So I haven't gotten better about updating... though not entirely my fault - computer was down for the past week or so. Let's see, what's new? First of all: thanks for all the comments! Alex I promise, in the name of Abraham Lincoln, you WILL get that IM Conversation. As far as the Great Escape goes, Andy... not sure about that or not. :-\ Unfortunately since my mom went back to work at the beginning of the summer I am stuck here watching my brothers during most week days and soccer will be starting next Monday (by the way... wicked stoked for that!!) And Crystal and I this whole summer have been trying to set it up so that I live with her for 4 days (Fri-Monday) and am only home Tues-Thurs. when my mom needs me to babysit. So hopefully that will work out starting this weekend and assuming it does, I won't be home on weekends either. :(

As far as recent events go.. I got my license on the 3rd been driving my moms Ford Escape around - so for all of my Granvillian friends, you are no longer safe on your sidewalks across the border. Heheh... just kidding. On a more serious note, my Uncle AJ died on the 4th from a bad heart attack and I had to sing "Amazing Grace" and "You Raise Me Up" (his 2 favorite songs) and I pretty much had all I could do to not break down in front of my family... not fun. =
Getting away from depressing talk- Crystal officially FINALLY came over again... good times. We're rebels (CK you know!!) haha. Nah, it was great fun. Then a few days later she came back over b/c it was wicked hot that day and her mom didn't want her in her house b/c it's crazy hot there and we have 2 ACs constantly running (personally I'm always freezing but w/e). So we had yet s'more fun. Did a Race for the Cure (Breast Cancer for all you people out there scratching your head). I did the women's run and then the walk... totalled 6.2 miles that day.

Went to the carnival and got to sing a bazillion songs with Young Country (popular band that immitates country singers.. they go to like the Wash. County fair / pretty much all the local carnivals).. which I have my moms big mouth to thank for that. Because they were setting up early on in the day and she told them that she had a daughter that liked to sing and so she came back to the house and got me and I sang some songs for the lead singer / guitarist and he was like: "wow... you have an awesome voice you should really consider getting into music, etc. etc." and I was suprised because these guys are pretty amazing. So yeah, he was like: we'd love you to help us out tonight or w/e so I did, not bad. It was pretty fun I guess.

Let's see... what else have I been doing? In between using my driving privileges to go see my Bestest I've pretty much just been around here watching my brothers. Not exciting. Been playing soccer at the fields, said goodbye to Viele [left for Ireland again on Monday morning], been out jogging / biking, reading here and there, etc.

Finally got a car. It's old but not in bad condition at all. 1997 Ford Escort, Green / teal color. Getting seat covers here in a few weeks. Got it cheap ($600) cause my dad knew the guy. Then it cost $400 for new front / rear brakes, 2 new front tires and a couple other little tweeks I had done to it. Gets 35 miles to the gallon... can we say FREAKIN AWESOME!!!! The only thing I don't like is that there's no CD Player or even a casette so I can't even plug it in there!!! AHHH!! But I think my dad is going to get one for my birthday (Hopefully sooner than October though). Because I paid for $800 out of the $1000 it totaled to. Yeah, definitely not some little rich girl who gets anything she wants from daddy. Hate me. Lol =P No, I really don't care... just a car that will get me to and from school and soccer practice. Pretty much all I care about. Not really all about impressing people but w/e. Yeah, so I have the insurance for it and I'm going to Rutland on Friday to get it registered while my parents are at work. So hopefully I can be driving it by this weekend. Hmm... this is a very long update and I could probably be making better usage of my time.

Oh! Before I forget: Went into school and got my schedule b/c the online thing wasn't working for me... not sure if this is set in stone or not, but this is what I have:

1) SUNY Statistics
2) AP Psychology
3) Gym(a) / Chorus (b)
4) English
5) Yearbook
6) Lunch (1st Semester) / Health (2nd Semester)
7) Physics
8) Lab (a) / SHall (b)
9) Government (1st Semester) / Economics (2nd Semester)

Alright, well I'm officially leaving. So keep posting comments and I'll try to be better about this thing. We'll see. Got a busy rest of the summer. <3 lisaaaaaaaa

So I've been procrastinating this update. I'm a horrible person. Kick me, oh do it already.

Not much is new anyway. And that's the way I like it. Everyday has either been spent at Crystals or here with her (today and a few days last week). We've decided to make a time capsule thing and bury it at the end of summer and then dig it up the night before Graduation. Gonna be sweet. :) Yesterday was my parents 18th Anniversary, which by the way; I forgot. Haha. OOOooops. Okay, so not only am I a horrible updater, I'm a horrible daughter. And what's worse I'm apparently a horrible friend since no one calls me back *cough* JillianCox *cough*. haha. Nah, she's just a slacker - the rest of you losers are the ones who call and IM ME. Sorry I'm bad at getting back to you all. But I will, I swear. I may be slow, but I'll eventually get there on the to-do list. No but seriously - if this is Jill... you had better be calling me missy!!! >:o ... I MISS YOU!!!!

Besides all that - not much has been going on this summer. Little of this, little of that. Been going to soccer every monday night at the fields... a whole bunch of people show up and we play against the Guatemalans. Pretty awesome I'd say. And they remember me?! hahaha... ahh - gotta love it.

Well I'm officially sick of this update so I'm gonna get going. Perhaps I will be better about updating more frequently. Then again, maybe not. LEAVE ME COMMENTS !!! <3>:=}~ hahaha. love, me
