...Friends...


Some of my friends have made me mad. And you probably think that is weird because I am usually so happy. But when I get mad, I get really mad. Only certain people can make me feel better again. Usually, when I am mad, I don't say anything because I don't want to say something that I would regret. I was ignoring my friend because she made me mad, and then she got mad at me even more. Later, she told me she didn't like fighting and asked why I didn't talk to her . I told her I didn't talk to her because she was acting mean and I didn't want to say something I would regret. She told me she regretted talking to me like that. I told her I forgave her and now we are friends again. That is a good thing because she is a great friend. I am really good friends with some of the guys too. I like hanging out with them because there is usually no drama between them. They joke around a lot and they know that. They won;t get mad over silly little things. Sometimes Sawyer does though, but he is just pretending. I think it is weird how Sawyer and Madelyn, and Sawyer and Jaden are married. It is just weird to me. At least they don;t have rings, otherwise that would be super freaky. I am glad that right now, we are all getting along. It is the end of the school year, and I can't wait for Summer 2012. :) I am going to do lots of things. One of the things I am looking forward to the most is... sleeping in! Haha :)

Madelyn Monroe :)


Madelyn told me to write a blog about her, so I am. Madelyn Monroe is one of my best friends. She is really talkative and loud. Her laugh is very funny though. She has braces like me. We are both brace faces. :) We will get them off about the same time too. Madelyn would do anything to defend a person and to make them happy. She is like a mother to some of us. Conner even calls her his second mom. Madelyn is usually a happy person and is fun to be around. I think that Madelyn is awesome. We have so many laughing attacks. I think that the saying is, the more you laugh, the longer you will live. If that is true, then I will live for a very, very long time. Unless something tragic happens, like I get into a car crash. I hope that doesn't happen. That would be so sad. Sorry, I got off topic. Back to Madelyn. She is very smart and pretty. I love her glasses tan that she has. :) It is so funny looking at her when she takes off her glasses. It's like she got a spray tan and forgot to take her glasses off. :) Even though sometimes we get into fights, we can't stay mad at each other forever. I think that we will always be best friends, no matter what. Madelyn and I tell each other everything. We tell all of our secrets. I trust her a lot and I don't think that she would ever tell anyone my secrets and I know for a fact that I will never tell anyone hers.

Joel Hanson :)


Joel told me to write a blog about him, so I am. He has green eyes and brown hair. I think that he should have put on the Justin Beiber wig that Mr. Johnson had. I bet he would have won that. Either him or Blain. I don't think Blain even needed a wig. Joel can be funny sometimes, but not all of the time. Sometimes he can be mean, but not usually. He's usually happy. He acts weird sometimes though. Joel also says some weird things. I think that his dancing is the best. Haha. I am sure you would agree. :) He may need to work on his moves just a little bit. I bet he would be a great singer to. Joel is into sports a lot. He played football, basketball, and went out for track. I think he plays baseball too, but I don't really know if he does. This is taking some thought, I don;t really know what else to say about him. Joel has a nice smile. I guess he is kind of muscular. I like his butt. Even though Joel can get on your nerves sometimes, he's not really that bad. He likes to cheer people up. He can also be protective and flirty. He gives people mixed signals. A lot. Umm, what else is there to say about Joel. He is very honest, and can tell when you are lying about something. He also doesn't think he is a great basketball player, even though he is. That is pretty much all I have to say about Joel, I hope you enjoyed reading this. I bet you enjoyed this one even more than all of the other ones you have read. He also can make me smile, no matter what he does.

School


I think that school should start later in the day like around 10 a.m. That would be perfect. No one would be tired, because they got to sleep in later. I think that everyone would agree with me to do that. I also want to know why you guys assign us homework. I know it is to get us to learn more about things on our own, but can't you just give us all class time to do it? I know sometimes you do that, but I wish we had more time to do some things. I also don't like it when one person does something wrong, and the teachers yell at the whole class. It's like, why are you yelling at us? Not all of us did that. Why don't you guys just talk to the one person? I know some of us don't listen that well, but I am sorry that our class sometimes makes you mad. I don't think we mean too. I don't know why they would make you mad on purpose though. Sometimes we just do stuff that annoy other people. We don't try to, we are just being ourselves. Also, it makes us feel bad when you yell at all of us. I know you say some of us don't do that, but I still feel bad. I think that we should go outside more. Especially during the end of the day. If it is nice. I am not trying to push you into doing anything, but I would really like to go outside. I know I am not the best speaker. I just don't like talking in front of people. I have to get over that, but I have no idea how I am. I don't know why I am so nervous. I have known these people for a long time. I should be used to talking to them. I just don't want to look like an idiot in front of the whole class.

