Hamsters and Heaven

So this week has been pretty much horrible, well i take that back Monday was okay not so bad but from tuesday on it was pretty bad. As many of us kno my baby 'Wilbur' has passed away, which I knew would come but I wasn't expecting it to come so soon. It was honestly like a bad dream, i know its a rodent or whatever and people are lame and laugh at me, i kno someone who did, but it was my little child that I really cared about and I really loved her. That same day I had a stupid lacrosse game that we lost horribly and my coach kept asking me whats wrong with me ect...to which i had many very mean things in my head to say but somehow I kept them in...not really sure how. This week has continued to not be as bad but it is really sad to walk into my room and see an empty cage without my little hamster hanging from the roof by 2 paws but other than the constant badgering of my coach that we need to be better and run more it is followed by sitting down for 30 minutes listening to her reminisce about her highschool basketball years. Besides that my sister is getting married, which i am extremely excited about and i'm pretty much the most important person in the whole wedding yea thats right be jealous i dare you. Graduation 2 months! SO excited.--Mary O

Into the Mystic

Here we go again my life is in the whirlwind, finally I have been able to take some stress off and just be relieved for the first time in months. Life has been kinda sucky lately but its getting better little by little, my new college classes are going pretty good, in my English class we wrote our first paper, and I got a 10 out of 10 on it which I've never done before, and we just finished our first big essay our grade is yet to come. My computer class is super easy but my prof. is super weird, I'm ahead of everyone in my class and I had to sit there for the whole class period and he wouldn't let me go home, it was pretty lame. But I'm doing an honors project for the class and everything so its not too bad i suppose. As far as lacrosse goes I'm not a fan of our new coach she's pretty lame, she said if we miss just one practice even if we have a good reason that we miss a game. Yea well once she realizes that I'm the only one who can play center she'll be in a real bind. It won't be like that for long though, after 2 years and 9 months, I have finally quit Island Water Sports. Something just hit me the other day and was like " you have nothing going here for you anymore." And i didn't...I was pretty much miserable most of the time and I never get to do any events with skateboarding anymore so i was pretty bummed. Having to go into Mark's office and talk to him about quitting was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do and it was even harder to spit out I want to give my two weeks. Now that its done though I feel sooo much better plus I got a job at the new skatepark in Coral Springs and I LOVE it there, they are so nice and it is soo fun I can't wait to start. So thats the update so far on my life. but things are just gonna get more crazier as the months go on.

Did ya ever?

So have you ever had that friend that messed up your relationship completely? and you tried to save your friendship by saying HEY don't do it! and they were like yea whatever shut up and then you were not friends for awhile THEN they came back and apologized and wanted everythign the way it used to be? Yea well I have a friend like that, and I agreed to give her another chance or whatever, but not she's attatched to my hip and calls me 2038508 times a day and sends 023850834085 million text messages. What do you even say, its not like you can go and say Hey...I think we need to take a break...psh yea right.

Lacrosse has started and everyone seems to be completely out of shape its extremely sad. No one is motivated yet and my coach is a slacker with practice.

I'm a strong believer in doing what you think will be best for your life. I think it was destined for me to go to PBCC so that I could meet my favorite wonderful amazing English teacher whom I love. But now that i have fulfilled that destiny I would now like to move on to greater better things since now it is my life and I think if i want to go to school I should be able to go to the school where i want. Its not like I want to go to Princeton for 2 years or anything, its the local University so leave me alone. So lets think beyond the extra pricing and little do dads but think into your parents not agreeing on what you do with your life and having Zero percent of support behind you, atleast not from your parents and then think of having your Favorite most wonderful English teacher's support and then your wonderful magnificent sister behind you, plus the friend here and there. I can't help but be extremely angry that my father would refer to me as being Full of Crap for wanting to go to a better bigger school...lets rethink this...Crap is a common word I would say many people use on a daily basis..we think it to mean that your idea is stupid, this day sucks, this product is useless..but CRAP would also be another word for SHIT..now SHIT just kinda cuts right through you..If someone came to you and said..hey your full of SHIT you would be like oh my gosh someone just said i was full of shit...so instead of saying that my ideas, my aspirations, my goals are full of crap you might as well just cross out the crap and add the shit.

Goodnight Good Memory

Last night was definitely one of the saddest nights of my life. We had our last swim team banquet and I had to pass down my "captainism" it was one of the hardest things to hear be announced. This is my team and my coach and I'm the coaches pet, and now there are these new people taking my responsibility that has been mine for 3 years. I don't know it seemed like it was never going to end, its something that I have loved to do and I just didn't want to give it up. I was announced as the Assistant Coach for next year, but it just isn't the same feeling. I'm excited to coach and everything but its not like i get to jump in the water with my hot pink cap anymore and play sharks and minnows. I'm excited for the days to come and to see what my life developes into but I think I really see coaching in my future right now, and who knows what else I think it'll be a lot of fun. But i am really missing the old days right now and its like my life is speeding up and the good memories are being left behind. It sucks that we can't get those days back even though there were some bad ones.

Watch out i'm Growin' Up

Oh goodness,...so I am done with my last Districts meet EVER, and I had never been so tired in my life. 4 events, with 4 to do in finals. I am so happy I swam my fastest time ever in my 100 free a good 57.78 sure its not all time but hell i've never swam a 57 before. I finished 2nd over all in my 50 free with a low crappy 26 and I finished 3rd overall in my 100 with the 57.78 we also finished 2 2nds i believe in our 200 and 400 free relays. I'm pretty stoked theres a bunch of us going to Regionals this Saturday...its going to be pretty crazy. But who knows whats going to happen with another hurricane tomorrow. They say its going to be 55 degrees tomorrow, but i think there full of crap.

Burnt Pizza and a Frappachino

Sometimes you just don't really know what to do next. I think i'm going through a crisis but not like a mid-life crisis...obviously I'm not there yet...but maybe like a 1/4 crisis...I'm at the point where swimming is ending..swimming has been my life for pretty much forever. Since I was five anyway. I love my team this year there so cool and even though there are a few that maybe i don't get along with so well I still am happy to have the people there. Soon Swimming and Lacrosse are going to be over, and then i graduate in May..it's like I don't even know what to do with myself. Soon I'll be gone and yeah i'll definitely keep in touch with some people but its like drama sucks but it keeps life interesting and you laugh about it all the time. And sure theres drama everywhere you go, but theres nothing like highschool drama, and there is NOTHING close to highschool swimming. Some of my best memories come from swimming I cant even begin. Everything I start off with is like "well when I was a freshman during swim season" or "well if you were a freshman MY first year of highschool" Its funny I constantly find myself helping others now, its like okay I can kind of see what its like to be an adult/parent now, I have all these friends coming up to me telling me these sad stories of whats going on and I'm like ohh well dont worry i've been there this is what I did and this is how it'll end. I'm tutoring a younger generation on how to get through high school and it actually works...amazing. I never thought I would make it through highschool its like me going to college is a myth..never will happen..I saw my sister go through highschool and college graduation and hell now i'm here. How weird. I just don't know what to do with myself anymore..I know May to others might seem so far away but to me I think its just flying up..soon I'm going to be standing in a robe with a rolled up piece of paper in my hand saying thank you for waking up early and dealing with your mother every morning you are now entitled to go to school away and deal with older new highschool kids who think there cool now cause there a grade up. College really isn't that bad though I suppose, I mean going to school is fun for me cause I observe..I mean you walk into one class and I'm like theres the jew, the hoe, the hoes bFF, the smart kid, the cool girl, the skater out of place kid, the med student, and the girl who doesn't talk to you EVER. Then you walk into the cafeteria and oh my gosh its a whole watering hole of them, you've got the game room full of guy DORKS, then just tables and tables of different kids. Its fun..I enjoy it but I just can't wait to go to St. Augustine that will be insane. __Mary O
