so I haven't done this in a while.
Now I may have appeared to drop off the edge off the world for a while... I hadn't = (
lol I was busy! working babysitting working working no time for fun.
lol actually a little time for fun but not much.
AAAAAAAAAANYWHO, this looks very un-formal... kinda like my life right now. Grad was awesome now i need to work and do stuff lame i know but someone has to!
Through my rollercoaster of obsessions there are 2 that are a constant... my music and my pictures... so here we go:

first my ipod

With 1763 songs
and 59 videos on it its a must have when going anywhere!
I have everything from Mozart to Madonna, Faith Hill to... i don't know
I have every kind of music on there though!

and I don't have a picture of my camera so I'll show you pictures that I've recently taken with it!

listening to my ipod lol you can see the haedphones

So graduation is soon and guess who got the privilege of making the program cover... that's right yours truly(me)! I'll put a copy up here:

I can't wait until friday the closer it gets the more exciting it is! I got grad presents too!
From my parents I got : plates, cups, cutlery, and a microwave. Thank you for trying to tell me to move out nicely = P
From my aunts uncles and Grandma and Grandpa (the Weibe side) I got a 3 piece luggage set (its SUPER nice)and my grandma knit me a blanket too, I love you guys... I don't know if I'll get anything from the other side but we'll see... we haven't had a grad party for that side and I don't know if we will. They aren't into parties and presents and stuff. I love you too though! From Co-op I got $100 nice bonus Thanks. ( It pays my straightener lol) I still haven't decided what to get myself, I think a trip to Edmonton at Christmas would be a nice gift... but we'll see, don't give away the surprise though I want to be AMAZED! lol I love west Edmonton mall its awesome! Leticia, Ashley and I want to go there for a week over Christmas break and go swimming and to the theme park and stay at a hotel and since I'll be 18 I can get a hotel room with out my parents!! YAY! lol That's part of the reason we are waiting until Christmas! I can't wait! I hope we do actually go though and that this isn't just a dead plan to get us through half a year...= )

Now for the explanation, I'm sorry if you don't get it, one of the definitions for quixotic was impulsive: tending to act on impulses, and who is more impulsive then children? (other then me) So I went out and got flowers and let Taran and Carlin play with them to see what they'd do... and then they ran into their moms garden and started picking flowers out of there and giving them to me... and blades of grass and sticks, lol they'll give me anything as long as I smile and say thank you to what ever they gave me last. SO CUTE! Then I set them up at the door and gave them to my mother because I love her. OOOOH and a warning, don't let your children run in stores, card racks lurk everywhere waiting to spring out at you at any given moment( that's why Carlin has a gash on his forehead, he was still my happiest child that day!) Anywho sorry its late.

So once again the scavenger hunt has become a vocabulary challenge for me. Thia weeks word quixotic (that's a good speed scrabble word if I remember it!)chosen by NoRegrets. Thank you for once again expanding my views on words. AAAAAAAAAAny who I'm not going to lie when I saw that word I almost cried, what kind of crazy insane difficult word is that, who knows words like that. If I ever get to pick a word I'm going to randomly draw a card out of balderdash and put my finger on one of the words and as long as its not something boring meaning that's the word I'm going to pick! That's a fun game! So I went and consulted my handy dandy dictionary and here is what it told me " Quixotic means excessively romantic: tending to take a romanticized view of life, impractical: motivated by an idealism that overlooks practical considerations, impulsive: tending to act on impulses" and my other definition was, like Don Quixote; romantic to extravagance; absurdly chivalric; apt to be deluded. I think I'm going to look for the novel that Don Quixote is in. I know EXACTLY what I want to do for this, if it turns out right this will be interesting if it doesn't work.... I don't know what I'll do. lol Do or die I guess!

My Family loves to play games!
Our favorite games are card or dice games that you can play quickly or with out taking turns. LOL. Leticia, Eric, and I like playing strategy games like clue, golf, and battleship. Our whole family likes to play speed scrabble, we also like games like Taboo and scatagories.

I like taking the boys:

and we go to the park and play!

more beautiful

This is a beautiful song... sometimes... I and I think most other women feel like if we just lost weight or got the right hair cut buy the latest trends, do our make up a certain way or just change somehow, that we'd be perfect some one will notice us. I cried when I watched this video. One because I'm a big cry baby two because ti really spoke to me and I'm sure it can and will speak to many other girl and women. So please take the time to listen to it or read the lyrics or.... just think about it. Your beautiful and though I probably haven't/ wont see everyone who reads this... I mean that! Your perfect the way you are and its taken me a while to figure that out and I'm still working on it but its coming. (lyrics at the bottom)

More Beautiful You by Jonny Diaz

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn’t straight her body isn’t fake
And she’s always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you’ve already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you’ve got a man but he’s got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there’s a man whose love is true
And he’ll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you’re not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It’s not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who’s strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you’ll see through the eyes of a little girl

Sign (ok so they aren't so good but it was fun!)

Signs are a very useful part of society.
They give directions,they tell you where you are and where your going, they advertise and give you messages (Like gas is 99.9/leader), they warn you, you sing in and sign out.

But all signs communicate something!

I am planing something truly awesome for the scavenger hunt. Sign! hehehe! hahaha! lol! ummm yeah I'm laughing. (insert laugh here). Yesterday was Toms final day on earth. Poor kitty didn't even know what was coming. I wonder what went through his mind in the final seconds... was it OH MY GOSH there is a bullet flying at me! or Now I can finally get away from those pesky dogs I hate so much. Did he see Molly waiting for him? Did he feel any pain? That is the main thing... as long as it didn't hurt. I miss him but I know it was for the better. NOW Theo on the other hand... my parents gave him away when I was working and they didn't even let me say goodbye or see who they were giving him to! Those people! lol I miss him too but in a way I'm glad we no longer have cats. Though if we get mice I'm going to go buy another one! mice are worse then cats!

why do i need a title?