Cheating :(


I do not get why people cheat. It makes no sense to me. I mean, if it's not working out, just break up with that person and tell them that you want to see other people. No matter how much that hurts them, its better to tell them that than to cheat on that person. And if you are wondering if that ever happened to me.. well it hasn't. That annoys me though. No matter what you do, you just should not, ever, EVER cheat on a person. You can make them feel so many different things, like anger, disappointment, hurt, broken, sad, depressed, and that is pretty much it. If anyone ever cheats on me when I am older, I will probably bawl my eyes out. I could probably never trust that person again. No matter how many times they would say they are sorry, it wouldn't matter. It doesn't change what they did. People do deserve a second chance, but when it comes to cheating, I don't know if they should. They lied about everything they said to you. Like if they said, you are my one and only, they were lying. You would have second thoughts if another guy said that to you and he really meant it. You would make that girl feel so scared that it will happen again, and she probably won't ever be able to trust any guy ever again. Would you like to be that person that made someone feel that way? No, I am sure you wouldn't because if you did, then there is something majorly wrong with you. I am serious, I don't think that there is anything worse than cheating on someone.

Cellphones


I think that cellphones are good for people. They help you communicate with people who you can rarely see and you get to know them better. I prefer the phones that you can slide open and you can text people. I don't like it when a person texts you and then you text them back, then they don't reply. I'm just like, why did you text me if you weren't going to start a conversation? That makes no sense to me. I also like it when a person can keep a conversation going. If they just stop in the middle of it, it makes no sense. I also don't like it when people ignore you. Can't they just say that they don't want to talk to you? I don't think it's that hard to do and the person should understand that you don't want to talk. I think that cellphones can be useful because if you are in an emergency, you just need to call 911 and they will come to your help. There can also be some bad things about cellphones. For example, say that you and your friends go into a fight. They could keep calling you, or saying bad things about you. They could hurt your feelings a lot. That sucks. Overall, I think that cellphones are good for people to have. I don't think that younger people need them though. Who would they text? Its not like all of their other friends have their own phone. I don't see the point in little kids having cellphones. No one needs to have a cellphone until they are in middle school. I wish some of my friends would get cellphones.

St. Paul Trip Part Three


After we went and saw the Omnimax movie, we left the Science Museum. We went to the zoo after that. It was about a fifteen minute drive. We first visited the flamingos and ducks. We also saw the orangutans. They kind of freaked me out. I wished that their were elephants there. I was kind of surprised that there weren't any there. It was kind of funny that Collin was afraid of the giraffes. I wonder why they are so scary to him. I think he might have been faking that, but I have no idea if he was. I liked seeing the tigers and lions. Tigers are my favorite animal. I don't know why they are, they are just an animal that I really like. I also liked seeing the penguins, but I thought that exhibit smelled really bad. I also liked watching the seals. They were fun to watch. The polar bears were fun to see to. The only bad thing about seeing all of the animals, is that they were all sleeping. They seemed passed out. I liked the flower things though. They smelled really good, but it was really hot in there. In the gift shop, I got my mom a key necklace. Then we left. On the way back, it was kind of fun, but I was really tired. We watched some movies and talked about the most random things. Also, I almost fell asleep. I don't like the bathroom on the hawkeye stages bus. It kind of freaks me out. I had a really fun day on Thursday. My favorite part was the Omnimax movie. I thought that was the best.

St. Paul Trip Part Two


After we were done eating, our group went to level 4. A lot of people must have been using the elevators because we had to wait a while before one finally opened that wasn't full. When we got there, we went up to see the mummy. I thought that it looked weird and gross. There were also these types of boxes where you could press a button multiple times and whatever was in the box would move. We also played a game that was up there. Then, after that, we went up to level 5 and looked around. There was a TV thing, where you could record a newscast. Joel and Blain did that, and they were funny. Morgan was embarrassed by them. I felt sorry for her, but she got over it. We also visited the tugboat thing. It was air-conditioned in there. Many people were up there too. Joel, Blain, and Collin trapped me in a corner and wouldn't let me go back down. Then, Morgan called me and asked when we were coming down, and I told her that I was trapped, she told me that if we didn't come, she would come up and get us. Then they said, I guess we should go down. So, we did. After that, we went on the musical stairs. It was cool. Morgan took a video of it. Then, after that, we looked in the gift shops. Morgan and I got a dinosaur. They were cool. Then, after that, we went and saw the Omnimax movie. I thought that was really cool. I was to watch a scary movie in one of those. I would really freak out.

