Last First Day

Yesterday, August 15, was my last first day of high school!!! I have to say there is just something different about going back to school when you're a Senior. It still feels kinda unreal right now...but I'm loving every second of it! I also got my schedule just the way I want it. Yesterday in 5th, I got called to change it. (Thank goodness!) I now have late arrival AND still have my early release! Yay! I had the best first day ever!!!

This morning I woke up with vertigo. It was awful. I have never had it before, but my dad has...so thankfully we had medicine for it. Being so dizzy and sick to your stomach like that is crazy. It makes you feel just plain awful. Thankfully the medicine kicked in fast, and I was able to go to school. I was just super tired all day from the medicine. I think you're also supposed to sleep the vertigo off...but I didn't want to miss the 2nd day of school! I came home this afternoon and slept hard for quite a while.

Ready to see what tomorrow brings!

Back to routine

Had another lazy day today...but it was great! We grilled out this afternoon...grilled chicken and ribs. My favorite!

Gotta get in bed pretty early tonight. Tomorrow starts my week of getting up super early until next Saturday. It's pretty much official...summmer's over. Back to routine starting now!

Ready for a great day at church tomorrow. Gotta get an afternoon nap in forsure! :)

Hope you've had a fantastic weekend!

Moving on...

Well, the time has come and just about everybody is starting to move off to college. It's crazy that even some of my friends are about to move off. What's even crazier is that I know it could be me next year. Not sure how things are going to work out for me with moving off to college, but you never know. Kinda weird to think about!!

I had a wonderful Friday spent at home! Had a lazy day but also got a few things dones. Got my Jeep washed and all cleaned up!! Yay!

Have a great weekend! :)

And so it begins....

First of all...let me say I had another shopping trip today. Found tons of cute stuff on sale...that I can wear to school! Yay! :)

Also got some more school supplies today. Office depot had some great stuff on sale. As in $4.00 pens for $1.00! Yes, a dollar! I love good deals like that. They had yellow sale signs everywhere!! We went to get some pencils that I love and can only find there...but we came out with more than just pencils. Haha :)

^Those are my absolute favorite pencils! Got 2 packs...should last for a while!

I am so excited about Senior year. I got my schedule tonight (NOTE: LAST HIGH SCHOOL SCHEDULE!!!), and it isn't too bad at all!! I pretty much have 3 free classes (as in I will be a teacher's aide most likely). It looks like I have early release as of right now. Some things might change. Not 100% sure at the moment. But, so far, I can't complain. I think I have finally learned that you can't worry about stuff like this in high school. You just gotta go with the flow on stuff like schedules...and be PATIENT. Haha. I seem to have several classes with lots of friends...so that's another plus. Can't wait to see what all this year has in store.

So, I'd say it has begun...all the lasts are headed my way...fast!!

Yay for Seniors 2012!! :)

Back to Organization

Time to get everything back in order and ready for school.

Just a few things on my to do list:
1.) Get my closet cleaned up and cleaned out.
2.) Get my desk nice and neat.
3.) Get all of my school supplies ready for the first day.
4.) Put all boxes, user guides, etc from my laptop and laptop accesories in a safe place.
5.) Put all of my new summer pictures either in frames or on my memo boards...or in a photo album.

I have definitely let my room stay not so organized this summer...but it's time to get back to organization. So that's what I'm going to start working on this afternoon.

Happy Wednesday! :)

P.S. - Finally got my summer reading book today...wish me luck! Ha!

Day of Shopping!

I had one of my last few shopping days of the summer today!! Mall, Bridge Street, and Red Robin for lunch!! :) Got a few things I've been looking for. I have had trouble finding dress code appropriate clothes for school this year though. Now don't get me wrong, I don't go around showing everything I have. Promise! But, all the summer clothes either seem to be

1.) One shoulder - super cute.
2.)Strapless - comfortable and cool for the summer.
3.) Not 3 fingers wide (talking about tank tops)
4.) Too short - for a girl with long legs like me everything looks shorter than it really is.
5.) Racer back

Everything seems to violate the dress code one way or another. :/ But, I have found several things I can make work for these really hot days...so I am thankful for that!

Below are some of the things I wish that we could wear to school....

See...nothing bad!! Just cute summer clothes. But, unfortunately all of those things are not in the dress code. It is what it is. Haha

Annnnnd....here is my drape picture!! Nothing says SENIOR more than the traditional drape pic! Ha. (A little blurry and distorted on here...but not in person.)

This time next week...

Yep, it's true. This time next week I will be sitting in a classroom (probably like 3rd period). It will be my last first day of high school with MANY new things coming my way. It's back to homework, studying, & teachers...but also friends and making more memories. I really want to make this year count. I don't want to look back and have regrets about Senior year. After all, it is my last chance!

Wow. I can't even imagine what all is going to take place this year. Everything I do this year in high school...will be my last. That is kinda scary!

Happy Monday!

Wireless Printer!

Well, it's officially the last week of summer before school starts! Hope it's a good one!

I did get a wireless Cannon printer yesterday. It's all set up in my room and working just fine with my laptop...which I still LOVE! :) We went out with the family to celebrate my granparent's 50th anniversary last night. Went to church this morning, and now just relaxing at home. This is our last week of Summer Connections at church...back to normal Sunday nights next week!

I think I'm getting ready for fall. I have NEVER wanted to see summer end, but this year I'm really thinking fall sounds nice! I'm kinda getting ready for some football! And those cool fall days.

Have a great week!

No Power, No Sleep

Yesterday was my last day of my summer job! I had it all planned out to sleep in late this morning...but that didn't work at all. It was very stormy here last night. I went to bed around 10:30....and by 11:30 pm I was up for pretty much the rest of the night/morning. Why? Because we lost power, and when we lose power, I don't sleep. I HAVE to have my air purifier to sleep. I can NOT sleep without it. The second it goes off, I wake up. It's just something about that sound! Haha. So this morning around 5 (after tossing and turning all night), I decided I would just give up. Needless to say, I only got about an hour of good sleep last night. This morning, we went and got Jack's for breakfast. Then we headed to my Mema and Granddaddy's house...they had power. :) We took our stuff to get ready for the day. I had a hair cut appointment this afternoon, and we also did some school supplies shopping. We got power back around 2:45 this afternoon!

On another note, Mom and Dad bought me a laptop, and it came yesterday!!! I was so excited to get it. I absolutely LOVE it! :)

Happy Friday Eve!
