Since the last time I blogged, a lot has happened and a lot hasn't, and yet I feel like there are so many things I need to say, so I have a feeling this is just going to be one mumble-jumble, hodge-podgey kind of blog. So bear with me!

School started back up and I found out my semester grades.... I GOT A FREAKING 93% ON MY PHYSICS FINAL. I almost peed my pants when I saw that! I am so happy! And to put more icing on the cake (is that a phrase or did I make that up?), She hadn't entered a few test grades yet before the final, so when she did it boosted my grade to a 95% overall. :D

AP English could've gone better for everyone in the class, as in I was one of the five people that actually passed the final... She gave us an opportunity to boost our final grade though, so I boosted my 72% final to an 88%, with an overall 94% in the class.

In other words, I got straight A's, which I'm very pleased with.

Getting back into the groove of things has been a bit harder. After sitting around all break and doing pretty much nothing besides munch on cookies, work? Whaaaat's that? I've been really slacking in this new semester and I think I've just been overall in this really weird mood. Like I've been so moody. One minute I'm all happy-go-lucky, then I'm sad, then I'm angry. It's the most bizarre thing.

Last Friday, we didn't have school because teacher's had a work day, so I was rather looking forward to it. It turned out to be such a horrible, horrible day. I wanted to go to Wal-Mart, as I had ordered a book (Peter and the Starcathers, yes, I am a nerd and a 5-year-old at the same time) so my mother offered to take me, as we hadn't gone to get my actual license yet--I had taken my driver's test, but had not gotten the official little plastic card that legally let's me drive. We decided that we would drop by the License Bureau as well and get it.

So we set out on what I thought would be a quick, one hour tops trip. My mom says she needs to stop in to Schnucks. Sure. She needs to go to the Post Office. Okay. She needs to go to Walgreens and get her Passport picture taken as she was renewing it. Alright. Oh, do you mind if I go to Deirbergs and pick up that pie Ryan bought us? My mother managed to drag me around for about two hours before we even hit the Wal-Mart parking lot. I go in, get my book, wait another half-hour for her.

We finally get to the License Bureau and we sit down in line. My mom starts pulling the stuff we needed out of her purse minus one thing: my social security card. I groan and explain for what feels like the millionth time that I needed my birth certificate, social security card, proof of address, permit, and driving test paper.

The day never ended. We drove back home, back up to the place, got my license, la di dah. By then I was in such a sour mood. I managed to throw away almost all of my day just being drug around by my mom.

And then to add on top of it, Andrew managed to be a douche-bag and just casually told me he was at another girl's house with a few other people. Uhm, what??

Needless to say, I was royally pissed and my day was ruined. I would've rather gone to school. But I think I'll explain our fight later; I would like you're guys opinion on it eventually.

I think I'll end my Friday rant for now.

In order with keeping up with my New Year's Resolutions/goals, I have been reading more and working out more. I'm taking Basic Weight Training this semester to fullfill the PE credit I still need and I'm actually really enjoying it. There are a few girls from my tennis team in there so it's been really fun.

I've also been getting up earlier in the mornings and doing some old workout videos that my mom had. I'm really trying to shed some pounds, just to feel better about myself. I think I already am, just feeling healthier. I'm on a kind-of-diet as I'm not really limiting the foods I eat, I'm just trying to eliminate extra snacking and to not eat like an elephant like I tend to do.

I had another snow day today, so I worked out a little bit longer today than I normally would've and tried to do some exercise we would've done in Basic Weight Training, just to keep up with it.

Becky is going to come down in a bit and we're going to have a Harry Potter movie marathon. :D

Anywho, I'll end this novel-long blog post. :P

Wow, congratulations on doing so well on your physics exam! That is very impressive. o: Same for your English exam; if the rest of the class didn't pass and you did then you should be very proud.

I bet you will get back into the swing of things soon. (: It's only been a few days since you started back, right?

My mom does that to me all the time! D: I totally feel you there. It's exciting that you got your license though! Oh, sorry about your boyfriend. D: Hearing that is never fun.

Ah, I have been working out more to actually look good in a winter formal dress. o: It's too short term to actually make a difference, though. Bah. It is great that you are keeping up with your resolutions, though!

Eliminate extra eating is always really useful. If you combine that with exercise then you can definitely shed a few pounds. (: Best of luck!

I hope you had a good time watching Harry Potter.

Bah, it's not that big of a deal. My two girl friends from my mountain community have been obsessing over us since the summer so they are blowing it out of proportion. D:

You have to be a junior to go to prom? Oh, I guess we do too. I never really thought about that. xD I didn't go to homecoming, so this will be my first dance and I'll actually have a date. /:

Yeah, going with friends isn't really an option. Thanks, though! I'll try to be relaxed.

Me too!

That reminds me of my high school days when I got straight As. It's always hilarious when only a few people manage to pass an exam. (Lol AP English) Now college is hard and As are really really hard to come by. Anyways, straight As in high school are not easy either. Congratulations!

I don't want to not-sympathize with you, but I think that Andrew (your boyfriend?) may not have been doing anything wrong. He was with a few friends. That usually implies that nothing suspicious is happening.

I hope that things get better for you! Good luck on your resolutions!

Congratulations on all the passing high scores/grades! I'm proud of you! And for getting your license, even if your mom dragged you around for what seemed like an eternity but in the end it was worth it wasn't it? Well; besides your boyfriend going casually over to another girl's house to hang out with friends. Bum...but I could be looking into it more than that? But I dunno....anyway, yeah it was misread by both of us, we're still friends on face book to say the least which is really cool we just kinda misinterpreted a lot of what each other was saying. According to my friend Latrice. But anyway, I'm gonna go now...but congratulations on your high scores again!!! Take care!!!

Wow, that is an amazing score! Congratulations! I'm a little scared for that class. xD

An A in an AP class is just phenomenal. Congratulations!

Oh, gosh. That sounds like quite an... enjoyable Friday. Never go shopping with your parents. Ever. xD

Aw, sorry your boyfriend went over to some other girl's house. Was it just a friend's house? I'm sure he is still loyal to you an whatnot. I've never dated, so I can't really say, but I hope you two resolve all that. :)

Good for you for wanting to be healthier! That is a great goal to have. :)