St. Paul Trip Part One


On Thursday, we went on a trip to St. Paul. It was a fun day. I didn't really like waking up that early in the morning though. I liked the groups that we were in. It was really fun. The first level that we went on was level 4. On that, we looked at the bacteria in our mouths. It was kind of gross, but cool at the same time. Then, we went on level 3. I think that level was the dinosaur level. It was interesting to see. There was the one thing that you could press and then the T-rex's mouth would go up and down. Also, there was this station over there where we had to do some things. The workers over there gave me and Morgan a rope to put on our hands. Then we had to figure out a way out without cheating. We tried and tried, but we didn't figure out. Then, they showed us what to do and told us to try it by ourselves, and we got free. It was fun. Then, after that, Collin and Blain tried it. They were hilarious to watch. They couldn't figure it out, without cheating. After that level, we didn't have that much time left, so we checkout out the 1st level. It was the garden one. There was a maze there. I didn't do it, but Joel. Blain, Collin, and Morgan did. Morgan was the last one out. Collin drank some of the water from the fountain. That was weird. After that, we went up and ate our lunch. We also took some pictures after we were done eating our lunch.

Adventure Land


We had to wake up really early on that Saturday. We had to leave at 6 A.M. It was a really rushed morning. We had to turn back around because someone forgot to bring the percussions music. It is a good thing that we weren't too far away yet. The bus seats were uncomfortable. I had to sit with Blain on the bus. It was fun when we finally got there. We got the whole morning and almost all of the afternoon to do whatever we want. First, we went on the train. That wasn't very fun. Then we went on the carousel. Everyone looked at us kind of weird, but at least they don't know us. We also went on an underground train. It was kind of scary, but funny. Madelyn kept screaming because she didn't like the dummies that were in their. That was very funny. We also went on some other ride. I can't remember what they were called. We went on a couple of other roller coasters. I went on the Tornado and The Outlaw. But I would not go on the upside down roller coasters. They scare me. I think I am going to fall off of them. Nathan didn't go on them either, so at least I wasn't alone waiting for the other people to finish. Before we had to go to get ready to perform, we went on this water ride. It wasn't such a good idea, but we didn't care. We went on that ride three times because it was kind of cold out and no one was waiting in line. That was very fun. The first time, Conner got soaking wet. The second time, Nathan and I got soaking wet. The final time, Madelyn and nathan's sister, Heather got soaking wet. Nathan kind of got wet also. The third time we had a lot of water in it. Then after that, we performed and then we went home.

Mother's Day


This weekend, we went to both of my grandparents' houses to celebrate Mother's Day. It was fun. On Saturday, we celebrated it with my dad's family. We went their and we watched some movies and ate. The lunch was delicious. We had potatoes, ham, corn, and some other things. Afterwards, we watched more movies. We also hung out outside. We went four wheeling too. We had a fire and roasted marshmallows which were amazing. We also played bags. That was fun. The next day, on Sunday, we went to church. After that, we went to celebrate Mother's Day on my mom's side at my grandma's house. We talked a lot about many random things. We also went on the computer and played bags too. We colored and did many random things. It was a fun day. You are probably wondering what I did for my mother on Mother's Day. Well, I will tell you. I wanted to give her breakfast and bed, but I couldn't because she was already up before I was. I bought my mom a key necklace, which she still hasn't worn yet. I don't think she will ever wear it, but at least I got her something. Another thing that I gave her was a hug. I should have made her a card, but I didn't I don't know why I didn't giver her a card though. Even though she hasn't worn it, I still think she liked it because she told me she she did. I hope she wasn't lying about that. If she was, that would be bad. I should have given her the receipt so that way, if she wanted to take it back, she could.

