The Meaning Of Life

I have figured out the meaning of life! Let me share it with you-- "The period between the birth and death of a living thing, esp. a human being." at least according to the dictionary. Life has many meanings, to some the meaning is all of those little story morals, and they choose one and relate it to a bunch of things in life. Some people think all those little life lessons, you know like "Don't judge a book by its cover" and "Never give up" some people put them all together to make the meaning which in this case is, "There are always lessons to learn on making you a better person, never stop learning." Something kind of cheesy like that. To a ot of people it is "Live every day as if it were you're last." Which makes sense, don't let yourself have a bad day but not every day is a walk in the park. To others it is the secret of life, which no one has discovered yet. And, yet to some there is o meaning of life. Well, at least my definition and knowledge if there are so many meanings, then maybe there is none in particular. Or maybe as some kind of gift each indivisual of the world has their own secret meaning. To me the meaning is, all those little things that make up your life. From Saturday morning cartoons, to Saturday morning trips to the grocery store. From visits to Six Flags, to boring geography homework. The simple things, and the more complex. Thinking about which sandwhich to take for lunch, to deciding which college to go to. All those little and big and little moments from the fights with you're little sister, to the family reunions every summer. It makes a difference.

4. Something I hate is chain e-mails! They are soo stupid and pointless. People who are bored and have no life spend time making them and passing them on to there weird friends. Here are some stupid ones I have got. Think about it if I don't e-mail 10 people then I will die? Kinda weird.

A few years ago, a mother and father decided they needed a break,so
they wanted to head out for a night on the town. So they called their
most trusted babysitter. When the babysitter arrived,the two children
were already fast asleep in bed. So the babysitter just got to sit
around and make sure everything was okay with the
children. Later at night,the babysitter got bored and went to watch tv
but she couldn't watch it downstairs because they didnt have cable
downstairs (the parents didn't want the children watching too much
garbage). So she called them and asked them if she could watch cable
in the parents' room.Of course the parents said it was ok, but the
babysitter had one final request. She asked if she could cover up the
clown satue in their bedroom with a blanket or cloth, because it made
her nervous.The phoneline was silent for a moment, and the father who
was talking to the babysitter at the t imesaid....'Take the children
and get out of the house....we'll call the police...we don't have a
clown statue.' the children and the babysitter got murdered by the
clown. It turned out to be that the clown was a killer that escaped
from jail. If u don't send this to 15 ppl within the next 5 minutes
the clown will be standing next to your bed at 3:00 am with a knife in
his hand....put the subject as your school. GOOD LUCK

are like apples
on trees. The best ones
are at the top of the tree.
The boys don't want to reach
for the good ones because they are
afraid of falling and getting hurt.
Instead, they get the rotten apples
from the ground that aren't as good,
but easy. So the apples up top think
something is wrong with them, when in
reality they're amazing. They just
have to wait for the right boy to
come along, the one
who's brave enough to
climb all
the way
to the top
of the tree.

You have been hit. You have been considered one of the 15 prettiest girls on my friends list.
Once you have been hit, you have to hit 15 pretty girls.
If you get hit again you know you're really pretty. If you break the chain, you'll have ugliness for 10 years.
So hit 15 pretty girls on your friends list and let them know they are pretty, and don't just hit someone because they're your friend... be truthful. They'll understand.... or maybe not ^__^
Oh, and P.S. - I think we all know who those rotten apples on the bottom of the tree are...

I got a chain e-mail for ya'!

If you don't pass this on to 7 people in the next hour, nothing will happen!

3. Coolest Song Of The Week!

A Little Bit Of This, A Little Bit Of That

5. Nation Wide is not on my side! When I fall down at school, Nation Wide isn't there to help me up. When a girl or boy is being a jerk, Nation Wide isn't there to back me up on my comebacks. You have to pay for them. If they we're really on my side, they'd be my friend, and not make me pay them. So here's the down-low on insurance companies.

The Terrorist Random Belated Wednesday Top Five

Sorry it's a bit late. Better late then never, right?
Big Deal Over America
Big deal! That's what I think in my head when the teachers at open house say "The Work Is A Lot Harder This Year", that's what I think when my mom says "This year is a preperation year for 7th grade, because next year counts for 1 third of high school, that's what I think when anyone says, Today is the 7th anniversery of 9/11. I'll tell you something, it has been 7 years since 9/11 and yes, I agree it was a horrible thing for America. And yes, I know many people lost loved ones. But you know what? It's ok to remember but why spend time reliving the bad parts of our history? A century from now, a class of school kids will be learning about this, and if I'm still alive then my grandkids will be using me for a report on it and what it felt like. I was only little when it happened, I only knew the towers crashed my dad wouldn't tell me anything else. I knew it was bad it was all that was on TV. Weeks after, I was hearing about people who survived the crash. And yes, I agree that terrorists suck. But you knoiw what? That's behind us. I can't say that it'll never happen again. But sonme people are thinking "What Can I Do?" the answer is, "Let It Be" that's all you can do. And it's been 7 years

The Top Five On My A-List This Week

5. I, Splotchy "My Obligatory September 11th Post"
4. Grant Miller Media. "Why I Will Never Be A PTA Parent"
3. A Cup Of Coffey "Gone Fishin"
2. Johnny Yen "The First--and Last-- Time I Saw You"
1. This One Is Older- But It's A great Post! Gordy 'Cuse

The Coolest And Saddest Song Of The Week

Let It Be My Favorite Song (Or At Least My Favorite Beatles Song)

Older Then 21

I know how to flatter adults. I say "Wow! 21 Years That's Old Enough To Drink!" My grandma turned 79 yesterday congrats to her! 79 years is a long time. Longer then 21. But I like making my grandma feel special. i call her yesterday, and she goes "I went out to lunch and got some lovely silk flowers" that's what I love about my grandma, she's easy to please. It seems that all the birthdays are in September I know at least 10 September birthdays. Maybe January/December is a popular time to get pregnant.

Yeah, well that's it for now. Sorry its not 5. Many years of Therapy and you'll get over it. :)

You're So Vain You Proably Think Economy Is All About You!

Well, It's Sunday again here I am at my desk chair with a weekend of memories, a light load of homework, plans for the next week, and ambitions for the new week. Have any of you ever thought about the fact that although Sunday is truly the new week, everyone considers Monday the start of the new week. Well, I had a typical weekend. Sleepover with my friends, and hung around my house then I went out to lunch today. With my mom's friend, who happens to work at the newspaper. They were talking about economy,and that got me thinking about things. Thousands a day being laid-off for no apparent reason, last June I blogged about money. Back then, I was blogging about how money isn't everything. The way I see it, you're health is what makes you live so that is important, you're feeling are how you live an exciting life and that's free, and family, friendship, and love is how you live life in my opinion. But in order to know how you're health is, you need money for a doctor and to keep a healthy health, you need money for food and medicine. In order to get ceartin types of feelings you need money. For example, to feel sad without being hurt you need money to buy a trashy romance novel. To feel sad for free, get a boyfriend who will cheat on you. You need money to live, so yes in a way money is everything. But money can't buy happiness, which is the best thing in the world and it's free. But unfortunately, happiness can't stop you from getting cancer, or starving to death. Everyoner is waiting for the election to make changes. Why wait until the election? Why not make changes now, start saving the enviorment now and keep in mind, if you're reading this right now and you we're laid-off hang in there and were all in this together.

The Beat Goes On

Well, it's Wednesday again time for my Wednesday tops. Only this time, it's not my summer vacation anymore, it's my school year. As I blog, I am wearing my school uniform and my homework is done! (Thank god)

1. First Day
Well, on Tuesday morning, I walked on to the astro turf field with butterflies in my stomach. As it turns out, this year going into middle school I get electives. I have the same recess period as my friends in my other class. I like everyone in my class so far, homework is not bad. And the writing is something I can actually relate to without being bored, so yes the writing is challenging with interesting topics. Plus, we get to read the book I've wanted to read!

2. A House Is Not A Home, Until Now
Well, it's been three years since my mom and I moved into my step-dad's house. And on record that's about as long as I have lived in a house with my mom. See, it's been a weird cycle, my mom and dad got divorced when I was in kindergarten. they both moved into a apartment. My dad moved into a ratty, small one (No Offense, Dad) and my mom moved into a nice bigger one. In about first grade, my dad met someone and we moved into a nicer, bigger apartment. In about second grade, my mom and I had too much space, so we moved to a still nice, but smaller buggier house. (No Offense, Mom) In a neighborhood with a occasional cub drunk. The same year, my dad and I moved to where we lived with my mom when I was in Pre-K. But this time, it was with my step-mom and the house had been re-done. My old room had become a pantry. Then about a year later, my mom and I settled down in our best home with my step-dad and step-brother. I was in 3rd grade when this happened. i am now in middle school . As for my dad's we have lived in the same building since I was in second grade but early this past summer we moved upstairs. So three years living with my family in this house. (My mom's family) But Johnny Yen and Z Evil Dictator have lived here for 10 years! Blows me out of the water. But it's nice to be contributed in those 10 years. :)

5. Peyton's Rainbow

I don't remember if I have blogged about my little cousin Peyton. She is two. She has had Leukimia twice. She had a bonemero at the beginning of the summer. She has to stay in isolation for 150 days. She is allowed to see her mom, dad, grandparents they just have to be careful about who comes in and who doesn't. She is like a rainbow, she is pretty and full of hope, but if the sunshines through (In this case if the rain comes) she could disappear. However, she is 41 days in and she is being taken off steroids. (Thank God!) With hope, she may be able to come out of "Ronald Mcdonald" house sooner then we thought so she is way better. Keep the fingers crossed. :)

Well, there's the top five. Those are my Wednesday tops.

Less Than Labor

Well, I am back from Wisconsin. It came and went, luckily the weekend went very slowly. Thursday morning, at 10:45 (They were late) I got into the very back of a blue mini-van with my best friend. We we're excited and talked about everything that we would do on the trip. Before the trip, I was thinking "Gee, I want to hang out with my friend this weekend but I also hope we can have some alone time" Well we did. By the time we got there on Thursday, everyone was ready for a nap, and a long walk on the beach. The cabin was pretty, it had three bed rooms and it had games. (My favorite was original Yathzee) I shared a room with my friend, and her annoyingly cute little sister. We had debated about who slept where earlier, and it came to be that me and my friend didn't want the top bunk. For me, it was not fun going up and down, the ladder felt hard, she felt the same. So it came to be that her little sister slept up there for the whole visit. I got the full size bottom (Yes!) my friend comfortably agreed that she wanted the floor. (I don't like the floor.)
On the first day, we did a lot of fun things. We started the day by going out to eat, at a restaurant that had goats on the roof. It was a swedish joint, the food wasn't half bad. Then we past "Pirate Mini Golf" it had go-carts, and we could not pass up the opportunity. I went around maybe 20-25 times in 10 minutes or less. And I didn't crash!!!! I always crash! But the steering wheels actually worked this time. Then my personal favorite part of the trip, we rented a pontoon boat for two hours. It was fun, and my friends dad who was with us stripped down to his boxers, and jumped into 30 foot water. i was going too, but they said the famous "No" Then we went to get huge scoops of 1 pound ice cream. Best ice cream I've had all summer in my opinion. Next day, we were beach bums and I dug a 2 and a half feet deep hole. We went out for a good dinner, and another huge ice cream. Then we went back to the cabin and did a fire pit, and we told stories (Ghost Stories) and looked at the stars. i am a city girl, but in Chicago you can't see the beauty of the stars.
And yesterday we left early and took a fairy over too some island. Very small island population of about 700. (Maximum!) They have one school Pre-K to 12th grade! And last year, there was only 87 kids in the school. And those were the 87 kids in town. We toured around there, and I realized something, this was so small. One of the stops on the tour was a little petting zoo, mainly a few animals (A bear!) and that is considered their big attraction. Imagine, knowing everybody in you're town, so everywhere you go you see people. No strangers whatsoever!
We ended the visit with a game of "Apples To Apples" very funny game. The basic rules are:
There is a judge who puts down a card with a adjective on it, and the players put down a noun, or proper noun that in their opinion best describes the word. It can be very entertaining.

So anyway, my friend's little sister is only 7 (The game is for 12 and up) so she tagged teamed with her dad. She drew the card Sexy from the deck. Being seven, her dad would've been a better pick. I had nothing in my hand so I put Salvador Dali and my friend's mom put down Indiana Jones. I forget what the my mom, and friend put down. So between those two, the 7-year old who loves Indiana Jones said, "Indiana Jones Is Not Sexy!" And she picks Salvador Dali. If I were judge, I would have picked Indiana Jones. (Shia Labouf Is In His Latest Movie, and he is very sexy)

One more thing, I had to go to the bathroom on the small island. And the lady pointed to the restroom area. I ran there, and I opened the door there was a TV, some games a kitchen and a guy. I said "Is This A House?" and he said "Yeah" I thought it was the bathroom. :)

Great Weekend!