I'm running out of Titles, if that is even possible. Its because I really have no topics to talk about... yesterday was my last youth ever. I still don't know how I feel. Right now everything is so.... surreal. Like this can't be happening, the world as I currently know it is coming to an end, soon I will be an adult. My parents aren't helping either, not telling me important things , and they keep stressing all the expenses that I will have when I turn 18! Rent, Groceries, Bills, Car payments, Gas, clothes(which I buy now anyway), put away money for school, buying my DSLR(which I desperately need so I can start a portfolio so I can go to school). So much stuff to think about, I'll be off my dads health plan... so I have to pay my own dentist and optometrist and meds.I'm really not looking forward to it! I can't wait to Graduate but right when I do the pressures of the world will crash onto me... I think I'm gonna cry at grad. DEFINITELY!

Last weeks word was rambunctious, and I had NO IDEA what/ who to feature. most of my family and pets are loud, annoying, and/or hard to control (including me). So I had a hard time, and in the end I decided I'll wait until next week. we'll see if I can do better. Though I am PRETTY sure I can do better then nothing so it shouldn't be to hard!

May 31 my aunt had a bouncing baby boy named Rustle Elijah, lol his next youngest sibling is... 11 I think, poor kid. She's planing on having another one though so he isn't lonely. I don't think he will be lonely anyway. He will be my cousin Tiffanys baby and she wont leave him alone for a second. She's 15(almost 16) and she's wanted 21 children since.... for as long as I can remember. She'd always list them names she wanted for them but I would zone out so... that never got very far. It wasn't my fault though! 21 Children with 3 names each!! That's 63 names to listen to!! (I didn't even use a calculator for that one! lol) CONGRATS AUNTY LISA, I love you, and am glad everything went smoothly.

I got my calculus mark today.... not the final mark, I hope its higher then that, but right now I'm at 89%. That's just because of the HORRIBLE mark I got on my last test. 34/48... =( stupid sandwich theorem! I got home and I was like OOOOO YEAH the sandwich theorem! Thats where the final number has to be between the 2 limits! like 1<5,>

Fire drill!

So I'm in school right now and we JUST had a fire drill! the whole school had to go out side and ... oooo its pointless. This was probably my last fire drill ever =( awe! lol and YES!!! MY LAST FIRE DRILL EVER!!lol Well thats it for today!

I was thinking about the word grow for the scavenger hunt.
When I was pondering this word I thought of 2 things:
how nicely the flowers have grown through the frost and flooding
and how my cats have grown up and grown old.
So my pictures for May 23 are of:
the flowers beside my house
Theo on one of the first days we got him
and Tom and Theo last fall (before the never ending snow we were cursed with!)

They look so grown up and I can't believe flowers can grow in Manitoba this year... our rhubarb is also ginormous! I don't really like rhubarb though... its good in cake and jam but. yuck!

Today is tuesday for all you who didn't know that. It feels like it should be friday, I wish it was. Maybe I don't lol I don't know, this week wont be a very hard/ busy week but still... This morning when I was eating breakfast my mom came to me and was like,
"Jess I will be at school at 3 o'clock so be ready!"
"Ready for what?" I replied, clearly confused, partly due to the fact that it was 8 in the morning and also because I had no idea what she was saying or why she wanted to pick me up. She just stared at me probably thinking LORD help this poor child, because clearly I was loosing it. lol Not my fault I don't look at the calender! Anywho, so she tells me I have an optometrist appointment so we are leaving at 3 SHARP. lol

I LOVE the optometrist they have such interesting things to read on their walls! They even have a slide show about your eyes and how they focus light inside for you to watch while you wait and its cool. They show you what happens in your eye if your far sited, if your near sited, if you have an astigmatism, which I do have so... INTERESTING! I think that would be an easy job and it would be super fun! I love looking at peoples eyes... so pretty.

That's the first thing I look at/ notice when I meet someone their eyes and their teeth! lol That sounds kind of weird but its true. Its probably because I make eye contact when I talk to people. I hate it when people don't look at you when they talk to you. Its very annoying!

Now on to a slightly more exciting topic, I know its hard to beat the optometrist, but here we go! ROBERT PATTINSON! Mmm... sigh... LOL ok. So hes hot, hes famous, he acts and get this, HE SINGS. lol He says he is book for like the next year because he is composing music for a movie and hes making New Moon ( the second movie in the twilight series). He has some other movies out too How to Be and Little Ashes.

How to be is an indie film made in the UK. Its comedy and looks like it would be a GREAT movie. Its about a guy (Robert) who wants to be a musician but it isn't working to well for him, so he hires an author of a self help book to come and help him get his life together. The previews look really good!
lol I think I'm in a quarter life crisis. Wait how long does that mean I'll live... 68... only... hum that's to short lol ok I'm having a pre-quarter life crisis lol. ( I don't know what to do with my life after I graduate). Then there is the movie Little Ashes. Here he is an artist, Salvador Dali, and there is something about a war and I don't quite know whats going on but I think he's gay and... I don't quite know. I showed my art teacher this preveiw and she was like "Salvador Dali!!" and so she wants to see it because he was like a famous artist or something, but I don't really know (the only reason I'd want to see this movie is because of Robert Pattinson). HAPPY TUESDAY!!