Boy's Track


I usually go to my cousin, Austin's, track meets. They are fun. I really like watching people jump over hurdles. Their faces look funny when they do them. It is kind of weird. I feel bad for the people that fall, it looks like it hurts, but it is hard not to laugh. I have also watched them do shot put and discus. They throw it really far. They are very strong. I think it is cool that they went out for track. It's kind of weird to see them run. I think some of them run weird, but that's how they run. Also, their faces look weird. It's hard to explain what their faces look like. Usually, their track meets got really cold. So, I usually brought a blanket or wore jeans to their track meets. At one of Austin's track meets, I had to watch his mechanical baby. I was kind of nervous, because I didn't know how to do it, but then my sister, Olivia, showed me how to do it if it cried. The baby didn't cry for me at all. It was funny. Then when Austin came, it started crying and he took care of it. It was funny to watch him. It was also kind of weird. He didn't have to run for a while, so he just took care of it. I think it cried about 5 times while he was there. When he had to leave again the baby didn't cry at all. I thought that was weird. After that, we got into my aunt's truck. She had her own baby, and Olivia and Austin had their babies. It was funny. We went through a McDonald's drive through, and you should have seen the lady's reaction. It was priceless.


Easter Weekend


What I enjoyed most about out Easter break was that we got to sleep in. The first day I think I slept in until about 10:30 am. That day was a lazy day for me. The next day, we had Easter on my mom's side. We had a very good dinner. We also played some card games with them. I didn't get anything for Easter, but my cousins got a really big surprise. The “Easter Bunny” pooped on their floor. He also gave them baskets of candy. On Saturday, we went to visit my great grandma. She is in a nursing home in West Union. It was nice seeing her. On Sunday, we had to get up at 5:00 am. I was very tired. We had to go to the early morning service which was at 6:30 am. Then after that, we went to the Easter breakfast that was ready downstairs. After that, we went back to our house and got ready to go to have Easter on my dad's side. I was very hungry when we got there, but the food wasn't ready yet. I had to wait about and hour and a half until we got to eat. The food was also very good. After that, we watched movies. First we watched Mary Poppins, then we watched Nanny McPhee, and the last movie we watched was Bug's Life. During the movies, I fell asleep. I was really tired that day. It was great to spend time with my family. Especially the ones I rarely see because they live so far away. I am glad that I got to see them. Again, I really enjoyed hanging out with them.

Illinois Part Two


After we were done eating, we all got ready. Then, all of the girls went shopping. First, they went to a furniture shop, so Olivia and I stayed in the car and listened to music. After that, we went to the mall. First, we went to JC Penny's. There wasn't anything there, so we went to Maurice's. It was very small, and there was also nothing there. After that, we went to Areopostal. Olivia got some shorts and a T-shirt. After that, we were hungry, so we stopped at a pretzel place called, Wetzel's Pretzel's. I shared one with my sister, and that filled us up right away. Then we left the mall, and the grownups went to another furniture. After that, we went back to my aunts house. They guys went out, and when we got back, they were gone. The door was locked, so we had to wait for about ten minutes until they came back. Good thing it was nice outside. When we got there, we went inside and Olivia, Tanner, and I went up to his room and watched movies and took pictures. We watched Despicable Me and The Sandlot. Then, we went downstairs and went to bed. The next day, we woke up and ate breakfast. We had eggs and fried potatoes. They were really good. Then we got ready and went to the zoo. It was free for the whole week, because it just reopened for the first time this year. We went in and looked around. We saw many different types of animals. My favorites were the giraffes and lions. We went to the lions, and when we took pictures, they just sat there and it was like they were posing. When we were done, they were, like, following us out. It was kind of freaky. The giraffes were funny. Their were four giraffes. The baby one was really cute. The dad, was the funny one. He went to the wall, and then he would put his neck and head back, he did that three times in a row. I got a video of it. We were all laughing. Then we had to go home. So we said god bye and went home.

Illinois Part One


This weekend, we went to my aunt's house in Erie, Illinois. It is about a three hour drive from here. We left our house right after school on Friday. Car rides are very boring to me, and for some reason, I always fall asleep when we take long rides. There is something just relaxing about it. I slept for about two hours, then I woke up, and went back to sleep again. That is a good way to spend three hours in a car. When we arrived, the rest of our family was already there. My grandparents, and my other aunt, uncle, and cousins were there. We haven't been to my aunts house in a year and a half. Everybody was so glad when we got there. The first thing we did was unpack. Right after that, they made supper, which was tacos. I hate tacos. I think that they taste gross. So I just made a sandwich. After that, we watched TV for a little bit and socialized. Everyone was really tired, so we all went to bed. My parents got my cousin, Tanner's, room. My grandparents got my aunt and uncle's room. Everybody else slept downstairs. My sister, Sadie, Owen, Brody, Russell, Lisa, (my other aunt and uncle) and I slept on the air mattresses. My aunt, Jodi, slept on the couch and so did Olivia. My uncle, Kendall, Tanner, and Olivia slept on the floor. The next day, we all woke up and had bacon and eggs for breakfast, it was really good. I thought that the bacon was a little too burnt though, so I only ate a little bit of that.

Thursday, March 8, 2012

School

Why does school have to start at 8:30? Don't the teachers say that we have to get a good nights sleep? I think that school should start around 10, because then, everyone should be well rested, and we could be more awake. It could go from 10-3. That sounds good. I think that it would possibly help kids pay more attention in class. Also, you teachers could sleep in as well. I am sure you teachers would like to sleep in just like the rest of us kids. Some teachers can be cranky sometimes, but who doesn't, everyone is cranky sometimes. I am not really a morning person. Another good reason to start school later is that way, we don't have to worry about waking up early, or oversleeping, because then, we have more time. Another thing, say you forgot to do some homework, you could finish that in time before you go to school. Or, if you forgot to charge you computer, you could charge it in the morning , and when it is time for school, it could be charged and all ready to go. Another thing about school, I already mentioned this earlier, but could you guys really work out a homework schedule or something. That would be great. Maybe you could do that on the computer, because then, if you accidentally forgot it, you wouldn't have to worry about it because it would be on the computer. Then you couldn't blame anyone for forgetting it. I think it would help a lot of people if you guys did that. Also, I think ,that even though I don't really like writing these, it does help me more with my writing skills.

My Shyness

I really don't know why I am shy. I just blush whenever I meet someone new, or have to go up in front of the class. I think I do this because I am afraid of messing up in front of everyone. I also think that if I do mess up, everyone will talk about it for a very long time. Just to let you know, I don't think that I can act, so sorry if I am a bad actor. I think you have seen me whenever I have spoken to a lot of people, or if you call on my name. My face gets really red, and then I get a loss of breath. Also, when I am done, I am so relieved. My relief is like when someone had to go to the bathroom really, really bad and then thye finally get to one and can go. That's like that relief I feel when I am not called on, or if I don't have to talk that day. Also, my hands shake really bad. I don't really know why I am shy. When I am with my friends, I am fine. I think that is because we all make mistakes, and laugh about them, but that is basically the same thing if I would do that in front of the class. It is just natural to get nervous and blush. I mean, we all make mistakes, so it shouldn't really make me nervous to do anything in front of my class. I hope that I can somedat get over my talking problem, because I have to talk it I want to get a job. Eventually that day will come.

Track

Well, everybody says I should go out for track, but I don't know. I do, but I don't. I don't really like running, but it would get me in shape. Also, I don't have to run, I could do shot put or long jump, or something. I have basically tried everything else, except cross country because I was in volleyball. There are many girls in our class that would be good in track, but I don't think that I would be one of them. If I went out for track, I would probably be one of the worst on the team. There would probably be a lot more people from different schools that would be better than me. Everyone has been saying that I should go out for it, but again I am not really sure about it. I don't really like running, but if someone was chasing me, I would run for, like, ever, or as long as it would take to get them from stop chasing me. I am not sure about jumping though, I haven't really tried to jump far. I rarely jump. Wouldn't it be weird if someone jumped everywhere they went? I think that it would. I don't know about shot put either. I might try it for this year and if I like it I will go out next year. I think I have tried every sport that I could this year except cross country. The sport that I liked the most was volleyball. The sport that I liked the least was basketball. I thought I was really bad, but my friends said that I was good. I disagree completely.

