That's 50. 50 things I want to do in my lifetime. Some I could accomplish tomorrow. In fact, I just discussed with my parents how I will most likely apply to 2 Ivys (Dartmouth & Princeton) just to see if I get in. If I do, we'll take it from there. But for now, it's just for fun. Some are in my wildest dreams, but knowing my go-getter personality, I will do what it takes if I really want it. Anyway, it's fun to dream and think of all the things this world has to offer. Hopefully, some of you can take part in these adventures with me. Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all you soldiers; we love you and appreciate everything you sacrifice for us.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

5.29.2010



Y'all, tonight, I felt like a true native Texan sittin' in the bed of a Ford pickup truck, wearin' blue jean shorts and my high school tshirt, listenin' to country music while watchin' a baseball game as mosquitoes ate me alive. As Sterett said, I felt like I was in a Taylor Swift music video. To make the night even more sweet, we won the game 5-4 and are advancing to the next round of the playoffs. Our rival team, the Stratford Spartan, lost today resulting in our regional match-up being against Clements High. My inner cheerleader shines in these intense playoff games. So as the school year comes to an end (and for the many seniors on the team their high school career comes to an end), the baseball season continues. One more win and we advance to state. That's Mustang baseball at its finest. Forget those 'stros, it's time to cheer on the 'stangs.
DAS MEH BOIZ...

Seniors Reign Supreme

5.25.2010

it's about time. after constantly being labeled as "fish", then being the completely irrelevant sophomores, and most recently, surviving the infamous junior year, memorial's class of 2011 is finally in its final year of high school.
just a film presentation, physics and pre-cal final away from summer.
in honor of our new position at the top of the monarchy we will be sporting miu mius and other mexican apparel as senors and senoritas tomorrow. and the following day the theme is "senior citizens." i won't make any promises that i will be participating in that trend.
so wish me luck as i complete my 6th out of 7 semesters of high school. on to the home stretch!

Miscellaneous Matters

5.14.2010



countdown: three weeks. that's three weeks until summer. three weeks until i am textbook free. three weeks until my days at hays mcconn commence. three weeks until i am officially a senior in high school. most importantly, three weeks until the end of junior year. it's not quite over yet; so, i think i'll postpone my reflection on the year as a whole until i gain complete liberty from the hallways of memorial.

so until then, i'll discuss two of my guilty pleasures. one's old. one's new.

one ::: the gossip girl season finale is this monday. and though this season was sub-par compared to one and two, i'll admit that the past few eps have had me on the edge of my seat.
i mean, Derena round 18?! didn't see that one coming. can't decide if i like it.
jenny. go away. don't come back. ever. you and your horses mane are blinding my eyes.
if blair and chuck aren't together again, don't expect a post for a long time seeing that i will be mourning for quite awhile..
oh and i'll finish with this: it is extremely likely that i will be in paris when leighton, blake, and ed are shooting season four there. nbd. let that one marinade. too bad lana baumgartner is ditching me to go back to tejas.

two ::: i love itskingsleybitch on youtube. his bitter outlook on life is so terribly amusing. such a guily pleasure.
"are we in a sauce drought?!"
"and when you were seriously walking like a sloth two seconds before and now you're a cheetah"
"i'm sittin up in here with all this bipolar weather..."
"it was CLEARLY 103 degrees"
"i hate when you go but a movie, like i did, i got Sorority Row, and then they have it in this stupid ass cover"
"i hate when people give me a card for my birthday that sings to me. because that shit is not cute."

anyway, he blabs on various topics including birds, his zoo visits, the repetition of songs on the radio, the failure of jimmy johns to live up to their superior sandwhich status, bipolar weather, miley cyrus, ke$ha and her feathers, and then some more birdz. check him out. you need a little laughter in your day.

May Music Mayhem

5.08.2010


It's been awhile since I've exposed the latest and greatest of my iTunes library. I actually had a little glitch with my iTunes library..such a stuggle, I know... but now it's all fixed. I think this is a perfect exposé that demostrates my w i d e range in music tastes. From music that only middle schoolers should be listening to, to rap, to extreme alternative, here's a peak to my recent purchases! Enjoy and happy mother's day!
