.

oh yeah. im joing the speech team. hahahaha.
there's definately more about my day but this is all i have time for right now. I am painting my room with my dad and my mother and i are going to sportmart to buy me a new suit for swimming. Peace y'all.

::sings:: in 1492 columbus sailed the ocean blue
i love three day weekends like no other. i think i spent this one very very wisely. I didn't do anything to remarkable, or even worthwhile. but i passed the time and three days with borrowing only 20 bucks from my dad. That is really saying something.

Friday Night- football game. andrew vs. shepard that was fun. left early because no one of interest was there. saw tom .. of course that was good because i haven't seen him forever. I told him about how i made mistakes after homecoming and he was proud.. it was terrible actually. he was like b!z, i knew i would become a bad influence on you one day. it was insane. i miss him. tons. After the football game a select group of friends came over to my house. that was fun. Chris, stephanie, jill, laura, shannon, ryan fus, and lexi. i think thats all. not sure though. we just sat around... chris steph are having a major blow up.. which is filled with drama... everyone was home by 11 i was asleep by 1am. Life was swell.
Saturday- i went to brittanies we went to ulta and bound makeup. i also got TWO yes TWO free samples of the new brittany spears purfume! I LOVE IT. i recomend you each go out and by me a bottle. NOW NOW NOW. lol. by yourself one too. Everything at ulta was like buy one get one... it was grand. Bee's mom is such a great lady she helped me pick out all these awesome shades. it was great. I still am frustrated though because i can't put on eyeliner. its ridiuclous. i need practice. practice.. makeup.. yes i know.. a ludicrous concept. i have decided that i am redoing my room over thanksgiving... that will be fun. i picked out a great comforter from PBteen. ooh, how i love it. im getting a bigger bed to fill up my cavernous room and also some new furniture. life is swell. ooh yeah back to saturday. stayed up late watched season one of sex in the city.. what a dirty show. most definately a guilty pleasure lol. life is swell.
Sunday- me and britt meed up with amy. then steph, jill, laura and ellen. it was great. we went to seven eleven.. flicked off jills uncle because brittanie thought he was hitting on us. she screamed at him.. "Gross! you're like my dads age. old man" jsut then jills cell rang.. it was her uncle. that was funny. she told him that sh was at shanons house which was of course a complete lie. lol. sunday was like the funnest day of the weekend i do believe but i can't really recall anything of importance that we did. we saw dave that was funny because she sa loser since he dumped ellen. but hat was really all. slept oever at ellens. little brothers are also a guilty pleasure. that was all. and again.. life is swell.
MONDAY- got home at about two from ellens... did my home work. waited for my dad to get home. carved pumpkins withhim. and baked pan cookies. is it odd that associate baking cookies more with my father then my mother? perhaps but oh, well. our pumpkin looks rad and i cannot wait to put it outside. My dad also makes a mean pan cookie. NOTE: for all of you that don't know what a pan cookie is i pity you. theya re also called "blondies" but i think thats a little queer. its basically a chocolate chip brownie.. but man are they good.
OKay. well. i thikn tahts finaly all of my columbus day weekend review. thats the very very abreivated version.. cliff notes has nothign on me. lol. life is swell.
