Okay, I woke up this morning soooooooo sick. I still feel like I'm going to throw up. I haven't had anything to eat today but a spoon full of peanut butter and a small diet pepsi. Everything that I'm supposed to eat today, on the diet, is not appealing to me at all and whenever I think about it, it makes me want to throw up. I am probably going to be living off of natural peanut butter for the next two weeks, or I'm going to fail on this diet. I can't take it and it has only been one day! I gotta go run errands with my mom and then pack for North Carolina! I leave tomorrow to go look at UNC and NC State!

Definately the worst night ever. I loathe my life. I really am so irate with my parents right now, specifically my mother, I seriously don't know what to do. I don't think I'll get to see Dustin when he comes home for Christmas because my brilliant parents are planning a cruise over Christmas break with the whole Moore side of the family. So my mom was reading dates off the computer of potential cruises we would go on and she saw me start crying, and then continuted to read them! IDIOT! Another thing that really bothers me is my mom goes to church every sunday in Clermont, which is almost 2 hours away! WTH! It's like I don't have a mother anymore...everyone in church asks where she is all the time. It's always my sister, dad and I in church on Sunday mornings. I'm going to be here for 1 year then I leave! No more church with dad and Jer! Wish I could say the family....

I hate it...

It's been an entire month since I've updated..lol. Honetsly I haven't been up to much. I got a speeding ticket and I've been having to work at my dad's office in order for me to pay for it. I've been school shopping (always fun), today I took care of my schedule for school...a little scary. AP Bio, AP Gov, Honors Economics, AP Calc, Calc, English 4, and 1st and 2nd period CDE.<= good times! :) Sadly, summer's almost over and I still have no car. Don't get it back until probably Sunday (if I pay for my whole ticket), and next sunday if I only pay for half. I still have a lot of thinking to do about that one. I leave for North Carolina on Thursday to go look at UNC and NC State. I'm excited about this trip. I can't believe in 9 months I'm going to be out on my own, living without my parents. SCARY. I need to hit the sack, I have to make a living tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. :)

NITE!

Today was the longest day EVER. I woke up around 7:45 and finished packing everything in my room, and bathroom up. Coach Prince and Weston came to load everything up and take it to the rental house and the warehouse. That was probably the most work I've done in a really really long time. I have a lot of respect for movers now.
I'm so happy that my family is all under one roof again, and not two. That was a rough couple of months for me, and my family...and I really appreciate all of the prayers because they've been answered. I am so thankful for my amazing parents and sister, and for the roof over my head, and food that is available for every meal and snacks.
I watched a show on MTV called True Life: I'm Dead Broke" and it made me so sad. Sometimes I go through life, wanting more and more and more. Sometimes I sound spoiled. I've never realized how good I had it, until I watched this show. A boy had to help support his family. He had to share a bedroom with 5 brothers and sisters (the room was tiny), they had no running water, the roof leaked, and he didn't have a car. One time he needed to be at the probation office at a certain time or else he'd be put in jail and he couldn't find a ride there. So he began to walk 18 miles. That's insane, and it really makes me sad. I complain about my car, I complained about having to share my bedroom with my sister for 4 months while our house is being built (even though I don't have to)...but really, there's nothing to complain about. I've really become aware of what I have and how blessed and thankful I am.

These lyrics describe how I feel and how much my attitude has changed....

I may never climb a mountain
So I can see the world from there
I may never ride the waves
And taste the salty ocean air
Or build a bridge
That would last a hundred years
But no matter where the world leads
One thing is always clear

I am blessed
I am blessed
For when I rise up in the morning
Til I lay my head to rest
I feel you near me
You soothe me when I'm weary
Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best
I am blessed

All along the war has travelled
I have crawled and I have run
I have wanderred through the wind and rain
Until I found the sun
The watching eyes ask me why
I walk this narrow way
I will gladly give the reason
For the hope I have today

I am blessed
I am blessed
For when I rise up in the morning
Til I lay my head to rest
I feel you near me
You soothe me when I'm weary
Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best
I am blessed

You've given me joy
You've given me love
You give me strength when I want to give up
You came from heaven to rescue my soul
This is the reason I know...

I am blessed
For when I rise up in the morning
Til I lay my head to rest
I feel you near me
You soothe me when I'm weary
Oh Lord, for all the worst and all the best
I am blessed

Hey guys! Haven't updated in a week...thats a little long for me, so this might be a long entry. Let's go back to Thursday morning.... Nathan and Chad came over and brought Court and I breakfast and hung out for half of the day and then I had to pack for Gainseville. My dad and I left around 2:00. When we got into town, we went to a hotel to visit a family friend who has cancer, and stayed there until about 7:00 just talking with him. The next morning he had surgery at 8:00 to remove tumors from his liver (a very dangerous surgery). After we left the hotel we went to my cousin's basketball coach's house. We watched the College World Series game and some of the Spurs and the Pistons game and ate dinner.
The next morning, I woke up around 8:45 and got ready to go visit UF. We had to be at the college at 10:00. My dad and I spent 3 hours at the college, taking a tour and buying some Gator Gear! I love the campus and I love how there's so much stuff to do, and so many courses available AND so much school spirit. Right now, I really want to go to UF. I'm going to keep my options open and visit some more schools, but at the moment this college is #1. I'm so excited about school next year!
Gotta go...have to finish getting ready. I'm going out to dinner with Kaye and then going to Focus!

LOVE!!!


Oh yeah...and I talked to D Woods - he's in Tennessee now, and I miss him muy mucho!!!! :(

I left camp with more friends and became closer with the ones I already had. I am so in awe of God, He is so amazing. Look at every intricate detail of everything on this earth (our fingerprints are all different, the stars in the sky, the precise percentages of the oxygen and other elements on this earth so we could survive) it is CRAZY to think about that kind of stuff, and God is so creative and so awesome because he made it...EVERYTHING!

Yesterday Court and I went to Winter Park at the very last minute. We left around 5:30 and drove up. When we got there, we went to Chick-Fil-A (because we don't have one in Sebring) and then went to the bowling alley. It was dollar bowling night. We need to have one, maybe more people would go since its not expensive! Geez! Here, its like $20 for a game or something like that, to go lunar bowling. Its redic! This morning Court and I left around 7:30 and went to Starbucks, then ate breakfast and Denny's. We were on a mission to find bathing suits to wear to camp, so we went to Target and Millenia...but found NOTHING. So on our way home we decided to stop at Eagle Ridge and go to Dillards. I seriously took every single tankini that I found and tried it on. I narrowed it down to two, and then just picked the classic black and white polka dot. Its decent. When I got home, I took a 3 hour nap. Tonight was grand. I got to hang out with Taylor, Nathan, and David!!! Good times! Taylor and I dominated at Scene It and then Nate, David, and I spent some QT together after Taylor left. It was good that I got to hang out with them, never really have before, but they're two GREAT guys!!! I heart them mucho! More good times to come!! I'm watching NEMO right now (my fave movie) so I'm gonna go and try to get some sleep. PEACE!