Highlights

I was so excited that I was getting highlights today. They are a blondish, carmel color. I didn't really know what to expect because this is my first time I got highlights. I think that they turned out really good, and I really like them. I was very nervous. I took before and after pictures. I got my highlights at 5:30. Madelyn's mom did my hair. It didn't cost my mom anything because it was my birthday present from Madelyn. If you don't know, my birthday is on March 24th. I will be a teenager this year! I can't wait. There is something weird about my sister's and my birthday. Mine is on March 24th, and hers is on March 27th. That means that Olivia and I are the same age for three days. I like that because then I am also the oldest, and not the middle child. She hates it because she is the same age as me. Well, back to me getting highlights. At first it was weird, because she put tinfoil in my hair, then used a brush with the color on it. After a while though, I got used to it. Right after she put the tinfoil in, I had to go under one of her hair dryers. I was under that for about, 9 minutes. Right after that, she took the tinfoil out and washed my hair. I don't know why, but for some reason it feels good to have someone else wash your hair. After she did that, she gave my hair a trim. Then she dried my hair. After she dried my hair, she straightened it, then I was done.






What I Think About Homework

I understand that the teachers are supposed to give us homework, but I think that you guys should discuss when you are going to give it. What I am saying is, that I feel like all of the teachers give u homework on the same day. Then the next day, there is no homework. The teachers should plan out when they give us homework so that we don't get stressed out about it. I dislike it when I have so much homework to do for almost every single class. It's terrible because then if we want to hang out with friends, we can't, or if we have to go to a family thing, then it just stresses me out even more. Also, I have to take a lot of things home in my backpack, and it hurts my shoulders, even though I don't have to walk that far. Plus the weight of our computers and if we have to take our instruments home, our instruments. I am relieved when I finally get home and get to take my bag off of my shoulders. I know that homework is important. It helps us learn more about things that we don't know and will make us smarter. All I am asking is for you teachers to work out something that will even out the homework, if you have to assign anything. I am sure I am not the only one who thinks that our backpacks are heavy when we have a lot of homework. Another thing is that, if we don't have a lot of homework, we can feel less stressed and if we won't have to stay up late at night, or wake up early in the morning.








Conformation

Even though I have to go to conformation every Sunday in the morning. It starts at 8:15. I wish that it would be on Wednesdays because then we don't have to get up so early every morning. Our pastor usually gives us a bunch of papers to do. I don't know why, but I always wait until Saturday to do it. I know I shouldn't, but I do. I guess I am a good procrastinator, because I am also finishing these blogs right now. I really need to get out of that habit. Anyways, the conformation group is made up of the students in 7th and 8th grade. We have to take it for two years. Another thing that we have to do is take sermon notes. We have to have two sermon notes each month. If you are wondering what it is, it is this. We have to take notes on the sermon that our pastor does in church. The sermons are very long. It is lent now and we have to have four sermon notes. I don't like that, even though I should be going to church every Sunday. Okay, back to conformation. It is supposed to only last an hour, but sometimes it last an hour and a half or even two hours. My parents don't like that. I have learned many things in conformation, but sometimes it seems like forever until he finally lets us out of his class. After I am done with conformation, I usually walk to my grandmas house, which is about one block away from the church. I usually stay there until my parents come to pick me up, or take me back to go to church.


About Me

My name is Hannah Marie McGee. I have brown hair and brown eyes. I also have braces and contacts. I wear make up. Everybody says that they wish they could have my eyes, because they really like them, but sometimes, I wish my eyes were blue. I am just like any other 12 year old. My birthday is coming up soon. It is on March 24th. I can't wait for my birthday, because I will finally be a teenager. I bet my parents can't wait to have two teenagers in the house. If you didn't realize before, the last sentence was sarcasm. I have a cellphone and an Ipod. Some people know what they want to be someday, or what their family is going to be like. I have absolutely no clue what I am going to be or who and when I will get married and have kids. Sometimes, I feel like I have to try extra hard to get my parents or friends to notice me. It gets kind of old, so sometimes I just stay quiet and go off and do my own thing. I feel like I am left out of my family sometimes, because they pay more attention to my other sisters than they do me. I wonder why that is. They only notice me if I do something very good, or if I do something very bad. Sometimes they yell at me for something I didn't even do, and I hate it. So, I just usually go to my room and listen to music after that. Another thing that I don't like is when my sisters just come into my room, and then they ask me random questions and it gets annoying sometimes. I don't really get any privacy in my house.

