The City, and The Bachelor.

I completely, and whole-heartedly despise Adam.

What kind of person could seriously do that to a girl?

I just feel so sorry for her. She goes out of town, hoping and assuming that she can trust her boyfriend. I mean, how is she supposed to know that he is an overgrown pig? The poor girl.

I also feel sorry for Caterina. She had no idea that Adam had a girlfriend! Through her eyes, she was simply kissing a single guy. She didn't think that she would be haunted by this later on, I'm sure. She seems like an honestly sweet girl.

For her to tell (I cannot remember her name) that she kissed her boyfriend (Adam) unaware of the fact that he was NOT single, was just an enourmous sign of loyalty, and courage. Not to mention honesty.

But (whatever her name is) didn't believe Caterina. She believed Adam. However, I know she knows the truth in her heart. I can totally see the saddness in her eyes. Besides, who would make up a random story about kissing a guy? She's CERTAINLY not the type of girl that would intentionally hurt some one. Obviously.


Jay should understand where Whitney is coming from. After the things she has witnessed, and watched her friends go through this week, she is sure to question her own relationship. It isn't that she doesn't trust him, at all. It's the fact that her eyes have been opened to how heartbreak can be so unexpected, and un-prepared for. Of course she's going to worry!

Oh, and now that he shaved his beard, he's super ugly. It's quite sad. He was flawlessly delicious eye candy. Not anymore.

Moving on now.

The Bachelor. (Can't spell it, I know).

I literally cried when he sent Nikki home. She was in an ELEVEN year relationship, filled with compassionate love, only to wake up one Friday afternoon, to her boyfriend telling her he never wanted to get married. Wow.

It's like she finally put her guard down, and learned to love again. Then he completely threw her away, and sent her home.

She was in the lemo, talking about how she didn't know how to get any smarter, or any prettier. She didn't understand why she keeps getting rejected, and nobody wants her. I really just wanted to jump through the television screen, and give her a big hug. It was super saddness.

Aside from all of that saddness, I was even more depressed when I discovered One Tree Hill didn't come on tonight. Hmph.

Anyway, I have to go brush my teeth, and get ready for bed.

We are learning how to use those STUPID "Ready or Not Tots".

I'm seriously going to commit suicide.

We actually have to carry a plastic baby to all of our classes, and home.

That's the STUPIDEST thing I have ever heard.

I'll take my zero now.

Goodnight, all.

Instant Access.

So, in case you are unaware, I have the most wonderful Bible anyone in the history of this thing we call Earth, could have ever layed their eyes on.

Yes, it's that amazing.

It has all these cool quiz-type questions, called "Q&A", and for those of you who are somewhat mentally challenged, that stands for "Question&Answer".

Also, "Dear Jordan" letters, which all in all, is an advice collumn having to do with spiritual, and or, religious issues.

Then of course the "To The Point" articles, the "We Believe" sections, and the occasional, "Panoroma" informatives.

But the best of all, and my personal favorite, the "Instant Access" summary's. (I'm completely sure how to spell "summarys", or is it, "summaries"? ah, idk.)

They are so cool. Sometimes they basically just sumarize what is going on in that chapter, and compare it to real life. Or sometimes they just give you advice that is commonly needed, throughout the world.

So, this one basically jumped out of the page, and smacked me in the face. So, I'm going to share it with you.

I, personally, think it is quite clever. So, here goes:

Instant Access
"Maybe you've been brought up in a Christian home. Mom and Dad take you to Church every week. You pray at every meal, and Mom and Dad even talk about God around the house. That makes a christian. Right? Wrong. Going to church doesn't make you a christian any more than going to a barn once a week makes you a cow. You have to be born a calf, to be a cow, just like you have to be born again to be a Christian. Only your own personal faith in Christ counts. Why not trust him now?"

Isn't that awesome?

Again for those of you seeming to be confused (mentally challenged), when it says "born again", it is referring to baptism.

Anyway, I thought that was just about amazing, and I surely hope you did, as well.

I am now going to go and take a shower, then get ready to watch Gossip Girl, The City, and possibly The Bachelor. (I'm not sure how to spell that one, either).

Thank you for reading, if you did.

I havn't written in a blog in a while. I havn't had the time, I'll admit. School keeps me busy, along with my crazy friends, and also crazy family.

But seeing as, I've already gotten all of my homework done, and all my coming tests studied for, I'm taking this oppertunity to write.

Life's been good lately, I suppose. I've come to realize that I have no problem with school in itself, it's simply athletics, the last period of the day, that seems to bludgenly murder me, bring me back to life, then kill me again.

Especially today. On Monday's Wednesday's, and Friday's, we lift. For most people, this is no big deal, and sometimes taken as an easy day, but for me, it's a living nightmare, seeing as I couldn't lift if my freaking life depended on it. I'm not sure why it's so much harder for me, than everyone else.

Coach Fuentes says that I'm "working against my momentum", by bringing the weights down too slowly. Once they reach my chest, my muscles give out, making it nearly impossible for me to lift it back up. Which to me, seems entirely true. What else could it be?

Anyway, that's beside the point. Today we did Pliometrix, with MR. Coach Fuentes. He does enjoy working us hard. I'd say I just about died sixty times, today. Afterward, I could hardly move my muscles. They felt like painful noodles, if that makes any since.

Enough about athletics.

A somewhat big event recently happened. The one and only, Winter Formal. It wasn't near as bad as I was expecting, but still on the verge of terrible. I mean, I had fun with my friends, taking pictures, and seeing everybody in pretty dresses, but it just wasn't what everyone makes it seem. Everybody looked absolutley BEAUTIFUL, however.

I probably should go now. I do still have to read Chapter 10, in To Kill A Mocking Bird, a book that I absolutley love. Also, I've started reading "New Moon" again, and it seems to be addictingly amazing. Last but of course not least, I have to read a few pages of the Mark chapter in my Bible.

I FINISHED MATHEW LAST WEEK (: Which makes me feel incredibly excited, and accomplished.

Then, of course, take my shower, and eat dinner.

This week has been rediculously slow. It's only freaking Tuesday.

But I love Wednesday's! Besides lifting. It's Youth In Action day!

Thursday's are usually okay, and Friday's are awesome, of course. Short class periods! Woot.

But Saturday is the most looked forward to event for this week. UIL competition. It is, however, only a practice meet but I do think it will be fun. (:

I'm doing Ready Writing, which is totally exciting, because I LOVE Ready Writing. Also, Mr. Pucas (mr. lucas) signed me up for "Feature Story Writing", in which was completely and totally against my will.

Oh well. Have a nice day.

I know this is a little late, but this is the blog where I say how my birthday went, and the like.

It was one of the best birthdays, I have ever experienced, haha.

The night before my birthday, Audrey and I, spent the night at Shelbie's. It was a lot of fun, of course. The next morning I woke up at about nine. When Shelbie and Audrey woke up, we basically sat there talking, like we always do. Then, Shelbie's hilarious mother came in to sing me Happy Birthday in a very funny manner. Then, we finally got up and going. We hung out for a while, and then Audrey had to leave. Me and Shelbie then ate a cinamon roll, after opening our birthday gifts from Audrey, and then went outside.

Next we played basketball. I'm not really sure why, but it seemed fun at the time, haha. Then, her mom took us to Dairy Queen. About the time we got back, my mom called and said that it was okay for me to come home now.

(I forgot to mention, I tried earlier to call my mom & she said she wasn't ready for me yet, haha).

So, she came and picked me up, told me happy birthday several times, and we drove home. When I walked into the kitchen, there was a big banner hanging from the curtain, and balloons scattered everywhere. On the table, sat a medium-sized box, wrapped in birthday paper, along with a flat gift. Then there was a small bag, and a few cards.

BUT, the most exciting part of all! There was a HUGE tray of fruit lying right in front of me. It had tons, and tons of oranges, apples, strawberry's, and grapes. It was just amazing.

So, while my mom baked my cake in the kitchen, I sat in the living room, eating my fruit and watching the Jon & Kate Plus 8 marathon, which happens to be my favorite show. So, when my mom got all finished with the cake, she allowed me to come in and see it. It was an adorable Volleyball cake, with "Happy Birthday Ashlee" and "15", written on it. I shrieked with excitment, and hugged her, thanking her.

She then got a really bad headache, so I insisted she take a nap. While doing so, my father got home. Then, my sister called informing us that she would not be able to make it home until six.

At six, she came home, and so I went to wake up my mom. (she had told me to when stef got home). Then, everyone gathered in the kitchen where I opened my presents, and cards.

From my Aunt, I got a gift card! From my other aunt, I got this extrememly cute red watch. It's adorable!

And from my LOVELY parents, I got MY CAMERAAA! It's beautiful, haha. It's a fujifilm, and it's extremely nice. I'm totally in the love with the thing.

So, anyway, I got to choose supper, which of course, I chose spaghetti! We ate supper, and then I blew out my candles. We then ate cake and ice cream.

After all of that good stuff, I played Stefani on the Wii, and schooled her in Tennis a good six times. It was great.

To end the wonderful day, my mom, stef, and I, all watched movies.

It was an AMAZING birthday!

I'm so thankful for everything everyone does to make me happy.(:

Well that's pretty much it.

I'm going to go take a shower, really quick.

can't believe it's '09! (:
