I remember when I got into the leadership class, I was still pretty conflicted-with leadership, I would have seven classes in junior year. I felt pretty ready to drop the class and go on with my life, but, for some reason, I stuck with it. Throughout the year I felt that I got to know a lot of people, but I knew it was still pretty superficial. Today's leadership development just showed me how little I know about this whole class, each individual, and myself. I realized that I was so caught up in my own little world and I was SO sheltered. It was insane. I know I didn't cry, but it really broke my heart, knowing that you guys have been through so much more than I had, and yet, I had placed myself at a higher priority than all y'alls. I love you guys so much, and I know I made the right decision sticking with Leadership 08-09.

It has been a little more than 2 weeks since my last post. How sad. Aren't blogs supposed to be, like, diaries or something, where people post on it religiously and document every single moment of their entire lives?
Well anyways, it has been super encouraging seeing the number of people that actually look at my blog. I saw that there have been almost 50! I don't know if some of them read it out of pity for me (ohh look at Ashley isn't she cute, writing her own blog and trying to grow a chimney), or out of pure reverence for my awesome, but whatever. It's actually kind of weird to see that people care about my ramblings, but, I think its pretty important to make sure that I'm not writing this for an audience of like, 50 (or 3, which would be the actual number of people who read every single one of my posts) but more for an audience, of, well, me. That way, I won't second guess myself on my lame jokes that is only funny to me and ridiculously lame to others (it makes them laugh because I'm so pathetic, right?).
Sometimes I find myself thinking about good blog topics, like how German is quite possibly the coolest awkward language in the world (with their schliden schnlargen bhargen beer weinerschnitzel oktober fest but the UBER messed up spelling, or how I tried to sneak out but let my mom know and then ended up NOT sneaking out, or how when someone talks about blogs I say, "I have a blog!" but only to be shot down with the phrase, "uh. You only have 2 posts."
Most of the time my inspiration is like that.
No worries though, I think I'm going to try doing this from now on instead of playing blockes on iminlikewithyou or watching lame videos of indian guys getting beat up by other indian guys (look it up, it's actually pretty funny-search: how can she slap indian).
the night before I do my internship hw or actual hw...
I think I'm going to go play blockles now.

Happy New Year!
Actually, why do people even care? Honestly, I think that its just another celebration for people to get cheery about. like boxing day. What were those people thinking when they thought of that idea?? I mean, come on, you honestly think you can top a celebration on the day before? decked out with gifts and spending of money? no.
So anyways, I wanted to start off the new year with, hey what do you know, something that fits my new years resolution!! Yay, feeling productive. I don't think this blog really has a theme or whatever; I think I'm just going to list some of my New Years Resoultions.
Go JOGGING-Every year I list this one. I think it's because I know that in six months people are going to start looking at my tummy, and I certainly do NOT want them to see flabby lard. I've also heard of something called a runner's high. Wonder what that is...
Stop Thinking I'm older than I actually am- I think, when I hang out with my 09er buds, I feel that I'm going to college in six months too, so I subconciously think I have college apps to return to when I get home, but instead of college apps, I have College Board. Curse you.
Devos-I even committed to writing devotions for Snow Retreat, but, after doing that, I realized that um, I haven't even done devos in, like, 2 months. I think, at first, it was because I would do them at night before I went to bed, I didn't want my "school knowledge" that I studied to leak out of my brain. Maybe if I did them right after school. I heard that statistics show that more information is retained when it is the last thing that is studied before sleeping. I also heard that you can get cancer from just about anything, and not even a plastic bubble will save you, because some types of plastics leech cancer-inducing toxins.
Neosporin-This isn't really a new years resolution, but more of a great idea. If I bring Neosporin with me everywhere, maybe I'll stop getting so many infections from my stupid accidents! During finals, I got a carpet burn from playing Spoons, and that freaking thing got infected! Neosporin could have averted that.
So that's all of them for now (more like all that I could remember)! Happy New Year!!