Friends

To me, there is always some kind of tension between my friends. One day, they seem like they don't like each other and ignore each other. Then the next day, they act like best friends and nothing ever happened. It is confusing. It is also hard, because when they do get mad at each other, they expect us to choose sides. How can you choose sides between two of your friends? So, I don't usually pick sides with them. One time, I got into a big fight with one of my best friends, and now, we only speak sometimes. It is hard, knowing that you guys used to be close, and now not so much. It is hard trying to forget everything that you guys did together. It's not like you can just forget everything that you did for them and they did for you. Another thing that is hard to do is forgive them for what they did. I forgave her, but I still can't trust her with some things. Then she gets mad at me for not telling her, and we get into a fight all over again. I wish she never did what she did to me, even though it isn't totally her fault for everything. I hate how she makes up lies about me, and then she goes around telling my other friends. Then they all come to me and asked me if I actually had done whatever she said, and they were all lies. Then she wonders why I get mad at her and I'm like, hello, it is kind of obvious what you did to me. Right now it is all good, but I'm afraid that something else will come up and then we will get into another fight.

My Fears

Do you know what I hate the most? Do you want to know? I don't really care if you do or don't because I am going to tell you anyways. My biggest fear is to be trapped in an elevator with a clown. I don't know why, but I just really hate clowns. They scare me. I think I have watched to many scary movies with clowns in them. Do you hate clowns? I think that clowns freak a lot of people out. Especially me. I really hate their masks, or make up. They look so unusual, odd, and weird. My sister once told me a freaky story. It was this. She said ,“Once, there was this girl and she went to go babysitting. The parents went out. The babysitter made the two children supper and then the kids wanted to play a game. So she went into the attic and when she did, she saw this weird clown statue, so she quickly left. She called the parents and told them how it freaked them out. The parents told the babysitter that they didn't have a clown statue and she told her to get the kids and her out of the house as quickly as possible. They said they were on there way. The cops were there when the parents arrived and they found that the babysitter and the kids were killed by the clown. The clown ended up being someone who had a mental illness.” Isn't that creepy? Ugh. I just really hate clowns. Maybe if they were in happy storied I would like them better. I really, really hate their smile, that is the creepiest thing about them.









How I Lost My Ipod

Yes, I again managed to lose something that cost a lot of money. It is a good thing I found it because my mother would have been really mad at me if I didn't find it. I got my Ipod as a Christmas present. On the day I lost my Ipod, it was a Saturday. I took it babysitting with me. I went babysitting with my friend, Madelyn. We had a good time, and we both fell asleep. I remembered bringing my Ipod to Madelyn's house after we were done babysitting. Another thing that I remember is playing on it at her house. I also stayed overnight at her house. After that, the next morning, we went to conformation. I went home and I was going to go play it, but then, I couldn't find it. I started panicking and thinking, not again. I told myself to go look for it so I did. My room was a mess after I looked around for it. Then I looked around the house and I couldn't find it. Then I remembered the last time that I had my Ipod, which was at Madelyn's house. I went over there to see if she had it, but they weren't home, so I went home. The next day, we had school, and I didn't really look for it that much anymore. I went over to Madelyn's house and searched in her room, but I couldn't find it. I was giving up, so I went back home. Then, the other day, I went to her house and sat in her chair. I was looking for the remote and put my hands in the sides. I felt something, so I picked ip up and wouldn't you know, it was my Ipod. I was so glad to see it, and it was dead. I am glad that I found my Ipod. My Ipod was lost for a week.

How I Lost My Cellphone

Have you ever lost anything for a month? Well I have. The only good thing is that I found it again. I lost my cellphone. I lost it for a month. Which is very weird. I think that I lost it sometime at the beginning of January. I was coming home from the boys basketball practice. We were running home just for the heck of it. I was with Olivia, Madelyn, and Emily. When I got home, I reached into my pocket for my phone, and I realized that it wasn't there. I started panicking. I asked them if they had it and they said no. So, we ran back up to the school and looked, but we still didn't find it. It was dark outside and I was really sad. Also, it started snowing, just my luck. In the morning, the ground was covered in snow, and I realized that if it was on the ground, I wouldn't work anymore. So I was really sad that I lost my phone. The only good thing was that I had my Ipod. So, I got a texting app on that and I was texting on that. After the snow melted, we were walking to school one day and all of a sudden, Christina sees something unusual. She picks it up and it was my phone. It still worked, but it was dead. The only thing that was damaged was my camera. Everything looks yellow. I am still glad that I have it though, because if I didn't, then I would have had to buy another phone. Which would have been really bad. I am so glad that Christina found my phone.

