Whew. Hey :)


Holy crap guys, I am so sorry I haven't written in so long! Things have been a little crazy over here, and my internet only works when it wants to, so yeah.

Where to being?! Ooh, I'll start with the thing I'm most excited about; Joey.

First, as promised, I must explain the moderately confusing nature of my last post. I was really confused, because I was starting to have feelings for one of my really good friends, Joey. I was so upset because I didn't want to ruin our friendship by telling him how I felt.


I ended up telling him about my felling towards him. Unfortunately I waited until about a week before he left for basic training for the air force. It's alright though. That's where he is now, basic training in Teas, it's been two weeks, and he'll be there for eight. Then he goes to tech school in Missouri for ten weeks. Anyway, I get to go see him at his basic graduation, thanks to his dad who was kind enough to offer to let me tag along. I must admit guys, I think he is "the one". I mean, I don't plan on marriage or anything like that anytime soon, but I'm pretty sure I've found him. It's kind of funny, we went to high school together, and he asked me to go out with him several times and I always said no. lol.

What else..

Well, this isn't such happy news. My Aunt thinks my grandmother has alzheimer's disease. She repeats herself over and over, forgets everything, all kinds of stuff. I guess it happened just all of the sudden. They lived together in Florida, but after my Uncle passed away, they bought a house in Tennessee, and now my Aunt is thinking about selling it and just staying in Florida. I wish they would stay in Tennessee instead, because that way if she needed us we could be there in less than six hours. Anyway, my little sister, Katelyn, goes to stay with my Aunt and Grandmother every summer, she has since she was a baby. This year she's having a really hard time, she's too young to fully comprehend what is going on with my Grandmother, and she always calls crying. She's coming home soon, next Friday in fact. All three of them are in Florida at the moment, and they'll be driving up to Tennessee Tuesday, then leave for Ohio Thursday. I'm really excited to have her home, she left in May.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but I finally decided what I want to do in school. I want to study Medical Information Technology. It's not exactly my passion, but a job in that field would have excellent job security, and the benefits are amazing. I figured I would take photography and automotive classes also, which are my passions, and just make a hobby out of them. *shrug* So I am going to take my placement test for college this upcoming week. I've taken it before, it's just a basic math and writing test, but I'm still nervous. The reading and writing part are really easy, but I'm terrible at math and will undoubtedly be placed in a remedial class. Oh well.

OOOH! Guess what? I haven't had a seizure in nearly three weeks! I'm having some pretty gnarly anxiety, and I'm still fainting, but haven't had any convulsions or anything! Yay! I haven't really done anything different. I just started paying attention to my warning signs and then laying down or whatever. I am so happy, I hope they stay away so I can get a job and my license! Wish me luck!

Ugh, it has been so hot here. With the heat index, it's been about 110 degrees (F) all this week. It's absolutely miserable. We really haven't been going anywhere, since gas is so expensive and the air conditioning in the SUV sucks gas pretty bad. I hope it rains soon, to cool things off.

Well, that's all for now I suppose. There's more but I'm afraid my internet is going to cut out. I hope everyone has been doing well!

    Good luck with your math test.

    It sounds like things are working out quite well for you with no seizures, Joey, and your kid sister coming home.

    Sorry to hear the weather's so hot. Ours has cooled right down to about 74 which is nice. We go on vacation next week - we are heading to France and are going camping. Temperatures over there are currently about 90, so I hope it cools of a bit. I can't believe you have to put up with 110 - I have no idea what that must be like. Does everybody have air condiitoning in their homes where you are?

    Let us know how you get on with your placement test. Good luck and take care.
