Haha, so here I am again, making one of my few appearances on livejournal. :P
I went to Disneyland, and that was super fun! I don't have much to say about it other than that...
I got my AP scores, and I got a 5 on APUSH, a 5 on English, and a 2 on Calc, haha. If you don't know what AP is, it means Advanced Placement- you take the class, and then at the end of the year you can take the AP Exam to get a score 1-5 (1 being the worst and 5 being the best). If you get a 3 or above on the test, you can get college credit. I was so shocked when I opened up the envelope and saw that I had gotten 5s in APUSH and English. I totally wasn't expecting it, but I guess I was way better prepared for the tests than I thought. Calc, on the other hand... I got exactly what I predicted, haha. At least I didn't get a 1. :P
I start school again in less than a month. It's kind of got me freaking out. 0.0
Oh, I just remembered, I had these two really weird dreams while I was in Chicago this weekend... In one, I went through a whole day before realizing that it was my birthday. Haha. In the other one, this guy tried to kiss me, and I totally rejected him... Like "Ummm... no." It was not a guy I know, it was just some random guy my brain made up. It was really random, haha.
Haha, yeah. I suck at updating. :P
We won the state championship for lacrosse! Woohoo! The coaches promised us that if we won, we could go to Disneyland, so we leave this Friday to go to Disneyland for the weekend. I'm really excited because I've never been before.
I managed all As for second semester! Yay!
I'm going to start my Senior year of high school in a couple of months. O.O I've been looking at college stuff and it's all got me very freaked out. I start applying for colleges and scholarships in September.
I'm an aunt! My beautiful niece was born two weeks ago. :)
I've been working as a babysitter this summer. Normally I wouldn't mind, but... These kids are turning out to be brats. Thank goodness it's just a summer job and I'll never have to see them again once school starts.
Hmmm... Yeah, that's pretty much it.
I get all warm and fuzzy inside when I watch/listen to this.
Why have I spent the last 2 months, 2 hours a night practicing, as well as every other weekend out of town?
Apparently it was so that I could stand on the sideline and watch my team win.
So... I made a goal to read 100 books in 2008, and I fell two short of that goal. I'm not upset, though, I read more books in a year than most people read in 5 or 6 years... So yeah... Here's the list, if anyone's interested. :P

I GOT A 32 ON THE ACT!!!!!
I have no idea why, but my head hurts... I took some Advil, and that helped a little, but not enough. I can't figure it out. Usually if I get a headache, it's because I'm dehydrated or I have low blood sugar and need to eat. But neither of those fits, and I think I would remember it if I hit my head. Maybe I'm just tired and need to go to bed, but I don't usually get headaches when I'm tired. It's weird.
Anyway... I went to the midnight release party at Barnes & Noble for Breaking Dawn on Friday night, and I stayed up until 5 am Saturday reading it. Then I slept for 5 hours and I finished it by midnight. I could have finished it way earlier in the day, but I was sad to see it end. It was undoubtedly THE best book of the series so far and one of the best (if not THE best) books I have ever read. Stephenie Meyer has been holding out on us, I think, but it makes me excited to see what she'll write next.
I just got home from a lacrosse tournament in Chicago, and I'm suffering from some serious jet lag, so it's time for bed. Anyway, it was awesome fun, and I am terrible at posting on here. :P I shall have to write more soon. :)
BREAKING DAWN COMES OUT ON SATURDAY!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!