Hard Decisions

There are many difficult decisions that we have to make in our lifetime. One choice that you make could affect you life entirely. You could choose the wrong choice or you could choose the right choice. You have no idea what it could do to you. All that you can do, is believe that the decision you chose was the right one. There is absolutely no turning back after you made that decision. Even though you are a teacher and you are probably wondering, how do they have hard decisions, they are just kids. Even though we are kids, we still have hard decisions to make. Some of them could be involved with your parents. Some could be about having to deal with your friends. And others, could be about how you treat yourself. You can do many bad things to yourself, but you can also choose to do something good to yourself. You can eat right and exercise daily. You don't want to do the bad things to yourself. Whatever you do to yourself, can hurt you, a lot more than you realize. Also, with your friends, you can do bad things to them. You could gossip, have fights, or hurt them in some way. Do not do that. That can ruin your friendship. And with your family, don't choose to fight with them over something really stupid, like whether or not to do the dishes. Don't talk back to them, just listen to them and do what you are told. I have a friend, that talks back to her mom all of the time and they get in a bunch of arguments. I hope that that doesn't happen to anyone else.

Science Fair...


This year we had science fair. Science fair was on February 28th, 2012. You may think that this is the last day of February, but you are wrong. It is a leap year this year and we add one extra day to the calendar. Anyways, for science fair, we all had to pick something to do and figure out things about it. We could also have partners. My partner was Jaden Severson. We decided to do, “Which Colo Of Text Will Be Remembered Easier?” We thought that red would be the easiest because it stands out more than the other colors we were doing. So, Jaden and I tested 3rd grade and 8th grade. We tested thirteen males and fourteen females. We also got our board ready. For our board, we did our letters in blue. Another thing that we did was out the outline of the letter at the beginning of each of our words. For example, we just used the w outline instead of the actual letter w. Another thing that we did was cut the outside of the paper we were using with a special scissors that made the edges squiggly. Then we glued our information on it. Jaden and I also had to write a journal and a research paper. I think that the hardest thing we had to do was sort out all of our data and put it into graphs. It was so hard because we had a lot of data to sort out, and then we also had to put all of that information onto graphs. What we found out was that girls could read red better and boys could read green better. We also found out that blue was the hardest to read for both males and females.

Braces.. :/

I got braces last year in 2011. At first I was excited to get them, but after I got them, I disliked them very much. They hurt my mouth during the first week after I got them. Sometimes, they caused me to get major headaches. You also have to make sure that you floss, otherwise your braces get a bunch of food left in them and that can build up plaque.The fun part about braces is that you get to pick your own color that you want. You can choose to get one or two colors, but for some reason, they only let me choose one color. I don't like that at all. Another thing about braces is that you have to wear rubber bands. I don't like them either, but I have to wear them so I can get my teeth in line. When I first got them, they hurt a little bit because they were moving my teeth forward. I am used to them now. Another part that I dislike is when they change the wire. It just makes my teeth hurt all over again, and sometimes I have to take medicine to keep my teeth from hurting. They are also very sensitive after they change the wire. Even though I dislike braces more than I like them, I have to say that they have done a good job at moving my teeth to the correct alignment. Before I got my braces, I had a very, very bad overbite, or so I thought. My bottom teeth are actually to far back. I am glad that I have braces and that they make my teeth straighter, because I think that a lot of people want to have a good smile when they are older.

What I did this Saturday...

I went to my sister's basketball game on Saturday. They lost, but I don't remember what the score was. During the game, we got a call that my aunt, Amy, had her baby. It was a boy and they named him Emmett Randall Buddenberg. We weighed 8 pounds exactly and was 21 inches long. You know what's weird about the day he was born? He was born on my dad's birthday, February 11th. Isn't that strange? I think that it is. She had a C-section with him. I also went to Jaden's house after my sister's game. I ate at her house and then my parents came and picked me up to go and see the baby. They baby was very cute and he has brown hair and blue eyes. Everyone was making jokes about how the baby had more hair than my uncle, Josh. He also had this little football hat that we put on him. His skin was also very, very soft. My aunt was very sore. It took her a long time just to get off up of her bed. Another thing that we did that day was go to Madelyn's dad's graduation party. He just graduated from college. We didn't stay that long. All we did really was talk a little bit and eat. The cake that they had was fantastic. It was so delicious. After that, we went home. I was very tired, but I still didn't go to bed because I had to finish my confirmation. So after that I watched some TV and I also went on my computer. I also watched Saturday Night Live and fell asleep watching that.
