So the other day was my birthday, and of course all my friends who I might add are younger than me made it clear that I am getting old. Even though I’m only 20 my friends all commented that I’m two decades old and that I’m half way to forty. Wow thanks guys, but even with their comments I still had a great birthday. I didn’t really do much, but I had lots of my friends out for a bonfire which is always a good way to catch up with everyone. Besides what else is there to do in the middle of July when it’s only 70 degrees out. Now I am going to have to brag about my gift my boyfriend got me. Cowboy boots! Which I love and these are such nice boots!! My boyfriend really knows me well.
That gift was a perfect way to end my birthday.
Summer is the best part of the years and here is why….
1. Hot hot hot
3. Bronze skin
4. Summer concerts
5. Summer nights!
6. Swimming…enough said
7. My birthday of course :p
8. Spending time with friends
9. Shaved ice
10. And the best part of summer is driving my jeep with no top!! Yay!
What a great Fourth of July! It’s obviously my favorite holiday and everything was great, not to mention that the weather was perfect! What I love about the fourth is just spending time with friends and family, oh and I can’t forget lighting off tons of colorful fireworks. Fourth of July I think is the one holiday where everyone forgets about all the corruption and chaos that goes on in this country and we all really come together in many ways to celebrate the freedom our forefathers have given us.
We had our summer meeting for this month for PTK and I’m excited to start our PTK adventure to be a five start chapter. The theme we have decided on was medicine, though we aren’t yet for sure what angle we are going to take on it yet. But as our college project we have decided to help out our college by broadcasting John Wood to potentially gain some new students. One idea we have is going around to different local high schools and telling students how awesome John Wood is, which it really is. Either way I am totally down for promoting JWCC, because it really is a great school to start out with and I really enjoy attending this college. I can’t wait to get started with PTK, because it is a great honor to be a participant in.
Ok before I start my story for the day there’s some background information you need to know about me. I own a 98 jeep wrangler and she is my baby. Literally I am in love with jeeps; I act just like a dude when it comes to talkin about jeeps. So to start my story off I went to work yesterday with my door and windows off for eight hours. Now I watched the weather and the lady said there was a chance of scattered thunderstorms, but nothing until later tonight. So I figured well since we had a “chance” of rain in the forecast all week and it hasn’t rained yet that then I’d be fine. I was completely wrong as I looked out the window to find a down pour, but it gets worst the down poor never really stopped. At that point I figured I was screwed! As the evening went on the rain would slow down a bit and then continue to down pour. When it was barely raining I snuck out of work to check on my baby. Surprised I was to find that only the front was soaked and the back was completely dry and the fact that there was only about an inch of sitting water. Now one good thing about jeeps is that in the driver’s side and passenger’s there are plugs on the bottom to release the water. So after I drained out the water I checked to make sure she would start. Thankfully she did start up. Oh and I should probably mention that I don’t have carpet in my jeep so that makes this situation better. So after work I finally came to realization that at this point there is nothing I can do about the situation so there is no reason to be upset. Instead I hopped on to the soaking seat and drove myself home. Actually I enjoyed the ride home, because this was another experience I have been apart of in my life and I am all about life experiences. Oh an I must say that now my dash looks brand new :p
So I’m writing this as I’m icing my back. The first week of cheerleading is over and might I say we have a long way to go, but I have faith that we will be good once the season gets here. What I really like about my squad is that every one is so versatile! Which explains why I am icing my back. Usually I fly but today I was basing other girls, which if u don’t know cheer Lingo it means usually I am the one that is lifted up but today I was lifting other girls up. I guess I must of thought I was macho women and could do anything and now I am paying the price. All well I still don’t regret it and if I work at it I might be able to be invincible! Haha just messin, but I do want to be the best for my squad.
Finally I got a day just to hang out with the family. Since I seriously feel like my life keeps moving faster and faster. I thought I would have more time in the summer to do activities I want, but I work 5 days a week now with long hours. So the times I get to spend with my family I really value. So today was an extra special day, not only was it Father’s Day but also my mom’s birthday. Even though we didn’t do to much I still has been nice to just hang with my family. Family is huge to me and I often forget about how important each of my family members are to me, especially my parents. I appreciate what they do for me so much and love them more than anything. I found this quote by an unknown author that really sums up what we should all remember about our parents:
“Love your parents. We are so busy growing up, We often forget they are growing old.”
