Bardstown is "Da Bomb.."

The day was stammering along like any normal high school day... until 12 o' clock. My fourth period class is Premiere Advanced Chorus- the Chorus Room is in the middle school.... (If you know anything about Bardstown School System's campus, you know that the Elementary, Middle and High school are all very close.) So, as we are proceeding along with class the high school principal walks in and tells the class to "stay put" after the bell and they will release later on. We automatically new something fishy was going on... and not good fish either.. Not too long after that we discovered the whole high school had evacuated into the middle school gym! Something was definitely going on..
News travels fast in a small town....... Even though we were "locked" in the chorus room, the smart students we are(technology helped too;) soon discovered there had been a bomb threat!
First, I would like to state....... the middle and elementary school are literally 20 feet away from the high school..... I don't think the students were moved far enough if there had been a bomb...but hey... What do I know?
*big sigh*

So, while our class of approximately 30 students were confined to our chorus room...after lunch hours I might add.... we were becoming quite cranky and bored. So....some intelligent senior girl (:)) requested the idea that the teacher pull down the projector and allow the class to play "Just Dance" on Youtube. I must say, it was a good idea! It was fun and kept us entertained whether we were watching people dancing or dancing ourselves!
Yes, our teacher is amazing and joined us in a couple dances!

After all was said and done, there was no bomb found..We are lucky nothing too awful happened and that we were able to make the bad situation and make it into something enjoyable!

My Own Kind of Paradise

Have you noticed that math and science majors have a perfect job match? For example, if you major in Dentistry, you will probably be a Dentist. If you major in Architecture, you will probably be an Architect. I think this is why I have always be pulled toward majoring in Dental Hygiene... Then I could be a Dental Hygienist. Silly me, I'm not even exceptionally good at math, or science! I have always been an English junkie... (well...more than math or science..) When I received my ACT scores, my mom and I talked about how I should search for a different major...perhaps in an English field. I did for a while, but I always went back to Dental Hygiene- I have a thing for teeth and smiling!
Recently, I was accepted into Bellarmine University! I was looking through the majors they offered and found out they do not offer Dental Hygiene .University of Kentucky, my number one pick, also does not offer Dental Hygiene as a major. In fact, University of Louisville is the only school I found that does!
I was feeling very discouraged, because Louisville would be fantastic! But, right now, my heart is set in Lexington! I am really looking into UK. So I decided to look for a different major, or a major similar to Dental Hygiene. While looking through the list of majors UK offers, I came across Linguistics. ...Honestly, I didn't even know what it meant. So I looked it up..on Google, of course! While I am reading, I come to realize, this major is perfect for me. It is exactly what I am interested in, and what I am good at- compared to math or science;)
The only problem I had now was finding a career to follow up on a linguistics major. At first, this was a struggle, but when I read about a Speech Therapist, I was in awe. I don't know why I never thought of the idea before! I like to think that it could possibly be a calling..
After a day of researching linguistics, anthropology, and speech therapy.. I think I may have finally found my cup of tea!

On December 9, 2009 I was fortunate enough to get braces on for my 16th birthday!
On September 29, 2011 the braces that formed my new smile were removed.
For the first year and a half I had my braces, I was nothing but excited to finally get them off. But the last month before I got my braces taken off, I was so nervous. I actually started having nightmares about my teeth going back to before I had my braces..Yeah, I know, lame, right? The night before I got my braces off, my friends assured me that everything would be fine and I should be excited. But I was not excited. Not until the very minute I walked into my orthodontist office was I excited.The receptionists asked me if I was ready and by the ladies saying, "Look, she already can't stop smiling..." "She's always smilin'.." I assume I looked excited, regardless of my fear. (By smiling all the time, I can easily cover any negative emotion;)
After the receptionist giggled and talked, I did become a little excited, and soon enough I was called back to get my braces off!
I walked out of the orthodontist with a straight smile I NEVER imagined I would have. I am beyond thankful for the smile my grandparents paid for. Call me coincided if you must, but my smile is the one thing I am most proud of, and I am no longer at all ashamed to wear my smile all of the time!

Date Night.... with MY BEST FRIEND

So, this has not been my week AT ALL. I have spent over $100 on a "cheap" pre-paid phone, I still have not been paid back any of my money, and I miss my friends..
But tonight, my best friend Kelsey and I went out to dinner at Chili's.. I was SO excited to finally eat corn on the cob since my braces have came off..The first time in 2 years! It was delicious. During our dinner conversation I mentioned "The World's Best Lollipops." If you have not tried one of these things, YOU HAVE TO. I am snacking on one right now as I blog. We decided to make the trip across the street to Wal-Mart to buy 10 suckers! I swear, we looked like we were 5 picking out our favorite flavors.
After checking out, we were making our way back to the car when Kelsey noticed that inside of a claw machine there were Angry Birds. (Angry Birds is my new obsession, and she knew I would want one) Kelsey is a claw machine master, so I proceeded to ask her to win me an Angry Bird for a special friend of mine!
(Which is a little awkward, but that is a whole different blog post;)
My special friend is the one who introduced me to Angry Birds and I thought it would be a sweet gift. She scrapped up a dollar in quarters and I had 50cents. After she failed the three attempts she had, I reached into my pocket to find 50more cents! I was ecstatic! But not quite as ecstatic as when the claw picked up the bird!!!! But....it dropped it...
I was determined to get this BIRD! So I pulled out another dollar..... still, no bird.
We probably looked like two crazy angry birds jumping and screaming at that machine!
I knew a friend was cashier-ing at the time so I ran to him to ask for a dollar....he gave us two!
So we knew, these were the last couple chances...
Soon, we were down to our last 50cents..... we noticed another angry bird very close to the winning hole...so she made the spur decision to go for that bird on the last try. GUESS WHAT!!!


I think ya know I like ya a lot...

The past few weeks have really made me start thinking..
So, I use to have the best stuffed animal EVER, he was a trooper...he stayed around for almost two years! I was so in love with it and when I lost the stuffed animal, I was devastated.. I can honestly say that I have never felt so low.. I gave everything I had to this stuffed animal..
But now, after 5 months of contemplating nights, long talks with my girls, and making myself realize I can do better (and that I definitely deserve better) I am over that stuffed animal. The relationship between that stuffed animal and I taught me a lot and I'm glad it happened so I can do things more "right" the next time around.
So I've talked to many stuffed animals in the past 5 months and of course I have not opened up quickly, I am not ready at all, but apparently I am the problem because every single one of the stuffed animals have gave me the boot! Which I have not had a big problem with because that means none of them were the right stuffed animal anyways.. But it has shot down my moral..
That is why, today, and yesterday, and the day before...okay, the past couple of weeks, I have watched myself very closely with this new teddy bear I have found.. (Did you notice I've changed from stuffed animal to teddy bear? That is because there is something very different about him..)
All I know is that he is such an amazing different that I am scared to mess something up..
So I need help... I don't want to make myself completely vulnerable to this teddy bear, but I'm scared the guard I have up may push him away.. Even though the teddy bear understands the situation.
I even feel quite silly blogging about my new teddy bear..but I think that may mean he is special.. When we first started talking I had no idea he would become so important to me, even just as a friend teddy bear..
I wish everything could stay the way it is right now between us..

For The Halloween Season

There was an average working girl working late one night at Papa John's. She was cleaning, a nightly routine to stock the cart with sauces and peppers. After placing the items on the cart, the average working girl wandered to the back of the store to break down some boxes. When returning to the front of the store the average working girl noticed that the container of cinnamon was taken off of the cart and placed on the counter. Curious, she checked if "Cinnie-Sticks" were ordered, and as she assumed there was not an order. The average working girl brushed the happening off, nervously concluding that she had forgotten to put the cinnamon on the cart.
A few days later, the average working girl was cheesing pizzas. She was running a little low on cheese so she proceeded to the "walk-in" to gather a new box of cheese. After the average working girl put the new cheese in the make-line container she tossed the box to the back of the store. The average working girl was not prepared for what was about to happen next. Before she knew it, the empty box was launched back at her!! After quickly placing the next pizza in the oven, the average working girl briskly walked to the back of the store, expecting to see a co-worker walking away from the scene. But, no one was around. The average working girl proceeded to ask co-workers if they thought they were funny....none seemed to know what the average working girl was referring too.

Moral of the story.... Papa John's is haunted.

hahahah! I'm just kidding, a fellow driver admitted about half an hour later to playing the funny trick on me. He came up to me, the average working girl, and asked, "What do you think about that box flying back atcha?"
Good one! It was a nice little prank....
Although I still do not have an explanation for the cinnamon.

let's give them something to talk about...

There is no doubt about it that I love love love to blog. But for the last month or two, I feel as if there is NOTHING to blog about. I suppose that makes my life boring and I can stop right now..

hahah...Yeah right. I could just ramble on about silly stuff that has happened..but I don't even think any of that stuff is interesting enough to blog about.. My oh my, I am boring..
hmm..There must be SOMETHING...
think think think..
Ah ha!
Well, I've come close with someone{:)} and he has introduced me to Angry Birds. I know I am quite a few months behind, but the game is indeed very addicting. My iPod told me that I have been playing for five hours and I was in shock.

That wasn't very interesting either...ha..
Oh well, I am very content right now....even if my life may seem a bit boring.. (:
