Time to Waste...Not

It's been a while since I have posted a real livejournal entry, but I have finally decided that now is the time! Of course, the fact that I have a paper due tomorrow and I have not finished yet is not at all part of this sudden lj interest...:P Life has been pretty hectic for me, with the regulars of school and work, but not without fun times. Lately, the group here in Charlotte has been doing a fair amount of activities, and that certainly makes things interesting. Laser tag was very fun, and I found out that I am not half-bad at it. In fact, I am interested in playing it again, maybe this time at the feast when we can get a big group to go and we can play people we know.

This Monday I got sick for the first time in a while. It was a really sudden onset - one minute I was fine, then the next I noticed my throat was not feeling all that great, and before I knew it I had a full-blown cold. Every Monday I have classes from 3:45 to about 9, so it was a really long day, and I was not feeling my best by the time I got home. I was looking forward to getting a good night's sleep since I did not have to work until 10 on Tuesday morning, but as things go, I got a call at 5:30 Tuesday morning from one of my co-workers asking me if I could fill in for the morning shift person. It actually was not all that bad - I actually got to go home and rest for the rest of the day without any interruptions.

I seem to have delayed my paper long enough, so I must get back to working!

Random Stuff

Okay, time for a short and sweet update! Lately I have been pretty busy with school...yaddi yaddi yadda. I think I say that every time. Anything exciting? I'm learning guitar! Yes, it is true! I am beginning with easier chords and such, and it is difficult at times but so much fun. I'm hoping that at the feast I will be good enough that I can buy an electric one! Hopefully I find one I want- I am thinking a pale pink with white polkadots- but that may be a bit too specific, so I would pretty much be happy with any electric, within reason, of course.

Here's my baby!

Fall Out Boy! I got their new cd and it is really good. It's definitely different from their previous album, From Under the Cork Tree, and in my opinion, better. However, the new Evanescence cd isn't as good as their older one. A bit of a disappointment, but I can live with it *sighs*.

Do you know what rocks? Supernatural! But I won't go on and on about it, just go watch it! I know I could watch it all day!

Lately I have been having a lot of fun at volleball on Sundays. I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden I have a crazy/hyper energy once I start and I don't seem to lose it the whole game. Everyone is getting really good! I'm hoping to have a team for Louisville this year, if I go, so if anyone is interested, let me know, and practice! :P

Speaking of volleyball, at the very end of January, I twisted my ankle terribly while playing an intense game of volleyball. The results were disastrous. My ankle swelled like crazy and turned a nasty purple color that stayed for weeks! Even now, it is stiff and not its normal size.

Prepare for grossness!

I'll throw in some randomness here: It snowed a few weeks ago so we got a few inches. Anyway, we had enough to make several snowmen; the best one being Bobby. Yes, Johnny and I built the ultimate snowman, who even had a berry brain. He is great! And he is still alive! There is one little clump of ice still on the ground that is what is left of Bobby. Hopefully he will stay there for as long as possible.

Well, I'm off to read a book! Tata!

NUMERO UNO: hey you have one green eye and one blue eye!

$One day there was a princess named taylor. she was pretty. no no wait, gorgeous.
*But her best friend, Courtney, was another princess who was pretending to be a poor poor guitarist.
$this was kinda gross.
*She liked rain.
$thank heavens!
*Anyway, one day Courtney and Taylor were playing dress up when a fairy godmother appeared.
$and taylor said, I wanna brick castle, you know, the one thats NOT vinyl sided!
*The fairy godmother smiled and granted her wish! Then she turned to Courtney and asked her what she wanted.
$i want a magical unicorn. named randy AHAAHAHAAA. *crazy laugh*
*The fairy godmother said, "Sure! He's all yours!" and BLING! there he was.
$and courtney rode her new pony so much that she got pony-sick.
*She wanted the fairy godmother to come back and turn that pony into something else!
$something shiny.
*and HOT!
*ANYWAY...she cried and cried for that fairy godmother to come back, but she wouldn't come.
$and so shes like, gah im so hungry. where is my gucci bag when i need it??
*Taylor came over laughing. "Hahaaaaaaahaha!!! Food is good! I ate it all and I'm not fat!"
$okay she didnt SAY this but she was thinking it.
*Courtney became angered because she could not find any food, so she threw a temper tantrum and screamed.
$and taylor (being the cool person she is) was all like, chill out. if you wanna scream like that, go to alaska with your home dogs.
*"I don't have any dogs! I have a unicorn!" Courtney screamed at the top of her lungs.
$taylor left because she remembered she had somewhere more important to be. booya.
*This made Courtney MADDER than ever! " I am going to find that stupid fairy godmother and make her fix everything!" So she left.

Ipod dreams and more

Yes, it is true! I am getting an ipod! Tomorrow is my official Ipod Day, because it is supposed to arrive. I have been tracking it and FedEx said that it departed the Charlotte location, supposedly to deliver tomorrow. I am soooooooooooo x ten billion excited! It is a white, 30g beauty. Yes, I am obsessed. :P

I had an assignment pop up on me yesterday. It turns out that Home School Legal Defense Association is holding an essay contest, and my mother wanted me to enter. She did not exactly say it like that, but she did the old, "only if you want to" line, which is an indirect command in which she tells you that you will disappoint her if you do not enter. SO! I am entering the contest, and I am interested. I am supposed to write it on perspective, and how a person, place, or thing gives perspective. It is a bit challenging, but I think I can make it by the deadline, which is next Monday.

The Feast was awesome! I had a great time with everyone and I cannot wait until next year! I think it was my best feast ever. That may also be due to the fact that I did not have to share a room with my brothers but with Lacey and Sarah, which was so much fun!

My mom and I are hosting a baby shower for Aunt Jenn sometime in mid-December. Right now we are still planning and have to finalize a date with the expectant mother, but it looks like it will either be December 10 or 17, I think.

Thanks for sticking with me, and until next time! -Courtney
